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 😀


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? 🙂
