Today was the winter solstice and I didn't even realize it until almost the end of the work day, when someone said something about it. It was cloudy and rainy for most of the day anyway, so I didn't really even notice that it was the least amount of daylight for the year. Though, this morning when I left for work, I did have a passing thought about how it was darker than normal for that time of day. Either way, this just means that the days are going to slowly start increasing the amount of daylight and it makes me a little sad inside. The significant changes won't happen until the time goes back again, but still. I love this time of year.

This week and next week are "short" weeks, with the holidays both being on Friday. It means that we get two three-day weekends in a row, which is awesome. Then there's a three-day weekend next month and a three-day weekend in February. I'm definitely looking forward to having all of those. It's nice when the holidays fall on a Friday or Monday so that we can have short weeks and extended weekends.

I titled the entry as such because I wasn't intending on writing very much, and it turned in to an entry about short things. Completely unintentional, but amusing. Since I haven't anything else to write about, I shall end this here.

Until tomorrow. . .

Decisions were made
Sunday. 12.20.15 6:11 pm
Between yesterday and today, I spent way more money that I was planning on spending ... but after having been broke for as long as I've been, I needed to pamper myself a little. And pamper I did, but only within reason, since bills still had to be paid. It just means that Christmas gifts will have to be sent out next year.

Yesterday I went to the gym in the morning, like I usually try for on Saturdays. I ran just a little bit harder than I normally do; I was frustrated about a certain lack of response from some texts. So the frustration helped me out in that aspect. After the gym, I was supposed to go to the mall to get myself some new earrings, but I just couldn't motivate myself to go back out right then. I wasn't feeling very well anyway, so I just stayed home until it was time to meet up with my friend.

We met up Downtown at this restaurant called Palomino; it's a pretty chill Italian place. The food was good and there was a lot of it so I have left overs. Afterwards, we dropped the food off at my car and walked back to the Sheraton so that I could see the Star Wars themed gingerbread display. The line was massive, though, so my friend ended up just hanging out outside. It got really warm in there because of all the bodies, but the pictures I was able to get made the wait worth it.

After that we headed back up the hill to where her car was. We met up with another friend for just a brief bit while she was on her lunch break. She wanted us to hang around until 11: 30 when she got off work so that we could go out for drinks, but the other friend still wasn't feeling well so she went home. I told her that I'd think about it and let her know once it got closer. I ended up going back out and we got a few drinks before heading back home. It had been over a year since we'd gotten to hang out so it was really nice being able to catch up. The three of us made plans to hang out next Saturday so I'm looking forward to that.

Today, I met up with another friend to get our nails done and then to go on adventures. I got red and green on my fingernails, and blue and silver on my toes. So I'm rocking holiday themed nails. It's weird having my fingernails painted; I'm used to only having my toes done, but they're pretty so I'm happy with them. After the nails, she was okay with coming with me to brave the mall so that I could get my earrings and we made the decision to eat lunch at P.F. Chang's. It's been years since I've eaten there and I also have left overs from that too.

Once the food was consumed, we walked to the other side of the mall, got me some new earrings and then headed back to the car. We drove from up north to out east, where we stopped at Nothing Bundt Cakes to get more goodies for ourselves and the work potluck this week. We also made a stop at Dairy Queen so that she could pick up a birthday cake for one of her friends.

Now that I'm home, I'm exhausted again so I'll probably be going to bed shortly after my laundry is finished. Hopefully this week is slow at work because I'd like to have an easy week. I already know there are more changes coming in and I'd like to not have patients interrupting me while trying to get everything done.

Until tomorrow. . .

Oops, I did it again
Saturday. 12.19.15 11:22 am
I definitely intended on writing up an entry yesterday and the day before, but due to last minute plans, I was not able to keep up on the challenge.

Thursday morning, a friend of mine text me asking if I wanted to go see Star Wars that evening with him and another friend. Of course I said yes! You don't say no to an offer like that. He then told me that I should bring a friend since there was, in fact, two extra tickets. I invited the first person I could think of who would appreciate it the most, who hadn't already bought tickets, but he declined due to ongoing ailments. A legit reason to say no to such an offer. The second friend I asked was more than willing to go. She and I agreed that our night suddenly got infinitely better. So much so that I suddenly didn't care as much about all the work I still had to deal with.

The movie, in short, was amazing. Originally I wasn't planning on seeing it until next year, once the crowds died down, but I'm so glad that I got to see it opening night. We got let in to the theatre an hour before the start of the movie. It was still rolling the final credits from the movie that had just ended. The group of people that I ended up being a part of took up the entire first row. Not the front row, but the first row up the stairs. I thought it would just be the 4 of us, but it ended up being about 13 people total. I knew almost everyone that was there, and oddly all from one department at work.

One of the guys there invited me out for drinks after the movie so I said sure, why not. The next day was Friday so I would be able to come home and crash without worrying about it messing up my sleep for work. After the movie, however, he was nowhere to be seen. So I asked one of the people I knew had his number, to give him mine and let him know I was sorry for having missed him. I dropped my friend off at another friend's house, where her car was, and as I was leaving, got a phone call from the guy. I told him I didn't know where the place was we were going and when he told me, I went back to meet him. I only had one drink since I had to drive, but it was nice actually getting to hang out with him outside of work.

Because of the spontaneous meet up, I didn't get home until around 1 and finally fell asleep a little after 2. My alarm was set for 6:15. So yesterday was a bit of a long day. Around lunchtime, my head started pounding. I took some ibuprofen and a few hours later, my head started pounding again. About an hour before end of shift, I suddenly because exhausted so the plan was to come home and crash. Which is exactly what ended up happening. I was asleep before 6 last night. I slept until around 10, then was back asleep shortly after 11. I clearly needed the sleep.

Today I have lunch/dinner plans and then tomorrow I'm going to get a mani/pedi with the friend I invited to the movies. So the remainder of this weekend will be fairly busy. I also have to go to the mall at some point and get new earrings; my ears are still not healing at a rate I want them to so I need something in there that I can turn with ease. I also need to buy gifts for my family for Christmas. I have an idea as to what to get everyone, but I need to make sure I stay in budget. I finally am caught up on all my bills and things that I owed money to from my vacation, but I'd like to still have some extra. We'll see how the rest of this weekend goes.

Until {maybe} tomorrow. . .

I've decided that this every day thing will just be this month. It's only halfway through the month and I already kind of don't want to write every day. Since I already challenged myself to do so {and already missed a day} I figured the least that could happen is that I finish out the month.

Nothing terribly exciting is happening at the current moment. My hair is really starting to get on my nerves so I'll be getting it chopped off in about a month. I've had to keep it down all this week, which is slightly more irritating than I realized. I may just throw it up on Friday and if one of the managers says anything to me, then so be it. I'll just be getting new plugs on Friday after work anyway.

This weekend won't nearly be as packed with excitement as I'd previously thought, which is perfectly fine with me. That actually gives me enough time to type up a blog each day. And watch some videos that I'm falling ridiculously behind on.

Until tomorrow. . .

Additional brain melting
Tuesday. 12.15.15 9:45 pm
Since we hadn't gotten the full build completed on Saturday, the three of us agreed to work overtime this week in order to get it finished. The main templater stayed over last night to work on all of April and half of May. The three of us stayed over tonight so that we could finish the other half of May and all of June. We got about 3 hours of OT for today. It was much simpler than the build we did on Saturday because all the complicated changes had occurred during the December and January builds so that was a nice thing to avoid.

However, it's still brain melting.

I just tried to put the squishies in and my ear started bleeding again, so that was fun. I will not be trying that again until Sunday. The holes have taken so I can move the earrings around easier and sleep on them more comfortably, but I can't put the silicone in without issue so I'm going to give it the rest of this week and the weekend to let them fully heal before I try punishing them again. Which is fine; just means I still have to be careful when the managers are around. It's really no more difficult to hide those than it is to make sure no one sees that I have a tongue bar.

Anywho, tomorrow is Wednesday; I'm hoping it's a slower day than today. Being short staffed didn't help the fact that today was a busier than normal day. Fingers crossed.

Until then. . .

I'm gonna give it one more day for my ears to heal before I try to put the squishies in again. I tried yesterday, but I think that's why one of my ears started bleeding... so that was fun. I was careful today whenever a manager would come around to make sure my hair was covering my ears. I need to clean them as soon as I'm done typing this up.

It's kinda crazy that next Friday is Christmas. It's close, but still feels pretty far away. I'm excited to spend the time with my friend and her family. I'm actually mostly excited about the fact that it's a 3 day weekend. I have absolutely no plans for New Year's Eve, something I'm also quite excited about. I think this year, I'd rather just stay home and watch the live stream in the comfort of my pajamas.

There might be the chance at some overtime this week so that we can finish the build. We're all kind of waiting on the manager's approval for it; I've already told her I'm okay with any day except Friday. So at this point I'd only be looking at a few hours of OT. Hey, better than none and it would be on the first check of the New Year, so that'll be nice. We'll see what happens.

Until tomorrow. . .
