So, as I mentioned in my last post, I have a job now!
I've delayed posting this because I'm not sure how much personal information I want to share in this space. (Especially the type of personal information that pertains to my physical location.) I know how easy it is to find these details out and I don't want to make it easier any creepers to do their creepin'. So for now we'll just say that I work in retail for a fresh, handmade cosmetics company and I am overjoyed to be employed there. Seriously, I've wanted to work for this particular company for so long that I was even following the twitter where they post job listings because I did not want to miss out on any openings. I tried not to get my hopes up too much throughout the interview process, and when they offered me the job I was ecstatic.
Every time I go in and put on my apron it feels like a dream. After 2.5 months of unemployment I was going crazy not having anything to do. It sounds like a short amount of time now but it was terrifying when there was no end in sight, especially for someone who's always planning for the next task on the horizon. It's been a particularly tough summer and this job has been a ray of sunshine lifting my spirits.
So yes. I have a job with a company I'm proud to work for and it's makes me happy every day.
How do you guys feel about the places you work?
