“I will tickle you all back to health”

“Klonex: Oh my.. I will tickle you all back to health.
Corrderio: Thanks.”

Gamer culture is weird, but that’s probably why I like it. Yesterday, I put in a 14 hour day at work followed by an hour or two of gaming.  I was having back spasms yesterday and that really put a damper on my mood.  Our guild had an event night last night, though, so it was fun to just give in to the distraction.

Yesterday wasn’t all bad, though.  I made it to and from work without incident, had a marginally healthy day, and got to talk to my friend Lyz for about an hour on the phone.  It was really actually pretty good.

Today, I’m hitting the books, writing an essay, taking an exam, and hitting the gym.

This is the homework police – step away from the internet!!

Facebook, pinterest, iwastesomuchtime.com, sparkpeople, gmail, pinterest, facebook, oriental trading catalogue, youtube, wordpress…

Nope, I don’t have trouble focusing at. all. …

At least I got it together long enough to dye my hair yesterday.  The highlights were positively atrocious by the time I bought the box and fixed it.  Originally I got the highlights to impress my fiance because he was going to be in the company of comparably more-beautiful women and I wanted to show a little effort.  The subtle caramel highlights that I *asked* for, though, had turned into crazy brassy blonde streaks..

Huh. Twenty minutes later and I’ve got cellphone, facebook, sourcefed, gmail, mspaint, and now back to WordPress.  How’s that studying going?

Oh, yes. I love my “new” (old) hair.  It’s back to my “natural” hair color and I was turning heads at work today.  “There’s something… different… about you…You just seem prettier.”

Anyway.. Work is.. work.  Very busy/frustrating today.  My weekend went very well–most of it was spent watching Buffy The Vampire Slayer on Netflix with Jeff.  It’d tough to switch from that show to Ringer.. Sarah Michelle Gellar is such a great actress, though, that I can distinguish Buffy from Siobhan from Bridget-playing-Siobhan from Bridget-playing-herself (played by Sarah Michelle Gellar).  Have you seen that show?  It’s pretty good.  Also on Netflix.

The switch back to standard time is helping me to get my sleeping back on track.  Except for the fact that it’s supposed to be 10:30pm according to my internal clock and I’m just kind of wired.  Of course, that might be due to the five laffy taffy’s I just had about 20 minutes ago…

I’m really just off track.  I need to get my sleeping in order so that I can get my fitness in order and if those two fall in line then eating will fall in line naturally.  And then, maybe I can better focus.  And sleep.  And write.

Thanks for reading.  I am sure I will come up with something better for you soon 🙂

OH!

Here’s something better – the latest screenshot from GW2.  There was a halloween event.. I was a ghost–best costume evar.

Choices: compromise for success

I figured out last night that they shut off the a/c at 8, and the lights at 9. I studied by the glow of my computer until about 9:30 and then called it a night.

Being an adult is hard, lol..

There are days when I kick myself for going to work instead of finishing college first. But, the thing is, I love the work that I do, the people that I work with, and the opportunities that I have to grow and progress in my career. No, it’s not easy to do it all, when it all is so much some times, but I am glad that I have the opportunity to do so, and the support from all of my family and my friends.

I also figured out why freshman gain 15 pounds their first year–“dinner” last night was Nutter Butter Bites and a Pearson’s Nut Roll.  Had I gone home, I would’ve had baked salmon with lemon and pepper, but I also wouldn’t have gotten as much done.  These are the choices we make.
