Whoah Awesome!

Alright, so this is going to be a short, short post, but one PACKED full of excitement!

And apparently excitement=confetti.

Anyway, I am SUPER stoked today, because in a totally awesome twist, just one day after writing my post about wanting my own coffee shop someday but having no idea how to run one, my manager told me I'm going to be sent to manager training! AHHH! MORE CONFETTI!!

I am super pumped, because while I'm not going to be taking my manager's job, and I have no plans to go manage a different store, I know this is going to give me all kinds of great skills and information that will absolutely help me in the future, especially if my goal is to one day have a shop of my own.

So like I said, short post, I just wanted to share my excitement with all of you! And I'll be sure to keep you posted on how my training goes once I've started. It's a three day thing at the end of the month, so stayed tuned!

Coffee Shop Dreams

Friends...I want to have a coffee shop. One of my very own. Where I can make delicious, caffeinated beverages, and sell scrumptious pastries. Like...these!

These are some delicious pastries we ate in "France" at Epcot when we were at Disney World over spring break. And they were the bomb diggity. I want to have a coffee shop that sells pastries like those. Everyone loves pastries, right?

I don't want a real person job. I just want a coffee shop.

The problem with this is...I was a psychology major. And I have no business experience. So...I think I might have to go back to school. I don't really want to go back to school, but I think it might be the smart thing to do. I know the statistic that 97% of all small businesses fail. (Or...some number like that. I totally just made up that 97%.) But I still feel like I want to try it. Maybe I'm crazy, but hey, maybe I'll end up being super successful with it! I guess maybe we'll see. Obviously this will be a slow process. So I'll keep you all posted.

On another note, I've been toying with the idea of vlogging. I think it could be interesting. Maybe? Or maybe I'd get all embarrassed talking to myself on camera. And maybe, like this blog, I won't know what the heck I have to say that's worth talking about. And MAYBE...people will think I'm weird if they actually see my face talking. I don't know. What do you people think about that? Would this weird you out?

Maybe I'll make a goal to try it once a month or something. And if I creep people out, or I'm just really awkward...well...then I guess I'll never do it again. 

Sorry this is a short post, but I'm pretty much really tired. And I have to work in the morning. I'm seriously interested in what any of you think about this whole vlogging idea. So...I'm begging for your thoughts in the comments!
