this week has probably been one of the worst weeks ive had for awhile. The weekend however was great!
The week was horrible because of work. Ive only been in this job for about 2 months and everything is still so foreign to me! i spent all week stressing out about not doing things the right way, not meeting my budgets, stuffing things up with the camera ect. As a result i barely slept all week, my skin has broken out and ive cried (to Jira) about 3 times. Im really not dealing with stress very well this year and i dont know why! Things never used to get to me the way they have been for the last 6 months. i think it mainly comes down to not having enough time off from work. continually working 60 something hours a week is wearing me down. (especially when i only get paid for 40! lol) ive actually had a few panic attacks this year which scared the crap out of me. something has gotta change. and soon.
However on a brighter note - i had a really nice weekend. On friday night i had planned to just bum around at a friends place but i ended up going out to a club and watching a bon jovi coverband with a friend, my brother and my cousin. My bro and i both had to work on saturday tho so we left in the middle of the show, but it was still nice to get out.
Saturday at work was actually really fun. we werent very busy so i didnt have to stress too much about the camera. I was working with two girls who are both hilariously funny and all day the three of us were in fits of laughter. i really should have told them to get back to work cos not much got done but after such a crappy week i was happy that i still remembered how to laugh! AND we got out on time! a miracle!
Sat nite, Jira and i went to dinner with my brother (i had originally invited him and his girlfriend in an attempt to get to know her a little better but she had plans with her family) and apart from the expensive meal, we had a really great time.
Today ive just tried to relax, tho ive been fighting the urge to panic about the coming week at work. This morning i slept in, then Jira and i went to a cafe with friends for breakfast. Then grocery shopping and an afternoon of computer time! DInner at mums tonight for the big brother eviction (a weekly event).
Hopefully the pleasantness (is that a word??? hehe) of the weekend will continue into the new week!
