    • Free Beer Night

      12 years ago


      of course i took part in Free Beer Night...duh!

      so there was this movie called Secret. not entirely sure what it's about. kirk seems to think it's one of those scientology videos attempting to attract more victims. the movie description was pretty ambiguous, even by my standards.

      there is a porn section in this movie place. i myself do not find any gratification from porn. i don't see how other people do. it's strange to watch people go ga-ga over something that really isn't all that interesting or mind developing for that matter. maybe that's what wrong with the world today. *shrug* i just don't get it.

      i scored three cups of beer. typically they only give 2. but when shift changes coems about, it's time to get another! *evil grin*

      This Week's Beer :
      Live Oak Pilsner

      This Week's Rentals :
      When the Levees Broke
      Jackie Brown
      Taxi Driver

    • Today Is Going To Be A Long Day

      12 years ago


      So, today is Tuesday. That means 3 things.

      Supervisor Training
      I get to take part of a training for my new Supervisor position. It's something all Supervisors have to go through. But all the information I have been given thus far has been very helpful and I'm so glad it has been given to me. 2 - 4 pm

      Tier 2 Training
      So after I get to listen to someone teach, it's my turn to be the teacher. I will be teaching a class of Tier 2 Agents. Tier 2 assists the Tier 1 agents and the occasional customer if Tier 1 is having difficulty. 4 - 7 PM

      This would be my favorite day of the week. After work, three of us go to I Love Video. I Love Video is a videostore that has Free Beer Night every Tuesday night. The owner gets a keg and anyone over 21 can have two cups of free beer. This beer is not typically what I would drink, because I aquired my beer taste by drinking Budweiser. The beer they pick is usually something I've never had before. The past few weeks it's been Live Oak Pale Ale and I have figured out that I actually like it. So we have to return the movies we rented last week.

      Wowie! another long period of time away from RvB... i'm a terrible person...
      and now for the updates

      I finally got that promotion. I'm a Supervisor now. But not without irritations. I don't have a computer at my new desk yet. It was supposed to be there like two days ago. I put in a Helpdesk ticket to get that taken care of but people are so busy, we'll just have to see how long it takes. So for now, I'm at this other new desk I moved to because they kicked us out of our other area. Meh. Will it ever end? I doubt it.

      Still in Austin. Still alive. Can't really complain about too much. I am getting a little stir crazy. A little bored with the way things are. *shrug* ah well. Not much I can really do about it. So I guess I'll just wait.

      I haven't had internet access for a while. Apparently for more than 6 months. But rest assured, I'm still here.

    • Geez Louise!

      12 years ago


      it has been a while since i updated this thing, so i decided to write a quick line or two.

      i've been working. a lot. it's like when i get to work the world falls apart and i get it put back together just in time before i go home at the end of the day. this whole week i have been in training. i am in charge of training 20 new people to be prepared to hit the floor in a week. well, apparently the boss decided to change facilitators in the middle of this two week training ordeal. this is to "acclimate all the other trainers into a training environment". i call bullshit. the only thing it's going to do is fuck with the heads of the agents who are in the training class. *sigh* alas, there is nothing i can do. the only thing i can do is show up 2 hours before my shift to more or less help the transition for the new trainer and my class. i hope it works out. *Shrug* we shall see.

      i'm hoping for a promotion soon. i've been there for over a year and have made some serious progress. i think it's about time for another bump up the ladder.

      i do not want to tell you my opinion about any of this. i would like for you to come to your own. i just wanted to show you these links so in the event you do decide to get into a discussion about this, you will know this "other" information is floating around out there too.

    • Holy Crapola!

      13 years ago


      sorry to keep you so long without an update.


      go to this website. watch the video. it's an hour and a half long. make sure you have time to watch it. then come back here and tell me what you think.

    • where you been so long?

      13 years ago


      yeah, sorry about the long absence...i know how you guys get being all monkeyless for too long...

      things have been rough lately...that and my boyfriend decided to completely remove the os from the computer and restart it and do some other random shit to it...all while under the influence...so...yeah, it's been a while...

      he and i went through a bit of a rough patch there...but we're doin better...he sent me a myspace message with "IOVEYOU!" a gazillion times....so i guess we're okay.. :o) he's so funny...

      at work they're about to change my schedule...and move my team to another location...that means farther to drive to get to work...it sucks...and as soon as i physically see my social security card, i am totally looking for another job...*sigh* maybe it's just the lack of sleep for the past few days...who knows...*shrug*

      i play around on myspace alot, so add me as a friend...


    • I Miss Her Too Much

      13 years ago


      so at the funeral it finally dawned on me that she's gone forever. call it a delayed reaction. i felt way too many emotions this weekend. a system overload if you will. i did get a hold of a picture of her. from a time before she got sick. and how i prefer to remember her.

      when i was younger i remember her trying to potty train my sisters and i. she would wake us up in the middle of the night and take us to the bathroom one at a time. she'd put us up there and leave us there for about 5 minutes, then take us back to bed. i remember she would always bring food over every time she came to visit. and she kept every little thing we did.

      i played for her about two weeks before she died. i don't know if she even knew i was there, but i hope she did. because i love her so much and i miss her.

      okay, this is too hard. i gotta go.

    • Home Again Home Again Jiggidy Jig

      13 years ago


      so i'm home at my parent's...the drive was terrible...way too long...so i was so incredibly annoyed and frustrated...i snapped at my mom and sister because i was on the phone trying to talk to someone, but they kept getting louder and louder...i don't think they understand how tired i was from the long drive...the last thing i want are people yelling over each other to be heard...i fell asleep on the couch by accident...you'd think that someone would at least give me a blanket or a pillow...you know as a courtesy because i am tired...no, i woke up in the middle of the night freezing my ass off...

      tonight i'm sleeping in the bed...with a pillow and a blanket...i'm pretty sure when my mom gets home she and the kids are going to be incredibly loud...yeah...not looking forward to that...

      ever since i got here it's like everytime someone asks me what i've been up to, they get this "i don't really care but i'm being polite by asking" look on their face when i try to answer them...some of them get up while i'm in the middle of the sentence and walk off and do something else...i understand that they may have something else on their mind, but why ask me a question if you don't care about the answer?

      oh well...i'm tired...cousin's are supposed to be here by now...i might post more tomorrow...who knows...but i definitely will when i get back to austin...

      thank you all for the supportive comments....i need them with your prayers...

      i love you too...
