So over Winter break I haven’t been doing much but working and watching a lot of TV shows. My roommate keeps getting me addicted to different shows and it is really bad, because that’s all I do now. Here are the three latest shows that I can not stop watching!
#1. Parks and Recreation
This show is based in Indiana and is about a local parks department and the crazy things they go through. At first I was not super interested in it, but now it just keeps getting funnier and funnier. I finally caught up to where they are currently. I can not wait until new episodes air!
#2. Walking Dead
Every time the Walking Dead is on TV my Twitter feed blows up. A lot of people I know watch it so I thought I would start. I’m not really into the whole zombie thing but I thought I would give it a try with this show. Now I am officially addicted to this show. It is pretty intense but I like it a lot. I have not caught up with this show yet. I am dog sitting right now and watching this show in a house by yourself kind of freaks me out.
Greek is an old show, but my roommate has got me addicted to this as well. I like this show because I can relate to it! It reminds me a lot of Greek life at Butler to a certain extent. We are not as crazy as them, but some of the things are what I love about Greek life! This show has six seasons so it may take me a while to finish it!
Obviously when I get back to school it will take me longer to finish shows considering I will have to be studying and doing other things besides watching TV, but until then I will try and watch as much as possible!
Over this break all I have been doing is working. Work has not been too bad because the days go by really fast with so many people shopping. Plus all the college kids are back at work, so it’s just like how it used to be when I worked there. There are a couple things that bother me about working at the mall though.
1. Crazy Shoppers/Drivers/Moms
I understand you are trying to get exactly what your daughter wants, but if your daughter gave you a list from online we most likely don’t have that item in the store. If we did have the item in the store unfortunately I probably would not be able to best assist you because I have only been back at work for a week, and if you didn’t realize we have thousands of pieces of clothing in the store. Also drivers please don’t take up an entire lane just because you are waiting for a spot. You make it difficult for me to get around you and when I have only 10 minutes to find a spot and get to work you are making my life insane. I’m sorry I am ranting but if anyone would like to work a day at the mall you would experience these same things.
2. Crazy Work Hours
Because it is Christmas time the mall decides to open earlier and close later. Unfortunately for us this means that we have to come in earlier and stay later also… a lot later. The mall has been opening at 8 am and closing at 11 pm, which maybe helping but a lot of people don’t even know we are open and closing that early or late. Tonight will be the first night that I have to close with these hours so it should be interesting, and tomorrow I have to go to work at 6 am so I will see how miserable this will be!
3. Things that I can’t change
I’m sorry I can’t change the prices of clothing. I can’t change the fact that we charge for our Christmas boxes. And also I can’t change our exchange policy. I think people think that because I work at Forever 21 I have some magical power to change things. There’s literally nothing I can do. Please do not get mad at workers. It’s not like we look forward to dampening your spirits while you shop. If anything we just want to go home!
I did not mean to rant, but for all of you who do these things I don’t hate you I just wish you would reconsider the situation. While you may not be too thrilled to shop at the mall during this time, many of us are not too thrilled to be working 40+ hours these next few weeks. Anyway for all of you that want a white Christmas I wish you the best of luck, but Indiana isn’t going to cooperate! So here’s a little something to keep you hopeful.
