Noon thirty
Sunday. 12.13.15 12:36 pm
I have no idea why, but it just makes so much more sense to say noon thirty instead of 12:30. Perhaps it's a distinguishing thing? I dunno. Either way, it's a fun way to say it.

My ears are far less sore today than they were yesterday. I still think I'm gonna try to keep these in for one more day before I put in the squishies. I'll have to make sure my hair stays down if any of the managers are around. Earrings this size aren't exactly allowed in my current position. But one more day for the holes to heal should be enough.

Today is a mostly lazy day. I went to the gym this morning and ran my usual distance. One of these days I'll be able to get up to 3 miles in 35 minutes; perhaps once I lose 10 more pounds. I'm still hovering around the same weight I was a month ago, but I've not exactly been super careful with what I've been eating. I need to jump back on the healthy train. Being broke this week does help keep me from buying too much crap.

It's been quite windy this weekend; yesterday was much more wind and rain. Today is just windy. Though I suppose that it's less than yesterday because the tree outside my window isn't smacking in to it today.

Writing the daily blogs makes for the entries to typically be less lengthy, but far less interesting things are written about. Oh well. It's more just to give me something to do rather than entertain you all. If I wanted to write entertaining blogs, I'd probably sign up for a site that would generate revenue.

Until tomorrow. . .

Brain melting complete
Saturday. 12.12.15 3:45 pm
My brain hurts. I was up way too early this morning and stared at a computer screen for far too long. The goal was to get everything completed through til end of June; we completed through the end of March. However, the first two hours were spent doing things manually that we shouldn't have had to do. And we were informed that there would be several changes starting in April, so there was really no point in doing a full build just to have to go back and change it all again anyway.

My brain was melted by the first hour. I mean, once we got all the manual things completed and finally dove in to the full build, it went by a little faster, but still. You're eyes get crossed after repeating the same steps over and over and over. The plus side was that the entire day was overtime; we got to wear whatever we wanted {rather than actual work appropriate attire} and there were snacks provided. So it wasn't a horrible day. Just not how I typically imagine my Saturday going.

My ears are still a bit sore. Going from a 2 to a 0 is a much bigger step than I realized and sleeping on them last night didn't help much. Hopefully tonight won't be as bad.

I ended up not going to the gym because I forgot half the stuff I need: like headphones and running shoes. Even if I'd remembered to bring them, I still probably would have just come home. I'll see how I feel tomorrow when I wake up and may go to the gym then. It kind of depends on my ears.

Until then. . .

While I'm thinking about it
Friday. 12.11.15 9:30 pm
I just set my alarm for tomorrow, before I forget. I'm usually awake fairly early on weekends anyway, but I tend to just lay in bed for an hour before finally deciding to become vertical. Knowing I have to wake to an alarm on my day off is annoying. It's for good reason, and I'm not the only person who has to suffer through it. I actually get to sleep in later than some of the other people who are going to be there simply because I live closer. Plus, it's however many hours of straight up OT so that'll be nice. I just don't like waking up to an alarm. I actually don't know of many people who do. Do you?

I finally put in my new gauges. They're nice and snug in my ears until the skin stretches out. Sleeping tonight should be interesting, but they definitely look cool. I'm weird in the fact that I like the sting from gauging my ears, but this is the final stage that I'll be doing. I'm stopping at a 0 so that when I finally reach the point where I've outgrown wanting to have gauged holes in my ears, they'll still close on their own to a normal size. If I got up to a 00, it's a 50/50 chance that they may not go back down all the way.

Once I'm done with the training, I'll be going over to the other building to use the gym there, because why not. It would be silly to drive past my home just to go to the fitness center I'm used to when I'm already at a facility that has one. Hopefully no one will be there on a Saturday afternoon. I'll also wear my workout stuff to the training so that I have no excuse not to go. It's supposed to go until 3, but it may end early. It also may run late. It all depends on if they have the patterns correct and how quickly everyone works. We'll see how it goes.

Until then. . .

Not Friday ...
Thursday. 12.10.15 5:20 pm
Tomorrow is technically Friday, but because I have the training to do on Saturday, it really doesn't feel like it's Friday. Oh well. There's a holiday party tomorrow for lunch and I will definitely be joining them; I just have to remember to pick up the shrimp cocktail platter before I go in to work. I'll probably get up with my first alarm and leave early just to be sure that I have time beforehand to stop at the store.

Today was much less stressful than yesterday. The changes that came through were minor and my coworkers were able to handle them. I was actually able to get caught up on my work from yesterday so tomorrow will be starting out fresh. Hopefully we don't get slammed with a crazy amount of work right before going in to the weekend...

I'm pretty excited about the fact that I don't have plans on Sunday. With the rest of the month already booked up, it'll be nice to have a lazy day where I don't have to change out of my pajamas. I will have laundry to do, but that kind of is automatically attached to a lazy Sunday. It'll be a good day to catch up on shows that I've fallen quite behind on.

Until tomorrow. . .

Change of pace
Wednesday. 12.9.15 5:20 pm
Day one with access to everything was kind of nuts. There were so many changes that came in first thing this morning on top of the normal work we have to do that I was a little on the frustrated side. I barely got to touch the assigned work that I had for today; I made the tiniest of dents in it. So I'll have that to catch up on tomorrow. Hopefully tomorrow isn't as crazy. Despite the fact that I already know how to do a good portion of the work, I am still new at this and I've yet to form a routine; that tidbit is exactly why I was so stressed out today. Once I get that down, I'll be fine. Or, at the very least, less stressed than today.

This morning before work was interesting. My alarm went off at 6:15. I silenced it, rolled back over to just lay there for 30 more minutes, but I saw this flash of light. Well, that was weird, but whatever. And then another flash, so I turned over and that's when I heard the thunder. I got really excited because we rarely have lightning and thunder. About 2 minutes later, that's when the hail started pelting my windows ... I was super glad that my alarm woke me up before that happened. The noise coming from that probably woke most people up. It stopped just as quickly as it started and all occurred within about 20 minutes. It had completely stopped raining by the time I left for work.

I would love to have that happen more often {maybe minus the hail} but this place is too wet all the time to have the static in the air required for lightning. Oh well. It was nice to be awake for the brief storm.

It's been decided that the only plan I have for this weekend is the training on Saturday. I'm okay with that, though. I was hoping to get together with my friend for a repeat weekend, but he's already busy. Kinda bummed, but this gives me an excuse to stay home in my pajamas.

Until tomorrow. . .

It's about damn time
Tuesday. 12.8.15 5:27 pm
Two weeks after the original request was put in, I finally, finally, have the access that I need to actually do my whole job. It took way too many people today to finally figure out why the two programs weren't connecting and by the time it was fixed, it was less than an hour before I went home. So tomorrow, as long as it's still working, I should be able to actually do the base part of what my new position actually is. Ugh.

Anywho, not a whole lot to update other than that. I did actually drag my ass out of bed with my first alarm this morning so that I could wash my hair before going in to work. As soon as the rice I have on the stove is finished cooking, I'll be taking another shower to wash it again and then putting on pj's before getting cozy with YouTube. I have a little bit of catching up to do, but I may reserve that for the weekend.

As of right now, the only plan I have is the training on Saturday morning. I was going to try to make plans for Sunday, but I have a feeling it's not going to work out. I'd really like it to so fingers crossed. I'm okay still being behind on some videos.

Alright, I think the rice only has a couple more minutes. This was just a quick update on the status of access for work.

Until tomorrow. . .
