The Help

I just spent the last few days reading this book nonstop (I even missed part of the Laker game to finish the book). It is about three woman in the late 1950s or early 60s who live in Jackson Mississippi who work together to make a difference in racial issues. Two of the women are maids, who work for very little pay and are treated "seperate but equal" and the third woman is a white 23-yearl old whos desires are much different than the typical young southern woman; she desires to be a writer, instead of focusing on getting married. I loved the way Kathryn Stockett wrote this book and highly recommend it. I am now taking a break from reading for a few days before I start the Hunger Games!

Job Update

Here is where I work, the view doesn't get much better than this.

That is my first thought about my new job serving at Cheesecake Factory, is that I love the location, being right on the water is so nice!
10 things I have learned thus far:
1. Don't get stressed out
2. If that doesn't work don't let others see that stress is getting to you
3. I have become a GREAT multi-tasker
4. Treat everyone as though they are the most important people (hopefully it will be rewarded :) 5. Don't judge
6. Coming home with cash is awesome
7. Take responsibility for mistakes
8. Don't be sensitive, (develop TOUGH SKIN)
9. I miss my weekends spending time with my husband
10. Teamwork

I really like serving (minus the sidework ex. refilling all the salt and pepper shakers, sugar caddies, ketchups, restocking), it is such a fast paced environment and the time while I am there goes by SO fast. I enjoy being able to talk with so many different types of people, and hopefully make them happier than when they walked in the restaurant. I do however come home EXHAUSTED, and have nightmares that I forgot to ring something in right, or bring someone the wrong meal, weird I know. I am grateful though to be working. I know that it won't be forever, and am glad that I can help our little family progress.
