Yeah, I feel accomplished !
I have done a lot in the last few days.
Today, especially, was a good day; I learned a lot of new stuff:
- It’s incredible how much brain power it takes to be a cashier//bagger
- Never underestimate the power of coupons
- It’s always a humbling experience being a newbie
- All the jazzical things that come with learning a new job
- I forgot how amazing paper bags are–almost vintage 🙂
It’s all pretty much a learning process for the next five days of work.
I’m glad that I’ll get tomorrow off, so that I can go to Encounter to worship my Lord with college-kids though.
I was hit with the realization of how different this job will be from H&R Block because…
1. I have many more co-workers
2. I have more scheduled and punctual need
3. I may be more of a light for Christ at this job…
and to tell you the truth, I’m sorta nervous about that point…
I know that I naturally am proud of my Saviour, but I don’t want to proclaim it so that people are turned off and ignore me.
I think that if I just keep living with an attitude of love, then I’ll be a light in my own way–but when it comes down to it, when people find out that I am a disciple of Christ, I pray that they won’t shut down.
My trainer is a wonderful young woman, whom I will fully enjoy getting to know.
She might be one of the first people to know that I’m a disciple, but then again, maybe people will only see the difference and ask me, and not just ‘hear the gossip’.
Well, either/or, I’m going to be under a lot of mind escapes these next few months, with being trained as a cashier and pharmacy technician.
I think I did great today, but my trainer is so great at being constructive in her advice. It’s really a great opportunity that I have, to learn another skill and be in even more of a spot to be a witness for Christ.
I’m being swallowed even more into the sea of life…growing up has its pros and cons…
