Today was my last day at work before I leave for college.  It was bittersweet.  On the one hand, I couldn't wait to get away from the whole retail experience with snotty customers asking stupid questions and, in turn, treating me like I was the stupid one.  On the other hand, I'll miss the people--some of them, anyway ;-).  I have literally worked there since I graduated high school, and part time through the two years I was attending the local community college, and then full time for a year after I finished my two year degree.  It's like closing another chapter of my life.  I mean, I know I'll be back in the summer, but it's just not the same.  The reality that I'm actually going away to college is finally, slowly sinking in.  I can't help but wonder how people will talk about me.  The ones that reminisce about the good ol' days with their favorite store managers, and favorite co-workers that aren't there anymore.  I know the people that will count me as a favorite.  It's kind of fun wondering who won't.  Well, fun in a rather twisted way.  I wonder what aspects will go to pieces that I usually took care of.  Like checking the expiration dates on the Lindt and Godiva chocolates, and putting the hangers up in an organized fashion.  I've seen how much of a mess they can be when I'm off for one day :-).  Ahhhhh, but I won't have to deal with that any more.  I saw a couple pallets of giftwares marked "Christmas" in the back yesterday and I just laughed.  And it felt good.  I'll be able to shop on Black Friday this year instead of working it--although how much money I'll actually spend is another matter entirely! 

I'm trying not to think about all the stuff I have to go through and pack.  Like my clothes.  That sound you hear is me whimpering.  And books, and movies....yes, I know I am going to college to learn, but I have to have something to keep me sane!  Oh, yeah, and beads....well, those are mostly always packed in their little organizers anyway, so it's a simple matter of getting them into another box. 


I'm having a sale in my Etsy Shop to help clear out some jewlery!  So with the coupon code PACKITUP25, you can get 25% off storewide!  Go for it!  You know you want to! ;-)
