So I'm tired of data entry. It's so mind-numbing day after day, the last few turn overs of people I've been working with have a poor "lazy" attitude and when I try to bring it to the attention of work-coordinators or my supervisor, they're more worried about me stepping on toes just because the WC says "I don't see evidence of that" and I brought up concrete examples of trends in work habits that make our quality of work less manageable.
Everyday after work I feel so drained and when the weekend hits I also don't really want to do anything... Which is a habit I need to break as it's affecting some cooperative commitments I've made
Ah well, I'm done with the office work environment and am making my transition/preparations to move into the trades!! Gonna go through Women Building Futures
Just from going over what I get passionate about whether at work or at home, I love to make things!!
The creation of practical yet attractive tangible end products that people will find useful~!
I made procedure manuals at work used throughout the department, I made clothes and art at home, I craft, I cook etc.
So a move into the trades (specifically welding) is a great and positive move for me, especially at this point in life ^^ Although it's never too late technically
Since I've been together with my lovely bf for the past four years I've been hermiting quite a bit. The most people interaction I get is bf, mum, work and some interaction online. I miss seeing more people and going out dancing weekly. After being out of the loop for so long, bars/clubs make me nervous again, makes me feel like i'm 21 again but with more knowledge of how to deal with unwanted attention. I don't really know the staff when I go out to places I used to haunt too.
Plans to change that though is to pick up a part time job serving from a "beer tub"! I just got my ProServe license back in Dec 2013 but haven't been able to use it yet, the employment I originally obtained it for never really contacted me when 2014 started due to management changes but whatever!
Figure throwing myself back into "service" and "face-to-face" type employment will help me handle my anxiety/mood swings better
That and my "coping code" for when I get upset have been thrown out of whack for various reasons.
Interacting with more people will hopefully balance it out? Not sure, still working things out... But at least I've been able to recognize certain things tho I need several days to process what I go through. Yayy self-reflection!!
So in conclusion of this little update, my current goals include: Enter the trades before 2014 is out; Craft/Sew more before summer; Socialize more; Manage time better.
