So today I think I will talk about my work. First off I LOVE MY JOB. It’s amazing. But today I just liked it less. So I was being pissy and whiny and decided I needed to be a little more grateful. The best way for me to do that is to write a list of all the things I love about my job so here it goes:
The job: I have a job. How many people CANT say that now and days?
The scenery: it’s so beautiful where I work up the Provo canyon. The mountains, the trees, the fresh air. And don't tell anyone I said this but I might even like looking at the snow.
The bosses: My bosses are AMAZING. Just today I’ve been goofing around with them. One boss gave me a macaroon which look weird but are delicious. Another just BSed with me about school and work and jazz. Another slipped me a delicious piece of steak he was cutting up to serve to the guests while I was working on prep. Then another boss is constantly showing his appreciation for me, even when he can't guarantee me the job I want. They are just so laid back and awesome.
My co-workers: I try not to play favorites but I have two them that I just love. They’re freaking hilarious. I look at my schedule for each week, searching to see if I get to work with their awesome-ness. They really just make my day brighter. Then another one taught me a lot about having a better perspective and trying to see the good in people. Sadly this lesson came about by me being a prick until I realized he wasn't as big of a jerk as I made him out to be and was actually an okay kid who did his job really well (which meant he was better than me at something I thought I was the best at. Seriously pride is like the worst thing for me).
And there are a lot of little tiny things that just make it wonderful. I can't fully explain it but working there has been the biggest blessing in my life.
My job isn’t all that glamorous. From foul smelling dish rooms to that one week where everything seemed to be covered in excrement, my job is pretty dirty. But I love it. I love being able to learn new things and work on new projects. I love losing myself in something that needs to be done.
This place is the closest I come to “home” since I left Oregon. And yes I miss Oregon dearly and if I could find a job and a place to live I’d be there in a heartbeat. But alas I’m stuck in Utah, trying to make the best of it. And this job is the best of Utah.

Up where I work we have an entire dance for this song. I love it.
