Hard to believe I've had to do that for this long.
Today marks my third year of working at the arts-and-crafts store!
I've been trying to escape from there since I started. That job always manages to make me feel incompetent, stressed, and depleted.
But besides my other part-time university job, I haven't found anything better.
There's this fear I'll be stuck in mid-level retail for many years to come.
Is this all I'm going to be?
Last week I found this wind-up toy some child left behind in the coloring book display.
Every now and then I'll wind it up and watch the spotted feline scamper across my workspace.
Something to amuse me and break up the monotony of it all.
I thought today might've been more meaningful for me considering the three years I gave to this place, but in the end it was just another day at work.
