Well, hello there.

Every other day
Thursday. 4.9.15 8:43 pm
This pattern I have going of writing something every other day has it's definite advantages. I usually have something to write about when it comes time to write again and it makes it so that there's time for people {whoever you are, hi!!!} to read the entry before it gets lost to the next one.

The one disadvantage that I've noticed is that sometimes the odd dates fall on days when I have plans and I struggle whether to write before I do anything or wait and hope that I'm back near a computer in order to write something before the time changes to the next day. That issue is going to come up on Saturday. I'll likely write something early in the morning and then on Monday update on whatever did or didn't happen. Then again, if I risk it and don't write anything I may end up getting involved in some awesome shenanigans that would keep me out, having fun, past midnight. Who knows. I guess we'll find out when the time comes.

Tomorrow is Friday and I'm so glad it is. It's also payday, but I'm going to be careful on the money I spend this weekend because I'd like to still have some money in my savings after I pay for the tattoo. I get paid again the Friday before the tattoo appointment, but that's the rent check so I have to be cautious when spending. It should be easy enough. I do need to buy some toiletries this weekend, for sure. I'm running low on a lot of stuff. Although, with the plans I have for this weekend, I haven't a clue when I'm supposed to go to the store.

I'll be up for a bit tonight because I opted to take a shower at like, quarter til 8, which means that my hair will be wet until closer to 11. Oh well. I can go to bed early tomorrow night without having to worry about whether I wake up in the middle of the night or not getting enough sleep for work the next day.

Time to dive in to some shows to kill time while I wait for my hair to dry. Until next time!

Same thing, multiple memories
Tuesday. 4.7.15 7:44 pm
There's a movie that I have seen twice, a huge blockbuster hit, that I've watched in the company of two individuals; with one in the theater, the other at home on DVD. Both times have created very distinct memories so whenever I hear the title of the movie, or a song from the soundtrack, I instantly think of both memories. The part that intrigues me, is usually when you have this type of situation, one memory is good, while the other not so much. This isn't one of those situations. Both memories are good so it's strange to have such distinct ones tied to the same movie.

Anywho, after last weekend going exactly as planned, with nothing happening, I'm very ready for this coming weekend. I have plans Saturday and Sunday and I'm trying to figure out if I want to do something Friday night. I guess it'll see how the day goes. I may end up just coming home and going to bed early.

I'm supposed to be meeting up with a friend after work tomorrow; not sure exactly where we're going. He suggested coffee ... which doesn't exactly help narrow it down here. Oh well. It should be fun either way. I don't drink coffee, but luckily coffee shops offer more than just coffee. Or ... I may actually get coffee so that I can knock out comfortably for the night... hmm.

I'll likely be going to bed early tonight. My hair has probably another hour before it's completely dry and by then my phone will likely be dead so I can plug it in and crash.

Yep, life is kind of just moving along at the moment. I heard from someone, out of the blue, this morning. I haven't talked to this individual in a couple months and we didn't exactly end on the greatest terms so I was quite surprised to wake up to a text from them. All it was was them asking how my new job has been and if it was better than my security job. I responded and haven't heard back since. Such a weirdly random thing to happen. Either way, I'm not thinking anything of it beyond what's being typed up here. I am curious to see if I ever get a response. If not, oh well. I stopped initiating conversation with them back then and this is definitely not the time to start up again.

I think that's it... here's to tomorrow going well!

Easter Sunday
Sunday. 4.5.15 7:14 pm
About the only things I did to "celebrate" the day was sleep in, do laundry, shower and enjoy Reeses eggs. I also ate regular food, but I've been snacking on the mini eggs off and on all day. I wished a few people happy Easter, but otherwise, the weekend has been exactly as I intended: spent inside, in pajamas, relaxing.

I needed a weekend where I just spent the whole time indoors. Before, back when I was still in security, I'd have loved to be out and about as much as I am now. But the tables have turned and I've yet to have a weekend where the entire time was spent inside my little pod. I honestly think the last time I spent the whole weekend completely indoors was back before I quit security. Even on the weekends when I did mostly nothing, there was still tines when I got dressed and ventured out of my room. This time, however, I only opened my door this morning to do laundry. Otherwise, I've enjoyed the weather through the open windows.

Tomorrow is back to work and I'm already looking forward to the end of the week. It's going to be another week where we're super short staffed and there will probably be at least one day this week where I'll be by myself for the entire day. All 13 departments will be my responsibility and I have a feeling it'll be a shit show. It's probably a good thing that I don't get paid until Friday, otherwise I'd likely spend money unnecessarily on alcohol.

Anywho, time to settle in to a movie before calling it a night. I haven't the slightest idea what I'll watch, but that's the fun thing about Netflix ... lots to choose from.

Contacts, the visual kind.
Friday. 4.3.15 9:28 pm
Today was a contacts type of day. I thought about it before I went to bed last night, figuring that I would be going out after work, that I should probably wear contacts. I've only wore them twice before to work and my eyes are usually pretty tired by the end of the day, mostly from having to stare at a computer screen for the majority of the shift. I do have a window to look out, and I can look at my coworkers or go outside on my breaks, but still. 8 hours at a computer screen is rough on the eyes, even when you don't have a lens covering them.

I actually ended up not going out after work. I was thinking about bailing anyway and when a few other people asked if it was still on, I said okay, because there would still be a few people. But then the vote became unanimous that we should postpone it to payday. I secretly rejoiced inside my head.

After deciding that I wanted a weekend to myself, and feeling quite a bit out of it the last few days from the long week it's been, I backed out of the invite for the party I was supposed to go to tomorrow night. I appreciate the fact that they thought of me to come join them, since I don't work with them, but I'm just not feeling social this weekend. I've had a headache all day ... which hasn't helped me feel any better.

Sleep is what's on the agenda for the weekend. I have an alarm set to wake up to see if I might be able to see the blood moon early in the morning, but if it's cloudy I'm just gonna go right back to sleep. If it's not, I'm gonna go outside and hopefully get some kind of pictures of it. Secretly {or not so secretly, since I'm typing it out here} I kind of want it to be cloudy so that I have an excuse to not go outside. But he last time I remember seeing a blood moon was in 2007, at 4am, and I was miserable. I'd like to have a better memory of the experience.

I stopped at the store before heading home from work, bought groceries to get me through the remainder of the week until payday, which left me with all of a dollar and change til then. Oh well. It just means that the plans that I had to go out of town will have to wait. I don't want to use up the gas if I don't have the back up money to fill it if I drive farther than anticipated.

Not next weekend, but perhaps the weekend after I'll go on my little solo adventure. We'll see how things look. If next week is going to be anything like how I think it might be, I'm definitely going to need to go for that drive shortly after.

Beautifully chaotic
Wednesday. 4.1.15 8:27 pm
I wasn't sure what I was going to have to write about for today, since I just wrote yesterday, but alas, thanks to sporadic weather patterns I have at least something.

All day today the clouds kept hinting at a downpour and all the weather reporting outlets indicated thunderstorms. The sun shone for most of the day, with a few periods of cloud coverage. It stayed dry the whole day. At least, in my part of the neighborhood it did. A friend of mine talked about how it was pouring where he was at, all of 10 miles south from me. Another friend talked about dark skies and heavy rain in another section of town, also south from me. Someone else commented on lightning and thunder southwest from my location. So it appeared that the storm would be sticking around down there. When I left work and it was still sunny out, with blue skies and fluffy white clouds, I resigned to knowing that I wouldn't get to experience the crazy weather that I miss so dearly from the east coast.

That is, until about 30 minutes ago. I bright flash of light shone through my blinds and a crack of thunder followed about 5 seconds later. I shut off my light and waited, another flash of light and a faster crack of thunder. Finally, a third followed with an immediate crack of thunder. The storm was right on top of me! I text a few people with my excitement and sat there just as giddy and mesmerized as I was when I was a small child. I've been in love with thunderstorms for as long as I can remember and that will never change. It moved on, leaving behind a pretty amazing night sky and a soaked ground, but I'm glad I didn't get to miss out on it.

In other news, I have 4 weeks to find someone who is off on a Tuesday afternoon, who can take nice pictures and is willing to hang out for a few hours. I've asked two people in hopes that at least one of them would be able to come with me. I even tried to use food as leverage, but it was a no go. The other person I knew couldn't, but I asked just for shits and giggles. My consult for the artwork is a week from Saturday and I'm pretty excited about just that. I hope I can find someone between now and then that will be able to come with me.

It kind of feels like tomorrow should be Friday, but I have to remind myself that I'm not on the security schedule anymore so it's what a coworker likes to call "Friday eve." It's actually the first time in a couple months that I've felt this way. Maybe because Monday was stupid busy and I was already done with the week then. Either way ... It's almost Friday.

Selective avoidance
Tuesday. 3.31.15 7:42 pm
I'm kind of dropping off the grid, without actually dropping off the grid. It's come time to cut the people from my life that aren't doing me any good. The individuals who are more annoying to me than my time is worth. I'm tired of putting out the effort to hang out with people and then being bailed on, so I'm done trying. They know that I want to do things with them so they can contact me if/when they're ready. If they don't, then oh well. It wasn't meant to be.

That being said, I'm trying very hard to not completely cut everyone out of my life. It's moments like these when I want to just stop talking to everyone because I get annoyed and feel like I'm not much company. Until I'm able to get past it and stop being annoyed, I feel like I'd just alienate even more people, unnecessarily. I have a select few individuals that I'm perfectly okay still talking to. I'm also not removing myself from Facebook or Instagram or Twitter in an effort to keep up with doing what I want, regardless of the people around me. It seems to be working so far.

Depending on how much money I spend on Friday {if I even meet up with the few coworkers that are going out} I may just take a drive somewhere. I need to get out of the city and if I have to do it alone, then so be it. I have a couple places that I'd like to visit, but I'd have to make sure that I have enough money to put gas in my car, if needed. That's what would determine how far I go or if I'm even able to go. I should know by Friday evening.

Hopefully the next few days goes more smoothly than yesterday. I'd like to go for a drive to enjoy my time, not to blow off steam.
