Onward, Upward and Outward

Life has been a bit crazy for the last few months. While I've managed to keep the blog going I've been worried about not being able to give it my all. For those of you who don't already know, I am no longer the manager at Tea Drunk. I won't go into the nitty gritty here so let's just say that I learned a lot. While searching for a new career move, I interviewed with quite a few different tea companies. That was definitely an interesting experience. Could you believe that one company didn't hire me because I didn't look alternative enough? Too bad I still haven't gotten that tea tattoo I wanted!

In the end I accepted a position as an assistant manager at David's Tea. This surprised some tea friends but at the end of the day, I'm still doing what I love. I get to drink tea all day while helping New Yorker's discover their love for the leaf. My location is the Chelsea store (in case you want to help me out with some extra sales, lol). It's been a great experience so far and I am looking forward to growing with them as they rapidly expand here in the U.S. What's even better is that I am finally starting to get some work/life balance back. I had forgotten what weekends felt like!

In case all of that change wasn't crazy enough, I'm also moving in with my boyfriend this week. I'm not sure he's completely prepared to live with used leaves in the sink and tea gear everywhere but that will come eventually. All kidding aside, he's very supportive of my tea habit so I'm a lucky girl. I'm excited to finally be able to display my teaware properly. I'll be sure to post pictures once I've got everything set up. I'm also really happy that I'll now have a futon of my own for passing tea friends to crash on when they are visiting New York City.
