Gosh, what an absence that was! It feels very good to be back, talking to you all and blogging again. It should have come to my mind that working at a (teen) retail store during the weeks before school would be crazy and I should have been prepared. Nope! Didn't even cross my mind. Poor Aeropostale has been swamped the past few weeks with people back to school shopping and I've been working every day making up for the lost employees going back to college + high school. I would have to say this time has been so rewarding even though everyday is busy. To help these young girls and women that come into the store is so inspiring. I don't just fold t-shirts, I don't just check people out. I get to help people find what they feel confident and beautiful in and make their days a little bit brighter. My job has been the biggest blessing to me this summer just to get hands on retail experience and to be able to help others through my passion. This week before I go back to school continues to be crazy with working every day, but I am going to try my hardest to at least write if I can't take photos!
I have a lot of feelings and emotions to document right now through this turbulent time of going back to college for the second year and all of the baggage that comes along from leaving your home town. A place where I've found myself comfortable and safe in again, so it's always hard (and scary) to readjust to putting myself in more awkward social situations and interactions, as well as, being on my own without family. So hopefully I get to write about some of these feelings I'm having and help any of you who are going through the same thing :)
Hope you all had a terrific weekend full of joy and happiness. x
With much love, Lauren.
