Suffering for Art's sake and yeah -- 06.20.07
(1:16pm Saturday) I’m sitting on a little chair in the Photographer’s studio where my cousin is getting ready for her wedding portrait. She brought me over to help her, but then again it looks like her future sister-in-law is doing all the helping. I seem to be here for support more than anything. But, that’s OK, at least I’m out of the house. I’ve spent too much time in that house since graduation. I’ve already chronicled my lack of variety since school ended, so there’s no need to go into that again.

Work SUPER sucked Friday. On top of having to bike to work and being tired before I even started my shift, work just totally sucked. That place is sucking the life out of me. Since I left for work early, since I hate being late to anything, I arrived early. Well, one of my managers saw me walking to get a drink and asked me if I wanted to clock in early. I told her that I had biked and that she needed to give me a few minutes. She said, “If you clock in early you can leave early.” That was the cheese that got me. I clocked in at 2:40 thinking that I would be leaving at 11:40 that night. WRONG! Another manager, the one that took over, told me, “You know you’ll have to stay until midnight even if you did clock in early.”
I said, “What?!”
“Yeah, but don’t worry, you’ll get overtime.”

So with that I not only stayed until midnight, I stayed until 10 minutes AFTER midnight. :( It was the shift that wouldn’t end.

I did finally have something to eat Friday, during my lunch break. I had something called a “tamale pie” and a corn dog. But, other than that I haven’t had anything to eat in a couple of days. Hell, as I write this I still haven’t had breakfast, and I won’t be getting anything to eat until at least 3pm. I don’t care, food sucks anyway.

(4:31pm Wednesday) I’ve been trying to write the rest of this entry of the longest time, without success. The last few days have been totally FUCKED UP! Thankfully today I woke up in a great mood. As I write this I’m fighting a impending headache. It’s getting worse as I type. :(

(5:36pm) Just woke up from a little mini nap. My brain shut down and put me to sleep. Whew, I’m feeling quite out of it right now. I’m craving something to eat as well. ARGH!

Now that I’m awake I’m starting to write my resignation letter. I’ve made up my mind that the unknown is better than crappy Ralph’s. I’m making this decision a couple of days after picking up my last check from the library (pictured below).

I got a nice check from my boss that could allow me to go a couple of weeks without working. I can’t go much longer than that though. So I really need to have a job in place before I quit crappy Ralph’s. That sucks because I obviously don’t have another job. Still, silly me has this idea to buy a new camera.

There is this perfectly beautiful camera by Leica that I want to purchase (pictured below).

The price is such that the choice between a car and the camera has to be made. Although, a school friend just told me today that he could sell me his BMW for $1,000. A great price for any car, unless it’s my stupid paperweight of a car. LOL Now I just have to find out what model it is, and see how it runs. Woo hoo, a BMW!

Speaking of cars, I saw this bumper stick on someone’s car.

End Communication.
