The weather
A constant state of being.

Well, hello there.

Bonus!
Thursday. 2.11.16 8:03 pm
When they agreed upon the new Union contract, the language was kind of weird when it came to describing who would receive the bonus for this year. I figured that I wouldn't get it since I wasn't technically a permanent employee. So when my coworker looked at her check and said something about it, I just automatically assumed I'd not get it. Until I checked and it was there! It's not a lot, but it's more than I would have had normally so I'm thankful.

Throughout the day I was seriously considering not going to the gym this evening. I only went once last week and I will be going out most of this weekend so I really needed to go tonight. But I just didn't want to, which is when they say you actually should go. So I did. I didn't push as hard as I did last weekend, but it felt rewarding nonetheless. One of the other department managers was there and complimented me on doing the interval sets. Apparently it's really hard to slow down and then speed back up again. It's how I've always done it so going for longer periods of time at a faster speed just isn't possible for me yet.

Work was nuts this morning. We got a bunch of template changes, same day and next day reschedules, and mornings are our busiest time for patients. We got everything done, however, in a fairly efficient period of time. All of the work was done by the end of shift. It definitely helped that it was a slow patient day. If it had been a normal amount of patients, we'd not have been able to complete all of our work.

Here's to hoping tomorrow's shift goes by quickly!

Again USPS? Really?
Tuesday. 2.9.16 8:28 pm
The courier who delivers our mail either 1) can't count, 2) can't read, 3) doesn't give a flying fuck, or 4) all of the above. This is probably the third time that I've had a package from VS delivered to the wrong mailbox. So now I have to wait for whomever it is that got it to check their mail and hope that they're kind enough to give me my $100 order. I'm having another small box get delivered to me sometime soon so now I have to keep my fingers crossed on that. Ugh.

I've been thinking about gauging my ears again. I really shouldn't, and I know I said I'd stop at a 0, but I really just want to go up one more size. I am really hard set on staying below the inches measurements. I have a second hole in my right ear that would get seriously fucked up if I stretched the first hole that wide. Maybe I'll just stretch the left ear, since I only have the first and third holes still open. My ear piercings are already uneven as is. I probably won't; it's just nice to think about from time to time. Perhaps I'll get a new piercing altogether...

My computer at work hates me. I just need a new one, but because the IT department is still saying they're working on fixing the issue, my manager told me to just give it a few days before we light a fire under someone's ass to rush order me a new PC. We've already determined that it's the computer itself, not my login because I can use the other two computer workstations just fine. My own? Nope. It was supposed to be fixed with the reimage last weekend, but instead, created a whole new problem. One that IT has to replicate in order to fix, but they need to figure out how to replicate it first. Ugh.

Maybe the title of this entry should have been "ugh". . .

Just another day
Sunday. 2.7.16 11:10 am
I hung out with my friend yesterday and we went to look at a potential house he and his fiance are thinking of buying. I really didn't like the house. I felt they were interested in it for the wrong reasons and I'm glad he had another friend of his there who was more knowledgeable in the technical side of things. Things that I saw that looked weird, he pointed out as to why they looked weird and what would have to go in to fixing it. Obviously, it's up to my friends on whether they want to put all the work in to fixing up this house, but still. I think they can do better, even in their lower price range.

We didn't hang out for long; probably only a few hours. He is working grave shift tonight so he needed to adjust his sleep pattern as such. I came home yesterday and just relaxed. I thought about going out today during the Super Bowl, but I decided against it. Instead, I did what appears to be my normal Sunday morning routine: go to the gym, come home to shower, then put clothes in the wash. I really should go out this afternoon, but I think reading a book is a good alternative. I've certainly had it long enough and I want to be able to return it to its owner tomorrow.

So that's pretty much the plan for the remainder of the day. I'll be off and on the interwebs when I need a break from reading. It's a short book, only a couple hundred pages, so it shouldn't have taken me this long to complete it {I've had it for over a week.} Hence why I want to finish it today and bring it back to my friend tomorrow.

Welcome to Friday
Friday. 2.5.16 9:00 pm
It seems like I wasn't the only person who had a weird as shit Friday. I also felt better about the fact that I wasn't the only person on my floor to be affected by an IT outage that involved re-imaging a computer. I went the entire shift without being able to use my own computer; I went the entire first half of the shift without having access to a computer at all. I definitely wore the wrong shoes to be standing for hours in.

Tonight was a bad night for snacks. I will likely not be buying another package of chewy Chips Ahoy... The Oreo thins I can make last, for whatever reason. So I'll probably keep buying them for a while. Even if I eat 2 servings, I'm still consuming less than 300 calories. I didn't go to the gym this week either; it just wasn't my week for the heath conscious. I wanted to lose those 5lbs before the 24th of this month, but I've been steady at the same 155 for a while now. It hasn't gone up at all, but it hasn't gone down either. Now, I get that eating those damn cookies doesn't help me at all, but still.

I'll be skipping the gym tomorrow and opting for sleeping in. I'll be going on Sunday morning. I like getting up Sunday, going to the gym, coming home to shower and then put clothes in the wash. It just feels like a more productive day. I'll be getting up and going out early enough tomorrow anyway; in order to go to the gym and be home and showered before I need to leave for my friend's, sleeping in will not be an option. I can't sleep in too late on Sunday because it fucks up sleep for work the next day. So sleep tomorrow, gym Sunday, daily exercises continue as planned.

I joined Tinder. I didn't upload any pictures of myself, but I did sync my Instagram profile. If people really want to see, I have a few pictures of myself in there somewhere. I'm not on the app to actually find anyone. I was more or less curious. It doesn't feel like a dating site, probably because it's not. I'm still super skeptical of the app. I likely won't make plans to meet with anyone I "match" with any time soon. Mostly because I am busy the rest of this month. We'll see how this goes.

Alright, I'm gonna call it an early night. It's been a long week. Not quite as bad as last week, but still long enough that I have a headache and I'm sore from standing for several hours earlier this morning. Note to self, put extra pair of tennis shoes in car tomorrow...

Push and pull
Wednesday. 2.3.16 8:00 pm
I've reached the point where my mind and heart are kind of fighting with each other. One is saying that we're ready to start dating again; the other is saying that we need to still wait until we're 30. Whatever is gonna happen is gonna happen, regardless of whether I'm looking for it or not, but I'm not sure what I'm want to do. In the meantime, I'm still quite enjoying the fact that I'm single. Other than a couple weeks ago when I finally worked up the courage to speak to someone, and found out they had a girlfriend, I've not really been interested in anyone. It's kinda nice to be taking a break from that.

I've rescheduled the hanging out from a couple weekends ago to this coming weekend, now that I'm no longer sick. Not sure what we're gonna do, but I'm looking forward to seeing the pets, despite the spastic nature of the dog. That's what happens when you get a ridiculously energetic breed such as a mini Aussie. In this instance, I like the cats just a smidge more.

Sunday will just be another lazy day with laundry to do. I think I'll try to go to the gym on Saturday before hanging out so that I can just stay home on Sunday. Next weekend is a 3 day weekend and I have plans pretty much the whole weekend. I'll explain more about that sometime next week.

So as I'm writing this, it's a bit windy outside. There's a tree outside my window that has recently become tall enough to scratch at my window when it's as windy as it is now. It scared the living fuck out of me the first time it happened... I live on the 3rd floor. There's a fence around the entire building so there's really no way anyone would be able to easily get to my window without using a ladder... how the hell was there scratching? Damn tree. Hopefully the wind dies down before I go to bed so that it doesn't startle me awake.

Plateau
Sunday. 1.31.16 4:02 pm
I've reached my first plateau in the months that I've been working out and eating better. I haven't gained any weight, but I am no longer losing the weight. So I bought a couple different food items, stuff that I'll be better able to portion out, and will be starting a new 30 day challenge tomorrow. I get that there's only 29 days next month, but that's okay. There's 31 days for March, so I'm cool if it carries over a day. I still want to be under 150 lbs by the 24th; that's when the health screening is for work so it would be nice to be under. Even if it's .2 lbs under, that's still under.

I missed writing an entry on Friday because I went out right after work and I didn't get home until shortly after midnight. A couple friends and I went to see Star Wars again. We went to the Pacific Science Center IMAX theater this time, because duh. It was just as amazing the second time around. After the movie, we needed to find a bar so that we could numb up from the hard week. A few drinks in, and several snack items later, we agreed it was time to get home. It was really nice; we've agreed to do that at least once a month.

Yesterday I just kind of hung out around inside. I was feeling only slightly hungover and I'm thinking it was more the fried foods that I'd eaten instead of the alcohol. My stomach isn't used to that much greasy food anymore. The fitness center was closed most of yesterday for plumbing repairs so I didn't feel as guilty about sleeping in. I stayed in bed until 11 and then took a 2 hour nap around 3. I was even back in bed before midnight last night. As much fun as I have going out for drinks, I'm finding that it takes so much longer to recover. Signs of getting older, I suppose.

Today was the day for productivity. I still slept in, but not nearly as late as yesterday. I went to the gym this morning, came home, took a shower, threw my laundry in the wash, went grocery shopping while the clothes were in the dryer, came back home and put everything away. I really should go put gas in my car, but I think I'll wait until later in the week to do that. I still have over a quarter of a tank so if I only go to and from work, it'll last me through til the weekend. I won't wait that long, but still. I also need to go get a yoga mat so that I can start doing the exercises properly, without killing my hands, knees and feet on the carpet.

I really don't want to go to work tomorrow, but the bills don't pay themselves. Oh, speaking of bills, I did my taxes yesterday. Since I only worked the one job last year, I am getting a considerable amount more than last year. Sam's Club really fucked me over on that front. I'll be putting the money directly in to savings so that I can keep it for the plane tickets I'll need to purchase this year. The amount that I'm getting back should be able to cover both of them. We'll see if I can get lucky on the deals.

Here's hoping that this week isn't nearly as stressful as last week.
