I spend the majority of my working hours swearing at a monitor.

I've been happily married since 2007.

Absolutely!

It all comes down to what you consider is quality of life, a good balance of work and family and hobbies, and what makes you happy. More money would certainly be convenient (could buy so many dolls, lol), but at the cost of what? My health? My sanity? Working retail and dealing with rude customers is a tough job, lol. And there's this quote I saw a weeks ago that said something like this:
Person 1: What about your dreams?
Person 2: Oh, I dropped those for a weekly salary.

That alone made me think a whole lot more about my situation. >w<

Speaking of dolls, have you bought any new ones? Sometimes it's hard to resist the urge to buy more. It's a curious thing!

Well, the idea of having a 40-50k annual salary plus 3 vacations (or more?) in a year sounds awesome. Then I think about having to buy a car and drive to who-knows-where because I don't think there'll be the chance of being an ASM at my location. Plus my boyfriend doesn't like the idea of the possibility of driving to another store in another town. There's still time to figure it out and I'm hoping for an opening at my store. Then there's the "will I have time for working on my many personal projects" question which to me is vital. So I'm going with the flow for now. UwU

Have you ever found yourself with a similar conundrum?

Oh, but volunteering is much fun! Exhausting, yet fun. >w<

My boss is training me for a future Assistant Manager position, which I have mixed feelings about. Still loving Blythe and opened an Etsy shop, though I only have one listing for now, lol. Sold my MocaPinoRu and missing her a lot, but I got a Pullip MIO kit so she'll be my replacement. whee

Yeah! I log in nearly every day, go through the announcements, then log out quickly. Wok, work, work, always taking priority. -sigh-

What have you been up to?
fawn freckles Report | 04/23/2016 12:57 pm
