Long day, and I have to wait tables tonight. I've been hoping for a night on the floor during the week for a while now, but now that it's here, I'm dreading it. I'm tired and really wish I could have just stayed at school a couple more hours and finished the mountain of work I have to do. But I'm bringing a small mountain of that work into the restaurant tonight in the chance that we're not busy. But, really, I'm hoping that it's a nice steady night and that I make $100. I won't hold my breath, though.
I've been having some thoughts lately of quitting the second job. I'm just getting too old to be working so much, even if I am getting ahead on bills bit by bit. Today, I heard about an opportunity to teach twilight school - after school until 5pm - that would probably give me more money than waiting tables does. We'll see.
I'm really in a bad mood lately. I can't seem to get caught up with my work, rarely see my friends, and am frustrated by a lot of things going on at both my jobs. At school, I find that I have a real animosity for my supervisor. The reason? She's lazy. Not really a good reason for animosity, but it's there. I don't see anyone there, either. I hate having 7th period planning because I'm exhausted by the time 7th period comes. The second job is making me angry because there are only four waiters there and I'm one of them, so I never can get a weekend night off. There are apparently no qualified unemployed servers in the Baltimore area because he's not getting any applications from people with experience. This is frustrating even though I do need the money, but I also need the time off.
The date hasn't called me back yet, either. I thought it went well. Boo.
