Oh how the time flies... Nowadays, it feels like days go by so quickly that I can hardly keep track on them. The spring is nearly here (well, minus twenty celsius this weekend, but it was sunny), but to me, instead of spring being a thing to expect, it is a thing to be dreaded. And not because of upcoming swimming suit season (don't you just hate the lady mags every year telling you how the bikini season is soon here, and with these diets/tips/exercises you will look great in one this summer?), but because the deadline for my master's seminar paper is on May, on top of other school work that needs to be done. It means that I need to have at least sixty pages of my master's thesis ready for commenting. Well, I met with my professor a couple of weeks ago and he asked me am I going to hire a ghost writer for my thesis since working at the gas station so much I won't have the time to make it myself. He was only kidding, of course, but there was truth there as well.... The fact is, I need to go to work in order to finance my studies. However, this winter I've been working very much because there has been a shortage of employees and I have been needed more than usually. I have made the extra shifts, but now I realised I must tell my boss I cannot do that anymore until June.
Well, that didn't go well with my boss. She was all rage! She cursed and told me they couldn't make it without me since there is no one else to do the work and on and on it went... Granted, I knew in advance what to expect, since my boss is not at all competent as a boss - she is the owners' daughter, and somehow she thinks she can talk to her employees as she likes, and if someone calls in sick, everybody will hear about that because she gets so mad about it. Anyway, I agreed to do all the shifts she had planned for me until week 11, but not after that. After all, I have been working there for six years now, the whole length of my studies, and always given in to them, but it would be time for me to graduate at last... I guess my boss thinks that I should own my whole life for them
Anyway, so I have been very stressed lately because of these things. Time goes too quickly...
