    And I'm not upset about that. Because why? Because I know I'm better than the last girl who worked here and they just can't fire me. I love you, internet. You keep me entertained durring my 6 hour shift.

    Yep. But I work like a maniac.

    Everyday

    Everyday I look at the internet when I should be working. I’ve only one person to blame if I’m ever caught. I’m not that silly as I am the boss, and I work for myself, so keep your sticky beck out of it – I’ll do what I like and work when I like!!!

    Its An Epedemic!

    Wow!  I knew I wasn't crazy when I told my boyfriend I wasn't the only one surfing the net at work.  I look up the most random things that I would normally never know or ask about.  The internet is like this world with endless possibilities.  I tend to be a...

    Ok, so I've got a new research project.

    Not As Often As Before

    I used to be on here daily but it also depends on how busy we are. When we are slow no one cares as we are all doing it. As long as busy times are kept productive it's all good. Just in between today so a little bit of both.

    Last Tuesday I was written up.

    The paper I signed said that I would get sent home whenever I came in late. Driving to work, I realized I would be late (I punched in at 7:01) and I started thinking of the housework I would get done today. I had my day planned out. I take my card to my boss just so I don't get...
