A Year in My Shoes

Last year, in late August, I was hired at a frozen yogurt shop.  I gained a lot of great customer service skills.  A week and a half ago, I gave my two weeks notice.  I was exhausted and stressed out working two jobs.  I needed to make a healthy decision for myself and just have one full time job.  I already feel less stressed.

As part of the uniform, I bought white sneakers after I was hired.  I bought them from Payless for about $25. 

These are what my sneakers looked like when I bought them.

After one year of working...this is what they look like.


Yes that's a hole I sewed together.  Then it came apart.


I'm so happy that I get to throw these in the trash!  I know that anyone reading this will ask why I didn't just buy new shoes.  I couldn't afford new ones for a while and sewing them worked.  Then when I was able to buy new ones, I was contemplating quitting.  So there was ultimately no point.
So this is what a year in my shoes look like!  (P.S. none of my other shoes have holes!)
