When the work day ended, it was a sign for celebration. Having toiled endlessly on at least a dozen computers day, due to all of the new employees who wished for a seat among those who knew computers inside and out, Alex was having a hard time even concentration on her coffee, which steamed warmly and gave her a sense of security in an uncertain world. Of course, her rent payments were behind by two months due to an incident she was not even responsible for, which involved some drunk teenagers torching her living room within her apartment. Work wasn't able to raise her pay, and thus, she was stuck in a loop of almost always being in debt to her landlord. How she hated that man with a seething passion. Now, with her attention set on the coffee, she began to drink it at her own leisurely pace. There was at least one thing Alex looked forward to while sitting here at the coffee shop. She hoped for one of her colleagues to arrive, though it was understandable that they'd not arrive so early, especially if work was ever so demanding. Alex's mind wandered, to a time which was long past, before snapping back into reality. This was one of the times per day she could actually have a normal conversation with another decent human being, which was always a treat.
