Geeky Job, Lady Gaga & Remembering my Kitty – Life Update

It’s nice to sit in my newly unpacked apartment with high-speed internet to blog with. Not having WiFi for a couple days felt odd, but it’s all a part of the moving process. There’s been a lot going on lately, so I figured I’d write one post summarizing it all.

Geeky Barista Job

I wanted a part-time job that was more laid back than my full-time job. I applied to be a barista at a coffee shop attached to a board game store. I get 30% off of board games, Magic the Gathering sets, and D&D guidebooks. Plus I get to be around coffee a couple days a week with cash tips. I am finishing training this week, but I’m looking forward to working while socializing with the regulars.

Lady Gaga Concert

On Monday the 21st, I carpooled with a coworker to the Lady Gaga concert in St. Paul, MN. Lady Gaga is the queen of pop who puts on an energetic show. She performed songs off her new album, Joanne while also combining older songs including Poker Face, Love Game, and Born This Way. I won these tickets from my job which included being in a suite with my coworkers. We were above the stage where I took numerous videos of Gaga performing. It was certainly a night to remember.

R. I. P to Ellie.

Unfortunately, I’m ending my life update with a sad announcement of the death of my last cat, Ellie. She had lost a lot of weight in the last couple of weeks, but she was eating and drinking water. However, on the 21st, my mom texted me saying she thought something was wrong with her. When I called back a couple hours later, my brother informed me she died. I’m a little distraught about it because, within a year, I lost both of my childhood cats. Animals become a big part of your family, so there’s a big sense of loss when they finally pass. I’m glad she doesn’t have to suffer anymore.

Once I get my routine down with my new job, my goal is to write posts every other day. This may not happen all the time, but I do like writing on this blog and I don’t want it to be forgotten.

  1. Glad to read you had such a great time at the Lady Gaga concert. Looking at the pictures it certainly seems like it was a night to remember indeed 😊 Really sorry to hear about your cat though 😥


  2. I’m so sorry to hear about your cat! We lost our childhood cat a few years ago, and it was so rough. Sending you positive fluffy vibes and support!!

    Your job sounds lovely though, and congrats on the Lady Gaga concert. Joanne might be my favorite album of hers, and we saw her in concert a few years ago – she was great!


    • It’s sad because I lost my 2 childhood cats in a year… I cannot wait till I can have my own kitty. I need some pet love in my life. The job itself is fun, kinda overwhelming since I’m still learning.


  3. I am so sorry about your kitty. 😔😔😔 I’ve never had a fur baby but I’m close to my sister’s dogs. I couldn’t imagine. But congrats on your job! It sounds fun! I would like to work in a place like that!
