St Patrick's Day
Thursday. 3.17.16 9:15 pm
Since I happen to own a lot of clothing items with varying shades of green, remembering to wear at least one of them today was not difficult. I also have green on all the time, with that being one of the colors on one of my tattoos, but that's beside the point.

I haven't felt much like writing recently, as I'm sure at least someone has noticed. Just not much on the mind that I'm wanting to type out about. I'm not sure if I'll be writing any more the remainder of this week because tomorrow I'm aiming to just be in bed super early and then Saturday I'm going hiking with a friend. It's long overdue so that'll be nice. We have so much to catch up on.

I'm cautiously optimistic about tomorrow's shift. We have less than 100 patients for the day {weirdly enough, since that's fewer than we had during the holidays and tomorrow's just a random Friday} so it, theoretically, should be a good day to catch up on stuff. Theoretically. We'll see what happens.

Best day/worst day
Sunday. 3.13.16 5:55 pm
I didn't mean to forget to write on Friday; I just happened to go out and not get home til late, totally unplanned. I was texting a friend to see if he wanted to go see Zootopia with me on Sunday, but he told me he was already out go see it and asked if I wanted to join him. Since I don't live that far from Downtown, I headed out to meet up.

The movie was a lot deeper than I realized it would be. I mean, I knew there was a story line, but Disney has gotten a lot deeper and deals more with controversial topics as of late. I like how it turned out. After the movie, we decided to stop somewhere for drinks, which ended up pushing my goal to be in bed by 11 out to 2. I already had an alarm set for 8:30 yesterday morning because me and another friend already had a full day planned.

I was luckily able to sleep through until the alarm; I would have been dragging the whole day if I'd gotten any less sleep. I picked up my friend around quarter after 9, we had a couple donuts before heading north for our nail appointment. I only got a pedicure, while she got a mani/pedi. I have two shades of green on my toes right now because St. Patrick's day. I got normal polish this time around so that I can take it off myself whenever I want, rather than having to wait until my next nail appointment to have the gel taken off.

After the nail appointment, we had about an hour and a half to get Downtown for the hair appointments we had to go to next. I detoured long enough to put gas in my car and then got lucky in finding a parking garage in the heart of Downtown that was only $7 for the whole day on the weekends. We stopped at the Pike Place Brewery for a couple drinks and something to eat before going, just so that we had some kind of food in our system.

I had my hair trim appointment first, then a Brazilian scheduled afterwards. This volumizing spray they used in my hair smelled so good and made it super soft so I actually ended up buying a bottle for myself. We'll see how well it works for me without the professional doing it for me. The Brazilian wasn't that bad. There were definitely some parts that hurt and it's a weird feeling afterwards, but we've already scheduled our next two maintenance appointments in the coming months, as well as my next hair trim.

After that, we decided that actual food was necessary so we made our way back up the hill to the Cheesecake Factory. The food was good, as always, but we barely ate any of it, it was so filling. We took our leftovers with us back to my car and then made our way to Pacific Place to do a little shopping. Mostly for her; she needed a new sports bra because I've been dragging her to the gym with me. Success was had so then we stopped at Old Navy so that she could get another pair of workout capris, since the ones at VS are quite a bit more expensive. She was able to get two shirts and a pair of capris for less than what one pair of the workout capris at VS would have cost.

We stopped at Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack so that we could try on dresses just for fun. My friend had never seen me in one, since I don't wear them to work, so it was a fun experience for her seeing me all dressed up. After the fun of that we decided to stop at PF Chang's for a light dinner and a couple more drinks before finally heading to a bar to end the night with more drinks. Altogether I had 5 throughout the day and she had a few more, since I was the one driving. We left shortly after 1 to head back to the car. I got home just before 2 again last night.

Since last night was when the clocks changed, it was pretty much 3 when I finally fell asleep and I was up at 8:30 this morning. I didn't feel very well, oddly enough, since I didn't actually get drunk, so I went back to sleep for a couple more hours. I've spent the day just kind of hanging out and relaxing. I finished off my leftovers from yesterday and have been rehydrating. It's incredibly windy again today and the damn tree is smacking and scraping against my window again so I'm hoping the wind dies down before I have to go to bed. I'd rather not be more tired than normal going back to work tomorrow. The high wind warning is only in effect until 11 tonight so we'll see.

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.

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...
