Kevin’s Weekly Journal 8/20-8/26/18
It’s been a crazy week for me, but there were plenty of pros to balance the cons. Just to preface this post, my week consisted of a wedding, a funeral, a family get-together, asking out a girl, work and my robotic arm malfunctioning. You ready?
So yeah, I actually went to a funeral and a wedding in the same day on Saturday. A longtime family friend from my home church lost his wife this week, and my family and I were able to attend the service. While sad of course, it was a nice celebration of her life and we were able to see and reconnect with many old friends. My parents and I then went straight from there to my friend Lindsey’s wedding. She and I grew up together in church and went to the same college, and it was a nice wedding, albeit a pretty hot outdoor one. I prefer indoor weddings haha.
Most of the week though I’ve had to work around problems with my robotic arm. There’s some kind of internal malfunction going on with it, and we’re having to send it back to the company’s headquarters for repairs. They’ll also be sending me a loaner while they fix mine. It’s annoying, but the company is great to work with and they’ll get it fixed. It’s just that because I’m so dependent on mine, a few days without it makes daily life a bit of a hassle. Fortunately though my loaner is supposed to come tomorrow. I’m also very blessed to have family and friends who are more than willing to help with things like feeding and drinking when my JACO arm is out of commission.
And yes, as I mentioned in another post I did ask out a girl the other day. This person is taking a break from dating right now, but said she’d love to hang out sometime. I said in that post that it’s important just to have confidence in this area.
So yeah, it was a busy week. Work’s still going well, though I’m trying to be more intentional about setting aside time for rest and relaxation. I have a tendency to overdo things sometimes, and I need to be away from work at designated times so that I have enough energy for the rest of the week.
What did you all do this week? I hope you have a great week ahead, and please let me and the other moderators know if there are any particular topics you’d like to discuss here in the forums.
