So it looks as though this job selling RC helicopters didn't work out so well. I've been "benched" because I wasn't able to sell enough of them but I ask you; how does one sell over 100 helicopters in a single day when they've been placed in a holiday store that no one knows is in this mall, in a mall that is quickly going out of business because it doesn't hold the traffic, where 7 of the 10 food court restaurants have gone out of business(including Burger King!)and even a Hot Topic can't stay and is having a Store Closing sale?

Exactly, you can't.

So I'm on the hunt for a new job again... I haven't been "officially" laid off, but it's pretty obvious that they won't be asking me to come back to work. I need a nice office job, something filled with lots of paperwork, cause I'm really good at that. ^^

Aside from minor job woes, things still go splendidly. The hubby and roomy both have actually ASKED me to quit this job in order to find a better one, so I'd say it's all good right now. I made a batch of my Great Great Gramma Morrill's Molasses Crinkles and they turned out really yummy. They aren't as yummy as the ones me and Amy made when I was at her house, but they're close. I think it's because I didn't have a choice of Molasses at my store, so it was lighter than the super dark stuff Amy bought. I also did a half batch and that always messes with the cookie taste a little bit.

I started a hat for mom out of awesome Merisoft merino in a lovely purple colorway. I hope she likes it!

Aside from that, there is no Xmas tree here or lights up. We're still "moving in" which means we've got boxes lying around still. I am assured that next year we're gonna do everything up all Xmas-y and stuff.. we'll see. =)

That's kinda it for now. I shall update accordingly! Honestly, it's pretty spectacular that I've made this many posts!

Yup, the holidays are here! At least, they are in the retail sector as I'm sure you've noticed. The Xmas decorations are up, the Hickory Farms kiosk is now open and I've been bumped up to working 5 days a week. It's great because that means more money for me but it's also the end to my lazy days at home doing absolutely nothing. =P Sadness.

But more money means bills get payed and it's always great to pay the bills right? Especially since I now have a new bill because my student loans have to be repaid due to non-attendance. Damn that non-resident tuition!

Irvine Valley College Tuition (4-year college)
Non-Resident CA: $243 per credit
Resident CA: $26 per credit

I kid you not! It's way cheap to go to school here, I just have to gain residency. Come next August I am SO back in school and getting that Japanese degree. =D I can't wait!

So I logged on today thinking "This would be a good time to make another entry!" and low and behold, the theme I chose changed and now looks very bad. X.X So after I post this I'm going to fix it and choose a new one (which is too bad because I REALLY liked the old one!)

I got a job! Huzzah! You know those people flying little toy copters in the malls? That's me! Of course, my copters are 1337 compared to the other ones. Technically, I work for a toy company that sends reps out to demo their toys. That's what I do. But our company has exclusive contracts and right now I work at a Brookstone. If they're selling it at Brookstone you KNOW it's quality, right?

It's a fun job, probably the funnest I've ever had! Ok, so cake decorating is the funnest, but this one is a close second for sure. It's hard in it's own right, I'm standing all day and yelling at people to "Hey, check this out! Isn't it cool?" but that isn't exactly strenuous... except on my throat. I tend not to have a voice at the end of the day. But that's ok, cause it's a friggin AWESOME job! I have fun, get paid hourly AND get commission off of every copter sold the day I work. 3 days a week works out to the same as working 5! Awesome...

Anywho, time to go change the background... oh yah. Nobody has this page. Who should get it? I know one or two people for sure... 3 actually. You guys will hear about this soon, I promise!

...Mostly because I often start things that I don't finish. That's not to say that I don't INTEND to follow through with this, just that it may not come to fruition. This is intended to replace my Facebook account so I have a place to speak freely, share neato things and not be harassed, flamed or generally annoyed by those I don't wish to speak to. So to you who got this URL from me, HUZZAH! You have been considered a true friend or, at the very least, a reasonable person (which isn't that bad in my opinion as reasonable people are very hard to find).
