Peaked?
Wednesday. 6.12.13 6:25 pm
Is it when your taste buds are all of out whack because you can't smell anything the indication that you've reached the peak of a cold? I hope so because I can't smell anything, all foods taste incredibly bland and my head still hurts from the sinus pressure. I don't feel any worse than I did yesterday, but I certainly don't feel any better.

I called off work again today, but I will be going back tomorrow. I have run out of accrued sick time so I can't afford to take an unpaid day off. It's only just the one day and then I have my weekend, but still. The 8 hours I'll be there will be rough. I clearly look the part so it's not like they can dispute the fact.

I finished watching the first two seasons of Sherlock. The third season won't be airing until sometime the very end of the year or the beginning of next year so I now have to find something else to invest in. Unlike with The Walking Dead, where I'm just waiting for Netflix to add season 3, since season 4 will be starting up soon, I know that there's currently no other available episodes of Sherlock so patience won't be as hard to come by.

Anywho, my thought processes are still running through a fog so I'm going to end here. Hopefully work tomorrow won't be the death of me.

Until then. . .

Sick brain
Tuesday. 6.11.13 3:42 pm
Anyone that argues that sick brain isn't a thing either has an immaculate immune system that keeps them from ever getting sick or they're delusional.

I called off from work today and I'm considering doing so again for tomorrow, just to give myself that extra day to recuperate. I hate calling off from work, but I don't want anyone else to get this head cold. Waiting an extra day to go back to work might mean that I won't be contagious by then.

Depending on how I feel later tonight will be the deciding factor. I feel okay for now; still coughing, sniffling and the sinus headache just won't subside, but if I start to feel shitty before I even go to bed, then I know it'll be worse in the morning. If I still am feeling halfway okay in the next 5-6 hours, then I'll go to work.

I wasn't able to get to sleep until around 4 this morning. The single dose of Tylenol did nothing in the way of helping me sleep. If anything, it just made it that much harder to breathe. I slept off and on for maybe 2 or 3 hours then gave up and got up.

I took a decongestant and after about an hour, I was able to breathe enough to take a 3 hour nap that finally made me feel like I had gotten some rest. I may or may not take another nap sometime here soon. I guess it depends on how I feel. I'll be taking another dose of the decongestant in about an hour.

Alright, I hope I feel better enough to go to work tomorrow, but we'll see what happens.

Until tomorrow. . .

Fuck this cold
Monday. 6.10.13 7:18 pm
Whatever head cold Jacob had, he decided it needed to be shared and apparently my immune system is on vacation.

I was fine last night. I woke up this morning with a rather sore throat, but nothing else. A couple hours in to the shift, I started getting a sinus headache. As the day progressed, so did the pressure. By the end of my shift I was blowing my nose probably once or twice an hour and the pressure on my sinus had only worsened.

A couple hours after getting home, I could barely breathe. Now, I feel like my head is going to explode from the pressure, I can still barely breathe and I have a dry spot in my throat that makes me feel like I'm choking and is causing my eyes to water.

I called off from work tomorrow. Whatever this is, it's very contagious and other people don't need to be dealing with it.

If it is what Jake had, I'll be better in 48 hours. Fingers crossed it's what he had. According to my description of the symptoms, it sounds like it's pretty much a match.

I have no idea when I'm going to bed tonight. I don't feel sleepy. Only exhaustion from the illness. I have one dose of Tylenol Cold that I'll be taking before I go to bed and I'll probably stop by the store at some point tomorrow to get more. I also have some extra strength decongestant that I'll start taking in the morning. It's got some kind of stimulant that causes you to be awake so taking it at this point in the evening is probably a bad idea.

I will most likely return to work on Wednesday, but we'll see how I feel toward the end of the day tomorrow. For now, I'm going to lop my head off. Ugh.

Until tomorrow. . .

Sleep deprivation = energy. . . wait, what?
Sunday. 6.9.13 8:47 pm
I got very little sleep last night. I think the only solid amount I got was from 3am until 4 am. I was in bed by 11, was awake to see midnight and I think that's when I initially dozed off. I was awake at 1, 2 and 4. The solid hour that I got between 3 and 4 had a rather nice dream involving cuddling with a rather attractive actor, whom I've been fawning over recently. Other than that, however, not much sleep was to be had.

I felt exhausted at 5 this morning when my alarm went off signalling that it was time to get up. I snoozed it twice and finally dragged myself out of bed at nearly 5:30. I threw my hair up in to the tight bun I don every day, yanked on my completely unflattering and uncomfortable uniform and headed out the door. I was zombie-faced for about two hours before my eyes finally adjusted to the fact that I wasn't going to let them close.

Work was slow and uneventful. Exactly how a Sunday shift should be.

I had every intention of napping when I got home, considering how very little sleep I got last night, but that didn't happen. Instead, I made myself up something to eat, watched a video on YouTube while eating, then continued and finished the puzzle and effectively finished the book the 11th Hour. Even now as I type this up, I'm still not feeling tired.

The sun has set and it's pretty much nearing my bedtime, the time that I actually strive to be in bed at every night, but rarely happens. How is it possible that I get next to no sleep and have more energy than I do when I get 5-7 hours? On a regular basis, I can't wait to get back in to bed and sleep for an hour or two after work. Was I really just that motivated to finish the puzzle and the book? Apparently.

I have a feeling this is only a rarity and have no idea if/when it'll be happening again, especially and hopefully not any time soon {the lack of sleep, that is; I'm fine with having a bunch of energy.}

Anywho, that's about all I have for today. We'll see what tomorrow brings.

Until then. . .

Not enough light
Saturday. 6.8.13 8:06 pm
I have maybe 100 pieces left to put in the puzzle. It's easier on the eyes to work on the puzzle when it's daylight out, but the setting sun has dipped behind some clouds so there's not enough natural light left to work on the puzzle. I'll finish it up tomorrow. Perhaps I'll even put a picture of it in my gallery. I haven't updated that section of NuTang in forever.

Instead of reading my book tonight, I think I will watch an episode of Sherlock. I've been wanting to watch the show since I saw Star Trek, but it has yet to happen. Each episode is an hour and a half long, so it's kind of like a movie, but it will be over in time for me to go to bed. After I finish the puzzle tomorrow, I'll read some more.

I re-ordered the pair of running shoes. Hopefully they'll arrive sometime around payday. This will give me an excuse to head up north. I'll also have to remember to buy socks while I'm up there. Since I need to buy toiletries, I'll already be in Target so it shouldn't be too hard to remember to buy the socks while I'm there.

It's back to work tomorrow ... joy. I have to start saving up money for my trip in December so I will probably be picking up a bunch of overtime when I can. Someone is going on vacation at the end of the month so I'll be able to pick up at least a few of those shifts. It means I'll be working 16 hour shifts, possibly back to back, but I need to save up about $2000 and I have a measly $150 right now.

Alright, I think that's it for now.

Until tomorrow NuTang. . .

Late entry
Friday. 6.7.13 10:36 pm
This is what happens when I open a book: I lose track of time, quickly. I had every intention of writing this entry two hours ago, but as you can see, that didn't happen. I had to close the book and type this up real quick before I fell asleep for the night.

I finished nearly 1/3 of the puzzle today. There's still a handful of pieces left on the section I tackled today, but tomorrow I will be tackling the sky portion. It's a lot of the same colors and the shading is all over the place, but I need to get this finished now that I'm far enough in and motivated enough. We'll see if I can't get it completed before the end on of the night.

I didn't get the shoes I wanted today. They ran out of stock on the size I need so I'll be keeping an eye on the site so that when they get the next shipment in, I can order them.

I'm fighting my eyelids right now so I will end this here.

Until tomorrow. . .
