This place is basically hipster heaven and I love it. 2nd and Charles is a chain store that offers tons of second-hand media (up to and including musical instruments), and bunches of fun nerd merch as well. There are rows of bookshelves to get lost in, chairs to plop down in and flip through that weird self-help book you found, an area to play games on the Wii or Xbox with a friend, and a whole mess of fun tchotchkes to look through on your way up to the checkout. My fiance and I particularly enjoy the FNAF blind box figures…although I just got my third of the same one (anybody need them a tiny Springtrap?).
Today was pretty drab; worked both jobs so a lot of it was spent on autopilot. But! I’m wrapping all that up with some selfcare and Better Call Saul on Netflix. It wears me out to have to spend so much time away from my home and my fiance and kids (they all have four legs and fur), but honestly? That feeling of resentment, of “Oh God I gotta go out and do this again”, that is just encouraging me to make this the year I get out of foodservice/retail limbo and get myself working from home in a sustainable and long-term way.
Feelin’ good about this year, folks 💖
