I’ve been offered a job in London! The same guy has been calling me for the last two years. The job itself is great although it requires me to travel up to three times a week, within Europe. And I just don’t know if I’m OK with that. I’m 30 now, I feel like it’s time for me to settle down and be in one place. Moving to London and having to travel that much just means I won’t be. I’d be on a plane and at work more than home. A lot of my relationships suffer from me being away, even now. I don’t get to see my family and friends nearly as much as I’d like too.
Yet I feel like I need a challenge in life, to keep things spicy and interesting for me…
Today has been a super busy day! Started my work day before 7AM and left the office around 6PM. Just in time to go home and change before a special screening of The Boy Next Door. It wasn’t the best movie I’ve seen, actually it was only ok.
After the movies I got my hair done as I’m traveling in a few days and I wanted fresh color. Still a red head!
Since coming home I’ve been packing the makeup I’m bringing with me and some clothes. Nowhere near to being done anytime soon! I mean I have to pack tomorrow so it might be a late night…
Coming back to work after a weekend of work is always stressful. It means maybe you didn’t do everything you intended to do that weekend as well as you piling on more work because you did have a work weekend with ideas flowing and problems arising that now need to be solved. Well, that is the case for me at the moment, so much to do, with so little time to do it…
Yesterday I spend all day in meeting, literally. And at home I was trying to clean up and also do some laundry. By 10PM I was exhausted. But when I went to bed I couldn’t sleep because I had a bunch of things on my mind that still needed to be done and so I decided to get up and just to them since I wasn’t gonna be able to sleep. Today I’m tired and my head is killing me. Good thing it’s a slow day at the office and I’m just catching up on things I’ve neglected for a while.
For months now I’ve been working on a project with three people. We’ve sat in countless meetings and discussed this particular project. We’ve made changes from day-to-day. We’ve laughed about it and been upset about it but now, finally, on my part it’s pretty much finished. Pheew, is all I have to say about it. It’s been hard at times but really fun too. In the end it’s all worked out and I’m super happy about it. Tomorrow is a showing for a group of people and friday is the official launch. And even thought I know there are gonna be some issues and changed to be made, I’m ok with that because after months of work we’ve made it to the finish line!
Started my morning of right, with 40 minutes of yoga. Then straight to work after. Meetings and problem solving all day. I’m gonna end my day with a meeting at my accountants office and then dinner with a dear friend.
Today, the only time I had to relax for 10 minutes was my lunch break. Ate a salad in the car, listening to the rainfall. Love that sound…
Before Christmas and my vacation I was doing really good. I was at work before 7AM pretty much every morning. Since I’ve been back I’ve gotten into work around 8.30 and 9.00. Not good!!! I’m gonna get better though, I promise. I have so many plans for this year and little trips I’m gonna take here and there that I need to work long days so I don’t miss anything. It’s easy, as soon as I get back into my routine of doing things!
As much as I welcome change in my life some change isn’t good. This morning everybody at the office was invited to my bosses house for Christmas breakfast, like every other year. A few days before Christmas him and his wife invite us over and make us breakfast. And so they did this year as well. But we all found out it was the last year. My boss is gonna retire summer 2014. And I HATE it. I’ve been here for two years and three months and I’ve loved 99% of the time. Like every other job there are some hard times but the people here are great and we’ve worked thought it. On top of my boss retiring, three more people are leaving. Two are retiring and one is having a baby. That’s cool and I’m happy for her but I’m gonna miss her as well. Her and I are the two youngest here and we’ve bonded in the last few years since we’ve been here. We started on the same day.
Anyway, I wish them all the best but I’m gonna miss them as well. I don’t think working here is gonna be the same or as good as it is now, once they’re gone.
I love my job, but the question is how long will I be here??? Especially since four of my favourite people are leaving within the next six months…
Been looking forward to this day all week! It’s my first weekend off in weeks and the only one off for the rest of the year pretty much. Until I go on vacation dec 20th.
I’m still gonna be busy but I don’t have to travel anywhere and that’s so nice!
Yesterday at the conference was ok and last nights dinner with S was so much fun! Such a nice and smart person! :)
Tonight on the agenda is dinner and bowling with some great people!!! Looking forward to it!!!
