Happy New Year!

This year has been pretty hectic. I graduated and got my degree, then found a job as a transportation dispatcher. A job I had to take 3 buses and 1 train to get to, each way. 16 hour days, and a lot of walking. I caught a cold, first time in like 6 years. I'm around a bunch of truckers who swear...a lot. I don't swear, but lately I've been letting some words slip! Haha. I'm now renting a car with my new schedule, 4 10's F-M, and it costs me the same as when I was taking public transit! With the new schedule I work more than 10 hours a day, like 12 or 13, so I'm still tired! Haha. Having the car helps! I saw my sis for the first time in 2 years, it was bittersweet. She's an addict, but it was still good to at least see her. With my new schedule I have 3 days off during the week so I need to start studying for my MCITP, because eventually an IT job is my goal. And all in all, I made it another year. :) Best of the best wishes to my Twifam, and my Blogger followers. I know this next year is going to come with some exciting posts about moving forward. :) peace

Songs of Sunday

The Wanted - Glad You Came. So yesterday when I took my first break, I jumped in the rental and headed for the dollar store. Haha, I needed hand sanitizer for work because it's a 24/7 dispatch desk and, well, that's a lot of germs. On my way there I heard Ryan Seacrest say this was the number one song of 2012. I believe it, it was my fave for the longest time. Plus the guys are hot. ;) peace

Merry Christmas!

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday! Mine went quite well, I went and saw my family today. I ate like a pig, visited with my nephew, got some gifts, and headed back with leftovers! Haha, so I am def happy. There was one sweet/sour moment, that was when my sis arrived. She looks terrible, and I was happy to see her, but kind of sad to see her. She's an addict, and I'll just leave it at that. The last time I saw her was 2 years ago. I have the next couple of days off and I'm sooo looking forward to them. I did 35 hours at work, in 3 days. Yeah the new shift is kicking my butt, but it's a lot of OT so hopefully I can save up for a car soon. Until then, I have my rental, which I turn in tomorrow. :) My SG3 is still broke, hopefully next week I can send it in for a replacement, until then I'm on my EVO which sucks compared to the SG3. Haha. Oh well, I can survive another week. Hope you all have a great week! ;) peace Sexy Santa. :)

Sports Tease

I really miss when @blogger (yes this will Tweet) used to populate my blog title for me. Was so convenient. Oh well, moving on. Today was a good day at work, my first 12 hour shift. I'm exhausted, but at least the days as a dispatcher go by fast! Having lunch with my best friend tomorrow, looking forward to that. :) No muse for tonight's post, other than that I haven't posted a Sports Tease in awhile. Hope you all have a good week! ;) peace

So it looks like tonight was my last night on public transit commute. My shift changed, and I'm going to rent a car for the 4 10's that I need to work. I will be paying the same amount as I do on public transit. I should have thought of this earlier. Haha. :) I'm glad though, the 3 buses and a train each way was killing me! I hope it works out, I think it will. So happy for my new schedule. I will be off T,W TH, which means home alone in the condo, AND study time for my MS Certifications. Trying to make life work, as always! Hope you all had a great week. ;) peace

Too cute!

So today at work, I had a driver on "light duty" behind the desk with me. Basically when a driver gets hurt they go on light duty, and our filing, answer phones, annoy us dispatchers. He wasn't too bad though. One of his arms was sleeved in tats, so he is my muse for this post. If he knew how to work a computer, it would have been a better day. Haha! Hope you are all doing well. ;) peace

Love this! So cool!;) peace

I had a rental car this weekend. Ahhh it was so nice to be mobile! I think I'm ready to change my shift and start working the 4 10s, and just rent a car for those days. It's really inexpensive for the Fri, Sat, Sun only 10 bucks a day. Monday would be full price, so basically it comes out to about what I'm paying now a week for public transit. OR They are opening a Denny's literally half a block from where I live! Haha! I've worked at Denny's before, I'm down the street so I could be there in a moment's notice if someone calls in. I'm sure the shift would vary, opening up free time for me to study for my MS certs. Discounted food (the real winner). No worrying about getting back and forth to work, I'd save like $70 bucks a week! So yeah, I'm seriously thinking about it. Today's muse was the weather this morning. It was gray, and drizzly! But then the sun came out and made me happy. Back to work tomorrow, and the long days. Ugh! Have a great week! ;) peace

Where to start? Well, I dropped my phone on the bus tonight and the screen shattered. It's supposed to be Gorilla Glass! So I am very sad my Samsung Galaxy S3 is hurt. I'm taking it in tomorrow to the repair shop. Sprint hooks me up pretty good though. I'm sure my phone will be fine. I did order a case, but since it's the Holiday season, it won't be here until the 27th! Happy frigging Holidays to you and yours. Haha. I'm going to rent a car this weekend because I don't have a ride home on Saturday from work. My friend Roy has plans, and he normally picks me up Sat. nite. Since I'll have the car for the weekend (hopefully) I'm going to try and work Sunday so I'll get some OT in. Will be good for the pay check. When I told my mom tonight that my screen was cracked, she said "that's why I stay with monkey glass." *sigh* rezparents. Haha. She actually just got an Android phone a few weeks ago. I get like 4 texts a day starting with "how do I....?* OOMF on Twitter graduated tonight. I'm really happy for him. OOMF on Twitter has to deal with Baby Jesus like erry day! I feel bad for her, but I know she can handle it! OOMF on Twitter gave me big hugz today, I totally needed it because work was crazy. He also copped a feel, but that's just LJ. :p Today we had free food at work. Hamburgers, hot dogs, potato salad, a lot of good stuff! So I grazed all day AND ate the lunch I brought! Haha, so foodwise, I was happy. :) Still looking into buying a car, but the last salesman I talked to was called Big Rick. So um, maybe just look into renting for now. Jeeez! Hope you all had a great week. ;) peace

Songs of Sunday

Dixie Chicks - Lullaby. This has been a Songs of Sunday pick numerous times, but for different reasons. Today it's my choice because I tried to relax. I'm not good at relaxing. I'm always on the go, if you're a regular reader you know my public transit commute is about 3 hours each way, count in my 8 hour shift, so yeah...always on the go. I got a cold and I'm trying to get over it, but I don't rest enough for my body to actually beat it. So today I stayed in on my day off, watched a few movies, and tried to just relax. I was semi-successful, made a few short trips to the store; but for the most part I stayed in. This song always calms me and helps me relax, so I figured it would be a good post for today. Still working on the car thing, still dealing with the drama of my job, and still trying to keep a smile on my face. :) I hope you all have a great week! Tomorrow is my Sunday. ;) peace

Things That Make Me Smile

Okay this commercial is a bit cheesy, but I do think it's cool that the screen won't go off until you are not looking at it. I have this phone, and it's pretty cool feature. I'm still learning about the phone though, still have the default ringtone and background paper! Haha! Bad tech guy! ;) peace

Turn Around

Been awhile since I posted a Turn Around post. Haha, I'll schedule this for a later posting time. This blog posts to Twitter, I just feel like I'll be judged. LOL But hey it's one of my pic categories that I post under. ;) peace
