ALL iN a DaYs WoRk...but not anymore

Today was my LAST day of work—I am retired my sister put it. I am happy to be done…but sad to leave good friends behind. I really wish I’d had found that job earlier—I really loved it. It was a good fit for me, and I feel like I really contributed a lot with my talents and skills—old and learned.

I’ve had lots of jobs. And most of them I hated, but endured.

*Before formally working I seriously babysat A LOT…good motherhood prep I guess.

*I worked 2 summers at the Kirtland Historic Village back home in Ohio as a gardener/custodian

*An early morning (as in 4am-7am) custodian on BYU campus at the JFSB.

*I worked about a month at New York & Co at the mall. I was in charge of the fitting rooms mostly. Though I have to admit, I didn't mind the days they stuck me in the storage room unwrapping and tagging clothes...SO glad that job was only a month!

*Jamba Juice was my next job—I stayed there 7 months until the other workers drove me to insanity and I quit. Probably my second favorite job though. I was dang good at it too.

*I worked a month as a telephone surveyor for the BYU Business School. By far my highest paying job at $10 an hour

*I worked again as an early morning custodian for about 7 weeks before I got married (this time it was 5-8:30am) at the Fletcher Building. I made nice with the head student custodian and ended up spending a lot of time just talking to people she knew in the building (they get there at 6am)

*THEN, I found my amazing secretary job in the Civil Engineering Department and I’ve been there for 8 months. My longest ever held job…besides the new job that I will have in about a month… Being a mom…duh! And don’t try to tell me that’s not a real job. It’s more than a “real” job; it’s for forever, underpaid, under-appreciated and the hardest yet most rewarding job I will ever have. I am both terrified and excited for it.

Anyway, regardless of how many jobs I’ve had, I’ve learned valuable lessons and skills that helped me grow and develop into a better person. I’m sad to leave my friends at the CE department, but it was inevitable. I will definitely be going back to visit though! (they’ll probably hunt me down and kill me if I don’t bring in my baby boy to show off)
