Today I got a call back from a place I applied to, and they're giving me a job.

~A JOB~

This is so exciting that I'm honestly having trouble breathing.

I feel like I need a list because otherwise this is never getting out with anything that resembles coherency.

1.] As most of you know, I've been searching pretty hard for a new job since... [checks posts] Wow, holy fuck. Since SEPTEMBER. IT IS SUCH A RELIEF, YOU GUYS. I'm honestly still happy-crying.

2.] I can't believe I've been desperately unhappy with my job since SEPTEMBER. That was really the turning point for me and I made a post about it because I was so mad.

3.] There have been other issues since that point, the worst of which was actually just this last weekend when my boss made me cry and threw my personal issues and decisions back in my face after I told her about them in confidence and generally just said "fuck it" to anything resembling being a nice person to me or a decent boss. Seriously, it's not acceptable to threaten to reduce someone's hours as an intimidation technique when you know they have no other income. It was really fucking low, guys. YDEK. I thought I'd be able to still pick up festival weekends with her, because that would be a nice 10 hours every 2-3 weeks during the summer for cash, but now I DON'T THINK SO.

4.] I don't even know what to do right now. I'm just so excited and happy.

5.] AND NEXT COMES "NERVOUS AS SHIT ABOUT SCREWING THIS UP" BUT I THINK THAT CAN WAIT UNTIL TOMORROW MAYBE.

6.] About the job itself: it's just being a gas station attendant, but I'm *starting* at what I currently make, I'll get at least a few more hours, it's close, and I bet they pay on time and release schedules like a REAL BUSINESS.

Things happened today, and I just feel like posting them. IDK.

1.] Worked. Meh. Thankfully I've had some conversations with my boss that are leading to "new job."

2.] Fell on my ass and knocked the wind out of myself. THIS FUCKING SUCKS AND IS TERRIFYING.

3.] I capslocked Tolkien feelings for nearly 4 consecutive hours. This was a combination of Elrond-feels, Celeborn-feels, Galadriel-feels, Glorfindel/Ecthelion kinda shippy but mostly romantic friendship feels OUT THE FUCKING WAZOO, and like... a tirade about the Three Rings of Power? I DON'T KNOW ANYMORE. I know there were also House of Durin feels, but that surprises no one.

4.] Lisa was drunk texting and tweeting tonight, and she's probably gonna be like "WHAT" when she sees how many of them I fav'd, but I couldn't stop myself. [It's because you're delightful, bb, and you really turned my mood for the day around SOMEHOW.]

5.] GLORFINDEL/ECTHELION. Honestly guys, I challenge you to find anyone who even ships them or KNOWS WHO THEY ARE AND THINKS ANYTHING ABOUT THEM SHARING SPACE OR KNOWING EACH OTHER that even comes close to my completely irrational and partially-baseless feelings.

6.] I've come to realize that I desperately need a personal headcanon about dwarven culture that somehow gives lady dwarves agency and strength within the constraints of their canonically-stated reality. I NEED THIS. I'll probably end up typing it up, let's be honest.

7.] I've managed to wrangle the weekend before New Years off. SOMEONE MENTIONED ABSINTHE. I apologize in advance.

It looks like my aid should be ok? I just got a notice that they adjusted it and I panicked, but then I realized they had adjusted it because I had only registered for 6 credits. I was waiting for the placement test today to allow me into the others I wanted. \0/ [My placement test scores were actually kind of awesome.]

Classes:

  • Contemporary American Society [Waitlisted.]
  • Social Media Campaigns
  • Climate and Climate Change [Funded by NASA. I will get PAID for parts of this.]
  • Intro Comparative Politics

Hopefully this goes ok.

[I got my free bus pass today! YAY. This saves me $55 per month.]

Well... this fucking sucks.

I might be out of a job soon. Yeah, I bitch about my boss all the goddamn time, but it's actually a pretty good job. The boss is actually the #1 downside, and the good usually far out-weighs the bad. Once my assigned tasks for the day are completed, I can do homework or dick around on the internet. That means that some days I'm getting paid to do my homework and other days I'm getting paid to stock/inventory and some days I'm getting paid to read mega-hot slash fic for hours at a time. I honestly can't imagine a much sweeter set up than that. Can you?

Anyway, the prevailing winds are bringing some serious shit in my direction and I'm not feeling very confident atm. My usual week is 21-28 hours. That's not huge or anything, but now it's getting to the point where I'll be scheduled for a 7 hour shift and my boss will come in and work 2 hours of it and send me home early. Last week I worked 11 hours, and I might have even less this week. >.< Not. Good.

So, on top of that [because CLEARLY I need more bullshit in my life right now], my new school is dicking me around about financial aid. Turns out my program [which was half chosen on a whim, because any one of like 10 programs would get me what I needed to transfer] has more stringent GPA requirements for financial aid than like... the other 9. Now I think it will be cutting it close [like 0.15 or something] to my cumulative and no one will give me a straight answer about if I'm qualified and they won't let me change programs until the semester is in progress... at which point I'll have been fucked out of my aid. AAAAAAAAHHHH. I swear to god I am going to curl up in a ball and die if that Econ class screwed me up completely. I WILL DIE.

If my aid doesn't go through, I won't be able to pay my goddamn rent, and if my job falls through I won't be able to pay my goddamn rent. I HATE EVERYTHING. Looks like it's time to job hunt like a motherfucker. Maybe I can find something in the town I live in, so I don't have to waste 2 hours per day on commuting. I was looking at job listings the other day, and there seem to be some babysitting gigs that would fit my life/schedule.

Srsly guys. If shit comes in threes, I'm so fucked when the third problem comes rolling down on me.
