My last night shift at Gabe’s

So i just got home from my last shift at the store i’ve been working at since the Christmas season, Gabe’s. It has been my first endeavor in the world of retail, and while i don’t think anywhere i work will have been as involved as my time there, its definitely prepared me for the most chaotic of situations. I’ve met and worked with some fantastic people, and its bittersweet to see this chapter of my life close. Yes, i’m excited to be going somewhere new and being close to people i love deeply, but i will miss these guys, they’ve been the nicest folks i’ve ever worked with. My shift tonight was pretty easy too. I worked in shoes, as opposed to mens, and it was actually really slow for a Friday, i’m not complaining because we got out earlier than we normally do, and it was a nice night.

I closed with the manager that trained me and there were plenty of hugs shared with not only her but various coworkers that were there tonight, which was the same as last night actually, because a lot of the people i’m closer with weren’t working tonight. One of my coworkers actually gave me some cash as a going away gift and it was really sweet. They’ve all been wonderful people to work with and as i told all them i do really hope that their lives take them to great places.

Books that people read romantically but shouldn’t because they’re missing the point:

  1. Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov
  2. Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare
  3. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

That’s your opinion.

there’s nothing romantic about a pedophile rapist, the senseless murder-suicide of teenagers because families can’t get their shit together or the hypocrisy of the roaring 20s
