My Personality
Openness to Experience
You do not experience strong, irresistible cravings and consequently do not find yourself tempted to overindulge, however you feel enraged when things do not go your way. You are sensitive about being treated fairly and feel resentful and bitter if you think you are being cheated. People generally perceive you as distant and reserved, and you do not usually reach out to others. You are a moderately imaginative person who enjoys a good balance between the real world and fantasy. You will help others if they are in need. If people ask for too much of your time you feel that they are imposing on you, however you are not adverse to confrontation and will sometimes even intimidate others to get your own way. You have strong will-power and are able to overcome your reluctance to begin tasks. You are able to stay on track despite distractions.

It's been nice knowing you, February

It seems that February is the only month since I've gotten this job that I have some TIME to update.

The Red Cedar Festival went well. The band got a lot of positive and helpful comments. Nobody had any comments directed towards me, which is probably more of a good thing than had I heard anything...even though my ego enjoys a boost every now and then. We went to a Pizza / Pasta buffet place after the clinic. That was actually fun. I sat at the table on the end with rather elderly folks. Flute and Clarinet players... the ones I never actually see much of or hear very friendly noises from. But I was my natural charming self and it was good. They showed me pictures of grandchildren and pets and I showed them pictures of my cousin's baby. I would say it was a fair trade. He's a cutie. Oh, and I enjoyed an adult beverage and was not carded. Captain and coke. Can't EVER go wrong with that. :-p Came home and had a shot of schnapp's and vodka. I have no clue as to why. I didn't feel like a vodka and squirt like mom was going to make. I just don't like Diet Squirt.

The downside to the whole band festival thing was the cymbals I used. They ended up leaving very VERY large bruises on my inner arm muscles. The cymbals were large and heavy and you know how I strive for excellence so I tried really hard to dampen whenever I had to. This is basically pulling "sharp" round metal objects into the meat of your arms to stop all noise. Add that to pure heaviness of these metal objects and you've got a recipe for more sweat than you could ever imagine. I thought the English Folk Song Suite would NEVER end!

What else? Oh. If you've received an invitation to my Facebook application, I've decided to NOT be affiliated with it anymore. I may be still listed as a developer but I don't even have the application added anymore. I don't think Jeff put it together right anyways. My friend couldn't even add pictures and when I asked Jeff about it he said he fixed it, but my friend still wasn't able to add pictures.

Last week I ended up with 43-45 hours, depending on what the final count was. When I get past 40 I just start to not care so much what I end up with. My co-workers are hating on me (and quitting apparently) because I am getting more hours than them. By co-workers I am pointing fingers at the first shifters. There's a staff meeting on Wednesday and I have a feeling my name is going to be tossed around like a FRISBEE on Kate's of the campuses anyway.

I forgot until just now that I will actually have to leave the house for a bit of time. I need to get stuff to do my taxes tonight, and I need to do banking. And here I thought I could sit around in my PJs all day. Boo.

*CONGRATULATIONS to Kelly and Andy on the purchase / ownership / moving in process of their NEW HOUSE! And by the way, congrats on the engagement, too. I may have never said anything, but I am happy for you.

*MICHELLE: We need taco bell. Oh, and The Pirates movie is at the Quad. I don't know for how long, but I am free this weekend anytime after 2-ish. (If you're still interested). All four of "us kids" will LOVE it, I'm sure. :-p

*HEATHER: I don't know if you read this or not, but I don't want to leave you out of my "shout-outs." :)

*KATE: You haven't updated in awhile. Hope things are going well with J.

*LAURENE: I think the short story I wanted to recommend to you was called "Strays." It's by Mark Richard.

*TO ANYBODY I MISSED: Comment and scold me. I shouldn't forget you. You are an important individual. (This is especially dedicated to JENNNNNN because she has decided that LJ was not for her anymore ;) )

Instead of trying to figure out the editing process...

New Schedule at work. May be better, may be worse. I ended up with another day off or something so I am not complaining. Something strange happened in the subject of payroll. I was entirely too exhausted to try and read the things in the staff log, so I have to wait until tomorrow to figure things out.

BUT, here's the new schedule, starting with tomorrow since you don't need to hear about my 16 hour shift anymore. ;)

2/16: 6-2
2/17: 6-2
2/18: Off / Concert ... someplace ...
2/19: Off / OPEN
2/20: 2-8
2/21: 6-4/4:30 / Red Cedar Rehearsal 7pm in Carrollton.
2/22: 6-2
2/24: Off / OPEN?
2/25: Off / OPEN?
2/26: 6-11
2/27: 6-1
2/28: 6-2
2/29: 6-11.

That's 40/40.5 hours the first week and 25 the next. So, if I'm not mistaken and payroll is messed up, I could get some overtime if I stay til 4:30 and work all my shifts in "week one." Hmm... .5 hours of 1.5x pay. Almost not worth it, is it?

Michelle, I hope we can find some time for lunch in this mess I call life. I've got a hankerin' to try the fiesta platter at our favorite spot.

Hope everybody had a good Valentine's Day. I think I did. From what I remember of it.

I would like to apologize.

To all who have been my LJ communication for the past few years, I apologize for absolutely forgetting I have a LiveJournal. Case in point, that means I have not been ignoring your posts, but neglecting my duties as an "awesome LJ friend." I guess even just plain old friend to some/most of you. I feel like I owe you the worlds longest LJ entry to make up for not keeping you up to speed on my life and not keeping up to speed on yours, but then I think that you guys may have lives hectic as mine and would never make it through. SO, again, I am going to say hit me up with a comment and I'll comment you up. Not like I'm playing favorites, but that way I will know who's had time to update and such.

Here are a few highlights to "my life":

* New job is going well. I work close to 40 hours one week and close to 30 the next. I get called in enough that I've already managed to pick up overtime. The clients are finally getting used to me, so that's a plus and a minus. (In case I never told... I quit at McDonald's in January and I work in adult foster care. Yeah, yeah, cleaning up people's shit...any sense of the word fits). I got checked off on meds last thursday. Now I can administer medication. Hoowaah... Got to pass meds today, that was interesting. Got attacked a few times. Funny but not.

* I made it to Holland to visit Heather (finally). It was good to see her again. Hard to believe we hadn't hung out in only 3 weeks. Seemed like forever ago. Michelle and I got her a microwave so I took that down. There was much snow and wind, but it was worth it. I hope to visit more often. Heather, you're doing a great job with your apartment.

* Tomorrow is Valentine's Day. Well, Thursday for the most part. To celebrate the "occasion" (Thursday) I am going to work 3rd shift. That is 10 pm til 6 am. Friday I am going to work 6 am til 2 pm. Yeah, 16 hours.

* Jeff is on some kind of mad dash to take over Facebook. He's creating applications and I make the info pages. I expect that some of you who use Facebook will at least check them out when I send you invitations.

* As you can see, my life is pretty much work and friends. Sleep should be implied, even though there isn't very much going on. To make "life" easier, I will post my work schedule here and hope to at least post once every 2 weeks with my new schedule. :)

Feb. 14 10pm-6am
Feb. 15 6am-2pm
Feb. 16 6am-2pm

I play solitaire when I get lonely and it does nothing for me.

I get the feeling I will double the solitaire soon.

I have a lot of feelings... and they don't know what to do to resolve themselves.

Do you suppose that's what they mean by "accidentally in love?"

Oh, and the "music:" section was next in line, not on purpose.

I am turning in my uniform at McDonald's of Hemlock. There is no turning back now. Hopefully all that comes from here on out is "real work."

Shout out to kelbellene for this awesome icon.

Happy belated new years to everybody.

LOL it's 1:07 on 1/07.

Thanks for stickin' by me during my period of instability and terror (working at McHell).
