I made the two phone calls that I needed to make, but that was about it. I never did get out of my house, but I think I can manage a single shift without a belt. The pants that I wear them on are a little higher and the belt was usually worn loosely anyway. I'll stop at the mall on my way home and get a couple belts. I'm also going to have to put gas in my car before I leave work. I'm 100% sure my gas light will come on before I'm even halfway to work tomorrow. Luckily I know how much gas is left in my tank when the light comes on so I know I'll be able to make it without running out, especially since it never came on last night when I drove home.

My insurance company will cover my rental car at no additional charge because I already have the coverage necessary for rental cars so that's nice. I also found out that I will have better luck at being able to check in at the hotel early if I call the day before, rather than 3 weeks out. I've also decided that I am going to attempt to upgrade my flight ticket to first class. If it's available, I'm simply going to mention the fact that this is the first time in 7 years that I've taken a vacation and that it's been 3 years since I've seen my family, so I would like to know how much it costs to upgrade so that I can treat myself. I'm hoping mentioning those two things first will get the ticket agent to upgrade my seat for free, but if not, then it only costs $50. I deserve this for myself. I've worked hard and I deserve this.

I think I've found the perfect bag to buy and bring with me. It's a rolling duffel and the packing cubes should help out quite a bit with space conservation. As long as my laptop will fit in the bag, I should be good. I'll be buying it with the next paycheck.

Alright, as bad as it is, I will be watching one more episode of the Walking Dead before I call it a night. I'll have to get my laundry done after work tomorrow, but I can go to bed early if I'm really that tired so it's not too big a deal. Hopefully it goes by fast.

Until tomorrow. . .

Belts, gas and phone calls
Thursday. 11.7.13 9:38 pm
The three things in my title are the things I need to get taken care of tomorrow. My belt buckle snapped tonight while I was at work. At least it happened in the bathroom when I was fastening it and not while I was out at my register. The belt that I wear to work has been falling apart for months now so I suppose it's time to finally give in and get a couple new ones. I'll probably just drive to the Ross by work and see what I can get there, especially since that's where gas is cheapest right now.

I really hope that I'm not getting sick. My throat is a little sore right now and I'm hoping it's because I swallowed something wrong earlier and not because I'm getting sick. I guess if I have to get sick, now is the time so that I can be better for my vacation, but there's really no good time to get sick. I'm going to make sure I drink a lot of water tomorrow and maybe down some vitamin C over the next week or so in hopes that it'll help whatever is going on.

I'm so drained right now. I'll probably stay in bed until 9 or 10 tomorrow. It's the only day I don't have to wake up to an alarm so I'll be taking full advantage of it. As is I'll probably be crashing before midnight.

I can't think anymore. It's my Friday. My brain is already shut down for the {one day} weekend.

Until tomorrow.

I asked my manager out. I saw my window of opportunity and took it, but was turned down. I'm not surprised in the least, but it still kind of bums me out. No one likes to feel rejected. It started out with him teasing me that I needed a boyfriend to provide drama in my life and I came back with 'well, you could provide that drama.' It was a serious turn down, but done so in more of a relaxed manor rather than all awkward and shit. Hopefully that helps so that our work interactions aren't awkward. I don't think they will be and if they are, it won't be by much.

One more day to get through then a day to sleep in and relax. I'm so looking forward to that day. I always appreciate Fridays more than ever now that it's the only day I have to myself. That and Sunday afternoons. No plans for the day, but I may see if one of my friends wants to get together so that we can hang out before I leave for my trip. I also really need to stop putting off calling my insurance company. The call to the hotel might wait another week.

Alright, time to get in my Once Upon A Time fix.

Until tomorrow. . .

T minus 28 days
Tuesday. 11.5.13 9:41 pm
I will not be doing this kind of countdown every day. Just every week.

Work was ... work. It was mostly uneventful, but there was some issues toward the middle and end that took up a bit of time and I got home a little later than I wanted. I still got in a 20 minute power nap before the other job, but still. I don't like feeling rushed. The second job was good, though I would much rather preferred to have stayed in bed. It's only a short time more before I can cut back my hours so that I'm not working so much.

I will be staying up a little bit later tonight than I have been the last couple nights because my hair is wet and I need for it to dry some before I call it a night, but I'm not sure how much longer I'll stay up. I'm already pretty tired and showers make me more tired. So we'll see what happens.

Until tomorrow. . .

Time adjustments
Monday. 11.4.13 10:06 pm
Despite the fact that the time change didn't directly affect me, I'm still feeling some effects from it. It's barely after 10 and I'm feeling about as sleepy as I do when I stay up till 11, which it would normally be right now had we not changed the clocks back.

Needless to say, this will be a rather brief entry. I would have titled it 'sleepy,' but I already used that once and I like having a new title for every one.

Work was uneventful at both places. Tuesday is usually the busiest day of the week for me and I have a feeling tomorrow won't disappoint. At least it's my halfway point in the week. I know that I'll only have two days left after tomorrow.

Until then. . .

T minus one month!
Sunday. 11.3.13 6:41 pm
Oh my goodness people! One month from right now I will be 12 hours in to my first vacation in 7 years. Ah! Having this part time job really has helped in fast forwarding through time. It really doesn't seem like June, when I was approved for the vacation, was all that long ago. I'm down to the final countdown and it feels awesome.

Tomorrow is back to the daily routine of working both jobs, but it's been just over 3 months now so I'm pretty much used to it. I just need to make sure I find time to make all the phone calls I need to make, such as to my car insurance company and the hotel. I also need to make sure I order my bag and packing cubes within enough time to make sure they get here before I leave on my trip; I'll probably order them sometime in the middle of the month. Thanksgiving seems super late in the month this year so it's making me feel like I can't take advantage of any Black Friday deals and have the items shipped to my house before I leave. I can't have shit sitting outside my door for two weeks. Even being inside a secure building it's bound to get stolen. Oh well. It's not like I wanted to spend any more money than necessary. At this point, every penny is precious for savings.

It's kinda crazy how with the clocks turned back, it feels like it should be later than it is. I know that's probably something to do with changing the clocks last night, but the fall back thing doesn't really affect me much since I'm asleep when it happens. I feel bad for the grave shift people who had to work that extra hour. I suppose it gets made up for in the spring when they only have to work 7, but still.

Alright, only one more video on my Hulu queue and I'm going to get it watched. I'm also pretty much caught up on all my YouTube subs so you know what this means? I get to finally start Walking Dead season 3. It's only been like a year or something. And it'll probably take me forever to get the season completed, but hey, at least I'll always have something to watch.

Until tomorrow. . .
