Work and changes

While I miss the little guy I used to babysit for, I am looking forward to starting my new job on Monday.  It is temporary while the admin is on maternity leave and I am ok with that.  After being at a retail clothing job with a manager who is controlling, I am thrilled about it.  I actually gave my 2 week notice there and my last day is October 2.  I made it a month working there.  I have worked in a clothing store and a video store before and have worked in the corporate office of a major drugstore chain over the past 20 years or so.  I am full aware of how retail works and how business works. Heck I have a part time candle business that I am working on making full time and am starting my own website.  So for a manager to tell me I don't know anything about profitability is a crock.  My decision was made based on what is best for me.  Plus her controlling, and know it all attitude helped in the decision.

My boyfriend got a call about a job in Iowa.  Mind you we live in the suburbs of Chicago.  While I am going through every emotion in the book, deep down I know he needs to take it since construction work is slow here.  He will be 4 hours away and when I get the chance I will drive to him.  It is a 4 hour drive so I am glad that I can drive it and I have a friend down in the area where he will be that I recently reconnected with.  We have been together for 11 years and this is just one of things that we need to go through as it is life.  People do it all the time.  We can too.  Our love will bring us through it.

9/11 never forget

I still remember where I was when I saw the 2nd plane hit the tower 13 years ago. I have the same feelings too. Scared and uncertainty.  It didn't matter I didn't know the people that were killed that day. They were fellow Americans and my heart still aches for them and their friends and family. My heart stil aches for this country for what happened. I will never forget.

Looking for work. Not sure if it's the all the right places or the wrong ones

Looking for work is kind of like looking for a needle in a haystack. Kind of hard. With everybody looking at the same jobs, it's like do employers throw all the resumes in the air and the one on the top is the one that gets the job. Does that person have to pick up all the resumes? 

I'd pick them up for free and then network with them to see if thy wanted to sell candles or look at monkeys chasing elephants.
