movin' on up

Guys, I'm moving up in the world of bank tellers. Not really, but ever since I have been there the past three weeks, I have done nothing but training and have only been allowed to run deposits only.
I went to a special training last week to learn all the ins and outs of being a teller with our system, and then returned to my branch this week to continue running straight deposits.

Today, I had to take a test to determine whether or not I was "ready" to be a teller on my own with a cash drawer. Initially, my mentor wanted me to wait until tomorrow to take the test, and then get into a cash drawer either Monday or Tuesday. I received the test just before noon today, and decided to take it before I went on my lunch break.

I passed the test, and will be getting into a cash drawer tomorrow :)

I still like my job, but I definitely can't wait until August hits to have my own place. In the three weeks I've been an employee, I've spent almost $150 in gas! It might actually be more than that because if I paid with cash at some point, I have no record of that in my debit card transaction history. Now that's just damn ridiculous.

And I'm dating a boy. He's cute and cool, and he makes me laugh, and for some reason he doesn't mind putting up with my weird-ness. And I tricked politely asked him to go to a wedding with me and he actually agreed. And I'm pretty sure he may just be tricked into convinced to go with me to the Ke$ha concert in July :)
I guess he's a keeper ;-)

Other than work, I'm just trying to find as much time as possible to relax, and am reading books. I picked up a new book last weekend, Bet Me by Jennifer Crusie, per recommendation of my friend Sam...but I really don't know when I will be getting to it, just because I have about 15 books on my shelf to read...including the Pretty Little Liars series...which will probably be read next since they will be a little bit easier to finish.

I'm super excited for 4th of July. I know this means nothing to anyone but Americans, but it's for real one of my most favorite holidays of the year. It's a time for family, food, fireworks, and beer. and I love it.
