I know, I haven’t posted anything in almost a week. So sorry! A mixture of stress at work and a mini get-away has kept me away from you guys. Which shall I talk about first..? Hmmm… Lets get the work-stress out of the way..
I work at a certain world-wide popular pizza place. I’m not going to say which one, but yeah, pizza. I usually work mornings, because it’s less chaotic, stressful, noisy, etc. I was scheduled to work to close a few nights ago.. our ordering system went down and when it came back up – BOOM – dozens of orders waiting to be made. I was running around, making everything as fast as I could, while making sure the quality of each pizza was on-point. I made a few mistakes, not surprisingly since I was panicking and overwhelmed. Well, once the rush died down, the shift-lead stormed up to me, “Not trying to be mean, but do you have hearing problems?” What? I’m not going to quote everything he said, but yeah, as you can see, he was rude to me. I did my best but I got bitched at anyways. Excuse my french. On top of that, I’ve been working there for three months now, and I’m half-trained. I haven’t helped a single customer. Because why? Because no one has trained me to. I don’t know how to answer telephone calls or use the register to take orders. I’ve told several people about this but no one seems to care. So yeah. Good to know they care about their employees being well-trained.
Lets talk about my mini vaction.. aahh yes, it was such a nice break after that night of disaster. Oh, did I mention the rude shift-leader made me cry after that? Yeah, that’s nice… anyywaayss… Over the weekend, my boyfriend brought up the topic of doing something special. He mentioned there was a lake about 30 minutes away. I looked into it Sunday evening, and that night we got all the food we needed for the trip. Monday morning, we borrowed a nice three room tent and a couple chairs from his grandparents (gosh, they’re so nice), and we went on our way to the lake! As you can tell, it was a very sudden trip, but it was just for a day. It was our first time going out of town on our own, so that was definitely a fun adventure in itself. As you can imagine, the camp grounds were pretty empty. Everyone already left from the weekend. We decided on a pretty good spot, right next to the lake, with plenty of privacy (plus no one else was camping anywhere around us). It took over an hour to set up the tent. We both had no idea what we were doing, but my man got the hang of it after a little while. Once we got settled we went for a swim in the lake. Which I think wasn’t a designated swimming area. Oops. We had sandwiches after that, and for dinner we got a fire going (well, mostly me) and cooked some weenies and s’mores. Yep, it was a pretty lazy, relaxing day. One that Adam (my boyfriend) and I have talked about having dozens of time before we were together.. Previously we were dating on the internet for.. 7 years. Just this past year has been our first together. Its been hard for both of us, but times where we just get to spend it together, no worries or stress, makes everything worth it. Here’s some pictures from our trip. Not very exciting pictures, but I wanted some kind of memento.
P.S. My face got sun-burnt pretty bad, so I won’t be doing any makeup looks for a few days at least.. I have a few looks stocked-up in my wonderful computer files, so I’ll have those for you guys!
