I started my new job last Thursday at the Great Wolf Lodge, and so far I really like it. I work at the Dunkin' Donuts located inside of the Lodge. My first day, a woman by the name of Sherrie took me around to the downstairs cafe area and introduced me to the Pizza Hut and Bear Paw workers. When she was over at the Pizza Hut cafe, she told a guy that she wanted a pepperoni with sausage and then asked me what I wanted. I told her cheese, but didn't really know what she was doing. Turns out, she was getting the hook up -- free food. Haha. I freaking loved it. At Dunkin' when it's dead, the other employees and myself grab some donuts or a flatbread sandwich. I even caught my manager snagging a donut, too. He was in the back of the shop washing dishes. I noticed that he was chompin' down on something. When he turned to look at me, he had some custard on his chin. HAHA. I totally didn't tell him. |
I LOVE MY MOCHA LATTES. I load them down with extra mocha and I freaking loooove them.
In other news, I'm going to see The Avett Brothers this Saturday and then on Sunday, I'm going to TENNEESSEE with my folks. I'm thoroughly excited.
In other other news, my friend Brooks just came back from Peru the other day. He actually showed up at my workplace today to get himself a coffee. I was getting off work when he came in. We walked out to our cars together and he gave me my birthday gift. I told him NOT to get me anything because I could only afford to get him a $5.00 weird toy from Hot Topic. I was not working when it was his birthday in July, so I was low on cash. And his card was like, $3.00. But I seriously told him not to get me anything because I would feel horrible. And I really meant it. Not like, "Oh, you don't have to get me anything," but secretly wishing they would. No, it wasn't like that at all. But he got me some cool finger puppets -- a grandma, grandpa, mother, and daughter. LOL. He also got me a scarf, sweater, gloves, and a small change purse with awesome designs because the one I normally take with me to the club is broke. I really appreciated the gifts that he got me considering I was too poor to afford to get him anything nice. When I'm in TN next week, I plan on getting him something really awesome to make up for it!
My birthday went well last Saturday. I didn't really have a big gathering because the people I invited didn't show up. I guess everyone assumed that I wasn't celebrating my birthday ON my birthday. I don't know. I didn't let it get me down, because my sister took me to Dave and Busters, and her friend Kim (I've known Kim since I was born, literally) and her boyfriend, Adrian showed up. My friend Bobby came as well. Adrian asked the waiter if we could get the "hook-up" on some game cards, but the waiter just told us of the regular prices on the cards. When he came back from loading Adrian's card with points, he gave me one with 100 points on it, but only to be used on games that didn't shoot out tickets. I was so grateful! I only like the racing games and air hockey anyways. Haha. All in all, I had a great birthday and I plan on celebrating my second birthday this week with Bobby and my other friends if they decide to show up. Haha.
