It’s been a week since I got fired. I have applied for 6 jobs. Heard back today from one. They are seeking a more qualified candidate, awesome. I’ve read a book, “The Day I Ate Whatever I Wanted,” by Elizabeth Berg. It was very good. I took it back today and got a couple more, one of them being the Pioneer Woman’s cookbook. Man I love her so much. I kind of want to be her sometimes, shh don’t tell.
Conveniently enough, there is a Sephora right across the street from the library branch I go to. I’d been tossing back and forth the idea of re-applying there… then I remember it is retail (trying to steer clear of anything where I have to be overly friendly and cheesy). And it’s not just any retail – it’s retail with a bunch of girls.
One word: DRAMA.
So I figured I’d stop in before I go to the library, check things out. Actually I went to look at their skincare stuff. My left cheek looks like someone put it through a meat grinder. That may be a slight exaggeration, but still. My lady hormones really rose to the occasion last week during the ol’ cycle.
I didn’t buy anything (don’t worry Andrew), but I did inquire about getting a sample of something to try it before I drop 40 bucks on a spot treatment. Dark Eyeshadow Red Lipstick Girl looked at me like a moron (actually, she didn’t look at me, rather, she stared at my forehead, a.k.a. major pet peeve) and made sure I knew that it would only be enough to try it out for a day or so. Ummmm, what good is that gonna do, is what I wanted to say. I did not say that, however. Instead, we proceeded to talk about different ingredients in various products and about different skincare regimens. At the end of our conversation she said, “Wow, you’re smart.” And I was like, “Duh, I know.”
Juuuust kidding. Really though, she did say that I knew what I was talking about. Which made me feel bad when I left without buying anything (maybe that’s her sale tactic? boost people’s self esteem so they buy stuff!).
I feel like all this has been is “oh wow look how cool I am, I know so much about makeup blah blah blah.”
She did at one point start talking about the importance of enzymes, which I know absolutely nothing about. So I just nodded like, “Oh yeah, enzymes, I totally love those.” Haha.
I’m just gonna wrap this up before it sounds anymore stupider than it already does.
Tomorrow I really want to make an apple pie.
