At midnight Jessa & I started 1408. I got tired pretty fast and went to bed.
I woke up at 8 to watch Abby. Today was kind of funny. After I wake up I usually let herself get ready. Even though I’m her brother I don’t wanna be in the room when she gets dressed, that’s weird. So I leave her alone. But I heard her fussing and whining while I was downstairs. When I came to her room she was having a hard time getting a dress on. The clear straps that some girls clothes have were tangled to both sides of her neck and she couldn’t get it to fit right. So I had to help her. It was pretty funny.
After I put her on the bus I went on the computer for a while. then I watched the last half of The Butterfly Effect before waking up Jessa. We watched a little bit of Bridesmaids before getting up to get ready to leave for the day. We went to Paneras for lunch with Jessica’s mom because she was at the New Lenox library for a meeting. After lunch Jessa left with her mom and I went to Starbucks to do some writing. I got a bunch of pages done and feel like it was a successful session. After writing I went to Walmart to say hey and get some weather stripping for my car. I couldn’t find any, but I did do some Valentines Day shopping.
After Walmart I came home and ate some spaghetti. Then I spent some time on the computer before talking with David & then Joy on the phone. Both are going through relationship issues that I needed to lend my advice to. Then I’ve been on the computer since & now I’m doing my journal.
People I interacted with: Jessa, Abby, M-Dawg, Jaime, Peter, David, Joy, Mom, & Dad.
Tuesday Jan. 22nd, 2013
At midnight I was watching Frankenstein and then went to bed.
I woke up at 8 to watch Abby. After I put her on the bus I watched Conan & AFV. Then I got ready to leave for the day. I went to Walmart to say hi to David & Jaime. Then I went to Starbucks and did some writing. After being there for a few hours I came home. I talked to my mom for a while & then watched Friends & Income Property.
Then I left for the Provina Medical Center. Don asked me to tape a meeting, so I did. It was long, boring, and about bone health. They were handing out parfaits, so after the meeting I took two and went to Walmart because I knew Jaime was there till 9 and it’s a boring shift. So I hung out with her for a while. Then I came home and went on the computer, did a load of clothes, and ate some food. Now I’m doing my journal a little early because I’m gonna take sleeping pills and watch Inception.
People I interacted with: Abby, David, Jaime, Mom, Devin, & Don.

At midnight I was at Dave’s still watching Jimmy Fallon. When that was done I hung out for a little longer & then drove home. When I got home I did my journal and then turned on The Town while I went to bed.
I woke up at 8 to watch Abby. After I put her on the bus I finished The Town & then watched a couple episodes of Conan that I had recorded. Then I got ready to leave for the day. I went to the auto place by my house that my dad goes to so I could get the tires filled with some stuff that’s lighter than air. My car needed it & drives 80x better now. After that I went to Walmart just to say what’s up and our AT&T rep was there, so I told her about a customer I thought was fraud and spent a little longer there. Then I found out Jaime called off, David was going to lunch, and Tracy was in there alone. So I stayed to talk to Charelle our ATT rep & lend Tracy my knowledge. Peter came in and talked to me for a while & then David got back from lunch & I hung out a little while longer.
When I left I went to Starbucks to do some writing. I hate the tables there because they are a little too short for me, but it’s a lot better than sitting in my room looking at my wall. After a few hours of writing I went to Target & shopped a little. I only got a pair of tech-gloves. Then I came home & made some Ramen. While I ate I watched the rest of Up In The Air & then decided to watch The Perks of Being A Wallflower. After that I went on the computer for a while & also downloaded the new Morrissey song. Now I’m doing my journal.

At midnight I was doing my journal. After that I just sat on the computer & watched a little HGTV until I went to bed.
I woke up at 11:30 and laid in bed for a while until I decided to get up and shower. After that I got ready to go out for the day. I went to Walmart to pick up a few things. I talked with Jaime & David for a little while. After hanging out there for a while I picked Simek up & we went to Barnes & Noble. I wanted to pick up a filmmaking book, but they were all out & it’s cheaper for me to buy it offline than to have them order it for me. After B&N I dropped Simek off at home & then went back to Walmart because I had no idea what else to do. We had some good laughs in wireless & I also got to talk to Peter about the other manager. He said brush it off because there’s nothing I can do. Jaime & David got into activations so I left.
When I came home I went on the computer for a bit. Then I pooped & played Infinity Blade for a while. After that I watched Remember Me because I was recommended it. Then I felt like leaving the house. So I went to Starbucks for some hot chocolate & did some writing. It went well & Starbucks was actually a nice place to sit. I wish the chairs were more comfortable, but I can see that place being a new writing home. After they closed I came home and watched V/H/S.
People I interacted with: Mom, Abby, Dad, Devin, Jaime, David, Joy, Simek, & Peter.
Saturday Jan. 5th, 2013
At midnight I was on the computer for a while until Jessa & I decided to start watching 50/50.
I woke up at 9:20 because I had work. I got ready & left. When I got to work I helped out in electronics for a while and then went to wireless to give Jaime her break. While in there I did an activation and had a conversation with a very nice man. He wasn’t very knowledgeable with phones, but I persuaded him to get an iPhone and he called back later in the day to thank me for helping him and that he loved his phone. I was asked numerous times through the day to go to electronics to help, but I did a few activations and was helping a ton. I kinda screwed up an upgrade too. A customer came in with his 2 daughters and they were upgrading their phones. Well during an upgrade we get the option to upgrade fully or do an iPhone upgrade. Since they were upgrading to iPhones I figured why not. So I picked iPhone and when the activations were all done one of the phones came out almost $300. So I screwed up, and we had to take the activation back and get it fixed the right way. David helped a ton, I wouldn’t have been able to do it without him. The customers were great too, they weren’t mad at all and understood my mistake. Then I left for lunch.
It was snowing & it looked really pretty outside. Jessica made us chicken nuggets and potatoes for lunch. While I ate we watched the rest of 50/50. Then I went back to work and did some work for electronics as well as helped fixed some shelves in receiving. Then I was asked to go to wireless because there was a long line. When I got there I started doing an upgrade & Sprint was giving me problems, so I called and was on hold. When I finally got through I was asked to leave wireless to help in electronics. Nikki pulled me aside and said something like “I know you made a mistake earlier, since you haven’t been in wireless much (I’m in wireless all the time) let them handle it because we can use your help in electronics. When I got to electronics they didn’t know what I was doing there because they didn’t need my help. They had me dusting TV’s and computers. It was a huge waste of time, especially considering I was pulled from doing actual work and helping customers. But I stayed in electronics till my shift was done.
After work I stayed in wireless and talked to David for a while. When I got home I told my parents about how I was pulled while helping a customer and they want me to go about the situation differently, but I’m not sure what I’m gonna do yet. I want to tell a manager about how unprofessional it was for the person that pulled me to do it. But we’ll see. After I talked to them I went on the computer for a bit & then finished 50/50 and watched Looper. I wrote a little while watching Looper, but the movie was very distracting. Now I’m doing my journal.
People I interacted with: Jessa, Mom, Abby, Dad, Shara, Jaime, David, Tracy, & Alyssa.

Then back to scheduling, It took me so long to schedule one day that I originally thought would take 6 hours is now taking close to 12 hours. So I gotta split it up some way or make it faster. Then I argued with my dad for a half hour about how I don’t clean around the house, but all the messes are his or someone else’s. It went nowhere because he just couldn’t admit that it was his mess. After that I was on tumblr for a while. Then I had to lay down for a few minutes. I had to stop looking at my computer. So I did that.
