Hi everyone! Happy August.
It’s still hot, and hUmid (with a capital U for UGH) here, Summer is here for a good few more weeks. I’m hangin’ in there.
Can we talk? I mean, I think pretty much everyone who reads this is my friend. I hope so, anyway. While I try to keep this blog happy and peppy, life just isn’t like that all the time. Don’t get me wrong, everything is fine, but I’ve had some drama at work, and I have never really had this kind of thing come up. (well, not since junior high)
I am currently working with a woman who is….hmm…well, let’s just say she doesn’t like ME. I just erased the details I started to give. They really don’t matter, what matters is that I have had to take a really hard look at what my options are professionally. I didn’t think it would be that hard to find a good salon to work in here, and yet, that really seems to be the case.
Image Makers was the first salon I worked in, and it was PERFECT. (for me)
When it closed, I really felt stranded in this place. Anyway, I prayed, and talked with Chris, and my manager, and decided to move my station and try to make that work.
What do you do when someone who is old enough to be your mother won’t even sit down with you to talk, or hear an apology, (I did take responsibility for my part and offered amends, but she really was just looking for any reason to be mad) or look at you, talk to you, or even acknowledge your existence? geeze. I literally could feel hate radiating off of her. It’s really sad. I have never come across anyone like this and it has affected me.
A couple of weeks have past, and I have found that her not talking to me is just fine. 🙂 It still feels weird, and it’s not that easy to just find another place to work. If I did, it would be the 4th salon I’ve been to in 2 years! sheesh! that may not reflect well on ME.
I’m just trying to stay busy. When I’m busy, she doesn’t bother me, it’s the down time. I don’t stay there now, which could hurt me when it comes to walk ins. Hopefully time will make it better.
OK…venting over. lol
One of my options is to maybe start doing photography. So…..I decided to apply for a part time job at the portrait studio in the mall!
I figure it will be a great learning experience, and if I like it, maybe I can continue on. If not, I won’t! But it will also be a good way to make some Christmas money. We shall see! 🙂
With everything going on, and the heat, I haven’t had much photo mojo. Just a few nature pics here and there.
We have decided to move, and are looking to rent a house. I’ll keep you posted.
I saw ‘eat, pray, love’ and would suggest you read the book first if you want it to be a better movie.
That’s about it. Just life going on. I hope you are all well and happy. I miss you all, and having my friends to talk to. These are the times I miss being home, but it’s all good. Pray for us to find a nice, quiet, affordable house to rent, and for a drama free work zone for me! 🙂 Thank you in advance!
