If anyone listens to Country music, there is one fairly new song which has summed up my entire summer. It is called "If You're Going Through Hell" by Rodney Atkins. If you have heard it, you know that some of the lyrics are:
"You feel like there is a sign there on your back, that says 'I don't mind if you kick me, seems like everybody has.' Things go from bad to worse, you think they can't get worse than that...and then, THEY DO." "If you're going through hell, keep on moving, face that fire, don't look back, you might get out, before the Devil even knows you're there!"
The only difference between that and my summer job is that unfortunately the Devil knew I was there, but somehow I convinced him that I was cool, and I GOT OUT!!!
Ok, so it wasn't that easy, and it has felt like hell at times. Saturday's 2nd game of the playoffs got rained out. I have been praying all season for a rain out, and the one day I didn't...the game was called. That meant that there was a potential for a double header on Sunday. If the Orem Owlz won the first game, they would play another right after, which would then start a whole new playoff series with another potentially two games. I hated Sunday games, not only for the fact that it was Sunday, but there only ever was about 200 people at most, and so it was soooo slow, and there wasn't much point in us being there.
Luckily the Owlz got behind in the game from the first inning, and then got trounced after the other team hit a grand slam to put them up for good. Owlz lose 9-3. We were all sooo happy! It mostly meant that we could finally get away from our boss, whom we have all come to realize has been cheating and lying and stealing. Not a very nice man, so we all have felt as though we were in hell!
My hell is now over, and I can get on with trying to find a grown-up-real-people-job. I have applied at both Lehi and Orem Costco's, for their bakery department. I must follow up with them in the next day or two, and I am pretty confident I will get at least one of them. Maybe more Orem instead of Lehi, for lots of dumb reasons I won't bore you with.
Anyway, I have my life back, and that means trouble!
