As of today, I'm expected to be here until December 31, 2013. Louis is going to be here until May 15, 2013.
I'll stay a few extra weeks packing, maybe take a trip to Isalo Park or Morondava, and then I'll fly back to Canada. For the next two weeks, I'll sleep.
And after that, I'll apply for a job at Starbucks or Café Depot and work there three days a week. That will get me out of the house so I don't go crazy, give me ample of free time to go to spin classes (oh yeah, and most importantly, find a job!) and maybe by the time Louis gets to Canada for good, we'll be well underway to having secured employment.
I DO NOT want to trivialize the importance of a Starbucks or Café Depot as they have brought me a lot of happiness, ESPECIALLY in my post-Canada life. The amount of time that I spend thinking of going for a drive-thru coffee....well, it's not sane. But I think working there would use a different part of my brain. A part that I don't use very often or very well (I spill everything, I trip all the time, and my people skills aren't always fantastic). But it would be different type of work environment that I would really enjoy.
Never thought I'd wish for a barista job. Actually, I don't necessarily want the barista job, I'd kinda like the job that pours the coffee and puts the treats onto plates. (I'd also need to find a coffee shop near our gym!!! I'm down 9lbs and I want to the scale moving in that direction!!!! :D)
In other news, it seems the closer it gets to my leave date, the more emotional I become. I'm having more trouble concentrating at work....and more moments of trying not to cry. I'm tired. I'm homesick. I'm burnt out. Not every rotation is like this, and all-in-all, I had a fantastic rotation. I made so much progress in so many aspects of my life and work.
