I hate how I waste so much time when I’m off work. I’ve done nothing productive the week, apart from washing all my bed linen and walking the dog for at least an hour every day down the country roads. But apart from that I’ve been sat in front of my laptop (playing Be A Tycoon on Bebo and SimCity4 obsessively) or catching up on TV shows that I seem to have missed huge chunks of over the past few weeks. I might want some inspiration…
I suppose in some sense, that was productive. But I haven’t done what I should have this week. Important things like studying for my personal license exam which is next week, or finishing decorating the hall upstairs which my mother started before she headed to Hong Kong and Australia. She’s a bit like me that way, starting something but not finishing it. It one of my worst traits. It’s the exam bit that’s worrying me, if I don’t pass it then I don’t get a personal license certificate and then I can’t be granted a premises license to sell alcohol and thus can’t be a store manager anymore. That’s a biggie.
I suppose I still have the entire weekend to study the book that I’ve been given, but it’s so much reading. A lot of the information I already know but because the law’s changing there’s so much new stuff to cram into my head, and lots of changes. Like the hours you can legally sell or buy alcohol; that’s going to be a good one explaining to customers since it shortens the hours during the day when you can purchase alcohol by 2 hours. Which is a lot, really since at the moment you can only sell booze for 14 hours a day at the moment in a store like mine.
Ah well, I did well in my exams at school by leaving everything to the last minute, I’m sure I’ll be fine. And on that note, I’m going back to my game.
