Letter to September 2019
Dear September, we started our time
together with a long vacation that took us to New York for a week. There I
ignored all the touristy to-do list things and spend most of my time walking.
Enjoying the High Line, the Hudson River Park, and Central Park. Aside from walking I also read a lot, as that was the plan. A fun surprise was meeting up with booktube friends who happened to be in town at the same time. It was just wonderful hanging out and talking face to face. No matter how much I worry about things
being awkward beforehand they never are. And I’m still grateful they reached out to me.
Coming back I had another week off, where I had
planned to do so many things. Yeah, that never happened, because I was hit with
the worst readjustment issues ever. I struggled getting back into my timeline,
being tortured by jetlag, tired, and constant lack of energy. When it was time
to go back to work I could feel my whole body rebel and express its resentment of
the situation and the job. It was a challenge to get over and I can’t say I’ve completely left it behind. On vacation I got to live according to my
own rhythm again and things weren’t so hard for me.
But I don’t have an alternative to the current situation, so I’ll just have to
keep trying and find ways to be more myself with that job. It’s an ongoing
process, I know, but that’s for October to deal with. Cheers, Wiebke
