|ohh I did not notice my face here.. at least the kids look adorable hehe! =)|
The past few days have been super busy with my new job (which I have an interesting update about...ek), lots of errands/shopping, and numerous doctors visit (including some blood work for college!!). I was however able to catch up with one of old friends and her children. While my mom and sister went shopping, I hopped over to their house and spent my time with the children! They have 3 kids and sadly, one of them wasn't there when I went over!
I actually thought that the youngest child (the baby) was missing and I confused the kids up! It turns out the oldest one was missing!! I thought it was odd since I felt that the children's personalities had changed, but it turns out, I ended up mixing the girls up!! The baby was no longer a baby.. and the middle girl grew up! From what her sister told me, the older girl that I didn't see grew really tall and is now basically my height. That is crazy considering the fact that she is only 9!!!
Another trip that I made this week was to Bestbuy to pick up a camera for my sister. She wanted a simple point and shot that took high quality photos. I love high quality photos, but the thought of lugging a huge camera around on trips is not fun. The camera that we chose to pick up was the canon powershot. So far, she has been loving the camera and the quality of the photos are very nice! It's also so much easier to carry around than a dslr which makes it easy for her to take on trips or to events!
So while my sister was looking for her camera, I took a little mini walk around the store and came across the laptop center. I actually don't have a laptop and I know it is practically required to have one while in college. I am stuck between the two major brands for laptops- either an Apple or Windows...
An apple is a bit more costly, but bestbuy also has a deal going on right now where students can save $150. This deal makes the laptop a bit closer in price to a windows, but it is still significantly more costly. I have heard that apple macbook last a lot longer which justify the price a bit. Apples comes with virus and a Microsoft office type software, but at my college, they also provide that to us for free. Therefore it seems that windows is still the better deal price wise. I just wonder how long a windows will last compared to an apple laptop.. I feel like it's the same?
After our shopping trip, we stopped to pick up some dinner. I noticed a coldstone near the shopping center where we were. I have this huge love for ice cream and froyo that I just had to stop in there after dinner. I am always craving ice cream hehe. The flavor that I got here is pistachio with gummy bears. I am a fan of pistachio ice cream and gummy bears though I have never tried gummy bears in ice cream. Well it turns out that even though I love gummy bears, they don't taste amazing in ice cream!!
A few days ago, I noticed my lips looking odd. My bottom lip was slightly darker than the rest of my lip. At first I thought that was due to me eating chocolate and not cleaning my face. So I went to clean my lips and the darkness did not come off. This morning it hit me out of nowhere that I might have sunburned my lips. I googled sunburned lips and volia, I knew instantly that the darkness on my lips was a burn!! At my first moment of free time, I went out and picked up some sunscreen lip balm and some sunscreen.
I've been taking a closer look at my skin and it seems that the past 4 years of no sunscreen days have taken it's effect on my skin... I'm making it a resolution this summer to use sunscreen whenever I go out and I am not running. I still can't get myself to wear sunscreen when running, but I have been applying it whenever I leave the house! _________________________________________________________________________________
You may notice that my title says I'm quitting.. hmm well I actually decided yesterday that I would be quitting my new job... Hear me out on this... For one, this was my first real job and it was full time. I never knew how time consuming a full time job was!! I have a lot of doctor appointments to catch up on and I just had no time for them. I also wanted to go on a few trips this summer and having a full time job conflicted with those trips!
I thought I would love the job, but after doing it for a week, I realized that I could not see myself doing this for the rest of the summer. The fact that it gets hotter and sunnier as the year goes on scared me and I could not be outside in that heat for 6+ hours~!! It sounds a bit selfish, but my skin was going to die..! I decided to tell my manager as early as I could instead of holding it off or just not showing up. My manager is so sweet that I didn't want to disappoint her! It was the scariest thing ever, but I chose to tell her the truth and not make up a corny lie!!! Luckily for me, everything ended up well!! My manager understood where I was coming from and wasn't angry. She ever offered to help me find another job which is just crazy!! I kinda lied a little bit to her and told her that I had another job since I didn't want to bother her!! Ahh she is so awesome!!!!
So now I am jobless once again. I'm considering taking on a part time job instead of full time, but it is hard without a driver's license! I'm working on getting my license now, finding a job close to home, as well as scheduling a bunch of appointments before college.. (including wisdom teeth removal this summer!!)
How has your week been?
Do you guys think an apple macbook is worth the cost? (specifically for college)
Have you ever left a job because you just didn't like it? I personally could not put myself under the sun like that for the entire summer. It bothered me to know that I was damaging my skin everyday so I figured it was best to leave instead of suffer. I'm still new to the working world, so I'll see if my decision is correct later!
