The Coffee Shop Diaries - I got the job

Monday, April 1, 2019

Welcome back to the Coffee Shop Diaries! :D
Last week I got so many of you reach out to me about my job and the things I see and have been dealing with. You all gave me such great advice and I truly appreciate it! This past week felt so good and I have you to thank! One: I started pulling my munchkins off to the side and y'all it's been working! It's crazy insane :) they don't behave all day, but for a good % I feel that they are growing to respect me more and more every day.

A couple of you saw my "So... I didn't get the job" post and I have now been working for three weeks! I started my coffee shop diaries talking about work, but I forgot to mention this little life update. I am still working on my state exams and hope to start my first full year of teaching come August. The exams have been kicking my butt, but I know I'll be done with it sooner than what I could imagine. I honestly thought I was going to be jobless for a long time. I never got any calls back from the places I applied to and I kept questioning why I couldn't land a job. Fortunately, I got recommended by a teacher that I would be a great fit to their campus. So far, I have grown to love my kids even if they could really get my head aching :p

2 Months ago, I never thought I'd be employed by a school, especially so late in the year. I wanted to share with you a couple things.

Don't get discouraged if you don't get a call back from a job you applied for
Apply to as many places as possible despite the job criteria, you have no idea what could happen if you do!
Know your worth! Don't let anyone take advantage of you.
Go with what makes you happy!!
Stand by what you believe in!

Sometimes things are easier said than done, but we are going to get knocked down and our number one job is to always get back up. If we don't, then we are giving up on all this world has to offer us. Sometimes we get stuck in a place we don't want to be in and that is our challenge to overcome. I do believe everything happens for a reason... Good and bad, but I also don't think we are meant to be upset with where we are in life. At that point, we either stay where we are, or figure out how to get on the path we want to want to be on.

My high of last week was
Being complimented on having amazing classroom management
My low
Falling in the mud during a photo shoot

What we ordered: French toast and waffles 
Iced mocha & Mocha Latte 
I love coming here for brunch! 
There are many locations in San Antonio to choose from! I can't say I have a favorite because every location has its perks, but I do have to say I love the downtown area so much it's nice to grab coffee, brunch, snap some photos, and head around the area to walk, go to the river center mall, tower of the Americas, or check out the events happening downtown! It's so cute and the staff members are so kind! 10/10 recommend. :)
