    I’ve actually been becoming more involved in wanting to become more fashionable, and looking nicer so right now I do not express myself through fashion, comfort over classy was always basically my mantra. I felt that I didn’t have to try as hard as other people for attention but I think it’s nice to be young and dress nice. It does garner more attention.

    But I did experience harassment at my former workplace, I think there was minor sexual harassment and comments made by male customers (as there is in many jobs) but I mostly faced harassment on a more hurtful, insulting level by my coworkers. I was very young (I still am) practically a baby compared to these people who were far older than I was, many mothers and fathers. I worked at a new restaurant and it wasn’t very popular and people just didn’t like me. I tried my best to help them whenever I could but they were just awful, bitchy and very misunderstanding. It did definitely teach me a hard lesson that many people just don’t grow up and get out of a high school mentality.
