I Salute!!!

Today was my third training day. Boy, after three days, I TOTALLY SALUTE all those people whose jobs involve almost non-stop physical activities.

Yesterday I was faced with a somewhat funny dilemma hi hi hi hi...My task was to wrap some souvenirs with some plastic and then I had to tie each of them with string and make a little bow there and then cut off the rest of the plastic (the plastic came in a roll, so I had to figure out myself how much was needed to pack the whole thing).

Actually, the first day I also did the same thing, but since it was only 3 hours straight, it was fine. Now yesterday I kept on doing it for around 6,5 hours and after a while my legs got so sore, so I took a stool and right away my legs thanked me TREMENDOUSLY. However, my arms started to protest HA HA HA HA HA...Why? Because I had to held both arms high up to wrap each souvenir and it just started to feel like exercising (honestly!!!).

Today my task was to put price tags on some things (which was nothing much), folded about 20 T-shirts, then I was told to clean up the shelves. Cleaning up the shelves turned out to be SO exhausting. Why? Because on the shelves and tables there are so many small, (mostly) fragile items that needed to be moved first elsewhere. And some of them were heavy. One time I wanted to sit down so much that I just sat on the floor for a few seconds when nobody was around HA HA HA HA HA HA HA...

And embarrassingly enough, I managed to drop some stuff on the floor where there were customers, BUT thankfully, they were made of wood, so they weren't broken or anything. PHEW!!!!!!!

Anyway, I really can't figure out now how much I've taken some people for granted: those people who have to pick heavy things and move them to different places...they're really something!!! I'm STANDING here, saluting all those people whose jobs are so heavy-duty (so to speak). *bowing*

I had been sitting in the classroom for a few months now (from 9 am till 3 pm) and even though I've been exercising twice a week, my body still feels like breaking down at the end of the day. Goodness! How "unfit" I am LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL!!! But this goes to show that I don't think I'm capable of doing this type of work. Of course I can get used to it, but I think I'm more of an office type of person, thank you very much hi hi hi hi hi...

I'm going to need a full-body massage after this training ends HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA...(Yeah, right, as if I didn't want it even though I hadn't done the training - I'm a massage maniac!!!! *WINK*)

Okay, time to blog-hop...but if I get too tired, I'll do it later this weekend, okay? I miss you guys and I'm not forgetting you, but I'm just so exhausted every time I come back home that what I want to do is just SLEEP, SLEEP, and SLEEEEEEPPPPP (oh, and eat, too!) ;-D


  1. just take a good rest, Amel.

  2. get plenty of rest!! Miss You I'm finally getting back!

  3. haha, you need to go and exercise a bit more amel. perhaps do some weights :)

    but at least you're burning calories hmm

  4. Jul: THANKS, I will! ;-D

    Kasper: Oh, you're back now? I'll visit you later today, OK?

    Shan: I don't like doing weights 'coz I did it when I was in Indo and it made me look bulkier. I'm short enough already (145 cm), so I need to look slimmer, not bulkier. If I look bulkier, I look even shorter HE HE HE HE...

    This is one reason I LOVE Taebo without doing slims down my legs and arms and tummy without making me look "bulkier" he he he...

    But yeah, at least I do burn calories HO HO HO HO HO HO HO...

  5. Hi Amel, I may have missed some posts. What training are you undergoing now? You started working is it? ;)

  6. so you are an expert now after the training? ..

  7. I've missed some posts too. Are you working now Amel?

  8. Janice, WaterLearner, Fish: It's a compulsory 15-day training after our Finnish course was done. So I'll only be training for 15 days in a local shop here and then go back to the classroom for 3 last days and that's it.

    Ideally after the training the employer will want to hire you, but it's a fat chance he he he he...
