where is my mind

229/365



I sometimes wonder where I will go after this lease is up. I would like to travel, but that may require me to quit my job. I can't imagine being jobless ever. I've been working for 5 years. It's all I've known. I've definitely held out on so many things because of it and I hate it for that reason.

I've been looking for some temp jobs and jobs that don't expect me to come into an office everyday. I've found a few freelance photo jobs, but who even knows if they're interested in my work. I've thought about serving jobs, but then they usually require experience. I hate that. How am I supposed to do any job if they want prior experience? Isn't that the reason why you get a job anyway? To learn and grow from that job? I feel like people are too quick to write others off. I once applied for a photo job that would have consisted of me taking photos of hotels and people who rent our their condos for those who are traveling. They shot me down because I don't have experience with shooting interior architecture or whatever bullshit reason they gave. I don't need experience when I feel like I've already mastered composition and lighting. But...I suppose this is the way the world works.

I slept for 12 hours. There's only a few days where I can actually do that. I must've been really, really tired. I completely ignored all the text messages I had gotten last night, slept right through them all! My apologies, friends.

I woke up at 7am. Two hours before I had to go to work. It was an easy day. Went by really fast. I finally learned how to use the scanner gun to write orders for candy and spices. Pretty interesting, those scanner guns. Looks like I'm moving my way up to the top! Not really.

I just realized that In about 2 weeks, I will have reached my 5 year anniversary. I think they send me a gift or something, and take my photo to be put into the monthly newsletters. I will also have my vacation next week. I think I'm going to Michigan with John for a few days. I don't really know yet. Actually, I kinda want to go to Florida, but I should probably save my money.

My first Sox game of the season tomorrow! Going with my friend Brett, good lord, I haven't seen him in years. Actually, I have a funny story about him. Our very first meeting took place at a Sox game, and during the "Kiss Cam" dealio, they put the both of us on the screen. My only reaction was to bury my face in my sweatshirt. Gosh, that was so embarassing! Hah.

Happy first day of Summer!

Today is my only day off this week, but I will be spending it on the south side for most of the day. I have a few errands to run and I'm picking up things from my parents house (mail, furniture, etc.) and John wants to get a haircut before he hands in his application for Trader Joe's. Gotta look all spiffy and clean.

Also, while I'm at it, I'll do my laundry for free instead of paying 1.50 for washing AND drying. Too expensive. I wonder if this is standard now, some times I think laundry mats would be cheaper. Maybe not. Oh, and gas is also cheaper on the south side.

I'm excited for this lovely weather coming our way. To the beach!

Also, I noticed that there is a full moon on my birthday! Will definitely be going to the Foster Beach Full Moon jam.
