Thoughts Of Today

Life's Lessons

As my year off from university is drawing to an end, I am now confronted by the daunting prospect of my final year. It can go two ways. Good or bad. If there were an in between then that’s not good enough.

I love my job at the airport. I feel appreciated and wanted within my work. I love my colleagues and I love that the job is active and social. If I am not communicating with passengers, then I am communicating with staff and if I am not communicating to staff, then I am communicating to passengers. If there is one (obvious) thing to take away from this, is that I can say I am less anxious about people.

Well, I’ve kind forced myself back into society and relearned how to talk to people and care less about judgemental people. Always remain friendly, polite, and professional within the work place. Do this, and you won’t go wrong.

So what do I like about my job? apart from the social aspect, I also like how active the job is. I am never stuck at one place doing the same one thing… I do one job for 20 odd minutes before changing to do something else. The job variety is incredible.

I also love the fact that I can tell people what to do haha “Sir, please remove that belt.”, “Madam, The high heels need to be removed and into the tray”, and “Are you carrying any items for anybody who is not travelling?”. There is an ego behind the uniform to say the least.

The best thing is walking through a supermarket after a shift with my high visibility jacket and “SECURITY” printed on the back… It grabs the attention to say the least but that could just be the fluorescent yellow colour. It be an even better bonus if all woman had a thing for men in uniforms too… *sigh* haha

I don’t mind waking 2am or 4am or 10pm for my job. It’s different. Not your average 9 to 5 office job. No, no, no. Far from it!

Excuse the short gallery but photo taking are restricted at work!

My greatest concern is that perhaps I love this job too much.

ta ta for now


Isn’t it weird?

Rants and Raves

Isn’t it weird how one person can put a smile on your face? Isn’t it weird how you can feel so natural with someone and just get along as if you have been talking for years?Or Isn’t it weird how your week can be turned upside down, wrong way round, by one person? …From the good, the bad, and the damn right hilarious!

I won’t go into too much details* but if you can read between the lines then that’s awesome!

*I end up talking a lot about nothing. 

Decision, Decisions, Decisions…

Rants and Raves

So, I have a slight dilemma. To get a car or not to get a car? that is one of my many questions. One other question is To travel or not to travel? and finally, why are my parents so controlling?

My situation is that I have taken a gap year from university to do stuff. Stuff that I’ve always wanted to do or opportunities to do new things, however I feel as if I am anchored and chained down…

Stress Buster: Part II

Life's Lessons, Rants and Raves

It’s clear everyone goes through stress. It is a natural process that humans go through. Stress is the human body’s natural response to any change in the environment that requires an action, reaction, or adjustment to what’s normal, and because of this, you may get a sense of being overwhelmed.

So, following my previous post Stress Buster: Part I, What stresses me out the most?

How I Cope With Depression

Life's Lessons, Rants and Raves

Word of warning, this is bit of a long post but if you manage to read all of it then thanks in advance and kudos to you! As you may or may not know, I have depression (but I am coping just to let you know).

Depression is more than just simply feeling unhappy or sad for a few days.

Everyone goes through a few spells of feeling down, but when you’re depressed you feel persistently sad for weeks or months, rather than just a few days. For me, I noticed the symptoms years ago whilst at my first year of university but thought nothing of it. Some people still think that depression is trivial and not a genuine health condition. They’re wrong. Depression is a real illness with real symptoms, and it’s not a sign of weakness or something you can “snap out of” by “pulling yourself together”.

I think I know the reason why I am depressed but it’s knowing how to deal with it that’s the tricky bit. So here’s what I do to help ease me back:

The Teacher

Life's Lessons, Poems

You taught me to love
And I thank you for this
You taught me to feel
Like the first and last kiss

You taught me to listen
When you had something to say
You taught me to care
For when you had a bad day

You taught me to enjoy
The things that bought me happiness
You taught me to cherish
The memories that were the best

But you never taught me to forget
For the sadness, on the day when you left

No Mistake From Pain and Heartache.

Life's Lessons, Poems

She lit away at her cheap cigarette
Dragging intensively with little regret
With no sympathy, empathy, or care for the world
Portraying herself, as this heartless “bad girl”

Piercing on her lip and perfect made hair
Her heavy made eyes for an allusive stare
She used to dress colourful, but now with black
And wears less clothing to stand out from the pack
