I Got a Second Job!!

I work as a Co-op student @ the army depot making $12.81 an hour, great right? Wrong! Since I'm a Co-op, I'm only allowed to have 35 hours every two weeks, and considering the costs of gas, and extra things, thats just not cutting it! I decided it was time for me to get another job a while ago, and filled out some applications a few weeks ago. I went for an interview today with ITC Deltacom (a telephone operator service) and got hired!

There I will be getting at least 20-32 hours every WEEK not two, and the best part is Deltacom gets paid the week that the depot doesn't, so I should be STRAIGHT! They pay $7.00 an hour, and at the end of each month you get evaluated, and if you did good that month, you'll get a $50 bonus on your next check, which is a pretty good incentive to do a good job. My mom thinks that I'm going to quite after a while, but we'll see. I start training August 11th, and I'm just ready to get the money rolling in! Hopefully I'll like the enviroment, and there won't be any problems. I am worried about working taking up allll of my time, but hopefully it won't.

Getting another job was so necessary because in the beginning, I was ballin, and now that I can't it sucks! I'm getting that SWAG up again, I'm tryna tell ya'll. lol. Plus, paypal keeps messing with my account, I'm about to act a nut on them! Anywho, there are some things that I'm going to have to get ASAP like a laptop, and a new AT&T cellphone, because Tmobile sucks around here, and I wouldn't be able to do this without another J.O.B.

The Total Package Challenge

The Total Package Challenge is a challenge that I am joining on Long Hair Care Forum. The challenge is all about positive change, and that is something I am passionate about. I find it hard to understand why people hate themselves, because anything that you dislike about yourself, you can change it! It may take some time, but you have a life time! Thats what makes being an individual so wonderful! You can change at your own discretion, whether it be good or bad. I choose good! Ok, enough to it, lets get to it!!

The Beginning of a new Jasmine

My name is Jasmine, and I am 18 years old. I must admit that this blog was a "I'm so bored" kinda thing, but we'll see what happens. I live in a really small town in Alabama called Munford. Saying that it is boring would be giving the town some justice. Its so frustrating seeing things prosper around your area, and your own town just became a city : ).

The reason why I am here is because I want to begin a new journey. I'm 18 now, for some reason I know soooo little about the things that intrigue me the most. I love reading magazines about beauty, and I Loooove going through the makeup isles in stores. I feel like I have been left behind, and I'm going to have to catch up! I named this blog So Exquisite because Exquisite is a word I use to describe myself all the time, mostly in a joking manner. lol. I'm ready to live up to the true meaning!

I am beginning a journey to improve my life, and enjoy it. I am on a hair journey to improve my hair, I am on a beauty journey to learn how to enhance my beauty, & I am on a style journey to upgrade my style.

Its time to up my swag!

Thanks for reading!
