I keep getting this warning about my office products not being activated but these are legit so I don’t understand why I’m getting this message. And its very annoying.
So I’ve spent the last 2 hours cropping pictures from an old yearbook and I am so stressed out right now its not even funny. I may have to scrap this whole job. Because this is taking so much longer then I had anticipated. And staring at this screen like this is giving me a wicked headache. I really want to do well for this lady but man this is taking way way way longer then I thought because what she wants is ridiculous. I cropped 4 pages of headshots and I have 19 more pages! I sent her an email trying to explain that this just wasn’t possible the way she wants and I will talk to her in the morning when she drops off her grandson. I want them to have a nice show at the reunion but man there is no way I will have done what she wants done by next Friday.
Today was stressful but at least my hair looked good? I woke up exhausted again. I hate that this is the last week of camp and I’m tired every day. I don’t know if it’s the stress or what but it sucks. Though today was actually fun overall. Kenny was given to another class that had lost a counselor for the morning because of a broken rib. And the kids we not great. We started the day with a game and it went well but then things went down.
First we went to the circus and I found 5 kids standing on something that wasn’t supposed to be stood on to the point where a regular guest confronted me and let me know what was happening. I was not trilled. Colleen decided to sit them all out for 10 minutes, which I felt was long, but hopefully they got the message. I am not the best when it comes to calling those things. And honestly I hope Colleen and Kenny feel I’m pulling my weight in the class. I know I’m not the best at leading the activities but I’m trying. My personality just isn’t as big as theirs’ and I don’t always jump up to do things like they do. I don’t know its making me anxious but I’m trying to be positive.
Then also while we were in circus my one CT asked if he could go to the bathroom, which always baffles me but I get it theyre still in hightschool, but then he didn’t come back for 20 minutes. We come to find out he was on the phone in the hall. So Colleen pulls him aside and just asks that he not do that and just try to be there and present and helpful because we were short staffed and he was like “yeah! I just needed to talk to my mom, sorry!” and it was cool.
Then about a half hour later when Kenny came back the CT goes over to him and starts saying how he didn’t feel great and how he was sorry but he probably had to go home so I go over to check it out. And he tells me the same but then when I asked if he had told Jess or Amber, his managers, he looked confused and said he didn’t know he had to do that. And we said its fine just go do that so they can find someone to cover him, and he tells s that his mom is outside and he was leaving right then. Which means he had been on the phone with his mom asking her to come get him. AND HE NEVER TOLD US. EVEN AFTER COLLEEN TALKED TO HIM. I was so mad. Like dude I know your 16 but this is a job and that is not cool at all. Sure if you are sick or don’t feel well go home but you don’t just jump ship without a word and basically lie.
But the rest of the day went well. Nothing of note. A skateboarder did jump over Colleen and 4 other people though that was cool.
I had lunch outside and read my book and it was beautiful.
I got home at 530 and felt pretty terrible all of a sudden. So I laid down until 6 and then had some food. Breakfast for dinner. Then I sat down and got to work on this powerpoint. I may have to tell her that tis project just isn’t going to work in the timeframe I have. Plus she gave me another yearbook on a flashdrive but its just one pdf. One HUGE pdf. I cant do anything with it basically. I’m going to try some stuff on it but man this is not going well. Its taking forever. I mean put it this way, if it were a college project you would have a whole semester to complete it. I have 2 weeks.
I stopped working on that a little bit ago and started packing a lunch but felt dizzy so I came back to sit down. Maybe I’l just buy lunch tomorrow. I packed snacks anyway.
Now though I will sleep. Wish me luck sleeping.
