Reflecting on the Highs and Lows of 2008

Another year has flown by.

The Highs

1. Watching President elect Barak Obama's acceptance speech, this is something I will never, ever, forget

I am still on a high, and will be for a long long time. Getting ready to party on January 20th.

2. Getting my new job, which I am enjoying at the moment.

The lows

1. Reading about Deborah Palfrey hanging herself.

2. The loss of my friend P, he would have been proud of the send off we gave him, where over 300 people showed up for a celebration of his life. We partied, and drank to him. May your soul rest in peace P.

3. The stresses at work this year have been challenging.

4. Sad stories that I have read in the news this year that have alarmed me like
the Baby P story.

5. Or what this man did to his daughter, over 24 years unbelievable.

6. Israel continuing to bombard the Gaza strip.

Wishing you all good things for 2009. Thank you for reading.

Nia dark and lovely as the new girl

This is my second week at my new job, and I started by hitting the ground running.

On my first day, my boss took me round to meet other staff that I would come into contact with. I met over forty people, and it felt overwhelming, and everything seemed like such a blur at the end of the day. God knows how I am going to remember all their names. The next few days consisted of attending, meeting after meeting. One thing that I dislike about my job, is the number of meetings I have to attend on a regular basis, where most of my colleagues have huge egos, and spend their time trying to throw their weight around. One of the meetings got so heated, everyone was talking over each other, the Chair was shouting to get everyone in order. It was amusing, but draining, as the meeting was for two hours.

My boss seems okay, but who knows she may change like mad boss. I am used to working in large teams, but right now the team consists of my boss and I, which concerns me. If and when I fall out with her, I have noone to go to for support. The good thing about my job, is I only see her once a week.

I am still adjusting to getting up at six am every morning, and being at my desk at eight, while most of you are still in bed.

I still have my other job, which I am juggling at the moment, hoping to get my redundancy.

What this means is I have less time for escorting, which is now limited to evenings and weekends.

No rest for the wicked.

In this current financial climate, I am grateful that I have a job, and someone wants to employ me.
