I need a new job!

My job had been relatively low stress, just being data entry and all. And the benefits were pretty good: Flex time so I always have a 2 1/2 day weekend, being full time at only 37.5 instead of 40 hrs, purchasing extra vacation so I could have 4 weeks per year.
But it is going downhill fast. They just told all the 37.5 people in our department that we have to work 40/wk until October 17th. Of course this decision is made right after I start school and so I have to try to fit that in around the fact that I have 7 hours of school per week.
For those of you who don't know me, the big problem with this is that I AM NOT A MORNING PERSON!!!
And we can't work any later than 6pm because of something with the computer system. So I worked the extra 2.5 hrs into my schedule this week. Have to go in 1/2 hr early on the 2 days I have class. Grrr. But I can deal with it if I have to.
Then this morning we got an email telling us that we are required to put in 3 hours of overtime this week. This is in addition to the 2.5 extra hours I am already working. Since today is one of the days I absolutely can't work late if I am going to get to school on time this leaves me with only 3 days to fit in the 3 hours.
So, I will be a very cranky tired hellziggy this week as I drag myself into work at the butt-crack of dawn. To get there by 7am I will have to be awake by 6am. Is the sun even up then?
But we can do the overtime on Saturday if we want... Like I don't have better things to do with my weekend! I am planning on going to the central standard film festival for as many movies as I can hit, I will be going to CotP's Mabon celebration Saturday afternoon/evening, and I have CotP class on Sunday. Staying late on Friday is not an option. I already work extra hours the rest of the week so that I can enjoy getting out of work early on a Friday. If it was the middle of winter, maybe I would stay on Friday, but NOT during the part of the year with the most beautiful weather. Uh uh. Not gonna happen.
I soooooo hate job hunting, but I think it must be done.
