December 29th

 Well hey there my friends! Long time no see! I just got in from checking the mail and my hands are chilly and typing is hard!

I don't have any particular reason for blogging today, other than it's close to the end of the year and I was thinking about how damn long it's been since I've said hello. We're, uh, still in the middle of a massive global pandemic. But you know what? I'm employed and have a roof over my head and all that. I moved back in September, and it was...something. The unit I was shown was more updated than the one I'm in now. My microwave is over 10 years old and cracked. And wouldn't you know, the management here kinda sucks. Lots of issues. 

I ordered a couch back in October that was supposedly in stock. It was not. It will be in stock in January. I have not had a couch in months. I would like a place to sit, please.

I've been with my new job for six months now, working almost exclusively from home. I go in twice a week to check the mail and that's it. But I live much closer to my new office now, so that's a huge plus.

I'm still in school and doing pretty well with that. Classes start up again next month on the 11th. School has been more work than actual work some weeks, so this should be fun - I'm taking a pretty easy-sounding elective this term though, so it should all be fine.

I'm glad this year ended up being the end of daily blogging. It was perfect timing, really. With my days in this pandemic being nearly the same almost every week day and not being able to go out and do anything, like, ever...I would have had the most boring blog ever. And it wasn't particularly exciting before, either. 

Here is a summation of all exciting things not mentioned yet that have happened this year:

I hung out with Brad a lot and we played video games and did a lot of chilling at my house. 

I've seen my mom like twice this year, and that's been nice. I like hanging out with her. We recently exchanged Christmas gifts.

Brad got me a bidet for Christmas and I like it.

I go grocery shopping a lot now.

The cats are doing well. They are cute and cuddly and I love them. Pigeon was supposed to be spayed ages ago but vets are crazy right now. She gets spayed next month, hooray!

I saw my dad for my birthday back in July. That was pretty chill, and also, I had a nice birthday. I'm 28 now, by the way.

Moved, got a new job, did more school.

Healthwise things are okay. It's been a year since I had a literal mental breakdown and went back on Klonopin. I've tried some new meds since then and none have helped, so I'm still just on the ol' Klonopin/Lexapro combo. 

We got Trump out of office which is like the best thing 2020 had to offer.

I'm sure I'm forgetting some things, but really, this year has been bizarre and repetitive and sad. COVID-19 is scary and still going on and the days blur together. Most people haven't seen their friends and families much if at all since this started. But we're getting through it and I'm hopeful that 2021 will be better. And hey, I'll check in next year too. 

Stay healthy, safe, and awesome, my friends.

June 17th

This past month has been a lot. I started a new job a week ago. School was difficult. There are protests going on around the whole world, and of course we're still in a global pandemic. Stress has been high, to say the least. Now I have three weeks off from school, and I'm slowly settling into working from home (except when I go to the office and check the mail...admin life, yo). I just wanted to say hi and give a little update, because it's been both odd and totally not odd to not be blogging. Times are weird right now. But I had Subway for lunch today, so it's almost a little bit normal too.

Wednesday, May 13, 2020

May 13th

Don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten the blog! It’s just that not much has been going on. Quarantine is sort of the same thing every day. Eat some oatmeal, play Animal Crossing, nap. That kind of thing. I did buy an exercise bike though! It should be here tomorrow I think! Yay!

Saturday, May 9, 2020

May 9th

Tomorrow is grocery day! I need lots of stuff! I wanna get hella blueberries. 

Today is just another day in quarantine. Video games and snacks, all that jazz. 

Thursday, May 7, 2020

May 7th

Ya girl crossed hella animals today. I’m tired and peckish! I’m gonna try and eat something healthy at least. And then I’m gonna watch the raccoon steam and go to bed!

Wednesday, May 6, 2020

May 6th

We’re spending the evening terraforming here! Paths are so much more fun than doing stuff with cliffs and rivers. 

Also I have a zit on my nostril, so that’s fun. 

Tuesday, May 5, 2020

May 5th

Terraforming in Animal Crossing is stressful, and that’s how I feel about today. Now I’m gonna eat junk food. 

Monday, May 4, 2020

May 4th

I was super under the weather yesterday! I didn’t sleep a wink the night previous so I felt sleepy and anxious and nauseous all day. It was so...bleh. But then I slept for like 12 hours and I’m feeling mostly better today!

Saturday, May 2, 2020

May 2nd

Did schoolwork. Tried a new perfume. (Citizen Queen.) Played hella Animal Crossing. 

Time for a snack and for bed. 

Friday, May 1, 2020

May 1st

Well I thought I blogged yesterday...whoops! This keeps happening! I was super sleepy last night, to be fair. Today I've just been working on school stuff, half of which doesn't seem to want to work on my computer. So that's super fun and great. I gotta write an essay that is absolutely dumb and inane and I don't want to. English 101 is...rough. Haha.

Wednesday, April 29, 2020

April 29th

Well, I guess I didn’t blog yesterday. Whoops! I don’t think I did much yesterday though. But today was a video game day! Some nice Animal Crossing and of course we had to throw in some stressful Danganronpa too, to even it out. 

...And now I’m gonna check Animal Crossing and go to bed!

I bought a Magic Bullet, by the way! SO EXCITED FOR SMOOTHIES

Monday, April 27, 2020

April 27th

I cleaned and organized my bathroom cupboards and linen closet today! Hooray! Productive! I also caught a coelacanth in Animal Crossing, so I’m happy. 

I decided to have a go at some self-tanning lotion, the gradual kind. It’s not a new bottle and I remember liking it before, but it smells stronger than I remember which is a bummer. So I’m wearing some D&G L’imperatrice to make things better!

Sunday, April 26, 2020

April 26th

My power was out for a few hours today! Sooo I slept. I was gonna shower, but it was dark and gloomy and that happened. But at least I did my schoolwork!

Saturday, April 25, 2020

April 25th

I bought so much freaking healthy food at the grocery store today! I’m so proud of myself! Except somehow the innocuous looking bag of lettuce I got had CILANTRO in it and I’m so mad about it. Now I gotta buy more lettuce. Who puts cilantro in lettuce? Who puts cilantro in anything? Stupid soap herb. 

Friday, April 24, 2020

April 24th

You know, just thinking about how I’m supposed to start my new job in a week. I...feel like that might not happen. With everything going on, and me being a non-essential worker, it seems too soon still. Maybe I can do some work from home. 

Pokémon Go event tomorrow...I’m gonna try and get out and do it! Outside is nice!

Thursday, April 23, 2020

April 23rd

Well...I didn’t really sleep last night. I was just awake, and then I played Animal Crossing at some point? Tonight I did a little homework. That’s been most of my day!

Wednesday, April 22, 2020

April 22nd

I went out and about this morning! I had to do a drug test for my new job, and then I had to go to the UPS store and post office. (And Fedex, but the one near me was close.) Ans then I got Subway! I was going to get groceries as well but that didn’t happen, so that’s a tomorrow thing I guess. Still, what a productive day!

Tuesday, April 21, 2020

April 21st

Just a sunny day with Animal Crossing and YouTube and napping! And nice perfume! (Freak by Illamasqua.)  And then I had mini quiche for dinner! 

Gonna probably go to Target and do some schoolwork tomorrow. Not many plans for this week! 

Monday, April 20, 2020

April 20th

I’m watching multiple videos about dog breeds. Dogs are so cool. I want one someday. 

Happy 4-20-2020, my dudes. 

Sunday, April 19, 2020

April 19th

I dunno man, I didn’t sleep last night...went to bed at like 10 or 11 am...woke up at 8 pm...just living that quarantine life, ya know?

But I’m doing schoolwork and I’m playing Animal Crossing! And eating oatmeal every day! And cuddling my kitties!

Saturday, April 18, 2020

April 18th

Today was a productive day! I even vacuumed! I cleaned most of my house, really. I also did some grocery shopping and took a long shower. Yay!

Friday, April 17, 2020

April 17th

I miss not being so tired all the time. I sleep so much these days. I want to be at least a little productive during all this - read some books, learn some skills, whatever - but I’m just sleepy and unmotivated dang that’s super frustrating. 

I sampled some $500 perfume today though. 

Thursday, April 16, 2020

April 16th

Had pizza. Played video games. Slept a lot. What a day! I feel like I’m in college! Especially the part about how I didn’t do any homework today!

Wednesday, April 15, 2020

April 15th

The unemployment website literally isn't letting me login, but at least I got my stimulus check today. That's rent covered, so I feel pretty good.

Doing school on this laptop sucks, it turns out. My Microsoft Office license through school only lets me access the web versions of things like Word, so I might have to buy the program because the web version is missing some intuitive functionality and display aspects, like page breaks. I miss having a Windows computer with dual monitors...who am I?

I'm someone who is gonna go play Animal Crossing, that's who!

(Also, Blogger has removed the ability to let you edit posts from the mobile site. What the hell? I made a typo yesterday and I could un-publish my post but not edit it. Not cool.)

Tuesday, April 14, 2020

April 14th

Today I did homework and played Animal Crossing. How old am I again?

...I’m gonna play more Animal Crossing now. Gonna catch some bugs and fishies!

Monday, April 13, 2020

April 13th

It’s my first day of class! Can anyone explain what my professor is talking about?

I love higher education. 

Sunday, April 12, 2020

April 12th

I keep meaning to play more Animal Crossing but I want to do it in the daytime since it’s dark at night in the game but I’m more awake at night, you know?

Happy Easter! Stay safe and well my friends!

Saturday, April 11, 2020

April 11th

Grocery shopping was a success! Well except for my credit card declining because it was a “suspicious purchase” - how is $75 worth of groceries at a place I often get groceries suspicious? I am baffled. 

Started a new anime last night. It’s called Tower if God and it was a decently interesting premise so far, so I think I’ll keep up with new episodes. 

Why do my cats always come hang out with me in the bathroom? 

Friday, April 10, 2020

April 10th

Just another sleepy day here in quarantine. Watching some YouTube now. I think I might try to go to the grocery store tomorrow.

Thursday, April 9, 2020

April 9th

The weather was whacky today. Sunshine...then rain...then sun...then it was cold. But I went for a chilly walk to my mailbox!

I made pasta for dinner and now I'm just watching YouTube I guess. What a slow week.

Wednesday, April 8, 2020

April 8th

Well, I bought myself a copy of the new Animal Crossing game. I’ve only played about half and hour so far but it seems nice and relaxing.  I even caught a loach! I don’t really know what to do from here, but I’m sure I’ll figure it out in time. 

Tuesday, April 7, 2020

April 7th

Sometimes you fall asleep on your couch with all the lights on and sleep there until like 6:30 AM. And then there’s thunder and lightning but it’s actually just peaceful and nice. 

Did some paperwork for work today. Got annoyed at the unemployment website/system/all that jazz. You think they’ll ever pay me? I gotta call them tomorrow. 

Monday, April 6, 2020

April 6th

The good news is that My Hero Academia got better. I’m in episode four now. The bad news is that I’ve had a headache for basically two days straight now. I literally couldn’t sleep last night. It sucked. Luckily I’m decently tired tonight so I should get some good snoozing in.  

Sunday, April 5, 2020

April 5th

Well I didn’t do anything today. But now I’m watching My Hero Academia. I am really struggling to get on board with the protagonist. He seems...annoying. I hope he gets better. I’m willing to watch a few episodes though! People really love this show, so I think it’ll get good. 

Saturday, April 4, 2020

April 4th

Just watching more lewd anime tonight after playing Danganronpa. I’m sleepy!

I guess tomorrow I’ll...maybe do some laundry and dishes? Not sure yet!

Friday, April 3, 2020

April 3rd

I GOT A JOB! I don't start for literally another month, but that's okay! I'm so excited!

I drove to my new office today as well. Definitely a longer commute, but I move in a few months anyway.

A good end to the week!

Thursday, April 2, 2020

April 2nd

Oh you know, just doing a long Danganronpa trial all in one night. Now time to eat some quiche!

I am a sleepy Keepo!

Wednesday, April 1, 2020

April 1st

I'm getting really irritated with how tired I am during the day time. I'm just so unmotivated. I don't know if it's being stuck at home or my meds or a combo of both but it's just annoying.

I'm gonna watch some more lewd anime tonight because Interspecies Reviewers is fun and lighthearted and that's what I'm in the mood for today.

Tuesday, March 31, 2020

March 31st

My new shower curtain liner is literally stinking up my whole bathroom. It smells atrocious. And not like plastic, it's weird. And bad.

I got like...no sleep last night. I missed my Seroquel dose because I couldn't get it refilled yesterday, and I think that contributed. But now I've taken it (which means I went out two days in a row!) and watched some lewd anime (Interspecies Reviewers) so I'm going to try and have a super chill evening here.

Monday, March 30, 2020

March 30th

Great, Blogger changed their layout. Who is implementing this? Who did this?!

I’ve had kind of a cramped tummy for the past day so I’m hesitant to eat...even though I think I’m hungry? I don’t know!

It doesn’t feel like Monday. This is all so weird, ya know? Not having a schedule sure is something. 

Sunday, March 29, 2020

March 29th

I slept aaalllll day today. Fight me.

Telephone doctor’s appointment to get refills on my meds, and that’s about it! Just another week stuck at home for the most part I guess! Woohoo!

Saturday, March 28, 2020

March 28th

I keep wanting to do my makeup, but I also don't want to just sit around my house in a full face of stuff. Like...I enjoy doing my makeup and then going out and about, you know? But I'm not gonna go full glam for a trip to the mailbox.

I genuinely think I need to start recording when I eat, because time slips away and I don't know when I've had a proper meal versus a snack or a treat.

At least I've been good the past few days about really staying on top of my skincare. That can really get away from you.

Friday, March 27, 2020

March 27th

Brushing out a long wig when you can’t find your wig stand sucks. Does it look a little better? I guess! But it’s still not great. And I still have my curly one to do...that’ll be a job for another day.

I went to Kroger and Subway!!! Kroger sucked because too many people but Subway was like...the best. I wanna go there every day. Just like I used to!

I wanna eat ALL THE FOOD.

Thursday, March 26, 2020

March 26th

Cas smells so good right now!

Quarantine is boring y’all. I’m having trouble discerning when I’m hungry or just bored. It sucks. I did go for a walk but then it started raining so I jogged home in flip flops which was great.

I wanna go OUT and do stuff while I don’t have to work. I wanna go to the zoo and museums and animal shelters.

Wednesday, March 25, 2020

March 25th

Do I know what day of the week it is? Hardly!

My interview today went well! Third one with that company which is promising. But it’s not like anyone will be in any offices until April 6th at the earliest, so I’m just waiting!

Other than that, today I literally just finished the Danganronpa anime and ate and napped. That’s it. Oh, and I went for a little walk to check my mail! It was gorgeous outside today. I wanna go out and about!

I’m doing some hardcore face moisturizing tonight so I can wake up all plumped and hydrated!

Tuesday, March 24, 2020

March 24th

Ultra chill day! I watched more of the Danganronpa anime but dang it’s a bummer. I’m gonna watch some happy YouTube videos now. Besides, it’s dinner time! Sandwich and chips, hell yeah!

Monday, March 23, 2020

March 23rd

I mostly just chilled today! I’ve been falling asleep watching wildlife cameras, which is really neat. Last night there were raccoons, foxes, possums, skunks and deer! And what I really liked was since I fell asleep with it on, I got to wake up to bird songs! There isn’t a lot of that in my neighborhood, and this camera is pretty close to where I live, so it was like I had all my windows open and there were lots of birds! I hope I’m explaining that well. It helped me wake up at a good time too, that was probably the best part. I gotta do that again! (Also there were so many kinds of birds! I love birds.)

I had some fruit, which means I can have a cupcake. :)

Sunday, March 22, 2020

March 22nd

I made cupcakes with Brad today! Now to be socially isolated for awhile. I think I have an interview or a phone screen or something tomorrow. Possibly two of them? I gotta check my emails!

Saturday, March 21, 2020

March 21st

I was feeling pretty okay this evening, and then I worked out! Then I felt kinda yucky, and I’m sleepy for some reason even though I slept in and really shouldn’t be tired yet! Maybe caffeine crash? I dunno, it’s making me a little anxious. I’m also crazy thirsty!

So I’m just chilling and watching YouTube!

Friday, March 20, 2020

March 20th

Super in the mood to declutter my closet, but naturally there's nowhere to sell anything right now.

Pigeon has a vet appointment tomorrow, but that's about all I have planned! Today I had a video interview and a phone screen, and then I have another video interview and phone screen on Monday I believe. Woo!

Thursday, March 19, 2020

Wednesday, March 18, 2020

March 18th

I mostly slept today! But also I did laundry and dishes! And called my parents! I’m such a good kid.

Now I’m sleepy again because it’s been rainy all day. No plans tomorrow!

Tuesday, March 17, 2020

March 17th

So I stayed up late last night drinking Coke Zero and filling out job applications like an idiot and then I couldn't fall asleep until literally 9 AM. That's not right. So I'm trying to get back on track today. I had a phone interview that went well though! Now I'm doing laundry, so I'm being productive and everything. I don't think I have anything planned tomorrow though which is great. I'm gonna finish my laundry, maybe clean some more, like deep clean my house, and hang out with the cats.

I'VE HAD PIGEON FOR A WHOLE YEAR NOW!

Monday, March 16, 2020

March 16th

Always be prepared, folks! Like I've been saying for awhile, work has been crazy slow lately. I was feeling like it was, well, too slow. And hey, a couple of people got laid off today, myself included. But I also have several interviews already set up for this week because I started applying for new jobs a few weeks ago. Sometimes you just get a feeling, you know?

State jobs are postponing interviews because of COVID-19, but I'm still good for a couple of phone screens and such this week, maybe one or two in person. I did a video screen with like, a dream company today, so I really hope they like me!

Sunday, March 15, 2020

March 15th

I went grocery shopping twice today! And also out for dinner because all restaurants in my state are just like...closing for awhile. Figured I'd get some good food in before I have to make my own. I think I can still get Subway as long as I get it to go, though!

I hope tomorrow is a chill day at work...and also possibly the last day of in-office work for awhile. And in preparation, I cleaned my house today! I do need to vacuum and do laundry, but at least things look nice!

Now I'm gonna have some fruit and then dessert.

Saturday, March 14, 2020

March 14th

My doctor suggested changing when I take my Seroquel XR. I was taking 100mg at 6pm daily for a few weeks, but since I was often tired in the mornings, we decided to try taking it at like 10am instead. So I skipped my 6pm dose yesterday and took it at 10am today. Sounds great right? I mean, I was up until 5am and when I woke up at 10am I felt super nauseous and gross, and then I slept all day, but sure! I know it often takes a few days for bodies to adjust to stuff like this so I’ll see how I’m feeling tomorrow. I feel a little bit tired already tonight despite sleeping basically all day, so hopefully I’m back on track soon!

Friday, March 13, 2020

March 13th

Work was slow but sunny. I went to Target afterwards to grab my prescriptions and then went for a drive. And then my GPS crapped out and I was a little lost but mostly frustrated. And now I’m chilling at home! Might finish(!) reading a book tonight. Yes friend, I started that Ghost Hunters Adventure Club book last night and got halfway through it. Mysteries are fun!

So I guess with the COVID-19 stuff I won’t be doing much this weekend, but I’m thinking I’ll do a good cleaning around my apartment anyway. And spend lots of time with the cats!

Thursday, March 12, 2020

March 12th

Guess who got the very last loaf of bread at Target? How crazy is that!  Ow I’m munching on a fruit and nut bar because hell yeah healthy food on sale.

Looks like my work schedule might involve me staying home thanks to COVID-19...we shall see! Still due to go in tomorrow, at least!

Wednesday, March 11, 2020

March 11th

Making my way slowly but surely towards the shower. I just know it’s gonna hurt my knee.

Feeling pretty sleepy tonight. Kinda in the mood for ice cream. Super in the mood for the weekend!

Tuesday, March 10, 2020

March 10th

I went into work late today because my knee kept me up all night. This is some serious rug burn. It was all dry because I didn’t have Neosporin so I had just used alcohol and my skin got all dry and cracked and ouuuuuch. I gave it some breathing time after work and now it’s in a goopy Neosporin bandaid cocoon again. But it’s pain-relieving Neosporin, so that’s really nice!

Monday, March 9, 2020

March 9th

Guess who met the lovely Hank and John Green? This girl! Funnily enough, it was actually exactly eight years ago today that I met Alan Rickman, according to TimeHop anyway. I got verify that, because that’s crazy.

I’m mega sleepy tonight though, what a day! I’m loving this weather!

Sunday, March 8, 2020

March 8th

It was beautiful today! Even though there was an hour less of it, thanks DST.

Anyway I slept most of the day and it was peaceful and chill.

Saturday, March 7, 2020

March 7th

Happy weekend! I got my hair cut and I think it looks hella cute! I returned like $100 worth of stuff to Victoria’s Secret as well. Now I’m watching Brad play Pokémon Black for the first time! Yay!

I’m in the mood for a sandwich!

Friday, March 6, 2020

March 6th

You know, despite working closer to 25 hours a week lately instead of my normal 40, there certainly isn't a lot to do at the office right now. I thought my days might be extra busy, but they aren't. It's becoming a lot harder to get motivated to go into the office when I know I'll get there, crank out my work, and then like...sit there for a few hours. I know it's a slow time of year though. I'm ready for things to pick back up!

Thursday, March 5, 2020

March 5th

I decided to try out ThirdLove bras. I bought five different styles to the tune of way too much money, but I’m just hoping to find a style I love, not necessarily keep all of them. 

I actually took a nap today! I haven’t done that in awhile! I already forgot my dreams though. (Though last night I dreamt about using sriracha sunscreen and my ten year high school reunion.)

I’m so happy the weather is getting nice again!

Wednesday, March 4, 2020

March 4th

March forth my friends!

I cleaned my makeup desk today! I still need a good mirror and good lighting, but it’s finally all tidy again.

Work is slow this week. But hey, I’m getting my hair cut this weekend and meeting the Vlogbrothers next week!

Tuesday, March 3, 2020

March 3rd

You ever try on tons and tons of bras at Target and literally none of them fit? Yeah same. I’ve got an uncommon bra size and weird tits apparently.

Tonight is a night for chicken nuggets and mashed potatoes. I accidentally typed “nuggest” just now. That’s okay.

Monday, March 2, 2020

March 2nd

Well, today was a Monday! I love that the weather is getting warmer but man, I'm ready for sunshine. Tried some more Wooloo egg hatching tonight...no luck yet! Gonna have a sandwich and go to bed I think, buuut also kitty cuddles.

Sunday, March 1, 2020

March 1st

Happy sleepy Sunday! I ended up staying in and having a chill day today. Might crack a window tonight though, it’s nice out! I hatched some more Wooloo eggs as well, but no shiny yet. Soon I hope!

Saturday, February 29, 2020

February 29th

HAPPY LEAP DAY!

Ya girl is just watching Pokémon videos on YouTube tonight. I am freshly showered and shaved so I’m feeling nice and clean.

Hoping for sunshine and a fun day tomorrow! And also I gotta check my mail.

Friday, February 28, 2020

February 28th

I went to the Wild vs. Blue Jackets hockey game tonight! Minnesota totally kicked ass (5-0) so it was a good game for me. Now I’m feeling a bit hungry and also pretty sleepy. I don’t know what I want to eat though. Snaaacks.

Thursday, February 27, 2020

February 27th

I am sleepy and hungry tonight. Work was long. I did inventory at work today. And no, I’m not back in retail. I also scanned legal documents what a day. But I got Subway!

Wednesday, February 26, 2020

February 26th

Work sucked today, the weather is grey, but Brad and I hung out so I feel better. I just had chicken nuggets as well. Oh, and I bought three pints of ice cream.

Tuesday, February 25, 2020

February 25th

Couldn’t fall asleep last night. Having energy between 8pm-2am is super frustrating, especially since I’m always way super tired when I need to get up in the morning, even if it’s like 10 or 11 am. I’m gonna chat with my doctor about it tomorrow.

I want SUNSHINE!

Monday, February 24, 2020

February 24th

A slow day at work today. But in a frustrating way, not a chill way. Sigh.

Here, I made this!


Sunday, February 23, 2020

February 23rd

Well if it’s not blogging, it’s Duolingo - gotta keep up that’s streak baby! That and TimeHop. My TimeHop streak is over a thousand.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRAD! We got Turkish food for dinner! I like their bread!

Saturday, February 22, 2020

February 22nd

Slept in then walked around outside in the sun. Aside from a contact lens malfunction, it was a really nice evening!

Tomorrow is Brad’s birthday!

Friday, February 21, 2020

February 21st

Today was extra chill at the office. I did some more German on Duolingo, then talked to someone in German on Reddit!

Aside from being a little chilly and having a tiny headache, I think tonight will just be nice and calm. Might have a little snack before bed. That’s about that!

Thursday, February 20, 2020

February 20th

Slept in today, had a reasonably busy/normal work day, and just felt pretty good.

Also just ate ice cream. Time for YouTube and some cozy sleep with the cats!

Wednesday, February 19, 2020

February 19th

It occurred to me earlier today that I no longer have to blog every day. Like, I did the tens years every day thing. My recent posts have been pretty boring. Yet I feel like until I wrap things up, the daily thing has to continue. That's silly though - at this point, I can say, "Hey, I blogged every day for ten years!" and posting sporadically now doesn't change that. I did the thing! But I still feel like I should blog every day. I'll give some more thought to it. Maybe on days where I'm sleepy I won't. I know it would be nice to have something good and positive here every day. But I also need to realize that it's okay to only blog about the extra cool stuff too! Both of these are good and valid, so I shouldn't feel bad about doing either. But here I am tonight again, though at least it's because I'm giving my thoughts and writing a decent post!

Not a full perfume review, but I've tried a few good ones lately. Amouage Reflection is really nice and fresh and green.

February 18th

Slow work day today! And then I napped after work. So it’s a chill day.

Gonna watch some YouTube and eventually take a nice lil shower as well. Might play some Pokémon too!

Monday, February 17, 2020

February 17th

I’m sleepy tonight so I’m blogging early! Currently having some nice chicken nuggets for dinner, though I forgot I only have four left, and I was definitely feeling like it was a five nugget night tonight. Ah well!

Work was good and a bit slow, and it went from sunny to grey by the end of the day. So now we’re just relaxing!

Sunday, February 16, 2020

February 16th

Oh hey, I went for a walk today! And it was sunny! Also chilly, but that’s okay!

Then I bought groceries and spent a few hours in front of the computer. You know how it goes.

I love Kirby and the aesthetics of Kirby games. That’s the thought of the evening.

February 15th

I went to the mall again today, this time with Brad! Caught up with some old coworkers, wandered around, you know how it goes.

I was hoping to hang out with a friend who was visiting from out of town but I kinda slept most of the day and we didn’t plan things well, and then I needed to shower.

No plans tomorrow! I hope it’s sunny!

Friday, February 14, 2020

February 14th

Took my Klonopin at like 8 am instead of noon. It was also sunny. These forces combined to make a good work day! I even went to the mall afterwards! It was a lot, but I got some stuff from Bath and Body Works (soap, hand sanitizer, cat scent things) and some undies from Hot Topic. Almost bought stuff at Pink/VS but there was a better selection online sooo I did some online shopping when I got home. Might have also grabbed some sale stuff from Hollister/Gilly Hicks as well.

I bought tickets to see (and meet) Hank and John Green next month! Aside from the $40 in ticket fees, it was a reasonable price (and ticket proceeds go to charity) and I’m super excited!

Thursday, February 13, 2020

February 13th

2.5 hours at the front desk today out of the four hours that I worked...so a pretty easy day, aside from struggling to lift a 20 pound set of plans.

Feeling a little wiggly tonight. A bit lightheaded after my nighttime meds. Just had some chicken nuggets, not sure if I’m up to showering tonight or if that’ll be a tomorrow activity.

Just watching some Paper Mario content on YouTube tonight. Can you beat the whole game without leveling up? Yes, you apparently can. I love it.

Wednesday, February 12, 2020

February 12th

Half of my work day today was a meeting, which actually wasn’t bad. It keeps me focused on something. But our meeting room was chilly!

I got energy around 8 pm again! What funk!

I should shower. I’m feeling unmotivated. But I got new shampoo and conditioner!

Tuesday, February 11, 2020

February 11th

I think my new meds are doing something weird to my sleep schedule. I keep getting energy around 8pm. I’m also quite sensitive to light and lightheaded as well.

Gonna try to sleep a little earlier tonight. We’ll see how it goes!

(YouTube for now, though.)

Monday, February 10, 2020

February 10th

I have been sleepy all day! I took a nap after work and I got up to eat dinner! And I’m still sleepy! So sleepy! New meds I’m guessing. Just gonna try to go to bed early tonight. Also might try caffeine tomorrow.

Cas was the best cuddle buddy during my nap though. I woke up and he was my little spoon!

Sunday, February 9, 2020

February 9th

Hi friends! I spent several hours hatching Wooloo today. No shiny Wooloo yet, but I got a shiny Garbodor from a surprise trade! I love him!

I’m just chilling and I’m gonna have some ice cream. That’s my evening!

Saturday, February 8, 2020

February 8th

Today was a sleepy day! My meds seemed to do well though, I slept soundly and don’t feel anything weird today, so that’s good! Gonna try again tonight and just keep at it!

I listened to music while laying in bed and watching the snow fall today. It was super peaceful. Good mix of Snow Patrol, Pink Floyd, and Ludovico Einaudi. (And a little Nightwish.)

I’m trying to hatch a shiny Wooloo! It’s the first time I’m actively trying for a shiny! No shiny charm but I have the oval charm and I’m using the Masuda Method, so we’ll see how it goes. I’ve hatched maybe 75 so far. Woohoo! Wooloo!

Friday, February 7, 2020

February 7th

Work wasn't too bad today! I had a meeting/training for two hours, then it was just a pretty normal afternoon. Then I went home and slept, like hardcore. Didn't even hear my phone ring or anything.

I'm in the mood for frosting and sprinkles.

Thursday, February 6, 2020

February 6th

Work was slow, but Brad and I got Wendy's for dinner and honestly it made me feel a lot better. However, they have made the chicken nuggets in kids' meals smaller and that bothers me. Now I gotta order a real chicken nugget meal like an adult? What's up with that?

Today feels like Friday. It is not. I have had a long week and I am ready for a restful weekend.

The CVS pharmacy inside the Target by me is so many leagues and scores better than the CVS I was using previously. I'm super stoked about this.

Wednesday, February 5, 2020

February 5th

I’m still feeling off today. Lightheaded and anxious. And sleepy. Haven’t started my new med yet because of these tummy troubles...I don’t want to be sick and then possibly have side effects. Lower back is still not great, and my mattress doesn’t feel like it’s helping. I might try to sleep with a pillow under my back tonight. I can’t tell if I’m anxious because I’m sleepy or sleepy because I’m anxious. Also my eyes are dry and it’s making my vision weird and that’s freaking me out too.

I’m just going to have a super chill evening. Kiss some cats. Watch some YouTube.

Tuesday, February 4, 2020

February 4th

Today was grey and rainy, but I went to work! I still have lower back back, and my gastrointestinal track is out of whack. Sometimes my stomach hurts and I’m bloated, sometimes I’m really hungry, then that doesn’t sit right with me, but then I’m okay again. The lower back stuff isn’t helping but it doesn’t feel related. It feels like I strained a lumbar muscle or something.

Played some Pokémon tonight. Did some more surprise trades. Ran around. Caught some new friends.

Tomorrow is an early day at work because of a mandatory meeting. And I have to stay until 5 as well. It’s gonna be a long day, but it’ll be fine. I can take a lunch break in the middle!

Monday, February 3, 2020

February 3rd

The weather was so lovely today! My back is still out of whack, but I saw my doctor today. We’re gonna try a new med! 5 in 5 months! I hope this one is good and gets me back on track.

I need to do laundry.

Sunday, February 2, 2020

February 2nd

The weather way so nice today! It’s also a super palindrome day! 02/02/2020! I love it.

I went out and about for Pokémon Go today and caught some cutie pie Minccino. And I got two shiny friends! That was fun.

My stomach has been a bit hurty all day and it still is. I took a nap when I got home and now my lower back hurts as well as my stomach. Not sure what’s going on with that! I’m going to have some gentle food for now.

Saturday, February 1, 2020

February 1st

January was both very long and very short. I’m glad it’s over though. I’m ready for warmer weather and longer days! I want sunshine!

Brad and I went to the game store to play some board games, we had dinner, and we visited puppies. Not bad for a rainy Saturday!

I also got my hair cut today! I actually really like it so far. I dyed it last night, just a darker brown, and I’m really feeling it with this cut. Gotta bring out the pale skin this time of year, you know?

Anyway, gonna see about beating Pokémon Shield tonight. I think I’m getting close!

Friday, January 31, 2020

January 31st

Time for Pokémon tonight! Work was good today. Pretty chill. Then I bought frosting and sprinkles!

I’m so glad it’s the weekend!

Thursday, January 30, 2020

January 30th

Had some ice cream. Gonna play some Pokémon. I’m kinda chilly as well! Today was a not doing much sort of day...thinking I might try and work a little extra tomorrow. We shall see how I feel!

I’m gonna dye my hair tonight. Myself. I’m feeling cheap, and being a brunette makes things so much easier to do at home. I almost went for a dark amethyst color...but we’re just doing dark brown.

Wednesday, January 29, 2020

January 29th

I spent a good few hours at work today! And finally got a few days more of my prescription refilled! My doctor is slow and CVS is slow. And now I’m sleepy. I didn’t nap after work today! Yay! It’s time to go to bed at a reasonable hour!

Tuesday, January 28, 2020

January 28th

I went to work today! Now I’m blogging early because I’m sleepy! And it’s kinda chilly so I’m in bed with my comfy clothes on!

I want...a dog. For cuddles. Like a big dog. Does anyone have a dog I can borrow?

Monday, January 27, 2020

January 27th

I’m sleepy tonight. I was up til 5 am last night/this morning. Didn’t go to work. Got some groceries tonight at least. But I gotta go to bed early tonight.

Sunday, January 26, 2020

January 26th

Today was a sleepy day. Slept in, slept some more, had some food, watched YouTube, took a nap...that kind of day. I’m just stressed about going back to work tomorrow. I know it’s only a half day, but I gotta do it five days in a row! That’s a lot for me right now.

Might play some Pokémon before bed tonight, but I’m going to do my best to have an early night. And kitty cuddles!

Saturday, January 25, 2020

January 25th

All finished with filing my taxes! Honestly, Free Tax USA is the way to go. I used TurboTax back in the day and they make it hard to file for free and always try to trick you into thinking you need to pay them. Federal taxes are always free. Don't let any software or website fool you.

I guess now I'm just chilling! It's snowing a little bit right now and while I did walk to my mailbox to grab my tax forms, that's all the outside activity I've had today. I found a really big cool leaf though!

Friday, January 24, 2020

January 24th

Today...more ANTM, honestly. On to the next season!

Tonight...sleep early? YouTube? I’m taking a break from Pokémon for a night...that screen is big and bright late at night!

Thursday, January 23, 2020

January 23rd

Quiet day at the house today! Cas tried to wake me up by licking my nose/papping my face so many times I lost count. But it was still a good cozy morning. Didn’t do much else today besides some more YouTube and Hulu viewing. Now it’s Pokémon time, then bed time!

Wednesday, January 22, 2020

January 22nd

I did it! I went to the zoo today! It was awesome! The Tasmanian devils were out and playing. One of the tigers was talking. The sloth bear was rolling around by the glass. And there were almost no people! It was honestly such a good zoo day and I’m so glad! Also I loved on some goats because goats are good friends.

Tuesday, January 21, 2020

January 21st

I’m in bed and I’m going to try and sleep early tonight! Then I can go to the zoo tomorrow!

I just really enjoy watching America’s Next Top Model. They have better shoots than the Australian version.

And I love Croconana.

Monday, January 20, 2020

January 20th

Happy MLK Day! I was up super late again last nights and then slept a bunch today. Now my anxiety is feeling a bit up. But I got out and got some groceries and Subway for dinner, so that’s good. I got more hummus!

It just occurred to me that I forgot chicken nuggets.

I’m wearing the shirt my mom got me for Christmas and I actually really like it. It’s a long sleeved navy shirt from Ivory Ella, which is a brand I’m not super familiar with. I just know that proceeds from their stuff goes towards saving elephants, so I’m in favor of that.

Sunday, January 19, 2020

January 19th

Well I was up til 4:30 AM so my sleep schedule is whacked out. My mom came to visit and we spent a few hours together and also had a yummy meal at a place called Freshii. I was super tired the whole time, but of course it was still good to see her and hang out.

I missed Piplup day, but it’s like 0 degrees outside and I would have just done it at my apartment anyway I think...I saw a few pop up when I was able to check my phone but no shiny friends. Ah well.

I’m hungry and sleepy now. I have leftovers, but also I want food that I don’t have. Give me chicken nuggets! Pita with hummus! A hamburger! I don’t know, I just don’t want another sandwich. We’ll see what I end up making.

Saturday, January 18, 2020

January 18th

I slept so much today! Cas was being a cuddle bug and it was cold, and I just wanted to snuggle. But now I feel like I’m going to be up late. My mom is coming to visit tomorrow, which is exciting but I don’t want to be sleepy all day!

I ran out of hummus and I’m sad about it. I gotta buy more. I love hummus.

Friday, January 17, 2020

January 17th

Slept most of today then felt a bit down this evening. I’m going to play some Pokémon and relax with the cats. Tomorrow is supposed to be super rainy, but I’m hoping to get out of the house for a little bit anyway. And earlier in the day than usual! I can do it!

Thursday, January 16, 2020

January 16th

I actually went to a hockey game today! I’m definitely feeling the need to unwind and have some food now, anxiety is a bit up, but ANTM awaits me.

Pigeon is going nuts on a toy right now and Cas is guarding his banana toy. I love these kitties.

Wednesday, January 15, 2020

January 15th

I walked almost three miles today, apparently! Brad and I walked around outside for a few hours, which was really nice. We played some Pokémon Go and had a nice little dinner (though I'm not hungry again) and just had a really pleasant evening.

Not sure if I'm tired or not. Not sure what to watch online. I watched like...an entire season of The Amazing Race yesterday.

Tuesday, January 14, 2020

January 14th

Sleepy day today, and of course my doctor didn’t get back to me today. She’s sure not the quickest about returning my calls.

I’m already kinda sleepy tonight so hopefully I can get to bed early tonight and get up and at em at a good time tomorrow. Right now I’m watching The Amazing Race - it’s like I’m blogging back in 2010 again! Where’s the Snapple?

Monday, January 13, 2020

January 13th

I went to work for a bit today! Talked with my boss and HR, so we’re figuring out a plan. Luckily everyone has been great and super understanding.

However, because I went to work for a few hours, I’m extra sleepy tonight. I figure I might just go relax in bed instead of on the couch in case I fall asleep, that way I don’t get my back out of whack or something.

Pigeon has some crazy energy tonight. She’s chasing greebles.

Sunday, January 12, 2020

January 12th

Got out of the house today! I ate in a restaurant, walked around the mall, and did a bit of shopping. That was awesome! Now that I’m back home my anxiety is definitely up, especially because of work and school tomorrow. I have an appointment with HR tomorrow about getting some time off and some accommodations as well, and I should be hearing from my doctor tomorrow as well.

Chin up! Time for kitty cuddles!

Saturday, January 11, 2020

January 11th

Hello hello! I tried watching RuPaul’s Drag Race last night. It’s a bit over the top for my taste. So now I’m watching Australia’s Next Top Model because I needed a break from Project Runway. I wanted to watch Face Off but the SyFy app isn’t loading any videos and neither is the website. Not sure what’s up with that.

I hope you’re all doing well!

Happy ten year blog anniversary to me!

I started this blog during my senior year of high school, and have blogged daily since then. While I originally started my blog on January 1st, 2010, a few days into the year I missed a day, became disappointed with myself for starting off on a bad foot, and stopped until the tenth of January after a dear friend Kady encouraged me to keep at it. From January 10th, 2010, until today, January 10th, 2020, I have been a daily blogger. Today is not my last day of daily blogging, but rather a post to celebrate this milestone.

I missed two days of blogging in 2013, but as far as I can see, I have not missed any other days. Accounting for leap years, that basically evens out to only missing leap days, really, so I have pretty successfully blogged daily for ten years straight. Not all of my entries have been long or of fantastic quality, but they're all there. I'm really proud of that.

This is not going to be my last blog entry. I thought about it, but now is not the right time. I would honestly like to reread my entire blog first, and really delve into my thoughts and how much has changed in that time. And liked I've said before, I'd love to get a physical copy of my blog printed as well.

To Lexa and Jon, my friends who I met through blogging, you two are incredible. I never thought I would make friends through blogging - it has always just been a personal project. I'm sure in the beginning, when my blog was more public and I linked to it on occasion, I would have found it pretty cool if I had gained some sort of following. However, even though it's sort of a glorified journal at this point, it's really amazing to me that I was able to meet people because they found my blog and we hit it off.

Thanks to Blogger for your orange and white logo that is is familiar to me as any other social media app.

This is not the entry to expound upon all the milestones in my life in the past ten years, but rather one to say thank you to anyone who has ever read this blog, and also to congratulate myself. What I've done is pretty cool, and I'm proud of myself.

Thursday, January 9, 2020

January 9th

Took a quick snooze on my lunch break today. Came home and dozed off watching Project Runway. This was my first day back at work where I was at the office til 5 and everything and I didn’t get to sleep until late last night, plus the Klonopin and all that. So I think I’m gonna just sleep now actually! I’ll get up and wash my face and brush my teeth before I go to bed for real, but I’m getting an early start tonight.

Wednesday, January 8, 2020

January 8th

I’m glad January 10th is a Friday! Then if I need to stay up late writing a crazy long blog entry, I can.

Going out and about is still somewhat overwhelming. I want to be less anxious, but not sleepy.

It’s all good, we love some Project Runway!

Tuesday, January 7, 2020

January 7th

I’m working towards showering this evening and going to bed early tonight. I’m definitely apprehensive about going back to work tomorrow. It’s making my anxiety in general feel worse today which is such a bummer. And a combination of time off, anxiety, anxiety meds, and the winter hours are making me so sleepy and unmotivated as well.

Luckily Cas is on my lap right now and he’s warm and that makes me happy.

Monday, January 6, 2020

January 6th

It’s my half birthday! Yay!

Brad is home from MAGFest and I’m super happy! I even briefly got out of the house today (just to CVS) but hanging out with him was really helpful tonight.

Time for some chill Project Runway before bed!

Sunday, January 5, 2020

January 5th

I have a Wooloo now! His name is Lemon Meringue Pie. My Grookey is Banana Creme Pie!

Watching Project Runway now, of course. Had some random knocks on my door at like 10 PM tonight which was weird.

Tomorrow is my half birthday!

Saturday, January 4, 2020

January 4th

Ooh y’all, I’m gonna play some Pokémon Shield tonight. Just gotta watch the premiere of season 14 of Project Runway first, of course.

Tomorrow I have to deal with CVS, because apparently that pharmacy never answers their phone. This has happened before. I’m not in the mood to be on hold for half an hour and have no one answer.

Pigeon got on top of the perfume cabinet today and then didn’t know how to get back down. I love my cats.

Friday, January 3, 2020

January 3rd

You know this staycation girl is just chilling and watching Project Runway. Checked my mail. Drove to a PokéStop then back home.

I kinda wanna go buy some more of those Biore pore strips tomorrow. I gotta fix my sleep schedule though!

I need some dessert now.

Thursday, January 2, 2020

January 2nd

Just a chill day today after all! No zoo, but I’m thinking of doing that this weekend instead. Today I did a little cleaning and laundry though!

It’s supposed to rain tomorrow, but I’m going to try and get out and about anyway.

I want to buy Cas a bow tie.

Wednesday, January 1, 2020

January 1st

Happy 2020 everyone!

Most of my friends are at MAGFest right now, so I’m at home hanging with the cats and watching a mix of figure skating and Project Runway.

But hey, I’m starting to eat normally again (milk!) so that’s a good start. It’s my sleep schedule that’s still kinda wonky.

If the weather is nice tomorrow, I think I’m going to go to the zoo!
