So today was a warn beautiful day outside. I made my yummy nanner date smoothie, and brought my 811 book outside on my lawn to sit and read while catching the warm sunny rays. Sadly, i got called in to work tonight, saturday nights are my "on call" night where if im needed, i have to come in. This was my first saturday night working there, and its known as the craziest. I wasnt nervous, until i got seated 4 tables at once. I was doing fine, a little stressed out, but then someone broke a huge glass plate onto my right ring finger and the dishwashing station, and it left a chunk of skin hanging and then it started to bleed. I freaked out a little, i didnt have time to have a bloody finger, i needed to take care of my tables! Of course my eyes started welling up with tears. I wasnt upset from getting cut, i was upset because it wouldnt stop bleeding and i needed to go go go! Then one of my managers came in and the tears i were trying to hold back came out. I remember saying something like "I need a napkin! Im really stressed i got 4 tables at once! blah!" lol i was in my choke-crying state. Its like a hyperventilating cry that i only get if im wicked stressed over something and overwhelmed. Its like i choke/gasp for air because im trying to relax but i cant. My manager brought me up to the managers room and was so so sweet, telling me that every thing is ok, BREATHE, and she used an alcohol wipe to make sure no germs got into the cut, and then applied a fresh band aid. I tried applying a bandaid in a rush in the kitchen right after it happened but it stuck all wrong. She told me to sit until i calmed down a little. Within 5 mins of the whole ordeal, and come deep breathing, i was fine and went right back out. Too much stressful things were happening at once, and i wasnt breathing haha. Luckily my manager said that i was impressing her on my first saturday night, and then the other manager said i was doing great (except for one mistake i made). That made me feel really good. Im pretty embarassed about crying though, thats what happens when you i get overwhelmed, shmeh -_-
**Comments of the day**
I had some fantastic comments today regarding how i eat, majority were funny. "Would u like some whipped cream on your mangosss?". "I know you dont eat!!" (regarding that i always have smoothies, and i guess she doesnt know how much i pack in those babies :) ). "Arent u always hungry?" "Dont you get hungry from eating like, nothing?" "Thats the new weird girls stuff." (that one was a funny joke, because she knew i was standing right near them at the computer, i turned around and she let out her jolly laugh). "Maybe we should have some of your mangos" (comment my manager made after how well i did tonight :) ). "Is there anything else in there besides mangos?" "Wow, thats a lot more strict than regular vegan". "I really did try! i had bananas mangos and dates for 2 days!"
My eating was all thrown off today. I didnt get to eat my 2nd meal of the day until 11 tonight. I was too busy crazy running around to even take a break to have a gulp of smoothie. Right before i got sat 4 tables at once i was able to have a few gulps. Once i got in my car i sat there for about minutes just drinking my yummy mangos. I finished when i got home, with 2 deglet and 2 medjool dates. I had a half an avocado to help me come down from my mangos and dates because by midnight when i had finished my 2nd meal, i was all energized, and i needed to go to bed! i definitely feel nice and sleepy and ready for bed. I was thinking about it earlier and i want to get a pedometer for work. I wish i had one for tonight! I was literally running around the entire restaurant from 430-1030ish. I never got tired though, other ppl looked so dead after the night, i knew i wouldve felt a little more energized even if i was able to drink my mangos :).
Tomorrow is another night of work. Monday i have the entire day off!! Yay for long weekends/Holidays! Im so ready for my cozy bed.
