This is how I feel...

This is what I feel like.

Thank God I only have 2 more weeks left to go on my externship! It is seriously taking a toll on my physical and mental well-being. I am so ready just to be done with it.

It doesn't help that this weekend was like a clusterfuck, chaotic mess at the restaurant! Holy shit, I ran my ass off and I am beat. It wasn't a good kinda busy. I hate when it's like this. Don't get me wrong I'd rather be busy and make money than stand around looking pretty, but when it's crazy insane like it has been, I'm not doing my job. I am not giving good service to people, I am literally throwing food at them and walking away. They're lucky if I make it back in time to refill their drinks. I don't like waiting on people like that. As much as I hate waitressing, I am good at it and I take pride in doing it well.

Of course at the end of the night when I count my money it's all worth it, but I can't get rid of the sinking feeling that customers went away unsatisfied. I don't like that.

But on the bright side...I'm waiting to hear from the insurance company that I interviewed with. Everything seems to be going well. The last step was filling out the online application. Now I play the waiting game. I hate waiting. It's driving me crazy not knowing if they're gonna hire me or not. I just want to know. I hope they offer me a position. If they do, my waitressing days are OVER!

Keep your fingers and toes crossed for me my wonderful "tiny heads", this girl needs all the help she can get!

Hope everyone is enjoying life. No more snow over here in PA, thats a good thing. In fact I think it's going up into the high 40's this week! I cant' wait.

Well I am pooped and I need to crawl my ass into bed and get some sleep!


  1. "Well I am pooped and I need to crawl my ass into bed and get some sleep!"

    Sounds like a plan.

  2. Waitressing over forever? That's big! Fingers crossed. And now... bed :)

  3. Ok...first, I LOVE the photo you use for this post!


    Second, I will keep my fingers, toes, and EYES crossed for you. I know that all your hard work and dedication to this new journey in your life is going to pay off, and that everything will come together just as it should. I just know it!

    So glad to hear that you made some good MOOLA$ this weekend - WOO! WOO!

    Hasn't the weather this weekend been awesome? Spring is just around the corner, you can feel it can't you?

    Sharing lots of "good energy" with ya, my friend!

    Have a great week!

  4. Crossing all things crossable! From one former waitress to a soon to be former waitress!

  5. everything is crossed, even my hair!

    also, I love Fredricks' fishnets, but we don't have them here so I get them mailorder. Philly doesn't have many chain stores, but we are starting to get more and more as zoning laws change.
    I love that you love fishnets too. One more reason that I think we are soulsisters!

  6. I was a waitress for almost a decade before starting my 9-5 about three-and-a-half years ago. I find myself missing the "thrill" of it all, though I don't miss be referred to as "beer bitch" on a regular basis.

    I hope you get this job--fingers crossed!

  7. Thanks for all the crossed body parts my friends! I hope they work, I really really really want this job! I'll keep you updated, as soon as I hear you'll hear!

  8. Good luck with the waiting and I hope you manage to revive your cornflake!
