Half Full Friday!

Half Full Friday is a series of weekly posts that Eyegirl originally started in June 2009.  We believe that a lot of our happiness is determined by our attitude about the things that happen to us.  So by participating, I'm deciding to see the glass as half full instead of half empty; I'm choosing to concentrate on the positives instead of dwelling on the negatives.  The Half Full Friday posts are a way to do just that.  They're a list of the things in my life that have brought me happiness over the past week.  I'm determined to find something good in each day.  Are you?

For the next week, I'd like to challenge each of you to keep a list of at least one thing that brought you happiness each day.  Be sure to link up here once you've posted your list!  (This isn't a blog hop so please only link up if you've participated by posting your happy list.  Thanks!)

I had fun with my friend at the Chippendale Men's Revue.  I thought it was a generic version of the Chippendales, but it turns out it was the real deal!

I had fun hanging out with my friends last night!

Two of my friends told me they thought I'd lost weight!  I haven't, but it's always nice to hear someone say it looks like I have.

I'm going to see the Birds of Prey today with my mom!  I don't know why but I've always wanted to go there.

It's been a few weeks now and my violets are still blooming strong!

My new job isn't too bad, so far!
As I mentioned Monday, it was a friend's birthday and she chose to celebrate by going to see a Men's Revue.  We got there early and it was already jam packed.  Luckily, we met some really nice girls there and they allowed us to share their table right up front so we got a great view.  I think I enjoyed watching the women react to the men more than the guys dancing. 

First, the guys all danced together, then they danced individually.  When they danced by themselves, they offered the option of allowing girls to come sit on the stage and have the dude give them a lap dance and rub himself all over them for a fee.  My friend did this for all but one of the guys.  She wore a dress and one of the guys stuck his head under it for a second or two.  She talked about nothing else the rest of the night and is STILL bringing it up.  I think it shocked her at the time, but now I think she rather enjoyed it.

I was supposed to start my new job on Wednesday but my new boss called early that morning and said he didn't think I really needed two days worth of training so I only went in yesterday.  The guy I trained with was super nice!  It was his last day there.  

Basically, I just checked people in when they came in to take their finals and watched the first 2 rows of people to make sure they weren't cheating.  It wasn't difficult at all because I let everyone in, no matter what time their tests were scheduled.  Once the new semester starts though, I'll have to be more concientious of the time if people are late in order to make sure that there will be enough computers for everyone to use.  I had a lot of downtime and was told that's pretty normal.  I wish I could use it to do homework but my new boss has repeatedly stressed that I cannot do homework on work time. 

My new boss is pretty nice so far.  I didn't see much of him today, he mostly stayed in his office and left about an hour early.  I got to leave 15 minutes early too, which was nice.  Everyone had finished up their finals and it was pretty clear that no one else would be coming in so the guy said there was no reason for us to stick around. 

I was shocked at the number of people who didn't show up to take their finals that were scheduled to.  Yesterday was the last day to take finals for the summer semester. 

10 showed me some love:

Those are some excellent positive things this week! Glad the new job is going well, and getting out 15 mins early is always a plus!

Hee hee, what a naughty night our you had ;-) So pleased to hear the job is going well already xxx

That is shocking about people Not showing up for a final test. As you know I work, part of the time, for some college instructors and it amazes me the students that don't show up on time, at all or quite half way through the 2 year program. It's an expensive program!! And some make it through the 2 years, but never go take their FAA exam to get certified and actually do the job. Anyway, glad your jobs not to hard or stressful. & really happy that you had a good time with your friends this week! We all need those times with good friends!!

Have a Great day and Wonderful weekend my friend!!

Big Hug,
Coreen XO

My mom has a furend that always say, "You are only as Happy as you WANT to be."
Now about those that did not show for their finals.. SEE, you have the RIGHT attitude and APPRECIATION for higher education and THEY don't. YOU will finish and become very Successful and they... Poor souls.

I work for an accountancy body and it never fails to amaze me how often students just don't turn up for their exams. It's unreal!

AndreaLeigh said...

I hate that you have so much downtown and there is nothing to do. That stinks just sitting there.

I have never been to a men's revue. I don't think I would want to, but I know some people really enjoy it!
