I have no idea what's gotten into me, but I've been SO lethargic lately. Actually, it seems to be getting worse as time goes on. Most of my energy is invested in trying to keep up with the summer course I am taking, which is taught by the instructor from Hell. All I do is read.. read.. read.. and it's not enjoyable in the least... always wondering what minute fact she is going to drill us on, and be-little us if we don't know the answer.

Other than school, Walmart has really worn me down. Despite the fact I only work 20 hours a week, the drama of the idiots that work at the store, coupled with the growing hostility of the majority of the shoppers has split my last nerve.

I've found that when I'm home, I find little enjoyment in small activities I used to, and have little to no ambition to much of anything. The fact that I dusted my sitting room today is an impressive accomplishment for me. All I do is lay on the sofa, and nap. I am always tired these days.. not sure why. It's quite aggravating.

I've tried energy drinks, tea, I eat plenty of fruits and veggies.. nothing seems to help. I've even gone to the doctors to see if I'm diabetic or hypoglycemic, but nothing.

I know I should get my fat ass out on the elliptical machine, but it seems like a mile away from the sofa right now. Ugh.. I need to snap out of this!

Time Flies!

Wow.. I haven't updated this blog in a while!! I do apologize to the three people out there in cyber land who actually read this thing. I have been swamped with the summer grad class from hell.. so I have not had much time for leisure activities.

After almost a month's absence from blogging, I wish I had more exciting personal thing to write about, but alas, I don't. I have been sending out numerous resumes online to local school districts, but have yet to get a single interview. I even applied to two positions at my old high school, and had a friend of the person in charge of personnel put in a good word for me... still nothing. Ugh. It's a sad thing when your old alma mater doesn't even call!

I have become beyond burnt out with Walmart after 8 long years working retail with that company. Our customers are some of the trashiest people out there... who seem to delight in throwing red-neck hissie fits over the smallest matter simply because they feel they have the right to do so. I never saw my parents or grandparents treat store employees the way in which we are treated by customers every day... and it is a very sad commentary about society that things are becoming so bad. It started with the way people dressed, not caring how they looked or having any respect for their appearance, and now, it is no surprise, that their attitudes have become just as ugly. When the fall semester starts up and I begin subbing again, I will be dropping down to three days a week, 15 hours total. Anything beyond that, couple with the responsibilities of grad work and subbing, I would crack.

So that's it.. nothing really new. I hope to be back with more interesting news of soap box speeches in the near future. :)
