Tight Like Family

After a long and serious talk about how bad we have been at keeping the store clean yesterday, the store manager described all of us original (and by original I mean those of us who have been there since the opening) employees as family. :’) It is exactly how I’ve felt for awhile now. Some of us have gotten so close and we all look out for each other. They have all changed my life for the better. Even the new employees (being there only about a month or so) have become a part of the close knit we are. The newer employees, those who have only been there two weeks or so, we’re still getting to know.

It breaks my heart though when coworkers leave. The most recent to leave, Jeffrey and Emily H., two of my favorite people gone for college, but promised to come back for the holidays. The upside to my abandonment is knowing I will see them again :P and meeting new people isn’t too bad either. ;)

Jeff and I have worked together since opening and as much as he gets on my nerves at times, I love him to death. Emily had only been here a little over month, but right off the bat, we got along really well. I adore that girl! I love my job and even though we get a little under each others skin at times, I really do love the people I work with.❤

Sneak Peak of my short story entitled 'She'.

“She was stuck, and falling deeper into this big, deep, black hole. It was sucking the very life out of her.  She felt she had no soul. Truth is, she felt she had nowhere to go, but away. Away seemed like the safest and easiest place to go.”

It’s still a work in progress; nowhere near complete. I’m not ready to post what I have written out at this stage in the story.

Girl I Know

Band Tee's aren't exactly allowed at work, but they aren't not allowed either. As long as we dress them up or make them look "fashionable". For me, as a girl, I find it relatively easy. I curl my hair, wear some lipstick (I always do anyway), pair it with a skirt, some boots and voila!

When She Begins

I bought these pants a few weeks back and couldn’t find anything in my closet to wear them with. The chiffon blouse arrived about two weeks ago in our store (I work at Tilly’s) and I fell in lust. I had to have it and I knew exactly what to wear it with! I added the denim vest to add a little modesty to the look.

Hype my look?

Vote for me for Chictopia’s ‘Spring Bloom Contest’?

I wanted to look punk rock for the punk rock show ;)

I completely demolished my "No Bullshit Just Rock & Roll" Just Like Thieves shirt. I cutout all the words and sewed them onto a plain white t-shirt. The front said "No Bullshit". I sewed on the "Just Like Thieves" logo at the bottom left corner, and on the back I sewed on "Just Rock & Roll" I got a few compliments here and there on my shirt(:

Failed Friendships

It’s a sad thing to lose friends. Especially those you considered very close to you. Life is tormenting at times, and without friends to help you keep your chin up or put a smile on your face when times are rough, just plain sucks. It’s one of the most hurtful things to have someone you care about, ignore your existence and then point the finger at you. Maybe you had some fault, but they should be the ones to tell you how they feel. It can’t be completely your fault. Things could be mended with a heart to heart, but someone has to be the first to open up. If you don’t think the other person will, then you should. It could be that the other person has no idea of what they are doing or that they are doing anything wrong.

I have felt ignored by certain people in my life. One being my best friend of eight years. I felt abandoned by her, never mentioned a thing. I just moved on with my life and ignored her. She seemed to be too caught up with her personal life and other friends she had made when she moved to think about me. Nowadays, she's the one who feels abandoned by me. I'm still too scared to speak my feelings to her. I know she won't think the same as I do. Nothing was ever done with bad intentions on my behalf or hers. We don't speak anymore. But hey, we'll both live. I'll make new friends and the routine will continue.

When the time comes, your friends will show their true colors. Only your true friends will stand by your side. Every relationship no matter what shape or form, will have a few rough patches here and there. If the relationship becomes too unhealthy, then maybe it is time leave your friend behind. You will live, and so will they. Be grateful for those you have in your life, good friends are hard to come by. Keep your head up high, a smile on your face, good people by your side and move on with your life.

Good news/Bad news

Good news! I finally got the issue of my lost paycheck resolved.
Bad news, my favorite jeans ripped /:
Took a short trip to the library before stopping by my place of work, and the moment I sat down in the car, I heard a rip sound. Fortunately, it was on the inseam so it wasn’t too noticeable, unless you decided to walk behind me and stared at my ass the whole time.
Hype my look?

On a brighter note, I found these gems recently.
