Life's been a bustlin' lately. I've been going into work nearly every day and picking up extra shifts which has left little time for much else. With what little time I do have, I love spending it with my little sis playing with her new Monster High dolls from Christmas or just giggling and laughing in bed. I'll miss her so much when I go back to Kent in a few weeks. We were supposed to go see Frozen tonight together but I got called in and had to cancel. Her big eyes welled all up with crocodile tears and she was really upset. But, I promised her we'd go tomorrow ♥
The reason for picking up so many shifts is I'm quite determined to save a lot of money for my Italy trip this coming fall. It burdens me that my parents have to help me out. I mean, yes I know I'm still their child and it's their job to take care of me, but the fact that they have to help me out with this bothers me. Not in a I'm-too-good-I-don't-need-your-help sort of way. Rather, a I feel bad that you didn't get this opportunity, and now you're helping me to make my dreams come true? I don't know. I already feel so indebted for everything that my parents do for me already, and I know they don't mind helping me out for paying for my semester in Italy (they're more than happy to!) it just bothers me that they always put themselves last to make me happy. So, any money I can make to go towards my funds I'm working on! Thankfully I love my job and most of the time it doesn't even feel like work at all (except when I have to organize the jeans--ugh).
Hope all of you are doing well after all of the Christmas excitement. In the retail world it hasn't quite ended--returns, exchanges, and gift cards GALORE! x
With much love, Lauren.
