Sellout

Did I ever mention how much I LOVE my dogs?

This little guy is Titan. He is FULL cockapoo, yes he is always mistaken for a chihuahua but he came from two cockapoos.
 He's 6 lbs and he's the smartest dog I know.
 We didn't get a long when we first met but later we couldn't be apart.

This big one is Maximus. He's half cockapoo (same moms) but I dont know what the dad is. Everyone just thinks he's a miniature golden retriever.
 He's 26 lbs and he isn't the brightest crayon but he is the most loving dog in the world. I even considered making him a therapy dog because he would run to everyone at the park and just say hi.
My dogs are the sweetest dogs I know and I know they wouldn't hurt a fly. I genuinely love them and it's a big part of the reason why I want to be vegetarian soon.

Also, they made me realize all the dreams and hopes I had in high school. I've never really known what I wanted to do in life but I know I've always wanted to help people. But, for some reason I've started going the other way and even at some point I wanted to be those corporate jerks and be an investment banker.

I've been working at Bloomingdale's for about a year and a half and everytime I help out a customer I would feel really good about myself. For example, I've been helping out this Korean customer who never received reward certificates and after many visits and phonecalls during the span of 2 months, I've resolved it for her. Not only was she grateful and even gave me a $25 gift card to Starbucks (my weakspot) I've realized something.

Not only did she purchase $50,000 in Chanel bags that year but every time she's visited she's worn a mink coat, Burberry toggle cashmere coat and carried Chanel AND Hermes bags. WTF?! Why am I using all my energy to help out someone so privileged? Then I realized I'm a huge sellout. I kept wondering what kind of person I've become. I've always wanted to help the orphans in North Korea and be a veterinarian and made sure I've recycled and now I've become the person I've never wanted to be.

A corporate sellout.

At least this kick-start my quest to doing something meaningful in my life.

  1. Wow you must see some serious purchases at Bloomies!! Of course the woman searching for her reward certificates doesnt even need them. I hope you figure out what you want to do, but until then I'd still have fun working there :)

    Your dogs are adorable!! I'm so thrilled we got our pooch, he just adds so much happiness to our lives!
