    This is a classic example of "meant to be"..... Good for you! Did you know that my hero, Cesar Millan, started out as a dog groomer? He was the guy who could manage the rowdy customers...and the rest is history. Go forth and kick bootay!

    I basically just decided I'm going to do what makes me happy. Haven't told my mom about my plans yet, not sure if it's a good idea after listening to her and her ex boyfriend who still lives with us fighting and screaming and throwing stuff around today..which ended up with me leaving the house.

    Anyways. I applied at Petco last friday just for a position to be a "pet salon assistant." Basically doing dog baths and cleaning up in the salon. I know a manager from Petco, and I went and talked to her today. She was like, "I really want you to get hired here" haha, and went and found the store manager that does the hiring and introduced me to him. He was very interested in me and asked why I wanted to work in there, and I told him my plans to become a groomer. He seemed impressed, asked about my availability. I said I was just looking for part time through december, since I was in school but after that could take on more hours. He said that was perfect because they were just looking for a part time person right now, 15 to 25 hours a week.

    he then took me over to the pet salon and introduced me to the salon manager. She seemed interested in me as well after I told her about all my experience with animals and about how I've been doing my own grooming in my house. She and the store manager went over my application some and she came back to me and said she would be willing to train me how to groom..free. So I wouldn't even have to go to school. She said how fast I learn everything is dependent on how well I learn it, lol.

    So the store manager said he's going to call me Tuesday about setting up an interview. Fingers crossed for me!!
    This is wonderful news.

    Ok now this is what you are going to do.

    If come Tuesday the manager has not called you back by say 11:00am I want you to go down and see him. If he is some what hesitant then I want you to offer him to work for free for a few days so you can show them what you have to offer. I guarantee you he will not refuse.

    If not give me his phone # I will call him and set him straight!!!

    Lauren, I'm so happy to hear you're taking control of 'your' life. While we always want to make our family happy and proud of us it's vital imo that you do what makes you happy and not necessary others. to you!!

    Thanks for the encouragement, guys!! I really hope I can get this job. It'll just be explaining it to my mom that'll be the hard part!

    @heff101 I'm out of class at 1:10 on Tuesdays..so if I haven't received a call by then I will definitely call them. I feel a bit weird asking to work for free though. Can a large corporation like Petco do that, legally? Will they think I'm creepy? LOL.

    I agree with @heff101!!! It feels a little crazy but it will show them you are a go-getter!
    You can close your eyes to things you don't want to see,
    but you can't close your heart to the things you don't want to feel.
