It never stops...

Today I went to the dentist and found out I had four impacted wisdom teeth that have most likely damaged the four other teeth that the wisdom teeth are next to. I am going to need to go under general anesthesia and it will cost me more than I make in three months, luckily I have dental insurance.

1st post

My name is Heather, I am currently in my early 20's and moving soon to Rapid City, South Dakota. This blog will be a sort of online journal of the move and my life after. I am not looking for a huge following but just to present a real person and a real story.

Today I worked for five hours today and made a whopping $38.75.

I work at a discount clothing chain and many people come in wanting further discounts even going so far as to switch tags and yell at me for ringing up the "wrong" price. If there are two tags on an item it does not matter if the one says $19.99 when the purse is $59.99. I don't know where I took the censors off because I honestly don't pay very much attention or give a damn. I don't care if you want a lower price, I just don't. I don't care that you worked in a store as a manager for over 20 years, I don't, I really really don't. I do not do my job because I care, I do not say "thank you" or "have a nice day" because I care. I do my job, I leave, I don't think about customers unless there was a really nasty one. People seem to think I care about their lives, my managers know customers by names as do some of the other cashiers but I don't waste my time or the company's time by getting to know the life stories of the customers because we don't do that kind of selling to them. Most of them aren't even locals but tourists from out of town. I do know that people shouldn't be spending $600 on clothing or furniture if they tell me they are 20K in debt or if they need to put a $100 transaction on three or four payment methods. If people make under 25K a year they shouldn't buy clothing every week. The biggest problem I have with customers are those people who return everything. Today I had a woman return 5 things with a receipt saying that she returned 9 or 10 things yesterday and bought them on the forth. If you don't have enough money to keep things after purchase than just don't buy a bunch of things you don't need.

I want a full time job but I can't get one in this area there are too many people and not enough jobs mainly because so many people are moving into the area. Many of the jobs here are part time and end in the fall and start back up again in the late spring.

Once I move to Rapid City I will be on my own though I will hopefully be able to get my mom and dad to cosign a loan for a house. I have a pretty little one picked out that has an extra room that I can rent out for $250 a month or so to cover most of the mortgage so I will only have my car payment, car maintenance and fueling, utilities, phone, and insurances to worry about. I also may be able to rent out my bedroom to people looking for an alternative to a hotel a few nights a month. It has a workshop that I am sure I can turn into a room for me. It has enough space for quite a large garden so I can grow most of my food and a large living room that will allow me to put in some grow lights and a small farm inside to grow herbs and patio plants in the winter. I will be able to transfer to Rapid City and hopefully get another job so I can save up for school so I can get a better job. I already started my search for cars as well and have started my financing options.
