I sink I sink in the sink while sinking about sinking in the sink

Ok, so there is no meaning behind that title 😀
Just so you know.. Latvians often pronounce ”think” like ”sink” and so you can probably notice where it is meant as ”think”..
This is just what my smart husband just said. 😀 It is quite funny!

So you know.. I dag er fredag og jeg er hjemme fra jobben nå.  (don’t scratch your head – just google it! )

I have finished my first work week. So what do I think about my new job?   IT IS AWESOME   !!!!!!
Where do I start? The building is absolutely gorgeous! I love that every floor has open offices with windows from bottom until top.. not to mention the lovely view I have when I am in a lift going to the 8th floor where my temporary desk is. While we are on the subject – I got the desk next to the window! Okay.. so I have the biggest desk a person could have, a fancy chair that you can adjust in every way you can imagine, two big screens and I can drink hot chocolate for free like every 5 minutes!! ( of course I don’t do that because that would not be professional and productive ). I love the fact that we are learning Norwegian everyday for 3 hours and the people.. gosh…they are so friendly! 🙂 AAAAnnnd they serve delicious food in the canteen – it is very important that I can have a proper lunch at work!
So for me it is a major upgrade in every way!

From the casino that doesn’t have even one decent window I now have castle of glass.

Before I tried to take something healthy and delicious to work but now it is already there and warm without the microwaves!

People here are actually professional about everything they do and they still maintain their friendliness – this one I can feel a lot! (the difference) I don’t hear anybody complaining.. EVER!

I don’t have to sit in one posture all day – which makes my back feel great at the end of the day.   And other things I am yet about to discover : )))))))

It also turns out that after 3 months I am going to Oslo for one week. Neat!!! 🙂

Jeg snakker ganske bra norsk nå. Jeg synes at norsk er veldig interesant og jeg skal være flink i norsk. Jeg håper dere har det bra. Tusen takk.. Ha det!
Glad Gulrot! 🙂

Norwegian A1 – CHECK!

WOOOHOOOOO!!!!  Jeg er ferdig med norskkurs A1! :)))) ( I have finished my Norwegian course)
It was great! And I still want to continue with a new one. But before I jump into that  – I have two new job opportunities.  So I have sent my CV and application letter to the largest Norway IT company and if I get the job they will pay for 4 month Norwegian learning course and they will teach me to do the job.. And today I found out about new opportunity – to work in DnB Nord bank.. they will provide me with 6 month Norwegian learning course ( and meanwhile I get paid VERY WELL ) and then they teach me to do the job they need me to do and I get paid even BETTER!   So obviously I am more excited about the job in the bank so I am about to send my info to them because this is just GREAT! 🙂

So I am still working at that damn casino.. and today was one of the days when I just wanted to start shouting and run out of the building never looking back ;D  Horrible place for people who value intelligence. I only want to get my big salary (as I had the promotion) and I also have to work until 15th of November if I want to get my bonus which will be 200 – 300 EUR (depending on my performance)… so I kinda want the bonus and I will do my best not to hand in the resignation again ;DDD ( It’s REALLY hard by the way .. )

What else..? Well yesterday we gave pills to the kittens and we should get them vaccinated next week. They are growing bigger and smarted. De er veldig fine. (They are very nice)

My mum had her 50th birthday on 28th October and me, Kaspars, my sister and her groom bought her Phillips Smart TV.   Umm… what else… well there are new people around me but I feel a little bit sad that I have lost the contact with some of the old ones.

My health is deteriorating.. and I guess it’s because of the job. It’s frustrating!!  Nothing bad though … only panic attacks when the lights get switched off and my nausea has turned into puking reflex (without actually puking anything..)

Ok.. for now that is it. I hope to come back really soon and maybe even with some photos 🙂  Maybe on my 100th post.. Its coming soon by the way >: )

And I just wanted to let you know that my husband also got salary increase.. so we both got kind a promoted in October 🙂  I am very happy for him because he really deserves it! I know how smart he is and how he can solve things when others can’t. He is a brilliant mind! 🙂

The day started so so… and now   here I am  :

Happy Carrot once again!

VIP Carrot

10th October was the day when I handed in my resignation.. but I ended up with a promotion ;DDD Now I am a VIP dealer and my intro manager is talking to me about diamond dealers 😀  And I am dedicated dealer as well.. here is a photo of different dress I wear when I go one of the dedicated area:
Me at Work

And on 16th October it was my names day which was kind of disaster but at least my husband is so wonderful that he gave me a present and bought a cocktail that I love called ”Heart in Love”  ( I know it sounds funny but it tastes GREAT! :))))    )   And this Monday he is taking me on a little trip 🙂 I don’t know where to and that’s exciting.. Kaspars is just…  the best husband!  (I love you, btw 🙂 )

And now I have 4 days off and yesterday was my last working day before them and I was quite happy so some photos were made:

Dealer

So as many of you may know – I work as an online dealer.. and you know how we say:
Please, place your bets. It’s betting time!”

Well.. I always notice things like this… so I figured it’s funny enough to write it here. Basically what I hear sometimes is this:

Please, place your bats. It’s petting time!

Makes me smile every time! ;DDD

Funny Carrot ;D
