Working In Retail As Told By 'Gossip Girl'

Working in retail is exhausting but worth it.

Working In Retail As Told By 'Gossip Girl'

Working in retail is seen by many as a rite of passage. People obtain retail jobs in high school or college as a way of paying for their clothes, food, or nights out. It feels pretty awesome being able to go out on your own or buy the things you want without having to ask your parents for money. However, retail can also be a pain. The long hours, rude customers, and bad scheduling make it hard to deal with sometimes. Though the stores may differ, there are some feelings everyone who's worked in retail can understand.

1. When your boss tells you you have to work on the day you asked to have off a month earlier.

2. When you've been the only employee on the floor for three hours and your co-worker clocks in.

3. But then they try to steal the customer you've been helping for over an hour.

4. When you get your schedule and find out you and your best friend have the same day off.

5. So you spend the day sending Snapchats to your co-workers like:

6. When you're asking a customer if they need help and they immediately start complaining about their last experience at the store.

7. The customer that comes in and talks down to you because they think you're not as good as them for working in a store, so you're like:

8. When the store closes at 9 p.m. and a customer comes in at 8:59 p.m.

9. After working a full shift, closing the store, cleaning, and locking up, the manager asks you if you can stay a little bit later to help with stock.

10. The next day when your co-worker calls you at 6 a.m. because they can't make the opening shift.

11. Wondering if this job is really worth the aching back and feet.

12. But then you get your paycheck and remember why you stay.

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

bruce springsteen album cover born in the usa

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.
