24 Sep

I had an interview for a barista position at Think Coffee, an eco-friendly coffee bar in Greenwich Village. I walked in and could just tell that this place was much better suited for me. It was a bustling coffee bar with sandwiches, pastries, juice. The girl at the counter was so nice when I told her I was there for an interview. She asked me if I wanted to sip on something while I waited. I got an iced coffee. When I got out my wallet, she shrugged and said, “Put that away, girl. Don’t you worry ’bout it.” I sat at a comfortable booth amid people typing on laptops and reading books. I glanced at all the art on the walls. I could see myself there. I met with the two owners, Lacey and Sean. They were so nice, and it was one of those interviews where you are actually kind of just having a conversation about who you are and what you want.  Lacey told me I had a “sweet vibe that really flows” with what they were trying to do. We shook hands, and I left. I wanted the job so bad! I could really see myself being happy there. I walked around the village and found myself also just wanting the job so I could spend more time in this awesome neighborhood. Art vendors, musicians, bookstores, awesome bars, little restaurants.

Later that night, almost right after Travis had come home, my phone rang. I sprinted over to it, but I missed the call. My phone buzzed with a message. I stood in my apartment, Travis had his arms around me as I listened to the message. I got the job!! “Hello Chrissy Wilson. We would love to have you as a part of our little coffee family, and we hope this is good news for you, because we are excited to have you on board.” I immediately called back and finalized the details. Then I did a happy dance all over the apartment. I know it’ll be a while before I can find my “dream job.” But I am happy that I can work at a good place until then.

    P.S. I want to hear the quitting story for the other one. I just know it’ll be a fantastic one.
