IT’s not rocket science, it’s only the front counter…

Well, onward sweet flowering life.  About 3 weeks ago, I ended my stint with that place I was, one of which I shant mention, and now I am working for a temp agency, and my first gig started today, I had a day of training on Saturday, and today was my full day of work, sure, it is only for a week, then I move on to other pastures.  It is pretty interesting indeed, this stint is for a florist in the city, I am at the front counter, is it pretty busy, for this will be mother’s day, and it will be crazy.  I never knew so much went in to flowers, oh the business behind the petals and stems.  I was a bit nervous, but the crew I work with is so very gracious, and I feel very comfortable in this spot.  I am really digging this.  I will get new assignments for now, this is working for me, of course, always looking for longer term things, as the process goes on.  Here’s to the sweet smell from the flowers of life.

Thank you for calling…

How may I help you today?  Yes!  I passed my sign offs for training, and I did really good.  The trainer was even awed, but really, he wasn’t because he had confidence in me.  In fact in the whole class, there are just a few more sign offs that need to be done in this training class, and we graduate on Friday.  Yes!  I am now an Agent for a known purple and orange shipping company, for the website.  Anyhoo, I am still getting my shipping legs underneath me, I took a couple of calls today, oh my, but it is what it is, people are going to be people, the most part they were nice, and understanding, there were some that were not to stellar, but hey, not going to complain at this time in my life, I am blessed to have a job. Will get schedules Friday, it will be the 1 to 10pm spot for now, after 6 weeks, then we can bid on what schedules we want, I think for right now, I am going to keep what they give, there will be more time in the evening to get a better grip on the job at hand.  Stay tuned.

This has been a pretty exhausting week, and it is still not complete.  So I have been contemplating going down town this Saturday, to check out the last days of south by, ah, so much to think about.  If it happens, it happens, if it don’t  you won’t hear or see it.

I am now on season two of Arrow, this show is amazing.  Totally love it, totally.  I am now in season three or is it four of Agents of Shield, whatever it is, this show totally rocks as well.  2016, shaping up to be a good year in television.

So on that note, I need to get to my shows, stay tuned friends, family, and online readers.  I will keep you as informed as I can through my blog.  Enjoy your night.

 

Nailed it!

That would be the interview I had scheduled for today, yes, I nailed that bitch down.  They made me an offer right on the spot.  Now by no means does it mean I am all the way in, I am in by way of getting the offer, and starting the intense 7 week training leading up to the actual job, if you know what I mean.  I start the training on the 8th of next month.  It is Monday thru Friday, from 8 to 5, for seven weeks, 4 weeks training, 2 weeks of phone and being on the floor, taking calls, and putting in what you have learned, and 1 week of everything else, then if that is aced, then I will be on the floor and one of the agents there.  Oh Lord, thank you.  I am going to have to really buckle down, take notes like no ones business and get my mind prepared to do this.  New year, new endeavors.  That interview, might have been the hardest I had to do, but I prepared a little more than usual.  I am just thanking the Lord for more opportunities that keep on coming my way.  Stay tuned…

In light of great news for me, sad news for the world once again, Glen Frey died the other night.   So very tragic,  I wanted to see The Eagles when they performed here in Austin last year, but was not able to do that.  Here today, gone tomorrow at times, may he rest in peace.  This starting year, has really been a sad beginning in the world of music, and television.

Speaking of television, I just started watching this show on NetFlix last night, the first season of The Gates.  It is about a gate guarded community, and the new police chief that is in charge of policing it.  Behind the gates, hold lots, and lots of secrets. Vampires, witches, wearwolves, oh my!  So many secrets.  I am liking it, so tonight I just may finish up this first season.  Looking forward also to season 6 of Game of Thrones, as well, but that is not until April.  Hi ho friends, off to watch The gates, here’s to a great day, and awesome night, along with awesome winter weather here in Austin, sun shine, and smiles.

The Truth Is Still Out There…

Oh so excited about the X-Files returning, even though it is six or nine episodes, it should be really good, I saw some of the previews and yeah, I am really thinking that I am going to enjoy this.  I already have been having a ball watching Heroes reborn, so cant wait till next week for the X-Files.  I watch the show on netflix, up until Fox leaves the show, that is where I really stop watching it.  Hey, nothing is better than Fox and Dana, and when Fox left the show, it was no more interesting to me.  I did happen to watch the movies, they were alright, yeah, just alright.

But I am so, so, sooo!  Glad that The Black List is back on, missed it in the couple of months it was on hiatus.  Ugh, but now just all yays.

The weather is hot and cold here, one week, great weather, sun shine, and blue skies, the next, cold, dreary, and gray.  Yeah, sure winter, winter, winter is here, but I would rather have sun shine and warm, ah, to be continued on that one there.

On a brighter note, I have an interview on Tuesday, keeping all my spirits bright.  So enjoy your night friends, and remember, the truth will be revealed, no matter what.

The road less traveled…

Looks like this road will finally be less traveled by both my mom and dad.  The road between Austin and San Angelo.  Today, me and mom traveled to San Angelo to finish up getting prescription’s for him.   He is down here fully.  And the good news is that he will start his new job in the morning . He will be working,  for United moving.  Yup, already on a job.  It is all good.  So this road will not be traveled often.  There will still be times that they will go, but for now, these wheels are heading home to Austin Texas.

Will not know, if I don’t try…

New things that is, I will not know how good I can be at something, if first I never step forward to try it.  So it goes.  Today I put in an application to a job, a customer service job, ever since I heard about this company coming here, I have been thinking about putting in a job, at first I did not know where they were going to build it, but a month ago just on a ride to check out the Kirkland’s I saw the building, and today I have put in an application there.  So basically it can be either a Yes, or a No, but either way, I have stepped forward into putting myself in that position.  Yes, this is a new year for me, and with that new year, I am all about new things and adventures for my life, so send out prayers of goodness for me, and great things on new journeys.  I know there are new and sweeter opportunities out there for me.  Today I have put it out there in the universe and on the website!!!

Beyond 365

Day 332:

Today I am…  Going Hard.  At work that is, I can see my overhead coming down.  Basically it is getting real.  People are being terminated for performance issues, so I need to step mine up.  That is what I am doing.  Stay tuned.

Just sat down to a salad I made, think I put too many onions in it.  It is good, but think I am going to pick out some of the onions..  tomorrow I am going to make baked BBQ drumsticks.  And more of my salad minus all the onions. And some pasta noodles. 

Well, life is rolling along for me.  Before I know it the new year will be here.  Yes indeed! Time is moving on.  Well hope time is good to all my reader’s , and friends.  Enjoy the weekend.

Today I am…  Going Hard.
