Here are my thoughts on Starbucks.  I will never muster up the courage to actually reply to the assholes who leave their opinions on so I will express my feelings here, in the safe womby environment of my blog. 

1.  If you don’t like starbucks then WHY DO YOU WORK THERE?!

2.  You are just mad because you were allowed to do as you pleased for too long and now have to actually make business based decisions.

3.  If you haven’t noticed, the entire economy is in a recession so you shouldn’t complain about starbucks making tough decisions, unfortunate as they may be.

4.  Your negative attitude isn’t helping matters.

Well, I guess those were more my thoughts towards the “bitter beans” rather than general starbucks thoughts, but there they are none the less.

It is true that you learn something new everyday and lately I feel like it is all depressing.  More specifically, I’ve been learning something new about MYSELF everyday.  Here’s the big one.  I want to be better than I am (at everything) but I am too scared to try new things so I will keep knitting scarves.  That’s a pretty good metaphor, but also true.  Not only will I keep knitting scarves, but I will keep knitting them in garter, seed, and stockinette stitches.  I’m not even knitting new patterns.  There is probably a lot you can do with those three stitches, like lace or cables but I will never know.
