Mercury is in retrograde
Thursday. 1.21.16 7:57 pm
Every time something has been out of place, for the last week or so, our RN keeps saying that Mercury is in retrograde. I know that it has to do with astrology, but I have no idea what that means. Considering she only says it when shit hits the fan, I'm gonna make the assumption that that's what that means.
Today, today was one of those days. Shit hit the fan before it was even 9. It's not fun when we have to make schedule changes. It's even less so when we have to make same day changes and then have to call the patients and tell them that they can't come in today, despite the fact that they'd been waiting for two months, and because of the way the schedules work, they now have to wait another two months. I mean, there's some finagling that we can do, but when you're looking at the volume of people that we've had to reschedule just this week, there's only so much we can do before it just isn't possible to work around restrictions anymore.
My brain hurt by lunch and I was just done by the end of the day. I fully plan on crashing for the night when I'm done typing this up, even though it's barely 8.
No plans for this weekend and I'm happy about it. Depending on the weather, I may go exploring and take some pictures. Or I might just stay in the whole weekend and not change out of pajamas. We'll see what the weather does and how I feel. I'm just glad that tomorrow is Friday. Hopefully it ends better than the entire rest of this week went.

I've tried a few times to come up with a better title and it just isn't happening. The way that I'm being treated by a person I thought was a friend is unacceptable, but that's how he feels so I just have to move on. I suppose this is one of those situations where the person silently slips in to the shadows and pretends that nothing ever happened, so as to avoid confrontation. It's not like we've been friends for 2 years or anything. Let's just say it's going to take me a while to not be bitter about how it was handled.
The Lord of the Rings marathon day yesterday turned in to a semi-marathon. We ended up meeting later than we originally planned so we were only able to get through two of the movies. I borrowed the 3rd one so as soon as I'm done typing this out, I'll be putting it on. And then as soon as it's over, I'll likely be crashing.
Because the stuff that went down with the aforementioned individual happened only last night, I was pretty hurt by it and thus didn't sleep well. I kept waking up and having trouble falling back asleep. I know that I've been saved by this, but it still hurts. As long as some shit doesn't go down tonight as well, I'll sleep much better.
I should probably get the movie in now, however, so that I can still get to bed at a somewhat reasonable hour.

Tomorrow is the memorial for the coworker who died this past Sunday. There's going to be a lot, a lot, of people there. I'm not sure the family realizes just how much of an impact this guy had on the staff where I work.
I have some errands to run in the morning before I head over to West Seattle, but then I have my hair appointment Downtown in the afternoon so it'll be a pretty packed day. I was fully planning on wearing contacts to my appointment, this way I could watch the hair cutting process for the first time ever, but a friend brought up a good point about my face shape being different when I wear glasses so the stylist needs to know that I wear them intermittently. Instead of wearing contacts and bringing my glasses with me, I'm just gonna wear the glasses. Fuck it. I'm not the biggest fan of short hair so I might as well be in a blur until the final product. It'll take me a solid month to get used to it, and then I'll be fine because I know how quickly it grows. In the meantime, it's kind of bittersweet that this is the final night I'll have long hair.
No plans for Sunday, except to do laundry. I might even put laundry off until Monday morning and make Sunday a lazy day. I mean, I'll be hanging out doing nothing but watch movies on Monday, but I'll be around people so I can't be the same kind of lazy. We'll see how I feel after the busy, emotionally charged, day tomorrow.
I've also decided that I'm not going to be posting a picture of myself on Facebook once I've gotten my hair cut. I'll post a picture of how much gets donated, but not the final product. Of course, there will be pictures, but I don't feel like posting the pictures. If people wanna see, I can text them, or they can just wait to see it in person. It's not something I'm terribly excited about so I'm not really up to advertising it. You know, because talking about it all week in each blog doesn't count as advertising ...
Anwyho, that's it for now. Until next time. . .

The days have been gradually going back to normal, patient-wise so it's allowed other work to be caught up on. It's a never ending, though, which is fine. My biggest fear with this new position was that I'd be bored; definitely not the case.
After work I came home, changed, and went back to the gym. I needed to make up for not being able to go this weekend and I actually got my best time today. I'll have to make sure I go again this coming weekend. Whether I go before or after I get my hair chopped off is a different story.
The plans for this weekend have been altered slightly. It won't be an overnight thing and the marathon will be split in to two sessions due to sudden plans that came up that he has to deal with. I suppose I'm okay with it. I'll get to see the movies either way; just means that I won't be doing it all in one crazy-long sitting. It'll probably be better this way anyway. Either way, I'm just glad I don't have work on Monday.
I wore contacts to work for the first time in months and the people I work with now have never seen me in contacts before so it was funny seeing their reactions. Apparently I look quite different without my glasses on. I guess I'm used to seeing my face either way, so it doesn't look a whole lot different to me. Since today seemed to go okay with wearing them, I'll probably wear them again tomorrow. Then Friday I'll give my eyes a day to rest before wearing them again on Saturday. This will be the first time I'll be getting my hair cut where I'll actually be able to see what's happening so I'm kind of nervous and excited.

I woke up to the news of David Bowie's death all over Facebook. Now, that doesn't affect me terribly, but I know several people who idolized him so it made me feel for them.
About 10 minutes after I get to work, our manager comes up to the floor to let us know that a beloved coworker passed away yesterday. That was just a huge shock. We didn't even know how to react. It was so hard to keep from crying; we were still at work and there were still patients whom we couldn't ignore. It was easier to just swallow it and pretend like it was just like any other day than to explain to everyone why we were crying.
There was a cloud of shock hovering the campus today because of this. Most people knew by 9. He was one of those people that everyone knew, even if you didn't work with him. He'd been there for years and he was always so cheery. What makes it surreal is that he was just there on Friday and now he'll never be back. Everything was still at his desk, like nothing had changed. I purposely avoided that part of the building because I feel like I wouldn't have been able to quash back the tears. It's going to be a long week. The first time I go back to that office is going to be very strange.
In unrelated news, I'm feeling much better. My nose wasn't nearly as fussy today as it had been all weekend. I have been able to breathe through it for most of the day and only had to resort to blowing it a handful of times. I'll be getting back in to exercising tomorrow. I'll give myself one more day to rest so that I don't overdo it too soon, despite feeling better. Tomorrow I should be good.
I was planning on going out of town this weekend, before my movie marathon on Sunday, but I've changed the plans by making a long overdue appointment on Saturday. It's been 2 1/2 years since I last had my hair cut so it's more than past time to chop it off again. I'll be donating it for the 3rd time since October 2011. I'll be giving about 15-17 inches again. I think it was about 18 inches the first time, 13 inches the second and now this time. Not bad for October 2011 to now. This will be the last time for a while that I'll donate it, however, because I want to maintain it at a reasonable length. At the rate it grows, it'll be the length I want it to be by the end of the year.
Anywho, I think that's all I have for now. I've typed out a sentence and deleted it several times already so yeah, it's time to stop.
Until next time. . .
