This is the first summer that I am working all the way through, pretty much without any real days off, funny how you start to treasure the odd national holidays here and there. It is also something I haven't done at this work place for over a year now, and it's fun to see the little faces each morning again and to be greeted by appreciative parents and caregivers for the break they will receive while they leave their little once in our care. It makes all the difference to work with people that want to be there, it just shows you how the mood of others can effect you, in a positive or negative way. I can honestly say that even though its been very busy and like I said without any real days off, there hasn't been a day in the last few months where I didn't want to go to work. It's nice to go to work with a smile, even though you know your desk is covered with work and you probably don't get everything done that needs to be done. Some things never change, but those are personality traits and personal insecurities that live inside of people, as they do in all of us in one way, shape or form. I find if you don't have an agenda, everything really goes smoothly and doesn't cost you any grief. I have responsibilities I never had before and I mastered them all so far, even though in the beginning I was a little bit afraid of them and intimidated, but I love learning and I love doing new things, and yes they are a challenge at times, but that's what makes it fun. For the most part I can set my own schedule around pre-scheduled times, I know some things I still need to work on to come into my own, but it's nice to be yourself and not be afraid that someone will take advantage of your weak points, but build on your strong points instead. I can actually say I love my job and I look forward to work every day, even though I am tired and exhausted.
Another thing I miss is hanging out with my non donkey friends and have coffee once in a while, but I am sure there will be time for it sooner or later again.
Hope everybody is enjoying their summer and is happy with whatever they do or don't do! :) Sometimes making stuff up as one goes along cuts down on the boredom of one's life. :) Ta ta for now.:)
