Sick in Bed
It's winter here in South Africa for just a few more days, then Spring is hitting us - hopefully with full force.
I love the rain, storms and cold IF I am safely tucked away in bed, preferably close to a lit fire along with copious amounts of hot chocolate (or wine, depending what time it is...) and a good book.
A friend of mine, Jessie, tagged me in this adorable quote today that I couldn't help but share with you all:
She told me that it reminded her of me. How sweet is that!?
Anywho... so today I have woken up with quite a painful and large spider bite on my chest which has inevitably left me feeling pretty awful. I have a roaring temperature and am in and out of dizzy states.
I went to the doctor first thing and they have booked me off work and thrusted me some anti-biotics and pain killers to help.
To be honest I've been needing the break. I only just started my new job at this real-estate agency but at the exact same time I started studying my photo journalism course too. Not only that but I also have to study my NQF4 and PDE to become a qualified estate agent so things have been craaazy lately. Juggling a social life on top of all of that .... some would say its impossible. By the time I finish work at five, cracking the spines of my textbooks open is the LAST thing I want to do.
It's great to be able to lounge around in bed a bit and update my blog... it's great to be able to just take a few hours to relax! I do still need to be studying my course though - which I will get around to after this post.
I've become so distant towards my blog over August because of travelling to Tanzania where there honestly just wasn't time to blog and also as soon as I got back life just hit me in the face, breaking my proverbial nose and knocking out a few teeth while it did so!
Hopefully I will find a pattern of some sort soon. I'm sure things will get easier as the time goes on and that overwhelming feeling cluttering up my head-space has settled.
So... this is what my next two days will be entailing:
The book I'm busy reading at the moment (really good!)
Tomorrow I'll do my fashion post of the week, probably along with a lovely sickly photo of how awful I look just to show you that we're all human! Someone recently sent me a message saying, 'Why do you always look so good!?' and I almost laughed. Crickey.. you should see me in the mornings. Usually it looks like I've been electrocuted.
So I thought it would be a really cool way to show you all that its something we shouldn't be ashamed of.
That's all tomorrow!!!
Have a goodie!!!
