May a share with you, a famous quote:
"I will NEVER wait another table as long as I live" ~ Rachel Hawley, circa 2007.
Well, Miss Myra (a former boss of mine) called today and told me that she has spoken with the owners of Elizabeth's Pizza (a restaurant not even a block away from my office) and let them know that I was looking for a little bit of work and that I had waitressing experience. The owner, Tony, responded "Yes, send her over". I am supposed to go over immediately after work today (never mind that I had a LONG run planned out). Myra said shes almost positive that they will give me job. I am happy and depressed all at the same time.
Ability to make student loan payments (simultaneously with rent and board--not in place of one or the other)
Possibility of building a Savings Account (I hear of this mythical concept of saving, but have never had the luxury of doing so)
Meet new people?
Extra money so that I can really enjoy what free time I have
Saving for a truck/ trailer??
Not living in a constant state of survival mode
waiting freaking tables!
working 50+ hours a week
way less free time for Granite and Running (my two loves)
embarrassment of having 2 degrees and needing to wait tables
owner's wife is my age
will be working with high school students
generally bruised ego (see above quote)
I will let you know how this goes down. I'm thinking bitter, like medicine (necessary and horrible all at the same time).
BUT, I will never give up on horses (my dreams) because I wasn't willing to work (hard) for them!
