Poor life choices
Sunday. 3.29.15 6:07 pm
After going out last night and not making it home until just after 4 this morning, I'm definitely not going out again tonight. Which means it's a good thing that the two friends I made plans with are ignoring my texts.

When you have drinks, you want to stick to the same types of alcohol throughout the night, otherwise your system doesn't agree with the concoction suddenly mixing in your stomach and it will eventually expel it. That happened for me around 8 this morning. I only had 5 drinks, but my stomach was next to empty {I only had a zucchini appetizer, some fries and a mint chocolate cake} and I was drinking different kinds of alcohol, none of which really mixed.

I'm not sure why I keep doing this to myself, but it's definitely not something to repeat again any time soon. I'll most likely end up going to bed early tonight. I'll be taking my contacts out here in the next couple hours and will be going to bed shortly after.

Despite the shitty hangover this morning, I did have a good time. The end of the night/morning was a little weird, but whatever. I guess it's too much to ask for something to go smoothly for the entire duration. There has to be weirdness in there somewhere.

Today I went for a walk around Greenlake with some friends and the pup. My hip started to protest about a quarter of the way around the lake, but I powered through it. The joys of having been born with hip problems. . . it always acts up at the most inconvenient of times.

Anywho, here's to hoping I get better sleep tonight than I did this morning.

"Texture"
Friday. 3.27.15 10:52 pm
Due to the skin condition that I have that causes things to stay imprinted on my skin for elongated periods of time, my friend told me that I have "texture." It's not as rare as some people originally thought, but it does take a while for the impressions to go away and my skin to return to normal. Even just 5 minutes of having something pressed in to my skin leaves a mark for longer than the time it took to form.

This was brought up due to the new sandals that I have where the straps dig in to my skin and leave an impression. They're actually quite comfortable, despite not looking it from the end result. I do need to break them in, though I'm not sure when I'll have the chance to wear them again. They're not ideal for rainy weather, which is what's in the forecast the next few days. Perhaps sometime next week it'll be dry enough that I can wear them to work.

I wanted to go do something this even, but I hadn't made any prior plans so when my friend text me asking if I wanted to meet up with them, I said sure. I'm not usually one to make spur of the moment plans, but this was kind of the thing that I was looking for. I met up with them in Pioneer Square and we had drinks and snacked on some appetizers. The atmosphere was nice and the live jazz music was loud. The ringing in my ears has stopped so we must not have been there long enough. The three of them had to work in the morning, so we weren't able to stay out much later than we did.

I'm looking so forward to being able to sleep in tomorrow morning. I don't have any plans tomorrow, but that's okay. I need a day to do laundry and it looks like tomorrow will be it. I also really should go grocery shopping so depending on how I feel, I may do that. It's entirely possible that I'll just end up staying in the whole day.

Sunday I'm meeting up with the same friend from tonight; we're going to take the pup for a walk around Greenlake. Then I'm supposed to meet up with another friend Sunday evening for drinks. No idea where we'll go, but I'm sure we'll figure that out when the time comes.

It can't just be me
Wednesday. 3.25.15 8:02 pm
When you meet someone new, you find out things about this person. Over time you either get to know them really well or they just become a stray memory that passes through every once in a while, when one of those things you've found out makes itself known and the memory is triggered.

I know that when you're younger and you meet someone, you find out that they have the same favorite {whatever} as you or their birthday is close to yours or they know someone that you know and suddenly you feel like it was meant to be. You start way over thinking how things are supposed to go from then on and you see a future that definitely has this person in it.

As an adult, I'd like to think that this process is different. You meet someone and find out that they have similar interests which means that you have something to actually talk about, and then that's it; no other thoughts involved. Instead, you find out something about them and you feel that same giddiness as you did when you were younger, except now you know that it really is purely coincidental, because it's not like they're the only other person on the planet who happens to have an October birthday or likes sushi as much as you. Or when you learn about someone's past and then suddenly a German flag appears in your daily life that wasn't there before. All of these things are pure coincidence and mean absolutely nothing, but your mind isn't wired to think that way.

I'm trying to train my brain not to over think coincidences and it's working to a very small extent. I've tried to ask the question "why" less and just go with the flow of things. It's clearly supposed to be happening this way, in this moment, or it would be going differently. And whatever is happening now is happening so that something else can happen in the future.

It's my current personal challenge. I really hope I can stick with it for a good while.

Slow, deep breaths.
Monday. 3.23.15 9:26 pm
This is going to be very short. I almost didn't write anything today, but I felt like I should.

I'm trying to be okay with not being in the middle of a chase. I wave the flag and then start running. For a little bit I have some company, but after a while I'm so far ahead of everyone that it's just not fun anymore. So I start to slow down in hopes that they'll catch up. When that doesn't happen, or I realize that they've turned back, I get frustrated and upset; afraid that I've gone too far and that there's no going back.

I know none of you will understand that reference, and several months/years from now, I probably won't either, but that's not the point. It works for me at the moment and that's all that matters. I have to keep reminding myself to breathe, pace myself. Slow and steady wins the race, right? Maybe if I just keep jogging along at a steady pace, someone will come on to my path. Perhaps I'll have a few others cross it and continue on their way. Perhaps others will come running back because they got too far ahead of me to even realize. But one day, I'll have that perfect competition. I just have to keep breathing.

Food a plenty
Saturday. 3.21.15 5:33 pm
When you go to Buffalo Wild Wings, you must get an appetizer to share, at least one drink and of course, wings. I've been craving spicy food all week so what did I do? I got hot wings. It's toward the bottom of the spice level bottle illustration that they have in the menu and it's the only one that I really like out of the other options that are between that and medium. I may, one day, venture on to a hotter sauce, but for now I'll stick with hot.

Considering how much I don't care for sports and how BWW is very much a sports bar, I really do enjoy going there. Even when there's a game and people are yelling and screaming, the food is worth it and the company typically is as well. Apparently there's a BWW Downtown, which I was previously unaware of, but my friend lives south and it's easier for me to just drive down there than for her to bus/train up here.

Now that I've gone out and had a good time, I'm in for the remainder of the weekend. I need to do laundry tomorrow, but that's about it. I finally have more contacts so that's the only thing keeping me from taking a food coma nap right now. I don't like to waste them, since they're higher up on the price scale, so when I put them in in the morning, I make the sacrifice to not nap that day. Tomorrow, especially since I'm staying in, I'll just throw my glasses on in the morning. Even if I don't nap, I'll still have the option of doing so.

I received an invitation to one of my cousin's wedding. I'm going to put in for the time off, but there's no guarantees that I'll be able to get it so I'll RSVP with a maybe. I'd really like to go. I haven't seen most of my extended family in over a decade. I think it'd be fun to hang out with them for a weekend. I'll ask my manager when I see her on Monday. I'll put in for the time, explain why, but say that it's perfectly cool if I can't.

Anywho, time to dive in to Netflix and Hulu. Here's to a relaxing remainder of the weekend.

Home remedies
Thursday. 3.19.15 6:25 pm
There are varying opinions when it comes to home remedies. Some people swear by them, while others are skeptical of everything. I'm one of those people who is willing to try home remedies, if it means getting to skip going to the doctor and/or spending ridiculous amounts of money on medications. Home remedies have been a hit or miss for me. Hot tea with honey or lemon does nothing for a sore throat for me, even when I get past the disgusting flavor. There has been one remedy, however, that I've recently discovered that I'm going to resort back to as many times as needed: vanilla extract for cold sores.

I was somewhat skeptical at first, but I figured the worst that would happen is that it takes a week or more, like normal, for the stupid thing to heal. I tried it as directed and it's working! After only doing this treatment for 2 1/2 days, the sore is nearly gone! I'm also using Blistex at night and during the day to help keep it hydrated. So I'm thinking that the combination of the two is what's making it heal so quickly. I'm also avoiding, despite my annoyance, eating spicy foods, as those tend to irritate the affected area. Once this thing has healed, I'm going to eat so much spicy food!

I had an entry planned for St. Paddy's day, but I lost the motivation halfway through the entry and ended up scrapping what little I had already written. Nothing special has happened this week. I've actually been in kind of a down mood. I've been physically drained most of the week and haven't been terribly social. I only texted 4 people yesterday, two of which were family. The urge to communicate isn't really there this week. Hopefully it's a funk that I'll be able to get out of by next week. I plan on staying in this weekend. Well, I've made one tentative plan, but if it falls through, I'm going to be perfectly okay with it.
