Life Update

Describe my life at the moment in one word? Busy! Haha but things are going well. We've got an awesome new chef at work and the social bitchy problems there seem to be easing a little... only a little I am sure it won't be long till the shit hits the fan again but hopefully things can get sorted out before that happens.

Uni is going well, I am doing pretty well with most units though I still haven't started on my external marketing unit. I think I'm going to need to take a few days off normal life to get all my modules out of the way for that in time for my first assessment.

Steven has finally finally got his new car. A little white Astra that will prove much better on fuel that his old beast. Things with him are awesome. Bayley has been going well, just starting to string words together we think that before long we won't be able to shut him up! We have put off building a house for financial reasons but still want to move in together soon so we can spend a bit more time together without the annoying drive between Bunno and ALind.

So that's kinda it at the moment! Not getting a single day without either work or Uni but am fairly happy with life; and I know things will only get better from now on in!

So the only thing left to ask is, how are you going?

Hello Gorgeous!

Couldn't have picked a better day to decide to change up the blog because the wonderful people at blogger.com have released The Blogger Template Designer. Of course I didn't know that when I first starting trying to change things so after a good hour getting pissed off at everything because nothing was working right Steven says...


"dude this is freakin' awesome!"
then I say

"What is?"
Then he send me that link and I die and go to template designing heaven. It is so easy to use. You can customise the width of the whole blog or just the sidebar. Obviously you can pick backgrounds change colours and fonts and do ll sorts of wonderful things. Seriously, if you have a blogger account and you are tired of your current layout you NEED to check out the designer.

You will not regret it!!

I should probably ask what you guys think of my new look here :) I know full well that it won't be everyone's cup of tea but I think it's awesome but most importantly...you guys...INLINE FUCKING COMMENTING!! The one thing I wanted that for some crazy reason wouldn't work on the old template or on any other template I changed to; it works now!

Bliss

Love Caz xoxo xxxx

p.s. Give it a go then hit me up with a link me up with a link to your new style!

Worth More Than Money

I have this $50 note pinned to my pin up board in my room. It was given to me as a tip by a man who came into my work a while ago. I don't remember treating him any different to any other nice customer, he was an older man, I think we had a chat about this and that and I went off about my business.

When he left he gave me this $50 and he said something along the lines of how it was nice to see someone smiling and happy to be working and chatting etc as he left he said ''now you'll probably never see me again but thank you and keep it up''

Most people in my position would have been like ''sweet as $50 tip woooo'' but I felt something different. It is often the case being a waitress that people make constant assumptions about you. That you must be witnessing whilst studying because being a waitress isn't a 'real job'. Though at the same time they also assume you are stupid and their slave. Everyone who hasn't worked in hospitality assumes that it's such an easy job and anyone could do it. So it was really nice to have someone give me credit for being a real person. To say thanks and acknowledge that my job ain't that easy.

This happened about a year ago and I've kept that note pinned to my board as a reminder. To remind me that a stranger could have faith in me. To remind me that I'm a strong person. To remind me that not everyone is an arsehole which it can often seem after a long day at work. Not once have I ever been tempeted to spend it. It's worth more than money to me.

If by some crazy chance that man who gave me this $50 is reading this. Thank you. You kinda changed my life that day

Love 'n' stuff

Upcoming !RainbowBlogStar! downtime

Hey guys,

I just want to let you know that sometime over the next week you may come on here and find NOTHING. Actually..I don't know what will be here but it won't be this blog... I want to make a few changes to my layout as the current one I am using doesn't allow inline commenting and it pisses me off to no end. To fix this I'll need to mess about with codes and shit and so you guys don't have to put up with the annoyance of a blog that changes every 5 seconds I am just going to close up shop while I work it all out.

Hopefully it will all go really easy and everything will be back online with an hour. most likely it will take me forever to decide how I want things to look so it will take a lot longer!

I will send a tweet when I am switching off and again once I am back on so if you aren't following me already you should probably do that now!

Peace out guys

Caz xoxo xxxx

Aaaahhhhhhh

Sorry you guys I don't like doing this but I am going to have to make this my total cop out blog post to make the deadline for the blog duel. I have been working on a pot for Get Served but I'm having trouble writing it because it keeps sounding like shit. Not to mention that my Firefox spell check has stopped working so I have to check my typing mistakes myself. So here is my cop out post.

Though you may have noticed that I added a new page on here for an about me. It's not perfect yet i'll probably give it another read and change it and add some pics to it. Later on I am also going to add a page to explain this blog duel thing that I keep harping on about but haven't explained properly.

For those of you who do know about the duel and are thinking "err Carrie, why are you copping out now you have till midnight to write a proper post LOL" Yes, you are correct, however I have to go to work now and I am working till close therefore it is highly unlinkey I will get back before midnight to write anything.

So sorry guys!! I'd like to say I'll do better next week but I am way behind at Uni and Stevo still has no car so I won't make any promises!

Love you lots and feel free to write me messages of encouragement in the comments...or messages of 'stop slacking off you bitch' both will work ;)

Love Caz xoxo xxxx

Soundwave!!

Today is the day you guys! Gotten off to a slow start on account of us having to wait for slooooooow little sister (this is why we don't like going to Soundwave with other people). On our way to Steel Blue Oval now and fingers crossed the line won't be too long and we'll still be able to catch the end of Vanity.

I was going to tweet the days activities but Perth sucks all the juice out of my phone battery so my phone will die if I have twitter on all day. I'll try update it every now and then.

Aaahhhh so excited! Going to be an awesome day! Yay!

Love lots 'n' lots Caz the Minx xoxo xxxx
