The title pretty much sums everything up.
As some of you know, I signed up with a temp agency so that I have the flexibility to travel and because I’m not really sure what I want to do. Well I think my interviewer for the agency liked me so much that she passed my resume to the manager for an in-house position. I looked over the position description, went in for an interview and I got the call from the manager saying that they’d love to welcome me aboard!
I think this is the perfect thing for me right now. After doing food service for most of my life, I’ve been longing for a nice office job to learn new skills that would be applicable to a career path I might take in the future. And after the probationary period, I get full benefits! I’ve never had a job that came with benefits! And even though I won’t have the flexibility I initially wanted, I think this is a good thing for me. Setting down some roots seems so right somehow.
This is exciting! I’m going shopping tomorrow for more work clothes since I have to dress up a bit more than jeans and a t-shirt at work. Yay I am no longer a bum! I can finally pitch in for bills at home* and pay back loans!
Life is good now. Oohhh baby.
*For those of you who didn’t read my other thread, I worked at my mother’s restaurant pretty much most of my life. My mom just sold the restaurant and as a reward, I’ve been living at home rent- and bill-free while I’ve been helping around the house and traveling.
