Milestones

My road in life took a while to figure out.
I started high school and got normal grades. However, I had a really hard time making friends and decided to move schools after my first year.
I went to a specialty high school, which allowed me to take college classes in addition to my normal ones. At this school, I ended up making a few close friends but the curriculum was too hard for me.
I went back to my old high school and stayed there until the beginning of my senior year, where I was forced to live in Washington with my other parent.
While there, I decided I really wanted to be a nurse or at least work some kind of a job in the medical field, so I started to take some extra medical-based classes at my school.
I got a part-time job, which I kept for almost six months, and realized that I really do not like working a minimum-wage job. This is when I started looking into clothing resale.
I applied to three universities and only got accepted into one, so I began preparing to move back to California to attend my new school after graduating high school in June of 2020.
I am currently attending college and have slowly worked my way up the status pole with my Depop shop. I pick up part-time jobs when I feel like I could use a little extra money to help with fees.

Day to Day

Some days I will go out to multiple thrift stores to try and find new pieces to upload on my shop. Then whether the piece is something I just bought or it is from my own closet, I will inspect it thoroughly to make sure it does not have any flaws. After that, I take photos for the listings, and I answer questions I receive on them. Then, when I sell something, I pack it up and ship it out as soon as I can.

From Parents:

"You keep buying all of these clothes, and I don't think you'll be able to sell all of them. You're going to be broke."
