Whoops! Here's the poem!

My name is Shaylin, I like to have fun
If you see my hair, it won't be in a bun.
My eyes are green, just like the grass
And I have the ability to shake them really fast.
If we had to compare heights, I'd say I'm taller,
Even though I'm two feet shorter than a baller.
My energy level is hot like a fire
And you won't be disappointed if you hire...
ME! Because I won't let you down,
So please don't hire that other clown.
Pick me! Pick me! You won't regret it
Cause if you don't hire me, you'll surely have a fit.

Shaylin Dewey.

(Loooong post about how I got the job and so forth)

I work at a place called Pizza Pie Cafe which is a buffet type restaurant with salad, pizza and pasta. I am the cutie behind the pasta bar!! It's a full time job (but only paying minimum :/ but it's better than nothing!) and it's fun so far!! How I got the job was actually pretty awesome! I took the day off yesterday from Synergy because on Sunday night I was not feeling well at all! Thought I had a fever, and all my bones were in pain. So I slept in until 10:45am when I get a phone call from someone I didn't know. I answer, and they ask if I want to come in for an interview at either 11:30 or sometime after 2. So I said 11:30 would be great, and I jumped out of bed and got ready super fast. Didn't eat breakfast cause I didn't think the interview would take too long. So I get in my car and drive for 1&1/2 minutes, then get out (yeah, it's that close to my apartment!!) I walk in and start talking to the girls while I was waiting for the manager to come out, and they told me that if I was able to work all the time (which I am) that I should just suck up like crazy!! ((P.S. this is the place that I had to write a poem about myself, on the back of the application.. I'll put it at the end of this post)) So he comes out and we sit down and start talking, and he's asking me a few of the normal questions, and he was looking at my application, and when he got down to the part where it asks for previous experience I wrote "I have worked in customer service (blah blah) and I love to eat pizza!" So he was like "Oh, you like pizza? Alright, HIRED!!.. Alright, anyways.." and got back to the interview. Then he offered me a part time busing job, and I was so excited! He asked when I'd be able to start and I told him "right now!" So he told me to go buy some shoes, put jeans on and come right back! Then I asked how many hours that would be a week, and then he said "well.. are you looking for a full time job?" (Sure! Whatever you have!) "Alright.. well, we have a pasta and sauce maker position available.. do you think you'd be able to do that?" (Sure! As long as someone teaches me how!!) "Okay.. go buy some shoes really fast, and come right back. Is that alright with you? Are you willing to work today?" (OF COURSE!!!) So I did just that!! My first interview from turning in around 30 applications, and I got the job right away!!!! Ah, I love it. And I'm learning very quickly, if I do say so myself!! I basically just served pasta yesterday, and learned a FREAKING TON here and there.. Then this morning I made the pasta, and sort of saw how to make the sauces, and I learned a lot more today!! (As well as making a huuuge pond of water in the back room!! Whoops!! :) And I'm pretty sure I get to learn exactly how to make the sauces tomorrow!! It keeps me very busy, and I love it, but when I get home, everything from my hips down, KILLLSSS like crazy!! But it's alright!! Worth it! Anyways, enough is enough. Here are some pictures of the gorgeous outfit I get to wear (:

I'm still finishing up a couple main parts to this page, but I LOVE IT SO FAR!! I'll show you the finished product when it gets to that point, but here is just a couple pieces of it (:


I never was an etsy looker until today.. I won't tell you the reason why I decided to look today (cause it's a surprise!!) But I love it!! I then directed my search to a blank book that I could use for a journal to put a ton of quotes in, like in A Walk To Remember (which, by the way is an AMAZING movie, and I absolutely adore Mandy Moore in everything she does)((and that's wayyy off subject)) and I found these that a word? (:

One (because I have an obsession with elephants) and Two (and more from number two here) And they are so cheap!!! $2&3?!? I'm really really tempted to get them. And yes, I know they're small.. What are your thoughts? Should I get them?

Then there's this one and that one and the other one from Barnes&Noble.. so many decisions!!

My kind of music!

Absolutely beautiful. No, beautiful doesn't quite describe it. Just.. enjoy (:

And if you want more music like this, go to and create a radio station and type in Barcelona. All of the music that comes up is heaven to my ears!

Kay and I were painting picture frames the other day and I had some extra paint on my plate, so I was just messing around and came up with this. And it just so happens to be Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so it's perfect! It doesn't look good by any means, or pretty or anything, just thought I'd share, haha

Job Hunting

has never, ever been fun. But now it's necessary for me.

I might not be employed with my current company after the 15th of this month, and as much as it sucks that I'm losing my $12 an hour with an awesome boss and great flexibility, it's also a blessing.

I've been stressed out quite often by some of the "boys" (over 30 yr. old) that I work with, it's a 45+ minute drive to and from, I'm always completely bored out of my mind, and it just doesn't feel right working here.

I'm really not too worried about it, because I know that I'm doing everything that I'm supposed to and everything that I can to find a new job. Plus, my boss is so awesome and won't leave me without being able to support myself.

Start praying that I can find a new job fairly quickly though!!
