[Error: unknown template qotd]I worked at Target for all of two days. Three, if you count the paid training. They never gave me a cashier number, meaning I worked on someone else's while they trained me on a register- and then they left me alone so that when the register locked up I couldn't unlock it. The next day they yelled at me for not having a number and stuck me in some random department for five hours. Peace out, I'm done.

Probably wouldn't have sucked so much if I hadn't spent 2.5 years of my life as a cashier and known that they clearly didn't have their shit together. And if I didn't have another job at the time. Ah, well.

Life mocks me.

All day it looked like it was going to storm. ALL DAY. And it didn't. So when we left for the Commons and it wasn't raining I was like "ooh yay." We get down to the lobby and it was POURING. What the hell, Richmond? What the hell? So we got to the Commons DRENCHED. Because umbrellas are pretty much useless here. Anyway, I was lucky that I'd brought my sweatshirt in case the Commons got cold; I'd stuffed it in my bag so it was mostly dry, so I had to tear off my shirt and put that on instead. Awkward? xP My shirt did that thing again where the top half of it got wet and the below-boob-level part was mostly dry. Amusing.

So, I am going to force myself to go to bed at midnight. Tonight and hopefully in the future. That means by the time I post this I'll have an hour and a half, approximately, to get stuff done. And boy, do I need to get stuff done. My to-do list for tonight/tomorrow is packed with small things, and to add to that? I need to figure out how to write up a resume. Becauses the place Krissy works at is hiring, and she's the one in charge of the hiring. And this job? Is make your own hours. Which is amazing. I need to do this wright. And it's only like, seven blocks from WG. Ish. Meaning less than a ten minute walk. So when it gets dark early? I can run home freaking fast.

And now I'm getting excited, like I always do when faced with a job opportunity. But omg this would so be amazing. She mentioned that it was like, cutting things and laminating and whatnot, so maybe working at AC Moore will be a plus, despite the fact that I never did any of that? >>

So I'm pretty sure the chances of my working this summer are shot to hell. None of the places I applied want summer help, and with 6 weeks left I really don't have a chance anywhere else. D: So this sucks. Next year I'm fucking filling out online applications during finals week.

I'm finally getting around to cleaning out my music folder. But it's amazing how the same songs keep playing despite 1230+ being on shuffle. Cirque du Soleil is amazing. *-* And I'm insanely jealous, because my parents are going to see them/it/whatever. My mom won a trip to Vegas, so she and my father are going the 14th-17th. I hope she comes back with a check for lots of money. :? She's got to hit it big one of these days. She won that entertainment system in December, won a raffle thing of some kind for a chance to buy Red Sox tickets, and now has won this trip. I'm a little bit worried because she fully intends on gambling and I don't know how far she'll go, but there's nothing I can do about it. My grandmother's freaking out because they're leaving Sean & me at home alone. It's going to be an interesting four days. ><

Since I started writing this, I went out to Staples with Mom, and the store in Somerville says they're looking for temporary help for the back-to-school season. According to their website, if you apply online to one store, all the store in a 50-mile radius can see it. Guess I'll call tomorrow and talk to someone. I should stop getting my hopes up. >>

So I mysteriously developed lactose intolerance two years ago, and it mysteriously disappeared last year, and now I think it's back. I think maybe it's because I've been drinking a lot more milk and eating a lot more dairy foods since I've come back from school? I duno. But that seems to be the only explanation for my feeling gross after I eat ice cream or something, but not feeling gross if I've taken one of those stupid Lactaid pills beforehand. Argh.

My room is going to look cool this year. Went to Bed Bath & Beyond with Mom and Nanny last week, and I was lurking in the clearance section when I found beaded curtains for $5. Later Mom had the idea of getting one of those shower curtain tension rods to put inside the doorway/hallthing in the room, and put the curtain on that. Then I also decided that I need to go back and get a few more to put on the wall on the side of the room, and I can put pictures/posters/whatever behind them, and it will be cool. So I need to do that. And I'm excited about it. I've not really started thinking about back to school crap yet, since I had so much leftover from last year. Just need to take some kind of inventory and stock up on pens and crap again, which won't be too hard. :3 I'm rambling again, joy. Either way, my room should look better this year. I also want to print zillions of pictures and put frames up everywhere.

And now I'm pissed off. I was just on the Red Cross website looking at the eligibility requirements because I didn't want to get turned away again (going on Friday). Under the section on Vaccinations it says: "Acceptable if you received an HPV Vaccine (example, Gardasil)." HELLO, WHAT WAS THE FUCKING PROBLEM? I know there's no sense in beating a dead horse, but I don't appreciate the fact that the nurse made it seem like it was my fault that I didn't know the freaking commercial name of a vaccine, when it apparently doesn't even fucking matter.

Eww, and now it's dinner time. And I have to do calc after. Ew ew ew.

Went in to Bed, Bath & Beyond today for my interview with the store manager. Lasted all of 5 minutes, if that. Obviously hadn't looked at my application at all... "Did you like it at A.C. Moore?" Yes. "Well why did you leave?" ...I go to school in Virginia? "Oh. Well, then your availability would obviously change?" ...Yeah. I'm not commuting, kthx. "Well... we're not really looking for temporary help at the moment." And blah blah, I should have an answer by the end of the week, one way or another.


Freaking summer's half over already and I have yet to get a job. My chances of getting one are still pretty much sucking and even getting worse, because hi, who the hell will want to hire someone for like three weeks? D:

Also went to Stop & Shop today, talked to the hiring manager. Who totally blew me off (which I was half expecting because Ferdy warned me about it). I swear he didn't even look at me when I was explaining that I used to work there and just filed an application. Oh yeah, customer service ftw. *eye roll* He told me to call him next week to see if anything changes. WTF.
