Tonight, I got promoted. Again. Second promotion since the beginning of the year. This is good?
I started out this year (and I don't mind telling you guys this, not like I'm bragging) as Cafe Specialist at work, making roughly $14,500 a year. At the end of January, 2 days after my birthday, I got promoted to Co-Manager Cafe, which brought my pay up to $19,000 a year. Today, when I get to work, I get told that I'm being promoted again. This time, to Co-Manager of the entire bookstore, and will be raised up to $20,500 a year. Good news? In under three months I've gone up $6,000 in yearly pay. Bad news? I have to change locations. I can't stay at my present store, #626, and keep the promotion, I have to move over to store #628.
Which isn't really that bad, I just would not pick to work under the General Manager I'm going to be working under. I mean, don't get me wrong, he's a great guy. I've just heard through the grapevine that he's not all that great a manager. And that he doesn't really do anything other than sit on his butt in the office, answering the phone, or showing the occasional customer to a book they want. But, oh well, that's what us Co-Managers get paid the big bucks for, right? And, in the long run, if I don't like where I'm at, it still looks good on a resume that I can take to Barnes and Noble and get paid probably twice what I make now.( And now for the part Lyndee should skip )
Okay, now progress yourselves out of my bedroom antics and on to the fandomish stuff. I have recs for a few different fandoms that I'm involved in.BtVS/Angel
: Ulterior Motives by yanagi_wa
- A wonderful story that's just getting started. There's the Prologue and Chapter One already up, and it's promising to be a fantastic fic.Stargate SG-1
: The Cost of a Used Spaceship by Marie Blackpool
- A truly beautiful story. Plus, it doesn't hurt that I love fics that include the robot SG1.Stargate Atlantis
: General & Dr. Sheppard
- For lovers of the long, epic length AU fic. I was given this link just last night, and though I should have gone to bed when I said I was, I kind of got caught up reading this and devoured the entire thing in one sitting. I was a wreck trying to get up for work today, let me tell you.Supernatural
: Don't Know How to Let You Go
- OMG!!! I can not stress enough how much I love this pairing. Before this fandom, I'd never really gotten into the whole incest thing (unless you count Xander/Xander). But these two brothers were made to be each other's bitches. I can't say it any better than that.
Hope hope hope you enjoy. I also hope that I can get back to you soon with more recs. But right now, I am foregoing fic to read the second installment in Percy Jackson and the Olympians. You guys should so check out The Lightning Thief
. It's a new series by Rick Riordan, and is rumored to be the next Harry Potter. It's that good. I just got the book and I'm already half way through it. I'm totally addicted. So go, read. I swear, you'll enjoy it. And if you don't, you can pretend to sue me.
