November 30th

I visited Colony Cats today and made lots of cat friends! And Kiwi was there! Which is sad but also nice because I got to see Kiwi. I hope he finds a really good home.

I only just had dinner so I'm not sure if I'm ready for bed...but like, I slept really poorly all week and I probably need the rest. So I'll at least go lay (lie?) down.

November 29th

So I’ve been mostly awake since like 4-something this morning because I had a weird existential panic attack. It was shitty and I still feel weird. But I’m doing better, like at least I’m not actively freaking out. So that’s good. I am pretty tired though. Kind of nervous to sleep though, in case I wake up panicked again. Send good vibes please!

November 28th

Only about a month til my year in review blog post...I was thinking about this year today and my goodness, a lot has happened. Like...a lot. 2018 has been a big year!

Now that I’ve done pretty much everything I needed to do tonight (pretty much), I may just try to go to sleep early. My sleep schedule is weird - which hasn’t happened as much since my new job, but still happens - so I need to sort that out.

November 27th

A slow Tuesday indeed! Can you believe it’s almost December? Because I cannot.

My lower back still hurts. And it’s snowy. But it’s okay! Because Cas is a good boy.

November 26th

I only did a little Cyber Monday shopping today. I held off on some good deals though! Because I am a responsible adult sort of! And I finished reading my book!

November 25th

Not much to report today since a lot of my time has been devoted to...reading, of all things. I need to read more. I’m really enjoying it - I always do. Why don’t I read more? I’m finally getting around to reading An Absolutely Remarkable Thing by Hank Green, and so far I’m really digging it. Well done, Hank Green.

November 24th

I slept so much today, and I’m okay with that. Now Brad and I are playing Jeopardy! on the Switch. Also I had a delicious fish sandwich for dinner. Overall a good Saturday.

November 23rd

What a day. A slow day. And I ran out of milk.

I did buy a toaster though.

November 22nd

Happy Thanksgiving! I have to go to work tomorrow. Also the only thing I was actively planning on buying for Black Friday (a Sherpa hoodie) is already sold out. So I guess I’ll just...watch some YouTube and go to bed?

November 21st

Sometimes you pay hundreds of dollars to find out that your cat is okay. And that's okay.

I'm so glad I have tomorrow off. I'm really tired.

November 20th

Almost four hours at the vet tonight. It looks like Cas doesn’t have a blockage, but he needs to be checked again tomorrow. Which is an hour drive round trip and more money too. I just want my little man to get better.

November 19th

This is going to be a slow work week, I can feel it. I’m also really worried about Cas. It seems like he’s still losing weight. I don’t know. It’s upsetting me and freaking me out. Ugh.

Sunday, November 18, 2018

November 18th

Listen you guys. KFC is...actually kind of good. I had a craving today, so I went. And I got groceries. And played Super Mario Party with Brad for like...three hours. So I was at least a little productive I guess.

Cas is all goopy from his various topical medications, but at least he's pretty calm right now. I'm worried about him though, he's lost some weight. The vet thinks there might be an issue in his stomach. Given the fact that he likes to sneakily chew on plastic things, I'm nervous that he might have eaten some and it's causing him an issue. The only way to find out though is an ultrasound...and then, surgery? I don't know. This poor little guy. I hope he's okay.

November 17th

Gotta love a $300 vet bill. But Cas’ blood and thyroid tests were normal which is really good! He was such a troooer. Even though he hid under the sink. He’s a good boy.

Brad and I played Mario Party tonight. It was actually super fun. I need a couch though.

November 16th

Ugh. I have a headache. Ted’s Montana was not a good place for dinner. The last 1-2 hours of work today sucked. I’m so glad it’s the weekend, even though I do need to take Cas to the vet tomorrow.

November 15th

Hello! I’m very glad that it’s nearly Friday. We have a chili cook-off at work tomorrow!

November 14th

I just had a really weird and unsatisfying nap and now I’m super disoriented. I still haven’t had dinner. My eyes are dry. What an evening.

Tuesday, November 13, 2018

November 13th

Listen, I’m so tired I didn’t even finish any of the YouTube videos I was watching. I just napped. Now I’m going to...sleep more, I guess? Work was busy and I just wanna be cozy.

November 12th

What an utterly slow work day. I was productive, there just wasn’t that much to do. Then after work I made a return at ULTA and got Indian food. And now I’m...doing more laundry, I guess. What a fascinating Monday.

November 11th

Fawn by Ellis Brooklyn
Notes include neroli, coconut, magnolia and musk

This fragrance was a big old disappointment. I don't know what I was expecting, but the first whiff was a pretty generic "tropical" coconut with a lot of neroli. And then the coconut faded, and it was just neroli. Not even good neroli either - really one-dimensional and overly synthetic. And then it was gone. So not only was this fragrance unimpressive in terms of the scent, the longevity was also terrible. There are so many better neroli scents out there, ones with actual depth and complexity. Skip this one, it's not worth your time.

November 10th

Pokémon Go Community Day was kind of underwhelming if I’m being honest. Minimal shinies and it was cold outside so it was just like...not as fun as usual. And the app was super buggy for me and apparently a lot of other people too, which made everything frustrating. Oh well.

Right now I’m pretty much just craving oatmeal, but also sleep. I had a dream last night about one of my childhood crushes, which was oddly nostalgic. I have such bizarre dreams.

November 9th

Work went slow this afternoon, and it got dark way too early. But tomorrow is Pokémon Go Community Day! For Cyndaquil! Yay!

I’m testing Fawn by Ellis Brooklyn tonight. It smells...very generic. I’ve smelled this before. It’s just a super generic or age blossom/beach scent. Sigh.

November 8th

Mood for this week: productive but also sleepy

I can hear my neighbor’s music/TV but it’s all distorted. Though as I say that, I figured out what it is! I thought it was Phantom of the Opera, but it’s the Beast’s song in the new Beauty and the Beast movie. That was a pretty good song I guess.

Thank goodness for Friday, am I right my dudes? (*falls asleep*)

November 7th

Cloud by Ariana Grande
Notes include cream, praline, musk, coconut, lavender, and orchid

I tend to stay away from sweet celebrity scents. However, this one intrigued me just enough for me to give it a try. At first, I couldn’t really make sense of what I was smelling. It was creamy, but also quite fresh. It didn’t smell like lavender in the way that I’m used to smelling it - but that’s a good thing. This wasn’t overly herbal. It projected a little, but it didn’t feel cloying, which tends to happen with similar scents on my skin. As it wears, this turns into a creamy, milky-vanilla scent with a hint of musk. This isn’t a love for me, but I do have to applaud it. This is meant to appeal to the masses and I think it will, but it’s not boring or unoriginal like far too many other celebrity scents. If you like a youthful, sweet scent but don’t want to smell like Pink Sugar, definitely look into this one.

November 6th

I votes! And while I want to stay up and watch the results, I’m sleepy.

I also ran a mile today! A whole mile! I haven’t run in so long that I can’t remember the last time.

...perfume review scooting to tomorrow!

Monday, November 5, 2018

November 5th

Perfume review coming tomorrow! I tested Cloud by Ariana Grande, which is a new release. Spoiler alert: it’s a pretty good scent.

It was a slow Monday today, but I did buy some running shoes which is exciting. (I guess that also means tomorrow I really do need to start running...I was supposed to start today but someone went to see Lil Bub over the weekend instead of buying shoes...which was the right decision.)

Don’t forget to vote tomorrow if you haven’t already!

November 4th

I’m super exhausted...but today was a good day. Lil Bub was magical. I am a happy lady.

I’m at my mom’s house! And tomorrow I get to meet Lil Bub! I’m so happy!

November 2nd

I don’t have time to deal with dumb people and yet I put up with so many of them. Also, happy hour after work wasn’t even good. My drink was too expensive and the company was mediocre. And I had a headache. This evening is disappointing me. I even wore good perfume today, things should be much more exciting.

November 1st

Happy November! This month should be good. Lil Bub meeting. Chili Cook-off at work. Lots of sweaters and nice perfume. I'm all about that life.

I miss Gilly Hicks, you guys.
