endings and beginnings...

i left this morning, not knowing what i wanted to do in regards to my jobs, just knowing i was SO sick of working two jobs.

i come home tonight, with only one full time job and benefits.

rawk.

the manager at michaels, denise, went off on an evil tangent that had nothing to with my little quip i had made, making me feel like utter doo doo. i went in during my break and turned in my two weeks notice. it hurt and i almost cried doing so, but i felt it was something i HAD to do. each 5 hour shift feels like a lifetime, and i don't see myself moving any further in the company, nor wanting to, really.

i go next door to office max for my nighttime shift. the store manager corners me and tells me that the full time with benefits position is mine, should i want it, but i have to PROMISE to continue showing excellent employee-ship and continue setting standards for office max quality, blah di blah. i didn't have to even ask for it, which was AWESOME, and wonderful, cuz i wasn't sure exactly how to word it if i did. it had all been word of mouth as to what had happened, and tony the assistant manager had been following him all day, telling him to talk to me.

double rawk.

so as of june 2nd, i will only have one, full time job. granted, it's still retail, but it's $8 an hour, i'm good at what i do, and it doesn't take a lot of brains. i like working with the people i work with. i get benefits. every single friday will no longer be payday, but boo freaking hoo.

i'm happy with this for now.

yes, i'm quite happy about this, although i'm still sad about leaving.

though i don't know why, because every single time i'm working at michaels, i'm filled with dread at having to go, bored to the tooth while i'm there, and 5 hours feels like 10.

Woo Hoo!

I think peace of mind is more important than money. Im just glad it worked out so you got both, more or less ;)

me, too. i mean, it breaks my heart that i'm leaving michaels, but it's SO time to go.

i think that every single time i work now. there's nothing for me there.

Hooray!
Congratulations!

The fact that you're a good employee and were rewarded as such is so awesome. That's how it ought to be everywhere, dammit.
