I answer 911 for a living at a small town police dpt, and this weekend I had to take overtime I didn't want to take, so I worked a 12 hour shift into an 8 hr turn around into to an 8 hr shift. On top of it all, I had 911 ring more times than it has in the past 3 months combined, and the most recent call turned into a working structure fire, which I've never had to dispatch before in the 2.5 years I've worked here! GAH! Why me?

can I PLEASE kill my stomach now?????

And why the heck aren't advisors ever specific when they talk to you about transferring. I was sitting on the phone like stumbling over my words and trying to think of questions to ask to get the answers I wanted and nada.. So I eventually was like "um, ok, thanks for your help bye!" yeesh..

Rant: I hurt my back, I can't take in a full breath without gasping cause it hurts, and I can't lift my arm past where my hand is above my shoulder! Also forget about turning my head..or bending over or straightening up. I look like Quasimodo! Urgh.. Life drawing was awful today, I could barely draw, let alone control my lines well enough to get decent proportions and shading down.. Was my favorite model today too, she looks like she could be straight from a greek statue!

Rant:
My dad is SOO annoying! I earn my money the tough, right way, by babysitting the 2 month old baby. Don't get me wrong, I love her to death, but it's a ton of work! So I get 10 dollars and hour but my Dad is now deciding I'm not allowed to spend it on fish. WHAT ELSE IS A 13 YEAR OLD GOING TO SPEND HER MONEY ON??? I hate shopping, my town DOES HAVE A LIBRARY DAD! (I don't need to buy books), and I'm perfectly happy right now. SO WHY CAN'T I SPEND MY MONEY ON WHAT I WANT??? It's infuriating! He's like: "Alissa, heres the 30 dollars you earned." "Thanks Dad!" "Alissa, you aren't allowed to spend it at the pet store on your dog or your fish. Got it? I know it's your money and you earned it, but I'm telling you how to spend it. k? Thanks." It's RIDICULOUS! humph... I could understand if I wanted something that I had to save up for... but I don't!

Anyone have any tips on how to turn this around???? urgh!!

When life throws you lemons throw them back!
I am proud to say I own one fish! He lives in a 14 gallon jungle all to himself PAXTON is my double tail halfmoon featured in my icon :)
