Why I Needed A Massage and Why It Didn’t Work

 have been super stressed!!! My neck felt like someone had tied knots in it. My new job is a daily pressure to manage an ever growing caseload of files while meeting participation numbers that have variables outside of my control. I have yet to get my house in order. I am slowly making progress on some bills but for every triumph a new challenge awaits. Through it all, I am still trying to grow this blog and finish my book.

So I get a coupon for a massage, facial, and hand treatment for $75. Sure $75 in like $1,000 when you are counting every bill but I NEED to relax. I tried meditation and it worked like twice after that I could not block out all of the noise.The knots kept tightening.


The masseuse begins my session. This woman (black like me) talks like for half of my session. Doesn't she understand that eyes closed means mouth closed. Plus she kept pressing too hard on my right side after I told her it hurt. All day yesterday and this morning my right side of my back has been KILLING me.

I am just so frustrated, I don't know what to do.

I am steady appyling for jobs but no calls yet. I keep trying. 

On a lighter note, I did manage to go out to a dinner party my apartment management company held. I met a girl from Mexico interning here for a while. We decide to see Dallas together. For all the time I have been here, I have never really seen the sites. Next Sunday we got some $15 tickets to the Texas Ballet. My friend is stationed here with her job maybe we can hangout a few times as well. Perhaps going out will relieve my stress because work is . . . ARGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am grateful for my job. I am grateful for my job. I am gratefull for my job.

What do you wear to a ballet?
