So I've been having a bit of a different week this week. I'm doing a slightly different job at work.

As many of you know I work in a customer service centre, and while I started off on the phones, I also do a lot of faxes. This summer I've been doing a lot of "special projects" instead of just plain phone calls/faxes. We have one person who does all of the e-mails, and she's going on vacation next week, so is her back up, so I'm taking over for her.

She was in meetings Wed-Fri, so even though her back up was there, they had be do it so I could get practice. OMG I have no idea how she does that job on her own. I've been getting other people to help me, but still, I've been coming in at 7:30 and staying until 5 or 5:30, and still I'm super behind. I'm trying to get things answered within 24 hours, but gah, it's hard. Laura, the girl who normally does it told be she generally gets things answered in 3-4 hours. Yeah, not going to happen.

In other news nothing much is happening. What with all the extra work hours and working through my lunches, I haven't really been doing much fandom wise. I did however give in and buy a permanent account. I never spend money on myself. Never. That was one of the fun things about China, we had all this money, but it wasn't *real* money so we knew we had to spend it. It was fun buying whatever I wanted.

Anyways I decided to splurge, but felt really guilty. I kind of mentioned it to my parents but wouldn't admit how much it cost, because $150 seems like a *lot* to me for an LJ, but finally my mom dragged it out of me and was like "That's it? I thought it was going to be way more than that, why would you feel guilty for spending a few hundred dollars? Andrea (my little sister) spent that much on her new bikini!" Now I'm feeling much better.

I don't know, there are always things that I want, but I generally stockpile them and get other people to buy them for me. Like for my birthday I finally got a SCB Shirt (which I'm wearing now). I've wanted it since they came out quite a few months ago.

Also, I kind of want to start posting pictures to my LJ, would that annoy my flist? I've just been looking at all my China pics lately, and other pics that I've taken, and want to share them. Or in the case of the China pictures, post them with explanations before I forget the explanations. Should I filter them?

So, at the moment we're watching the FIFA Poland vs. Brazil game. I think the only reason why it's making TV here is because the games are being held in Canada this year (which is kind of sad, since no one here really cares).

Watching the game, and comparing it to the hockey was recently watching, I've come to the conclusion that the people of Canada/N. America would like watching it more if the soccer players weren't such pussies.

For god's sake they trip and they stay down rolling around the field as if they can't get up just to stop the game.

In hockey, if you go down, and don't get up, chances are you're out of the game because you're hurt so badly. It just leaves me kind of disgusted watching these pro soccer games. :S

So....

Anyone here know how hard it is to become a hermit? Because I'm seriously considering it.

It's got to be better to consciously decide to be alone, and never expect anyone rather than expect people and be disappointed and hurt by it.

I'm the type of person who's nice. I go out of my way to help people and try and be nice, but I really have to think about changing all that, because I put other peoples needs before mine, and really, sometimes that just comes back to bite you in the ass. I try to be there, and be understanding, and make sure that everyone is happy, even if it puts me out and then I end up with second best, or if I do try and get what I want I end up alone.

God I spent half the evening mentally writing this post; in great detail. Now I'm just to upset and tiered, and wow, still have things for other people to get done, so don't really have time. So instead you get this vague cranky post.
