I’ll make my graduation after all, yay

so I found out this afternoon, that my graduation from college is on April 2nd, at 2 PM. That is great. It means I will make the ceremony. Its on a thursday.

I am so thrilled to be able to attend it. We havent officially been told yet, but at the meeting me and my friend went to this afternoon, the girl we spoke with was able to tell us when the graduation would be.

So its great news! Now at least I know I’ll be there, wearing the cap and gown and graduating. My overall results arent out yet, but they will be soon. I think I’ve gotten a 2/1 which is a second class honour.

Early finish

So I finished up early today at work! I was delighted! I went in at 11, because my PA was finished all of my house work. She asked me if I wanted to get a cab with her, she payed for it. I said ok, it saved my supervisor a journey as she’d have had to pick me up.

I only worked for an hour and a half! I had about 25 people to call. I didn’t get a few of them but I got through to most of them.

After I got done one of the girls in the office dropped me to my moms, as my supervisor was gone to one of our clients funerals, the one who died over Christmas.

It was a good shift though. All of the clients were in very good spirits.


I found out my graduation from college will be held in April. Not sure of the exact date yet but it will definitely be some time in April. I am away one weekend in april, the weekend of my birthday which is the 17th to the 19th. So I hope it wont fall on that weekend, as I desperately want to go to it. My tutor told me that we’ll recieve a letter in the mail shortly, with an invitation to the graduation in it. The invite is for me and two guests. I’ll probably bring my mom and my sister with me. She also said there will be instructions on how to go about hiring the cap and gown. You have to pay to hire those out. I really hope it falls on a weekend that I can do, so I get to go and wear the cap and gown. And get photos. Its important to me to make the ceremony. After all I worked hard in school for a whole year. Now I want to stand on that stage and recieve my certificate and be special for a little while.

Working over christmas

I am working a lot this week. I am helping brenda out, brenda is my supervisor. She is short staffed, so I helped her out this morning. I worked for 3 hours this morning. I also worked yesterday afternoon but that was my regular shift. I am working tomorrow and on friday also. I dont mind. The office closes on Friday afternoon but we’ll continue to make calls over the whole christmas holiday period. I will just work from home for a few hours each day over christmas and the new year. I will have about 12 to 15 clients to call. There are 10 of us working it. I’m happy to do it. Some of our clients wont see anybody over the holidays so they are depending on our call. I’m happy I’m able to help.

A lovely afternoon

So the christmas party for friendly call was today as you all know. It was fab! I had so much fun at it!

We went to a hotel for a christmas lunch. The food was amazing!

We had turkey, ham, mashed potatos, gravy, stuffing, brussels sprouts and carrots. Then for dessert we had christmas pudding with cream. It was absolutely gorgeous.

There was music, nice easy listening music, and some of our clients even got up to sing. We also had a guest artist, a 15 year old girl who was a winner of the junior eurovision contest in ireland. She sang two songs and oh my but she was so amazing!

There was also a raffle and everyone got a prize! I won some hand cream! It smells so good! I enjoyed winning a prize.

It was a lovely afternoon of good food, good conversation and fun. I even met some of the clients who I hadnt met before. One lady even asked especially if she could meet me which was so nice.

I got home around 6 and have been chilling out since then. I face timed with my friend sarah, that was nice. She’s been feeling depressed and she said our chat helped her to feel better. Thats awesome. I’m happy I could make her feel good again.

Christmas gift list Completed and other updates

My shopping for Christmas is now 100 percent completed! I wrote out cards for my mom and dad today and I put the money I am giving them in them. Now I’m done and so happy to be finished!

I feel like I’ve accomplished a lot this holiday season already! I have bought for everyone on my list. I am organised, or more organised than I have been in a few years. Last year I wasn’t this organised!

I can now enjoy the lead up to Christmas! Next weekend mom and my sis and me and the kids are going to glow, which is a festival here in cork city, its on every year for the month of December, we’ll go and have some food in the food market, go on the big ferris wheel, and then go in to the Christmas winter wonderland that has been created in one of our city parks!

I am so excited about going! Its one of the highlights of Christmas for us each year!

Mom took my sister shopping today for clothes, she’s giving both my sis and me clothes for Christmas, but she will also probably give us a couple of little surprise gifts, she normally does. She wanted my sis to pick out her own clothes, I got to pick out mine last weekend.

I’ve also bought myself a new outfit to wear for the friendly call Christmas party, which is this coming Wednesday. That will be a nice get together. We’ll spend time with the clients, have a meal and some music and stuff. I am planning on getting all dressed up, putting on make up and having a fun filled day! The volunteers and staff from friendly call are planning on going out afterwords, once all of the clients get dropped home. I don’t think I’m going to go with them though. I am not drinking due to dieting, and so I don’t feel up to going into town socialising.

I’ll enjoy the Christmas party though! We’re having a raffle to, and each of our clients will get a gift. All of us the volunteers had to bring in a few gifts each so that there is something for every client.

So that is my little christmasy update! I am a very happy camper tonight! College done and dusted, Christmas gift list complete, what more could I ask for!
