Hello,

My name is Attemptingthepath. I work at an inspirational bookstore. It's currently 12:21 AM, and I just got home. I get to be back there in 6.5 hours. It's a GREAT thing that I love to sell books to middle aged women.

So I'm in charge of all the framed art in my store, I love doing that, because I have most of the wall space in my store to make it look amazing, or really crappy, depending on how busy we are and how motivated I am. Anywho, so the pictures have been attacked and I had a ton of crap I needed to do...oh, and then I need to put together a tutorial for the new store managers on framed art--I'm sensing a few more late nights at the good ol' inspirational bookstore.

Also at the bookstore where I work is a straight guy...a Stupid Straight Guy.

Tonight I was stuck with him for 4 hours--just us two. Thank you Jesus for letting me be gay, otherwise I might be as annoying as he is, I also might drench myself in Axe body spray, have really bad hair.


I also get to prepare my LAST EQ lesson, well...in this ward. My solution for a calling next semester is shock my new bishop during the getting to know you interview. I'm determined to make it work, I just hope that it doesn't work too well and I loose my ecclesiastical recommendation

I didn't know the art section was yours! I dig it! I've been in there more than a few times.

At my Mormony store job, we sell things to middle-aged, righteous women all day, too. Sometimes, they're the sweetest things ever. The rest, though, seem to have arrived in their minivans from hell.

I'm going to need your help picking out some artwork now ...

I was just reading through the EQ lesson- the one on unity, right? Made me realize how grateful I am to have friends. It's so good to be able to share with others and to feel unified. Lately I've seen how this really makes it easier to deal with life. Somehow it's easier being out there trying to do good when there's people in your life who will love you no matter what. So I'm grateful for people who make me feel 'one' with them.

Anyway, good luck facing the upcoming changes.

I definitely think that wearing too much Axe (however that straight-guy stuff is spelled!) is an indicator of straightness. In the locker room, guys spray the cheapest-smelling Axe EVERYWHERE. It makes me grateful to be gay. :)
I always want to tell them, "Listen up, boys. No one likes that smell. Buy yourself some real cologne."

Everyone needs a gay guy in their life. :)
