March 1 is the day that I decided enough was enough.

That day, I left a job that I had for three years in retail to begin my new adventure in the fast food business as a cook at Sonic Drive-In. It was an easy decision for me to make and here is why.

I got real sick and tired of being dragged in to the petty work drama that happened way too often, and it was completely uncalled for. I understand that there is drama at every place of work, but this drama was every single day, and it aggravated me to the core. It was definitely time for a huge change and a fresh start.

I also needed a major change in pace. I am the type of person where I must be doing something, and if I’m not, I get bored and aggravated all at once. There were just too many times that I had nothing to do at that place and it made the days drag on. I like to work for what I have, and I honestly can’t stand getting paid when all I have done was stand around and talk with people. I like the feeling of accomplishment.

It got to the point where I just didn’t enjoying going to that job, and I would have much rather been in classes instead of being there. The job just wasn’t what it used to be for me, and I was honestly more miserable than I have ever been, and I needed out.

I will miss a handful of my coworkers, but they knew it was time for me to go. They could see how much the job had changed who I was as a person, and obviously it wasn’t a good change.

I have had my new job for about a week now and I have had more fun interacting with my new coworkers and managers. We have so much working with each other, we are a team and treat each other with the upmost respect. I finally feel like I have a place where I belong.
