So work finally ended at 5:30. I ended the day with 5 additional lines added bringing me to 6 total and over my monthly goal of 5. This means I can relax on that goal and focus on Calls per Hour, Quality and other things like transfer rate, feature revenue and accessory revenue.

Went to El Caz with Ann and Josh after work, and then after dinner we went over to their house and watched Exodus Decoded on DVD. It was interesting but still left a LOT of questions unanswered and it provided some interesting discussion afterwards.

Came home and started cooking some tuna helper so I'd have something to eat at work tomorrow on lunch.

I need to check over my shift bid rankings one last time tomorrow before noon. That's the deadline for any changes to the preferences, hopefully I'll know what my new schedule is by the end of the week. Especially since the new schedules are supposed to start in February.

Well I didn't sleep very well last night, so I'm off to go put the food in my rubbermaid food storage containers and then get to bed. If I don't post from work tomorrow, I will very likely be posting from Mom's tomorrow night before I go to sleep.

Didn't do a whole lot... slept in til 11am which was kinda nice (even with the x-men themed dream I had last night).

Was going to go out to dinner with my best friend tonight but due to a ton of homework she had due tomorrow, we've made plans for Sunday night instead.

Am going to be going to Salina on Tuesday. Mom is taking me shopping for a Rice cooker/Veggie Steamer as my birthday present. Yay for new kitchen toys! :)

Emailed my dad back tonight letting him know my address and phone numbers (both cell and landline).

Also did a couple of loads of dishes and made a smaller batch of the Almond Poppyseed bread I tried to make the other night. The first attempt the other night failed miserably. I will know in the morning if this batch turns out ok. I'm hoping so because it sure would make a great breakfast bread.

I still have not finished ranking my shift preferences. There's 126 shifts for us to rank! I do have the top 25 or so done. Am pondering just leaving it at that... I'm ranked 38/194 and there's enough shifts in the top 25 schedules that I'd definitely get one of my preferred shifts... I'll probably work on it some more between calls tomorrow though.

Checked my comission today... in just the 2 days I've worked this month, I'm already at $52. Hopefully I will see another $5-600 month by the 31st.

Well, I guess I'd better get to bed if I have any hope of waking up to the alarm in the morning.

Well, seeing how it's January 1st already and 2007 is already underway, I figure I should probably post my year in review or something.

January - Got fired from Lock\Line on January 2nd. Turned 26 on January 4th, and started what was going to be about 6 months of job hunting. Also applied for and won unemployment claim and that helped get me through the first few months. Also started walking regularly (every day) with Mom.

February - Was still getting the $239/wk from unemployment, apparantly never posted to LJ the entire month. Both of my little sisters had birthdays (one turned 8 the other turned 20). Still job hunting.

March - Got a letter that Lock\Line was going to be appealing the unemployment. Still job hunting. THe appeal hearing was deferred as a continuance had been filed by Lock\Line so the hearing ended up taking place on March 30th. I continued to receive unemployment pay in the meantime which helped keep me afloat. The appeal hearing took place and didn't go well at all, but I didn't find out the results until April.

April - Got notice of having the unemployment decision being reversed and that I'd have to start repaying it. Still unemployed, but at the end of the month had a phone interview with Alltel for my current job now.

May - Had in-person interview at Alltel. Felt pretty good about the interview when I got home. A few days later, got a job offer from Alltel *pending background check*. The same day I did the drug test, I also interviewed for another position in Manhattan, KS for a lower paying job and did a drug test for them as well and was offered that job immediately, I postponed that offer until I had more concrete news from Alltel's background check news. Spent a lot of time driving between Salina and Manhattan. Cashed in the profit sharing account from Lock\Line also. Was then offered the job at alltel on the 11th and started apartment hunting. Ended up taking over my best friend's sister's old apartment. Had a scare with U-Haul but it worked out and was well on my way to getting moved to Manhattan.

June - Moved to Manhattan, KS. Started my new job on the 5th of June. Met and had lunch with [ profile] mizdandylynn and [ profile] hubs. That was lots of fun! Got incredibly drunk (only once) at my best friend's house. Ran into my ex at Wal-Mart. Started having more of a social life while hanging out at my best friend's house.

July - Finished training at the new job and started working my new schedule of 10am - 7pm every day except tues/wed. Also had an eye exam and got new glasses. Towards the end of the month, I bought a new Kyocera Strobe phone and Bluetooth headset to use on my employee cell phone account.

August - Little brother turned 22. Nothing too exciting other than a great month comission wise at work and shift bid for new schedule effective in September.

September - Started my new 9am - 6pm schedule with Thursdays and Saturdays off. Replaced my Palm Tungsten E with a Palm T|X and gave the Tungsten E to Mom. Was also reminded again that mom *does* read my Livejournal (*laughs*). My nephew was born. Had Privacy Manager set up on my landline due to a harassing caller. Switched with the girl sitting across from me as she needed a 9-6 schedule and started working 8:30am - 5:30 pm with Tuesdays and Saturdays off. Got the new Weird Al CD for me and a copy for my baby sister.

October - Brought my 8 yr old sister to Manhattan for one weekend and went to see Open Season with her as well as a trip to Sunset Zoo the next day. Was supposed to go see Hamlet on campus at the theater but that didn't work out. Mom came up to Manhattan to see the new apartment. Entertained myself for an entire weekend at work making sure one lady's cell phone was still Non Pay Disconnect status until her $3000+ payment cleared and posted to her account.

November - Apparantly I didn't post at all again for November... But.. I got a new car! 2002 Dodge Stratus R\T. other rocking month for comission sales. :) I also started a written budget and worked on getting caught up on past due credit card payments and cut up all my credit cards. Working on digging my way out of debt.

December - First part of December was rather uneventful... work, come home, sleep, repeat. Did lots of Overtime the first part of the month to make up for being on vacation the last week. Ended up getting caught up on ALL my bills!!! :) Had vacation from the 22nd through the end of the year so I spent Christmas at Mom's and came home with a new bread machine. :) The Almond Poppy bread I tried to make last night didn't turn out so well. I think next time I am going to make the smaller batch and see how that does.

And that brings me to today I guess, *laughs*. I need to run by the Landlord's office and drop off rent check. Tomorrow it's back to work. I'm usually off on Tuesdays, but I swapped with someone who needed tomorrow off and in return I have Thursday off so I won't have to work on my Birthday this year. (I didn't have to work on my birthday last year either but that was entirely different circumstances haha). So yeah, work tomorrow and Wednesday, off Thursday, work Friday, off Saturday and then it's back to normal schedule. There should be a shift bid this month so schedule is going to change in February. Hoping to get one of the later shifts so I can get shift differential. We'll see how that goes and how many of those shifts are available.

I need to work on my 2007 goals still, and hopefully will have a chance to post them today or at least in the very very near future. For now though, I need to get dressed and go run a couple of errands.

Firstly, Happy Belated Birthday to [ profile] vulpine137!

Secondly, this:

is SOOO going up at my cube at work, hehe. I'm probably going to order it on a T-Shirt and coffee mug too. *grins*

Work was ok today. Slow on sales and lots of long calls but I got through it. It's been a rather slow month for sales overall, hopefully that starts picking up again soon. It should since Christmas is just a couple months away. People will be buying new phones and accessories I'm betting.

Last weekend Mom came up to visit on Saturday. We went out to a place called Pilsbury Crossing just outside of Manhattan and took some pictures of the scenery, my little sister, the dogs, etc... It was fun. :) Lots of great pictures. I'll have to get them uploaded to the website from the ones Mom and I took.

Afterwards, we went over to one of Mom's friends (also a supervisor at Alltel) and had a very yummy dinner of Chicken Parmesan, and also watched Click. Was an ok movie, it had its moments, but was rather predictable. Ended up missing out on the KSU-Nebraska game, but after hearing the final score on the way home, I am sorta glad I did.

Ann came over last night, she tried calling my old cell phone but I hardly ever answer that one because I use the one I get from work as my main line now since I get such a great deal on it. Friday night after work I'm going with her to see Hamlet at McCain Auditorium here on K-State's Campus. Should be fun. I haven't really gotten to spend time with Ann at all since I started working.

Stopped at the store on the way home tonight and picked up some photo mailers so I can finally get the pictures I printed of the zoo trip earlier this month mailed out to my little brother. Gonna get the mailer addressed tonight and stop again on the way home to pay for the postage tomorrow night.

So um yeah about 2 o'clock earlier this afternoon, my friend Ann dropped by and we went down to Aggieville (kinda like downtown) and she had lunch while I had a brownie and some iced tea since I had already had lunch. After that we ran a couple of errands and then this evening went to have chinese food and hung out a couple different places. Watched both parts of the first episode of Brisco County Jr and then watched a movie called Volcano High. Finally decided that 1:30am was just a bit too late to be out and about so I came home and caught up on LJ and posted a couple of comments.

I think tomorrow I am going to try to get some more unpacking done. Maybe I will finally get my books onto the book case where they belong. Just a shame my book and dvd collections aren't near as extensive as I'd like them to be, but that's something I should be able to start changing in about a month once I get paid a few more times and have a little extra money for spending on me. :)

Need to go get laundry soap and quarters tomorrow so I can do a couple loads of laundry and have clean clothes to wear to work next week. I get paid on Friday, so that will help a lot since I'll be low on groceries by then. Hooray for starting a new job in the middle of a pay period. My 2nd check will be rent and probably one or two other bills and then my budget should finally be right on track since my 2nd check will be for 2 full weeks instead of 1 week like this coming friday's check will be.

I think I am gonna go try to get some sleep and hopefully not wake up at 6:30am like I did this morning. At least I was able to go back to sleep until 9... All last week I kept waking up between 6:15 and 6:30am even though the alarm wasn't set to go off until 6:45. I hate waking up before the alarm like that, and even more so hate waking up that early when the alarm isn't even set at all.

Leaving soon to go meet up with [ profile] chuck_lynn and [ profile] hubs for lunch as they pass through Manhattan on their way to Abilene.

Played a little bit of AO and got in a really good team. The joys of being a crat are that it doesn't matter if you are much lower than everyone else on the team, they still want you along for the xp bonuses. :) So I managed to get 4 levels in an hour. Helping my org after lunch today with a raid, hopefully it goes well.

Ok, I'm off for now to finish getting ready then leave.
krzy: (bedtime!)
About 8 o'clock, my friend Ann called and asked what I was doing. I was getting ready to play some Anarchy Online but she asked if I wanted to go get something to drink, and that sounded like fun. So I logged out of game, and went over to her house where soon after another of her friends showed up and off we went to a mexican restaurant where he ate and Ann and I just had virgin pina coladas and we chatted. After we were done there, we headed over to Hastings and Ann bought The Boondock Saints and we went back to her place to watch it. I liked it. Once I get paid I think I will be adding it to my DVD collection. :)

And now I think it is soon to be bedtime. Sometime tomorrow am supposed to meet up with [ profile] chuck_lynn for a drink before they head further west towards Abilene. Should be lots of fun! :)

(wow, look at me having a life!)
