Since a young age, my parents have taught me the importance of work. As I think about all of the different jobs that I have had, it brings back many memories: good and bad. I thought I would share a few with you:
Assistant to my neighbor's business: (I can't remember the name of the business). After babysitting, this was my first job. At first, he gave me a computer and told me to learn some program to help run his business. It turned out that I went to his house every Monday to clean his bathrooms and organize his wife's pantry. It paid well.
Subway: Yes, I was a sandwich artist for about 2 1/2 years. My best friend Anna worked there with me and we had a blast. It was always embarrassing when someone from school would come in to get a sub. We would fight over who would make their sandwich.
Microsoft Warehouse: The summer after I graduated high school I packaged CD's, Xbox's and flyers. Pretty boring.
Flower Patch: When I moved to Provo, I got a job at a flower shop located right down the street from my apartment. It was convenient because I could walk (since I didn't have a car). Plus, it was close to Blake's bus stop. He would occasionally drop in to say "hi."
Rite Aid: My least favorite job ever. I worked here the summer before I got married. Longest summer of my life. Cashiering and stocking medicine was not exactly what I would call fun.
Call Centers: Right after I got married I worked in 2 different call centers. The first one lasted a day. The second one, maybe a week? I was desperate for a job the second time around.
CNA at a care center: I worked there about 2 months. This was a very tiring but rewarding job. I quit because my hours were horrible. I never saw Blake.
The RedX: I worked here doing customer service for over 2 years. It was a great learning experience and I got to learn more than enough about the real estate business.
Currently I am a Mom: By far my favorite job.
So what about you? What jobs have you had?
