No stress for you..*pluah*

Today I realized something. I may be crazy in thinking this, but I think there's some truth to it. Today during work I dropped like a thousand things, and I didn't get frustrated or embarrassed or stressed out by it. I also heard people at work today complaining about how today was the stressful day. I thought to myself... what the heck is stressful about today. Then I realized that I do not get stressed by things other people do. Like dropping crap, having crabby customers, deciding what college to attend, what I'm going to do in life. It takes a lot for me to get stressed out, and I just thought that was something that I might share with you. Well, that's about all my brain can handle at this late hour, so ADIOS AMIGOS!

Guitars, guitars, guitars...

So I have a 12-string guitar that I play for church. About 4 months ago, I broke a sting on it, didn't bother to replace it, and kept playing anyways. Then about two months ago I broke another string. I stopped playing it. I planned on getting a new set of strings that week, but you know how things work with me. I didn't get new strings until 2 weeks ago, and didn't put them on until this morning. OYE! On Thursday night band practice, Super Suave broke a bass string, and of course I didn't have a replacement one. I'm gonna have to buy a new set of bass strings this week... we'll see if that happens.
Other than that, "Barefeet" is playing 5 songs for the upcoming Gathering (Monday, May 28th @ 7:00PM). YOU SHOULD GO! If you don't, I'll rip your throat out.

So I work at Supervalu. I started as a bagger, but moved to the grocery(stocking) department. When I moved to my new department, I was supposed to get a raise to 7 bucks. So about a month ago, for some odd reason, I looked at the details on my check. It said I was getting paid $6.75. Yeah, a quarter may not seem like a big deal, but it was to me. So i looked at all of my old pay-check stubs, and none of them said I was getting paid 7 bucks. So that's been for like the past 4 months at least that I've been getting under-paid. So that one quarter an hour adds up. So I tell the store manager and he says he'll take care of it. It's been a month and my checks still aren't right! UH! Its started to get really frustrating.
My next story about work is that I signed up for direct deposit for my check like a month ago and it's still not working. It should only take two weeks, so that's frustrating me even more.
My third story about work (and my last) is about picking up my last paycheck. Here it is: I go into work and pick up my check, open it up, and see it's for 129.65. Not bad. I look at my wage and it says 775. Too far, it's only supposed to be 7. so i go look for the store manager, he's not there. whatever, i'll talk with him later. so i go to the bank and as i grab the door to walk in, i look at the name on the check and it says "ANTHONY AIELLO." Yeah, that's not my name. So i go back and pick up the right check and guess what... it's the exact same amount. My paycheck is 129.65 so i could have cashed his check and it wouldnt have mattered.
HOLY COW! How much more crap can happen at my work? I guess I'll keep you posted on what crazy crap happens next.
-OH ONE MORE THING! the guys i work with want to have a "Supervalu Dodgeball Tournement" at my church sometime soon. we'll see how that works out.
That's all folks!

my bad...

So I've been pretty mean lately. I've been dealing with some stressful things, and I havent been dealing with it too well. So I wanted to say I'm sorry if I've been rude or mean to you in the past few weeks. I dont want to get into the details of what's been bothering me, but I've been stressed out. So I'm sorry if I've done anything offensive to you. Usually when i deal with stressful situations, I either let go of the stress right away or I hold it inside and let it out somewhere else later. I've been slacking on that last part of letting it out somewhere else. I'm gonna try workin on that a little bit. SOOOO hopefully I'll be a little nicer and in a better mood (if your lucky)

Also, I'm going to start one of those read-the-bible-in-a-year things. I've kind of attempted this before (kind of, sort of). This time around I'M GOIN ALL THE WAY. I'll let you guys know how I'm doin on this in a couple days/weeks.

ahh... It's ten o clock on a wondrous Monday night. Tis beautiful outside, but I get to stay inside to work on gay hw. That's right! I'm actually doing hw. We should have a celebration. I'm getting like not A's in school, so I actually gotta do some work. I've got one serious case of senior-itus. Yeah, i used to think people were so lame when they claimed to have this condition--i thought it was a lame excuse. Maybe it is, but either way I've got it. Hopefully I'll get the hang of it though. OH! I got my hair-cut... check out myspace to see the pics... even though you cant really tell, BUT GO LOOK ANYWAY! Alright, back to my hw.

Well, I just got my graduation crap. I'm throwing it all together and trying to come up with a list of people to send them to. At first I wasn't too thrilled about this whole "graduation" junk, but now I'm kind of getting into it. Now that I think about it, I'm looking forward to getting hundreds of thousands of presents from my family and friends (especially my friends).
In case you don't know, which I know you don't know, my graduation party will be June 2 from 2-6ish in the gym at Baptist Tabernacle. We're going to hire decorators, caterers, dancers, strippers, singers, stunt entertainers, celebrities, and... okay, we're not hiring any of those. We're just going to have some food and maybe some games or things to entertain.
That's all for now... until next time...
