Two days can seem like a long time or it can go by quickly. I'm hoping it goes by quickly because THEN I'll be finished working in a call center for 10+ hours a day, 4 days a week. For what it's been, it isn't the worst job.
I've been calling America.
I have spoken to every different person you can imagine: sweet old ladies who appreciate what we're doing, young couples wanting to make sure they've been counted along with their newborn baby, college students, immigrants who don't speak English, empty nesters, snow birds who juggle two residences. Those are the nice ones.
Then we have the anti-government people who would rather stay on the phone and yell at me (for things out of my control) rather than hang up. Or the people who make lewd comments throughout the call. They're a joy.
America is paranoid, but overall, very nice. Well, sometimes. Mostly just cordial. Needless to say, I'm not too sad for this job to be finished.
What am I going to do with all my free time afterwards? HA.
My month is so packed that I'll have just a few days downtime before it gets busy again.
In those few days, I'm going to empty my freezer of all the frozen (fresh) fruit and make all sorts of canned goods. Then I'm going to start cleaning my sewing room/craft studio in the hopes of finding my camera. And also to clean it.
Before I know it I'll be on the road with Heidi and our new friend Rebecca on our way to CHA! in Chicago.
So my weeks might be full still, but they're definitely things I'll WANT to be doing instead of HAVE to be doing.
Like planning what to do in Chicago.
Anyone have suggestions on Must-See's in Chicago area?
Also, if you haven't seen the video below, watch it. Pretty darn funny.
If it's not funny to you, watch the original they're spoofing here. And also here.
I love BYU even more.
