Actually the last week has been quite significant for me. Ever since I decided to switch my university degree (a month or two ago), I have also been
making other plans and goals, first vaguely in my head, then more specifically on paper, that I want to complete within the next six months. Basically
a plan of how I want to begin to live my life and the sort of person that I want to be, the sorts of things that I want to stand for. I feel as though
I have been relatively lazy as a uni student for the past year or so, hardly going out, no part-time job, whatever.
With this new degree I wanted change elsewhere in my life. One of my major goals is that I want to work my ass off to become successful, not rely on
anyone else and not doing a half-assed job of getting somewhere. I want to look back at my life in 5-10 years from now and be satisfied that I have
something to show for that amount of time..
Long story short I guess, I handed out resumes on Friday, completed a small amount of visualisation exercises Friday-Monday, received a call Tuesday
and was given a few shifts over the weekend, Wednesday some of my shifts were extended, Thursday I was offered a full-time position until I go back to
uni at the end of July, and from Friday-Sunday (yesterday) I worked 32 hours.
I don't know if that seems significant from an objective perspective, but to me this is quite a considerable change. I am working my ass off, just
how I wanted it, and I plan on continuing this streak for some time. I was immediately taken by how quickly everything escalated. Additionally, it
seems as though I happened to be in the "right place at the right time", so to speak.
So, yes, I am seeing some significant changes, but I am actively working towards them.
