The future...but first the past.

I had multiple reasons for quitting my job. It was not the easiest decision to make, and yes I did not give the proper two weeks notice...but i had to do what was best for me.
The organization I was working for was already on shaky ground(Paycuts, job cuts for full time staff, etc)
Yet somehow they managed to get money to redecorate the community hall, while it is likely a donation, it was a perfectly functional space. One person comments that it isn't 'elegant' enough, and someone coughs up the funds to make it far more fancy, while we the little people are suffering at the hands of some red tape.
Two-The shifts were ridiculous-early afternoons here, mornings there. Not to mention that even trying to get shift coverage was a joke. I at some point gave up even asking, and was coming in sick often. Masking it became an art form. My commute was hard-two buses each way, not to mention that coming home at 9pm while i live in the hood(yea it is the f-ing hood) is not the most safe for me.
Third-I was attempting to look like I wanted to go somewhere there. I was picking up assignments, picking up shifts without question, making points at the meetings,etc. And it didn't seem to make a difference.
Fourth-Double Standards. Ok, so soandso can come in and not come to the desk for 30 f-ing minutes, while she is on the clock? Just wanders around the building, and acts like she is working when she is not. I got so sick of this BS, I mentioned it to my supervisor, but does she do anything..NO! Not to mention said person not coming to the MANDATORY meetings, and gets away with it more then once!

So basically I am done with this. I have said my piece. And I am moving on.
I am going back to school, and that is all I have to say about that.

Life in the Augustus

Yea, I know the title makes no sense-but here is a recap of August(not counting the one thing that hasn't happened.)

-Wedding #1 Dale and Beth's Wedding-I was a guest-Jay was a usher. I wish I had pics of him in his tux. He looked so handsome! *Squee!* The wedding was nice, the reception was fun but I had a few too many glasses of riesling and passed out at 10pm. Thankfully our freind Joe had a room, so the guys stayed up til 2am drinking and being guys. Horrible hangover the next morning.

-Gen Con- Hotel was nice, but too far away(we were by the airport this year). We got the new Rouge Trader book, the game is alot of fun-think 'Pirates in Space'. My character is called 'Lorayne Thornhallow'. She kicks some serious butt as the bodyguard of Rachsus Thorne!
Didn't get to do everything I wanted to, but I still had a good time. Next year though I am not missing Hentai Dubbing!

Wedding(reception)#2 Dan and Mary: This was a rough one, basically had not time to change or get ready as we had to go straight there after we got back from Indy. I managed to pull myself together. We had alot of fun, Jay and I had a bit too much...so we stumbled home and slept it off.

Wedding #3(one week from Saturday)-Best freind getting married-first time being a bridesmaid. Will update on the event after it happens.

Work-ready to quit this piece of shit....
