My Week Off


Monday was quiet, the roommate and I didn’t do a whole lot. She was having an off day, so I let her play Halo with some of my friends overseas. I, on the other hand, took Midna to the beach with her best friend Taz. It was a good relaxing day for sure. The dog beach we went to had a ton of people Taz’ dad knew so I was all quiet and awkward. Prime first impressions, am I right? I know, I’m shy at the oddest of times, but it’s fine.

Midna is such good girl

Tuesday was just another Tuesday. I worked, caught some League of Legends streams, got super invested in the new game Fall Guys, and laughed with my cab drivers. I had a driver almost get screwed out of $277, but somehow the universe loves him enough and it worked out. It was a huge deal, cops were involved, I couldn’t help but think “for that kind of money, why not just ask for it in advance,” but whatever. That kind of good luck or karma? is wonderful and we all could use some more of that.

My lovely roommate has got me into The Good Place on Netflix. That show is hilarious! I think we’re a couple episodes into the second season, but I highly recommend it. I’ve had a great time the whole time. About once a week, her and I watch a few episodes together until I get just too tired. The characters are well written and the setting is just perfect. We always stay up WAY past my bedtime, so about eleven or twelve at night, and I’m usually way too invested

Wednesday, the roommate started doing some noon till eight shifts, so having the morning is exciting!
Once back from taking her to work, I’m having sushi with an old friend from high school. I’m excited to tell her that I have no idea who she is… I’ll probably devote a post to that. At least, if much happens.

Not a whole lot happened. Her and I chatted, ate some sushi and went on a nice walk down by the lake. Nice chick, and I’m glad I reconnected with her! Man I sure have booked today up. I still have to go out to play some Magic. Maybe I’ll grab some dinner too while I’m out.

We got to play in Twice the Dice, which I believe I’ve mentioned before. They took over for the viking bar in town and now sell board games and a really good London Fog. I went out with the ex to play as we still hang out, and I really need to step up my Magic game because I’m so tired of losing! 

When I got home, the lovely roommate surprised me with some dollar store plates and permanent markers. Our goal, write all the bad things we think or hear about ourselves on these plates, and then smash them. Mine was an absolute mess, words scribbled all over and tons of overlap, hers was much more neat and quite easy to read. After we finished, we went outside and just threw them to the ground. Who needs therapy! That’s a joke… I need therapy...

Thursday is cleanup day. Took the roommate to work, did the litter boxes, swept my whole house and then was finally able to relax. 
Same with Friday. Friday was quiet. I played an unholy amount of Stardew Valley. Ended the night with Fall Guys and Sims. 

Beautiful views of West Kelowna

Saturday, O’Keefe Ranch. Dad wanted to go to the candy store, and I made friends with goats! In primary school, we apparently went there on a field trip, but I definitely have no idea. They’re like, an actual ranch still though, so goats, a nice donkey, and the sheep were great. I didn’t pay enough attention to the history of the place, that’s my bad. There were goats!

And the donkey!

Sunday was a rough day. I slept most of it. Don’t know what hit me but my overall mood was rather low. When I finally got out of bed, I played some Fall Guys with some friends. So I guess it wasn’t all bad! Oh, that and my dad and I are going to get through the last few seasons of Game of Thrones. Apparently he never finished it so… Woo! We’re going to finish season six and then I’m going to convince him to binge it with me. But, that’s for another day.

So, as you can tell, I’m the most interesting person ever. All in all, it’s been a good bit of time to devote to other things. Thanks for coming by, and for sticking around. Stay safe out there!
