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! 🙂

The celebration of the 100th post and a new start for Happy Carrot!!!

And so my dear fellas,
I am extremely happy to announce that this isn’t just any 100th post.. I was saving something really good for this…

I GOT THE JOB AT DNB AS A TRANSACTION PROCESSING SPECIALIST!

It took me more than a month but it was totally worth it!!!! So starting from the 5th January, 2015 I will begin my Norwegian courses and the job training as well :))))))  I am extremely excited!!! n______________________________n

And so I guess it is also an appropriate time to mention that on the 24th of November I had my last working day as a dealer (although I didn’t know anything about the new job, I was fed up with not loving what I do 🙂

The building where I will work is very modern and I loved every minute when I walked in there for the last interview. Now I will have a dream come-true  – I’ve always loved paperwork and a light office with big windows! (Especially when you compare casino with no windows at all!!!!! ) I am sure that this is only the beginning ^^

SUCH A HAPPY CARROT!!!

Problems of Mine

I have not been to classes for more than a week now. The thing is that I really don’t want to. First of all, I’ve been fighting depression for a few years now and every time it comes back, it gets stronger – that’s a proven fact.. So I simply don’t want to stare at how I destroy my life and relationships with other people.. So I surprisingly took my first step – I found an audio book about depression and it is called ”The Mindful Way Through Depression’‘. I am in the middle of the book now. It really made me look at depression from completely different point of view.. but what helped me even more.. was doing the things I want. I stayed home, I helped Kaspars, I took on embroidery, wrote blog, visited my parents and enjoyed the nature. These are all the things that I WANTED TO DO. So I did, and I felt happy again. When I feel depressed it isn’t just unhappy.. it’s even worse – I don’t care about the things I should. I simply don’t want to exist.. It destroys everything! When I look at my life I understand that everything is great and I should be the Happy Carrot, but I can’t make myself feel that way. It’s sad and unfair.. especially to Kaspars. This is why I can’t go back to doing those things that make me feel miserable and my life – pointless. And I mean.. I don’t see how the bachelor’s degree can get me a job and make me happy. It can’t! Because if I really want to learn programming.. I should start doing it by myself. But all I can think of is ” what will my parents say? What will my friends say?”. I can make my own decisions but I am afraid to make a mistake as we all are..
But then again – what mistake? The biggest mistake is to waste your time on the things you don’t want to do. When my parents are gone and friends living their own lives… there won’t be anyone judging me except myself – I will be judging myself for the things I didn’t do. I have different values in my life – money definitely isn’t the first one.

I want to be happy, alive and energetic. I want to find a way I can feel happy. I want to do the things that help me and my family. And I want that ”doing” to help other people. I want to live and never regret anything. I want to experiment with my life by following my heart.
