> 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.
