So I wrote earlier about not being able to find a job, well I was lucky enough to get a call back today after an interview I had an hour before. Tomorrow I go take a drug test and then I will be a paid employee of PetSmart.
Although it's not in the field I thought I wanted, I am so glad to finally have a job. It has been such a long rocky year going to interviews, employers loving your interview, and then being heartbroken when they tell you they can't hire you because of your past. Over the last year I have had different places offer me employment and then revoke the offer once my background came back.
I am actually really excited about this opportunity because I love animals and I have room to grow in the company. I am learning sometimes I have to step back from a situation and look at the big picture, just because this is not the job I have been dreaming of does not mean that job will never come. This job is just a stepping stone in the right direction!
So to all my lovelies out there struggling with the direction their life has them going at the moment, just remember directions can be changed easily.
