themegaloo: (DW- Amy- TOA/FAS Thinking)
Why does money suck so much? And also, why does my perception of it change constantly? There have been several points where I'd look at my bank account, see the exact same amount I have in there right now & be perfectly happy with it. Now? It looks less than full & distresses me because I KEEP SPENDING MONEY but am making less now due to the job slowing down.

I really do like my job, it's fun, it pays fairly well, there's some possibility of advancement if I can catch the DM to talk with her (IE, her visit not fall on a day when there's a gas leak behind the shopping center, closing all the stores and evacuating the roads for a while. That was weird. All is fine though, just precautions!) But at the same time, I think we've gotten a bit used to the fairly high turnover rate, hire constantly, and now I'm getting CRAP HOURS. Which means less money. I'm seriously thinking about getting a second job if this keeps up. But seriously, I have four days in a row off next week. WTF.

Other things- my birthday's coming up soon which is A- exciting! B- scary! I'LL BE A QUARTER OF A CENTURY OLD!! C- slightly stressful. I really need to go get my driver's license renewed now. How is it almost June already?!

Which also reminds me: LESS THAN A HUNDRED DAYS TO DCON. OMFG. I finally did purchase my badge yesterday because, uh, it's a little sooner than the last few times and I suspect that within a few years I'll be buying it at the previous year's con, which will be good. Few more costumes to do still, but that's still time.

Combining all the things mentioned before- I really want to go to Gally this year. Well, next year. Feb 2012. Which I realized, finally, may pose a slight problem. Getting time off at my job during Feb is NOT REALLY EASY. If I am still with this company, it's probably going to take some begging. On top of that, will need room & airfare & thus money & possibly someone to room with.

Sad fact- I was going to go to TimeGate this year, I have a friend who lives in ATL, just down the road. But his job is made of crazies and was all "we're sending you here! no, we're sending you here!" back and forth for like, a month or something and in the end he's off in another state on a work trip for the con (and even longer after that) so THAT fell through. And I don't want Gally to fall through. I NEED A PLAN & PEOPLE & THINGS NOT TO NOT WORK OUT. Basically, I need to warp all my DW friends into being Con-goers or all my Con friends to being DW fans. DIFFICULTIES. But I shall overcome because I am NOT missing it this year, I'm not. End of story.

Life would be easier with a M-F salaried job. Where do I find one of those.

Oh my god the rambling. So much rambling.

August 2012
