Final farewell
Friday. 1.15.16 8:33 pm
Tomorrow is the memorial for the coworker who died this past Sunday. There's going to be a lot, a lot, of people there. I'm not sure the family realizes just how much of an impact this guy had on the staff where I work.

I have some errands to run in the morning before I head over to West Seattle, but then I have my hair appointment Downtown in the afternoon so it'll be a pretty packed day. I was fully planning on wearing contacts to my appointment, this way I could watch the hair cutting process for the first time ever, but a friend brought up a good point about my face shape being different when I wear glasses so the stylist needs to know that I wear them intermittently. Instead of wearing contacts and bringing my glasses with me, I'm just gonna wear the glasses. Fuck it. I'm not the biggest fan of short hair so I might as well be in a blur until the final product. It'll take me a solid month to get used to it, and then I'll be fine because I know how quickly it grows. In the meantime, it's kind of bittersweet that this is the final night I'll have long hair.

No plans for Sunday, except to do laundry. I might even put laundry off until Monday morning and make Sunday a lazy day. I mean, I'll be hanging out doing nothing but watch movies on Monday, but I'll be around people so I can't be the same kind of lazy. We'll see how I feel after the busy, emotionally charged, day tomorrow.

I've also decided that I'm not going to be posting a picture of myself on Facebook once I've gotten my hair cut. I'll post a picture of how much gets donated, but not the final product. Of course, there will be pictures, but I don't feel like posting the pictures. If people wanna see, I can text them, or they can just wait to see it in person. It's not something I'm terribly excited about so I'm not really up to advertising it. You know, because talking about it all week in each blog doesn't count as advertising ...

Anwyho, that's it for now. Until next time. . .

Make up
Wednesday. 1.13.16 7:24 pm
The days have been gradually going back to normal, patient-wise so it's allowed other work to be caught up on. It's a never ending, though, which is fine. My biggest fear with this new position was that I'd be bored; definitely not the case.

After work I came home, changed, and went back to the gym. I needed to make up for not being able to go this weekend and I actually got my best time today. I'll have to make sure I go again this coming weekend. Whether I go before or after I get my hair chopped off is a different story.

The plans for this weekend have been altered slightly. It won't be an overnight thing and the marathon will be split in to two sessions due to sudden plans that came up that he has to deal with. I suppose I'm okay with it. I'll get to see the movies either way; just means that I won't be doing it all in one crazy-long sitting. It'll probably be better this way anyway. Either way, I'm just glad I don't have work on Monday.

I wore contacts to work for the first time in months and the people I work with now have never seen me in contacts before so it was funny seeing their reactions. Apparently I look quite different without my glasses on. I guess I'm used to seeing my face either way, so it doesn't look a whole lot different to me. Since today seemed to go okay with wearing them, I'll probably wear them again tomorrow. Then Friday I'll give my eyes a day to rest before wearing them again on Saturday. This will be the first time I'll be getting my hair cut where I'll actually be able to see what's happening so I'm kind of nervous and excited.

Somber day
Monday. 1.11.16 8:21 pm
I woke up to the news of David Bowie's death all over Facebook. Now, that doesn't affect me terribly, but I know several people who idolized him so it made me feel for them.

About 10 minutes after I get to work, our manager comes up to the floor to let us know that a beloved coworker passed away yesterday. That was just a huge shock. We didn't even know how to react. It was so hard to keep from crying; we were still at work and there were still patients whom we couldn't ignore. It was easier to just swallow it and pretend like it was just like any other day than to explain to everyone why we were crying.

There was a cloud of shock hovering the campus today because of this. Most people knew by 9. He was one of those people that everyone knew, even if you didn't work with him. He'd been there for years and he was always so cheery. What makes it surreal is that he was just there on Friday and now he'll never be back. Everything was still at his desk, like nothing had changed. I purposely avoided that part of the building because I feel like I wouldn't have been able to quash back the tears. It's going to be a long week. The first time I go back to that office is going to be very strange.

In unrelated news, I'm feeling much better. My nose wasn't nearly as fussy today as it had been all weekend. I have been able to breathe through it for most of the day and only had to resort to blowing it a handful of times. I'll be getting back in to exercising tomorrow. I'll give myself one more day to rest so that I don't overdo it too soon, despite feeling better. Tomorrow I should be good.

I was planning on going out of town this weekend, before my movie marathon on Sunday, but I've changed the plans by making a long overdue appointment on Saturday. It's been 2 1/2 years since I last had my hair cut so it's more than past time to chop it off again. I'll be donating it for the 3rd time since October 2011. I'll be giving about 15-17 inches again. I think it was about 18 inches the first time, 13 inches the second and now this time. Not bad for October 2011 to now. This will be the last time for a while that I'll donate it, however, because I want to maintain it at a reasonable length. At the rate it grows, it'll be the length I want it to be by the end of the year.

Anywho, I think that's all I have for now. I've typed out a sentence and deleted it several times already so yeah, it's time to stop.

Until next time. . .

Sick without being sick
Saturday. 1.9.16 5:15 pm
I woke up this morning feeling quite a bit better than before I went to bed, however, as the day progressed, I started feeling weird again. I can't say I feel sick, because I really don't. This stupid sinus headache/stuffy/runny nose shit is super annoying, though. It affects me just enough that I can't do my normal exercises and wakes me just often enough to not allow me to get a decent amount of sleep. Everything else? Just fine.

I hung out with a friend last night. I told him when I got there how I was feeling, but he didn't seem too worried about getting sick so that made me feel better. If he does get sick, I'll feel bad, so I hope he doesn't. We watched some comedy shows, and the movie Home, while chowing down on some pizza and beer. The food was pretty tasty; I think I helped him find a new pizza place to order from. I ended up just crashing there and came home this morning. I had a feeling that might happen so I was prepared this time and brought a change of clothes. I have a bad habit of hanging out with friends and not being prepared to stay the night, then drink too much to safely drive home and have to end up leaving wearing the same thing I showed up in. I really should just keep a change of clothes in my car. Or just stop drinking. That's a good option too.

My sinus headache is making it challenging to focus on the content of the blog so I suppose I should end it. It's also prohibiting me from comfortably being able to exercise so I have a feeling the gym isn't going to happen tomorrow. Who knows, maybe I'll wake up feeling miraculously better.

Clinical side effects
Thursday. 1.7.16 8:57 pm
I've been working in this new position for a little over a month now so it's only fitting that my immune system starts to go "what the fuck... why'd we go from our cozy, enclosed little space to a clinic full of sickies?" and starts to throw a temper tantrum.

I've had a sinus headache all day. My nose keeps getting stuffy, which is definitely not helping the sinus pressure. I've been downing Airborne since yesterday and I invested in some Tylenol cold and flu to take at bed time {now} to help me sleep. I also got some Puffs w/lotion so that I could blow my nose without it going raw after only a day.

I don't feel sick, just the massive headache, so I'm hoping I've taken enough precautions to keep from actually getting sick. I'll be taking it easy tomorrow in hopes that I can still make it to the gym Saturday. I also have plans tomorrow evening and Sunday so I'd rather not have to reschedule. I hate having to bail on people, even if it's for their own well being.

Anywho, time to kill the lights and lay down. Sleep is just as important in calming a panicking immune system so I'm not gonna skimp on it. I'll probably jack some Sudafed from one of my coworkers tomorrow if the headache hasn't gone anywhere, or take some ibuprofen. We'll see how I feel in the morning.

Shy and awkward
Tuesday. 1.5.16 8:44 pm
I've come to realize the biggest difference between how I can tell if I truly like someone compared to when I'm cool with it being a one-and-done thing. When I actually have an interest in someone, where I want it to be more than just a hook up, I tend to get really shy and awkward around them. Suddenly I'm afraid of being too forward and overstepping boundaries. When I don't want to try for a long term thing, I don't care about being abrasive because I'm not really invested in what happens long term. I'm forward, usually way more than I should be, and not afraid to say exactly what's on my mind. Another indicator that I'm in it for the long run? I blush a lot whenever they're around or when their name is mentioned, and I involuntarily smile. It's ridiculous and annoying at times. . .

Anywho, I really don't have a whole lot to say at the moment. Tomorrow is midweek and I'm glad for that. No big plans for the weekend. I'm hanging out with a friend on Sunday, which is long overdue. I need some Yoda time. No idea what we'll be doing, but I'm gonna make sure it's not something that's super time consuming. With work on Monday, I want to make sure I'm home at a reasonable hour so that I can get sleep. Monday's are hard enough even with a full night's sleep.

I still have to go shopping ... eventually. Perhaps on Friday. Or Thursday. I have a feeling I'm gonna want to just come straight home tomorrow after work. Wednesdays are always a hit or miss with the weirdos.
