The weather
A constant state of being.

Easter Sunday
Sunday. 4.5.15 7:14 pm
About the only things I did to "celebrate" the day was sleep in, do laundry, shower and enjoy Reeses eggs. I also ate regular food, but I've been snacking on the mini eggs off and on all day. I wished a few people happy Easter, but otherwise, the weekend has been exactly as I intended: spent inside, in pajamas, relaxing.

I needed a weekend where I just spent the whole time indoors. Before, back when I was still in security, I'd have loved to be out and about as much as I am now. But the tables have turned and I've yet to have a weekend where the entire time was spent inside my little pod. I honestly think the last time I spent the whole weekend completely indoors was back before I quit security. Even on the weekends when I did mostly nothing, there was still tines when I got dressed and ventured out of my room. This time, however, I only opened my door this morning to do laundry. Otherwise, I've enjoyed the weather through the open windows.

Tomorrow is back to work and I'm already looking forward to the end of the week. It's going to be another week where we're super short staffed and there will probably be at least one day this week where I'll be by myself for the entire day. All 13 departments will be my responsibility and I have a feeling it'll be a shit show. It's probably a good thing that I don't get paid until Friday, otherwise I'd likely spend money unnecessarily on alcohol.

Anywho, time to settle in to a movie before calling it a night. I haven't the slightest idea what I'll watch, but that's the fun thing about Netflix ... lots to choose from.

Contacts, the visual kind.
Friday. 4.3.15 9:28 pm
Today was a contacts type of day. I thought about it before I went to bed last night, figuring that I would be going out after work, that I should probably wear contacts. I've only wore them twice before to work and my eyes are usually pretty tired by the end of the day, mostly from having to stare at a computer screen for the majority of the shift. I do have a window to look out, and I can look at my coworkers or go outside on my breaks, but still. 8 hours at a computer screen is rough on the eyes, even when you don't have a lens covering them.

I actually ended up not going out after work. I was thinking about bailing anyway and when a few other people asked if it was still on, I said okay, because there would still be a few people. But then the vote became unanimous that we should postpone it to payday. I secretly rejoiced inside my head.

After deciding that I wanted a weekend to myself, and feeling quite a bit out of it the last few days from the long week it's been, I backed out of the invite for the party I was supposed to go to tomorrow night. I appreciate the fact that they thought of me to come join them, since I don't work with them, but I'm just not feeling social this weekend. I've had a headache all day ... which hasn't helped me feel any better.

Sleep is what's on the agenda for the weekend. I have an alarm set to wake up to see if I might be able to see the blood moon early in the morning, but if it's cloudy I'm just gonna go right back to sleep. If it's not, I'm gonna go outside and hopefully get some kind of pictures of it. Secretly {or not so secretly, since I'm typing it out here} I kind of want it to be cloudy so that I have an excuse to not go outside. But he last time I remember seeing a blood moon was in 2007, at 4am, and I was miserable. I'd like to have a better memory of the experience.

I stopped at the store before heading home from work, bought groceries to get me through the remainder of the week until payday, which left me with all of a dollar and change til then. Oh well. It just means that the plans that I had to go out of town will have to wait. I don't want to use up the gas if I don't have the back up money to fill it if I drive farther than anticipated.

Not next weekend, but perhaps the weekend after I'll go on my little solo adventure. We'll see how things look. If next week is going to be anything like how I think it might be, I'm definitely going to need to go for that drive shortly after.

Beautifully chaotic
Wednesday. 4.1.15 8:27 pm
I wasn't sure what I was going to have to write about for today, since I just wrote yesterday, but alas, thanks to sporadic weather patterns I have at least something.

All day today the clouds kept hinting at a downpour and all the weather reporting outlets indicated thunderstorms. The sun shone for most of the day, with a few periods of cloud coverage. It stayed dry the whole day. At least, in my part of the neighborhood it did. A friend of mine talked about how it was pouring where he was at, all of 10 miles south from me. Another friend talked about dark skies and heavy rain in another section of town, also south from me. Someone else commented on lightning and thunder southwest from my location. So it appeared that the storm would be sticking around down there. When I left work and it was still sunny out, with blue skies and fluffy white clouds, I resigned to knowing that I wouldn't get to experience the crazy weather that I miss so dearly from the east coast.

That is, until about 30 minutes ago. I bright flash of light shone through my blinds and a crack of thunder followed about 5 seconds later. I shut off my light and waited, another flash of light and a faster crack of thunder. Finally, a third followed with an immediate crack of thunder. The storm was right on top of me! I text a few people with my excitement and sat there just as giddy and mesmerized as I was when I was a small child. I've been in love with thunderstorms for as long as I can remember and that will never change. It moved on, leaving behind a pretty amazing night sky and a soaked ground, but I'm glad I didn't get to miss out on it.

In other news, I have 4 weeks to find someone who is off on a Tuesday afternoon, who can take nice pictures and is willing to hang out for a few hours. I've asked two people in hopes that at least one of them would be able to come with me. I even tried to use food as leverage, but it was a no go. The other person I knew couldn't, but I asked just for shits and giggles. My consult for the artwork is a week from Saturday and I'm pretty excited about just that. I hope I can find someone between now and then that will be able to come with me.

It kind of feels like tomorrow should be Friday, but I have to remind myself that I'm not on the security schedule anymore so it's what a coworker likes to call "Friday eve." It's actually the first time in a couple months that I've felt this way. Maybe because Monday was stupid busy and I was already done with the week then. Either way ... It's almost Friday.

Selective avoidance
Tuesday. 3.31.15 7:42 pm
I'm kind of dropping off the grid, without actually dropping off the grid. It's come time to cut the people from my life that aren't doing me any good. The individuals who are more annoying to me than my time is worth. I'm tired of putting out the effort to hang out with people and then being bailed on, so I'm done trying. They know that I want to do things with them so they can contact me if/when they're ready. If they don't, then oh well. It wasn't meant to be.

That being said, I'm trying very hard to not completely cut everyone out of my life. It's moments like these when I want to just stop talking to everyone because I get annoyed and feel like I'm not much company. Until I'm able to get past it and stop being annoyed, I feel like I'd just alienate even more people, unnecessarily. I have a select few individuals that I'm perfectly okay still talking to. I'm also not removing myself from Facebook or Instagram or Twitter in an effort to keep up with doing what I want, regardless of the people around me. It seems to be working so far.

Depending on how much money I spend on Friday {if I even meet up with the few coworkers that are going out} I may just take a drive somewhere. I need to get out of the city and if I have to do it alone, then so be it. I have a couple places that I'd like to visit, but I'd have to make sure that I have enough money to put gas in my car, if needed. That's what would determine how far I go or if I'm even able to go. I should know by Friday evening.

Hopefully the next few days goes more smoothly than yesterday. I'd like to go for a drive to enjoy my time, not to blow off steam.

Poor life choices
Sunday. 3.29.15 6:07 pm
After going out last night and not making it home until just after 4 this morning, I'm definitely not going out again tonight. Which means it's a good thing that the two friends I made plans with are ignoring my texts.

When you have drinks, you want to stick to the same types of alcohol throughout the night, otherwise your system doesn't agree with the concoction suddenly mixing in your stomach and it will eventually expel it. That happened for me around 8 this morning. I only had 5 drinks, but my stomach was next to empty {I only had a zucchini appetizer, some fries and a mint chocolate cake} and I was drinking different kinds of alcohol, none of which really mixed.

I'm not sure why I keep doing this to myself, but it's definitely not something to repeat again any time soon. I'll most likely end up going to bed early tonight. I'll be taking my contacts out here in the next couple hours and will be going to bed shortly after.

Despite the shitty hangover this morning, I did have a good time. The end of the night/morning was a little weird, but whatever. I guess it's too much to ask for something to go smoothly for the entire duration. There has to be weirdness in there somewhere.

Today I went for a walk around Greenlake with some friends and the pup. My hip started to protest about a quarter of the way around the lake, but I powered through it. The joys of having been born with hip problems. . . it always acts up at the most inconvenient of times.

Anywho, here's to hoping I get better sleep tonight than I did this morning.

"Texture"
Friday. 3.27.15 10:52 pm
Due to the skin condition that I have that causes things to stay imprinted on my skin for elongated periods of time, my friend told me that I have "texture." It's not as rare as some people originally thought, but it does take a while for the impressions to go away and my skin to return to normal. Even just 5 minutes of having something pressed in to my skin leaves a mark for longer than the time it took to form.

This was brought up due to the new sandals that I have where the straps dig in to my skin and leave an impression. They're actually quite comfortable, despite not looking it from the end result. I do need to break them in, though I'm not sure when I'll have the chance to wear them again. They're not ideal for rainy weather, which is what's in the forecast the next few days. Perhaps sometime next week it'll be dry enough that I can wear them to work.

I wanted to go do something this even, but I hadn't made any prior plans so when my friend text me asking if I wanted to meet up with them, I said sure. I'm not usually one to make spur of the moment plans, but this was kind of the thing that I was looking for. I met up with them in Pioneer Square and we had drinks and snacked on some appetizers. The atmosphere was nice and the live jazz music was loud. The ringing in my ears has stopped so we must not have been there long enough. The three of them had to work in the morning, so we weren't able to stay out much later than we did.

I'm looking so forward to being able to sleep in tomorrow morning. I don't have any plans tomorrow, but that's okay. I need a day to do laundry and it looks like tomorrow will be it. I also really should go grocery shopping so depending on how I feel, I may do that. It's entirely possible that I'll just end up staying in the whole day.

Sunday I'm meeting up with the same friend from tonight; we're going to take the pup for a walk around Greenlake. Then I'm supposed to meet up with another friend Sunday evening for drinks. No idea where we'll go, but I'm sure we'll figure that out when the time comes.
