Thursday, April 15, 2010
My perseverance on my temp job has paid off. I worked my ass off for ten straight days and I must say it was worth it. I will be working at the store I helped remodel for one more week and then I will start working at the store that is closer to my home after that. Both store managers came up to me Wednesday to give me the good news. I am so happy that I don't have to file for unemployment.

This might not be a dream job but I think I will truly enjoy it. I like working with the public and enjoy helping people out. In this economy I can't complain. I was lucky to find a job so quickly. I didn't miss one day of work. Of course, I wanted to find a job. Some people who lose their jobs take unemployment for as long as they can. It would drive me crazy to not work.

Enough about my good news. Does anyone else have good news to share?

What a great way to start my morning! Great news from a SISta!

Congratulations, BJ! It's nice to know that hard work and competancy pay off. They're lucky to have someone who's as dedicated as you. Dream job or not, it pays the bills. Most everyone is in the same boat. It's in the off hours that we pursue our dreams. You CAN have it all. Just keep pushing! :)

As for me... it's not great news, but it's good news. My agent LOVES the proposal I'm working on. Three chaps, done. Series overview, done. Now I just have to finish the first book synop so she can pitch it all and then... maybe in a few weeks, hopefully, I'll have some GREAT news. :)

Hi Beth

I'm crossing my fingers that your good news turns to GREAT news!!!

Chris Behrens said...

Wow, congrats B.J. and Beth! Hard work does indeed pay off, and a job is a job. As for me....hmm...good news.....umm, I woke up breathing this morning!

SIS BJ said...

Hi Chris

That is indeed great news. You are right, a job is a job.

SIS Brandy said...

Great job BJ! I knew they'd want to keep you. No great news here. Maybe by the end of the day I'll have something to add!

SIS BJ said...

Hi Brandy

Thank you and I hope you will be back later with something great to add.

Alyson Reuben said...

Yay! I'm so glad all your hard work paid off and you got the job, BJ! Since both managers took the time to tell you, you must've made one heck of an impression on them! Retail can be very hard, but it can also be fun at times. And I'm not saying that flippantly - I worked in it for years.

SIS BJ said...

Hi Alyson

Thank you. I must have made an impression because I just heard that they want to start training me for asst. manager right away. I'm so excited, I get a pay raise already. I have worked retail for years as well. I know what you mean.

Beth Ciotta said...

Wow! A promotion AND a raise even before your official first day! Way to go, BJ!!!!!!!!!!!

My good news? I wrote quite a bit last night. Today was a beautiful and warm day. I took incredible pictures of my kids outside. No complaints here!
