That's right! I am officially a Starbucks Barista. I'm learning a lot. I even made drinks for customers today! Finally. I am working at Starbucks.
I am truly happy about my job. I love learning how to make good coffee. I love making people's day with coffee. It's definitely nice to have extra spending money.
The only thing I am struggling with is the amount of hours. Now I realize most of you guys who read my blog have fulltime jobs. That's amazing. I applaud you for that. I just can't do it. It's just really a challenge for me to work 30 hours a week. I am working 1-8pm shifts. It works out great for my workout schedule. It doesn't work out so great for seeing Hubs. He usually leaves around 4:30 am and doesn't return until after 6:00pm. Because he has to get up so early, he goes to bed around 8:30pm...the time I get home from work. It would be fine if it was only 2 or 3 days a week, but it's every day. I now struggle to find time to finish my final online class, do grocery shopping, and run errands. The poor puppy has to be locked up for the majority of the day now.
I just started so I don't really want to complain either. I'm just going to have get used to this whole working thing. I'm hoping to talk with my supervisor next week about scheduling me for fewer hours. I'm a total people pleaser and hate confrontation of any way shape or form, so this conversation is already making me nervous. Please pray that I have the right words to say and that my supervisor is sympathetic and understanding. When I agreed to the job, I was under the impression that part time meant 15-20 hours a week, not 30-35. I just hope she understands.
