We won't run....(we can fight)

This week has been the shittiest week in my working history. Gah. Ups and downs, right?!? A colleague went on leave and passed on some of his work to me. With no explanation of what needed to be done, or the fact that the deadline for the item to be on the last agenda of the year was only 2 days away. Or, more importantly, that I had to write 3 fucking reports in the space of 1 1/2 days (when you usually have a week or more to do the reports). Grrrr. I did it. And it took me 2 days, staying in the office till 7pm then going home, skipping my exercise routine and continueing to work until 2am. And then hit repeat for the next day. So it was inevitable that I would have a minor breakdown. I was stressed, emotional, had barely any sleep and had two different people checking the reports and contradicting each other. Which just meant I had to keep changing my reports. Great. Not even my fucking reports, people.

After a cry, I was better though. A little cry does work wonders.

And in light of the above, I thought I deserved a "Good" list (screw the evil, I don't need that shit!!)

    Your post reminds me why I'm dreading getting a full time job...being a student and working art time works for me - except when it comes to wanting enough money for miu miu ;)

    I used to have a 450d, it was the best camera. I had to sell it though...i really regret it..

    In response to your comment, no i hadn't seen the black topshop boots...and now i wish i hadn't looked them up!! <33

    I loved the voice on that girl. I always wished I could sing but nature was not generous in any musical form with me apart from the fact that I adore music. Today might be a possible shopping day for me. Now that makes me happy. Hope all is well with you and summer is treatin' you allright dear.

    Stompface said...

    oh I am feeling your pain about work.
    mine has been hectic too.
    and all kinds of things going wrong causing me to not be able to do work, even though it is not my fault. no support from anyone on fixing it. doing managements work, dramas dramas dramas. and on top of that overtime, and all whilst I have a really bad cold.

    lets quit and start a company/get rich quick scheme together.

    that could be and would be amazement! do you hear me amazement!

    if you buy those shoes, i will be as jealous as some kind of creature that is really jealous of you in those shoes.
    buy buy buy! hot hot hot!

    I hope you discovered the loch ness monster below.
    I know its on the down low.

    It is good to rhyme

    Oh ranty ranty ranty. Lets all live in a beach shanty and become gypsies and grow our beards long and stop bathing.


    p.s we must catch up soon. we are both in p town after allll!

    What makes me happy?

    Hearing from you. How are things? I'm getting more and more used to the new place, granted I miss Miami way more when waking up to a cold morning..hahah, but that's what coffee is for. And right now, I'm fresh off a quick trip to NYC-- to sum it all up--was a total BLAST!

    Talk soon!

    Dude, Jeffrey Campbell is like the pimp master of shoes. Let their awesomeness soothe you and take your cares away.

    But seriously, I cried my first MONTH at my new job everyfuckingday. It sucked but sooner or later, you stop caring. Let's all quit our jobs and become Somali pirates.
