Last day…. September 26, 2005

Filed under: Uncategorized — christinamyers @ 9:39 pm

Today was my last day at Hobby Lobby. No one, cept my good friend Val, cared the least bit. I don’t know why I care so much. I guess when you work somewhere for four years, you kinda hope that you left a mark. I guess it’s kinda sad. I don’t think anyone will talk about me with the fondness of Jake or Derick….or Cal. I guess I am just not a memorable person.

In other news, I had an interview with JoAnn’s today. The interviewer said he was really excited about my application and would probably be able to get me in the cash office. And, if I cannot do that “full time” he said he could get me in part time in Framing, which will also work out well.

Leaving was liberating. I felt like a huge burden was lifted off of me. I felt so good walking out…knowing that I was moving on to much better things…away from the “drama” of a rumor mill…not a craft store as I was led to believe.

I am going to Tennessee this weekend to visit my parents before I start a new job. I can’t really ask off right when I start…that never looks very good.

Thought of the Day:”I was going to get you a cake, but I didn’t know you left at 1.”

Hmmm…. September 8, 2005

Filed under: Uncategorized — christinamyers @ 7:43 am

I am reflective this morning. I have since put in my “notice” at Hobby Lobby that I will be leaving them. Do I have another employment opportunity yet? No. It’s kind of scary, but I have lots of job prospects.

Classes are going well. My Calc II professor is French…hehe. That makes me happy. I love hearing foreign accents. They are so soothing.

I can’t think of much to write right now. I think I will try more later.

Thought of the Day:
“Close your eyes close your ears young man
You’ve seen and heard all an old man can
Spread the facts on the floor like a fan
throw away the ones that make you feel bad

Kids today gettin’ old too fast
they can’t wait to grow up so they can kiss some ass
They get nostalgic about the last ten years
before the last ten years have passed

why you gotta act like you know when you don’t know?
It’s okay if you don’t know everything
Why you gotta act like you know when you don’t know?
It’s okay if you don’t know everything”

 

Gas shortage? September 1, 2005

Filed under: Uncategorized — christinamyers @ 11:48 am

Is that I am the kind of person who absolutely HATES putting gas in my
car…and, unfortunately, watching the news. SO, yesterday, after I had
to get a tire patched,  I noticed that my car is on E.  I
decide, “Maybe I should get gas so I don’t have to walk to
Marietta.”  While this thought is floating in my head, I get 5
phone calls from a friend who is freaking out over a gas “shortage”. I
finally DID hear wind of the “rumor” on the radio, but that it was
nothing to get concerned about.  i.e. DON’T FILL UP IF YOU ARE NOT
ON E. It will just make it worse.  Well, the entire population of
DUMBASS USA showed up at every gas station for 100 miles.  Lines
stretched into the street, causing a traffic nightmare.  Being who
I am, I screamed out the window, “I wish I
could panic over NOTHING!!”  FINALLY, I found a gas station that
only had, maybe 5 cars in it, so I pulled in and filled up my
legitimately empty tank.  In the mean time, I found it necessary
to insult all of the fucking MORONS who were sitting on 3/4 of a tank
waiting in line, BURNING UP THEIR GAS, to fill up unnecessarily. 
I swear, these are the people who would believe a rumor started by a
5-year-old that dinosaurs were coming to eat them.  These are
supposed to be the people who “know things”; who watch the news, listen
to all of the market analysts.  

That is my rant.  I was so pissed yesterday that I could not stand
it.  I wanted to slap so many people for being ignorant.  For
those of you out there who don’t know basic economics, take a look at
this:
