Day 9 in L.A.
KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT, TRICIA!!
Friday is one of the sweetest days of the week. Not only is it the end of being at the j.o.b., but for me, it is the day before I move into my new place. It's not all mine but it’s a start. I don’t even mind the fact that I have five other roommates. I’m just glad I have a stable place to lay my head, comfortably at night. Thankfully, the apartment complex has a few very nice amenities. It has a free pool, a jacuzzi, and a decent work out room. All seems to be well with that.
I didn’t think it was going to happen, but I got one last paycheck from my last job at the clinic. It wasn’t much, but, it definitely helps. I haven’t eaten dinner in three or four days, so when I got that extra money added to my account, I went all out when I know I shouldn’t have. I went and ordered B-Dubs (Buffalo Wild Wings) and it was awesome! I’ll feel better if I cooked though. I can’t remember the last time I had a home-cooked meal.
Something interesting happened at work today. I had a good morning. I knew how to make all the drinks and remembered which buttons to press on the register. It felt good to finally know what to do without asking for help. I even got to know many of the students and teachers. The fashion majors excite me the most. Ever since I was little, I had a thing for fashion. At one point, I wanted to design clothes with a friend of mine in high school. Then I realized my passion for making clothing wasn’t as strong as it was for writing. I still love fashion though. The day was going by smooth until the middle of the day when the supervisor showed up. I don’t think she likes me. She’s very withdrawn and doesn’t like to engage in conversation with me. Sometimes, when I am talking to her, she doesn’t even look me in the eye. Her vibe is just off. I’m not going to say that I don’t like her per say, but I don’t. Her attitude stinks. Although, there’s a fact that I must remember that everyone does not have a heart like me. I can’t expect for people to be as bubbly or enthused as I am. Everyone is not my friend. That energy can be heartfelt from one form to another because it is so powerful.
I felt that since I had a little more money in my pocket than yesterday, I can put myself into a hotel for the night. Sleeping in my car was about to become a thing of the past. Besides, I needed to elevate my swollen legs because they were becoming worse. That morning they were so tight and puffy, I could barely drive. It was light weigh painful. And! I thought a nice shower couldn’t hurt me none.
A close friend of mine has the hook up with the hotels. When I used to ball out back in 2015, I would take trips by myself to recharge under his name. I would pay less and stay longer. So, today was no different. He made sure to tell me to remember to say who he was to me so I wouldn’t fuck things up for myself (side note: I told him about me blurting out to my co-workers about the pay rate thing). I was salty about him coming at me like that, but I understood. Needless to say, everything worked out. You guys, when I tell you, I literally cried in the shower because it felt so good… man!! Never should you cry overtaking a simple shower. Instantly I saw a difference in skin and mood. Gazing at my body in the mirror, I could see that I have been sun-kissed by Cali’s gorgeous sun. I’ll show pictures. Yes, I was fascinated by how the water’s forceful pellets cleaned my skin, I took pictures. Sue me!
I can’t wait to climb under the fluffy comforters and go to sleep. I need to calm my mind and rest my body for I put it through so much. Until next time…
Stay Positive. Stay Focused. Vibrate Higher.
