As the only person in my household with a retail job, I work
weekends. My hours are all over the place. I do my best to care for
my dog who hates thunder whenever I can so he does not wake up the
rest of the house during the night when I know they have to get up
early. Is it really too much to ask that they do the same for me on
days they know I work early? I closed last night and because retail
is increasingly pro profit and con workers, I get to open tomorrow
morning. Or in three hours. I did everything right. I unwound, took
some melatonin and did my best to fall asleep. I got three blissful
hours. Then terrified scratching at my door woke me. He was
sleeping in my parents room. Parents who not only do not have to
work in the morning but were sleeping peacefully in the living room
when I got home. Whom I did my best not to wake or disturb. No one
works but me tomorrow in this whole house. Yet no one will take him
and try to calm him. Yay no sleep! (Continue in comments)
Just saw endgame....I have so many THOUGHTS!!! so many OPINIONS!!!
...I really want to reread a series...but I have a mountain of
books to read first...but it is a really, really good series...
Thunderstorm happened tonight while I was at work and I love it
when that happens! The metal roof makes it sound so pretty! And on
Thor's day too! Bright spot to a roller coaster of a week!
To anyone interested, I think the interview went well! I was asked
if I would be interested in a second interview in two weeks. Of
course I am. So crossing my fingers on that.
Time for the job interview! Feeling good about this.
I decided to stop talking about getting out of retail and do
something! So i applied to a local place where I can help people
and is much better pay and hour wise then my current job. Got an
immediate response and now have a job interview for Monday!!! Gods
I hope this goes well!
So...I really like helping people. I give them the benifit of the
doubt and genuinely enjoy my job. At least, I did when I started.
Now? I feel completely drained. I am so, so done with the people
who think they are smart or cool for destroying, cheating the
system or stealing from stores. Absolutely done with those who are
rude and disrespectful. I am leaving retail. I need out before it
crushes my soul. I love my regulars though. And the absolute
amazing people I work with! I will miss them. But I need away from
this soul sucking job.
It's been less then a hundred eggs since my shiny mega hatched yet
suddenly a ton of shinies hatched. Four boys and only one girl.
Perhaps I should go with the king arthur name for him and make all
the following boys his knights of the round table.
So far all i have is d'Artagnan.
Something that sounds knightly, please!
It took 13,925 eggs, two basically a month shy of three years, but
he finally hatched! Not a female, but her white Knight, hopefully?
I'm just so happy to finally get one! Mind feeding him?
I have so many books at this point that ads for books on my social
media are for books I've not only bought but read.
I love my books. I have invested in some beautiful book marks and
have four book cases overflowing with physical books. One is just
for books I have to read still. Yet I still buy kindle books.
Sometimes it's cheaper and it is definitely easier to pull out my
phone to read over a book. That being said, i still love my books.
But here are some of the silly things I find myself doing: using
randome flat things that are definitely not bookmarks as bookmarks
such as tags, clean tissues, receipts, and envelops; taking books
to places even though i know i will not get a chance to read, but
wanting the book just in case or even bringing two in case i finish
the first; pressing my finger to the page over a word in an attempt
to get the definition even though it is paperback and not digital;
stacking a foot or more worth of books next to my bed as if i will
finish them all in a week, turning off my light as if i can
possibly read paper backs in the dark like i can with my kindle.
Any second now, one of these eggs just has to hatch shiny mega
right? I'm like thisclose to having the second longest chain
I was so dissappointed in the last party I hatched, that had a mega
able and a shiny but no shiny mega, that I accidently released them
along with the 4 other plan ralts.
For anyone interested, I can confirm that Hell has frozen over.
It's about a two and a half, three hour drive away from me, but
Hell, Michigan, USA, currently sits at a frosty -2 degrees
Fahrenheit. And that is without the wind chill factored in.
Two months away from this hunt being three years long and I just
hatched a shiny immediately followed by a mega able...please hunt?
Maybe you can give me just one shiny mega before the three year
I do not have to work again until after Christmas! Yay!! But as a
retail worker, I deal with a lot. So far, everything I have dealt
with has been pretty typical of last minute shoppers upset that
they waited too long to start shopping and now won't get gifts they
want on time or at lower prices. Most are understanding and blame
themselves. But tonight I had a family that just takes the cake for
me as the absolute worst this year before Christmas. I say that
because I have not dealt with the people trying to return stuff
yet. See comments for the story.
is to have this shiny mega finally
But for real, to enjoy time with loved ones and to enjoy some
