Unwritten song
Yesterday (V-Day) was my last day at that horrid place also known as my job. Great. It was okay :). My cake decorator called off, so I did both baking and cake decorating yesterday. I'm gonna miss a few people, but now it's time to move on!

Before I left my job I made sure that I would have enough money to pay off all of my bills, and I do! I'm almost done paying for everything, too.
--Indiana University Bursar account
--Loyola Hospital
--Bloomington Hospital (they haven't taken the money from my account yet)
--Target Red Card
--Clout Visa Card

I'm gonna get rid of my two credit cards and get one new card. After paying for all of this shit I won't have much money left for myself, but that's okay :).

So! I'm trying to see if I could move to IN in about six months. I'm gonna start looking for a new job now, and I'm interested in working at a hospital. Of course my mind is open to a lot of different places, but not to fuckin' retail. I'm just not cut out for that shit, there's too much bullshit involved. Anyway, hopefully I'll be employed at a pretty good job soon, so that I could save enough money for a car and to start my life off in IN!

Eesh, I'm sleepy.

I live in Bloomington. When you say Bloomington hospital, do you mean Bromenn? How did they treat you there?

Oh nevermind- I just noticed Indiana University. You probably mean that Bloomington (I'm in Bloomington, IL).

Yeah, it was a hospital in Bloomington, IN.
Is Bromenn a psych hospital? I've been to Riveredge psych hospital and they treat their patients like absolute shit! If you ever need to go to a psych hospital, NEVER go to Riveredge. Tell them to take you to Naperville or somewhere else, just not Riveredge. *shudders*

congratulations on doing so well. your life is totally in order, it's awesome.

do you mind if i ask you, is retail really that awful? i'm kind of trying to get out of hospitality and into retail at the moment. i've worked in hospitality all my life and i was kind of hoping retail would be a bit different.

i used to work in a hospital as well for a couple of years so if i can help you with any questions about what it was like feel free to ask. are you hoping to do nursing or something like that?

i love fall out boy!!

Yeah, retail kind of sucks especially if you're doing something in customer service (in my opinion anyways). The customers can get pretty nasty sometimes.

I had to make sure that all these areas in the store were filled with certain items (food items in my case). I had to order all these items and make sure that we had enough in stock. Also, I had to keep track of what sells and what doesn't and calculate how much of each to produce a day; producing too much would cause the store to lose money.

That's not even the hard part. After the major holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas they tend to cut your work hours and get rid of a lot of workers. I hated it because I was a specialist, so I had people under me, and when the store gave my workers less hours, I was expected to fill in the gaps by doing my job and my workers' job within a limited number of hours. They tend to do things like that to save money. That's some general things with retail though. Some people can do retail really well, but I refused to over-work myself just because the store was too cheap to get me some good workers. It may also depend on what part of retail you go into.

What kind of work did you do in a hospital? I'm not sure what I want to do in a hospital, hell, I don't know what I would be able to do there. It seems like it would be a pretty interesting job especially since I tend to get bored easily. I'm not really interested in nursing, but I would be willing to do some nursing type stuff if possible (I'm not certified or anything though).

Bromenn is a regular hospital, but they have the only inpatient psych unit in McLean county.
