Currently out of work, fandom- and wedding-obsessed 23 year old woman. Expect to see lots of posts about wedding, job-hunting, moving across the country (MI to NY) and fandom!

Well this is just weird...

I had another day of orientation today. And you know what? It didn't suck. At all. We did things that were not only useful, but mildly entertaining. Like being given a customer scenario and then having to go pull together an outfit for the hypothetical customer.

Retail is totally not where I want to be with my life right now, but it seems like I could have chosen worse places (strike that: I know I could have chosen worse ~glares at Victoria's Secret~). Say what you will about Banana Republic, but they definitely know how to train their employees (so far I've had three days of training. I might have one more day since today we couldn't go as in depth as usual thanks to the usual trainer being out sick).

Yeah, that's pretty much all I've got. The library is finally starting to deliver on some of my holds, so I picked up five shiny new books after work:

  • The Ghosts of Kerfol
  • The Astonishing Adventures of Fanboy and Goth Girl
  • Hero
  • Dirty Work
  • The Dead and the Gone

Super excited to start reading them :-) I think I'm going to start with the Ghosts of Kerfol, simply because that one was actually recommended to me, and then figure it out from there. If I were working again this week I'd save the smaller books for the subway (since so far I've only been going to work during the morning rush and we get so packed into the subway sometimes there literally isn't room for me to hold a book), but since I don't work again, I'm free to do whatever I want :-)

In other news: poor Billy is sick today. And he stepped on Gopher's (our cat) tail this morning, so Gopher is sulking. And I think Cricket (another cat) is sick, too, because she keeps cowering in corners and won't even eat her treats. Hopefully she can get over whatever it is on her own - we can't afford to have a sick cat right now.
