Hello people,

So I have been and still are working on something interesting that I am hoping to share with you soon!! Therefore do not question my disappearing act.

But first: Let me know how you feel about the design, I was hoping for a more lively feel while working on it.

And now to less irrelevant news πŸ˜€ I have had a story to share for quite sometime now but it hasn’t seemed succulent a story enough until today!
Sooooo…….. “DRUMROLLS”!!!!

Remember me making excuses for being inactive here some time back because I had school and work and bla bla bla…Well guess what, I have no reasons for making excuses anymore because I was … yes you guessed it..FIRED!!

I think employers enjoy this part of their lives because the reactions that come with it…*priceless!!*. I wish I could get some video footage for my reaction.

So I reported to work as usual at 2 in the afternoon. The first person I told this story was like..”At 2!!! No wonder you were fired!” and I’m positive you share similar sentiments too but hold your horses!! I got to enjoy such privileges courtesy of being in school in the morning.

So she watched me work all afternoon with the end goal in mind. Why not drop the bomb as soon as I walked in…I guess I’ll understand why when I’m in that employer position which by the way is coming very soon.

So as I was preparing to leave because the clouds were getting uglier by the minute, I was summoned to the office of doom for what was referred to as “some little chat”. I saw the timing a little weird but brushed it off and in for the little chat I went.

Then she pulled out my contract…and I knew that the day of it’s termination had come..( To be honest I had seen this coming but not that soon) and it was followed by some long speech!! I get that people need to be told why they have been fired but some people aren’t up for a background run of how incompetent they are.

Just to be clear, I am not insinuating that I am/was incompetent. Being a full time student and working at the same time is quite tough especially schedulewise. It was quite fair for the company to do so especially because I had to keep calling to change my shifts due to rescheduling of classes. I could have worked remotely but the terms of my contract were that I had to be in the office for a specified minimum amount of time.

P.S I got the job while on holiday so trying to readjust after opening school became difficult. They however told me that if I had more time they would have loved to keep me on board.

And there went my source of some little side money 😦
