Another day of no sleep in the life of Kendra! I got up and went to work and had to deal with the same bitchy manager from the night before. She barely helped at all (often times was on her phone or reading a newspaper in front of customers) and had a few moments where she snapped at me (and my other co-workers). Thankfully, though, we weren’t too outrageously busy and I was able to get out at a reasonable hour but it still sucked because it felt like every little thing might set this manager off while all the while she’s just standing around doing absolutely nothing.
After that I considered what to do. I was tired, I’d been dealing with a couple rough days, and I knew I had a bunch of shit going on with work in the next couple days. So I decided to hang out at home and rest, playing some Magic Online sealed with some of the tickets I had left. I would’ve loved to draft IRL up at the shop instead but with how light my last paycheck was, that was practically impossible for me in the here and now. I’m definitely planning on doing a couple of awesome events like that next week (look out Legacy event, here I come!) but in the meantime, I took a couple good sealed runs across all the available formats and had some good pulls along the way (Mutavault, Brimaz, and foil Spirit of the Labyrinth, to name a few).
After that, I did a couple small hangouts with some friends to discuss some of the stuff we’d been talking about in the last couple days and a few other things as well. My co-worker who I talked to the other day finally responded earlier but it was a very short response so she didn’t immediately see my response where I told her everything. I was nervous and talked about it to them. Besides my boss, she was the first recent co-worker I’d spoken to (I actually caught up with a couple of my old managers on my Kendra profile the previous night which went over really well) so I was nervous as hell about any ripple effects it might have. After that, real quick, another friend came to me and we talked a little. She’s very, very, VERY stressed and was freaking out. When she showed up in the hangout, she was crying her eyes out. I tried helping where I could and went off to bed. It was a little later than I wanted, but friendship is important to me and when I see a friend super upset, I’m not about to just leave them there. If nothing else, I’ll pick them up and give them the biggest hug in the world.
