YAYS! I finally found a frigging job! I'm now working at Wendy's! Not the greatest, but they hired me on the spot, so hey it works! I now know I've got money coming in now and I can ask days off, so Otakon is a sure thing now! ^_^
and I start tmr, 10-2. :P I told them that I would prefer to work during the day, so hopefully those will be the kind of hours I get.
