Down but not out — Personal
The past month has been a blur of quiet and frowns. After some internal debate I decided that I was unfulfilled at work and considering I'm scheduled mostly for nights and weekends I feel as though I don't get enough time with the husband. If you can believe it, I'm spending too much time alone, and I'm bored with it. The ultimate loner that I am, I myself found this rather surprising. So, despite the efforts we made for me to keep my job, the job that I wanted to keep was unfortunately lost anyways. The amount of hours, the store, the people, the level of involvement, it had all changed and instead of feeling like an asset I began to feel like a cog.
Last week I found a job listing that called out to me. It whispered sweet nothings in my ear and flashed its brilliant smile in my direction. I got the interview, and then I got the job. (!) So, after my last two weeks for Pier 1 is served, I will then try my hand at being the Store Manager for a small independently owned African imports store called Swahili. It's located in downtown Portland, which I'm SO excited about, and the level of involvement I'll have with the business will be excellent training for that comic book store that Adam and I dream of one day opening. All together now, "YAY!"
Congrats! That sounds awesome!
Success comes to doers Lamar, that's why things have always gone your way. You make a father proud.
