Today, something cool happened. I was just wandering in town and I walked in this second-hand book store where they also sell some second-hand dvds. There I found the entire series of Stargate SG-1 for only 45 euros. Not buying would've been silly. Ten seasons, 212 episodes and three movies for only 45 euros is something you just can't let go. It still looks pretty new despite a small scratch on the side of the cover. RDA looks like they wanted to slice his throat and the scratch goes all the way to the right of the cover, through Daniel's shoulder, but I'd rather have that then damaged dvd's. But this was something totally unexpected. Funny thing is today I said I would accept everything the universe throws in my arms and I end up with the whole series of StarGate. biggrin.gif

I got the job!

It was pretty stressful at first, and I actually wound up changing my mind and declined their offer, because with my disabilities and the fact that it was my first real job, I was too stressed out to jump right into the hours they were asking. But then a couple hours later, the hiring manager called me and offered to accommodate. We worked out a schedule that satisfies us both, and I start on Monday biggrin.gif

Apparently I did better on the math test than anyone else they've hired huh.gif

My mom had to get the car checked yesterday, so we pulled into the garage, and my mom popped the hood... and pulled out a slice of pizza from the engine. This is why we hate the squirrels in our neighborhood...

And then the mechanic jumps into the driver's seat to drive the car in and he's like: "Hi smile.gif" and I'm trying to dry my face which is wet from sobbing in laughter over the pizza slice...

Second day of my job, and I'm having doubts.

*being interviewed for the job at Hobby Lobby*

"So, are you able to handle a job that's fast-paced, on your feet, lifting and grabbing things for a six to eight hour shift (including breaks)?"

Me, who hasn't done any muscle-building activity and it pretty much lethargic all the time: Sure...

I spent the last two hours and fifteen minutes taking full shopping carts of returns and carting all around the entire store looking for where they go.

I was allowed to ask for help from different employees, including the manager himself.

There were also labels on each one telling me which department each item was meant to go in.

I still got lost. Constantly.

The first cart was okay, but the second one was overstuffed with random items so tight I couldn't really get them out to focus on each one individually. A lot of coworkers came by and took stuff out because it matched their department. So I walked constantly. My feet pretty much died within the first hour, and not long afterwards, went numb with pain. I had to sneak into one of the abandoned sections and just stand on one foot at a time to ease the pain. Didn't help much, but made it slightly tolerable.

Tracking down coworkers for help isn't easy when you're wandering all over the place and they have specific tasks in specific areas to do. Not helpful when they keep pointing in vague directions for each item in the cart, and no, I can't remember all of that...

I finally finished about five minutes after my shift was supposed to be done. I did two carts. There were two more, but they're someone else's problem XD

My legs are so cramped that they're too stiff to stretch out. My feet feel better, until I stand up. Then they feel bruised over the entire bottoms, all the way down to the bone. Should've taken your allowed break, Doggy (I'm allowed one fifteen minute break. My 30 minute lunch break is mandatory).

So, hopefully I don't die tomorrow XD DX

So...how you doing?

Random fact: I was watching The Lion Guard yesterday with a little kid and Justin Hires was the voice of one of the characters laugh.gif I had been sitting there like "I know this voice" and so I googled it and found out that it was him.

The rest of my work week wasn't so bad. If you want an idea of what my boss is like, Truck Day was Thursday, and we got in a shipment of pillows. He took one huge on and threw it at one of the employees. It pretty much beaned her, and he yells "PILLOW FIGHT!" So yeah, that's my boss laugh.gif

I haven't watched the Lion Guard, but I'm familiar with it, and this is the first I've heard of Justin Hires being one of the voice actors. I should start paying attention to stuff laugh.gif

Yeah, I looked it up, and read about that. I've heard him sing in BtS videos, and I'm not impressed laugh.gif I'm assuming he did better in the episode?

So, Saturday I scrapped skin off of the knuckle of my left thumb opening a new bottle of shower gel. Unfortunate, but no big deal.

Monday I scrape skin off my left middle finger when I bump it into the wall trying to plug in my 3ds. Annoying.

Today I get a paper cut right next to the scrape on my thumb when trying to put some stuff in my locker at work. What the heck?

Then not much later, while cleaning glass, I cut another finger on my left hand, right by the cuticle. I don't know how, I just felt sudden pain and looked down and saw it start to bleed. I had two bandaids in my locker, instantly grabbed one out for the paper cut, end up going back for the other one for this cut.

Later on, the blade I was using to scrape residue off of glass digs into my left index finger. I wait a bit, no blood. It never broke skin, so despite the pain, it was nothing.

So what should I do about a cursed left hand?
