stone cold seether

(Yes, I’ve been listening to Veruca Salt a lot recently. How could I have forgotten the fact that they were  made of awesome ?!)

Sarah. HelloooOOO! Whatever happened to drawing every day? Posting a few times a week? Girl, where you been?

Well… life kind of sucked there for a bit. I was going to class full time, and working 35 hours or more (so, almost full time) at quite possibly the most thankless job that I’ll ever have: cashier at Binny’s Beverage Depot. For non-Illinoisans, Binny’s Beverage Depot is a gigantic liquor store about the size of a WalMart. I have never worked so hard in my life. Standing for eight hours every day, lifting heavy boxes of bottles, interacting with hundreds of people a day–a large portion of them drunk, or alcoholics… from the physical stamina to the delicate dance of interacting with a misogynist hostile boss, it sucked all of the life out of me.(But my coworkers were awesome! Shout-out!)

But guess what?! I quit! I quit I quit I quit I quit! After giving that place a year of my life, I finally found a job where I will be making real money. A job in a female-friendly environment. A job where I don’t have to worry about the guy that I accidentally made eye-contact with following me home.

So, in honor of Binny’s Beverage Depot, here is a post of drawings that I did at my register, on company time:

    pretty sure you were my cashier many many times at Binny’s. Hoping it makes the memory less thankless by saying Thank You.
