I wonder when I am going to catch a break some days where I will lull into a long period of good vibes and contentment and nothing bad will happen. Monday saw the radiator of my car blow while I was waiting for a drawbridge to go up. Luckily, I was able to pull off on a grass shoulder and had a bit of good karma when a mechanic stopped, put an entire jug of antifreeze into my busted radiator, which allowed me to drive down the road to the garage. Granted, the new radiator cost me another unwanted 500 dollars, but it is cheaper than a new car. But like most people, it always comes at the most inopportune time.
I feel like there’s this constant theme of me not being able to catch a break. I feel slightly grateful because I have a really good friend that I have been able to vent to about all this, because she too is dealing with things similar to this, especially the car problems. But when it rains, it pours.
Other than that, it’s just trying to get through the routine. Work is for the most part, work. I am working six days (closing five of those) and I typically get one day off. This past weekend was extremely slow with the fourth of July weekend and lucky for me, I was shift leading for most of it, but my Friday night bar shift was a struggle. Trying to get a bit healthier in life by cutting back on my drinking and snacking too recently. It isn’t easy but each small step towards the right direction. And there’s always the money issues, trying to wrangle in my finances is ever a challenge.
This is what life is I guess. Till then, just trying to get along.
