suhhhh dudes. life has been 7/10.

> work <
theyve been putting me on drive more (last week i was on drive 3 times). i was kinda :/ about it at first, but i dont mind it as much now because i have the experience and feel more confident on it. on the 3rd day i didn't make any mistakes (not to say that i make mistakes a lot, its just occasional little things like remembering to repeat the order back to them, queue up drinks, etc.) time management, speed, proactivity, and communication are some key parts of drive i noticed, and those are all areas i can def improve in, so now when i see im on drive im not like aaaaaa. plus i think drive is one of those areas in which how well it goes depends on who im working with (theres usually 2 people on drive). like on the 3rd day, i was with J, so that made it easier.
BUT if im on drive with AC, like i was yesterday, well, it kinda sucks. AC is prob like the one coworker who i dont really like (aside from KD, cause even tho i havent had a bad experience with him yet cause i hardly work with him, pretty much everyone dislikes him cause hes lazy and yells at people). AC is one of those people who are... idk, superficial? insincere? also hes hypocritical, lazy, and likes to act superior (hes 16, the only way in which he is superior to me is that hes worked longer). if that wasnt enough, he wears gold chains and vapes (at work...). i mean its not a big deal, if this guy is the worst person i have to work with then im p lucky. so yesterday, like, right when we hit the dinner rush, AC decides to go to the bathroom for, no lie cause i was looking at the clock, nearly 20 mins. so ive got to take orders AND tender, meaning its literally impossible for me to make the custard that the customers order (OG should have been doing that, but he was up front not really doing much of anything). my ham is getting progressively steamed throughout this time. finally he comes back and hes like "is any of this made?" and i said "no, dude, its literally impossible for me to make it cause im tendering AND taking orders in the middle of a rush." i had kind of a Tone cause i was Mad and the manager walked by right as i said it lol OOPS. so AC takes over tendering/taking orders while i run around make long-overdue custard.
D sometimes jokes with me, "woah kathleen, you're up here, im gonna need you down here, okay?" doing the accompanied hand gestures and all. he says this when im just quietly doing my work, and we laugh about it. well yesterday he said it and really meant it lmao. when we closed that night, we talked about how it was a shitty day. but ive def had worse lol.

they also had me close front again, which i would say i did a p good job at (ive only closed it once before). yesterday i was supposed to be trained in shake machine, but we got hard slammed so there wasnt enough time :/ looking at my schedule this week, i thiiiink sunday is when i will be trained in the kitchen (cause sunday morning is when the usually train people in kitchen, and K said i would be trained in the kitchen in a few weeks, a few weeks ago). its a good sign to me that theyre training me in more stuff, cause i really wanna learn and Git Gud so i can help out where im needed.

like 2 weeks ago i was closing with AW and it was lit, i impressed him with my music knowledge :') in the dining room they play 80s and 90s music (80s i know, but 90s is just ??? to me), and so we're wiping down tables and stuff. over the speakers, in order they played is this love by survivor, too much time on my hands by styx, synchronicity II by the police, and walk of life by dire straits. all bands i Know and Love. so i said, "yooo, this is a bop. is this love, by survivor, from their album when seconds count. '86 i think?" and hes like wtf how do u know that. next song, i say, "this is one of my favorites from styx, too much time on my hands, from their 1981 concept album paradise theater." and he asked what a concept album was, and i told him about concept albums, and paradise theater, which is about a (former) theater in chicago. i also talked about how styx is in this weird limbo between prog and mainstream rock, and how theyre not really respected by either camp. he accused me of using shazam when he wasnt looking lmao. i told him if its from the 80s i can probably name it. he said, "then what about this one?" and synchronicity II played, and so the streak continued with me telling him about the police's final album and how sting and steward copeland nearly came to blows while recording the album. then walk of life came on and i talked about how brothers in arms is a very well mixed album, and mark knopfler one of the greatest guitarists ever. so p much the entire night were talking about music and stuff. i gave him my discord. and like 2 days ago, AC was trying to pawn off his drive headset, he asked who wanted it (no one) and AW says, Quote, "i wouldn't mind working with kathleen" (me, in my head: ????!?!?!/?!?/!?/1////?) so yeah for the last hour of the night it was me and AW on drive.

i met an employee from another location, he was really nice and chatty!

i got a 6$ tip a few days ago, and some old dude gave me a 1$ tip for taking his money at the drive thru?? shit man ill take it

also were getting more new hires!!! last monday J and me were eavesdropping on the interviews and judging them lol. im excited to meet these new people :>

> other stuff <
standard discipline issues. how do i do things. help. waaah.
i want a bf. or a gf. where can i buy one
trying to lose weight. ive been the same weight, just cause i havent been trying. eh idk.

im gonna register for college quite soon, hopefully start in the fall, but if i cant get an appointment w/ the financal aid guy by the deadline, ill go next year. i wanted to go Far Away for college, but after Thinking about it, im gonna go to the local community college for my 2yr degree, cause i wanna stay at my job for as long as possible, and its Cheap. looking at the classes, they offer some really cool stuff. music theory (from beginner to, like, Super Advanced), music literature (HECK YES?), class guitar (for beginner guitarists), class voice (for beginner singers), etc. so if i take classes like these im kinda forced to have discipline, yanno? and its easier to learn these things in a class as opposed to doing it myself online and not knowing where to start.
i would Love to write my own music and stuff. so having this knowledge is the best place to start.

i decided im gonna start driving (i havent driven since i got my permit in june. it expires june 2019). im Dying of nervousness, but i feel like its something i can conquer, or at least try to. i want the independence of being able to drive, plus, it will make things 1000% easier. i cant start yet b/c one car's broken, the other has no airbags, and the third is hardly available cause my dad uses it to go to work. maybe on the weekend when my dad is home, he can take me driving (it will be less stressful driving w/ him as opposed to my mom). so Yeah.

parting gift for you, one of my favorite king crimson songs, in the wake of poseidon. ive been ingesting more prog rock lately (genesis, yes, elp, etc.) its litty.

so i realized something. i tracked when i played guitar, and tried to remember the times that i played it often, and theres a Pattern. i play more when i have more free time. which sounds obvious, but... it was never really the lack of free time that was preventing me from playing, it was the fact that i do so much in a day that i just dont have the brain space to play. im too exhausted. but when im off school, or can't sleep, etc., i play more. keeping this in mind, im gonna practice more bc i have more free time (See Next Paragraph). also when i play guitar, i tend to get a bit sidetracked and end up researching all this cool music knowledge and stuff. a lot of it goes over my head (music theory GAGS) but its soooo interesting. so when i say im gonna practice guitar, i should say im gonna practice... Music.
i struck a deal with my school, cause im done with all my work, i only have to come to school 1 day a week (just so they make sure im not dead in a gutter somewhere idk). i decided to go on wednesdays, im also starting voice lessons again after like 2months, which are also on a wednesday. so i changed my work availability to any time of day for all days except wednesday and sunday (sunday b/c both my dad and sis are home, and i hardly ever see either of them, plus i just want one day where i can do nothing if i want to).
DL's gf is stopping by for a few days in the beginning of may. i feel lots of things about this, most of which are not happy feelings. idk.
but for tonight and tomorrow, i have no school or work, so im just gonna listen to prog rock, play wow and overwatch, practice guitar/pursue other musical endeavors, and try my best to keep a positive attitude.
p.s. speaking of prog rock and musical endeavors, this song is C A P T I V A T I N G guys. dog's life by gentle giant. i was like, wtf is that instrument making that awesomely beautiful sound all throughout the song??? well it's called a regal, an organ that was popular during the renaissance era (so of course gentle giant would be rockin it).

work was frickin great guys. thanks to Heavy Rain, we had so few customers it was like a monday. apparently i cleaned the most things (it was for some spring cleaning challenge, all i know is i was cleaning shit in my downtime and checking it off a list) so i got to choose a Prize. all the prizes were trash. except for one... A RECORDER. i played it during closing. didnt sound too bad.
so it was p much just DL and i up front the entire day, bored as heck. we assigned d&d character alignments to our fellow employees. DL dared me to dare him to naruto run food out to customers. i did, and he did. and he got a tip.
AND THE BEST THING,,,,, towards the end of the night, DL asked who all was closing, and looking at the roster, i said "aw yeah this is an all-star lineup" and DL agreed and then was like, "by the way, in these past few months you've worked here, you've been ace" and im like awww wtf thats so nice and he coNTINUES hes like "im super glad we hired you. you're awesome. unlike some others." me: (has flashbacks to this one employee who worked here for like a week, stole money from the charity jar, and was on his phone all the time) and im like "wtf this is so nice im gonna cry rn" so its litty.
i think the funniest thing was, JM was in the kitchen, and he left at 8. before he left, he checked his phone, lookin real happy. DL and i are like ooo whats up?? and JM says "its official, im goin to disney world this summer." and were like "oh cool" etc. and he goes "yup. ya boy's gonna get hammered on splash mountain. PEACE." and leaves. im just like... "hes gonna teach children."

so RG is now an official, bona-fide shift leader, and it was her first day as Manager On Duty. so shes assigning Tasks to people. she gives me bathrooms (yay.jpg) while apologising for giving me bathrooms cause its my least favorite. i told her "it's your job to tell me what to do!!" and shes like "OH GOD YOU'RE RIGHT IT IS" lol so at like 8 im cleaning the bathrooms, w/e. im nearly finished when i see a crumpled-up paper towel i missed. i Pick It Up and nearly scream because hey guess what, spider. so im like screw this and i skedaddle. go back to RG and tell her the harrowing tale of the spider. she asked if it looked poisonous and i said "i dont know but it was big and black." AT THIS POINT my CRUSH, DL, happened to be walking by. he just gives me this Look and im like "no its not, like... it's, uh, you know..." DL: "do i wanna know?" and i say "just stay away from the women's bathroom cause theres a spider in there." and he goes "ah, well, there go my plans for the evening." so were chatting about how much we hate spiders and hes like "yeah may as well just set the place on fire, honestly."
i also learned that DL steals those "employees please wash your hands" signs in bathrooms. he was talking about how he pilfered one from the mall last night and i was like "how many do you have" and he goes "23." well manager CL was walking by and he said jokingly "did you just commit to a felony?" and DL was like "please dont turn me in i have some real nasty priors"
ahh man. im at the point in my life where i frickin want a bf/gf. honestly i think that, with DL, its More Than A Crush. he has a gf who used to work at culvers, and lives in the next state over. i mean i really like spending time with DL, cause hes funny as heck, really cute, and we like the same things and stuff. even if i haven't gotten over my crush or w/e, it doesn't really hurt me too much when i remember he has a gf, cause we're still friends, after all. ive never felt this head-over-heels before, so im just enjoying the feeling, looking forward to when we work together, or talk or things like that. ofc i would love to be something more, but i like to see him happy too. hmmm idk. this shit is complicated

A, K, C, T were all like aaa whats going on?? their faces when i show them whos at the window. guys. it was priceless. so were all just frickin petting these perfect doggos while the woman's food is being made. my night went from 4/10 to 99/10.

reasons i dont like working drive thru:
1) the blast of weed stink that smacks u in the face when they roll up to the window
2) static-y headset = exacerbates tinnitus = RRRRRRRR "i'm sorry sir, can you repeat that?"
3) making custard... im Sticky...
pls just put me on dining or register :(
