good days

My first tutoring client is finished up...his parents decided that we were going to take away too much playtime doing it during the week, and she did assure me that it wasn't because of anything i did, but she wants to wait until the summer to start with him. She promised to give me a call once he got out of school in a month.

One of the neighbors got a little boonie puppy. Very cute. Very big responsibility. Crying outside my door at 3 am. The landlord just got rif of all the roosters...now I got a crying puppy.

The other neighbors are moving soon, and so he has been offering me a look at his possessions pre-garage sale. Which is cool I need some basic stuff like pots, pans, sillverware, etc...

Ants have invaded my bread. Tossed it out. They already got my berry surprise cereal. Hopefully the Cheerios are still ok since I hadn't opened them yet...but that's no guarantee.

I had an interview the other day at another resort. It was for a massage position. I am currently the only applicant, they are waiting a few more days and hoping they'll get at least one more. If I get the job, I'll be the only non-Filipino, non-woman working as a masseuse. Minimum wage (4.05 as of May 28th) but benefits and free meals when on the clock. 36 hours a week guaranteed, possibly more depending, plus I guess we get tips. The work load is distributed over 6 days though, 6 hours per day. Only thing is, that 6 hours can be spread out anyway over the day from the hours of 10 am till midnight. So I could have to go in at noon for two hours, then come back at 8 for the last 4. Hmmmm....

Anyways I felt really great and fulfilled after working with Nathaniel. It is that wonderful feeling of doing something for someone else, plus "going to work" always can make me feel useful.

Okay I'm out of time at the internet cafe. Love the person next to you.

P.S. The LSA of Charlotte just contacted me via e-mail to let me know that the NSA restored my administrative rights!
