Just another day
Sunday. 2.7.16 11:10 am
I hung out with my friend yesterday and we went to look at a potential house he and his fiance are thinking of buying. I really didn't like the house. I felt they were interested in it for the wrong reasons and I'm glad he had another friend of his there who was more knowledgeable in the technical side of things. Things that I saw that looked weird, he pointed out as to why they looked weird and what would have to go in to fixing it. Obviously, it's up to my friends on whether they want to put all the work in to fixing up this house, but still. I think they can do better, even in their lower price range.

We didn't hang out for long; probably only a few hours. He is working grave shift tonight so he needed to adjust his sleep pattern as such. I came home yesterday and just relaxed. I thought about going out today during the Super Bowl, but I decided against it. Instead, I did what appears to be my normal Sunday morning routine: go to the gym, come home to shower, then put clothes in the wash. I really should go out this afternoon, but I think reading a book is a good alternative. I've certainly had it long enough and I want to be able to return it to its owner tomorrow.

So that's pretty much the plan for the remainder of the day. I'll be off and on the interwebs when I need a break from reading. It's a short book, only a couple hundred pages, so it shouldn't have taken me this long to complete it {I've had it for over a week.} Hence why I want to finish it today and bring it back to my friend tomorrow.

Welcome to Friday
Friday. 2.5.16 9:00 pm
It seems like I wasn't the only person who had a weird as shit Friday. I also felt better about the fact that I wasn't the only person on my floor to be affected by an IT outage that involved re-imaging a computer. I went the entire shift without being able to use my own computer; I went the entire first half of the shift without having access to a computer at all. I definitely wore the wrong shoes to be standing for hours in.

Tonight was a bad night for snacks. I will likely not be buying another package of chewy Chips Ahoy... The Oreo thins I can make last, for whatever reason. So I'll probably keep buying them for a while. Even if I eat 2 servings, I'm still consuming less than 300 calories. I didn't go to the gym this week either; it just wasn't my week for the heath conscious. I wanted to lose those 5lbs before the 24th of this month, but I've been steady at the same 155 for a while now. It hasn't gone up at all, but it hasn't gone down either. Now, I get that eating those damn cookies doesn't help me at all, but still.

I'll be skipping the gym tomorrow and opting for sleeping in. I'll be going on Sunday morning. I like getting up Sunday, going to the gym, coming home to shower and then put clothes in the wash. It just feels like a more productive day. I'll be getting up and going out early enough tomorrow anyway; in order to go to the gym and be home and showered before I need to leave for my friend's, sleeping in will not be an option. I can't sleep in too late on Sunday because it fucks up sleep for work the next day. So sleep tomorrow, gym Sunday, daily exercises continue as planned.

I joined Tinder. I didn't upload any pictures of myself, but I did sync my Instagram profile. If people really want to see, I have a few pictures of myself in there somewhere. I'm not on the app to actually find anyone. I was more or less curious. It doesn't feel like a dating site, probably because it's not. I'm still super skeptical of the app. I likely won't make plans to meet with anyone I "match" with any time soon. Mostly because I am busy the rest of this month. We'll see how this goes.

Alright, I'm gonna call it an early night. It's been a long week. Not quite as bad as last week, but still long enough that I have a headache and I'm sore from standing for several hours earlier this morning. Note to self, put extra pair of tennis shoes in car tomorrow...

Push and pull
Wednesday. 2.3.16 8:00 pm
I've reached the point where my mind and heart are kind of fighting with each other. One is saying that we're ready to start dating again; the other is saying that we need to still wait until we're 30. Whatever is gonna happen is gonna happen, regardless of whether I'm looking for it or not, but I'm not sure what I'm want to do. In the meantime, I'm still quite enjoying the fact that I'm single. Other than a couple weeks ago when I finally worked up the courage to speak to someone, and found out they had a girlfriend, I've not really been interested in anyone. It's kinda nice to be taking a break from that.

I've rescheduled the hanging out from a couple weekends ago to this coming weekend, now that I'm no longer sick. Not sure what we're gonna do, but I'm looking forward to seeing the pets, despite the spastic nature of the dog. That's what happens when you get a ridiculously energetic breed such as a mini Aussie. In this instance, I like the cats just a smidge more.

Sunday will just be another lazy day with laundry to do. I think I'll try to go to the gym on Saturday before hanging out so that I can just stay home on Sunday. Next weekend is a 3 day weekend and I have plans pretty much the whole weekend. I'll explain more about that sometime next week.

So as I'm writing this, it's a bit windy outside. There's a tree outside my window that has recently become tall enough to scratch at my window when it's as windy as it is now. It scared the living fuck out of me the first time it happened... I live on the 3rd floor. There's a fence around the entire building so there's really no way anyone would be able to easily get to my window without using a ladder... how the hell was there scratching? Damn tree. Hopefully the wind dies down before I go to bed so that it doesn't startle me awake.

Plateau
Sunday. 1.31.16 4:02 pm
I've reached my first plateau in the months that I've been working out and eating better. I haven't gained any weight, but I am no longer losing the weight. So I bought a couple different food items, stuff that I'll be better able to portion out, and will be starting a new 30 day challenge tomorrow. I get that there's only 29 days next month, but that's okay. There's 31 days for March, so I'm cool if it carries over a day. I still want to be under 150 lbs by the 24th; that's when the health screening is for work so it would be nice to be under. Even if it's .2 lbs under, that's still under.

I missed writing an entry on Friday because I went out right after work and I didn't get home until shortly after midnight. A couple friends and I went to see Star Wars again. We went to the Pacific Science Center IMAX theater this time, because duh. It was just as amazing the second time around. After the movie, we needed to find a bar so that we could numb up from the hard week. A few drinks in, and several snack items later, we agreed it was time to get home. It was really nice; we've agreed to do that at least once a month.

Yesterday I just kind of hung out around inside. I was feeling only slightly hungover and I'm thinking it was more the fried foods that I'd eaten instead of the alcohol. My stomach isn't used to that much greasy food anymore. The fitness center was closed most of yesterday for plumbing repairs so I didn't feel as guilty about sleeping in. I stayed in bed until 11 and then took a 2 hour nap around 3. I was even back in bed before midnight last night. As much fun as I have going out for drinks, I'm finding that it takes so much longer to recover. Signs of getting older, I suppose.

Today was the day for productivity. I still slept in, but not nearly as late as yesterday. I went to the gym this morning, came home, took a shower, threw my laundry in the wash, went grocery shopping while the clothes were in the dryer, came back home and put everything away. I really should go put gas in my car, but I think I'll wait until later in the week to do that. I still have over a quarter of a tank so if I only go to and from work, it'll last me through til the weekend. I won't wait that long, but still. I also need to go get a yoga mat so that I can start doing the exercises properly, without killing my hands, knees and feet on the carpet.

I really don't want to go to work tomorrow, but the bills don't pay themselves. Oh, speaking of bills, I did my taxes yesterday. Since I only worked the one job last year, I am getting a considerable amount more than last year. Sam's Club really fucked me over on that front. I'll be putting the money directly in to savings so that I can keep it for the plane tickets I'll need to purchase this year. The amount that I'm getting back should be able to cover both of them. We'll see if I can get lucky on the deals.

Here's hoping that this week isn't nearly as stressful as last week.

It does what it wants
Wednesday. 1.27.16 8:01 pm
My hair ... I mean, I kind of let it do what it wanted when it was long, but I just kind of go with it now that it's short. I try to make it look nice, by making it look messy. Does that make sense? Take this morning, for example. I ran a brush through it, then took part of the left side and flipped it over my part to the right side and just left it that way. To me, it looks a mess. To everyone else who saw me today, and actually said something, felt it looked cute. Who the hell knows. If it's dirty, I pull it back and contain it. When it's clean, I just let it do what it wants.

I also wore my glasses today. After having worn contacts for the last three days, my eyes were feeling it last night. I kind of wanted to wear contacts again today, but after the left one almost got stuck in my eye last night when I was trying to take it out, I figured it would probably be smart to let my eyes rest for a day. I like going back and forth between wearing them each for a few days and then switching. It kind of still allows me to look like a different person that people can't recognize right away.

My coworker who'd been out sick the last two days {is it really only Wednesday?} was back today. She still wasn't feeling it, but I'm glad she was back. My body still woke me up several times this morning, afraid I'd missed a text asking me to go in early, but it was nice being able to stay in bed until my normal time. Hopefully tomorrow I'll be able to sleep until my alarm goes off.

No set plans yet for this weekend. I have Friday plans, but that's about it. Depending on how much I drink Friday night will determine whether I go to the gym Saturday or Sunday morning. It's a payday weekend, but it's the rent check so I'm limited on what I can do. I also need to make sure that I start to save money for my mini trip in May. Perhaps, if the weather allows, I'll go out picture taking. Rain and cell phones don't mix well.

Interesting ...
Monday. 1.25.16 8:08 pm
When I was talking to a friend yesterday about how I felt like today would be interesting, I had no idea it would start at 5:30am.

For whatever reason, I was awake at that hour, which ended up being lucky. My coworker text me saying that she had been sick all weekend and wouldn't be able to make it in today, so it would probably be best that I go in to open. Since none of the managers come in until 7, and the first set of patients starts to check in at quarter after, that's not nearly enough time to find coverage. When I took the position, I told her that I'd be fine with it, since I live so close, but this is the first time I've had to go in at 7. It's only 45 minutes earlier than I normally get there, but I felt like I'd lost so much sleep. I even just reset my alarm to 6 instead of 6:15 and dozed for another 30 minutes before I had to get up, but that didn't seem to make a difference.

We did end up getting coverage about an hour in to what would be my normal shift, so around 8:30, 8:45, but still. It was kind of a weird day. We had several people show up thinking their appointment was that day, but it wasn't. One person was off by 3 months. And then they get pissed at us... like, dude. I just check you in. I had nothing to do with you setting up this appointment. Then the program that we use to check people in crashed a few times, which messed up two patients being checked in. Luckily the docs understood and were still able to see them, but still. One person got so pissed off, I thought he was just going to leave. Like, yes dude. I came in to work today just to make your life a living hell. Fuck off.

Today was the first day since I've gotten my hair chopped that I wore contacts to work; I wore them yesterday and after a couple days of wearing them, I kind of forget that I have them in. Until my left eye starts giving me issues ... I'll probably wear them again tomorrow. It throws people off because I usually don't wear contacts to work. Staring at the computer makes my eyes super tired quite easily so I usually just wear my glasses, but with this new position, there's a lot more looking away from the screen so I'm testing out wearing them more often. It's kind of funny that I can still confuse people despite the fact that it's been over a year since I quit the security job. I'd think that people wouldn't have trouble realizing it's me anymore. It was fun when I'd be my own disguise so it's nice to know that I still kind of have that.

My coworker told me she should be well enough to go in tomorrow, but I told her to text me again if she needed me to open. As much as I like the little bit of OT, I also very much like to sleep in. I'll probably take my contacts out here within the hour and call it a fairly early night. Fingers crossed tomorrow goes more smoothly than today.

I gotta admit, though, the end of the day was better than I expected. Being forward and open about things does pay off sometimes.
