Exhaustion

It’s been an intense month, and it’s not finished just yet.

If you’re not aware because you have an actual life and what not, it’s been Brighton Festival, Fringe Festival and The Great Escape over here in our little town. Thankfully I’m not involved in all three, but just two of them.

Brighton Festival runs all month and working with the Dome I’m part of the technician team that runs about four venues, every night. It’s been nice to see all the shows and don’t even get me started on all the things I’ve learned, but damn we’ve been spread out so thin with staff so we have all been on 12-16h shifts all month.

The Great Escape is a weekend festival in the city and it is packed with so much music over so many venues (some including the venues I work at with the Dome). I helped out my uni with their stage one day and then I had actual work the rest of the days. On top of that I wanted to enjoy TGE as it is one of my favourite weekends of the year.

To say I am exhausted, constantly de-hydrated and that I haven’t been eating properly this whole month would be just about right. This past week my body has caught up with me. Had to go home early from work on Wednesday because I was feeling ill, went home early from my internship on Thursday because I was feeling ill, took my call time down from 14h to 4h yesterday and have the day off today because I just can not function. I’m so tired I just want sleep.

Don’t get me wrong, I love my job and my colleagues and I’m so happy that I have this situation and all the things I’m learning. However, I’m so tired and now and I just want to get on a flight and go to Sweden just to relax a little. Four more days of work and then I’m on that flight out and not coming back in two weeks.

Sorry about the rant and the complaining, just had to get it out somewhere and that’s why I have this little blog of mine! But I do love my job and my colleagues and festivals and my life and I really am happy with all of it, I’m just exhausted and naggy haha!

Catching Up On Sleep.

I’m still in bed.

It’s 11.55am and I am still in bed, or rather, back in bed. Last night I fell asleep at 10.30pm and slept all through the night until 7.45 when it was wakey-wakey time for everyone in the house. Did the morning run with C and when I got back home at 9 I got back in to bed.

I am so tired. I’ve been doing things non-stop since Friday afternoon, barely got any sleep that night and I’m going to be doing things all week… I actually had to reschedule a thing I was doing so I can get some amount of rest before I completely die! C is here every weekend until I go to Sweden on the 22nd which means no mornings where I can sleep as long as I want, and I will be doing a bunch of things every other day, because either C is here or I have plans or an event to go to…

Anyway, enough complaining! I am going to do a lot of fun things this month and C is a lovely kid. I can sleep when I’m dead.

Or right now haha! I’m going to take a nap before having lunch an a shower, got to be ready by 3pm to go get C..
