You’re wearing the same jacket as me!

Back in May of 2013, I wore my black and white Nike jacket to work on a fairly chilly day.  (A picture of the jacket that I’m wearing will appear below this post.)  I wore it throughout my entire shift on that day.  As I was going to the break room to take my break, I noticed that a customer was wearing that exact same jacket as well.  I complimented the customer on his jacket … and the customer complimented me on my jacket as well … and then I also pointed out that we were wearing the exact same jackets at that time.  That moment made me smile.

 

This is the jacket that I'm talking about.  I wore this jacket to work back in May of 2013 ... and a customer wore that same jacket to my store back then also.

I’m not really stressed out anymore!

Back in the mid 2000s, whenever I was in school, my stress levels were fairly high, but now, in the mid 2010s, my stress levels are fairly low.  They have dropped considerably since I left high school for the last time seven years ago.  I am learning to manage my stress levels in a huge way here.  I still get stressed out from time to time, but at least I don’t get stressed out about things as often as I used to.  Whenever I was in high school, I would go to the bus stop at around 6:30 in the morning, but nowadays, I don’t have to leave my house at that time in the morning, unless something important comes up.  I go to work once or twice a week … and now I leave my house at approximately 9:20 a.m. on the days that I have to go to work.  I now have more time to relax before I go to work on certain mornings.  It makes me feel good.

I will post another blog later this afternoon.

Joseph Pratt's interests

Why did I decide to start blogging?

You’re probably asking yourselves, “Why did Joseph Pratt decide to start blogging regularly?”  Well, that’s a very good question.  I decided to start blogging regularly because I wanted to talk about things that interest me … and I also wanted to talk about things that I like to talk about on a regular basis.  Several years ago, when I was in high school, I kept a journal for myself.  I actually have several journals at home … and I have them hidden away in a shoe box in my home.  Well, it was actually an assignment for one of my classes at school, but I almost always liked to write in there a lot.  I would write about things that I was interested in … and I would also write about things that bothered me as well.  I might also blog about things that bother me a lot, but I probably won’t be doing that too much.  I don’t think I’ll be blogging on a daily basis, though, but I will be blogging at least a couple of times a week, mostly on weekends.  That’s all I have to say for today.

On August 23, 2014, I went to South Park with many of my relatives. While I was there, I helped two people celebrate some major birthdays. Nicky Papakie is turning 50 this year … and Patricia Collavo is turning 80 this year. I had fun at this party … and I also got to see many of my relatives here … and I also got to meet some new people here as well.
