My experience of living with Aquamarine;
At the start of the week I got in touch with a few friends that I hadn’t had time to see in a while as we were all busy. I also had a deep conversation with a friend about a potentially awkward subject, but it went really well with understanding from both of us. This was the last week in my accounts job and so I did some training with the lady who would be taking over from me, giving clear concise instructions and being tolerant whilst she was learning the skills. I felt very motivated by the end of the week getting lots done and being very productive.
