I’ve decided to skip the history lesson of copying old journal entries in here and just start from today. So, here we go…
I’ve been fighting a cold since Monday, drinking Gypsy Cold Care Tea non-stop for three days. Seems to be working. Usually, if I catch a cold, it lasts one to two weeks. However, with this tea (I drink it all day long until every last bag of tea is gone), the duration and severity of my cold is dramatically cut in half. I’ve been relying on this magic elixir for a couple of years now and have not been disappointed. I’ve also gotten good results from Yogi Teas Cold Season Tea, but it’s harder to find.
Fortunately, I’ve had a couple of days off to stay in bed and try to recover. It’s Friday now and I’m much better — only a few sniffles. And that’s a good thing, because tonight is supposed to be a busy night at work. Not quite as busy as tomorrow will be, it being New Year’s Eve, but still far too busy to be sick. On top of that, there are some girls who promised to come in and see me this weekend, and I want to make sure I’m sharp. 😉
If you’re wondering what kind of job I have where I have to work nights and get to hang out with pretty women… it’s not quite as exciting as you might think. I manage a restaurant. (See what I mean.) It doesn’t pay much, and the hours suck (I have no social life to speak of) but it’s all I have at the moment. And, the perks are nice. I’ve met more women and business connections through this job in 6 months than I have working other jobs over the past two years. Plus, it allows me the flexibility to work on my art. I spend my days off with portrait shoots and other kinds of photography and I nurture my soul by creating artwork out of my images. Maybe I’ll share some on here some day.
Here’s an interesting side note…
Since I’ve had this cold, I’ve been having some strange dreams. Mostly involving ex-girlfriends (and I almost NEVER dream about them!) I’m not on any medication, and there are no hallucinogenic properties to this tea (that I’m aware of), but the dreams are vivid and memorable. Not like those dreams where you wake up and can’t remember the details… no, I remember almost every detail of these dreams. If I’m up for it tonight, I might describe one of them when I get home from work.
Now, I have to cut this short. I have a few errands to run before I head to work. I’ll let you know how the night goes. 😉
