Got one of the plankton jobs

I start at the DQ/Orange Julius in the mall on Monday. It's not my dream job, but it is a paycheck with opportunities to advance. The most important thing about it is that it will help us pay our bills and make it possible for me to go back to school in the Spring. I am still going to apply other places, in case it doesn't work out or in case a better opportunity comes along. I don't want a better opportunity to get away from me.

It's only 7:21pm, and I am dead tired. I have reached the point that I can't even think, so I am just sitting here watching "Ros na RĂșn" on TG4 WebTV.

In the Dark, No Escape

I am tired beyond words, and frustrated beyond even primal grunting. My head hurts. And yet, I don't really want to complain. I want to fix this. That's the story of my life, always trying to fix everything.

I have some applications for bottom-of-the-foodchain jobs. The application from Dairy Queen in the mall basically just wants to know if I have a name and a pulse, while the application from the Hallmark store is so long that I am wondering if working there requires some sort of government clearance. I may try applying for some jobs a couple of links up on the foodchain, but I am pretty sure I am the plankton and those jobs are for fish.

Tonight, though, I am not going to think about it. Right now, I am going to brush my teeth, wash my face, and go to sleep.
