It’s on.

“I’ve had it. I hate to be dramatic but it’s time for me to fly the coop” “I’m looking out for me”.  – Iago from Return of Jafar.

Warning: Rage mode on.

Yes. I’ve had it where I am right now. I won’t go into depth as the length of my dissastifaction of my job covered in my previous posts 2 months back and to this date it’s still within me.  I’ve been low on and off over the past weeks and I’m wasting my energy and time here. I’m deep down miserable and I know that I need change which is why I am studying my degree (with a possibilty to study extra) plus seeking new jobs not related to what I am in atm which leads to below..

I did interview for a part time role (bookings role) last week but although I didn’t get that job, I’m on the waiting list which is still better than ‘unsuccessful’ :). This would be my fourth time out of the five working years but it can’t be guaratneed that a position will pop up in the next 12 months. Key is to keep on applying. I’v applied for a few more in the past week and I have one lined up after the long holiday. Have yet to hear from the others but I know that 3 I won’t get a call back.

It sucks when you’re the only person who is available to cover the front and aren’t allowed off on Fridays and be around in the afternoon. It sucks when you’re in a place for way longer than you expect and knowing health records has high turnover rate. I wonder why I am here -rolls eyes-.  It sucks when you’re skills are best suited to other positions, (policy, research, health promotion..), your current job is stagnant and are no longer interested in pursuing any more opportunities in the place. It sucks when people are chasing after the boss after numerous times or when callers call about a query that is totally not relevant to the scope of the role. I totally no longer enjoy my role. It sucks when you’re study leave hasn’t been approved at all this year.  It sucks when your role is not going to change -sigh sigh sigh- unless i make the change (see above).  I haven’t been applying much over the past year but  this year has been my turning point. This year may be the time to go for me as I’ve applied for a heap of positions in the past two weeks and will continue. Unfortantely I havent been offered anymore exposure outside of my role which frustrates me. In fact that I may be showing signs of resentment to this job. Anyways, enough said.

That’s my thoughts atm… 6 months of this year to go and opening up to part time may mean a higher chance of me securing a positon. Time will tell..

Anyways Over and out!

June Favourites!

Hello readers. Now that class is over until August, I have spare time for this blog.

Today’s post will be on the above title. This won’t be limited to just one but various things.  Here’s to below:

  1. Freddy wr up pants. The ultimate butt lifting pants. Hailing from ?Italy?, these one of a kind pants has a silicone waistband and strategically placed seams. These pants are unlike any other pants / jeans you’ve ever worn.  These pants have become increasily popular since 2016. From denim, fashion to even leggings and skirts, you’ll definetly want to buy another pair Only downsides are the cost but totally worth it and the sizing is small.
  2.  Public health research & practice website. As a public health students who aims to tranisition a career into the area, I thought it would be good to start reading out of interest and perhaps gain insights from researchers and current health issues and it’s effect of health policy.
  3. Figs. I love figs and over the past month, I have been eating it most days.  Known for it’s high fibre content, I can only eat a few pieces.
  4. Kombucha. The fermented pro-biotic drink. I havent even bought prebiotic tablets in a long time.

That’s all I can think off at this point in time 🙂

 

Where have I been?

Hello to all my fellow readers! I’m back.

Havent completely dissapeared from this blog. May was a busy month for me from Game of Zones fitness, Laser Tag, foodie outing and university. The last weekend was spent writing my last, shall I say challenging paper for the term. Never done a policy brief before and I found that it challenged me intellectually :).  Now class is done until August!

Really enjoyed my last class for univeristy as it was based on health policy, one of the fields I aspire to work in.

Aside from that, I’ve recently seen jobs pop up that are of interest and in the process of applying for a few more.

Update with my work hours (part time): Not approved :(.  The only way is part time job applications. I’ll still go for full time as well. I did have an interview earlier this week and have applied for more positions.  Having both options opens up the opportunity for more to come. My turn will come…

Mood wise I’m feeling a little better but am still motivated to move on hence the above. I have my days but it passes.

BTW, I am officially doing city2surf in August and Blackmores in September! Something that I have never done or considered out of my comfort zone! In the past month, been doing twice a week runs (one treadmil) and one outdoors. May ramp this up from this month or next..

Anyways, over and out!
