Just In Time!

Today officially rounds up the BEST month ever! You know that thing that I've been hinting at for a while--that super secretive information that I wasn't able to disclose before?? Well, good news came just in time for the end of August... This morning I got a FULL-TIME JOB OFFER!!! No longer will I have to work 2 jobs (but let's be real here, I'm still going to work a shift here and there at Loft), and I will actually get to enjoy my weekends! And I got the news right before the restaurant opened too, so (un)fortunately I let them know that I will no longer be a part of their opening team. It's definitely unfortunate that I just stepped into the sales lead position at Loft, and it was an emotional conversation with my manager(s) today, but they understand.

I really lucked out with this one--I wasn't even planning on looking for full-time jobs for several months since I knew that I had the sales lead job at Loft and I would be making good money downtown. I had actually applied for a part-time clerical position at this company a few months ago. Then during my restaurant training week, I received an email asking if I was interested in this full-time position and urging me to apply. 2 interviews and a sample assignment later, not only was I hooked, but apparently they were as well.

I am honestly just so ecstatic right now! I was a ball of nerves and kind of stressed out the past few days, what with the restaurant opening looming in the near future and a crazy busy week at Loft coming up next week too. Oh, silly me, I forgot to tell you what I'll be doing! I will officially be an environmental consultant when I sign the papers. I already verbally accepted the position this morning. And did I mention I get to travel too?? I'm seriously shaking right now! I've already contacted pretty much all my fam, and my brother wants to do a celebratory dinner now! Yay family time!

Alrighty, in the midst of all this excitement, I realized I am past due for a meal, yikes! But I just had to let you all in on my good news, and thanks for bearing with me while I kept it super hush-hush!
