November 30th

It's almost December. I am 100% more anxious than I was last week. It's like I suddenly have a million things to do for school and I'm running out of time because holy shit where did November go. There are only two weeks left of class before finals start. I am freaking out so hard.

November 29th

I did it. I survived. Ten hours of pain and suffering.

I bought a few things.
$10 leather gloves and a $5 perfume rollerball (Sinner by Kat Von D).
The perfume smells like patchouli, cinnamon and plums. The gloves are touchscreen compatible.

I'm going to sleep now.

November 28th

It's bedtime for Kate. Kate has to wake up very early in the morning so she can work a hellish ten hour shift for Black Friday. Kate is filled with dread and sadness.

My only Black Friday purchase: $1 nail polish from Julep (with free shipping.) I'd say I've spent enough for this year, and I'm ready to move on.

(Someone should buy me some London blue topaz though.)

November 27th

I am home visiting my family! Caroline and I are going to play Mario Party. I just drank orange juice with peach schnapps. Today is a pretty decent day overall.

Friday will not be.

November 26th

Hanging out with Sarah and Kjell and Adam...and Bear. SSA went better than expected. I don't want Black Friday to happen though.

November 25th

I was having a good night last night until I wasn't. I hope tonight will be better. I hope tomorrow will be okay.

At least I'm diamond certified at work now. I did one good thing today. And I smell good. So I'm not totally hopeless.

November 24th

A very happy birthday to one of the most amazing friends anyone could ever wish for, my dear friend since 5th grade, Dana! :)

I think I might need to watch the 50th Anniversary Special for Doctor Who soon. I've been pretty "off" the show for about two seasons but it seems like this episode is getting a lot of good feedback, so I'm going to give it a shot.

Shower time!

November 23rd

I am stressed about like eight things right now. I have lots to do and lots that I will do and a lot has been done.

I'm going to Sarah's again. We watched Monsters University last night, which I'd seen before but appreciated seeing again. I can't get over the badassery of Hardscrabble's character design. Also she's Helen Mirren, which is equally as badass.

November 22nd

A bar is walked into by the passive voice.

How are you fine people doing this Friday evening? I am becoming increasingly frustrated by how dark it's getting. I don't like taking an afternoon nap and waking up to a pitch black sky and thinking I've accidentally slept for eight hours.

Times I have gotten home after 5:00 AM this week: Three

I'm going to eat a goddamn Subway sandwich today. I have been craving one and it's payday so YOLO or whatever.

November 21st

My mind is a loop of three songs right now thanks to Lucahjin, Kjell, and the radio. Somehow they have come together to form my mind's playlist for the past few days so I'm gonna post the songs here because why not. Share in the joy!

November 20th

I got home at 7:15 AM. That's never happened after an SSA meeting before.

I have to go to a workshop for a class tomorrow and it's four hours long and I'm not too excited about it. It's not even related to the class, it's about community and diversity. Now, both of those are super things but somehow I feel like going to a required workshop about them won't be so super. Maybe I'll be proven wrong though.

Friday is payday! I want to go to Lush.

I am running late but DAMMIT I AM BLOGGING BEFORE THE MEETING

I look cute today.

November 18th

Too many things to do. Work and school and registration and job hunting. (Since Gilly will be no more, I need another job.) I might be going out tonight, but I feel lethargic and I need to shower. I tried out my new Clinique Black Honey nail polish though, and I'm totally loving it. Tomorrow I shall paint my nails for real with it!

November 17th

Today was shitty. Except for when I adjusted some watch links by myself. Things are better now that I'm at Sarah's though. Even though my nails got messed up. Sigh.

November 16th

I am inexplicably super tired. I also have a headache because I ran out of water at work and got all dehydrated. Now I'm going to see Forrest, eat some candy and take a nap/go to sleep. I have to be back at work at 10:00. Oh, and I'm working 6:00AM-4:00PM on Black Friday. D:

November 15th

Good evening! I'm off to check in on Forrest while Sarah is away in Chicago. I love that little bunny man!

I have work a 1:00 tomorrow so I'm gonna stay up and watch the last Suikoden II video (sob) and eat my feelings.

November 14th

I didn't have to work today! I don't have to work tomorrow! I only work 1-6 on Saturday!

I painted my nails. They look like this:


I'm pretty pleased with myself to be honest.

November 13th

I'm going to bed like right meow. I am so tired and I keep staying at people's houses until after 3 AM and my body is not happy with me. On the plus side, listening to the Mulan soundtrack in my rental car is cool because WUB WUB WUB SYNTHESIZER WUB WUB

November 12th

I'm at Sarah's and there is an additional dog here tonight! Her name is Mya (Maya?) and I love her so much! Tomorrow is work and class. Wednesdays are lame. 

Monday, November 11, 2013

November 11th

I get to go hang out with friends tonight! I have to drive my goofy rental car though. It's the strangest car! But it's pretty new, which is nice at least. I like turning the bass up all the way and listening to Radioactive by Imagine Dragons. WUB WUB WUB

I'm not having a very good weekend. I'm in a sad mood. I need to watch some QI.

November 9th

I went to Meg's funeral today. I think Meg would be happy to know that her funeral was held on Carl Sagan Day. I had never cried at a funeral before today, but Meg kept incredible company and thus there were some wonderful eulogies given. (They were also incredible because Meg was incredible and it comes as no surprise that her life should give way to inspiration and profundity.) Meg was so caring and so bright, and as Paul put it: "You need big, huge, massive stars in order to get a super nova. And, these stars live very short, exciting, energetic lives; they die at a very young age. And when they die, they explode in a spectacular super nova, throwing themselves throughout the universe. [...] Meg did not die of heart failure. Meg went super nova." 
Meg, you are dearly missed by so, so many people.

November 8th

All I wanna do is watch Lucahjin play Suikoden II. It gives me all the feels!

I'm at Sarah's right now. We're gonna go to Walmart because we're cool college kids who know how to have fun.

November 7th

I am so obsessed with turkey sandwiches right now. I had two today.

I might get to hang out with some of my besties tomorrow. Saturday is Meg's funeral followed by work, so I could use some fun times tomorrow. I've got work on Sunday too, plus I have to drive home. And drive back up here on Monday. Hooray hooray.

November 6th

I am very, very sad to say that my beloved workplace of a year and a half is closing. My good friend (read: CEO) Mike Jeffries is pulling the plug on Gilly Hicks, and Gilly merchandise will now be sold through Hollister. I'm going to try extra hard to pick up some hours at my store before we close, because my god I'm going to miss that place. I might buy some more La Perouse just for nostalgia's sake. I know Abercrombie has a bad reputation, but in my year away from school, I found myself at Gilly Hicks most days, and I really did love it. There were obviously things I didn't like, but it was like my second home. The smell of the store, the crazy loud music, the ridiculous look policy...it's sort of comforting to me, the insanity of it all. And I know it sounds super cheesy to be this attached to a job, especially one where most people who work there are so flippant about it, but dammit I like working there. I like Gilly Hicks. And I'm gonna miss it.

Remember, remember...

To blog before SSA. I'm at Patrick's now. It is delightful, as per usual.

November 4th

SSA tomorrow. :3 Also class. But my professor cut back the reading assignment, so I'm just gonna go to class mostly unprepared and then come home and nap. Tuesdays are great.

Dear person with whom I am upset: You are making me sad today.

November 3rd

My tail light has been broken since I got in that car accident, and I finally got pulled over for it tonight. The red glass covering the light is broken so it's a bright white light, and while the cops up north haven't minded, they do back home apparently. With good reason of course- I wasn't surprised or upset to be pulled over. And the cop who spoke with me was pretty nice. I called him sir.

November 2nd

I'm exhausted. I have to drive home tomorrow to get my car fixed. I just want to sleep all day.

Seeing Dessa was amazing. Sitting through two opening acts was not. It was worth it to hear her sing 551, but I left after that because I was tired and needed to go to Sarah's. But hey, I was standing in the very front, leaning on the stage. I've never been that close before. And here's a picture, taken with no zoom...


She was RIGHT THERE in front of me. How crazy cool is that?

November 1st

I'm very sad to have to say that one of my friends passed away this week. We weren't especially close, but she was a wonderful person and a great friend. Miss Meg, you are missed greatly. 

I'm downtown right now about to see Dessa, which is kinda of surreal. I'm excited despite the circumstances. Dessa is brilliant.
