i finally feel like an actual adult! and i hate it. 

okay so it isn't that bad, but my new job is exhausting and it's been sapping up all my time and energy. i'm cleaning at a local gym for 6+ hours at a time, five days a week. i only have monday and tuesday off, so i mostly just sleep. i don't get home from work until after midnight, so i don't have time to do much other than work and sleeping. the pay is good though, and i'm spending it on adult things, like game of thrones hoodies and video games. and my phone bill.

in other news, i'm doing nanowrimo this year, since i have a workable plot for once! i'm hoping i can get to 50k, but i think i can do it.

two weeks ago, i started working at krispy kreme. it started out okay, and i got to take free doughnuts home to my parents so that was cool. my second day of training, there's a HUGE rush of people. all i knew how to do at that point was glaze doughnuts and clean the bathrooms, but maggie, the manager, insisted i attempt to fill orders and make drinks and toast bagels. i didnt know where anything was, and when i told her it was only my second day of training, she told me to deal with it. she gave me a headset but didnt tell me how to use it, so i got to hear her bitch at me for four and a half hours. she told me to help the customers but then proceeded to tell me i wasnt doing anything right, instead of telling me how to fix it.

when it was finally time for me to leave, she stood in front of the register and refused to let me go home. earlier in the day, she made me put my phone in her office, which she locked and wouldn't let me into. i couldnt get to my phone, i couldnt clock out, i couldnt leave; i got out of there an hour later than i was supposed to and was late for a doctor's appointmemt that i had scheduled since last year. everyone else was allowed to have their phones, and there was nothing in the manual about cell phones. i dealt for the entire week without too many more issues.

fast forward to saturday, where yet again, i was given a headset without any explanation on how to use it. nobody else would show me how to use it so i just sort of brushed it off. i was supposed to be done training by the end of the day, but i had gone over next to nothing in my training manual. everyone was too disorganized to care. i got such complaints as "don't give customers bags even if they have four boxes of doughnuts! what are you even doing?", "you couldn't complete that order in under two minutes, you're too slow!", featuring new hits like "you got CREAM CHEESE in the BAGEL HOLE! what are you doing, who taught you how to do this??" and "you didnt greet them loud enough!", followed by "that was TOO loud. would YOU want to be greeted like that?" everything i did was a problem, and i was very literally pushed aside the entire time.

surprise, surprise, she kept me over an hour later than i was supposed to be there. when i told her about the dentist appointment (that i had set up six months earlier) she said "that's too bad, you don't have any set end time." she told me when she hired me that i had four hour shifts, which is one of the reasons i took the job in the first place. my anxiety levels were through the damn roof, and her nagging me all day through the headset, combined with the fact that she refused to let me go home AGAIN, resulted in my hands shaking so badly that i spilled a customer's boiling hot coffee all over my hands and got second degree burns. i wasnt allowed to take care of them though; she just told me to put a pair of gloves on so the customers wouldn't see.

yet again, my phone had been locked up so i couldn't even text my parents to let them know what was going on and why i was so late. i was late for a dentist's appointmt this time, and after another unbelievably crappy day yesterday, i quit. i tried filing complaints with the franchise owners, but i couldn't get in touch with them and there was no place to leave any sort of feedback on their website.

TL;DR: bossy manager and a disorganized team combined with very little actual training and poor treatment makes me quit my job after only being there two weeks.

anti-complaint: my cousin is the manager of a gym, and he called this morning with a job offer for me. it'll be a lot less stressful with a much better paycheck and more stable hours!
i finally started writing again, and i found that something that really helps me is to make playlists for certain characters or scenes. besides the fact that it's fun, it helps me out of pesky writing slumps! :la:

do you make playlists for the things you're writing? how do you pick the songs? if you don't, what DOES help you write?

And your eyes must do some raining if you are ever going to grow
But when crying don't help and you can't compose yourself.
It is best to compose a poem, an honest verse of longing or simple song of hope.~
