So, to clarify:

In July I had jury duty for the state of Massachusetts.

I just got called for Federal Grand Jury. Which, really, would be amazing to do, at least for a while. Because you do it one day a week for 12-18 months. So it would get old.

But um... I'm not commuting back and forth from Richmond to Boston once a week. Fuck that shit.

So I have to fill out the response from and send them a letter "detailing the reasons for the request" to be excused for undue hardship. Um... yeah. So there's no reason I shouldn't be able to get out of it. But I'm paranoid anyway and I asked the associate dean of the Honors College to write a note as well. Because... yeah. Not taking any chances, kthx. Didn't think I'd have to go last time either, and wound up wasting 6 hours that day.

The reason I got called again: Federal jury duty doesn't care if you've served for the state unless it was more than five days. Massachusetts can't call me for another three years, but these guys are like "lol no." Not sure how long it will be til they can call me again after this.

But really... let's wait til I'm living in MA full time again, kay?

Ah, fuck. I just looked up my math teacher on ratemyprofessor.com...

"I have always breezed by all Math courses with an A. This man makes problems so hard its just not neccessary. Cannot practice from the book because those problems are much easier."

"Lets just say I was turned off by several things:he's a smelly redneck, dresses badly, gives incredibly hard problems for homework. Tests are even harder.This course with Cardwell is harder than the honors section of the course.Its pretty ridiculous!"

"Everything is examples and he goes through them as if it is review. His homework is challenging and his tests definitely aren't easy. He does give a rather large curve at the end of the semester however. I got an A but I worked HARD- the only class that ever made me cry."

"He is very dry. He's as dead as the paper in the book. He stick to examples and and the tests looks completely different than what is in the book."

"This class made me cry too. Definitely possible to succeed if you work your bum off. Not the best instructor alive."

Fuck. Just my freaking luck.

lol @ song playing right now.

Anyway, went to the doctor's today for the second HPV shot. Made sure to ask what it was and proceeded to tell the story about the Red Cross. She gave me a "o_________O" look and said the vaccine doesn't interfere with giving blood and it shouldn't matter what the name of it is, because there's only one.

Well fuck that. >|

Bahaha. Went to the library and got 5 new musical soundtracks. Ripping nao. I'm excited. :3 I got the Evita (movie soundtrack; should watch it some time), Jekyll & Hyde (it's two discs! I love two disc shows! /geek), Godspell, My Fair Lady, and Into the Woods. My Fair Lady I've seen the movie of, and really liked it when I was little. Hope this CD is good. I have no idea whether or not I'll like any of the others, but that's why they're from the library. >3 [Lizzard, if you read this, do you want any of them?]

I've been listening to Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat a lot recently. It's the London cast that Lizzard sent me, and it's really good, but it also makes me sad because the cast in the movie is so much better. ;o; Donny Osmond is on the Canadian recording, but I can't stand the narrator on that one. >< Such is life.

I may have to make another stop at the library before I go back to Richmond, just for more musicals. They're reorganized their CDs so it's much easier to find things now. They had so many show soundtracks! *-* And I'm such a geek but I love it.

Now that I think about it, I'm pretty sure Into the Woods was done as a play when I went to Dramafest. I think it was the one with the crazy inverted set, and that ran over the 40 minutes? I duno.

9 days til I leave. Wow.

Math midterm went fairly well yesterday, I think. Frustrated because one problem was exactly like one that had been on the homework, and for the life of me I couldn't remember how to do it right. It was so simple too. D: And the very last problem was almost exactly like one on the other midterm; I hadn't bothered studying how to do that kind because it involved remembering formulas for area and volume of weird shapes that I never learned in geometry and didn't think I could remember this time. Come to find out it was the same equation that I needed on the last one and hadn't bothered to look up. Pissed about that. ;-; Pretty sure I did better than a 39 this time though. Praying for somewhere in the 80s, but I duno.

Wow, Godspell is pretty good. Better than Jesus Christ Superstar. Ahh, I should find Mom's copy of that and rip it anyway. I like a few of the songs.

On a completely unrelated note, I really hate playing phone tag with people at VCU. I had to talk to five different people to find out how not to get kicked out of my Calc II class without a transcript. Seriously, it was a yes or no question. x_x

There's a fire alarm going off across the street. Reminds me of good ol' Dub G. I seriously hope we don't have any more middle of the night fire drills.

Rrawrgh. I'mma go be productive. kbai.

I have made a zillion lists so far, all on the subject of "what I'm bringing back to/need to pack for school." They all say mostly the same things, but I just keep making new ones instead of revising the old ones. I'm paranoid I'm going to forget something. lesigh. Got some cool things today though: lovely picture frames, a planner with a kitty on it, finally a plain black shirt to wear for PSP things, another shirt (apparently my grandmother doesn't think I own any clothes), kewl colored pens that I've been searching for all summer, christmas lights for my wall(s), and a combo dry erase/cork board with a kitty on it! Yays! No matter how much I buy, I still feel like something's missing. Rargh. Still no sign of my crime scene tape either. ;o;

Stop & Shop needs to hurry up and put Celestial Seasonings tea on sale; their blueberry breeze green tea is yummeh! P=

This just in: I am a spiteful bitch. Because you didn't know that already. Despite finally being able to quit Gaia with no strings attached in two weeks, if all goes well, I'm taking a break from it now. Logically, I should be spending as much time as possible there now in order to speed up the bank closing process, but I find myself unable to care. I realize that life happens, but I've done everything by myself for nearly a month now and I think I can afford to take care of my own business for a while.

I'm melting, I swear. I want to play DDR, but I'm so much more content to sit here and do nothing in the AC. I'm so lazy. u.u That, and I hate when it's so hot and humid that you feel just as gross during and after a shower as you did beforehand. So I'm quite happy to sit here and be gross for the time being, rather than making myself more gross and then getting gross again in the process of removing the initial grossness. Does that make sense anywhere outside of my own mind? Probably not.

My little flash drive is so cute. ^o^ Speaking of cute, I wonder if I can find a Care Bears poster anywhere. Hmm...

Sean just bought an mp3 player online, and I get the feeling Mom's going to kill one or both of us for it. He mentioned wanting one, so I got bored and found some on eBay. He's sure he'll regret it in a week, but wants the thing anyway, even though he says he's spent too much money recently. Okay kid, you make a lot of sense.

I heart my current Facebook picture. It's like, the day after I redyed my hair, so you can see the purple. I likes it. Except Andrew's finger is in it. xD It looks so silly.

PSP events are looking like they're going to turn out pretty well. Personally I think two of the five are rather stupid, but it's not like I got any input from my committee. Whatever. But someone (probably France-Lee, since she brought the subject up) invited like, 20 more people, most/all of whom are alumni! I'm excited, because this means I can FINALLY get contact info for them. Once I have the time to go through and friend everyone.

For now, I'm going to get off my ass and work on math for a little while until the Sox game is over, at which point I get to watch 300 with Sean and teh Mommy on the nice big HD TV. Not better than seeing it in a theater, but definitely sweet. 8D

Oh fucking christ. There were so many potential titles for this entry. XD

Kay. So last night i went out with Ferdy [[livejournal.com profile] silversparkle], her brother, and her dad to the Patriots game, since her dad got clubhouse tickets from someone he works with. i don't care for football, and the only thing i know about it is how to score. [i found out i actually know a little more when i was looking at the scoreboard thing, but it really doesnt matter cuz i still don't care.] We got stuck in traffic on the way down but we had so much fun in the gigantic van thing. Ferdy's dad discovered you're not supposed to bite into everlasting gobstoppers, and especially not 3 at once. So he spit them out the window. And terrorized various other cars. Mwahaha. i won't bore anyone with details cuz to understand you have to spend time with Ferdy's family and their weird sense of humor. XD

We were walking thru the parking lot and all of a sudden we hear "ALLLLLLLLLL ABOARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRD!" and the two of us start jumping up and down for no reason going "OMIGOD IT'S OZZY!" and the guys just started walking faster. [They were playing 'Crazytrain' in the stadium.] The security lady decided my gigantic Kyo bag was "WAY too big. That canNOT come inside." i'm like "Okay, what do you want me to do with it?" And she kinda stared at me. Then she asked another dude and i got to bring it. Whatever. So we took the escalators up, and whatever, and inside was like, gigantic. There were a bunch of bars and food places, and chairs and TVs and shit. [Hell, i'm just going to say 'Dad' not cuz it's easier to type and it's how i address him anyway XD] So Dad and Mike went down to find our seats, and they wound up climbing over everyone cuz we went out the wrong door. Meghan & i stayed inside and wandered. Then Dad & Meghan got booze and me & Mike just stood there like "Okay, you guys suck." [Weird: he's exactly 6 months older than me. (And Crys XD)] Ferdy & i stayed inside and watched the Red Sox game on the TV, then got $8 subs, $4 sodas, and $5 fries. Mmm. They were good though. And the fries were seasoned and we got mao for them. *dies laughing* Kay, so it was Kraft mayo in the squeezy bottle, except it didnt want to come out of the bottle. So we're there haveing major isues with it and this guy's like "Just keep squeezing and shaking it. it will come out... just keep alternating the squeezing and the shaking." We were both laughing at our inability to get it to work, and at the unintentional innuendo, but it's funny cuz when we walked away we were both like "Well that was compeltely wrong." We share a mind, but it's so perverted. XD Spent a good amount of time in the bathroom afterwards hanging out on this bench thing.

The bathroom thing reminded me of my 8th grade teacher. At recess she would only let 2 people go to the bathroom at once and you couldnt bring your food with you. She was like "The bathroom is not a place to hang out. Do you go to people's houses and eat and talk in their bathroom?" Does she not know that in public females go to the bathroom in packs? Yeesh. xD

Moving on... so we went outside about halfway through the 3rd quarter and we were trying to see if we could get on the tv/big screen thing, but we didnt. Aww. And apparently when the Pats score these guys dressed as revolutionary people shoo off guns. Well that scared the crap out of me cuz i didnt expect it, and i got laughed at. Like 10 minutes later Ferdy's like "Ohhhhhh, i get it! They're Patriots!" So she stole my job. [i was dubbed Captain Obvious on the ride down, and she's Major Pain. Haha. Dad's so witty. xD]

She wanted to see Tom Brady, so we're watching the guys on the field looking for #12. We found. #69 instead. -insert immature jokes here.- Turns out his name is Wright. So dad's like "Hey, it's Mr. Right! Haha!" And in unison we're like "Mr. Right is 69!" Christ. And we spotted a giant lava lamp and fucking gigantic gross moths EW.

Ahhh i forget the funny stuff from teh ride home cuz im still super tired. BUt man that day was awesome.

Awesome after 6, anyway. Work sucked yesterday. it was Thursday, which means people get their paychecks. it was the first of the month, which means people get social security checks and whatever, and people are always weird on the first of the month. Fucking Danny worked 10-3, which never happens, and for good reason. All he did was yell at me and blame me ofr anything andf everything that went wrong. Ugh. Then Adrina came in, which made things better. i don't understand why, but every Thursday something goes wrong with the lottery and i can't get it to balance. Renee tried to balance it for me but she accidently cleared the calculator and had to start over. i HATE leaving if there's something wrong cuz i dont' want to get blamed for it. Fucking Phyllis. if she didnt insist on working there there wouldn't be any problems. ARGH. And now i get to go in today and work 3 hours with Danny again. Fucking joy.

Oh yay, i can check the schedule before i leave and we can see when we can go see the Exorcism movie.

My fingers hurt. "Satisfaction" is a pain in the ass to play on the guitar. Every song i lsiten to now i hear the guitar more than anything and i'm always like "Wow that would be fun to learn!" and then i'm like "uhhh... yeahright." The guy said he'd teach me "Broken" but now im afriad. Hooboy.

i'm shutting up now. Gota get ready for work and whatnot. i have tomoro off and Sean will be gone most of the day, so hopefully i can get some schoolwork done. Christ, i can't believe school starts in a week. This is depressing. But thank god this is the last year. it's almost over, yay.

i hate old people. i really do. ><" they should not be allowed to have licenses after they reach a certain age cuz they just can't drive. i went to s&s @ 9 last night to get ice cream. now, the one drviing-related thing i dont suck at is parking. a car in front of me started backing up, and i thought he was going into an empty space, but when he pulled away instead i pulled into it. and there's this old guy, sitting in his car in the dark with no lights on, i dont even think the car was on, and he's sitting there yelling at me and making faces and hand movements like "what the fuck do you think you're doing?" so of course when i try to straighten the car out i get distracted and AUGH. i wanted to hit him out of spite, but there's that little problem of car insurance payments so yeah. >> he glared at me when i gave up and pulled away, so i drove to the other side of the parking lot and spent 5 minutes texting ferdy cuz i swore he was trying to find me. ._. asshat.

i dont want to go to work today. i hope jandelle's not there again. i had a good day yesterday cuz she wasnt there. >>" but i dont care, cuz when i get out of work im going to see the brothers grimm and then we're going to friday's, and i'll be the only underage person there again. YAYZ0RZ!
fleaball: (Default)
But i'm still just as homicidal.

i don't know what the fuck i'm gona do later to make myself happier, or even just apathetic. Usually i watch Gravi, but Ferdy's got disc 1, the one with the Bad Luck concert where Ryuu shows up. Oh well. Maybe A Knight's Tale will help. Heath ledger's hot. i wana go see the Brothers Grimm movie. Ferdy, wana go sometime? Say yes.

i think i said this a few days ago, but i really do NOT want to go to school this year. i mean, i've never liked going back after the summer, ecxept for the fact that i neever see freinds til then. [yes my spelling is starting to suck but you'll just have to deal with that, won't you?] this year i'm just dreading it. As far as i know the only person i care about in my english, psych, and v/v classes is katie. i hate literally half my french class pbut hey, there's 6 of us >>], anatomy is going to suck, and im afraid of the idiot ill get stuck with in law. oh christ do i really have to go? and of course theres gona be more pressure from people for me to be #1 and piss off ariana, but i dont give a shit. if i finsih at 3 this year im going to be pissed though. just on principle.

im sick of college shit already. the visits, the emails, the snail mailings... i requested applications from harvard and VCU yesterday, and i got one from unh at the open house. chrsit, on the off chance i get into harvard my mother is going to open the phone book and call fucking everyone in it. that;s what she did when i got into all my high schools and got the scholarships. fucking christ this is going to suck. i dont give a damn, i just want to go to college. i just want to lounge around all day and go to classes in my pjs and sweatpants and crappy tshirts and not have to worry about my mother running my life or about fucking competition with certain bitches at school that everyone wants me to be in but i dont care for. and i hate to say it but i dont want to deal with kari-ann. i just dont. p3ffy and i have been kinda kind-heartedly making fun of her and how she's so anal about what she looks like and what WE look like, and i dont want to go back to that. we have december and 4th quarter out of uniform, plus tag days. i'm not dressing preppy so kari-ann can feel less self conscious. and i dont want to listen to her making fun of anime or saying im weird because of what i like or any of that, or "Gee, how did we get to be friends again?" which is her way of saying "you're a fucking weirdo and you're attracting unwanted attention to me." and omg if she does as little homework adnd studying this year as she did last year i swear to god ill kill her.

french is going to suck. im a level ahead of everyone and therefore ill be resented if i know any word they dont or i fi do this or that or whatever... and of course i talk to french people in french on gaia, so i'll know a lil more outside of what i've learned and theyll be all like "ooh uyou're showing of now huh" and i really dont want to deal with that either.

i dont give a shit that im smarter than everyone in almost everything and it's never stopped me before from doing what's expected of me, or better, but fucking christ it gets annoying when people are like "omg youre so smart you have no right to bitch about getting a 'bad grade' because thats not really bad" well thats great for you but i have my own standards and just because i dont SUCK like you do, i DO get bad grades and you have no right to assume that i dont stress out just as much as you do. so fuck off. my life is not perfect just because my gpa is 4.3+ if anything it's worse because so many people are like "omg you're so smart we've got so great expectations for you" and i dont giv ea shit. i know what i want to do with my life and it doesnt involve whatever the fuck you want me to do

speaking of which, my uncle has been telling me for years that i should be an accountant and study the stock market and shit because i can make so much money. this is the same uncle who bitches at my mom for letting us read harry potterr and watch anime cuz they're satanic of some shit like that. and he's been saying that extremem makeover show is doing a teen edition and he wants to nominate me for it. he told mom he's joking, but i would kill him. aside from the fact that it's fucking offensive as hell, i would just kill him for it. he called yesterday so see how mom's doing and she mentioned something about how she's told me repeatedly i'm not spending summers here during college if i come back with piercings and colored hair and he told her to tell me that people in the real world dont look kindly on people with colored hair and shit. ASK ME IF I GIVE A FUCK. CUZ I DONT.

i hate everyone right now. i hate stop n shop ans everyone there, i hate school, i fucking hate life. i really do. im so pissed off at everything and everyone. but at the same time i really dont give a shit baout anything. can you really be apathetic and utterly pissed off at the same time? now would be the time to go write like, angsty fanfiction or to play angry angtsy pseudo rock shit on my guitar or soemthing, except i cant play anything and i havent written any good fics in a year. someone kill me. just kill me now, please. i really dont want to have to deal wth any of this fucking shit anymore. im sick of living here and of all the stupid drama that life brings and whatever. i weish i could just jump forward 10 years or something. ill be living on my own probably working toward a fucking phd since that's what you need to be accepted as an expert of whatever, and ill probly be living in some mini apartment alone and miserable but at least id be alone. alone and with no one to answer to and no one to give a shit about.

now i want a boy/girlfriend whom i could guilt into feeling bad since i feel shitty, and then make them buy me stuff. like coffee. i need a coffee right now but mom has the car and im not walking across the street in the dark brecause im just too fucking lazy.

im sure someone's going to stumnble on thisand be offended but i coulndt care less right now. i really couldnt.
fleaball: (Default)
Like hell. Being aggressive will make it easier for me to fucking kill you.

[This entire post is me bitching about work, so no one needs to feel obligated to read and/or comment on it.]

i dont think i've ever seriously thought about quitting stop & shop before now, but quitting would only mean fucking Jandelle wins and i get no more money.

So anyway, my allergies have developed into a cold or something, i think, which makes life suck in general. i've been miserable since monday and of course i had to go into work today, which sucked more. The firsts customer i got wanted to return something form the Quincy store but she didnt have a receipt. Okay. Well it's not in our computer so i can't take it back. But she insists that all Stop & Shops sell the same thing because it's the same company so there's no way it can't be in the computer. Whatever. So she pulls a piece of paper out of her purse and writes my name down. "Well, Caitlin, i'm just going to call your coporate office and tell them you're not cooperating with me, and they'll send me a $25 gift card for my trouble." Fuck you. And she wanted to pay for her other groceries at the desk, including a banana which i couldn't scale. Andrea got the price for me, but i heard "45 cents" instead of "25 cents." Then i get bitched at cuz it's wrong and therefore she should ger her 25 cent banana free [which, by the way, is not our policy]. And threatened again because "You're being very rude to me and that's not good customer service." So apparantly she went to Donna and Regina and bitched to them, and Regina was like "Fine. Would you like me to refund your quarter?" and she did and the bitch wrote Regina's name down and said she was calling corporate again. But she stormed off and left her receipt, so Regina looked up her card number and got her name and i don't know what she did after that. But both she and Donna were like "That lady was a bitch! What did she say to you?" And i couldn't tell if they were mad at me for something or just like "wtf."

And then Mr. Linder kinda yelled at me because he's a fucking idiot. Last week i went in to see if i could give someone money to buy me cigarettes for my mom, and he's too stupid to figure that part out so all week he's been making a big deal out of how it was so illegal and it shouldn't be done and i should'nt've asked him about it "but it's okay cuz i knew they were for you mom anyway." Well what the fuck is the problem?! Let it die before someone overhears you and we all get screwed, mmkay?

Then the day just sucked in general, since it's Thursday and everyone wants to cash their checks. Then i had to call Mr. Linder since some lady wanted to return like, $30 worth of stuff but didn't have a receipt with her for any of it. And some of it had Star Market price tags on it. Didn't all Stars change to Shaws a few years ago? So calls back and says "Okay from now on call Jandelle if you need something" and he's very nice about it. i hang up from him and she's on the other line: "Caitlin? This is Jandelle. Don't you call Mr. Linder if you need customer assisstance help. you call ME. i do all that so don't call Mr. Linder again." Well that's great. in the time it took for you to stand there and bitch you could've come over and seen what i needed. idiot.

Then the day continues to suck. i went on my break an hour late because it took her that long to come down and give Adrina money for her drawer. [i couldn't go and leave Adrina with nothing.] Then she royally fucked up the lottery.

Eric asked me to hang out on the floor to help while he got some breaks done, but i had to go count the lottery. That was 5:20. The lottery was still closed because i left and something was really fucking wrong with it. i kept getting 2 different figures so it was fucked up. it was over either $600 or $1k. i called her over to look at it and it turns out she doesnt know HOW to balance the lottery. Well that's not going to help me much now, is it? So THEN she goes "well you know what, i'm just gona leave this for Danny to double check." Well that would be a good idea if he came in before FOUR PM TOMORROW.

i don't want to sound racist, but she's really your stereotypical black woman. She's got the attitude and everything. [Like the chicks on Jerry Springer who snap their fingers and go "Donchoo talk smack about me, biyatch. You don't kno~owwww me!"] While she was talking her time coming to the desk some lady pushed her way through to the front of the line and started bitching about how she spent $50 at EZ and didnt get her gas coupon cuz the machine was jammed. i told her that if it doesnt print there's nothing we can do but she wanted her coupon. She didnt want to buy gas then so i couldnt call the gas station, and when i gave her one that was on the desk, she didnt want it because it expired Monday and "what if i don't get gas by Monday?" Well i'm sure you've let coupons expire before, it won't kill you. So i'm telling her there's nothing i can do and Jandelle pushes her way through and goes "No no, i'll handle this. Come with me ma'am. " and makes herself look like the good guy and does something i'm sure she wasn't supposed to just to shut the lady up. Then she comes in and stands at my register until i turn and actually acknowledge her presence and she says to me in THE most condescending way "Well... Caitlin... what you were telling her was right, but when you get agressive that's not going to help anything. Next time you just need to be less aggressive and hear them out..." And i'm like WHAT THE FUCK.

Eric tried to count my drawer since Phylis was going on it, but he couldn't figure out how and he was finally like "Y'know what, FUCK IT." i was like "Okay, but if something comes out wrong, call me so i can kill myself before i have to come in tomorrow." i was leaning more toward killing myself so i wouldn't have to deal with it anymore, but i think he heard it as i wanted to kill myself so i wouldnt get in trouble or something cuz he's like "You'd kill yourself over Stop & Shop? No, i'd bring you back to life and then kill you again fro being stupid enough to do that!" which is cute. But oh CHRIST i dont think i can deal with that for 2 more days...

Of course i came home 25 minutes late cuz i didnt want to just leave while there were so many issues with money on MY drawer and such, and i came home homicidal, so Mom was like "Oh why are you late? What's wrong?" and i made the mistake of bitching to her and she told me i should tell Regina or Mr. Linder that either Jandelle has to go or i won't work the desk anymore.

Uh... right.

The woman has no idea how to work anything back there, she's never in the front where she should be, she doesn't know how to work the front end either... what the fuck?! We've been fine without a CSM for the 2 years i've been there, and im sure for longer than that. Why the hell are they cutting hours store wide and then bringing in people we don't need? What kind of sense does that make?! She really needs to change her attitude and learn exactly what it is she's supposed to be doing though. How the fuck can she tell us what to do when she doesn't know how we're supposed to do it in the first place? i'm not fucking new, i know what's supposed to be done. it's just that the lottery NEVER fucking balances for me and people think that because i'm a kid they know more than me so they can argue til they get their way because managers give in to everyone just to please them. What the fucking hell.

There's no way i'm gona be able to work on any kind of homework later. Maybe i'll watch Generator Gawl, or a DVD with real people in it. >>; i need to go to Suncoast and get manga, and hopefully the other 3 GG DVDs. And fuck, i want the Gravi OVA.
