Latest News – So Proud…

It’s rather ironic, from what I wrote in the last post here. Keeping my fingers crossed certainly paid off for work. As of this moment, I have been working at a local service/petrol station as their new forecourt person.

With this position, even with it being only part-time is great. I am able to meet new people, some from within Gisborne township, some who live in the outer areas – like Reuban and I, or further – and even visitors and tourists coming into the area.

Almost all the people I have spoken to have been lovely. Willing to chat, or even just to say hello and how their day is going. There may be the odd one or two that do not, but nothing I can do to change that, really.

Even more recently that I am proud of that I have accomplished since moving to Gisborne. I got my driving licence!

Admittedly, it is my restricted, but it is a step closer to getting my full one. I have been on my learners for so long, and had done the test before, I felt so worried that I might not get it.

But even with all that I did during the test, parroting the tester, talking to myself about what I saw on the road, I made only one critical error. And that was watching my speed. Thankfully I didn’t get anywhere near 60km/hr, as that would have been an instant fail, again.

Even the new licence had only just arrived this morning, I still cannot quite believe that I got it. I almost cried when the tester said I had passed. I was in a bit of a daze when he said that for a while afterwards.

The one part that I feel like I have not accomplished as well as I had hoped, was the work in regards to my studies. With the new amount of things to do at home and at work, I have not had a chance to get into writing more for my thesis, and have even applied for it to be put on hold for a few months, least until I can find a good routine with work, life and study.

Well, there is the latest updates from here, I do hope to write more soon, least when the time comes to write about them. Until next time readers. x
