A New Job, GPS and Glasses

I’ve been really busy lately and haven’t been posting as much as usual, sorry! I will try to remedy that after Thanksgiving. Scratch that, after Black Friday because I have to work that day too.

My new job has had me working everyday. Not long hours, which is fine with me but I’ve been busy. For those curious, the job is as a pizza delivery girl. I’m not saying which company, but the outfit is much less hot than this one pictured here. I don’t remember if I mentioned it on here, but I used to work for a pizza company as a delivery girl back when I was in college. I made really good tips because it was a college town and I’m pretty nice.

I’m grateful to have found a job around here because I’ve been looking for a very long time for one. It seems to be all about “who you know” rather than “what you know.” Apparently having a Bachelor’s degree from an actual university means little unless you’re related to someone hiring or knows someone really well to whom is hiring. Quite sad and unfair but it is reality.

Obviously it isn’t my dream job. I want to write professionally for a living, but that is hard to do. I’m going to continue to write as a freelancer and on Associated Content and ghost writing for the company I’m with for that. I also plan to start writing my novel again when I can.

The area I’m delivering in is pretty nice. The people who work there are cool and helpful. The only thing I really dislike is the AWFUL street sign placements (if they are up even) in Alabama. It is terrible. The signs don’t go like logical street signs would be placed. No, it is backwards and confusing and I just can’t seem to get used to it.

I resorted to buying a GPS before Black Friday. I plan on returning it anyways since 2/3 orders I went to last night weren’t even listed on the map on the GPS. Thanks for nothing Garmin! Hopefully I can buy one cheap online on Friday. I really don’t have the time to go early in the morning anywhere (though it may still happen).

Tomorrow I have off, but I have to go get an eye exam and I’m 99% sure I will need glasses. I’ve never had a real eye exam. So, I’m a little scared. Things are kind of blurry far away and it is hard for me to read some things far away too. I just hope that if I do need glasses (which I do) I’ll find some frames that look good on me where I’m going.

After the exam, I’m going to see New Moon – finally! I’m excited. I’ll post more on that tomorrow!

Eye exams are cake, the Dilating drops suck tho, there isnt any better map than Garmins, so you maybe screwed there!

I don't know what the eye tests are like in USA but in the UK they are ok and painless. I managed to find cheaper glasses online but you can't try them on so I would shop around and find out what suits you and see if you can get them cheaper online.

I prefer the GPS on my Verizon cell phone. It is updated constantly. It even gives you up to the minute traffic reports. The GPS units like Garmin are only updated when you connect it to your PC and somketimes you have to pay for it. Good luck in your job search though.

I wanted to be a pizza delivery girl once... rather be a cashier though.
Good luck with the eye test!

Congrats on your new job!

I love the GPS built into my husband's new car. Unfortunately we hardly drive his car anywhere so it will never get used. I will get one when I trade next year. i think it'll be very helpful when traveling.

Good luck on your glasses hunt. There are some really cool styles out there. I'm sure you'll find something you like.

Happy Thanksgiving!!
