Oh yeah, you read that title!! I know, I'm just as stunned as you are! Not only have I been able to keep the one and only job I've ever had, I've done such a good/average job at it that they're moving me up. It may also have to do with the fact that I'm one of the few students already working for the department who has their driver's license... But regardless! I GOT A PROMOTION!!!! It's a huge pay raise, which means that I won't have to keep trying to find a second job on campus. I'll be earning in a week what I earn in a month with my current position. After all the crazy things that have been going on (you'll hear about more of those things in my next post) this was a huge blessing! I'm so excited to start training for my new job. After spending so long trying to find a job, and then landing a less than ideal first job, I feel like I've arrived in a way. This isn't what I want to do for the rest of my life, but it'll definitely help me when it comes to saving up for rent and textbooks next year like I hope to with my Resolutions.

Now that I'm leaving my old position behind I thought it would be fun to recap some my favorite and least favorite things that happened on the job!

My favorite memory while on the job is still, to this day, the old woman who came up to me at a basketball game. Literally all I'd done was move a barricade and tell them that they could park! She had on a cute rain coat and she told me that she appreciated what I was doing and that I was doing a great job. Then, she hugged me! I almost exploded from how sweet this old woman was!

My least favorite memory was Gray Jacket Man at the football games.... Regardless of the weather or the time of day, this man always had something negative to say to me. The entire purpose of my job was to keep people from parking without a pass because the passes were sold to patrons going to the football game (It would be pretty crappy of the school if they sold someone a pass and then let someone else take their space for free). Every game, Gray Jacket Man would yell about how unfair it is that his student couldn't park in the lot with him, and how he was going to "call my boss".

Surprisingly enough, whenever he did call my boss, I was told that I must be doing a good job keeping people from parking there if people are getting mad at me for it! I guess the gauge of how well you do your job is how angry you can make people... I'm totally joking!! But it does seem that way, doesn't it?

What are your best and worst memories from your job? Have any of you gotten a promotion recently?
