Hassie Adventure - Week 21

This was a week I tested myself. I set a goal or a test if you have to call it something. I wanted to see how many days I could work in a row and see how I feel after during etc.

This week I went up to 16 days and could not do anymore.

I must state that when I started this 'study' I was only working in Housekeeping, then I was approached during and started working Food and Beverage as well. If it was only one I think I could have gone longer.

It was interesting to see how I felt it was easier 'motivating' myself to work. I feel like after my days off it always so much harder to get into my working routine. Where as I never really stopped I never left my routine.

I realised my memory got worse and forgetful, I felt numb and out of it mostly. My body on the other had didn't ache as much as it usually do when I have days off and I felt my work was better.

After completing my 'study' I will NOT be doing that again or attempt it. Its was a good eye opener but its not worth putting your body and mind thru all that.

I have concluded that its best you rest up, work as you know is not everything.

Pen Pal - Sune'


My first ever official pen pal - Sune'.

She lives in South Africa and might be family, but it still counts. She is my cousin and gosh I haven't seen her in person for about 7 years? since then she has grown up into a beautiful woman and isn't my little cousin anymore. 

I do miss them dearly but I find its easier not to think about them - otherwise I get very sad thinking about how much I miss out on their lives. 

With this we get to wait forever to see each others actual hand writing and share some hard copy photos with each other. 

Thought I just share with you the first photos she sent me of my family that side of the world. Might have a bit of a surprise for her. Just have to send it via Snail Mail.

Hassie Adventure - Month 5 (Week 20)

This is a week of working....

As you might remember, I started helping out in Food and Beverage. Well I tell you what!! I started while it was busy!! My Gosh!!

We had our first big snow fall (YAY) and that means everyone comes up to see it. Which means the Tavern is super busy and trying to learn things while its that busy really kept me on my toes and also gave me an understanding on how 'hectic' it really can get!!

Nothing really special happened so a short and sweet one this week
