back to the daily grind...




how appropriate my title is...why, you may ask?? well, those close to me know that our company was bought out last year and we knew that layoffs were coming, little did i know that i would be one of those being laid off, it wasnt pretty and still isnt at the old workplace, in fact it is a mess..so believing that everything happens for a reason, i decided that instead of going out and getting a boring desk job doing what i had been doing, i would do what i want to do...and what is that??? WORKING AT MY FAVORITE COFFEE JOINT~STARBUCKS....
yep, today i was up at 5am, didnt like that part but once i got there it went fast, i learned the drive-through..the people at my starbucks are all very cool and the manager is a good friend, in fact she was the original owner of our great dane-KAJ....so i am working around 20ish hours a week and the pay isnt that great but i do have benefits and all the STARBUCKS i want!!!!! and there isnt that corporate bullshit to put up with like most companies.....

***************************

okay this is a card, i made for my friend-kathleen whose birthday was last friday, she loves ravens, but the funny part is that the image of the ballerina is a picture of julie when she was taking ballet..isnt that a great picture of her!!!



she is going to kill me...hehehehe

Love your card!! And what a little twinkle toes cutie pie Julie was--I see a new nickname for Jenny on the horizon!!!
I am so glad it's you getting up at 5 AM and not me....however, all the starbucks I can drink might make the difference!! You go get 'em, Doll Face!!

Trixie said...

Great card Kim, and I love Julie's headress! And you ARE the perfect funky kind of person who works at Starbucks..all artsy and stuff. You go girl.

I have been thinking about you lots this past week! You already know that better pay but a boring job equals stress, so I think you are smart to work where you will be happy! And how many days will it take to try all the coffee products??? Talk about a PERK at work?? (sorry - couldn't resist the chance to pun!)

HUGS

Whooohooooo!!!! Very cool on the job front. And I bet that one thing that gets you up and out the door is the coffee waiting for you!! Good deal. I have a huge respect for Howard Schultz and his desire to make sure his employees have insurance. Not many places offer it with less than 32-40 hours. Have fun, girl.
