I can scarcely believe the weather today.
It’s 40 degrees Fahrenheit today.
I’m practically ready to break out the tank tops and shorts.
A higher temperature makes for a great mood.
I filled out three applications on paper (Mc Donalds, a Dollar General in Mason City, and KFC), as well as being in the process of two more to do online (Kum & Go [a gas station], and Walgreens).
For the Walgreens one, you fill out part online, and then have to go to the store to finish it.
I went and got all those not only beacuse I really, really need a job, but because the high temperatures today made for a very pleasant mood. In addition to doing it for that reason, I am also doing it because Amanda, Vanessa, and I are trying to plan a small Friday night party. Complete with the cheesy 80s movies, funky tasting alcohol, and loads of steam to blow off.
Let’s face it. Everybody I know has been under a lot of stress lately, Vanessa, Amanda, and myself included, so this will be a much needed chance to let it all hang out.
That is, if my parents O.K. it. The last few times I have asked to go out, my dad has refused permission, on the premise that “I don’t have a job yet”.
Technically, I do; I am still employed at Arby’s.
Thing is, I guess they’re having a bit of trouble, because they had to fire a couple of people, and had to put me on leave until possibly the end of March.
While I am a little bit torked about that, at least they didn’t fire me straight up. Sure, I might not be getting any hours for another month and a half, but that doesn’t mean I can’t work some hours after that.
So, yeah. Call it kissing up if you must, but it’s worth it knowing I’m that much closer to partying this Friday night.
That means doing exactly what I’m told, which I can have problems with from time to time.
That included straightening up a bit around the house and vacuuming two rooms. Which I did less than 45 minutes before the parents got home.
My parents just got home a little bit ago.
The cleaning the rooms went over well, and me bragging about having 3 paper applications and two electronic ones to fill out seems to have worked perfectly.
I am going to go bonkers waiting for Friday night.
