eat eat eat... and more eating!

I feel so full and so fat rite now... yet my hand just keeps reaching for the bowl next to me filled with yummy chocolate coated nougat.... I am so bad!!!... I hate myself...

All I have done today is eat... I didn't know that every Friday at work each department organises "real" morning tea... today was hot meat pies, sausage rolls and cheesies... I had 3 pieces... (let me just add that they were not mini ones!!!)... so that was at 11am this morning... but then I totally forgot that I had agreed to join my colleagues for a leaving lunch that they had been planning for this lady that was leaving today coz she is having a baby... so we went to a restaurant called royal india... which is a very nice walking distance from the office... I swear I could not have eaten more for lunch in my whole entire life... we all ordered this dish that had little samples of everything... and by the time I was through them all... my stomach was literally at bursting point... I felt so sick... and so close to throwing up I swear... anywho I felt so guilty coz tonite I am going to dinner with my whole uni course as a kind of farewell dinner.. before we graduate... and this bloody thing is gonna be like a 3 course meal!... ughhh... I feel so gross just thinking about it... and that is only 1 hour away... I don't even think I am gonna fit into the dress I was going to wear... I am so depressed...

day 2...

just got back from "work"... haha... how funny that sounds... anywho... today was my second day... and already I feel like I have been there for a long time... I think I underestimated how good this job is for me... I really felt like I knew what I was doing... at least part of the time... I am learning a lot and it feels pretty good... I know that by the end of this week I will feel great and on top of things (hopefully)... I can't wait till I know exactly what I am doing...

I'm getting to know everyone slowly... the ppl there are really nice... and really friendly... they all seem to want to know me... I don't think that I could ask for more than what I have... and somehow I don't really believe that these ppl are any less perfect than those people at the work experience lab...

yea... I just realised that I feel really content with my life at the moment...

(well... except for the few kilos I have gained over the past exam period and how impossible it will b for me to lose them coz of all the yummy biscuits they serve at work!... *sigh*) I guess if u can't beat them... join em...

first day on the job...

I am so tired... I think my brain has overloaded... I think I feel sick... and sitting here right now pigging out on a box of cheddar shapes is NOT HELPING!!!...

hmm... let me see... my first day was.... how shall I say it... draining... and overwhelming... I think I was anticipating a clone of the lab that I had grown to love on my work experience... well... it kinda was... but about 10 times bigger!... I donno... I felt like a little ant... the ppl there were friendly and introduced themselves and all... but it just wasn't the same... I never had the chance to properly talk to each of them and get to know them.... but then again... it is only my first day after all... I'm sure it will get better... I just feel like I'm never gonna learn the ropes there... it was so much easier back at the work experience lab...

anyway... I guess I shouldn't be too hard on myself... it is only my very first day on my very first "real" job... I should be happy that I even got this job considering that the majority of students in my course is out and about in search for one and that trying to land one now is next to impossible... I am happy... I think it is just a kind of culture shock... hehe...

nahhh I'm sure it will get better... especially when that paycheck comes my way... there are so many things I want to lay by its not funny.. can't wait to finally be able to literally shop till I drop... =)))

absolutely pooped....

have just gotten back from a whole day of shopping with my boyfriend... I have bought so much stuff... I should feel good since this is the first time I have bought anything since... well since I got broke... but I am just too tired for words... I bought 5 shirts, 1 pair of black pants and 1 pair of nice comfy shoes for my new job on Monday... I am so excited and anxious to start... I hope that it will be what I expect...

really wanted to go out tonite... but think will just stay home and watch tv... or SLEEP!

goodbye exams forever!!!

I have just come home from my final exam that I will ever have to do... I can't quite describe the feeling... its mixed emotions really... relieve... joy... drained... sad...

...er.. scrap that last one...

I guess it still hasn't sunken in yet... that I have truly completed my degree (short of failing... *knock on wood*) ... and that I can now be an ABSOLUTE bum for the next 2 days before I start my new job...

I can't believe how sweet life is at the moment... I think I mite just ride it for as long as I can... ;)

last day of prac exams

It is now nearly 10am... nearly time to get ready for my absolutely last prac exam forever!... I am pretty happy that its the last one I will have to do.. and I am so anxious to get it over and done with... its pretty frustrating... but at the same time... I am sooo unprepared!... I am worried... I think it will not be easy... but as always... I only have myself to blame... I hope that I have done enough study to pass at least... I can't stop thinking about the job... I try not to... but its so hard... I think I am getting my hopes up too high... I hope either way she lets me know by tomorrow...

O well... guess I better read some more stuff before going... wish me luck... I'll need heaps of it!!!

    restless restless

all over red rover!

I am so very very relieved that the interview has now been and gone... I just got home... I was so worried about the whole day.. even through my biochem prac exam I was thinking about the bloody interview... all I thought about was what if I couldn't answer the questions they asked me... I was very scared... I got to the place half an hour early and just worried myself silly waiting (and slowly boiling) in the car... when it was finally time to come out... I went to the reception desk and they told me to wait in the waiting room... it was such a flash place... I was surprised at how nice it was... anyway after what seems like forever I had to fill out an application form and wait some more... finally (I reckon I must've waited for about 15 minutes) the lady I spoke to yesterday came and met me... she seemed nice but I sensed a snottiness about her.. anyway I followed her up to her office... and then 2 gentlemen came in and sat down aswell!... I got so panicked at this stage... I thought it would be a panel interview... but anyway as we went on... in turns out they were just there to give me some info on the job itself... in fact I was doing all the question asking... it turned out to be a nice and relaxed interview and I was pleased that I got through it... I am refusing to get my hopes up (from experience) but I think I did ok... dont stop crossing those fingers just yet ok?!?!

I just had to share this with anyone out there who is reading this rite now... do u know how long I've been waiting for this!?! I took the liberty of sending out my resumes last week to various labs and hospitals... and I sooo did not expect to hear from anyone for like yonks... so this was definitely not expected... I was caught completely off guard... I must've sounded so dorky on the phone coz I was so nervous!!!... I was struggling to get the words out of my mouth... what will happen tomorrow?? I've never been to an official interview before... I'm soo unbelievable nervous... please please please let it go well... I got to do my biochem prac exam before then and all I will be thinking about is the interview now... mannn...
