What's Going On...

Good morning, Friday! How beautiful you are.

I always wake up at 6:30 on Fridays when I would normally be getting up, but then I check the time, blissfully roll over and fall back asleep. I love having a day to sleep in. However, those are the days I need to get completely motivated to do homework - especially since I have a busy weekend coming up and will probably start working a little more next week. (I worked just about eight hours this week, and actually found the 3-4 hour shift during dinnertime is just the right amount. Once it gets people and you have a steady stream of people in the restaurant, the time just flies by.)

I have nine music theory assignments to preferably get done today. I wrote out my to-do list and interspersed the assignments amongst everything else I need to do. I think that is the best way to get the most done, as opposed to sitting down for a chunk of time and saying, "ok, I'm going to do all of these right now." (Insert: I can't wait to be done with that class. Four weeks left!!)

I'm going to two plays this weekend. The homeschool play, La Redemption, I'm going to tomorrow and I'm going to take Brittany after a looooong-overdue Twisted Bliss date. Then on Sunday, my mom is taking me to the BPCT play, The Nifty Fifties. I'm also looking forward to that one. I really enjoy going to plays, almost as much as being in them.

I think I'm a creature of habit. That must be why it's so hard for me to stop having coffee :(

The Best Kind of Different

Normally, I would never be sitting at my kitchen table at 12:51 PM on a Wednesday afternoon, blogging and munching on tuna salad. Today is not normal :) I only had one class this morning and a piano lesson, so I came home right after. It was a sunny drive. Sunny with good music. Now I have about three hours to do as much homework as I can, and then I am leaving for my second day of work. I'm actually pretty excited. Last night was fun (albeit, slightly stressful) but I'm excited to get even faster and better at what I have learned.

This is a short post, but I don't have a lot of time. I'm leaving in about three hours. So, have a wonderful, sunny day, and come eat dinner at Sizzler! :)

April 10, 2011


I have a new job. I will henceforth be working at Sizzler Restaurant, (I believe) as a salad bar attendant! (P.S. the "I believe" was for the salad bar attendant part. Not the Sizzler part.) I officially "start" on Tuesday, but I had orientation today. Basically it consisted of reading the employee handbook which told me not to make racist remarks and to call 911 if there is a fire. There was some other stuff in there, but it was all similar to that. I also got to sign my name quite a few times, promising to be a good person, not to steal food or company time, and that I can legally work in the United States.

I also found out that the dress code is pretty strict, so after orientation was over, I went out to the car and called my mom to see if she wanted to help me go shopping. We ended up meeting at the mall and I purchased some Dansko's (honestly, I do not think they are that cute... I don't see what all the hype is for except that they are SUPER comfy) and a stiff, annoyingly scratchy white button-down blouse. It wasn't quite the right size but it was seriously all we could find. Then I went to Claire's and bought a few pairs of pretty stud earrings (as far as I can tell, I'm not allowed to wear dangly earrings at all): I bought a pair of really pretty pearl studs, sparkly diamond-ish studs, and some teeny little flowers. The pearls are my favorite, though. I have been wanting some like that for a while. I also got a couple hair flowers just for fun.

My mom took me to Twisted Bliss after that. Twisted Bliss is easily within walking distance of Sizzler. This is not a good thing, people. :P Anywhom, I had delicious yogurt -- and way more than I intended, because the handle to one got stuck!! (I'm serious, by the way. This is not an excuse for how much yogurt I ate.)

And now I am at home, cranking out music theory and math homework like a crazy woman. I don't even know why I'm blogging right now -- I just felt it was fair that you know what I'm up to. (Although, if you follow me on twitter, *cough cough* you would already know a lot of this stuff.) 

P.S. I have to learn to tie a tie. I honestly never expected to know how to do that in my lifetime. (*cough* another something you would know if you followed me on twitter)

Anywhom, a job will really tie me down... but I am looking forward to having a regular paycheck, plus maybe a little spending money. Although I spend my money anyway. You can possibly expect a new post on Tuesday or Wednesday night, all about my new experiences :)
