Responsible adult
Sunday. 3.15.15 10:00 am
Being an adult has its perks, for sure. You get to sleep in on the weekends and not have anyone bug you to get out of bed {if you live alone, that is.} You can eat ice cream and cookies for breakfast, if you so please. You can go out on a work night and stay out late because you've already weighed out whether the reward was high enough to deal with the consequences in the morning.

On the other hand, you have to make sure that you have food in your house, otherwise you'll be spending the money on delivery or take out, which adds up really quickly. You have to make sure your bills are paid on time so that you can continue taking hot showers, have a roof over your head and internet access. You have to make sure that you get yourself to work on time and if you ride share, you have a responsibility to others as well.

Another part of being a responsible adult is knowing when to stop drinking. There are plenty of safe options to get home without getting behind the wheel, but I'm so paranoid about leaving my car in a parking lot that I've been irresponsible and driven home while under the influence. I'm certainly not proud of that decision, but it's one that I'm working on not making again. The last two nights I went out for drinks and I was able to stop myself from getting more, despite wanting more, so that I'd be able to safely drive home. This is when carpooling has major advantages, so long as you're not the DD.

Despite only having 3 drinks on Friday night and two last night, I managed to have quite the fun time. Both nights started out simple enough: meet up with a friend to have a good time. Friday night simply added more people and became a little crazier until a couple people had to work and the others were tired from having worked all day so we parted ways. Last night there was an unexpected guest that joined so it just happened to make it more fun. That particular situation might turn in to some kind of redemption opportunity for me so I'm cautiously optimistic about how it may end up.

Today I'm going to hang out with my newly engaged friend. She wants to go look at some bridal stuff and invited me to go with her. We're also gonna make a couple other stops while in the area so it should be a nice day. It's rainy outside today, perfect Seattle weather, so I'm happy to be going out in it. I do need to get the oil changed in my car ... it may have to wait until after work one day this week since I don't think I'll be back Downtown until after they close. Luckily they're open until 7 during the week.

Anywho, I need to get my clothes in the dryer and take a quick shower. This entry was far less exciting than I thought it would be, but I guess I just wasn't in the mood to detail all the events of Friday the 13th and Pi day. Oh well.

Until next time. . .

Smitten
Wednesday. 3.11.15 7:52 pm
Can lust and smitten be used in the same context? Because I'm fairly certain there's a blurred line between the two at the moment.

I picked up my packages today and discovered that one of the pairs of shoes I ordered was accidentally ordered in the wrong size. So now I have to go back tomorrow to exchange them for the size that'll fit. It's only slightly inconvenient since I really don't mind driving up there. I just don't like dealing with the traffic after work. Since I'm now working "normal" hours, I have to deal with rush hour traffic.

I'm pretty excited to try out my new running shoes, along with the new pair of crop pants I got from VS. I also have a headband so I'll be interested to see how well that helps with the sweat. The new bra I have is a really pretty color blue. I have no one to show it off to, but when I wear it, I can be excited knowing I have it on.

Two more days until the weekend. I'm so ready to have two days to sleep in. Can it be the weekend yet?

Soreness
Monday. 3.9.15 7:08 pm
After going for a long, unplanned walk Saturday afternoon and spending time with friends Saturday night and yesterday evening, my legs are still sore. Don't get me wrong, it was a really nice walk. I love walking around the lake and it looks a lot less weird to walk around by yourself when you have a dog with you, or you're jogging. But my legs have quickly adjusted to the sedentary occupation and thus aren't used to being walked on all the time. I'm getting a new pair of running shoes on Wednesday, ones that actually fit my feet, so that should be more comfortable for exercise. The ones I've had are about half a size too big.

I logged in to Facebook for the first time in about 3 weeks and it was interesting seeing all the older stuff mixed in with the new stuff that would filter though on my feed. I will most likely put the app back on my phone this coming weekend and see how long it takes before it annoys me again. I may end up just keeping it for the weekend. Or unfollowing half the people on my list.

I'm gonna go to bed early tonight; after staying out later than I anticipated last night and still being sore from my weekend activities, crashing early is exactly what I need. Hopefully my muscles don't hate me so much in the morning. I have until Friday to recover because I have more plans to do stuff this coming weekend.

Spring forward.
Saturday. 3.7.15 4:56 pm
It's that time of year again. . . the time of year when we uselessly change the clocks and lose an hour of sleep. I don't know why we change the clocks. It serves no real purpose any more, but until the rest of the country catches on to what Hawaii and Arizona have already figured out, then we have to deal with it. I'm just happy this year that I don't have to work tomorrow so I can sleep in until whenever.

I ended up going out today. I told my friends that I'd walk their dog since one of them had to work late and the other is sick. I took the pup over to Greenlake and we walked the whole 3 miles. It's a beautiful day outside so the place was pretty busy. A lot of people, a lot of dogs and a lot of kids. I can handle the people and the dogs, but kids are annoying. Even if they're not directly affecting me, their presence is enough. Luckily, I was able to just focus on watching the dog zigzag back and forth and try to keep him from running in to people and other dogs.

Now that that's done, I'm in until Monday morning. I have no other plans for the remainder of the weekend and I'm going to keep it that way. I'd like a day to just sit around in pajamas and not do anything. Especially since I have plans next Friday and Saturday. Perhaps Sunday, but those haven't been entirely decided on yet.

Anywho, my food is almost done cooking and I'm gonna dive in to a movie on Netflix.

Until next time. . .

Are we there yet?
Thursday. 3.5.15 6:01 pm
It has been such a long week. I'm thoroughly convinced that I went drinking on the wrong night. I mean, clearly I was meant to go drinking on Tuesday night, otherwise it wouldn't have happened, but still. Most people say "it's been one of those days" ... well, this has been one of those weeks. And there's still tomorrow. But thankfully tomorrow is the final day of the week and 5pm could not come fast enough.

I'm in for the rest of the night, which is fine. I'm broke so I haven't a clue what I'd be doing anyway. But the bra has been removed and the pajama shorts have been put on so by those standards, I'm in for the remainder of the evening. Tomorrow will probably be the same. Hell, I may even go to bed early tonight and tomorrow. We'll see how I feel.

No plans for the weekend. I had one plan, but it's been postponed until next weekend. So laundry is the only thing I have to do between Saturday or Sunday. Sleep is definitely on the agenda for the weekend.

I'll keep this one short since there's really nothing to talk about. Work has just been extra annoying this week and my fried brain is ready for a break. Or alcohol. Lots and lots of alcohol.

Driven to drink
Tuesday. 3.3.15 8:48 pm
For the 3rd time in the two months that I've been doing this job, I've been in high need of a drink after work. The difference between this and the need to drink while I was in security is that I can wait until after work. When I was in security, I was wishing that the water dispenser dispensed vodka instead.

I met up with a friend at a pub in Fremont and we had food and a couple drinks. It was a nice way to blow off steam. I ranted about work and the beer was able to calm the nerves. He's one of those friends where I could hang out with him and lose hours of the day and not even notice. As much of a pain in the ass he is, it's important to have people like that in your life.

Tomorrow is Wednesday, halfway through the week. I have tentative plans for this weekend, but I'm thinking of postponing them. I've been busy almost every weekend for the past couple months and I'd really like to have another weekend of just nothing; where the only thing I do is laundry. We'll see how I feel in a couple days.

In the meantime, I'm going to watch the new episode of The Following and call it a night. I'll be getting up early to shower and wash my hair, since it's a bit late and I don't feel like going to sleep with my hair wet.
