Classic song to start of my post there.
As you may already know if you read my New Job OOTD post (which you can read here if you like) I have recently started a new full time job - despite what the title says I actually work 8 - 6 *yawns*. Since I've been at university for the last 3 years (and school etc before that) I've never had the chance to work full time. I've worked part time to make some extra money, which any student will agree is always needed, but have never had a set 9-5/5 days a week job before.
I've only been at my job for a week now, and despite the fact that I do enjoy it, it's been a massive shock to my poor body. Early starts and working hard all day have left me feeling almost constantly sleepy and it feels like my daily routine consists of waking up, getting ready, going to work, *many hours later* leaving work, eating tea, shower then bed - repeat x 5.
Like I said it's only been a week but I've come home a few evenings - feeling incredibly sleepy - and wondered what's the point of so much work, only to have minimal amounts of fun and left feeling exhausted.
But then it hit me - one evening I was browsing various online shops, looking at clothes and accessories that my poor little bank account couldn't afford, and I realised that by putting in the effort and working hard, I could afford these little luxuries that previously weren't an option - again any student will be able to relate to the feeling of being pretty poor.
Don't get me wrong, I don't think it's all about money or having nice clothes etc. But I do think it'll be lovely to now have the option of treating those closest to me.. My mum see's a dress she likes? Well now I have the option of treating her too it.
So I've decided that each time I feel tired, or grumpy at the thought of working so much I need to remind myself that it'll all be worth it in the end and that *cheesy quote alert* nothing worth having comes easy!
If anyone has any tips to keep motivated during work I'd really appreciate them.I'm sure they'll be needed when my alarm buzzes bright and early!
