AGHAGGGHGHGH soo booored! Somehow I drew the short stick, and end up watching the dogs while my little sis and the parents go to germany, d'oh!

All of 3 hours since they've gone, and already dying here lol. Oh, and anyone ever try to drive a car with their left foot after driving stick your whole driving 'career'? I swear, I must've given myself whiplash trying to 'lightly' tap the brakes haha.


So...week long party at my crib? jk!

well, at least i'm not the only one

wtf mate? I can't find a job for a few months, then I get a couple job opp's, and my foot is broke.

i'm thinking my best bet on finding something for now is to be what we all hate...a telemarketer!

You could also do tech support, if you find a job that hasn't been outsourced to India. I do phone support and it sucks.
