Chittisa your blog yesterday definately showed that you are enjoying your new job and the opportunities it's providing for your development. When talking about the task you were doing it was clear to me that you were engrossed in it. I'm also impressed that you are beginning to read and research around the new areas. You don't seemed to be too stressed about time either. You said;
I have done it by forgetting about time
I forgot all about time while doing it
I loved the following sentence;
Anyway, while I was taking a break to breathe and staying with myself for a while, I got a blip of wonder what I have been doing
Anyway while I was taking a bit of a breather on my own, I got a jolt of wonder at the thought of what I had been doing.
It's great when we find our work stimulating and feel that we are learning and developing. There is nothing worse than boredom at work, don't you think?
One of the reasons that I really enjoy my job is that it is dynamic and people- centred and that releases my creativity.
Chittisa, I'm curious about your description of Monday as a yellow day. I've never heard that before.
Many thanks for all your feedback and advice on managing money, wearing black etc. It's great to read your responses, so please keep them coming!
Some feedback to a couple of comments;
Massa, I did mean to use the word garish which is a negative word meaning unpleasantly bright. However your suggestion of girlish would also make sense in that context.
Pablo, I liked your Spanish saying about money and I understand what you mean. I can't think of a direct quivalent in English except that when things are uncertain, we do say;
It's a lottery
