So, today is my last day of unemployment. You think I’d be nervous, but I’m not. I’m not really feeling much of anything. I guess it’ll hit me tomorrow. This is hopefully the start of my next journey. I just hope I found it as enjoyable (and educational) as my last one.
I’d been feeling pretty under the weather from the migraine that had carried on from the previous day. It’s a weird one too. I’ve had my fair share of them but this one isn’t normal. I woke up at 1am with the top of my jaw and ears hurting just as much as my head. I took more painkillers and went back to sleep. Woke up and my ears were really sore again, though my headache and jawache were basically gone. My headache came back about 9am, so I took more painkillers. It’s been okay most of the day, though my ears are both really sore again now, as are my eyes. It’s really annoying because I can’t afford to get sick, and I’m worried it’s the beginning of ear infections. The last time I had an ear infection was during a trip across Australia when I was about 14. It was the worst pain of my life. I was screaming and sobbing while my parents were frantically trying to find a doctor still open at 8pm in a foreign city. I can’t afford to go through that again, particularly when I’m about to start a new job. I’m just hoping it’ll fix itself and painkillers will do their job until that happens.
I went for my walk about lunchtime. I wasn’t going to waste my last day off, although as always, I was tempted. I got home and napped in the afternoon, hoping resting would ease my incoming illness. I don’t know if it helped. It doesn’t feel like it did. I ate dinner late, as I just wasn’t hungry. I knew I couldn’t go without though, so I eventually made myself something healthy and forced it down. Skipping meals isn’t a good idea for weight loss or for keeping healthy.
Tomorrow will be a big day, I can feel it. Meeting a whole bunch of new people, in a new place, in the city which is always congested. I don’t see it being a fun experience for me, but I know it has to be done. At least I feel like once I get this out of the way, I’ll enjoy the job much more than the one I was doing (temporarily). I hate being the newbie and feeling out of my depth, but I know it has to happen, whether it’s with this job or another one. Everyone has to go through it before they become one of the team. I just need to suck it up and try to learn things as quickly as possible.
I think I’m gonna head to bed now. My ears are really starting to ache. I hope they don’t get much worse. Now is not the time, body!
