My biggest fear is being called lazy, I think this harks back to my days at school when I was notoriously bad at doing any home work, coursework or any practice for my music lessons. I was 100% a lazy child/teenager, however now I sometimes question if I am massively over compensating by trying to do it all.
This week saw me start my full time hours in the Events department, work the box office at the O2 in the evening and still do my bar job around it all. On Friday night one of the lovely regulars in the pub turned round to me out of the blue and told me to stop working so much and relax, I thought nothing of it until I was packing up to go meet some friends in a bar after work. I jumped on to my bike and cycled home and instead of going to meet friends (and inevitably waking up the next day tired and grumpy) I went home to bed.
I don’t whether this need to always be on the go is because I hate being a labelled a lazy student, or whether its because our generation is often branded as being lazy and self entitled. I spend so much of my time running between different jobs and tasks that I’m normally a blur holding a coffee cup. (I really need to learn that saying No to people wont end up in them viewing me with disappointment and muttering “lazy” under their breath)
However this weekend I am going to live up to the lazy stereotype. I am going to enjoy a lazy weekend with Si completely guilt free, I will spend the weekend in watching films and maybe even enjoy a glass of wine.
So to all you amazing people working full time, or working two jobs, staying at home and raising your children or studying for a degree, don’t forget to take some time to yourself. I hope you all have a relaxing weekend, because I certainly will be.
