Some free time at last!

I am happy to say that I finally have some free time on my hands. Why you ask? Well, it's because I quit my part-time job at the knit shop. There were a couple of reasons behind my decision. For one, I realized that after spending so much time on campus, any substantial amount of free time I had I was spending at work. That didn't leave much time for homework and definitely not a social life. It was a task just trying to find time to do laundry. While it was nice to have the extra money for groceries, etc, I realized that it wasn't worth it to forgo my sanity. It's one thing to sacrifice that time for a job that was going to advance my fashion career but in the long run, serving coffee and restocking yarn was not going to add any value to my fashion resume.

Don't get me wrong, it was fun interacting with all the different people and helping them with their projects. I actually enjoyed that part of it. But I could be using that time to work on my own school projects or schedule appointments. Then add the fact that they were starting to cut my hours at random, at the last minute (like 2 hours before my shift) and it made the decision much easier.

Now that my weekends are free, guess where I'll be October 20 & 21......RHINEBECK!!! Shemeka and Chante are graciously letting me tag along.
