After 2 years of feeling desperate to have my first job, I finally got my first job at a frozen yogurt shop! OH BOY! It was a NIGHTMARE! I’m only exaggerating… a little. It was a nightmare I was sure I didn’t want to live through ever again, so I texted the manager the next morning after my first night of training to let him know that I’m OUT (I quit)! Here’s how it went: Happy little me in my cute over sized uniform started off behind the cash register alongside the manager. Once it hit 10:00 PM, things started to shift from rainbows and lollipops to stormy clouds and chewed gum stuck in hair. The manager did most of the work because I was just a road block preventing him from getting home at a decent time.
I hated that some night shifts I would have to do what he did! Wash the 100 and something dishes, mop the floor, clean the counters, wipe off the yogurt machines, and stack the chairs all on my own late at night when ghosts and burglars are out lurking to steal some frozen yogurt. WORST OF ALL, I would have to take apart a frozen yogurt machine to clean. Imagine if I would’ve taken out something I wasn’t supposed to! No wonder why he didn’t want me to get in the way! I probably would’ve gotten home around 2 in the morning if it wasn’t for him! All I wanted to do was work behind the cash register.
One of the only things I did do by myself that night is, drop a bucket of water that probably could’ve broken my back. I couldn’t lift it so my dumb idea was to use the ledge to tip it over. It resulted with me spilling the bucket of water all over the floor almost reaching the chords of the frozen yogurt machines. Of course I annoyed the manager. I couldn’t blame him though! It was 1 in the morning after all. If you’re afraid of making mistakes at work or are crying over an embarrassing moment, just think of my story and remember whatever could happen or happend isn’t/wasn’t worse than me dropping a bucket of water.
My thoughts behind quitting
Whew! I was terrified to send the I’m quitting text especially after only the first day! Before I did quit I asked myself, “Is being unhappy every time I work or even being unhappy over thoughts of going to work worth going through for the money? It would take a huge toll on me.” No it wasn’t worth it. I live with my mom who gives me the opportunity to focus on school and my blog. She supports me by paying for my car, keeps me alive with food and shelter. She buys clothes for me so I can be poor yet cute and she takes me on trips! Right now is my chance to quit whatever job I hate. I am able to avoid working in jobs I hate and doing things I don’t like. I don’t want to waste what I have right now because one day,even though I’m going to work hard not to, I’ll have to go through jobs I hate to pay for my bills, living expenses, all while supporting the expensive hobbies of mine! I’ll even have a cat and dog to look after! I’m so thankful and fortunate to have the life I have because of my mom.
Sssooo as bad as it might sound, I’m a 21 year old girl with no job living off of my mom (who I love very much) and whatever money I make from selling on eBay and occasionally from painting dogs and helping a teacher out, or from my grandpa who gives me money sometimes. Is it so bad if I’m happy though? I’ll figure myself out and I’m working on figuring out who I want to be. Jobs will always be out there anyway.
What I’m doing now and my hopes for the future
Don’t worry, I’m working towards my future! Currently I’m moving towards working in the area of graphic design. You’ll figure out soon that I change my future plans often. In the end, I just want to have a job where I’ll have the flexibility to travel with my mom and make enough money to buy everything I want and buy whatever my mom wants. I’m currently attending community college and hoping to FINALLY transfer to university! If you’d like to hear about my schooling and need advice let me know! I’d love to blog for a living as well! Who knows where life will take me.
I haven’t gone back to enjoy my favorite frozen yogurt since I’ve quit. I’m going to have to deal with facing the manager and owner this summer because I won’t be able to survive without the frozen deliciousness and it’ll be hard to keep away because it’s across from where I go to the gym!!! I even hide my face if I’m just walking by. Ah, I’ll probably give Hollister a try. Let’s see how that goes! At least I have a love for clothes and shoes.
Thank you so much for reading my posts! I love talking to you; I hope to see you next week when we meet again. Bbbyyyeeee!
Hello 👋🏻I’m Karina! I love fashion. My style is very simple and I hope I help out any of you who struggle with even making a simple outfit. I also do reviews of products I find interesting and write about places I visit. You won’t find much of me going out to places though because I don’t get out of the house very often. In addition, I occasionally show my art I create. I hope you enjoy my world!
