China's Day At Work (Photostory)
So I finished painting the Gloria office set. I love how the copier and the computer turned out. The desk didn't come out as planned. I like the grey bottom, but I may change the color of the top. The desk made me think of those desks at police stations. I thought I would use it before I change it. I did add small blocks to lift it a little.
Remember Chyna? She's Darren's wife and Antoinette's sister-in-law. She tried her hand at running her own business, but decided to get a regular job. Running her own business was more stressful than she thought it would be. She works at the school. She wears many hats. One of those hats is guidance counselor. She's also in charge of enrolling new students.
Chyna returns from the break room with a fresh cup of coffee.
She has so much to do today.
She decides to get started on the monthly report first.
"Hello Mrs. Trott. You wanted to see me?" (Christina)
"Christina, yes. Come on in. Have a seat." (Chyna)
"How are you today?" (Chyna)
"I'm fine." (Christina)
"I wanted to meet with you to start discussing college. Sophomore year is the best time to start preparing for college. There are S.A.T.s to take, scholarships to research, and college tours to plan." (Chyna)
"Wow. Sounds like a lot." (Christina)
"It is and that's why we start the process so early." (Chyna)
Chyna and Christina continuing their conversation. They put together a plan that will be best for Christina.
"Thank you Mrs. Trott." (Christina)
"I will schedule another meeting next month to see how you are coming with your list. You may want to see if your mother is available. I would like to get her involved, too. " (Chyna)
After Christina leaves, Chyna gets back to work. Thirty minutes later she gets more visitors.
"Hello Gabriella and Taylor. What brings you guys by?" (Chyna)
"I need to get another copy of the letter you gave us yesterday. I lost mine." (Gabriella)
"How did you lose it that quickly? No worries. I have it right here. I just need to make another copy." (Chyna)
Gabriella and Taylor discuss their lunch plans while waiting.
"Here you go. Now make sure this one makes it to your parents." (Chyna)
"I will, Mrs. Trott. I promise." (Gabriella)
Chyna gets back to work and finishes up the monthly report. It's now time to call it a day.
She tidies up her desk, then retrieves her purse from her desk.
Teacher Adele pops in.
"You still here?" (Adele)
"I'm just leaving. Wait, I'll walk out with you." (Chyna)
Special thanks to my guidance counselor, Mrs. Barnwell. She was phenomenal is making sure I knew what to do when it came to prepping for college.
NOTE ABOUT PAINT: I've been touting the 2X Painter's Touch paint. They now have the one with the Paint + Primer. It wasn't as good as the paint without the primer. So I recommend you buy the one without the primer.
