Moving on from my current job

I am leaving my current job and going back to full time study next year.
You may ask what is my current job.  I can’t tell you because I am still working there and until I leave I can not say on social media (on a post) where I work.
I can tell you in person just not on social media.
Current job
Logistics working night shift.  My body is confused about night and day.
Money is OK but my health is way more important then money.
No the government is not paying for my study (if you are asking) due to fact I have studied before.
I SO REALLY looking forward to leaving!!! There a lot I really like to say about the company I work for but that will be in a blog for another day in years time.  (If I want to vent by then)
During my time there
  • I had to go on high blood pressure pills,
  • My sleep patterns are all over the place,
  • I have requested 2 to 3 times to go onto day shift.  No reply!
I have two options to try, will keep you posted later on what I will do.
As of right now I have 54 calendar days to go and 28 working days to go.
My course starts 12 February.  I finish up on Sunday 4th February at 6am (or there about)
Currently on one more day shift then the rest of my time is nights 😣😥😢😠

3rd South South Conference

During the last week (5th Nov to 10th Nov) I got to help on Conference called South South Conference on violence of men and boys.

There was a lot of information from the conference, I helped on the Audio and video side of stuff.

The Sunday before the conference was only guys workshop.  Then afterwards some of us who was in the Bristle cone project went to the Canterbury Museum

My picture was giant!  See below

I got his autograph and FBI badge.  A very nice guy.  I hope to see him in LA one day

The 5 days went really fast.




Waitaki Candidacy for General Election

I ran as a candidate for Waitaki In the 2017 General election. The position is currently held by Jacqui Dean.

At the Waimate Community gardens

I came second to last with 157 votes, click here for my results.

I entered into this as a learning experience, it was fun and interesting.
I attended one public meeting in Waimate.

I want to do Toast Masters next year to improve on my public speaking.

Below are pictures from my election night party.

Election night #Election2017 I ended up with 157 votes in the end
