A couple weeks ago, Seattle was super hot, broke records for that day and was tied for the hottest major city in the US. Yesterday, Seattle was cold, broke a record low for the day and was briefly tied with Portland, OR for the coldest major city in the contiguous 48 states. Welcome to a Seattle spring.

It wasn't nearly as sunny as it was supposed to be today, which I'm okay with, but it was a bit warmer today than yesterday. This will be the second night in a row that I'll be sleeping with all my windows shut. It's spring time so I'm going to try avoiding turning my heat on, unless it gets super cold. Leaving them shut at night and open during the day seems to be a good combo for now. Soon enough, however, the windows will be open all the time and the fan will be going.

This isn't going to be very long. I want to read some before I go to bed and I also want to go to bed early since I picked up an extra shift tomorrow. It sucks not being able to sleep in on your day off, but I could use the extra money.

Actually, I think that's it for today. Depending on how busy work is tomorrow the entry might be longer.

Until then . . .

Slight spontaneity
Wednesday. 5.22.13 7:26 pm
Hi guys. I did something spontaneous today. It was a little something, nothing major. But it was a first for me.

I made my first ever shoe purchase online.

This may not seem like a huge deal to you, but it is for me. See, I hate buying shoes. Like, really hate buying shoes. I've worn the same kind of shoes for like 6 years now. Before that I just wore the off-brand version of the shoes I wear now. I've owned two pairs of high heels. Each of which I had worn twice, for about an hour each time. Even my mom hated taking me shoe shopping because it was such an unpleasant experience. The one time she brings up was back in early high school, she took me to 7 different stores looking for a pair and I ended up buying a pair back at the first store we had stopped at. After that, mom said she would just give me money and I could go myself.

Second reason why this is a huge deal is because I so rarely buy wearing-type things online {ie: shoes, clothes, jewelry.} I'm the type of person who would rather see it in person and try it on before buying it. I have such a lack of a sense of style that I'm always afraid something won't look good on me so I would rather just err on the safe, boring side.

So I bought two pairs of shoes from the Payless website: These and these . I also want to buy these or these when the store calls me to let me know my order had arrived. I really want to get out of wearing plain, flat simple shoes so that's why I'm going with heels. I also need a new running shoe because the old pair, I realize now, isn't made for running which would explain why my feet hurt after using them too much.

Anywho, I picked up an extra shift on Friday. I'll be working the day shift so I'll still have my Friday afternoon to myself. I just won't be able to sleep in. The extra money will be nice, though. It will be on the rent check so that'll be helpful.

That's about all I have for today.

Until tomorrow. . .

Spring time shivers
Tuesday. 5.21.13 7:11 pm
A cold front moved through today and the high for the day was only 59. It was really nice waking up to the rain, though.

I'm leaving two of my windows cracked tonight in hopes that it won't cause it to be too cold. If so then I suppose I'll just close one of the windows.

I just spent the last hour or so playing Don't Starve. The last round I made it to day 31 before I was killed. I'm nearing that mark now so hopefully I'll be able to get past it this time around. I feel like I'm more prepared, but I guess I'll find out when the time comes.

Because of this, my hands have been exposed and they are now freezing. Trying to type when your fingers are nearly numb from the cold is not an easy feat. However, I seem to be managing just fine.

I had a dream last night that I was in a wheelchair and I needed to find my car somewhere in the parking lot outside of my work {dream work, not actual work.} The way I got around was to motion my arms like I was swimming and it worked fairly well. This action has occurred more than once in my dreams as a way of getting around.

After searching for it, I couldn't seem to find it anywhere so I went inside and asked one of the contractors to help me find it. The problem was that the place I had him looking was in with the washers/stove combos. The model of my car was Nissan, which is what I actually own, but it was found in the form of one of these washer/stove type thing. I then got up out of my wheelchair thing and headed on my way.

I get to this home where my sister and I were living. My nephew was with us. We were in the process of renovating the home; it was a two-story home, around 1200sqft. The flooring needed to be replaced in all rooms and the entire place needed a new coat of paint. While this was happening, we were staying with a friend of mine, whose house looked the same on the outside, but was different on the inside. The kitchen had been turned in to an extended living space. The master bedroom was now the kitchen and the office was the master bedroom.

I have no idea what caused this dream to happen, but it was definitely different. I wonder if I'll dream like that again tonight.

Tomorrow is Wednesday. Only two more days of work. I am so looking forward to the weekend again.

Until tomorrow. . .

Oh sweet... wait, what?
Monday. 5.20.13 8:05 pm
So I'm seriously considering going on a two week vacation the during the first couple weeks of December and I was checking out prices for flights online earlier today. The prices were way awesome! Round trip for under $200. Sweet! I can totally afford that. Not at the current moment, but after another paycheck or two, I can totally buy the plane tickets! Now to add a car rental so that I'll have a way to get around. . .

An ADDITIONAL $800?!?!?!?! WTF?!

Fuck that shit.

So I go to the Enterprise Rental Car website and check out prices and they are around half that. Which makes a lot more sense for only TWO WEEKS of rental time. $800+ is way too much for two weeks. Maybe it's because I'd be picking it up from the airport? Who the fuck knows. I'll have someone pick me up from the airport and take me to a rental car place. If it's better to reserve it online then so be it, but I'm sure as hell not going to go through a flight booking site.

This is all still quite a ways away, but it's good to know approximately how much money I'll need to work on saving up.

Anywho, that's all I've got for today. Tomorrow is Tuesday, which is typically the busiest day of the week for me. We'll see how it goes.

Until then. . .

It was time
Sunday. 5.19.13 7:36 pm
A few days ago I took off my ring for the first time since I had received it because it was getting on my nerves. At this point I don't remember why it was getting on my nerves, but it was. I figured I'd leave it off for a little while then put it back on and continue whatever I was doing. Except I didn't put it back on.

I left it off when I went to bed and continued to not wear it throughout all of yesterday and today. It's not as uncomfortable as I was anticipating it would be. Although, I'm fairly certain that it's because I was ready to take it off rather than making a forced choice to discontinue wearing it.

However, I've reached a point where part of me wants to put it back on, but because I've had it off for a few days, it kind of feels awkward putting it back on. Washing/drying my hands is probably the only thing that I will have to adjust to because I would always have to take it off to fully dry my ring finger. Now that it's not there anymore, I can just dry my hands normally.

The last time the thought to take it off went through my head, I wanted to wait until I had another ring to wear in its place because I didn't want to have a naked hand. Now is a little different. I still don't have another ring to wear instead, but I'm also not nearly as uncomfortable as I was last time; as I thought it would be without it.

I'm conflicted NuTang friends. The ring doesn't have the same meaning to me as it did when I first received it, but it still holds a strong meaning. Do I leave it off for a while longer or do I put it back on? I actually thought about buying a simple silver chain and wearing the ring as a necklace so that I could still have it close, but it would be clear that the meaning is different. Suggestions, comments, opinions are always welcome.

Until tomorrow NuTang. . .

Impeccable timing
Saturday. 5.18.13 8:30 pm
I hate it when I make plans for something then realize that Mother Nature will be ruining my weekend by making her presence known. The timing very rarely ever plays off well. The event/plan that I make usually can't be rescheduled so I tend to just deal with it.

Today wasn't too bad. I slept in ... sort of. My phone rang at 4:14 this morning. No recognizable number and no message was left so whoever called me can go fuck themselves. Then my work called me at 6:29 this morning. I was pissed at that point because it was already light out so falling back asleep was kind of difficult. I eventually surrendered around 8:30 and got my laundry started around 9.

After that I showered, got my clothes put away and Jake and I went out. We drove up to Northgate, wandered around the mall for a bit, got something to eat then watched Star Trek: In to Darkness IMAX 3D. It was pretty awesome.

Now here I am. I am probably going to go to bed soon. I have work tomorrow and despite really not wanting to go, I need the money. So I shall go.

And that's it for today.

Until tomorrow NuTang. . .
