I’m a poor and broke unfortunate soul

Its Thursday morning. I didn’t sleep last night. Instead, I slept right after my Wednesday classes until about 11pm. I got up, and then laid back down and watched random television programs like Hoarders and Long Island Medium until I decided to print off a few shipping labels in my dorm’s computer lab (The shipping labels are for my textbooks that I’m having sent in to make some $$$).

Today I’m pretty nervous. I have a second job interview at H&M later on this afternoon. I went in last week and made what I thought was a good first impression to the two creative directors. Cross your fingers! I’m not sure what a second interview means; the woman who called me asked if I could come in today and talk to another manager. Is that good? Who the hell knows…but getting a call back has to mean I stuck some interest in them :DDDD My life is depending on this job. Not only would it be major brownie points to have a job at a clothing store, especially at the amazing H&M, but it’s definitely a confidence boost for me. I’ll share a little secret: there’s a guy I’m crushing on that I know loves H&M…if I get a job here this would be a major shared interest! With crushes aside, I have been wanting to gain retail experience; really when you think about it, a clothing store job is definitely a teenagers dream. I’m just sick and tired of being broke, and working at a fast food restaurant during the summers.

H&M would be a match made in heaven for me: I love their clothes, the ambience, the energy, the workers, did I mention I love the clothes. Their apperal seems to be the best price out there. Being in Chicago, good deals are hard to come by. Also, H&M’s quality is amazing; a button-up shirt I purchased last year has just recently started to fade…and I’ve worn it quite a lot. Since I’m so self-conscious of what I’m wearing, getting that employee discount will be a big help in getting a new wardrobe. Have you seen the workers at H&M…they’re so fashionable. Still, it can be intimidating to have an interview there. I had bought a sweater the day before the interview and a pair of boots from Forever 21 so that I was on my game. My friends’ reassured me I looked the part (and I had a fresh haircut at Sassoon Academy hours before my interview). Worker along side my stylish coworkers will hopefully help me to become a fashionista (even though I’ve mentioned that I hate that word).

I hope all goes well. If I don’t get this job I’ll have no money for my laptop payments, my loan payments, or groceries to feed myself. >< And even if I do get the job, I’m going to need a good $100+ so I can pick up a few things to put outfits together. I can’t work at H&M while wearing Old Navy hoodies…it seems like Old Navy is a fungus growing in my closet. (Sorry Old Navy, I love you, but we going to have to break up).

Enough of me babbling, right? I have to get back my The Sims Social on Facebook peoples. Until next time 😀 Stay sharp (how’s that for a catch phrase?)


It’s a beautiful night, and there’s nothing dumb to do ><

Hi there 😀

My first blog post. Well, I’ve blogged before but then dropped it since I wasn’t liking it much. With that set aside, I’ve had time to contemplate on what I want my blog to be: a place where my interests in fashion, people, products, food, and zombie apocalypses can make a difference in your life. My blog may not cure awkward situations or the flu, but entertaining you with my life may be an alternative route to your normal Saturday night spent eating Ben & Jerry’s and watching Desperate Housewives re-runs (…that may just be my typical Saturday…).

I plan to post twice a week. Writing down my ideas, thoughts, and reflections that pop up in my mind like an epiphany helps me to get my creative juices flowing. Besides, fame is obtained solely through the internet these days…who needs talent? Just kidding, fame isn’t important to me at all. I’d settle for just having Google pay me to have ads strategically placed on my blog site 😀 *Hint hint* My blog is a spring board for your opinions as well. Have a comment? Leave a comment. Share a comment. That’s my motto!

I feel as though I should share a few things about myself. I was born in Joliet, Illinios (represent!) and lived there all my life. However, I currently live in the heart of Chicago for university. I’m majoring in Advertising, no current minor, but feel that I’m going down the wrong path. Hell, I want to be a chemist, biologist, journalist, model, hair stylist, fashion designer, anthropologist, medic, musician, entrepreneur…with a minor in french, sign language, and snotty rich kid who gets what he wants. I can do all that, right? But in all seriousness, I dropped the journalism career because of high school drama that ruined that path for me; also, I would hate to have to interview random ass people. I’m not bitter…

Every post I’ll feed you a little more of my personal life 😀 As for now, I’m getting tired of typing. This is where I place a nice catchy goodbye phrase ______________!
