First night of training complete

One night down, two to go. The whole time I was in the training room I just kept thinking of how much I didn't want to be there. I kept thinking that I would just tell them it wasn't for me. It was three hours long and I was bored through most of it. Their system is pretty idiot proof and it was painful going through it all sooooo slowly. Then, as if I wasn't already thinking of ways to quit before having really started, we got to watch one of those ASPCA "save the animals" movies (since they're one of the companies we deal with). I don't like watching those movies because I DO love animals and it makes me SICK thinking that people could do such awful, awful things to other living beings. Thankfully, this one wasn't as bad as some of them but it was still pretty bad. Tomorrow we get to see an Amnesty International one and possibly a World Wildlife one. I'm sure they'll be just as awful, if not worse. So, the training was a bit of a struggle but I made it through. I'm not sure what I think about the trainer but some of the other people in training seemed decent. The commute however, is almost 2 hours long... well more like 1.5 but that would be assuming the bus isn't late. I'm going to stick with it for now anyway. I don't think it will be too bad, in fact, I think it might be too easy for me. It was really the commute I was dreading but even that's not too bad when you've got company on the way home (which I did and probably usually will). It will be good at least until I get the other job that I really want!!

I also went out and picked up some extra bed sheets and some art supplies. I already my watercolour paper, paints and brushes but I wanted to get some masonite board to use as a backing and I picked up some canvasses, a small set of acrylics and some acrylic brushes. I also picked up some palletes and mixing trays to mix all the pretty colours in. I was most impressed with myself because I managed to keep it under $100!! So now I'm all set to do some painting when I feel like it.

I'm still having strange dreams at night. I've been having them pretty much since I moved back to Toronto. I'm not sure if it's just stress or if I'm having trouble adjusting to the city noises again but some of them are pretty weird, others are upsetting and many of them I don't remember but know that they kept me from getting a good night's rest. I'm hoping that will change once I get more settled and better employed. I'm thinking it's probably just stress/worry related and will pass soon enough.
  • Current Mood: okay okay
It's actually making me want to work for Amnesty/ASPCA/World Wildlife/Etc!! With this though I'd be taking donation calls for them until I get good and they move me on to other stuff that's not as much fun like paging service and dispatch for companies.
I was actually thinking that myself. I might want to start doing some volunteer work with the humane society here or something. Of course, with the humane society, I might end up wanting to take animals home!!
