My First Week Of Work
Sunday, November 05, 2017
I apologize for not being active on Spark these days...last week was my first week of work for my new job. I am in the process of being trained, and it has been overwhelming, and stressful. But overall, though, I like my job. :) Almost all of the people that I work with are wonderful, which I am grateful for. I just have no time now! :P I'm up at 5 am, and I come home at 6 pm, and then I have to go to bed at 9 pm (since I have to get up early the next day). So, I really only have about 3 hours of free time each day, and I still have to eat dinner, do my chores, etc. But please note that I HAVE been reading my Sparkblog subscriptions--I just haven't had time to comment on them. So, sorry about that.
I'm so glad, because I have this Friday off, since Saturday is a holiday. Yay for 4 day work weeks! :)
Also, I have the option to work 9 hours a day, and get every other Monday or Friday off, which I am highly interested in, because this way, I can schedule all my doctor appointments on my days off, so I won't have to take time off of work. I have A LOT of doctor appointments, as I am not healthy. This type of work schedule is called a "Compressed Work Schedule" for the federal government.
Anyway, working full time has been kind of a shock to me, as I have been in school all my life until this point. I am slowly adapting to sleeping less, and having no free time. :P
I am so excited for Christmas!!! I don't know if I will go Black Friday shopping on Thanksgiving this year (which is a tradition), because I have to wake up early the next day. But I'll probably go Black Friday shopping on the actual Friday after work, so that's good. I'm already listening to Christmas music! :P
Since November is the first full month I will be working, I gave my mom $500 on Friday for this month's rent; I usually give her $300, but since I am working now, I told her I can afford to give her more, and she was shocked, and extremely grateful. I'm so happy! :D
