That Deli Life

10 Oct

Today was my 3rd day overall at HV.  The past two days, I’ve been working in the deli at HV. And being completely honest, I think I like it better at the deli, but I guess I don’t really have too much to go on. There’s just a lot more things to do in the deli. And not everything is “bitch work” because you’re new, which I kind of feel like that’s how it mostly is up front.

Yesterday I was trained, made hummus, made lots of sandwiches, and bagged lots of meats and cheese for customers. Today I did all afore-mentioned, minus the hummus, plus used the meat slicer. That was pretty interesting. My favorite thing to do in the deli though is probably use the sicker machine. You just punch in some numbers for the product, then BAM! It spits out the sticker label then you stick that on the product. Call me lame, don’t care.

Yesterday my cousin who works at HV came to get a sandwich. I don’t think he knew I had started working because he was surprised to see me, and I was kind of surprised to see him. But it was all exciting.

Most of the people I’ve been working with have been pretty cool and chill. I guess there isn’t a manager as of right now in the deli, so everything is pretty laxed. Also today, I accidentally used “suppes tired” in front of my new co-works and was judged hard core. LOL. After that happened, I basically said all of the abbreves I use. Probs, whateves, etc. but it’s cool though because they make fun of me too. Somethings never change. Haha.

Other than working at the deli, my week has been super stressful. I had two tests this week—one in my hardest class, the other in my easiest class. I stayed up really late for the first half of the week studying for the hardest test. Then after that I kind of was just like meh, but I think the second test turned out to be okay, so no worries there.

If I’m being completely honest, it’s been one of those weeks where it just sucks. I wish I could that things were better, but I can’t. Sometimes things happen, and maybe it happened for a reason, but it was a punch to the gut. I wanted it, but I don’t think I realized how much I desperately and whole-heartily wanted it until I was told I couldn’t have it. So now I’m basically back to square one. I just don’t know where I’m headed or what’s ahead. And every time I think about having to think about what I should do next, I just don’t want to think about it. You get me? I hate facing this reality. I hope things get better from here, because it sucks, guys. I guess it’s just one of those obstacles in life, huh?

Peace out, girl scouts.

Thursday to Thursday

13 Dec

Well. It’s been exactly a week since I’ve been home. The amount of productiveness (not sure if that is a word either) that has been occurring in my life is about… none. I might or might have not told you guys, but I signed up for Netflix for the free month. And that’s pretty much all I’ve been doing. I finished watching the 2 seasons of DC Cupcakes, watched almost a full season of Grey’s Anatomy, half a season of How I Met Your Mother, a handful of episodes of Scrubs, a couple episodes of Downton Abbey, a whole season of Kate Plus 8, half a season of Say Yes to the Dress, and also Parks and Rec. I also watched Pocahontas, Thor, No Strings Attached, Note By Note (a documentary on the making of a Steinway & Sons piano.), and a documentary on the Royals (not the baseball team). Pretty sure I’m missing some. Also I went to the library and checked out season 7 of Boy Meets World. Love that show. Yesterday my mom basically called me lazy for doing nothing but staring at my computer screen. What else am I supposed to do on Christmas break? Whateves.

I have been falling asleep pretty early and waking up super early this week. I think I actually woke up at 5:30 once. But because of that I’ve been able to watch the Today Show a lot this week. That’s definitely one of my guilty pleasures. Not going to lie.

Anyway, early Saturday morning I’ll be on an airplane leaving Pimpdence for Arizona! Whoop. I love flying. I haven’t really started packing, mainly because I hate it so much. To be honest, I’ll probably end up just throwing things in a suitcase, per usual. The bad thing about traveling with my dad is that he likes to condense things. So I will pack a full load, then when I get to his house he’ll say, “Oh you don’t have that much stuff. You can just put your stuff in our bags.” Then I’ll have to unpack everything. In reality it would be easier to just take my own suitcase. Ai Ya. He also expects me to go without a bag/purse. WHAT!

Obligatory sentence about that kid hitting the principal at Chrisman –> I’ll just say that I’m glad I got out of there when I did. Bad year for WC.

Also, if you need some new Christmas music to listen to, I highly recommend Ben Rector’s Jingles and Bells. Free download of that CD here. He’s definitely one of my favorite artists.

S/O to CATHY and MORG! Happy early birthday, ladies! Glad I can call you awesome people my friends! Welcome to the 20′s! *<|:)
