1 day until my week-long vacation from work
Really today is my last day before my vacay. I’m only working 2-3 hours of overtime tomorrow.
I don’t know where to begin. How about some TMI? My period only lasted for two freaking days. If that! OMG. Hallelujah. Birth control rocks. Yes, I gained weight, but I’m happier with a shorter period. It would be great if it just disappeared. I have hopes that will happen one day soon. Depo Provera didn’t work. In fact, it was a nightmare. But what I’m on now (Blisovi-Fe) works wonders. It also clears up acne. That’s not my top concern though. I just want my period to be gone because I hate it.
Work is impossible. I mean it. Yeah, I’m off next week which is kind of great. But kind of not because they might go over stuff to help us. “Us” being the people that just got out of training. I am calling into two work meetings next week. The meetings are only an hour each so no big deal. I don’t like that they are at 8AM, but I can rarely sleep in. I’m used to getting up at 4:50 AM. Sleeping in for me is 6 AM.
Anyway, I barely got anything done today. All I had were questions. I got a lot of answers which was helpful, but I didn’t get much actual work done. When I get back to work on August 6, I am expected to be productive. They will be watching what we do. Closely. I’m trying not to worry about it.
My staycation plan might be kind of messed up. It is supposed to rain every single day. Boo. Not a huge deal. As long as it isn’t heavy rain all day. I don’t mind going to the local park when it is just drizzling. In fact, it is really nice when it’s a little rainy because no one else is there. Speaking of the park, I went today after work (rare for a Friday). I barely saw anyone. It was very nice. My dog only went nuts when we saw the one dog. So embarrassing. Ick.
Back to my staycation plans:
Monday: doctor, manicure (!!), tarot readings, recording YouTube videos, mentor meeting
Tuesday: visit the river with my dog, tarot readings, YT videos, catch up on training material for my day job
Wednesday: NO WORK ALLOWED. NO tarot. NO day job. Catch up on reading, local park, working through Benebell Wen’s astrology course, sleep!
Thursday: YT videos (if not done), miscellaneous tarot stuff, local park
Friday: miscellaneous tarot stuff, astrology course,
Yep, I’m thinking about getting a manicure. I have NEVER gotten one before. I don’t wear makeup. I wear fingernail polish once a year. But for my YouTube videos, I will be holding up Tarot cards so I want my nails done. That is the only reason why I’m doing it. It will not be a normal thing. After this, I will paint my own nails. I just thought getting a manicure would be nice. What color will I get? I’m thinking purple or black. I’m going to try to get a gel polish manicure on my natural nails. The place I want to go to is near my house, and I have to call them tomorrow to find out whether an appointment is necessary. I hope not. I just want to go right after I’m done at the doctor.
My schedule is not set in stone. As you can see, I barely have much going on. I mostly want to focus on Tarot and leisure reading since I barely have time for that when I’m working my day job. And weather permitting, I would like to go to a park every day.
One more thing: I do consider Tarot work because it is. But I enjoy it. It is only considered “work” because it takes up a lot of time.
This week I…
Music of the week (my top 8 most listened to): Christina Aguilera, Sugarland, Demi Lovato, Ellie Goulding, Janelle Monae, Ariana Grande, Britney Spears, Paula Cole
TV of the week: Big Brother, The Bachelorette, The Bold Type
I take back what I said about The Bold Type last week. The show isn’t horrible. However, it does remind me that I’m definitely not a lesbian. That’s for sure. 😉 I’m asexual. 100%
Movie of the week: None
Podcasts of the week: True Crime Garage, Fresh Air, Online Marketing Made Easy, Generation Why
Books of the week: Now reading:
- Eloquent Rage: A Black Feminist Discovers Her Superpower by Brittney Cooper (Great book. Better than I expected. I think anyone who wants a better understanding of a black woman’s experience should read it. No, not all black people have the same experience, but hopefully, you know what I mean).
- I’ll Be Gone in the Dark: One Women’s Obsessive Search for Golden State Killer by Michelle McNamara
- Sister Outsider: Essays and Speeches by Audre Lorde
- Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear by Elizabeth Gilbert (I’m not the biggest Elizabeth Gilbert fan, but everyone has recommended this book, including my mentor. Can’t wait to dive in. Hope I’m not let down.)
Hope to get a ton of reading done this week. That’s what vacations are for!
Plans for the weekend: I’m working for a few hours on Saturday. I’m going grocery shopping on Sunday. I have tarot readings to do. Not much exciting stuff going on. I’m more excited about my weekdays than my weekend.
My overall goal is to make the most of the next week. I want to have extended dance parties and maybe sleep more, but I also want to get a lot of tarot stuff done. Now is the time.
Have a magnificent weekend! Thanks for reading. 🙂
