Oops, I did it again
Saturday. 12.19.15 11:22 am
I definitely intended on writing up an entry yesterday and the day before, but due to last minute plans, I was not able to keep up on the challenge.

Thursday morning, a friend of mine text me asking if I wanted to go see Star Wars that evening with him and another friend. Of course I said yes! You don't say no to an offer like that. He then told me that I should bring a friend since there was, in fact, two extra tickets. I invited the first person I could think of who would appreciate it the most, who hadn't already bought tickets, but he declined due to ongoing ailments. A legit reason to say no to such an offer. The second friend I asked was more than willing to go. She and I agreed that our night suddenly got infinitely better. So much so that I suddenly didn't care as much about all the work I still had to deal with.

The movie, in short, was amazing. Originally I wasn't planning on seeing it until next year, once the crowds died down, but I'm so glad that I got to see it opening night. We got let in to the theatre an hour before the start of the movie. It was still rolling the final credits from the movie that had just ended. The group of people that I ended up being a part of took up the entire first row. Not the front row, but the first row up the stairs. I thought it would just be the 4 of us, but it ended up being about 13 people total. I knew almost everyone that was there, and oddly all from one department at work.

One of the guys there invited me out for drinks after the movie so I said sure, why not. The next day was Friday so I would be able to come home and crash without worrying about it messing up my sleep for work. After the movie, however, he was nowhere to be seen. So I asked one of the people I knew had his number, to give him mine and let him know I was sorry for having missed him. I dropped my friend off at another friend's house, where her car was, and as I was leaving, got a phone call from the guy. I told him I didn't know where the place was we were going and when he told me, I went back to meet him. I only had one drink since I had to drive, but it was nice actually getting to hang out with him outside of work.

Because of the spontaneous meet up, I didn't get home until around 1 and finally fell asleep a little after 2. My alarm was set for 6:15. So yesterday was a bit of a long day. Around lunchtime, my head started pounding. I took some ibuprofen and a few hours later, my head started pounding again. About an hour before end of shift, I suddenly because exhausted so the plan was to come home and crash. Which is exactly what ended up happening. I was asleep before 6 last night. I slept until around 10, then was back asleep shortly after 11. I clearly needed the sleep.

Today I have lunch/dinner plans and then tomorrow I'm going to get a mani/pedi with the friend I invited to the movies. So the remainder of this weekend will be fairly busy. I also have to go to the mall at some point and get new earrings; my ears are still not healing at a rate I want them to so I need something in there that I can turn with ease. I also need to buy gifts for my family for Christmas. I have an idea as to what to get everyone, but I need to make sure I stay in budget. I finally am caught up on all my bills and things that I owed money to from my vacation, but I'd like to still have some extra. We'll see how the rest of this weekend goes.

Until {maybe} tomorrow. . .

Temporary
Wednesday. 12.16.15 9:27 pm
I've decided that this every day thing will just be this month. It's only halfway through the month and I already kind of don't want to write every day. Since I already challenged myself to do so {and already missed a day} I figured the least that could happen is that I finish out the month.

Nothing terribly exciting is happening at the current moment. My hair is really starting to get on my nerves so I'll be getting it chopped off in about a month. I've had to keep it down all this week, which is slightly more irritating than I realized. I may just throw it up on Friday and if one of the managers says anything to me, then so be it. I'll just be getting new plugs on Friday after work anyway.

This weekend won't nearly be as packed with excitement as I'd previously thought, which is perfectly fine with me. That actually gives me enough time to type up a blog each day. And watch some videos that I'm falling ridiculously behind on.

Until tomorrow. . .

Additional brain melting
Tuesday. 12.15.15 9:45 pm
Since we hadn't gotten the full build completed on Saturday, the three of us agreed to work overtime this week in order to get it finished. The main templater stayed over last night to work on all of April and half of May. The three of us stayed over tonight so that we could finish the other half of May and all of June. We got about 3 hours of OT for today. It was much simpler than the build we did on Saturday because all the complicated changes had occurred during the December and January builds so that was a nice thing to avoid.

However, it's still brain melting.

I just tried to put the squishies in and my ear started bleeding again, so that was fun. I will not be trying that again until Sunday. The holes have taken so I can move the earrings around easier and sleep on them more comfortably, but I can't put the silicone in without issue so I'm going to give it the rest of this week and the weekend to let them fully heal before I try punishing them again. Which is fine; just means I still have to be careful when the managers are around. It's really no more difficult to hide those than it is to make sure no one sees that I have a tongue bar.

Anywho, tomorrow is Wednesday; I'm hoping it's a slower day than today. Being short staffed didn't help the fact that today was a busier than normal day. Fingers crossed.

Until then. . .

Healing
Monday. 12.14.15 10:26 pm
I'm gonna give it one more day for my ears to heal before I try to put the squishies in again. I tried yesterday, but I think that's why one of my ears started bleeding... so that was fun. I was careful today whenever a manager would come around to make sure my hair was covering my ears. I need to clean them as soon as I'm done typing this up.

It's kinda crazy that next Friday is Christmas. It's close, but still feels pretty far away. I'm excited to spend the time with my friend and her family. I'm actually mostly excited about the fact that it's a 3 day weekend. I have absolutely no plans for New Year's Eve, something I'm also quite excited about. I think this year, I'd rather just stay home and watch the live stream in the comfort of my pajamas.

There might be the chance at some overtime this week so that we can finish the build. We're all kind of waiting on the manager's approval for it; I've already told her I'm okay with any day except Friday. So at this point I'd only be looking at a few hours of OT. Hey, better than none and it would be on the first check of the New Year, so that'll be nice. We'll see what happens.

Until tomorrow. . .

Noon thirty
Sunday. 12.13.15 12:36 pm
I have no idea why, but it just makes so much more sense to say noon thirty instead of 12:30. Perhaps it's a distinguishing thing? I dunno. Either way, it's a fun way to say it.

My ears are far less sore today than they were yesterday. I still think I'm gonna try to keep these in for one more day before I put in the squishies. I'll have to make sure my hair stays down if any of the managers are around. Earrings this size aren't exactly allowed in my current position. But one more day for the holes to heal should be enough.

Today is a mostly lazy day. I went to the gym this morning and ran my usual distance. One of these days I'll be able to get up to 3 miles in 35 minutes; perhaps once I lose 10 more pounds. I'm still hovering around the same weight I was a month ago, but I've not exactly been super careful with what I've been eating. I need to jump back on the healthy train. Being broke this week does help keep me from buying too much crap.

It's been quite windy this weekend; yesterday was much more wind and rain. Today is just windy. Though I suppose that it's less than yesterday because the tree outside my window isn't smacking in to it today.

Writing the daily blogs makes for the entries to typically be less lengthy, but far less interesting things are written about. Oh well. It's more just to give me something to do rather than entertain you all. If I wanted to write entertaining blogs, I'd probably sign up for a site that would generate revenue.

Until tomorrow. . .

Brain melting complete
Saturday. 12.12.15 3:45 pm
My brain hurts. I was up way too early this morning and stared at a computer screen for far too long. The goal was to get everything completed through til end of June; we completed through the end of March. However, the first two hours were spent doing things manually that we shouldn't have had to do. And we were informed that there would be several changes starting in April, so there was really no point in doing a full build just to have to go back and change it all again anyway.

My brain was melted by the first hour. I mean, once we got all the manual things completed and finally dove in to the full build, it went by a little faster, but still. You're eyes get crossed after repeating the same steps over and over and over. The plus side was that the entire day was overtime; we got to wear whatever we wanted {rather than actual work appropriate attire} and there were snacks provided. So it wasn't a horrible day. Just not how I typically imagine my Saturday going.

My ears are still a bit sore. Going from a 2 to a 0 is a much bigger step than I realized and sleeping on them last night didn't help much. Hopefully tonight won't be as bad.

I ended up not going to the gym because I forgot half the stuff I need: like headphones and running shoes. Even if I'd remembered to bring them, I still probably would have just come home. I'll see how I feel tomorrow when I wake up and may go to the gym then. It kind of depends on my ears.

Until then. . .
