It has been a hectic week, with me starting BEDA and also starting a new job.
It’s only the 4th of the month and I’m already struggling a bit to blog every single day, but it’s a good exercise and I already committed to doing this so LET’S GO! This week is mostly a lot of feelings.
As a student, I was always SUPER involved with extracurricular activities. Now that I’ve graduated, I find that channeling some of that energy into alumni activities is really fun. My school’s honors program is starting its own alum program, which is long overdue, and I got so excited at the brainstorming kickoff event. I can’t wait to be more involved and to bring together fellow alums!
Blush Med institute
I attended an event at Blush Med Institute, where I basically got to do a trial run of their services. I got a skin consultation, where the dermatologist used this fancy machine to confirm my statement of “I have true combination skin – oily T-zone and dry cheeks” by using some light to show my T-zone with orange spots and my cheeks with white spots whaaaaat. SORCERY!
I also got a short facial (mmm), a massage (mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm), an LED light treatment, and microdermabrasion. ALSO Tout de Sweet was kind enough to provide their DELICIOUS and SUPER COLORFUL macarons. (Photos to come later!) It was a really relaxing afternoon and I was really in need of that before my first day of work. Plus, all of the staff was so incredibly nice! Love love loved it, I highly recommend their membership to anyone in the area.
Having a Schedule
I won’t sugar-coat it for you: I was going pretty crazy during the interim period between my old job and my new job. Every day, I lazed around, with no specific goals after I got hired, and no agenda for any given day except attempting to clean my room (hahahahahaha) (ahem).
Now, not only do I have, essentially, a concrete purpose every day, I have a very set schedule. Start times, end times, meeting times.
This is the stuff I live for. I love having things planned ahead of time.
Having regular social interactions
Again, being at home alone was killing me. I’m an extroverted person most of the time, so my extremely limited social interaction was actually draining me. Talking to my new coworkers and going to happy hour to just unstress and laugh with other people is what recharges me. I like being surrounded by people. And since it’s orientation, almost all of the people are SMILING AT ME that’s awesome.
I have a really long commute (1.5 – 2 hours each way…) so finally making it home is a really beautiful feeling, even though I’m completely BEAT when I do.
NOT the HIMYM Series Finale
But maybe the fact that no one else seems to have liked it either. I do really like many of the posts that have popped up as a result of this shared disappointment. I will tell you all about it really soon!
Tell me about your week! We need to catch up 🙂
