I am glad I woke up.
Last night I fell asleep around 10:30pm. I was exhausted. So exhausted that I did not wake up until 9:30am this morning. I was able to get a lot of sleep, 11 hours, but my body wanted more. It almost felt like I needed a short-term comma. Just for a day.
Awake and ready to concur the day I got dressed and headed out. I needed to be at the café by noon. Since I skipped out on breakfast I decided to stop somewhere along the way. I passed McDonalds, Dunkin’ Donuts, Starbucks. None of them interested me. Luckily, I spotted a Panera Bread. That was it! A superfruit smoothie and triple berry scone for the road.
Made it a bit after 12pm.
The lady I work with just started to do business. Shortly after, she left me. Today we were going to be running separate shifts. Me at the café for lunch and early dinner, she in Jersey City for dinner. The café during the week is not that busy so I was fine with it.
But before she left to JC she had a kitchen to check out. It was for rent two blocks away. If she can get it, it will really help grow the business. Also, it is convenient.
Finding things to do.
Throughout the day I tried to keep myself busy. I completed my tasks for the day – cutting up vegetables, cooking, cleaning – within a few hours. With that out of the way I was able to solely focus on my customers. Smile, make small talk, just get the crowd to notice I was there.
In between doing that I read the Money magazine from yesterday. I had half of it to go and want to know if any of it was worth retaining. Found an awesome piece that I might transcribe so I can share it. I looked for it online but no luck. I also worked on post for the blog. Scheduled a few things and did some edits on others. I think I was productive.
Since I had time I went over to Greenstraw to look at their menu. I am allergic to fruit so finding something that is not potent or potentially life threatening is hard. Fortunately for me the guy knows his menu and was able to make me something new. His favorite drink. It involved cinnamon and it was great. Nothing I expected. I thought the cinnamon would have been over powering but it was not in the slightest.
Around 6:45pm I started to clean up. Washed dishes, put the food away, washed and sanitized the counters. The guy – her family friend – who comes in tomorrow should be set to go.
Why did I drink so much!?
By 7:45pm I was out of there. The last thing I wanted was to be left alone in that place. At night they shut most of the lights off leaving an eerie feel to the place. Shivers.
On the road home I stopped at my new favorite gas station. A BP with the price of $2.67. Man is that cheap. Where I live, that price does not exist. I honestly did not even need it but topped off my tank anyway.
Then 30 minutes from home I had to stop again. I drank too much and needed to use the bathroom. After that juice early, right before I left, I was given a bubble tea from Mr. Wish. Out of excitement I could not resist drinking it. I thought I could hold it but my bladder said otherwise. Thankfully, I made it in time because the gas station had shut down the moment I left. I could see the lights turning off as I drove away. Phew.
Finally home I jumped in the shower. While in there I watched an episode of “Dragon Ball.” Gotta love Samsung for waterproofing their phones. It is awesome. Then out of the shower I heated up food and ate.
By 11:30pm I was in bed watching someone play Dragon Ball Fighterz on Twitch. Then I remembered I forgot to write in my journal. Cannot sleep without doing that. It is best to get it off my chest and clear my mind before sleeping.
Back to bed by 12:30am.
Girlfriend got upset with me and I could not figure out why. I think me being clueless made it worse. It was not a good night for us. It did not help that yesterday did not go as planned either. I also fell asleep on her too. Sheesh, me, get it together.
