Over the past few weeks that I've been in Oregon, I have been evaluating my hopes and expectations regarding my employment and what I was realizing was that I held some pretty off ideas. I had begun to see how much of the reason I was chasing after office jobs was because I wanted a higher pay, just so I could afford to move out on my own, have nice things, maybe buy a new car... and I realized that I was pursuing things that were not going to fulfill me or satisfy me...it was all just stuff. I also realized that I was trying to get an office admin job not so much because I love that type of work as much as I thought it was the most responsible thing to do. After realizing these things, I decided to expand my search horizons and that's kind of what led me to apply for a serving position. I see great potential for meeting some more people near my age and really being able to have an impact and ministry at work and I'm excited by that!

That's right, I got a job! So today I decided that I would stop in to Famous Dave's and fill out an application because I knew they were hiring. I have never worked in the restaurant business before, so it was a bit of a gamble but I decided to go for it. I talked to the managers a bit, told them that I have no experience, but told them I was confident that I had the right personality for the job and that I could learn to serve. Well, the took me at my word and I am pretty excited to share that today I got a serving job at Famous Dave's BBQ! I am pretty blown away by it considering I have never worked in a restaurant, but I am definitely looking forward to learning the business and think this is going to be a great fit for me. Also, I can't lie, I really love BBQ, so this is exciting!
