SO.  Some changes are afoot, work-speaking.

But first, let me say that there is a father-type (his wife, 10-year-old, and baby are with him) in this coffeehouse and he is wearing a shirt that has a picture of a clown on it.  Ok, you say, goofy but whatever.  There is MORE to the picture, though.  This clown is bent over a toilet.  Throwing up a rainbow.  Can you imagine your dad wearing that?  I love it when hipsters procreate.

Ok, back to business.  I got a new job/promotion.  It’s still with the same system, but a different branch and I will be Manager instead of Assistant Manager.  Yeep!  The branch is smaller and closer to where I live and near a bunch of cool restaurants.  So I’m pretty stoked about the new place, but sort of feel like I failed at my current one.  It’s just so hard to get anything done up there – you can have weeks and weeks of relative calm and then BAM, something shitty happens that is scary and/or sad.  The problems in that area are just so huge that most of the time you just feel like the library’s a candle in the middle of a damn tornado.  I can’t help feeling like I’m giving up, though, which makes me really sad.  I just know I can’t live that emotional rollercoaster forever.

    I’m pretty sure this is where he got it. They’ve got some interesting stuff.

    This sounds like a really good change for you, though, so I’m excited!

    Found it! They also have a nice unicorns fucking shirt. Maybe you could suggest that one next time you see the dad.
