But, until I hit lotto or marry a rich Dr, it's something I have to do it. Sigh.
So, to make up for the fact that I am no longer 'free' and have to answer to 'the man', I find humor. Always. With everything. In every situation. I find humor....because if I don't, I won't survive. No, seriously, I won't. I'm convinced that the moment I don't find some glimpse of humor in life, I will be mostly dead.
For example, the lunch lady sounds like the boss slug lady from Monsters, Inc. and I LOVE her. She is always happy, singing, dancing, making jokes...always entertaining. Today she was singing. I had to laugh and tell her she had a wonderful voice. She cackled at me and said 'Oh, no I don't and I don't care. I'm singing anyway.' Her name is Edna but I'm calling her Roz from now on. She's my favorite. Makes me love lunch time even more.

Then there's the chick that sits next to me in class. She is constantly trying to beat me. At tests, at projects, at getting to a website. So competitive but really...there's no prize. There's no award. And you get most of the answers wrong. I don't get it. I swear, this makes me laugh. She must look over at my computer screen 400 times per day. I haven't nicknamed her yet but it's like a little game I play now. I will click the crap out of my screen just to freak her out. I'm so glad I have good peripheral vision. This makes training a little more fun.
Today I was in one of the break rooms eating my lunch. I could have joined the class in the cafeteria but I wanted to be alone. I was in one of those moods today. Anyway, it's dark in this room, there's a couch and the TV is always on The Food Network. I sat on the couch, put my feet up, was slurping down leftover pasta and some girl comes and sits next to me. Ok. That's cool. It's a big couch and she wasn't invading my personal space. She put her iPod on, buds in her ears and was content on her own. Awesome! Until....she starts snoring. Seriously? I love naps, too, but really? Snorey McSnoreson finally woke up and left. I had to giggle. I hope her power nap worked.
Needless to say, there is endless entertainment for me at work. It may not be my dream job but it's better entertainment than people watching at the mall. I mean, I get paid for this.
