Never have I ever...

...had a big girl, Monday through Friday, 8-5 job before now. But I have almost completed my first week of being in the big girl world!

And DAAAYYYYUUUMMM, ya girl is tired.

Seiously, I love my new job. There are so many things that make it awesome, and I think it's only going to get better. I am going through a three month training process right now, and each week or so I am getting a little more responsibility put on me. But from the word go, I have been slammed. I mean non-stop. I never in a million years thought 8-5 would go by so fast! I can't imagine how busy and hectic things are going to be when I am fully responsible for everything.

But right now, my brain is pretty much mush. I have information overload. And I can't possibly imagine how long it is going to take me to get used to this schedule. Going from a bartending job and retail-type schedule before...this is a complete 180 for me, and my body is slow to adjust!

Oh, but wait. The girl training me, who held this position before...? Well, I found out yesterday she is getting married in two weeks, and will then be on her honeymoon for a week. FREAK OUT TIME.

In two weeks, I have to be (sort of) able to do everything by myself and that has me over here hyperventilating just a wee bit.

Anyways, I know the other lovely people I work with will be there to help me if I need it, and I will make it. I am just so thankful for this job, and how perfect it is.

I promise to get back on the blogging train after I get through this first work week, my little baby brother graduating from high school TONIGHT, and this awesome three day weekend!

Thanks for all the positive thoughts and prayers y'all sent my way during interviews, the waiting process and this first week!! :)


  1. Came across your blog not too long ago and I'm in the same boat as you. Started my first big girl job two weeks ago and I'm still adjusting and trying to take it all in, but I'm so grateful! Congratulations you'll do great!

    1. Thanks so much, and congratulations to you as well!! :)
