Three weeks ago, I moved back to my hometown of St. Petersburg, FL. It was a good vacation for about 2 weeks, no school, no job, no worries. Oh yeah, no friends. At first I didn’t search too extensively for a job, I was enjoying my freedom from responsibility. But as my passive searching for a job went on, I started to get a little worried that maybe it wasn’t going to pan out. But today, I finally got the call. I got a job at a CVS pharmacy as a technician! Even better, it’s only a couple miles from my house, and a straight shot from my school. I’ve been in pharmacy for almost a year now, and I’ve found that it’s more active than most entry level positions. More responsibility, respect, and it pays well too. They are willing to start me at what I was making at my last job, and willing to work with my schedule when school starts.
I’m getting the sense that this may all finally work out for me, moving cross country (from Pueblo, CO), starting over, making new friends, finding a job.
Getting a job was the final piece of the puzzle that makes it worth it. Parts of this have been hell, but more than that it’s been hell with a silver lining. Luckily I am thankful that I have had a strong and supportive family and an extensive network of family friends to help me in any way imaginable.
So this is my welcome back party for myself, that maybe things are starting to look up again.
