Enjoying the little things
Friday. 1.10.14 10:40 am
Since my original plans for tonight have been canceled/postponed indefinitely, I will be taking the time to enjoy a me night. I'll be spending the night in, rather than out, but it will still be an enjoyable evening. The plan? Good pizza, good beer and Netflix. Can't go wrong with something like that.
There are a few errands I have to run today, since it is payday, but they shouldn't take very long. I'll head out in probably an hour or so.
I've discovered recently that the manager I was in to has a motorcycle ... which increases the hotness level by a significant amount. I basically told him to name it and I'd do it just for a ride on the back. He told me that he only has one helmet. He was probably pretty relieved when our conversation got cut short by the store manager walking in to the office, but I will make one more attempt at convincing him to give me a ride. I could give a shit less, at this point, if I get anything else from him, but I haven't been on the back of a bike in years and I don't know of anyone else who owns one that would be willing to give me a ride. Perhaps sometime during my shift tomorrow I'll be able to bring up the subject again. If not then there's always next week.
Anywho, I'm rather looking forward to tonight. It'll be a small treat for myself and it'll be worth it.
Until next time. . .

I'm kind of fed up liking someone and having them end up not showing any interest. I'm putting myself out there and getting shit in return so I'm done for a while. It's shitty, but I can't just keep trying for something that's very obviously not going to happen.
I was very tempted to go for a drive today, but I need to make sure that I have enough gas in my car to get to and from work for the remainder of this week until I get paid. Then I will possibly go for a drive. Perhaps Portland or Bellingham. Definitely somewhere that's a good distance away from here.
Mini-rant over. Nothing else really is going on that I feel needs to be written about. I'm probably gonna take a nap soon. Isn't it lovely how old habits take barely any time to reform once you allow them to?
Until next time. . .

After living in Seattle for the past three years, you'd think that I'd be used to the fact that it rains here. A lot. However, whenever I am inside for a while then look out the window or go outside and it's raining, I have a sudden moment of surprise before remembering that this is completely normal. "When the fuck did it start raining?" is usually what plays through my head before I come back to the reality of understanding where I live.
I spent most of the day pissed off. I really am surprised I didn't snap at anyone ... I woke up that way and it didn't taper off as the day went on. Luckily I have tomorrow off from work and I intend to clean, which means that, if I'm still pissed, this cleaning might actually get done. A break will be taken when I need to go to the bank to get quarters, but that's about it. I told my friend I'd stop in at her coffee shop, but I'm not sure now. I kind of want to stay on track with the cleaning and I'm afraid if I'm away from the mess for too long, the motivation will dissipate and nothing will get done.
I'm very tempted to just go for a drive to nowhere, but I need to be careful on gas until I get paid again. Having only one day off tends to put a damper on such trips as well. Although going in to work on only a few hours of sleep has been something that I've gotten used to over the last several months so I'm not sure what would make another day like that any different. We'll see how I feel next weekend and what my finances and gas prices look like.
Until next time. . .

I did as little work as possible today. I was so tired that even walking around out in the cold did nothing to wake me up. I wandered aimlessly from place to place just going through the motions until it was finally time to go home.
Last night was okay. I ended up going to my friend's place for dinner then going with them to Gas Works Park to watch, what was supposed to be, a good fireworks show. Instead, what we watched was the fog roll in just in time to completely blanket the entire city and block out any chance of seeing fireworks. We counted down till midnight, heard the booms and, still not seeing even an inkling of flashing lights, left. At least the food was good.
I got home around 1am and had to be up at 5 for work. I got less than 4 hours of sleep. Luckily there really wasn't anything going on today so I was able to get away with not doing much of anything. Tomorrow will be a different story. It's the new year, everyone will be back to work and the boss will be pissed because he has to do all of the end of year paperwork. Which means that I will be doing my job simply to avoid having to deal with him.
No plans for Friday other than to clean. I really, really, really need to clean. I probably have 2 full trash bags full of stuff that needs to be thrown away. I would shred everything, but I may just take my scissors to all the bills and stuff and throw bits and pieces in separate bags then place them all in separate trash cans. Or just put everything in one bag and take it all to work this weekend to dispose of in various Shred-It boxes. At least that's supposed to be a secure method of disposing of confidential paperwork.
Anywho, since it's been a year of writing entries, I will probably continue to write something every day since it's become kind of an automatic habit. The only difference is that if I were to miss a day or two here and there, I won't feel guilty for screwing up my challenge. I have a new challenge for myself this year and it's something that this blog can only help by allowing me to type out my frustrations.
Until next time. . .

"When something goes wrong in your life, just yell 'plot twist!' and move on."
That's my motto for 2014. It couldn't have come at a better time, either. I'm not moving yet. My application was denied because of the money I owe to the apartment in Vegas that I had to abandon. I got really upset at first and then I got pissed off. Now I'm just kind of in a shit mood. I know that it happened for a reason, but since that reason has yet to make itself known, I just keep going at a steady pace.
I need to take these next few months and really focus on eliminating the debt that I owe. It's really not that great, probably somewhere in the vicinity of less than $15,000, but still. The current plan is to stay where I'm at, continue working the two jobs and attempt to make as much of my debt go away as quickly as possible. Perhaps I can be completely debt free by the time I turn 28. I have 10 months.
No plans for this evening since I have to work tomorrow morning. There was a tentative plan to go hang out with a friend from work and his girlfriend, but I have yet to hear from him so I'm assuming he either forgot or changed his mind. Either way, it's probably better that I'm not out in the massive crowd of people ... especially if I'm not able to drink.
Just as Christmas didn't really feel like Christmas, New Year's Eve doesn't really feel like it. For me, it's just another Tuesday and tomorrow will be just another Wednesday.
This is my final entry for the year. I've missed 12 days. 354 entries for the year 2013, including today. Despite the fact that I missed a week and a half, I think I did pretty good with this challenge. Now, I will do my best to continue with this daily entry stuff, but there's no specific challenge I'm setting for myself for 2014. At least not when it comes to writing blog entries.
Until next year. . .

Apparently I'm kind of popular tonight since I'm currently holding 3 active text conversations and 2 kind of active ones. Every time I start typing a new sentence, I have to pause to answer the texts then return to typing this. Either this is going to take forever or I'm not going to have much written down before I finally give up for the night.
I discovered today that I'm actually rather open about who I am in to. Which, in the long run, could probably come back and bite me pretty hard. I should start keeping shit to myself ... at least when I'm at work. I don't want the wrong person to hear something and misinterpret it and spread rumors. It's hard enough making sure everyone is all on the same page about shit as is.
Pause ... type.
I really need to start cleaning, but I am seriously unmotivated to really do anything productive once I'm done working for the day. Which is why Friday will be the most productive of days. I want to get the whole of my room clean and presentable by the time I go to bed Friday. We'll see if it happens.
Alright, time to laze about and hopefully get to bed at a reasonable time since my nap lasted longer than it should have.
Until tomorrow. . .
