Catching Up

Hey ya'll. So it's been a little while since I've I'll just catch you up on my life. In the past week or however long it's been since I posted, I've officially started my new job and I love it. The only problem is downtown parking. I have to walk outside every two hours in order to refill my meter, and for those of you who have been outside in the last week, it's been POURING rain. So in the last week, I've slipped and fallen in a puddle, been completely soaked, and had frizzy hair. (Luckily, so has everyone else in the office. I don't look completely crazy.) I've also gone to multiple church services at a new church and I'm really liking what God's doing in my life. He's helped me realize that it's time to start my life over. By that I mean, letting go off all of the anger I have left in my life, forgiving, and working on becoming a better person myself. I'm not perfect, never claimed to be and I have a lot of work to do before God puts me in my next phase of life. However, I have had amazing blessings given to me from God in the last week also. I'm becoming a happier person and I like it. So deal with it. No more negative Haley. Another thing that's new is that I actually have money and a debit card. (I'm telling you this because it makes me feel like an adult.)

So really, nothing too exciting is happening in my life, but it's exciting for me!
Also, if you see any grammar mistakes in my blog, I'm sorry. It's my blog and I do what I want. I also never said that this was a place for me to use perfect grammar. I'm writing about my boring life, I'm not writing an English paper. But regardless, if you do catch mistakes, I'm not perfect so........sorry dude.

Today, I got a free meal at Jimmy Johns. I may have freaked out a little and called all of my close friends to let them know that my luck was changing. (Too bad it started pouring down rain as soon as I got in my parking spot. My luck hasn't changed at was just a miracle that happened to me.) Checkmate, ya'll.

My Feet Hurt

My workplace is apparently the place to be on tax free weekend. Today, I was forced to work in the dressing room, by myself, while hundreds of people tried on thousands of clothes. For those of you who have never worked retail, you have to sort the clothes into like forty different sections, all on separate racks, according to size, number value, and department. Also, all of the clothes have to be facing the same way. Although this probably sounds easy, try doing that while handling people coming in and out of the dressing room, making sure no one is stealing, counting the clothes to make sure none are lost, and you have one hectic hell hole of a dressing room. In short, the best way to describe my day is by telling this one story. I'm in the dressing room, completely stressed out, I have a mountain of clothes on the floor that is now stacked at least three feet about my head because all of the racks are full, and I'm trying to take care of the customers. So I pick up one piece of clothing off of the very top of my clothes pile and the entire thing falls over on top of me. I'm talking HUNDREDS of articles of clothing. Meanwhile, customers (particularly rude ones) are throwing their clothes onto the pile that is now on top of me. Then, I hear a little boy scream "MOMMY! That girl is dying under there!" At that point, I was on the verge of a break down. Luckily, my boss walked in, laughed at me for a good five minutes, helped me out of my pile and sent me to go get dinner. And guess what! I get to do it again tomorrow! Whoopie!

Okay, I lied. One last story. On my way back from dinner, I parked in the parking lot and sat in my car to finish eating. When I looked up, I saw this car coming down the parking lot aisle, pushing a buggy in front of the car. Alright people, come on. That is just pure laziness. Get out of the car and move the buggy if it's in your way, or just turn out of the way. It's not that hard. Anyways, my day at work was pretty awful. And that is why this blog is called "My Feet Hurt." I was on my feet from 3 to 10. Yay.

Now that I've told you about my day at work, here's what I was thinking about when I got home. Remember how I just told you that I don't mind being single? Well that's still the same, but I've found that I would be happier if I had about two more puppies and a guy best friend to rub my feet, give me fashion advice, and do my hair and makeup. Let's face it girls, deep down, we all want a gay guy as a best friend. Without those guys, there would be a lot of fabulous prom hairdo's that would have never happened. So does anyone know where I can buy one? (Just kidding, ya'll. Take a joke.)

Sorry this blog is so randomly thrown together. I'm tired and wanted to write something fast!

I have two checkmates.
1) Tomorrow is my last day at my first job! I got a much better job at downtown. It pays more, doesn't make me work weekends, or nights, and I get to sit at a desk. Checkmate, ya'll.
2)My mom sent me this text tonight. "What's that song that goes EVERYBODIES HANDS GO UP......AND THEY STAY THERE???" Checkmate,ya'll.

What National Uproar?

Let's talk about this national uproar that went on today. I love Chickfila as much as the next person, but today was a little ridiculous. Here's the facts. The owner was asked his opinion on gay marriage and he answered honestly, stating that he believed that marriage was created by God for a man and a women. Now, I completely agree with this. The owner did nothing wrong, he simply stated his beliefs. I believe that this whole Chickfila appreciation day got blown up to be something that it wasn't. A lot of customers of Chickfila went there today to support the owner in his statement, but a lot of them went because they are anti-gay. Well let me just say this, for those of you customers who went to Chickfila today to show how much you disagree with the gays, check yourself first. Sure, the Bible says that homosexuality is an abomination, but that was in the Old Testament. After the Old Testament, we are given grace for all of our sins. Just because you aren't a homosexual doesn't make you any better than those who are. We've all sinned. So if it isn't obvious, I didn't go to Chickfila today because I completely disagree with what went on today. I do NOT disagree with the companies beliefs, but what I do disagree with is the amount of people who went there today to show that they don't like gays and don't think they should be treated fairly. As Christians, we are called to love one another regardless of sin. Let's start doing that.

MAKE SURE TO READ THIS PART. I am absolutely not calling you a bad person if you went to Chickfila today. I completely respect Chickfila for their Christian beliefs and values. What I don't respect is the way some of the people handled today.
For those of you who claim to be a Christian, you will not get someone saved by pointing out their sins. You'll only end up making them angry and they won't listen to what you have to say. We should be sharing the message of grace, not condemning sinners to hell for what they've done.

Just to clarify one more time, if you went to Chickfila today with the right intentions, I'm totally with you.

And also, I will still be eating at Chickfila because that place is amazing. I can't live without their Chickfila sauce.

Today, my friend almost got me with a taser and made me cry. Checkmate, ya'll.
