Day 9: Why I would work for Starbucks September 28, 2009

Ok so we all know I am working a part time job at Disney.  But I am really poor and I am trying to find another part time job.

One of the first places I applied to was to the two Starbucks shops by my apartment. I have always wanted to work for Starbucks and I wasn’t sure why. It was just one of those urges you get when you really want to do something.

Well, I was sitting in Starbucks today, reading a book and drinking my grande non fat caramel macchiato, and it occured to me why I wanted to work for Starbucks. There are many reasons why a person would want to work for Starbucks. If you are part time they give you all these cool benefits like health care and tuition reimbursement. But that doesn’t appeal to me. I mean it does, but that’s not what was drawing me to this company or shop.

Coffee brings people together. Coffee makes your day better. Almost every time you walk into Starbucks or drive thru, the barista is friendly. I have run into some really grumpy baristas, but that is besides the point. If you go into the same Starbucks enough times they learn your name, what you do, and exactly how you want your coffee, latte, mocha, frap, whatever. Baristas at Starbucks are great! They usually have a lot of fun and are easy to relate to. Occasionally you run into some Starbucks shops that just have unhappy employees, but that’s something that needs to be taken up with a manager. Coffee with a smile makes people feel better. Besides, for coffee lovers, just being able to get your coffee or beverage is an amazing part of your day. You might really need a coffee pick me up.

So that’s why I would work for Starbucks. I have applied and I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to be part of a Starbucks team but like the rest of the world, they really aren’t hiring. I really wish they were though.

 

Vacations and Happenings July 15, 2009

There is no excuse for not writing in here more. I like to save this until I have something thought provoking and/or major Jonas related and neither has really been going on in my life currently. I have been keeping myself busy picking up shifts at work because I need the cash. I have been planning a Disney vacation for my two friends and I. I have been meeting with old friends, seeing great bands *Enter the Haggis*, and getting ready for the vacation I am on right now. I am trying to forget that the Jonas Brothers are touring about 4hrs away from me right at this moment and will be in PA soon and very close to me because I can’t afford to go.

So right now I am on vacation and I am trying to relax a lot. I am trying to do this because I think in doing this I am going to find out exactly what I will need to do in the months to come. I think this week I have finally made my decision and I am excited and scared. I was recently accepted as a seasonal cast member for WDW and I am Thrilled beyond belief, but I need more. I am planning to move down to Florida and I am fully prepared to do whatever it takes to become full time and try to get a position with that company in management or videography. I am ready to fight for it because I have decided there is no other place in the world that I want to work other than Disney.

So I have a lot of planning to do. I think that is what August will be for. I will be making two trips to Disney in August. One for vacation and one for Business. So is you are reading this, keep both trips in your prayers as I would love them to be safe trips and the business trip to be successful.
