Mid-Week Mash Up

Its Wednesday (incase you have yet to realize this).

As typical for anyone who works, we cant wait for friday. So instead of getting ready for work as i should be, i decided to catch up on my blogs and write a new one.

Whats new in my life?

I still hate my job, ive been applying for pretty much everything i find online. I dont know what i want to do til i get my degree. I want a job where i can turn it into a career and work my way up the corporate ladder once i do finish my degree. So does everyone else.....
I did have a job testing thing last Thursday at this insurance company. Tested how well i follow directions, that i apparently type 82 wpm (woot!) and if i can navigate around the internet (surprise surprise i can).
I have yet to hear back from them for my phone interview, but patience is important right?
The problem with job hunting, in my opinion, is that i truly believe the best jobs that a person gets are when they have a friend who helps the process along. I think that you have to know someone to get a decent job, ive proven it a few times but nothing to make a statistic of.

Two Saturdays ago i went to a dinner party to meet a friend of a friend who had just moved back to the KC area. Cool dude, i offered to take him to some new sights in the area that have appeared since he last lived here, so this past Sunday i took him to the Sprint Center to the College Basketball Experience. It was pretty cool. To me, who is not a huge basketball fan, it seemed like $12 to play basketball. I suppose it was cool having the goal lowered so that i could dunk and learning different facts.

Monday, i was a good girl, and cleaned the WHOLE apartment. Well, i did skip the bathroom. However, i even stripped the bed and did the sheets! I did some more searching online for deals in vegas. In May my girlfriend Tricia is getting married in vegas. This will be my first EVER trip. I wasnt sure i was going to be able to go. But after getting my W-2s and filing taxes turns out i will have more than enough money to pay off some bills and be able to make it to vegas. So far, with hotel and flight, im looking at around $500 (which includes all taxes, fees, and junk). 
If anyone has any good deals please please please comment. I am looking to fly southwest due to their no baggage fee. I would like to stay some where on the strip; decent, yet get the full vegas experience. I want to see a showgirls show and possibly stop by a strip club (just to say ive done it).

After being robbed in November, ive slowly been replacing my stuff. My friend Joe gave me one of his laptops and also sold me an xbox for WAY cheap. i bought a DVD player and thanks to me exempting my commission check i was able to buy a new point n shoot camera. Its BEAUTIFUL and will be here sometime this week.  Its a Sony Cybershot W-230 which i got brand new for $145. Its a great deal in my opinion, but thats probably bc i paied $200 for a 8 MP a few years ago and this one is a 12 mp. I also bid on a used off camera flash for my Canon Xti. Typically they run about $200, but i decided that id just go with a used one and maybe ill get lucky and get it for less than $50. The auction runs for 6 days, well 5 days now. Cross your fingers.

Ahh, so i need to get ready for work. Oops.
Have a great day Blogger world.
