I work at Medieval Times. I work in our ticketing department which is basically customer service. We are only open like weekends and its late into the evening and its been kicking my ass because Ive also been helping two other departments. The bar and event staff (security). The Bar is drowning and event staff is understaffed. Lots of literally running around the castle

nothing really notable has been going on lately. Just working a lot and trying to get everything back on track. My prius is finally out of the damn shop. Idk why it took them so long to fix the damn AC. Got the new Pokemon Snap and have been hyper focusing on that. Beat the game but am frustrated about a few of the levels. Like there are a few where its just damn near impossible to get the points you need to get to level 3. its crazy! and then like some of the encounters are weird and purely by chance. which SUCKS. So Ive been logging a lot of hours there.

work has been interesting. Mostly just all of us trying to figure out how to not fuck shit up all the time. And trying to help everyone else not get in trouble. Our new policies are no tolerance. Meaning you dont get a warning you just get fired. We are so understaffed right now that im sure our managers would just turn a blind eye on small mistakes.

life will never be boring. There's a saying if it's boring you've not lived. Or something like that i think i'll have to look through the book for that quote again.

So today was interesting. Its mothers day as most of you know. I had to work (which is fine because I dont normally do anything for mothers day anyway). I did leave work early just so that I could get a few hours of quiet time to my self and do some self care. So I went and splurged on some new skin care produces on my own. But heres a thing: I have a free trial of Curology, which is basically when a dermatologist creates an over the counter formula for you and then gives you recommendations. I have some really bad adult onset acne which SUCKS BALLS. THIS WOMAN! She told me that I need to make an appointment with a dermatologist and that I should be prescribed accutane. Which is like a very very strong prescription acne medication that can be REALLY harsh on your skin.

I am a redhead, so like UV light fucks me over hard core, and this medication is notorious for magnifying the effects of UV damage. Which is something I DONT want. But also dermatology is insainly expensive. Like CRAZY expensive. So Ive sent out a few emails to my local dermatology offices asking about pricing and what not. Im working if they do like a free consult just so that I can get a second opinion. On average ONE appointment can run (on the low side) $150. Dude no one has that kind of money right now. thats crazy. She also told me to stop using my BHA and AHA exfoliates and treatments that I literally just started. So I really need a second opinion on that one. I think honestly that most of this new acne is caused by having to wear and mask every day for 5-8 hours while running around like a chicken with my head cut off. Like I wold LOVE LOVE LOVE to get an actual facial but like...... DAMN SON!


Anyway, back to mothers day. I kind of feel guilty for asking the baby sitter to keep my little one for a little longer than usual just because I wanted some time to myself. I really dont expect everyone to understand mom guilt. But like.... I really needed time to my self with no husband and no kiddos. Im hopping that he played really hard and will be ready for bed when he gets home.

ive also picked up some extra hours as work as a bid to promote myself within the company. Ive been picking up tasks in literally every department that I can. I found out (which I wasn't supposed to because I am not a supervisor) that my department may be merging with another department that already have a hard time retaining information. Im not sure how they expect the people in that department to be able to learn our information (which is far more complicated and in depth than their own) and be able to actually do the job. This can actually damper my ability to move up in the company when honestly Ive been told several times that I am really the best candidate for a supervisor position should it open up. SO Ive decided that Im just going to do EVERYTHING in EVERY department so that not only will all of the managers be able to see my ability but also when the time comes the decision should be unanimous. I hate waiting for this when we desperately need someone to be in a leadership position aside from my direct manager in our small department. This dude gets NO DAYS OFF. Like EVER. And its because our general managers things that we dont need a Lead in our department. SO my manager is literally working his ass off. And all of the departments in the castle need his help CONSTANTLY.

If the merging of department does happen, that leaves the whole department with 3 managers and 2 leads (which is no enough leads at all for the eventual size of the department). So Im honestly very frustrated but im doing everything I can toprove that I have the ability, willingness and enthusiasm to get the promotion. I guess we will see how it goes,

Im also feeling a little home sick and wish I could take a trip to Utah to see all my sisters and family. So thats a little hard. Im also kind of struggling to get other things in order in the way that they need to be regarding things here on AL. I sitll need to figure out a new stream date for CN Takes over as I was VIOLENTLY ill that day and I carry a lot of guilt for that as well.

Over all, Im ok just a but frustrated.

Thanks for listening!!!!
