The Work Zombie

30th December 2013 13 comments

For the last two weeks or so, I’ve been adjusting to full-time work. It’s not so difficult per say, but a change is a change and it’s taken some time to realise that work is unfortunately going to take a lot of time of my life 🙁 Basically my schedule these days are: wake up, go to work, get home, eat, shower, study, sleep and the process starts again. I’ve been trying to manage my time a little more efficiently so that I get some ‘me’ time so I don’t go crazy 🙂

At work, well, I’ve been there for four years already so I’m okay with the environment and everyone 😀 All apart from my manager it seems. We’re awkward with each other – I get the feeling he doesn’t like me that much – there’s another intern with me, and I can definitely tell that the other intern is his favourite. It’s a tad awkward sometimes~

Also, a belated Merry Christmas to everyone! 😀 Did everyone have a good Christmas? My family doesn’t celebrate it but we tried this year by having a family dinner and exchanging presents. It was really great 🙂

And can you believe that it’s nearly 2014 already? Holy crap! Where did this year go? This year flew by very fast for me. I’ll probably make a post about my New Year resolutions in the future but I know very well the top priority will be becoming a registered pharmacist.

Why, hello there!

I haven’t been feeling entirely myself these past few weeks, which was why I avoided blogging. Remember the decision I was talking about in the previous post? Basically, things got extremely messed up. For the last weeks, my life was basically like a drama series – betrayal and a heavy dose of angst all round. There was a period in which I didn’t even know if I had an intern position anymore. That was the worst, being in limbo.

Bottom line though, things have settled down and I do have an intern position at the old pharmacy so I’m really happy to have that part of my life done with 😀

Assignments and exams draw near – bringing a wide range of emotions: stress, determinedness and nostalgia. Stress’ a natural emotion, as long as I manage to keep it to a healthy amount of stress 🙂 I’m pretty much a procrastinator but I don’t think I am as bad as some people I know. I remember my friend had not touched a single lecture of any of our units and basically crammed 48 hours before the exam…I don’t think I would be able to do that to myself. But nostalgia for this means that the semester is drawing to an end and I’ll graduate from university and move to full-time work…not looking forward to it because yeah I’m a lazy bum 😀

NanoWrimo

Is anyone participating on the NanoWrimo this year? I’ve always wanted to participate but unfortunately, November has always been ‘exam month’ with finals scattered throughout. I’m going to see if I can do it this year though, so if anyone’s participating, let’s cheer each other on, yeah? 🙂
