final update [Jan. 5th, 2006|01:27 pm]
[music |killers cd]

So I thought I'd stop updating for real this time seeing as how I never have time, nor the energy to update. I was going to do a final update, but that story is too sad to tell. Needless to say 2006 is off to a super fantasgreat start. So, if you want updates on me post-college, well I guess you'll have to speak to me--or stalk my myspace b/c sometimes I blog stupid roadtrips as there is nothing else in my life.

happy 2006.

Happy Holidays [Nov. 27th, 2005|03:48 pm]
[music |"Come What May"]

So the holiday season is upon us. I had the option of taking off work on Friday, but I thought, why sit around my house when I could make money? So, instead I opted to go in for an 8-4:30 shift. I did my normal daytime work all day. But at least I know what it's like to work more of a regular day schedule. It was neat. The place was fairly empty, so it was very chill.

Thanksgiving (wait, we had a holiday?) wasn't all that great. I had a frozen tv dinner alone in my bedroom. Then I had cocktail hour(s) which consisted of diet grapefruit soda & too much raspberry vodka. Then I thought it would be a good idea to drink my peach schnapps straight. I'm just full of good ideas. Needless to say I fell into my own wall and passed out at 9:30 while trying to watch Finding Nemo. Needless to say a tad bit hungover the next day. Thank god for cwackers. My dad had mentioned the other weekend that my parents were going out to dinner. No shock there that they canceled my favorite holiday. Whatever, I probably had a better time with my frozen tv dinner that I got for a dollar at Giant anyway. I know, I'm super cool!

Anyway, it's not like other people didn't offer me there homes. But I felt intrusive on other people's families. Even one of my night workers told me to come to her house, but I felt like that would have depressed me more, especially at the holidays. Oh well, holidays were made to be disappointing. I'm hoping to not be around for Christmas. I really am.

So anyway, I was at work on Friday, low and behold I get a phone call from my sister. She called me at work to tell me my Aunt died. Why she had to call when I was taking my break, I don't know.

Anyway, I guess I was expecting it, she had cancer. My sister had said she was in a hospice anyway. I'm just a tad angry that no one but my sister would tell me this. But I'm also not surprised. As is I do not exist, so whatever. I don't know when the funeral is. I don't know if there will be one. I don't know if I'm even welcome to go.

Happy holidays.

On a happy note for this entry, we had cake at work on Thursday. We all pitched in and got one of the evening co-workers a cake, card, and little gift. I think he really liked it. It was fun and the 3 women and I sang Happy B-day (way off tune), then glenn played us 2 songs (he's a musician other than working in the evenings). It was fun to just sit and chill with them. We laughed and they explained to me who Paul Simon was, lol, I'm the youngin'. Then the bossman let me go home at 8:30 with pay til 9pm since it's the holiday. Good deal I say.

growing pains [Nov. 12th, 2005|02:34 pm]
[mood |nauseatednauseated]
[music |"Welcome to my Life" - Simple Plan]

So, I thought I'd give a short update. Things are alright I suppose. Well, not really, but they'll get better I hope. This weekend is really slow, but I'm going to wal-mart later b/c I need a few things. Work has been alright. Tedious at times but alright.

Anyway, I'm looking up apartments nad my move date is sometime in December. Problem though, have not yet told the family. Not sure how to do it. I had a dream about it the other night. I told everyone at the supper table and they told me I wasn't moving and that was all there is to it.

I'm really afraid that will happen. I'm afraid of no one helping me and never getting out. I'm afraid to tell them b/c how do you start that conversation with people that don't ever speak to you or look at you except to say "you use too much water" and "you almost made your father late for work" (b/c its my fault he doesn't get up early enough). How am I suppose to do this, I really don't know. So, I'm just stressed and scared to the point I'm making myself sick all over again. I just get so nausous. But hey, that's stress for you. I just have the "I want to go home" feeling, but where's that.

So anyway, I'm looking up cost of movers and what not in case worse comes to worse. I'm nervous about the whole thing, but I think it's right in the end. I just know I can't stay much longer. I'm on the edge as is, with one foot off.

I feel like I should attempt to make this entry somewhat happy. So. 1. The pants I bought at NY & CO a month and a half ago are now too big--yay! 2. Shopped online at work while making calls--hehe, we needed a break 3. Talked about traveling with my two nightly co-workers 4. "Not that I'm into Day beds or anything" 5. Giant Salad Bar, mmm, I heart it. 6. the new Vanilla White Russians from Kahlua (yummy yum yum)

Homecoming! [Oct. 22nd, 2005|08:00 pm]
[mood |tiredtired]
[music |"welcome to my life" simple plan]

SO I haven't yet updated on homecoming, despite having an awesome time. So, here's a mini update with homecoming as a list:

-Ride up with Caitlin, INSANE. She wanted to give me sedatives but we had such a good time on the drive up and talked and sang non-stop
-Got to Lyco to greet many sisters
-Creepily waited inside Muffin & Tasha's room for their return
-Went to dinner at TGIF's with Ingrid, Cait, and Jenn M (I still feel the need to put the M for some reason, despite fact that Jenn J was not there, lol)
-Went back to the floor to drink & be merry
-Went to the bar
-Caught up with a bunch of Lyco people
-Screamed in angry voice
-Made too many drunk phone calls
-Bed around 4ish?
-Sheetz for breakfast/lunch next day, went to Lycoming Mall with Ingrid, Cait, and Jenn M.
-I bought wine! (yes at the mall)
-Returned to floor to hang out in lounge and say by to twinage
-WEnt to spaghetti dinner, had very nice time
-Drank more after! YAY! Played games
-Somehow wound up at the Pub b/c things died down for a while. Grabbed some drinks, adopted beers with Lizzy, ran into Lauren
-Back to floor to talk in Chelsey & JQ's room
-Sleep, woke up next day to go home. Sisters clinged to our legs, despite trying to escape. And no one will help you with that. They'll just watch or laugh...both probably.

Okay, sucky update, but wayyyy too much happened to update. I had a good time. It was just weird b/c when I'd just want to sit down and relax a minute it was like, oh yeah, I don't have a room do I... haha, but it's all good. Weird being on the other side and seeing some of my close friends still at Lyco, but it was nice to catch up with everyone. It was a mini-vacay from the real world. A runaway if you will. Lord knows, a runaway is good for anyone.

happy update [Oct. 3rd, 2005|09:17 pm]
[mood |sillysilly]

I decided not to update on the homefront as that always makes for a yucky entry and stick to the happiness.

I found out today I got this Friday off, so I can go to HOMECOMING :) Cait is picking me up on the way--she is my hero. I owe her my left leg. Probably an arm too. There was some stuff going on at work, but my boss told me I could have off and that I should have fun & enjoy myself (have I mentioned I heart my boss?).

Anyway, I also got to talk to Cait & Little yesterday (Sunday). Very happy about that. Then at work today, Megan called. Double yay for that too. Even though I just finished my one hour break, I decided that it was more important for me to talk to Megan for awhile and just make up any missed time later on (which I did). It's been an Alpha Rho over load these days! Also got to talk to my twinage online. I was pleased that she and Kelly are coming up (even if Mangoes is closed, I know, it sucks!!!). But anyway, it will be nice to have a weekend away from Bangor and see my Alpha Rhos. And some independent friends will also be there (like BuddyH and T), so they are planning a Pub gathering, so I might have to hit that up as well. Anyway, I'm gladd that things worked out for this weekend. I would be bummed if I couldn't attend.

Now it's just this waiting til Friday thing.....

update [Sep. 11th, 2005|10:05 pm]
[mood |sleepysleepy]
[music |"Welcome to My Life"~Simple Plan]

So, since my last entry was private and blocked from well, everyone, I thought I'd do another entry (look suitemate, something for you to read!). Anywho, the last entry was loooooong and whiny, so I was like, no one really needs to read that, so I just made it private for me....I think. Not that I'd know if I didn't because I'm not great at the LJ thing. Anyway, it was about my parents going on vacay and not telling me. Anywho, maybe it worked out for the better b/c I had the house to myself...well and mi hermana.

Anyway, work this week went pretty well. On Friday we were listing to music online, so that was fun, and I got shown more things around the office--THey let me EDIT a letter!!!!!!!! It was fun. There was a weird section in it that was really lengthy, so a co-worker and I adjusted it--that was my excitement of the day, I felt proud.

Anyway, I also got to go to my first meeting. When bossman told me I was going I was like whaaaaaaat. It's the weekly advertising meeting, and I actually got another assignment during it--although some parts I was confused at b/c I'm just getting started into the recruitment advertising, but I felt like a big girl for real b/c I got to do something somewhat more grown-up that was unexpected. And he also asked for our opinions--okay, which maybe I blanked a little on--but it felt good to feel of value to someone, ya know. Anyway, later that day we had another short meeting with the evening workers (phone interviewers) and he mentioned me doing a good job during that one and how a project I had been working on with my refiling was going to help us in tracking therapists and whatnot. So, again, I felt good about that. We also got a thank you from other states on the great job recruitment has been doing--which is completely awesome!

Oooh, also got to see a co-workers son, she brought him in---soooooooooo cute! New lounge baby??

Anyway, not my normal list, but I felt like paragraphs today.

My Bangor Buddy called me drunk last night at midnight when I was in bed----so funny and very hard to have a conversation with!! I also talked to two of her other friends she was with back at her school and one of them asked about me coming out to the farm at the end of october so they were fun to talk to. She also made me promise to call her drunk from homecoming so we would be even--lol, that's one thing you really shouldn't ask for!! hahaha. Anywho, must get things ready for work tomorrow and go to bed. I went big kid shopping today and got my bag of spinach for the week. And other junk like razors, soap, instant hand sanitizer (for work), tissues, paper sacks for lunches (well dinner, I break at 5:30 or 6), and face wash. Oh, my shopping trips are oh so exciting!

. [Sep. 5th, 2005|04:08 pm]
So I ended my last entry with Who knows. I should have ended it with Who cares. That would be more appropriate in every sense of the word.

Have off from work today, stupid holiday. Wishing that I didn't have off. I'd much rather be working.

Did laundry today, but I didn't go to the store to buy salad stuff, so it looks like I'll be taking a bagel leftover from my pack last week to work for supper. I'll have to figure out how to get to Walmart from work on my own. I asked my mom before but she won't tell me (there's a shock). Maybe I'll just go to Giant on my lunch hour and buy some stuff there...or maybe after work b/c I really don't want that stuff sitting in my car for 2-3 hours.

Wow, this entry is action-packed.

On a scale of 1-10, I'd say my stress level is about a 14 right now. 6 months cannot pass soon enough. Or maybe a year. Who knows.

yup, i did it again.

busy girl [Sep. 3rd, 2005|02:15 pm]
[mood |worriedworried]

So, update of what I learned during week 3 of work. I decided maybe to post a little more on each listed item this time since I normally don't and people probably get confused, and I sit here laughing because I enjoy my work stories. Anyway......

1. Fun conversations of hair styling
2. Co-worker talking to a telemarketer (on calling cell phones) "Are you my friend? Will you be my friend? I just came out from under the bed...it was dark under there. That's where the mushrooms grow!!"
3. Hi my name is Jessica, is Glenn there. No, I'm sorry. I'm Glenn calling for Jessica. --what can I say, we're all good with words.
4. "Have a g'nice evening"--me talking to a therapist. oops. when good & nice and one.
5. Keeping a messy desk!!! Lol, I had over 600 resumes okay!! I was sorting.
6. "Staci, I'd give you these papers, but I think they'd get lost in your desk. I'll just leave them on the shelf"--my boss laughing at my "system"
7. My boss likes to sing. A lot. "Don't you wish your girlfriend was hot like me"--(yes he's male)
8. Food breaks area always good
9. You can get blocked for data mining multiple times
10."There will be NO Staci Hating in this department!!!!" hehehehhe. a co-worker when I announced I'd never seen Star Wars, nor will I ever while the other 2 were fans.
11.Calling my boss's cell phone for help at work for the first time
12.Finding more mistakes and overlaps! Yay me!


13.Having a co-wroker put in a random CD at night and having the VIRGINIA REEL play!!!! For real, it was sooo weird. I heard this twangy song come on and I was like, it isn't. SO then I told him about how my sisterhood has a dance to this and we kinda just fling eachother around. And he was like, "You aren't intoxicated when you do this now are you???" to which I replied "Of course!!! It makes it more fun!"

On the home front, my mom decided to talk to me this morning. Mainly to tell me that 1. My aunt is dying of cancer. The kemo didn't work. They have known for awhile, but why tell me, I'm just family? It has spread too far now, and there's nothing they can do. They sent her home from the hospital to die. 2. My neighbor has the same type of cancer. She is going to New York to the cancer center there this week. It's still primarily in her pancreas, but they said it was aggressive. She is the nicest woman in the world. She gave me cards and money at graduation, and always has everyone in her thoughts. But when my aunt went for treatment it spread more, so who knows what will happen.

Other than that, things are fine. I'm still looking for a cell phone plan. I found one I like t-mobile (a phone that is), so maybe I'll get that. Who knows.

Nice. Real nice. [Aug. 30th, 2005|09:51 pm]
[mood |nauseatednauseated]

So I get home from work yesterday after a long day and I find that my clothes and other stuff have been all removed from my closet.

Then, this morning I get yelled out for running out of things that I hadn't used yet purchased myself (back when I wasn't working and had like no money).

Nice. Needless to say, I cried on my way to work because I'm just sooo frustrated. Like almost beyond the point where I can think rationally. The only time I feel good is when I'm at work. At least they tell me that I'm good at what I do, and I'm not not treated like I'm worthless.

And I'm sorry, but if you want me out so much, freaking say it to my face rather then just moving my stuff all around. God. And I thought college had drama and back stabbing. Apparently it applies to "family" life too.

I wish I could live at work. I think I'll get a pillow and just sleep on my desk for the rest of my life.

And my car wouldn't start yesterday (also my fault), so I can't go anywhere even when I want to get away.

On a happier not my co-workers made me laugh a lot today and we had lots of fun conversations. And I impressed my boss because last night I finished all my phone calls (which is over 100) about 25 minutes earlier, so I just did extra work until it was 9 pm. Today, I refiled all the states resumes and chucked out old ones. I'm about halfway done, and it's looking a lot more origanized. I'm making it more accessible for when people call in regards to sent resumes. Also got some good prospect responses on a resume blast I did with abs. healthcare. Yay for me. At least something is going right.

[mood |sleepysleepy]

So I decided to update b/c I have a break of time from my Niece's wedding and going to Kohl's and maybe Blue Valley Farm Show (weather providing) with Bangor Buddy.

So anyway, my sister was in a car accident last weekend. I was upset about it, but thank fully everything was alright. I don't think I breathed for like 2 minutes when she was on the phone. Then I started crying b/c it just got me all worked up. Luckily everyone is alright. My sister's car was the third one hit, so she only has a broken bumper (that's the back thing right?). Anyway, she and the car behind her were both stopped b/c she was turning to go to Wendy's and some douchebag plowed into the car behind her, which in turn hit her. I guess the third guys car was smushed really far into the 2nd one. She told me she heard the 1st crash before they crashed into her--that must have been scary.

Anyway, thought I'd do another fun list of things I learned at work in Week 2:
1. Passing notes to your co-workers while you're on the phone is fun
2. Gaint salad bar ROCKS!
3. Soap in our bathroom is like soap at the PUB!!!! (ie, it's that foaming soap....I'm SOOOOOO happy about that)
4. The den of sickness continues
5. I can make about 350 mailers in about 3 hours
6. It's not really good when you delete all the information for every therapist in Pennsylvania (especially when that's like a minimum of 4,000)
7. Back-up files on other computers are God.
8. First big girl payday!!!!!!! :) (hehe, that's already spent)
9. Discussing how to nurse a hangover...hehe, morning drinks!
10.Getting offered a job as a PTA when I was trying to give this guy a job, not work in his office--but it's nice to know if things don't work out for me here, I can move to Maryland. And I called people from Damascus, I thought of you JQ. I wanted to be like, do you know JQ, she lives there. heheh.

So, I have decided to pretend that no one has gone back to Lyco, and all my friends (sans seniors) are still in their homes. Yup.
PS: I'm also looking at cellphone plans, let me know if you know a good one. I heard Verizon does not have service in my area. My sister has T-Mobile, so maybe I will get that. I don't know.
PPS: Hi stalker suitemate! (hahaha, I know you're reading this!! b/c well, that's what we do. Homecoming 112 will be in effect soon. It's a fool-proof plan, don't you worry)

In conclusion:
Me: What you gonna do with all that junk?
Jamie: All that junk inside that trunk?
Me: I'ma get get get get you drunk
Jamie: Oh, I thought it was crunk!
Me: Well, you can sing that version.
(yes, it is a song)
