Sick Day

It's been so long since I last got sick, I don't even remember when it was.

Actually I just have colds, cough and body aches. Thank God I don't have fever. If I did, I wouldn't have been able to call in sick at work. 'Coz when I get the flu (the whole thing: colds, cough, fever, body aches), I can't even raise my hand without help. It's a real torture when I get sick.

Anyway, it's a good thing that I got sick. It gave me a really good reason to rest. No work-related stress (sick of work), no boy-related stress (except in fiction), no grade-schooler-related stress (my niece and nephew are in school), no overplayed-Korean-drama-related stress (I love the plots, etc, but my sister watches them all the time that I'm about to puke!). I'm all alone in the house, baby! Well, at least until my niece and nephew come home from school. Anyway, I can spend a lot more time looking for a new job. I can also focus on my favourite hobby - sleep! Best of all, I could write as much as I want.

It has a few disadvantages, though. I missed work, which would translate to not getting my full 40 hours (we don't have sick leave at work; sucks, eh?) for my next pay cheque (not the one that I'm getting tomorrow). Even a measly $72 would help paying off my student loan and other bills. Also, I wouldn't be able to see a couple of guys that make me smile. Worst of all, I'd have to do the chores that my sister and her family left behind. SUCKS!

But still. I got to rest. And I get to come to work tomorrow and pick up my pay cheque. Haha.
