I’ve been busy pretending to be an adult.
- I got a summer job! This makes me feel all grown up… Hooray! I will be fitting shoes at a Clarks store over the summer, when all the kids come in to get their new school shoes – it’s going to be chaos, especially as ‘uniform’ is all black. Me wearing black in summer is not unheard of, but working in a crowded store too? I’m going to overheat. All the same, I am looking forward to earning some extra money this summer and potentially becoming a year-round part-timer as opposed to just in the summer.
- I’ve opened my first bank account as well. I guess the idea of going to a bank can be quite intimidating at first, but the staff are really lovely and helpful in all the ones I’ve been to in the last few days (apart from that one lady in that one bank who looked a bit suspicious of us). There was a particular bank I wanted to open an account with, but they’re a popular choice so every branch I visited was booked up for appointments until next week – when I wanted one this week. Walked to another bank’s branch, however, and they were able to fit me in the next morning – the only reason they couldn’t get me in on the day was that the manager happened not to be in!
- I am thinking of all the online shopping I could do once the card arrives… This is a bad sign.
- I opened up the Pocky Panda! I have been waiting – It’s one of the last few Birthday Box treats left. I love Pocky and I love pandas, so this made me all excited. The biscuit is chocolate-flavoured and the outer coating is milk with chocolate bits to create a speckled effect… I’m in love.
- I still have this horrendous backlog of posts that still need to be edited and posted. This week has mostly been spent away from the computer so I haven’t been able to get much blog work done. My weekend is mostly free, though, so hopefully I can get all my work scheduled and done. I always fall into the trap of thinking that blogging is something that will only take an hour, when in reality it takes about three or four scattered over several nights…
A summer job sounds like hard work, but I’m looking forward to it, anyway.
