I GOT A JOB I GOT A JOB I GOT A JOB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AT PAPER FACTORY!!!!!!!!! *dances and spazzes and bounces all over* I am SO freaking happy right now, I'm so excited. They're really really nice there, and--- omfg YAY. ^___________________^

So I stopped by Friday to ask if they'd be hiring soon, having applied there like a week or two before, Ann (one of the owners) took down my name and then called me yesterday. Went in for an interview like an hour ago, with my cute new pants on hee. <3 So comfy. Anyway. So I go in and she sits me down at the table in the wedding room (they have EVERYTHING in this one little store it's amazing) and comes back with my resume, and says she was so busy the other day when I was in that she didn't realise who I was, and asked how Dad's doing. *giggles* It was so funny, I was introduced to like four people and they all instantly asked how Dad was, everyone remembers him. Which's good, cos he made friends with like every one of his accounts when he was a sales rep. I think me mentioning that I'd worked with him at Michael's and things a few times definitely worked in my favor.
But yeah, so, like, even though I've never worked retail really, I do have positive people interaction skills (inasmuch as I told them I've worked at after-school programs and daycares and things, 'least that's something), and they said being friendly and helpful with the customers goes so far with them, that really matters more than anything. Which's good, cos I can do that. :) Everyone there is so friendly and it's really comfortable and positive there. AND!!! Turns out they could use someone to help sorting out colors and matting options with people in the framing department, which gets very busy for them, and my art background would work well with that. AND!!!!! They JUST got in a computer system for making banners and things, but only one person knows how to use it right now, so they could really use someone else to fill in for him sometimes and things, and, hi, computer graphics were my freaking MAJOR. *dances!*

They hired me on the freaking spot.
^__________________________________________^

I start next week, Tues-Fri, 10-4, light hours at first so they can see how I work (I'm not worried) and to train me on register and blowing up balloons and whatnot. I'm so psyched. It takes like 15-20 minutes for me to get there on bike, though that was riding at a pretty calm pace (not what I usually do). I do have a massive intersection to cross, unfortunately, one of the ones where people turn a lot so there's never too much of a lull in traffic, but it wasn't really bad at quarter to eleven this morning, I think it's just late afternoon that it's a problem. And the bus goes right near there - doesn't usually stop there, but the morning bus driver usually will if you ask nicely (and I'm friends with most of the drivers anyway), and either which way I can get let off right nearby, the bus goes through that intersection.

I bought a Frosty from Wendy's on the way home in celebration. *dances* I am so happy right now.
