What's it like working in a bookstore? How does it compare to other jobs you've had?
It’s by far the mellowest job I’ve ever had. I get to put on pretty much whatever music I want, decide which tasks I feel like taking on each day (pricing books, shelving them, data entry, etc.) and go about it at my own pace. My co-workers are cool, smart people and fun to talk to. And it’s a small bookstore so I only answer like 5 questions a day, usually just where a certain section is. Oh and it’s dog friendly so lots of customers bring in their pups and I get to pet them and give them treats! :3 The only thing I don’t like is how dusty it is, makes me sneeze haha.
Feeling very depressed/triggered because of that shooting. Working alone at the bookstore today, and there are like no customers. Someone talk to me about something else to distract me? I feel like I’m starting to dissociate because of being triggered and it would help ground me to just talk about whatever.
