Apparently tree pollen is really high right now because we're transitioning over to Spring. It was warm today, 61 was the high. I was also far more sneezy than I normally am. It was kind of like that weekend a month or so ago when I was super sneezy, sniffling like crazy and couldn't breathe through my nose. I took Claritin so maybe that'll do something. Who the hell knows. If not, I may have to be buying more tissues this weekend.

Tomorrow is Friday! It actually feels like this week went by really quickly. It wasn't a short week, but it weirdly feels like it was. I have to keep asking myself if it was a short week. I think it's because so much has happened with work this week that it's just flown by. Not complaining, just weird. Normally the weeks just drag on and by the time Friday comes, it feels like it's been an eternity since the last.

No plans for the weekend. Mostly because this is the rent check so I have to keep an eye on spending. I am meeting up with someone tomorrow after work. We're meeting at a Starbucks, {I know, super specific here in Seattle} but no idea after that. It could be just that. I'll find out tomorrow.

I went to the fitness center tonight. I didn't push as hard as I usually do, but I also left my place later than I normally do on a work night. I'll go again this weekend and make up for it. I'm really going to try getting to that 3 mile mark in 35 minutes. I'm pretty damn close now. We'll see what happens.

Short entry. . . just felt like I needed to write something so that I wouldn't miss another day.

Just what the doc ordered
Sunday. 2.21.16 7:06 pm
My therapist told me that it was good to have alone time. It helps one become comfortable with themselves and learn to appreciate how good it can feel. After last weekend, and this past work week, alone time was exactly what I needed.

I went to the fitness center yesterday to get in my cardio. I pushed it just a little and got my best time yet, even if it was only by .01 miles. I'm inching my way closer to that 3 mile mark. Once I can to 3 miles in 35 minutes, I'll push for the 10 minute mile. Who knows, I may achieve that by the year's end. I think I'll go twice this week, during the work week. Perhaps it'll help to keep the stress level down to a more manageable level. I'm thinking Tuesday and Thursday? We'll see how it goes.

After the gym, I came home, showered, and stayed in the rest of the day. One of the YouTubers that I watch on a regular basis was doing a charity live stream for the DBSA, the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance. He's managed to raise over $275,000 for them and all of the money goes to support the DBSA. While I had that on in the background, I broke out my coloring book and began the tedious, but relaxing task of making it look pretty. Later in the evening, I started the new book I bought, All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. I'ts much heavier than Sarah's Key, but still good all the same.

Today was laundry day. I was supposed to go visit a coworker who is in the hospital right now, but that ended up not happening. I feel bad for feeling relieved to find out he wasn't up to company. The reason he wasn't up to company was because he was in pain not not feeling well, but I didn't want to be the person to bail on someone in the hospital. I just needed to have this weekend completely by myself. I colored more in the book today and I'll be reading more later tonight, probably for a couple hours before bed.

I don't want to go to work tomorrow, but the bills don't pay themselves, and I want to be able to save money for my vacations this year. Hopefully tomorrow isn't like most normal Mondays.

So drained
Friday. 2.19.16 8:43 pm
Last night's show was amazing! I laughed so hard. I would go see his show again in a heartbeat. It was definitely worth the lack of sleep I got last night. I was asleep by 1, which wouldn't have been too bad, if I'd actually stayed asleep until my alarm. Instead, my system felt it was necessary to be awake at 5. Oh well. It meant that I was too tired to react when I got to work and saw the 78 GI changes that I needed to do.

I didn't get through all of them. There were so many reschedules. And I still have 52 changes to complete for April through June. Monday is already kind of predetermined for that. However, since it is the weekend, I'm definitely not bothered by any of it, and won't be, until Monday morning.

No plans for the weekend, other than the gym tomorrow and laundry on Sunday. After the social anxiety and near panic attack I had from last weekend, I need to be alone this one. It sucks because I wanted to hang out with some people, but I just can't. I start to get uncomfortable whenever I think about doing so. I'll have to apologize and hope my friends understand. I'll make it up to them later on.

My brain is pretty well melted after the way today ended so I'm going to go finish the book I've been reading and then crash for the night.

Until next time. . .

Perhaps you've heard of him
Wednesday. 2.17.16 8:10 pm
Yesterday was not a good day. I'm not entirely sure why it wasn't, but it wasn't. I had to work quite hard to keep from having a panic attack at work. I came home and pretty much shut out the world. I didn't go on YouTube or Hulu, or really any part of the internet. Instead, I read a book. I got halfway through; I'll likely finish it up this weekend. I felt better after disconnecting and focusing on one thing.

Today was better. We finally got me a different computer for work. It's a refurbished one, so I still have to wait who knows how much longer before I get an actual new computer, but whatever. It does what I need it to do. It's just dumb and annoying that they replaced the other two computers, but not the broken one that I've been dealing with. {They're replacing all of the PC's co-op wide between now and May; it just doesn't make any sense how they're going about it.}

I went to the gym this evening to get in a run. I went at a slower pace for a longer period of time and then pushed right toward the end. I came within .04 miles of tying my best time. This weekend I should be able to beat it. I also did my body weight exercises at home before going back to the fitness center. I'm trying really hard to be good this week. I'd like to be down a couple pounds before next Wednesday's health screening at work.

Tomorrow, a friend of mine and I are going to a comedy show at the Paramount. We're going to the later show, because the earlier one was sold out. I'm actually quite surprised that there were still tickets available for the late show. Most of the shows on the tour were sold out. But when I saw how inexpensive they were, I knew I had to buy tickets. It's possible you might have heard of him. A gentleman by the name of Trevor Noah? I'm so excited!! It'll definitely be worth the lack of sleep for Friday's shift.

No real plans for the weekend. At least I don't think so. I haven't heard back about the possible plans for Sunday, but I likely won't until Saturday. We shall see.

Full weekend
Monday. 2.15.16 7:13 pm
Yesterday I met up with the friend I hung out with on Friday, and went to the gym with on Saturday. We went just down the Hill so that she could hopefully get answers to why her taxes were all wonky. We left with some answers, but she has to go back next weekend to actually get the issue fixed.

After we left there, we made our way to U Village. I still had my Amazon gift card and I've been meaning to go to the Amazon Bookstore there so we took advantage of the free day. We both bought a book, All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr, then she bought another book and I got Secret Garden, the original adult coloring book. Once we left there, we went to Blue C Sushi. She'd never been and it was my first time being inside their new flagship store since reopening after moving from where the Amazon Bookstore is now. It had been months since I'd had sushi, so it was long overdue. I definitely got in my fix.

Once we left there, we kind of just wandered about going in and out of different stores, just window shopping. Once we left, we headed back to the Hill and stopped at Blick, a local art supply store. I spent way too much money on their fancy colored pencils, but I guess now I'll never run out. {I ended up buying more at Target.}

Once we finished up at Blick, we parted ways and I did my adulting. I got the oil changed in my car, went to the store for toiletries and such. I finally bought the Christmas gifts for my sister and nephew that I wasn't able to get them for Christmas. I couldn't find the gift that I want to get my mom so I'll probably end up having to go online for it. Once I'd spent way more money than I anticipated, I left and went grocery shopping. I was still home at a reasonable hour, which was nice about starting the day earlier.

Today I got up with my work alarm to meet with a friend at work so that we could go to breakfast. Glo's is a place that both of us had been to once, but the food is tasty so we agreed to go again. It's a very small place and it's always busy so going early was perfect. We got there only about half an hour after it opened. It was already starting to get busy by 8:30.

We went to Ikea after that so that she could get a new duvet cover that she really liked. We mostly just wandered around looking at all the nifty stuff they have there. I was starting to get anxious being around people so I wasn't really as excited about being there as I had been looking forward to all week last week. We didn't go to the restaurant because we were both still full from breakfast. If we'd gone later in the day, it might have been a different story. I guess perhaps next time I go back, if I ever actually go back, I'll get some food.

We stopped at the mall afterwards so that she could get ideas on new bathroom decor for her apartment. It was more fun looking at the stuff in that store than Ikea. Two more stops, at Petco and Best Buy, respectively, ended our outing. I came home and took a nap because I was exhausted. I need a few days away from people, aside from just work people, because I had a busy weekend full of being out and about around people so I need a break.

I do have plans for Thursday, but that will be worth it. And then I might have plans for Sunday, but I won't know for sure until probably Saturday. Otherwise, I plan on going to the gym Wednesday, but that's about it. I spent so much money this weekend, mostly on things that I needed, but probably could have waited getting, so I'm broke again until payday.

Me day swap
Saturday. 2.13.16 5:43 pm
The tentative plans that I had for today fell through so I ended up making plans for tomorrow instead. I'll be joining my friend, whom I was out with last night, tomorrow when she goes in to figure out what happened with her taxes. After that we'll be going to U Village and wandering around there. Definitely making a stop at the Amazon Bookstore, and will probably grab some grub while we're there. After that, no clue.

I really should be doing laundry and going grocery shopping and such today, but I just don't feel like it. I went to the gym this morning and got in a decent run. I'm doing my intervals slightly different than I have been. This week my stomach has been bothering me a little so I didn't want to push as hard as I have been. So what I did was slow down the pace a little, but keep it up for a longer period of time before slowing down to walk for a little bit. Then pushing right at the very end, for the last two or three minutes before cool down. It's gotten me almost to the best time I've ever done, but I don't feel absolutely exhausted by the end.

Last night was girl's night. We went to the Cheesecake Factory for snacks and pre-movie drinks. Afterwards, we went down the street to the movie theater to watch Deadpool. It somehow worked out perfectly. It was a sold out show, we got there only half an hour before the movie, and we had near perfect seats. It was a large screen format theater so the seating was ample. I loved the movie. Ryan Reynolds was amazing as Deadpool, though I can only say that with the little reference that I actually know about the character. I wouldn't mind seeing the movie again. Will it happen? Not likely, but who knows.

After the movie, we wandered back to Belltown to go to Some Random Bar, since I actually knew where it was now. We were supposed to go a few weeks ago when we went to see Star Wars, but couldn't find it. It was a decent place. Not sure if we'll go back; it was a little on the pricey side for food and it's a little more ritzy for a bar than we usually aim for. But if we do want to go back, we know where it is.

I have some exciting plans for next Thursday, but I will elaborate more on them once we actually get in to next week. I don't really feel like talking about it yet, this way I'm not bringing it up pretty much every blog until then. But it's gonna be worth the lack of sleep we get for work the next day.

Anywho, I'm getting distracted and it's taken me longer than normal to write one of these out so I'm gonna end it here and allow the distractions to take over.
