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.

July 30th

Work is a lot this week. I just want to 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!

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.

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!

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 Pok√©mon Go. Now I’m just chilling. Tomorrow...zoo, maybe?

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.

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!

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 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.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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 I need to sleep in. Oh well. That's what Sundays are for.

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!

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.

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

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.

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!

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.

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 sleep. But first I need to shower. But I want to just nap.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!
