May 31st

Hello my loves! My apartment is totally clean now! ...Except for the dishes from my dinner tonight, but shh.

I am so, so, so excited about Game of Thrones tomorrow. Oberyn my love, I can't wait to see you!

There is currently quite the thunderstorm happening outside. I hope my power doesn't go out, because then it would get way too warm in here. Keep your fingers crossed for me!

May 30th

Happy Friday! My dad is coming up to see my new apartment tomorrow morning, so tonight I'm on cleaning duty. I'm listening to old Gilly music so I feel like I'm at least getting paid for all this cleaning. (I promise my apartment isn't horrible, I just got behind on dishes while I was sick.) I can't wait to have a little extra money so I can actually decorate this place! It has all the essentials, and my bathroom looks pretty damn nice, but the rest of this place little a little oomph.

I'm out on Sarah and Megan's front porch with Forrest right now. There are way too many mosquitos. Welcome to Minnesota, where our state bird is actually a bug.

I'm on a nostalgia kick. I'm listening to songs from old Gilly Hicks floor playlists. There was a lot of crappy music, but damn there was some good stuff too. And it definitely was different music from what's played in other stores. Thank goodness for disco and house music.

Here are some of my favorite songs from past playlists for your enjoyment:

I have very big hair today! I also have dark lipstick on and I look a little like Lorde. I'm okay with this.

I'm about to watch episode two of Game of Thrones with my new recruit! I hope he likes Lorde.

May 26th

I slept all day. I didn't mean to, be really...being sick, what else was I going to do? I've also made my way through my entire Watch Later playlist on YouTube in the past few days. I'm about to eat "dinner" since I woke up somewhat recently, and I don't know what to watch while I eat. This would be easier if a new episode of Game of Thrones was released yesterday!

May 25th

I'm really ready to be done with being sick. I'm also really ready for a new episode of Game of Thrones but there's never a new episode on Memorial Day weekend so I am without. I just want to see Gregor fight Oberyn!

Have any of you lovely folks read The Tao of Pooh? It was recommended to me recently and I'm really excited to read it.

I've taken like two weeks of from my Nuzlocke challenge because of moving and being sick and I really feel like I need to get back into it! I started it a month ago today. If I didn't already say so, I beat all of the gyms without losing anyone and now I'm going to start training for the Elite Four. (I also made it through Victory Road and had one hell of a time with Wally.)

May 24th

Guess what? I have an ear infection. How brilliant is that? It's very hard to get a job when you're sick, but I need a second job really soon. And of course I couldn't go to work today because not only am I virus-ridden, I can't hear out of one of my ears. I feel pretty crappy. I just want to start feeling better so I can get back on the job hunt.

...for now I'm watching the British version of Hoarders, and that's helping a little.

May 23rd

I bought lots of useful stuff today, including a really nice end table that was $5 at Goodwill and a makeup organizer from TJMaxx. I also bought healthy groceries! Because maybe that will help me feel better soon? I dunno, but I'm drinking a green smoothie. It's tasty.

Hello gorgeous humans! I am sickly! But all is well because I visited adorable cats today, and that makes even mono seem less bad. I also have recruited yet another person into the Game of Thrones fandom! I am a shamelessly evangelical fan of this show (and the books) and I will undoubtedly try and get you to join me. There's no tithing required, only tears when your favorite characters die.

May 21st

Blogging may be a little shoddy for a few days- I'm sick. Maybe with mono. I don't want to be sick, I want to go to job interviews. But I'm so tired and in pain and not happy. I'm listening to Game of Owns though, which is helping a little.

Sarah and I are going to watch Game of Thrones now. 
I have internet! Finally! Thank you so, so much to Kjell for getting my wifi sorted out. You are my hero!

May 18th

I am DONE MOVING. I don't want to do that again anytime soon. I now own a kitchen table, chairs, and a futon, so I feel pretty furniture-wealthy. I also built a TV stand thing all my myself with no instructions! ...I needed so many people to help with my bed, so that's saying a lot. (I took it apart with Kjell, and Sarah, Mike and I put it back together. Ikea beds are four person jobs!)

Now I need a cat and my new apartment will be perfect.

May 17th

It's the weekend! Hooray! I am very nearly done moving. I bought a kitchen table and chairs today too. Now I'm watching 300 since I don't have internet in my new place, but for whatever reason, I have 300 on my computer. This movie is much stranger than I remembered.

May 16th

Blogger needs a makeover. Not my blog, but like the actual Blogger website. The formatting is weird and outdated and not very intuitive. And it's so hard to unfollow blogs!

Today was a slower moving day. Tomorrow will be probably the last actual day of moving, and then after that it's just furniture shopping so I can actually fill up my apartment. I don't have a kitchen table or chairs, or anything at all for my living room...hmm. Anyone want to send me a couch? I'm sure shipping would be super cheap. ;D

May 15th

I moved almost everything into my new apartment today! All that's left to move is my bedside table, Tv stand, mattress, and some hanging clothes. Oh, and my food! Food is very important. A very, very big thank you to Kjell, Sarah, and Mike for helping me move all the big furniture, and for helping me take apart my bed and put it back together again! You all are heroes!

May 14th

Tomorrow is moving day! I'm so excited! Kjell was nice enough to come over and help me take apart my bed frame. Now I just need someone to help me put it back together tomorrow.

I can hear a very talkative duck outside. I think it's my friend George O'Mallard. I'm going to miss him.

May 13th

Two days until I move!

I'm still feeling weirdly tired despite the fact that I got plenty of sleep last night.

Game of Thrones was genuinely really good this week! There was no shortage of unnecessary sex and naked ladies, unfortunately, but the rest of the episode was good. Tyrion is a bamf.

May 12th

I conquered Ikea today and now I'm exhausted. Why have I been so sleepy lately? I hope I don't have mono. 

Back to bed...

May 11th

I just finished watching Hercules. I didn't actually think I'd watch the whole thing, but I guess I did. I hadn't seen it in quite a few years, so I figured I was due for a rewatch.

It's currently storming like crazy here, and I think that me watching Hercules may have summoned Zeus to my neighborhood. There's so much lightning and thunder!

My mom and I went to the arboretum today for Mother's Day! I really do love spending time with her.

My mom, sister and I watched The Amazing Race together. We are all very angry about the results and we all think Brendan and Rachel are insufferable. Sigh.

Bonus Mother's Day selfie from me and my mom!

May 10th

I have been so sleepy these past few nights. I hope I'm not getting sick or anything. I need lots of energy to move in a few days!

Here's hoping Game of Thrones is more book-accurate tomorrow night.

I conquered Victory Road and Wally with no deaths! I am a Nuzlocke god!

May 9th

It's another sleepy night for me. I also just realize how confusing it is that you have to fight Wally after you fight Wallace in Gen III. Come on, how did that happen?

I'm a bit unwell so I'm just waking up to blog and say helllo. Dear cold or allergies: please leave soon, thanks. Love, Kate.

Happy Wednesday, fellow humans! Guess what? I finally saw a Star Wars movie. I went nearly 22 years without seeing one. I saw the first one/episode four and my favorite character is most definitely R2-D2. What an adorable fucking beep-boop can.

I'm at home with my family for a few days, which also means I get to hang out with my dad's dog and my mom's cat. Chaos moved out of the apartment so I have no pets in my life. I have two strong contenders for cats I want to adopt though, so I'm excited!

May 6th

It's two months until my birthday! Yay! And less than 10 days until I move! I'm so excited.

I've been watching Marriland's Nuzlocke/Wedlocke videos since I started my Nuzlocke, and it's been pretty fun. I like watching other people take on the Gym Leaders with just as much pressure as I do when I fight them. It's so scary. I thought I was going to cry fighting Tate and Liza because I was so stressed out. I beat them without losing anyone though, so I'm pleased with myself. Wallace is next!

May 5th

Ten days until I move! I need money though. I need more hours at work. Because I need a cat ASAP.

Game of Thrones is fifty shades of fucked up right now. Did I read the same book as the showrunners? No? I'm also slightly devastated about the results of The Amazing Race. My cowboys! :(

Sunday, May 4, 2014

May 4th

Time to watch Game of Thrones and The Amazing Race! Lexa let me know that Game of Thrones is a little weird tonight...again...I don't know what the showrunners are doing but it seems like the past three episodes (including tonight's) have been pretty strange. That Cersei/Jaime scene has been the downfall of this season! Now everything's gone to shit!

I'm going to cope by eating unhealthy food.

May 3rd

I took a break from my Ruby Nuzlocke playthrough to fix up my sleep schedule a bit, but I think I'm going to dive back in tonight. I dunno...I'm kinda sleepy. And going to bed at a normal hour is always good.

There's this mallard duck that likes to hang out on the roof of our deck. He showed up there once a month or two ago and I was super baffled as to why a duck would be hanging out on the third floor deck of an apartment building, but I figured he was just a weird duck. Well, he was back today, in the exact same spot. Just hanging out. What's up with that? His name is George O'Mallard, by the way.

I am very chilly right now! I'm not sure why though. My back is also a bit sore. What a day!

I bought a litter box today! And kitty litter! I am so prepared.

May 1st

It's May! Happy May, friends!

I might have stayed up all night talking with Sarah. I hadn't been to her house in awhile and neither of us were terribly tired so we stayed up and chatted about life. However, I'm quite exhausted now, although I did actually manage to get a lot done today, so I'm proud of myself!

I love this month's picture in my lighthouse calendar. The featured lighthouse is actually in the same city that my aunt and uncle live in, and they're the ones who gave me the calendar. So I think of them even more when I look at it! Lighthouses sure are cool, aren't they?
