Staying Busy

One of the main issues that I have with my job, is that it can be hard for me is staying busy. For the full amount of time that I’m working, because depending on the time of year I have stuff I need to do.

Also, I should point out, that I work 2 part time jobs, one at a university library and one as a part-time nanny. Which, nanny-ing I don’t mind, but I would rather find a more stable job so I can actually bring home money and be able to do the things that I want to do.

Anyways, so at the library that I work at, I work three days a week: Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. And I’m already doing all of my work responsibilities, so that’s not entirely what I’m referring to.

My issue, is that after I graduated, I obviously have no more homework to do, so I find other ways to occupy my time. This, running a blog, is included because it helps me clear my head, so I can move on and potentially digest whatever I’ve been thinking about.

So today, I have restocked all the materials that I need to at work, I have spent some time planning efficiently, and I have set aside things and topics that I want to post about here on Ambivertedd.

(I am writing this post on 12/3 even though this will post 12/4, fyi)

Nevertheless, because I want to start graduate school in the fall of next year, I think it’s beneficial if I start looking for a full time job so I can ensure that I can make money as I continue my education. (Look for a post about this topic as well)

I think it’s beneficial to break the topics up instead of throwing down information all at once. Therefore, you’re not overloaded with information.

Thanks again,

Happy December!

Wow guys, it’s almost the end of the year, and I’m doing a “fun” fitness challenge to commemorate me meeting my goals, despite the fact that I started actually trying to be healthy last month.

I’ve lost a total of six pounds, and maintained my weight.

So, I’m doing the #runcember challenge, where you run anywhere from a mile plus a day, and I want to try to do at least a 5K a day, where I can. (So 5Ks Tuesday through Friday and a mile Saturday through Mondays, since I work longer shifts those three days)

I know that even if I start small, that I can do it.

And on the 1st, which was yesterday, I did 3.1 miles, and it wasn’t too awful in the beginning.

In fact, the first 1.5 miles was fine, but then I started to get tired, and I started looking down at my fitbit more, because of the level of exhaustion that I was at. And while it was good that I was getting tired, I didn’t realize how exhausted I was until I was back home in my apartment.

You know that level of sweatiness that you get when you finally relax and then it all sticks to you?

Yes, it’s disgusting. But it’s also rewarding.

While it may be a ridiculous challenge, I still think that it’s possible for me to reach this goal, because while it may be hard, if I can do it, I think I can be at a closer goal for me.

Cardio sucks, but I want to be able to get to that point that where I sign up for a 5K challenge, I’m not nervous about it, in fact, I want to get to that point where I’m thinking “Yeah I’m ready for this!”

So, there you go. I’ll be updating you as time goes on, but I’ll be excited to focus on finishing it.

Thanks,

Kay

New Music

One of my favorite things to do, is to look for new music.

But not everyday, because it can take me a couple of weeks to get “tired” of listening to that “new” song, (because it’s new to me). I’m also fairly certain that I drive my other half crazy with the amount playlists that I have on my Spotify account (since he uses mine) because one day my playlist will have 180 songs, and then the next it’s increased to 260.

Now that I think of it, he’s never asked me, but maybe it’s just a fleeting thought when he opens the app on his phone.

Now that I’ve gone through the habit of working out five days a week – to literally restart my body and not to overly freak it out, but I want to lose weight and I can do it five days a week. (I did it four times this week though) I have been attempting to put together a workout playlist, one that will get me pumped.

Songs that are included:

Run – AWOLNATION
Carrie – Shiny Toy Guns
In My Blood –
The Veronicas
Woman Woman – AWOLNATION (As well as Bad Wolf and Kill Your Heroes)
Nightlight –
Silversun Pickups
Psycho –
Muse
Kyoto –
Skrillex

Yeah, an electic taste in music, I know.

But I love electronic/dance/edm music as well as alternative and anything that I grew up with (I’m an early nineties’ kid)

Anything that you would suggest for songs to listen to? Honestly if I could put up my Spotify likes, I would, because it makes for easier conversation.

Thanks

Volunteering

Every year, I volunteer at the local zoo for Halloween. But, any event that they need me for and I’m available, I do. Nevertheless, I think it’s so important to volunteer, really at any place.

The importance of volunteering is to give back to the community. I like partaking in Haunt the Zoo at our zoo, because I always meet really cool people, and I feel like I’m helping someone out. Which, I is the most important part.

With me being so busy, it makes it harder, but even if I can’t volunteer during Halloween, I’ll do it for events such as concerts, or 5Ks.

I feel like I use a lot of commas, so I apologize.

Anyways.

I think the best thing that someone can do is to make establishments through volunteering their time. This includes events like this, as well as internships, and other opportunities. But make sure you get paid eventually, because it would be unfair if you(whoever decides to read this, thank you, by the way) don’t get paid for work.

So go out and volunteer and give back to the community; and listen to the Gandhi quote.

Unfinished projects

Seriously, I have so many of them.

I am working three blankets, two scarfs, and three shawls.

I told myself that when I was done with college, I could finally start on all the stuff that I was missing out on. But obviously it seems that once you’ve gotten your degree, there really is no such as free time. (I type as I’m watching anime and typing this out).

Truthfully, I am busy. I work 2 part time jobs, and I’m trying to get a third. I make decent money, but I want to make more so I can save instead of just spend. (Even though I have this wonderful habit of buying things I want if I have the money for it.) [<– The wonderful part is completely sarcastic, if you didn’t pick up on it.]

Also, in my free time (since it’s Halloween time) I’ve been trying to play Guild Wars 2’s Halloween events, because it’s my third year.

However, if I get this other job, I won’t have much time to do my hobbies, but never the less, I think it would be good to have some extra income in. Or I could just sell my blankets and things online, but I’m afraid people would hate them.

My Hobbies and Likes

So I don’t want to seem like a Negative Nancy, always talking about my issues, so I thought that I would give a little background.

So, I love watching TV when I’m doing something (like now, for example, I’m catching up with How to Get Away with Murder, I think I’m on S3…whichever is on now). I love a lot of Canadian television shows such as Heartland and Bitten.

I also love to crochet, because I love making blankets, scarfs, hats, anything. Especially now that it’s getting colder (even here in Oklahoma!) My family is from the east coast though, so it’s not too terrible.

Also, anything relaxing, I’ll probably try. My boyfriend works for the federal government and I work for the state government, also that previous statement, I don’t do drugs haha, unless it’s prescribed.

I love anime and manga, my favorite being Fairy Tail, I’ve been following that for about a decade now, so it’s seriously helped me over my ups and downs. The same with Pokemon games, those have also had a positive reinforcement on me.

And I’m slowly getting into 5K running, that last one was so fun, and even though I hate the fact that I’m overweight, I really enjoyed it.

Oh and finally, I love makeup. I have LE palettes and everything else. I adore makeup, and I love the different uses I can use it with.

Anyways, sorry for short post, I am getting a bit distracted.
