Roller Coaster

I am quite alive in a sense. April was a crazy month. It had a lot of ups and downs that I feel spent and exhausted. Work is a part of that all on its own. When they hired me, they warned me that it was a high volume job and holy shit they were not kidding.

Every day is a roller coaster. It’s so busy with many different elements, duties, perspectives, inputs and outputs… Apparently our department has quite the reputation of having hard work because of all the things we do. I’m not complaining though. I don’t mind it. It keeps me busy. It helps me keep my mind off other things I constantly think about and it just makes the day fly by so fast. Plus, constant busy days is a good sign for a company so at least that way I know I’m working for a successful company that’s has been and will be going on for years to come. Did I mention before that I was only hired as a 1 year contract? Well that’s changed. A couple of weeks ago, I was offered a permanent position!! So I am quite happy about that. That was a major highlight in the past month. It was a relief to be honest. As thankful as I was to even have an opportunity to even be working for a whole year, I was not looking forward to finding another job after that 1 year. Now I know I don’t have to go through the stress of trying to find another job especially since finding a job these days is pretty difficult. I am thankful. Very thankful and I thank God for blessing me with a good job. This company is amazing and I hope to be here for a very long time and make a good career here.

The downs of my month? A part of me doesn’t even want to say. I feel like if I talk about it the more the bad feelings linger in my body especially when I have to keep my head up high and be strong. Let’s just say that being an adult sucks sometimes. Having all these responsibilities makes me wish I was a child again where all I would worry about us what my next toy could be and getting home in time after school to watch my favourite cartoons. But in the light of it all, what I am thankful for is having supportive people around me. People who care, make me laugh and show me there’s so much more to life than all the bad things we adults go through. To those people, you don’t even know how much I love you and cherish you.

One thing I am excited about is the summer. My husband and I are trying to plan a camping trip this August with my best friend and her boyfriend. I haven’t been camping in almost 8 years!!! I’m excited to ride the ferry to the island, have a campfire, make smores, maybe do a little drinking, do some fishing, sleeping in a tent, having a beautiful mountain/sea view, have some good laughs with my friends and my husband… I’m really really looking forward to it. Plus it will be around the time of our 1 year wedding anniversary!!! So that’s a milestone I’m looking forward to as well!!

So I just need to keep working hard and it will make waiting for some special days all the more worth it.

What are you guys looking forward to that you could really need right now in this cruel world?

    Congrats on getting the permanent position! That’s great that you can stay at a company you like and that you don’t have to go through the job search again 🙂 Staying busy is nice because it’s never boring, and as you said, it makes the day go by quickly. However, it can get very tiring, so I hope you have some down periods where things are a bit slower!

    The camping trip sounds like it’ll be a lot of fun 🙂 My husband and I are thinking of planning a trip later too, possibly near our anniversary in October.

    April has been hard for me too, but it is getting better in May. I am moving to a place with roommates in a nice place and can’t wait. Staying busy is good =) Congrats on your position!
