I just need to vent. I am not really looking for any real answers, just someone who will listen. It feels like no one wants to listen anymore. Plus, everyone I know is dealing with their own stuff and I do not wish to trouble them with my own problem
Today was another big day. I had my job interview today! They hired me too! This means that I will be working full time starting next Monday. I want to cry. I am happy to be working and earning money but what about my school work? How am I going to find the time to do it? I am so worried... I won't give up though! I know there's people out there who work full time and are students full time. There are people out there who work so hard they barely get 5 hours of sleep at night. If they can do it, then I can too! I can't give up! I'll admit though... I am tired. I am really going to miss my free time....

I made some chocolate covered strawberries since it's Valentines season. They turned out perfectly! I like my strawberries without the stems, so I cut those off and then dipped them into the chocolate. I can't wait to try them!

Today Pooky seemed to be doing better emotionally but he is worried about his root canal. Since I am working now, I am going to try to get that day off so I can be there for him. I hope once this is all over with, Pooky will be happier.

Right now I am in Pooky's office with a candle lit and some smooth night jazz playing in the background. It helps me to relax. The lavender bag I have sitting on my table also helps.

Tomorrow I have to go turn in some paperwork, make some phone calls, and go for a background check if they can get me scheduled in time (all for my new job). Honestly, I am nervous about this job... but who isn't when they first start? I was told that I could do my homework while working which was why I applied. If that is not the case then I shall have to look elsewhere, which is okay because I still have a few more options to pick from. This one paid the most, which was why I chose it ,but it is also full time (the others were part time). I have never had a full time job before so this is a first for me. I hope I will balance my time well.... I will try my best!

For now, I should really get some homework done. My anxiety is through the roof over it, but what else is new? I hate school. University is a scam. You pay thousands and go into debt and all for what? You could make more with a simple 2 year degree, but they don't tell you that in high school (or at least mine didn't). At my high school they told us that unless you get a 4 year degree you can forget about making a decent wage. If I had known then what I do now, I would have just learned one of the trades at a simple technical school. My college debt makes me want to cry. I am so close to graduating though, I can't turn back now, especially with all of the debt I've got because of it. No sense going into debt for nothing right? Might as well get a degree out of it.
