Crap. Am I allowed to write about stupid crap yet on my blog or are we all still focused on Haiti?
Because I’m all about helping the Haitians. But my life is currently filled with stupid crap.
You guys won’t be all, “Crystal, how about you just be happy you have food at all and stop complaining out your stupid love affair with soda?” will you?
Speaking of. Coke is so delicious.
Soda. Pop. Brown stuff.
It’s de.freaking.liciousness in liquid form mixed with sprinkles of happiness.
I’ve been avoiding cokes lately seeing as how they’re basically dripping with calories and sugar and extra inches on my waist. But I had one with lunch today because I was as tired as a two-year old after a day at the zoo and I didn’t want to be a party popper for my amazing friends Tom and Sarah. (Hi Tom! Hi Sarah!).
I only drank about 75 percent of it, but it was just the right amount to wake me up without giving me the shakes. I don’t think I’m addicted the way I used to be. I think I’m finally at a point where I can have just one, or none at all and be cool with my meal. It’s a place that’s taken me 11 years to find.
But today. Man, that 75 percent of a glass of coke was awesome.
And then! When I crashed from the sugar of it all, I took a nap.
Remember naps? They’re best taken on Sunday afternoon after or during some sort of football game.
When I woke up from my hour of slumber I could see the world clearly again.
There it was. My life. In focus.
Or at least closer to focus.
Speaking of life. I need to get a second job.
And I by “need,” I mean “I’m not planning to pay my January car payment until I get a second job and then get paid by that job” need.
My schedule at the paper (where I get my health insurance from) is about as random as an iPod shuffle, so I have to find something that fits. A friend suggested early morning hours, like 5 a.m. to 9 a.m., which I figure would cut my current six hours of sleep a night to four.
I could totally function on four hours of sleep right?
Or tutoring. Does anyone know where I can get a job tutoring? I have a master’s degree! How much does that even pay?
I used to have big plans of working at Hooters a sports bar, calculating exactly where I’d like my body to be for just such a position, but then God found out and made me sprain my ankle, so toning up hasn’t really happened so much and now I’m thinking that’s not in the cards.
Anyway, suggestions on how to make (legal) extra money are currently welcome. And don’t worry, I know the world currently is filled with hopelessness and unemployment and horrible, horrible things in Haiti. And I am happy to have a job at all.
Mostly happy anyway.
