Sooooo I had an interview with Old Navy yesterday. Mind you, I've been sick as a dog for approximately the past 84 hours. I was crying and dizzy and just flat out SICK. I dragged myself to the interview. Rather, IAN had to drag me there. Faked it like it was my JOB and ended up getting an offer.
But I'm going to today.
I AM NOT happy about it.
I'm just... tired of working all these crappy jobs I don't care about. I wanted something for this summer/fall that's in my field. Something photography or graphic design related. Something creative. Something where I can make a lot of decisions and not have someone breathing down my neck to make sales...
But apparently that's not happening for me yet. I'm just tired of jumping through hoops for people. I'm tired of having to suck up. I'm tired of having mean supervisors that make me hate my job.
I hope this job won't be like that, but I don't think it's too much to ask to actually LIKE what I do. So now I'm 22 years old and I'm getting ready to have yet ANOTHER mediocre part time job that I don't care about. I don't KNOW any of those people. I have to learn everything from scratch including attending a 4 HOUR training session... UGH. I'm just not thrilled about it at all. In fact, I'm just really torn up about it.
I know I should be happy, and that it IS still a job. In this economy, I should be happy to have anything at all, it's just the fact that I have to be a stooge for yet another company. That and the fact that who KNOWS how much I'll see Ian this summer with us working separate schedules.
I mean, there are lots of positives:
1. it's a JOB after all
2. air conditioned
3. it's not the crappy amusement park i used to work at
4. i love their clothes
5. employee discount
7. it's not food service
8. only part time which leaves plenty of time for photography
9. the one manager I met seemed nice
10. i've worked retail before so I KIND of know what to do
11. I prayed for a job and i got one. I really need income.
12. it's in Anderson with Ian
so yeah. I have a lot to be thankful for. It's just not what I want to be doing. Ok. I should stop moping. It will be great.... right?
