I can barely stand to be at work today. I am so sick of this job. I do the same stuff everyday to keep this lab running and get paid the same per hour as the high school students working in the lab for the summer. I can't even make $1000 a month if I work 40 hours a week, which is all I am allowed to work. I thought I would learn a lot working in a lab like this, but I haven't really learned anything that will help me in my future career. I have probably made a few good contacts, but I don't want to work in a lab so I am not sure how much good they are going to do me. I am seriously thinking about looking for another job. One that pays better for sure. The one thing I really like about this job is the flexibility of my schedule, but I know I am spoiled and should get used to the idea that being able to set your own schedule is not the norm. I have no money in my savings account and about that much in my checking account and my rent and bills are due soon. I am so sick of having this same problem every month. I found a job where I can work 20 hours a week and make about 2/3 what I can make working 40 hours a week here. After I graduate I don't even know if they will offer me a full-time position here as an RA. I don't know that I would be any happier at another job right now, but I am frustrated with this place.

I have an iPod!!!!!

My sister called my on Monday to tell me my iPod arrived. I was confused because I didn't even know I was getting an iPod. My mom and I had talked about it, but I told it wasn't necessary, so I didn't think she actually bought me one. She got it using one of our friends educators discount. He ordered iPods for Lexsea, me and hopefully himself and possibly Corey. I know Corey was there because I could here him talking in the background when my mom called me.

The one I got holds 4GB and is green! My mom even had my name put on it because it was free. I personally would rather not have my name on it, but I am not paying for the iPod so I won't complain too much :p

I am going to look at fun accessories for it now!

Check this out. Shawn showed it to me at work yesterday and we were probably annoying everyone with our laughing!!!

I was going to post, but I don't think I an organize my thoughts enough right now to write anything coherent. I was going to complain about my dad, but I am not even sure where to begin. I just got an email from him which made me realize he knows nothing about my financial situation. He says he will help me when I need it i.e using the credit card to by gas and groceries, but then when I do, he complains about not having the money to cover it. I know where much of his money has gone over the last year so I don't feel bad spending a little of his money to get by. Maybe I will get into the details later, but right now I need to get back to work.
