I didn’t feel like going to my first class today. It’s such a waste of time. I can’t understand the professor, she puts the slideshows online, and if she has a quiz, it’s extra credit. What is that. Plus I got not one, but two calls this morning, waking me up, and neither were of any use to me, so of course now I am freaking out that my stupid typo on my resume has royally screwed me forever.

Oh and I didn’t even want this tea. I thought the blueberry muffin flavor would have the blue wrapper. It’s purple. I guess that makes sense since we are talking about muffins. And of course I didn’t notice until it was already steeping.

I got the whole set of these white teas from someone in Finland in exchange for some bagged teas from a company in Atlanta that of course went under. This one is probably my least favorite, but that’s because to me, aloe is for when I have ended up with a sunburn. So I cannot help but feel like I am drinking something to soothe my sunburn.

But the flavors are spot on for a bagged tea. It’s one of the most grapefruit tasting teas I’ve had. I so prefer the blueberry muffin one though.

Also heads up to anyone who needs/wants tins, The Container Store sells 4 oz ones for $1.29 each, and if you sign up for their emails you get a 10% off coupon, dropping them to $1.16. I ordered 5 for all the matchas I have and I’ll definitely pick up more later! I don’t know why it took me so long to look and see if they had tins like that at a good price.

Don’t worry too much about your resume. I found a formatting error on the one I used for the job I just got hired for. If you’re awesome (and you are) one small mistake shouldn’t negate all your chances. Just fix it up for next time. :) I personally believe connections are more important than resumes. Sadly, that seems to be how the world works.

Thank you, a friend who hires for Starbucks said for a retail job she would overlook one typo so hopefully most other places are like that. Everyone just has to keep reassuring me. I hate that but I want to have a job badly! And I so know what you mean about that…my specific school has so many networking events compared to job fairs and the like.

Good luck. You will get there!
