So I got a job. Sunday night I glanced at a job website and found an opening for a photographer at a children's photography studio. So on Monday morning I called and left a message letting them know I was interested. The manager called that evening and I went in for an interview. They liked me, and I got hired! So now I'm in training. I've learned a lot. I'm really excited because learning all of this is really going to help my skills as a photographer. But one of the things that I like best about this job is that it's only a seasonal job (everybody wants Easter portraits), so once Easter is over, then I'm done. I love that. So I'll be working there long enough to gain some knowledge, and once Easter is over, I walk away with a lot more photography knowledge. It's pretty awesome. It's like taking a class and getting paid to take it. There are a couple of downsides to this job...it's in the mall. I know you guys are probably like, "The mall? What's the big deal?" Do you have any idea how difficult it is to work in a mall and NOT spend money??? It is. Let me tell you. I am seriously going to have to work on my self control when it comes to spending my money at the mall...I'm really good at that (spending money, that is). The other downside is that I will probably have to work some late nights, which will be hard especially since Joel and I spend our evenings together. But it's only for about a month so I guess it'll be fine. Yay for fun jobs!!
