One with nature
Sunday. 5.1.16 9:40 pm
A couple friends from work and I went on a hike yesterday. It's a fairly popular hike; there were a lot of people on the trail, but not so much that it was overwhelming. The drive out there wasn't bad, only hitting traffic once the entire way. The trail led up the side of a mountain to a lake. It was a little under 5 miles round trip, and only a few spots were slightly questionable. According to my friends, the hike was much less strenuous without the snow blocking chunks of the trail. The lake was beautiful! If you're friends with me on Facebook, you'll probably have already seen the pictures by now. The lake itself was small, but with the surrounding mountains, it was an amazing sight.
If I were to ever go on a solo hike, that would be a good first one to do. There are enough people there that if something were to happen to me, someone would be around to hear me yell for help... unless I was knocked unconscious. But still. There's a lot of people on that trail.
Today was kind of an impromptu girl's day. After the week we'd had at work, especially the way that Friday went, it was needed. The hike definitely helped out for a majority of relaxing, but today was kind of a pampering. Pedicures, food, new earrings, and shoes. I'm really not looking forward to going back to work tomorrow. Here's to hoping tomorrow isn't nearly as stressful as Friday was.

Thursday. 4.21.16 9:11 am
I have a doc appointment this afternoon, but instead of taking only the afternoon off, I took the entire day; I'm kind of regretting this decision. I've been awake since my normal time, despite turning my alarms off and trying like hell to fall back asleep. I know that I should take advantage of this extra time to clean, or go exploring, but instead, I'm just complaining about being bored. First world problems, right?
I haven't heard anything from my date since Sunday. Considering how things went, and the conversations we'd been having, most of my friends are convinced that something happened, rather than he just suddenly turned in to a straight up asshole who disappeared. Like, maybe something happened with his phone, or he or someone in his family got hurt, or worse. I'm not sure how long I should wait before I reach out to him. I know it shouldn't matter and if I want to talk to someone, I shouldn't make a big deal about messaging them. If they're uncomfortable with it, that's on them, not me. But this is something I feel different about. I want a friendship to actually come from this and I'm afraid of pushing it too much in the beginning. Although, at this point, I'm not sure what this is anymore. For now, however, I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt.
It's days like these I wish I had a puzzle to do. I've been wanting to get a globe puzzle, one of the 540 or so piece ones, that comes with a stand. I have no idea where in this tiny space I'd put it, but I'm sure I'd come up with something. It wouldn't take me long; the sphere puzzles are usually numbered, but still. It would kill at least a couple hours.
I think I'm going to try to sleep for a couple more hours. I don't have to leave for another 3 1/2 hours. And the lawn maintenance people from across the street seem to have finished making a racket so it might be a good time to try to 'nap.' It'll keep my idle hands and mind from going too crazy.
What the shit is this even?

Yesterday was 88 degrees, today is 81 degrees. It's mid April. Seriously, Seattle? I'm not ready for this! To be frank, I'm never ready for heat, but certainly not this early in the year. Luckily, this is just a freak heat wave and we'll be back down to the normal low 60s by the weekend. It can't come quickly enough.
This is going to be a super short entry because I've been awake since 3am and I'm drinking coffee in an effort to help me pass the fuck out and sleep through until my alarm goes off. I will be working the early shift tomorrow, but this means I get to leave early so that'll be nice. Then I also have Thursday off from work so I technically have an extra hour to do whatever I please.
The date on Friday went really well. It actually went much more smoothly than I anticipated. I figured it would be more awkward, since it was the first one. We got along so well and time just seemed to pass without either of us noticing. I feel super comfortable with him. We've talked about getting together again, just not sure when so I'll update as things happen.
Saturday was girl's day. It was an inexpensive one: a walk around Greenlake (again, since walking the lake was part of the Friday date) and then sushi for lunch, before having wine and candy at her place to end the evening. Sometimes that's what's necessary.
I have nearly downed an entire venti Caffe mocha. I normally don't drink coffee because of how quickly it knocks me on my ass, but this was on purpose. I'm already starting to fade so I'll have to make sure I remember to take my contacts out before I pass out. Here's to hoping I can sleep through until my alarm tomorrow morning.
Things and stuff
Friday. 4.15.16 5:46 pm
It's still technically this week until midnight tomorrow so this definitely falls within this week.
I've lost another couple pounds. I've dropped a total of 33 pounds so far. I have another 12-13 left to go. It feels so good and this is one of those things I don't feel overly bad about bragging about to people. I also am bragging only to the people who have seen me at my heaviest and can legitimately see how far I've come. I'm much slimmer than I was 10 months ago and I'm curious to see how much of a noticeable difference another 10 pounds will make. I'll find out eventually; probably another few months.
I'm going out tonight with a new friend of mine. We're going out for sushi (so already pretty much my favorite person) and then probably some drinks. It's the first time we're hanging out so I have a feeling I'm not going to be fully open like I am with my other friends I've been friends with for a while. It takes time to fully open up to someone. And even so, some of my friends I still haven't fully opened up to. I was going to try to take a nap before I head out tonight, but that didn't happen. I think I'm too excited about the sushi.
Tomorrow I have tentative plans to go for a walk through one of the parks here. It's a park we've both been to, but never walked through. There's several miles of mild trails winding and twisting throughout, so it'll kill a few hours if we do go. There's also a lighthouse (which is what I've been to) so we'll definitely have to make our way out to that. Afterwards, no idea what the plan is. I guess it depends on how late I stay out tonight, and how she feels tomorrow; she's been sick for the last few days.
Nothing terribly exciting otherwise. Sunday will probably be just a chill day, also laundry day. No set plans for next weekend yet, but I have a feeling I'm just forgetting what I'm actually supposed to do. I know I'm busy two weekends from now. Then another two weekends after that I'm busy, then the following weekend is Alaska weekend so I'm pretty busy from now until June. I'll just have to make sure I throw in a few days for just hanging out at home and keeping to myself, otherwise I'll have another panic attack. Not exactly something I need any time soon.
Well, that didn't last long
Monday. 4.11.16 6:14 pm
I had every intention of blogging more frequently this month; even after the last entry I was ready to write again a couple of days later. Then it just didn't happen. Oops. Oh well. I've kind of just been coming home after work and diving in to mindless videos and shows. I haven't even been reading the book that I still really do like so far. I've also been coloring a lot more lately, with either Pandora or YouTube playing in the background.
On the weekends, I've either been out and about or just home, avoiding human contact. I think the happy-go-lucky attitude I have to maintain for the patients' sake keeps me from wanting to keep being that way once I'm out of work. It's clearly not affected my social life a whole lot, but still. It's making me enjoy my alone time even more now, so I guess that's a plus? Who knows. I haven't killed anyone yet; I have snapped at a few people when I really shouldn't have, but they're friends so they've forgiven me.
This is going to be really short; I've already gotten sidetracked a couple times just since starting this entry. It's taken me way longer to write it than it normally would for something this short. I will try to write again this week. We'll see how things go.
