[Ramblings] One of These Days...

Unfortunately, not today.

My first day off in three weeks, feels kind of strange, really. One of the great things about having two jobs is that I have plenty of money. One of the worst things about having plenty of money is that there's always stuff to spend it on. This past week, I finally got the Buick fixed (I think I mentioned this already, but I'm too lazy to go back and check, so...). It needed an ignition switch and a new battery. Then it needed new wiper blades, and now it needs new tires. I think I can make it to March on the old tires, if I'm careful, then I can use my tax return to put brand new tires on the damned thing and not have to worry about it for, oh, until the new tires go bad.

My supervisor at Coke told me that he understands that I'm pursuing my new career with Publix, and confided that he wants to keep me on the payroll somehow, though I'm not quite sure how that's going to work out, given that everything's changing up in March. I wouldn't be able to guarantee him much, if any, of my time, and I really don't know what to do about it. I've been advised both ways, and I know that I don't have a future with Coke, so I'm probably just going to end up leaving at the end of February. It's a lot of pressure, more so because I'm not used to being wanted, haha. I have two more job offers on the table, as well, from other places. It's crazy.

Things haven't really progessed with Megan (you know her as Mystery Girl), but she's working and going to school, so I've been trying to be present and I've been trying to maintain that she's under no pressure from me. I can't imagine trying to work a full-time job and go to school all at the same time. It's gotta be exhausting. Trying to stay slow and steady, eh?

So much going on, and here I am, on a Saturday, with nowhere to be. When it warms up a bit, I'm going to go out and attempt to clean up the inside of the car. After that, who knows? I'll probably end up collapsing again and doing nothing productive with my time. Such is the way of the world.

Soon, things won't be so busy, and I'll have time again. Just riding the wave.
