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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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!

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!

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!)

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 Pok√©mon Go, so I’m feeling pretty good about that. Tomorrow: Arts Festival!

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?

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!

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.

Happy one year work anniversary to me!

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

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?

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!

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

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