Alone

Advertisements

Quarantine and a wack sleep schedule have dismissed the idea that I was ever going to be in my house alone for more than two hours. Now that both roommates are working, I’m all alone in my place, besides the animals of course, and it’s super weird. I’m not used to being left to my own devices for too long. I mean, on one hand, I can do whatever I want all morning right? 

My morning starts with being bullied out of bed by two hungry, and rather large cats. I say that, I bully myself because I love them too much and don’t want anything bad to happen to them. And Midna is a good girl too who has THE SMALLEST BLADDER EVER! Dogs…

What a cute puppy!

Now on with the rest of my day. Jordan is home first at 3:30ish. By this time it’s about 8:30 or 9:00 in the morning and I’m freaking out mildly. I have too much time alone and don’t know what to do. I’m trying to get into a routine with cleaning right away in the morning. If I can burn all of my “AHH!!!” energy right away, I’ll have been somewhat productive, right? Dishes are always somehow dirty?? Literally I don’t even understand how I own so many dishes that cannot be kept clean??? And I just did so much laundry recently I’m scared of my next water bill.

Lunch time rolls around and I have nothing left I need to do. By now my brain is trying to drive me insane. To deal with this, I either start gaming, deep cleaning a room, or attempt to write some more. I never stick to it though as YouTube usually takes my attention. Instant entertainment is dangerous really. That or I can’t stay home anymore and I just got for a walk.

I found him walking around the other day

Realization kicks in that I’ve spent at least a few hours doing literally nothing and that I’m hungry. Jordan should be home soon, so I’ll essentially make him an early dinner and myself a late lunch. That works! My famous chicken and hash browns! That’s a joke. It’s pretty good, but I am anything but a chef. Comfort food is the best.

With one roommate home, that means only a few hours until the other one is back too. Overall I’ve been alone for about seven hours. I’ve been alone longer at work, but for some bizarre reason, this sucks so much for me. I say that, but I have abandonment issues. But yeah, I spent a bit of time alone, and I hate it.

He got whipped cream on his whisker!

That’s all I’ve got for today though. Thanks for stopping by today, you’re amazing! Stay safe out there! I’ll talk soon!

Rough News

Advertisements

I got bullied into giving up my position at the Adult Store. I don’t know what I did, but honestly there’s not a lot I can do about it. With that, I spent an unholy amount of time writing up a hefty Patreon post with a rough idea on what I’m going to do now. What’s my Patreon you ask, well it’s the only thing with the same name as my website!
Because I’m me, I figured I’d write out what I said again so if you want the extended version, which you probably don’t, it’s here. 

With having so much more free time on my hands, I’ve decided I’m going to invest that into my blog, my writing, and my photography. My website could use and expansion, and I could stand to learn some tips on handling this sucker better. There are probably a trillion different resources out there too, so I’m good.

Graffiti out the Wazoo

I mostly want to do this more, so I’ve planned out some scheduling updates and future plans. They’re not bad, I promise. It’s just more of me. 
Right now, I just post something on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s. I have my closet almost finished, so why not do something fun with fashion? It won’t always be me playing dress-up, because I like looking at what’s new and different trends, so I figured something like “Fashion Friday”. Maybe even throw in my attempts at learning makeup into that and I’ll be ready to go!
I also really enjoy gaming, and with having nothing to do all weekend, Monday GameDay is what I’m thinking. That gives me two days to try something new, or invest time into something I really enjoy. Plus I can buy Turnips on Sunday so… But yeah, some schedule updates for the near future. I say the near future, but I have a few more things I have to still do.

My writing and photography skills are not of legend, but that doesn’t mean I should give up on them. I’m going to take the time to hopefully finish a draft or two of my novel this year, and buy a camera. For those who are curious, since my last novel update I’ve written maybe three words. It’s rough I know. And with photography, I live in such a beautiful place, I would live to show it to the world. Even if I don’t buy a camera right away, my phone does a really good job.

I want to grow who I am on the internet and as a person. With that, I need help. I know not everyone has the money to spare, so please, follow my social media, comment on stuff, and share who I am with people you know. I’m always around and I really enjoy everything that has come out of this hobby I started almost year ago now.
I appreciate all of you, and I cannot say that enough. Without you, I wouldn’t have made it this far. You mean a lot to me, and I hope you all are safe and well right now.

Some Good Boys

I know I say it a lot, but thank you so much for stopping by today. Be safe!

Back to Work

Advertisements

I know right, LAME! For the past, oh I don’t know, month-ish, I’ve been at home off work because the world has been low key ending. I mean I don’t mind too much, I get to go back and make more adventure stories, but at the same time, I’ve really learned that overworking myself like I was isn’t what I want to do anymore. I want to have time with my friends, and to have time to garden and enjoy life. I also have to look at getting a job with more pay, because that’s what’s going to hinder me the most with getting a house.

I’ve been still doing my Tuesday’s with getting yelled at for twelve hours at a time, but other than that, I haven’t been doing much besides living my best life. My computer is finally built even, so I’d rather be home and gaming or creating content. Plus I have a couple more things I have to do in my trailer before I can list it.

My dad’s lilac tree!

I made some calls and asked way too many questions so I think I understand the problem I was having looking at places to purchase. That problem being I just don’t make enough money. With that in mind, I need to change what kind of property I’m looking at. The down payment I’ll have just isn’t good enough. I’ve been learning a lot and it’s really opening my eyes to the idea that I’m going to be a corporate slave forever.

With going back, I can’t work for as little as I make right now, which is too bad because I really enjoy my job. I’m going to have to look at some other opportunities to try and make enough. And if I do end up buying a property in the near future, I want to be able to manage it and not cry every time bills are due. I’ve applied for a few jobs now, so fingers crossed I get something back!

This rhubarb is so dang pretty!

I’ll still keep to my schedule for posting as best I can. I don’t see it becoming a problem, but my memory is trash after all. Plus I may open up streaming or something eventually. But yeah, that’s all I’ve got for today. Thanks as always for stopping by, have an awesome day!

April Showers

It’s day two of April, and day twelve of not working a proper amount of hours. The sun is absolutely beaming into my room giving the illusion of warmth from the outside. In all reality, it’s just above freezing and I’m still exhausted from trying to stay awake way too late last night. Excessive amounts of blankets are my only safety from lingering shivers.

I almost wasn’t going to write anything today and just continue to sleep for the next few hours, or even the rest of the day honestly. However, today is Thursday and being tired can make creative juices flow, so here I am.

When I finally rolled over to grab my phone for the day, I had the most amazing idea, I should build a barn door! I’m overly ambitious sometimes, I know. Hear me out, so roommate’s room doesn’t have a door. The old canning room of the trailer just has never had one for as long as I can remember. Because of this, her pets, and Shadow too honestly, can just be pests to her sanity. I say pests; the cats chirp at each other before sunrise for like two hours, and the dog is our resident burglar alarm. Poor girl I feel like she could use a real door now. And that’s why I want to make a sliding barn door.

My dumbass was watching every video I could find on YouTube about it for hours this morning. I know I could totally build one too. Watching all these tutorials has taught me literally just a pattern since I know how to use a saw and drill. I’m going to lose the ambition real quick I think. A friend of mine installs doors and windows for a living: he’s coming by this weekend to check out what’s going down with the doors for me.

Other than that, I’m actually writing again, which is super cool. Writing requires research, so I’m learning a lot about random shit too. I’ll have to dedicate a post to things I’d never thought I’d need to know. Maybe a good bonus post?
Being in quarantine is fun…

If I end up deciding I’d rather to something physical, I’ll just pull out my roller blades. I can stand, get up, and roll in them. That’s really all I can do though, so today might be a good time to try and actually practice them.

I feel like there’s so many things to do, but also the idea that I have a long time to do them. It’s refreshing. However, that’s all I’ve got for today. Thank you so much for reading, stay safe!

In Case of Emergency

Advertisements

And by emergency I mean corona virus, or Covid-19. If I have to lock myself away for an extended period of time I’m going to go nuts. Who wouldn’t though..? So I’ve made myself a checklist of things I can or honestly should do. If I don’t make a list, I will forget and then I will stay bored. I will probably still have to dispatch at the very least as we have government accounts for moving people around. But then I’ll have five more days off in a week…

I bought a Nintendo Switch! The special Animal Crossing one finally came in and holy frick it is so cute! The game itself doesn’t come out until the 20th, but I have Zelda and Rune Factory to keep me busy. And if you haven’t bought this unit yet, honestly I recommend it! There’s something about dissociating for like four hours while you farm turnips and befriend villagers that just makes everything better. Plus like, ANIMAL CROSSING! I’ve been hyped up for this game since it was announced. Casual games are my weakness.

LOOK AT HOW PRETTY IT IS <3

Cleaning… Because I have to do it. I’ve got like two weeks until my new roommate moves in and I have to redo the floor in her room still… And paint the one wall, and put in some shelves in the closet.. It’s all around just a mess. Tomorrow she’s starting to bring some furniture in and I have to be ready. Honestly I need to take some time off but I can’t. I overwork myself. (I mean, I would have time off if we went quarantine mode but what ever.)

Rebuilding my blog for the thousandth time, because I can right? There’s something about adding new functions and sub menus and such that just makes me feel super cool. Although I’d have to catch some tutorials on what to do since I don’t code.

Yeah I know I should write more. I promise I add some words to my book once in awhile. But with a couple weeks of not leaving the house, I may have to see if I can pull an all nighter like that one night in England where I was up all night just typing. I’d probably enjoy it more if I had a set spot where I could just sink into the pages. I’m going to have a devoted study one day in my future house.

A local Starbucks. This was weird to see to be honest

Workout progress is in picture too honestly. Like, that long on lock down, I could make some real gains. In two weeks I could lift my own ego! That’s not funny and I know it... Imagine the legs a person could have after just two weeks, or lack there of depending. Plus most places don’t deliver food to my house, so I’d have to actually eat healthy.

Man, I should put myself of isolation and just watch what I do. I feel like I could be extra productive and finally get some stuff done! But at the same time, this pandemic is a real problem. I’m not worried about myself because I know a flu won’t kill me. There are a few people in my life however that a flu, especially a bad one, could realistically kill them. Please, for the sake of the people around you, be careful and don’t forget to care about others too.
Stay safe, and thanks for reading this today <3
