Walmart, Insanity, and other updates. :)

Friday, June 21, 2013

Working at Walmart is a lot more stressful than what I thought it would be. With the season coming to a close so is lawn and garden. I love working back there, it gives me the chance to move a lot, and left and all that fun stuff. I really hate to go to a different department afterwards. The scheduling is stupid. Next week I'm working 530pm-10pm and then the next day Im working 830am....... it's killing me on my sleep and on my social life. It isn't constant and I hate it. I like the people Im working with and I'm even making friends and reuniting with old ones. The money is okay, it's better than nothing. I hate working register and answering phones. My favorite part of the job is getting the fish for people and helping them find things they need around the store. I think I do better on the sales floor than I do on register and I'm hoping that the managers will see that and keep me out there to help our customers. I've been getting a lot of compliments about my helpfulness, this one couple had even sought me out specifically to help them. That really made my day! I'm trying to learn all I can, I'm hoping that I can mix paint soon but since I've never done it before I need someone to talk me through it. I even want to do the sporting license! Ill do anything to stay on the sales floor and off of register.

Anyways, I'm thinking of getting the Insanity Workout. Has any one tried it? Did it work? Is it worth it? I need something that's going to kick my ass and make sure I'm not getting bored.

Also, hopefully in a couple more pay days, I can get my tattoo. Nick talked to a tattoo artist for me and it's going to be between $600 and $750. Which considering how big its going to be, make since so I'm happy with the numbers :)

I'm working on saving up for so many things! It's a lot harder than I thought it would be. I have money and I want to spend it. I've stopped myself from impulse buying a lot lately. I've bought clothes but it was mostly on clearance so it was marked waaaay down.

Also, recently my mom fell down a flight of steps outside our house. She busted her wrist pretty badly and had to have surgery to repair it. She's dealing with the pain as much as she can considering what happened. She has hydrocodone which she tries to avoid as long as she can before the pain becomes too unbearable. My dad hasn't lefted a finger for her and is still demanding that she does everything around the house. He believes that shes faking the pain and that it isn't as bad as she says it is. Everything he has been doing lately is only proving to her that she doesn't need him. It's sad but and he's my dad but the thing is, though, my mom can do better. She deserves someone who isn't going to take her for granted and work her like a slave and get jealous when she talks to someone who isn't him or his friends. I'm not close to my dad. He likes to think we are but we aren't... He's cause us more stress than anything and it's ridiculous.

Anyways.... That's pretty much it for right now. :)

    I used to work for Walmart... It's kinda like everything else it has it's ups and downs. But getting out was the best thing I've ever done. Hope the experience does you well. I've heard good things about the insanity workouts. Haven't tried them myself.

    I understand about your mom and dad, I feel the same sometimes but in reverse.

    Glad you are enjoying most of the job at Walmart. Sounds like it's quite a diversified job so you will never be bored! Hope management can see how good you are helping customers instead of working the registers. Keep on doing what you are doing - hopefully the customers will let the management know!
