I like my new job at the Corner Bakery Cafe in Anaheim Hills. But, I have a problem. Most of my co-workers are Spanish speaking and speak amongst themselves, leaving me to feel alone, left out and isolated. It's not intentional of course; Spanish is their primary language. The problem is that I don't understand most of what they're saying, so I find myself upset. My level of Spanish is intermediate. What should I do?

I signed up for a yoga class today. I am OH SO EXCITED! And, as for yesterday's feeling of aloneness, that has passed for now. Just letting the reader know. And, one of my friends called me this afternoon, and we met for dinner. She was so thrilled to get my Corner Bakery discount!! Anyways, like I was telling my other friend, Hanna, one thing I learned while in Korea the past 2 years is that TALKING is VERY VERY NECESSARY for our lives!! Tonight I got to talk, and LISTEN, to a friend tonight. More next time...

An overwhelming sense of aloneness today. Will that feeling ever end? Just for a moment, but long enough to bring me to tears. Tears brings a sense of relief though. Maybe my period is on it's way; I hope so; at least that would explain the emotions perhaps.

Monday morning, the day of my birthday, I had to work at 5:30 am. Oh my gawd, can you say early? I got to work with the best crew ever. They sang me happy birthday, to my embarrassment, and my manager bought a birthday cake. That was a really nice and unexpected gift. For dinner I went out to Mexican dinner with the family. Even my brother and his girlfriend gave me a card and a gift. I can't complain about this birthday because it was good. I got some really nice cards through the email as well, that were uplifting and encouraging. It is such a beautiful day today, sunny, and my day off, I must go do something fun!

I have the most hilarious co-workers in town. Mind you, I'm not a morning person. So, I start my shift at 7 am as a cashier in a local cafe. One morning last week, when I entered the store, my co-workders WELCOMED me with CHEERS of hellos, WARM greetings and a PARADE, all just for me!! OMG (oh my gawd), are they not funny? That was how my day started. Ya, ya, I love the attention. At least I know they like me!!
