Extended weekend of nothing
Tuesday. 5.19.15 6:07 pm
I know it's only Tuesday, but I already feel like it should be Friday. It turns out the plans I had on Saturday have been postponed again. The friend I was supposed to hang out with forgot she was hanging out with her mom that day and she'd have felt worse bailing on her mom. So now the only plan I still have is to get drinks with a friend after work on Friday.

I was thinking about possibly going out of town over the extended weekend, but in thinking about it, traffic will probably be shit considering it's Memorial Day weekend. I'd rather not be stuck in that, leaving or coming back. So I'll likely end up just staying locked up in my abode, avoiding the warm sun ... I have a lot of cleaning to do so that's definitely a good alternative to sitting in traffic.

If I had someone to go out of town with and enjoy the time being adventurous together, then I'd push for that. But alas, everyone I know already has plans for this weekend so yeah, it'll probably just spend the time cleaning. And sleeping in. Definitely sleeping in.

I'm feeling pretty drained the last couple days so I think I'm gonna aim to go to bed early tonight. I'm not sure why I've been feeling this way; hopefully getting more sleep will help. If not then I just hope it passes soon.

Until next time. . .

I ended up having to do a factory reset on my phone because even after I disabled the sync, it didn't stop. I'm glad I did, though, because I was able to just completely start over from scratch and then only add the things that I wanted to add. Sometimes syncing things up isn't always the best option. Since then, I've only had to charge my phone once. The battery lasts so much longer when it's not trying to import stuff from 2 years ago.

The camera on the thing is awesome! I'm looking so forward to when I get the chance to go take pictures of stuff. It probably won't be this week, but next weekend for sure. I took a few pictures of the cats that I was keeping company over the weekend and I took a shitty picture of a flower just to test the camera on outside objects. The vibrancy of the color was awesome. It's a shitty picture, but the flower came out beautifully. I even braved the bees buzzing around them just to take the picture. The front facing camera is even amazing. It's a wide angle so that makes it much nicer to actually take pictures that way.

My back still itches like crazy. It should be better in the coming days, but for now? Still driving me insane. I'm ready for it to be healed so that I can scratch my back and lay on it again. I don't sleep on my back, and I really have no other reason to need to lay on my back, but it's still something I'd like to have the option of doing.

I got my new phone today. I just activated it about 30 minutes ago so it's updating and syncing everything that it needs to in order for it to be pretty much like the one that I just shut off. There's already a couple features on the new phone that are going to take some getting used to, but that's pretty much with every new piece of technology.

My back is itching like crazy. I will be holding off on posting a finished photo of the tattoo because I want a better picture of it than the one I currently have. The lighting is weird so I'll wait until it's healed and have someone take a picture of the finished product before I post it here. If you'd really like to see it, I have it on Facebook or Instagram.

This entry is appropriately titled because it's been 30 minutes between typing that last sentence and this one. I thought that syncing my text messages was a good idea, but it's retrieving all of them from the beginning of time so it's taking for...ever! and it's draining the hell out of my battery by doing so. I'll probably run the battery down a couple times before I'm finally able to accurately see how long I can go on one charge.

Alright, I need to end this and publish it before I completely forget that it's even a thing. My computer has gone to sleep twice now because I've not been paying attention to it.

Until next time. . .

Something felt different at work today. I'm not sure what exactly, but something felt different. It's entirely possible that it was whatever I was feeling last night that carried over in to today that made me feel off, but something definitely felt different. Though, it's not necessarily a bad different ... just different. I just hate knowing that something is off.

I wanted to go for a long drive last night {this always seems to happen whenever I have to work the next day.} I didn't, because I knew that I needed to get some sleep for work, but I found it kind of amusing that I was using the excuse of "not enough time" as the reason to keep from doing something as reckless as disappearing for a few hours. Going out that close to bed time and driving to Bellingham and back would have been ridiculously reckless. Perhaps next payday...

I'm excited to get my new phone on Friday. At least, that's the estimated delivery date. I called UPS and made sure they put a hold on it at the warehouse so that I could actually get it on Friday, rather than have them try to deliver it and me not be able to pick it up until the next day, or even Monday. That's the only problem with living in a place that doesn't have a leasing office or a way for them to leave boxes at my door. Luckily the warehouse isn't far from my place and traffic shouldn't be bad at all getting down there to pick it up.

The next few days at work should be interesting. We'll be short staffed until at least Friday. Then starting on Monday I'll be switching my main work load. It kind of makes me sad, because I've got a system going for my main stuff now and it works well for me. I'm afraid of it getting messed up by someone else taking over ... it could just be the fact that I hate change, no matter how minor, until I've adjusted and everything is fine again. This change is necessary, but still makes me kind of sad.

Hopefully I can get to a place where I'm on top of the new stuff as I became with the stuff I'm currently doing now. It might take me a few weeks, but it's a way to prove how awesome I am {in a very not conceited way, of course.}

Time to watch more videos. Another blog in a couple days.

Until then. . .

Bailed out
Saturday. 5.9.15 9:03 am
I'm not going to pretend that I'm super happy that my plans for the weekend have been canceled, but I'm really not all that upset either. Two of the plans that I had, I'd postponed those earlier in the week, and the one other tentative plan that I had was just that: tentative. I'm really not surprised that it got canceled. This allows more time for me to take naps and watch more videos courtesy of my new found love.

The only thing that I need to do this weekend, that actually involves me putting on a bra and leaving the pod, is to go to the grocery store and bank. Otherwise, I'm in for the entirety of the sunny and warm weekend.

Yesterday I was looking particularly adorable, but because I had no one to go to dinner with, I went to the mall instead. I returned an article of clothing that I'd purchased online from VS {it looked super cute on the model, but it was very unflattering once on me} and stopped at the AT&T store. I purchased a new phone, which is being mailed to me since the one I wanted was only available online, and came home with some accessories for the phone and a new tablet. The tablet, which was free with a smartphone purchase, is my first tablet. It's a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 and I really have no use for it other than taking it on long trips. But it was free, so why the fuck not.

I'm excited about getting my new phone. I'm sure there's going to be features I don't like, but hey, that happens with every new piece of technology that comes out. I'm actually thinking it's time for me to be getting a new laptop soon ... I got the blue screen of death yesterday ... for the third time in the last few months. I can't think of any reason why my laptop would suddenly be crashing. The only new program that I installed on my computer is Spotify. If it happens again, I may have to bring it to a techie friend of mine and see if he can diagnose it.

Alright, I think that's it for today. Nothing exciting happened during the week that I felt like documenting, which is why I skipped a day. Here's to another lazy weekend!

Empathy, apathy and indifference
Tuesday. 5.5.15 8:23 pm
There are several challenging aspects to my job; most of them are easy to adjust to. Others, that you wouldn't immediately think of, are much harder to become accustomed to.

Sitting in one place, at one desk, for several hours in a row. One of the very few things I miss about the security job is the ability to walk about whenever I please. I don't necessarily miss patrolling, but having the option to just get up and go wherever I wanted around the campus? I do miss that. I've been doing this new job for 4 months now and sitting at the desk is still one of the hardest things for me.

Empathy is another challenge. Empathy is something that allows you to feel for and understand what the person is feeling. Sympathy, on the other hand, is when you feel bad for something that someone is going through. Apathy is when you don't have any feelings at all, which runs somewhere along the lines of indifference. I have a hard time feigning empathy for someone's issue that doesn't affect me. I think I'm pretty good at pretending; saying sorry in a non sarcastic way tends to help with this. But the empathy only lasts as long as the phone call itself.

I've finally gotten to the point where I only concern myself with my job while I'm there. I don't let it affect my personal life because I don't think about my workload while I'm not there. Sure, I bitch and moan and compare stories with coworkers and friends when I'm not at work {also while I'm at work} but it is usually to laugh and de-stress. I'm completely indifferent about the situations of the people with whom I've interacted while on a call.

I'm not sure if this is a good skill to have or it's something that would make people accuse me of being a horrible person. Either way, I guess as long as I don't start making people think that I don't give a fuck about their problems, then we're golden.

Anywho, I go back to the tattoo shop in a week to get the tattoo finished. It's just about healed, which is nice. My back barely itches now and the flaking is completely minimal. I give it a few more days and should be able to clean it with the pouf in the shower and {gently} scratch my back without it messing up the ink. Then I go through this healing process all over again next week.

Alright, back to my new found love on YouTube.

Until next time. . .
