Though, I'm only a seasonal at the moment. So this work period only lasts until the end of January. Yesterday was orientation (counted as my official first day, so I'm getting paid for it), and my next workday will be this upcoming Saturday, which will be another training day. I'm assuming that's when I'll learn to use the cash register and whatnot. I'm excited, but at the same time I'm worried, like, "what if this is how my schedule will end up being like for the rest of the time?" 4 hours a day, 1 day per week? That's basically me getting less than what I've been getting from Opi for allowance ($40)
So, I'm hoping and praying that I'll be able to get more hours. I'm hoping at -least- 18 hours a week. I'll be praising God if I manage to get a 25-30 hour week, hnnnnghhhhh
In regards to the tea party, the Mandalay Room was eventually taken, but luckily I was able to book the Willow Room. So now the seat cap is down to 16, which honestly I'm more glad about because that's less stress on my part. The room itself is cute, the walls are a bit light and cutesy but the room has a dimmer so I'm going to keep the room dark, with the exception of the little chandelier and the candles that will be set up. At the moment I have a -lot- of ideas about switching in-switching out things, all of which are pretty good, so by the end of the week I'll see what I'll definitely decide on doing.
I'm really excited for it though. I brought Susan and Noelle with me to the place the other day when I paid the deposit for the room, and before we even entered the front door they were just like "-woah-". Noelle was groping the furniture in the parlor and stuff xD So I'm glad they really liked the look of the place. In about a week or two I'm gonna go over the menu and stuff with the owner and finalize things. But next week? I'm gonna have to do a hell of a lot of shopping for the table decorations. Not so much buying as traveling, it'll be really exhausting xD But I'll be fine. Thanks Laura and Susan and Lexi? and whoever else said they'd be willing to help out. I'll see if I'll need any helpers soon.
Thanks to Samantha Rei for making fascinators for the raffle/stuff we're gonna be doing <3 I'm just waiting to see if Megan B would be making something too, and then I'll put the official update post. I know it's beginning to be kinda-sorta last minute, but I'd rather work out the last of the details before I make any sort of update.
I have a good feeling about this winter though, overall :3 I can't wait till Thanksgiving.
