Life has kind of been a nightmare this semester, especially this past week.
I work at least 32 hours a week on top of classes. The only day I'm off I have class so I don't even get a full day to myself to relax or sleep in and do homework. I know many people have full time positions and go to school every day ( I got lucky here ), but I still don't know how they do it without collapsing. Going to work 6 days a week is hard when you have schoolwork to upkeep and a social life to try and squeeze in.
Also, I've been sick for about two to three weeks with some stomach virus. I went to the doctor and they suggested that I relax, but I have no time to do that. I've just kind of been feeling crummy and really need a week or two away from work. However, I'm certain I won't get that because we're so severely understaffed. I have also missed a lot of classes and I'm sure that'll bite me in the ass soon.
To top this all off... the boyfriend got in a car accident on 10/2. It was raining really bad and he was going into work in the early hours of the morning and I got a phone-call around 7am stating he had been hit by a dump-truck. I've been dealing with this for the past few days, his car being totaled. I'm just glad he still has transportation. I feel awful for him and that I can't do anything, but I'm trying.
Then one of my coworkers and friends decides to try and commit suicide for the second time in a short period. It's stressful. I care for this person and I don't know why they won't just talk to me or their friends. I just wish that they would get help or at least accept it. I don't know what I would do if this person actually attempted and succeeded. They don't know how much they mean to people. I also really hope that they aren't doing it for attention because it has been speculated (not by just me) and I honestly can't handle it.
In more recent events - last night we got a new menu change at work. This was stressful as all get-go. We have so many more choices and there's things that change every night ( that I think is ridiculous ). Mind you, I work at a senior community center in their little "restaurant". It's a nice place that is really expensive. Though, they can't remember half the things I have to list off. It was just kind of chaos and we were really busy because it was end of cycle ( which means they need to spend their money because it doesn't roll over ). Well, someone started choking in my section and paramedics were called and I'm really close to most all of my residents so it was a really big emotional time.
I'm just hoping that life goes up-hill from here. I keep telling myself it can go nowhere but up, but it has yet to show me the light to that path just yet. I'll just keep hoping and wishing the best.
