Woke up at 3h30 this morning, that’s damn early. I wouldn’t necessarily say I’m not a morning person, once I actually manage to get up and dressed I can be quite bubbly. I’m that person in the queue at the airport at 5h30 greeting everyone I have to interact with and asking how they are. Whilst everyone stares at me like I’m nuts.
I’m on my way to East London to visit my folks, so excited because I haven’t seen them since December. Way too long ago as far as I’m concerned. Just a short trip though, it’s the annual “long weekend” trip.
I have been looking forward to this weekend for a very long time, the break away from Joburg and work is really welcoming. I’m mentally tired. Also I have a cold so it’ll be good for my body to actually rest. I hate getting sick, it’s the pits.
Work this last week has been so amazing, I haven’t felt this alive in ages. It’s exciting again, it’s challenging and I’m already looking forward to how much I am going to learn from the new boss.
For the last couple of years I’ve been in this whole “balance” phase which is amazing! I mean to be able to balance work, fitness, family, friends, traveling and partying and actually get it right is a big thing.
Balance is great BUT for the first time in absolute ages I am willing to let a few of those things take a little bit of the back seat, they’re going to get a smaller piece of the balancing cake. My career is about to boom again, I can just freaking feel it. And that’s going to take a big piece again. All those other things are still important to me though, I’m not going to go backwards, because that’s just silly.
I won’t mind working the longer hours and taking on more stressful projects again, I live for that shit. As long as I can make it to spinning every other odd day, I’ll be ok. We all have to have some form of release. Fitness & gym is definitely my release.
I’ve seriously gotten over drinking, not that I drank a lot before. But I don’t enjoy it that much anymore, and I don’t like how it makes my body feel afterwards. Gross.
As for me being single, I don’t mind it at all. The emotional pain that comes with being with the wrong person can be so detrimental to a persons life and state of mind sometimes. I’ve been hurt by getting my hopes up way too many times over the last 4 years. There’s someone who I’m enjoying at the moment, whatever it is it’s chilled and I haven’t laughed and been able to be my “silly” self in ages. It’s actually just so nice to chat to someone that can appreciate that I’m a little nuts sometimes.
August is looming around and I’m starting to freak out about how much I already have planned for the month already. Eek. Oppikoppi is from the 7th – 10th, got my tickets, don’t have signed off leave. Eff. Birthday is on the 17th, thank goodness it’s a Sunday! I don’t even know what I’m doing this year. Ant & Irene’s wedding is on the 22nd, it’s a Friday. I don’t have signed off leave, a dress or someone to go with. Bigger eff. Hahaha. We shall cross this bridge when we get there!
I’m so excited about the trip in September to Bali with my Mom. It’s going to be an absolutely amazing experience. She’s my everything.
