Deadbeat NO MORE!


So tonight is school eve.

If that makes sense give me a, "Whoot Whoot!"

Today was just a great day because of what tomorrow brings.

Vainly enough that sounds inspirational.

My workplace is receiving renovations so we had to move out into a small kiosk (which by the way is one of my favorite words). This was an interesting shift due to the lack of space and hostility of my fellow coworkers. For those of you who have seen my apartment you will testify to my neatness. I am self diagnosed OCD. I really like things neat and organized. So with the NEW kiosk freshly built I felt the need to implement as much organization as possible. Needless to say that was not the idea that everyone else had. It was a rough day, but went surprisingly fast.

Now, today is Sunday so I wanted to hit up the grocery store before school starts tomorrow. Every grocery store to my knowledge closes at 6pm on Sunday's. I didn't get off work till 5:34. So, I race home and jump into my car, which is playing this mind game of sorts with me lately where it doesn't start the first time and then it does the second just to make me appreciate it. After my usual second attempt I drive to the grocery store and shop as quick as I can hoping that the store wont close on me. I get up to the counter and pile everything on and apologize for coming in so close to them closing. The cashier laughs at me and replies, "we don't close till 8."  I now know that I have plenty of time to grocery shop on Sundays.

I came home and spent the evening cleaning and preparing for school tomorrow. I have a Hulk lunch bag, it grows to twice it size when it gets angry. So plenty of room for food. Speaking of the Hulk, I never understood why his pants no matter what they were always turned purple. I mean all he did was grow in mass and turn green, which I guess if it happens to you your clothes will automatically turn the color that contrasts your skin the best.

Emma Stone is my new celeb crush. Easy A is amazing and she is a babe. Movie reviews by Wayne.


School starts tomorrow! Imma get some sleep because, I've got a love and I know that its all mine.

Peace abyss.

Sometimes I feel like a Priest . . .

Man Oh Man,

11 days since my last post! Sorry Abyss, I have been super busy, as per always. I am going to do my best to at least (the stress on least) have an entry a week. That's my goal. So here we go...

I love my day job, I say that in the most sincere way possible. I really do love it. The people whom I have to service however I do not enjoy. The last few days for me have been more painstaking than usual. I have had the most difficult customers I think I have ever dealt with. It is awful how people think they have the right to treat you like crap because you are a young person and are working. Personally, those are rather illegitimate excuses to have it out for someone, especially someone who's generation are the people who are going to be changing your diapers and writing your prescriptions.

Just food for thought.

I understand that it is a two way street, for all those devil's advocates out there reading this. Let me assure you I could have been more nice, but when you offend me I get defensive. So again, reiterating the two way street; I will be nice to you if you are nice to me. I always do my best to be a positive person when it comes to customer service because you are the face of the company you represent, so I strive to be pleasant to deal with.

In all  honesty though, sometimes I actually feel like a priest.

Which was not part of my job listing.

Today, a man came in with his father (no pun intended) and felt the need to disclose how much money the man was making and how many Master Degrees he had and ranted on and on about his life in general and how phones are designed badly because the end call button is also the power off button. After explaining that I myself could not call up Samsung and tell them that their, and the rest of the companies, cellphone designs are ridiculous for people with 5 Masters Degrees to understand I was actually considering telling him to also do a few "Hail Mary" --s before he left. I am all for listening to some people ramble sometimes, but my store is the busiest in our region and there were other people waiting. It is hard to keep the pleasantries up at that rate.

I mean of course this is customer service and I know there will be the random crazies, but alas I get frustrated easily when things aren't compliant to the over all situation, probably due to my organization needs. I am hoping for a more productive day tomorrow.

Audition update: Nothing yet. I have been enlisted to participate in a show for one night only in attempts  to raise money for a young girl who is dying of cancer. A cause I am very eager to aid in. That is on October 4.

Also, school starts Monday. I am stoked!

Bought some sweatpants from GAP and I will be looking fresh the first day.

As much of a paradox as that may seem due to the purchase of sweatpants.

Anyway, G'night AByss.

25 cents for a warm feeling.

I never thought that I would be so anxious for school to start. Alas, I am.

I am excited to meet new people and just start to push myself again. Routine is a must with Wayne.

Audition update: They are still casting for the educational video.

Life is going at a good pace as per usual. We had a hurricane here the other day and I was without power for a bit. I was able to discover what it is like to shower blind and in the cold. An experience that I would have probably never have been able to experience otherwise. So thanks hurricane.

My car was also affected by the hurricane. Nothing dire, other than the fact that my muffler now sounds like it is missing. You know those people who drive down the road like a bat out of hell with the crappiest sounding muffler or lack there of and you always yell at them, "GET A MUFFLER!!"

I am now the recipient of those phrases.

The awful part is that I just had a new muffler installed so I am at a loss. Damn hurricane.

But I guess the positive thing is that I still have a house and my eyes and at least a muffler of some kind.

Today was my day off so I slept in till noon and then woke up and went to get shaving cream. That is about the extent of my day. Shaving was a priority but shower was not.

I also, in my post sleep state, went to my first laundromat. It was a rather interesting experience.

I always judge when I need to do laundry by the amount of clean underwear I have left. Now to fully understand the desperation of my need for clean clothes you have to understand how much underwear I have.

I have a lot.

I was getting low so I felt it was definitely time.

I walked in and there was only one person there; the owner. She was an interesting woman who looked about late thirties. She was middle eastern and she greeted me with a smile saying. "You have the place to yourself!"

I took her kind words of solitude as a sign that I could be friendly with her and I admitted that I had never partook the laundromat thing before. She reassured me that it was easy and we shared a moment watching the dry cycles of my underwear go round and round. I pictured her seeing some weird things in her time here.

The laundromat was of typical appearance except for the glorious Mrs. Pacman arcade game at the back of the room. I was in love. It was this moment that I decided that if I ever made enough money I would buy this machine off of this woman and give her more than she wants for it for her generosity of helping me wash my sweaters. I feel that is only fair.

Needless to say I washed all my clothes for under 10 bucks. I was happy and underwear laden again.

There is nothing like warm clean clothes.

Easy A

First of all, I am sorry that it has been over a week since my last post.

Second, I have been super busy. This provides a legitimate excuse for the statement above.

For those of you who told me to apply for the opposing company job you can have piece of mind knowing that I did indeed apply.

I have not heard anything back from them so I am to assume that I did not get the part. Which is ironic due to the amount of stress I put myself through thinking about whether to apply or not.

Audition update: I did not end up auditioning for The Fantastiks due to my already busy schedule and the fact that it was purely voluntary. I need money, I am a poor student. I have however auditioned for an educational film. I am waiting to hear back from them as to whether I received the part as I auditioned for the lead. It pays well so I am hoping for the best.

I performed the show that I have been working on on Sunday and it was alright. Monday night was thousands of times better and I know that we are going to do even better on Friday. I am proud of the group that I am working with; we were able to put together a show in about a week and people seem to really be enjoying it.

I am continuing to work constantly which of course makes my paychecks decent but does not afford me much of a social life. The good thing is that majority of my friends all started school this week so really I am not missing out on much. I am starting school on the 27th and I am stoked because I am all about routine so it will be nice to get back into that.

On the topic of social life; last night I went to see Machete and it was awesome. It ended up being a lot better than I expected. And I saw more of Jessica Alba which is more than I expected as well ;) I was thoroughly entertained. While I was there I took a picture of me and Emma Stone who was also conveniently there.

My car is making strange noises and I don't know why, but I know sound like one of those obnoxious dudes who do not own a muffler. I also drive standard which requires you to rev your engine so I just sound like a complete a-hole driving down the street. Always a great way to make good impressions.

I am really fond of the band Bahamas if you are bored and want some easy listening.

Thats all for now,

Peace Abyss
