First of all, I just had to let you know that Hanna figured out that the clouds from my last post were Undulatus Asperatus. I got really excited about it and I wanted to share in case anyone else was interested! Thanks so much, Hanna!

Today was my last day of school. We had already had the last day of classes but I’ve been going in and proctoring finals all week. Today was really melancholy for me even though it was nothing special or out of the ordinary. This permanent substitute job has been my job for two years and I’ve loved it so much. I met so many great people and got such great experience. It was also my first job using my degree after college so it was really special to me. I’m sure I’ll have a lot of other great adventures, but that place will always be really special to me.

A bit of “oh crap real life” hit me last night when I realized the paychecks would stop coming. Even though I could still tutor and do some side jobs for my father, I decided to get myself a retail job for the meantime while Josh and I wait things out. I applied online at Petco, a pet store chain here. Twenty minutes after I submitted my application, the store called me to schedule an interview. I have an interview tomorrow morning. I feel like I shouldn’t jinx it yet, but wow… that was easy. Still, wish me luck for tomorrow just in case.

Aww. (by caitysparkles)

I know Moko will be an even more spoiled cat if I work at Petco! That’s for sure.

  • Ah, I would love to work at PetCo… well, sort of. I am not sure I would be able to handle the reptiles very well :S

  • I worked at PetSmart for a little bit in the grooming section. I had the glorious job of washing dogs. I did other stuff like drying them, clipping nails, etc. It was fun. I enjoyed being around cute puppies and dogs all day.

  • Awww, adorable sleeping kitty. Good luck for your interview tomorrow, but I’m sure you’ll do fine :)

  • I love you and it is West Hollow that brought us together <3

  • Good luck on your interview tomorrow, though I doubt you’ll need it!

    I’m crossing my fingers for you!!

  • Oh Undulatus asperatus! What a mouthful, haha. But hey, I learned something today too!

    I’m glad that your job is going to be one that stays in your heart. But we all must move on and life takes its natural course. It’s good you hopped right in and tried to look for a job right away. It’s a pretty quick response, and it sounds like it’s going to be good news, but I won’t get your hopes up. Best of luck! *hugs*

  • Aww, it’s definitely hard to leave behind people that you’ve been working with for 2 years, especially harder when you’re moving to another country.

    Good luck with the job at Petco. I think you’ll be fine. :)

  • Congrats on finishing up your classes, and good luck with your interview tomorrow! (:

  • Hey Caity! I moved back to my domain so if you haven’t already linked me could you link back to Thanks in advanced!

    Also I hope you nail that interview tomorrow! Good luck, and if you be yourself I’m sure you’ll get the job. I applied at Petsmart here where I lived when I could work, but never got an interview :(. Oh well. I’m on disability now so meh. Half of my next month’s check is almost all gone. My dad’s girlfriend bought me and my dad two tickets to see Meatloaf in Indio CA. on September 4th which was a whopping 178.00. Can you believe that? But anyway, if it hadn’t been for her, I wouldn’t have gotten those tickets! And than in July my best friend is coming down and we’re going to Disneyland! Exciting no?

    But anyways, I do hope you get the job and stuff. I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed.

  • good luck! my friend Andrew works at a pet store and he seems to like it quite a bit.

  • Those clouds are so mysterious looking yet beautiful! Thank you for commenting on my site and I’m sorry I don’t always get back to comment you! Good luck with your interview! I’d love to work at a PetCo or Petsmart! Hope you are having a good day =)

  • Good luck with the interview!!

  • I would love to work at Petco or Petsmart. Alas when I applied years ago they were unable to come close to matching my current salary so I had to decline. Boo. :(

  • Very interesting cloud information.

    Hope the interview goes well!

  • Good luck! Can’t wait to hear how it went :)

  • Your kitten is so cute!

    And those clouds are amazing! Wow!

    Anyway thats awesome that they called you back so fast O.o I hope that you get it hun!

  • Wow, those are some fascinating clouds in your last entry. I’ve never seen anything like that either. Undulatus Asperatus – I’ll have to remember that!

    Good luck with your job interview tomorrow (today?)! That does seem like a very quick response to your application, I must say. Will be sending good luck vibes your way! :)

  • Best of luck with the job interview. I would love to work at PetCo. :)

    Congrats on the last day of school. Did you do anything to celebrate?

    Finally, those clouds in your last post are very pretty.

  • It’s akways hard to say goodbye to an environment you’ve been in for so long. Especially since it’s a first “real” job!

    Did you get the job at Petco?

  • Give Miko a hug for me.

    I already know from your more recent post the Petco thing did not work out, but only because something better’s around the corner!
