I spent the whole afternoon yesterday to relax to be ready and rested for today’s interview. I finished watching Lost Daughters (didn’t like it much), started a light romance, and planned to go bed early. 8pm got a text from mom of Lizzy’s learning pod classmate, the girl tested positive. WTF!!!! This text came few hours after the mom told me that her daughter said loved Lizzy (first person she ever said outside of her family). i was so proud of Lizzy to building new friendship so quickly, and then this. 😦
Not surprisingly, I woke up 2am and struggled to sleep well and got up 4:30am. I did like 30 min meditation (double than usual) and gentle yoga for 30 min to mentally prepare for what’s coming to me for the day.
I got to the office 6:30am wearing my lucky outfit. I have this shirt since 2011 and wore it for all important meetings. I was bumped up to get it done.
The interview #1 went well. 40 min and I went home. Once home, I meditated again trying to slowdown my HR.
Implication of getting COVID? I don’t know where to start when I first thought about it. When I meditated I kept telling myself that I am grateful for what we have, and that everything will be fine. Focus on facts and not what ifs.
Got some antigen tests, will test Lizzy and myself tomorrow, 2 days after exposure, and observe for symptoms.
I also had to tell myself that don’t pick up minor physical sensations as the start of symptoms. Remember mind induced symptoms? I’ve came a long way to overcome it and determined to not let it to affect me again.
Talking to more colleagues and friends, they are either quarantining because of positive covid or because of direct exposure or waiting for test results. daily positive rate has reached 47% yesterday and a third of our office staff have covid. Sigh… it’s already endemic.
Okay… will try to rest some as my second interview will be at 8pm, my usual bedtime. Wish me luck to be awake by then.
