Independence Day
Thursday. 7.4.13 11:31 pm
Up at 5am for work, had a very boring day at work, as holidays should be. Came home, changed and drove to my friend's place.

What a better way to celebrate American Independence than with demo derby races and crashes, with fireworks to end it.

I have to be up for work in 5 1/2 hours. Time for sleep.

Until tomorrow. . .

Nothing new
Wednesday. 7.3.13 6:38 pm
This will be rather short. Absolutely nothing of interest occurred today and nothing else is coming to mind that I would like to write about.

The weather has finally dipped below the 80s, but only just. It's starting to feel like how Seattle should feel like in the summer.

People are already setting off fireworks. They were setting them off last night as well. Too bad people don't set them all off early and run out on the 4th. Could you imagine a quiet, peaceful night after the major fireworks shows? A night where you're not being woken up every 30 minutes by people setting off even more fireworks? Yeah, I can't either. It'll never happen. Oh well. Twice a year, I think I can go without a decent night's sleep.

Alright, tomorrow is technically my Friday, but since I picked up an extra shift this week, it'll just be Thursday. The clinics will be closed for the holiday so the shift should go by rather quickly. Things will either be peaceful and calm or the shit will hit the fan. Either way, I'm hoping for a quick shift.

Until tomorrow. . .

Finally
Tuesday. 7.2.13 7:00 pm
This morning it finally felt like Summer time in Seattle. There was a nice breeze last night that actually cooled off my room quite a bit. I had to turn my fan off for about an hour because it was a little too chilly. I left the windows wide open when I left for work and the breeze and cool air helped cool it off even more. It still didn't get below 70, but it was at least far enough under 80 that it felt comfortable.

My room temp is back up to 81 right now, which is the same temp as outside, but it's not completely unbearable. I only have the fan setting on low and it'll stay that way for the rest of the night. Supposedly there will be a nice breeze from the ocean tonight to cool Seattle off even more so fingers crossed. I'd much rather wake up cold than not be able to sleep because it's too hot. I'll also be waiting until the sun goes down to take a shower in hopes that there will be enough cool air coming in that my place won't heat up too much from the hot water.

One of my coworkers called off from work today. I knew he was going to and I was almost 100% sure I knew who would be covering for him, but I still didn't like it. The guy isn't a bad guy, he just has a snooty attitude. The way he carries himself makes me dislike him. Tuesday is usually the day I don't care much for due to the patrol rotation, but I guess today wasn't too bad. I didn't get a single call the entire second half of the shift, which almost never happens. Tomorrow will probably be busy to make up for that fact.

Two, possibly three, more days of work. I signed up to work some overtime on Friday morning, but I haven't heard back yet on whether I will be or not. It's a give or take at this point. I'll be going out Thursday evening so I kind of want to be able to stay out longer, but at the same time, I could really use the extra cash. We'll see what happens.

Alright, I think that's all I have for today.

Until tomorrow. . .

Are we there yet?
Monday. 7.1.13 8:29 pm
It's a new year for me. I'm so glad July is finally here. Not for the fact that it's summer and effing hot right now, but because it means that June is over and I have a whole year before it comes again.

It did not get as hot today as they were expecting it to. The record high for the day was, in fact, broken, but not by going up to 95 like they predicted it to. I don't even think it passed 90. But again, the fact that I have no air conditioning makes a huge difference. It's 87 in my room right now. I can't wait for the sun to go down because then there will be at least cooler air to come in through my windows. Last night the temp in my room never dropped below 81.

Fuck this heat wave. I can't wait until it goes back down to normal temperatures, which would be in the low-mid 70s. Ugh!

With my next paycheck I will be purchasing a tower fan; something that is minimal in size {helpful in a 190 sq ft room} yet powerful enough to cool off the room. My little fan now doesn't do much other than blow the hot air. It's at least moving air. I would buy the fan now, but I don't have enough money to do so with this being the rent check and all.

Also with the next paycheck, I will need to get my vehicle emissions tested {I will never get used to calling it that; it will always be a smog check} and registered so that I don't have to deal with parking enforcement ticketing my car for expired tabs. I will also be buying a new bathing suit {I never wore the bikini that I bought years ago, but I'm also about 30lbs heavier so it doesn't quite fit} and a new bra since a wire in my favorite one snapped a couple days ago. It made me sad, but I was more or less just waiting for that to happen. I'd had that bra forever now.

I went to three stores today looking for Aloe Vera and found none. I'm not surprised that they were sold out, but still. You'd think they would have extra stock. I'm fairly certain Walgreen's would have had some, but I'm too cheap and not burned enough to spend the extra money on buying it at a drug store. If I go to Bellevue tomorrow I'll check the stores there, but the odds are about the same as here. I may have to give in and spend the extra amount. And no, store brands don't cut it the same as name brand when it comes to Aloe Vera.

Alright, the sun has dipped behind the high rises for the night. It hasn't really set, but the temperature is actually already dropped a couple degrees. Time to open my windows up fully and hope for a breeze.

Until tomorrow. . .

Hi Dad.
Sunday. 6.30.13 4:49 pm
I miss you. It's kind of hard to believe that it's been 18 years. For some reason it's harder this year than the last few. I know you're there, but I wish you where here.

Tomorrow starts a new year. Regular blogging will resume then.

And getting hotter
Saturday. 6.29.13 3:34 pm
My phone is saying it's 79 right now, however it's only 3:30 in the afternoon. It is a whole degree warmer in my room. I actually put my hair up, which is something I don't like doing on my days off, because it's just too long and hot to keep down. I'll be leaving it up the rest of the day. There's a breeze outside, but it's a warm breeze. It's probably going to be the same temperature today as it was yesterday. And it will only get warmer from there.

The entry today is earlier than normal because I'm going out in about an hour and I'm not sure I'll be back before midnight. I might be, but it's a give or take at this point. It really depends on when my friend wants all of us to leave.

I didn't buy the other fan I want yet, but with temperatures as warm as they are here, the stores are probably sold out at this point. I know it's not nearly as hot here as it is in other places, but Seattle isn't used to this kind of heat. Especially not this early on in Summer. I hope this is the only heat wave we get this year, but I have serious doubts.

Alright, I'm going to watch another episode of Master Chef before I head out for the day.

Until tomorrow. . .
