I try not to make hasty judgements. Be nice and accommodating to everyone but not be walked on. I tolerate a lot and try to be a good friend to all. Work hard at seeing the positives and treat people in a way I would expect to be treated until they prove undeserving of that level of respect.
Doing this has taught me two things. Firstly, that no good deed goes unpunished. Secondly, my first impression of people is right about 99% of the time.
From my last blog I got a lot of good people giving me advice and I'm grateful for that. I took it all on board.
Please don't take my blog as moaning or anything. I write these things here because I don't want to burden my family back home by letting them know how unhappy and far away I am feeling right now. Neither do I want to piss off my employers. So unfortunately for the Ark, my blog is going to cop for this for a little while.
Thanks for the words of advice etc and please bear with my venting.
