I haven’t been very creative lately. When I was looking for a job I always felt that I had to keep doing some kind of project or I wouldn’t be trying hard enough. I didn’t want to feel like I had given up, like I wasn’t giving all I had. I felt guilty doing nothing. Now that I have a little bit more security in my life I can enjoy not having to do anything. It’s something I haven’t been able to do in a long time.
It’s been 3 months since I started my new job and I am happier then I’ve been in years. In the job I had before this one, people started to know me as grumpy and irritable. I didn’t realize I had become that person or why. Now I understand that it was the environment I was in. It was that place that made me unhappy. Everything I feared in getting a new job was what I was living already.
It’s so refreshing to work with people that are good at their job. It’s so great to have a manager that takes their job seriously and treats every concern like an immediate problem that needs to be taken care of. I think I can learn a lot from my current manager. My old manager would treat us like we were being bratty children that were tattling on each other when we voiced a concern about our co-workers. He ignored every confrontation he could until that place become intolerable. Everybody got away with whatever they wanted. The people here, for the most part, have a mutual respect for each other.
Now that I am not doing dishes for hours everyday or constantly dipping my hands in sanitizer water, I can finally enjoy my nails. I’ve always thought of them as a gift from my grandmother. She always had perfect nails.
This week I did my nails to represent Easter, which is coming up this weekend. I used pastel colors and designs that you might decorate your Easter eggs with! This is my new obsession so you will probably be seeing more nail art in the future. Till then, (for those of you that celebrate) Happy Easter.
