...the newest Starbucks barista!!! YAY! I got the job! And the best part is they are 100% okay with my Christmas travel arrangements and it had no influence on whether or not I got the job! It was a rather interesting experience though...firstly I went to the wrong Starbucks, 30 minutes away from the one I was supposed to be at. I got to the wrong one 15 minutes early, checked the location, realized I was wrong, and started booking it across town. I was freaking out and called to tell them the situation and they said that was fine. Then on the way I encountered an accident that was thoroughly holding up traffic...but I said a little prayer because it was an injury accident (and I couldn't help but wonder if I had gone to the right store would I have possibly been IN the accident...?) Then I finally got to the right store 30 minutes late. ARGH! Anyway...it didn't matter! Things went great, 10 minute interview and they offered the job on the spot! Super excited! Also, I didn't even realize I had applied for shift supervisor, but they are starting me as barista and then possibly moving up to supervisor! Great thing is that when I have my weekly schedules I can still substitute on days I'm not working because subs can pick up jobs as they want them (and I have my final training to get into the system tomorrow morning). So I went from sort of having one job (very part time subbing at the preschool) to having a full time job and two part time jobs! God is good.
...I mark today as the turning point. Thank you Jesus!!!!
