New Job Blues

I started working part-time at a retail store a couple of weeks ago.  It’s going well, but once in a while, I feel negativity creeping in about my performance at work.  I am doing well for a beginner, but it’s hard to remember I am a beginner again.  I’m learning their work method and trying to apply my own techniques when I can.  I had a rough night a few days ago, but I think tonight will be better.  I need to remember people correct my actions because they care and notice I am doing what I can, not because they think I am bad at what I do.

Also, I found some new band members, and we have a show scheduled at the end of July.  The guys playing with me said they want to focus on having fun playing music first, which is what I want to do.  It looks like we might work.  They’re open to having subs and experimenting with new songs and techniques, so I think it has the potential to be great.  Now, time to start booking other gigs.

Bills & New Jobs (Honest Spending)

Nothing like balancing your checkbook and paying bills to curb your spending.  I spent more money going out with friends than I should have.  I think watching the numbers dwindle in my checkbook will help me stop myself from buying unnecessary things and from eating out or drinking too much at bars.

I am supposed to receive a phone call or email about my new job soon.  It’s a temporary retail position, but I need it to pay bills.  I was told I received the position at the interview, and I’m waiting for them to finish processing my paperwork.

I am also working on a cover letter to send to a person at a local ad agency.  My mother and her coworker know a person there, and they said they would send my information to her.  I went there last year, but I think my continued work on my resume and skills and experience acquired last year will boost me into the “hire” category instead of the “save for later” area.
