So life has been insane and I've not managed a proper post lately. Sadly, life is going to continue to be insane, and it will probably be a while longer before I manage a proper post. I got my schedule for the next few weeks. For the foreseeable future I will be assistant managing two stores an hour and a half apart from each other. The idea was, I'd work three days at the big store, and two at the little one. This was a great idea in theory. In practice, the store managers at both stores utterly fail at communication, so next week I work 6 days, and the next week I work 5, but I barely get enough hours to qualify for full time by company standards. On a happy note, I got my full time benefits package paperwork, sooooo I should theoretically have my raise on my next paycheck. \o/
Also, school started today. I signed up for three classes, neglecting to remember that summer classes are very short, so you do two weeks of work for every one week in a normal semester. It's a little overwhelming to look at, but I'm pretty good at working things in, and there aren't any proctored exams, so I think I'll be good, actually.
Still debating on the insane commute vs. moving somewhere I don't want to move front. On that note, I guess I better make a decision soon, as that will decide whether or not I transfer schools and I have to get that sorted out for fall. >:E
Book is still coming along. Somewhere in the neighborhood of 22,000 words plus the stuff I wrote today when work was slow. Damn, but I am going to miss working at a store small enough to write on my shifts sometimes.
