I have been keeping chickens alive in our backyard for 1 year now.
I have been counting off the days until I retire for 5 years. Only 10,950 left. How time flies...
I graduated college in May of 2004. I didn't start my "real" job - you know, the one that kind of pertains to my major - until October 15, 2006. Thank you (I suppose), Bed, Bath and Beyond.
Bed, Bath and Beyond was the lesser of the 3 evil "transition jobs".
Sometimes, on the occasional night or weekend or even holiday, I like to walk in there, with our without a purchase in mind, and just feel good about not wearing the navy blue apron, not suspecting everyone of being the MYSTERY SHOPPER!, not worrying about the piles of unfolded towels, not wondering how long I can hide from a manager or customer in the stock room that exists in the center of the store... It just kind of puts things in perspective. I might go tonight and celebrate!
Remember: No matter how bad you think your job is - You could be working retail for linens and kitchen gadgets.
