    It sucks when you have bills to pay, a mortgage, and a wedding to plan and pay for so I got myself a 3rd job (as if two wasn't enough). I now work in a hair salon doing both hair and facials, I work at a nail salon doing just facials, and I also work at a spa where I do facials, waxing, and makeup. Well, last night I got a call from my Spa Manager telling me that they're closing!! Times are rough for everyone and of course my line of work is "luxury" and if people have to cut back on spending, I'm the one that gets "cut back". It sucks bc I was getting paid good commission for each facial. The good thing is that the spa I worked for was supposed to open in the gym I go to which is literally down the road from my house. Even if they don't go in there, the gym will still put a spa in there and I could apply for a job. It'd be so awesome going to work and just walking across the hall to the gym. So now I'm down to 2 jobs again lol

    Sorry I rambled. <-- but this is what I look like right now lol

      Wow, what a crazy time you are going through! I hope it all works out. That would be so convenient for you to work at your gym and so close to home (saves on gas too). Sending great vibes from the Windy City.

        aww thanks for the vibes :)

        Yea the gas is definitely hard for me. My hair salon job is an hour away so I actually spend more on traveling than I make!

          I hope everything works out for you. That would be really cool to work at at gym though. I always wanted to be a esthetician. I think that would be a fun job!

            Sorry to hear times are tough. My parents own a salon and they have been super slow too.

              It will all work out for the better when the other spa opens! Maybe you will even get a free membership to the gym!!

                Well I think it's great that you actually have more than 1 job- at least you are trying. But don't worry too much b/c in time it will pick up, the weather is getting nice, summer is around the corner.

                I always bitch and moan that I have no $ saved. It's never ending I swear. I am SO stressd right now about $$ I could jump outta my car while driving.
                I should be more like you, Juicy, and all those other peop's out there that have more than 1 job. ARGHHH

                  Aww, that sucks. Good luck with the gym spa though!

                  If I lived closer to your area I'd give you some business. I haven't really found a spa I like around me. I used to go to one in New Hope, PA.But since moving further south, that's just way too far.

                    It really is a great job. I relax as my clients relax and you get to meet interesting people.

                      We had talked about that with the spa owners . We'd get employee discounts so our membership would be $60. My FI bought my membership for me before the gym opened so I got an even better deal and only have to pay $40 a month forever no matter if they raise their prices WOOHOO!

                      It sucks having to run around everywhere but I've been lucky with the employers I have. They're flexible with my schedule which is key. I might even be trying to get another job on the side making scrapbooks for people. I just feel bad having some debt going into this marriage. I wanna get my shizzznit straight lol
