Thursday Thoughts

Top left: painting my nails with Essie Sand Tropez, a great summer nude colour

Bottom; my new sandals I got on sale for $7! Don't you love the beads on the back?

Do you ever feel like theres a slight discrimination against single people? Sounds silly I know but think about this. Sometimes, I feel that at work there's a general consensus that just because I'm young and single I must have nothing better to do than work. I can't use my child as an excuse for not being able to stay late, come in early, or come in on my day off, and I feel it puts me at a slight disadvantage. But just because I don't have to get home to cook dinner or pick up my kid from daycare, does that mean that my free time is less valuable than others? Does anybody else notice this?

I've been thinking about planning a trip to the 2016 Summer Olympics. They're going to be in Rio de Janeiro and it's somewhere I've been thinking about going lately. So I was thinking, why not go summer of 2016 and be there during the Olympics? It's always been a dream of mine to go to the Olympics, and it would be like a killing 2 birds with 1 stone type of thing. I know tickets can get pricey, but I figure with a lot of planning and research it doesn't have to be. So if anyone has ever gotten tickets to the Olympics, or knows someone who has gone and has any tips, I'm ready to hear them starting now. 

If you like to check out home decor on Pinterest, you'll know that decorating with maps is all the rage right now. I have them on my list of things to keep an eye out for at the thrift store, garage sales etc. 

 To my luck I scored a huge world map at work for about $8. Now I just have to find a frame that huge. Probably would have to be custom made, and probably would be pricey. 

I've got a pretty big exam with the Pharmacy Examining Board of Canada coming up in September. It was $375 so I'd really like to pass so I can get my money back from work. Problem is, I haven't started studying. Ugh. I'm just so tired after work that when I get home I want to shut my mind off. 

Anyways hope that everyone else's week is going alright. Any thing you want to get off your chest?

Ooh are you getting licensed? Thats pretty stellar!

Ok its true. It was happening to me at work when BF was across Country for 6 months. People would actually make comments like "what? you have to get home for dinner with the cats?". crap like that.
