February 29th

Well it's not every year that I get to write this date, is it? Kind of exciting. 

I handed in my paperwork saying I'd be out of here by April 30th today, whee! I also bought the amaaazing new contouring palette from Fiona Stiles and had a delicious grilled cheese with chili. And then I rested off a headache and had like four nightmares in a row. Not fair. Now I'm hungry and my heart is still beating kind of fast and I have to get back to sleep son since I work early tomorrow but I feel very not sleepy. 

Tomorrow is March! A month for cleaning and some dental appointments probably and a trip out to Columbus!

February 28th

I don't really have too much to waffle on about today! Work was okay, only stressful for the first half. I have tomorrow off, so I have to get a ton of errands done. But I can sleep in!

I didn't get to watch the Academy Awards, but I'm really pleased that Leonardo DiCaprio finally won for best actor. He is absolutely incredible, as an actor and as a public figure.

And lastly today I just want to make mention of the 20 year anniversary of Pokémon. Pokémon was not only the foundation for my love of gaming and a huge part of my childhood, but it is also one of the things that helped me when I was at the lowest point in my depression. I am so grateful for the franchise, and I can't wait to see how it grows.

February 27th

Time for my last audit ever! It's going to be a doozy, I'm sure. Full house! So much work to do! At least I get to work with someone I like. 

Have a good night, loves!

February 26th

It's the weekend! I would be so much more excited if I didn't just arrive at work! Also the hotel is full and there's tons of kids and ahhh busy. I'm just going to try and have a relaxing night.

Big hugs to Brad for making me feel so much better.

February 25th

I am sleepy tonight! I didn't sleep very well last night because I was all antsy. Trying to sleep when I know I have to get up in the morning is hard! I sleep so much better with no alarms. 

P.S. I can now officially announce that I am moving to Ohio in two months! Eeeeeeeeee!

February 24th

All right, I guess I go back to work tomorrow! I also have a few things left to do this week before my AUDIT which I can't believe I have to do, but...oh well. I can catch up on my Watch Later playlist, I guess. I just want to fix my sleep schedule!

I just want to wear my new MAC lipsticks and snuggle with the boyfriend and watch Suikoden II all night.

Happy birthday Brad! 

Today was another sleepy day, but at least I got stuff done. My bed here is just so comfy!

February 22nd

I am so very tired! So sleepy! I already slept a bit during the day but damn, the weekend is catching up to me. I had fun though! And being home is nice too.

February 21st

The last day of MAGFest was so bizarre. We were up until like five this morning, and the con technically ended at noon so we all just hung out, and then Brad and I went out for his birthday dinner and had awesome apple pie. It's been so wonderful to meet everyone here though! My flight is so super early tomorrow so it's bed time for me!

February 20th

Today has been so busy! I found an amazing group of cosplayers. And went to a sweet Thrown Controllers panel!

February 19th

Super tired. Went swimming, then to a concert, and there wasn't really time for dinner at any point. But the concert (Ninja Sex Party) was pretty great.

February 18th

MAGFest is so busy and so many people! I'm kind of easing myself into things. It's hard not knowing a ton of people here! Also naps. I wanna nap more.

At least I have my MAGFest buddy!

February 16th

I feel like maybe going over the stressful things that happened today might make me more stressed, but so it goes. First off, my hair appointment was canceled because my stylist unfortunately had to go home sick, and there were no more appointments left today. I rescheduled for tomorrow morning at 10, which means I'll be leaving here later than I wanted to, but I also really need a hair cut. The other stress was that Cas' get paperwork that shows he doesn't hav rabies, etc is inexplicably not with all of his other paperwork, so I can't get his license renewed til I get home. I'd love to stop by the vet early tomorrow and grab it but they're closed on Wednesdays for no discernible reason. This all means that I'll be smacked with a late fee, which is a pain. 

Two positives from today to counteract the negatives are that I got two things in the mail! The first of which is a sample of Andy Tauer'e newest fragrance, Lonesome Rider, and it is amazing. I also surprisingly got my latest GlamBot order, which I wasn't expecting to get before MAGFest. Hello, four new MAC lipsticks and the perfect shade of eyeshadow courtesy of ColourPop. Whee!

I still have a lot to get done before I head out (like, um, packing), but I'm still super excited! I found out the friend I made in the queue while waiting to meet Alan Rickman is actually going to be there, so we're gonna have a little reunion! Her name is Kate too. She's pretty awesome.

February 15th

Hi friends! I'm just...watching Lucahjin's Suikoden II LP...again...because I had a weird dream the other night about Suikoden II.

Seeing everyone's posts about how much fun they had on Valentine's Day yesterday kinda bummed me out since I didn't get to spend it with Brad. I get to see him (and so many other lovely people) super soon!

I have so much to do tomorrow! Hair cut! Eyebrow threading! Paying my kitty fee! Packing!!

February 14th

Happy Valentine's Day! I don't get to see Brad until Wednesday, but that's very soon and I'm very excited. In other news, stress-induced breakouts are fun!

I'm kinda falling in love with Freak by Illamasqua. Plus the bottle is flawless. 

...I do have some serious buyers remorse over some samples I bought though. Didn't need them at all. They were on a really, really good deal and I totally impulse bought them and I want my $20 back. (It's a Histoires de Parfum sampler set, 10x2ml for $15, plus shipping.) Excellent deal, but I'd rather have the $20 for MAGFest. Ah well.

February 13th

I heard the first chickadees of the year today! It took me a second to realize it, but when I noticed it I was so happy. Spring is coming! And I love chickadees!

Good night loves! Early work day tomorrow! And Valentine's Day!

Feeling extra sleepy tonight, so short entry! Only a few days of work left til vacation!

February 11th

I made it through the work week! Except I work this weekend. And Monday. Does that still count?

MAGFest is starting to feel more like MAGStressed right now. Lots of people. Airplanes. New people. Everyone else knows each other already. Tiny hotel room with five people in it. 

I am really excited for the ferris wheel, though.

February 10th

I wish I could fall asleep on the phone every night. It's so relaxing. I find it really hard to fall asleep sometimes, but just knowing there's another person there, and listening to them steadily breathe while they calms me down. 

Anyway, it's one week til MAGFest and I am so ready.

February 9th

Hnnnng it's almost payday! I'm thinking this one ought to be good. It'd better be, since it's gonna have to carry me through MAGFest.

Oatmeal without raisins and/or brown sugar is kinda sad.

I went to the store to get cups tonight. I spent $30 and did not get cups. I even looked at my grocery list when I got there and still managed to forget the cups. How am I gonna play that cups song now?

February 8th

Hello friends! Happy Monday! Work was okay today. Kinda long. Very cold outside. And windy. It's supposed to be nice and warm next week! Right after I leave, of course. It's okay though, because MAGFest! So soon! I'm so ready!

Columbus, don't be shy. 

Sleepy night tonight. But I made like $40 selling old clothes, so that's better than nothing. 

Now I've got to work in selling some perfumes!

Saturday, February 6, 2016

February 6th

Welp, today was the last day of work that'll go on my paycheck I get before MAGFest. I'm gonna need that to be a damn good paycheck, just saying. 

Hey Columbus, I see you.

February 5th

I am sleepy and stressed. And I've had a headache for most of the day too. Moving is very overwhelming. But I don't feel like staying here. Everything about moving is so expensive. The cat deposit alone is insane. Plus rent is way more in Columbus. And it's not like I've got a job lined up. Or a degree. God. It's all just so much to think about and plan and work out. 

Work tomorrow morning! Yaaay. 

I have Sunday off, anyway. I gotta sell a lot of stuff before MAGFest. I really need to go to Plato's Closet/Clothes Mentor, and also put some stuff up on eBay.

Sleeeeeeeepy. Little bit of a stomachache too. But having today off was like a miracle. 

Scent of the Day: Freak from Illamasqua

I am extra sleepy! But I have two days off from work now and I'm ecstatic! I'm so ready to sleep in, and get my laundry done, and cuddle with Cas.

February 2nd

So, I'm thinking about moving. Out of Minnesota. It's not a for sure thing yet, but it's been in my mind for awhile, especially since the start of this year. I feel a bit stuck here. Stuck in a pattern. Everything is so familiar- which is good, too, and means moving would be scarier- but then again, I don't feel like I'm making any progress right now. I'm not in school. My job is fine, but it's not what I want as a career. 

I've imagined moving before. Oftentimes it was abroad, usually to Ireland. That's a bit daunting though. And I really and truly love Minnesota, and it will always be my home. I love it here. But I'd like to do something different. And it's not like Minnesota won't be here in the future if I want to move back. 

But I'm really thinking about it.

February 1st

I don't even want to go over again how bad my day was. I got no sleep last night. Zero hours. And work was hellish. Stressful and overwhelming and I felt sick (my cold seems like it came back) and anxious and lightheaded and nauseous and everyone was so rude. It was not fun. 

Days like today are the days I am especially grateful for Brad. He makes me so happy.
