Current State Of Mind:
Andy Bell feat Jake Shears - I Thought It Was You
Well my xmas leave was approved so I end up with just on 3 weeks leave in all. i spoke to the travel agent today and we seem to be getting a good deal on Hong Kong which is good cos this means Ill have more to shop with LOL
Ill be spending one nite there before heading across to Macau for 3 days then back to Kowloon for another 4 nites. Ive also got a day trip to Shenzen (in mainland China) organised plus a day pass to Hong Kong Disneyland...should be interesting. Then its back home for a nite before flying home for another 7 nites then back for New Years...its still away off but something to look forward to at the end of the year.
I was sick today so didnt end up going to work, Ive had a couple of bad migraines of late and this morning was one of the worst, most of the day was spent in my darkened bedroom after I took something to knock me out.
I was thinking about my job this afternoon and think its time I looked for something new, Im a little tired of being a people manager and look forward to being in a role where Im not responsible for others. My 2IC who left friday is going into an Assistant Manager role in another area dealing with Business clients and her boss apparently made a comment to her about me being due for a change. She mentioned to him that I nearly applied for one of the other Manager positions there and he asked why I hadnt, after she had told him that I didnt think I had all they were looking for he said the calibre of people they had interviewed were so bad that they had to look externally and that I shouldve, I wouldve been a certainty...Im now thinking I may approach the Manager given I know a few of them and see if its not too late, 5 years in the current role has zapped alot of my energy and a change is as good as a rest I think...thats my task this week, its time to make a change...
I havent enjoyed my weekend...I made a last minute decision to head out friday nite, which in itself was good to catch up with a couple of people but it also had me thinking about men and how shallow they can be, including myself. I know I look at guys and think "Wow hes cute", but I will never approach someone I find attractive unless Im tanked, even then its at a push. I had two people whistle at me on friday nite, which given I dont see the change in my weightloss find bizarre...it also led me into another conversation with someone there, who altho I knew kinda liked me made it more clear now that he did moreso since Ive lost weight... whatever happened to liking people for who they are? Needless to say nothing will happen with this person, whether Im skinny or not... men are complicated creatures and I think being single is definately an easier option for me...maybe I shoulda missed the 2nd flight in Rome *sigh*
