23. Married. Avid journal-er, knitter, sewer, bicyclist, reader, and crazy cat lady. Currently living in Ohio. Cook, baker, pizza maker, sometimes model, and expert pothole evader. I like falling snow, midnight paddles, whiskers, making things, plants, sharp cutlery, tea, hookah, and being human.
Anonymous said: Congratulations on the wedding! I hope life brings you every joy it can.
Not sure why you needed to say this under anon, but I do appreciate it nonetheless. So thank you! Take care of yourself!
(This post in a nutshell- being pregnant, overly emotional and letting life get to me are not a good combo.)
I’m a cashier at Dollar General.
I help at least a hundred customers every day.
To 90 out of those 100 people I am invisible. They don’t acknowledge me, my humanity. I’m just another cog in the system.
Often customers raise a fuss because they can’t save fifty cents like they wanted. People are rude, or angry, or trying to control their horrible children, or talking on their cell phones.
Rarely does anyone make eye contact. Rarely does anyone SEE me, see the fact that I’m a real human being behind that counter scanning the shit they want so they can break it within the next two weeks and come back in a buy more. Capitalism.
I’m a little bitter. (Ha)
I try to hold on to the good 10 people who come through, but at the end of the night I just want to go home and cry.
I’ve lost most faith in humanity. I want to buy land, build a house, and never come out for at least 15 years.
Did big girl things today.
Called about the electric and gas for the apartment.
Got the car title signed over into my name.
Switched over the insurance. Dealing with USAA was literally the high point of my day. It’s so easy to work with them, and they’re so wonderful at explaining things.
Possibly got internet service figured out.
Found a doctor I’d be okay with calling for a first trimester check up.
It feels good getting this stuff done, but now I want to go home and just read the rest of the day.
