Goodbye, March! 👋 I’m sad to see it go because it ended on a high note for me (it was quite a busy month actually, hence why this post is a little late), but it also had some bumps along the way that I’ll fill you in on during this post. I have a whopping FIVE DAY WEEKEND and I have no idea what I’m going to dow with myself 😰 so *hopefully* I’m able to think of some things to create!
It’s funny giving last month’s review post a quick read and seeing that we went into lockdown again, and this month – in my state – we get rid of pretty much all restrictions, even masks (except on public transport)! I have to wear make-up to work again which is annoying, but I am SO glad that my chin is going to finally be given the chance to breathe and this random acne that I’ve never had in my LIFE can go away 🙌🎉
Apparently I’m not the only one who has suffered from acne caused by mask-wearing – it’s even been dubbed “maskne”, Google it! – but that still doesn’t make me feel any better, because I have never had an acne problem, except for the few times I’ve accidentally slept in my make-up, so this has been a HUGE self esteem issue for me. Now, of course, the masks are off and you can see it, but hopefully it will go away soon!
This month’s tidbits include a quite a few medical things (including another 3am hospital visit!), a rollercoaster of a job interview, and lots of hanging out with friends 👭 but enough of the previews, keep reading for the actual details! 👇
TIDBITS FROM THE MONTH:
♡ Whilst my seizure tally was only 7, my overall seizure news this month is bad. I had an appointment with my neurologist and he said that the latest medication that I’ve been on for the past few months (which is the third one I’m on, I’m staying on the other two because they’re helping, but not 100%) only seems to be worsening my seizures. Not only that, but that we are running out of medications to put me on, so.. there may not be any cure for my seizures. I might have to live with them forever. Yay.
♡ In other medical news, I woke up with a blinding pain in my stomach/abdominal area at 3am. Daniel took me to the hospital. They asked me some questions, after an hour or two of waiting in the waiting room, they sent me home without any tests. I still have no idea what happened. But, because I was awake at such a strange time, I did have two seizures. 😕 If I didn’t have that horrible pain, my monthly tally might have been two less.
♡ I got a call back for a full time job at an optometrist. The first interview was over the phone and it went SO well; she LOVED me. She actually told me to throw out my current uniform! I got a second interview in-store which was with three different people and it was clear straight away that it wasn’t going and they didn’t like me, and I just did not know why. I got an email saying I didn’t get the job, but no reason saying why, just that they “wish me well”. I was so confused and upset. I never get any interviews, and after that first one went so well, I was very excited, so that was a huge let down.
♡ My best friend and I went out to the Pancake Parlour TWICE this month because she’s obsessed with the place (she went at least two other times that month with other people). I got a spider – which is a soft drink with ice cream – both times because they are delicious 😋 I also tried their cinnamon apple pancakes which were nice, but I don’t anything beats maple or golden syrup.
♡ Last weekend I went over to a friend’s house with some other friends to have lunch together whilst they also tried to make homemade cocktails, before we all met up with some other people at a bar near the city to go dancing. Then, the next day, Daniel and I drove an hour to go to a birthday lunch for a friend of mine from my first high school, so it was quite a busy weekend!Read More »
