Sunday, July 7, 2013: I moved to Florida.
Yep, you read that right. Currently, I’m living in Navarre, FL with my sister Jennifer, her 2 kids (Zack and Alyssa), her fiancée (Chris), and her fiancée’s parents (Steve and Suzie).
Monday (the 8th) and Tuesday (the 9th) were my job-hunting days. We went all over Navarre and picked up applications, then we went to the Santa Rosa mall and picked up some applications there as well. However, I was still looking on Craigslist for a job (just in case I’d missed a place that was hiring). I saw that there was a housekeeping position available at the Hampton Inn, but I noticed that it had been posted over a month ago. I gave them a call to see if the position was still open. The receptionist said “Of course! Just come on in, fill out an application and we’ll interview you today so you can start as soon as possible.” So I got dressed and ready, then headed over to the hotel.
I filled out the application, then waited for a lady named Darla to come interview me. Turns out, she’s from Texas too! (Maybe I won’t be made fun of for saying y’all! Lol) She was really nice and very funny. Long story short, I got the job! I went and had my drug test done, then went home to fill out the rest of my paperwork. As soon as it’s turned in by Friday, I’ll be able to start on Friday or Saturday. I’m so excited! The shifts are 8-12 hrs, and it’s very easy to earn overtime. Today, I get to turn all my paperwork back in, get my uniform (light blue “Hampton Inn” polo, khakis, and tennis shoes), and find out when my first day will be.
Anyways, enough about the job. Since I’ve been here, it’s either been REALLY hot or REALLY rainy. My room is flooded with bright sunlight at 6am, then goes completely dark before 9pm. Florida is very different, compared to Texas. But…I like it! 🙂 Jennifer said that this weekend (if it’s not raining), we should go to the beach. Gotta say, when I came here in June, the water felt wonderful! It’s so beautiful here! I’ll try to upload some pics later. Gonna go turn in all my paperwork now. I’ll blog more later.
Peace. Love. Cheryl.
