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.

Maybe allergies... again
Thursday. 2.25.16 9:02 pm
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.
