I think that turning thirty has done me a world of good. I feel like everything's been coming up Christielli since I've turned thirty, and I like it.
Yesterday was the big event that I organized at school and it went off without a hitch. It was a multicultural day at my school, and it consisted of an assembly, and an afternoon where kids got to go around to seventeen different pavilions of different countries and sample food, music, and party. Probably at least a hundred volunteers (staff and students) came together to make the day happen, but I was the organizer and I am pretty proud that I pulled it together.
My elves on student council were big helps too. Not only did they complete the tasks that I assigned to them, they were the ones who said "we can do it Miss!" and then reminded me yesterday "See, we were right! We pulled it off!" So yah, it's a great feeling when you pull off something huge that pulls an entire community together, and you have your own cheering section helping you out. But seriously, it was such a great experience witnessing so many people coming together under my leadership. (Somehow... I've never considered myself a leader, but I surprise myself.) It wouldn't have happened if it wasn't for me, and that's a great feeling. Also, it was so nice to be thanked and congratulated by other staff and students alike. Yay me!
Anyway, so since I've been thirty, I've pulling off some great stuff professionally. Actually, I have to say that it's been happening all school year, but this was the school year when I turned thirty, so I'll attribute it all to that.
Also, I'm super happy personally as well. I love my apartment, my friends, my family, new company, my cat, and my new bike. I wish I could have gone on a bike ride tonight, but it's raining, so argh! I should be marking and writing exams, but my brain has gone into vacation mode, and work isn't happening.
But overall, my life is in the upward swing that I really needed when I was feeling emo in the fall/early winter. Alanis was so right when she said:
"And life has a funny way of helping you out when
You think everything's gone wrong and everything blows up
In your face"
Cheesy 90's song reference for the win!
ps Don't point out that there's the opposite lyric in that song. I've already had that happen, so I think I'm good.
