Quick update on those New Year’s Resolutions

I usually fail miserably by now with most of my New Year’s resolutions, but I’m actually doing okay with mine so far!

Resolution 1: Wash my hair less. So far, so good. I may have gotten a bit lazy and gone a little too long without washing it, which didn’t turn out so well, but I’m back on my every other day schedule and it’s working out for me now.

Resolution 2: Stop letting work stress me out. This is the one I’m having the hardest time with. It’s so hard not to get cranky when people are idiots. Some lady came to my window today when I first opened and I had to void three of her tickets that she claimed were wrong. I rewrote them exactly as she told me and one was STILL wrong. And then she tried to come back two hours later and void another one. SO FRUSTRATING. I don’t know why, but the guests are basically unable to read and call out the wrong numbers all the time.

Resolution 3: Kick my frenemy out of my life. We haven’t texted or emailed since I told him not to, but we do chat at work, more than I would like. I do miss him sometimes so it’s hard to just sit there and ignore him. I think I will be okay as long as we don’t go back to texting.

I realize that I am the most boring person in the world. Sorry about that.

Happy New Year!

It’s 2013! Sometimes I don’t bother with New Year’s resolutions, and sometimes I go too crazy and try to change too much. This year I have a few, but nothing too crazy.

1. Wash my hair less. You’re probably like “wtf?” but let me explain. My hair gets oily enough that I have to wash it every day, but my scalp gets itchy if I do. A few years ago I started washing it every other day and while the oil situation never changed, my scalp felt so much better. But then about two years ago I got a new job and didn’t want to show up for work with gross hair, so I started washing it every day. It was fine up until a few weeks ago, now it’s itchy all the time. 🙁 Dandruff shampoo works, but I reallllly need to go back to the every other day schedule. I’ve learned that if I wash my hair in the morning, I can get two full days of decent hair. It sounds silly but I really hate having oily hair and having to wear it up in a ponytail because I can’t do anything with it.

2. Stop letting work stress me out. Most of the people I work with are not the sharpest tools in the shed, and the guests are even worse. I let their stupid shit bother me too much and it gets to the point where I dread going to work in the morning. I even realize how stupid it is to get all worked up about someone wanting to change their ticket (which is a bigger pain in the ass than it sounds) or taking too long at the window. It’s not healthy to get all ragey over dumb shit, so I need to work on just letting things go.

3. Kick my frenemy out of my life, once and for all. I’ve mentioned a former friend-turned-nemesis many, many times. I know you’re tired of hearing it, but we started talking again. He pisses me off more than anyone else I’ve ever met in my life, and it is so stupid that I would talk to him and be friendly when all I could think about was punching him in the mouth. I intended on writing him an email explaining how I feel, but he is just such a dumb shit that I think it would just go over his head, so instead I just told him I was blocking all forms of communication with him and he is not to speak to me unless it’s about work, at work. I just hope it lasts this time. *fingers crossed*

I am seriously starving. I think I’ll make eggs and toast.
