Being happy...

This past weekend, and yesterday, have been pretty awesome.

I've spent a lot of time working at Six Flags, which, aside from the heat (and the kid who threw up green Gatorade while I was tattooing him yesterday) has been nothing short of amazing. The people I work for and with are great, and it's so laid back-- no one following me around to make sure I'm doing my work, no one nitpicking about stupid shit! It's so much more relaxed, and yesterday I worked independently for my entire shift. Pretty awesome! Even the customers are better then the pharmacy customers-- they actually SMILE at you and respond to your greetings. And they thank YOU for a job well done, not some guy who really didn't do much.

Jay & I have been going to the park for free for the past few days, and doing this really makes me wonder why I didn't think to apply at Six Flags sooner... having free parking AND a free pass to the park when you're bored is pretty damn awesome-- we could have been doing this ALL summer. It sucks that the park is going to be open only on the weekends, soon.

So yesterday I worked, then Jay & I came back and spent the rest of the day at the park, and then we went to Olive Garden and used a gift card I had (the service had been really horrible the last time, so I complained & got a $30 gift card which was really cool!). A pretty sweet day, all in all.

The only problem with these past couple of days, is that I haven't been dealing with the problems at hand at ALL. We are SO broke, and only getting broker. It's starting to look like Jay's job let him go (no one has concretely told us anything), but he starts working at Six Flags on Thursday... but we're both only getting a few days a week there, which really only helps a little bit. Plus, they pay bi-weekly which sucks. I only worked 9 hours at the pharmacy 2 weeks ago (resulting in a $30 check. Woo.HOO.) and I'm only working about 15 hours this week. And did I mention last month's rent hasn't been paid yet? And we're coming up on THIS month's rent being due, as well?

I wish I could get something more steady, even a 9-5, but school starts at the end of this month and then my availability becomes totally wacky.

During all this, I'm reminded of when I was a kid and I couldn't wait to be an adult. It all looked so EASY. Blah.

You will see through this, girlie. I was so broke in college. Not saying I am rich now but things have been better since. Keep your head up and keep smiling.
