At 1:00PM today I shook my first boss’ hand as I clocked out for the final time at my first place of employment as a teen. I was originally hired in May of 2008. I have put in four years of work there, and I think it is time to move on. It was not going to be easy for me to work two jobs and go to school, so I am sticking with my new job. It feels great to be moving on and doing something new. I will visit the grocery store every once and awhile when I need some groceries. I definitely will not forget all of the people I have worked with and the experiences I had at the store. All of the laughs that were caused by all of the screwing around will never be forgotten. There are some things I had a tough time working with and that I thought I could fix, but it did not seem like I could make a big enough difference to make the work easier for everyone. It is a small store will tightly knit employees so there was plenty of drama to go around, and that is something I will not miss. There is drama at my new place of employment as well. I think there is a bit in every workplace.
Once again, it feels great to move on to something new and different. It lets me know I will never be in the same place forever. These jobs I’m working are just to make money through college. Once I am through college and have my degree I will look for my career. I am still not sure what I want to do with a criminal justice degree, but I know I would want to work on the federal level and make some big bucks! For now, I will do some cleaning and work my way through college!
