My Emotional Turmoil Remedy

March 15, 2008  |  My Life, Weekend

Emotionally I have given up on my job and I am hating going to work everyday, true that I work with a great team but it’s the people I deal with day in and day out (in terms of customers) that drain all the energy I have. I just want to abuse some of my creativity rather than work a dead end job that won’t do me much later on. So most of you can understand when I lose my urge to write due to what I feel day in and day out. One of the things that kill a person is the double shifts :/ Because you would be literally working from 7:30AM to 8:00pm :/ And that is just plain torture.

So what do I do to change my mood and lift up my spirits? Well I go out furniture shopping and redecorate the basement living room, I try to exhibit some creativity here and there. And that’s what I’ve done this past weekend, we went back to IKEA and got some more tiny items. This week is supposed to be the week where we put in the semi semi final touches, since there is the wall art that’ll be left and that can come at a later point and not necessarily now.

But apart from that I went out to Top Shop after reading on this one blog about the perfect skinny pants being available there. And let me just say that they actually did have the most amazing skinny jeans. And I am now a proud owner of a black pair, now I can wear my long shirts with those jeans and make it look quite fashionable. Oh and Forever 21 is my ultimate favorite store in the States and for once when I went there this past weekend I actually found lots of stuff I would buy. I did get a great black Crop Jacket. So furniture shopping and clothes shopping really do make a difference. Next on the list, shoe shopping!
