Sorry about yesterday all. I don't know what happened. I guess it just finally hit me. Thank you so much for all your comments. You guys really helped make me feel better.
Today was kinda slow, seeing as how I didn't have to go to work again. Tomarrow i work basically from 1-9. This will be my second time doing the mid-shift, actually my first time doing it by myself. I'm sure it will fine though, and since I'm working the late shift, I can start on those duties early, and not finish late.
I felt kinda bad this morning when I realized that I forgot to make my dad's lunch yesterday. (Mom usually does it but she and danny are on vacation at the moment.) Dad's one of those people that if you don't make it for him, he just won't eat. Food isn't a priority to him. I tried to make up for it by putting in an extra something that he can eat in his lunch tomarrow/today.
But now for the good news! I got another $1,000 scholarship!! yay!! Thanks to another scholarship I got, the school promised to match it, and match it they did! Now my "finicial aid" rounds up to about $11,000! And considering my school is pretty expensive, it's definately going to help.
Please help me welcome the newest members of our FMA fan club, chie and rain shower! *throws confettii into air* on that note, I hear they are making an FMA movie, do out in Japan in 2005! Comments (9) |

Hey all! Nami-chan here. Here's a quiz from Donnie. I think it goes with me, after all, I am the Hitsuyou no musume! *fans self while looking out over top* Dao! The chinese Kung-Fu Sword!
You're Elemant is Wind. You're light-hearted, care-free, kind, sensative, and mysterious. You have friends and most absolutely love you. You can be calm and soothing one minute and ragging in anger the next so no one wants to get on your bad side. You're beauty is inspiring and magical.
I'm so glad I didn't have to work tonight. I spent some of the afternoon with one of my best friends who I never get to see. She always seems to be working, or practicing soccer (she's going to be an all-star someday, that girl is awesome!), or getting ready to move down to her college down south. I'm going to miss her sooo much. I don't know how it's going to be not being able to walk to class with her, and see her everyday. I mean, we had parking spots right next to each other both years we where able to have one. *sniff* I think I'm going to cry now. That and the fact that I really won't be able to see her again before she leaves because she's going on a family vacation. I really don't know what I'm going to do without her. I mean, we've always been friends, forever it seems. I know I can call her, but it's just not going to be the same.
Maybe the fact is that deep down inside I'm actually scared. Everyone is leaving. I've already lost one of my friends, she lives in colarado. Now, two of them are going to Atchison, one is staying here, and Lyndsey....she's going all the way to Luisiana. (i spelled it wrong, but you know which state I mean). I'm left all alone, lost in the world. Even my brother is moving out. I just...I just don't know......*cries* Comments (5) |

A day in the life of a bakery person.
Hello all. Sorry I didn't post yesterday, I really didn't feel like it. It just wasn't that good of day yesterday. Well, by reading the subject of my post, I'm sure you're all curious as to what it is I do. So, I shall tell thee.
Sunday: Iwalked into the department, to a pretty big mess. It turns out that the person who worked before me didn't quite do his job. So, I had to clean up his mess before I could even start on my stuff. And then, I had to do his job on top of mine. Sooo, the first thing I did was something I always do when I come in, and that is package the cookies. You guys already know how that goes....take cookies from sheet, put in package, create label, repeat about 50-60 times. After that, it's off to do the stupid garlic bread. This process is so tedious! first you take the little white thing off the package, you know the thing that seals it. then you take the bread out of the package. Then you cut it in half, put the butter stuff on both sides, put the bread back together, then put in new oven-ready package. Then create label. Repeat 40 times. Now, during this time I was asked to write on three cakes, which I did pretty well at, considering it was my first realy try.
Now then, by that time it's around 8 o'clock, which means its time to take the doughnuts out of the case and package them. They all going into packages of tweleve. Usually I make about 10 of those 12 packs. and of course, you have to make a label for those too. Then you clean the thing they are in, spray the doors, and then place those packs back in there. There is this thing where the fresh bagels and bread go. You take those out, give them special labels, and clean the thing. Then you stick those back in. While all this is going on, the things the doughnuts where on are setting in dishwater. By now, it's about 8:45, and you have 15 mins to finish the dishes, sweep and mop the floor, and do the temperatures. ( which you do everyone other hour).
Let's just say, I didn't finish everything last night, and I didn't leave till 9:30. I was sort of yelled at today for staying late. But I'm sorry, I'm not someone who goes and leaves a job unfinished.
*sighs* at least tonight was better. Since I made so much garlic bread last night, I didn't have to make any today, and I only had one cart of cookies to make. So I ran the bread (which means I make sure all the breads our company makes is in stock). I took two cake orders today, and wrote on two more cakes. I think I'm getting better at it. Then I did all the other stuff I mentioned above (do the doughnuts, sweep, do the dishes, etc.) I decided to leave a little early to make up for last night.
I then went to Wal-Mart to get some water for Duo (my fish) since I need to clean his bowl. I noticed as I was walking by that they had oreo's on sale, so I promptly bought two packages. When I got home with them, I was given a lecture on how we don't have very much money, and that we shouldn't be wasting it on stuff we don't need. "A dollar here and there adds up! It's something your mom doesn't understand!" *sighs* appreantly I can't do anything right. Comments (8) |

Yes, that's right folks! As you can tell from my intro, Ed has taken over my site. Today was a pretty interesting day at work. I got stuck talking politics with the guy i was working with. *sighs* Let's just say him and me didn't agree that much on stuff, but I respect his opinions. It took me two hours to package the cookies tonight, there where so many of them. Somehow, we finished early though. *shrugs* I hope everyone has a good sunday. Tell me what you think of the changes. Thanks sis for your help with them! Comments (6) |

I couldn't resist.
I got this from Donnie, who got it from everyone else.
I think that sounds like me.
You are Tidus, the hero of FFX. You show your emotions by how you act and react to certain things. You hide back your tears for the most part, but in an intense situation, you end up losing control.
Today was a pretty interesting day. I woke up this morning, only to find out that I had set my alarm to p.m. instead of a.m. needless to say, I was late for my hair appointment, but thanks to my fast driving skills, it wasn't all that bad. My hair is shorter now, and I can see!! My bangs where getting pretty long.
So I came home, and watched a couple episodes of "Dectective Conan" and some PMK. While watching the show I had a great idea for a greeting, which is currently on it's way of being processed. I think you guys will like it.
Today was my second day at work. It was fun again today. This time I packaged cookies again, and then had to clean out the donut case. you can not believe how tempted I was. And then when I saw the kid's cookies.....it took all my power not to grab one. *sighs* but hey, i got paid today, so now I can buy some anime! yay! (and that rhymed too!)
Oio, Katie! It turns out that series has 26 episodes, and is approximately on 6 or 7 DVDs. The episodes on the second DVD are more plot based, and you get more character backgrounds and stuff. But there is still comedy. I think what I read said that the comedy of the show was what helped it gain the award for "Best Anime Ever". *shrugs*
Staring down the barrel of a .45, lost in the ashes of another life.
I don't know what I like this song so much. Maybe it's the melody or something. *shurgs* anyway, I was trying to go to bed earlier, and found that I just couldn't. I kept thinking about too much.
Tomarrow/today depending on how you look at it. (it's 1 a.m. by the way) is my first official day of work. For those of you who don't know, I got a job working at our local food store. I will be working in the bakery department, which is perfect for me I think, since I love cookies so much. I just have to stop myself from "testing" too many of them. I have training tomarrow, Friday, and Sat. Then on Sunday I have to do it myself. Not much of a learning time eh? Considering I'm only there for 3-4 hours for the training. The bad part is that I have to wear my brother's shirt because I didn't get a chance to buy one yet. And well....it's a little tight. *sighs*
Today I went to "King Arthur" with mom. It was a great movie. Lots of fighting, and cute guys! hehe, there was more to it than that, I just don't want to give anything away. Also, I went to the library, and got the manga version of "Nausicaa of the valley of wind". I have yet to read it, but I think it's a movie, and it's by Miyazaki, so it should be good. Also, I got the first DVD of "Martian Successor Nadesico". What can I say, after watching just 4 episodes, I LOVE it already! It's soo funny! I was laughing so hard that mom came in and yelled at me. I hope I can find some more discs at the library. Either that, or with my first paycheck, I might just have to buy them. ^_^.
Well, I think I'm off to bed for real this time. Wish me luck guys!
P.S. Don't forget to go check out my new wallpapers that got added. I have 5 now! Wohoo!!! Comments (3) |

Got this from Donnie.
You're From Jupiter. This means that you are bound to be very modivated to advance yourself whether it be first in a race or gaining more money, nothing stands in your way when you set your mind to it.
It's a beutiful day in the neighborhood.
Well, hello everyone! I hope you all had a great forth of July weekend, cuz I sure did. Well, first let me get this out of the way. I spent most of last night/this morning working on this wallpaper. I had a completely different picture in mind, but after getting pissed at it, I created this instead. I'm submitting it, but I thought you guys might like a sneak peak. My Alphonse Wallpaper.
I had a great forth of July. I spent it with my "other" family. We went swimming at Uncle Mike's house, and also ate dinner there. The food was absolutely delicious! and the cookies where good also! ^_~! I played in the pool with the little kids for a while, playing a game of "Ride the Amy Shark" with Eric, and "Don't let Timmy Splash us." with Timmy while Eric was on my back. It was great fun. Also, me and Katie spent some time just laying around in the water. We also played Badmitten, although she played more than I did. (You rock Katie!). Then we went over to the grandparents house, where we listened to the jukebox, I introduced Katie to some awesome country songs, and I played Ping Pong with Dana. Then, after eating a some more delicious food, a.k.a. brownie sunday, I played with the Legos, and built a little house, which Steve incoperated into his and Eric's house like structure. I was going to play Darts with Alex, but that didn't go so well.
What can I say? I love my other family. I don't know, maybe it's just built in my that I get along with kids so well. And you know, they even listen to me too! They are so great! And of course, we can't forget the greatest of those kids, my sister! *hugs Katie*
And now it's time to break the mood with a rant: I'm sorry, but I find it very discracefull when I see the flag not at full mast on Independce Day. Alright people, we've had over two weeks now to morn the death of Reagan. Don't get me wrong, I loved him as not only a president but as a person, but we need to move on. I'm sure he would have wanted it the same way too.
I'm sorry, I had to get that out. How did everyone else's days go? and did you have that problem in your area? Also, tell me what you think of my wallpaper. That's all for now! ^_^! Comments (3) |

A messed up quiz.
I tried to take aurus' quiz, but it didn't work. So I took this one instead.
It's interesting what happens when you change one little thing.
I think I'm going to cry.
Well, right now I'm listening to the song "Space Lion" from the Cowboy Bebop soundtrack and looking at this pic.Sad pic. The song is that really sad one where all the little kids are singing...well..nothing really. And the pic is from PMK, episode 14, if you've seen the series, you know which one I'm talking about. The one before the really sad one.
Yesterday officially sucked. I called work to get my schedule, only to find out the manager had no idea who I was. She didn't even know I was coming. My brother says she never checks her box. Which was probably where all my paper work was. *sighs* So now the schedules are already up and I'm not on it. She was suppost to call me back, but either never did, or mom was on the phone when she did. I hope she calls tomarrow, otherwise I'm going to either call back, or go check the damn schedule myself.
Today was a pretty much boring day altogether. I spent most of it either asleep, or watching "Scrapped Princess". I then got tired of that, and decided to make a list of all the shows I had on disk. I found out I was missing episode 25 of FMA! how I don't know. and also, most of the beginning episodes in PMK. I have 1-4, and 9-24, but for some reason I don't have 5-8. *shrugs* I guess looking for them gives me something to do.
I really want to start some new series. (Well, they are new to me). I want to find Chrono Crusade, King of Bandits: Jing, and of course finish Naruto. This might take awhile though.
I hope everyone has a safe and fun Forth of July weekend. Don't forget to wave those flags high, cuz it's not for the fireworks we celebrate this day. It's for our freedom, our foundatation as a country. Go USA! Comments (3) |
