So guess what I just found out. My former coworker, the co-manager that everyone hated (I'll use her initial 'B'), quit. Yesterday around 1pm I got a call from ADT, the security people, about my former store. I answered the phone so I could tell them that I don't work there anymore. I thought it was an odd time for that kind of call, usually it's in the morning or evening when the store is being opened or closed, but I didn't really give it that much thought.

I got a call today from a former employee and she told me that yesterday B said that there was some emergency and had to close the store early. We've closed maybe an hour or two before normal hours before but that was only if inventory or something was the next morning. We've never closed at 1 in the afternoon. So I don't know what was going on there. But she didn't close down the registers or the store. She must have locked the doors and armed the alarm with her code, otherwise ADT wouldn't have called me, but everything was still running the next morning. The poor guy who has been helping over there had to perform the closing and opening routines this morning. That was yesterday and today I hear she's no longer working for the company.

I don't know what really went down. I have no idea if there was an emergency, though I hear she told different stories to at least 3 people. All I know is that she didn't give her 2 weeks, she closed the store halfway through the day on Sunday, and by today she isn't working there anymore. I also know that there is now NO manager of any kind at that store. It sounds like there are at least 2 people coming from other stores to help out, but I don't know how long they can keep that up.

The two people who are still there from when I worked there want me back. The only problem is that B wasn't the only issue I had with the store. The company is run poorly and honestly, I don't think they're doing very well. Nobody is, but I think other locations are doing better. I figure it's only a matter of time before this one closes. It's something to think about. I got numbers for people, but I'm leaning towards 'no' right now :/

Before work tomorrow, I get to call about a doctor appointment and jury duty. FUN. And I keep having moments of HOLYSHITIMNOTGOINGTOHAVEAJOBORMONEYINLESSTHANTWOWEEKS anxiety and panic. ALSO FUN. Things are strained. Both at home and at work. I was screaming at my mom last night and sobbing. After having already broken down in the bathroom at work. I'd hate to experience a full blown nervous breakdown.

I had to stay an extra 1 1/2 hours at work today. Should've been happy about OT, but when you're already in a fragile frame of mind and you have things planned out and you're ready to leave at a certain time... Plus, my Co 'asked' if I could stay (about 5 minutes before I was to leave) even though nobody else could come in to cover, so really I HAD to stay and she was being... I'm not sure what word I'm looking for here. But she was being very THAT and I might have thrown a little bitch fit and was on the verge of tears. I know it's that time of the month, but that's not normal. Even for me. I don't necessarily mind being crazy, I just don't like not being in control of my emotions/actions. Oh, to be a Vulcan... It's just very tiring being slightly unstable. Unhinged. Where once I was simply not looking forward to work, now I DREAD it. I start to feel physically ill at the thought of having to spend time there especially with certain people.

At least this made me smile (from

Oh, and !!!!!!!!!!

Spoilers for Merlin )

So I'm giving my 2 weeks notice to my manager on Monday (as well as a copy to the DSM and HR, just in case) but I'll be staying until the 30th I think. Technically my last day would be Monday the 25th, but she already has the schedule done up until the end of that week and I'm scheduled have Saturday the 30th off anyway so it would just be for 4 more days. I'm trying to be optimistic about the whole thing. I mean, I didn't want to be there forever anyway. You just get so comfortable in a place and it's scary thinking about moving on. In fact, every time I think about it, I get all anxiety-y. Ooooh, this is gonna suck. But every time I have to talk to the Co-manager, I know that this is the right decision. The next few weeks are going to be uncomfortable... Plus I found a pair of knee-high boots at work that fit over my massive calves and I'm totally buying them. The last thing I'll buy from that store. Better get my discount while I can!

ETA: And while I'm still awake (at 2am), 101010 - HAPPY 42 DAY!
spacemonkeyluvn: (dw:: The Oncoming Storm)
Work was a sucky thing today. Might have thrown a little bitch-fit. Not in front of anyone exactly, but it's getting harder and harder to fake happiness there.

RL is also kind of sucking like a sucking thing right now. *le sigh* Some of it is at least partly my fault, but I just don't know how to stop. I'm having some trouble with depression lately and I find I'm losing interest in most things. Including my friends. I just don't feel connected to anyone any more. I hung out with a friend yesterday and had to fake smiles and laughs. I just didn't want to be there. Conversation was a struggle for me. My sleep/work schedule isn't helping matters. At all. And the fact that my birthday is in a week and a day is just making things worse. Haven't really been speaking to friends (no time or energy, and really, nothing to say) and now feel even worse about being alone. Aaaaand I've been eating such shite lately that I think it's really making me ill.

I'm trying really REALLY hard not to read/see any Doctor Who spoilers. While I'd love to squee and such with fandom, I want to be surprised. I want to keep the magic alive. I want to experience it for the first time when it airs as a completed thing.

Still more than a little in love with Sherlock. Spend all my time online reading fanfic like I haven't done in ages. Fanfic, fanvids, picspams, etc. Lovin' it.

PS I won 1st place in the header contest at [ profile] sherlockland!

spacemonkeyluvn: (dw:: Ten points and laughs at Indy and D)
I'm not exactly sure what's going on, but something that happened a month ago (at work) which I had been told was okay might now be coming back to bite me in the ass. I thought something might come from it so I wrote down who told me it was okay, the authorization code, etc. But it was a month ago, and now I don't know where that info is. I hate feeling like I made a mistake. Especially one that could be important. And now I'm going to be constantly thinking about it and hoping everything is okay. My dad, stepmom, and sister are coming over for Easter brunch tomorrow and I just hope I can enjoy it and not spend all my time dwelling on this. That and this whole possibly overpaid by disability which I might have to pay back crap. Ugh. Can I just not deal with people? Ever.

I really need to get out of retail.

And even though I haven't even posted this entry yet-

ETA: At least Doctor Who was fun. I'm excited to see more of Eleven :D Then again, I wasn't the biggest Ten fan, so I'm not feeling the butthurt that many others are. Like how I felt with Torchwood: Children of Earth. I'm still butthurt over that. I will miss the Tennant!Doctor and Simm!Master interaction though. But I'm ready for a change and Eleven has entertained me thus far.

Cut for emo. Again. )

Ya know what? Screw that. Life's not all that bad knowing that these boys exist and are adorkable )

Also, via Twitter: @joejonas Congrats @NickJonas with #WhoIam Coming out today! You are talented,smart,dreamy.. I love you. I'm Proud of you.

♥♥♥♥♥♥ x infinity

White Collar is definitely a happy place right now. Peter/Elizabeth is one of my favorite canon couples and Peter/Neal is just precious beyond belief.

House was also good the other night. House and Wilson being on the same side was nice and the world could always use more Mr. Sprinkles.

And for the record, I'm feeling MUCH better by the time I'm posting this (~3 hours after I started). In fact, I almost want to delete the top part, but I'll leave it.

Okay, last postscript I swear. I got my preordered Nick Jonas CD today! Won't be able to properly listen to it until Friday, most likely, but I have it ;)
spacemonkeyluvn: (dw:: can you hear it?)
I had to work this morning even though it was supposed to be my day off. And I'll be working the rest of the week, New Year's Eve and Day included. Ugh. So Tired. And not feeling well (possible UTI). Plus, it's never really a picnic at home either. I could really do with like a week off in a row. And not just because I'm recovering from surgery. I should shower, but I don't want to get out of bed. It's not even 6pm and I'm ready to fall asleep. Except for the fact that my mother is playing Rock Band.

I saw some old high school friends the other day. We all had brunch together. It was nice to see them again, but it felt like that scene in Friends where I ordered one of the cheapest items because I'm poor, but we all ended up splitting the bill evenly. I wanted to say something, but we only do this like once a year, so I let it slide. Plus tip, I ended up spending about $22 for a waffle. It was a nice place, but fuck that. Next time, let's meet at IHOP or Denny's.

Doctor/Master audio clip from 'The End of Time, Part 2'. Is it Friday yet?! I don't know if I can take all this. I haven't really been talking about TV, even though I've been watching it, but I quite enjoyed 'The End of Time, Part 1.' It was cracky and ridiculous, but it worked. It's darker than normal, but give me Master/Doctor and I'm good with just about anything. I'm easy like that. I'm scared for Friday though. We already know how it ends, sort of, and I'm not sure I'm ready to see/experience that. I've already watched Part 1 at least twice, which is rare for me, so close together. Lately, the only thing I've been rewatching is White Collar. I also rewatched the latest ep of House because I'm craving the Holmes/Watson & House/Wilson dynamic ♥

Random bit: I noticed it while watching it the first time, but I really love the soundtrack to Sherlock Holmes.

Also, not my proudest moment, but this made me LOL: from

Okay, this entry is all over the place and making little sense. I think it's time for a shower and nap.
spacemonkeyluvn: (toma:: Tomapi xmas)

They were performing this. Now they just need to perform this again. At least that opening bit ;) Or even this.

On a slightly related topic, I really need to rewatch both Maou and Coffee Prince. The first because holy crap, I love that show (spoilers for the finale), and the second because (as I've said before) a Gong Yoo in love is one of the most adorable things in existence.

Oh, and my boss gave me a $50 Target gift card for Christmas <3 A bunch of us from work went out to eat dinner tonight. The food was meh, but it was a nice time.
spacemonkeyluvn: (jonas:: Joe approved)
Today was a good day. Apparently some cute guy checked me out/flirted with me today at work. However, I had no idea because I'm clueless like that. He bought a gift card, and after he left my boss was like "That guy was totally checking you out." And I made this face 0_0 She said she saw him looking at me and he noticed her looking at him (looking at me). She said she was telling me in her head "Look up. Smile." But like I said, I'm clueless in that area. When I helped him out though, I did notice that he was kind of cute. And then at Starbucks, after work, the lady taking my order called me 'beautiful' which made me :)

Also, I got out of work 2 hours earlier than originally scheduled; I had a delicious meal with my boss; I have a peppermint mocha from Starbucks; the company who owns the store I work at gave everyone a $20 VISA gift card; we're closing earlier than planned on Christmas Eve; it's almost Christmas; my dad, stepmom, and sister are coming over for Christmas Eve dinner and we're going to be watching their dog, Willy, while they're in DC (xmas to new years); I have Monday off (after having worked 7 days in a row this week); I have new Merlin and Never Mind the Buzzcocks to watch; I finally finished One Fine Day and I absolutely loved it; I'm going to be getting a new phone soon (which is good because the other day mine did some weird countdown thing and then turned itself off); I finally named my laptop Nakatsu; and there's more, but I'm too hyped up on caffeine and sugar to think properly.

If you guys really want to get me something, #1 on my Christmas list:

Also, I just sent out my Christmas cards. I've been a little distracted by RL, and I'm sorry if you get them after Christmas. But if you asked for one, you're getting one!
spacemonkeyluvn: (dn:: Ryuk)
Today, well technically yesterday now, was a really shitty day and left me hating retail, people in general, and myself more than a little bit. I just... argh. Not in a good place right now.

I love Halloween, but I'm not really feeling it this year. I have to work, but we can't dress up. Not that I really had anything planned, but still. And then this had to happen. I really wish I didn't have to work tomorrow so I could just crawl into bed and not have to worry about anything.

Anyway, this is a depressing entry and I don't want to make it any longer than I already have.

White Collar was good though and made me forget for at least an hour.
