Today was my second day as an official barista (as in, no longer training) and I had a 7 hour shift. So I got there and spent the first half of my shift helping on the bar and on register...about what I was expecting, I'm new so I don't get the fun jobs ^_^.
But then, after I'd taken lunch, I got to be on bar and almost as soon as I got to do that we were slammed! Some of the old hands say it was like it's going to be when we hit holiday season traffic. It was kind-of fun and exciting, apparently I keep my head well in that kind of high pressure situation (I got lots of compliments on how well I was doing from my coworkers)
So yes, I'm mostly enjoying work, with the big exception of those days I have to get up before 5am. >_>;;
THEY GAVE ME A DRESS FORM! YOU CAN USE IT FOR PANTS TOO!
Con is finished! I'm back in my land of not super hot sunshine! (this is actually a really good thing as I caught quite a bit of sun just today and I wasn't even outside all that much!) And I'm almost not sick at all anymore! 24 hr bug for the win!!
Fanimecon was pretty awesome, though Musicfest was way more laidback in comparison to last year (though the apocalypse might have been more laidback than last year....). I met some new cool people, got to see other cool people again and infected everyone in my room with the evil 24hr cold. Awesomesauce, fear me and my infectious touch! Muahahahahahahaha!! At least they all get to be sick after con...though it still sucks because of other work of course.
Today was ezciting, and not in an especially good way...starting mid lunch I got this really strange aura. My entire world looked kinda like low-res video, majorly headache inducing and I couldn't read anything....a bit scary. And then, after getting back to the room, I started to feel like it might be a migrane coming on. WELCOME TO FANIME! Fortunatly I'm all back to normal now after a semi-involuntary nap and more food.
Lets hope tomorrow isn't quite as exciting...
.....I fail horribly at updating. So here! Have a short and nonsensical post-bit!
Tomorrow I'm getting my hair cut.
That is all.
Yep, just a bit over a week until I fly home for my brother's High School Graduation! Two weeks of no school, lots of family and friends!! (can you tell I'm looking forward to it?)
After this trip I won't be going home again until my contract is up (barring unforseen circumstances)...that means a full year (and I get a chance to see K8's winter con).
