Well, today is shaping up to be a little better than yesterday I think.
Yesterday one of my top priorities was to call unemployment. I got up pretty early and got on the phone immediately and I just kept getting a busy signal. Frustrating. I called and called.
So, I gave up and decided to get up earlier today and start calling. My plan worked! After about 10 minutes of busy signals, I finally got through. I answered a lot of questions electronically on the phone and now I'm caller number 70 waiting to talk to a representative so that I can re-establish my claim. Fingers crossed. I really really hope I qualify for benefits. I could really use the dough and my parents would probably love it if I could pay for my own gas and cell phone. Ya know?!
Anyway, I went to the Cannery last night for the first time in a while. Actually, Dad and I went during the day and we lost. But, then I went back at night to use my free slot play and I did pretty good. I won like 30 bucks. I walked out with about 15 and I only spent 5 on ice cream on the way home. So, I'm still 10 dollars ahead.
After this call is over, I'll be heading over to college to turn in my books and uniform. Sad. Oh well. It's just a delay. Nothing more.
Hopefully, this time next year I'll be enrolled and well on my way.
Dad and I are eating at the buffet today. We always get these 2 free buffet coupons every month for the Cannery. Totally free. They have decent food too. Especially the dessert bar. Happy Hump Day!
