friday was my first day of work at the new place. it didn’t bother me at all to get up at 5:30 in the morning [AND hadn’t gone to bed until after midnight because of being talked into seeing a late night showing of cloverfield…] and drive to work in the 11 degree weather. i already feel like a different person and it’s only just started. several people i know came in yesterday and it was so encouraging to see and serve them. i hope to see more of you soon!

obviously i am not a barista yet, but just being at work felt amazing and i find myself really thinking about where this could take me. what if i really could work for a place like intelligentsia in chicago? that would be so amazing. [and at the same time, what if things take off here in nashville and i can get more involved at crema?] i’ve been reading a lot of coffee publications and everyone who becomes anyone special in the industry started off slinging coffee behind the counter, so i know i am in good company. i am so eager to learn.

    ha. i still don’t know what i think about the movie. it was definitely entertaining and engaging because of the way it was shot, but i am not sure if i liked it or not šŸ™‚
