No, really... What's going on?
I try to read all of your entries, but I swear I find myself skimming them to get to a place where I don't feel so swamped reading them. haha.
ok ok, so it's been a very long time and i'm sure everyone is curious as to what i've been up to; right? Well, here it goes =)
Everyone knows I moved to Raleigh, NC. Or at least you know that I was thinking about it. Well I have. I live in Raleigh now! I did move here in hopes that I would date the boy I had met prior to moving here; and I guess technically we did date for a little while. But the bottom line is, he's fucking crazy in the head... And I was over that shit real quick. I'm also not even friends with the girl and guy I knew from maryland, that live here. That's a long story, and I'd rather not get into it, really. I don't hate them, Well I hate Jenn, but not mark. =D
I live in a pretty decent 4 bedroom house in raleigh, with my roommate Shelby and her two teenage daughters; Kisa and Stevie-Rae. Ages 17 and 15. Yes, it's trying at times and yes it's different for me. But I love those girls and nothing in the world could ever make me wish I was anywhere but here with them. I mean, I seriously went from living on my own for 2 years, to living with all girls, and then thrown straight into living with all girls 2 of which are teenagers. haha. But I digress. So we live in town, pretty close to anything we would ever need and I couldn't be happier.
It took me a lot longer than I had anticipated to find work here, I mean I moved in August and I didn't start working until December. Geez. But nothing was right for me, I couldn't find anything; the only hits I could get were really shitty jobs. I worked at a call center for almost a month i think, I didn't even make it onto the call floor, training was really long and drawn out, so I was in training for a while. I mean, I was 4 days away from graduating training at the top of my class... haha... and then I went and got fired because my trainer was an alocholic whore. But whatever, i'm totally not bitter. I would have hated that job.
So then, in December... I found the job I have now. I can honestly say that I really never want to do anything else as long as I fucking live. PERIOD. I wake up every morning excited to go to work, and on the weekends I lay around and wonder why i'm not there. I have the best schedule ever, 8a-5p Monday - Friday. I wake up, wear whatever I want to wear that day, walk out of the house at 7:15, drive to work, get there at 7:45 (sometimes earlier depending on traffic) and i sit outside with some of my co-workers, and drink coffee and smoke cigarettes until 8. Then I stock up on coffee (if I need a refill), walk into the lab where I work... Pull up my comfy little super adjustable mesh chair and prepare mentally for a day full of vulgarities and your mom jokes. (If I had a penis i'd chub up talking about my job)
So I turn on the Computer that sits in front of me, the HDTV that sits beside it, and the XBOX 360 that sits beside that and grab the controller from the table. That is where I'll stay for 9 hours a day (except for smoke breaks and you know, lunch, and when I get up to walk around or get something to drink)
I work for a company called Redstorm Entertainment. You may have heard of us if you play video games at all. Our company was founded by Tom Clancy, and in conjunction with Ubisoft... we make some of the best video games out there right now. I, personally don't make them. I just make sure that by the time they hit the shelves; they are playable. And by that I mean that I am a video game tester. (insert, wow you play video games all day and get paid for it? comments here) I guess technically I do play video games and get paid for it. But testing is pretty hard work. I mean, granted, it's a video game. It is hard work, but it's not that bad, I like to pretend my job is wicked hard, because my boss always says "There's no fun in testing!" and... "If you're playing the game, you're not testing the game; if you're not testing the game, you aren't doing your job" but i'm doing one hell of a job at it; and I have the best time of my life every day. hehe.
I work with some of the best people ever. Seriously. There's nothing better than working with the biggest geeky gamer boys ever. The coolest part is... Every single one of us know what it was like to be picked on growing up, as we are pretty much all the biggest losers ever. BUT, they are some of the smartest people i've ever met; and a few of them... pretty fucking cool. (not to mention absolutely fucking hot.) It doesn't hurt that i'm the only girl there, although it's totally a catch 22. I'm the girl, so i have to work twice as hard to get respect and prove myself. But, i have a vagina (which most of those guys have never seen) So it makes them a little nicer to me. haha. Sadly, the few boys that are wicked hot and super cool... Have seen plenty of vagina's before so really it's just about me working twice as hard to earn respect and prove myself. Which i've pretty much done. I can honestly say none of those guys want another girl in the room. They are all pretty happy with me, i mean... I have some of the most vulgar language and i get the best your mom jokes ever. What's not to love?
Anyway, i can't really think of much more to talk about other than work and i'm sure that you're already tired of hearing about that. So i guess i'll go play some Splinter Cell and call it a night. k?
I love you guys, I swear i've been reading. I just haven't had much time to catch up. But i'm working on it... K?
Christin, She's beautiful. I'm sorry I haven't commented yet, but she is. (My best friend here in Raleigh, and his girlfriend are expecting so now i'm all EEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeee over it hehe) Take care of you and yours. <3
Amy, I love you.
Becci, I'm proud of you.
Suzy, I'm still in secret love with you.
