What This Semester Will Have In Store For Me.

Why hello my little chickadees. How was everyone's weekend? Spectacular? I have been distant lately, I know. My posts haven't had much depth in them, so I apologize. My life has been in fast forward lately. My foot has been petal to the metal everyday after the next. So, now that I have time to recollect myself and I now will enlighten you on my whereabouts lately.

I am a workaholic. I want to make something of myself. I want to be successful. I have an acute sense of self awareness when it involves my future. I constantly question my actions today and if it will cause conflict with my future. At some point I will find my center, things will come full circle and I will stop being self-conscious of my decisions. Until then, I will continue to be a workaholic and strive to be successful.

My job that I currently have hasn't exactly been cutting it. I don't get the hours I hoped for, because right now is our downtime. My bank account was looking a little slim due to the holidays. I spent a little too much over the holidays, but who doesn't? Right? Well, in order to fulfill my checking account's thirst I went out and got another job. It took them awhile to call me back and confirm I got the position after my interview, but better late than never. When I received the call, it was a huge, HUGE, relief off my chest. I am now a waitress/bartender in training at this fancy, country-club like restaurant. I have to wear all black from head to toe (I will post pictures of my attire later). So far I love it and I make great money off tips, especially on weekends. My first weekend dinner shift I made $150 in five hours. I could get used to this. Actually, it is going to take a lot to get used to with memorizing the lunch menu, dinner menu, mixed drinks, wine list, and so much more. In the end, it will be worth it.

So there ya go. That's where I have been lately. No, I haven't been anywhere exciting like Ireland or Spain. Though I wish I was there. That would be freaking amazing. I am just a poor college kid that is now juggling two jobs, classes (18 hours to be exact), soccer training and the little social life I now have. This semester is going to be a rough one, but I think I can handle it. Hopefully.


  1. ah congratulations on the new job! This semester will be tough for me too...we can do it!

  2. I used to say "metal to the petal" .. shhh don't tell anyone.
