Re: “My Coffee Shop Went Tits Up

I remember when that place first opened - literally. As in when it was not even Ouro Preto, but Spring Cafe. The whole Spring exterprise struggled there for a while, then died. The only thing left was the cafe, which changed it's name. Now even the cafe is out of business, maybe that location is cursed? (jk) It's a beautiful place, but it's just far enough away from Spring Garden Road for people to pass over. It's a shame.

I found that persistance really is key here. As a student who comes back to Halifax in the summer, it usually takes me about a month to find a job. At first, the jobs are terrible: low wage, long and odd hours, and little to no breaks (which is especially tough when you are on your feet all day). That said, last summer I got an amazing job that paid well ($10/hr), had nice regular hours (9 to 5, Monday to Friday), gave me a decent lunch break, and the whole time I could only think "Wow, I'm not qualified to do this!" but I did a great job and got credit for doing so. So basically it comes down to: persistance + dealing with shitty jobs + working hard = getting a good job next time. Also, when you have a shitty job to begin with, everything after it seems amazing.
