I went to San Francisco with my mom for Spring Break
I haven’t had a great night and need to take a break from schoolwork, so here’s a mini-spam of some of the boring touristy pictures I took.
We managed to land the plane just fine… unfortunately it was in the parking lot of a Metallica show.
Guess where I’m working this summer?
Hints: Henry Rollins, Ian Mackaye, ice cream….
Yup, Haagen Dazs.
The global apparel industry is a global sweatshop, and that has to do with cutthroat competition.Robert J.S. Ross, a professor of sociology at Clark University and author of “Slaves to Fashion: Poverty and Abuse in the New Sweatshops,” says poor conditions still exist for garment workers around the globe. From an interview by @GlobeMuther, The Boston Globe. (via boston)
Finished! It’s not perfect, but I’m still pretty happy with it.
The highlight of my day/month/year
Today I went to apply to one of my dream places of employment, Old Town Aquarium. Of course I was completely socially awkward and uncomfortable when asking if they were hiring. This little girl who must have been the daughter of the cashier I was talking to handed me the application. I had time to drop it off just before they closed, and when I came in I told one woman who was working that I was dropping off an application. She asked me if I came in earlier and a little girl gave me my application, and I said yes. She said, “Oh, she was telling me about you. She said, ‘That girl is so cool, I hope you get to work with her.’” Then when I was talking to the manager he told me they were looking for someone with saltwater experience (which I don’t have). It doesn’t even bother me that there is little to no chance of me getting the job, because a little girl thought I was cool.
