Quite the turn around.
Wednesday. 5.27.15 8:01 pm
Shortly after I posted that blog on Monday, things took a turn for the better. A friend that I'd been trying to come get sushi with me for a while finally took me up on my offer ... and then added to it! He suggested we take his motorcycle to the sushi place. Of course I said yes! I've been wanting to get back on to the back of a motorcycle for the better part of a decade; this is just the first time the opportunity has presented itself since.

It was amazing! I was honestly kind of sad once we pulled off the freeway because I knew that meant that we were closing in on our destination and the ride would be over soon, but once we parked, I realized how hungry I was and that sushi was the reason we'd stopped.

The sushi was alright, nothing special, and inexpensive, but it was in good company so that helped. The ride back was just as nice as the ride there and I was sad again once it was over. I'm not sure when it'll happen again, but I'm hoping it's soon. I don't even really care where we go, just as long as it's on the bike.

Getting back in to my car after the ride just didn't feel quite right. I mean, I love my car and I don't plan on giving that thing up for several years to come, but there's just something about being on a motorcycle, out in the elements, wind surrounding you, roar and vibration of the engine below you that you just can't beat. It's such an exhilarating experience!

After sushi we hung out for a bit; I think we both ended up dozing off for a while thanks to the abundance of sushi consumed. After that I headed home. It was a fantastic way to finish off the three day weekend.

Yesterday at work it wasn't as crazy as I thought it would be considering it was the day after a three day weekend, but that didn't make the phones any less annoying. Today it wasn't as bad. I'm hoping the next two days are about the same. I have some work that I need to catch up on and I'd like to do so before the weekend.

This coming weekend I have at least one set plan: on Saturday, I'm helping a friend move. Sunday has tentative plans, but I have a feeling nothing is going to come of it. Which is fine; I'm used to it by now and I know it'll happen eventually. If nothing happens on Sunday, then the only thing I'm doing is laundry.

Here's to hoping the excitement of this past weekend continues to linger over the next few days.

Mini hiatus
Monday. 5.25.15 9:33 am
I haven't been feeling terribly social lately. It's entirely possible that I'm not as okay with my plans being canceled for this weekend as I originally thought I'd be. I did go out Friday night, but that was it.

Saturday I sat right here where I'm sitting now and watched an 8 hour live stream that one of my favorite YouTubers was doing to raise money for the Make a Wish Foundation. It was hilarious and awesome and I enjoyed the fact that I had the time to watch the whole thing, as well as contribute.

Yesterday I was supposed to go to the store to buy groceries... that didn't happen so it has to happen today. Around 3:30 the fire alarm started going off again {I'm just glad it wasn't in the middle of the night, like it has been the last few times it went off and didn't stop} so I got dressed and headed out. I hopped on the freeway with the plan to stop at the store and head back, but I just couldn't bring myself to stop driving.

As I was driving, I was trying to decide between whether I wanted to go all the way or to just stop somewhere along the way and the time of day is what made me decide. I got lost around Bellingham, stopped to use the bathroom, put gas in my car and get my bearings on which direction I was facing. In looking at the map, I saw that there was a small park right on the water, not far from the University, so I aimed myself in that direction and got turned around only once while trying to find my way there.

It was a beautiful little park. I only took a few pictures and stayed for no more than 10 minutes. I was tempted to stay until sunset, but that was still a few hours away and I was getting tired. The hour and a half drive home isn't too bad, but when you're tired it's not fun.

I did stop at the store on my way home, but only bought trash bags {something I was in desperate need of} and headed back. I ended up not going to bed until after 1; apparently I wasn't as tired as I thought.

The only plan for today is to actually go buy groceries. As much as I would like to go the next two weeks without eating, I know I can't.

At least I don't have to work today.

Extended weekend of nothing
Tuesday. 5.19.15 6:07 pm
I know it's only Tuesday, but I already feel like it should be Friday. It turns out the plans I had on Saturday have been postponed again. The friend I was supposed to hang out with forgot she was hanging out with her mom that day and she'd have felt worse bailing on her mom. So now the only plan I still have is to get drinks with a friend after work on Friday.

I was thinking about possibly going out of town over the extended weekend, but in thinking about it, traffic will probably be shit considering it's Memorial Day weekend. I'd rather not be stuck in that, leaving or coming back. So I'll likely end up just staying locked up in my abode, avoiding the warm sun ... I have a lot of cleaning to do so that's definitely a good alternative to sitting in traffic.

If I had someone to go out of town with and enjoy the time being adventurous together, then I'd push for that. But alas, everyone I know already has plans for this weekend so yeah, it'll probably just spend the time cleaning. And sleeping in. Definitely sleeping in.

I'm feeling pretty drained the last couple days so I think I'm gonna aim to go to bed early tonight. I'm not sure why I've been feeling this way; hopefully getting more sleep will help. If not then I just hope it passes soon.

Until next time. . .

I ended up having to do a factory reset on my phone because even after I disabled the sync, it didn't stop. I'm glad I did, though, because I was able to just completely start over from scratch and then only add the things that I wanted to add. Sometimes syncing things up isn't always the best option. Since then, I've only had to charge my phone once. The battery lasts so much longer when it's not trying to import stuff from 2 years ago.

The camera on the thing is awesome! I'm looking so forward to when I get the chance to go take pictures of stuff. It probably won't be this week, but next weekend for sure. I took a few pictures of the cats that I was keeping company over the weekend and I took a shitty picture of a flower just to test the camera on outside objects. The vibrancy of the color was awesome. It's a shitty picture, but the flower came out beautifully. I even braved the bees buzzing around them just to take the picture. The front facing camera is even amazing. It's a wide angle so that makes it much nicer to actually take pictures that way.

My back still itches like crazy. It should be better in the coming days, but for now? Still driving me insane. I'm ready for it to be healed so that I can scratch my back and lay on it again. I don't sleep on my back, and I really have no other reason to need to lay on my back, but it's still something I'd like to have the option of doing.

I got my new phone today. I just activated it about 30 minutes ago so it's updating and syncing everything that it needs to in order for it to be pretty much like the one that I just shut off. There's already a couple features on the new phone that are going to take some getting used to, but that's pretty much with every new piece of technology.

My back is itching like crazy. I will be holding off on posting a finished photo of the tattoo because I want a better picture of it than the one I currently have. The lighting is weird so I'll wait until it's healed and have someone take a picture of the finished product before I post it here. If you'd really like to see it, I have it on Facebook or Instagram.

This entry is appropriately titled because it's been 30 minutes between typing that last sentence and this one. I thought that syncing my text messages was a good idea, but it's retrieving all of them from the beginning of time so it's taking for...ever! and it's draining the hell out of my battery by doing so. I'll probably run the battery down a couple times before I'm finally able to accurately see how long I can go on one charge.

Alright, I need to end this and publish it before I completely forget that it's even a thing. My computer has gone to sleep twice now because I've not been paying attention to it.

Until next time. . .

Something felt different at work today. I'm not sure what exactly, but something felt different. It's entirely possible that it was whatever I was feeling last night that carried over in to today that made me feel off, but something definitely felt different. Though, it's not necessarily a bad different ... just different. I just hate knowing that something is off.

I wanted to go for a long drive last night {this always seems to happen whenever I have to work the next day.} I didn't, because I knew that I needed to get some sleep for work, but I found it kind of amusing that I was using the excuse of "not enough time" as the reason to keep from doing something as reckless as disappearing for a few hours. Going out that close to bed time and driving to Bellingham and back would have been ridiculously reckless. Perhaps next payday...

I'm excited to get my new phone on Friday. At least, that's the estimated delivery date. I called UPS and made sure they put a hold on it at the warehouse so that I could actually get it on Friday, rather than have them try to deliver it and me not be able to pick it up until the next day, or even Monday. That's the only problem with living in a place that doesn't have a leasing office or a way for them to leave boxes at my door. Luckily the warehouse isn't far from my place and traffic shouldn't be bad at all getting down there to pick it up.

The next few days at work should be interesting. We'll be short staffed until at least Friday. Then starting on Monday I'll be switching my main work load. It kind of makes me sad, because I've got a system going for my main stuff now and it works well for me. I'm afraid of it getting messed up by someone else taking over ... it could just be the fact that I hate change, no matter how minor, until I've adjusted and everything is fine again. This change is necessary, but still makes me kind of sad.

Hopefully I can get to a place where I'm on top of the new stuff as I became with the stuff I'm currently doing now. It might take me a few weeks, but it's a way to prove how awesome I am {in a very not conceited way, of course.}

Time to watch more videos. Another blog in a couple days.

Until then. . .
