Maybe getting on here to type out an entry is a habit now after doing it all of November? I’m down again. Got the blues something awful. I was keeping something to myself until I’d manifested it ...


The best thing about work today: the dogs. Wednesdays are pet-friendly days at the Instagrammable set-up display two doors down in the mall. Yes, the display that has a $50 entry fee. And OH! Th...


I can’t believe this month is almost over! I always love writing an entry a day, but I sometimes feel at a loss for words. Today I had the day off and it was an unseasonably warm day. I looovved ...


It was a good day. I didn’t have to work until 1:30 this afternoon, so I slept in a little and got a very, very good walk in the sunshine with Martini this morning. Then to the grocery store wher...


Worked from 11-5:30 today. It was fine-ish. But it’s already getting old. Is it Christmas yet? I’m still making some rookie mistakes and Dick Manager is still barking in my ear piece, but I’m kin...


I’m tired of writing about retail. Plus, I’m just plain tired. I didn’t sleep well last night and then worked on my feet for 8 full hours. But that’s all I’m going to write about today’s work stu...


I made it through. It wasn’t all that brutal from a customer standpoint, but one of the managers was an absolute DICK to me on the freaking walkie-talkie! She kept giving me shit about everything...


Well shiiiiit, how y’all doin? (I miss Leslie Jordan 😢) It’s Thanksgiving and my internet’s down. I think I get a hall pass from tapping an entry out on my phone, yes? It was a good day, aside ...


Worked a long day today. A lot of things happened. Some highlights include: Giving my phone number to a smoking hot dude only to get shirtless pics (whyyyyy???) Having some dude tell me how beau...


Two days off in a row. Monday and Tuesday were like a very nice weekend. Tomorrow I will work a long 8-hour shift (I know that’s a “normal” workday, but it’s the longest shift I’ve worked at this...


I was kind of clicking around through old entries tonight trying to figure out what to write, and I came across something that I thought was hilarious. One of the last business trips I took righ...


Not much to write about today except I did a looonggg six hour shift that was really seven for various reasons - mainly they schedule additional time for breaks, etc. and THEN the time it takes t...


I don’t have much to say today except that I worked 4 hours in the store today. It was Saturday so it was busy. I don’t know if I’m doing a very good job or not. The store that I work in is actu...


I had to work at the store today. 1:00-5:00. I’m so appreciative of the half days to start out with because they help me get my bearings and not get too tired. Today was an extra special day beca...


I have been sitting here for a while trying to figure out what to write. There’s a lot on my mind - a LOT, but I don’t have it in me right now to organize those thoughts onto this screen, so I’m ...


Day #3 at the retail salt mines. Ha! I’m only working 4-hour shifts right now, so they are really quite easy, save for all of the new stuff about devices and people talking in my ear and figuring...


Today was my day off from my holiday retail gig. Here’s what happened: I emailed Utah Home Decor company to ask them about the status of my reimbursement of the trip expenses (esp. for stinky h...


Whoa. Working retail sure is different now than it was back in the day. Today was the first day on the sales floor and MAN, was it a LOT. First, I was put with a sales stylist named Sied. Appare...


I don’t know if this has anything to do with anything, but before I go into the details of the first day of my Holiday Retail Fashion Stylist job, I have to tell you about my dream last night (I’...


Yesterday I wrote about how I hadn’t heard back from Maria regarding going to see that musician she loves. I know she’s been in a funk lately, so I’ve been worried about her. Today, while on my ...

NJM #11 - 11/11 in These Foolish Things

Not much to say today. Cold front blew through today and I made a huge dent in the Holiday decor department - all just as planned. Still have more to do, but it’s gonna be cold again tomorrow, so...


Today I promised my parents I’d meet them at their church for the big annual Holiday fundraising event where they have a big craft sale and a big charity lunch set up like a restaurant. It’s alwa...


I’m watching the series Love Is Blind on Netflix and it’s fun to watch, but makes me think a little bit about that time that I met The Scot on Tinder while I was traveling through Scotland and th...


Remember how I stayed in a super gross hotel in Utah last week when the home decor/home fragrance company flew me out for a job interview? Well, this morning I got an email from the hotel’s corpo...


I’m over here staring at the screen, wishing something good to write about would just pop up. One of the prompts for NJM this year is to describe a DitL (Day in the Life), but my days are not rea...
