Back to reality, and reality is the same.

I survived day 1 back at the office. I treated myself to a skinny vanilla latte at Sbux after my insomnia (my late night tweet here). I've learned a few things about being sick and MIA for an extended period of time, and they are as follows:
  1. Nothing changes- Walking from the parking lot (see #3) to my office, it was ALL THE SAME. Except less snow and more people (convention going on nearby).
  2. Office shit, politics, whatever exists even when you are not there- This actually made me feel good because I guess I am not the only one spreading the misery, as I once thought! Even with my absence, my two coworkers still hate their jobs and continued in their misery whilst I was in bed. Upon my return, I am right back gossiping and whining with these two. That's what we do, GWD (gossip, whine, Drink), our version of GTL.
  3. When you are sick and have a fever for 10 days and normally commute to work via the bus, mom fears a relapse and bus strangers' germ exposure to your diminished immune system and offers to pay for parking for a few weeks- Thanks mom :)
  4. Choose the day you come back to work carefully- Thank goodness I chose to come back on a Thursday because that means....
tomorrow's Friday!

  3. This is exactly how what I thought about when I went back to work after only having two days off. Nothing ever changes, unfortunately. But you were way smarter than I was going back to work on a Thursday, I went back on a Wednesday which made for much too long of a week.
    Glad you're feeling better though lil' lady <3

  12. Ah very good. Glad to hear you're feeling better and sorry to hear its back to work! It is nice to know that office drama exists even when we're not around (although I wish it didn't exist at all).
