    Default I wanted to share some positive news..

    I figured I'd share some positive news with you guys.

    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!!
