Today has been quite a good day, despite my sunburn getting to that really disgusting phase before blistering. xD

I had my six month cleaning/check-up at the dentist first thing this morning. Normally at these things I have to schedule at least two or three cavities to be filled, and have the hygienist yell at me for not flossing. But this time is probably the first time ever that I haven't had any cavities at all! I just have to floss, which I'm already aware of. That made me pretty happy.

My class was okay last night. It was also very boring, so I'm hoping that once we get into the actual weather stuff (instead of talking about things like density and pressure) it will be more interesting. I'm going to need to bring a snack or something to that class in order to stay awake. My teacher is also quite awkward, so we'll see how things pan out.

Nothing much has been going on, other than that. Just work, reading, catching up on Friends with [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] and stuff like that.

Yesterday was a busy day for me! I'm not really used to that. I went on a bike ride with my dad in the morning, and found a cookbook and a new spare comforter. Then I went down to LotP in the afternoon and got made up like a zombie, in order to walk around NewWest Fest and promote the zombie crawl that's happening on October 23rd. That was both fun and exhausting, even though I got a bad sunburn on my shoulders and back. xD A bunch of people thought I was actually injured, and one guy thought I had AIDS. In the evening, [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] went shopping for new clothes and then went to Old C's with her dad.

Last night I had the worst trouble sleeping. I'd wake up every two to three hours on account of my sunburn hurting like a mofo. At about 4 I decided to just get up and go to the store since I needed things. I feel bad, since I woke Joe up when I was putting my stuff away in the freezer. xD But he doesn't work today, so it's not as bad as it could be.

School starts tomorrow, which will be nice. That way I can get it over with, instead of dreading it. Other than that, nothing has really been going on.

362- NDK?

More like No-DK. xD

I've been trying to figure out finances for the last few days, and no matter how I tweak them, it doesn't look like I'll be able to afford to go this year. My portion of the rent for the house and my bills definitely have to come first, and those leave me with no extra money to speak of. I also need to start saving up for our trip to Japan next year, which I haven't put a dime towards yet.

It's a bummer, since this is going to be the first time in about four or five years that I haven't gone. But it's not like I had any new costumes to bring or anything like that. That'll be Wasabi, which isn't until March.

Oh well. Que sera sera!

Yeah, I still have the teddy bear my uncle gave me when I was born. I used to sleep with him every night and carry him around with me on trips and stuff. Now he's laying in my hope chest, at my parent's house.

Even though I didn't do much at all this weekend, I still feel really stressed out about stuff. Hopefully I'll be able to relax and mellow out during the week, but I doubt it. Tuesday is Payables, after all.

And here is a meme taken from [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com]. Holy crap do I feel old.

Are you a '90s kid? )

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.

Wow, it's been a long time since I've updated. xD I'm thinking about getting a Facebook, simply because people seem to use that a lot more than LJ. And also so I can play games and waste my time that way. But we'll see if I do end up getting one or not.

Ummm, let's see! The 28th was the Lady Gaga concert at the Pepsi Center, which was in a word: awesome. I had a good time, my friends seemed like they had a good time, and it was great to just dance to some good pop music.

I started a diet on the 26th; I think it's going pretty well! It's one of those diets that make you eat five or six times a day, which is something I'm still struggling with. Normally I eat two meals a day. So I've pretty much cut out all of the snacks they tell you to eat, since I feel full pretty much all of the time. I've also forgotten to eat breakfast most of the days since I started, but hopefully I'll start to get into the habit of doing that. [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] has been awesome in helping me with the diet; she's been cooking dinner for me and helping me keep on track. [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] also hooked up the Wii Fit for me, so I'm going to try and get up early to use that for at least half an hour every morning.

Work has been one pain in the ass after another. There's so much drama going on at the office right now; it's been a challenge to muster up the energy to even face it every day. One of my coworkers is an idiot, but when everyone complains about her to our boss, we're suddenly "picking on her" and "ganging up on her." In my opinion, if a lot of people complain about this particular woman, shouldn't that show that something is obviously wrong with the way she works? My boss is sacrificing the office morale for the sake of one person, and it's pissing me off. I've decided I'm done with all of that stuff-- I'm going to go in, do my work, and go home; hopefully I'll be able to skirt a lot of the stuff that's going on.

Sheena is also having a party on the 7th, and I honestly don't want to go now after everything that's happened in the last week. But, I already agreed to go, and I'm hoping it won't be as bad as I think. We'll see how I feel on Saturday, though.

My sister is home from CU for about a week or so; we're going to go have lunch tomorrow. Hopefully things will be better between us now than they were on my birthday. xD We did manage to have a civilized conversation on Sunday, when I went over to my parent's home for breakfast before my dad and I took a bike ride.

School starts on the 23rd, which will be nice. I won't feel so lazy every day when I get home from work, as long as I have a class to look forward to. I'm only taking Meteorology and then I'll finally be done at Front Range, so I'm hoping that I'll do well.

Other than that, not much has been going on. Just replaying some old video games and getting through a few books in my stack.

We finally have internet!

Now it's time to get a little more sleep.

I really question my sanity sometimes.

It's stupid to get depressed over a fricking book series. There's a reason why it's called fiction.

Ugh, I can't take this. I'm going to bed.

Whooo, got my final grade for my class. I was hoping for an A, but expected a B. And that's what I got. :D Still pretty damn good, though.

I'm so happy that school is over for the semester.

Time for bed, now that I finally have my grade and have played a bit of Darkside Chronicles.

Yesterday was pretty productive! I went to Book Lover's and traded in some books I had finished, eventually picking out 10 new ones for my reading pleasure. And I'm a little over halfway through The Last Legion. I've had that books for several years and hadn't read it, so I'm glad to finally be doing that.

Joe, Kira and I also saw Kick-Ass last night. I really enjoyed it! It was a fun flick, and I'll be sure to check out the sequel when it's released. I also watched Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog last night before bed. Neil Patrick Harris is so adorable.

Pick 20 movies/anime/video games/literary works and put their summaries from Better than it Sounds ( http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BetterThanItSounds ) and WITHOUT CHEATING have your friends guess.

Everything under here! )

Goodbye April and hello May. Thank god for that. April just sucked as a month, so I'm hoping May will be better. I don't think that staying up for almost 24 hours on Thursday really helped, either.

Since I just spent the last few hours going through my iTunes and updating it, here's a meme all about music. xD

Search these words in your iTunes and write down the first song of the list that comes up.

Happy: "So Happy I Could Die" by Lady Gaga.
Love: "I Want to Know What Love Is" by the Rock of Ages Broadway Cast.
Hate: "I Hate Myself For Loving You/Heat of the Moment" by the Rock of Ages Broadway Cast.
Light: "Moonlight Shadow" by DJ Mystik.
Dark: "Fearless (250 and Dark Stars)" by Falling Up.
Good: "Damn You Look Good and I'm Drunk" by Cobra Starship.
Bad: "Bad Company" by Bad Company.
Hello: "Hello" by Evanescence.
Bye: "Goodbye My Lover" by James Blunt.
Up: "Waking Up" By Julien-K.
Down: "The Final Countdown" by the Rock of Ages Broadway Cast.

I have a ton of music in my library; these songs are the first ones that showed up that I actually have checked.

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.

Lady Gaga tickets go on sale March 29th!

So effing excited.

Last night was the BBQ for Joe's birthday. It was pretty fun! I ended up staying over until about midnight, which is probably the longest I've stayed at any of our parties ever. xD I gave Joe his gift from Ana, Nic and me; he really seemed to like the books.

I bought some new sheets and some clothes yesterday afternoon. I'm really starting to appreciate Ross a lot. xD They have cheap stuff, and most of it is good quality. I found Hydraulic jeans there for $13.00 and queen sized jersey knit sheets for $20.00.

I've spent the last few hours doing stuff on XBox Live; most of it has been downloading the new RE5 stuff that came out. Now I need to finish up laundry, head to LotP and get a wig, then over to the library to return a book. After that, it may be food time.

Random questions. )
jupiterhalo: ([Supernatural] Four score and...)
Does anyone else think it's weird that you can receive CPR training online? I keep seeing ads for it when I go to log in to LJ. I don't think I'd trust anyone who got his/her training online to give me CPR. xD

Work needs to stop being a bitch. This week has been so horrible.

There is going to be a Krieg listening party at a club in Denver on the 26th. It sounds like fun! I really want to go. :< Too bad I probably won't be able to.

And finally, I am so tired of snow. Give us spring and let us keep it, damn it.

Bleh, guess I should go ahead and take a shower, seeing as how I'm up already.

Wasabi post is going to come in a bit, even though there's not that much to post about.

In other news, I know I'm going to jinx myself for saying this, but I think I'm finally almost back to normal. After, what, 4 years of depression and social anxiety? I've noticed that I haven't had a bad day in quite a long time... probably six to nine months, at least. Even though I don't feel the full spectrum of emotions like I think a normal person should, I've finally started to accept that it's okay that I don't. It doesn't mean that I'm any less normal than someone walking down the street. While I notice that I am bracing myself for if/when the other shoe drops, I'm starting to worry less and less about it.

I think my day can be summed up in about six words: I had a good day today. Even after it got off to a rocky start.
