An hour left on this shift and then one again on Thursday, then I AM DONE.
You have no idea how good this feels. It is so bittersweet, though.
I loved this job. I love helping these women. I love (most) of the people that I work with. I love the experience that it has offered me. I am a better human service professional because of it. I could not have asked for a better job while going to school.
I do not love what new management has done. I do not love not being able to survive on my hourly wage. I do not love being taken advantage of and asked to “contribute more” when I am already overexerting myself. I do not love the bickering and mind games that have taken over. I do not love that because I take initiative, if I make one mistake I am reprimanded and criticized, while other employees who mess up frequently are excused because it is “normal” for them.
I am sure that this sort of thing happens everywhere, but it is time for me to move on. It is time for me to step out of my comfort zone.
My internship starts in three weeks.
I graduate in December.
Time will go by so fast.
i’m with ya, girl. i wish i were a little more girly sometimes too.
I’m “girly” when I want to be, ya’know?
I just hate when people judge me for it.
When I mention that I like something overly “girly”, certain people freak out, and say that it’s something they never would have assumed that I liked.
Well, obviously you don’t know me! Hahah. Annoying.
Ya know, I really appreciate that my superiors at work notice how much of myself I put into this place. I love my job, I really do. And it shows. I’ve been told that I have been talked about on several occasions between bosses, and I really hope that maybe when/if we get some extra funding, I can get a raise.
I’ve been here for two years now, and I spend a lot of my time here.
I hope to keep this job until I am done with school, as it would be sorta silly for me to leave and start a new job (I only have 2 semesters left). I just really wish that I made more money.
I just looked at my Mint.com account, and I am embarrassed at the amount of nonsense shit that I buy.
I’m not allowing myself to buy anything that isn’t necessary from now until after vacation at the end of July.
- 1 maxi dress
- A new pair of sandals
- The rest of Jordan’s birthday present
- Tickets to the Science Center, or anything else that I do with my sister. We have a list of things to do this summer!
This will be an interesting experiment.
I NEED to start saving money.
