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.

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.

It does what it wants
Wednesday. 1.27.16 8:01 pm
My hair ... I mean, I kind of let it do what it wanted when it was long, but I just kind of go with it now that it's short. I try to make it look nice, by making it look messy. Does that make sense? Take this morning, for example. I ran a brush through it, then took part of the left side and flipped it over my part to the right side and just left it that way. To me, it looks a mess. To everyone else who saw me today, and actually said something, felt it looked cute. Who the hell knows. If it's dirty, I pull it back and contain it. When it's clean, I just let it do what it wants.

I also wore my glasses today. After having worn contacts for the last three days, my eyes were feeling it last night. I kind of wanted to wear contacts again today, but after the left one almost got stuck in my eye last night when I was trying to take it out, I figured it would probably be smart to let my eyes rest for a day. I like going back and forth between wearing them each for a few days and then switching. It kind of still allows me to look like a different person that people can't recognize right away.

My coworker who'd been out sick the last two days {is it really only Wednesday?} was back today. She still wasn't feeling it, but I'm glad she was back. My body still woke me up several times this morning, afraid I'd missed a text asking me to go in early, but it was nice being able to stay in bed until my normal time. Hopefully tomorrow I'll be able to sleep until my alarm goes off.

No set plans yet for this weekend. I have Friday plans, but that's about it. Depending on how much I drink Friday night will determine whether I go to the gym Saturday or Sunday morning. It's a payday weekend, but it's the rent check so I'm limited on what I can do. I also need to make sure that I start to save money for my mini trip in May. Perhaps, if the weather allows, I'll go out picture taking. Rain and cell phones don't mix well.

Interesting ...
Monday. 1.25.16 8:08 pm
When I was talking to a friend yesterday about how I felt like today would be interesting, I had no idea it would start at 5:30am.

For whatever reason, I was awake at that hour, which ended up being lucky. My coworker text me saying that she had been sick all weekend and wouldn't be able to make it in today, so it would probably be best that I go in to open. Since none of the managers come in until 7, and the first set of patients starts to check in at quarter after, that's not nearly enough time to find coverage. When I took the position, I told her that I'd be fine with it, since I live so close, but this is the first time I've had to go in at 7. It's only 45 minutes earlier than I normally get there, but I felt like I'd lost so much sleep. I even just reset my alarm to 6 instead of 6:15 and dozed for another 30 minutes before I had to get up, but that didn't seem to make a difference.

We did end up getting coverage about an hour in to what would be my normal shift, so around 8:30, 8:45, but still. It was kind of a weird day. We had several people show up thinking their appointment was that day, but it wasn't. One person was off by 3 months. And then they get pissed at us... like, dude. I just check you in. I had nothing to do with you setting up this appointment. Then the program that we use to check people in crashed a few times, which messed up two patients being checked in. Luckily the docs understood and were still able to see them, but still. One person got so pissed off, I thought he was just going to leave. Like, yes dude. I came in to work today just to make your life a living hell. Fuck off.

Today was the first day since I've gotten my hair chopped that I wore contacts to work; I wore them yesterday and after a couple days of wearing them, I kind of forget that I have them in. Until my left eye starts giving me issues ... I'll probably wear them again tomorrow. It throws people off because I usually don't wear contacts to work. Staring at the computer makes my eyes super tired quite easily so I usually just wear my glasses, but with this new position, there's a lot more looking away from the screen so I'm testing out wearing them more often. It's kind of funny that I can still confuse people despite the fact that it's been over a year since I quit the security job. I'd think that people wouldn't have trouble realizing it's me anymore. It was fun when I'd be my own disguise so it's nice to know that I still kind of have that.

My coworker told me she should be well enough to go in tomorrow, but I told her to text me again if she needed me to open. As much as I like the little bit of OT, I also very much like to sleep in. I'll probably take my contacts out here within the hour and call it a fairly early night. Fingers crossed tomorrow goes more smoothly than today.

I gotta admit, though, the end of the day was better than I expected. Being forward and open about things does pay off sometimes.

All the bacon!
Saturday. 1.23.16 2:09 pm
So my friend/coworker made homemade bacon a couple weeks ago and I'd been keeping it in my freezer to save for a weekend when I didn't have to go anywhere. Well, that weekend has arrived. I took it out of the freezer last night and put in the fridge to thaw. This morning, when I finally dragged my ass out of bed, I fixed half the bacon {so 5 pieces} and I ate all of them. My stomach hates me now, but I have no regrets. Bacon is delicious. Especially the homemade kind. I'll fix the other 4 probably tomorrow... after I get back from the gym.

Today is definitely one of those days where you just want to curl up with a good book and sip on hot cocoa. However, since I don't have the hot cocoa or a new book that I haven't read yet, I'm opting for catching up on Hulu shows and taking a nap. The nap will happen once I'm done typing this up.

The only plan for tomorrow that involves leaving the house is to go to the gym. Otherwise, I'll be hanging out inside again. I have laundry to do as well, but you guys probably know that by now. I'm definitely thankful for the lazy weekend. Something tells me next weekend will be busy so I'm taking full advantage of not having to get dressed. Pajamas the whole time {except to the gym.}

Anywho, I keep getting distracted so it's time to shut the brain off for a little bit.

Until next time. . .

Mercury is in retrograde
Thursday. 1.21.16 7:57 pm
Every time something has been out of place, for the last week or so, our RN keeps saying that Mercury is in retrograde. I know that it has to do with astrology, but I have no idea what that means. Considering she only says it when shit hits the fan, I'm gonna make the assumption that that's what that means.

Today, today was one of those days. Shit hit the fan before it was even 9. It's not fun when we have to make schedule changes. It's even less so when we have to make same day changes and then have to call the patients and tell them that they can't come in today, despite the fact that they'd been waiting for two months, and because of the way the schedules work, they now have to wait another two months. I mean, there's some finagling that we can do, but when you're looking at the volume of people that we've had to reschedule just this week, there's only so much we can do before it just isn't possible to work around restrictions anymore.

My brain hurt by lunch and I was just done by the end of the day. I fully plan on crashing for the night when I'm done typing this up, even though it's barely 8.

No plans for this weekend and I'm happy about it. Depending on the weather, I may go exploring and take some pictures. Or I might just stay in the whole weekend and not change out of pajamas. We'll see what the weather does and how I feel. I'm just glad that tomorrow is Friday. Hopefully it ends better than the entire rest of this week went.
