I got to sleep in today...well...at least I would have, but the fan was left on high, and I woke up with legs like blocks of ice, eesh...! I chilled around, microwaved myself dinner from last night for lunch, and before I left for work, Dad came home. So I asked him.
"Daaaad...? Could I borrow...your car? It's a short shift, and I'll take care of it...!"
I think I've said it before on here, but here's what it is. I came back home from the apartment in time for my dad to have something of a mid-life crisis. So when I drove into work today, I was escorted by a shiny black Cadillac CTS with chrome spinner rims...and wearing a Pizza Hut flag. Now how many out there want your delivery driver to come to your house in one of those, huh? :D
And now I'm faced with unemployment. Come January, I'll hopefully be starting up college over at Purdue Calumet...though for what, I'm still clueless. In the meanwhile, a guy from work named Nick, a.k.a. "Twisted Angel" was wondering if I could help him put some music videos together for him and his rap group. Like...actually filming one...putting it together, stuff like that. He'll pay me...and it'll give me something to put in my video "portfolio"...though I do admit to you all I feel a little uneasy about it. He likes stuff like Insane Clown Posse and once told me he wanted to make a video so bad they couldn't show it on tv. ...thankfully, though...he understands that I'm adverse to such things -_-;
I was hoping to possibly get into paralegal work. A week or so ago, I ran into my old Christian friend Ashley Arreola's dad on a delivery. He heard about me going unemployed, so he told me about what he does for a living, and gave me a DVD to watch about it. Well...being I'll be home...if I can make a profit from here, I'll go for it! ...and y'know...Ashley was partially the reason I got saved and became a born-again Christian in the first place...and here her family is, stepping in just right when I need it once more. God works in awesome ways, eh? :)
I met a guy at work named John who just started up there. It turns out he's big into anime too. ...of course, I found out about him right as I'm leaving my job...but hey, he has my number, so who knows, I could maybe have a new friend. I made an unexpected friendship with a lady-turned-manager by the name of Lynette. She loved the Shippo plushie hanging from my rearview mirror...and from that, I accidentally got her and her kids into anime and Inuyasha. Whoops.... ^_^; Also, there was another manager there by the name of Nikki who was pretty cool with me...and I don't know if maybe I'm misperceiving things or thinking too highly of myself...but I sometimes got the feeling that she had...well, feelings for me. Dunno. Then there was another girl by the name of Jessica, who I actually worked with before over at Wendy's! ...and then she comes here to work with me again! Agh!! XD
Well, I'll have all this free time now...and don't think this means party time, because a lot of it'll be here at home. I'll still be doing stuff...but I'll also have more free time. Boo-yah. ;) I think I could take a break for a little bit before I get started up with paralegal work. I imagine I could do okay with that...just need a little training from those people beforehand.
When I was going on my first delivery, I left the radio alone so it was still playing Dad's radio station, 97.1, WDRV, "The Drive." And a man by the name of Steppenwolf told me a tale.
"I like to dream, yes...yes, right between my sound machine. On a cloud of sound I drift in the night. Any place it goes is right. Goes far, flies near, to the stars, away from here. Well, you don't know what we can find. Why don't you come with me little girl on a magic carpet ride? You don't know what we can see. Why don't you tell your dreams to me, fantasy will set you free. Close your eyes, girl, look inside, girl, let the sound take you away.
"Last night I held Aladdin's lamp, and so I wished that I could stay. Before the thing could answer me, well, someone came and took the lamp away. I looked around, a lousy candle's all I found. Well, you don't know what we can find. Why don't you come with me, little girl, on a magic carpet ride? Well, you don't know what we can see. Why don't you tell your dreams to me, fantasy will set you free. Close your eyes, girl, look inside, girl, let the sound take you away."
