Let it be
On Monday at the education centre we had a presentation ceremony and a little party for all the children who had done really well throughout the year. A couple of years ago I had to help with the trophies on the stage and I totally messed up and knocked down a whole row of trophies. At least there was no damage to anything except my ego. Well, I’ll be honest; I was really quite embarrassed. Thankfully last year I took photos instead, and this year, I did the same. It was quite fun walking around the hall trying to get the best shots. I used my boss’s camera though, and I guess it was pretty good for a point-and-shoot.
It was rather tempting to eat the candy and other food that was put out on the table, and I couldn’t resist the temptation so I had a bit of candy. I really have been trying to eat less junk food lately, but I seem to have some ridiculous cravings. It could just be a phase, though, because I’ve gone for months with little junk food.
After all it’s the end of the year, and celebrations are quite popular so it should be okay to have a bit of a treat. I have to admit that I’ve had a lot lately, though. While my medication resulted in a loss of appetite in the first week, my appetite returned, but it’s still decreased compared to how my appetite was before taking the medication. It’s been three weeks and I’m feeling rather good though. I hope it keeps working for me.
Lately I’ve been thinking about my jobs and I think that I need to let go of my job at the education centre. It was the first job I ever got, and I’ve been there for nearly four years now. I’ve done well there and I believe my boss is very happy with my work, but next year I don’t think I can fit the shifts into my schedule, and I can’t change it because I work on every day they are open, from opening time until closing time. I don’t mind working there and I like that it’s close to home, but seeing as my classes next year will most likely be in the evening, I don’t think it’ll work out. It will be too inconvenient to travel from work all the way to university, and I may even be late.
That said, I’m going to spend a lot of time cleaning up my websites during my break this Christmas/New Year and merging some websites together… that kind of thing. I realise that I might have been pushing myself a little too much. I can definitely deal with everything, and I like having many projects, but I’ve decided that I want to step away from the internet and find time to do more practical things and get into the outdoors during my spare time. I’ll still be blogging, I’ll still be around, but I just want to make room for other things, that’s all. :)
Earlier this week I did manage to return that book to my other workplace. My feet hurt from walking a lot and I have blisters from my shoes. My supervisor was not actually there when I returned the book, but my boss was, and I was a bit relieved. James thinks that perhaps I have been informally fired. :P They haven’t called me since October, and they just wanted their book back. Ah well, my boss did say he’d keep in touch and let me know if any work came up that I could do.
Tomorrow is my last day of work for the year at my newest web designing job. We’re having a work Christmas lunch at a restaurant I’ve never been to. There’s sushi. That should be good. :D After work I’m going with James to see Bob Evans and Adalita live – and it’s in a music restaurant/bar so it’s a bit fancy. I’m going to dress up a bit. I found a black dress that looks lovely; if I wear my blazer over it, it’s suitable for work. I’m going to wear it to work so I don’t have to change later on, since I’m going to meet James straight afterwards.
Looks like a lovely Friday. /love
