Working at Forever 21 for three years has definitely affected my life in many ways. While I met some amazing and also very interesting people there I also learned that saving your paycheck is more important than spending money on clothes and rings. Although sometimes you just can’t help but by things.
Every one in while Forever 21 will have these insane sales where everything is an additional 50% off of clearance item, which is ridiculous because items such as rings are then only 50 cents. Do you really think I would pass that up? This whole sale is what started my ring obsession. It doesn’t help that most rings there at only $2.80 anyway, but the on sale it just makes everything ten times worse.
All the rings I currently own!
As you can see from the picture above it might be getting a little crazy, but trust me it cannot just be any ring that can make it into my collection. I am extremely picky, but I will still probably be adding many more to this. The sad thing is that I know when one is missing… Happy ring shopping!
Recently our blogging staff found out that our boss, Kristen, is leaving for another job. While we are all very excited for her and the new job it was a sad day for myself and the 5 other bloggers. My experience at Butler with bosses has been unlike any other job. Many of the bosses are people that you can confide in and they will try and help you in any way. As Kristen leaves I wanted to share with you my favorite moments with my boss.
1.) Blogger meetings
Usually when employers hear meetings it always sounds like they are moaning and groaning about it and don’t want to attend. With blogger meetings it is completely different. I actually look forward to our meetings because not only does Kristen get us food, but it is usually an hour of laughing. For Kristen’s sake, so she doesn’t get a heart attack when reading this, WE DO ACCOMPLISH THINGS IN OUR MEETINGS. They are actually very well organized it is just that the bloggers are all extremely funny in my opinion and so we laugh a lot.
2.) Random times in Kristen’s office
If you have ever been to Butler Office of Admissions typically everyone’s door is open unless a meeting is going on. Everyone there is extremely nice and will help you in anyway possible! Kristen’s office is no different and I’m sure I have kept her from work about a trillion times, but every time I’m in the admissions office I know that I can always stop by and talk to her. Whether I have something serious or just stopping by to say hi I know that I will probably be there for at least 20 minutes and will laugh every moment I am there!
3.) Blogger Parties
Yes, we do get end of the semester parties. It is pretty awesome. Usually Kristen would invite us to her house and we would eat and play games. It may seem really simple, but little things like that is what I love because it is always a nice time to catch up. Some times I can’t read everyone’s blogs all the time and I can’t stop by Kristen’s office that often so it was nice to have the parties so we could all catch up. Also, I will miss seeing Kristen’s crazy cat.
I’m sure our next boss will be awesome too, but it will be sad to see Kristen to leave. Until then I think the blogging staff is just hoping we don’t see her cry, because then we will all probably start to cry too.
