I remember looking forward to Bank Holidays for the extra day off, but now I actually want to work them because of extra money.
I won't be working next Monday though because I'm off to Ireland for a holiday!
I can't believe they are allowed to make people give up their bank holiday especially how people fought for them in the past. Of course people can still work them but I believe they should get overtime pay.
School was absolute hell for me, so I really could care less about reunions or meeting up with anyone from that period. Aside from Neil and work aquaintances, I actually don't have any friends to speak of, and, tbh, I really don't feel like I'm missing out. I think you tend to become more selective as you become older with regards to who you choose to develop friendships with anyway, and one or two close friends are certainly more valuable than 1000+ Fakebook "friends" - I see many comments on YouTube that follow along the lines of "hey, I don't know you, but I like your art - let's be friends!"
I consider myself a friendly and approachable person; I'm just not prepared to invest my time and energy into something that's superficial!
