December 31st

Like I said, reflecting on ten years of blogging will come in January. But 2019 was still a really good year. I waited until a little late to start writing this, but what else is new?

This year I started a new position at my job, got a second cat, really settled into my new apartment, and even went traveling abroad. I started school again and have a 4.0 GPA right now. I got to do jury duty. I went to a bunch of really fun conventions. Overall it was a really good year.

Thank you all for sticking with me through ten years of blogging. I'm very proud of myself. I'm looking forward to 2020. I hope you all have an amazing New Year's Eve and a fabulous 2020 as well!

Much love!

December 30th

Slept in just a smidge today, then was tired all day at work. This weather isn’t helping much. Then had some anxiety in the afternoon. I spent some time at home with Brad being a bit sleepy and brain-foggy while playing some fun games, and of course, proceeded to have dinner and am now watching Project Runway. It always nice when you like all of the finalists on a show!

December 29th

I can tell you all right now that I"m not ending this blog on the 31st. I was planning to do it on 1/10/20 anyway since that's when I really started daily blogging, but I feel like I"m not in the right headspace to wrap this all up yet anyway. I want to spend some time reflecting on the blog and writing a good, long post to sum up the decade, but since my health right now is still a little funky, I'm just not ready to right now. And that's okay!

I've been super tired the past week from my new meds but have been trying to get out and about every day, or at least spend time with friends. Today I thought maybe I did just need to sleep all day, so I kind of did just that. I feel a little out of it still, but I just want to try to get to bed on time tonight and have a good work day tomorrow.

Now it's dinner time!

Saturday, December 28, 2019

December 28th

More Project Runway today! Plus a trip to the game store and some fun games, and then a trip to the pet store for animal cuddles!

Bit of a weird tummy today since I actually ate out at a restaurant for the first time in a week but all is well. Just doing some Disney trivia now!

Friday, December 27, 2019

December 27th

Today was resting and Project Runway and grocery shopping! I also bought a coloring book and some markers and colored pencils. And I just finished a nice yummy turkey and salami sandwich!

I’m so glad it’s the weekend!

Thursday, December 26, 2019

December 26th

My sleep schedule is a little wonky, but I did go into work for a few hours! And then got some Subway for dinner! And then watched some YouTube and more Project Runway.

Time to work on my coloring book!

Wednesday, December 25, 2019

December 25th

Merry Christmas all! I spent some good time today hanging out with Brad and playing some Scattergories. Now to watch some more Project Runways!

Tuesday, December 24, 2019

December 24th

Did a little work, took a little nap today. Bit of an upset tummy this morning, but now just resting. And hanging out with the kitties!

Monday, December 23, 2019

December 23rd

Half day at work today, but my goodness I was very tired. Tomorrow is a half day again!

Bit of a funny tummy tonight so just relaxing and watch British panel shows again.

Sunday, December 22, 2019

December 22nd

Just watching QI today. Probably going to take some Klonopin tonight so I can get to sleep on time and go to work tomorrow.

Saturday, December 21, 2019

December 21st

Feeling a little better today, though I did sleep in pretty late! Now I’m waiting for my bedsheets to dry!

Just watching some figure skating videos now!

Friday, December 20, 2019

December 20th

Another sleepy day for this girl! Just relaxing and resting today. On the up and up.

Thursday, December 19, 2019

December 19th

Ahh, the Blogger homepage changed! I am conflicted! It hasn’t changed in quite some time.

I stayed home and rested today. YouTube and napping and kitties.

Wednesday, December 18, 2019

December 18th

Klonopin is back in my life. Just gonna have a sleepy night tonight.

Tuesday, December 17, 2019

December 17th

Today was chill. Admin happy hour after work. Got my grades in (All A’s!). Now it’s YouTube and oatmeal and chilling.

Also it feels like Wednesday today. And it’s cold. Yep!

Monday, December 16, 2019

December 16th

Today was super snowy! Then around lunchtime I developed a sore throat, so I’m just taking it easy tonight. Warm foods and all that. I ordered, like, a lot of tea from Amazon Prime Now. I hope some of it’s good!

Final grades for school are slowly rolling in...100% on my final paper for my religion class! Yay!

Sunday, December 15, 2019

December 15th

Sorry for the bad post yesterday. I had a house guest who really wanted to watch me blog apparently. The whole night was kinda uncomfortable actually. Luckily today we were able to talk about it and things seem smoothed out.

Now I’m watching a video about sexual dimorphism. As one does, you know.

Saturday, December 14, 2019

December 14th

Pigeon did well at the vet today! And now I want to sleep. I need headphones, I have guests. Siiiiigh.


Friday, December 13, 2019

December 13th

All done with school for this term! And winter break is a month long, so that will be very nice. My next two classes are longer and more introductory so I’m not exactly super excited about them, but I think it’ll be just fine. I’m sure my psych class will have quizzes, which I haven’t missed. English should be pretty easy though.

I’m kinda sore, so I’m gonna take a nice hot shower and head to bed. Pigeon has a vet appointment tomorrow and then I’m chilling with some friends.

Thursday, December 12, 2019

December 12th

Three out of five pages done on my final paper for one class and totally done with the other. My schedule today involved like six hours at the front desk because our receptionist was out and apparently no one else was available. So I didn’t get as much done as I might have wanted, but in the end I probably would have just overworked if I did much more. So it’s all good!

Wednesday, December 11, 2019

December 11th

So I didn’t really sleep last night. Went into work late. Work wasn’t bad, and I got a lot of homework done. Then after work my anxiety went back up. Mental and physical. Oof. 

Just trying to have a calm evening now. YouTube time. 

Tuesday, December 10, 2019

December 10th

I'm kind of loving this final week of school for the year. I've really preferred taking 5-week courses to 10-week ones, and the pace just suits me better. Next term is two concurrent 10-week courses, but they are both intro courses so I can't imagine it will be too crazy. One of them is basically English 101, and based on the writing of other students that I've seen in my other classes, I don't think that one will be challenging for me to do well in. (I ended a sentence about English superiority with a preposition. Sue me.)

Monday, December 9, 2019

December 9th

I cranked out so much schoolwork today. It's my last week before winter break! Gotta finish strong! Really hard to respond to other students when no one else has posted anything in one of my classes though. We only have until Friday this week until Sunday, so let's get on it folks!

Time for a late shower tonight. Gonna have a snack first though.

Sunday, December 8, 2019

December 8th

Nothing like watching a video about a $105 lipstick. And it’s not even a good lipstick. Bond No 9, why are you like this?

I did a whole lot of nothing today. I’ve just been sleeping and chilling and hanging out with the cats. And that’s okay.

Saturday, December 7, 2019

December 7th

I saw Frozen 2 today! I actually thought it was pretty good. Definitely some good music. (But also some bad music...looking at you, Kristoff.) Samantha is the best character, fight me. If I worked at Disney I would try to get that on my name tag for my character.

I guess tomorrow I’m just doing laundry! Might see what’s on Netflix, my dad recommended “The Movies That Made Us” to me. Apparently the first episode(?) is about Die Hard, and that means Alan Rickman.

Friday, December 6, 2019

December 6th

Not one but two meetings on a Friday? Oh sure. But I got all my homework done so I have a free weekend.

I am unreasonably sleepy tonight for some reason. I gotta shower still as well. But...kitty cuddles.

Thursday, December 5, 2019

December 5th

I've been feeling just a little bit off since last night. Just sort of a general nausea that's hanging around. I was fine this afternoon but it's kinda back again. And also the chicken patty I put on my sandwich for dinner had actually literally no flavor so that was weird and unhelpful.

Did I watch another YouTube video about The Wiggles tonight? Yes, yes I did.

Wednesday, December 4, 2019

December 4th

Not too much going on today. Played a game with my coworkers at lunch. Did a little homework. Chill evening.

Not much going on tomorrow either. Just work and homework again. It’s cold here.

Tuesday, December 3, 2019

December 3rd

Today was the best health day I’ve had in awhile and I’m super happy. Not perfect, but certainly better than it’s been. I really feel like this new stuff is starting to work.

Today was actually pretty productive. Did some work, did some school. All that jazz.

I met a wonderful cat today. I actually met lots of great cats and dogs at the animal Chester but there was this really hefty tortie girl named Bella who had the most gorgeous markings and I fell in love. She was so calm and gentle and kind and affectionate and if I didn’t already have two cats I would have adopted her in a second. I love her. I hope she finds the best home ever.

Monday, December 2, 2019

December 2nd

A productive day both for doing homework and receiving student loan checks. And health wise, not a bad day either. Definitely the best I’ve been at lunchtime in awhile which is great. I hope that means the new meds are starting to work.

So I have two desks at work and I split my time between the two. Let it be known that my basement desk is COLD and I was freezing at work today. One of my coworkers was wearing her jacket. If I didn’t think I’d fall asleep I might buy a space heater.

Sunday, December 1, 2019

December 1st

Happy December! I guess this is the last month of daily blogging, huh? I suppose since my daily blogs didn’t truly start until 1/10/10, I may go into January a bit as well. But still, I suppose it’s winding down a bit. It’s honestly surreal. I’ve been doing this for ten while years and it sure doesn’t feel like it. My ten year high school reunion is next year. I wouldn’t be surprised if I still blog from time to time...it’s a habit at this point if nothing else. But it’s also helpful for me to look back on for various reasons.

I gotta get this shit published. Not to sell, just for myself to have a physical copy. Well, probably note than one copy. I’ve written a lot. In fact, I’d love to know how many words I’ve written over the years!

Saturday, November 30, 2019

November 30th

Cas got his vaccines today! It's really crazy how expensive stuff like that is. Now I'm just at home doing laundry and chilling. I had some pumpkin pie. And I'm surprisingly sleepy for some reason.

Tomorrow should be pretty low key. I hope the weather is nice at least.

Friday, November 29, 2019

November 29th

Well work was certainly slow today, but I did homework so it was all right. I went to Ulta after work though, and that was not calm or relaxing. It was busy, and they were sold out of what I wanted, and then it took me like an hour to get home because there was an accident on the ramp I needed to take.

Cas is getting some vaccines tomorrow, and that’s all I have planned the weekend!

Thursday, November 28, 2019

November 28th

Happy Thanksgiving! Brad and I went out to eat, and then we did a little shopping. And now I have a Christmas tree! Cas has already climbed it once, so who knows how this will go. Pigeon has been good though.

Work tomorrow...yay. It will be fine honestly - and I’ll do a bunch of homework. I’m not sure I’m going to do homework today. I should, but I’m super sleepy and my head hurts. I think because of how the rubric is weighted I can still get an A on it if I turn it in tomorrow, so that’s the plan now.

Wednesday, November 27, 2019

November 27th

Did a little homework (and about to do more), reorganized the perfume cabinet, and ordered some groceries. Not the most, um, out of the house evening, but still somewhat productive.

Tomorrow should be a nice, chill Thanksgiving. Gonna eat some turkey with Brad. Probably do some laundry. Maybe do some school work. Take a nice shower. Relax.

Tuesday, November 26, 2019

November 26th

A new day, a new medicine! My doctor was super apologetic about all the trouble I’ve had and for forgetting some elements of my medical history. I guess they are transitioning systems and some of my info wasn’t as readily available to her. So now I’m trying a new medication that isn’t a benzo OR and SSRI, which is great! It’s actually something my sister took for headaches before she figured out she had a chiari malformation. I’m really hopeful this one will work!

I have way too much homework for a short holiday week and it’s dumb.

Monday, November 25, 2019

November 25th

I got four wonderful new perfumes in the mail today and I’m super excited!

This morning was rough. My doctor also can’t seem to remember my medical history each time she messages me. Like...look back through our previous messages maybe? Today she asked if I was familiar with benzos. Why yes, last week I was telling you about how I was on them for four years. Now if this was something where I saw her in person last week and she had tons of patients and couldn’t remember, I guess that would be more excusable (though I still would have expected her to check her notes), but this is literally a message thread on a computer. She has documents I have sent her explaining my medical history. It would not be hard to peruse those before suggesting something to me. Anyway, I re-explained that I had been on benzos for four years and asked if there were alternatives available and haven’t heard back. I really like this doc in person but I also feel like if she had never prescribed me Buspar this akathisia wouldn’t have come back on my trip. And then the Viibryd and tapering off the Lexapro didn’t work either because last week I had serious SSRI discontinuation symptoms, the worst I’ve ever had. I’m just at a loss. Everything was fine before my vacation. I wasn’t doing perfect but I was managing. Now I’m a mess and I can’t get sorted out. It’s effecting my work, my social life, and even just my personal time. I can’t eat in public without my anxiety and other symptoms going absolutely crazy. I don’t like having to repeatedly grab the table to steady myself because I feel like there’s a tremor in my brain or like I forgot how to swallow. It’s all very scary and weird and also embarrassing and I just want to be back to normal.

Sunday, November 24, 2019

November 24th

Hi friends! I saw Jojo Rabbit today and really enjoyed it. I definitely highly recommend it.

Gonna have a chill night and hopefully a chill week as well. (I wish I could make my tooth stop hurting though.)

Saturday, November 23, 2019

November 23rd

Sleep debt will really get to you after a long week, especially when the weather is grey and rainy. I slept like...all day. And evening. I just slept. But you know what? It was all right. And now I’m waiting on some Chinese food to get here because $6 edamame is totally reasonable, right? $9 for dim sum is fine I guess but that much for edamame?? I am baffled. But it should be here any minute and I’m excited!

Friday, November 22, 2019

November 22nd

This morning was another rough one health wise. Having some SSRI discontinuation stuff. Brain zaps. Really frustrating and uncomfortable.

But I wrote a paper for school so at least I was productive.

Then I ate too much Indian food at dinner.

And now it’s cozy time at home.

Thursday, November 21, 2019

November 21st

Good morning! I just took a long nap. Kinda in the mood for mac n’ cheese.

This has been a long week. Highs and lows and all that. But next week is short and easy and I’m excited!

Wednesday, November 20, 2019

November 20th

Crappy health day again, but school went well and I found an amazing new Thai restaurant near me so it’s all good. Now to shower and relax!

Tuesday, November 19, 2019

November 19th

Today was a tough health day. I didn't really feel able to do much of anything until after lunch, and even then I certainly wasn't feeling my best. But better than how agitated and just overall poorly I was in the morning. And I managed to get some schoolwork done - and got 100% on it - so that's encouraging. And I'm doing a huge perfume swap! My biggest yet! I am sending them EIGHT bottles!

Monday, November 18, 2019

November 18th

It’s already the 18th?! And today itself flew by so fast. Work was fast, this evening was fast, I don’t know where the day went. I’m going to try and sleep early though because I didn’t sleep well last night...I could fall asleep and then I woke up earlier than I meant to. I need to start reading before bed again to unwind. Except sometimes I get caught up in my books and don’t sleep, so I have to avoid that too.

...Thai food?

Sunday, November 17, 2019

November 17th

Did I do much today besides sleep and go to Target? No, not really. I like lazy Sundays.

I don't think I have anything spectacular planned for this week - I've got school, and work should be pretty typical, and the weather is supposed to be all right. Hopefully CVS can finally figure out my prescription since it's been like two weeks now. Otherwise things are looking up to be pretty good!

Saturday, November 16, 2019

November 16th

Community Day was pretty all right today! A little chilly but manageable. We'll see about the rest of winter.

I'm still craving Indian food. I had Panda Express tonight, and that sort of satisfied my craving for Chinese food, but only sort of. I want dumplings.

Oh, Cas has been accidentally kicking me in the head a lot while sleeping lately. Love claws in my hair. Very fun.

Friday, November 15, 2019

November 15th

Oh hi, I'm a brunette again! It's been like three and a half years! Let's get this hair healthy and whatnot, shall well?

Community Day in Pokémon Go tomorrow, but no weekend plans beyond that, I think. Kinda want some Indian food though.

I don't think there's much else to report today!

Thursday, November 14, 2019

November 14th

Got a new tea tree oil kit from The Body Shop and have just learned that the toner may be a bit much for me. My face is so red! Hopefully it just takes a day or two to get used to it, but gosh. I look rough.

Gonna try some new Body Shop shampoo as well. Anyone tried the Shea butter shampoo line? Any luck?

Haircut tomorrow!

Wednesday, November 13, 2019

November 13th

Hi, I have acute akathisia! Which sucks but at least I know what’s going on with my health! Now I just gotta get better.

I took such a nap when I got home today. I feel better. I also still feel tired, but a lot less restless at least. Wintertime sure does weird things to my sleep schedule.

Tuesday, November 12, 2019

November 12th

I had a weird mental health day today - lots of restless energy and just general weird feelings.

Anyway, it’s cold and snowy here. Kinda in the mood to sleep in tomorrow and just bundle up in hella blankets. Oh, and both cats are there for cuddles of course. Hell, let’s bring some more cats. Cat party in my blanket fort!

Monday, November 11, 2019

November 11th

I did so much schoolwork today! Yay! And then the power went out at the office and I went home and napped.

Cas has tears in his eyes and he looks so sad and sleepy. I gotta give him extra hugs tonight.

Sunday, November 10, 2019

November 10th

Today was pretty chill! I cleaned some more and did some laundry. Not too much else really. Now I’m going to try and actually sleep somewhat early! I mean honestly with DST it feels like it’s 10pm already anyway.

Slow work day tomorrow I’m guessing. And that’s okay with me!

Saturday, November 9, 2019

November 9th

Am I blogging late because I got hyper-focused while cleaning? You betcha. Once I start I can't stop. Gotta make everything nice!

Now I'm hungry. I had Popeyes earlier and it was too spicy. I want mac and cheese but I also feel like I should have something...not so rich. Because that Popeyes was a lot.

Time for kitty cuddles.

Friday, November 8, 2019

November 8th

Boss took me out to lunch today. Was pleased with the food and also pleased that the table didn’t shake from my bouncy leg. Good table. Great construction. Love it.

I’m blogging at 8:30 because I’m kinda in the mood to sleep. Judge me.

I looked over my classes for the next five weeks. One seems pretty standard for a fast-paced class, but the other looks insane. Like, at least one paper due per week. It’s wild. Thank god it’s only five weeks.

Thursday, November 7, 2019

November 7th

Well, today was a slow work day with some weird sleet-snow weather. I also had a headache all afternoon even though I took Advil.

So I went home and ate oatmeal and napped. And that’s okay.

Wednesday, November 6, 2019

November 6th

I don’t like how early the sun sets. I don’t like leaving work and feeling like I worked late because it’s getting dark out. And I don’t feeling like I have a shorter evening either.

I do love my cats though. They’re so good.

Tuesday, November 5, 2019

November 5th

Cat shelters are a good place to visit after a stressful morning. I met lots of good cats today! I met Charlie Brown who has a really old buff cream/orange boy and also Ray who was grey and white and skinny and had a weird ear and blue eyes! I love them both! And all the other cats too. And my cats!

Monday, November 4, 2019

November 4th

Prescription for new meds incoming, assuming I can afford them. Apparently my insurance doesn’t cover them, so that’s...great.

I’m kinda mentally tired after a stressful day of thinking I have to pay $300 a month for meds so I’m a little fuzzy in the brain. Also I had a dream last night about being conscripted into the Vietnamese army. So you know.

Sunday, November 3, 2019

November 3rd

Someone didn't know the clocks were going back until she woke up this morning! Like, I didn't see anything about it anywhere. I'm out of the loop I guess.

Today was pretty fun! Brad and I went to a new arcade in town and I found out I'm not half bad at coin pusher games.

Doctor's appointment tomorrow morning and fingers crossed that I can get on the path to fixing my new health issues. I just want to get back to normal!

Saturday, November 2, 2019

November 2nd

Today was fun and good! I went out and played some Pokémon Go and we met up with someone we had seen at a previous raid day which was really fun. Also I slept in which was...incredibly needed and wonderful.

Now I'm gonna eat some Wendy's.

Friday, November 1, 2019

November 1st

Well work was stupidly busy. I didn’t even take a lunch break, there was too much to do for this damn project we had to submit today. I am so glad it’s the weekend. I just want to cuddle up in bed and sleep in tomorrow and not think about spec books.

I finally scheduled myself a doctor’s appointment. Monday morning. Hopefully this will help me get sorted out.

Thursday, October 31, 2019

October 31st

Happy Halloween! I wore a suit to work and I think I looked pretty good. So there.

Anyway I’m tired of staying late at work and this weather sure isn’t helping, so I’m pretty ready for the weekend. Do I have plans? Not at all. And that’s awesome.

Wednesday, October 30, 2019

October 30th

Today was busier than expected! Really from 11 onward I had plenty of stuff to do. Unexpected, but it was all right. And I had lunch at the office with some coworkers, which is one of those things that’s nice because office friends but also I like taking an alone lunch too because I can decompress and get out of the office and all that. Also, the weather is crap. So grey. No sun. Very dark and gloomy. Not fun. Tomorrow it might snow or flurry? Sigh.

I’m going to try my Overtone conditioner though - I hope it turns out well!

Tuesday, October 29, 2019

October 29th

Work was much more chill today. Unfortunately the weather has gotten to that point where it’s grey all day and never sunny so I was pretty tired all afternoon. I need to get outside more this time of year I think, maybe I can trick myself into thinking it’s nicer weather.

Tomorrow is gonna be quiet in the office and I’m okay with that.

Monday, October 28, 2019

October 28th

Okay, too many nightmares in a row. I gotta sleepy on the other side of the bed or something.

Today was good! Busy, but that does make the time go by faster so I can appreciate that. The next two days should be a lot quieter - there’s a conference in town that a lot of people in the office are attending.

I’m gonna have a fruit cup and I guess try to sleep some more. No bad dreams though, please!

Sunday, October 27, 2019

October 27th

Well, it’s later than I thought!

I’m back home safe and sound and a little bit hungry I think. I had dinner with Brad and now I gotta get to sleep, but like...Haribo gummies, you know?

Saturday, October 26, 2019

October 26th

I’m at my mom’s house! It was super rainy all day so the drive here wasn’t great, but I listened to Hadestown for the first time in awhile. (And then it made me sad.) But it’s so nice to see my mom! And I gave her the gifts I got her in Germany as well. All is well here!

Friday, October 25, 2019

October 25th

I’m gonna sleep in tomorrow y’all, I’m ready. But this week has gone pretty well all things considered. Hooray!

Anyway I bought a jumpsuit today. Deal with it.


Thursday, October 24, 2019

October 24th

What if I actually went to bed early tonight. What if. Like, I am really in bed with a sweater and pajama pants on. Who am I?

I’m gonna go visit my mom this weekend and I’m excited!

Wednesday, October 23, 2019

October 23rd

I’m back on my bullshit y’all, I am watching YouTube instead of showering and going to bed. Gonna eat some cookies.

I’m a sleepy bitch.

Tuesday, October 22, 2019

October 22nd

Work is actually a bit slow this week! I thought it was going to be hectic, but I seem to have come back right after all the crazy. It’s all right though, it means I’m not overwhelmed.

I’ve got a free weekend...no idea what to do. Possibly visit some cat shelters and love on some cats, because kitty cuddles are good therapy.

Monday, October 21, 2019

October 21st

First day back at work wasn’t too bad! I’ve still got some restless energy and mild jet lag but I feel like I’m doing better. Also CBD oil is great. And so is Subway.

I love autumn and spooky cozy season.

Sunday, October 20, 2019

October 20th

I felt pretty good yesterday and most of today. Then I went out for dinner and my anxiety symptoms all came back out of nowhere and haven’t subsided. I’m so frustrated and I don’t like feeling like this. I sent my doctor a message so hopefully things will get sorted out soon. I know they will.

Saturday, October 19, 2019

October 19th

I’m so happy to be home with my stuff and my cats. It’s nice here. I missed Ohio.

Friday, October 18, 2019

October 18th

I’m back home. Thank goodness what a rough day. I’m going to have some food, watch YouTube, and decompress. And sleep...definitely sleep.

Thursday, October 17, 2019

October 17th

Aside from a rainy morning, today was all right! I got quite frustrated with Google Maps since it couldn’t efficiently find this perfume shop I was looking for, but I found it and found dinner and found Penney’s/Primark and had a much easier time of the tram, so I would call today a success. I also bought a suitcase so I could check a bag on the way home. I get a checked bag for free and I’m not going to have to lug it around anywhere, so it was 35 Euros well spent.

And tomorrow I head back home!

Wednesday, October 16, 2019

October 16th

What a lovely day today! Aside from a pulled muscle(?) in my neck, today was fun. I went to Dún Laoghaire to walk around, and it was fantastic. Tomorrow I’ll do some shopping! Gotta get up a bit earlier tomorrow though. I can do that.

Tuesday, October 15, 2019

October 15th

I’m very happy to be here in Dublin. My hotel isn’t in a great location, so I’m sure I’ll need to figure out the bus system. But I’m right across the street from a gas station, which means cold bottled water on demand! That’s a huge plus.

The flight today was pretty easy. Customs was a pain, and the terminal at Berlin Tegel wasn’t very nice, but Aer Lingus always does a good job. Now I’m just watching TV in the hotel and relaxing.

October 14th

Today is my last full day in Berlin! I slept in quite a bit, did some shopping, and now I’m on my room with room service dinner and watching some British game shows. Tomorrow I fly to Ireland!

I have really enjoyed Berlin. I would definitely come back here in the future. I’m sure I will someday!

October 13th

Today I went to the Pergamon Museum! I was tired and my eyes were dry, but it was good. Then I walked a looking way to the Berlin Wall museum, which was kind of hard to navigate at night since it’s all outside. I did so much walking today! I’m tired! I hope I can sleep well tonight!

No plans tomorrow! Maybe Pfaueninsel if I’m feeling brave enough to do public transportation!

Saturday, October 12, 2019

October 12th

I went to the zoo today! I’m actually quite tired now, which is excellent because I want to get to sleep early tonight.

The Berlin Zoo has a weird layout. I got lost so many times! The zoo itself feels a bit dated, but it was still a good time. I saw some new animals, which is always exciting. The panda and the seals and the hippos were really cute! I didn’t get to go to the aquarium, but I’d definitely go there in the future if I get the chance. Maybe even on Monday! Tomorrow is Museumsinsel day!

October 11th

Sometimes when you travel alone, you have to do dumb stuff that you wouldn’t usually do. For me, that means deciding spur of the moment that sure, after shopping you’d actually be quite keen on seeing the Brandenburg Gate because not much is open. And hey, it’s a two mile walk at night, but that’s okay! And then you get a mile into your walk and you’re sort of away from all the stores and the interesting things to look at. But what’s this? A Lime scooter left in the middle of the sidewalk? And your GPS wants you to go through and completely unlit park that may or may not be open? Oh sure! It’s not like I’d know my surroundings any better in the daytime! Sure, this park is probably really lovely, but it’s totally fine if all I can see is two feet in front of me! And sure, I stepped in a deep puddle that totally soaked through my shoes!

But I made it to the Gate! And there was a light show! And then I saw a cool lady playing guitar and singing Hozier and OutKast!

And then I took an Uber back to the hotel.

October 10th

I took a long train ride from Frankfurt to Berlin today! Berlin is wonderful. I love the atmosphere here, and my hotel is fantastic as well. I even went grocery shopping. Now I have to figure out my TV remote since it’s not working. Then I’m gonna sleep!

Wednesday, October 9, 2019

October 9th

Another tough day here. Currently at the train station waiting to go to Frankfurt - and it’s really chilly!

Tuesday, October 8, 2019

October 8th

Strasbourg is so beautiful! Unfortunately it’s a bit grey here today, but that’s all right. I am dreadful at French though. Like, I knew that going in, but I was presented with a French menu at a little cafe/smoothie place and while I knew that a Fragola smoothie would be strawberry, I didn’t know that the “Le Thon” Sandwich that I panic-ordered was tuna...with corn? Such a weird combo. Not bad, but like...I didn’t want tuna. I’m regrouping at my hotel right now because I literally could not find a public toilet, so I just went back to my hotel. How embarrassing.

I also bought...perfume! It was honestly a completely impulse buy. I was in what is essentially the French equivalent of Nordstrom because oh my god, they have a lovely perfume selection. Lots of stuff that was way too expensive though. Then I see these little 30ml Diptyque bottles. I smell the tuberose one. Then OF COURSE, because apparently it is a universal thing for perfume ladies in department stores to hover, the sales lady comes over and is speaking to me in French and I’m saying the only French phrase I learned for this trip (“I don’t speak French.”) and she explains kindly in English that this is some limited edition bottle blah blah and it was actually quite affordable as far as Diptyque goes, like 55 Euros, so...I bought it. It’s quite a French scent, so it just felt right.

Then I went to Uniqlo and bought a raincoat because it’s been drizzling, and embarked on an incredibly long journey to find a toilet. I never found one. So now I’m at my hotel having a snack before dinner.

Monday, October 7, 2019

October 7th

Today has been a very tough travel day. Now I’m waiting on a train to take me to Strasbourg. But I ordered some food and drinks in German which is pretty dope.

Sunday, October 6, 2019

October 6th

On a plane headed to Frankfurt! I’m arriving tomorrow in Frankfurt time (and my local time), so have an early entry! I met calming dogs at the DFW airport and I’m super happy!

Saturday, October 5, 2019

October 5th

The pre-trip anxiety is real! I don't know how I'm going to sleep tonight. I don't even feel like my CBD oil is doing much. Hopefully the cats will be calm and cuddly. I'm honestly super stoked that everything fit into my backpack and purse without much trouble. I had to make a last minute run for some travel toothpaste and deodorant, but I think I'm pretty good to go now! Let the fun begin!

Friday, October 4, 2019

October 4th

All right y’all, no work for two weeks! Just one more full day before vacation! Yay!

I ended up leaving work in a panic because I decided to check my seats for my flights and found out they were all unassigned despite me picking them out many months ago. (I only left about 15 minutes early, but I was just losing my mind down at my desk.) Luckily I was able to get all but one assigned back to a window seat. Unfortunately I had to pay to sit in a “preferred” seat on my flight to Frankfurt which was like $90 and doesn’t seem to be too special of a seat, but I’ll happily pay $90 to sit in that seat over a middle seat. Even though I originally picked a window seat...maybe it’s some shady way to get extra money. Though on my long flight home I was able to get a window with no issue, so who knows? I’m going to look into my Berlin to Rome flight now since that’s on a different airline and see what sort of seat I can get for myself there. Fingers crossed!

Thursday, October 3, 2019

October 3rd

I went to a cat cafe today. It was really nice and chill and just what I needed. Then I bought a ton of chewing gum for my trip.

Now I’m just ready for sleep. Cas is here in my pillow, so we’re gonna cuddle.

Wednesday, October 2, 2019

October 2nd

I have dry eyes and itchy skin but I caught five Giratina today so that’s pretty neat.

I dunno what I’m doing tonight. I’m like...too stressed to sleep.

Tuesday, October 1, 2019

October 1st

I am itchy ALL OVER. I think it might be a stress thing? I’m not actually sure. But it’s giving me anxiety. Like, I feel all out of sorts. I’m so nervous about this trip. And today at work was stressful. This is a tough week.

Monday, September 30, 2019

September 30th

Sure it's 90 degrees out, but it's not October yet, so...yeah no, it's too warm. Luckily the temperature both here and abroad is going to dip just before I leave, so I can actually pack the autumnal clothes that I was planning on.

Am I having stress dreams? Are they travel relatedly? Oddly enough, no they are not, it seems. Apparently I only have travel stress dreams when I'm stressed about other things, but then when I have real-life travel stress my dreams give me a break. Thanks for that.

Sunday, September 29, 2019

September 29th

I cleaned a lot today! Like, I also slept a lot. But then I was productive! I am totally having trip anxiety though. How does one sleep before a trip like this? I feel like I’m not going to have enough room for the stuff I want to bring. And I don’t like planes. Ugh. It’ll all be okay.

Saturday, September 28, 2019

September 28th

Today was fun! I played some Pokémon Go, then went to the art museum and went bowling! That’s some good fun weekend stuff. I like art museums! I really like discovering new art. Plus I can think of this as prep for Museumsinsel day in Berlin. Bowling was great too, even though I am not super good at it. It’s a good time though! I’ve said good a lot today. It was a good day.

Friday, September 27, 2019

September 27th

Y’all ever leave your German keyboard on and accidentally start to go to bägger.com? Just
Me? Okay.

Gonna play some PoGo this weekend and clean the house. Also get everything as ready as I can for my trip. The anxiety is finally hitting me! I’m excited though.


Thursday, September 26, 2019

September 26th

Today was pretty chill. Not much to report today. I did get some stuff from ModCloth though, and that’s always exciting. I like clearance-priced swimsuits.

Thank goodness tomorrow is Friday though.

Wednesday, September 25, 2019

September 25th

Less dental pain today, but I still can’t open my mouth all the way. But I’m definitely feeling better thankfully.

I hung out with a coworker after work and we watched the Lil Bub documentary from a few years ago and ate tacos. I also met her cats and we went for a walk. How nice is that? Just a good wholesome evening.

Tuesday, September 24, 2019

September 24th

I guess work was kinda okay today. But let’s be honest. The dentist sucked. I needed extra shots to get numb enough. My jaw hurt from being open so much. (Tbh it still hurts.) I felt like I couldn’t swallow or breathe, and because of how numb I was, that didn’t go away for several hours after I left. I was just like...freaking out, dissociating...having a bad time. And now I’m sore. I’m very glad to be done with that, and I am never doing that without sedation again.

Tomorrow will be better. 

Monday, September 23, 2019

September 23rd

What a Monday! I was super sleepy this morning and it was grey and rainy. But then the weather got nice and sunny! And I looked cute today. So there.

Dentist tomorrow! My appointment is at 2:30. Tooth-hurty. Har har har.

Sunday, September 22, 2019

September 22nd

Well, I caught some Tepig today. Walked around a lot. Apparently it’s supposed to rain again tomorrow which is kind of a bummer - I want slightly cooler weather but still sunshine, ya know?

I don’t even know what I’m doing this week! Other than work. Oh...I do have to go to the dentist. Maaan.

Saturday, September 21, 2019

September 21st

Y'all ever nap all day because it's raining? Yeah same.

I did get some groceries and did some laundry though. Oh, and I got my hair done! Why did I forget that was today? I'm all over the place.

The travel stress dreams have commenced. My trip is soon. I'm so excited.

Friday, September 20, 2019

September 20th

Today was a sleepy day! And I wore a cozy perfume and it made me even sleepier. Now I’m in bed with Cas because he is a primo cuddle buddy.

Did Pigeon learn how to get to the shelf above my washer and dryer? Yes, yes she did.

It’s raining now.

Thursday, September 19, 2019

September 19th

Happy birthday to my dad! Happy day to me! I am eating a Rice Krispies bar in bed. This is my Thursday night.

A long week calls for a good weekend but I’m not yet sure what I’m doing. I mean I already went to the zoo this week. Maybe the Renaissance festival? Is that still going on? Maybe eating some yummy food?

Wednesday, September 18, 2019

September 18th

Work was a little slow and involved a lot of coughing today, but I made it through. Tonight was pretty much just napping and a shower. Watched some YouTube videos. Hung out with the cats. Pretty typical Wednesday night I guess.

Tomorrow I’m hanging out with a coworker friend after work and we’re gonna watch the Lil Bub movie! Also I get to meet her cats which is exciting. Hopefully it’s an easy workday.

Tuesday, September 17, 2019

September 17th

I went to the zoo today! I’m still sniffly and I have a bit of a sore throat, but getting out of the house really helped. Plus I saw some real cuties like Tasmanian devils. Those little guys are great.

Back to work tomorrow! I hope the rest of the week is easy.

Monday, September 16, 2019

September 16th

It’s finally Unova time in Pokémon Go! And my ass got two shiny friends today.

Anyway, I have a cold. It is not, in fact, allergies. So I’m having a restful evening.

Sunday, September 15, 2019

September 15th

Consider: Pokémon Go Community with so...many...shiny...Turtwig. I got ten of them! I love them all!

I am still ultra sniffly. It is incredibly annoying. Gonna try a hot shower again, hopefully that helps.

Saturday, September 14, 2019

September 14th

Brad and I played a new board game tonight! It’s called Planet and it’s super fun.

I got to meet some cute puppies today! Including a schnoodle and a shiba inu! The schnoodle was really cuddly. I want a dog! But I also love my cutie kitties.

My allergies are a mess right now. I am a sniffly, snotty lady.

Friday, September 13, 2019

September 13th

I have some sort of pulled muscle or pinched nerve or whatever in my upper left arm/shoulder and it is painful and annoying.

Cas did well at the vet today! He has some antibiotics to take, but he should be back to normal soon. I feel bad for him though, poor guy. He's a little more lethargic than usual but he seems to be okay. I gotta give him extra kisses!

Thursday, September 12, 2019

September 12th

Well, Cas is going to the vet tomorrow morning. He's got a UTI. He seems to go longer and longer between getting them, but I wish the urinary health food he ate was enough to just keep him healthy all the time. But I'm also glad that I know what to do and what to expect when he gets an infection. (Answer: don't go to the emergency vet unless paying many hundreds of dollars is an option.)

I think I'm going to just have a chill night and watch some Chrono Trigger before bed.

Wednesday, September 11, 2019

September 11th

Bought some pants. Ate a nice sandwich at Jason's Deli. Got some shiny friends in Pokémon Go.

I am sleepy. But today was pretty all right. Not too much to report!

Tuesday, September 10, 2019

September 10th

I thought it was Wednesday today! Whoops!

I have new glasses! They are basically coke bottle glasses but from what I can tell they’re better than my last pair, so I’m pretty pleased.

It’s chilly in my apartment!

I GOT AN A ON MY FINAL PAPER WOOHOO

Monday, September 9, 2019

September 9th

These new meds are really giving me a weird stomach. I was pretty cranky and sore today at work. Also I slept weird on my arm and my shoulder hurts.

I’m watching some travel vlogs! I have pretty much everything booked now - I booked my Rome tours and all of my train tickets! I am broke and happy.

Sunday, September 8, 2019

September 8th

Hi all! My new meds (Buspar) may have made me feel a bit off and odd today. I was so sleepy and I just felt...nothing? I didn’t feel tired, but I cared so little about getting out of bed that I just...didn’t. Like until 3 pm or something. Hopefully this is just temporary starting-off sort of stuff. This stuff is supposed to help my anxiety so I can understand that there may be some sedative-like effects. But I don’t want to be in some anhedonia bullshit either, so we’ll just have to see how things go! Fingers crossed!

Saturday, September 7, 2019

September 7th

In one month I’ll be in France! Holy shit!

Today was a lot of sleeping. Then I returned a few things. And now I’m sleepy again.

Plans for tomorrow still TBD, but I did briefly get to see my mom and her husband Tom today which was really nice.


Friday, September 6, 2019

September 6th

Please excuse the technical hiccup - my original post from September 5th seems to either not have gone through. So here's a less exciting replacement post instead! I am fairly certain I remember blogging last night but now that I don't see my post, my brain is like "maybe you did forget!" even though just this week I've been thinking about the blog more often than usual. So I guess I'm ultimately not sure. But also, that's okay. Like I said, I'm pretty sure I did write up a post. And mobile posting is not always the most...technically advanced, so I wouldn't be surprised if I closed the window before it finished posting and the whole thing just got eaten by Blogger. Ah well.

---

Update: I reloaded the Blogger homepage, and lo and behold, my post from yesterday is there. I am incredibly confused but also glad that I didn't forget to blog.

Anyway, I finished my final paper for psych class! I sure hope I did all of the APA formatting correctly. That's one of the trickiest parts, honestly.

Also, I had a very sleepy day but I'm glad to be able to enjoy the weekend ahead. My glasses are ready to be picked up, so I think I'll do that tomorrow!

Thursday, September 5, 2019

September 5th

My psych appointment went really well! I’m so excited! She was really friendly and helpful, and I’m looking forward to having her as my psych doctor.

Also I got Starbucks, and ALSO I finished my final paper for my psych class. I need to reread it tomorrow, but it’s basically done and I’m super relieved and pretty proud of myself too!

Wednesday, September 4, 2019

September 4th

I spent too much money at Ulta! I do plan on returning one or two things, but I did actually need a few things. Like a travel hairbrush! I’m also trying to figure out under eye concealer and mascara and setting powder because my makeup has been whack lately.

I have a psych appointment at a new place tomorrow! I hope it goes well.

I had some pineapple upside down cake cheesecake today. It was good.

Tuesday, September 3, 2019

September 3rd

I did it y’all, I went to the dentist! I have a sore mouth but I am okay!

I don’t know what I’m doing tomorrow. I guess...um...work? Yeah!

Monday, September 2, 2019

September 2nd

Today was a pretty chill day! Dinner was a little subpar (Max & Erma's), but otherwise things were good! I cleaned and got a new furnace filter and also cried laughing watching Jenna Marbles' dogs in content aware scale so like...it was a good evening. Not super keen on getting up early tomorrow, but I'm glad to have have a long weekend!

Sunday, September 1, 2019

September 1st

Well, today was rainy. But I did visit a cat shelter and play some Pokémon Go. And I had ice cream.

Tomorrow is a holiday so no work. And I don’t really have any plans, either. I guess I’ll clean around the house. (It’s supposed to be rainy.) But hey, long weekend!

Saturday, August 31, 2019

August 31st

Oh, I’m excited! I got some new shoes, a bra that ACTUALLY FITS and I found a shiny Buneary in Pokémon Go. Now I’m gonna eat some ice cream. Despite having a headache for most of the day (including right now), it’s been a good start to the weekend. Oh, and I met a cute chow puppy too!

Friday, August 30, 2019

August 30th

My performance review at work went well and then the power went out and we all got to leave early. It was a good day. Now I’m playing Danganronpa 3 and I am SO excited for the long weekend. No real plans yet, but I’m sure I’ll think of some!

Thursday, August 29, 2019

August 29th

SO CLOSE TO A LONG WEEKEND

I have my performance review tomorrow and I am freaking out. We are two CBD gummies in and my anxiety is probably still going to keep me up late. Hooray.

But I have some cute fluffy cats and I had soft serve ice cream.

Wednesday, August 28, 2019

August 28th

Well, I had a productive evening. I returned a bunch of stuff at Sephora and I bought some pants for traveling. Now I'm trying to get myself to the shower but I'm sleeeeeepy. But I also know I'll be too sleepy in the morning to shower. I should really make it a habit to shower right after work but like...I'm kinda lazy sometimes, you know?

Also I'm low-key looking for a makeup cleansing balm. But like...not a crazy expensive one. I'm also kind of looking for a good face wash that isn't crazy expensive. I love my Youth to the People one but it's so damn pricy.

Tuesday, August 27, 2019

August 27th

Today was slow and rainy. Like, very rainy actually. I wore the wrong shoes. I also had some weird gas(?) cramps for most of the day. So overall not the greatest day, but tomorrow is supposed to be better weather at least.

I just wanna cuddle cats.

Monday, August 26, 2019

August 26th

Hello! Being in my apartment is making my eyes itchy and my nose sniffly and I don't know what it is or what to do. I guess I'll vacuum tomorrow and see if that helps. But hey, at least I have tissues now.

The weather right now is grey and rainy and it's not doing much for my motivation. Work was super slow today. Hopefully things pick up later in the week.

Sunday, August 25, 2019

August 25th

I definitely had one of those days where I slept for like twelve hours but then was super productive in the afternoon. I cleaned a bunch (though I didn't get around to vacuuming), did a lot of laundry, steamed some clothes, all that jazz. I even washed my duvet cover! This week I have to mail back some returns and hopefully schedule a dentist appointment, but otherwise I don't think I have too much going on. I guess I have to clean my makeup brushes too...but that's not particularly exciting.

Saturday, August 24, 2019

August 24th

I went all the way to the Cincinnati Zoo and back today! That’s like four hours of driving! But honestly it seemed shorter than that. I just listened to Hadestown, which is really good! And totally stuck in my head now. The zoo was laid out kinda poorly but it had some rad animals. And I got to see my mom which was great!

Tomorrow I’m gonna sleep in and clean!

Friday, August 23, 2019

August 23rd

Hey all! I got my hair cut! And it's Friday! My mom really wants to go to the Cincinnati Zoo tomorrow, so I guess I'm driving to Cincinnati tomorrow. I will be listening to the Hadestown soundtrack on the way there.

Thursday, August 22, 2019

August 22nd

Sleepy day and sleepy evening. And I have to get up a little early tomorrow so I can make a CVS run before work. Gotta grab a “congrats on your baby” card for a coworker. I was going to do that tonight but it is late and even though I napped, I’m still tired.

School is going well though!

Wednesday, August 21, 2019

August 21st

Moderately busy work day, but nothing crazy. Just a Wednesday.

I got two new perfumes from a swap today! I received Albatross (House of Matriarch) and Uomo (Valentino) and I am stoked. Also yes, Uomo is a men's fragrance. Technically. But I like it!

No clue what I'm doing tomorrow outside of work really. I guess mailing out perfume for another swap maybe? It's going all the way to Hawaii!

Tuesday, August 20, 2019

August 20th

I am a sleepy lady tonight! I just wanna cuddle my cats, you know? I did have some oatmeal though. That was a good choice.

I just want a plain white shirt. Where do I get that? Like not a cheap one though.

Monday, August 19, 2019

August 19th

Oh, what a Monday. I couldn't type or even really think at work. For no real reason, just...sleepy brain I guess.

My eyes were also particularly dry today, and I've been taking steps to prevent that. Contacts out at night. Humidifier on. Eye drops. All that jazz. I'm excited for my new glasses to come though!

Sunday, August 18, 2019

August 18th

Matsuricon was really fun! I saw a fantastic panel with a guy from the Pokémon anime localization team and watched some terrible episodes from the first Danganronpa anime. There was a lot of good cosplay and good energy all around though. And I got some yummy Starbucks. 

Laundry is in progress! 

Saturday, August 17, 2019

August 17th

Hello from Matsuricon! It is late and I’m going to a panel about hentai. I am wearing a Bowsette ahegao shirt. We are feeling lewd tonight folks.

Tomorrow there’s a Danganronpa event! I’m pretty pumped.

Friday, August 16, 2019

August 16th

Well hey there cuties!

I was thinking about this blog last night, and I realized that it’ll be really cool to show this to my kids someday. Like hey, here’s ten years of your mom’s life. Have fun. I think I want to get the whole blog printed in a book actually - well, two books since it’s big. Like 2010-2014 then 2015-2020. What a cool thing to own!

Thursday, August 15, 2019

August 15th

I am feeling very heard and very validated. I put off seeing an optometrist for literally years, for several reasons. If you dig back into the archives, you will know that my last pair of glasses was kind of a failure. I felt that the prescription was too strong, and when I wore them I got this terrible fish bowl effect. The salespeople at LensCrafters assures me this would go away and I would get used to it. I even tried switching frames. And of course, it did not work. I was discouraged because they didn’t seem to care that I couldn’t function with those glasses. And when your prescription is crazy high like mine, glasses are not cheap.

I brought in two pairs of glasses to my optometrist today - my LensCrafter disaster pair and the pair that I have had since literally high school, because I can actually see out of them without getting dizzy. I explained my situation and why I had both pairs. She tested my eyes. She was friendly and competent and explained what she was doing. And she told me that when she looked at my eyes, the prescription I needed was in between both pairs. As in, it’s true that the LensCrafters pair was too strong. To have a doctor tell me that I was right and the previous folks were wrong felt amazing. I didn’t feel judged for waiting to come in. She was patient with me, and she got me a new prescription for my contacts too, since those were wildly overdue for a change (though not as bad as my glasses). I’m just happy that I am hopefully going to finally have a pair of glasses that I can actually wear again. It has been so, so many years since I have had a current, up-to-date pair.

(And of course because I got lenses, glasses and contacts and my vision insurance is pretty bare bones, I paid like $500 and I feel hella broke now. Ah well!)

Wednesday, August 14, 2019

August 14th

Snack time!

I was actually productive this evening! I went out and ate dinner and returned stuff! Good for me!

It does feel like this week should be over soon than it actually will be. I might also be going to a con this weekend? I have no idea.

Tuesday, August 13, 2019

August 13th

It was a long day and my god I was sleepy when I got home from work. Like, more sleepy than I should have been. So...I napped. I feel better. My head is a little clearer. I've been having nighttime anxiety a lot again recently, so even nights like last night where I sleep with no cats in the room can make me sleepy the next day because I had to distract myself from my own thoughts until 2 AM or something.

Now I'm eating a PB&J and watching YouTube and having a chill time. Shower soon since I just put on a sulfur face mask.

Monday, August 12, 2019

August 12th

I think I drank too much LaCroix or something, I feel like I have bubbles in my throat.

Today was productive if nothing else! I got a ton of schoolwork done and did a lot of work-work as well. However, my eye hurts! I feel like I strained it somehow. Just the one though. My eyes are also crazy dry lately, so I'm thinking it may be time to bite the bullet and go to an optometrist to see about getting a new prescription for both my glasses and my contacts. And also see if we can do something about my dry eyes.

Sunday, August 11, 2019

August 11th

Today was fun! I hung out with a new friend and we got pizza and watched Queer Eye. It was super chill and I’m feeling pretty content. Back to the grind tomorrow!

Saturday, August 10, 2019

August 10th

I got new sandals, and I also got a purse for my trip! Now I’m eating ice cream and playing Danganronpa. Oh, and seeing Ace’s owner was really nice too. I’m glad I was able to meet her.

Friday, August 9, 2019

August 9th

I really ought to wash my face and all that but...I’m sleepy. And I did take off my makeup at least. 

Tomorrow I’m quickly stopping by at a going away party for Ace’s owner, but other than that, I guess I just have a little schoolwork to do. What I’m saying is I’m gonna sleep in like crazy. I’m cool with that. 

Thursday, August 8, 2019

August 8th



Tempo by Diptyque
Notes include patchouli, mate, clary sage, pink pepper, violet leaf and bergamot

You've decided to go for a hike to a small lake in the middle of the woods. However, being a perfume lover, you spray on some Coromandel by Chanel first, then set off. The hike is long and the path takes you through dirt trails and low hanging trees. Eventually, you reach the lake. It's been a few hours and you're dirty, but the lake smells fresh. The mineral scent of pebbles wafts around you, and some sage near the edge of the woods dances in the wind. You can still smell the perfume you put on earlier, but it's faint now, just a background scent to all of the nature around you.

That's how Tempo smells.

Wednesday, August 7, 2019

August 7th

I am...sleepy. I didn’t sleep well last night. I gotta do better about that.

I’m having a kind of “I dunno” day/night. Hopefully tomorrow I’ll have more energy.

Tuesday, August 6, 2019

August 6th

Pretty good, standard day over here! The mood right now is craving melon. Honeydew, cantaloupe...that sounds very good right now. I probably need a snack.




Every Storm A Serenade by Imaginary Authors
Notes include salt water, vetiver, calone, eucalyptus, and spruce

This is an oceanic aquatic done right. The calone is present but not overbearing or overly synthetic smelling. This is fresh and somewhat masculine, with a unique roughness from the strong vetiver. But the salt water balances it quite nicely, so nothing feels out of place. This feels like a scent for men who like mainstream scents like Bleu de Chanel but want something a bit more unique without being too avant-garde. It would also suit a woman who loves aquatic scents but wants something a bit more unisex. Definitely one to consider if you want that fresh ocean scent with a bit of an edge.

August 5th

Sometimes you play Danganronpa "until the first investigation starts" which ends up taking like three hours instead of and hour or two and then it's late and you're sleepy and you just want to eat mint chocolate chip ice cream.

Work was better today. I don't like my second desk though. The monitors are too close and they give me a headache, especially on days like today when I'm looking at plan sheets and spreadsheets and trying to read super tiny text. I bought some blue light blocking glasses from Amazon when I got home. They were cheap so I don't know how good they are, but I can always return them if they aren't great. Otherwise, yay, cheap glasses!

Upcoming reviews of Tempo by Diptique and maybe more this week.

August 4th

Hey all! So, my date had to cancel. That’s a bummer. But I decided to go to an Irish festival! It wasn’t bad in and of itself, but it was incredibly hot with no wind or shade so I left early. Then I napped. Now I’m feeling better! I hope this work week goes better than the last. It should. Here’s hoping.

August 3rd

This weekend is good so far! I went to the zoo for Community Day and caught some shiny friends, and I had some Subway (with a great sugar cookie), and now Brad and I are playing Danganronpa 3! I also have a date tomorrow which is really fun and exciting. Thank goodness for a good day, I needed it after such a long week.

Friday, August 2, 2019

August 2nd

TGIF. Seriously. What a week. I’m so glad it’s the weekend.

Tomorrow is Ralts Community Day! And I have a date this weekend with a nice lady! And I might go to the zoo again!

Also I have a fragrance review to post!

August 1st

You know, I should have showered when I got home. That way I wouldn’t be in a position where I’m so tired I feel like I’m falling asleep but also needing to like, wash my hair. And shave my legs. And like...I just...I’m sleepy. This work week has been crazy. I have been busy every day, and not in the exciting or fun way. More like the oh my god is it time to go home yet way. Two days this week I haven’t taken a lunch break because I had to help with Lunch and Learns during the lunch hour. I’m not an engineer, so I don’t get PDH for stuff like that. I’m just there to help facilitate. Which means I don’t leave the office all day, which makes the days seem longer, except my days also feel short because there’s so much to do...I’m ready for the weekend.

July 31st

I was a little heavy-handed in my perfume application tonight. Hello Dzing!, I smell like a circus.

Work is a lot and school is a lot but I’m making it work. I even did more schoolwork tonight than I anticipated which is great. Tomorrow is probably going to be a busy day at work, but I’m going to try to finish up this week’s assignment too. It shouldn’t take too terribly long, but I definitely need to dedicate some time to it.

I’m in the mood to hang out with dogs.

Tuesday, July 30, 2019

July 30th

Work is a lot this week. I just want to like...do school work, but everything at work feels really chaotic. But I’m making it work.

There are two books I want to read right now and I can’t decide so I haven’t started either. But I’m going to! Tonight I’m going to read a bit of Circe by Madeline Miller. It comes highly recommended so I hope it’s good!

Monday, July 29, 2019

July 29th

Gel nail polish is not worth the trouble it takes to get off or the damage it does to your nails. Most of my nails are okay all things considered, they just feel terrible. I need to trim them.

I didn’t do much as far as school goes today, but aside from lunchtime being busy at work tomorrow, I’ve got some time to read and write.

Sunday, July 28, 2019

July 28th

I did go to the zoo today! Not til around 5 pm because I was being lazy, but that’s okay. It was honestly way too warm when I got there so going any earlier wouldn’t have been any better. But it cooled off and I ended up having fun! They have a crocodile skink now, which is like a tiny dragon-looking friend. I love them! I couldn’t really see the Tasmanian devils well unfortunately. The only one I could see was inside but there was a bad glare on the glass. Ah well, I just hope he was enjoying his sleep!

Saturday, July 27, 2019

July 27th

Today was good. I slept in a lot. I went shopping. I tried a new place (Shake Shack) for dinner. I played a lot of Pokémon Go. Now I’m just chilling. Tomorrow...zoo, maybe?

Friday, July 26, 2019

July 26th

Oh my god, I’m so glad this work week is over. This project planning stuff they’re training me on is so over my head. And it’s not that I’m incapable of learning it, it’s that I’m not being taught. I’m being told, “Here’s a spreadsheet with hours and a budget, put it in the system” except I don’t know my way around the planning program we use. I don’t know the lingo. I don’t know the difference between a phase and a deliverable. I mean, I kind of do, but not because anyone has TAUGHT me, it’s because I halfway figured it out. And interpreting the spreadsheets I’m given is a monumental task. It’s just a bunch of data and I have to decode it and parse out relevant info that I then out in a different program after I set up a whole project? I was never told I would have to do this stuff. Now I’m being told I need to do it and figure it out right now. It’s a lot.

Thursday, July 25, 2019

July 25th

Work is a good quiet place to do school. Which is why I stayed til 6pm tonight. I had to write a discussion post, and sometimes when I go home my brain gets sleepy, or at least goes out of work mode. So staying at work keeps my drive up! And having dual monitors is incredibly mice, too.

No plans this weekend still!

Wednesday, July 24, 2019

July 24th

Tracking the submittals we get at work helps me remember the date so much better than I used to.

I got to visit my old job today! It was really nice and nostalgic. But like...it also made me happy to not be in retail. I love the team there, it’s honestly a ton of great people. But the hours, the sales, the opt-ins for emails or credit cards or whatever...I’m okay with not dealing with those things right now.

I have no weekend plans! But I wanna see if I can do something cool like go on a date. Gotta find someone first. Gotta hit up Tinder. Trying to live my best single Pringle life here.

Tuesday, July 23, 2019

July 23rd

Work actually went by faster than I would have expected. I got some schoolwork done too. And I ate real meals for every meal today! However, my eyes are crazy dry and I keep sleeping super warm and waking up sweaty. I also have a headache that keeps coming back, possibly from sleeping weird. I wish I could afford a massage right now!

I have a few Barnes and Noble gift cards. I know some of the books I want to get but would also love recommendations!

Monday, July 22, 2019

July 22nd

I didn't want to have to take a full day off today, but I did. However, I am feeling better. I have a headache and some muscle soreness because I slept a bit weird last night, but I have eaten real meals today! Small ones, but man I needed that. I even bought some arugula! I forgot how bitter raw arugula is. But it made my sandwich a lot more fresh.

I don't want to go to sleep just yet even though I'm tired, because I'll totally wake up at some weird hour and not being able to get back to sleep. Plus I guess I'm doing laundry and dishes.

I got a HUGE piece of art in the mail today! Thank you to the lovely Heather Buchanan for the opportunity to own one of her original pieces at a discount. She is a great person and artist!

Sunday, July 21, 2019

July 21st

Well, I wasn’t able to do Community Day, but I did sleep and watch Fruits Basket today. I’m also doing a half day at work tomorrow because I am super tired. But I’m eating slightly more normal food again! Turkey, peas and mini pretzels! I’m craving scrambled eggs though.

Saturday, July 20, 2019

July 20th

I got my hair done! The toner wouldn’t take so I was there for a looong time. Then I came home and felt crappy so I napped, except I still feel crappy. Right now the struggle is being hungry and wanting to eat but not wanting to upset my stomach. So I’m having a calm evening in bed.

Friday, July 19, 2019

July 19th

Got my nails done, feeling kinda cute. Gonna get my hair done tomorrow and hopefully feel even cuter. Oh, and my wig for my MAGFest cosplay came in the mail today! It's cute too!

I can't believe my hair appointment is at 8 AM. It's the only time my stylist was available but like...wow. I need to sleep in. Oh well. That's what Sundays are for.

Thursday, July 18, 2019

July 18th

Mixed day at work. Some good some bad. Tried a new place for lunch that was pretty good. They specialize in chicken salad. Tonight has just been chill.

Tomorrow I’m getting my nails done and Saturday I’m getting my hair done. No occasion, just trying to look cute and whatnot. And tonight I’m going to try to get to sleep early!

Wednesday, July 17, 2019

July 17th

Oh man, I accidentally wrote the date wrong for yesterday’s entry and I thought I hadn’t blogged. We’re good though.

Today was a tough day. I was up late last night crying about some stuff, and then I woke up exhausted and was having a lot of trouble staying awake at work. Then after lunch I was more awake but I had a headache. I still do actually. But things are feeling better now, and school was good too. I’m going to try to get some good sleep tonight.

Tuesday, July 16, 2019

July 16th

I got lots of schoolwork done today! I also got my oil changed! Finally! Now it’s raining and I am sleepy.

Monday, July 15, 2019

July 15th

I took a personal day today. I was so tired from this weekend, and I also had a weird upset stomach yesterday after everyone left so I just decided to take a day to decompress a bit. It definitely helped, too. I feel better. I feel like I'm ready to go to work tomorrow. And I also booked a hair appointment for this Saturday which will help me feel even better! I like my hair, it just needs to be cut and the roots need retouched. Nothing drastic. No pink hair this time. I did like having pink hair though. I would totally do that again.

Sunday, July 14, 2019

July 14th

I am...very tired. It was a good weekend but a long weekend. I had a friend in town who stayed at my place so my sleep schedule is all out of whack, plus we were out doing stuff most of the time so I also was doing a lot of, well, doing. Which is great! We saw a movie, went to an art installation, played mini golf and more. So it was a fun time! But I feel like I need sleep even though I just napped. Here’s hoping work tomorrow keeps me alert!

Saturday, July 13, 2019

July 13th

Otherworld! Toy Story 4! Hanging out with friends! Big Saturday! Lots of feelings!

Friday, July 12, 2019

July 12th

Currently entertaining guests! Playing some Switch games! Small headache but going well! Yay weekend! Yeah!

Thursday, July 11, 2019

July 11th

Happy Thursday! Work was sort of on-and-off busy today. So was the weather. And then I took a nap. 

My friend Garry is coming into town tomorrow!
He and Brad and I are gonna hang out this weekend. Garry is a cool dude. With a cool name. 

Wednesday, July 10, 2019

July 10th

I did it! I did school! I took a quiz and got 100% and my little webinar went well and everything! I also learned that I did not, in fact, have to rent my textbook. It's available to use online. Oops. Luckily it was only a $20 mistake.

I need...to sleep. But first I need to shower. But I want to just nap. Must...wash...hair...

Tuesday, July 9, 2019

July 9th

I didn't have a good day again. I took a nap though and I'm feeling a little better at least. I'm not like fully in the depression hole anymore. It's getting better.

Monday, July 8, 2019

July 8th

Okay, so today wasn't great. Work was stressful. Little things kept going wrong, and then bigger things were going wrong, and oh my god starting school again is a lot. Maybe it's just how this course is organized but I felt like I had ten units of material thrust onto me all at once. Also I had to rent a textbook. (Which was only $20 so not the worst.) I was excited about school and now I'm stressed as fuck but hopefully I find a good balance soon.

Brad found me a shiny Shellder though.

Sunday, July 7, 2019

July 7th

Why does “less drowsy” Dramamine still make me so tired? I slept so much today. And I’ve had that same off-and-on headache I had yesterday. I think I’m just gonna be extra chill tonight. Do some good kitty cuddles. Watch some chill YouTube videos. That kinda thing.

Saturday, July 6, 2019

July 6th

Happy birthday to meeeeee!~

I got lunch with my dad at a German restaurant, then Brad and I went downtown and walked around, stopped at a tea place for dinner and did some shopping. It was a good day! But I’m definitely in need of some rest right now. I’ve got my PJs on and my face washed, I’m in bed, and I’m ready to relax.

Friday, July 5, 2019

July 5th

Happy birthday to my mom!

My dad is in town! We went to the mall and got dinner. Tomorrow we're going to hang out downtown! Hopefully the weather is nice. We're going to get German food I think!

I've been using Jergens tanning lotion. Only two days in and I finally can match my favorite foundation. (CYO Lifeproof in the lightest shade.) Hooray! I feel so summery!

Thursday, July 4, 2019

July 4th

Today was a sleepy day! I have to be at work early tomorrow, but it’s a short day at least. Then my dad and I are hanging out! Still trying to figure out what to do for dinner. We’ll figure it out though. I hope Pigeon likes my dad! Or at the very least says hi to him. Cas will be glad to see him. And so will I of course!

Wednesday, July 3, 2019

July 3rd

Yay, free day tomorrow! Although I'll definitely be cleaning since my dad is coming into town on Friday. Gotta be looking good around here. I should vacuum again.

I still don't really know what I'm doing for my birthday.

Tuesday, July 2, 2019

July 2nd

Yep, this work week is slow. But I have two desks now! It's very weird.

Setting up some more perfume swaps, hopefully! It's always exciting to find someone who is swapping something you've actually been wanting to try. Also casual reminder that I'm trying to sell like 50 perfumes so get at me bro.

Monday, July 1, 2019

July 1st

Happy July! I had a yummy burger today. And work was good! It's going to be a slow week. And I probably have to work this Friday which is a bummer. But hey, at least I don't have to do anything besides clean on Thursday. My dad is coming into town this Friday so that's really exciting! He gets to meet Pigeon!

Sunday, June 30, 2019

June 30th

My sleep schedule...is not correct. Two weeks of jury duty and long weekends really did me in. I knew it would. And here I am, not in bed yet. I have a longer day than I'm used to tomorrow and it starts earlier and ends later than jury duty. 8-5 jobs, man.

Saturday, June 29, 2019

June 29th

Today was a good, sleepy Saturday! I kinda just bummed around for most of the day, but I did go swimming which was really nice! It's been really hot here too.

Have a really awesome video featuring two awesome (and LGBTQ!) skaters.


Friday, June 28, 2019

June 28th

I went to Comfest tonight! I saw two burlesque shows! Both were sort of mixed...some good acts and some less good. But it was a good time! Dinner (bagel sandwich and smoothie) was also good, which is always nice. Food truck food can be a little mysterious.

I promise that perfume review is coming.

Thursday, June 27, 2019

June 27th

Jury duty was such a good experience. Not to be melodramatic and say it was "life-changing" but...it kind of was. It was so different than anything I've ever done before. There was such camaraderie between everyone, and it was run so well, and I learned so much. I really, really enjoyed it. I feel really lucky that I got to do it.

Wednesday, June 26, 2019

June 26th

I think I'm gonna miss jury duty. It's been so informative and cool, and even though I'm not besties with all the other jurors or anything, it's cool seeing a different group of people. And certainly different people than I normally hang out with too. This has been such a good experience. And tomorrow we get a pizza party!

Tuesday, June 25, 2019

June 25th

You ever take a three hour nap after jury duty? Just me? Okay.

I need to find better lunch options downtown. Maybe I’ll finally go to Subway tomorrow I love Subway.

Monday, June 24, 2019

June 24th

Jury duty is so fun you guys! I'm really enjoying it. I could do this every year, honestly.

HuniePop is good. I'm just saying.

Cas and Pigeon are also good.

Sunday, June 23, 2019

June 23rd

HAPPY BIRTHDAY CASTAMERE! He’s six years old today! I got him some wet food!

I went to a park with Brad today! We saw frogs, and possibly a crane! It was a big white bird, anyway. It was fun! And good exercise too. I need to do more of that, especially before my trip in October.

Saturday, June 22, 2019

June 22nd

Happy Saturday! I had a friend in town today which was fun. I may have introduced him to HuniePop. And then we played for like four hours. Oops.

I cleaned my apartment this morning and boy does it feel good. Good job, me.

No plans at all tomorrow! Hooray!

Friday, June 21, 2019

June 21st

I went to the zoo today! I saw some super up-close lions and birds and deer AND there are Tasmanian devils now! They’re so cute! Also kiwi birds are cute. They are a good shape.

Thursday, June 20, 2019

June 20th

I got to tour the Ohio Supreme Court today! There’s so much pretty marble and Art Deco goodness. I’d definitely recommend checking it out.

I think I’m going to go to the zoo tomorrow.

Wednesday, June 19, 2019

June 19th

Happy Wednesday! I met a really cool judge today. I don't know that I can really say too much about it since it was in the jury room, but he was a really cool guy. We've got some cool elected officials here in this city. I like that.

Tuesday, June 18, 2019

June 18th

Today was a little slow over at jury duty, but I did get to sit in on some cases as a member of the public as opposed to on a jury, so that was still interesting. And the judge let all of us on jury duty but not currently on a trial sit at her juror's bench anyway since the trials we saw did not request a jury, so that was neat! The afternoon was pretty slow though. I've been able to meet a few interesting people through jury duty though - I'd like to meet some more people within the group as well. How cool would it be to make a long-term friend through this? Here's hoping!

Monday, June 17, 2019

June 17th

Well I can’t imagine having too much to blog about the next two weeks...since I’ll be on jury duty the whole time and can’t talk about too much. But today was really good and I’m enjoying it! I just wish I didn’t have to deal with driving and parking downtown.

Sunday, June 16, 2019

June 16th

Chill day today for sure! Slept a lot, did some laundry, got a few things at the store. Junk food, but also fresh fruit so I think that balances itself out. Brad and I also finished Ultra Despair Girls!

Not much else to report today other than the fact that tomorrow is jury duty. But hey, it's basically a day off from work, so that's nice.

Saturday, June 15, 2019

June 15th

Happy Pride Weekend! Aside from the rain and gloomy weather, the festival was pretty good! I was I had gotten up early so I could have seen the parade, but I guess that’ll be for next year!

Time for some wholesome Ultra Despair Girls. And lots of sleeping tomorrow.

Friday, June 14, 2019

June 14th

PRIDE TOMORROW!

Today I...bought a shirt at Target. I am a creature of habit.

My stomach has been weird all week. Cramping and gas and all kinds of nonsense. Not sure why? Time of the month stuff? Not a clue.

I remembered to buy sunscreen!

Thursday, June 13, 2019

June 13th

Don’t forget to get a weird bloaty stomachache from Wendy’s!

I thought I planned out a sweet Pride outfit. Today I discovered the shirt I wanted to wear is gone. I don’t know where it went. But it’s not in my house. I tried looking for something new at the mall but didn’t have any luck. I’ll figure something out. 

Wednesday, June 12, 2019

June 12th

What a slow work day! I was able to play some Wordscapes though. I...don't know what I'm doing tonight or tomorrow.

Don't forget to find sunscreen in your bag after getting a sunburn because you thought you didn't have any sunscreen!

Tuesday, June 11, 2019

June 11th

I went on the road for work again today! Only about half an hour away, not even, but still. So much driving! Tonight I napped and uhh...yep! Watched some YouTube. Good adult-ing on my part.

I need Pride outfit inspo!

Monday, June 10, 2019

June 10th

Oh, Mondays. I did my orientation for school though! Like all of it...even though I had til July to do it. No procrastinating here! Do all the school! Now I don't have to worry about it anymore, which was the goal. Yay!

No plans for this week, not til the weekend anyway!

Sunday, June 9, 2019

June 9th

Well today ended up being a good day, despite my now-reddening sunburn. I went to the Columbus Art Festival, which was unexpectedly surreal. The last time I went to an arts festival was back in uptown Minneapolis 10+ years, and I went with my mom. I got a print there from an artist named Andy Van Schyndle, and I still have it - it's actually one of my favorite pieces of art I own. So imagine my surprise when Andy was also at this art fair! I nearly cried. I could never expected to see him again and get to buy more art from him. I even got to tell him I had (and love) some of his art, which was pretty cool and special. He's a really nice guy. (Check out his website!)

Saturday, June 8, 2019

June 8th

Today was a weird morning...kind of a downer. But I went out for Community Day and that was good! No new place for food, but maybe tomorrow. I did get a burger today, and caught a shiny Absol in Pokémon Go, so I’m feeling pretty good about that. Tomorrow: Arts Festival!

Friday, June 7, 2019

June 7th

Today was tiring. It was a lot of walking an not a lot of stopping. And it got warm outside.

This weekend...I have no idea, really. We shall see, I guess! New restaurant maybe?

Thursday, June 6, 2019

June 6th

You know what goes great with back pain? The fact that tomorrow I have to be on the opposite side of town at 8 AM to literally just walk around in the sun for a few hours for work. I am...not super thrilled about that. Also I don't have any sunscreen other than my facial moisturizer so I might just...put that on my arms? I gotta take care of my skin!

Wednesday, June 5, 2019

June 5th

My back...really hurts. My right shoulder blade feels all messed up. And I don't know how to fix it. I took a hot shower earlier and that didn't seem to help. But I can't afford a massage right now so...um. We'll see.

I saw Aladdin today. It was...not great. In what world did anyone decide that the Genie needed a human love interest? This one, apparently. Yikes. But um, the Sultan was good. He seemed like a good guy. And the colors were...bright? Yeah.

Tuesday, June 4, 2019

June 4th

Happy one year work anniversary to me!

Now time for back pain and insomnia! What a day!

Monday, June 3, 2019

June 3rd

Good evening! Today was a pretty, uhh...normal day. Went to work. Got Subway for lunch. That kind of day.

I want to go to the Columbus Pride festival/parade this year. But also I'm intimidated since I've never been to Pride and I don't like...have any LGBT friends in the area, which is a bummer. But I guess Pride is probably the best place to make friends like that, huh?

Sunday, June 2, 2019

June 2nd

I went to a really neat interactive art exhibition type thing today! It's called Otherworld and it's on the east side of Columbus. I would highly recommend it if you're ever in the Columbus area! I also went to a hot dog place called Dirty Frank's for lunch then visited a topiary park since it was super nice out today. It was a good Sunday!

Saturday, June 1, 2019

June 1st

Love a good late night Walmart run. Nice and surreal.

My anxiety was horrendous this morning so I just slept all day.

Friday, May 31, 2019

May 31st

Tomorrow is June! Tonight is Ultra Despair Girls! I ate at a little diner in a small town today and it felt very...American. Every part of it. It was kind of great, honestly. Very wholesome. (And greasy.)

Thursday, May 30, 2019

May 30th

Another sleepy night. Watching old Safiya videos. Prepping for another work trip tomorrow. It's going to be a busy morning. And I...just want the weekend to be nice and calm.

Wednesday, May 29, 2019

May 29th

Watching old YouTube videos after a nice nap. That's the evening. Another slow-ish day for me.

Kind of in the mood to find a new hand lotion. Suggestions?

Tuesday, May 28, 2019

May 28th

Well I’m a sleepy kiddo. It was stormy last night and the sirens went off so I stayed up. Today wasn’t too shabby though, aside from a mediocre microwave dinner. I think I’m just going to go to bed now!

Monday, May 27, 2019

May 27th

I slept an obscene amount today, but I made up for it by cleaning, like, everything. I also found $75 in Barnes and Nobles gift cards and a bunch of Starbucks gift cards as well.

Now for the real challenge - time to take a nice, long shower.

Sunday, May 26, 2019

May 26th

Brad and I saw Detective Pikachu! It was good! I loved it!

Now umm...hangout with Cas and do laundry. Yeah. And stay up late cause tomorrow it a holiday, hell yeah.

Saturday, May 25, 2019

May 25th

Brad is putting a ceiling light in my room! But not a hardwired one. Because apartments. I am really gung-ho about making my room look and feel nice. I’m happier when my bedroom is nice. I want my whole apartment to be finished and lovely but that is...expensive. I’ll get there!

Friday, May 24, 2019

May 24th

I pet a snake and a sheep today! Now Brad and I are playing Ultra Despair Girls. LONG WEEKEND, YAY!

Thursday, May 23, 2019

May 23rd

What a slow day today. But I got some new perfumes! Yay, swapping!

I think I'm just going to relax with the cats tonight.

Wednesday, May 22, 2019

May 22nd

Okiedokie, time to try out some new shower products.

I bought too many pants from Express today but at least I finally got the khakis I wanted.

Tuesday, May 21, 2019

May 21st

Pigeon's new favorite toy is a poster I left on the floor. Right now she's yelling at it.

Kinda just sleepy and in a weird mood today.

Monday, May 20, 2019

May 20th

You ever take a nap when you get home and wake up late because your alarm got turned off somehow? Like I am pretty sure I didn't go into my alarms and turn of my daily blog alarm yet here we are.

Today was busy. Also, I can really easily tell now how much worse my OCD tics are at work versus home, it's very weird.

I got two new perfumes in a swap today! Some nice vintage lovelies.

Sunday, May 19, 2019

May 19th

Well Game of Thrones was...it sure made me excited for the books, I guess.

I caught some shiny Torchics today! Yay!

Saturday, May 18, 2019

May 18th

Ultra Despair Girls tonight. I slept in so much today. Oh, and my cats are the best.

I went on a work trip today! Just about an hour away, but it was a pleasant drive. I saw so many animals!

Not much going on this weekend...just a haircut and Community Day!

Stupid anxiety.

I’m doing a bunch of perfume swaps though, which is exciting! Out with the old and all that. After meticulously packing a few boxes to go out, it’s time for a peaceful evening here.

Time to go put weird drops in Pigeon's ears!

Last night/this morning was rough. Anxiety is up. Way up. It's honestly just tiring and frustrating at this point.

More vacation planning today. I changed a few things around...gotta love fine-tuning. Also gotta love building in a day purely for resting. Because I’m me!

Slow work day, but this evening was fun. Brad and I hung out. He helped me hang some art. Now I'm just doing laundry and considering meandering towards the shower. I got a new razor. I'm gonna be so smooth.

Game of Thrones was something. I have a headache and anxiety. What a day.

So the expo today was underwhelming. And the food was like...really bad. But I went to the humane society with Brad afterwards so I still had a good day. Kitties and puppies and bunnies, oh my!

I also messaged the official Cinnamon Toast Crunch account on Twitter about a misprint on their box so uhh I hope I get some free cereal or something.

Today was definitely better than yesterday. And I looked cute, too! I’ve been watching some videos about Strasbourg, but now it’s off to bed so I’m rested for the Columbus Oddities and Curiosities Expo!

Today was a bad and stressful day. But I napped and now I'm going to shower.
