Im laying on a beach on a tropical island and gaze at shimmering sunshine whilst drinking a pina colada and gazing at my hunky man as he walks out of the water towards me. His chest rippling and the water running down his skin.
Then I wake up.
Fifteen days and I have an essay due and four assignments.The pressure is on right now.
It’s stress but I guess those adrenalin rushing forms of stress which if I put my mind to it, I’ll get over.
I don’t smoke by the way, but if I did, I’m guessing I’d look like my avatar.
I’m staring out the bus right now and wondering about this day ahead.
I’ve been called into meetings about restructures so many times in the past year. Average redundancy is around 20-40 each time.
That’s a hell of a lot of skills lost and people who will have mortgages and families to worry about. Two of these people in the pool could potentially be a couple. If they both lose their jobs? Doesn’t bear thinking about the devastation that family would suffer.
This is the reality.
This is happening everywhere and has been ongoing a few years now. But seems to be increasing.
The more people you lose from the public sector the less capable the services become. It’s a false economy slashing jobs to save money.
The wise would have been preparing in the good times for the bad times. That’s what every healthy wise budget person does. But of course the government?
Well I’ll leave that thought with you while I laugh at their unwise highly paid financial decision makers.
Well, my thoughts right now as I’m on a bus headed to work.
Not really had much rest at all at the weekend as I had the little one stay as well.
Unfortunately when he comes to stay I can’t get any law course work done and right now I’m on this bus thinking hells bells I’ve fallen behind and somehow need to turn this around between now and next weekend as he comes to stay again.
The work load is actually ramping up now and where I was in that lull of feeling confident that I was ahead and keeping up? It’s now not so.
Juggling a full time job as well it’s just chaos.
I really respect people who manage to do this and appear cool calm and collected because I’d like that facade right now too.
Despite this, I had a great time with little Mason. He is growing so well and really coming on leaps and bounds.
I taught him to “slide some skin” which he finds hilarious.
So all you need to say is slide some skin Mason and he high gives you.
