Hmm…looks like a bad habit in the making. My last post was a week ago. So what’s been happening in the mean time, I hear you ask. I have been busy this week…not with work but with other activities.
My community college classes started this week so Tuesday night after work, I attended my Creative Writing class while on Thursday night it was Italian for beginners (the language, not the food). This will continue on for the next 7 weeks, then a two week holiday and then back again for another 8. Wednesday night I had peer supervision: a bunch of my psych friends and I meet up once a month to discuss a difficult case and just catch up at a restaurant. And on Friday night, I caught up with another friend. Also, apart from Monday night, I did not watch TV on any single day! And that’s a record of sorts because I tend to keep the TV on in the background even if there is nothing worth watching.
I spoke to L on Sunday about the cleanliness issue (as a stepping stone to discussing the threesome issue). She apologised for not cleaning up the kitchen bench after making a mess and said it was “bad habits” but she would make sure she did it. Almost a week on, I see no change. What should I do??? This morning I was scrubbing the kitchen sink since there was leftover chocolate and flour from her baking experience early on in the week. She’d done the dishes but didn’t think of cleaning the sink. There was also a bit of peanut butter stuck on the kitchen bench from her morning brekky which I cleaned up. And if you were to drop a pasta shell or two on the kitchen floor, wouldn’t you just pick them up and throw it in the bin rather than wait for your flatmate to clean it when vacuuming the place? Am I asking too much? Seriously. Tell me if I am.
T is still coming over as often. I am going to work up the nerve this week to tell her. But first I am going to tell my friends that I am telling her. Just in case. I don’t want something like this happening to me. I’m going to text a friend before I tell her and ask them to call me in 15-20 minutes to check up on me. I know I sound paranoid. But you can’t be too careful at times.
Another thing that occurred about two or three weeks ago was this:
I received this postcard from Clarissa. Basically, Clarissa read another blog where mothers (from around the world) were exchanging postcards as a way of educating their kids. Clarissa got in on the act as well and asked on her blog re who would like to exchange postcards. I put my hand up for it even though we both live in Sydney. But she was kind enough to send me one she picked up in Western Australia. It was so cool to receive a postcard. I have received about 4 postcards in the past from friends who have gone travelling to Europe, Singapore and other states in Aus. Does anyone else enjoy giving and receiving postcards? Let me know.
And finally, I started working at my actual location. The people seem nice but the team is a whole lot bigger than what I am used to and it scares me. I am trying to deal with some separation issues at the moment and I’m missing my colleagues from my previous jobs big time. I am also going through a lot of anxieties in my head. Blame it on the massive change. And mind you, not all the anxiety is work-related. I am worrying more about personal stuff and a bit about work. I know I will cope with the work front. I don’t know why I worry so much. I really need to consider therapy seriously. If only I can get over worrying about what the psychologist will think about me seeking therapy, that is. Sigh.
And my lovely sister turned 21 last week. I still cannot believe it. To me, she’s still the young girl I left when I came here to Sydney. 21. Wow. Happy Birthday again, sis!!! =)
Anyway, hope everyone has been well. I apologise for not commenting on most of the blogs I visit. Have generally been too tired and have just read the posts without commenting although not every day either. I will get back into it. There is no way I am leaving my blog buddies!!!
Hope you all have a good weekend!!
Until next time,
