Quick trip to Vic

So this week I was mainly poolbar, and since the weather has not been great I had a few extra days off. I decieded to go and visit my sister in Vancouver and go to Victoria to see my mom and ride my horse. I drove back yesterday and than I worked the night shift at the liqour store training Lauren and Jenna. It was pretty fun. Wasn't too busy so after stocking and all that fun stuff we played some card games and lurked the internet trying to find some ideas of where to apply for second co-op. I didn't really come to any conclusions though, I am still undecided. So many choices!

So next week is my last week of work. Our supervisor is letting us end on the 20th so that we have a couple of days to pack and say goodbye to all of our friends here in Kelowna. I am in the liqour store for every shift! I do like working in the liqour store because there is a computer and I am able to get some school stuff done, however making no tips, well very minimal, is a bit hurting. Oh well. My goals are going great. I saved some money, just started to start working on getting healthy after a good summer, meeting alot of people with good hotel connections, as well as expanding my knowledge and learning tons in alot of different departments!! Well I better get going, I'm in the liqour store again right now with Jenna and we have some stocking to get done. Until next time... xoxo

Last busy weekend :(

Summer is coming to an end, and so is the craziness at the Delta Grand. This past weekend was our last busy weekend we are suppostue have until summer next year. This weekend I worked the evening shift at the liqour store with another co-worker. We were antisipating it be quite busy so there was two of us on. However it was not really busy at all. I thought everyone would be going out and partying since it is the last weekend before everyone has to go back to school but it was quite quiet. It got a little bit busy for short periods of time, but there was really no need for there to be two of us on. Its nice though because when there is no one in the store and all the jobs that need to get done are done, you have someone to talk to and play crazy 8's with. I am the master at that cardgame just so you know.

Today I am working in the liqour store again. I was suppostue be on pooldeck but it is calling for rain, and it has just started to get quite cloudy so it was a good thing that they decided not to open. One of the gals that works in the liqour store got in a car accident so the f and b manager would have had to work liqour store today, so she is quite happy that I am in here instead. She is a very busy lady.

Only 24 days left in this beautiful city, and boy am I going to miss it. Don't get me wrong there is no place like home, but the people that I have met here are going to be very hard to leave behind. I am very excited about school! Might sound a bit nerdy but I actually miss school. Not really the homework, but deffinately the hmgt family, and dunlop house. It will be nice to see everyone so soon!

This week my scheduale mainly consists of liqour store and poolbar. Oh, and I am shadowing my manager on thursday, wait maybe wednesday....anyways, one of those days. Should be interesting to see what they have to deal with in a day.

Well that is all for now. Hope everyones co-op's are going great, and I cannot wait to see you all!!
