Wait, there it... and it's gone again
Tuesday. 3.18.14 11:09 am
I've reached the point in my sickness that I can blow my nose and breathe clearly through both sides of my nose for all of about 30 seconds before one side decides it's not ready to enjoy airflow yet. Damnit. At least there's that much of an improvement. My nose and the part of my face around my nose is still ridiculously raw from blowing it so much. Whenever I walk around, I'm simply waiting for the Rudolph the Red Nose reindeer comments to commence. My sense of smell has also yet to return, so that's fantastic. {<~~ sarcasm ... if you couldn't catch that.}

This ailment has caused me to miss more work than I ever have when I've been sick. I'm usually really good about toughing through it. Hell, the week before my vacation, I worked both jobs 4 days a week all through having a cold. I don't think I missed a single day during that time. It sucked ass, yes, but I still didn't feel shitty enough to miss work. It's stupid how much this cold has knocked me on my ass. I missed work Saturday, Sunday, and today. Only reason I didn't miss yesterday is because I didn't wake up early enough to call off without risking getting written up. I should have taken the write up. My boss is the one who told me to call off for today, which I did at noon yesterday. There was already someone to cover the shift so it wasn't too much of a big deal.

I went out to the store last night, after coming home and zonking out with the help of more Tylenol, and purchased some soup, mac'n'cheese, Spaghettios and some juices with a bunch of vitamins in them. I'm currently drinking Bolthouse Farms Multi-V Goodness which has so much stuff in it. It's got 100% of 12 daily vitamins per serving {so I'm getting double the amount since I'm drinking the whole bottle} along with 32% of your daily fiber. I also have a Naked drink packed with like 2000% vitamin C that I'll be drinking a little later. I'm still taking Mucinex during the day and the Tylenol at night so hopefully by the weekend I'll be better.

I completely forgot about the Oil of Oregano trick until yesterday, but that's something you can only find at Whole Foods and I really didn't feel like driving downtown. Perhaps once I'm feeling better and I find myself near a Whole Foods store again, I'll grab a bottle.

I have to go to work tonight because I'm pretty sure if I call off sick from there again, I'll lose my job. I've already done so 4 times since I've started working there and being a part-timer, it doesn't really reflect well. Then as soon as I get home tonight I'll be taking the Tylenol and crashing out because I need to work both jobs tomorrow. It kind of makes me sad because I'll miss seeing my favorite face on Skype, but I really need to not stay up late tonight. It can be made up for Thursday night, since tomorrow night I'll be coming home and crashing again.

Only 4 shifts to get through, two part time, two full time. I can handle that right? I also hope that I'm better by the weekend since I'm supposed to be hanging out with people again on Friday. Fingers crossed.

Thank you immune system
Saturday. 3.15.14 5:11 pm
Over the last week or so, I've been staying up later than I should be simply because I don't want to get off Skype with the guy I'm very quickly connecting with. As a result, my sleep patterns have been off and I'm getting even less than what I normally get, which is far less than the recommended in order to stay healthy.

So my immune system decided to say fuck you and I'm pretty damn sick today. I actually have a low-grade fever. I'm achy and I keep getting chills. My nose is raw from blowing it so much. My throat keeps getting dried out, which makes me feel like I'm choking and thus resulting in my eyes welling up and my breathing all a mess.

I called off from work today and I will most likely call off from work tomorrow, despite the fact that the security job is a lot easier to do when sick than the cashier job, but if I can't shake this fever, I'm in no shape to be working. Especially if I can't sleep due to feeling like I'm choking every time I lay down.

So thank you, immune system, for putting me back in my place in a rather rude way. Effective, yes, but still still rude. Oversleeping through my alarm and being late for work once would have sufficed. I am learning my lesson, however, and I'll be making sure that my Skype dates end before 11, instead of 12:30.

The gift
Wednesday. 3.5.14 9:52 pm
I apparently have this unique gift that most people seem to lack. I have the ability to be able to find someone's car in a very short period of time. If I ever go anywhere, regardless if it's my car or not, I'm usually able to remember where it was left. Now, my accuracy isn't quite 100%, but it's pretty darn close.

It has definitely come in handy over the last couple years with people forgetting where they parked their vehicle in our incredibly confusing garage. Even with the other officer is in that building, they'll call me to help because then it might only take 10-20 minutes instead of half an hour or more.

It is kinda nice feeling appreciated.

Challenges and accomplishments
Friday. 2.28.14 3:07 pm
Today is the first off day in a good long while where I haven't had any errands to run. The only plan was to hermit it up and pretty much be lazy the whole day. Thus far, that's exactly what I've done.

I slept in until around 8, took an early shower {I usually shower later in the day} and have been hanging out in pajamas the whole day. I cleaned a little bit of my room. The corner looks slightly less cluttered. There's still a bunch of crap over there, but it's a little more organized. I also finally changed out the tapers and put plugs in. They're so much more comfortable than the tapers. My ears still have some healing to do, but now that I have plugs in, the healing process should speed up. I don't have to worry about them falling out or being pushed out.

Now, to explain the challenge for today. It's 58 degrees outside, sunny with not a single cloud to be seen in the sky. It's pretty much the perfect early spring weather and it's making it very difficult for me to want to continue staying inside. I have no idea what I would do if I were to actually go out, but seeing as how my funds are currently limited until Friday, not much can be done even if I were to go out. It's beautiful outside, though. I guess 3 years is long enough for me to finally start appreciating the beauty of a warm, sunny day. I guess there's parks I can go to. I do still have my bus pass, so that I can save on gas, but the idea of getting on a bus is actually kind of helping convince me to stay inside ...

Anywho, not much else to write about. The 3D puzzle that I've been working on over the last couple weeks is finally complete. It's pretty awesome. If you're on my Facebook, I posted pictures. It took 3 tries before I got it completed. The damn thing kept falling apart on me. It was a great challenge though and I can't wait till the next one. I think I'll buy the castle next. Maybe in May when I go to Barnes and Noble for the book I want to get.

Gauged
Saturday. 2.22.14 8:12 pm
I finally gauged my ears up to a size that I believe I'll be stopping at. My first holes are at a 6 and the second ones are at an 8. Having a 6 gauge in my ear finally makes it actually look like my ears are gauged. When I had the 8s and 10s in, they were still small enough that people didn't really take notice. These are definitely noticeable. They make my ear lobes slightly bigger than they normally would be. However, right now I think that may also be due to some swelling from the fresh gauges ... hopefully the swelling doesn't last too much longer. It'll take at least a couple more days for them heal enough for me to change from tapers to plugs.

There's certainly nothing like the feeling of freshly gauged ears. It's not really an addicting feeling, like tattoos are, but it's definitely satisfying. To me, at least.

Bruised and beaten
Thursday. 2.20.14 5:36 pm
Well, mostly bruised. Beaten, not so much. I have 4 bruises, but only one of them I know how I ended up with it. They're all on my left side and 3 of them are on my arm. The one I know about is from slipping on the stairs when it was raining. It's not advised to wear flats on a rainy day and walk down slippery stairs. There was a knot on my arm, but that has since gone away.

The other three bruises, though, I really have no idea how I got them. Maybe I'm running in to things at Sam's that I'm unaware of? Or I'm placing heavy items just so that it isn't something I would notice right away? Who knows. Either way, it's just kind of curious how I've managed to get 3 mysterious bruises without any idea how I might have ended up with them.

Anywho, there's really not a whole lot going on that's worthy of writing about. I have a bunch of errands to run tomorrow: oil change, car wash, bank, grocery shopping, bra shopping, birthday gift shopping, etc. I'll pretty much be out and about for a good chunk of my off day. Then it's back to work on Saturday. Paydays are usually busy for me anyway. I'll have an enjoyable day off next week.

Oh, I'm planning a trip out to San Antonio at some point, hopefully, in the next couple months. I'll only have to worry about the cost of the plane ticket and having expendable cash. I'll be staying with a friend who lives out there. I'm pretty excited about it, despite the fact that the idea for it was only just recently brought up. I'm going to plan for a week out there. Since I've already used my vacation for this year, I'll be taking a hit in pay, but hopefully with the second job, it won't take much to catch up on or, rather, save up for. I'll probably write about it once I can actually make the official plans for it.
