day 2195 – walk in clinic

as much as i didn’t want to go back to work after a long weekend, i was less happy to be spending three and a half hours at a walk in clinic waiting for both the doctor and pharmacy. the mosquito bite flared up so bad overnight i didn’t get any sleep. i got up in the middle of the night to apply and reapply the hydrocortisone. when i woke up, my leg was so red and swelled up it no longer looked like a leg. the doctor prescribed the same antibiotics as last time. i guess that’s what i get for not finishing it last time

day 2173 – quote board

starting monday morning off with a new motivation quote hopefully to set my week off right. both my managers are back from vacation, so things should pick up pretty quickly. since i didn’t have a restful weekend, i was feeling pretty exhausted from the get go. my head hurt and my back ached. still, i must continue because the new marketing coordinator just started today

day 2079 – private gym

hitting up friend’s private gym just so i could get some quiet time away from people. it’s been a rather draining week at work when i got a few curve balls at the end of last week. i got all my renderings done one day before the deadline. the stress not only made me sleep deprived, but also caused extreme lows for my blood pressure and i almost fainted in the morning. still, i wanted to hit the gym and do my deadlifts and pullups. the weight felt super heavy, but at least i got it done

day 1862 – knee dimple

while on the ground rolling, i can’t help but notice a dimpled spot in my knee. it’s a short work week, but i’ve been more fatigue waking up every morning as the week wears on. what i really need is a vacation or some personal time off away from work. i must be really burnt out from not taking a vacation all year long. continuing the grind no matter what part of the week it is

day 1756 – japanese kitkat

coworker came back from japan trip with goodies to share. of the many flavors she brought back, i chose the matcha and sake. of the many kitkat flavors i’ve ever tried, matcha is still my favourite. a headache made me feel crappy this morning, i didn’t think i’d stay at the office the whole day. popping a few advils seemed to have helped me head and got me through the rest of it. calling it an earlier day and hopeful it gets better by tomorrow

day 1670 – morning runĀ 

treadmill in the morning is something i’d only do for the sunrun. i felt better than a typical day despite running fasted. no surprise i grabbed a smoothie to replenish and on my way to teach. my typical saturday is basically run and gun until dinner time so my ramen with parents is well earned. i’m no marathon runner and i don’t see myself ever transforming into one, but i’ll put up with it for as long as i can. i signed up for this challenge, so i’m going to keep going because what i put in is what i’ll get out of it

day 1562 – quiet zone

spacious parking this morning as my side of the office was very quiet today. many people are out somewhere either at tradeshows or off for the long weekend. rumour has it i’m good at handling myself and doing my own work, but much too quiet especially as of late. they told me talking more to express myself will help unclutter things off my and and my head. there are just things i’d rather keep inside than burden others. these are the things only i’ll understand
