    First day at a new job!

    ! I'm so anxious. I don't even know if I'm supposed to working today's shift tbh, but the worst that'll happen is that I'll need to go home, I guess.

    Started driving for Uber tonight.

    It's a Monday, so I knew it would not be very busy, had four fares in about 2 hours. I am doing this for a couple of reasons. First off, although I do not live in my house, I still need to pay for everything. Secondly, since I don't live in my house, I basically have no life...

    My boss always randomly cuts my shifts at work

    so I'll be looking forward to almost a week off work to relax, and then she will call me in to cover someone's shift on my days off. Like, I made plans for my days off, you cut my shifts and now you need me to come in? I'm sick of it

    I've been at work since 9 this morning

    and I haven't had a single phone call. I'm a receptionist, my job is to answer the phone, and no one is calling, which means I'm very bored sitting at this desk.

    Probably one of the most asked questions about

    my job; what does it feel like to be photographed nude? The honest answer? It feels completely normal. Yes, I was nervous at first, but who wouldn't be? I did a couple of shoots, and I began to get comfortable with it, up to the point where it starts to feel completely normal...

    I have a job that I don't like.

    It's not what I trained to do. The people there are really nice, but the work is dull as dishwater. I'm hoping for a promotion soon. If I'm going to work in this ****** department then I want to work my way up, so at least my pay packet will match my boredom levels! Ahh...
