    I've got enough groceries in the staff house for a couple of days. My work is trying to figure out a system to ship us up groceries from down south right now (as they provide our grocery bill while we are away at work).

    The building is ruined, and the town was in a mass panic today. It's been pretty stressful, to be honest. There is another store in town, as well as two convenience stores to shop from. However, work pays for our groceries and has no contract with the other stores. We can shop there, but only if we spend our own money.

    I'm in a small community in the eastern arctic, and the food costs here are sizeable (imagine a reality where 2L of OJ costs $21, for example).
    We are all these things [...]. Pride, desire, compassion, cleverness, belligerence, fruitfulness, loyalty...and guilt. But above it all stands love. And if we desire to be more than human, that is the star by which we must set our sights.

    You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.

    “Leaving is not enough. You must stay gone. Train your heart like a dog. Change the locks even on the house he’s never visited. You lucky, lucky girl. You have an apartment just your size. A bathtub full of tea. A heart the size of Arizona, but not nearly so arid. Don’t wish away your cracked past, your crooked toes, your problems are papier mache puppets you made or bought because the vendor at the market was so compelling you just had to have them. You had to have him. And you did. And now you pull down the bridge between your houses, you make him call before he visits, you take a lover for granted, you take a lover who looks at you like maybe you are magic. Make the first bottle you consume in this place a relic. Place it on whatever altar you fashion with a knife and five cranberries. Don’t lose too much weight. Stupid girls are always trying to disappear as revenge. And you are not stupid. You loved a man with more hands than a parade of beggars, and here you stand. Heart like a four-poster bed. Heart like a canvas. Heart leaking something so strong they can smell it in the street.”

    I was able to leave early tonight. It's been raining today and we didn't having many customers come into the restaurant. However, we did get a lot through drive thru. It was crazy. It did get a little busy earlier and we had some craziness, but over all it was a good day.

    Anatomy exam tomorrow. On the heart and vascular, lymphatic, nervous, and endocrine systems.... Plus the potential of old questions being thrown back in from other systems (primarily skeletal and muscular). Just kill me now.

    I also need to get caught up on studying for my infectious diseases course. We're in the part of the course on memorizing specific bacteria, what disease they cause, how they enter the body, and what symptoms they cause when they do.

    Thankfully I am done with one course (finished early) and almost done with another (two assignment left, one of which is to write a eulogy for a family member). And there are no tests to worry about with these two, so that's great.

    Good luck Shahaku!

    Well the Wendy's job was the shortest job I have ever had. I quit yesterday and I hope you all don't think negative of me. Yesterday, it came to a boiling point. I was doing a to go order and a woman asked me for a bag. There was a man waiting and I accidentally threw it at her. I didn't mean to, I wasn't trying to be rude, but she commented that I was rude to through a bag at her. She had been a hard customer asking to fill up her chili all the way up to the lid and get her and her husband extra chili. Anyway, I was trying to help the next customer who was an older man and there was no one behind him, thank the lord and lady, and started to cry. I have never in my life done that, just break out crying in front of a customer. He was kind and told me to take a breath. Which I really appreciated that he understood my situation. So I got his order and thanked him. He was another to go order so I went back to the break room to get myself under control. I was really upset because I really take pride in serving my customers. I did such a good job at Sheetz and I felt so bad when I did made a bad impression. So I was getting myself under control and the manager came in and told me to take a breath. So she tells me that I they have to keep telling me to do things and that I am muttering about others underneath my breath. I'm sorry, but that broke the straw on my back. One, you sent me on the first day to train with someone who had been there for about two to three days. I didn't get any type of training that you would expect. I also didn't get any kind of employee handbook. So how would I know certain things or protocol? So I quit because I could not handle being bullied by someone like that. I now know why they go through employees like toilet tissue. No proper training and no respect.

    We would never think negatively of you for that.

    Though I'll only speak of myself when I say I would never stay in a job that makes me cry lol.

    Customer service is hard, and it can definitely suck at times.



    On a better note, I got 94% on my exam. I decided to take it today, since I had the time. That's part of why I love being online. I have a five day window to take an exam, and there's sooo much flexibility.

    Congrats Shahaku!

    It is hard. I have no problem with it. I think part of why I cried last night was because I have been off my Sertraline for 2 weeks. Sertraline is a depression drug and no one has refilled it for me. I asked for an emergency supply and they won't give me one. So I am going to see if my general physician will fill it for me. If not I will have to wait till I see the psychiatrist in a month.

    That's infuriating. There should never be a lapse in psych meds whenever it's possible to avoid it. It can literally destroy lives. I'm sorry you're experiencing that.




    Right now, I'm working on my husband's eulogy (he's not dead, it's an assignment). I have to center it around a theme, and I'm centering it around his life being a D&D campaign... I'm going to have fun with this one.

    Anubisa, I'm sorry about the Wendy's job. It can be rough. I'm worried for you about the sertraline- suddenly going off can be really hard on you. I know it is a challenge to work around various insurance and health care system problems, but it seems like a priority. Frustrating how that can work. I hope you can find help with it soon.

    It's been a rough couple of weeks for you. I'm not surprised that your emotions caught up with you when you were under pressure. I hope you can spend some time taking care of your self and don't succumb to beating yourself up.

    Re: Whatcha thinking about now? (v2)

    Thanks everyone. I went to the doctor today about a migraine that has lasted for about a week since I have had the sleep study done. The doctor refilled my sertraline for me. I have also sent a message to my general physician about getting a refill done through her as well. I am back on my depression medicine and I am hoping that will get me back to feeling better. As for the job hunt, I am going to get back to it. I get depressed if I don't have a job and don't support myself. I live with my parents and I feel I need to help out by paying some money and now that I have a car I and want to go back to school it's important to have a job. I'm going to be looking for a job that isn't in the food industry for a while. So we'll see what I can find. I'm also thinking about pro blogging. It's an idea that I've been thinking about though.
