I have officially ended my career as a store manager in one of the worst malls ever created. Okay maybe not that extreme, but the mall isn’t what it used to be, not by a long shot. I could go a few hours at a time during a shift without a single person entering my store. Good riddance. It is made even better by my boss giving me off through Sunday. Yay for actually having not one, but two full days off from both of my jobs! Happy fucking New Year to me! I’m actually rather excited at my prospects for the new year, today I received a phone call to do a preliminary interview with me and to then set up an in person interview for a job doing ABA therapy with autistic children. Even better, it’s not in VA. Beyond that, I am still gainfully employed and will have a new store to call my own by Monday. Fingers crossed.
I think out of the 80 possible hours I could have worked since I left work at 4:00pm today, I worked approximately 55 of them….good thing I only have one shift left this week and it’s a baby shift-only 4.5 hours. Phew I’m not going to go over the max 60 my doctors have set. If there is a job where I work Sunday-Wednesday 40 hours a week and make enough money to live/function, please tell me where to sign up. That would be heaven. I am so excited just to have tomorrow mid-morning through Sunday morning off its insane. If the weather would cooperate I’d do plenty of outdoor ice skating, snowboarding and hiking. I love the rain, but it is really making things harder. Oh well. I have the time, I have the means, guess I just have to look to the next closest state. Hopefully they have some good history, hiking and exploring to be done.
If it is meant to be, it will be. I believe that my happiness, prosperity and overall enjoyment of life is meant to be. It won’t be something I force, but rather something I foster and encourage to grow. Just because we stop doesn’t mean the world does. It’s ever changing, people change, circumstance change. What you knew isn’t always valid in the present, grow adapt, change with everyone else.
