My Super Late May Recap!

Monthly Recap is basically a post where I recap my life, my blog, entertainment things, etc. ūüôā It will occasionally be joined with my other feature, Looking Forward To (LFT), where I discuss things I’m looking forward to. This post will not include LFT.


Oh my gosh, this is so, so overdue. I got really caught up in May between BEA and well, post BEA, plus dealing with home and such. It was a really long month. BEA was great! I meant to do all of my BEA post last month but‚Ķwhat can I say? I haven’t had the energy or motivation to write them. Plus I’m kind of going in sane over my mini notebook that I lost, then found, then lost again. It had my BEA panel notes in it, not to mention a ton of other writing and omg. Pray I find it, okay guys? Or send positive vibes. ‚̧

The first part of the month was really full posts. All pertaining to BEA because that was the highlight of my month. I also put in two job applications on the last couple days of May. I’ve heard back from both since then. I was hired at one job, not in the section of the store I wanted, but I was hired. I am the utility clerk at the grocery store.

If you’re wondering What the heck is a utility clerk? then just think about it for a second. ūüėČ

I basically clean floors, dust mop, vacuum, pick up messes if people drop stuff, greet people, take groceries to people’s cars if they so choose, and do bagging sometimes. Oh. And there’s that whole thing about cleaning restrooms. That’s bound to be fun! It’s okay, I’ve got experience there from being at college. That was fun to do every month. It’s only a part time job though, so I don’t think I’ll have to do any super intense cleaning, like mopping the entire floor, unless I’m there until¬†closing or something. Not sure how utility clerks work, but yeah!

I applied at a bank as well which I heard back about yesterday. They scheduled me for an interview for this Monday! That’s exciting. It would be for the mailroom position, FULL TIME (it’s a big deal to me), from 7:30-4:00. I really, really hope I get it.

I bet you’re wondering about the first job, well, since that’s only a part-time position, I’m considering this one. If I were to get the bank job (knock on wood, pray, send positive vibes/thoughts, cross everything), I would decline the grocery store job because‚Ķ

Let’s face it. The bank is just a better fit for me. It’s full time, which I need and will probably have a higher salary.

So nothing’s guaranteed with that yet, but I’m really hoping I get it.

Oh. There were also a few tornado scares last month. You may have seem me freak out a ton on Twitter. I get really, really freaked out about tornadoes. And storms. Lightning, thunder, wind, rain, dark skies. . .

I am just seriously living in the wrong state.
