I don’t normally post about what’s going on in my personal life. Mainly because I’m afraid it will bore you. ;) A lot has been going on lately though, and I’ve been learning a lot of stuff. So here are some things I’ve been doing outside the ramblings here.
It is such a blessing to be able to have jobs to work. My car, the Matador, got painted last week. It is so exciting to finally be in the homestretch. After hundreds of labor hours put into this car to get it to this point- the fruits of the labor are finally becoming visible. I’ll start putting doors, bumpers, and windows back together this week, and it will be finished very soon! I don’t have pics, mainly because I want to be sure and document everything in a chronological manner here. As soon as it is finished, I’ll be going through a couple thousand pics and finish posting the entire process for you all to see. Can you tell I’m excited about that? ;)
The Car is not the only place which is thriving, the custom saber business I started a few years ago has grown so much I’ve been able to offer services which I want to do, and nothing more. There is a Kickstarter run of affordable sabers in the works, and I’ve got part time work until January of next year. Who would of thought glorified flashlights would be so popular?
Being a manager and Marketing Director at chick-fil-a has yielded a lot of learning experiences. I’ve learned how to add sales to your business, how to delegate tasks (instead of doing it all myself), how to respond to angry customers, and more. I’ve got a lot to improve on, and have a bunch more to learn. It is great going everyday and being challenged in a work environment which encourages everyone to grow.
Perhaps the biggest change however, is the fact I’m now living by myself, as the family has moved to a really cool farmhouse and beginning some dreams they’ve had for a long time. It is weird, a place being so quiet- absent of talking, laughing, or just moving around. On the one hand, I do miss hanging out with the family when I would be home, a lot sometimes. (I’m being honest mom- if you read this. ;) ). It is cool though, to finally be in a place where I’m learning lessons of budgeting and attempting to manage a house- even if I am the only one living there.
So there you have it, a small glimpse into what I am being taught and what’s going on in life. Do you have any recently learned lessons that you’d like to share? If so, leave them below and I’d enjoy reading them. :)
