(aka Stuff Megan Thinks About Every Time She Works Nowadays)

Today I woke up and I did not want to get out of bed to go to work. I thought that the whole time I was eating breakfast and getting dressed. I don't want to go to work. I thought while I looked at my cat running around. I wanted to play with him. I did not want to go to work.

Hell, I never want to go to work. I'm quite lazy. I like lying in bed and sitting on my ass. Just flopping around all day. I never want to go to work. Because even though I can browse the internet and stuff my face, I still have to look presentable. And you know. Sometimes I have to work at work.

The other day I had a dream. A nightmare. I went back to Party City. I had put on my khakis and black t-shirt and plastic name tag with the faded letters and I had gone back to Party City to work for Halloween. I worked every day. With Emily. With Dustin. With DJ. I was given vague directions and then left to do all the things. My cashier's tills were all off. The deposit was wrong. The computer was malfunctioning. The power went out and the registers had to be rebooted several times before they would work. The ad prices hadn't been uploaded properly so nothing on sale was scanning at the right price. The store was packed and all the registers were in use. I had one stocker. Costumes were getting stolen, children were peeing in the aisles, babies were screaming. The toilet broke. We ran out of helium. All the balloon orders were wrong.

I felt so much self-loathing because I had gone back There. And I hated myself for it because I was miserable.

And then I woke up.

So many people didn't seem to understand why I quit Party City. Everyone hates their job, they said. The number of people who actually love what they do is incredibly low. The hours are good and the pay is decent, so you'd be stupid to leave.

And yeah, that's probably true. But most people don't hate themselves for working where they do. And I hated myself for working at Party City.

So I left. I quit. And I felt so much fucking relief. Even when I had no job and couldn't find one and had no money at all, I was still relieved. Because I didn't work there.

And yeah, I don't ever want to go to work. And I hate having to leave my cats at home while I'm here. I hate that I have to remind myself that I can't look at porn and that I have to unfollow all of my NSFW blogs on tumblr and that I can't download anything and that I can't personalize my browser the way I'd like.

But you know? I'm here. I'm here and I don't want to be, but I don't hate myself for being here. And it feels fucking awesome.

Okay, I just realized I don't work at party City anymore. Which means I don't have to wear one of their crappy ass costumes. Which means I can be whoever I want for Halloween. Which means....




SUPERHERO.

Just need to figure out which one. Aksdjlskdjlajdlk I'm so excited.

It is 7:20 am. I need to leave in twenty minutes. I am still sitting on my ass on the couch with a bowl of cereal on my stomach. I feel so drained right now, idk if I can take geology. I don't know if I can be totally present. But we're having another quiz on the geologic time scale and I'm already so lost in that class I can't afford to skip.

(and now here's where I get ramble-y)

When I was about 13 I could pick up the phone and ask someone who knew me, knew me probably better than I know myself, if he thought I was a bad person. And he would always say no. I could ask him if I were a bitch. And he would always say no. But now I think that maybe he was just saying that to shut me up. Becca says I'm good and kind and give more love than she ever knew was possible. But I think she only says that because I feed her.

Costume-wearing starts Friday at work. I need to find the belt to my taxi driver costume and I need to get one more since I work all weekend and that's three days. I only have two costumes right now. I know some people don't like Halloween because they don't understand how anyone could want to be someone else. But right now, I'm really looking forward to being able to escape into that.

Sorry I haven't been updating this. It's not that I haven't had things to say, I just...haven't wanted to say them I guess. And so I keep distracting myself by saying, "Oh well everyone at my rp is waiting for me and that really needs all my focus, or "I NEED to update my tumblr," and other shit like that.

Sorry.

I'll try to be better? I really miss you guys and I haven't even really been commenting (but I have been reading).


Here's some things:

(it's a lazy-looking list because html + mornings =/= happy me)
* working on some projects for [livejournal.com profile] startrek_diary
* I've been trying to fix said layout for the last two days. I can't get the quick reply form to cooperate and it's pissing me off and I can't figure out how to fix it. Every time I do, I either break something or the thing I did doesn't do what I thought it would. Old layout up for now.
* Waiting for my tax form thingys from the school so I can get off my ass and file that shit.
* my cats are adorable
* fit is awesome
* work is work :|
* I want to get back in the habit of doing TiLT. I was super happy when I did those lists and I want to feel like that again.
* I kick ass in fingerspelling
* Not so in visual gestural communication
* I'm back to watching Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon. Hopefully I'll be able to finish this time!
* I would probably wither up and die if Kayla and Becca and Belle weren't at work to keep me from curling up into a little ball and saying 'screw it' to the world. Even though THEY don't read my LJ, you guys HERE need to know that these are the three people I see most right now and their teasing and flirting and love has kept me pushing on even when I am less than happy
* Doctor ordered some more tests and think I may have lupus
* I have a story to tell, but not enough time right now to tell it. Someone remind me to please?
* [livejournal.com profile] startrek_diary got paid time. It made ninja!mod happy and it made me squee to see readers piping up to thank the anon donor.
* I'm going to plan a meet at the Battleship and this time it's going to happen. I was kind of....super depressed over the break and so I crapped out on my lovely comm. I need to stop ignoring [livejournal.com profile] houston_loli in favor for st_d. It's like that poor comm is now my bastard child or something. But. um. Noobs. I think the new lolitas and all of the sweet just got to me for a bit. I was kind of sick of all of the sweet. No offense to all the OTT-loving ladies, but I like things more....CLASSIC. :| I think I am over that little brain-tantrum though and am ready to start making h_l be as awesome as it deserves to be. I want to do really disgustingly tourist-y things with my girlssssss~
* Now I have to go to work. Boo!

ALSO I THINK I WANT TO MAKE A NEW META ICON. EVEN THOUGH VINTAGE CHERRY IS LOVE I REALLY LOVE SOME OF THEIR NEWER PRINTS OMG OMG OMG. I'M TOTALLY SPENDING MY TAX RETURN ON LOLI INSTEAD OF PAYING OFF MY CREDIT CARDS I SUCK.

I fail, sorry. XD

I can't decide what to wear to work today! I've already worn everything once, and I don't feel like buying a new one. Here are my choices:

  • Taxi Driver
  • Indian
  • Disco girl
  • Poodle skirt

Halloween is coming.

I have some new friends on here, so in case you haven't been around in past years, get ready for a lot of bitching about people and me being tired. I'll try to post pictures when I dress up for work. I usually work six days a week and at least seven hours each day I work. It is, hands down, our busiest time. You ever been out on Black Friday? Yeah. It's like that. ALL OCTOBER.

I need a Halloween icon. I can't believe that I haven't had one. Ever. What the fuck self. This post will have to cope with my work icon.

After Halloween I've got National Novel Writing Month. I'll be trying to write a 50,000 word novel in 30 days. Yeah. Fun. Good times, good times....

After that I'm home free because Christmas isn't really that big of a deal. Except for the decorating. Yeah. That takes about two weeks. No lie.

Sorry I haven't been around much. There were some personal-ish things happening to me, around me, without me, etc. and I am notoriously bad at dealing with big life changes. I'm feeling better about things now (not that they're better, I'm just mostly done having my little angsty Spock moment) so hopefully I'll be posting and commenting more.

I may be picking up even more hours at Party City because right now it looks like my school job is going to die. The student doesn't actually need me and there aren't really any openings available to me. I'm conflicted about it. I'm glad because I'll be able to work with D.J., but I'm also bummed because I love my work at the school. I've gotten a semi-promotion thing at Party City though, so it's nice that people have to listen to me now. :3

OH HAY GUYS BY THE WAY THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A NOT ROUND BALLOON.

Just, you know.....for your info.

I've started RPing. I've never really been super into it, but [livejournal.com profile] startrek_diary is undeniably AWESOME.

Aaaand this post is winding down. I'm going to go pick around the internet and see what I can find to make an icon out of. Wish me luck or something. Idk. My mind is wandering now.

OH HEY. BIG NEWS. IT IS BAD. My pirate costume is gone. Not even discontinued. It didn't go on clearance or anything. It really bums me out that I can't wear it anymore. I'm probably going to pick up some poodle socks and a pink scarf to go with my skirt, and I've got a sexy taxi driver costume to wear now, but I'll miss my pirate outfit. I've been wearing it for years. Dustin and D.J. and Chris couldn't believe that they weren't going to have their little pirate girl working the dressing rooms anymore. Now they'll have to deal with a SEXY TAXI DRIVER ordering people around in the back. D.J. freaked out a bit about my costume choice. I don't think he likes the idea of me in anything even remotely sexy. It's cute. I love my managers. They're all awesome. But not Dustin. Just D.J. and Chris (who bought me fries btw it was awesome). I love these guys. It is seriously the only reason I've stayed here this long.

I can't wait until I can dress up!!!!

Apologies for the lack of updates, folks. Life has caught up and has decided to just grab me and drag me by the heels. The mess and confusion that lies in Life's wake as I scuttle to stay in line with it is quite glittery, much as I'd imagine those Sparkly Vampires to be.

For those of you out of the Facebook loop, on Independence Day I got into a car wreck while driving Mom's car. I owe her a new one (More specifically, another car. She doesn't seem to care if it's used.). Money will be tight for a while but I'll get by. There's a very nice Corolla I saw the other day and I'm leaning towards that.

She finally found a full-time job so I've taken over her work at the college on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. I have to be there by 7:30 so I'm really kind of hating that. Plus, it's freezing in the building and right now I'm wearing a thin summer dress and totally regretting passing up those nice thick jeans in my drawer. I picked up some hot tea downstairs though so that's kind of helping.

Now on to the important stuff.


Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince tonight.


I really want a shirt that says, "I'm the Half-Blood Prince" on it. I wish I had more time. I'd print a bunch and sell them at the door of the theatre. I'm sure they'd sell like crazy.

As it is, the Beauteous Beth and I shall be wearing our Snape shirts. Although I am kind of torn because I wanted to buy the new Bellatrix shirt I saw at Hot Topic. But whatever. I'm going to buy a car instead. Although I am kind of bummed that I can't keep the car for myself. I have no idea what Rob will be wearing but I wish we could find some way to make him match us. I feel like Beth and I are Harry Potter super-dorks and he's just some guy that enjoys them. Idk. Maybe my impression is wrong?

It's so weird to think that the books are over. J.K. has added to the apocrypha a bit by writing Tales of Beedle the Bard but it honestly just did not have the same significance the rest of the books did.

And I feel like I'm being pulled in a million directions fandom-wise. Harry Potter was one of the first things that I ever fangirled over hard. I think the next thing after that was Fullmetal Alchemist, and they've recently rebooted that franchise. I've only seen the first episode of the new series, but I loved it and I definitely want to see more. Add into that how heavily I've gotten into Star Trek and comics lately and... Well, I just feel overwhelmed with all of the information there is to take in right now. I feel like I need to take a vacation from life just to stay caught up in everything that is happening everywhere. I never even knew that an advanced preview of Half-Blood Prince was going to happen until just two hours before that was supposed to start. I completely forgot about Blackest Night even though I've been wanting to pick that up. I've barely touched the [livejournal.com profile] st_xi_kink even though I'm supposed to be helping to archive that bad boy. OH GAWD AND THEN THERE'S LOLITA AND I STILL NEED TO GET CAUGHT UP ON FMA.

How is it that I let my hobbies become like chores? I'm trying to reorder things in my mental hierarchy. I just tend to get very over-excited about things easily. I just need to cut back. Once school starts I won't be able to stay up until 2 or 3 in the morning squealing over whatever the heck is going on online, despite the fact that the internet is serious business (oh my gawd).

I need to make an appointment to get another tetanus shot. I keep cutting myself open at work. But it's hard because right now my mom gets first dibs on my truck until I buy her a new car, so I'm stuck up a river with no paddle. :[

AND OH GAWD I JUST DROPPED MUFFIN CRUMBS DOWN MY DRESS. D: I fail at life so hard sometimes.

And now I can't remember what else I wanted to say, so I guess I'll update this whenever my head stops spinning.

Love love love love all of you guys so much ♥

I barely slept last night. I would doze off for about fifteen minutes, and then wake up for the next ten and then fall asleep for the next fifteen and then wake up....

UGH. And I have to work today. I was supposed to work yesterday, but I was too dizzy to drive. :( I felt really bad calling in on Nancers like that. But it's not my fault, I couldn't drive, and none of those people I work with could come in.

Lol, speaking of work, I got an icon that describes it perfectly. XD

Ahhhh...I'm in so much pain....! I love it. (And no, I'm not some sort of masochist) But, there is something that is just oh-so-satisfying about working your hardest all weekend and coming home sore and in all sorts of pain, but also knowing that you have done your best, helped lots of people, and looked absolutely FAB whilst doing all of it.

I swear, this weekend was both total bliss and absolute hell. We are finally into the full swing of things at P.C. and Halloween is right around the corner. I'm so excited for the holiday, but I do abhor the way people (a.k.a. customers) blowing things waaay out of proportion. They tend to ruin the holiday not only for themselves, but for others as well.

Nothing particularly memorable has happened yet, but I really don't think that anything will top last year. Haha, I don't think I ever told any of you about it!! Okay, well it went something like this:

ME: *folding costumes and working dressing room whilst looking FAB*

FEMALE TWENTY-SOMETHING CUSTOMER: *comes out of dressing room stall and hands back balled up costume that is totally not within the confines of its package*

ME: Did you like this costume?

FEMALE TWENTY-SOMETHING CUSTOMER: No.

ME: Oh, I'm sorry. I hope you can find something you like.

FEMALE TWENTY-SOMETHING CUSTOMER: Oh, I'm sure I will, there were several others I wanted to try on, anyways.

ME: Oh, that's good.

FEMALE TWENTY-SOMETHING CUSTOMER: Yeah. *starts walking off* By the way, it's okay that I don't wear underwear, right?

ME: O.O ... *realizes she has to fold and repackage costume, turns to secondary dressing room associate* Can you fold that while I run these costumes to the back?


No lie.



For those of you who have been wondering, October is Halloween month and, as I work at a party store, I'm quite busy. I've picked up more hours so I haven't had as much time to be online. I've been reading your entries, I'm probably just not commenting as much as I usually do, nor will I be posting as much as I normally do. But, ne'er ye fear, November is right around the corner, and I will taking part in National Novel Writing Month and will, inevitably, be using livejournal as if it were Twitter. Haha, but I wouldn't do it if I didn't love it! Anyone else thinking of taking part in it?

Sorry for the lack of updates lately. The weather's been getting me down and I've just been dragging myself from here to there as necessary. It's really quite disgusting.

So, Beth is leaving me in a few days. I'm going to send her weird stalker-gifts like a major creeper. I've had fun chilling with her this summer. Just three months until I see her again now. *sob* I took her out for lunch today yesterday and then we got some awesomely lame photo-booth shots at the mall.

I'm supposed to see Sarah tomorrow, but she has yet to plan anything for us.

I was able to see Ben ONCE this whole summer. Damn Austin...stealing my lover boy from me. XD Nah...but I'm happy for him. It's been a good move for him, and so what if we can't see a movie every day for a whole month like we did back in seventh grade? We're adults now. This is just a transition period and anyways, we are totally going to teach at the same school together one day. (Actually probably not, because he keeps on changing his life plan on me.) It just sucks that I never get to see my best friend. :( BUT I AM HAPPY FOR HIM. Gawd, I love that kid. XD

Teddy Grahams are sooooo damn addictive.

School begins on Monday. My schedule is as follows:

Monday/Wednesday:
9h to 10h20 - Public Speaking
10h45 to 12h05 - Concert Choir
12h30 to 13h50 - US History from 1877 to present

16h00 to 22h00 - work @ P.C.

Tuesday:
9h to 11h20 - Beginning French I
12h30 to 13h50 - Composition and Rhetoric II
16h00 to 17h20 - Principles of Sociology
19h to 21h50 - Ballroom Dancing

Thursday:
9h to 11h20 - Beginning French I
12h30 to 13h50 - Composition and Rhetoric II
16h00 to 17h20 - Principles of Sociology

I'm also very excited, because Dustin (one of my managers) loaned me The Ice Man: Confessions of a Mafia Contract Killer. It looks so interesting!

Ugh.....I love my cat sooooooo much. DX I'm going to miss her once school starts. I've become so achingly used to spending all day in bed with her. XD

Now I'm going to bed though....because Sarah and I have a big day of catching up to do tomorrow. :)

Lol....yeah. Because the obvious choice of things to do when sticking together two people who cannot cook is bake. XD

Hehe, my Bethers and I are going to be baking like MAD after I get off work today. So far we're making funfetti cupcakes, lemon cupcakes, cookies--AND I JUST FOUND MUFFIN MIX! 8D Gawd, we are going to feel so sick from eating batter.....

Work news: Our new registers FINALLY went "live," meaning that they are hooked up to the corporate server and running. Touch screen~ They're pretty easy to use, and there's less room for error with them. I'm quite pleased. Granted, I do feel a sense of longing for our old registers (the very first register I ever used) and these do have several steps that I honestly feel are a bit redundant, but whatev. They are pwetty :3

I think tomorrow I am going to sleep in. And I think I'm going to try to go to bed a bit earlier tonight. I just feel tired and....out of it lately. :\

Lately I've been missing my mouth when eating and drinking. (lol) So I've had a lot of spillage on my clothing. This is especially embarrassing when it happens when I'm on break at work, because then I can't change and have to go out on the floor in my dinner. :[

Speaking of work, we're finally getting ready for Halloween. :D We had our first batch of interviews today, and we've got some candy and Halloween items/costumes from last year out on the floor. (Don't worry, only the deco and costumes are from last year. The candy's new--I swear!)

I'm soooooo excited. Halloween is my favorite time of year, and it gets to start in August for me. 8D





Now back to my paper that's due tomorrow that needs to be peer reviewed before turning it in.


Have I ever mentioned I hate peer review stuff? I mean, I'm not saying this to sound high-strung or anything, but I'm a good writer. Better than most my age. It makes it really difficult to go over someone else's paper, correct it, hand it back to them with about forty red marks on it, and then get mine back with nothing on it and just the words "You did a good job." That really bothers me, because I'm not getting anything out of it. I would like it if I could get some sort of feedback, like "Maybe you should rephrase this so it implies _________" or "Y'know, a better word here might be ________." Instead, I get nothing until I turn my paper in to my teacher and get graded. And then, it's a kind of one-sided critique, because I totally miss out on the chance to explain why I chose certain wording here and there, and sometimes that little explanation causes a person to suggest a totally different turn of phrase there. I feel like I don't improve with peer reviews. I don't mind helping out my fellow class mates, but I really wish that I got something out of it as well. :(



Ugh.....back to paper.

Independence Day fireworks pics are coming soon......I SWEAR!!!!

#

Ummm....why can't anything normal ever happen to me? Just wondering...

Example:

Why are you late for class? Cat threw up on my bed.
Why are you late for work? My neighborhood was closed off for a bike marathon.
Why are you late for work (again)? I got stuck behind a chuck wagon. (True story!!!)

What has prompted this little preponderance? Well, my glasses are broken. Want to know why? Of course you do! Well, Click for epic recount of the absolute epic-ness!!! )

D: WTF?! HOW does this kind of stuff keep on happening to me? And I really liked those glasses...they had zebra stripe on the insides. :[ Now I'm wearing my old ones that look really horribly crappy on my face and they make me feel all psychedelic because I'm not used to the old prescription anymore.

Want proof?

Here, I'm ugly now. :[ )

Well, okay. It's not that bad (especially since I'm comparing it to Beth's face! XD ), so I had to hold my fringe up to make me look all awkward and stuff. I don't like calling them bangs, because it just seems so....vulgar. Lol...I'm so old fashioned!

I'm thinking of starting up a Harley Quinn costume for I-don't-know-what.I can't wear it at work because our costumes have to be Party City only things, but...I REALLY WANT A HARLEY COSTUME!!!

She's my absolute fave! ♥

But yeah...I've found these two links (1 2) that I really like. I'm a tad bit nervous though, since I've never really partaken such a large project before. :$

Blah...I feel like making a long entry, but I don't really have anything to say. SOY MILK!!!!!

Recent Activity )

So that's it for now! I guess.... Maybe so.... I want to say more.

Oh yeah! I've been drinking LOTS of soy milk lately. Several large glasses a day. V. good for my health (I feel waaay more energetic) but v. bad for my wallet. I need a third job just to afford my soy milk!!! DX


(BTW, muffins to whoever can spot the King in my photos!)

SO I AM TOTALLY NOT GETTING READY FOR WORK, LOL. I took a shower and got dressed, but I am now sitting on my butt in front of the computer again. THIS DOES NOT BODE WELL FOR ME ARRIVING ON TIME GUYS. But I suppose it's my own fault. Oh, and Ever After is on and I freaking LOVE that movie, despite it's horrible historical inaccuracies. I mean, the clothes are beautiful.

I need to eat something before I leave but I can't figure out what. D:

Oh, and my brother may have just gotten a free car. WTF? Well, I guess since it's common knowledge I've got Dad's truck..... Blah...now he's being all moody and bitchy. I mean, if someone had offered me a free car, I'd be all sunshine and daisies.

And I just checked, and we have nothing in our house that I have time to cook. Damn frozen meat.... So I will just consume a bunch of healthy watermelon-flavored Jell-o and leave. I think. I don't seem to be getting off my butt any time soon.

It's not that I hate work, I just hate going to work. XD And now I'm just rambling for the sake of taking up time. Lalala.....and what is my brother throwing?!?!!?

Oh, am doing ScriptFrenzy this year. I think I'm going to do a screenplay for some never-to-exist movie about Dark Mysterious Matrix Girl. Oh, and I stole some fanfic100's list of word prompts for my own use. I'll be doing 100 stories about.....something. I need to come up with a topic. :\ Ugh....I am really not wanting to drive at all with the way gas prices are. Gross.... DX

I had fun seeing Ben and Beth this past week...they were the only ones who communicated any sort of wish to see me though. :c I can't wait to see Sarah later....and Houston Rufflebutts. XD

I DON'T WANT TO GO TO WORK!!! TT_TT

Also: started watching Petshop of Horrors. The manga was amazing and the anime is....significantly less creepy, but still creepy nonetheless. Ack.....but I have to go to work and can't watch anymore of it! ;0;

I REALLY need to take a shower now and get to the store and buy something to eat at work tonight.

BLEARGH!!

Computer's being gross right now, so I'll get the other pics up tomorrow after work. They're all edited and everything, all I have to do is stick them on dA. I've got about five or six I think. I'm also going to get off my butt and get that Valentine's Day prose out. Somehow. Not totally sure. I can't really think about Valentine's Day, I'm in shock from all the stuff and BALLOONS at Party City right now. But I'll try to get it out, 'kay?

Speaking of Valentine's Day....Audrey, Kim, and Beth's cards are going to be most definitely late. I need to get ink for my printer before I can finish them up. Sorry. I'll try to send y'all a little something extra to make it worth the wait.

Here's the only pic from today that I've put up so far:



Bright Light Walking by ~en-miettes on deviantART

Isn't my baby cute? Actually my baby has thunder thighs, you just can't tell in this pic. XD And I didn't really want to do the dA embed thingy but I'm tired and my html skills are....not working. Doesn't seem as if much is right now.

Good night. I'm going to bed.

All of a sudden I find that I am dying to get my hands on some black punkma stuff. Which makes no sense because I really, really, really, really hate punkma. I just kind of want something so I can be all "yeah I hate this, but I bought it anyways because I'm loaded like that." Except I'm not loaded, so I can't afford to just buy stuff I hate just for the sake of buying stuff.

But I did get paid today. I think I'll buy some socks.

Speaking of Party City....I'm not there right now (as I'm sure you guys have noticed). I started feeling really bad, so they sent me home. I think the managers are worried I'm going to end up in the hospital again, and they don't want it to happen on their watch. Kidding......

In good news.....

I GOT KIM'S PACKAGE TODAY! The coat dress thingamajig fits like a charm. I'll post pictures when I'm feeling better. But yeah.....I was really excited it finally got here. I was all "omg when's it gonna cooooooooooome," which is weird because I'm usually pretty level-headed when it comes to waiting for packages. It's usually when they get here that I flip out.

Bah....oh well. Me = happy.



AND OMG PROJECT RUNWAY GUYS!!!!!!!! Christian's outfit was totally FIERCE. And I am so glad that cry baby Ricky is off. I really didn't like him. I'm not sure who I want to go next....I think everyone I didn't like has been given the boot at this point.

So? So? Any final three predictions? I think it's going to be Christian, Jillian, and......I'm not sure. I like Chris' stuff, but the judges' don't always seem to. I guess I would be okay if Sweet Pea made it to the top three. But I don't really like Rami....so not him.
