In just 18 days I will be in Nashville to celebrate my birthday & in just 20 days I'll be turning 28!
Friday was a long, long day. I subbed in an 8th grade science class from 8:30-4:30 & then worked at my serving job from 5-11. So that's really all I have to say about that ha. I really enjoyed working with the 8th graders. And, despite not being a science teacher, I actually knew how to do what they were doing & since they had just started learning it the day before I actually got to help them with their work/teach them. My night job was sort of a bust. I mean I left with $75 after tip outs, which isn't terrible, but I know for a fact it could've been better. If a)I had just kept my spot upstairs instead of switching to downstairs or b)I had had more than my party. I had one table early on in the night, then my section was dead, & then I got a huge birthday party. Don't get my wrong they were super nice, & tipped me well, but because I pretty much had to focus on them all night I had to surrender some of my other tables to other servers. Then, 3 of us got cut early so I missed out on any tables that came in from 11-2. Between subbing & serving I made out pretty good for the day though & I got to sleep earlier than I thought I would.
I slept in for a bit & then finally decided to get random things done. I finally got my hotel booked for my Nashville trip in a few weeks. Originally we were going to use airbnb but because I procrastinated the affordable ones were gone. The hotel is actually cheaper than the airbnb would've have been plus I got 2 more nights towards a free stay from hotels.com as well as swagbucks. I still have no idea what I scraped the inside of my leg on but when I went to make coffee I scrapped my leg, knew it kind of hurt but didn't think anything of it until it felt wet & realized I was dripping blood. Making coffee got put off until after I got the bleeding to stop & made a Target run for band-aids & peroxide. After I returned I caught up on blogs from Friday, painted my nails, & got some posts ready. I headed into work a little early so that I could eat. While I waited to clock in I ate some loaded tator tots, played candy crush, & watched some college football. Work was steady the entire night but not overwhelming. I stayed on until close at 2 & then finally left around 3 after all of the cleaning was done.
Sunday morning was a struggle. I had so many things I wanted/needed to get done but I was so exhausted from working so late the night before. I finally got out of bed & ran to the store to get groceries for the week. I don't know why I ever think it's a good idea to go grocery shopping on a Sunday afternoon. I got stabbier there than I do in traffic. Once I finally got back home I made up some hamburger helper & started working on my annotated bibliography for an assignment. I had to work at 4 so I didn't really get a whole lot accomplished because I stayed in bed for too long & then grocery shopping took forever. Work was fairly slow but I still made decent money considering that I had a lot of down time. I had intended on subbing today but had to cancel because they kept me on far later than necessary. Between not getting home until 11:30-midnight & having to finish the bibliography, there was no way I could have subbed today. Especially because I serve tonight. 6 hours of sleep or less is not good for finishing assignments, spending 8 hours with 3rd graders, or working 12+ hour days.
