I am less in love with work -- yes, I AM making more money in this new position (almost 1000 this month!) but it still sucks. The month just started on 12/31, and I looked on the computer yesterday. Not counting my $2200 in sales yesterday, I was at 4k for the month. There was one person in the 3k's, and the other 6 were in the 2ks. So... WHY do I only have 25 hours for next week? WTF? Keep in mind that this is including the post-Christmas slow down, returns, and the fact that for two days our computers were offline, making it difficult to sell ANYTHING, let alone something we have to order or send to the back for pickup. It's been 2.5 years that I've worked there, and I haven't had all that much to show for it. I counted the other day. In 2006, I worked: New Year's Day, the day after New Years, Valentine's, Easter, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Halloween, Day before Thanksgiving, the day after Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, day after Christmas, and New Year's Eve. Plus, New Year's Day and the day after in 2007. Especially ridiculous because my manager has had half of those holidays off.
I finished my CNA class 12/16. I'm still waiting to hear for when I go to take the state test so I can get my certificate and start working. I applied at the hospital in town. They called me to come take a test, then they called me for an interview, and another interview with a tour, and then a third interview with another tour of the other hospital I would be working at. But unfortunately they can't hire me until I have my certificate. But when I go to take the test, I find out if I passed it that day, so she said to call back after I find out and they'll see if they have an open position. Poo.
My boyfriend and I are super. Even though he moved to a city about an hour away, and now we only see each other every other week or so. Because my manager is a retard and likes to make me work 5 days in a row, have one off, come in for two days, have another day off, come in for another day, have a day off, etc. So I never get a chance to go anywhere.
So there's the big update that will last me until July. ha.
