Out of the tree of life I just picked me a plum

>> May 2, 2009

Apparently, if you want to survive and make your name come up in blogger lights, you're not supposed to blog on the weekends. Why? Because most people have better things to do. Well, as you can see, not me. I have today off from work, which never happens - since I work in the fabulous world of retail, where Saturday is the biggest day of the week. I have next Saturday off too. Not sure how that happened, but we'll just revel in the beauty.

I am so excited that this semester of school is over! I really enjoyed some of my classes.. and really didn't enjoy others. I guess its a good sign that I enjoyed my French class, and my Social Work class. Since those are the subjects, and careers I will be continuing on in. At least I didn't hate my social work class and have to rethink this whole major, life plan, purpose thing! {again?}

At work, I am now the bra specialist -- well, this has been true for a few weeks, I just haven't published it on the blogosphere. Bra. Specialist. Ha. I wasn't even sure what to say when my manager asked me to be that. But I like it. I like the responsibility of keeping up with one whole side of our accessories department, keeping it filled in, straightened, and shopable. It makes the never ending closing nights seem just a little bit better. Always bras and panties to put back in size order. Not really sure why people can never put the bras back where they found them. That IS the purpose of the little size rings, to show were the 36A's are divided from the 36B's. Hard concept. I know.

It feels strange though, at work, because not everyone is a "specialist" and so it feels like there are some people that have been left out in the cold, so to speak. We all knew this would happen, it just feels awkward now that it has. We all started working in the department together, so I think we developed a really good healthy, comradery, that we now have to kind of build back up. We also are going to start getting "ranked" on the schedule after our 45 day reviews, which are on May 15th. So we'll see how that goes. I understand the concept, it just makes me feel bad sometimes. BUT at the same time, not everyone works as hard as everyone else, which is just how it is in life, SO I'm glad that my work is recognizing those that work harder. I just definitely want to be ranked high.

I signed up to do this blog improvement in 30 days thing-a-ma-jig, about 2 weeks ago. I haven't done even ONE of the things that it told me to do! Perhaps I should try it again. The tasks just seemed so lame. - sigh -

Last, I will leave you with a few of my favorite things. I love Anderson Cooper.. and I love BONO and George Clooney, so what was better than last night's Time 100 Interviews on AC 360?! Well, its on again tonight, and tomorrow, so if you missed it.. {Man, I should be getting paid for being a CNN promo!} BONO interviews George Clooney, and they discussed life and choices, but mostly their two awesome organizations (George's and BONO's) how they've evolved and everything. Love it.

And.. for the very end, I think this video is awesome. Its pretty cool the way our technology now serves as a political and social issue debate system. Who'd a thunk?
{psst.. they're trying to push down an awful, prejudice video that was made, called the Gathering Storm, I refuse to link to it.. but if you want to see it, search you tube}

*The post title is from a the song, The Best is yet to Come by Tony Bennett.. they play this song ALL the time at my work, and it always gets in my head.

OK so interesting video.... And i like your title for this post. You are so wacky and crazy! But anyway, congratulations on being a Bra Specialist?!?!! You are moving on up to the big times! Way to go for working hard!!

I'm not sure I like you calling me wacky and crazy. :(

Ashley May 2, 2009 at 10:38 PM  

You are not crazy. You are not wacky. You are silly. But good silly. Love the video. Love the Gays. They are awesome. We should have equal rights. I think its funny you're doing the bras. hey boobs! haha.

Ashley May 2, 2009 at 10:39 PM  

the hey boobs thing I just said reminds me of what Cessily was singing earlier at work. The Pussycat Dolls song where they song I wanna be famous I wanna drive nice cars and then Cessily said I wanna have boobies

I haven't done any of that dumb blog thing either. Well - I did the list thing. But that was it. The rest was dumb.

Congrats on the specialist title. :)

That's cool you are a bra specialist, haha. That is weird that you get ranked. Never heard of that at a job. I guess it's good if it does motivate the slackers.

Nicole Elkington May 4, 2009 at 11:53 PM  

Yeah. The Ranking thing is interesting. I think I like it though, because the higher your rank, the more control you have over your own schedule.. so that is definitely something I want to look into being #1 at! haha
