a Pile of Shoes

it's currently 0400hrs, AKDT, I tossed and turned for a while in fitful sleep, then sat up, scooted over on my bed to within reach of my pianoKeyboard, turned it on and attached my Headphones (so I won't disturb any of my roomies in theOther AP rooms) and did some basic scales, now I feel much better that I've done that.

It was my first winter with my churchFoster family, those mormons that took me in for one school year to help me transition into a life full of better education & better Life opportunities as well, my homesickness was past yet most nights I fell asleep in tears missing Mama and lil' Sister Jess & lil' brother Allen (Charles, now deceased of Cancer)

I was born Lakota, had been infused?! (for lack of a better word right now at 4a.m.) had been given theDNA of my ancestors, passed down to me from my mother, those precious markers and traits that only theWomen can carry and pass down to their offspring,

I was taught Lakota, had been given the basic…

Kiosk Notes

Carrs Safeway, Anchorage, Alaska

Carrs Safeway Starbucks Barista

Starbucks Barista

Barista!!

----
hello everyone!!
theSam!! is happy that it's snowing once again here in theCity!!,
theBarista work is slowing down a bit, at least for me,

it seems now, after almost 2 months of Barista work, that when I get comfortable with my schedule moving up from 20-something hours a week, to almost 40hrs a week,

that something negative happens and I find myself being moved back to a part time schedule. And it all has to do with some problems that I seem to be having with Customer Service, as it all relates to representing Starbucks and theCarrs Safeway stores.

When I had someone call me on the phone in Sep, and sent me to an Group interview for Carrs Safeway, I had no idea that later on in this new line of work, Barista!!, that problems would pop up, I was only glad to be back to working and still staying within theFood & Beverage Industry that I have come to love.

when my "class" started at…

Gosh!!pull Hims with AcousticSam!! *hiccup!!*

who’s so literal sometimes,

when looking at his cellPhone day date display saw that it was “12-11”
and thought he had missed his mothers birthday,

so he called and left a message Wishing her a HappyBirthday,
then,
Upon sobering up theNext day,

saw that his cellPhone day date display read “13-11-2008”

oh well.
At least Son E. Boy!! remembered his Mothers B-Day THIS year.
