Today was a day. Personal life was great. National events were the worst I have ever witnessed.
Let’s start with the bad, and work to the good. Today, a group of at least 4 people (that they know of) took to multiple mosque’s in Christchurch, and shot dead at least 49 people. They also found multiple IEDs planted throughout the city. They have 4 people in custody. Most of the city was in lock down for hours, and one of my good friends is located in the heart of the city when it happened. She confirmed that her office was in complete lock down with armed defenders both in the builder, as well as surrounding the building, after police found a car with multiple firearms and ammo clips in it in the carpark of her work building. The organiser live streamed the whole attack, and posted a 37 page manifesto on his motivation, and answering all questions people might have regarding the attack. Thankfully all of the people I know in Christchurch were fine, however it is still deeply upsetting and shocking for everyone who was harmed or killed, and their friends, family, and colleagues. My heart goes out to those affected, and huge props to those involved in getting the situation under control, and apprehending the culprits.
Now on to work. Had training day 2 for Sales. Learnt some more, and jumped into the web queues to action some online sign ups. This allowed me to go at my own pace, make sure I was doing everything properly, and ensure I had time to ask for help when I needed. Admin work is something I am passionate about, and love doing. So going back into admin stuff made me feel good, and allowed me to get into a flow with what I was doing. Sadly I still have 2 full weeks on the phone left before moving to the digital team, so it will get harder trying to do things quickly while having a customer on the phone.
The have also made some changes for the better with regards to some processes, which will make things difficult at first, to make things a shit ton easier in the future for us, the end customer, as well as some of the other internal departments.
After work, I went to The Base with one of my workmates! We walked around, made jokes, had mad banter, and did some shopping. It was awesome to finally hang out with her outside of work, and hopefully should be going to a house party with her tomorrow as well.
For now, sleep is needed, so I shall leave this for now.
Sweetest of days/dreams! Xox
