Ya see, I've been busy on a daily basis with work for income. I like it that way. My current schedule at the restaurant is cashier (in the absolute worst tip-creating shift) on Mondays from 7 a.m. until 3 p.m., then "float" (which is the second worst tip-generating job) on Fridays and Sundays from 9 a.m. until about 3 p.m. I don't dislike either of these jobs, nor do I dislike my co-workers, the clientele, the food, nor the restaurant itself. I dislike the commute, particularly since I'm still the new kid and am going to only be scheduled for this "worst" schedule. Which is why, when I find industry work, I do what is necessary to swap or give up any shift that needs coverage so I can go make money and be happy. It's also why I don't see myself working at this place anywhere near as long as my friend Lynly, who mediated my hiring. If another similarly-waged non-industry gig presents itself in my neighborhood, I'll be jumping all over that opportunity. Hopefully, it won't feel like I'm abandoning my 'mates!
THIS WEEK, starting on Friday of LAST week, I had three days at the restaurant, followed by three days on set (*squee!*), followed by TWO days at the restaurant, a day of personal assisting/bookkeeping (today), and then I'll have two more days at the restaurant. I'm really hoping that I pick up some more industry work this week, to keep me busy on Tuesday through Thursday. I really like having something to do every day, especially if at the end of the day, I get to say,
I AM A MONEY MAGNET, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.
Just no more sleepin' in for me. :)
