Hostess extraordinaire...

or NOT. So I found a new job, though it may only be a part time job, I've yet to figure that all out. Starting officially last Wednesday I began hostessing at Webers Downtowner, a diner downtown Barrie known for it's amazing burgers. It's a great place to work so far, though the shifts are only evenings and weekends and they are very short. Eventually I'll do serving, but I need to learn the flow of things first. I really like the people I'm working with. They're a lot of fun and really nice.
I think I'm going to have to look for another job to keep me busy during the day. I don't know where I'll look, but i can't live off of the hours I'm getting right now, so we'll see what happens. I'm just praying about it right now, trying to figure things out.
It seems like there's finally something so show for all the renovations we've been doing. It's been tough living in a cramped space, but by the end of this week I should have my room all painted and my flooring down. I'm very excited about it, and I'll get to set up my new desk and actually start unpacking all of my stuff from school last year. :P
This is just a short little post. And here is a verse to leave with you.
1 Corinthians 15:58 -Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

No more Green Tree

I am very happy to say that this past Wednesday I quit my job. :D I'm rather excited to be out of that place. I'll miss some of the people, but I don't have to stress out anymore about the work ethics there and such. On Friday I went out job hunting and actually met with some success. The manager at Webers Downtowner (a diner) sat and chatted with me and made an appointment for me to go in for a working interview. I just got back from it a short while ago and it was pretty fun. I followed the hostess around for a while and she showed me the ropes and explained everything to me. It looks like it'll be a fun place to work, so we'll have to see what happens. I'm supposed to hear back from the manager this week sometime. In the meantime my dad is keeping me busy working for him at home, so I'm not completely jobless. :P It's not easy to stand up for yourself sometimes, but I've discovered that it's worth it, no matter how tough it is. It was a load off of my shoulders telling my boss that I wouldn't be coming back in. I'm just trying to leave things in God's hands and trust Him to lead me in the right direction.

So directionless

I guess a lot has happened since my trip to Nova Scotia. That was a fun week. On the way back we stopped in New Brunswick for Rachel Langton's wedding. The wedding and reception were very enjoyable and it was great to see Rachel again. Court was in the wedding party, so we got to hang out a bit. Luke, Andrew, Court, and I all stayed at Rachel's friend's house. She was a lot of fun and it turns out that she just came to Borden for a few months, so we'll hopefully get to hang out a bit.

Right now I'm kinda lost in life, if that makes any sense. It feels like I'm living each day just to get to the next. Some things have become more clear to me in the past few weeks, but other things are so much more confusing. It's hard not knowing which direction my life should be going. I have a strong desire to work with youth, yet I don't know where or howand it just doesn't seem like things are getting any clearer. I've had to deal with some unfortunate stuff at work recently, so I'm about to quit there (it's a seasonal job anyhow) and now I'm looking for a new job. I have no idea where to look. So many jobs are minimum wage and are shift work, so it'll be tough to find anything that pays fairly well. It would be amazing to find a job in which I could work with teens and such, but I have no clue where I could even start applying. Most places require you to have a degree, or some type of schooling. Everything just seems so up in the air. All I can do it trust God to provide. It's a struggle to trust Him so completely.

Even though there is so much uncertainty I have been enjoying my life. I have been much happier over the past few weeks then I've been in a long time. I'm still struggling with my health, though I have a bunch of doctors appointments coming up with specialists and such, and I've been trying to redo the Maker's Diet and clean my system out. I was doing really well until about a week ago. I need to spend this week getting myself back on track.

I was able to spend this past weekend in Belleville with a bunch of friends. It was Matty's birthday on the 31st and Saba's is on the 7th, so we had some birthday fun. It was great to hang out with everyone. At one point there was Matty, Luke, Jay, Nicola, Saba, Court, Sean, Ruth, Nicole and myself. It was a lot of fun. On Sunday we took Saba to Kingston and hung out with Justin for a bit. Aside from being so exhausted from all the late nights, it was an awesome weekend.

I just found out that it is Victoria's birthday tomorrow (6th) so Happy Birthday Victoria!! I love you lots and hope you have a great day! :D

It is time for me to finish my resume and print it off, so good bye for now. I hope everyone had an enjoyable summer, and God bless as you go your way this fall, whether to school, work, or elsewhere. :) love you all!
