First day of work went well.  Detailing cars in the hot sun is hard work… but I don’t mind earning my money.  I think this job will work out well for me…  Oh… and my manager also wants to train me in sales as well because he feels like I am good with people.  This will get me commission pay as well.

Most of my co-workers are Hispanic, so I hear a lot of Spanish.  I was proud of myself that I was able to understand and respond to one of my co-workers when he started talking to me in Spanish.  Those Spanish classes in high school and college paid off.

Not that it matters too much, but I am the only white dude working there. #tokenwhiteguy :-p

If you are going through hard times…

I have been through a lot of painful situations throughout my life.  Some of which are still happening.  But God continues to sustain me. provide for me, and comfort me.  I have looked into many different views of the world in search for truth.  I have found that Jesus Christ is real.  Trust in God and His sacrifice on the cross.  I am not saying God will make it so you are always happy and never sad.  But He will bring you through the sad times.  No matter how I feel at the moment, God gives me reasons and a purpose for living.  Much love to anybody who reads this.

"If you’re not a happy single person, you won’t be a happy married person. Another human being can’t fulfill your happiness. Only God can do that. Stop looking to boyfriends or girlfriends to make you happy. It starts with a relationship between you and God first."

— Jackie Francois (via itsallaboutchrist)

I only partially agree with this.  I agree that one’s relationship with God is the most important.  But God also said in Genesis, “It is not good for the man to be alone.”  God created Adam and then let Adam discover his need for a helper (after seeing that God created the animals male and female).  We desire male-female companionship by God’s design.  There are exceptions to the rule, of course (like the Apostle Paul stayed single… but even then, some people speculate that his lack of wife was his thorn in his flesh), but this the norm and this is good.  There is nothing wrong with feeling sad and lonely because you haven’t found the right person yet.  Adam felt it before God created Eve (and this was before sin entered the world).  So do not let anybody make you feel guilty for feeling sad and lonely.  But at the same time, make sure you are right with God because that takes priority.

"But I… will hold on hope
And I… won’t let you chokes
On the noose around your neck
And I’ll… find strength in pain
and I… will change my ways
I’ll know my name as it’s called again"

I got the job!

I start training tomorrow.  I will be working enough hours and making enough money where I won’t need (and couldn’t handle) a second job, so I am quitting Subway.  There are a few co-workers at Subway that I have come to care about very much, so it will be sad that I will no longer be working with them, but I will definitely keep up with them.  Hopefully we can hang out sometimes.  Austin, Mckenzie, Erica, Janiece, and Emanuel… You guys are so much fun, and I would take a bullet for any of you.
