As I’ve blogged about before, I recently went on a Harbour Cruise with my work. We sailed around Sydney Harbour, drank free alcohol, ate free food, had a great time with great people. This is the video I made from the night, my first Christmas Party as a McDonald’s manager. Make sure you watch it in HD!
I do edit these for Instagram that is the one and only reason they are one minute long.
I’m sorry it’s been so long my blog friends! I did go away for a couple of days with friends and was doing fun things and honestly just didn’t have the time to blog and didn’t think about it either. But I’m back and want to note the hectic night I had with my work.
Our official work Christmas party happened, finally. In January, but all good! On a Tuesday, there was free alcohol, free finger food, I went inside a proper casino for the first time, so that was pretty neat. The party was held for all the verified managers in our area to come and have a great time. Rest assured, we had a hectic time.
Our management team met up and caught the train to Sydney. We got off at Central and caught the light rail to The Star Casino. Got checked for I.D because we ‘looked young’. Went to the bar, bought some cocktails that had a bad after-taste and continued Happy Hour with some spirits instead. We watched the older managers gamble a little, some won, some lost, my friend and I cheered, it was interesting to watch. Then we headed for the boat around 6:30 which departed at 7pm. They held some awards for us and we received a Drive-Thru Experience Award for our stores’ efforts throughout the year.
After that, we were free to eat, drink, dance, and mingle. It was super great fun to hang out with my co-workers outside of work as we all get along quite nicely and had a good laugh (with lots of drinks). Some absolute bangers popped up, so massive thanks to the DJ for being the maker of a great night. We cruised around Sydney Harbour, under the Harbour Bridge, and past the Opera House, next to Luna Park, all of which were amazing to see at night and from a water view. My first official McDonalds Christmas Party was lit and I had a really really great night. Honestly, can’t wait for the next one, it was mad fun. (Hint hint: a video will be up soon).
I haven’t blogged in 6 days and I apologise to you guys and myself for not making time. Although this is a reminder to have fun, (which is what I’ve been doing), (oh, I’ve also been working a lot). Work, sleep, smile has been my last 6 days. Which is great for my bank but I haven’t balanced out gym, blogging, my social life, or planning the next couple of months which are extremely hectic.
BUT, TONIGHT I AM ATTENDING A (VERY DELAYED) HARBOUR CRUISE CHRISTMAS PARTY WITH MY WORK. So that’s pretty cool and I’m excited! I even brought a new pair of pants for the occasion and they’re great. I did have to go and get the waist taken in a little which cost $5 but now they fit perfectly and I’m super happy with them! YAY!
ANYWAY; back to my reminder, HAVE FUN FRIENDS and I’ll be back tomorrow hopefully with another blog post and hopefully a cool video to edit and post on here!
I haven’t started Christmas shopping yet. Am I crazy, yes. Why yes I am. It’s the 4th of December and I haven’t started. Although I am very sure that my list of people to buy for isn’t that large I still end up spending a fair amount of money on the people I care about because they mean most.
I was speaking with some workmates and they were commenting on all the boyfriends’ mums friends they have to buy for and all their cousins’ partners or something. I am so glad I never crossed that path with the people I hang out with and don’t feel the need to buy for them. Sometimes it just gets so expensive and so stupid as the gifts you give or receive are useless. Like someone giving you a gift that you either don’t use or feel as though the gift has just been regifted to you.
I would love to know the worst gift you’ve been given from anyone. That would be a good read! I think my worst gift was from a relative (I will not give any detail on which relative). I have never been one to have pierced ears in my lobes (I had my helix pierced as a 16-year-old but I took it out) but from this relative, I got a bunch of really nice earrings??? hahaha. It was a great laugh and I think at one stage I gave one of the earrings to my boyfriend because he had his ear pierced and I didn’t. It did prove that this relative didn’t really know much about me though and has made me really think about the people I buy for and gift them something they will enjoy and use.
TELL ME YOUR WORST GIFTS (GIVEN OR RECEIVED)!
