Tuesday 16th April

Last night my roommates went to town and when they got back they made so much noise that they kept me up til 6AM, usually I tolerate it, if I don’t have to get up early as they tend to carry on partying at home once their night out has finished…

Only that this morning I had work, I was half hour late… I hate being late and surprise surprise, the only parking space I found was the farthest away as possible:( 

Originally this week I was meant to work Mon,Tues & Weds but am only doing today as they desperately needed me in and university at the moment is too important. I’m so grateful that this placement is very flexible with shifts. 

Once sorted myself out and I was ready to get to work me and the PA’s assistant had to box up the magazine cupboard that I had spent a week tidying up:(  it took us four hours to box this room up and once finished boxing the magazine cupboard there was still so much to do as all we only managed to box was just the magazines.

After lunch I counted some change up for the finance department…

The editors were also getting stuck in and clearing their desks away and also putting on a table all things they didn’t want to give away, one of the editors had a brand new green nail varnish umm… shotgun!

Wednesday 10th April

I’m hoping today that i’m not on reception cover and that the receptionist is in as I really want to get ahead and finish this magazine cupboard, I’m kind of excited because the difference is amazing and it looks so tidy. Although at the moment I feel like the magazine cupboard is my office.

Also I prefer it when I’m in for general assisting as I don’t know what kind of tasks will be thrown at me and it keeps the day different and interesting.

I’m also slightly annoyed today as I asked my sister to charge my I-pod and  when I went to grab it this morning I noticed she put it in the I-pod dock and she didn’t turn on the plug so it didn’t charge 😦 so I’m possbily stuck in a cupboard all day without something distracting my mind 😦

In the end today’s tasks ended up being minimal as the receptionist was in yayyy 🙂

– I had to go out and buy sweetner, as the CEO wanted some and she didn’t like the one Available

– I completed the competitions entries that arrived

– handed out post to the addressed people 

&

– In and out of those Jobs I was in the magazine cupboard for most of the day. 

Fun, Fun, Fun

Friday 5th April

This morning I snoozed my alarm so many times that I didn’t get up till Quarter to 9, miraculously I was only 10 minutes late but made up my time by staying 10 minutes later…It was one of those sleeps where you go to bed feeling fine and wake up with a DAMN cold urghh just what I need…

There’s not much to say about today, I spent all day in cupboard again finishing the magazine cupboard, I only wish I took a picture of what it looked like to start off with so I could show you how messy it was. It nice as well because I had my I-pod in all day it gave me the illusion time was going a bit faster. 

Before my lunch break the receptionist came and called me and asked me to go and buy some limes and sweetener as I forgot to buy it when I went and did the kitchen shop. The limes were for all the editors as there were plenty of Corona’s in the kitchen.

Before the day ended I wrote out my invoice for my hours this week and handed it in, finally the day has ended and it’s home time baby!

Thursday 4th April

This morning at 8:30 I was still fast asleep, thank God my dad noticed I was still in bed, and woke me as I would have been super late to work. I was really tierd that I put my alarm on snooze so many times in the end I went to get up but I fell asleep instead…

I managed to find a parking space and got to work just on time. I hate that feeling of being rushed, I didn’t even do my make up and literally inhaled my breakfast. I ran to the toilets put on some foundation and mascara and got to work…

Today’s main work task was to sort out the magazine cupboard as we are moving offices so for us general assistants it general chaos as we are trying to organise and do all the tasks that need to be done for the big move…

I started to finish sorting out the magazine cupboard there’s literally so much to do! Not even 5 minutes into it the fire alarm went off and we had to evacuate the office, it was quite scary as we are on the 13th floor and obviously in the case of an emergency you can’t use a lift, so we had to use the stairs. 

Once the fire alarm was cleared I went back to finish doing the magazine room, I can’t explain how small and messy this cupboard is, I was in this room for 8 hours clearing and sorting it out, that to amuse myself I built a fort with the cardboard boxes that had to be recycled… Kind of like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vlmswo79_Qo It was fun:). 

Tomorrow is pay day Ch-CHING… into the savings account you go for a well deserved summer holiday eeekk:)!

Tomorrows task is to complete these competition entries, lucky for me they are arriving in bulks of 50 at a time so it doesn’t take to long to input the data as I have so much other stuff to do as well, I have to finish sorting out this magazine room as tomorrow is recycling day…so the bulk of it has to be done, I managed to recycle 20 full bags of magazines and there is still a tonne left to go:(

&

finally it’s the weekend…I Never use this phrase but TGIF BABY!!!! (For those of you that don’t know what it means, Thank God it’s Friday)

Wednesday 3rd April

This morning I got in and checked with PA’s assistant, usually the PA gives me my daily task but she is on holiday at the moment, so I’ve been conferring back and forth with the PA’s temp assistant. I got myself my water as I like to keep well hydrated throughout the day. Whilst waiting for todays post to arrive and see if there were anymore competition entries to input, to keep myself busy I carried on with finishing to file away the documents that I started yesterday and put them boxes so that they can archived ready for the big move. It took me till lunch to complete this.

As I was filing away the documents I kept a list of what was in each box, once I had finished I typed it up in an excel document so that the editors know where everything now is. I then allocated myself with half an hour to do these competition entries luckily there wasn’t  much so I managed to finish it in time, the receptionist has now told me that I can only allocate half an hour of my time to do these competition entries as I have been put in charge with the mammoth task of sorting out the magazine cupboard…AGAIN! 

I cannot describe how many magazines there are, you literally cannot see the floor, last time I did this it took me 5 weeks but this is when I would come in on half days, I need to complete the bulk of this by tomorrow as the recycling goes on Friday mornings. what I need to do is, keep 20 copies of each issue, if the issue is more than 3 years old keep 10 issues and keep an entire box of current issues…

In the space of 10 minutes I recycled 3 bags and have not even completed 3/4 of a shelf…looks like I’m doing overtime today…
