So Far So Good...

Just a quick update to say that the job still seems to be working out.  It's actually been a really good experience for me in a number of ways...

  1. I've made a couple of new friends
  2. I'm learning to control my temper and keep a smile on my face when dealing with assholes. Although it's really, really, REALLY hard sometimes!
  3. I'm not just sitting around on my fat ass all day long anymore.
  4. I'm getting valuable experience in the industry I think I want to be in.
  5. I am contributing to the finances. Although, not very much!
Speaking of my job, it's time for me to get ready and head off to work...

Noodles & Co

Okay, so part of the reason I haven't blogged in a while is because I finally got a job!  Of course that's really no excuse since it's just a part time job. =)  Anyway, I started working at a restaurant called Noodles & Company about 5 weeks ago. 

I waited so long to say anything because I wanted to make sure that I liked the place and was actually going to keep the job before I told people.  Also, because it seems a little funny (at least to me) that I just got my degree in Hospitality Management and decided to take a part time hourly position instead of going into management.  Although I took the job with the understanding that if I choose to pursue management training that would be no problem.  I haven't worked in about 4 years though, so I really was in no hurry to jump in with both feet.  Right now I feel just peachy working 20 hours a week. 

The job at Noodles & Co. is really perfect for me right now because it is less than a mile away from where I live. Also, they do most of their business at lunch during the week, so they were happy to give me only daytime hours M-F. You see, that has been one of my biggest problems finding a job in the hospitality industry...I don't want to work weekends, nights, or holidays. I know, I know, what the hell was I thinking pursuing a career in this industry when I don't want to work the prime hours for restaurant business!  Anyway, for now I think I'll just float along and see where this job leads.

Oh My Gosh, Where Have I Been?

Well, I've been right here! Just too lazy, busy, preoccupied, whatever, to do any writing. As it happens, I'm actually too busy to post right now as well! So, I guess for now I'll just say "hi" and I'll be back later to update my happenings. =)
