I have exactly 5 days to come up with a new track. My mind is blank. It’s some stupid talent show then I’m never going to even come close to winning. In reality, all “talent” shows are really popularity contests anyway.
All my songs are about drinking, mental illness and mythical creatures anyway.
So that’s why I should probably write something new…
I also published an online “Burn Book” which was brought up in assembly and was nearly reported to the police. Everyone else tried to copy, but I was the original. I’m very proud of myself. I was “that girl” that got bullied and picked on every single day… they deserved everything…
So I’m like, pretty ill. I can already hear my mum saying “You’re not that ill if you’re sitting at your computer”. But I AM that ill and I’ve been in bed all day drinking Lemsip and sucking on Soothers.
I planned my recovery so that I’d call in sick tomorrow and then I’m off anyway on Wednesday. So plenty of time to recover.
I just got a message from a co-worker saying “Thank’s for swapping shifts, you’ll be working 8:45 on Wednesday instead of Thursday. You’re a star!”. I forgot all about that! So much for my 3 day recovery.
The thing is, despite working with so many people, I still feel bad if I need to take the day off because I feel I’ll let someone down. I really could have done with the day off yesterday but I knew everybody would be cursing my name if they found out I called in sick.
I’m working 3-9:30 today. What’s up with that?! Starting at THREE?! Bloody ridiculous. I’m feeling ill but I’m going in just to prove a point. So many people were off yesterday which made it hard on everyone else.
Last week I came into work with mild neurapraxia and nasty migranes even though I was told by my doctor to rest at home. It’s stupid when people think it’s okay to take a few days off with a sniffly nose and a headache.
