That ladybug is started to piss me off.

Today has been so unproductive, I’m not even going to talk about it. Let’s skip to yesterday. I worked, it sucked, and I went home really early. I am so sick, so.. so.. sick of working at Wendy’s. It just won’t go away, it’s always there like my own personal hell. Quite frustrating. I want to start a career and it seems no matter what I do, I can’t get one. However, there might be some light at the end of the tunnel, even if it’s not what I was necessarily hoping for. Yesterday I emailed Dave after getting in the mail some invitation for a career services luncheon. I had no clue what that was, or if I was supposed to even get the invite in the first place. Turns out it’s DeVry’s last ditch effort to help students like myself who can’t seem to get a job from the June graduating class. Dave has insisted upon me that I give Steak and Shake corporate another chance. (Yeah.. I can talk about jobs on here now, because I’ve since removed the link to my journal on what I’m now calling my “resume site” on I don’t even remember what month it was when I went to that DeVry career fair and talked to the guy from HR at Steak and Shake. It was before graduation, I at least know that much. He really seemed interested in me, and that didn’t surprise me given my four grueling years I’ve been stuck at Wendy’s and all of the other experience I’ve had. However, I didn’t take up his offer for the interview at the time because I was so set on the fact that I do not want to go into the restaurant business further than I already am. However, Dave’s insisting this would be worth it. This is after all a corporate opportunity. I’d be put into their management in training program and would be trained as a manager at one of their stores most likely, like I’ve seen happen at Wendy’s before. But after a few months of that, I’d have room to grow I presume. Meaning, I don’t necessarily have to take the path of a general manager. I don’t want that at all. I would however be interested in an office job at their corporate office in Ohio. That’s FINE with me. But regardless I’d have to go through this MIT program. I’ll admit, sometimes I wonder if I’m even restaurant manager material. I would hate to have to manage Wendy’s and though Steak is in ways much different, I’m a little intimidated. But, one thing is for sure. I want to quit Wendy’s now, and I would if I could. Steak and Shake starts college graduates out at about $30,000 a year. That’s really generous, esp. in this tough market. Dave says he can get me an interview. We’ll see what happens. He also sent my resume to BYSIS and they told him they were looking my resume over, but I’ve yet to hear anything from them or Steak and Shake today.

As for the career luncheon, that’s next Wednesday. Assuming my jerk of a manager Brent took down my request I already called off Friday to recuperate from Andrew’s Halloween party, and then Saturday for the OSU game. The luncheon is on Wednesday from 11:30 to 1:30 PM on Wednesday. I went in last night after I had worked and asked Brent if I could request to also go in later that day, and he gave me grief and said no. Says I have to talk to Jon, but that Jon will be “upset” with me as I already, as he put it, “stiffed” him last week when I wasn’t coming in at 8 AM for an open, (I never open anyway, it was ridiculous), so I could see my nephews and niece that day. I’m sick of the attitude they give me, and sometimes I wish they’d just fire me.

Not all was bad yesterday, Andrew Phillips called about the Halloween party Thursday Night, and also asked me to be one of his best men in wedding! 🙂 Yes, there will be two, the other one being his brother Tory. So that Wedding is June 10th. With Nic’s wedding in July, I’m going to have a very busy summer. Now if only I can get hitched.

Andrew says he’s going to try to introduce me to this girl at the party if she comes, who is a friend of Amy’s who I believe will be in that wedding. Andrew says she’s a really great girl, and has been single her all life like myself. He says she’s really pretty too, so who knows.. worth a shot.

Last night we had group with the kids at Peach Lutheran again. They are such a wild bunch, but I love them regardless. Ryan had to part afterwards, but Bobby and me went to Harvest Moon and talked to Nicole for a couple of hours. Nicole’s home town is Los Angeles. Turns out, I might have actually been to her church when I was down in Simi Valley early this month for Fight Night. Aaron, Justin, and me went to this church that had a huge hill with a white cross on it that was almost caught on fire by all the flames from the disastrous fires that swept that part of California earlier in month. I told Nicole about it and she claims that’s her church. If it is, that’s ridiculously cool.

That’s all for now, like I said I’ve done nothing today. Tonight’s a workout night, not sure if Bobby will be coming over or not, as he’s not even allowed to lift weights for a month by doctor’s orders.
