So... How'd Your Day Go? (2 Viewers)

My day was going great.

I slept most of the day yesterday. Because working nights, not because I'm lazy, although I am.

I woke up to eat then just went back to sleep. Amazing feeling.

So today WAS fine until I decided to spontaneously write a short story in the form of a very large poem.

Why do I do this to myself!? Aaahg!


Ha ha... narrative poetry is catching and addictive. I have a severe, chronic case myself.

I can finally afford to get my computer rebuilt. I've been restricted to my tablet and a wireless keyboard for nearly a year. This means I can get back into my manuscripts, not just my poetry. Fleetfoot was a rush, but I need to get back into the Darkkin Chronicles...I hope I haven't left it too long.

Currently, my Tuesday started about three hours ago. I'm eating oatmeal and it's wonderful.

Yesterday is what I want to mention. I was the only keyholder on staff all day yesterday at work and usually something always goes wrong, I can't find anything, and the goals I want to accomplish run away with the wind. However, I got everything I wanted to yesterday, nothing went wrong, and I finally figured out the stupid fax machine. I don't normally open the store or have to deal with faxes but I was able to get it all squared away, like a boss.

It was a good Monday.

Today I have off, so it will be filled with laundry, chilling and the start of my spring cleaning. I have too many things.

Better than yesterday and the tears have not been so frequent. Slowly, slowly is how I am taking things.

The day was long, my bones hurt and there is silence in my head. I am just that tired and I do not like the silence...It has been a crabby apple sort of day.

Found out why my hip has been hurting. The bone itself is actually bruised, don't know when, don't know how but the damage is done. Grrr.

:sunny:Things are going great today. I think this is the first genuine day of Spring, warm and sunny and people out enjoying themselves in the new-found freedom. I am convinced the cold is gone for awhile, at least.:encouragement:

Retail therapy - spent a fortune on trivia I didn't need or could really afford: clothes, shoes, fancy underware, Pilates mat, Zumba dance shoes, lycra leggings, new suitcase, etc. An orgy of extravagance and a triumph over want versus need. Did I need them? No!. Did I want them? Yes! Do I feel guilty - sort of ... :(

I bought and ate a citrus cake after I found that I had gained weight. My logic is wonderful!

I finally put the text I was writing for challenge in a program that counts words. It had reached 1700 words and end for it was not in sight. I fear the story thinks it is a novel. So I hacked a piece from it and came up with a goofy ending. That piece was still too long, so I have been cutting it to get it down to the 650 words. I'll be tweaking it tomorrow too.

Started off fairly well, went downhill fast, picked up a bit and has been so-so ever since. No retail therapy for me though although three items ordered online arrived.

That's exactly my logic! I've already put on weight so one more piece of cake is not going to make ANY difference. When it comes to food I have no will power ...

I found out that yesterday's allergy fit gave me eye inflammation!

That is to say, conjunctivitis... My eye itself was actually swollen! But it's not the bacteria pink eye, that's just the reaction from my allergies, so I'm not contagious!

Thankfully I woke up this morning and it was muuuch better!

So I wrote 1,901 words today for my novel planning,

and took a bath,

got all pretty again, (lol)

and now it's time for video games! Muahah!

Been broke the past few days. Went to a temp agency yesterday. Real toilet of a place, but I got a job in like an hour flat.

I would have to stand outside at five in the morning and wait for a van to pick me up with a bunch of other schlebs to go to work.

I walked roughly 2 miles to get to the temp agency, and walked back as well. I had no cigarettes on the entire journey. I was angry.

By the time I got home, I was literally sucked into Surface. >> Show's old as ass but me and my landlord watched the whole 15 episode first season together all day long, smoking weed all the while. Problem is, I have no money. I'm angreeeeeeeeeeeeeh. I can't get to work in the morning without the cash, and I blew the entire day away smoking weed instead of making a quick couple of dollars like a responsible idiot. Now it's 11 PM, windswept rain, and I'm out walking another two miles to a totally unrelated place on the slim chance of being able to swindle a couple of bucks, which I do successfully, but only to the extent that I can effectively get to and from work. Then I walked back home. THEN I went to play AW with my room mate, it was like two AM or some ish and I was already burnt out from all the exercise I put in yesterday. I'm playing the game with him, Exo-Survival, and we're killin' it. It comes to about 3:05 and I'm like "yeah, I gotta hop in the shower." I get in, get out, browse WF for like fifteen minutes then roll at 3:45.

I get to the bus at 3:57, MISS it, but buy two MUCH NEEDED cigarettes with my ill-gotten booty. I get to the pick-up point at 4:25 or some ish like that. It takes every ounce of willpower in my body not to smoke the last cigarette I have in my possession until the van is present, but somehow I actually managed to abstain long enough to light up right before it pulled up and actually short myself for later. I get into the crammed van with fourteen people I don't know and said not one word to in the entire time I waited on that god forsaken corner, and a driver who only speaks Spanish. YEAH. I've been in cramped vans before, but this was fucking ridiculous. Half the people around me are falling asleep on the person next to them. It's like a 45 minute drive up to where the job is.

I'm 100% convinced that I spent today manufacturing toothpaste for Al Qaeda. Eight grueling, slow, monotonous hours of repetitive motion. Load the toothpaste. Load the box that the toothpaste goes into. Recycle the box the toothpaste came in, wash, rinse, repeat.

I don't know how, but I actually managed to stay alive until around 2 before I sabotaged a machine to slow down productivity, got off at 3, then got passed by three busses before finally getting the right one, and walking a mile home.

I just smoked a blunt and ate some chicken noodle soup.

Now I'm about to go out AGAIN, and I'm STILL fucking broke. I need SLEEP.

><

SLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP.

Today was another productive work day. Made sure things ran smoothly. When I look back at when I first moved up the ladder last summer, I've come a long way. I handle certain types of situations much better than I think I would have in another job. In the grand scheme of things, it's probably better that my boss isn't around. As an entire staff, we've all done quite well without a leader.

I've also rediscovered how much I love spaghetti squash. I plan on making it a regular food in my daily routine.

Oh, and tomorrow is payday :glee:
