The last few weeks were hectic and my last day of training (for now) has come and gone. Unfortunately, my last day didn’t go as well as I expected. You see, I have a certain love for a certain fast-food restaurant in Australia called KFC. Yes, that’s Kentucky Fried Chicken. It’s a really gross habit, but for some reason, I love it. To make matters even worse, it’s a 2 minute walk away from where I live, so there is really easy access. The night before, I decided that I was going to eat it knowing that sometimes it upsets my stomach. (I have a really sensitive stomach. I always have had one.) So I ended up filling my belly full of grease the night before and starting at 3 am, my gastrointestinal tract was in full payback mode. I was throwing up and on the toilet most of the morning. I didn’t have any cramps or fever, but my body was just rejecting what I ate the night before.
I got to my training place feeling completely drained (literally) and told someonee I wasn’t feeling that great. They asked me why and I told them what my morning was like and that I was really, really tired. They told me to leave, so I did. I spent my morning trying to get that under control, trying to book a doctor’s appointment nearby (my usual doctor is about an hour and a half away), and just running around. I wasn’t having any major problems at all. The doctor told me that I cannot go back for 24 hours, so that was that. I was really upset because the hours I miss, I have to make up.
Everybody at the place I went to thought I had gastroenteritis (some people call it a stomach flu) but I pretty much knew that it was just a mix of eating the wrong thing the night before and my anxiety of finally getting to the end of this part of my training. So yeah, I was pretty bummed out for the whole day and it carried over until today. My belly is okay but still a bit grumbly.
So yeah, it’s time for me to relax a little bit and start the long, boring process of getting my paperwork together and finally getting to use my new iMac. Guys, the resolution on this thing is simply incredible! It’s good to go back to Mac.
It’s good to be able to spend some time with my partner too, though I’ve been glued to this screen. He’s a good sport.
I still love you, KFC. Don’t worry, we’ll always be together. 5ever.
