Hellooooooooooooooo Paducah! This week starts off my first week at my new store here in Paducah, Kentucky. For the time being, I am staying at a hotel, and enjoying cable television. I just went grocery shopping today because as awesome as it may sound, eating out two of the three meals a day suuuuuuucks! Not only does it burn a hole in my wallet, but it's burning a hole in my stomach. Ugh!
I am up for a lot of hard work for my store, but I am up for the challenge. I already know I will have nights where I will cry, throw air punches, kick imaginary people, but in the end, it will all be worth it. I have an amazing support system, and I am truly blessed no matter how bad things may seem in my eyes. My career downside is that I am very hard on myself with expectations. That could be a bad thing while I get this store in order...I may have to learn to relax just a little.
One of the many amazing things about my store is that it has a Stay Fit 24! That means I have no freaking excuse to not work out because the gym is literally right next door! I get a free membership since I am a Family Video employee. Oh yes, I should mention, Stay Fit 24 is a division of the Family Video company. Selected stores have it, and it's awesome! The equipment is fabulous and it's not overcrowded. Plus, members do get perks on the video store side so it's a win/win! I'm pretty stoked about being able to workout more consistantly. You know that 100 day challenge I was doing? Yeah...got delayed. I know, I know. Why do you think I went grocery shopping today?
Outside of the apartment, it looks..well...not good! My friend Nina and I spent a good five minutes tearing it apart, but then when the manager showed us the inside the apartment you could hear the angles sing! It's an older building, and they are currently remodeling the inside then out. I decided to get a two bedroom apartment just so that I have an extra space for visitors *wink wink nudge nudge*
Okay, I need to go to bed, but I will update my adventure as it goes along. I have a lot of things that I would like to accomplish during this transition :)
