More Updates to my life

I  still love the new job.

Me and the babysitter have been going to the lake a lot since its summer. We have also been just going out a lot like to a bar or a club.

The house is pretty much clean all the time.

I still can’t cook and I’m still a lazy bum. I’ve been gaining weight… I have flipping Celsius now! How the heck did that happen when I’m only like 115 lbs?

I have no money now because the new job doesn’t pay well… its been really hard because I’m somewhat of a shopaholic

As far as frizzy lizzy goes I do shave my legs but lately I haven’t been feeling girly. I need to start doing my hair or something.

School starts again in about a month. I’m nervous because I’ve been out for a while. but I’m only taking two classes. Managerial Accounting and Calculus

I’m going to a community college for business then I’m going to transfer to a university.

Still have no friends really just my family and my boyfriends friends. (sometimes I still say babysitter but I think we are close enough for me to call him my boyfriend. Its been three years already!)

——————————————————-

Ok so there are the updates. Looks like I still need to start cooking and working out and make sure I do good in school. Maybe make a friend from class and doing girly things or something

 

Oh and budget! I need to start budgeting like crazy because I got a huge pay cut but I still want to do everything I do! I’ve heard mint.com is a good place but I’m also a little scarred of putting my bank account into that site. I used to go to this blog calls wisebread and get some ideas from there. Look like I got to start that again.

Updates to my life :)

I’ve been really enjoying the new job. Extremely low stress 🙂 and easy. I don’t think its sketchy anymore just… into business only and making money.. But anyway  I don’t understand why the girl before me made it sound like it’s such a hard job. She is still so bitter towards the company. She filed for unemployment and figures the administrative assistant handles unemployment paper work. Then Today she called me and left a voicemail and said she is suing the company and lawyers think its best if we didn’t talk at all. I’m thinking thank God! All she ever did was say negative things to me and that I should quit as soon as I can. But NO WAY!!! Like I said before I want to stick it out and get all the experience I can from this. They are paying me pennies but Admins can be paid as much as $16 an hour and even more if you’re an executive assistant.

 

The new job has had me shaving my legs a lot. I have to dress professionally at all times so I’ve had to do some shopping.  I got some nice blazers and business dresses and skirts. I just need shoes but that will have to wait until pay-day. But anyway this summer fizzy Lizzy isn’t going to be a problem.

 

I won a contest! Can you believe that! What are the odds?! I got a kindle fire HD. I used to think I would never get a kindle and I was so against any kind of eReader because books are the way to go and if we don’t keep books everyone will be dumb and never read ever. But I love this thing! It does have a ton of books for free they have a ton of TV series.  Ok maybe I don’t use it as a eReader as much as I should be. But anyway I love this I can download episodes so it saves and then you can watch it even if you’re not online. I started watching The Sopranos. I’m on season 3 and I think I might have to stop because I’ve started saying the “F” word! I never cuss!!! But the series is soooo good!

 

Another thing I want to mention I downloaded an app called “the Fabulous” and I think it’s really helping. It just gives you little reminders to do good things like eat breakfast and drink water.

Sketchy Job….

With the new job I have been going to bed at like 10  PM! That super early for me and for my boyfriend who works a grave yard shift.

 

I just typed boyfriend instead of babysitter… I guess we are at that stage now..

 

Anyway, other than my sleeping patterns there are some things about the job I’m a little unsure about.  Monday will be the start of my 3rd week so no longer in training and I’ll be all by myself. Within the two weeks I’ve been there three people have quit! One is including the girl who is training me and she says they do have a high turn around rate. Not so happy about that… I’m wondering if the company is so bad that people just leave or if the boss is so bad or… who knows!? All the positions except mine are paid off of commission so I’m thinking it has something to do with that.

 

I did get yelled at by one of them. And it wasn’t even my fault. The admin position that I got requires that I do payroll and that got messed up and I got yelled at for it. The girl who is training me is sooooooo…. umm… dumb isn’t the right word but she is something like that. Anyway she is the one who talked to our payroll person not me so really I didn’t make any mistake but still got yelled at. Whatever I don’t really care because it’s not a mistake that I made.

 

Come Monday I really have to see if I can do this job because no one will be there to help me anymore. The other people who work there don’t really know the admin position so I’m alone on this.

 

I’ve been watching so many YouTube videos just on being a good admin because I really really really want to do good in this position. If anything just to get a better admin position but really just to prove to myself I can do it. I’ve always wanted an office job! When I was little I remember writing out forms on paper and handing them out just because I saw business women doing it. My favorite character on The Rugrats was Angelica’s Mom. She was the only parent that seemed to have an actual job (well I think Susie’s mom was a Doctor but what the heck did everyone else do?).

Anyway I’ll hope Monday I remember everything they tried to train me on!

finally a job!

Yay I finally got a job!

 

Funny thing is I now work for a staffing agency. They were trying to find a job for me but ended up hiring me on with them! But im happy I found one and its for an administrative assistant which is what I wanted to do! I’ve only worked one week tomorrow starts my second week. I’m technically still in training but the job send pretty easy.

I have to get used to waking up early and not sleeping at 3am. And I had to buy some good work clothes. Never realized they were so expensive! But its a good investment because I’ll use them at different jobs in the future.

I want to be positive but I do have some things to say about this new job. It seems the company has a high turn around rate. Someone just quit on Friday and the girl who is training me is leaving and seems a little bitter towards the company! Most of the people there have only been there a few months.

With the position I would have to do payroll and in a staffing agency everyone (except my position of course) works on commission. So something about the previous admin making a mistake on the payroll. Of course it made everyone mad. The previous admin insists that she is not leaving on bad terms but all last week all I heard was bad talk about the company.

But like I said I want to be positive about all this and I want to stick it out. This is the job I wanted and have been looking for so I should shut up!

Wtf interview

I was very excited about an interview I had today. The company actually contacted me so that means I didn’t even apply to them. I had applied with them in December and they saved my info. And its only a 4 minute drive from my house! It was scheduled for later this afternoon.

This morning I woke up because I got a call. I ignored it at first and tried to fall asleep again but I couldn’t. So I looked at my phone and saw that there was a voicemail. After checking Facebook, reading a few things on google newsstand and playing sudoku I decided to get up and listen to the voicemail. It was the company I was interviewing with. The position was filled and they were letting me know I didn’t have to go in.

I don’t cuss but wtf!!!! Why would they do that to me?!?!?! And why would they even hire someone knowing there are pending interviews? They don’t even want to give me a chance?

Not so Exciting Interview

I got an interview on Monday! Well… It’s with a temp agency so not really real employment , but hey anything to get away from the customer abuse! I should be happy I even got considered.

I had to take an excel test and I only got one answer wrong so that’s good! When I go in on Monday I also have to take a personality test. I hate those. Of course I answer honestly so if they don’t pick me it’s like… ugh sorry for being myself?

 

Side note, my sister S got me to start watching Gossip Girl and its ridiculous! If my future kids are anything like that I’ll probably be in jail for beating my kids. How can kids be so ungrateful? But then again here I am complaining about an interview with a temp agency and at the same time crying about the job I have… hmmmm

 

Lesson to Learn : Gratefulness

Short term fix of pansy’s and blogging

I went to my…. Crazy doctor yesterday. I told her how I cry out work and she said I should get short-term disability. I’m hesitant to do it. I feel like I would be taking advantage of the system. But at the same time I’ve been getting in trouble for unplugging from my work phone because I’ve been crying so much.

My babysitter is so annoyed with me. I know why he feels that way. He thinks I’m just a lazy cry baby. And to be honest that is what I am but I can’t stop my crying! But I want to take the time. When I told my crazy doctor she said the only bad thing about short-term disability is that you have to go back. So that sucks. I just want to have a job where I’m happy!

I’ve been trying to put out more resumes. I’ve been keeping track. Since Wednesday I’ve put out 23 applications. I got a no from one of them just two days after. How can they decide so quickly? But then again I wish they all got back to me that quickly so then I don’t have to be wondering all this time. I know I’ve sent out dozens and dozens of applications and I’m sure some are still floating around and I’m here waiting for any sign that any one of those companies have the slightest interest in me. Its… pathetic…

One thing that does help is gardening. Thank God winter is almost over. Its been sunny where I live so I brought some pansy’s. They are my favorite flower. When I saw the Disney movie Alice in Wonderland the scene where she talks with the flowers stuck with me. The pansy’s look like little kids and I still see those faces when I see the flower. I even sing the song golden afternoon song :). Next I’m going to buy some daffodils.

Another thing that helps is this. Writing. Have you noticed I’ve been posting more? I like to write poetry and short stories. I haven’t done it in a long time but lately I’ve been getting ideas for stories or the perfect image. I was advised not to post any of that on the blog though. But doing it helps. A lot.

Homework and résumés

A little more than a week into this goal thing. Its OK. Some days i still stay in bed all day but, on the days i don’t, I feel a lot more productive and end up having free time. I still had to do all my homework last minute so this week I definitely need to do more homework during the week instead of my days off.

I had my interview on Tuesday then I got a computer generated email on Friday saying that I didn’t get it.

Today I cried again at work. I credited an account $88.50 and the customer still wanted more and proceeded to yell at me. I’ve learned that people are really spoiled and that I need to put a lot more résumés out then I am now because I still don’t have another job.

More crying

I should rename my blog, “cry baby blog” or “complaints on life” or “see me cry about something new everyday!”

Still job hunting and still hate my job.People yell at me all day over stupid things and even if they aren’t I’m just so fed up working at my job. Its call after call after call. As soon as I’m done with a call I get a little sigh of relief but another one comes right after and takes my relief away. I get no break from the stress. Well yes I get a break. Two 15 minute breaks and a 30 minute lunch. But still I hate it soooo bad that I want to get up and leave. Which I have done twice. I seriously don’t understand how people can be in this job for so long. When they hire you they tell you that you can move up right away to a different position but thats not true. You have to take at least 6 months of escalated calls to be considered for any position. And those positions off the phones are never available anyway.

I was going to ask them if I can go part time. I told my babysitter about it and he got so mad. Everything he says makes sense but I don’t think he really understands how hard this job is on me. He says I would just be losing money if I went part time. I do have 3 months salary saved up plus 4 months of car payments and I know how to go without luxuries. I think what he is more sacred of is me at home doing nothing.

I wish I could have seen the future. I applied for the job I have now 4 times before they actually hired me. I was so determined to get this job. I wish I would have done more research on how call centers are. FYI guys don’t be mean to the people you talk to when you have to call into customer service.

Well I do have an interview on Tuesday with the university here for an admin job. How do I say in the interview, “please please please give me a job so that I can be free from this Hell!!!!” without sounding like a brat girl who will never be satisfied with anything in life?

cry baby

The other day I left work early. I just walked right out and told my boss I couldn’t finish the day. I had a rude customer and I started crying.  I cry at least once a week at work. Even if they aren’t rude just sitting there at my desk knowing another call is going to come in makes me want to cry.

I’m not over exaggerating guys, I’m a huge cry baby!!!! I hide it really well at work because I don’t want anyone to see me. But then I’ve been getting in trouble for taking longer or extra breaks. But when I do take extra or longer breaks I’m hiding somewhere wiping my pathetic tears away.

Yes, I apply for new jobs every week and still nothing. I made an appointment with my crazy doctor but she didn’t have any appointments till March. So I got to keep going to work until I die. Great.

I’m just procrastinating doing my homework right now. Oddly enough I have to do a writing assignment but this  doesn’t count.

Gosh the more I write the more I hate myself 😦
