Today I finally get to rest. I had completed a record-breaking eight days of slave labor. I have never even worked seven days straight in my life. And when I did work six days, it was part time!
Anyways, I only have two days of "rest" or maybe I should call it recuperation. I like to say that my job is a notch above slave labor. Perhaps I am more like an indentured servant, since my manager knows I will not be a dishwasher forever and just wanted an entry level job to "get in" the corporation. Therefore, I am indentured for six months at minimum, working to the brink of death so she has a return on her investment. The night dishwasher who has been there for five years does not get treated the way I am. That is because he will stay another five years, so she does not worry. But with me, she will squeeze every drop of blood and soul from me. I am the Dishslave.
I think I will be able to transfer to another position by the end of October. I am looking for that coveted hospital CNA position. It will mean me going to Shea, but that is okay, it is closer to drive there than TPK.
In the meantime, I have been contemplating my educational future. I went to Tucson for an "info session" at UA for that MEPN program. Not much to learn other than I over dress and that it is not an "MSN" but a "masters in science with a concentration in nursing." Okay whatever. In any case, I have submitted my credits for evaluation and I hope that they accept my stuff. If not, well, then I dunno. I was thinking about what I would do if I was not accepted. I thought that I could go to LPN school and then save up to go to flight school. Maybe. We shall see. I am going to assume that my credits will be sufficient. I just have to get a letter from KCC saying I left the nursing program on my own and was not expelled and I have to get a fingerprint card. Hmm, I should do that now actually. In any case, I will assume the credits will transfer and I will be good to go.
Today has been pretty lazy. I need to get the jeep fixed but I am too tired to drive to Phoenix and wait around all day in the middle of some crappy area while it's getting fixed. I just may have to wait until next week when I have more strength. Or patience. Either one.
Today I have to go shopping but as you can see, I am not accomplishing that. Maybe in a bit. I have a lot to do. Sigh.
Right now I am gearing up for my record breaking 8th day of slave labor, oh I mean job. Yup! My manager scheduled me for EIGHT DAYS STRAIGHT and did it in a way where I can't really get overtime. Nice.
Anyway, I will discuss that more when I get home and can rest finally. I don't think I am going to agree to this schedule next time she tries to do this to me.
UGHH!! My hands hurt. Wrists are overrated. Who needs wrists????
