It is 2AM on October 30th and staying true to quantifying my life in terms of how close Election day is, it is 5 days away. I have sacrificed my bank accounts and standard of living by not working when I could have been and I have let my my grades suffer by working on this campaign since August. The thought that in 5 days it could all be a waste is a little frightening. I just cashed out my 401k to make it through and I’m stressed to say the least.
I decided to get back into school after 6 years and my performance this semester has been less than stellar. I hope I have time to pull it out of the gutter once the campaign is over. I hope.
I do this because it is a cause greater than myself and my hope for the future overpowers my concerns for my present. That is why I do this.
Well, I survived my second day at my new job as a Store Manager. It was no ordinary second day however. Today had we had to conduct a full store inventory. Thankfully my team(myself and 3 people), a District Manager, and 4 other Managers conducted the inventory. Even with 9 people I still didn’t get out until 1AM. I am salary, so no OT for me. The good news is that even though the previous Store Manager apparently didn’t do a very good job we actually ended up in the positive in our inventory. No net losses! Woohoo!
Well, that’s the update on my life. Oh, and I’m listening to Cher. YAY stereotypes!
Well, my split weekend is here. I have Friday and Sunday off. I so, so, so miss my two days off in a row. One day soon maybe, hopefully, possibly.
I’m exhausted and frustrated, it was just one of those days. Also found out some terrifying financial news, but I’ll be alright.
Just finished my glass of wine and now it’s time for a nice hot shower. Tried a random new one this time, Black Swan Shiraz-Merlot. Pretty good.
