I hosted a dinner for my colleagues today. I’m having the house for myself, because my sister is on a holiday for two weeks. I’ve been thinking to organize a get-together for a while now and when I asked around they seem to be up for it as well.
At the time when I was planning to have this gathering, it was still uncertain whether I would stay on as a youth worker for ‘van Houten&co’ or not. Nevertheless, I still wanted to host this dinner because I really like the team of colleagues that I work with. An atmosphere of a working environment is very important to me. You could give me all the money in the world, but if I don’t like the atmosphere, I wouldn’t take the job.
Therefore I’m REALLY pleased that I get to stay on. Not only do I get to do the work that I love to do, but I also get to continue working with this bunch of crazy, funny and likable people! It’s a shame for them though, now they’re still stuck with me. Oh well, guess they just need to get use to all my weirdness ;-)
The entire team was present tonight, which I really really really appreciated! I think that they’ve enjoyed themselves, I know that I did. I’m looking forward to what is yet to come. I get to continue my work with people I like, my new study is about to start and I still get to do all the other things that I love on the side. Bao-Nhi’s life is starting to get back on track...
Signing off feeling very blessed and grateful... have a good August everybody!
Lots of love,
