Well I got fired from my job...on the 4TH OF JULY!! It's because a few times my boss had gone over the rooms after I cleaned them and found a hair or two on the rug. The last time they were most def my hairs, that day I hadn't worn my hair up (big mistake!) and he saved the hairs to show them to me the next day. Then on the third I forgot to restock the mini fridge with soda before I left, and that was it for me. I came into work on the 4th and he fired me. He was very nice about it and said that I'm a very polite and courteous person, I always show up on time, etc. and that he would put in a good word for me at a few other places around that are hiring. I'm not bitter or anything, it's just very upsetting. I liked that job and I've NEVER gotten fired before. I've quit a few jobs because they made me miserable, gotten laid off for seasonal gigs, but never fired. There are plenty of jobs out there, but it is so hard to actually get an interview and a lot of the jobs around here are specialized things. I am probably going to have to bite the bullet and get a retail job. Life just has this vicious cycle going. I really want to work with animals, but in order to work with animals I need a degree. In order to get a degree, I need a car because the local college only does their biology courses at a campus that's an hour to an hour and a half drive away. In order to get a car, I need a job (a good one at that) and I also don't have my license because I don't have a car to practice driving in. It just goes on and on. My boyfriend says I can practice driving in his mom's car (which he shares with her), but he doesn't get home until around 8 on weekdays, and by then he's too tired to supervise me driving, (plus gas costs money, the jeep only gets like 12 miles to the gallon). On the weekends, his mom and stepfather use the car most of the day to get things done that they can't get done on the weekdays because he has their car. This is just so frustrating. I should have gone to college straight out of high school but I guess there's no point in complaining about it now. Plus I didn't really know exactly what I wanted to do. I knew I wanted to work with animals, but didn't know specifically in what capacity I wanted to work with them.
