I feel like I haven't blogged in AGES but I've been meaning to do one of these update thingies for anyone who cares. (This will be a rather wordy post without pictures. Sorry!)
Firstly, it's my birthday tomorrow!!! The last birthday as a "single" woman. I'm still not sure how I feel about that. I was planning on sitting on my bum all day on the couch, watching tv but that went out the window (reason will be revealed later). So instead, I'll be celebrating my birthday over dinner with family on Saturday. I have been wanting to do a birthday giveaway, but I haven't any funds (yet). So I'll hopefully get one up and running in a month or two (after I pay off some wedding bills).
Now for why my original plans flew out the window... I've got a job! It's a casual temporary job (and by casual, I mean a full-time-ish job - 9am-5pm, Monday-Friday), which has the potential to turn full-time if I'm able to prove myself. I started on Monday, and have been struggling quite a bit. Not only am I struggling with having to wake up so early to get to work and coming home when it's dark, but also the responsibilities that I have been given. It requires a lot of "prying", and I'm not someone who loves to pry... ok maybe I am, but not at work. Work was much better today, and I'm hoping that it'll get better as days go by.
I'm still weighing up the pros and cons of working. Here's my list so far
- Money to go shopping
- Everyone is so nice where I work
- I'm working for a company in my field of study (can be a con too).
- Have to wake up at 6.15am every working day. :(
- Go to bed at around 9-10pm, so I don't get grumpy during the day = no life or time to do anything, including shopping.
- Takes about one hour to travel to and from work.
- Travelling with school kids in the morning.
- Uncertain about wanting to continue working in this field of work.
Lastly, I wanted to update anyone who is interested in getting their eyes lasered (if you haven't read about my first post, click here). My vision is (near) perfect. I'm still amazed at how clearly I can see. I'm currently on my last bottle of eye drops (1 drop in each eye, 3 times a day), and whilst that is annoying to have to keep remembering to put eye drops in, it is so worth it. I'm not sure if I mentioned this in the epi-LASIK post I did two months ago, but I developed a little bump on my left eye. Whilst I cannot feel it, I've been told that it has affected my vision (minorly, as I do not notice any blurriness). I've been to an eye specialist twice over a month and on the second visit, I've been informed that the bump has flattened slightly but it is still there and is visible to the naked eye. Hopefully it will go away, but I'm not too fussed at the moment, as I'm currently enjoying my near-perfect vision. I'd highly recommend this procedure if you're on the fence, as I certainly do not regret doing it despite my slight complication.
Anyway, I'm hoping to get some blog posts up over the weekend, so stay tuned for those. Sorry again for this wordy, picture-less post. Thanks for reading (and caring) if you're reading this! :)
