Okay, this is way too cute....that little Japanese boy I was talking about earlier...they call him "Tiny"....ha..ha..ha..ha...that is so damn cute!
Irritation, A Show and Cuteness
Okay, I've only been here 30 minutes out of an 8 shift and already one resident has maxed me out on annoyance and yet another is putting on a show in front of me.
The one resident, I don't know his name, keeps wanting me to open the door for him because he doesn't have his keys....wrong DA for that. I let him in once and decided to be nice, then he comes back again about 5 minutes later with his little girlfriend and was pissed because I had to check his dumb ass right in front of her. So he had a little attitude and so did she, but they were even more pissed when Laurence wouldn't let them by...I guess they got guest priveledges revoked. So he stormed out of here with her banging the door against the glass window...now he's really not getting let in again. Not that I would have let him in again in the first place.
Now, there is this little blond girl who is way intoxicated, I don't know if she's a resident or not, but she's all over this cute little Japanese boy and the Japanese boy is drunk too. He was kinda scared at first because she just grabbed his arm and threw him on the couch, but now they're making all nicey, nicey. The little boy looks like a skater type with long hair, but japanese style...so cute! And I refer to the boy as "little" because he is. He's physically small and very slight, the girl may very well outweigh him, but she's little too. They are very cute and obviously enjoying each other's company. Now this is the thing I don't mind seeing, just as long as they behave themselves or else I'll have to give them the old boot. I don't think he's a resident either, I've never seen these two before, but maybe they are friends of friends. They are looking at the pictures in each other's wallet......*sigh* It's just so damn cute I'm about to barf.

I was just reading over weds. newspaper and I read an obituary for former resident Maria Bertapelle. I knew she just had a baby but does anyone know what happened to her? Current Mood: sad

You know, working at the desk can sometimes be cool. Now is not one of those times. I hate this 12a-4a shift on Friday night/Saturday morning. I'm exhausted. I worked all day, had to bake stupid cakes for the stupid international festival and then come here. I am not happy right now. I hate everything. I hate everybody except Jared. Well, Jake Smith passed by and was singing and that was kinda funny. It brightened up my evening a little.
I've got exzema on my hands from over exposure to water. My hands are in the water all day in Central Supply in the clinic and they have me working Central alot so my hands cannot heal properly. I haven't had exzema since I was little. It hurts and looks ugly.
The sound of Laurence's voice is irritating me and I pray he doesn't come talk to me or else I'll have to be mean and I don't wanna do that.
I don't want to sleep my Sunday away, but it might happen because I'm not going to be able to sleep until Sunday Morning. I hate work. I'm losing my memory because I can't even remember Tarra's damn cell phone number and it's been the same for like 2 years.
And now I've really fucked up. There was a boy trying to have me let him into the front doors and I wasn't having it. I told him to get to stepping if he didn't have a meal card or keys. Well it turns out that the boy and his dad were actually staying here for a tour tomorrow. Yikes! I was hella mean to him too, I basically told him to beat it. Oh well, there goes any hope of me working desk hours during the summer.

So my friend the other night tells me about this thing called "myspace.com" and he told me to sign up and try it out. So I did, and it was way cool. I found friends from high school, and even more friends from chico that use it. It's alot like live journal, but I think it's easier to find and meet people. Especially since you can search and see everyone who lives in the 95928 area...tons of fun! I am writing this to suggest to everyone that he/she trys it out. It's free, and it's fun. Run with it. Current Mood: chipper

Jeff Steiner runs his mouth way too much to be any kind of trustworthy...he's a total weasel.
So, he comes by the desk at 6:45 am purely to harass me. Just a runnin his mouth, ignoring the fact that I am obviously irritated and not in the mood to deal with him. And he's just going on and on about nothing, about whatever flights of fancy are in his little head. Then I had to be mean. I didn't wanna do it, but at the same time I wanted him to go away really badly. Oh bother.
Too bad his mouth just trips him up, because he could be a real cutie maybe even charming.

This is one of the times I'm going to air any grievance.
The football players have no respect, and it bothers me to no end. I don't understand it--do they think they're better than me? The only real exception I've encountered is Kicker (yeah, Andrew, you're alright in my book....).
And I'm sick of residents that are so damn anal about their food--ie, the way one item of food might (Oh God NO!) be slightly touching another item of food. Live with it, a-hole. It all goes in your mouth anyway.
Christ. Some people just don't get it. Maybe it's because most of them were "celebrating" this bull-shit day. Current Mood: annoyed

This has nothing to do with Craig hall but I was wondrring if I could get Libby's phone number from you. She gave it to me and I lost it. You don't have to post it here so If you want e-mail it to me firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks in advance!
Can I have your email adress or e-mail me because I have a question for you thats not really appropriate for posting here!
And for anyone who cares I had an awesome time in Mexico and Im sad that I had to come home to this ugly weather!!!!! Current Mood: relaxed

So I am stuck in this in between place and I am not sure what to do. The other day my boss (the new lady) came up to me and told me something that shocked the hell out of me. First she comes up and is like..."So can you explain the hiring process to me?" And, I was like...ummmm sure. Then she was like..."I am trying to get someone hired and I need your help." So I'm like, alright. Then I ask who she was hiring and for what, and she tells me that she is hiring a DA. At this point I am insulted and in complete shock wondering why she didnt even bother to ask the fricken desk manager if this was kosher! Well boys and girls I decided to play Ms. Nice Girl and went along with it. So what does this mean, I have no say...or that I am not important to her. Well its now time to get her in check. First off I know more about this place than she ever will! I love my staff because I picked it! Who does she think she is? Ok, well she is my boss, but damn! Then she goes on to tell me that this new DA is a family friend. So I am like, just fuckin great! She has stepped on the wrong toes this time! So this leads to my point of this posting. I have decided to leave Craig Hall after the end of this semester. I might, and that is a big might, come back for next term. If another job pops up this summer that treats me better...then soyanara! I just wanted you all to know what was going on. I still have a large say in summer help, so for those of you DA's staying on please stick with the assignment I gave you on Friday. I was so mad at her after she told me the new employee thing that I immediately told her that I was leaving this summer for a better job and that I wasn't sure about next year. She acted shocked, and I hope she feels the LOSS big time! I can't wait to type my letter of resignation! Anywhoo, I want to ask that those of you on my staff reading this please hang in there for the rest of the term. Don't ease up and goof around at work, the end will be the most important! I don't know if my leaving this job affects your decisions to stay on or not...but you all should know what is up. I hope that those of you on my staff have enjoyed working for me. I hope everyone enjoyed thier Easter!
Lots of Love :) Current Mood: contemplative

Sometimes I wonder--would it be fine to live here again? My parents are pushing that option, but I'd rather live with Lana, Libby, and Adrian.....
And my parents suggested I apply to be an RA. Yeah... Anyone have some spare billion milligram pills of Prozac maybe? Current Mood: sick
|Monday, March 29th, 2004|
I don't think any of you know..but if you care to know.. my icon is a picture of my tattoo on my back that I got last year. =)
For any DA's or even Lindsey-How are the residents this year? Any better/worse than previous years? I don't really think they can get any worse but you just never know?
And another question just to start some conversation---does it make you feel old when you start seeing Residents who lived in Craig hall, in the bars or whatever? Sure makes me feel pretty damn old considering they were 18-19 when they lived there! Current Mood: blah

hello to anyone who reads this! My name is Jessica and I worked at craig hall for too long. I know some of you and I also know some of you would rather never hear my name again but oh well. =) I was told by a friend to check out this site and I happened to come across this. I think this was a gteat idea matt. So hello, Matt, Lindsey and Lana! Current Mood: sick
|Sunday, March 21st, 2004|
Little did I know signing up for Live Journal and searching for Chico would lead me to finding something like this...
I'm not mad. Little confused, and bothered. Guess now some of the conversation will be sensored, eh?
Lana, I'm working on getting someone hired for your Saturday shift. I'm dealing with unhappy employees, Andrew quitting and having to fire another employee.
Did not expect to see this... if you have any other concerns, please feel free to talk to me about it first. I don't mind listening. :(
Not much else to say... except this is going in your employee files! Kidding, kidding.
What a night. Current Mood: curious
Back at the Desk
So I sit here, back at the Craig Hall front desk until 10pm and I'm pretty upset because the cafeteria is not open until tomorrow morning and I thought I was gonna be able to eat dinner, now I'm starving!! And all the bebe kids are coming back from break. They all want their mail and they all want to check out movies. I want them just to go away. And if Lindsey doesn't take this Saturday morning shift from me I'm quitting. I called in sick once for Lisa's birthday and it was wasted because I really didn't have a good time and now I feel like "Doh, almost 3 years of unblemished work attendance, and I wasted a sick call for nothing"
|Wednesday, March 17th, 2004|
Okay, so I'm in here to vent. Can I just tell you guys that I am so dumb that I always get "got". See Lindsey always calls me and asks me to work a shift and she'll get me to work shifts that are shitty, like St. Patricks Day from 4p-10p. What kind of shit is that. See she asks me really early to catch me off guard and then she'll say "Can you work next Wednesday" and I'm like "yeah, okay" without even thinking I might not want to work because it's....Oh....ST. PATRICK's DAY! Current Mood: bored
|Monday, March 1st, 2004|
craig hall...lets see...what do you guys think about them advocating "responsible drinking" next year. basically, the won`t be enforcing no alcohol. Does it scream "lawsuits up the ass" to anyone else?
|Sunday, February 29th, 2004|
Well, I figured that I`d write...for the first time. I live and work in Craig Hall...and I can officially say that it sucks. The rent is too expensive and the hours are bullshit...I`m stuck with so many fucking weird hours and I don`t have a single night off where I can go and get plastered without having to worry about getting up at 3.45 in the morning. I hate the drama, I hate how everyone knows your business and I hate the food (no offense matt). The food is gross and getting old, fast. I hate how I can never get any of my shifts covered and I hate how the RAs (one in particular) are all up in my face. I can`t wait to get out of here. I can`t wait. But other than that, ALL IS GOOD! Current Mood: crazy
|Friday, February 27th, 2004|
It's just so damn empty... and pathetic looking... I feel compelled to write something...
This is a pity entry. (You're welcome, Matt.)
Craig Hall sucked when I worked there. Then as soon as I left, it went and got all spiffy-fied. BASTARDS!
Then again, the pay is still craptastic. So, neh. Still would've been nice to have a room as nice as the ones they have now. (Then again, it would be MY room, so lord knows it'd remain nice for about a day before my clothes and other shtuff exploded all over the floor. Heh.) Or the cool game room.
Bah-dum. You're lucky I got bored, Matt. Current Mood: tired
