Long time gone

Share
So I logged onto LJ and noticed that it's been about 3 years since the last time I actually posted something on my journal. It has been an interesting 3 years (just gonna give an abridged summary). Left my retail job after being there for almost 6 yrs and then got an amazing job working as a technician for a cell phone company. Then when I'd almost been there a yr I found out that the company that I officially worked for would no longer be under contract with the cell phone company and I would be out of a job at the end of August. Since then I have been trying to find new work and have yet to receive any word back from the multitude of companies that I have applied to work for. The time has been kind of a blessing in disguise though. I have taken this time to focus on my writing and get some serious reading done.

So a lot has gone on in my life since the last time that I actually sat down and posted. I would check to see when that actually was.... but I have dial up soooo that's not gonna happen. Now I know what you people out there are thinking... dial up ???? WTF?! But yes, I still live in the dark ages... or at least my parents do.

So on with the post. So there have been two boys in my life. Both lead to absolutely nothing. Ed was a fucking freak. On the one hand he said that he wanted to be my boyfriend, then almost in the same breath would say that he wasn't ready for a relationship and say that we were moving too quickly. Keep in mind that he's the one who was stearing this ship. I was just going with the flow. But there was no real sence of loss there, we had a most nothing in common. But he was cute and fun to hang out with. I should have figured things weren't going to end well when he told me that he wasn't out of the closet. After my first boyfriend I had said that I would never deal with a closet case.

Then there was Adam, who I had a lot in common with. We were able to talk and have real convorsations and he seemed to be a really sweet guy. Then he just stopped talking to me. WTF !!! I had txt him before I went into work and then when I got out txt him to see what he was up to and have yet to hear back from that txt.... and that was a month ago.

I really think I'm just cursed when it comes to relationships. Guys are assholes and Girls are crazy (I do not mean to offend anyone reading this, but come on... you know its true)

So now on to my really big news. Drum roll. I'm planing on moving to NYC. I know, it's crazy and completely out of the blue, but I feel like I need a change in my life. A drastic one. So thats where this little brain storm came from. I figured what better place to go and completely change you life than NYC. Now it just comes down to me actually getting my act together and doing what I need to do to make the move. I have a roommate and a 5 month window between now and when I'd actually move, so I figured that I just need to get a second job and save up money for the next 5 months and I should be set. While of course trying to find a full time job in the city.

I'm terrified of the thought of leaving upstate and my family, but there is also another part of me that wants to go out and see the world and see where I can end up. I just don't have the self esteem to actually believe in myself to get this ball rolling. I know that I'm going to force myself to go out and get applications for jobs tomorrow, but still I'm not sure I have the faith in ME.

I'm gonna try and post every day/ other day, to keep you avid readers posted and hopefully I can get my shit together.

I know this has been really random and all over the place, but if you know me, you know this is how my brain flows.

Peace out cub scouts.

So as I previously posted I work in retail and it seems like every day I go in some customer seems to out do the previous days moron.  Like today... I had two of the stupidest questions asked to me. 

So here's the set up for the first stupid question. 

At my store we're running a promotion:  "Buy one T-shirt you get another for $10". 
And we have signs all over our store saying this, hence the quotation marks.

So this girl walks up to one of my co-workers who happened to be standing near me and asked
"So can you explain this $10 deal to me?" 
(If you're reading this and your jaw just hit the floor and you said in your head "How can a person be that stupid?"  you are not alone.  I had the exact same thought process)

My co-worker then said "When you buy one T-shirt you can get another for $10" and she said, "Oh okay". 

My question is how was this girl able to make it out of her driveway and drive all the way to the mall without killing herself.  I mean if you can't read a sign and understand it, but yet when someone basically reads the sign to you; you then understand.... I mean.... Wow.  This is one of the reasons that I feel you should have to pass an competency test in order to reproduce.  Stupid people just hook up with other stupid people and thus make even increasingly stupid children.  

And yes she did speak english, just in case there were people out there reading this thinking that I'm just being mean to someone who didn't understand the language.  I'm not.  She's just really really dumb.

Then the other stupid question that was asked to me.  I was ringing this mother and daughter out and the mom said to me
"Do you accept expired coupons?"
Wouldn't a normal human being that has ever used a coupon before realize that there are no stores that accept expired coupons.  I mean why would they have expiration dates if you could still use them after said date.  Then to add a cherry on the whole event the mother decided that my answer of  "no" was not the proper response and decided to be a bitch to me afterwords. 

Its shit like this that causes cashiers to be mean and bitchy to other customers.  People are cheap and stupid and want to get something for nothing. 

So next time you're in a bad mood and decided on a little retail therapy.... don't spread your bad day onto your cashier.  This may cause them spread your negativity to the other people they are forced to interact with.

1st post TA DA

Share
So here is my first post.  I figured that I'd describe myself for my first post rather then just fill out that little box for your profile. 

I'm 24 years old, and I live in the middle of upstate New York.  I work retail right now but I feel like that is something that's about to change.  One of the things that I've always wanted to do is write.  For most of my life I've been working on my own fiction, mainly stuff related to X-men.  I would love to write the next Watchmen (a graphic novel that wound up on the New York Times bestsellers list, for those of you that don't know)  I hope to use this journal as a way to get my writing out there and to get some constructive criticism on it. 

I love movies, books and comics.  Basically anything that inspires my creative side.  Swimming is also a passion of mine, although it sucks that its winter right now and I have no access to a public pool.  I will say this though, when summer comes, I plan on spending an extensive amount of my free time at one of the many lakes in the area.  One of the benefits of living in the heart of the Finger Lakes. 

Well I think that's a good intro to my life.  Hopefully I can keep up with this journal and make regular posts.
