So here it is, September 27th. I have been awful about updating, and now I understand why that happens with CPs. For one, there is a lot that we can’t go ahead and publish on a blog. Stuff that happens backstage, stuff that happens with guests.
I’ve been working a lot. Since the end of August, I’ve had 6 days per week on the schedule – generally around 43 hours or so. There’s usually one or two 9+ hours thrown in, so the OT is nice on the paycheck.
Finally, next week, I have two days off. They’re not consecutive, but there are two of them, one of which I’m going home for, so I can’t wait.
On top of work, I’m taking my two online classes which have been a challenge to put it nicely. I have discovered that online classes are not for me. I need instruction. It drives me crazy that I’m spending an additional $180 for each of these classes for the privilege for them being online and then there is no instruction or powerpoints in either one.
Like most CPs, I’m at the point of being really homesick. This being away from Brian and the rest of my family has been really difficult. I think the other hard part is I don’t have many friends. There are a couple girls at work who I hang out with once in a while, but more often than not, I’m on my own. That makes for a pretty lonely experience. I know part of it is that I’m not a party girl and I’m generally in bed fairly early compared to most of the others, but it still stinks.
I still like my job, for the most part. I want to see about getting cross trained in the Auto Plaza (where you pay for parking) just so maybe I can get one or two days there a week to break things up.
I’m going to do a Top 10 post type of thing of things I’ve discovered about people while I’ve been here. I almost wish I was a sociology major, working here is a major case study!
Until later, have a magical day!
