Happy New Year !!
Blah, here is a review of Spawnie's life in 2003
Janurary, 2003 started off shitty. On Jan. 10th, 2003, I got fired from my high
paying job. I had figured, that I'd take the rest of the month off, and find a new job in Feb. Ha! That didn't work.
Feb. of 2003. I'm still unemployed, so I decide to go visit Zombie for her 21st birthday. It was a good-time, I think Zombie enjoyed her 21st. I get back home, and start looking for jobs again. I faxed my resume it, and called people all of Feb., and March, still nothing.
March 2003. By now, I'm broke, so I start doing day labor. You know, the shitty jobs that no one else wants, and I got paid cash everyday. So I did have a little bit of money coming in, but not much. March, my roommates told me, that I has until the end of May, to find a job, or else they were kicking me out.
April 2003. I'm still jobless, and I'm still doing day labor. The only problem with the day labor, was that I was working all of these ungodly hours, so it made it harder to look for employment. My roomies remind me of the upcoming deadline, every week.
May 2003. I had a few job offers, that I turned down, because they paid way too little. Had I known how the rest of year would go, I prolly would have taken those. Day Labor slows down, and now I'm only working 2-3 days a week. I start selling some of my stuff, so that I can eat. Yippie ! May comes and goes, no job, no apt. I get kicked out, I had no where else to go, so I end up back at my parents place. Joy !
June 2003. June 6th, after being at my parents, for a little less then a week, the bank that I have my car loan through, come by and repo my truck. So now not only do I not have a job, but now I can't find a job. My brother and sister find out that my truck got repo'd, and gave me a loan to get it back. So I'm still jobless, but at least I have my truck again.
July 2003. Yay, I found a job. I'm now a cashier at a shoe store, the job sucks, and the pay is shitty, but at least I'm getting paychecks. I was able to eat again, and keep gas in my truck.
August 2003. I found a part-time job, and start making extra money, well, I thought I would be anyway. I was a delivery boy for Papa John's Pizza. Papa John's decides to not pay me. Bastards. If you read back in this blog, you'll see how much hell I had to go through, to get paid.
September 2003. I move. I move from ChicagoLand, to the Ann Arbor Michigan area. I moved in with Zombie. And once again, I'm unemployed again. After living in Michigan for 2 weeks, I was able to find work.
October 2003. October was uneventful, nothing really happened at all during that month.
November 2003. Holiday season approaches. I went out to Grand Rapids, which is about a 2 hour drive, and started hanging out with Alias. She a cool chick, rabid about anime, but otherwise a cool chick. Mr Monk comes over from the UK. So for TurkeyDay, we had a house-full of people, it made me feel like I had a family.
December 2003. Another uneventful month. I did find a second job though. So now I'm working 2 full-time jobs, and about 78 hours a week. I need the money, but the lack of sleep sucks. Oh well.
Anyway, that was my year in review, feel free to laugh at my misfortune, everyone else does.
