Weather With You
The weather here has been ridiculous and I feel like I’m melting. /ehh
I went to work today, but annoyingly enough, the air conditioner was not working. They seem to have always had that problem on the top floor of the building.
It wasn’t that bad in the morning, but by noon, the heat was terrible. My boss said I could go home if I wanted, because it wasn’t really appropriate to work in the heat. I don’t know how she was coping though! It was getting warmer and warmer inside. Its highest was 36 degrees Celsius, and we could see the temperature rising on the thermometer. :(
I was starting to get a big headache but I didn’t want to leave in the middle of doing a storyboard, and I did not want to inconvenience my dad.
I went to the shops during my break and bought the purple bangles I had spotted the other day. I got a black set with it as well, because it was buy 1 get 1 free. Don’t you love sales? :)
My boss told me about lemonade in the fridge. /bounce I filled my bottle with a bit of it, but I also had chilled water from the water dispenser.
I am not a big fan of soft drink or carbonated drinks. They make me feel sick easily. But I had had about three bottles of water within two hours, and was constantly going to the bathroom. /hmph I was getting sick of drinking water and I wanted something sweet. I avoided spending money on bubble tea again.
It started to thunder and there was lightning in the sky in the afternoon. My friend decided to go home in fears that it would rain (with my boss making that suggestion). I started to freak out too, but it didn’t rain at all.
I left a little bit early to catch an earlier bus. It was still hot outside, but there was a slight breeze.
I got annoyed when I got to the station where the bus stopped, and I had to wait for my dad for a very long time because he fell asleep. I can’t blame him – he works night shift. But I was annoyed because I didn’t have a great day due to the weather.
I love my new job. It isn’t hard to say that. I’m getting paid for doing something I love. It’s a lot like designing a web page, more like an interactive one for children, and I get to use colours, and I use a basic program to do so. If anything, running my website is probably harder. :P
But, it’s been keeping me busy. So I’m up on my feet. I may have finished university for the year, but this work still takes up a lot of my time, as does ballet, which I recently rejoined.
Hard work pays off though. I blogged earlier about Looped Colloquy, a journal I created with a group for university. I got the result back for that, and I got a Distinction. Which is hard to describe, but it’s the second highest grade. :)
