Another new motto: Pretend to have it together even if you don’t!
Well, I’m pretty stressed out. I got in trouble at my second job. The new schedule was not up when I left work last Friday so I asked the manager who makes the schedule if he knew my shifts for next week, he said I’d be working only Friday, then the week after I would have more shifts. This made me happy and I told him so because I have a final project and test the following Tuesday. He put me on the schedule on Thursday and of course not knowing, I didn’t show up. They called about 15 minutes before the shift was over to be angry and let me know if it ever happened again I would be fired. I have 2 phones and nether was busy that day. WHAT??!?!? Why wasn’t I called earlier? I am NEVER late and wouldn’t dream of not showing up for a shift without a good reason and letting them know. He said he tried and tried to call me but there was no answer or machine. My cell phone registers callers numbers even when no message is left. Nobody called it. It would not have been so bad had I not been working on my classes final project for hours and having a very very difficult time with it. I had just spent almost 2 hours banging my head against the wall trying to understand a concept that just wasn’t making any sense to me, they picked the perfect time to call. Soooo, minor meltdown, but my housemate was home (she is sick :( ) and helped me focus. Unfortunately, at this job there is a mandatory meeting on Sunday, which of course I can‘t possibly make because I have my caretaking job which is a 48 hour shift Saturday night to Monday night. Since I hadn’t seen the schedule till Friday, I am giving very short notice that I won’t be showing up. I might get fired anyway. I hate the concept of being fired, but I could definitely get an easier job that pays more money. I do like working there, but it isn’t for the money, just the experience. So we shall see. I have to go back to the caretaking job in a couple hours. My final project is close to done but not quite. The final test is on Tuesday and I get back Monday night so I’ll have to do some cram studying after I put my charge to bed. I feel like I don’t know anything. Stupid stress. It sucks. It sucks so better suck it up. <º)))><,…·´¯`·.¸.¸.·´¯`DO YOUR BEST!·-·´¯`·.¸.¸.·´¯`·...¸><(((º>
