New Job, New Experiences

If someone had told me two years ago that I would be working in retail in 2011, I would've called them a total liar. Now I would have totally had to eat my words. I decided to accept a position at a local outlet store. ( Sorry for the hush-hush; haven't really read up on the etiquette for this job as far as disclosing info online. Hope to be able to share all I can because I LOVE this store and the deals are fantastic!!)Anywho, the job that I took is entry level, low paying, and I love it. I am only part-time but I still enjoy it. It is very different from anything that I've ever done. It's funny to think that I went from being a phlebotomist (diagnostic technician) to being a "store associate". I laugh out loud sometimes when I think about the choices I've made in life. They may not make sense to many, but they make sense to me and that's what counts. Healthcare will always be a part of me, but it just feels good to wear a different hat career-wise. One day I will have that professional career that I've always wanted, but for now, this is okay. It's been a long time since I've been able to say that I actually like my job. Who woulda thought it would be at a store??? Now to figure out how to work and not shop!! I hope I still have a paycheck at the end of the pay period. I already knew that shopping was my weakness and now I work at a store....Ummm...I think I just may have to call shoppers anonymous!!! Thanks for reading...stay tuned for more of me and this thing I call life!!! Peace and blessings!!!

Wow! has It really been more than a year????

As strange as it really seems to me, it has been more than a year since I started blogging. How on Earth did I let my blogiversary (May 10th)slide by without notice? It's funny that a year ago blogging seemed like such a big part of my life. What a difference a year makes. life has dealt me quite a few challenges this year and I am still not quite sure if they've made me stronger; wiser for sure, but stronger???? Anywho, it's time to get back to the real reason this blog was started. It was meant to be an outlet for those passions of mine that get buried in this hectic whirlwind called life. My soul aches to pour out the written word but the time it takes is seldom afforded to me. Blogging world you will be my muses along with the rest of world in general as I embark on year 2 of this journey.
