Yesterday was my last shift at Starbucks here in Liverpool :(!!
Thankfully I managed to transfer my contract to another store in Ipswich which means I get to stay with the company (I just couldn’t let go of all that free coffee!!) and managed to negotiate a 4 hour contract to start with.
I’ve mentioned a few times the amount of Uni work I’ve got going on at the moment and over the next 6 weeks. Well after that it doesn’t let up for a little longer; I have exams over April and May which will mean 2 things…1. I need LOTS of time to study for them (there is some serious biochemistry involved!) and 2. I will have to make the 9hr round trip in my car 3 times over those 2 months! So as I’m not going to have much free time, not being committed to lots of hours suits me perfectly. After my exams, hopefully I’ll be able to get lots more hours and start earning some more money!!
We made the decision to move to Ipswich so that James could join his 2 brother’s in a business they started a couple of years ago. It’s an IT/techie business (I don’t really understand!!!) but they were starting to run short on man power and needed someone to join them, to develop the business and grow it to the ‘next level’.. James is really great at building relationships with people and so is perfect for the job!! What this means though, is that with him on a new business venture and me about to start my final year of study, money is very tight 😦 so I’ll need as many hours as I can possibly get from June onwards!!
I have to say I felt slightly emotional when I left work yesterday, I think mainly because it’s been such an important part of my recovery and the girls I’ve worked with have been so supportive, so it really did feel like the end of an era!!
I’m moving on though to the next stage in my life which I’m ready for :).
Breakfast today (whilst looking out the window at the SNOW – in March…really!!) included avocado that I managed to grab in the reduced section yesterday and toast…
and lots of coffee of course!
Now I’m off to do some more packing!
Questions; have you got any nice plans for the weekend? How do you multitask when you have lots of different things going on in your life at the same time?
