So, today it was officially announced that Dalena is leaving Schrader's. D: Apparently she got offered a job that is a 'once in a lifetime opportunity,' and she would have been crazy to turn it down. It also sounds like she's going to be much happier with her new job; it's definitely more social, and she needs that.

But anyway, Debbie asked me to come to her office for a few minutes last Thursday, and told me that Dalena had put in her two weeks notice that very morning. She remembered me asking for more hours, and gave me the opportunity to go full-time, or as close to it as I can manage. What we're doing is splitting Dalena's position into a few different areas: Diane and Amy are going to do the lotto and the utilities, while I'm going to do retail. All of it. Posting, checking McLane's, and cutting the check to McLane's. Debbie also wants me to take over the ordering of office supplies. xD It's going to be a lot of work, especially with school starting! And I'm not moving to the back full-time, either. Diane and I are still splitting the front desk, in addition to all of this new stuff we're doing.

Speaking of school, here's what my schedule's going to look like:

Monday: Psych I (5:30-6:45)
Tuesday: Yoga (7:00-7:50)
Wednesday: same as Monday
Thursday: same as Tuesday
Friday: no classes

Edit: Yes, I am lame, and decided to drop three of my classes. xD I had a nice talk with my parents about it, and they helped me decide to stay with school, but don't overwork myself.

So, yeah. xD I'm going to need to find a way to get all of my schooling in, plus all of my work at Schrader's. I may cut back on school this semester, because it may all be a little too much. One more semester at Front Range won't hurt, right? Now I just need to decide which classes I want to keep, and which ones I can wait on.

Tomorrow, Dalena is going to show me how to do McLane's and tell me all of the deadlines I'm going to be responsible for. At least I don't have to technically be there until 9. xD But our computer is about to die at the front, so I'm going to bring in my flash drive (if I can even find it), and see about backing up all of our files onto that. Mike Jewell is coming in Wednesday night with a new computer for us; it's just a question of if our current one can last until he transfers everything over from the old one to the new. I guess we'll just have to see!

I also started playing Final Fantasy VIII last night, and I got a little farther today. It's such a fun game! I started flailing in happiness when I got to play as Laguna again. xD And I was totally fangirling at the SEED dance. VIII is such a glorious game!
jupiterhalo: (In her own way)
So, I spent part of my day beating Final Fantasy IX. :D I'm so happy! This is only the second FF game I've played and beaten, so I'm incredibly proud of myself. And I did it with relatively weak characters; I think my highest level character was Vivi, and he was only about level 57 or 58. And the ending made me tear up so badly! I wasn't all and out bawling, like I always do to VIII's ending, but I was really close. xD

So, now I just need to replay VIII, since I'm going to be picking up Laguna. I already made Steiner's journal and had him request to join Ares. Now I'm just waiting for him to be accepted.

And I have no idea why, but I've been on a real Disney kick today. It started with watching clips from Enchanted on YouTube, which led me to find a really well done music video with clips of Sleeping Beauty done to Evanescence's "Bring Me to Life." Kind of a weird combination, but it fit perfectly. xD So I ended up pulling out my DVD of Sleeping Beauty and watched it while I ate dinner.

Bleh, I can't believe that it's already August. That means that I won't be able to spend as many of my days playing video games and watching old movies, when school (once it starts) and work will be taking up all of my time. >_> At least I have Fridays relatively easy.... I don't have class, so that means I just work. :D But even that may be changing, so I don't know. I'll just have to see what happens.

I really want to go travel or something before school starts again, but I don't really have the money to do it. Maybe one weekend I can borrow the car and head down to Denver and shop for a while. That would be fun.

And my room is still messy, even though I've been moved back in for at least a month. xD I need to start cleaning it. I'll do that either tonight or tomorrow.

226- OMFG

Final Fantasy IX rant under the cut! )

I think it's really amusing when people review my stories on ff.net. I haven't updated a story there in two years; most of the ones people review or add to their favorites are ones that incredibly old. I keep getting e-mails about people adding my Sailor Moon stories to their favorites, which cracks me up. xD I wrote those stories about seven years ago, back when I was still into that fandom. But anyway! I had this person leave me this really amusing review about one of my Fushigi Yuugi stories. It was a Hotohori/Miaka fic, and I guess that I had an assassin try to kill Hotohori. xD This person wrote me the review, saying 'I wonder who the assassin was? I bet it was Taka!'

I had to write them back saying that I don't remember too many details about that story; I honestly can't look at any stories/essays/etc. I've written once I'm done. For some reason, I can't stand to read my own work. So I wasn't about to go back and read it to see what I've done. They wrote me another e-mail, asking me if I'd write another Fushigi Yuugi fic. It was pretty amusing, I thought.

And wheee! I had a good review for my job, and I even got a $0.75 raise! It was pretty awesome!

Okay, enough ranting from me. xD; I'm tired.

Oh my goodness! I have totally forgotten how fun playing Final Fantasy is! x3 Especially IX... it is so hilarious. xD I need to play it all the way through, since I'm picking up Steiner in [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com]. And after I play IX, I need to play VIII... since I am also picking up Laguna. xD; Oh, RP! You shall be the death of me... especially since school starts again in, like, a month.

I put together my desk and chair yesterday. It was really fun doing that! I've found that I really like buying furniture and all that, then putting it together. I got some new jersey knit sheets from Target, as well~ x3 So it's been a pretty good weekend thus far! Even though it's almost over.

I just need to go find icons for Steiner, and new icons for Laguna... I had so many on my old laptop! At least Laguna is a more popular character than Steiner is... x3

Okay, this meme took me fricking forever to finish. xD It doesn't look very time-consuming, but I found that it was. Well, I found this on a random person's journal, [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com], if I remember correctly, when I was looking for icons. It is the Top Five Fictional Male Characters meme!

Here are my top five... Not in order! I couldn't decide how I wanted to put them... )

Yay, it seems like my sister and I are going to have dinner together tomorrow! x3 And apparently, her friend is determined to get her drunk tomorrow night. xD; So we'll see how that goes!

Bawww at work and having to be there an hour earlier tomorrow. D:
