And I’m posting late again. I do not have a good excuse this week. I was just Tired all week. Had fun with friends last night, even if it was freezing cold. Went to a family owned Italian restaurant for lunch today. It was nice. I realized I haven’t really gone to family owned businesses in a very long time. So many chains around here.

School is going alright, these couple weeks are pretty quiet in the lead up to the final projects. I really do appreciate that she has had us doing bits of the projects all through the semester. Still waiting on final grade on the group project in the other class.

Store is almost full up on holiday hires, but we’ve got a few more spots open if anyone is looking. I think we even have a full managerial staff these days.

Getting Organized September 4, 2014

Didn’t use a planner for my summer classes, but had to break down and get one for the fall semester. I was just getting confused because my classes are so similar. It’s all in the book now, and sorted out. Lots of work to do, and one very unfortunately timed final project. But, it should work out alright. The other final project is timed excellently, giving me two weeks with nothing but it to work on, owing to the fact that the class ends the week after Thanksgiving. The projects for both look pretty awesome, so it should be good.

Pharmacy frustrations galore. I know it’s my fault for not ordering refills ahead of time, but three days running they keep telling me “maybe we’ll have it tomorrow.” Though today’s added bonus was being confusing and telling me they were going to call my doctor, as though to switch my script to something else. No, thanks, I don’t want something else, I want the drugs that I’m taking and that are working. I don’t care if you have to call another distributor, that’s not my business, do what you have to do, just get the medications, or I’ll go somewhere else, thank you. So, I haven’t had my meds all week other than Naproxen. I slept for four hours when I got home yesterday, was up for about four, and then slept hard all night.

Anybody need a job? Anybody that will actually show up and not quit after a couple weeks? We’ve got a lot of positions open if you’re willing to work retail with cafe. Manager on down. Full and part time. And soon, we’ll be doing seasonal hiring, too. Wee fun.  On a related note, anyone need a half-way-through-my-degree librarian? 😉
