word verifications on tinypic are now real words/ mini-sentences/ hilarious

Here's an outfit I wore a jolly long time ago. Like, way back. Like, I KNOW I DON'T UPDATE MY BLOG ENOUGH SO GO AWAY. (But stay. You make me feel ~special~). Despite the length between present day and back-in-the-day-when-I-wore-this, I still remember the process clearly. I.e. I stared at the mirror approximately 189 times before I went out. (And, hey, I'm a narcissist (duh. exhibition: this blog.), but even that's pushing it.) My palms were sweating, my heart was beating. "Is this too much?" I asked myself, bottom lip trembling in fear. However, I held my head high. My chest back. My feat stomping it. And to my utter surprise, I had a surprisingly GLORIOUS FEEDBACK. This involved a "Girl, I love your SWAGGG" high five from a wonderful random on the street and an indirect lead towards a new job offer. WHAT WHATTTT. The moral of the story? Risk taking is glorious. The end.

By the way, this smashing sweater of mine (my cousin claims it could be an awesome "ugly sweater party" sweater, but I enjoy it delightfully) now boasts a glorious story. Which goes by the name of a woman once offered to pay me $50, yes $50, for it. (Side note: considering it cost me a few coins from the kids section of dear ole' Value Village, an "um, fo shizzz" chimed in my head. Unfortunately, I was working and I'm fairly confident that "stripping down and selling personal attire" is a breach of contract. Or something. OH POLICIES ARE SO RESTRICTING AND SOCIETY WILL BURST INTO FLAMES ETC ETC.)

Moving on from severely outdated stories and onto more relevant things... Good-byes suck. Today was my last day of work at f21. (This was due to incredible adventures happening in due time that will, surely, be talked - ahem, blogged - about shortly.) HOWEVER, yes. It was a last day. And it was sad. Where in the world did four months go?!?! I remember when I first landed a job??!!? What is this?!?!? I don't bid well with good-byes. I mean, I know we have the good ole "I'll keep up with you on Facebook" or "Post pictures and status updates" or the general crutch of modern-day connectivity... it's not the same. I know we'll "keep in touch," but human interaction is far more beautiful. It's sad because I find we don't realize how precious human beings and experiences and connectivity are until relationships begin to deteriorate or fade with time and life and that's-just-what-happens.

Considering my alleged social-awkwardness, my ability to actually communicate with human beings and, like, make friends (zomg!) has been, um, awesome. I feel so spiffy, being all, "Oh yes, hanging out with the coworkers after work." I have come to absolutely love my coworkers (they're the best!!!!) and I'm sad to be going. Oh, boo. Now let me start bawling my eyes out about next chapters and moving on and lost connections here, all over my computer, at good ole 2:47am. I don't even know how coherent I am at this time - after an 8 hour shift, MIGHT I ADD - and how my fingers are even managing to type words without that ungodly red squiggle underneath it. (I'm amazing, I suppose.)

I guess, the moral of this story, is just that: good-byes suck. I'm thankful for all the beautiful people I've gotten to meet. It has been a wonderful delight. I feel like coating this with more cheese, but I am sincere when I say that I've had an incredible last few months with awesome people. Kisses and hugs and I'll miss yas!

Oh, life...

What are times when you've had to say "good-bye"?

Lexy, your sweater is fab! I wish I had one - there are so many fun things to do with it!
and I also wanted to apologise - I don't really have time to read your post (but I'm sure the words are good as usual).

Aweeausdhasf such a saddish almost little post near the end. :( Goodbyes do suck. I hated the last day of high school. I know that 98% of the people I knew there I could care less if I saw again, but there were the 2% that made it worth it who I barely get to see now, and I agree, Facebook is DEFINITELY not as good as actually seeing them. Dayum girl. Preach.

ANYWAY. This outfit is bold, and I would have been one of those people to high five you on the streets. I do that . Work that kids section sweater. I do like the pom poms on the bottom, they are so eccentic and fun what. I wish I could pull 'em off. And your big blue bow! It's weird how you made blue seem like a neutral in this outfit. You got the powers, gurlfran.

LOOOVE, your blogfran, Ali

50 bucks? Whaa? But, seriously, I love this sweater! It's one of my favourite pieces you wear. :) I once got the word "impowerment" as a word verification, which I thought was mighty cool ...

I have a fun story for you. Today I was browsing my local thrift store when I came across a blazer that was the most colorful/bright/bold/loud (in a good way) floral print I have ever seen in person, and I immediatly thought "dude. Lexy would be all over this." (we're on a first name basis in my head, hope that's ok) And then I was like, "I want to tell her about it, but I don't want to be all weird and comment on a random old post." But then, what do 'ya know; a new post for me to comment on.

I considered buying it and being and awesome risk taker like you, but I stepped away for two seconds and a lady grabbed it for an 80's party she and her friend were throwing. Bummer.

Eli said...

Oooh wish you well in your new job/work endeavors! I'm a firm believer that things happen for a reason, and you seem to be very positive about your changes!!

happy new year! Enjoyed your blog the whole 2011, here's to 2012 :)

Audrey Allure said...

That is such a cute sweater! I hate goodbyes too - I almost didn't want to leave at one of my internships, but we all still keep in touch :) Hope you have a spectacular NYE & New Year's!

LV said...

That is such a fun sweater! I hate goodbyes too. The worst goodbye to to people you may never see again, like when I left an old job for a new one and had to say goodbye to so many friends.

You look so awesome. I would so buy that sweater. It's incredible cool. Ahhhhh, you worked at f21. If I had known I would have totally walked in to say hi! I'd love to meet bloggers around me.

Anyways HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! I hope you have an incredible new year. Yay 2012!

Goodbye's suck indeed. But it's good you had such an amazing time. Your outfit is back to it's colourful self. I love the bow in your hair!

I don't like saying goodbye, but everytime I had to move I had to say it. And way back when, when facebook hadn't got as big and I was just a kid we just lost contact. Hurrah for the digital-era!

Meg said...

Goodbyes can be really rough. Saying goodbye to my family after spending Christmas with them was tough. I miss them already. :(

Also tough were the goodbyes at my last job - I really loved the work and all my colleagues. I didn't want to leave! Here's hoping I love my new job just as much, and that you love your new opportunity too! Can't wait to hear more about it. ;)

Eline said...

AAAAHH! I cannot get over that wool sweater thing with the pompoms? AMAZING. Also so so good with the pattern of the trousers which reminds me of the early 90s together with the jeans vest! Perfect babe.
