Well, my stress level is abut to go WAY down!  
Today we discovered that there'd been some sort of snafu and there was no one to work the ice cream place in the union. I let my boss know I was always happy to cover at Ice Cream, and she asked me to do so.

A while later, she asked if I wanted to switch to working Ice Cream permanently, which I quickly agreed to.

See, the awesome thing about working Ice Cream? It's REALLY slow. Like between 11am and 3pm? I had a total of 12 customers. Yes, 12 customers. As opposed to the 200+ we get between 10am and 12:30 PM at Panda Express.

This means that the bosses let whoever is working Ice Cream read and basically kick back and relax, as long as we watch for customers and help them as soon as they appear. Since I wasn't expeccting to work Ice Cream today, I didn't have a book, and my boss let me set up my laptop on a shelf in storage behind Ice Cream so I just popped back and forth, checking on Ice Cream every 30 seconds or so (2 steps to my right from wher emy laptop was and I could see all of Ice Cream). Tomorrow I'll make sure I have a coouple books and a notebook for writing down snips of ideas for fics... maybe I'll use the time to outline my sncross_bigbang story instead of flying blind... lol

But I also get to wear regular jeans instead of the black pants required by Panda, I can go get a sip of my drink pretty much whenever I feel thirsty, and it's all in all MUCH more relaxed. No more me going off on pissed off rants to my mom! lol...

Plus, I'll still get off work at 1pm on Mondays, Wedsdays, and Fridays, but on Tuesdays and Thursdays I'll work until 3:30 (because Ice Cream is so easy I don't get as exhausted working there and have no problem working later) which means? An extra $43.50 each paycheck! YAY! More money for less work, even though it's more hours? Hell Yes! I'll probably use less than half the energy all day at Ice Cream that I was using just during the lunch rush at Panda...

In closing? I am a very happy girl... oh the things I can do with the extra $43.50 a paycheck (which is $87 a month, since I get paid twice a month).... I'm a happpy girl... will have to get some new pairs of regular jeans, though, since I've only bought black jeans recently so I could wear them to work... lol
