Today, [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] and I went to the eye doctor so I could get an exam and a few new pairs of glasses. It's been probably a good two or three years since I've been, and I figured that now would be a good time to get my eyes checked.

The people over at Vision Works were super nice, and I really liked the eye doctor that helped me. xD I have horrible eyesight; the eye doctor first made me look at a chart with my glasses off. I told him I couldn't read anything, even the top line. It's all blurry unless I have it right in front of my face. When I did the machine that automatically calculated my prescription, he was all "Wow, no wonder you couldn't see that top letter!" when he looked at what the machine printed out.

My eyes are healthy, which makes me happy. I just can't see. xD Here's an exact copy of my prescription:

Right eye is -6.25 sphere, -2.25 cylinder, 45 axis.
Left eye is -7.75 sphere, -0.75 cylinder, 137 axis.

I also have astigmatism in my right eye, which doesn't help with the whole seeing thing. Buuuut, I picked out two pairs of glasses I love. :D I'm getting a pair of regular glasses and a pair of sunglasses, for when I go biking and stuff. The regular glasses are black and baby pink, while the sunglasses are black and baby blue. [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] helped me pick both of them out.

The only problem was the price. My total was $277.00, with all of the stuff I needed. However, I saved $310.00 with all of the discounts I received. And since my prescription hadn't changed very much from the last time I was in, I'm hoping my eyes are done going through changes and I just need to pay for the exam next time.

But still, there goes all of my extra money until I get my bonus check on the 16th. xD It's about $120.00 more than I was expecting to pay. And my eyes are still dilated, so I hope that will go away in the next few hours.

I ended up riding my bike a lot this weekend! Eight miles yesterday, and another 12 today. I'm quite proud of myself for getting back into the groove of things and taking advantage of the nice weather we've been having.

I went to LotP today, after [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] and I finished cleaning the office and played a bit of The Bouncer, and ordered some new shoes to wear to work. I'm very excited to get them, as they're fricking adorable.

I went to look at cars yesterday with [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com], since I need a new one desperately. xD We ended up spending about three hours at one dealership, because the guy helping us was totally smarmy and couldn't understand the words "I'm just looking, thanks."

I don't really think there's anything else pressing going on right now. Just work and school, pretty much. Although, I'll be really happy once the semester is over. Work can stop being a bitch any time, now.

Chocolate, no question. xD While I can't live without my mobile phone, I'd definitely be okay if I didn't have chocolate again for the rest of my life.

Still in the process of moving. I'm pretty far along in it, though. The only things left in my room are the pieces of furniture I'm going to donate or try and sell. On Sunday, my dad and I moved pretty much everything else in my room, and some of the stuff in the living room, to my brand new storage unit. Of course, I wanted to be completely moved out by now, but... hey. At least I'm farther along than I had expected.

In other news, I'm sick again. Wtfuck. I started feeling bad on Sunday, and I don't think moving furniture all day helped any. I left work early yesterday to try and rest for a bit; I'm so glad that I have an awesome and understanding boss. <3

I also went to see The Princess and the Frog with [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] Tuesday night. It was just as cute the second time! I already want to see it again. Maybe I will, after I finish getting everything moved. :|

When I went to go pick up [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] for the movie, her brother had his gift for me. I wasn't expecting anything from him, so it was quite the surprise! According to her, he was all nervous and stuff about me coming over and worried about his appearance. xD Little things like that make me believe that I still could have a chance with him, if he ever becomes single again. Of course, I'm probably just dreaming, but... it's nice to know that I can still have a romantic interest in someone, especially after all of these years.

Since I probably won't update again until after Christmas, happy holidays to those who celebrate it! It started snowing in Colorado last night and didn't let up until about five or six hours ago, so we're going to enjoy a white Christmas this year.

Thanks to [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] for the lovely sign!

xD Well, I had quite the harrowing night. For about three hours, it felt like my throat was closing up; the only kind of breathing I could do was shallow and I ended up wheezing a lot. I know it wasn't allergies, since I took two pills for it and they didn't have any effect.

From about midnight to 3 a.m., I only got little snatches of sleep because I would wake up feeling like I couldn't breathe. I did end up falling asleep for good sometime after 3:15, and my throat felt like normal when I woke up this morning.

I don't like it. I don't like it at all.

Last night, I went to see Star Trek with [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] and [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com]. I hadn't wanted to see it since it came out, since I'm not really into the whole live action sci-fi stuff. However, I will say that I was pretty impressed by it! I probably won't see it again in theaters, unless I go with another group, but I'll probably end up watching it on DVD once or twice. I thought that the reboot was really well done.

I also went to see Plasmacrash with [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] on Friday! I think they get better every time I see them. Joe only played three songs of their set, since he's still not feeling well, but those three songs he played with them sounded the best. Elite was a really awesome band, too, even though I was only able to stay for about two songs of their set. I want to see them again, all the way through.

Work was a total pain in the ass last week. We had Monday off, so that caused a lot of our work to pile up. I ended up working straight through, from 8-4 (and 7-almost 4:30 on Friday) without taking a lunch and just going home early in order to try and catch up from the weekend. And this next week is going to be even crazier, since I have to help one of my coworkers with one of her projects... and school also starts on Tuesday.

But! On a good note... I'm going to start riding my bike to work on the days that I don't have school, and I'm going to try and not drive as much as possible. So, if I need to go somewhere and it's within biking distance of the apartment, then I'm going to bike. I'm also going to buy a new iPod in June, since my old one isn't working. I'm also going to pay off my small bill and get that out of the way, before I start working on my loan. Hopefully, if I can stick to the budget that I've made for myself, I'll have my loan paid off by November/December. Then it's to work on my credit card debt.

This weekend isn't long enough! I'm not ready to go back to work tomorrow. At least payday is on Wednesday. :D

I know I promised another update, but there really hasn't been much to say since my last update. So, I bring you two new memes.

Here's the first one! This one was stolen from [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com]):

So, here's how it works:
1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc)
2. Put it on shuffle
3. Press play
4. For every question, type the song that's playing
5. When you go to a new question, press the next button
6. No cheating, b'atch!!!

Some of these actually fit rather well... )

And here is the second one, taken from [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com]:

Comment, and I will comment back with a picture of the fictional character that most reminds me of you. Then post the same in your journal.

...And on a random note, my tooth is hurting again. >>
jupiterhalo: (Ceres)
All right kids, it's time for an actual update.

NDK, jobs, and my own private thoughts... )
jupiterhalo: (Wheee!)
Yes, I was bored, so I decided to answer the so-called "Writer's Block" question. xD Which is: If you won $100 this afternoon, what would you do with it?

I would like to say that I would use the money in a good way... like donate it or use it to pay off some of my Macy's card (which apparently has been upgraded AGAIN to a Platinum account o_o), but more likely than not, I would use it on one of two things:

1. Use it for food, since I enjoy going out.
2. Deposit it in my checking account, and go buy the remaining "Gundam Wing" DVDs that I need. xD

...It'd probably be the second one, too.

So, I had my root canal done at 8 this morning. It definitely wasn't as bad as I thought! The worst part about it was getting up that early. x_x But I'm going back in a week to get my crown put on. The nurse that was helping my dentist was really nice! xD Her name is Lacey, and we were talking about Macy's. Apparently I need to check out the M.A.C. line sometime, because it's really good. She used to make special trips down to Denver just to get it. But yeah, I'm still tired and getting hungry. Dr. Mangle said that my tooth would be bothering me a lot, but it hasn't so far. I think that's a good thing.
jupiterhalo: (Orihime)
So, I called my dentist at 8:30 this morning, making an appointment for 4 p.m. today. When I went, they filled in the gap temporarily, then made an appointment for me to get it filled on Thursday.

The bad thing about all of this is that I may have to get a root canal. :< The gap in my tooth is dangerously close to my nerve, so it's a definite possibility that I'll have to get one. It may not be this year; it may happen when I'm 50. xD But, still... at least I'm getting it taken care of~.

152- Wahhh!

:< My tooth broke.

Damn you, P'zone! >_> *shakes fist* I must go see a dentist ASAP... what a week this has been.


xD I just took this really hilarious quiz... well, I think it's hilarious.

What type of Resident Evil zombie are you?

Hey look, it's the friendly zombie. You don't like to feast alone, you like to share. When you attack your victims you prefer to do it with a group of your zombie friends and make it into a challenging sport. More fun that way isn't it? After all, they can't shoot all of you at once.
Take this quiz!

jupiterhalo: (Say what?!)
Work has totally been keeping me down lately. xO This past week I had 38 hours scheduled... it's good money, but still. xD People just don't seem to realize that I need my days off, too. Of course, I could always turn them down, but... if I do, I feel bad. And I'd like to think that because I'm taking their shifts now, if I need some covered in the future they'll do the same. But, yeah. I'm finally going to get Tina-chan her CD player with this week's big paycheque~! That's exciting.

On another note, what's not so exciting? My first gross experience at Macy*s. xD It's kind of hard to believe that I've been there almost two years, and have now only run into something really nasty in the fitting rooms. I've been around when other people have had their experiences, but it's never happened to me personally. It's nothing too bad compared to what some of my friends have experienced, but... still. xD Anyway, when I was working my shift on Friday, I found a used diaper in the fitting room. T_T It was very gross... even a little warm, still. xD; *sigh* I swear, people are just odd in what they think is acceptable behavior in public places.

And I hate my date with David about a week or so ago! It was pretty fun... we went bowling and then went to Starbucks after that. :D He wants to go mini golfing when we get together next... or he wants to take me to a shooting range and teach me how to shoot a gun. xD; He has some very strange ideas, I think. But both sound fun to me~

And I also went to Red Robin for the first time in months about a week ago, as well. I was hoping to see both Derek and Chewy, since Derek pestered Shannon and me about coming in. xD But it was only Chewy... it was nice to see him, though! And Carter works at the Red Robin, too! o_O I thought that he worked at the one in Loveland, so it was a surprise to see him. xD He came over and we chatted for a bit, and he made me promise to come in and see him more often.

I've also had my first few therapy sessions with Natalie. She seems like a really nice person... and it's been kind of stabilizing to get back into therapy. xD It's like "Okay, I'm in therapy, the world is normal now." But yeah... I'm going to see her for the summer (at $15 a session, though ;o;). But she's taking Britney's place in the fall, so I'm probably going to continue seeing her once school starts again.

Speaking of... I finally decided to take "World Music." xD It's my last semester, and I want to have a few fun classes. And I'm much happier when I have a music class, anyway. But I'm the first person to sign up for it. I wonder if I'll be the only one in it..? There will probably be more people signing up as it gets closer to August.

It's a good thing I'm working all of these hours, though. e_e; Manga is taking over my life! I'm already buying them so much... and now there's a new series I want to check out. xD It is so good, though.

089- :D

So, I got back from my eye appointment a little while ago, and now I can't see things right in front of me very well. xD; And my mother miscalculated the co-pay amount, so now I owe $15 more to the Eye Center. But it's all good; I have really healthy optic nerves; I'm just near-sighted and can't see. xD;

And my eye doctor was all "Hey, why don't you try soft contacts? Your perscription isn't that weird! They could work!" So, I'm going in for a trial with the soft contacts on the first of May (Pat's birthday! :D). At 7:45 in the morning. ~_~ But I'm excited! Hopefully they'll work out a lot better than my hard contacts.

Well, I'm going to go try and get some more sklepo! (Damn you, Foxxxy. =x)

Happy New Year's, everybody! I hope that it was a safe and fun event for all.

So, here are my new year's resolutions:

-Exercise more (a LOT more. If I want to get down to 120 pounds, I have my work cut out for me. ^_^; But hopefully I'll be able to do it this year!)

-Spend less money. As soon as I get money of any kind, I immediately go out and spend it. And that's bad! I need to start saving for things I want, like a car and a computer. Also, I want to have PLENTY of money for NDK. So all of the spending I'm doing has to stop.

Well, it's been a very interesting year, and I'll talk about it later. But now I need to get to bed, seeing as how I have to go to Foldy's in about four hours. e_E Be safe, everyone! <3
