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!)

"Keep Moving Forward"


  1. LOL too funny. They sure are falling apart.

    1. It made very happy when I threw them out!

  2. Hooray for less stress! And hooray for no more hole-y shoes! :)
