I'm alive, I promise! If you've been wondering about my absence for the past couple months, I've been working nonstop at Lamb & Flag (an awesome possum retail store). Sadly, yesterday was the last day of our brand being open. T'was a day of mixed emotions. I felt like the last three months had been summer school and the last day of school was yesterday, now we're going our separate ways.
Although I hadn't been there long, I felt apart of a family. I couldn't have asked for a better (first) retail experience than the one I received here. I loved everything about my job, especially my coworkers (and I guess the clothes were a perk too). Everyday was like hanging out with my friends and that's a rare find. New memories and long lasting friendships were made in the process of making this experience. I will miss working here and working with this team, you might even say family.
Besides making new friends, I grew a lot in the past months. To be honest, I am a very shy person and that's hard to remain while being a salesman. So I definitely had to throw that out the window and become more confident. Working here, I've learned that I don't want just any job. I don't want a job just to make money, I want a job that will build towards my future. So, currently I am unemployed and looking to work at the local Urban Outfitters. Fingers crossed, I have an interview next week!
Today we threw a surprise baby shower for our district manager. It was a day of plenty of tears, hugs, and laughter that I captured in a little video below.
