I've been doing some thinking lately. A lot of it actually...since, I was currently jobless.
That's right...I have a job! It's not what I would initially have chosen for myself, but it's a job. And it provides money for me to support my husband, and our furry children.
I have been jobless for about 2 months. And my application is currently floating around 20-25 businesses. And not a peep from one of them.
The job markets SUCKS.
Most of the jobs out there say "Must have 2-3 years of experience". Well.how in the world am I supposed to get experience when most jobs require it? I mean, you gotta start somewhere, right? How you do GAIN experience when no one will hire you because you don't have ENOUGH expereience? Sheesh.. ANYWAY...
So I went to Chick-fil-a. And they interviewed me the next day and hired me 2 days later. I am currently training to be a manager. Which is great. I am excited about it. I haven't actually started working, but that will happen this week sometime. And I will be evaluated every couple of months to see how I'm doing and then hopefully be promoted to manager. Things are looking up! :)
Chick-fil-a is a great company. And it also gives me the opportunity to do something else really exciting...
I may be going back to school to get my masters! It's not a done deal just yet, but we are throwing ideas around. So this may give me the opportunity to be off work by 3 and attend either online or take some night classes next semester. We will see...
For those of you who are "new" followers..hubby and I moved to Georgia right after we got married. I was going to graduate school at UGA for my masters in Social Work..and then got a job opportunity as an assistant for a wedding planning firm...you can read more about that here. Long story short, that didn't work out. And now hubby is in law school and I am providing for our family while he studies.
But the good news is, I have a job. and the stresses I had of providing for my family is slowly diminishing. I was so scared of not making enough money. I was scared of failing. But praise the Lord, I have some stability.
Thank you Lord! He will always provide for His children, even if it's not MY idea of provision. You know, my dream job would have been a social worker at an adoption agency or a marriage and family counselor..but right now at this stage of my life, I am blessed and thankful for a source of income. Because a lot of families don't have that.
And this is not the end of the road for me. This is a stepping stone to who I want to become. I am excited to see what the Lord has in store for me.
On a totally different note,
My mom and stepdad also paid us a visit! AND she solved the issue of my blank wall that our TV is on. Read about that here. I will be posting about that tomorrow.
AND another post is in the works about organizing. And man, I am excited about that one.
