|11:43 am - About time for an update.|
So...a month to go before I set sail (or spread wings in this case) for Japaaaaan. Land of the sakura, where the animes lie, and the lolita outfits are calling, and adventures (or misadventures) are sure to be abound. Sent in my VISA application and should have it all set to go by the end of the week.
Oh, yes, and a month before I leave one of my agencies found me another job with Public Service. I swear someone is messing with me. Just as Im about to run out of money they plunk another job on me. It pays pretty good, 7:30am-3:30pm, so I get off earlier (although I have to get up early too, lol). The only...hurdle I guess is that its in an extremely bilingual environment and since my job is receptionist my French is going to need some major brushing up on. Im so rusty since I havent been practicing it for months (and I cant get the keyboard out of French mode hence why certain punctuations are lacking in this post).
Its good to be working again, but I think I got spoiled during my past month or so just staying at home and doing whatever I want. 6am felt way too early to be waking up today. Also, it usually it takes me about 2 weeks before I settle into a new job to the point where I start getting the hang of the routine, responsibilities, expectations, etc. and relax enough so that Im not so stiff with my co-workers. Kind of like when a kid moves to a new school...except within 6 months Ive switched 4 jobs now OTL
This year has been kind of crazy...learned a lot, grew a lot, but still crazy.
congrats on your employment! XDD
i'm still :OOO that you have access to lj at work. :P
we really should hang out before you go to japan, eh.
Lol, your department's just too secure XD My supervisor today even gave me the ok to watch youtube so long as it doesn't interfere with my work...and then she came over and checked Facebook afterwards XDD
Yeah, we totally should! Do you have time to get dimsum or something next weekend?
wow... just...wow.. you and your computer freedoms. o__O.
i could have time, lol.. we'll just have to plan something so that it's certain and i will be able to work around that committment. deal?
Okiiiiies, Saturday morning, 12pm dimsum, y/y?? (Do you have any idea how long it took me to find that question mark on this keyboard? XDD) We can go to the Tai Shang Huang restaurant right by the Byward Market, that way we don't have to go all the way to Chinatown.
lol yes or yes XDDD
sure, sounds good to me. have you been to that place? is it any good?
do you want to meet downstairs at like 11:30 or so? (downstairs like a the lees stop)
Yeah, I've gone a few times. Their regular meals are a bit pricey as compared to other places, and the serving size is a bit small, but I find their dimsum's to be pretty good. It's not as busy as places like Yangtze or Chu Sing because it's not in Chinatown I think, which works better for me because I don't like waiting in line for my food XDD
Sure, 11:30 at the Lees stop is perfect, I'll be there!
see you on satuday then! it's a date XDD

Btw, have I alr told you when I'll be in Tokyo?
You're not going to be there too right? *frowns*
I think you were saying Nagoya ... ?
Or have I got it all mixed up? Lol XD
I think you said you'll be going in December? But that could just be me mixing up my dates OTL
I'll be in Nagasaki :D I'm kind of glad I'm not in Tokyo or somewhere near Takarazuka because otherwise my finances would be in really, really, really big trouble XD
o_O For some reason, my brain told me I'd replied to this ...
Sorry ^^;;; Yes! I'll be there in Dec ^__^V Arr 14, leaving 19.
For such a short trip, I can only be in Tokyo ...
I don't know if you'll be able to go there ... ?
*goes off to search Nagasaki in relation to Tokyo* Lolx.
*returns* Oh dear lord, you're so far away! O_O;
Yay! Japan soon!
Almost, almost, almost!! How's it going with you over there??
