Things I Currently Hate

I've been in a grumpy mood lately so I figured I would post about things I currently hate at the moment.
And of course, in lovely bullet format. :)

  • Minnesota drivers. If you are merging onto the freeway where everyone is doing 65+, use the fucking acceleration lane for it's intended purpose....to fucking get to the speed limit so we don't have to slam on our brakes while you mozy on in at a 40 MPH pace...assholes.
  • Hotel guests...or wanna be guests. I live in Minneapolis. It's a huge city. Therefore, there are tons of things to do in the summer time, such as Mall of America, Minnesota Twins baseball games, car shows, fairs, conventions, etc. I can't help it that you thought you would take a spontaneous 8-hour trip from Chicago and not plan ahead where you are going to sleep. Don't get pissed off at me and call me a bitch when I tell you we are sold out. Plan better next time...assholes.
  • Nursing program directors. Orientation was last week. We were supposed to receive our scrubs, our badge, a student handbook, and other various things. We did not receive one of those items. The handbook was not ready due to lazy lawyers, can't get our badge without scrubs, and can't get the scrubs because at last minute, the program directors decided to add a stupid patch, in which increases the cost of the scrub tops by $7. Yes, $7 to sew on a patch per scrub top...assholes.
  • My apartment managers. Rent is increasing yet again which I think is bullshit. No added features, no bonuses, same ammenities...assholes.
  • My car. Flo is turning into a piece of shit. Every month something else goes wrong and I have to put more money into it. First is was the fuel pump, then the alternator, then the battery, just recently the spark plugs, and I'm pretty sure I need a new starter now. I guess you can't trust your friend's husband that is a mechanic to even be honest with you about the car...asshole.
  • All of the new people my assistant manager hired before quitting. They don't have a brain in their head. It is almost impossible to train them which is my lucky job now that I'm the assistant manager. Thanks a fucking lot...asshole.
From this list, it looks like I hate a lot of assholes. 
Oh well.
I'm off to another full day of work...dealing with assholes!

Feeling overwhelmed

Classes do not start until August 26th, but I'm feeling overwhelmed.
I've been looking for a digital way of keeping track of everything and after turning to Twitter, Google Calendar won the vote.
So I set out to upload my whole first semester schedule into Google Calendar. When I finished, I saw this:


Yeah...
I'm completely overwhelmed right now!

Promotion!


Last month, our assistant manager at work resigned and moved away. 
Since then, it has been hectic at work because all of the responsibility was on the shoulders of the general manager. 
Her and the new owner sat down and had a discussion and I guess the discussion was about me and possibly promoting me. 
After a back and forth with the owner regarding pay, we finally agreed on a fair number and I was promoted! 
I'm really excited and the general manager is willing to work around my school schedule. 
Yay!

20 Things

So I haven't done one of these in awhile, and I've made some awesome new blogging besties, so I figured I would do another one of these.

So without further ado, here's 20 things about me that you might not have known.


  1. I'm the oldest of 4 children from my mother. I'm 31, my brother is 29, and I have younger twin sisters who are almost 26. 
  2. I love everything Disney. 
  3. I seem to get along with males better than females. I have female friends, but my real besties are all guys. 
  4. When I was younger, I always wanted to be a nurse. I gave up on the dream when I reached 20-21 years old because life got in the way, but last year I made the decision to my dream a reality. I got accepted into the nursing program starting in August and so excited! 
  5. I'm addicted to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest. Add me if you'd like! I love making new friends. :)
  6. I cannot stand the word MOIST! Blech! 
  7. I am OBSESSED with wallets, purses, and Tumbler cups. My husband rolls his eyes at me every time we go to a store and I pass all of the purses/wallets. He's tired of all of my Tumbler cups as well. 
  8. I love the theater. I haven't gone in years and need to make it happen! 
  9. I'm addicted to tattoos. I'm currently working on a sleeve. It's going by slowly, but I'm getting there. My next tattoo will be for my niece and nephews. 
  10. I have the worst temper! It's a weakness of mine and it's an every day battle to tame the bitch. 
  11. I have Celiac's disease. I'm on an every day battle of trying to not upset my innerds. 
  12. I grew up in Ohio, moved to Alaska and lived there for 12 years, then moved to Minnesota a few years ago. I'm not sure if I want to settle down in Minnesota or not...we'll see. I'm very nomadic. 
  13. I have a weird obsession with T-Rex's.
     

  14. I love Sharpies. 
  15. I have Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. 
  16. I just got a promotion at work the other day. I'm a manager now! The general manager is nice enough to work around my school schedule and doesn't expect me to put in 40 hours which is nice. The assistant manager quit and the GM needs an extra set of hands until they find a perfect candidate...in the next year. 
  17. My favorite thing to do is to draw a bubble bath, turn on my music, and drink a beer. It's where I go to reflect and de-stress on all of the day's crap. 
  18. I am the most sarcastic person you'll ever meet. It WILL be the death of me. 

   19. I cannot stand spiders!!!!! At all.
   20. This guy is my everything.

Much needed update...and fantastic news!

It's been an extremely busy time for me as of late.
I have been busy working my ass off, working on my Summer Bucket List, and trying to sleep. More importantly, I'm getting things together FOR NURSING SCHOOL!!!

THAT'S RIGHT FOLKS....MY NUMBER CAME UP!!! 

I GOT ACCEPTED INTO THE FALL COHORT OF THE NURSING PROGRAM! 


I am so unbelievably excited to starting nursing school, but I want to fucking throw up all over the place just thinking about the hard work and knowing I'm going to want to pull out all of my hair.
Ugh!

I've had to get all of my immunizations, find an acceptable stethoscope, get all the other crap such as hemostats, scissors, analog watch, white shoes, CPR classes, ordering of the ugly school scrubs, etc.
Orientation is on Wednesday...I'm so nervous.

Other than all of that, things on the home front have been somewhat stressful. Been fighting with Aaron and it sucks. He thinks I'm up to funny stuff because I'm going to movies with friends, or meeting an old co-worker for coffee or dinner when he gets off work from his new job.
Aaron has met all of the people I hang out with and I don't know why after 12 years of knowing I have more male friends than female, he has a problem.
Lately he just wants to sit at home and play video games. I've invited him to coffee, dinner, and movies with friends from work, but he declines....every single time.
He has also said some extremely hurtful things the past few weeks. Especially after my cancer scare (more on that in another post). He just hasn't been supportive of me or anything I've done in a long time. I'm pretty lonely.
I think most of it has to do with being so disconnected. Aaron and I have been working opposite shifts for months now, only getting a day off together each week, and going to bed at different times. Hoping to get some time together and reconnect soon. I do miss him terribly.

Another bit of news is our assistant manager at my work quit and went to a different company. They offered me the job, but get this....THEY ONLY OFFERED ME A FUCKING DOLLAR RAISE.

Hell to the no.

I already do so much for the company and I'll be damned I'm going to get even more work and make a dollar more. Not when the old assistant was making 4k a month....Pft.

Anyway, I'll keep you all posted. I need to get some sleep after working over night shift. I'm so tired!!!!
