To Fast

I seem to work to fast. Every day i tend to do butt loads more work than anyone else in here. It may be my impeccable touch typing skills, that have put me at the fore front of work productivity. It may just be that i work constantly all day long, don’t stop for chit chat very often. All i know is that i work to fast for a public servant. So to make me work slower, i have come up with some ideas that might help me to slow down.

1. Find the date in my lifetime that doesn’t use the same number more than once in the following date format. dd/mm/yyyy

2. Type emails to my sister in lauggane all oevr the palec. It is fun and tmie cnuomsing.

3. Type Blog entries (alas this was written at work).

4. Stare out the window, or stare at the screen, pretending to do work.

These things are all counter productive, but seeing as most other people around here aren’t doing as much work as me, well i guess i can slack off for the last month of my employment. In the end all the work gets done anyhow. You may think that i am big-noting myself, well i suppose i am. Nothing wrong with it in the right place. So stop your whining.

Bored

What is your definition of bored?

This is mine ” No Internet,  No work, No food or on a deserted island with no coconuts.”

Tell me what your’s is.

Baffled

This cracks me up. I regularly have to enter forms of peoples personal details for work. Its my job really. The thing that crackes me up the most is, well the question.

Australian Citizen (insert date here)

Most people that are born in Australia leave it blank. The odd 1 or 2 fill it in. Most of the time they put, “Birth” or something to that effect. Now i don’t deal with the lower end of our society, i deal with people who take our lives into their own each and every single day. How the hell do you not have the common sense not to put anything in that box if you were born in the figgin’ country! Common sense people. Common. Sense. I guess some people aren’t that lucky

Jess:

Its all sunshine Lollipops and Rainbows

You wouldn’t think it looking at me. But I’m close to the edge of Clinical Depression. It isn’t an easy thing to write about, far from it. I don’t take it lightly either, it sucks. I think it has started about 3 weeks ago. Do the maths. Yep, when i broke up with Lauren. Even though i was the person doing the breaking, it still hurt. I shut myself down, didn’t talk to anyone, do anything. I basically become a walking mummy. I felt heartless, cold and distant. I was bored with everything and couldn’t even be bothered to put up a fight when people were trying to make me angry. I’m a person that normally over thinks situations, in the last few months i have stopped even doing that.

Sure things haven’t been perfect at home. With Dad getting cancer, and moving home again, and deciding to move overseas for at least 6 months, working 6 days a week for cash. It has been hard. My response to all of this has been to shut down, and not talk. Sure my family want me to talk, i feel though that it is hard to talk to them about things. Not that i don’t want to but because well it is just weird. Living in Perth isn’t the easiest either, it is a real small town clicky feel. So making good mates that you can talk too is hard. One mate that i would normally discuss things with has just moved over to Belgium to study. I also have lost my previous support network after moving over here to Perth. Basically the last 5 years have been the most moving, changing jobs, travelling, life decisions that i have ever had to make. I think it has just all started to catch up with me, thus being on the edge of Clinical Depression. I’m not there yet. So the meds aren’t being issued as yet.

Basically Dr Julia is checking my Iron levels, cause i look pale and am loosing weight. Then she wants to see me next week to see how I’m going. She did recommend some things like regular exercise, eating better, drinking less alcohol (not happy about that) etc. So already i feel better.

It’s funny what people’s perceptions of you are, cause today we had a group of new people being shown around the office. One of the girls remarked that i looked friendly cause i was smiling. I thought to myself “ha, if only she knew what i was told yesterday”. We then continued to talk about the great view from my window.

So that about fills you in on what is happening with my mental health at the moment. Hopefully discussing this will make other people feel the confident to talk about there problems as well. i know that it is just the start of a loong road for me, but one i hoping will get better as time goes on.

Ooher Another blog

I have started up another blog, it is in combo with my sister that is travelling with me. It doesn’t mean that im going to neglect this one, on the other hand i’ll write more general entries in this one.

The other blog kickthehorse.com is a travel blog, so expect some cool stories and photos up there. It is just getting underway, so until we leave on the 15th November there might not be to much info, just keep checking though. I’ll try and update it as frequently stuff happens.

And another one bites the dust

What tragic week for Australia. 2 Favour Sons have died. Earlier in the week it was Steve Irwin. On firday it was Peter Brock. For those that don’t like motor racing, he was a legend of the sport. He won the Bathurst 1000, 9 times. (Its a car race over 1000km/ 500 miles, non-stop with 2 drivers)Competed in everything, and was a truly awesome man. He was 61. It is totally shocking to me that someone with 30 years professional driving experience, can die by loosing control of his car and crash into a tree. It is a sad mood over the whole of Australia at the moment. Wether you are sad because of Steve Irwin, or Peter Brock. 2 legends, one week. Life sucks. At least they died both doing what they loved.

Well…lets see what has been happening!

Well a lot has been going on in the last few weeks. I got a job. I’m working for the government. It is a great job, great view of the river, pretty good pay, and talk about location. I’m in the second tallest building in the city, whooo!!! It is only a temp job, just to get me money, so i can save for Canada.

I have gone and come back from Melbourne. It was a fun trip with jess. We have decided on the location that were are going to be working in. We are going to kicking horse resort. It is situated in Golden, BC. So plan now, and you can come visit me! I’m going to be working on the lifts and Jess is going to be working at Guest services. I can’t wait, I’ve started looking at weather gear. Seeing as i have never seen snow fall, snow boarded, been on a lift, looked at powder, been on a snow board. I’m am looking forward to having a whale of a good time. We have started up a new travel blog, kickthehorse.com. I have just set it up on the new hosting (Thanks Claire) asmallorange.com. It is pretty good and cheap. SO if you need a little bit of hosting, let me know and we can work something out ;P.

Lets see what else happened. I broke up with Lauren.;( It was a hard thing to do. I don’t like seeing people upset. In the end we are still friends, and hopefully things can remain that way. I won’t go into details, cause, well this isn’t the place for that. I can say however that i did enjoy going out with her, and she is an awesome chick. The next guy that comes along will be a lucky man.

I managed to put my new camera on lay-by the other week, I’m sooo excited. I’m jumping around like a little girl over a just baked cup cake. It is going to be awesome fun to learn how to use. It is a Nikon D70s with 18-70mm lense.

Other than that, not much is going down. I’m working 6 days, and things are saving up nicely. I get stressed out to see if I’m going to be able to save up enough money. It is quite hard to relax at times. So all monetary gifts are welcome 🙂

Hope your all well, except for colds and the like.

Sorry for not writting sooner, i didn’t die honestly. You might have noticed that my site was down for a bit. I’m having to find a new host, as the guy that is hosting me can’t afford it anymore. So if you have some hosting you want to give away, pls email me.

I’m well, i will fill you all in on what has been happening over the last weeks another time, just wanted you to know im alive and well.
