#WeekendCoffeeShare–The Anti-Coffee Share Edition

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.

  1. Ohhh a date! You will have to tell everyone how it goes! I am the same way, I am super shy and don’t know what the hell I am doing either when it comes to cute guys and dating lol. I hope you feel better soon! Get some good rest!


    1. haha, I’m sure I will. I’m simultaneously excited and nervous, but we seemed to really hit it off on Saturday, so I really shouldn’t be too worried. 🙂 I am feeling better today, after a couple days of serious resting.

  2. Hey Britta, sorry you aren’t feeling well. It does sound like you’ve been doing too much and a date with your bed sounds like a great idea. Now a date with a boy? That’s a good idea too 😊


    1. I really have been doing too much, I think. Working in such high humidity at the gas station certainly isn’t helping, either. I’m feeling much better today and I think the date is certainly a good idea. I’m nervous but also excited.

  3. Hehehe, hope you up and shining again Britta! A date, a trip, sounds like exciting days ahead…. Keep us in the loop 😉 X


  4. I hope your afternoon in bed is helping you feel better!! I totally know what you mean about working a lot–it takes a toll! Soak in that R&R/introvert time! And, if you choose to go out with the guy, don’t forget to tell us about it. I don’t go on dates either (scratch that… I NEVER go on dates), don’t get out in public much, and would love to live vicariously through you. 🙂


    1. I’m feeling much better today, Amelia. Thanks! I spent much of yesterday in bed, too, which certainly helped.
      Date is scheduled for Saturday. Kind of nervous but also really excited…we seemed to really hit it off on Saturday night and he’s the one that asked me out, so I really don’t know what I have to be nervous about. I’ll be certain to update you all on how it goes. 🙂

    1. Feeling better today, Lia. I spent most of yesterday in bed too, and I that helped. I’ve just been doing too much, I think, and need to remind myself to take it slow every now and then. I’ll for sure keep you all posted! 🙂

  5. First off, hope you feel much better now. The body knows when it needs to rest. Listen to it. Secondly, a BOY!!!! Now this is interesting. Just go with the flow. Cant wait to hear about it in your next coffee share. 🙂


    1. It sure does! I’m feeling better today. Thankfully I have Mondays and Tuesdays off because I spent much of yesterday in bed, too.
      It IS interesting. I really NEVER go on dates, so this is new and exciting! I’ll be sure to keep everyone here in the blogosphere updated. 🙂

  6. How you’re feeling better, Britta.
    Stupid question from a non native speaker. When do you say you were not into dating, what’s the opposite to it? And why it’d not be a good thing?
    Anyways, I cross fingers for you.


    1. Thanks Lucile, I’m feeling much better today.
      Not a stupid question at all! I may have not made myself quite clear. When I said wasn’t into dating, I meant that I’m just generally very introverted and quiet and don’t find myself in social situations where I meet people to go on dates. I’m not into online dating, either, and the dating apps like Tinder are NOT my thing. So, I just usually don’t go on dates. That said, recently, I’ve become a bit more confident in myself and I’m a bit more open to putting myself out there than I used to be–so, although dating is still pretty foreign to me, I’m open to trying it out. After all, although I’m perfectly happy being single now, I’d like to have a significant other someday, and dating is one of the best ways to find such a person. I wasn’t implying that it was a bad thing to not be into dating. More so, I’m just ready to explore dating a bit more than I used to be. Hope that makes sense!


  7. Sorry to hear that you weren’t feeling well.. Hope all is well now 🙂 Can’t wait to hear more about your date! You might as well give it a shot, be yourself and see where it takes you… You never know!
