Unfortunately, the restaurant serves alcohol and where I live, you have to be nineteen to work in a place that serves it, but my birthday is in two months. His personal rules are that you have to be twenty-one to bring it to the table, but that's totally fine because you can trade off with another waitress (you do a favor for them, they do a favor for you). So, on my nineteenth birthday, Mr Fix-It has to tell him to pull my application, I have to have another interview with the owner and at least one of the managers, but I'll have a job as of late September. He even gave me a menu to study so that I can cut training time in half.
Next up in my news, is that we recently had two fires. The outlets were overloaded by the fridge and window a/c unit being plugged into the same one (by an idiot) and one of them caught on fire and blew the fuse. Mom turned it back on and the outlet caught on fire again. So we didn't have power in about half of our house for a few days and now it seems to be fixed. So, I'm sorry that I haven't really been commenting much on your blogs or my replies were short, but I was using my phone since last Thursday morning.
Jax asked me a question in my last post that I promised to answer, in detail, here. The question was, "I love how you have such a practical career dream!! It's something that is so specific that it will be easy to work up towards. All you need is a great marketing plan and some investors. Have you taken any steps towards it yet?"
I have taken some minor steps, such as researching things that I will need and making plans to begin. However, I haven't taken any major steps yet. I can't even open a daycare until I turn nineteen, graduate highschool (which I need a math tutor and a fixed printer to do), have full medical exams to make sure I won't suddenly keel over and die in front of a bunch of kids, take 48 hours of childcare/CPR/first aid classes (it might be 24 hours?), be approved by inspectors, and a few other things. I won't be able to have any ability to get most of this done at the moment.
I also don't have anyone who is going to invest for me. To put it bluntly, the only college fund I ever even had was $300 dollars saved by Grandma, who then spent it all on new clothes (her closet 10 feet by 10 feet and absolutely full, plus she had clothes in the other closets in her house) because she got a new job. There isn't any money for me to have anyone invest and I doubt they would if they could, since they don't think it's a real job. It's going to take me years to save all the money for me to do this, but you know what? If I can do it on my own, then I can prove I can show them all that I will make something of myself.
Right now, it's all about earning my diploma with the highest grade possible and saving money so that I can begin to take the other steps. But that's okay because at least I know what I want and where I'm going, which is a lot more than I had a year ago.
Now... I've been keeping a secret from you all... (Jax, please don't hurt me!)
Do you remember this post? Where I mentioned a friend who works in WalMart? Well... Here's what's going on with that. He's not just a friend. He's been one of my best friends (no, he's not Brother, that's just gross) for about two years and earlier this month, he asked me to be his girlfriend. I didn't tell Momma right away and she's the only blood-relative who reads this blog so I couldn't put it up on here yet. I told her over the weekend and she's totally cool with it (maybe a little nosy...) so I figured it was time to share with you guys since I promised him that I would start writing about him more.
Now before you all form an angry mob, let me also add that my own family (except Momma) doesn't even know. So you guys are pretty special even though I'm not going to go into a shitton of details at the moment because I'm sleepy and I want to see what kind of questions you guys are going to have (since I just know you're going to ask something haha).
My original plan was to write all of that stuff and end it with when Momma and I went to the mall yesterday, but that's a lot of information to throw out there and I'm having a hard time focusing enough to make that just work into an awesome post. So yeah, surprise? haha
