Alright, i have a job! I have an awesome job!
I am now with Piccolo, floral artistry by design at the Ritz-Carlton in Pasadena. It's so freaking great. I get to do wedding plannings, website work, and hands-on floral arranging experience. I gets to work wif flowars!!!
My boss is a young and hip persian who likes to wear jeans and open shirts. He's cool, a real estate shark too, and the casual business environment is very welcoming. His mother does most of the arranging, with Dean (my boss) doing a lot of designing and concepts. There's also a latino dude named Diego, who does like everything from arranging to cleaning Dean's car, who has a great and funny attitude that's kind of muted due to the language difference.
Right now we're working on Dean's sister's wedding, so everything is personal. With 12 people here working on flower balls (topiary balls if you wanna be technical) it's been a great big argument with everyone screaming insults in farsi. Ah, i love it. Stressful, but it's totally awesome!
I really think this job is going to be so great, and i get to pick out the laptop i'll be using at work. Can we say "DVD burner"!?
