Starting My New Job

by Patricia on May 25, 2016

in Career Paths

I have just finished a week at my new job at Nordstrom! I really like it. This is my first step towards my career! After I graduate, I hope to complete the retail management internship and have a job. I work in the dress department, and I have helped a lot of mother/groom of the bride choose dresses. There are lots of things to remember about the register and following up with customers. I also have to organize racks and put things in the right order. The time goes by so fast! I usually get an hour for lunch and I get to shop at the other stores at West County Mall. My paycheck is commission based, the average wage for a sales person at Nordstrom is $16/hour, but since I just started, I’m only earning $11/hour. I hope to get up there this summer!

Besides working at Nordstrom, I have lots of vacation plans as usual and other fun things to do (baking of course) so stay tuned!

As I have mentioned before, I do a lot of traveling in the summer. Between June 3-10 I will be going to Florida. We are renting a house on St.George island. The house has a pool and a room to sleep outside at night. I really enjoy the beach. I could spend all day riding waves on the boogie board. I also enjoy shopping for souvenirs. This time will be different because we will bring our dog Champ! He loves the outdoors and running outside.

Sometime in July, we might visit our aunt and cousin in Chicago! Last year, my brothers and I took the train by ourselves. We planned on seeing our other cousin in Wisconsin but couldn’t because my mom had an asthma attack. We will try again this year. I look forward to riding the water taxi again!

And of course I am starting my new job at Nordstrom as a sales associate in the dress department.

Have a great summer!

I just finished my last exam of the semester! I thought this would be a great opportunity to blog a little about summer and what I plan to do.

I actually have a very long list of things I want to do this summer. It doubles as a to-do list and a bucket list. I’ve been adding to it probably since Spring Break. I am going to jam-pack these upcoming months with activities.

Probably the two biggest summer goals: work on art and get an internship. A lot of art students will agree–part of the struggle is applying non-stop for internships. This past year I’ve been applying like crazy and I will continue to do so until I get something! At least, that’s the plan. In the meantime, I plan to spend most of the summer creating. Aside from pieces for the senior thesis show, I have some projects of my own that I can finally work on, as well as some more crafty enterprises I want to do with my family (tie-dye and silkscreening for example). I also want to make a zine! A zine is a handy magazine that you make yourself. It’s super easy and I hope to blog about the process (so you, too, can make one!)

My friend and I are also brainstorming ideas for a podcast. That, in itself, is a rather large project.

Lastly, my sister and I are hosting a small film festival in our own backyard! Our projector arrived in the mail a few weeks ago and now we just need to have a test-run. My sister studied film in college and I’ve always been a movie buff. This is a small dream of ours and it will be fantastic to see it become a reality.

So those are some of the things I am looking forward to!

Good luck to those of you who still have exams and congrats to those who are done. Summer will be here in no time 😉

I am ready for this semester to be over. This time I had 3 group projects and 2 papers to write. On top of all that I have to study for 3 exams! Fortunately I do not have class this Friday and I am completely finished by next Friday. There is a raffle on Monday and I think that I have a good chance of winning. It is based on the number of seminars that I completed. I figured that most people would blow it off, since you have to commit to it every week. If I win, I will get $500. I deliberately did not make plans for this money because if I don’t win, I’ll just be more disappointed.

Then I have a week off to have fun! On May 12 is when I start my job at Nordstrom. I am going to be a sales associate. I hope that I can do well. I will be making $10 an hour plus commission! That is a lot of money for me since I used to work at McDonalds and get paid $8.75 an hour. I plan on saving a lot of the money that I make this summer and not spending it all.

If I lived in the south…

by Patricia July 31, 2015

If I lived in the south by the ocean, I would definitely be a surfer. Every time we go to Florida, I spend most of the time surfing. I really like the waves, and I could do it all day long. If I lived in the south I would also go scuba diving and I […]

Visiting My Grandma

by Patricia July 15, 2015

Next week I’m going to visit my grandma. She is 91 years old and lives in Indianapolis. She lives in an assistant living facility. She has lots of friends but unfortunately has a very small room. When the 5 of us visit her, it’s pretty crowded, but it’s kind of fun. She always has things […]
