So much going on, and yet not really much at all. I apologize for being out of the loop. Everything comes to a head at the end of the semester. I'm super busy at work and school stuff all becomes due in a hurry to finish up the semester. I am behind on my journal reading but have begun to play the catch up game. I hope to be all caught up by the time this weekend is over. There are some journals that I am 20+ entries behind on!
I've been messing with the look of my journal. I'm not really all that happy with it. When I selected this background color it was grouped with the blues but it has more of a purple-ish tone to it so I'm leaning towards purple accents and I'm not a purple person. I'm a blue person. I actually thought about going white and even tried it but it has such a harsh feel about it. It's just not me. I like it to feel warm and comforting here. I'll mess with it more as time goes by.
I changed the pic in my "About Me" section. It's not the greatest but at least it is more recent. The one I had there was from last June. The pic I have there now is my work-day segue into class look. I'm disheveled, my make-up is smeared, my face is shiny and I am beat. That's my Tuesday night look. Oh, and yes, I wear glasses. I work in an enclosed environment and stare at a computer screen all day. As such, wearing my contacts is not an option. When I do my eyes are burning and irritated by about 3:00pm. At least when I wear my glasses, it doesn't happen until about 6 or 7. I think it's more because of my make-up though then anything, even the hypo-allergenic kind doesn't help. There have been times where I've actually had to pull off the road as I'm driving home from work because my eyes begin burning so bad that I am blinded, not in an everything goes black kind of way but in a watery, blurred vision kind of way.
You are probably wondering why I have the picture of drinks here. Tuesday was my last class for the semester. Yeeha! We got out of class early and met up for drinks to celebrate the end of the semester. It was nice but I ended up leaving much earlier than everyone else. Sitting around for too long makes me restless. So, I came home and tried to read a few journals. I was so sleepy that I began falling asleep as I was reading entries. As such, I didn't getvery far. I woke yesterday after getting 8hours of sleep. It was so nice! It's probably the first full night's sleep that I have had since my vacation in December. I knew we were going for drinks Tuesday so I took a vacation day on Wednesday. I figured I would have stayed out late and didn't want to be hurting the next day at work. Little did I know I would be home before 10pm! I guess I'm getting old. The party girl of yester-years has left me.
It was weird having off during the week. I felt like I should stay home and pretend like I was sick, kind of like I was playing hooky. But, I didn't. I went to the dog-park and hung out with Freee as she did her thing. I got a chance to give her the birthday present I got for her. I knew I would arrive before her so I bought a book while on the way so I could read it while I waited. It's the one I have listed in my sidebar. I look forward to doing a review here. From what I have read so far, it is a great book. It was nice sitting outside, reading and enjoying the day. I got a little bit of a sunburn, but it feels good in a warm summery kind of way.
Well, enough of my rambling. I need to get ready for work. I will pick up my Questions for the Game of Life and my audio entries next week. I took pics yesterday so hopefully some came out okay and I can share them here. Happy Thursday!
