"...And I know just why you could not come along with me, 'cause this was not your dream, but you always believed in me..."
So, this is going to be a random one. This week has been a roller coaster for me. Firstly, I finally started feeling better after my dance off with the Swine Flu. Like most dance offs, I ended up the loser. Now, get this. At my new job, I was discussing with a co-worker about how some people that I formerly had worked with were diagnosed with swine flu. Well, this nosy heifer overheard my conversation and calls the HR department and turns me in! Next thing that I know, someone is over telling me that I have to leave the office until I come back with an official note saying that I am all clear and healthy. I go to the doctor's office and he says, "you don't even have a fever, if you were contagious it would have been last week and they would have already been exposed!" I told him that I knew that but that they were insistent. So, he gives me a note and off to work I go. I get back and no one even mentions it again! No one saw the note, nothing! I was livid! I had to spend $91 bucks for a note from some random doctor! I wanted to kick that nosy cow in her forehead. After that, I had to go to the pharmacy to get my asthma inhaler and out of nowhere, this man is yelling at the pharmacist, "My wife has a rash on her vagina! She needs some cream!" I look around thinking what the F is going on and then he yells, "Yes. A rash on her vagina, her outer vagina. What is it called again? Oh yeah, her major labia!" The pharmacy was packed full of people and he is screaming about his wife's rashy business! What is wrong with people?!?! And then tonight, I was on the train coming back home and it was packed full of drunkies and this girl pulls a piece of gum out of her mouth and goes to throw it at her friend's head and it hits me. Randomly, the used piece of 'effin bubble gum hits me! Luckily, the world has already broken my spirit enough, so I didn't feel the need to karate chop her in her esophagus. Again, I just keep on going! On a different note and this will not make my Mom happy to read this, but ever since I have been here, I have had small bouts with home sickness. Nothing major because I prepped myself that coming here meant sacrifices and you just deal with it. But this week has been a little rough. It is only in the early morning when I am first at work but I just feel sick, like I need to be home immediately. I think that it has a lot to do with the fact that my internet capabilities are not like they once were and I can't use Skype with them regularly. Talking on the phone is one thing but seeing people over the computer is another. It helps a lot. But, I am here and I do like it here and everyday is an adventure going down as a part of my life story.
