Success!!!!! I made it to the end of the week.I only napped 3 days this week. That’s almost a record for me – yesss!!!
I’m hoping this weekend is more funfilled. Tonight Chris and I are going for dinner and then to a movie. I’m excited. It feels like I haven’t been on a movie date with him in a long time. Tomorrow we might get up early and go to the Farmer’s Market. I actually wouldn’t mind checking out some yard sales this week 🙂 It would be nice to get some cheap finds and then do some DIY projects to decorate our apartment. Our apartment looks so plain. There is nothing on the walls and very minimal “decor”. I feel like I can’t get too decorative since we’re only going to be at the apartment for a little over a year (hopefully), then we’ll be buying a house. It was like that for me for the past 7 years! I haven’t been able to “nest” in forever! First I was living in residence at the University, then there was the apartment with my ex, then back to my parents house, then living in my Nonna’s old house, then moving in with a friend, then back to my parents house, and NOW the apartment with Chris. Wow, I moved quite a bit.
Saturday night I’m hoping to go out with the girls for drinks and dancing. I miss getting dressed up and going out. Most of my friends have husbands and babies, so it’s harder to plan a night out. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that they find babysitters or that their husbands are in a good mood and want to watch the kids so we can have a good time. I’m too antisocial now. Since I got a new job last summer I don’t really talk to many people during the day. My office is in the back of our building, so there is very little interaction for me. For 3 years I used to work at a job that required me to talk to so many different people all day long. That’s pretty much the only thing I loved about that job – everything else was pretty shitty. After I go home from work I pretty much just eat dinner, exercise, and go to bed. Very little social activities going on there. Is this what growing up is like? I barely remember my mom ever going out after work or on the weekends. I need to get a social hobby….immediately!! I remember when going out with my friends was the most entertaining thing I could do. Now it seems like laying down and watching TV with my dog is the most I’m willing to do. I’m so boring – or I’m getting old.
Today has been such a long day. That’s probably because most of my work is done and I’ve just been looking through old documents and files at work and correcting them/organizing them/playing candy crush – hehehe! I needed to step out and grab myself a pick-me-up! 🙂
I love my job, I really do – but sometimes I miss being in a more interactive workplace. My last job was absolutely toxic, but at least I got to socialize most of the day. Now I sit in an office and stare at a computer screen the majority of the day. My office is in the back corner, so nobody walks by (unless they are on their way to the bathroom), and my office is the only one without a window. This makes me sad. There is a smaller boardroom that has a window, and I’m secretly hoping it will be transformed into my new office in the next year or so *fingers crossed*
I always wanted to work in an office. I wanted to have my own desk that I could put my own pictures on (I have a beta fish instead because I never take pictures), a filing cabinet, need to sign a bunch of documents and make important phone calls. I guess I’m just not used to it. I worked for three years at a financial institution and I didn’t have my own space or tasks that were assigned to me specifically. I just waited for people to come ask me for some of their money – FUN TIMES!
I need to be more organized. For someone that is obsessed with daily planners, post it notes, and such…I’m not very organized. I buy all this stuff, but then I don’t use them. I just created a TO DO LIST template on my computer and put it in a work binder I have, and I’m hoping I’ll start using it. I spend hours making a planner for myself, and I think I wrote three things in it and now I have no idea where it is, since I moved. FAIL! I want to be one of those organized people. I am not the definition of organized. If you could see my work desk right now you’d see papers all over the place. That’s how I live – in pure chaos. I can only imagine how much more successful I’d be, at pretty much everything, if I was just more organized. I’d probably be more committed to getting my work done and not procrastinating, getting my workouts done and eating healthier, being more successful with my PartyLite business, etc. I at least should give it a try, right?
It’s FRIDAY!!! Sweet success! I made it through another week. These weeks coming up are going to be cray-cray!
I’m a bit hung over at work today, not going to lie hehe. I had a Partylite Party at my house last night. Lots of my family showed up, so it was really great. It was my first official “party” since becoming a consultant in November. I had a book party in December, but that doesn’t really count as a “party”. It’s a lot more fun then I thought it would be. I guess you just need the right crowd though. I’m really glad I decided to become a Partylite Consultant. It’s slow going at first, especially since I have a full time job, but I know that if I put more effort into it I’ll get more out of it. It was really effortless to start, and I don’t know what I was so worried about. I guess I just had this fear that I would be risking something, which I wasn’t. It didn’t even cost me anything to start up! My unit leader is super amazing too. I think it’ll be nice to get more successful at it (once I find more candle lovers) and then I can make it a bigger part of my career! I know lots of people who say the products are expensive and blah blah – but in all honesty, they go on sale ALL THE TIME!!! They are also better quality, which is what people want.
Independent Sales jobs have really taken off lately. I feel like every other person I know is selling something independently, or working online. It’s so convenient to be able to stay at your house and earn money! I’m not sure if it’s become so popular because people need more money for the things that they need/want, or if people are just getting too lazy to work outside of their homes.
I can hear the pile of paperwork on my desk calling my name…only 4 more hours until the weekend officially begins for me!!!
