...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
Surviving another year working in retail while getting to enjoy
time with family, friends and loved ones.
I just finished book 70 for the year. (My goal is 75. Will I make
it?) And it was STUNNING! I was sold when it was described as
Beauty and the Beast meets Phatom of the Opera. How could I say no?
How had I not found such a book before? Why had the idea to combine
such stories never occur to me? The angst! The heartbreak! The
whole hopeless romance! And I enjoyed it immensely! But...I have
one very big plot hole I can't get over. Plot dictates and the
female leads own powers can explain it away but I am not gonna sit
here and let that be. So here is my rant. This chick, Kate, is a
clarinet player who manages to snag a pretty hefty scholarship to a
really good, private, music oriantated high school. The book claims
there are only like fifty or so scholarships given. Now, her
scholarship does not pay all her schooling but it is implied it
pays for almost all of it. A pretty hefty, near full ride
scholarship. And she plays clarinet. Cool! (Continue in comments)
