Quickie lunch blog
Wednesday. 7.1.15 2:14 pm
I've come home for lunch two days in a row now. It's not going to be a regular thing, but it's nice knowing that I have the option to come home for lunch. I have a solid 30 minutes to hang out at home so it gives me time to relax or make food or whatever before I have to go back to work.

Yesterday I came home because I forgot to turn my fan on before I left. It gets really hot in here if there's no air circulation. Today, I forgot to shut my bathroom door, which seems to really help keep it at leave a few degrees cooler because it darkens that entire side of the room, and with the window in there open, it actually keeps that little room cooler as well.

Tomorrow I will likely stay at work for lunch.

After work today, I'm meeting up with a couple friends to drinks and it'll be bittersweet. One friend is leaving on Friday so it'll be the last chance we'll get to hang out with her. But, she's going home for a good reason so we're happy for her.

No real solid plans for the weekend, except for early Saturday morning. I may just go out of town again, but I'm not sure. Everyone I know is going out of town so why not me? The difference is that I'd be going alone, which everyone else is going with people.

Anywho, I should probably finish up my food and head back to work. You guys will just have to find out what I did next week.

Until then. . .

Homestretch
Monday. 6.29.15 6:15 pm
Tomorrow is the last day of the month of June, and just like every year for the past 20, I'm looking forward to the month being over. This month actually wasn't too bad for me this time around. It probably has something to do with the fact that I have a job I enjoy doing and people who will listen to me and give me advice and support. And make snarky comments when necessary. It seems like my sister and mom are doing well enough this time around as well. I guess we'll see how tomorrow goes. . . considering it's the actual day of.

It's not dropped below 80 in my room in about a week. There was a very brief reprieve yesterday because it was cloudy the entire day, but because it was still warm, it didn't cool off any. It didn't get any warmer, which was nice, but it stayed above 80 the whole day. It's awkward when you want to go inside to cool off, but really don't have that option.

It's only supposed to stay this way, or get just a smidge hotter the entire rest of the week. I have no idea when we're forecast to have rain again. I'd really like for it to be autumn again. It's my favorite time of year.

Anywho, I'm keeping this short because leaning on the computer is making my hands warmer than they should be so I'm gonna dive back in to Netflix while I sit in front of my giant ass tower fan, trying to keep cool.

Until next time. . .

Just like the last one, so many months ago, this title does have a relevance, but the only person who would understand what that means doesn't read my blog.

If you are reading it ... then ... hi! Hello there!

This entry is going to have nothing to do with you, so if you don't want to keep reading, that's fine. If you do, enjoy.

I'm still trying my damnedest to get to VA for my cousin's wedding. I want to meet up with my family members that I haven't seen in over a decade. There's only two people from my extended family whom I've seen in the last 10 years: my uncle who randomly decided to use my sister's wedding in 2010 as an excuse to go to Vegas and last year when my aunt was out here on business. That's it. I have until the 25th of July to RSVP. I also want to kind of make it a secret. Like, only tell my aunt and cousin that I'll be going. I want to show up and have everyone else surprised that I'm there. I've grown up quite a bit since most of them last saw me and although pictures on Facebook are a thing, I'm pretty much a carbon copy of my mother so it'll be fun seeing her siblings reactions to seeing me in person.

Tomorrow is midweek ... I really need to catch up on my work. I'm about two days behind now and I'd like to be caught up again. It's annoying that they can't just send things through every couple days. They have to wait and send it through in a big batch ... and then get people complaining because it's been a week or more and they still haven't received a call. Or, they have to wait another month before we actually have something available. Don't get me wrong, I still like my job; just the way they handle some things is frustrating.

Next week is supposed to get hot ... They're forecasting 90s for the whole week. Considering I came from Vegas, 90 shouldn't be a huge deal, but 90 is hot no matter what part of the country you live in. Especially if there's no air conditioning. Luckily, I seem to have come up with a weird method that seems to be keeping my place under 80. And the giant tower fan, I've not had to turn up above the first setting, so that's a plus. I even get chills with it pointed directly at me. Then I just sleep with my little fan on. I've even been keeping the fleece blankets on my bed. We'll see how well this works when the temps soar.

I really want to go out of town again this weekend ... I have to find things to do around the city that don't cost me anything. It's actually not hard to do; there's so many hidden, and not-so-hidden, gems around here that I can explore. The idea of getting out of town is just so much more appealing. It's my way of escaping every day life without the commitment of permanence.

I'm excited for tomorrow, actually. I have plans for lunch and I have plans after work. The rest of the week there's nothing exciting planned, but tomorrow is going to be good.

No idea when I'll write again.

Until then ...

Up in your face
Sunday. 6.21.15 9:59 am
Funny... no matter how hard you try to avoid something, it always seems to be right there in your face. You avoid Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and any other social media site. You avoid Google and YouTube and news websites. You avoid going to certain sections of a store. But no matter how hard you try, the only sure way to avoid something you know is everywhere, is to completely lock yourself up in your room and read books the whole time. Or just stare at the ceiling. Either option will keep the thing you're trying to avoid out of your line of sight.

Today is Father's Day and, although I don't try to avoid it as much as I used to, I still try not to really think about it. It's been 20 years {on the 30th of this month} since dad passed away and it's gotten easier with the years to see the stuff in stores and hear people talk about doing things with their fathers. I don't actively try to avoid it as much as I used to. However, I do try not to think about it. Obviously I'm not doing a very good job today, since that's what this entry is mainly about, but still.

I'm merely pointing out how, no matter what you do, it's nearly impossible to completely and entirely avoid something you don't want to think about.

In other news, I've gone to the gym twice this weekend. I was only going to go yesterday, but I felt like going again today. After getting out of the house last night and going to a park that I think I've only been to once, seeing all the people being carefree and probably high/drunk as fuck, I decided that I would go to the gym again this morning.

I planned to go to the park just to find a new vantage point for watching the sun set; when I got there, I'd forgotten that it was the summer solstice festival and there were quite a few people still there. Music was playing in about 4 different sections of the park and people were sitting around in groups, small and large, just drinking, laughing, smoking and dancing. I walked around a little bit, weaving my way in and out of the groups of people, trying to find the best places to take pictures. The sun set wasn't as beautiful as the one a few nights ago, but I wasn't in a position to be able to take pictures of that one. Taking pictures behind you, while driving on the freeway is typically frowned upon.

I have one more place to go today and that is to put gas in my car. I shall be doing so as soon as my laundry is done. Otherwise, I'm in for the day and will be binge watching PLL on Netflix.

I didn't sleep very well last night. I ended up not going to bed until around 1:30 and was awoken around 2:30 and again around 5:30 and 6:30. I finally gave up and got up around 7:30. Hopefully the lack of sleep last night helps me sleep well enough tonight, since work starts back up again tomorrow.

Food = gym
Friday. 6.19.15 7:22 pm
I ate so much food today ... I was already planning on going to the gym in the morning, but this definitely solidified the plan. The baby shower that I went to, for whatever reason, I didn't think would have that much food. It did, so I indulged. And of course, the one time my friend didn't bail on me for burgers {we've been trying to plan this for the past month} is the day that I overindulge at lunch. I went out for burgers anyway because the place we went to is amazing, but I'm so full.

Walking afterwards helped slightly. I don't feel like I'm going to explode, but I'm definitely not going to eat anything afterwards. I am glad that we finally got together, though. It's been a while and it was nice being able to catch up. Who knows when we'll get together again, though. His schedule is graveyard and now that he finally has weekends off, after working weekends for the last several years, he's taking full advantage. Which, I totally don't blame him; it just takes patience when trying to plan a get together.

No definitive plans for the weekend, other than the gym in the morning. I need to go to the bank at some point tomorrow so I think I may plan my gym trip around that so that I can just stop at the bank afterwards. I also need to go grocery shopping, which, depending on how I feel may or may not be postponed until Sunday. Laundry is definitely a thing that has to happen, but that'll most likely be done Sunday morning. I like having fresh clothes for Monday.

I'm having one of those moments when I want to stay up really late, since I don't have to work tomorrow, but at the same time go to bed right now. I'll likely end up just going to bed at my normal time; I guess we'll see what happens.

I know that my entries have been sparse this month. I honestly haven't really had anything I've wanted to write about. I went out last Friday to a park/"beach" and took pictures of the sunset. They came out pretty well. It was my dad's birthday and I really couldn't think of anything that I could do for him so I felt like going out to a place I'd never been. It was actually really lucky that my car didn't get towed because I was in a place that required a permit, which I don't have yet, and I was there for at least 30-45 minutes. I don't think it was a full hour, but it could have been close to it.

Anywho, I'm not sure how many more entries I'll be writing this month. I guess it depends on if I actually feel like there's something I want to write about.

Until then. . .
