on monday i felt very under-appreciated and self-conscious (which has been a background feeling for a little while)

but when i came into work one of the pastry chefs said my haircut looked good and that it looked ‘sharp’ (hell yeah hell yeah)

and then during the day she asked me a couple of times if i was okay (i must have looked really tired or not as okay as i usually look idk)

and then when i had to stay back for over an hour (which i didn’t mind) she told me a few times that she really appreciated me staying back and that i was doing a good job and she was really grateful

it made me feel very cared about and appreciated and it made me feel better about myself and it made me feel a little better in general

it was very nice
