"You are a woman. Skin and bones, veins and nerves, hair and sweat. You are not made of metaphors. Not apologies, not excuses."
I Thought I’d Have It All Figured Out By Now
But I was wrong. I don’t.
I’m a 21 year old college graduate and I’m currently paying rent by wrapping gifts at a toy store.
On the bright side, two days of working at a toy store have resulted in two wonderful stories worth telling:
Day 1: A mother came in to buy her son a dollhouse, per his request this Christmas. Yay breaking down gender stereotypes!
Day 2: A middle aged German woman and I had a wonderful conversation about each of our travels through central and eastern Europe. Turns out her best friend is Czech. Ironically, we lived in the same apartment building in Prague!
