Another day is about to end. Just earlier this morning, I made a declaration that I will choose happiness. Right now, I am writing this with a smile on my face.

I went out at exactly eight in the morning. I messaged the Municipal Health Office staff about the whereabouts of the doctor I am planning to meet, telling him the reason why I wasn't able to reach the doctor, because all offices operated half day yesterday. He responded by saying doc's in the vaccination center held at a campus.

I went there, and I was even lost for a bit, because I overlooked the university name plastered big and proud on the gate of the campus. I walked back and finally saw it, thanks to the people I asked assistance from.

It was a big school, and I was surprised by the volume of people lined up for either first or second dose of Moderna vaccine, free of charge, because it's cortesy of the local government unit. I asked around and was directed into the covered court, and I was told to wait because the doctor hasn't arrived yet.

I knew I should not just sit and wait, so I asked different staffs everywhere, and thank God, I was assisted by a kind staff and brought me to the doctor—it turned out he was there already LOL. In my mind, I just needed a medical certificate, and the doctor's sign on my form. So, i assumed it won't take long. But, the doctor told me a short "Later."

Wow, later? What time is that later? I mean, there are hundreds of people scheduled for vaccine today, was I supposed to wait until all of them are vaccinated? It's just a few papers and signatures I needed! Of course, these words were just kept to myself. I grew more anxious when I saw more people coming in as the minutes went by.

It took, I think, fifteen minutes, before I saw another staff, and took the courage to inquire again. This time, he asked me to hand him the papers for signing, and other documents necessary before the doctor would sign it. He told me he's giving it to the doctor. Thank God! He told me he'd just call me, but more mimutes went by again. The vaccination processes started. People were having their blood pressure tested, or filling out some kind of forms, some little consultation before the actual jab, and others. I grew impatient again. What a persistent girl I am. (laughs awkwardly).

Since the staff I last talked to was just walking around the same area to answer people's inquiries, I, again, ladies and gents, approached him. And even he's wearing a mask, I definitely sensed he smiled. I knew what he was thinking. I kept glancing to him from a distance so he won't get lost from my view. He must have thought I am an impatient person. I could not help it! I mean, my papers aren't with me. I was worried, of course.

He laughed and told me I might have to wait until 1 p.m. My, past lunch time. I did not show signs of despair and just kept my energy.

The waiting continued. I drank water, I wiped my sweat from time to time, because it was so hot early in the morning. I tried to read articles but I could not focus much because I was looking over constantly to the old man.

It was not long before he approached me to give back my papers, without a word. People came to him for inquiries so I could not talk to him again. I was puzzled. When he's alone again, I asked him, "What do I do.. with these..?" because I really thought nothing has been accomplished yet. He answered me, "Please check the attachments before you go, so we can fix if there's something wrong."

I immediately inspected the papers and my eyes lit up when I saw the med cert, and the other form, signed duly by the doctor! I had the biggest smile of relief! Finally! I repeatedly muttered my thanks to God, while checking the papers twice. I was so happy!

I could not help myself but approach the man again to thank him for his help. As my way of compensating him as well, because I pestered him quite a bit. Haha! He nodded and told me to take care going home. He's like an uncle.

Guess what time I came back home? 9:20 a.m. Only more than an hour from.the time I went out. It was easier and smoother than I thought! I know very well that God assisted me today. So, glory be to God for this achievement! Tomorrow, I can go back to work having all the necessary papers already.


With that being said, I am bringing back my sleep time rule again: Strictly 10pm sleep time.

Yesterday was the last day I am sleeping late on weekdays. I should get more sleep and come back stronger and healthier tomorrow.

To be honest, I still worry about what I will see tomorrow. It's like I am starting from zero again. How am I going to show my gratitude for people that took over the job for me while I was gone? I was thinking of treating them to a meal, but I know I can't because of the pandemic. I hope, I really hope I won't be awkward with them tomorrow, and vice versa.

I am getting rid of all the worries right now. The anxiety of what people may think of me, the fear of the virus, the lack of motivation, the exhaustion that the workload may cause, I am eliminating them right now, in Jesus' name. I know everything will be okay.

Everything will be back to its place again. Two or three days, maybe, I could function smoothly again, catch up woth all unattended workloads, and update all monitoring for different stuffs under my job description.

This will be the last time I am taking leave off work because of health related issues, may it be mine or my loved ones'.

I have all my work stuff prepared earlier this evening. My uniform, (thanks to mom who ironed it for me), my bag, food containers and water tumblers, and more. Wait, why do I feel like it's my first day again? Goodness, it feels funny.

Before I sleep, I want to thank God for helping me finish what has to be done so I could just go back to work tomorrow without any unfinished business. It may have caused me to delay by two days, but it's for the best. That meant more time to rest, and utilize the remaining relax time, since after that, I am gonna have to wake up early again. Special mention to my family who has been very supportive for whatever I've gone through. I always appreciate their genuine live and concern for me. I never felt alone nor neglected. And of course, to the read.cash and noise.cash family that helped me breathe out and express myself. Love y'all.

This is the story of how I wrote in my article a month ago that I need a Vacation, then it was granted through a month of quarantine thay felt more like a vacation, indeed. The vacation ends now.

Elle, back to work! Get moving now!

Oops, an hour before 10.

I'll be quick. I hope you read well this blog, so you would not have missed my thank you speech for the people that I met and trusted me in this platform, and in noise.cash, too, of course.

I never felt suffocated because I have an outlet I could gain strength from. Thank you so much. May God shower you with blessings and good health. I love you from the bottom of my hypothalamus.

Thanks for reading this. Until next time, my darlings!

I had a very unhelthy sleep cycle for the past month because I have no work. Now that I am working again, I should strengthen my immunity so I'd never get sick again.

I hope you'll have a healthy sleep habit soon, as well. Thank you for visiting. ♥️
