Sorry, but I haven't yet shared the information about myself that would typically display here. Check back later to see if that changes, or if I instead choose to remain an enigma.
For the season coming to the busiest part of the year, I find work at Toys to be... somewhat mundane.
Take yesterday for example: the Wii launch. I was even working in the R Zone, where all of the electronics and games are stored. I had one person come up for thier Wii. One. But then again, my shift started at 3, so...
Also, I felt really helpful to this one elderly couple and thier granddaughter. It was like... ten minutes into my shift, and they come up to the register with some things (can't remember what) and I see the granddaughter reading a Pokemon Mysterious Dungeon guide book. After I scan the man's stuff, I say, "Is that Mysterious Dungeon?" She looks a little nervous and nods. "I love that game!" I shout, "I've already beaten it. It's so cool."
Okay. So, the first day of work was 6 to closing, which is technically 10 pm. Technically. After all the customers -who are some of the rudest people in the US- have left, the workers are supposed to finish up whatever reshop, the item that get left behind, and put out the merchandise for the night crew to stock. Not much when it's a normal day. But was this a normal day? Of course not.
Seeing as how half the crew that was supposed to close decided not to show up, we, the floor crew, got to reshop for an hour. AN HOUR. And I could not figure out where the hell this stupid megaman thing went. No other magamen! >_O
I did it! I am now a working woman! *insert maniacal laughter* I make my own money now! No more begging parents for cash! No more bumming off of my sister! No more, I say! If I want a game, I can go out and buy it!
...I give it two weeks before I start bitching about it. -_-
So yeah, Toys accepted me. Though the background check took over a week (>_O) my employer finally called and told me she wanted to offer me a position. It was a nice esteem boost that the first interview I went to, I got hired. Huzzah.
So, orientation's today at 6 and ends when we close. I had to go out to Wal-Mart and buy a shirt and slacks for the uniform. o.0 You'd think everyone over the age of 17 would have a white-collared shirt and some khaki slacks, but no, not Lizzy. -_-
That is all.
I'm in the TCC "Acedemic Learning Center" (aka the Library)and there's a girl at the far end of the line of computers with a stupid rap song playing. The entire library can hear it. Other computer people, including myself, are glancing at her with annoyance. But does she mute the hideous cocophany of evil? No. She lets it play.
ANYWAY, this morining, however short it may presently be, has been filled with tiny little pricks to my anger. I woke up listening to possibly one of the most ridiculous and stereotypical "Kuntry" songs in circulation: "I'm Already There" by Lonestar. And not only do I wake up to this disparaging song, my throat beings to burn and throb. I caught my sister's heavy cold.
Well, today at 2:00, I am schedualed for an interview at Toys R US. Woo hoo. I would be more enthusiastic if I didn't feel as if I were going to collapse at any moment. However, I do have a swirling miasma of anxienty fermenting in my belly. This is, after all, my first job interview.
I don't really know what to expect, since the hiring manager said it would be a "group" interview. Which would be bad, since I don't speak out very much in a group of people I don't know. Hopefully, knowing this, I won't overcompensate and talk too much and make a complete ass of myself.
In other news, I have picked up Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness again. Though the story's long and arduous, and I have a shocking lack of good pokemon to rely on, I keep addictively playing. Damn you, Japan.
I was randomly cruising the fandoms of ff.net's game section, and what do I see? Tetris. And there's 34 fics.
...How the hell do you write a fic about Tetris?
...Why would you WANT to write a fic about Tetris?
So, curiosity gets the best of me, and I click into the fandom. Most of them are humor fics, like "Problems of the Everyday Square" and "Puzzle". This makes sense, seeing as how it's bloody Tetris. Then, I see this: an angst fic.
Yes, angst. In Tetris. Because you know, there's no game filled with more drama and tragedy than TETRIS!
I click on it, since I have a strange obsession with the badly written as of late, and I find the first chapter to be this:
