Hey flist!

So I'm back after a looooonnnnnggggggggggggg break.

So I'm unemployed. I quit my childcare gig in January after many months of stupid shit. I got written up and was told it was my one warning then termination. I had only ever gotten written up for tardies and that was 6 months or more ago. So I turned in my 2-weeks.

The stupid shit encompassed so much stuff.

-The management refused to investigate multiple complaints by multiple people over the same issues.
ie problem children
ie building maintence problems
ie lack of supplies for extensive periods of time

-Management allowed the abuse of attendance policies by certain employees yet docked other employees unfairly by those same policies.

-Major disruption of the efficient management of classrooms by ignoring basic sanitary protocols
ie Unfavorable working conditions for a daycare-such as no soap, no glove, no changing table paper, no paper towels
-Inconsistent routines for children-resulting in harder and more stressful working conditions
for employees
ie disrupting nap routine causing children to be harder to handle
ie Causing issues with parents
-Misuse and abuse of employee's time without compensation
ie I would go in at my scheduled time and be told to sit around without clocking in for 30-45
minutes at a time
-Inconsistent scheduling
i.e. Scheduled for two hour increments with two hour breaks in between
-6:30-9 then 11-6 6:30-9 then a break until 11 then 11-2 then break from 2-4 then
back for 4-6 (requiring three trips)
ie Non regular week-to-week schedules
-No support from franchise administration once complaints were filed against lower level management

I've been looking since then and can't find anything to even apply for, let alone getting any interviews.

I auditioned for a local production of Les Miserables. I wanted to be Eponine so bad, but I just wanted to be in the show in general. It took them 2 1/2 weeks to notify those of us who didn't get cast. Others got cast and were called a week earlier. I'm so tired of not being good enough for this group. It's really clique-y. I've been auditioning for them since I was 10.

Oh well, God has a plan for me and apparently this wasn't in it.

Hopefully the film I'm applying for will come through and this rejection won't matter. I asked God for the show and the film, but if I had to chose, I wanted the film. I want this film so bad and I hope I don't lose both.

I'm working with a nutritionist who is also my chiropractor. I love her! I've lost about 10 lbs in a month! I'm so excited. I'm only eating fruits, veggies, and meat-no bread/grains. I feel so much better. I ate bad for my best friend's birthday and felt like crap the day after-carb hangover, my doctor said. Felt like a hangover.

Anyways, that is what I've been up to.

So exciting I know.
