My laptop seems to be going easier on me these days, so I’ll leave y’all with some updates that have been happening:
- MY BEST FRIEND OF 19 YEARS GOT MARRIED! (And she looked gorgeous.) Yes, we literally did everything together, and the fact that she’s now wife reminds me of just how old I’m getting.
2. I’ll be honest. Throughout my years, the longest I’ve worked is at the local newspaper (The Star), and that was part time (I’ve been with them for a total of almost 10 years.. and counting). I’ve worked full-time at a good few places; but I’ve never lasted a year (usually around 5-6 months, the longest so far being 11 months) because I was always overworked and underappreciated, or made to feel inferior due to my ‘rookie’ status in the company. So I’m extremely lucky to have an understanding and sporting boss this time around, who had leadership qualities that the bosses from my previous companies never had (again, except Star). Sure, there’s still that early morning dread, and there are times where I feel so stressed that it’s not even funny, but at least I’ll receive help. And that’s the most important thing in a working environment: working together.
WELL, now that wasn’t a very long list now was it?
