Work n Not Much Play

This week took so long to complete itself. I did my first HOUR at my placement last Monday. Really, it was only an hour. My new boss was late. I waited upto 30mins in the hallway, outside his office, while it felt like certain bypassers where working some strange looks in my direction. To entertain my time I listened to my mp3 and tweeted my playlist… I know, sad!
I decided to head back to reception where someone could give him a call or ask around but the number they had for him was a deadend. I had the sudden urge to just leave and put it down to the fact I was there early and waited so long blah blah blah but I knew that would fall back on me in some way. So I sucked it up and headed to my tutor’s office, hoping she was in that day, to let her know that I had waited. I knew what was going to happen – I knew she was gonna give him a call to see where he was. Apparently he was at a school having a meeting then got stuck in traffic. It was around 3ish at that point and he asked me to wait up for him… He would be an hour!
I was a tad bit annoyed about it all because I don’t think he took the responsibility side of it very well ,yet the waiting was OK as I got to help myself to the machine that gives out free coffee, the vendor that gives out free snacks, listen to some more music while day-dreaming about the new iPod waiting for me at home (I signed off for a package as I was heading out.)

Back 2 Business!

Now that I’m busy and doing stuff I finally have something to blog about! Whew!

Story so far goes some like…
I’m back at college now, doing a course in Business Administration. The plans I had set failed miserable and made me miserable w/ it! So I had to work w/ the “system” and do something, anything!
The course will at least help w/ getting a decent job next year (fingers crossed), then I can get started on bigger things.

Been real tough. Had to fight w/ myself and my ways b/c I really do take things hard when it comes to accepting alternatives to my own. That comes w/ me wasting so much time and energy bringing everything down just to suit my miserable, pessimistic self – I’m awesome at that!

However, God leads me through so many battle fields and, as much as I highlight the struggles, worse case scenarios, and whatnot, He puts up w/ it and never punishes me for my insults and disrespect of His works. That’s the tolerance I dream about having, trust me!

I’m enjoying the course now. Huge things have blossomed from this new direction, including being offered to be a PA for a Senior Director at my college after only a month and a half of showing what I’m capable of in my studies. Definitely huge! It’ll start out as a placement while I continue studying, yet, will help me tremendously if/when I further my education next year and it’ll also give a great reference in terms of experience. I’m looking to work on advancing myself by building a solid network while there – so butt kissing… here I come! Lol.

My Plan is to…

… gain 2-3 degrees by the time I’m 30! =) No one is allowed to put me down and tell me I can’t do it – NO ONE!

Oh & yes it’s a little ambitious but totally doable. I worked it out. I wanna do Multimedia/Interactive Media, Youth Work (ministry) and Theater. At some point I will blend them all together for the greater good – Outreach to the youth of today!

So, as of Sat. 20th I will enrol for a foundation degree to get me started. It can take 1-2years to complete and then up to an additional 15mths for a full degree. I’ll be seeking a placement while studying to gain experience and work my behind off to make it permanent or enough for a great reference. THEN… I’ll be going straight into the next one while working in the field of the completed degree part-time and then when it’s time for a placement again, I seek one relating to what I’m currently studying. So hmmmm….. that’s another 2years give or take and by then I will be 27-28yrs old. If I decided to do the 2nd one part-time I’ll be realistic and add on a year meaning I’ll be 28/29. I COULD seriously be in the middle of my 3rd course by the time I’m 30!

Whew! This is going to be A LOT yet so what, right? A goal is better than one and to I’m not dumb, Just one degree will be great – there will be no disappoint if time or circumstances fail me. When I get started at something, I kinda become a workaholic, I’m dedicated especially when I’m passionate. This is just an outline plan of achievements, not so much a must-do. It is all possible… just sayin’. 🙂

I have been a “quitter” before at college when I took on my first ever course after school days. It was Media Studies and it turned out to be all types of media except of the one I was hoping to go into. I was bummed and unhappy there so I dropped out after completing the first year – still got a qualification with merits though. 🙂 I would call it quitting, just a misdirection? :-s

Then I went into full-time work and made my way up to Trainee Assistant Manager of a well-known sports fashion company but them some dodgy employees killed it for me by selling stock on the side and as management, we’ve got to take the fall too…

Went back to studying doing Technical Theatre but then got knocked up. THE END. That’s the light-hearted version – my life is full of drama surrounding these events but the past is past – YOU ARE ALL FORGIVEN NOW!

Oh, there was more I wanted to blog about but I’ve got mothering duties to attend to and then a heavy dose of reading.
