When I was stateside I purchased a Logitech bluetooth keyboard for android at Best Buy because, well, blogging via swype sucks. It just does. Admittedly this isn’t perfect–but holy crap; it is pretty awesome. If you are a keyboard-centric kind of person like myself; combining this keyboard with the Galaxy Note (which I also love) is gosh darned perfect. It makes typing anything longer than a quick text message much more user friendly. I am a fan.
So, for the first time in a very long time I have absolutely no money. We are talking have no rent money for June, out of dog food, rationing my medications (…if I don’t eat, I don’t need diabetes meds #WIN?) Since I didn’t eat breakfast this morning before my first day at the new job I was sitting and waiting and looking up bannana nut bread recipes while my stomach growled and mouth salivated. I was feeling ever so pious and self-riteous; but then they took my ID picture. WOW–I look hideously huge and have a solid 32 chins. So, obviously this “poor diet” isn’t really helping me *look* better. ~sigh~
“What am I doing now” you ask? Sitting in the university library waiting for the HR department to send the paperwork I filled out this morning to another department which will send my “9000” number (turns out this is just an employee number–but everyone says the term 9000 with reverance so I feel weird just calling it an employee number) to the nice librarian IT lady who will take the picture she just took and slap it on an ID. Then I will get some sort of university email. I have an appointment at 16:00 to see my “office” which is pretty close to my house. But, since it is still under construction I will be mostly working out of my house. Yes, it hurts my brain too.
However, I have to fly to another island for a week, and then end up in Florida for some job shadowing and some training, and did I mention I don’t have any damn money?
It will work out okay…one way or another. However, please allow me to share my morning. I felt ever so smug that I had picked out my outfit the night before. In the morning I put it on and did my makeup. My eyes are extra fun and puffy because I have sort of run out of allergy meds…so, ya know, I’m extra pretty. le sigh.
Then, due to being almost out of dog food I had put some dog food together myself last night and cooked the following in the crock pot: bull foot (2); rice; garlic powder; water; oil. The dogs were THRILLED with it and in the short term shouldn’ t hurt them. BUT, unbenknownst to me the stuff splattered on the front of my ironed shirt and when did I notice? ah yes, when arriving for the first day at my new job. Thankfully I was wearing a tank top underneath it so I opened the shirt in a jaunty way which hopefull detracted from the grease splatter of beautiousness.
I feels so pretty today. 😦
However, the tax forms are filled out, my voided check attached to the payroll form, and I am sitting here in the library waiting for my (fancy) 9000 number. I think this means they will pay me eventually, right? I just wish I knew when…
Oh well, I shall power through.
*kisses, hugs, etc.*
