hey everyone :D
sorry to have been a little bit absent... the last few weeks have been very stressful... last week was a bit better, but not by much. I finally got my car back on Friday! Yay! It looks good :D they did a good work. I was starting to stress a lot about the car for 1) the cheque... but the garage didn't ask for it at all when I went to pick up the car, so I guess they received it. Also, my parents kept asking about my car... so I had to call the garage and each time, they would tell me, "your car is almost ready... Tomorrow, tomorrow..." It took a freaking month! My parents were worried that they were trying to keep the car longer, so it'd increased the rental fees... however, I'm not the one who paid for the rental... so I didn't care much.
Other reason why I was stressed is my work contract. My work contract expired two weeks ago, on August 31. At the beginning of the summer, I was told that my contract would be renewed for one year... which is great, cos that means a real contract and not one for student... with better salary and some advantages (like vacation)... I was also told that I would be signing the contract when my supervisor would come back from vacation... which was on August 9. Because of that, I purposedly didn't go to Cancun with my family. Well time flew, my contract expired and I still haven't signed my contract... two weeks ago, my supervisor said: this friday... (the friday b4 labor day week-end)... so on that friday, as the day passed, I asked him... and my supervisor came back to me: Oh, sorry, I misunderstood. it's not this friday, but next one... hmmm, okay. So next Friday comes and supervisor asks to see us (me and another girl)...: I have a good news and a bad news. Good news is I have a contract for you to sign... the bad news is that, it's only a 2 months extension... By the way, my supervisor sucks and is incompetent... the contract is till October 19, 2007. Sorry, but that's not even 2 months! Apparently, board of directors want to do a head count... so not sure if they'll be able to hire me after October 19... so yeah, it pretty much sucks and that means I definitively have to start looking for a job.
On one hand, it really really sucks. On the other hand, i'm kind of relieved... I've been so stressed in the past month... also, I don't really like the atmosphere in this company. The reasons I was going to stay were: 1) well it's easy ^^; (I'm pretty lazy and unmotivated... which is soooo sad). 2) the money... and 3) for the experience... I know this company is not somewhere I want to stay... cos seriously, the atmosphere sucks and the supervisor, even more. Also, I think it'd be better for me to re-orientate myself... my dad wants me to go back to school, but I'm seriously tired. I soooo need a vacation and so I'm kind of looking forward it ^^; Although I know that my parents will be worried and stuff like that ( i mean, it won't really be peaceful...) Sigh. So yeah, I'm not really getting my hopes high for the job, because this company's politics and management is really weird ^^; So even if they really need me and the other girl, there's high chances they're too pigheads to admit it. Did I mention they were cheap too?
Also, i have this freaking book order for Magic Study, Caressed by Ice, Die for Me and Agnes and the Hitman. I ordered these books on August 13 and should have received all the books last week... but no, they still haven't been shipped yet!!! ugh!! So far, I've already went in store to buy Caressed by Ice and Die for me... but I wished they would ship the books fast! I already written a email asking about my order... they say they were checking it... seriously, grrr.
Hmmm, so yeah... been a stressful week... Add to that the US Open :P Yay, Justine Henin won!!! i,m soo happy, because she beat some really tough players and she really proved that she was no.1. In addition, this is her first Grand chelem tournament that she wins in 4 years other than Roland-Garros where she is queen. So yay!! I was soo nervous for the matches, because she played Serena and Venus Williams. Two players against whom she had bad records... I wonder how the players do it LOL :P
So yeah, sorry for the rant... but I had to get it out :P tomorrow, something more fun LOL I promise, I'll write some reviews :P I'm going to try Ames' lightening review style LOL :P
