Daily Posting, It Begins!

I've decided to challenge myself.  I'm going to post a journal entry every weekday.  What are they going to be about?  I have no idea.  It'll depend on the day I suppose.  Sometimes real life, sometimes internet, sometimes fiction.

Today I think I'll start with the basics.  I worked for the Borders bookstore for about a year and a half.  But in case you weren't aware, the company has closed.  It happened so fast that I wasn't getting enough hours at my main store so I transferred to another one in my area.

What I was so pleased about though is that the people I worked with at the second store created the exact same atmosphere that I left behind.  Why is that?  Is it that we were all book lovers?  We came from different backgrounds; some still in college, others had graduated with varying degrees.  Some had worked at the store for over a decade and others just a few months.  And yet we clicked.  Oh good lord did we ever click.

Without a moments hesitation I found myself in just as welcoming and engaging an atmosphere as the one I left behind and I cannot be more pleased about that.  At this point both bookstores in my area have shut down but I'm still socializing with all the people I had worked with (thank you facebook) and even dating one of them!

That's all I've really got on this topic, though I have plenty of insane retail stories, but I'll leave off for now.

P.S. Does anyone know where I can find icons for livejournal?  I really don't have any.

What kind of icons are you looking for?

Oh goodness anything really. I see people with ones from shows, with captions, without captions...Yours is apparently the Fire Nation/White Lotus.

I've got some on my site, and you can also use the icons that go with these sets as well as these 9 non-A:TLA icons right here. Here is a directory of more A:TLA icons for you to browse through.

Dietotaku has A:TLA and other icons on her community LJ. You may also be able to find icons over at Fandom Icons or avatar_icons.

I also have some abstract ones I made from pictures taken from Hubble, some District 9 ones, Star Trek XI, Tenchi, Katamari, some random ones I jacked from other people, Legend of the Guardians.. I could probably zip all the icons I have up and send them to you. Then you can sort through them. They're already neatly organized into folders on my hard drive.

Sorry if this doesn't help. I only linger in the A:TLA fandom. Usually, if I want an icon from another show or movie, I make it myself.
