Setting up shop

Today I got the courage to finally get the ball rolling on my shirt ideas. I’ve had these ideas for quite some time and I figure today was just the day to start.

Where

I’ve set up a Threadless shop for this. This was something I wanted to do for several years but never really got around to it. Part of that reason was I didn’t think I had the time. I also took the plunge and will be selling stickers on my personal site. I’m really looking forward to this because it lets me be more artistically creative.

After several years

Today I got home from work feeling a little odd. Well, not odd. Off. A little off from how I usually am when I get home from an overnight shift.

It wasn’t a bad night. People came in, ordered their drinks,¬†expected¬†things to be done a certain way. I get it. I’m used to it. At the end of the day, after all is said and done, things didn’t blow up, things got done, and drinks were made.

I’ve been doing that for what feels like a decade. It’s not true, of course. I’ve only been working overnight shifts at Starbucks for over three years. I’ve worked overnight shifts for nearly a decade though and in that time frame I’ve learned that there really is a large variety of people that like to abuse any system set in place by any company.

It makes me sad.

Truly sad.

I try to block out those pesky thoughts. Some days I succeed and some I don’t. That’s just the way life is, I guess.
