It’s been great being home with the fam..I’m sad that the weekend is over so fast. Headed back tomorrow :[.
I wanted to reflect on some of things I’m thankful for..then thought that it would probably be better to share my Thanksgiving prayer from my P&W because I felt like it could express ways I’ve felt touched.
40oz to freedom?? Lol jk more like 40hrs of slaving away :T lol BML!!!! :D
I guess it’s been a while since I’ve had a real update. I had started to feel burnt out, so I decided to go home to LA last minute last week and had a great time recharging mostly with fam and a few friends. My sister and baby cousin drove me back up, so the fun extended into the weekend!! Honestly, the past few weeks have been a blur…both in a good and bad way…but I’m happy to say that I feel blessed to finally start working again (for longer than just a week)!
My friends wanted to celebrate selling my soul to 40 hour weeks with 40’s last night lol, so we visited our old stomping ground, Raleigh’s, for ‘ol time’s sake (and no, we didn’t have 40’s lol). Felt fun revisiting old times :] though I’m also glad to move onto greater things in my life.
I was on call today for the Port of Oakland because of the Occupy Oakland strike/march that’s pretty much closing down the city and terminating at the Port. Turns out they didn’t need me…but I’m actually a little curious to take a peak in observing their efforts. We’ll see..
Decided that I’m gonna do errands and relax for the rest of the day before I officially start working full time tomorrow at a construction firm called, ARB Inc. Mostly doing database management. It’s a temp position until at least the end of the year and kinda open-ended thereafter depending on whether I want to stay if they offer me a permanent position after re-assessing needs.
I’m excited to start working again and having a schedule and feeling productive. It’s been weird finding organizing my free days and practicing self-discipline to be a challenge. I appreciated the time off though to do some personal reflection and enrichment. Time to get back on the grind….volunteer, shadow, start working on my grad school apps…@___@.
I look forward to earning and saving again! Lol..funny to be so excited for that..I guess this is growing up…
