Catching Up

Since I have today off, and I decided to sleep in and then take a nap before getting my day started. I was so tired yesterday that I passed out the minute I lied down.

In a little bit, I will be getting some work done on my courses and just taking it easy. I have an early start tomorrow, so I will have tons of time after work to get stuff done, as well.

I hope everyone has a great day!

Finding My Way

I’m starting to settle into my new, insane schedule and it’s nice. I have something to do with myself 8 hours a day and it forces me to deal with difficult situations. I was extremely proud of myself today. I messed up a few times, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t try.

I have met a lot of interesting people, both on staff and that come in for coffee, and that never would have happened if I didn’t come to this job. Even the not-so-pleasant ones entertain me. At the end of the day, I am exhausted to the point that I don’t even want to eat and I’m in autopilot, but I don’t dread getting up everyday nearly as much as I thought I would.

I hope everyone had a wonderful day and sleeps well! I know as soon as I’m done writing this, I am going to sleep.

Always Rushing

No matter how early I get up to start getting ready, I’m still running around last minute to get everything together. I got up at 5 AM today, took a nap on the couch until 7 AM, and I need to be at work at 10 AM. I will be leaving at 9:30, so 2.5 hours should be plenty of time to get cleaned up and ready to go to work, right? Nope.

I can guarantee that I will be running around at 9:20 making sure I have everything I need before I dart out of the house to meet my Uber. I even tried putting everything I need in one place the night before, and I still manage to be in a hurry.

I don’t know why I’m like this, nor do I understand how I can use every single minute of 2 hours to get ready, but I’ve come to accept it.

Lazy Day

I need to stop planning my days out because every time I do, something comes up. I ended up getting a bit sick this morning, so I spent the afternoon resting. I did get a few things done, but not as much as I wanted to.

Something exciting that is happening, though, is that I sent a box of gifts to my wonderful boyfriend and it should be getting there in a few hours according to the tracking app. I am so exciting for him to get it and I really hope he likes everything.

I head back to work in the morning (10 AM – 6 PM), and my mom will be visiting me at the end of my shift so she can see me in action!

I hope everyone had a wonderful day and have a great tomorrow!

Stuff to Do

I have the day off from work, but that doesn’t mean I don’t have anything to do. I have a ton of cleaning I need to get done, so that’s how I will spend my day… once I get out of bed, that is!

I’m happy I don’t have to go to work today, but I want to keep moving! I’m really happy that I have all of this energy now.

A Really Good Day

I had a really good day. Yes I went to work and it was a bit hectic, but one little girl made it all worth it. It was her birthday and she brought in a coloring book and crayons and I told her that I loved coloring. I always interact with the kids that come in. Happy kids = happy parents/grandparents, which means everyone can enjoy their meals.

When this little girl was done celebrating her special day, she came back up to the counter and handed me one of her original pieces and even gave me a hug. This gesture was so pure and innocent, it made me a bit tears. It was just such a sweet moment for me, as are all of my interactions with the younger kids. They have such booming personalities and making them happy brings me joy.

Above is the picture she colored for me, and I hope to see her work in an art gallery some day.

Busy Weekend

I worked through the weekend, and I am exhausted. Thankfully, I have tomorrow off so I can sleep in a bit. I am so tired, but I am truly proud of myself.

Nothing else really happened except for work and sleep. When I’m more awake, I will write more, but right now I’m going to try to get another hour of sleep in before I have to get ready.

I’m Learning

Even though I’ve only been there for 3 days, I’m picking up on a lot of what needs to be done. It’s hectic and stressful but, for the most part, I keep cool and push through it all. I’m proud of myself and self-pride is a rarity for me.

I’m one of the lucky few to say that they somewhat enjoy what they’re doing as far as work is concerned. Yes, it’s hard and I haven’t been there long at all, but I actually feel like I can work there.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend, and if you’re going to be working like I am, try to make it fun!

A Long Day

Today marked the first of many, as I encountered someone who was a bit unpleasant… At the time, I actually got really upset to the point that I was fighting back tears, but the fact of the matter is that he doesn’t matter and I can’t keep wasting tears on people who aren’t worth it.

Over the past few days, I have dealt with such nice people, whether it’s customers or coworkers, and that’s what I need to focus on. I am very lucky to be working with people who are so understanding, and they make it worthwhile.

All I have to do and keep doing is focus on the good people and it will make working, and living, a lot easier. I know I can do it.

Early to Rise

Another early start for me. I feel good this morning. I slept through the night and I feel rested, so hopefully I will make it through the day.

I am still getting used to this new schedule, but it’s a lot easier than I thought it would be. Even though I’m still tired all the time, I’m starting to feel better physically which, in turn, makes me feel better emotionally.

I’ve only been up for a couple of hours, so I don’t have much else to report on! I hope everyone has a great day!
