Keto and Ketchup

Ketchup – as in let’s catch up!

Sorry I’ve been gone, it’s been busy where I’ve been. In the last week, I’ve started the Ketogenic diet, and I’ve dropped about 8 pounds, I’m sure it’s just water weight but it’s weight that I haven’t been able to lose before, so there’s that. I’m dangerously close to a goal weight and I’m happy about that.

I’m still doing positivity posts and I think I’ve been doing those for about 2 months now, which is awesome. Depending on the post ~40 people like it, which means 40 people see what I’m writing out, and I think that’s wonderful in itself.

I’ve been working a lot more, which means actual work instead of down-time. But I’ve also managed to hit level 122 on a bubble game that I started 2 weeks ago on facebook – so I’ve had more time, but it’s easier to be on facebook so I can chat with my fellow library people.

I’m now actively searching for a full time job in the last month, and I was offered a position at AFLAC which I turned down, only because it was difficult to sign on to a job where I would be a 1099 instead of a W2, but I told them to contact me in a couple of years, because I do think I would be excellent for that kind of job. I love helping people, and I know how to tie an emotional connection to something to sell, so I am good at selling things (that is, if I think it’s worth it).

For this week, I have to work a lot extra for work (bleh), and I have a wedding to go to – they were our former roommates, but I was going to go to the bachelorette party, but have to work, because no one else seems to want to come in. Actually, a whole bunch of people took off for that day, and then my boss was like ‘yeah come in’ and I’ve been over a lot on hours, but it’s frustrating since I can only work so much.

I hope everything is well for everyone who reads this, if anyone wants to read this, because I’ve been gone, and I’m going to try to be more active. I have some stuff coming up this month and next, but that’s what makes life so exciting, right?

Thanks,

LifePlanner Changes

I am so thankful that I bought a LifePlanner, because I already feel like I’m more organized than I was a month ago.

Not only does it keep me on track to what I want to do throughout the week, but because I carry it everywhere with me, it also gives the illusion that I’m more organized to everyone else. I accidentally brought it into an interview last week, and they were so impressed. The woman started gushing about how she always wanted one, and she’s glad that she interviewed someone who is striving to be organized.

Which I am. But I’ve only filled out 2.5 weeks, if that.

First week will not be shown because I was being messy and lazy, but I will show the last two weeks:

Week One.

Week Two.

I got the neutral theme, and I’m kind of just adding things as I move on. I work mostly Saturdays-Tuesdays so Wed-Fri are my off days, where I run errands and everything else. I bought lots of stickers on Etsy and I’m in love.

Also Pro-Tip: Make sure you know how much you’re buying because you’ll go broke fast.

Thanks again,

Kay

Lent

So for those who celebrate lent – it’s coming.

I was brought up in the church – I attended Catholic schools for most of my life (10+ years so definitely most of my life) and I can also say that is one way for a child who turned into an adult to break away and “discover” other means of religion.

I’m practically agnostic/deist but still on the edge, and not making any means to commit to another anytime soon. Yes, it’s because I’m lazy and I’ll be 25 in June so I’m still unsure about everything religion. There’s too much pressure on society’s views on it anyways.

So, one of my closest friends is going through the process of becoming a Catholic. And while I’m excited for him, it really puts things in perspectives on how the Church is set up – and as emotional support I blindly said that I would participate in Lent with him.

Yay.

So, instead of giving something up, I’m going to do what I did in December (Runcember) and work out more. I pretty much did a 5K every day of December, and while I do have a 5K that I’m walking for Weight Watchers, I’ll be working out every day of March. Except for Sunday’s because I work long hours on that day, and you’re supposed to be taking a break once a week anyways.

Lucky for me, I prefer Tuna to anything, so the No Meat on Friday’s won’t be challenging. We’ll see how it works out, I have everything written in my planner just to make sure. It’s actually a lot of fun to be organized.

I got up in time!!

I got up in time to head to Weight Watchers this morning – which in hindsight isn’t that difficult, but when you get home around 3:15 and then your boyfriend decides to keep you awake so you only have maybe 4 hours of sleep, it was challenging.

But I knew that if I went I could be back on track.

And that’s the case. It was great seeing everyone since it’s been a couple of weeks, it puts me back on track. Which is what I feel like I needed anyways.

It’s honestly a great experience to go back to a community that you haven’t taken part in in awhile, and I gained 3.8 pounds, but considering that it could be so much higher, I’m not terribly upset.

I think it will motivate me to become better this coming week, especially with my Lent Goals that I will be starting at the beginning of next month.

I can’t believe that it’s coming up, in all honesty.

Thanks!

Positivity Month

I know that I mentioned it here, but I thought that I would give some examples on how I’m trying to write down not only common sense, but things that I think people need to hear.

Also as a PSA – my boyfriend and I did not break up, but I still think that it’s important that these words are expressed.

I hope that these words will help us over time. Also, if you noticed I changed the tag on the right bottom to my instagram name as well.

Just so people could find me. I’m doing it for an entire month, so I should be done by March 3rd (30 ish days) but maybe I’ll do it for longer. It’s definitely making me more chill if that makes any sense.

Hope you like them!!

Good Customer Service

It’s honestly so easy, but I also feel like it’s difficult to come by these days.

Yeah, people are annoying, believe me. I’ve worked in customer service now for hmm…7 years? (Oh goodness, I’ve been part of the work force for that long).

I also think that it is highly important to work in different fields. For example, my first job was fast food, then I moved onto retail, and now essentially office work. But I worked in fast food and I was a server. Which I still have nightmares about.

Anyways, I still think it’s important to treat people, like actual people. As you may know I work in a library and yesterday I someone returned a phone to me that was lost. It immediately rang in my hands, and the person seemed relieved that someone found it, but after I hung up the phone, I noticed that it had 2% of a battery charge. Naturally, I felt bad, and I begun to charge it, after looking up which charger it needed.

When the person came back for his phone, he was happy, but he was also mad at me for charging it. Which if you ask me, was uncalled for. It’s really not that big of a deal, but because it ruffled my feathers a bit, I was surprised.

It still makes me feel like maybe we should try hard to give the best customer service out there, and I don’t want people to make me feel bad for doing a good deed. Eh, late night thoughts, here they are.

It’s Valentine’s Day (technically) hope everyone has a great day!

Sociological Grooming

I love my degree. Like love love

I initially majored in sociology because it was easy, but I love it because with the amount that is taught, I have a different view on things that happen over time. And just as the image above states, it’s a better idea when two perspectives meet.

I used to be very centralized in my opinions and ideas, but because I have learned through my own “grooming” that I can be better, I am thankful for it.

Also, I understand the importance of sociological learning, so I don’t shame people for having their own views. I do, however, shame people for being idiotic when they do the same thing over and over and over again (and still complain about why things aren’t changing).

Though, this is normally reserved for people that I personally know, instead of just random strangers on the internet.

I don’t like to actively search for people who I feel have ‘wronged’ me in any way, because there’s too much negativity in the world already. Let’s not add to the pile, yes?
