life lesson #1

I had my first real job interview today and I totally bombed it. Great way to go, right?

But it's okay. Being the freakishly positive person I am, I am glad that I didn't do too well because their pay was horrible. Just $1 above minimum wage for tutoring seven to nine kids (ages 4-12) for who knows how long! I would much rather get that job as a library clerk and they make like four dollars more. This interview process has however taught me a few valuable lessons:

1. It was good, "real life" experience.
2. I don't want to be a teacher, ever.
3. I don't think I would be a good teacher, ever.
4. I don't want to have kids, ever.
5. Kids can be stupid.

okay, that last one was a little harsh, but I'm just telling the truth. So to cheer myself up, I decided to post some long overdue photos of some recent thrift scores! Thrifting does cheer me up so. I wish I could be a professional thrift shopper, that would be the life I'm telling you. I would do it for minimum wage because at least I would be having fun and won't have to work with kids.
