You guys probably have noticed that I haven’t been posting much this summer. Well, I have my reasons.
I was originally planning this summer to be a summer of rest, reading, and gaming. I’ve been working with kids for the past year and two summers and quite frankly, I desperately needed the rest. However, my parents made me apply for this summer job lottery, a lottery I thought I would never be chosen for since what are the chances I’ll be chosen for the 3rd summer in a row, especially since they cut back a huge amount of the number of jobs available?
As luck would have it, I was chosen to work; I had to work every single weekday. There went my summer of sleeping, reading, and gaming. Even though I get out semi-early from work everyday, I was too tired to do any reading or reviewing after getting home. All I wanted to do was sleep or play games to relieve all the stress.
Sometimes, I was so tired from work that I just had to sleep all day after I’m done with work for the day. About three weeks ago, I had this massive, massive headache. It hurt to blink, it hurt to move my jaw to eat, it hurt to think, it hurt to talk, it simply hurt. Even after twelve hours of rest, everything still hurt. I never ever want that headache again.
My relatives and their friends also came over from Asia and stayed over. Some of them were so inconsiderate and woke everybody up at 5AM in the morning just because they needed to be awake that time to go somewhere. Of course, I got my revenge by waking them up early when they were sleeping in. But yes, I was busy with showing them around NYC and helping them with other personal things that they needed to do. If I had some free time to myself to read or review, it was most likely spent helping them.
I also had the worse mosquito bites in the history of my life. From what I can tell, a mosquito bit me two times in the bathroom, each bite less than a centimeter apart from one another. Since I am also allergic to mosquito bites, the two mosquito bites somehow combined to one (if that even makes sense, but I saw it happen) and developed to be bigger than the size of a handball. The scary part is, the mosquito bites were as round as a handball too. The bites got so bad (the bite was darker than a bruise – it turned purple with a mix of brown in it) that I had to see the doctor for it and after a disgusted look, she gave me some kind of shot. I had to cover the mosquito bites for more than a week because believe me, it will scare the kids at my job and probably give them nightmares. The mosquito bite is A LOT better now, but it’s still there and slowly disappearing.
To make matters even worse, my Paypal account was hacked during the summer. Thank goodness Paypal noticed the first charge the hacker made as suspicious activity and blocked my account from making any more charges after the first one. I filed a case and won, but believe me, I was panicking like crazy when it happened because who knew this could ever happen? The Internet is a SCARY place.
So yeah, that was my crazy summer. Hopefully life will get back to normal now since work is over and I have more time to do the things I want. I will definitely be posting regularly like before on September.
So how was your summer guys? Hopefully it was better than mines!
