Life's Like A Box Full of Chocolates...

As Forrest Gump would say, "My mama always used to's like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get." Love that quote and movie! Such a classic. This quote is one of my favorites because I feel like it describes the people that come into my job. You honestly never know what you're going to get with these people. Like the lady that said I was rude because I told her she came in the wrong door and that our entrance is the revolving door. (Did you see other people coming in there?!) Or the lady that said I needed to "police" the kids in the revolving door that we have. Like they'll listen to me. And then you get the SUPER nice people that don't care where they sit as long as they get to eat. Seriously, you never know what you're going to get with these people. The joys of working with others. :)

Today actually was interesting at work. Since I work at the mall at my job, there are a few restaurants in the "outer" part of the mall aka the lifestyle of those being Cheesecake Factory. They are usually busy and whenever there is a ridiculous wait there, the overflow comes to my job. Perfect for us. Except Cheesecake had an electrical fire or something today! So three local fire departments, ambulances, etc came and roped off the restaurant. It was evacuated and then everyone started coming into CPK. Yay for us! I hope everyone made good money tonight.

I had the fortunate Saturday night off because my brother asked me a month ago to babysit so him & his wife could go out to dinner and see "The Hunger Games." They very rarely go to a movie by themselves. They went with a big group of their friends. My nieces and nephew are currently zonked out in bed and I'm just chilling in the family room watching "The Blind Side" on ABC Family. I find it ironic/weird/hysterical that they change the word "titty" to "boobie bar" at one point in the movie but they wont change the word "b*tch" out. Strange considering it is on ABC Family channel.

I am so excited for the "Spring Break" I get from tutoring. I don't it since it is extra money but on the thursday of my spring break, John and I are going into the city to spend the day. We're going to go to Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum! I went there back in 2007 with my best friend April and went to the actual original one in London when I was visiting there with my mom. I can't wait to see the new figures they have. We're also going to go to the Museum of Natural History and I haven't been there since 5th grade! Talk about a long time. I am excited and hope the day we go is a nice day out!

I am really excited that I have next Friday off from work. Nope, didn't ask for it. And honestly, I just might stay home and ask my mom to watch a movie. We always say we're going to do it and then never do. Maybe watch the newer version of "Footloose" since I have it. I like nights of not going out all the time. Now the Blind Side has ended and my favorite love story came one...The Notebook. "If you're a bird, I'm a bird!" i have not watched this in forever and obviously can't stay up til the 2am projected finish time since I went to bed at 3 this morning but oh, seriously, I want to have a love story one day like Allie and Noah's!

Sometimes when I am in a semi zone at the gym and running for as long as I can on the treadmill, I want to throw my hands up in the air and wave them around like I just don't care...all because an AWESOME song came on! I am always looking for jams to add to my iPod/workout playlist so if you have any, throw them my way!
