But I know I will hate myself if I don’t. I was meant to be going to the easter show with my friends today but everyone bailed. :| This will be the first year I will miss it and even though, yes, I may be outgrowing it I just think it would be better than spending the entire day in my room even if I do go alone. Staying inside just ain’t livin’.
No Street Lights in NYC
I was playing tennis against a squash wall by the beach and behind it there are tennis courts. There was a group of young teenagers playing tennis and all night I was listening to them playfully fight. Just when I was about to go home one of the teenager’s little brother came up to me and asked me to play with them. I then realised the whole night they were fighting over who was going to ask me.
So my new role at work is pretty shit. I have it for all of my shifts next week but I have to be grateful. I happen to have the most hours next week out of all of the casuals. But the week after it gets better. I still have plenty of hours but I also realised I’m the only one with shifts in numerous departments in the store. That week I have shifts in 3 different departments but when I count it all up, I get shifts in 8 different departments overall.
I remember being a newbie and being stuck on checkouts when people who started at the same time as me were shifted to different departments and I just remained. Now they’re back to their original departments and I seem to be the only one who had eventually moved off and kept my new roles. I am the only one with a variety in my shifts and it was something I had always wanted.
And now I’m finally doing it.
This is the first time in my life where I do not have some sort of regular classes to attend to - no school and no uni. I’ve been feeling restless about it and about all the free time I have now. But now I’m thinking this is just what I need at the moment. I’ve never been more healthy before in my life.
I’ve always been skinny but I’ve never been toned. At the start of the year I lost a bit of weight and I had a completely flat stomach. I started to wear crop tops as my little belly bulge was gone. I wanted to keep it this way so I started doing little exercises in my room before bed.
Life then got busy and stressful. I had my birthday and my sister’s wedding in one week and preparing everything for both occasions caused me to bloat. I wasn’t eating healthy and I had no time for exercise.
But now I am remedying this. I am back on schedule playing tennis every Thursday. I try to go for a long walk everyday or a skate and I still do my little exercises before bed. I have a bowl of fruit for breakfast, snack on nuts throughout the day and eat salads and more fruit for lunch and dinner. And I’ve gone vegetarian for the week as I don’t feel like anything heavy.
Today in particular I went on a long walk/skate with my mum at the beach. After she dropped me off home I went back to the beach and played tennis against the squash wall for 1.5 hours. I did my groceries and bought all things healthy. And just now after a shower I am just feeling so damn good.
