What I've learnt about life so far

So I’ve lived for 21 years now, which is a pretty decent amount of time to learn a few things in. Today I am going to share with you a few things that I’ve learnt about life.
  • Being too strict or regimented is no fun. Whether it be exercise, eating, work or whatever, letting one thing rule your life is not healthy and can drain a lot of the fun out of life.
  •  I shouldn’t be ashamed about what I like to do or what I believe in. If it’s benefitting me then who cares what other people/society thinks.
  • Continuous mental engagement is super important.
  •  I’ll never be like Blake Lively (body-wise, fashion-wise, looks-wise). But that’s ok, she’s probably highly overrated and not as cool as me anyway ;)
  • I’ve been given a lot in life. Lots of people are worse off than me and I should try to never forget that.
  •  You meet heaps of people in life, but there are only a few who stick by you. Everyone needs those sorts of people in their life so treating them well is absolutely essential.
  •  It’s true what they say about exercise being a great way to unwind. When I finish work on a Friday, all I can think about is going to the gym.
  • There are some things in life that are totally worth sticking with despite warnings. Like chocolate, for instance.
  • You’ll meet some people in life who you don’t click with. It’s not you, it’s not them. The combination just doesn’t work.
  • There is nothing wrong with being picky.

Work life

So while in my last post I was all happy with life, it is of course not the case that all areas of life are amazing. 

I like my new job. It’s interesting, challenging and busier than my previous one. There’s just one thing that’s getting in the way of it being super awesome. And that’s a co-worker. From my very first day here she’s been the least friendly towards me and I feel like I’m constantly doing things wrong. Sure, she says hi and ‘have a good weekend’ and all that, but it’s always uneasy and forced when we talk. She’s just one of those people I can’t bond with, no matter how hard I try. And unfortunately she’s my direct superior and the one I work closest with. Even though my previous role here was boring, I was happier because I was around people that I could joke with and be myself around. And she’s the only one in the entire office that’s harder to get along with. I love everyone else, they’re great!
She constantly shoots down story ideas that I come up with and takes lots on herself rather than delegating to me, and then complains about being ‘soooo busy’. And she makes me feel like I’m really useless at what I do. She doesn’t critique my writing as much anymore (thank goodness) but there are all these other, subtle things that just make me feel crap. Like today after we went to print she told me I had to go and get a new photo for this one shop that advertises with us. I said to her that the client had told me to repeat the last photo then she was like “No, you need to get a new one. Take the initiative, that’s the one they always use.” Like how am I supposed to know, having never dealt with this client before, that they always use that photo? And if the client wants to repeat something, that’s what we do.  But it’s more just the way she talks to me. It’s not friendly at all, it’s harsh and patronizing and I feel like she hates my guts and would rather work alone.
You know how females do it, they make little snide remarks and comments that get under your skin and make you feel stink rather than confront you straight up. This situation is no different. She’ll laugh and joke with everyone else in the office, but never me. Though I guess the same goes for me, as I just can’t with her. It’s not a big, obvious thing, and no one else in the office probably notices anything. But it’s definitely there. And it sure cuts.
I hope and pray that things will get better. We’ve only been working together for a while, so still getting to know each other and stuff. But if not, I don’t know what I’m going to do :(

Those moments you're just like YES

I love those days and moments when you're just like YES cause things are going well. I had a day like that on Sunday. I was back in Hastings for the 22nd birthday of my best friend. I love going back to Hastings, especially in summer. It's where a lot of my favourite people reside and in summer the weather is beautiful and they have the best summer fruit and there's lots of lovely things to do outside whilst soaking up the sun.

So anyway, I had a lovely lunch surrounded by lovely people, then bought some deliciously juicy strawberries from the strawberry patch and chilled back with friends before driving back to Palmy. Even the drive there and back was good because I had new music on my ipod and a new car that is super smooth to drive. Ahhhh bliss.

I got to spend time with this gorgeous birthday girl, which is always a pleasure:
