I watched the sun rise this morning in my side mirror on the way to Panera to get work done/see Ali.
Thanks to air quality here in Dallas it was a very large glowing orb at first and then shrunk to normal size as I crested a hill and the angle changed.
Mornings like this make me miss working at Starbucks.
Maybe not Starbucks in general, but Starbucks at Turkey Creek, and specifically the opening shift.
I guess I didn’t realize how great I had it working there until I started working at Starbucks here in Texas.
What a nightmare.
I think I will always look back on my time there in Knoxville, living at home at finishing college while working at Starbucks with fond memories.
It was a pretty significant turning point in my life at least and I enjoyed the ride while it lasted.
All of this is not to say I don’t thoroughly enjoy where I am now, but I do miss those days.
And of course when I drive by North Park mall’s empty parking lot, I want to suddenly do a green sweep.
But I imagine that would not be quite the same.
And it would take forever.
I should probably get to studying…
