Well, not really, but still. I've had to work more than I normally do. I'm always on the closing shift so I usually work 5pm-9pm Mon-Fri. Yesterday and today, I had full shifts and it was horrible! I've been spoiled with my four hour shifts that working 8 hour shifts are pure torture. Last night, I went in at 4:30pm and when I walked in the door, my manager managed to track me down to ask if I would mind staying until midnight to help straighten...

For me, it has been a couple of bands and one of them is The Academy Is... My sophomore year of high school, my mom got diagnosed with pancreatitis and doctors had told us that she had a 50/50 chance of surviving her illness. My mom and I aren't super close but at that moment, I realized just how much I had taken her for granted. You only get one mom in this life and you have to ap...

So I finally out some thought into it and here's what I came up with.

Mon, 5 Mar 2012 13:30:51 EST Writing Okay, so I'm going to try to use this as a "daily journal" of sorts for a few reasons. To help me deal with personal issues as well as to help me get back in the habit of writing. So here it goes. <BR> <BR> Although today was a day off from school and work, it was still a pretty crappy day although I really didn't do much. Had to take my mum for a doctor's appointment, then went to do some errands. What I was really trying to do was avoid doing homework that was due at midnight. Although I d...
