People you work with

Wow. I almost told one of my fellow employees to screw himself tonight. I don't get too mad when you are to busy to help with something. I understand that we are all busy but watch your freaking tone. GRRR. Waiting tables sucks. Anyone hiring for a bartender out here. I like it much better when one of your patrons walks up, says hey can I get a (insert drink here) and you hand it to them. Low and behold you get a tip for it. I want to make money. Not depend on someone else to make it for me. Give me a section and let me talk to tables. Shit I will do your work for you just dont f with my money.

Dumb servers suck!!!!

Trivia with the young'ens

So I was invited out to Trivia night by some girls that I work with. They had told me that we would all be the youngest people in there by about 20 years. Well sitting there waiting one of the girls in the group celebrate their 25th birthday, it hit me. Wow almost 27 and these people have graduated college. They are on the road to their dreams. I am lucky I am doing it now but if I knew then what I know now, I would not take those moments for granted. I know I am only two years older but two years is a big difference in your 20's. You see things that you didn't then. Your eyes are more open and so is your mind. You appreciate things differently. Its just weird. While some at the table graduated in history and foreign politics others at the table are graphic designers and webmasters. Such a diverse crowd and so open to what you say. Its different but I was able to sit back and take it all in. Listen to each conversation and think wow these people are really our future. Now living up here I feel better knowing that at least some of our age group is educated. Some of our age group cares about the world and what is going on. (not saying that Texas doesn't, they just don't talk openly about it) I really can't wait to get into the college scene and start listening more.

Dave Matthews

ok so here I sit, we got here a bit till 7 and I have to be at work at 11. Do I risk it and just be late or do I leave a place that has free tickets for Dave Matthews? Ummm I am risking being late. It sucks but what can you do. Its a one in a life time thing right. There are lots of characters here. One guy has already started drinking. I mean really! Who wants a yengleing at 7 am? Umm I think I am just getting over the bottle of wine I drank last night but still. I guess I am just that out of touch. Wait didn't I used to start drinking a 3 am the night before? lol

Life in Richmond

Ok I must confess, although I love it here, I am a little homesick. Don't get me wrong. This does not mean I want to go back home. I jus miss being able to go get hole in the wall real Mexican food. I want to go to a bar. Not just a place that sells food that has a good bar. I want some more friends. (I know I will keep meeting people). In a lot of ways this move was for me to get out of my Dallas bubble. Well this has deffinatly hppened and I could not be more happy about it. As all of you know I am just extremely impatient :)
Ohhhhh..... I did find a red hot and blue today! I will drive 50 miles for that freaking potato salad :)
,ost importantly I am ready for school. I want to learn. Hell I need to learn.
All in all Richmond is great. I just kind of miss home
