Why Do We Spend So Much Time With Our Blogs?
I went for a refreshing walk the other day during lunch and thought back to what made me work. It was all about Levi’s. I wanted a pair of Levi’s jeans and my parents would not spend more than $10 for a pair of jeans for me.
The tag had to be Levi’s.
It was a tradition on Friday nights that we would go shopping at Ann & Hope. Sam Walton visited Ann & Hope in Rhode Island prior to founding Walmart. It was all about prices. Back then they weren’t many stores or malls so it was a great place to shop. I looked forward to those trips weekly and was always thinking what article of clothing I could buy for the next week. We even shopped there during my father’s strike at his company. I would not win any battles of buying things during that time period.
I’m not sure that Ann & Hope even had the Levi’s. They had a no name brand jean line and maybe the Lee’s brand. I believe I had to go to the only Mall in RI back then. And they cost over $20 each. Then Levi’s came out with the corduroy jeans in many colors. I just had to have every color! (Funny how today I look for sale prices and would not spend much more for jeans myself than I did back then.)
I had a babysitting job and delivered a local weekly newspaper for $6/week. I carried a large bag and walked miles to deliver those papers. I did 2 routes for the $6 as it was $3 per route. Rain or snow I delivered them. Then I took a typing class in the 7th grade and decided to ask if the newspaper needed a typist. Timing was perfect. Someone just retired and I got the job at the age of 14. I worked after school and on Saturdays. Monday night was deadline day for the weekly paper and sometimes during busy seasons I’d be there until midnight.
So that’s what inspired me to work so hard in the beginning. Wanting something more. And I am still grateful I took that typing class. I can’t imagine doing everything I have done to this day without that typing class.
Today I am more inspired by helping others and making connections with wonderful people through blogging. I also want to be okay in 2033 if and when Social Security runs out. I’ve found blogging to be therapeutic, refreshing and I’m always learning something new.
