Now, this was an unpleasant way to end and start the week. New at the company, and all I can find myself doing is catching the flu just as the winter finally ends. Not a great feeling when you are lying in bed, waking up and realising that your nose hates you. I think it is annoyed at me for using scented candles at home, so that I would not have to constantly have that office smell on me. Also, they were what my Ex left behind and I really wanted to get rid of them some way without wasting them. I mean, what kind of monster would I be to just throw away scented candles from my ex-girlfriend? I already wasted enough when I threw out all her other stuff that she left behind. Have to chose your battles wisely, my grandfather always said! He truly was a wise man, even if he loved throwing out sayings one after another. To this day, I never understood how he was able to keep that up consistently.
Sadly, I lost my entire Friday and Monday at work, so on one hand I got a longer weekend, but at the same time I was stuck in my bed. The true fight was between me and my bedsheets, as I could not decide if I wanted to stay cool, or sweat as much as possible to get rid of my flu as fast as possible. I could not deny that part of me thought if I did not move at all and stayed sick, just maybe I could potentially stay home longer. Not proud of that thought, but then my honour simply pushed me further to make sure that I wouldn't get too lazy. Sadly, I had to admit defeat on Monday, as I still was not able to go to work. At that point, i realised that either I am overstressed at work, or absolutely bored while lying in bed at home. Like a vicious cycle, I couldn't do anything but hope i get better and dream I could stay in bed forever.
