My great-uncle, Judson Chu, passed away on in his sleep between Sunday night and Monday morning. He was a US Vetern, and he, along with my great-aunt (who passed away in mid-2013), was the main reason my family was able to immigrate from China. For this I am eternally grateful. He was close to his 92nd birthday, so he lived a good, long life; we will just have to celebrate his life for him this weekend.
Because his funeral is this weekend, I cancelled my plans which was stressful because I wanted to sell the tickets I had, but eventually I gave up and stopped caring about the money.
I also just found out my trainer, who I’ve been with since mid-2011, is moving onto a better job and while I’m happy for him, I feel like I’m losing a good friend.
A good friend of mine told me a harrowing story about one of her friends and I don’t want to post any details, but it reminded me of my dear brother; I haven’t had time to visit him as often as I would like.
On top of all that, work has been so busy this week; my coworker and I have been working on templates and color stories all week.
I feel like I could sleep for all of next week and still not have enough rest.
I’m going to end on a good note though, so I’ll add that I got lunch with my boyfriend today and I treated myself to some cotton candy limeade!
So last June, I started a new job! It’s near my house and the schedule is pretty flexible so I’m pretty happy about those two things. I’m part of a marketing team for a Nigerian medical care company called Me Cure and we’re mostly doing social marketing and e-commerce. I’m learning a lot about marketing and how to use social media as marketing, and I do some design work for the company too. I have great coworkers who are warm and welcoming and it’s a pretty great work environment.
But design-wise, it’s almost nil, so I kicked my butt into gear and created a podcast with one of my good friends Sowmya! We’re called the We’re The Worst (Sarcasm Implied) podcast, and we have two episodes as of this moment! We just goof around and record a podcast! It’s really fun, and it’s helping me out of my creativity block. It’s also one of my resolutions so I’m extra glad that we got to do this!
