im a terrible person. i missed my grandmas birthday today, because i overslept. i need to get my priorities straight. i just called her and wished her a happy birthday. i love how understanding my family is…i just wish they would kick my ass sometimes too.
i picked up a shift at my part time job yesterday. the humane society was there showing off dogs they had for adoption. it broke my heart. i went around to every dog and got to know them. thankfully they don’t put the dogs down at this shelter…they keep the dogs for as long as it takes to get adopted, but that means the dogs (and other animals) have to live in a tiny cage for a lot longer. i wanted to take one home with me so bad. i got some information on adopting. and looked on the website when i got home. i saw that they are hiring. i don’t know if it pays, or its just volunteer, but im going to look into in a few days when i get a chance to stop out. i want to help. and if i can’t have a dog of my own right now, i’d still like to make a difference. every dog that my family has had has been a rescue from the humane society. i called my mom yesterday and told her how much i would like a dog again…i’ve been talking about this for a long time. and she said exactly what i thought she would say…you can’t even take care of yourself, how will you take care of a dog? haha, well i know shes right…then she proceeded to say she would cut me off and not let me move back home if i lost my apartment, if i brought a dog home. haha. o mom. this is just more motivation for me to find a job where i can support myself, and a puppy!
i do have a job interview tomorrow. fingers crossed. i guess it helps working in a mall, where most of the other employees from other stores get to know you too. i just walked in and asked for an interview. win. i’ve been applying like crazy the past few days. im gonna go to this hiring event on tuesday too. i hope something comes out of all this. i need it to.
