for the love of costumes

I know my last post was a little down and out, but writing has always helped me process emotions. I promise that I'm not ungrateful for the house that I live in, or the fact that I'm surrounded by my family. I just had some things that I needed to get off my chest and vent about.

After I vomited all that information up and got it out of my system, I felt a lot better. I also decided that that should be the end of it, and from here on out I'm going to change my attitude. This may not be the course that I chose for myself, but it's where I am right now and I'll get through it. It's a season of life that is only temporary and who knows? Maybe after this semester is over I will never live at my parents' house again. So I need to just simply enjoy my time here with them the way things are now, with or without my own bedroom.

So. Now for something completely unrelated, let me tell you a little bit about my job so far. I haven't actually worked yet, I just completed orientation yesterday and I'm waiting to be put on the schedule. I keep checking back, almost obsessively, to see what day they want me to come in, but to no avail. Nothing is posted.

And so I wait.

I was all jazzed up to be a cabana attendant and bartender, but after orientation finished and they sent me into the HR building to buy my uniform, they informed me of the switch up. Apparently I was reassigned to a barista position in the Victorian house. At first I was super disappointed that I wasn't going to be learning anything necessarily new, especially because I think it would be really fun to bar tend and learn to make more drinks than just coffee ones.

But then I tried on my Victorian era costume and, well really. I look smashing.

the keeper, photobombing.
sexy and i know it

I mean, am I going to rock it or what? Right? Right. No one is going to be able to resist buying coffee drinks from me. I will melt them with my charm and dashing good looks. 

But really, dudes, that costume! It is not uncomfortable! Just mildly warm. I hope my building is air conditioned. 


  1. Love, love, love your outfit. Perhaps you'd like to look up some Victorian hairdo's. They were so elegant and you would look smashing in any of them. The Victorian era has always been a favorite of mine.

  2. haha! who'd have thought getting a costume would change your outlook so easily ;D
