Day 241: ( Strike #2): Patience is something I need to work on but at least I now see it and can work on it.. It hit me as to how bothered the actions of others really affect me this evening. My head started hurting and my pulse sped up after three different things didn’t play out like I had thought they would. I’m a person who does well with plans and structure but nothing ever goes according to plan and I need to be more chill but its hard. Getting ready and then waiting around wasting my day waiting on people getting a plan in play is annoying.
Enough of that I was asked to go to dinner with a friend and though I was pretty tired,hungry and upset I decided to pick him up and have dinner at a new location..We’re at 2 strikes with picking places to eat so next time hopefully will be a homerun or we’re out. Poor choices but hey we at least give new places a shot…right? I had an OK dinner this evening and will never return to this establishment but it was nice being out and social after a long day of working solo.. “No bacon please”………(and then I find bacon mid bite) ugh. Bacon=bad things.
Anyway, The Horny Toad cafe & bar was an odd experience for sure. The building reminded me of a remodeled Rosa’s cafe but with western FortWorthish decor on the wall and then the music was a whole different theme “shake rattle and roll” <— Mass confusion and terrible service.
Early to bed early to rise.. Goodnight world enough of my stupid ramble.
-Until next time

Day 240:( What was the best part about today?) :This is often what I ask people around me not only out of curiosity but also to get people thinking back through their day remembering a few high points and or low points. Today was yet another productive day and I’m getting into the swing of things but I still haven’t adapted to how draining filing, scanning and repeat can be. The best part about my day would have to be getting to catch up with a goofy fella I haven’t seen in awhile. I had to force him to have dinner with me so I could actually see him but HEY! even better we had chinese! Good chatter and good company… the food was mehh ok:)
Tomorrow is friday! Get pumped, work hard and clock out 3 or so minutes early.. Saturday is also coming up fast and I am excited because I get to pick up a special someone from the airport:) Hurry home. ( Side note: Everything’s better with Jello)
-Until next time

My #WCW goes out to this special lady. Mrs. Vicki is such a positive kind hearted individual who I look up to and am a stronger person because of her. Vicki never lost that smile or spunky upbeat personality even in the worst of times mid fight battling cancer. She’s a warrior and not only beat cancer once, but she beat it twice and today is living life to the fullest. I love you Mrs.Vicki you truly are an inspiration and you gave me the energy and drive when I needed it most. Just live life to the fullest and spend it with people who try and find the beauty in each day. #wcw #Wacotx
Day 239: (Just because):Today was national “Just Because” day according too one of those silly calendar sites and I like it!. I posted on Facebook this morning challenging my friends and family to do something Just Because and i’m curious as to what everyone did.
I walked two miles round trip to get coffee this morning “just because”. I had a coupon for a free coffee and it was perfect walking weather before 7am.
This morning was perfect and then BOOM! Things changed fast and I wasn’t feeling good at all. I’m so frustrated but i’m feeling better now finally so I shouldn’t complain too much. I’m thankful I was off today and I think it worked out perfectly for,(days when I want to cut my stomach open and massage my intestines, or heck I would even settle for someone standing on my stomach for a bit). Weird/odd/weird.. I know. :(
Today was a struggle and I stood by the door for a good five or so minutes just giving myself a pep talk to prepare for the journey to class. It’s day two and I wasn’t about to miss it! Pep talks are so lame but they’re just what we need sometimes to, “just keep swimming.” …….Did I just quote Finding Nemo? HA! It’s mid- week everyone. The long weekend is near:) Just keep swimming
-Until next time

Day 238:( stacks on stacks on stacks): Eight hours in a room without a window and little interaction outside my potty breaks and mid day stretches makes for a long day.I try and get into the zone and just go at it but everyone hits that wall, time slows down and all you want is for lunch to be here. What am I going to eat today? fat-ace it, or go small? You know, all the normal thoughts before lunchtime happened today.. No offense to anyone who does this for their full time job, I just know that movement and excitement is what is needed for me to be happy. Mentally I’m drained but I’m pretty satisfied with my work today. I know a few files got placed under the wrong barcode but the main thing is they are in the system and can be accessed.
“WORK WITH ME” is what I kept saying repeatedly in my final twenty minutes of work today. The computer was loading slowly and the copier said,” to hell with you, i’m done”, so I did what I could and called it a day. Laugh a little
I’m actually excited to attend class tomorrow. Who says that? This is going to be a challenging but beneficial course
and she seems to really take an interest in her students.

Day 237:(I’ve got a feeling ): I’ve got a
feeling this is going to be a great semester. I was pretty nervous about going to my class today with my professor being new and me unable to dig up info on the web about her courses.Yes, I’m a creeper and i’ll admit to that but I know every other student does the same thing out of curiosity as to what to expect for the semester.(or not?)
Today was pretty full with work this morning and then school but I’m satisfied with how things are starting off and I’m eager to get things rolling along. Mark it off! Day one is complete!
I got to catch up with two good friends of mine making today even better. Nida is my amazing friend whom I met last semester. She’s quite shy but soon enough I reeled her in and now she won’t shut up! :) Later on I met up with one of my gingers for dinner and frozen yogurt ending the day on an even better note!Glad you’re back ALEYCAT i’ve missed you dollface. Positive vibes today…Positive vibes. - Until next time

Day 236:( To the end of an amazing summer):Cheers! Today wraps up one of the most life changing summers for myself and I couldn’t be happier with all that I have accomplished in only a short time. Now things weren’t always glitter and sunshine but I sure as heck tried my best to find the beauty in
each day regardless of the situation or challenge thrown my way. I trip over my own two feet. I fall into old ways and I have negative thoughts still come to me but it’s a matter of how I react to them and know when i’m slipping.
To the challenges, memories, new friends and creepers. I’ll say this has been one of the best summers of my life and I wouldn’t change a thing about it.. This has been a summer of growth, confidence and definitely a self esteem boost allowing me to really see what all I can accomplish just by stepping out of my comfort zone and going for things.
“When you plant a seed of love, it is you that blossoms.” -Ma Jaya Sati Bhagavati
Tomorrow I start my last/ first day of school…..(Hopefully)and I couldn’t be more excited and nervous at the same time. Anxiety has always been an issue for myself and people can sense change is coming when I start overly cleaning things or HECK even checking my stove 5 or so times before leaving just to make sure it is off. Trapped within my own head at times is a shittay thing to live with but I’ll say I’ve come a long long way. To a great start of the week, semester and next phase in life. *( This is some home grown cotton by the way… Pretty cool huh?)
