Not Exactly How I Planned to Start my Weekend

Good Saturday Afternoon, World!!! I did not get much sleep last night due to insomnia. When I did finally get to sleep a neighbor pulled the fire alarm on several occasions due to the fact other neighbors weren’t wearing their mask. I understand being frustrated others not wearing mask because we are in a middle of pandemic with Covid-19. That doesn’t me you pull a fire alarm because someone is not wearing a mask. Needless to say, I am extremely frustrated that this is still continuing and the police and apartment management company are doing shit. The fire department is fining the individual pulling the alarm as well the apartment management. So, at least the fire department is doing something about it.

On that note, my grandpa and uncle came over to drop some things off for me. They brought me some cough medicine as well cough drops because I am still dealing with the annoying and painful cough that is still lingering from having Covid-19. They even made me one of my favorite food and brought it me which is Cheese Tortellini. It was yummy and have some left over for dinner tonight. Oh how I love that my grandpa made me my favorite dish and that my uncle drove him to give it to me. And much to my surprise my uncle paid me back the money he owed be and gave me an extra $20 “for interest” because it took him so long to pay me back.

Now I am going to cuddle with my cat, Billie Dean, on my lap and watch a couple of movies. I’m not sure what movies I am going to watch but I know for a fact that Billie won’t mind spending a few hours on my lap as I do nothing but watch a movie or two.

Too Early to Be Awake on a Saturday Morning

Good Morning, World!!! It is just barely four o’clock in the morning Seattle time and I have been awake is just before three o’clock in the morning Seattle time. Not sure if it is the insomnia keeping me awake or if it is the Covid-19 cough keep me up or both. Whatever the reason, I just want to go back to sleep but that will be a bit hard to do at the moment as Billie Dean my cat is now being active since I am up. He is wanting to play which I will oblige. It also appears that some of my neighbors can’t sleep either. It appears many of us have sleepless nights on the same nights as I wonder if there something to do that. Whatever that reason, I am going to try to go back to sleep.

I’m not sure how I will try to get back to sleep I will make an attempt to go back to sleep as I want to get better from having stupid Covid-19. But least my sweet loving cat Billie will be doing his best to help me sleep. I love my cuddle bug of a cat. I love my cat so very much and don’t know how I would manage the hold Covid shit the last two years without him.

A Lazy Three Day Weekend at Home

Happy Friday, World!!! It’s a three day weekend here in the states. Martin Luther King Jr. day on Monday to honor him. I wish I had been alive to see him speak as he was a great and honorable man fighting for right of people of color.

On that note I plan on having a lazy three day weekend at home with my cat, Billie Dean. I love my Billie so much and he is such a love bug. I plan on doing a lot of lazy type things. One of the things I plan on doing is watching movies and television show via streaming sites. I’m pretty sure Billie will be in my lap when I do these activities.

I also plan on doing some art. Specifically, I plan on coloring. I plan on coloring as listen to a podcast. In fact I plan on listening to a podcast about philosophy. The philosophy podcast I plan on listening to is “Philosophize This.” I really enjoy listening to a podcast as I do something creative or clean but I don’t plan on cleaning this weekend as I am still dealing with Covid-19.

Dealing with Covid-19 sucks shit. I still feel like crap but I am feeling much better than I did when I was diagnosed with Coivid-19. As shitty as having Coivd-19 is I am grateful that I wasn’t hospitalized for it. I’m still coughing up a storm and feeling fatigue with brain fog. I also still have some loose bowl movements but at least they are becoming more solid. I’m sure you didn’t want to know about my bowl movements.

I do not have much more to say in this particular blog post. I do want thank you for reading my blog. If it wasn’t for you reading my blog I would not be writing it. That is why I greatly appreciate you the reader, reading my blog. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. I hope everyone has a great weekend. Peace Out, World!!!

A Little Early to be Up on a Saturday Morning

Good Morning, World!!! It is really early on a Saturday morning here in Seattle. Since I am up so early and unable to sleep, I think I will be as productive as possible as I can be right now in this moment of time.

The thinking about the what I am doing it reading about books that can help me with both my professional and preanal lives just like reading a book about philosophy that can help with my professional and personal life.

I also feel like listening to a podcast about philosophy can be helpful in my life as a whole including relationship with friendships. All this stuff has some intersect abilities to it. Something, I would to like to learn more about it.

I fell like as early as it is on a Saturday morning in a middle of a weekend, this will help me build better relationships even the relationships that are not the best relationships.

As far as reading books about relationships and listening to podcast on philosophy will help me become a better person as well as a better cat owner to my cat Billie Dean. Billie is a great way to put philosophy and relationships together.

I do not have much more to say regarding this particular blog post. Thank for reading my blog post. It is greatly appreciated from my end of thing that you the reader that you read my blog.

Awake Too Early on a Saturday Morning

Good Morning, World!!! It is five fifty nine in the morning and I woke up from a not so fun nightmare That is related to PTSD. My cat Billie Dean is laying on my lap as I type this really short blog post as I would like to go back to sleep since it is Saturday morning. As much as I wish I was still asleep I am grateful for my cat, Billie knowing what to do after waking up from a horrific nightmare.

I don’t have much to say in this particular blog post because I want to get back to sleep. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things that you the reader do read my blog. If it wasn’t for the reader reading my blog, I wouldn’t be writing my blog.

Grateful for the Weekend

Happy Friday Evening, World!!! I am now off work for the weekend and am grateful to have the time off. On that note my direct supervisor is back from leave and I am more than thrilled that she is back. I am beyond thrilled she is back because she supervises with a style that not only can I learn from her but she can learn from me. I really like the fact that my supervisor is willing to teach me as well as learn from me. Not very many supervisors do that.

Now that the weekend has officially started for me I plan to just sit back really not do much. My weekend will consist of doing art work and listening to podcast. Specifically, the type of art work I will be doing is coloring. Coloring is a form of mindful meditation practice for me. While I color this weekend, I will me listening to a podcast on philosophy. The specific podcast on philosophy that I will be listening to while I color is Philosophize This. I love learning things as I create things.

I don’t have much more to say in this particular blog post except that I am so happy it is the weekend. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things that you the reader, read my blog. If it wasn’t for you the reader, reading my blog, I would not be writing my blog.

It’s Friday & the Start of the Weekend for Most People

Happy Friday, World!!! Friday’s are the start of the weekends for most people who would nine to five jobs, Monday through Friday. This schedule is similar to mine most weeks except this week as I needed to take a mental health day from work. I slept most of the day and am still sleepy as hell even though it is evening in here in Seattle.

I think the only reason why I am not I am not napping at the moment is because I am waiting for a package from Amazon. We all know how Amazon is with packages. They either claim to be delivered when they are not or they don’t follow delivery instructions which could lead to theft of the package. I am some are supplies I am expecting so I can do some coloring in my coloring book that will make it stand out more color wise.

As I sit here typing this blog post, I am listening to my favorite podcast on philosophy. That podcast is Philosophize This. I highly encourage you to listen to it. I know philosophy isn’t everyone’s cup a tea but I do ask that you give it a try to listen to the first two or three episodes.

I do not have much more to say in this particular blog post. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things that you do read my blog post because if it wasn’t for you my reading I wouldn’t be writing my blog. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. I hope everyone has a great weekend ahead. Peace Out, World!!!

A Friday the 13th Post

Happy Friday the 13th, World!!! It is the start of another weekend for me and it happens to be Friday the 13th. I really like Friday the 13th for some reason. I am not sure why but I do. Maybe it is because people think it is a day of bad luck when it is not.

I am glad to be home from work. It has been a long week at work. It has also been a good week at work. Today, work went by fast and I am thrilled about that. I am also thrilled that I went into the office today since the office has air conditioning and my air conditioning isn’t set up yet.

It is a hot day in Seattle today. Not as hot as it was back in June but hot enough to be some place with an air conditioner. This summer has reminded me a great deal about my childhood in California due to the heat and the not so lovely smog. I miss certain things about California and smog is not one of the things I miss. Living in Washington (State) has its advantages and one of those advantages is not dealing with smog. Sadly, smog is starting to be a common thing during the summer here.

Despite it being nice and warm here in Seattle, I am going to stay inside most of the weekend. The reason being is because whenever there is a Friday the 13th, I do a movie marathon of watching all twelve Friday the 13th movies. Yes, I now that is weird but it is something I have done for my mental health recovery that happens two to three times a year but doesn’t happen too often and is something to look forward to. I know the movies are corny and old school but that’s what makes it special.

As I spend the weekend watching Friday the 13th movies, that means I will be spending it with my cat, Billie Dean. I am looking forward to watching movies with my cat, Billie. When I was a teenager and twenty something, I never thought a weekend at home watching movies with my cat would be fun or relaxing. Oh how things change as weekends at home is always a good thing.

I do not have much more to say in this particular blog post. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things that you read my blog. If it was not for you my reader, I would not be writing my blog. Again, thank you very much from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. I hope everyone has a good Friday the 13th. Peace Out, World!!!

Looking Forward to the Long Weekend

Good Evening, World!!! Its late Friday evening and the start of a long weekend for the United States due to Memorial Day. It is a day we remember fallen soldiers who gave their life for this country. For them and all veterans I am grateful for my freedom.

Memorial Day weekend is a three day weekend for the United States however it will be a four day weekend for me. It will be a four day weekend for me because I am taking Tuesday off. I am taking Tuesday off because I am going to Bremerton on Sunday to spend a couple of nights there. I thought it would be good for me as getting away for a few days can be refreshing.

Since I will be gone for two nights, my cat, Billie Dean will be going to my grandpa’s tomorrow (Saturday) to spend a few days. I know I could have my grandpa come to my apartment to take care of my cat once a day or have a neighbor do it but I don’t want Billie to be lonely. Plus, my grandpa and two uncles enjoy having Billie around even if they are too stubborn to admit it. I notice when my family has Billie around that their moods appear to be in a better place.

Speaking of moods, my depression and anxiety have been acting up. I am not exactly sure why but I am hopeful that the symptoms won’t be increasing. I am hopeful because I know what I can do to help myself. One of those ways is getting out of town every once in awhile and I am doing that this weekend.

I do not have much more to discuss in this particular blog post. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things that you read my blog. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my heart. I am beyond grateful that you read my blog. I hope everyone has a great long weekend ahead of them. Peace Out, World!!!

Early Saturday Morning Post

Good Morning, World!!! It is five thirty eight in the morning on a Saturday and you are most likely thinking why I am up before the butt crack of dawn. I am up before the butt crack of dawn  because I work tonight, Saturday, a twelve and a half hour shift. Thankfully, it is only one shift a week even though I am still considered on call staff but have it slightly easier advantage than other on calls due to the fact is I am able to say no to taking other shifts than the two other new on calls due to having one regular shift a week. It was actually nice to know that I am now not the only on-call and that I have slightly more rights to say no to taking on shift due to the fact I work every Saturday. It is still preferred that I do take one on call shift once every two months. Specifically my boss wants me to focus on Saturdays and emergency call outs such as a family emergency, someone being sick and stuff like that. Of course every on-call is required do that however I might still be able to to be asked to cover someone’s shift if they are on vocation or “spontaneously moving” or taking a mental health day. I just don’t have to “feel obligated” to do so. I am liking the regular shift despite find out that I am still on-call but it looks good on the resume. I did apply for a peer position job that I think that would be a good fit for me and applied for it both Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. I haven’t received a call back and I am not expecting one due not being employed as a peer for two years now and that I didn’t have a job for a year and half which is why I am still at my current job. It is easier to get your resume to be looked at my a human if you have work and/or volunteering. I do both which is a good. thing for the resume.

I have been awake all night due to the fact I have to work tonight (Saturday) and have to sleep during the day. I am not a big fan of sleeping during the day or working twelve and a half hour night shift but at least it is a job. So as my Saturday goes, I will be sleep most of the day. Sleep I could have done last night but I want to go to work well rest. Even if I wasn’t working tonight I don’t think I could have slept due to my stupid insomnia so lets hope I can sleep during the day and not have my insomnia involved.

I pretty much listened t music most of the night music that would be helpful since I decided to be creative tonight by doing various types of art. Mainly coloring and painting with limited collaging due to the lack of magazines and newspapers. I put on my grunge rock play list that has  some many various musicians that it would take too long to post who was all on my music playlist. My grunge music play list did help my with my creativity in regards to my art work. My coloring pages are coming out nicely despite it taking longer than expected. My painting slowly but surely becoming a picture that I am going to be happy with.

As far as my cat goes, she has been much appreciated that I have been up and awake during her waking hours. Lil Gertie, my cat sure likes the idea that I play with her more at night than during the day but she does play with me during the day. Lil Gertie is jut more active at night than during the day. I love my cat, Lil Gertie, so much I don’t know what life would be like without her. I hope she lives a long life as she is only seven years old.

I do not have much more to say as I am getting tired and most likely need to get to bed so I can sleep during the day on what is suppose to be a beautiful Saturday. I might not be able to enjoy the beautiful weather but I am okay with that as I work an over night shift at a homeless shelter. I am grateful for my job and really need to go so I can get some sleep. Lets hope my insomnia doesn’t continue or I will be cranky bucket at work. I would like to thank you for the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things. Again, thank you so much for reading my blog. I hope everyone has a great Saturday and awesome weekend. You my readers a blessing to me and greatly appreciate each one of you. Peace Out, World!!!
