Black Friday 2013

This is what happens when you have a supportive older brother who likes to take pictures during the nation’s biggest shopping day. These photos give every indication on how crazy Black Friday at Forever 21 was. It was my first time working retail on this post-Thanksgiving day and my first Friday as the Accessory Manager!!!

While running on three hours of sleep and a stomach full of turkey and pumpkin pie…

The first 30 minutes you’re pumped and ready to take on every pleading customer wanting their shoe size as you dance-work with your co-workers. Six hours later your once perfectly curled hair is up in a ponytail and you’ve recovered an area for more than an hour. Towards the end of your shift your ponytail is now a messy bun, your legs tremble with every step you take, and the idea of going shopping afterwards becomes a joke and a loss memory. Finally, after a grueling 12 hours, you come home and sleep for 10 hours straight. Then blog about it the next morning before heading back to the store to recover everything.

Lesson of the day: America is crazy after a thankful day.

So, with that said, what did you get from Black Friday?! Score any awesome deals? Who’s shopping Cyber Monday?

“Now there is great gain in godliness with contentment, for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world…” (1 Timothy 6:6-10)
