The weather
A constant state of being.

Silly question
Wednesday. 3.9.16 8:44 pm
I legitimately have days where I look outside and think, "is it really still raining?" Of course it is, you do live in Seattle. Despite the fact that it is far less rainy than most people think it is, it does still rain fairly consistently on the days when it does rain. You'd think after 5 1/2 years here, I'd be used to it by now.

A couple of my coworkers discovered the weird quirk I have when it comes to even/odd numbers. Usually when people have small amounts of OCD, it usually has to deal with things not being straight, or in the right place. If something is just slightly off, they fix it and it's fine again. I don't freak out if I don't have something in an odd number, but it makes me feel better if it is. Hence why most of my blogs are typed out on the odd dates. If I really feel like I need to get something out of my system, I will do so regardless of the date, but it just feels better if it's on an odd date. I'm sure I've mentioned this in the past, but few people who personally know me, know about this quirk.

I'm gonna call it an early night tonight. It probably partially has to do with the rain, but I've been sleepy most of the day. I was tempted to go to sleep when I got home, but I knew I needed to eat dinner and call my mom. I watched some YouTube videos to keep myself awake long enough to make it only a slightly early night; if I go to bed too early, I'll be awake way earlier than I need to be on a work day. Or really any day, but if I'm awake at 3am on the weekend, I don't give a shit if I can't get back to sleep for an hour since I won't have to worry about waking up to an alarm. If that happens during the week {like it did last night... maybe that's part of the reason why I'm so tired} it's annoying.

I had a couple weird dreams last night too. It was a combination of a house party that someone at work was hosting and then I was part of a zombie apocalypse. It was weird. I like to tell people I know if they appear in my dreams, but I'm not sure if I should tell this person. I don't know him well enough and I'd like to not make it super awkward. So we'll see. If I remember, I'll bring it up, but I talked with him twice today and I forgot each time.

Anywho, I'm gonna knock out now. I'm so ready for sleep. At least tomorrow is one day closer to Friday. I'm even more ready for the weekend.

Rut
Monday. 3.7.16 9:12 pm
I feel like I've been in kind of a rut lately. I haven't gone exploring in a while. I haven't taken any exciting pictures. I haven't gone on any wild and crazy adventures. I've gone out with friends, but I haven't done anything for myself in a while. I just have no idea what I want to do, though. I also feel like this is affecting the quality of my blogs. I'm just typing about the same old stuff, repeating incidents that happened with fussy patients, etc.

I dunno. I just feel like I'm in a bit of a rut.

Tomorrow is going to be worse than today. I didn't even see how many patients we have scheduled for tomorrow, but the person who's covering for one of the girls who's at a different site for training, I hate him. No, hate is a strong word. I severely dislike him. I was way happier than I probably should have been when I found out he'd taken a permanent position. I thought this meant that he wouldn't have to work on our floor anymore. Clearly I was mistaken. I keep saying that I'd need a drink after a day like I'm assuming tomorrow is going to be, and I actually still have beer in my fridge, but then I remember my goals and I refrain from drinking.

I also do not have any kind of foods that will go well with the beer. I'll need to get pizza or something of the sort for that.

Anywho, wish me luck for tomorrow's shift. I'm calling it an early night because I'll need my rest.

Oh, I bought another bikini from VS. They were still on sale and I wanted to have some kind of variety. It should be here in a few weeks; the top is on back order. We'll see how it fits once I get it.

Decisions to make
Saturday. 3.5.16 10:56 am
A coworker of mine and her husband are renovating their basement in to an apartment to rent, and it was offered to me for a very reasonable price. I will have to go look at it first, before I make any solid decisions, but right now the only qualm about it is that it's farther south than I was wanting to live. In all fairness, it's about the same distance from work as the places I was looking at farther north, but still; I have this weird aversion to south, remember?

It's going to be several months before they'll be finished and ready to have any tenants move in, so I have some time to think on it. I'm still working on paying off the debt that I owe {I'm so close to being done!} and I have two vacations this year that I need to save more money for. Definitely something I'm seriously considering, though.

I skipped Thursday because I wasn't feeling well. The two potlucks I went to, I overstuffed myself with carb-loaded foods and stuff that just isn't generally healthy and I paid the price for it. I've been eating healthier for long enough now that when I put crap like that in my system, I notice almost immediately. Don't get me wrong, the food was tasty, but I did not feel well shortly after. I skipped the gym and the exercises and ended up in bed by 8. Yesterday, I took it easy. I only ate what I normally would eat for the day and by the end of the work day, I felt back to normal. I combined Thursday's and yesterday's challenges in one and will be going to the gym tomorrow to make up for the lost time this week.

I've been thinking about donating some of my extra shoes and clothes to Goodwill... I have plenty of stuff that I just don't wear anymore; they'll likely throw out the stuff they can't sell. I just have to gather it all up and get rid of it. It'll be better than just throwing all of it out, when someone could use what I don't anymore. It's just a matter of actually motivating myself to do a full clean. If I'm going to be moving in the next few months, it'll have to be done anyway.

No plans for this weekend. Next weekend is going to be busy; I have my hair appointment and it'll be the first paycheck of the month so it'll be girl's night as well, granted my coworker is feeling well enough to go out by then. She's been sick for a week and finally went to the doc yesterday. Hopefully the stuff he gave her helps.

I'm hoping to get in some good reading and possibly more coloring this weekend. The whole plan it to just take it easy. It's really nice outside today so I have my windows cracked to let in some fresh air. It's definitely Spring time here. Everything is blooming and the weather has no clue what it wants to do half the time. I wouldn't be surprised if it starts pouring later, despite the fact that it's sunny right now. This time of year it just kind of comes out of nowhere.

Back on track
Tuesday. 3.1.16 7:09 pm
After splurging on take out all weekend, including yesterday, I've managed to get back on track with my food intake. I went grocery shopping after work last night so now I am set until the next payday. I also spent enough to keep me from buying anything unnecessarily until then, and prevent me from eating more than a portion size at home as well. I need the food to last me the whole two weeks.

Things were back to normal at work today. We were busy, but patients were back to their normal level of dickishness. It's totally our fault that traffic is fucked and we are fully to blame for the fact that they went to the wrong building and we didn't come find them to tell them where to go and blah blah blah.

The weather was all over the place again today. It's definitely getting close to Spring. The trees are beginning to bud and the weather is about as bipolar as you can get. Sunny one minute, pouring the next, dark, light, windy, calm. All in the span of about an hour. And repeat. As much as I'm hoping for a cooler than normal summer, I have serious doubts that it'll suddenly change the pattern of getting hotter and hotter each year.

Either way, I'm sure this pattern of weird ass weather will continue for the next month or so. It'll start to settle out in to more sunny days to rainy days as we move in to April, then it'll be farther and farther between rainy days until we finally head in to our drought for two months. Then the relief of Fall will finally come. It's not even technically Spring yet and I'm already ready for Fall...

Leap day weirdness
Monday. 2.29.16 8:01 pm
Most Mondays are annoying in general, but this one there might as well have been a full moon. However, because today happened to also be leap day, if there had been a full moon, it would have been highly advertised. Since it was not a full moon, it was only marginally as weird as it could be considering it was the extra day of the year. Why did the extra day have to be a Monday?

People were either overly rude or just way more strange than we're used to. There was a lot of looks exchanged between coworkers and even the medical team was experiencing it. I'm not sure if the call center was dealing with it as well, but most people I interacted with, on the employee side of things, definitely noticed it was way weirder than a normal Monday. Oh well. The fact that it was leap day kept me in a decent mood despite the fact that patients were acting asshole-ish and strange.

Tomorrow starts a new month and I'll be starting the 30 day challenge over. I kind of fell off the last few days of this month so I'll be redoing it, plus adding a push up challenge. I need to work on upper body as well. It's the "easy" challenge. Fewer per day, more rest days, but I need to start out simple. I also have the regular one for April. I'll work my way up, little by little, so that I don't destroy myself trying to get in shape.

4 more years before we have another February 29th... I'll be just as excited about this day as I am now. Every year it occurs; it's probably my favorite date.

Curiosity on hold
Saturday. 2.27.16 2:47 pm
Well, I ventured out of my comfort zone and met up with someone from Tinder last night. I'm really not surprised it went the way it did. I knew pretty instantly that it wasn't going to work out, but I did what my friends suggested and went with the flow of things. I knew going in to it that we'd not have much in common and it became painfully obvious almost right away. We both kept up the pleasantries, but in the end we both knew it wasn't going to work. I didn't like how he rushed the end of the "date." It made me quite glad to get back home and almost happy when he text me this morning saying that it wasn't going to work out.

It was only one bad date, but it was enough to remind me that I was right in my original plan to stay single for a while longer. I'm just not really ready to be involved with anyone at the moment. I'm sure it'll happen when I'm least expecting it, but now is not that time. So I've put my curiosity back on hold and will be continuing as I have for the last couple months: just hanging out and doing whatever I want without restrictions. If I want to sleep until 11:30 on the weekends, like I did this morning, completely not on purpose, I will. If I want to go out with people until later than I should, I will. If I want to shut myself in and not talk to anyone for 3 days, I will. No restrictions or having to answer to anyone as to why I've suddenly vanished.

Now that I've gotten that out of my system, I'm being lazy today. I will do my adulting tomorrow. I will probably order take out for dinner tonight from the cafe that's next door. This way I can save on delivery, but still have delicious food that doesn't require any prep on my part. It'll be my splurge for this weekend. Although, I'm really thinking I might get sushi tomorrow. I'll be going out that way anyway... we'll see what my finances look like after I've done all the necessary things.

I finally watched The Martian last night. Not as good as the book, but still good. I get why they left out some of the parts. I'll watch it again at some point; I own it now. Amazon had it on sale for $10 so why not. It's one thing I can buy on Amazon that I don't have to worry about shipping woes.
