Well....wouldn't you just know it...I started to get excited about my upcoming trip and in a moment of weakness told a real life work colleague about it...within the hour I was called into the office and told that my contract would not be extended....I finish tomorrow!
Ok, so that reads like the two are related - and I feel that they only are in that the universe is laughing at me! Teaching me a lesson for daring to have any hope of enjoyment in my immediate future.
I am angry that they left it so late to tell me but not surprised, they have a habit of doing this, but I am also upset because my two good friends here are both on leave this week so I won't get to say goodbye (they are work friends and we don't socialise outside of that, not because we wouldn't but just it hasn't happened). It hurts because I have been here almost two years and if I wanted to leave I have to give a weeks notice. Its frustrating because I am spending money on my trip that I had been saving as a cushion should I be unemployed and because I was being extended decided to book the trip. So yesterday I was a bit emotional, and today I am bloody minded, so I of course will do my work but I won't be in any hurry about it. I also don't want to think that it is personal - remember I am an INTJ so that is definitely what is going on in my head! - and so I am being positive. I am a pro at shoveling the faeces that gets flung my way and so I am continuing with my trip (I have one VERY VERY excited 6 year old on my hands!) and I am going to worry about it all when I get home. So expect panic stations in two weeks time and maybe a little too many blog posts!
However, all being said, I have started writing some blog posts about the planning stages or my travels and I will be posting them on a blog that I created over a year ago but have never posted anything on, and that blog is called...Travels with my notebook. I shall post about my travels on there starting with Germany...but occasionally I may review or re-review past travel destinations.
A german joke apparently....
A man walks off the street into a dentist's office.
"Doctor, you got to help me! I keep having these delusions that I'm a moth."
"That really sounds like something you visit a psychiatrist about," replies the dentist.
"I know," says the man, "but your light was on."
I like it! hehehehe
p.s I included the ecards to make myself laugh! Laughter cures all ailments...almost :)
