Day to Day

Depending on the day, sometimes my site can be calm or can be going crazy. But I will put my bag down put my apron on and wash my hands while looking at the daily assignment set for me. IF its an easy day I can take my time getting settled, and into a grove and make sure everything is ready for me for the night. IF the store is going nuts, I am rushed to get where I am needed, and will often move and shift around the store doing everything I can to just get us caught up, and settled down.

Skills & Qualities Beyond School

Learning How to deal with Customers, and their attitudes is hard, and I found that I learned a lot on how to deal with the worst customers by reading books on psychology, and the human emotions, and how to deal with each one. Being able to stay calm is a must, and learning to put that fake face on for them to make them happy and just get them to move on is hard but when dealing with customers who are hungry, impatient, and angry, it helps the most. You can always vent later.

The Noise I Shed

From Society in General:

"I haven't ever really been told that I wouldn't be able to do something in life. I have been told I need to have more self confidence and I should go after what I know that I can do and what I am good at. My self confidence has held me back a lot."

Find a way that works for you that you can do continuously that will help you boost your self confidence. You will have to try a bunch of different ways to find the one that is best for you. Talk to your friends and family, they can help boost you as well by giving you the compliments you need and help you find that one perfect way for you to do it for yourself. I started with the post it notes and ended up writing myself a letter at one of my lowest points and having my calendar show it to me.
