okay, so i’m really going to do it this time. going to do the whole 30 damn days of blogging. i don’t know what the hell my problem is, but i have one and maybe this will solve it. (don’t read into that. just agree with me, okay?).
DAY 1: A photo of yourself and a description of how your day was.
my day was meh: went into work two hours early. fuck. i read my schedule wrong–granted, better to be two hours early rather than late. after declining the offer to clock in and work a grand 10-hour day, i went shopping (okay, looking) for plates and other things to serve food in/on, and read part of the sports page in the merc. it was there that i discovered something so embarrassing, i almost don’t want to admit it:
