a more cheery post -- good dreams, new job, lovely hair

I don't remember any of my dreams from last night, but I can tell they were good 'cause I was able to get out of bed and feel happy today! The past couple days it has been really really hard to get out of bed at all, and every waking moment I felt sleepy and depressed. Today was so much better. Ben even commented that he could tell the difference.

I have a job at Wal-mart; I'm gonna be a cashier. oh yay. I have to finish up the interviews (perfunctory, 'cause Ben's already been told that I have the job), one tomorrow and one next week (the next week one is to work out scheduling and all that). I'm not really happy about it, but I will be once I start. I like being productive and making money... just don't like the idea of spending lots of time at Wal-mart.

My hair is wonderful right now... It's now about 44 inches (112 cm), over three and a half feet long. I'm in a long hair community that's been inspiring me lately, so I gave my hair a very thorough wash and conditioning today, following the new tips I'd picked up, and my hair already feels like the most lustrous silk -- and I haven't even given it a brush yet! and it's hardly tangled at all! I wish I was more dedicated to keeping it perfect -- it just takes so much time, and if I'm not inspired I just don't bother. But anyway, it looks/feels fantastic, and I'll hopefully be posting pictures soon. ;-)

Congratulations for job! Cashier isn't too bad, I was one and I got regular customers and ones that would compliment me and ones I would talk to. It's good because then you feel part of something. Get nasty customers too but then you give them the unshiny coins and crumpled notes. I only ever gave shiny coins to nice customers. Good luck with it :)

I like going to walmart around 1 am. Not a lot of inbred morons out at that time. For some reason they thought my friend and I were in a band, because of how we dressed when we would go up there in the wee hours.

Re: Rockin' the Suburbs
heh heh... I could see how they'd get that impression -- you kinda look like a rocker girl. ;-)

My dad works for Wal-mart (optical)... I think it's a great place to work, plus employee benefits and discount are very much so amazing.

I love that your hair is so long :) And you make me smile with the need for inspiration to keep it "perfect"... I definitely know that... My hair is lovely when I curl it, but it takes time... and usually I just do whatever to get by... but I love it so much more when I've spent time on it... :)

nod nod -- Ben is a manager there, and my friend (his twin) elya works there too, so it shouldn't be too unfun.

M-hm, inspiration is necessary -- especially when you're a long-haired chika in a world of short-and-low-maintenence-haired people. Glad I made you smile!

After finishing Basic Training last year, I decided that a hair length of 1.5 cm was pretty practical after all. But I realize that this isn't for everyone... ;-)

lol! I've always had an urge to shave it all off, just to be weird -- but I don't think I'll ever do it, unless some people I deeply love die. And it would take more than one death -- then I'd shave my head as a sign of mourning. anyway.
