What am I doing? It's 2:53am and, instead of being a sensible person and sleeping at the moment, I'm reading a two-star book written for young adults. I have to be at work at 6am, a 24/7 coffee shop called Coffee Cartel where we cater to several types of vices for those who are on their way to work or school or coming back from one of the nearby bars. We sell coffee, espresso drinks, tea, quick meals, ice cream, desserts, and there's even a cigarette machine in the back. I've been working there since the end of April 2010 and since starting I've moved up from working the floor to being a manager. In addition to the basic duties of being a barista and preparing food orders, I also do the inventory once a week and call in orders from our vendors. Despite the usual issues working with the public entails, especially the specific food service issues, it's the best job I've ever had and I love the place very much.

On why I'm reading instead of sleeping... This past year, I had two goals (amongst others but these are ones I'm focusing on finishing right now), read 100 books and watch 300 DVDs, either movies or the discs of TV show episodes. Of course, I didn't even come halfway close to accomplishing either goal. Mostly, because it's pretty impossible to do either when you work full-time and go to school part-time. So far, I've read 56 books (I'm working on finishing about four at the moment, one of which should be finished before I head into work in a couple of hours) and approximately 190 DVDs. As a result, I've changed my goals to 60 books and 200 DVDs. This, I feel is much more manageable and will be the goals I make myself for 2012.

Why here and now? I created this alternate journal to be more forthright with my everyday activities. I also have a journal elsewhere but I've had journals there for such a long time that I don't feel like I can change the setup without disturbing history, if that makes any sort of sense. Also, somewhat recently, there have been several DDOS attacks on their servers and I'm concerned about the future of my journal. I don't really want to continue a commitment to such a shaky service, especially since ownership changed and that's supposedly the reason for the attacks.

I'll return later on tonight, possibly. I have plans to hang out with my best friend and the store manager of Coffee Cartel, Frogger*, to go see her girlfriend, Llama, at the nightclub where she works. This will actually be my first time ever going into a nightclub so I'm pretty excited about it.

*Nicknames for now until I can ask if I can reveal their actual names.
