Adventures at Jimmy John's

My favorite thing to do at my job is drive-thru! I get to talk over the speaker and take orders and take money. It's exciting and not too over-whelming (and when it is, I can get someone to come over and help me, or say, "Hi, welcome to Jimmy John's! We'll be right with you.")

Here is my favorite drive-thru moment:

I took orders one day, as a boy named Tim took money. Tim took a man's credit card and was typing the credit card number into the computer. The computer switched from the slot where the numbers go, to the slot where the AMOUNT goes.

Tim charged him over 46 billion dollars for a sandwich. Haha, it was amazing! XD
(The manager came and voided the order, no worries.)

Side story:
A few weeks ago, I was making a delivery for my job, and I locked my keys, wallet, and phone in my car. I had to walk 2 miles to my mom's house to use her phone (I have no numbers memorized except my boyfriend's and he did not answer).

It was very, very embarrassing. I thought I'd be fired for sure, so I resigned. The manager said I wasn't fired, and that he'd give me 2 weeks to decide if I wanted to really leave. It was embarrassing to return to him and say, "I can stay" without eye contact...

But! He high-fived me and told me he was happy about my decision. He says I have good work ethic and on two occasions during those 2 weeks he said, "I would like to keep you." :)

I like my job a lot, especially when I can work drive-thru. I love customer service!

The biggest downfall is the gossip. It's so hard to sit around pretending like I don't hear everyone talking about who they'd love to see fired-- or even DEAD! The managers do this as well.

In addition, everyone apparently thinks it's appropriate to talk about their sex lives. They shouldn't be talking about this in a professional setting, especially around food. >_> Yuck.

Nonetheless, I like everyone there just fine, when they aren't discussing how often they 'do it.'

And everyone seems to like me. :)

I wonder what the future will hold for me in this job.~

I have a little secret.
I've been dreaming of opening a cafe'. I hope to make that a reality (despite my young age) in the next 2 years. <3

I just got a job at Jimmy John's. :D
Well, a few weeks ago.
It's fun. I especially like working on the register. :)

I wanna say something, though. :\
Jimmy John's only has provolone cheese.

It's not a Subway.

Does McDonald's have Swiss, pepper jack, etc? No. They have one kind.

When we ask, "We only have provolone. Is provolone okay?", please stop replying, "If it was ok, I would have asked for it." :(



My car broke down toniiiight! D:

First time that's ever happened to me.

Poor Carlito.

Drove it to a repair shop; gonna call in the morning.

It was an adventure. :)
Some nice strangers helped roll it out of the street!  :DDD

Time for sleep!

Congrats to Yvonne Kettner!

Kettner's piece revealing her next creative
project: 365 more zentangles-
 this time, with color!
I was assigned to write a piece about a current event in the world of visual art. :)

This is for my Art Appreciation class.

I decided to write about my friend Yvonne Kettner, who recently finished her 365 project! Such huge congratulations, Ms. Yvonne!! :)

Here is what I wrote:

I found this article on the blog 365 Freestyle Zentangles. This is a blog hosted by the website The article URL is as follows:


My friend Yvonne Kettner embarked upon a journey to create a zentangle every day for one year. A zentangle is a free-hand drawing, usually containing unpremeditated patterns. Kettner was inspired to attempt such a project by Noah Scalin, and artists who tackled his own year-long creative process to make one skull every day. Kettner finished her venture on  August 30th, 2012. On that day, she revealed her decision to tackle yet another 365-day-long project, continuing to draw zentangles, but this time adding colors to her beautiful designs.

    This statement of relevance should also be a minimum of one paragraph in length and discuss HOW you see this news item as relating to the study of “ART APPRECIATION.”

            In a world constantly creating new types of art, Yvonne Kettner embraced a style not commonly known. Because of her fervor for zentangles, Kettner was able to create a unique piece of art every day for one year. Her appreciation for this distinctive art style shows her most beloved qualities to all those who are graced with seeing her collection. Truly challenging herself and letting her creativity flow every day, this artist from the Netherlands captured the meaning of art: having perseverance and taking joy and pride in her work.
