Anonymous: ovo havent heard from you on this blog for quite a bit! hope you're alright!
I’m submitting grad school/working on postbac classes (ugh don’t know what I was thinking when I signed up for 3 this semester)/it’s graduation for my students and there’s a lot of prep work for it/it was my birthday/and the snow’s been really bad in my area so I haven’t been able to go out much because trains/buses/roads still are on a delay in my area, or aren’t cleared yet.
But, thank you, Anon! I’m sorry I’ve sort of disappeared over the past two weeks and I probably worried people who check my blog frequently.
If it hadn’t been for the two big snow storms that hit over two weeks, I wouldn’t be playing catchup with my applications/postbac and I’d be posting more often :/
If anyone wants to read about it, CNN reported on it.There were some casualties, but mostly in the areas that don’t experience snow as severely as we do in the north. In my area, we got over two feet within 24hrs - some of the roofs in the area collapsed because the snow was that heavy. My neighbor across the street had his car crushed from its covered structure collapsing on it. I’m dreading March, because that’s when we usually get the worst snowfall, not February.
TLDR - I’m hoping to be back to more frequently posting soonish.
Here: have a picture of my friendly (/crazy) neighborhood cat. So, the post office near me is a ten minute walk, approx. Because of the ice and how the road I take doesn’t have sidewalks anymore and the lanes have been cut down to 1 because of the snowfall, I’ve only been able to take a couple packages down at a time (think 1-3, rather than the usual 15-20), so to make up for it, I’ve been trying to go daily when I can. I always look forward to seeing this cat, which is always sitting in the window on the corner building before the post office steps.
The sad thing is, I took that picture this past Monday? Almost a week after the second snowfall. The snow just isn’t melting D: At least it doesn’t look dirty yet.
*also no idea why my phone fails and can’t rotate the photo.
Anonymous: have you shipped the lucky bags yet?//any updates on the lucky bags?
I sent the second wave of them out tonight, and the last round will be Sunday/Monday for the remainder =3 If you haven’t gotten a ship notice by next Tuesday, please let me know!
On a somewhat related note - I did a stock count of how many bags were ordered and how many bags were in orders containing bags, and I am 7 (SEVEN) bags off with my counting and I worry I may be missing orders/orders aren’t showing up.
I contacted storenvy and am waiting to hear back - this might be an issue with the buttercup code, where people ordered 3 bags, put the buttercup code in, and 4 bags were recorded as sold from that order. But, it’s confusing because some people put 4 bags in their order, and I don’t know if 4 were taken from the stock total or 5 were (because one is technically free). So, I’m waiting for storenvy to clarify D:
TLDR - if you ordered a lucky bag and it isn’t showing up as shipped by Tuesday, please contact me with your order number and if you have the paypal transaction number, that too please.
