I’ve gone round the bend, friends. I have this interview at 2pm, and I think I may have temporarily misplaced my mind.
I woke up in the middle of the night for no reason, and then again at 6:30am. I am totally exhausted from this, on the day when I need to be most awesome. I also had a very weird and long dream that involved running around a parking structure, and a magical apartment that I live in in my dreams that has 6 bedrooms and only 2 roommates, and, as of last night, houses a children’s French class in the attic.
I need to start getting more regular exercise again. I have been neglecting yoga and running, and basically eating only takeout food and coffee. No wonder I feel gross and can’t sleep. My response to stress is usually to step back and stay at home, but the last few weeks have been so social now that fall is here and people are back from vacations. I have stopped making time for exercise, which is not good.
Get it together, me. Mostly just hold it together until 3pm, and then you can be a huge mess.
I did email my supervisor to let her know I needed to come in late. It is good for me to remember to prioritize my needs (like getting an extra hour of sleep, taking a shower and drying my hair so that I look and feel good for my interview) over my temp job. It is just a temp job. They aren’t going to fire me for being late on day. They know that my interviews are important, so I need to act like they are important and treat myself well.
I am going to make Thai Chicken Curry tonight from a recipe recommended on my friend’s blog, Bull City Runner Girl. If I learn how to make it myself, I will be infinitely more happy and less poor than ordering in all the time.
Okay, Earth, let’s do some data gathering until 1pm. Think of me. Give me a spiritual hug at 2pm.
