a fun night at work.

Tonight was fun. I was a little apprehensive about it -- I haven't quite gotten the hang of closing up the store properly yet. Maybe just because I feel like I'm doing everything inadequately!

Anyway, though... tonight it was Josh, Chris, and I, and we had a pretty good time. We had some great customers, and everyone seemed to be in a good mood. Josh and I worked up a welcoming routine for the drive-thru that we eventually tried out on one family near the end of the night:

"Good evening!"
"Welcome to Starbucks!"
"I'm Josh..."
"And I'm Bekah..."
"What can we get started for you tonight?"

We would flip back and forth during the whole ordering process-- I think we ended up making the family feel as silly as we were feeling. :) That was good.

Let's see... Oh! And something weird happened. I am pretty sure I was flirted with by one of the lobby customers. He and two women came in -- he seemed to be in his late 20s, I think. I was working bar, and while Chris took his order, I stood behind the counter and was getting the specifics so I could start on his drink. I think it was... a skinny cinnamon dolce latte? Yeah.

Anyway, he was kind of looking at me strangely. As if he knew me or something. And when I went up to the bar, he started talking to me, lightly teasing as if I were a friend. Asked if I had weekend plans (fishing, perhaps?). I told him I would be working all weekend. Then he proceeded to tell me about his moving plans-- moving to California rather soon for a job. We chatted a while. He was pretty nice, but it was just so strange! I wanted to know his deal, lol. Ha! If I didn't have a boyfriend that I love and adore, I'm sure I would be eaten up with curiosity. As it is now, however, I am happy enough to pass on the humorous event to my blog and a couple of friends, and there it shall rest. :)

Josh and I kind of bonded tonight, too, which was nice. I'm glad I like my coworkers... I really consider them all friends, even this soon into the job!

Summer lovin', happened so fast...

The summer is really panning out to be a great one already.  It's different, but a good different.  Kind of a grown-up good different.

Work has been awesome.  Seriously.  I love my job... I loved coffee before, but I have such a huge appreciation for it now!  Even more than before.  My coworkers are incredibly great.  I really couldn't imagine working anywhere else right now.  It's a good fit for me at this time in my life.

I don't get to see Ben as often as I would like.  We average about twice a week... it seems like we're seeing each other less now than we did when I was in school.  Odd, but then again, I was about 20 minutes closer.  Ben was planning on moving to Conway... I guess I was hoping he was really going to try to do so, but you know, things come up.  He's got more important things to do right now.

Tomorrow morning, I am getting up, and I am going running.  I officially start whatever regimen it is I'm going to put myself through tomorrow.  I would like to lose say... 15 pounds before Hungary.  It'll probably end up being maybe 10, but I'll take what I can get!  I haven't really... gained that much weight since last summer... maybe about 10 pounds, but I -feel- like I have.  My clothes aren't fitting like they were.  So time to crack down!

I miss my friends a lot.  I might have to watch some Doctor Who tomorrow to get over school-sickness.

love love love.
because I have nothing better to say.
