Took a day off work today

by | Mar 25, 2014 | Opinion

I’ve been infected somehow as I had to miss a day of work today. I’ve been a complete mess since Sunday. Friday evening was fine. Saturday… well, was also fine. Aside from the fact I fell down the stairs with a plate in my hand. I had to go out and buy a new plate. I’m not putting that down to old age, but the fact that my head was spinning from Friday evening where I had drunk too much. I still managed to go to the gym on Saturday and Sunday. But Sunday evening was just terrible. I couldn’t sleep, I was heating up, even though it wasn’t that hot, and I just didn’t feel right. I likely caught some germ/bug whilst at the gym. I bought myself a packet of Lockets, which helped me sneeze quite a bit, but I still felt quite awful. Thus why I did not go in to work today. I did try working from home, but that didn’t work out well, and I just fell asleep.

I know I have to go into work tomorrow, no matter what. There’s just too much work to be done and taking 2 days of work off at the moment isn’t going to work without disrupting the workflow. (I try my best to be a good employee)

We’ll see how it goes tomorrow. I feel like this at the moment:

Work I haven't done meme

I’m actually feeling quite anxious, as I have two presentations to give this week. Oh, and did I say that I’m really bad at public speaking? It’ll be a test, as I haven’t really been tested for this sort of stuff yet, but we’ll see how it goes. I definitely won’t be chicken and not turn up. What deters me is the fact that I could humiliate myself and that would effectively ruin my self-esteem.

I have not run properly in a good while so I found today's run quite tough actually. It was definitely not an easy run - given that Christmas and New Year's had me eat a lot of food and frankly, I've not been eating with health in mind - let's just say. So as part of...
