That’s my schedule for job #2 for next week. Awesome! I pretty much have a full schedule for job #1 so I’m not worried.
Hello Black Friday! Today just might be a 3 or 4 cups of coffee/Pepsi day. I’m to blame for most of it of course- I agreed to work an extended shift at my first job so instead of working from 1:30 to 5:30 I’m now working from 9:45 to 5:45, then I’m heading to my second job to work from 6:15 to 3:00 am. I think. I’m not 100% sure what time my shift ends. I’m not even sure what shift I’m working on Saturday besides my noon to 4 at the first job. I haven’t actually been to my second job this whole week so my paycheck is bound to suck. At least I’ve already got my schedule for next week and its not too bad! I don’t even have to trade shifts or anything! I’ll let you know if I survive this day!
I’m not even going to mention the holiday that wasn’t for me this year. Basically my plans were ruined by work since my family is not local. So my parents left around noon, which is when I got out of bed. I was texting my friend who works at my second job with me and she mentioned that she was sent home since it was so slow! I hadn’t heard otherwise from work so I lazied about the house and then got ready for work. An hour before I was to show up- my phone rings and its work. They cancelled my shift. So basically my family was all gathered together and I was at home- an hour and a half away and they cancel my only reason for not being able to make it. To say I was pissed, was a gross understatement.
I still have not gotten my schedule fixed from my other job and it seems Black Friday/Saturday is gonna be hellish. Here’s what my schedule looks like:
1:30pm-5:30pm: work at 1st Job
5:00pm-2:00am: work at 2nd Job (this is after the ‘adjustment’ it obviously needs to be fixed, originally this was a 6pm-3:30am shift)
5.5 Hours off! Minus 30 minutes each to and from work, minus an hour to shower & get ready for work=3.5 to nap & eat!
6:30am-11:00am: work at 2nd Job
Noon-4:00pm: work at 1st Job
So obviously Friday needs to fixed because I can’t start work at 5:00 when I’m working until 5:30 at my first job. It’ll be interesting to see what my schedule for next week will be, judging by this week schedule, they’ll double book me at least twice next week too. I doubt I’ll even nap in between the time I leave Saturday morning to the time I come back. I’m not one of those people who can just fall asleep at the drop of a hat. This is just insane.
UPDATE: I finally called and made sure my Tuesday shift was covered and so now I think I just have to worry about my Friday/Saturday shifts, I won’t bother with them until I come in on Thursday- Thanksgiving!
So life is going to start to get crazy soon, well it actually already is for me and some of my friends. In order to relax and have a little fun, my friend Lindsey and I decided to partake in some retail therapy and get some dinner after work today. Well, I worked, she didn’t. We actually both work together at one of my jobs. It would have been a lot nicer if it wasn’t so rainy but we grabbed a quick bite at Chipotle and then headed to Macy’s at Sunrise Mall. She had to do some Christmas shopping for her gran and her mother, who are in England where she’s originally from. She picked up a cute wallet and some awesome gift sets. I spied a cute black sparkly makeup bag on clearance and had to buy it. I’m not a huge Macy’s shopper but I can never resist clearance!
From Macy’s we headed over to JC Penney’s because I wanted to pop into the Sephora. I was looking for the ‘Best of’ gift set or something like that, not for Christmas but as a reward for myself lol. We browsed around and tried things out, I settled for a few small things and one big thing I’ll be showing you tomorrow. So, I purchased-
*Too Faces Beauty Editor Darlings
*Kat Von D Tattoo Concealer
I got for free-
*Philosophy Hope in a Jar Deluxe Sample (100 Beauty Insider Points)
*Nars Orgasm Illuminator Deluxe Sample
*Fresh Sugar Lips Mini Duo (BDay Gift)
*Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer
*Sephora Hydrating Powder Blush in Rose Petal
I have so far used the powder blush and I loved it. The Smashbox primer is my new favorite primer and each sample packet is actually good for 2-3 applications. I used the mascara from the Too Faced set and it had a nice skinny applicator that didn’t make my lashes clump up. My favorite thing here so far is the Fresh Sugar Lips Mini duo. I am so loving this cute set, the lip glosses are so smooth and they have no flavor but a nice sweet scent. It’s not sugary at all, but it is yummy! I am definitely going to be buying more of this brand!
This might totally reveal where one of my jobs is but I’m not going to outright say it. I got my schedule for my work next week and to say it’s a little jacked up, is putting it lightly. I probably wasn’t paying that much attention because I didn’t need more hours at this job, but I was under the impression that I would be able to spend the day with my family on Thanksgiving- you know the holiday you’re suppose to spend with your family before the insanity of Black Friday and Christmas kick in. I was not expecting to be working from 5-9, one of my mandatory holiday shifts. This year we were suppose to go to San Ramon and we were all finally going to be together for Thanksgiving but alas I am going to be missing it because of work. In case you didn’t know where that is- San Ramon is about an hour and a half from where I live. Even if we ate our meal at 2 pm I’d still have to leave right after to make it home in time to start at 5. So I won’t ruin everyone else’s day I’m just not going, I want my family to have a good holiday and not rush through dinner and then driving home.
To add insult to injury I was also scheduled to work on Black Friday from 6pm to 3:30 am, then from 6:30 am to 11:30 am followed by a shift at my other job from noon to 4:30 pm. That’s not going to work. So I brought it up at work and luckily they found it unusual as well and will fix this. As well as my double booking on Tuesday. Oy, what a headache!
The fact that its not a known fact that the store will be open just annoys me. All this hoopla about Target opening at 8 and no mention of our store which has normal hours on Thanksgiving and then closes for 4 hours to reopen at midnight and will stay open for the next 24 hours!
It’s finally my day off tomorrow! I’m so excited, I have absolutely nowhere I have to be tomorrow. I still may go to Berkeley since I forgot I have things to drop off but more than likely I’m gonna try to head over on Tuesday with my family, that is if I can fix my schedule. I had emailed my manager at one of my jobs with my new schedule and there were some conflicts, if I can’t fix it, I may just ask my friend Lindsey to cover my shift, I don’t mind losing 4 hours.
I finally did something with my nails and I tried a nail polish I got from Birch Box, I screwed it up though and buffed my nails too smooth and so the polish didn’t stick. I’ll have to redo them tomorrow- on my day off!
I also stayed up late moving my furniture around. I won’t post a pic since its waaaay too messy. I’m glad with my newest arrangement. My room feels much larger and I’m closer to the window. So what’s on the schedule for my day off? Errands mostly, laundry, rotating my fall/winter clothes and food shopping. My life is so exciting isn’t it?
So as you may know or not, I had training today for my second job. I guess it’s my main part time job now and my other job is what I consider my second job. I woke up, got ready and showed up early, then ten minutes before it was suppose to start I realized I forgot my folder of paperwork so I had to call my dad to bring it to me. Gah! It’s been my longest work day so far at 8 hours, well 8 hours sitting in a room training is really hard, and different than 8 hours working on the sales floor. I have to say I thought my last job was pretty organized and structured but this new place is even more so. At my last job I did a few hours of training compared to almost 2 weeks at the new place. I’m impressed.
