Taking things a day at a time

Going down just to get back up

Yesterday was one of the worst days at work. Bad luck through the entire shift:
-My cut from Monday had reopened, so it was practically impossible for me to work fast and roll the cookies. I took so long, Kristine had to eventually take over while I just cupped the bite size.
-All of a sudden my iPod just froze and stopped playing. I freaked the fuck out and thought that it was broken and now I had to get another one. But once TC came he restarted it. Whew.
-The register's final paperwork of the whole day wasn't printing out, so we had to call Chandal and ask her how to fix it.
-Then once we got the register to print it out, the paper started feeding itself back in and so it was rolled in itself and stuck in the register!!
-We haven't had bleach to mop the floors with for a week! It's absolutely disgusting and makes everything smell like wet dog. It's gross. I have no fucking idea why no one ordered any because we get shipment from the warehouse TWICE a week, so Christie (manager) is just a dumbass.
-The drawer money was off by one fucking penny!! Because I added that penny in so that the coins would be even, but I shouldn't have done that because then...

Our deposit money ended up being $666. WHAT THE FUCK?!

And that penny that I added...I picked it up off the ground, but it was TAILS up. So that fucked me over, and I blame that damn penny for all the shitty things that happened.

Ugh, and that stupid phone is still taunting me. Oh, and another crappy thing that happened was that I found out my phone doesn't even have a SIM card!! How the hell does that work? I thought they all would have SIM cards. But even TC looked and mine doesn't have one. Also, the "record" and "speaker phone" buttons on my phone are switched. So when I press the "record" button I'm actually turning on "speaker phone" and vice versa.

Far Away Places Friday:
Angkor Wat, Cambodia

We just covered South East Asia in art, and Angkor Wat is one of the Buddhist temples that is so famous, not only for its worship but also for its architecture and art style. The tallest stupa (the pagoda in the middle of the first pic) is 214 ft. tall! It's gigantic. All made out of stone, too. I'm not sure how I feel about venturing out to Cambodia, but I do admire the lifestyle of the monks. I can't picture doing that, removing myself from the modern world and just...praying, every single day. Although I do always giggle when I see the Buddha's (they're really just monks but I like calling them Buddha's) at Foodland, driving in a pickup truck or something. :P

I did get some new stuff recently. :)

Wednesday we went to Ross and I picked up the DVD of Forrest Gump. Cheee! I have it on VHS but DVD is a must. Also, got a mug to take to Alessa when I'm in Oregon. It's got the Beatles walking across Abbey Road. And I got a new backpack for school. It's black, but the front part of it has a purple background, with black/grey clouds, stars, hearts, and LIGHTNING BOLTS!

Then yesterday I picked up two books from Borders. Into the Wild by John Krakauer and Family Happiness by Leo Tolstroy. Into the Wild is one of my favorite movies, and I fucking love Emile Hirsch. I was really into this movie when it first came out in '07 but I never got around to reading Krakauer's book. So I figured I might as well do that now. And "Alex" is reading Family Happiness during his Alaskan adventure, so I'm gonna read that too.

I guess I should start on my art assignments soon. I have to draw a mask and decorate according to my personality and things I'm interested in. The examples she showed were mostly decorated with the flags of the person's ethnicities, which I'm assuming is what most people will do. I don't wanna be generic though. The other thing I gotta do is a grid project. I have to find a picture in a magazine and copy it onto a grid, then adapt that smaller image to a larger sketchbook size. That's gonna be tough. :/

Song of the day: "Now and Forever" by Richard Marx

Oh man! You bought me a Beatles mug??? That's the coolest thing ever. That's really cool. Thanks! You are getting the biggest hug ever when I see you next, one because you bought me something A-FREAKING-MAZING, and two, because I miss the shoes off of you!

Sorry I haven't been on lately, I can't seem to get my blog to work... it won't show me updates of anyone's blogs... it's really weird. PLus, I have been crazy busy.

Can't wait to see you!

Also, bummer about work... that was my luck the other day. Just shitty thing after shitty thing happening.

Hey Zaida! sorry i have been slacking with the blogging lately. I've been really busy stressing over the Korea thing...which I am about to write about in a blogpost. But hopefully I'll write more regularly!
oh, i'm following your writing blog now too. I'm going to read through it and leave comments in a little bit!

Sorry about your beyond crappy day at work. Way lame.

I haven't read Into the Wild either. I've thought about buying it, but I'm not sure if I will. I did enjoy the movie, though.


Now, I'm going to reply to the comments you left on my blog, haha.

-I did write that letter, but I didn't send it anywhere. I wrote it just for the purpose of the blog, haha.

-That guy's dad on Twitter is probably one of the funniest things I've come across in a while. It makes me wish I knew this guy, or could at least hear his voice so I could have it in my head as I read the tweets.

-Sometimes I hate that Americans have a rep of being stupid. I understand it, but I hate it since I don't considered myself to be stupid in that sense.

-I was the only student at that dinner. It was pretty cool.

-I think Hercules was part of One Saturday Morning. If not then it was on TV during the same time as One Sat. Morning, maybe on the Disney Channel instead of ABC.

Also, that problem Alessa is/was having with Blogger not showing updates was the same problem I was having for a while.
