OK so I KINDA fell off the wagon...

Hello Lovelies,

I know, I know. I haven't posted in almost 2 weeks.


My week got pretty hectic after I stopped writing and I was heading into vacation. So I figured I would disconnect from the computer and get out of my own head for a bit. I needed a bit of R&R.

So let do some catch up. I'll get the nasty stuff over first.

I'm massive. There's no doubt about that. I'm sitting at 146 steadily without any loss. Now, Aunt Flo is coming this weekend so I'm expecting that spike on the scale that normally comes at this time. But I need to get my ass in gear. And the first thing is to get my diet in check. I'm not even going to write what I've been eating but all my decisions have come out of laziness and it's as simple as that. It's just my own damned fault.

My contract at work is quickly coming to an end so the job hunt is more feverish than it has ever been. I do have my first interview next week though. It's for a government program that sends student groups on exchanges within Canada to learn about Canadian culture and heritage. I'd be doing PR, new media, event planning and other various marketing and communications work. It's kind of my dream job. It might not be in the industry that I'd prefer but the job itself is what I've been looking for!

As much as I hope to find a new job, I'll just be happy when I'm done with this job. I'm tired of only getting half of the information I need to do my job and then people get annoyed when I ask for the rest of the information. For example: I'm supposed to send out an acceptance letter, invoice and registration links for a new student. However, I have really only heard of this person in the last couple of days, I don't have any information and the family hasn't filled out any of the application forms needed. They are not in the database, and therefore, I can't send out the registration links because I have no information to send! But when I ask for them to contact the family, I'm told to drop them a line. I ask for contact information and I get a street address... Ummmm... HOW  am I supposed to contact them? And on top of that I have had no part in this process so it would be better for the parties involved to do so. I don't mind sending out the information but they need to disclose the information I need to do this job properly. These are the roadblocks I encounter EVERY SINGLE DAY here. UGH!

Anyways, 3 weeks left of this place and I'm done for ever. I debating removing my work e-mail off my phone so I don't get bothered with it. I'm also thinking of blocking my bosses numbers so that once I leave they can't contact me. And if they need me to do something for them, I'm also considering charging them if I haven't found a new job in the meantime. I don't owe them anything. No  charity from me.

Anyways, my day is almost done so I'm going to pack up and get ready for D to pick me up.


  1. Good luck with the interview - I hope you get it hon :)

    Ps: if my days were like that, I would probably end up stabbing someone lol... wtf

  2. i am massive as well! It feels awful I know. good luck on the interview. It sounds like a fun job, but can jobs ever really be fun? Good riddance to that job. Sounds like a nightmare. Hopefully you are on to bigger and better.
