I can’t do Sbux.
Really, decease there is nothing wrong with the place. Well, except this: The Oracle of Starbucks, which is really funny. But when I stopped by my old store last night and looked around I wasn’t up for all the little annoying tasks that accompany the job – and having to explain to all my old customers why, after a year and a half, I was back. Why I had failed. Because really, even if no one else thinks that – I will think that. So, I will look elsewhere – I know the manager at the local tea house that I hang out at and I know she is looking for help. And how is that different you might ask? It just is, at least to me.
I don’t even drink coffee. I didn’t start during undergrad or the four years working at THE pushiest coffee chain on the planet (that is how I view them) or when I went back to school for journalism – so I’m not going to start now. Some people I worked with were really gung-ho about the whole “philosophy” but I just thought it was a decent job to have while I was trying to figure out my life. Or something like that.
So now I am weighing my options. I thought about sewing up a bunch of stuff and selling it but that is a big time commitment and requires materials (although really, I have enough materials right now and am still considering it but not as an immediate solution). I’m looking at places that I think might be okay hiring a 4 1/2 months pregnant woman who doesn’t want to stand on her feet for more than 4 to 5 hours. My Mum thinks I should be working on my novel (ha! which one?) but we can’t eat my novel and with no income coming in any time soon I have to start getting creative in less interesting ways.
I also have to post this blog soon or I am going to miss my NaBloPoMo deadline!
Here is what the oracle said about me based on what I would drink while I was working:
Personality type: Hippie
In addition to being a hippie, you are a hypochondriac and a health nut. You secretly think that your insistence on only consuming all-natural products is because you’re so intelligent and well-informed; it’s actually because you’re a sucker. You’ve dabbled in Wicca or other pseudo-religions that attract morons and have changed your sexual orientation a few times this year. You probably live in California. Everyone who drinks tall chai tea with soy should be forced to eat a McDonald’s bacon cheeseburger.
Also drinks: Beverages with lots of marketing that says they’re herbal and organic
