Oh work…

So here was the original plan for this evening…

Work until 9:40-ish.
Get home, relax and catch up with friends.
(This was after the MJ get together got squashed.)
Write a blog about how awesome the past couple nights have been and the awesome friend who accompanied me on some grand adventures.

Here’s how this evening actually went…

While at work get begged (not really, but it adds a dramatic flair) to switch for opening shift.
Figure out that opening would mean more cash and time to tan, so I accepted.
Work until 9:40-ish.
Get home, relax and catch up with friends and slightly catch up with friends.
Write a blog about how awesome the past couple nights have been and the awesome friend who accompanied me on some grand adventures not having time to write a blog.

The plan for tomorrow…

Work way too early, and a little too long. (4:45AM-1:00PM)
Tan/Read in park with friend(s?).
Make some extravagant plans.
Blog about the awesome week I’m having.
Dance the night away!

It will happen, you will be jealous of this week.

Living up to one’s name

I slept so well last night. I got a little less than 8 hours, but I woke up feeling way more refreshed than I have in a long time, and had my eyes fully open before my alarm went off!

As I laid down last night I noticed just how comfortable my comforter actually is. I was truly thankful in the moment to be able to enjoy being wrapped up in my bed linens for possibly the last night in a while. Just a sheet when the temperature rises is simply not the same. Somehow, the weight of my comforter is just right. It lets me know that it’s there and I don’t need to toss and turn, but it’s not overbearing and I can throw it off without much effort at all if I’d like.

This comforter has been there when I’ve been sick or upset to surround me and make me feel safe. It’s also easy to just fling onto only half of my bed when I need a little more room to breathe. I know it’s still there, being bright and colorful and ready to help in any way that it can.

This comforter has more than lived up to it’s name, which is kind of awesome since there are things like driveways and apartments that don’t actually do that so much.

If you don’t already know, my name means “pure” which I have taken to mean undiluted. I’m currently working on getting better at living up to my name. While I love to be influenced by others and take on new things, I want to always be me. Now I just have to figure out who the heck that is!

What is sleep?

I’m definitely up way too late. Can you blame me though, I was only 27 pages from the end of Wicked when it was really time for me to go to bed. And of course once I finish it again I can’t just go to bed, I have to check to see if anything has happened online in the couple of hours that I decided to read!

Luckily for me, two of my favorite bloggers lived up to those titles, and I am now going to bed rather amused and looking forward to adventures tomorrow!


I woke up pretty early this morning for having finally put down Wicked just after 3 last night, so of course I picked up my book and started reading again at 8:30. I was much more tired than I’d thought though, because I ended up falling back asleep again, only to wake up around 3!

It’s really nice to have three days off in a row and not feel like I completely wasted my day by sleeping through it. Apparently I needed the rest. For the past hour or so I’ve done about nothing, which has felt good. I do plan on cleaning my room a bit and doing some laundry at some point today, but without anything to do tomorrow, why bother right away? I’m letting the process all marinate in my mind so that I may be able to move through it all better when I actually get down to it!

I’m pretty darned sure you should get that for me since my birthday is less than three months away! (Yes I am already counting down, don’t judge, even with the large number that it will be, I like my birthday!)

I think I’m going to try to tweak my Fall schedule a little bit tonight. After I get my room a little bit more organized (read throwing some stuff out) I want to really look into the Spring semester and see just what I will need to do then to reach my goals. I’d like to find a way to get 20 hours of work in each week, and that great opportunity of a Jamba Juice on campus isn’t such a fancy idea anymore. That location is going to be a franchise location, so working there wouldn’t have all the perks of working for Jamba, like being able to transfer to lots of different locations in the country.

I definitely need some time for homework next semester though, since this semester’s grades didn’t turn out the way that they were supposed to. And of course there are some recent developments that I hope to have some time for next semester as well (which also means I’m hoping they last that long)!

I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this yet, but within 12 hours of my roommate telling me that she was giving notice, I already had a potential roommate. Let’s hope that the character of this house doesn’t scare him off though!

I should be asleep.

I officially have an A in the class I thought I was getting an A- in, and a B in one of the classes I thought I was getting a C in.

The other four remain to be seen, but it’s likely that a lot of those are Cs.

My roommate today let me know that she’s giving our landlord 30 days notice this month and will be out by July 1. Not sure exactly what I want to do about getting a new roommate or finding my own place, but I have a couple ideas for roommates if I do stay here.

Dancing was a lot of fun tonight, and tomorrow night at my new friend Amanda’s graduation party it should be lots of fun as well. I’m getting more comfortable just going with the flow, which is probably good for learning new things and not forcing things.

I’m going to be extremely tired tomorrow, but it will definitely be worth it.

What a day.

Sorry I don’t have a relevant picture, but I love this one by Nicole Hill Gerulat.

Today was a bad day. I let little things get to me after calling in sick to work and I just kind of wallowed in the bad day for a little while. I asked for strength though and was able to make it through.

Then I got to talk about some things that I’ve been wondering about with a good friend.

I’m getting to bed later than I thought I would, but I think I’ll sleep pretty well and be able to get up at a reasonable hour tomorrow and take care of some things that I’d like to get done.

Tonight is much better than I expected it to be and I’m looking forward to tomorrow being even better!

So Tired!

It is 8:25PM and I am about to get ready for bed.

I am very tired from a very full weekend, and I have a big day tomorrow.

Work from 5:15AM to Noon.

Shower and gathering of school stuff until 12:45PM when Liz will pick me up.

Class 1:30PM-7:15PM.

Home around 7:45PM, and then SLEEP!

I’ve got a decent amount of reading that I need to do before class on Tuesday, not really sure when that will happen, hopefully some on my breaks at work, and then maybe during the one class that is in conferences tomorrow, though I’d hoped to be taking a nap at that point. Maybe we’ll be slow at work and they can send me home early!

Just a note about today, since it’s all I can really handle. Got off of work early and was able to go visit family, which was really good! I think a few of my cousins are going to join my sister-in-law and I in the Race for the Cure. I really hope that we can get a huge group together. Kristin is going to participate in a triathlon the weekend before, so she and I might actually skip ahead of those who are just wanting to walk. My brother suggested skipping the length, and if we could, I would LOVE to do that!
