New Year, New Adventures

Since this is a new year, I decided that I would try something new...and blog. We'll see how long it lasts, but it seems like it will be fun. So much had happened to Craig and I since we've been married. I feel like I have learned so much over the past few months, and I know that I have so much more to learn still. One thing that I am being constantly reminded of is that I shouldn't worry; God keeps pounding that into my head, and I'm not always doing a good job of listening. I feel as though I have gotten better, but I obviously still have a long way to go. haha.

Craig got hired at CARE Ambulance and absolutely loves it. He finished up his 3 months of 'probation' on Monday, so he now holds a regular shift. He gets so excited about going to work and always has crazy stories to tell when he comes home. We don't get to see each other very much anymore though since he got his regular shift and I got a huge promotion at work. He works from 1pm-11pm, and I work from 6am-1pm. Boo! We were so fortunate to spend a few months together without working when we were first married, so this feels like torture to us now!

I got hired at a new Forever 21 in the Puente Hills mall about 6 weeks ago. It's actually a really fun job too! The store is 30,000 sq. ft...so it is so so so big! I've already been promoted twice, but this last promotion was a big one! I got hired as a sales associate, got promoted to cash wrap, and then recently got promoted to...(drum roll please)...Accessory Specialist/Visual Merchandiser. Woo hoo! Basically, I am in charge of the entire 'For Love' section from stocking the merchandise to setting up the visual displays, following corporate updates, building fixtures, etc. I am having a lot of fun with it so far. I got evaluated by my boss the other day and I scored really high, and am actually available to be promoted again soon. haha. Who knew that I was suited for retail and visual work?! I think that I would feel bad taking an even bigger promotion right now since I am supposed to be student teaching in Fall 2009. We'll see what happens.

Anyways, I should get going.
