So I've recently realized that I hate my job because it sucks dealing with people. xD I'm noticing that a lot of customers will try to mess with me in some way or another. Like, by speaking gibberish in a quiet voice. Since I'm supposed to be an ass-kissing suck-up, I basically have no choice but to smile and nod, but not in the condescending way, obviously. There are nicer customers too, but mainly neutral ones and ones that seem kinda on-edge, so I have to be careful. Like, they'll come up to me, seem nice enough, but the second I'll ask them if they want a bag, they get all pissy at me. As such, I find I'm trying to smash as much fun stuff into my free time as I can to accommodate for it. It's not very pretty.
It's not all doom and gloom, however. My friend recently referred me to a job opening at Ross for 60 cents more than what I'm getting payed now. AND, the job title is Store Protection Specialist. Basically, I'm supposed to stand around and monitor the store to make sure nothing gets stolen. Which means no messing with other people all day long. Generally. Seems like a much easier job for me. I've already applied and I'm going to take the online assessment tomorrow. If I get the job, I think life will be a little bit easier for me. We'll see. Although depending on my starting hours, I may have to push back when I get my new computer... My first check at Walmart was $85, and I've been putting $100 into my savings per check towards my computer (I'm currently at $700!). So, yeah. Also, I'd lose my employee discount there, and since the computer I want is on Walmart.com, I would have to pay a bit more. Although I could probably get my brother to put in his or something.
Anyway, enough about jobs, it's getting me kinda angry, haha.
I recently got Minecraft working again on my computer. Yay~! For a while, it had stopped working after an update. But I decided to finally go online and search for a fix for it. Lo and behold, the Internet got it to work again! So, I'm happy. Although it still lags like crazy on my poor computer. It's playable half the time, though. I have to keep every setting at its lowest, though. I can't wait to max out the graphics on my new computer. I've already started building something sweet; if anyone reading this plays Minecraft, let me know and I'll send you my coolest world! I spawned on an island in a huge ocean world, so there wasn't a lot of room for building. So I just went underwater. But you won't drown. You have to see it to understand how cool it is!
Anyway, I don't wanna make this TOO long today, so the last thing I'll say is that I've been reading a lot more lately. It took me about a week to read through The Hunger Games, and I plan on buying the sequel soon enough. I've also been reading The Language of Life, Arrow's first full-length Pokemon fic, a whole lot more (And especially now that it's suddenly escalated into a full-out... spoiler. It's kinda... freaking what. That's the only way to describe it). In fact, that's inspired me to get back on my own fic, State of Panic. It's been about three weeks since I last touched my folders and files pertaining to it, I'll admit. But just today, I decided to buckle down and get a bit of it done. Right now, I'm just thinking up characters that I need for the next chapter before I can write it. It's been a bit of a pain, thinking them all up. But once I finish them, I can FINALLY get back to work on my outline! I still can't wait to share this story with everyone. I feel like it's going to be very enjoyable. But then, I'm the writer. What do I know? I wouldn't write a story I thought people wouldn't like. Unless I was thirteen or under. Then I would write it for myself with lots of grammar errors and assume everyone else would like it. Then only ever write one or two chapters of it. Then delete it a year or two later when I realized it was crap. True story. Haha! But anyway. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised by the amount of shocking plot twists. At least, the ones I have so far. I hope and plan to have many more to come. Anyhow, I'll let you all know when work resumes on that properly! I might just start writing it now, though, once I've finished a few more chapters and have a basic idea of how I want to end it. I think I'm already far enough along that I won't just give up on it. But I need a little more first. Just a little more... You will help me reach that potential! *Leader Morty wants to battle!* Haha.
Well, bye. Talk to you in the comments~! Peace.
Sidenote: I've also been doing a single Pokemon run in SoulSilver with a Raticate. I'm Level 50 and all the Pokemon I'm facing are just getting to level 30. I'm starting to ahve trouble with Team Rocket's Magnemites, though. Raticate doesn't know any Water/Fire moves, so he can't even get neutral damage on them. But I USUALLY OHKO them with Double-Edge. I'm also having trouble against Muks and Weezings. Darn that Levitate, blocking Dig! Same thing goes for Megnemites, obviously. Only weak to Fire... Bleh.
I had trouble against Chuck, but managed to beat him the third time around. I also lost against Morty due to being unprepared (and Spite, actually). Second time was the charm, though. Jasmine's Steel/Electrics gave me lots of trouble too, but I got lucky after the 5th time and beat her. Which reminds me, Arrow! It's terrible what you did to Jasmine! D: And Whitney had BETTER be alright. You can't go killing off all the cute ones all at once! Darn it! Heheh...
Pryce and the rest were easy. I'm at the Radio Tower right now beating up on The New Republic of-- ... I mean, Team Rocket.
Alright, that is all. DIS-MISSED!!!
