AAh~ I hope everyone's been well and survived the week so far...
How was your valentine's day? I spent it working at the cafe and then staying home to watch various documentaries on youtube. I think I also slept on the couch, which is not bad if you have 2 plushy blankets and a low level hum from the laptop... I shouldn't have left the lights on the whole night though...
It was an interesting week. And I learned that I did truly have a limited resource in terms of time and energy. And however much I'd love to do everything, it is painfully clear that I cannot. At least, not now. Also even the tiniest bit of alcohol or a bit too much food reallly saps the energy from your brain and body to er... nowhere apparently. I have decided I really cannot have any alcohol during the week... but maybe a little during the weekend is okay... I like being in control of my senses... And am also a lightweight when it comes to... purified substances.
I also do think I am losing a little bit of weight from my cafe job, which is nice. It's like being paid to smile and work out at the same time. And the job is getting easier the more I do it. Getting into the groove is important.. Picking up information and working that into patterns is helpful. And when the boss is happy, I'm happy. I've also learned it is incredibly important to be on time, every time. Not gonna make that mistake again. But yes, learning is good. Working immediate responses to customers, work processes, orders etc. is very good. Building good relationships in the work place is also extremely good. And vital.
My first and foremost want is to be a blessing to the people I work for, to care and give help where appropriate and needed. To ease up any burdens within the space given me and to ultimately share the love I've experienced in all I do, regardless of where I am or what my job is. It is not easy learning, and I'm glad God has given me ample opportunity to smooth out rough edges, and to learn to love others and think for their good rather than just fixate on my own wants and needs. So in whatever is set before me, be it art or manual labor, or just chatting with a friend or stranger... I do all with one focus and goal, that interestingly can take many shapes and forms, depending on situation.
Hmm... I sure hope in the midst of all this I will get my butt into gear... I'm supposed to be working on getting my personal portfolio website up and in running order... and in *gasp* Dreamweaver (I am possibly masochistic)... But I have been distracted by many documentaries on youtube... and tumblr... and... and whatever time I've spent here... writing this instead of working.... hmm.... with the website ever get completed? Stay tuned after this commercial break to find out~
