On Thursday, I received a call from the Bakery whom I had had an interview with previously and I got the job! Now I was thrilled, and so looking forward to it. I even went and met the head baker and began the process of accepting the job when.... Urban Trade called me! So now I had two job offers on the table, one of them the cutest job in the world, and the other something I had desired to be doing and the potential to really grow within the company. At first, I had accepted both jobs, thinking I could manage them both but the real challenge was how to co-ordinate the hours and set my availability for each job so everyone would be happy. In the end... It just wasn't going to work so I had to choose. Urban trade was the obvious choice as I was starting out in a manager position, getting paid more and being given the potential for a raise, benefits and full-time hours in 2 months. I would have been crazy to turn that down. Calling the bakery was nerve racking and a little bit sad. I truly would have enjoyed that job but I feel like I made the right choice. So here I am, come Monday I am the new manager in training at Urban Trade and I couldn't be happier! They are already the nicest people I have had the opportunity of working with (I realize I haven't started yet). But I already feel so comfortable talking to my manager and fellow managers at the store.
Spencer and I also had our 11 month anniversary on Friday so this week has been full of celebration. We went to the mall yesterday and I gotta say, it felt good knowing that what I was spending would soon be coming back to me in a short few weeks (I got a pair of sandals, a pair of black flats, and two shirts to wear to my first shifts this coming week). Spencer is also enjoying his new full-time job and reaping the benefits as well.
Things are definitely going my way right now. My karma is at an all time high and I hope it stays there.
One last thing, my best friend Sarah just started her own blog and if you enjoy mine, you will enjoy hers even more! (Click her name to visit!) We hope to one day collaborate on a blog together.
P.S. I promise an art update tomorrow!
