Feeling strange

Despite being really excited about getting my dresser and nightstand today I was really down and had no one to talk to. As much as I wanted to talk to someone and rant and rave about what was bugging me I didn't. I decided to try to just deal by myself. But then my uncle called and we swapped stories and sadness and angst and laughs and jokes and I felt a bit better.

Still... I feel like there is something else bothering me. I have literally been awake for about 34 hours straight. Last night I couldn't fall asleep and today I was too busy cleaning and rearranging my room.

I have to work an 8am-8pm shift tomorrow so I need to force myself to sleep tonight. So that's what I'll do.

At some point you're tired of talking...

I have this co-worker and she is seriously really not all there in the head. She's so dingy and ditzy sometimes and she acts so ducking stupid like she has bad understanding of things and its really pissing me off the more I work with her. I'm glad that this is almost over and I will be starting a new job soon. But still.

She's a nice person and everything but she majorly SUCKS to work with. She's constantly fiddling with her phone. She's constantly sighing. She acts like she doesn't want to do anything half the time but gets mad when they don't train her or move her up from the kennel area. And it's not that they don't train her. They been training her since December but she doesn't show initiative. She doesn't retain anything they show or tell her. And half the time when she is supposed to be shadowing she is standing by the computers messing around on Facebook or texting. I've tried to show her how to fill out the paperwork for lab work and instead of paying attention to me she's looking at other people.

I've tried to teach her several times how to properly restrain an animal so that she or the person she's working with wont get injured and yet she doesn't do it. People have to continuously correct her.

You're basically in a lose-lose with her. Either she restrain for you and you quite possibly get a dog or cat that is going to bite you, scratch you up, flail, thrash, take off running with you being dragged behind, or all of the above at the same damn time. And if you're the person restraining she's not going to really give you a chance to get adjusted before she starts messing with the dog or pulling on the dog this making it agitated and worked up to the point you can't do anything until the animal calms down or you have to keep yelling at her to leave the animal alone, let it take a break, actually walk away from her WITH the animal in tow, or all I the above at the same damn time again!!!

You ask her to do something she would go off and do something else so that in the end you just do it yourself. She takes forever to do simple things. For example today while she bathed ONE DOG another coworker and I trimmed nails and expressed anal glands one FIVE dogs before she was even finished bathing that one. Then I decided to bathe a dog in the groomer tub while she bathed one on the kennel tub. Her dog was a pretty calm yellow lab and I had a chubby uncooperative English bulldog. She started her lab BEFORE I started my bulldog and I finished before her. In fact she didn't finish her dog until five minutes after me and I even blow dried the dog I had.

Want to know why she finished after me because she's too busy playing on her phone. Never mind the other big strong dogs that need baths as well.

As a kennel tech when you walk the dogs you're supposed to look at what they are doing. Make sure they're isn't anything unusual with them. That their stool is normal. That they aren't straining. She does none of that. She walks and messes on her phone the entire time!! If the dog has worms or bloody stool she wouldn't fucking know because she never looks. One time another girl actually had to tell her that the dog she walked had bloody diarrhea.

It really is fucking annoying.

To rewrite or not to rewrite?

I have an aunt who is in love with my fanfic "Coffee Shop Girl" and often begs me to rewrite it to take it from fanfic to original story. I've thought about it several times and I just can't really wrap my mind around the concept. I love that story too but it is still floating around in the fandom since there is no way of getting it removed from SPARK (even if I wanted to rewrite it). *sighs*

Just one of those conundrums.

Anyway I'm trying to get back into my writing mojo. I noticed I haven't written anything new for Misadventures in nearly 4 years!!! I'm currently plotting part 3 hopefully it won't take long for me to write.
