A London Bridge
This morning I woke up at 3:35 AM. Worked from 5AM-3:30PM and went to eat and drink Fantasia with my honey then went home to go to evening mass with the parentals.
Work was good, I work with some cool people. Tiring though, being on my feet for 10 hours a day.
At church, I was so tired that I couldn’t find the speaker in the front. The only person I could see was the priest until I slowly scanned the stage and saw the guy reading. At one point, I bumped elbows with my mom and all I could think about is that schoolhouse rock song about elbow room. Like who teaches kids to leave elbow room? Why can’t we all just love each other and be close? Why is it so taboo to bump elbows with people? Was that song really about leaving elbow room, though…? Yeah, I don’t really pay attention in church..
Anyway, GOODNIGHT WORLD !!! I’m soooo tired right now. I’m gonna have a long long long sleep so I am revived to play with my nieces tomorrow.
The other day, I went out of the house without 1. Makeup and 2. A purse. Its been a while since I have done that.
I usually feel like my face looks bitchier and angrier when I dont have makeup on. My mom immediately said, “Put on some lipstick, you look sad.” Since working at the damn makeup department at Macys last winter I have been using liquid cc cream and eyeliner and eyeshadow and mascara and blush and brow liner…. but since the day I went out with no makeup, its been easier to go back to putting on just face sunblock and a light powder on my face without all the extras. I feel fresher and healthier.
I have to carry a purse because of my damn fat phone and small ass pockets. It was strange but very liberating. I didnt have to worry about whacking people (Kelvin mostly) and things or the strap falling off my shoulder. I need more things with larger pockets hahaha.
So an update on my life: I am “ending” my “part time” position at Lions Center for the Blind. Quotes to be explained shortly. So I recently got a manufacturing tech position as a contractor on the site at Thermo Fisher Scientific in Pleasanton. It isnt my dream job let me be honest but when I got offered the position after what was hardly an interview process, I realized I cant not take the opportunity to get my foot in the door of a huge biotech company ! I mean this company is amazing and I have been following their work for about 2 years now. They are very well known and to be in a tech position really is an honor.. thus I put in a resignation letter for LCB. It was tough because LCB is very dear to my heart-from what they do to the people they serve to the people who work there. They actually also offered me a full time position with higher pay than now but I turned it down for TFS because I just couldnt pass the opportunity. I have been working super hard at LCB, I have practically been working 40 hours a week for the past month and a half, so I felt like I was a full time employee. I have been working so hard that it not only is hard to give up my position, they really dont wanna let me go. So we agreed that I would work on one of my days off from TFS. Since my schedule there is soo whack (5am-330pm wed-sat), I would have time in my 3 days off to come in at least once for a few hours. Boss lady doesnt want me to convert back to volunteer so shes keeping me on the payroll. Its a win win really. I would still be able to build the volunteer program and work in the science field. My two passions. I hope I wont get too burnt out working 48 hour weeks but once I get myself used to the schedule, I am sure I will be just fine. I have made great friends at LCB and we went out for a celebratory dinner today. It was supposed to be a goodbye dinner/congrats on the new job, but it turns out to be a glad-you-were-rehired dinner/congrats on the new job hahaha.
Spent my Monday on the waters in Sausalito and with this here cute cat !
Allergies go crazy, though. *sneezing*
1. You suck. :p
2. I’m glad you’re still with me.
Today I went for a jog next to the beach. Nothing beats jogging in the sea breeze.
