Nubody's

 

No Phone call from Nubody's yet, which makes me believe that I did not get the job. The job didn’t sound that amazing. I’m not a sales person and I hate sales people! But this job would have put me out of my comfort Zone and actually made me work for something, which I haven’t had to do for a really long time. Plus there head office is here in Dartmouth and they promote within. So If I was to get on with Nubody’s I actually had a chance of getting in to a marketing department!

 

 

I don’t see myself at this new job. My two weeks is in at sobeys and I am supposed to be heading in to sign the contract today, yet I still don’t “see” myself there. It’s not a great job either. The pay and hours are good but there is very little work. The benefit of this job is that when the term position is up I will be more qualified to take a job in a company as an administrative assistant and hope they move me to their marketing department in a few years. So really it’s about 3 steps behind Nubody’s but still a step I guess. I could be surprised but it sounds like I will be board out of my mind there. There isn’t a lot to do but I need to grow up, I guess this is how to do it? Leaving Sobeys right now is the only decision I am sure of! So I guess it doesn’t matter what I do as long as I am gone!

 

 

 

 

Anyway, I am going to take a shower and then call Nubody’s. I want a personal rejection, I’m not letting them off the hook with a letter! lol

Tired and Bitching


I'm absolutely exhausted. Why is it the short weeks are always the most tiring? Apparently having two days off in a row is something I should just not get use to. 

I don't really have anything to post. Nothing exciting happened or is happening, I just feel like writing. My birthday is in a couple of days. I'm turning into one of those people I never thought I would be, the ones who get angry or sad the older they get, that hate there birthdays. I don't mind aging, it’s a fact of life, and I will be no different on the 7th then I am today, but birthdays have a way of making you evaluate yourself. And I am in no way where I hd expected myself to be. I've got letters I had to write to myself in High school stating where I want to be in 5 and 10 years and I am scared to read what it says. I really don't think it says "living in my parent’s house and working for the same part time job I got when I was 15". It just sucks... Where is my sunshine? Anyways....

I had an interesting day today, spent most of it at work a lot busier than I expected but still not getting anything accomplished... but that honestly is not my fault. The store manager was suppose to have some space cleared for me to do my work but it wasn't done, but I found lots to do, which might shock people... there really is lots to do in Floral!

Sarah is home for a visit! We just went to see Mama Mia. It was entertaining, and horrible all at the same time. The actress who plays the mother was absolutely horrible! when she was not in it I enjoyed it, when she was... not so much. But since it is Mama Mia... she was in it a lot! Not sure If I am going to get to see Sarah again before she leaves... :(  We were going to go to the Zoo on my birthday but the weather is dictating that I will spend that day alone in my house :(

Tomorrow should be interesting. I had asked for it off for my birthday but Shawn asked me to work so I assumed he needed me, But there are 3 kids working with me! Which at first, I figured that’s good, I can go home super early, but really it sucks, cause I am in charge of them so I can't leave! GURRRR

Pain...

 

I’m quite excited right now. We’ve just started an online book club, super geeky, but I love to read and love to talk about it so this should be fun! I hope we all stick to it and I hope we get a few more members than expected.

Right now, I’m making a CD of The all American Rejects so that when Sara and I go to the concerts I will be familiar with their stuff. I am not usually a “sing along” type person, but at a concert it is a must and not knowing the songs takes away from the whole effect of a concert. I’ve got AAR’s first CD but its been a really long time since I’ve listened to it, but I am excited!

I was off today and it was the perfect day to be off too, I wanted to start reading “Breaking Dawn” by Stephanie Myer, but I have not been feeling well and so I have been medicating myself all day which also means I have slept most of the day. But considering the pain I am in I am super glad I didn’t have to work today so, in the end, despite the pain,  I consider it a good day! Plus, I love to sleep so that’s fun!

I’ve got lots of things to do but I just can’t seem to get motivated to do them... Lets see how the rest of the night goes

I just found out there is no such thing as the real world

 Ok, Here I am, I'm back! (Are you excited Sara?)

So I have to laugh a little here, reading my heading; "I just found out there is no such thing as the real world". A lyric from a John Mayer song obviously. But at the time I meant it as ironic. I hated that everyone always said "hurry up and get ready for the real world" when we were in high school or university. As if we had zero responsibilities when we were in school and lived in a world of freedom and bliss. But now, more then ever to I believe in that title. I have been living in the real world for an awful long time now and nothing at all has changed. I'd like to know what big changes happened for those people who started the "Welcome to the real world" phrase? Cause in my world, everything is pretty much the same as high school. You never get rid of those katty girls, or the back stabbing or the eager brown noser... now its just that are bills start getting higher. That’s the only difference I have found

Today, my father brought home a business card from a friend of his who works for a marketing company. He says he doesn't think they need anyone at the moment but he has a lot of connections and is willing to pass my resume around and put a good word in for me (not that we have ever met). I'm in a serious need to get out of Sobeys (aka Hell). I usually go through a phase where I am miserable and just want out so bad and then I get back to being comfortable and am not trying as hard to get out. Its different now, I am comfortable but I still know I need to get out. I am going to send my resume openly into some event companies that I found in Halifax. I desperately want to be an event planner but can not seem to find any signs of ways break into that industry. If I don't get an interview in the next week or to I am going to break down and apply for jobs out of province. I really don't want to, but it is time. Plus the Psychic said I would be living in a bigger province then Nova Scotia... so of course that must be true!

You Are Peeps

You're the type that's more likely to play with your food than actually eat it.

shopping

Ok, So Shopaholic much?
The mama and me went shopping today (it was her birthday yesterday) and it was really nice. Normally I get really annoyed when I go shopping with her, one reason being we are usually going shopping for me and I can’t find anything and she finds a million things and isn’t even suppose to be buying anything. And two: I’m an odd duck and prefer to shop on my own.

But anyways, It was a nice time and she came out with some really nice clothes. And for me, it was so much nicer to be able to go into a store and try things on and have pretty much everything fit, and look the way I would think they are meant to. I always use to go shopping, take 10 things (If I could even find that much) in the changing room and be lucky if I though 1 outfit looked ok. But today, I found a tone of things to try on and almost everything came home with me.

I found a really nice white blazer, but I figured by the time I need to start wearing that kind of thing it would be to hot, and then when blazers were back in, white would be out of style…. Not that I’m a style follower… you need style for that… but white really is only nice at certain times. So anyways, the blazer stayed in the store. But I did come home with:

3 shirts, 3 skirts, a pair of shoes, 2 pairs of flip flops, a beach bag, 2 beach towels, and a bathing suit. So really, that’s not all that much. But for me… that’s a whole summers worth of shopping (last year anyways)

Plus the good thing is, two of the shirts and two of the skirts go well with a few things I all ready had, so I’ve actually made at least 4 outfits out of just those, so I’m happy.

I just finished my last ever assignment!!! How exciting is that!!
Well really I still have to edit my paper and make the stupid bibliography. And I have a presentation tonight, one tomorrow and a 100 min test online, and then there are my two final exams. But really, homework-wise I’m done! FOREVER!!!


Oh, and by the way, JUNO’s Minus Pam Anderson where amazing… I have a new love… Michale Buble! He’s so cute… and tearing up during his performance and calling his girl sweetie pie didn’t help at all… :)


Only 19 More sleeps till I'm in CUBA!!

We’ve got our trip booked for Cuba! I’m super excited! We are leaving at 6:00am on April 23 and coming home at 11:50pm on April 30!!

 

I’m also nervous about the food, I was worried on my own and than I heard from a friend how awful it is, and poor Kate being a vegetarian that makes it worse. My friend said that the food that’s out at lunch time is the same food at dinner, and that the vegetables aren’t washed properly and are loaded with pesticides!  I’m afraid Kate may not be able to eat at all!!! Plus, now here is the biggest issue: THEY DON’T HAVE ANY COKE!!! Well they have coke but I prefer the kind you drink… not the kind you snuff

 

The only issue here is that SMU's final examination dosent end until April 29... I'm a little nervous... but I should only have 3 exams at most, 1 is a full year class and this semester we have the exam on the first day of exams so I would suspect this will be the same for April. The other two courses are online courses which usually mean in the first week as well.

Aside from that I'm super excited!

 

This is what the package includes:

Buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner daily
Dinner - a la carte restaurant
Daytime snack bar
Domestic drinks
