I got a new part-time job!
It's in another department of the university I already work for. The afternoon shift. Perfect because I can work the new job and literally take one floor down to my night-shift at the second job (I'm allowed to work in two different departments).
The best part is, because both jobs total 40 hours, I'll now qualify for benefits!
And of course, I can finally say goodbye to the crafts store once and for all…sort of.
I gave my two-weeks notice last Friday but the store manager asked if I'd work just on Sundays to complete the time edits for payroll.
The university jobs are both Monday-Friday so it wouldn't conflict with anything and I think the store manager likes the idea of me being around so I can train my replacement and help troubleshoot should they run into problems.
As much as that job frustrates me, I've worked at the crafts store for almost five years. It's hard to let it go and all the people I've come to know along the way.
So in two weeks I'll be working three jobs. I've done it before--I know I can do it again.
