Do you have a more clear picture? I'm not really sure what we're suppose to be looking at.

I agree, I can kind of see your shirt, but not really clear enough.

I love the bardstown road area! All the little funky shops and great places to eat.You might want to apply at UPS.Good benefits even for part time,salary would probably be better than walmart,and they  pay for you to go to school.Lots of good thrift stores too,and go to The Knit Nook if you like yarn.It's next to Highland Coffee,(which is also a great place).
What the craft store is doing to you doesn't sound legal.Maybe you're  not "scheduled "to work long hours cleaning up,but you can't just punch out and say seeya! at store closing. You are required to work those extra hours,officially scheduled or not.I guess you could call the number on the OSHA posters everyone has in the break room,you know the safe workplace,no discrimination,ect. ones.But sad to say the powers that be could make your life miserable.But if you're moving anyway,maybe give it a try?
My husband and I worked at a "-mart" store once.They would offer you full time hours,ask you to sign an agreement that you were really part time,so they didn't have to pay you benefits,and if you refused,they just found someone who was desperate enough for money to take it.Later they got in trouble for that,it was found to be illegal.So they now only have a part time staff,and wonder why morale is bad.Retail can suck!
Be glad your're not at wallyworld,or it's competitor.You would be depressed and bitter and desperately wanting to escape.The big box store I used to work at was so soul killing,I took a pay cut to escape.Best move I ever made.
I'm crossing my fingers for you.Something creative you could work on that's cheap-buy a inexpensive blank book,most bookstores have some on remainder.Or a locking diary to make sure it's private.If you've always seen yourself in a red trenchcoat,or wanted to visit paris-cut out a magazine picture to stick in there.Or doodle one,or just write a couple of lines about it.Dreams,hopes,plans,things you love,what makes you happy.It's small and easy to tote around.Be as creative as you like.Buy a box of colored pencils.Or gel pens.Or crayons from the drugstore-color is fun.Glue or tape in stuff that reminds you of good things-a feather,pebble,coffee beans,scrap of ribbon,nutella label.No one's going to grade you on it.Don't show it to anyone.That might help you keep your creative side happy.
And maybe a pair of earplugs and a sleep mask so grandma can't wake you up quite so early? Good luck!

yeah, it was alot of fun going there. He worked for UPS for seasonal help and was paid pretty good, so we're both planning on applying. I so went to Highland Coffee(it was very yummy) but I didn't go to the Knit Nook, wanted to, but we were busy.

I've been re-thinking applying at the big stores... too big, I'd get lost. I get lost in them when I shop there and I shop there all the time lol.

I just might do a collage book... I used to do them all the time when I was younger and had a huge collection of those cheap teen mags. I think I ended up with like 3 of them from front to back lol good times.

Thanks <3<3 lol ear plug just might help!

That SUCKS!  I used to work nights so I get it.  But I will tell you this..when you get moved to Louisville..there are TONS of jobs around here!!!  And ones that pay quite well too.  We live about an hour north of there now, but I can't wait to move back when DH gets out of the Army.  Good luck!

yeah, his parents live like... 6-ish blocks from Bardstown RD., and we'd stay there for a little bit till we found our own place. I feel in love with the area and the houses. I want one to make my own and fix up <3<3 But yeah, I could so find plenty of work and such.

YaY for Louisville!

I didn't hollow it out because I wanted it heavy-it's very windy here. You could definitely do that, though-or put it on casters to roll-they're cheap at the hardware store.

Ah, very good idea! <3

Well, from what I can see, it looks cute, are those numbers on the gem?

Maybe just take a picture farther away from you jewelry. Also, try 'close up' mode or 'macro' mode, most of the time it's noted by a little tulip/flower.
