Flick of the switch
3rd June 2012
I haven’t been feeling well this week. I’ve been suffering with an aching pain under my arms, mainly on the left side. At times I felt the aching further down my arm and all the way across my chest. It was a horrible sensation. I didn’t feel ill, I just ached.
But I think it’s getting better now. I had very little pain yesterday and only a little pain this morning. I have a doctors appointment on Wednesday so I can find out what might have been causing the problem. I did a bit of research myself and it may be because I have a virus but my body is trying to attack it. My lymph nodes would be swollen and that would cause under arm pain. It may have also been due to anxiety. I am having a stressful time at the moment.
I took Friday off because I was feeling pretty rubbish with the pain and I thought that a good rest might be the answer. I really think it helped. I also had Thursday off because my ICT teacher gave me the day off. The Olympic torch was coming through the town where my college is, which meant all the roads were blocked off. They had to close the college for the morning and there was no way I was traveling for 40 minutes to get to college for an hour of lesson. It was only a revision lesson anyway.
Every year in my town they have a music festival. It started in the beer garden of a small pub but since it has increased in popularity and they have had to move it elsewhere. They have moved it to a big piece of open space by the swimming pool in town. It started yesterday and finishes on Monday. It’s not a big festival, like Glastonbury, but for our little town it’s something. You can probably tell not a lot goes on here.
Tyrone and I went down to have a look at the festival yesterday. They had a few small, local groups on to start with and then around 9pm there was a Queen tribute act. Everyone loves Queen so it was a lot of fun to see everyone dancing. It rained towards the end and we all got soaked, but as it got darker it was really fun to dance in the rain. We’ve got tickets for tomorrow too so if it doesn’t rain too much then we will go to the festival again.
Oh, and I applied for a job today. I went on the Job Centre website again (as I do pretty much everyday) and I managed to find a waitress job at a small restaurant. It’s part of an organic farm and it’s only a 20 minute walk from where I live. I had to send a CV, which was a slight problem considering I didn’t have one. I managed to find a template on the internet and my mum helped me to fill it in. I had more to write than I first thought. I’m not sure if I will hear a response, but at least I had a good try.
P.S. I finally added a link to my tumblr in my sidebar. Feel free to follow, I’ll follow you back.
