Texting and Working

I got free texting a little while ago, so I can be less cheap with my phone. It turns out I'm spending the same amount (with pay as you go) now as I was before I got free texting. It kind of blows because I don't have a job so I can't really afford to be spending too much. Job-wise, I'm not sure where I want to work. I was thinking Red Robin (Notice it's not called Red Robins. My childhood is ruined), but I can't get there by bus, and my dad works, and my mom tutors at random times, so I can't depend on rides from my parents. The only other option is to bus part-way and then walk the rest of the way, which I was willing to do...until my dad reminded me of the neighbourhood around Red Robin. It's like druggie/hooker central (For Maple Ridge anyways). So I decided to settle for second-best and I think I'll apply at Staples. I've known a few people who have worked there, and they all seem to have liked it, as far as jobs go. I'm pretty sure I can bus there, and I think they'd be fairly flexible for my hours, so I'll probably go pick up an application some time soon.

I hate the process of applying places. After how I got the job at Jacob's, it's hard to make myself write out a formal resumé, and fill out an application form. For Jacob, he just got my brother to bring me one day, and work alongside him, and I guess he was just making sure I wasn't retarded or something, and then at the end of the day he paid me for that day's work, and told me to come back the next day.

Also, apparently at Staples their electronics department is already pretty much full, so I'd probably end up restocking stuff, and maybe being a cashier. That's not too bad, just I would like it a lot more if I could work with computers and stuff.

A little update

I guess it's about time for another post. I don't really have much to tell, but SOMEONE (*cough* Kayla *cough*) keeps hassling me to write something, so I guess I will...

October 30th was the due date for the yearbook write-ups for the grads...I wasn't sure what I was going to write, but I wanted it to be funny, but not a waste of space. I ended up writing something like 'Wow, that was 13 years of school? It felt like...13 years.' and then some random stuff, followed by 'I've always liked living in Pitt Meadows, because it's such a nice little peaceful community. Unfortunately, a couple years ago, I got in one little fight and my mom got scared and said 'You're moving with your auntie and uncle in Bel-Air. I whistled for a cab and when it got near the license plate said FRESH and it had dice in the mirror. Have good lives, classmates.' I sure hope everyone is still down with Bel-Airs by the end of the year, otherwise my write-up will be lame :(

Anyways, if something interesting happens, I'll try to remember to write about it.
