I guess I'll grow up
The hardest part about being married is that fact that I'm now an adult. I mean I'm 22 so you'd think this would have happened before now but I guess I hadn't fully bloomed. (a different bloomage besides certain body parts)
For the first week of married life-- I worked once a week at a tanning salon making an hourly wage then I was home the rest of the week trying to put our new super cute apartment together and looking for a grown up job.
Mid way through that first week I got a phone call from a job that I had applied for (but was positive I wouldn't get because I'm so underqualified and I'd only done a phone interview). I then received the best news ever! They actually were crazy enough to hire me!
I am now the Marketing Representative at New Dawn Technologies. My favorite part about the job is that it's salary and it comes with full benefits--if you know Fred you know that insurance is very much needed because super glue does not always work.
My first day was Monday--and here I am on my third day. So far so good. It's going to be a challenge but I think I'm up for it.
I'm still learning what the company actually does and what my position actually means so so far I'm a little frustrated and very tired.
But can you beat a job the doesn't really care when you come in in the mornings (as long as you get your work done), lets you wear whatever you want (no speedos), provides free drinks, pays for half your gym membership and requires you to dress up on Halloween?? I think not.
I think I'll like my new grown up job a lot.
Now if only there was someone to clean my house now because it's a mess!! Any volunteers!?
