went to my new work to get some paperwork to fill in about my bank details etc, and was greeted by the receptionship with a cheery, "hi jade! we're all excited to have you start here!" hello, nervousness. the realisation that everyone is anticipating my arrival there both scares me and touches me. i'm scared they have such high expectations of me. i'm scared i won't be able to live up to them. after all, i have no experience in this type of thing. what made them think i could do the job best out of all the other people they interviewed? yet, strangely enough, i think i'm going to enjoy working there. 3 more days.
next it was off to flight centre to have a chat with an old [favourite] co-worker, and get information about snow-trips and flights to melbourne. i want a holiday... oh wait, i just got back from one. oops. maybe this weekend in june will work out; marianne mentioned she was also going to melbourne in june for a weekend, but alas, it's a different weekend. that could have been fun. following this, i went to marion, spent too long at rebel [former work] talking to everyone, had a drink with marianne when she finished work, got more beauty product samples (more from lancome and estee lauder), changed the watch band on the watch russ gave me for christmas as it was too big and had everyone in the jewellry shop exclaim over how small my wrist was, brought sparkleoflife's baby shower present and easter eggs for the family, and ate disappointing chinese food for dinner.
came home, got the third degree from mum (grrr), rang russ and woke him up, and now i'm anti-social and not in the mood to talk to anyone really. i really think it's time for sleep. hooray.
on another note, i've come to the conclusion that i need to stop trying to scam samples from cosmetics sales people, but damn it's fun ;)
