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!

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.

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!

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?

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.

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!

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!

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 entire season of The Amazing Race yesterday.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!
