two birds with one stone!

remember those things i wanted to accomplish this summer? two of things were 1. find a job so that i could afford to 2. see the ridiculously large number of movies i wanted to from now until august. well, my friends, it seems i have found an amazingly simple solution to this problem... working at the movie theater.

now, some of you may know that i actually ventured down this road way back in the winter of 2005, almost did the summer of '06, thought about it the summer of '07, and here i am once again, in the summer of '08, and it looks like it's ripping tickets and selling popcorn for me, again!

granted, the only legitimate time i worked there in said winter of '05, i did end up quitting hardly a month later, but that was during senior year of hs and things were crazy and the hours and frequency of those hours was certainly more than i could handle with a full schedule that included AP history with crazy Savage.

now, in the summer, when i desperately need the money to pay off what seems like my never-ending credit card bill and get to see all those damned movies that are calling my name to sit in the theater and spend 90-120 minutes of life watching, it will certainly be enough for me to handle. plus, i have nearly 2 years of crazy aramark concessions under my belt, along with 6 months of waitressing, and ask any waitress and she'll tell you that once you've done that, you can pretty much do anything!

oh, i might have mentioned that the getting to see all those movies part was not me sneaking away when i was supposed to be sweeping to catch various parts of various ones, but that as an employee i am allowed two free passes a week for either me and a friend or myself twice. and i love my friends, but with the record number of movies i plan on attending in such a short amount of time, it might be more often than not that both those passes are getting used on numero uno here. sorry, guys. i still love you, though!

so, i foresee this all as a good thing that's going to work out. of course, i say that now, but there is always the possibility that in no time flat i'll be coming back here to rant about rude customers, ridiculous hours, and lazy co-workers (or maybe cute ones!), but let's hope not! (except the cute co-worker part :-P )

p.s. sara is gone, and it is so lonely without her! let's hope i'm doing filling in this gap without her justice!
