Rednecks, Bible Thumpers and Retards, oh My!
Several decent things are going on for me this month, so no complaints (thus far. *knock-on-wood*). I managed to pull off making straight A’s this past quarter, so that brings me to a cumulative GPA of 3.9… which is pretty good for using as leverage to get into grad school, or even for job opportunities.
I don’t think I’ve gotten straight A’s since grade school! I had to call my parents, because I don’t remember being able to tell them that since the 80’s. heh. I never applied myself in high school, because I was so anxious to get out. I got my GED back in ’91 (my Junior year), went to a vocational school for commercial design in ’92, and haven’t been back to school since (until now). I’m rather surprized I was able to pull it off after such along break!
I’m finally excited about this profession. I love doing this shit! Being head waitress… or even just a waitress is good money, but I fucking HATED it. There’s nothing more demeaning than having to smile and be nice to some asshole that’s snapping his/her fingers at you and running you around like mad… for a measely 15-20% tip.
I noticed the tips here in fucking hickville-backwoods-motherfucker-land were significantly less in percentage than when I worked in South Florida… by ALOT! I’d average 30% tips in FL (on really high checks, as I worked @ an Italian restaurant with an expensive menu and wine list), and averaged 18% here in Charlotte (at higher end sushi resturaunts). Just one more reason to hate it here.
Anyway, I’d better get some stuff done around the house, as LiLi is coming to visit (not this weeekend, but hopefully the next)! =D Yay!!
Oh yeah… for those of you I normally chat with on gmail’s chat (Doc Weas, William, J.-slow-hand…), I didn’t realize I had signed out of chat, and was wondering why no one was ever online anymore =P. I’m signed back in now!!!
