Merry Christmas! @ 02:32 pm


I know I've been MIA lately... It's hard to believe I haven't posted since August! Life has been kind of crazy, and between work, school, every day life, and the holidays, I just haven't really been online much outside of doing homework for the cost accounting class that I am so glad to be finished with! I think it was the hardest class I've had (mostly because the teacher was such a tool) I had to teach myself the course, but I still managed to eek by an A thankfully! I'm just relieved it's over now, and I get a little break from all things school until the 3rd.

Good news I hadn't mentioned yet; the manager that was making my life hell was pushed to leave on a good note (over getting fired for incompetence and laziness), and I had been given my old position back. I had applied for the inventory control clerk position two weeks after that and was told in the middle of November that I got it! Things have been a lot better in my department as I train my replacement. I could have stayed, but honestly, I'm tired of the way they use me for what ever function they want and cut my hours to give them a better CPH (cartons per man hour) The inventory position guarantees 40 hours a week, it's a step in the further progression of my knowledge that will help me in my career, and it relieves me of being the department's door mat. I should be starting my new position sometime in the next couple weeks! :)

I did write a little something for Christmas for a prompt made by frostydragon! at Spank_World here: http://spanking-world.livejournal.com/384590.html

The family is well, we had pictures taken for Christmas: https://pattoncreek-hoover-al.portraits.com/-jenniferjenks/gallery

I'm excited to see their reaction this year for Christmas. They've wanted to watch the Elf on a Shelf movie practically everyday since 'Jack' (Lucian named his elf last Christmas) appeared about two weeks ago :P The past ten days he's diligently been marking off on the calendar how many days until Santa comes. Too dang adorable :)

I'm going to do my best to be better about getting online more often to keep up with my friends here. I hope everyone is doing well and that your holidays are made of win!

Nothing particular comes to mind; things have been pretty calm in my corner of the world. :)

Girrrlllll! I'm glad to hear you're okay. I was just thinking about you a couple weeks ago and how you just up and disappeared , but all for good reasons though. :-)

Anywho, congrats on the new position and Merry Christmas!!

Yeah, school is typically the reason I disappear for a good while, but this time was a bit long even for me! Oo I hope you have been well to

Glad to hear everything has worked out for you workwise.

I wish I had something exciting to tell you, but nothing particularly interesting has happened to me. I have booked tickets to go see the new Stars Wars movie though, so I guess that's something.

My roommate went to see the new movie and was disappointed, but he's one of those die hard fans.... I've yet to see it though I want to

I've tried to stay away from spoilers, so for once I can go into the movie without any idea what is going on. I do have a terrible feeling that one of the characters is going to get killed off though.

I don't have access to the spanking world fic!

You and your family look so great in those pics!

Thanks for the Xmas card!

Oh! How close are you to graduating? I'm technically a sophomore now, but I'm still going through a ton of prerequisites (a result of not applying myself in high school) so I'm estimating another six or possibly seven semesters for me. D:

I took two distance courses and two on-campus last semester and noticed there seems to be a lot more work involved with the online classes. And it really did feel like I was teaching myself - there was very little direct interaction with the professors themselves. On the other hand, I didn't have to make the commute or sit in a classroom for hours, which was nice.

I'm happy to read that you got your prior position back, sounds like it's got more stability as far as hours are concerned which is always a good thing! ^^

I've got about a year left (9 classes including the one I'm taking currently) I take 5.5 week mini terms at one at a time. I would take two, but it's just a bit too much I've found with work and kids to also tend to. I had to take some Math and English prerequisites back in the day when I first went to college for my AA. I dropped out in the beginning of 10th grade, so I effectively had a ninth grade education when I started ;)

Yeah, with the online classes, you definitely have to be self-motivated to do the classwork on your own, which is fine for me for the most part as long as the teacher is at least not being a complete dick you know what I mean? LOL!

I moved on to the inventory control position as of Wednesday, and I'm loving it! I meant to make a post about that as well as post some pics of the kids at Christmas :)
