Working for a high-maintenance wealthy woman can be quite stress-inducing, and I am constantly reminded of our income and cultural differences. Today, we spent a good hour at Pottery Barn because she was impatiently trying to explain that she wanted a duvet cover in Manderin. Okay, first of all, I speak Canto not Mando. And second, I only have a few things on my bed: a bedsheet, and some blankets. Now I know the difference between a flat sheet vs fitted sheet, duvet cover vs comforter, and a sham vs pillowcase.

I’m trying to be more open-minded, and I guess it helps to remind myself that this job pays for my Japan study abroad program (I leave in 14 days!!!) . I could have it a lot worst.
