People often say it’s about making the most out of every situation, and it’s true, you make your own outcome of things. Whether you want to be happy or not, you decide. But it’s not easy.
France was a great experience, or I should say great Learning experience. I got to see the beautiful scenery as well as pastries that were delicious to look at and taste. And most of all, I’ve learned that friends are like a four leaf clover - hard to find but lucky to keep. And don’t be naive. Kinda really wish it didn’t snow or rain soo much because the miserable weather definitely contributed to a slight bad experience. But again, make the most out of things right? So, just wear more and bring an umbrella.
After I came back, I’ve been put to work non-stop. I mean like working on Mother’s day, Victoria Day, weekends are a must, and to a point where I’m living a routine life. Working class? Something like that. And the hours are longgg.. I’m talking about anywhere from 9-11 hours every day. But if I enjoy it, I should have no problems. I can endure it, I’m sure of it, but I can’t stand people keep nagging every night about how much crap work I do for a crap pay. How I never get to spend time with anyone..which I do realize and apologize for. Who wouldn’t want to spend more time with loved ones? I miss church, I haven’t gone in so long.. I need healing. I see my church friends on facebook posting about planning events and I can’t join any of them.. it saddens me. And past week/end I wanted to hang out with some friends to celebrate a birthday. We had to go through so much schedule adjustments just so they could accommodate my hours.. I feel bad, really bad. But thankful that they care to include me and would be flexible.
I got a really bad burn from work the other day, I endured it and didn’t scream like a little girl. I put some burning cream on it and it felt a bit better the next day. But it’s been more than 5 days and the mark is still there.. it’s still swollen and painful.. and now a part of the skin peeled off when I took off the bandage..sigh, battle scar?
I’ve come to a point in life where I’m about to enter the next stage in my life now that I have graduated from school..possible forever. I’m uncertain and nervous for my future, I do wish my friends could go through this with me but they can only try so hard since most of them are still in school. And those that are doing internships..sigh well they’re making $20.75/ hour to be sitting in front of the laptop going on facebook. Pretty comfortable life, probably the ones my mom wishes me to have. But to me that’s not learning, that’s wasting my life. I’m sure they are enjoying it very much and I’m happy for them. A friend once told me, I’ve worked very hard and free at many places before, and if it wasn’t for that, I wouldn’t be where I am today. Those words stuck with me, they’re so inspiring and mature. And it really shows his passion for what he does. It’s true, talent can only take you so far, but passion is what will take you over and beyond.
So friends, keep working hard and always love what you do, but don’t forget the things and people that matter. I’m very very thankful to you all in my life, always cheering me up and giving me advice :)
