OH MY GOD FRIDAY, I can sleep till 10am tomorrow that is all that matters OMG. Friday is also sacred because I can wear "denim" "jeans" to work which lol if you ever expected to see me wearing plain jeans on this blog. But the whole point of my work outfit series is to show that I don't wear pompom headpieces or giant lace curtains on a daily basis, even though I wish I could. I am not special because I have a blog and wear weird things sometimes. I am normal human wurmbaby who treasures that one day a week when I can sit in a desk all day in comfortable jeans. Incidentally I also wear a variation on this outfit when visiting with my partner's family in suburbs, lest they think I am a DEVIL CHILD 666 and refuse to attend the wedding. Pratical outfits, folks!
Thanks to everyone who added their wonderful insight to this series. I know many of you are creative for a living, or are young and don't have Adult Cubicle Jobs yet, but that's precisely the reason I did this series. As humans, we grow when presented with things that confuse us or challenge or make us feel uncomfy or can't relate to. And for those of you who've emailed or commented to tell me that you have day jobs and CAN relate, please know that work is a part of who you are. And that it is okay to derive part of your identity from your career. Trying so hard to seperate your personal life from your professional life will only make you unhappier at work! This is opposite of what self-help nonsense tells you. But after working in shit job after shit job for many years, I have learned to derive some pleasure from work by throwing myself in it, by being present and conscious at every shift, regardless of how much I hate my job. It is not the easiest thing to do, but it helps. It really does. And for those of you who feel like your job only execerbates your feelings of WHAT IS MY LIFE LOL, please know that these feelings of confusion are normal. Most people, even grown-ass parental types, end up in vastly different places in life than they ever envisioned. Life is really fucking terrifying, but it is a roller coaster and you can never know what awaits you. Try to enjoy the ride. ♥
