You haven’t blogged in two weeks. You should do that.

That was what my man said to me nearly a week ago. Had it not been for me telling myself that I was way too busy or way too sick, I think I might have sat down and blogged. I was getting over everything and then started to come down with a sore throat and sinus trouble again Tuesday night. Ugh. It’s getting damn annoying to be constantly sick. I may have to actually go see my physician this week if I don’t start feeling better. Part of me thinks that the reason I keep getting sick is because my significant other likes to live in a FREEZER! Every time I wake up my nose is running and my throat is sore, because our new bedroom is so damn cold and he has the ceiling fan running. I don’t know if we need to change any of the arrangements we have or what, but I’m going to have to do something eventually if I don’t get better.

Sick Night

I’ve been sick for almost a week.

Everyone who has seen me knows this. I am not a happy person when I’m ill. I whine and sleep a lot. I get that from my father, I’m sure. I also feel as if I’m going to die and so that’s probably why I whine so much. I managed to learn something about being sick though. I learned that I practically have to sell my soul to get one day off when I’m sick.

Contemplation

Ask anyone I know if I love my job and you would probably get a resounding “yes.”

That being said, within the last week, I’ve been considering trying to find a new one. It isn’t because I don’t like my job. I just feel like I’m getting the short end of a very hectic stick. Things fall to me when I’ve been told repeatedly that I won’t have to deal with them. This may not be a huge problem, but I’m getting very tired of having to deal with these extra things. Well, yes, I know that being an adult and having a job means you sometimes have to deal with these kinds of things and I’m trying to be incredibly patient about it all. There are several other steps I will have to go through before I can even think about taking this path so it may take so long that everything will be fine when I get to that point. I’m also going to need the help of my husband-to-be in order to get the studying I need done. If, when all is said and done, I get back to a point where I don’t feel like abandoning ship when I finish my trail then I won’t. If I do still feel this way, then I will. That is something that will probably be addressed when the time comes (if it ever does since I’m lazy).

Sooner Than Later

Maybe it’s just me, but does it seem like time has been moving faster lately?

It seems as if, as I get older, time seems to speed up. Things that used to feel like forever seem to be zipping by at a pace that I can’t keep up with anymore. In February, I will have been at my current job for four years. This alone feels strange. Also in February, my man and I will be moving into our new apartment. This will be in the first full week of February and, while it seems like such a long time away, it’s really not. In two and a half weeks, I’ll be out on my own again, but this time I’ll be living with the man that I plan on spending the rest of my life with. It’s strange. It’s exciting. I’m looking forward to it all.

Well, my dearly beloved recently informed me that he’s been reading all my blog posts which made me feel a variety of different emotions all at once. First, I was embarrassed, because someone I actually know was reading my blog. Next, I was horrified, because it was my man reading my blog. It’s a strange thing when someone you know and love is reading your thoughts, feelings, or writings. I always feel more comfortable sharing these things with strangers than I do with people close to me. I can’t figure out why that is. Maybe it’s because I feel like strangers aren’t going to confront me when my thoughts get as strange as I know they can get? I’m not really sure what it is that makes me feel uncomfortable. Possibly it’s because I lose the anonymity of the internet when I know the person who is reading what I’m writing. I think that’s the one thing that has always allowed me to be comfortable sharing my writing and thoughts.

I’ve decided that I need to keep a blog again, but this time I’m moving it to wordpress if only, because I hear that the “serious” bloggers go to wordpress. I could start with an introduction, but I figure that I’ll probably cover that by finishing my “About Me” page. To give you a summary of myself: I’m a woman who recently turned thirty and is looking for a way to channel her writing inspiration into something much more constructive than just staring at my computer screen and hoping the words will appear as if by magic. I’m an extremely avid gamer (bordering upon addiction) and won’t go anywhere without my Xbox 360. I also have recently became engaged to a man that I’m sure will make the best husband ever, particularly because he’s an even bigger geek than I am. That about covers the important bits really.

Well, it’s Friday again (same time every week) and I’m laying in bed trying to make myself sleepy. I work weekend option at my job, nights on top of that, and so my bedtime is at eight a.m. Yeah, my work week begins when yours ends. Sometimes people seem to forget that there are folks who choose to work on the weekends. You honestly wouldn’t believe the benefits of working a weekend 3-day shift. I get to do a lot more than anyone else when it comes to weekday things. The only bad thing is that I don’t get to spend weekend time with my friends and family. So many people forget that I’m a night-shifter as well. That is almost slightly more annoying than when they forget that I work on Saturdays. My lovely fiance has even modeled his schedule around mine so that we can spend time together. He is the best man I’ve ever met.
