It's already the middle of May. It's kind of hard to imagine that half of the month has already gone. Memorial Day weekend will be here shortly, then summer begins next month, then Independence Day, then the Dog Days of summer, followed by Labor Day, school starting again, my birthday, Halloween, Veteran's Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas and the New Year.

Holy shit.

The title of this entry also indicates about how much effort I put in to doing my job today. It was my Friday and it went about as smoothly as it could have gone. I'm glad to have the next two days off.

I have some errands to run tomorrow, but otherwise I'll probably just hang out and catch up on sleep and shows on Hulu. Saturday, after I get my laundry done, Jacob and I will be going to the U-District. They're apparently having some kind of street fair so that should be fun. I think while we're out and about we will go see the new Star Trek movie. He doesn't know this yet, but I'm sure he won't object if I'm paying.

The last two nights I've been going to bed early and I have a feeling that temporary trend will continue tonight. For some reason I always end up going to bed early on the first night of my weekend. It doesn't make sense. Perhaps it's because I'm just so relieved that I don't have to work the next day that my body just relaxes to the point where I need sleep. Who knows. I'm not feeling too tired right now, but that could change in an hour.

Anywho, there's some grey clouds moving in from the Southwest so hopefully it brings some rain so that I can have a soothing night's sleep. There's supposed to be rain off and on over the next few days so we'll see how accurate the forecast is.

Until tomorrow. . .

Please, no more

I used to be mildly annoyed by patient standbys, but when you have nearly 3 month's worth in less than a week and a half, it gets really fucking old, really fucking fast. Especially when they mostly involve frequent fliers. WTF people? If you want psychiatric help, GO TO A PSYCH HOSPITAL. . . we don't have the capacity for that kind of crowd, nor do we have the proper staffing for that kind of thing. I'm so sick of standbys.

On top of the two that we had today, there was a rather interesting incident that occurred in the parking garage today that killed an hour and a half of the shift. A person turning to park in a space had the front driver's side tire fall off. It didn't completely separate from the vehicle, but it certainly wasn't properly attached anymore. I'm not sure exactly how it happened, but it was parked diagonally in the middle of the driveway to and from a certain level of the garage. I was redirecting traffic to the employee parking area. Luckily only a few people argued with me about wanting to go the direction they couldn't. I explained that if they wanted to be part of a demolition derby, then they were more than welcome to go where they wanted to. Otherwise, they had to park in a different area.

Needless to say, today was busy. It's like the complete opposite of what happened yesterday. At least it was Wednesday and my coworker is a no-nonsense, straight to the point type of guy who gets his shit done and doesn't take shit from people. I kind of wish he worked day shift instead of swing shift, but it is what it is.

After work, I came home and napped. I had a minor headache from the fact that I hadn't had time to hydrate myself throughout the shift. It helped slightly, but I had to keep drinking water once I woke up. I will actually probably be going to bed early again tonight. My computer decided to update stuff last night {even though I set it up to update only at 5am since I'm awake at that time anyway ...} so I woke up in the middle of the night with the bright ass light of my screen in my face. It took a while to fall back asleep.

Alright, I think that's it for today. It's a little longer than most of the other recent entries, or most of them in general, but I needed to rant about today. It was ridiculous. Here's to hoping that tomorrow is as calm and easy as yesterday.

Until then. . .

Fingers crossed worked
Tuesday. 5.14.13 8:19 pm
I was hoping for calm today and that's exactly what I got. I think I had two radio calls the entire shift and it wasn't for anything important. We nearly had a standby, but luckily nothing came of it. It was a nice, simple Tuesday. For once.

I left work a little early today so that I could get home and change before having to go to the doctor. I'm glad that my new doctor is just as friendly as the last one. Apparently the family practice department had just moved to a newly renovated area yesterday so the place looked and felt really new. It was clean and fresh and fairly welcoming considering it was a doctors office. The exam went about as well as it could. I just have to wait for test results to come back, which usually takes a couple days. I should have them by the end of the week.

Two more days of work then an easy-going weekend planned. I need to pay a few bills with this paycheck, but afterward I'll actually have some expendable cash. I may buy some new shoes that I've been wanting to buy. There's also a few odds and ends things I want to buy, such as a blender ball {for soup mixing, genius idea} and perhaps some cleaning products for around the room.

Jacob and I are looking in to joining a gym again. It's failed the last three times we joined. I think the longest we kept it up was 2 weeks. We'll see if anything actually comes of it this time around. It really all depends on the price.

I kind of want to play Don't Starve again tonight, but I also want to get to bed early, like by 9, so maybe I'll save it.

Anywho, I hope the next two days of work are like today was. That would be nice to end the week on an easy note.

Until tomorrow. . .

Ah! I almost forgot
Monday. 5.13.13 9:10 pm
I lost track of time whist playing Don't Starve and nearly forgot to write an entry before going to bed. Inexcusable!

Not that there's a whole lot to write about today anyway, but still. It's a personal challenge and I must keep up with it! I haven't anything going on this month that would keep me from being able to write at least something each day so I shan't be missing any entries because of a damn video game.

I had a bad dream/nightmare last night that startled me awake right around 1am. It took me about half an hour to get back to sleep. I was afraid to close my eyes. The dream is still pretty vivid in my mind, but I want to try not to think about it. I used my phone a friend card and called Jacob to talk to him about it. I think it really caught him off guard because I never call him at 1am. I also text my sister about it earlier today.

On top of that giving me a hard time sleeping, someone's car alarm kept going off in the middle of the night. It happened 4 times. Needless to say I didn't get much sleep last night so I will most likely be going to bed shortly after I finish typing this up.

Work was the uneventful day that it's supposed to be. I have a feeling tomorrow will be busy simply because it's Tuesday {my Wednesday} and because I'm working with a different person than normal so things will be jinxed, of course. Oh well. I guess I'll just have to wait and see what happens. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for calm.

Anywho, I think it's time for bed.

Until tomorrow. . .

Mom's Day
Sunday. 5.12.13 8:01 pm
Work was busy, but not busy. . . standbys took up a big chunk of our shift again. I actually asked, "why is today happening?" with relevance to the fact that Sunday is supposed to be the easiest, least busy day of the week; security-wise at least. Urgent Care is usually busy on Sunday because that's when everyone decides that the cough they've had for 3 weeks is finally bad enough to go see a doctor.

I called my mom a couple hours ago to wish her a Happy Mother's Day. I had already text her and tagged her on Facebook. I figured I'd touch base with all three methods of communication. The only one I didn't get to was e-mail, but there's still time if I decide to go all the way. I also text my sister to wish her a Happy Mother's Day along with a few of my friends who happen to be mothers as well.

The weather has finally taken a dip back to the normal temperatures. It was 80 yesterday, but it didn't even get to 70 today. It rained at 4 this morning so that was a nice thing to wake up and fall back asleep to. Hopefully it rains again tonight so that I'll be able to sleep soundly. Tomorrow is supposed to be kind of the same as today, with a slightly higher chance of rain so that'll be nice.

If today's activity was any indication as to how busy the rest of the work week will be, I'm now looking even more forward to the weekend. I really hope this was just a one time deal for this week.

Anywho, I'm gonna go browse the net a little bit before going to bed.

Happy Mother's Day to any NuTang moms out there!

Until tomorrow NuTang. . .

Back to routine
Saturday. 5.11.13 7:55 pm
The weekend is over for me and I return to work tomorrow. Joy. Can we just skip ahead to next weekend already?

At least it's supposed to rain tomorrow and Monday so that'll be nice.

Hanging out with my friend with kids reminds me why I don't want any of my own. They're just so annoying! The card and dice games that we played were fun, but I'd rather play with adults.

That's all I have for now. We'll see what tomorrow brings. It probably won't bring anything because all I have is work, but who knows.

Until then. . .
