I write this from my bed. Where I have been convalescing for most of the afternoon.
Sorry, it’s not that I don’t want to catch up with y’all. I’m just not feeling too hot right now.
That said, I do have some sharing to do, so let’s just make this a short and sweet update of a post.

If we had plans for coffee, I’d have to cancel because, as stated above, I’ve been in bed most of the afternoon.
I’m actually supposed to be at work right now, but I left after 3.5 hours of my eight hour shift because I felt like I was going to pass out standing up. I didn’t arrive at work feeling ill. Just a little tired. I got some coffee thinking I just needed a bit more caffeine (the perks of working at an espresso bar…I can just pour myself a cold press if I please, which is what I did). Needless to say, that didn’t work and I just ended up feeling worse. So, at around 2:45, I told the kitchen staff that I wasn’t feeling well and headed home to bed.
Needless to say, I think I’ve been overexerting myself. I’ve been working overtime a lot lately and agreed to work an hour late on Friday because two of the kitchen staff who are trained to work the espresso bar who usually work on Friday were gone–one was sick and one was traveling. That left two staff members who are properly trained to work the espresso bar–one of the kitchen managers and myself–and since Friday’s are so busy at the restaurant next door–well, he was needed in the kitchen and I was needed that extra hour at the espresso bar.
I worked from 8-4 yesterday and then had a late night with friends enjoying a fabulous fireworks show at the Minneapolis Aquatennial. I’m not getting enough sleep as it is since apparently I want to do so much with my life and working 8 hours everyday in this humidity we’ve been having here (in a gas station that has no airflow whatsoever) probably isn’t helping.
On another note, I met a guy last night. He wants to hang out sometime. I think like a date. I don’t go on dates, people. The last date I went on was with my ex-boyfriend, whom I broke up with almost two years ago.
I’m just not the dating type of girl. I didn’t used to be the dating type of girl, but I’m interested in it now. That said, I’m painfully shy in these sorts of situations, so the prospect of hanging out with him actually freaks the hell out of me. However, I felt really comfortable around him last night and he was super friendly and easy going so I think I might take him up on his offer. I told him about Thailand, so he knows I’m not really available for anything long term at the moment, but in the Facebook message I received earlier today, he said he enjoyed talking to me last night and would like to get to know me better.
So, I’ll just see what happens with that.
For now, I’m going to get back to the date I have with my bed.
