Well my body has been further beaten apart but this time it is from my job. I had to unload a 40ft trailer with 1300 to 1500 rolls of fabric. They each must have weighed at least 50-60 pounds each. Not to mention we had to carry them several feet from inside the trailer to the pallets they were being sorted on. By the time my co-workers and I finished, we were all beaten to a pulp. By the end of the shift, I was almost unable to walk. I feel proud of myself though for finishing through it withou
All this work for $10.50, not worth it at all. This makes me appreciate getting an education and being able to be more selective with my career path.
Needless to say, I didn't need to work out yesterday and today I wasn't feeling any better. Especially my arms and shoulder were hurting quite a bit. I don't find the pain to be so debilitating anymore. In fact, the pain is making me feel more alive than ever, if that makes any sense. I guess I mean that it make me feel like I have actually done something with my life rather than sit around playing World of Warcraft and partying up with friends.
I've been living a humbler life since I have come home. I haven't gone to any bars at all and I haven't really drank alcohol. I've been active working and I come home and relax all night. I haven't seen the majority of my friends here but I know I will see the people that count in my life eventually. I'm way more focused on finding a job in Florida in order to get out of here earlier than expected. I might have found something but I am crossing my fingers that its real.
I don't know what else to say except that even though my body is broken my spirit is better than ever. I will continue to work out and hopefully put myself in a better situation!
