Time. Who needs it. Not me. I made over $14/hour again last night at the second job. I'm busting ass. Gotta make as much as I can. I got a call also, from a health care place for an interview I applied with last week. Then I applied today at a financial office too, down the street from work. It pays about $4 more an hour than I make currently. Which equals awesome!

There is also talk on the street, that they are trying to raise our grade levels at work, and get us all raises. We are executive assistants yet almost the lowest grade level in the company. 'Splain that one to me. The girl that is leaving, my dept. has been here 7 years and makes $1.86 more than me. This is the problem with big companies. She also told our big boss, that she isn't the only one looking to leave, and that we are all working two jobs. Which, three out of 6 secretaries are. The only reason the others arent, is because they are married. I can't forsee getting that much more money, so a raise will be nice and all, and will help me until I find another job. Besides, getting a raise at my current job will not be noticeable once I get health insurance.

So, I am being proactive in bettering my financial situation, which will in turn allow me to move. I'm doing what I can, and that's OK by me. What's meant to happen will happen, and until then, I just gotta keep on keepin on!

Last night when I got home from the second gig, I worked out til 12am, mopped the kitchen, did dishes, dusted, cleaned litterboxes, cleaned dog ears/eyes, bathed, and brushed a cat. At 1 am I layed down to watch intervention and woke up at 3:30 and went to bed. I passed. The. Fuck. Out.

Have I mentioned, that I am going to pick my Momma up this weekend? She is staying with my Auntie in P.A. I love her and all but she will complain that my house isn't clean enough, even though it is pretty clean. I am only home for two hours a night, and I am always doing something. She doesn't really understand that. The upside is my house will be clean, because she will do it for me. And, she will get to meet the man, which I can't wait for. What I also can't wait for, is to see him tonight! He sent me the cutest message this morning, and told me he's glad he met me. I'm so totally in love with him, I can't stand it.

Good luck on the job hunt. If you are patient and selective, you will find a good fit. I hope you get a raise and health insurance. Health insurance is nice to have!

I wish I could make $14 an hour.
