|i got a new job :sunglasses:|
after a good nine-month cycle of laziness, self-loathing, writing, self-loathing, laziness, uncertainty about the future, laziness and self-loathing, i've found something that might break the mould. to celebrate: here's a list of digs so deep they reach the earth's core.
sun people sleepwalker
i am working at a bar with no prior hospitality experience because i have mastered the art of bullshitting my way into things apparently......no!!! the faintest whiff of nepotism does not help!!! how dare you!!
minutes of sleep
me: hello good evening may i take your order
manager, suddenly: oi who are you and what are you doing behind the bar
i'm fairly sure i've forgotten how to communicate verbally so this shall be interesting
kristall und isa
i also have to wear my hair in a bun and let me tell you fellas: i look like a recovering meth addict who's chosen a life of coffee with soy milk/listening exclusively to bands that haven't formed yet
my latent appreciation for idm carried me to and from the interview this morning, which only took about two minutes before the manager said: "yeah you seem alright mate, come back next week for induction, cheers!".......i'm still expecting more follow up questions and/or a camera crew to jump out of the bushes as if i've been pranked tbqh
no one deserves happiness
ironically, my current mantra is something along the lines of: idodeservehappinessidodeservehappinessidodeservehappinessidodeservehappinessidodeservehappinessidodeservehappiness
already holding out for the day doing this job morphs slowly and subtly into just another routine, and i can stop micro-managing my interactions with people i don't know; i will stare at the planes departing through the terminal window and feel not envy nor worry.

king of the jews
if i get fired i'm thinking the most likely reason will be one of the following:
a) singing jenny hval lyrics too loudly
b) slipping alcohol into a child's soft-drink
c) slipping soft-drink into an adult's alcoholic drink
d) telling someone who doesn't care one too many times, that my internet friends and i got a little bit gay over the weekend
me: hi how are you!
customer: good, how are you?
me: yeah great, how are you?
*glasses myself in the face*
|i will still hang around here more than i should!!! unlucky lads!!!|
|welcome to the bartending life, jack.. the first six months will be more fun than you'll ever have.. followed by bags-under-your-eyes, poetic gloominess and intermittent violence shuffle.. it'll be amazing! you'll get stories for writing aplenty though..|
|hell yes butcher! i'll probably be working in the kitchen for a while before they need me to do shifts at the bar but i'm keen to be doing at least something y'know? at least i know now i'm in prestigious company :pp|
|:] i know thanks yes agreed|
|Congrats Jack happy for you dude! Bartending shouldn't be too bad for you man. I used to work in the restaurant biz and I'm sure you'll do great!|
|Welcome to the machine.|
On another note I've always used a ponytail to control my hair. The other day I made a manbun for ironic fun. Like that's some hipster bullshit. But the gf thought it was sexy af.
So now I have an identity crisis.
|hell yeeeaah boii|
