A full fledged working adult

Welcome to the working world, & so they say.

Started work last monday (23/2). It’s been pretty alright so far, except for the work environment which I’ve to get used to. The size of my desk is smaller than in my previous full time job. & I think there’s lots of dust/bacteria around so my skin tends to get ultra sensitive. For the first week my eyes kept feeling dry/sore and my skin would break out in angry red patches with itch. I ended up buying anti-histamines to help curb the redness on my face. Being on the Paediatric team, I’ll have to interact with children and their family members often so I’ll be wearing a mask whenever I step into a Paeds ward. Hopefully my skin condition will improve over the next few weeks else I’d have to wear the mask all around the hospital and not just my wards. *sobs*

Time passes exceptionally fast after work. By the time I end work and get home from work, shower and have dinner it would be past 8pm; This leaves me with another 3+ hours to do what I want before I have to “force” myself to sleep. Everyday after work I’ll feel so tired and drained that I wont feel like doing anything except relaxing by watching my Korean dramas. How am I going to exercise that often if im going to feel so worn out at the end of the day? :\

& somehow I feel myself having the urge to doze off at work despite 7 hours of rest from the previous night. It’s difficult to cultivate good sleeping habits after your biological clock has been screwed up from months of late sleeping and late waking. Thankfully I’ve always managed to wake up on time in the morning without much snoozing/lazing on bed. Oh another interesting thing to share is that my work station’s at the Basement of the hospital, so I’m really near the mortuary. I was close to freaking out at first but it seems as if everyone in that office is having the most fun as compared to our other colleagues who are seated at the other levels of the office. Looking forward to more happenings in there. Heard they organise parties every once in a while too hahahaha.

This entry’s awfully shorter than the rest of my previous entries. I’m trying to get used to it too haha. I hope you guys dont mind my short entries every now and then. Hope your week’s been good!
