Another week has passed, another week of being bored out of my skull. For all of you that have grown weary of me complaining about my 'job' I have good news for you, Friday was my last day there!!!!!!!!!!! Yep, I went in on Friday morning and told my supervisor that it was my last day. Of course she asked why and I told her that being a full time student and working 32 hours just wasn't working for me. I explained to her that I have 2.5 years invested in my schooling and can be finished in the next 6-9 months if I hit it hard, which I can not do if I'm working.
I didn't tell her that the job was so boring that I felt like my brain was melting and that's the reason why I wouldn't be able to work and do school work at the same time. I'm sure there are lots of jobs that I could do and still get my school work done. But the stress of being constantly bored but always trying to find things to do so as to not get into trouble for just standing around was exhausting me mentally.
Weirdly enough she understood. She had gone to school (online) while working full time several years ago and told me that she knew just how difficult it was. Honestly I think she probably was thinking about how she must be smarter than me since she was able to pull it off, and I was throwing in the towel. But I was getting out of that place and didn't mind if she sat there all day telling herself how much better she is than me :)
I have had several conversations with our security guard about how boring it is there, he agreed whole heartedly. In fact, it's probably worse for him since he doesn't have any tedious office tasks to do, just sit on a stool and periodically walk around and go outside and walk the perimeter. I thought I had it bad!! And this guy speaks 6 languages, and he's stuck making $9.00 an hour as a security guard! Anyway, as I was walking out at 5 o'clock, Omar was right behind me, I told him to have a good weekend and he smiled at me and said "you have a good weekend, you've got your freedom now".
So with all of this going on I didn't care that I had a bad week, sodium and snacks had gotten the better of me. Didn't care if my weight was up a couple of pounds. I had gotten my freedom, nothing else mattered!! So let's get to the numbers.
Weight : 211.2
Gain : 0.2
Total : 106.0
I gained 2/10ths this week and I'm smiling :) I figured I was going to be up a couple of pounds and I'm not and I don't have to go to work on Monday. This has been a very good Saturday. Now I just need to do better next week and get some school work done, I've got no excuses now!!!
Have a super awesome weekend everybody!
