Everybody's Working For the Weekend...

... or at least some people are.  As of now my weekend is filled up with lots of work, such as chaperoning 120+ people at a sorority semi-formal from 7 to midnight, flying from Greenville to Charlotte, NC, finishing two 10 page reports, hopefully getting my resume together, start looking for jobs, and whatever else comes my way.

So in my case (and for all the other TLCs), I am working for December 8th (also the 30th anniversary of John Lennon's death).  That's right my month long Christmas break starts December 8th.  We are lucky because they tend to not send us anywhere the week of finals, then obviously we are off for the rest of December and into January because we work with the same schedule as the universities.

I thought about getting a part time job, maybe go back to Express for a month or so, but after thinking about it I decided that was a ridiculous idea.  A lot of people think I have "the life" and get paid to still be a sorority girl in college, but I promise you that's not the case.  Unlike the people who work 9-5 with the occasional weekend paperwork, I am literally on the clock 24/7.  Yes most of my days is filled with free time, but you have to remember I have no car, no real home, I live out of a suitcase, and I'm surrounded by people I've know for maybe a week.  So even when I have "free time" it really isn't free.  So because of that, I decided to spend my Christmas break jobless, probably moneyless, but I will have plenty of time to catch up with friends and family--which is good enough for me!
