this speaks to me on a personal level

So no I didn’t ride my exercise bike again. I just cant get home at 8 and jump right on I’m just to beat. Next week when I’m back to short shifts I’ll get back on but I just cant handle it right now. Even if it would probably make me feel better.

I woke up before my alarm today but still stayed in bed for a bit. I wasn’t in any real hurry so I just took my time. I ended up trying to make pancakes for lunch while I made my breakfast and that was a mistake. All I ended up doing was burning half the pancakes and rushing to eat. That was not fun for me. But I got it together and had some time to bullshit around before I had to leave.

And I didn’t even end up eating the pancakes at lunch and bought pizza instead. Whatever.

Work today was long and busy. I ended up meeting one of the franklin laurites, a nice Japanese man, and helping him get to where he needed to be. He didn’t speak English super well but we figured it out, very nice guy, as were the two other men accompanying him.  

My schedule sort of sucked today though so it wasn’t the best day, but I tried to be in good spirits. After I had lunch I sat outside for a little and enjoyed how beautiful it was. I read my book and felt good about stuff. My feet were hurting my pretty badly though so when I was up in Pompeii I took my shoes off whenever I could just to stretch. The floors suck so bad in the museum.

I ended up scaring the hell out of a lady when I snuck back into the theater to end the show in Pompeii. I felt really bad, just like when I scare my mom walking behind her if shes using the sink or something. The woman took it in good spirits though and forgave me.

Pete let me leave 10 minutes early so I would have to rush but I ended up not even needing that much time. I made my train no problem and my legs didn’t even hurt from speed walking. Just a calm walk over.

I had the cute conductor today and we talked about the book I was reading. Its hard to explain fanfiction to people so I just said it was a book based on the supernatural tv shows. He said he doesn’t even have time to read his own name anymore. And laughed and walked away. Still haven’t figured out his name, and it would have been the perfect time to ask but he walked away to quickly.

Someday.

I got home at 8 and planned to get on my bike but I ended up eating dinner with my parents and watching tv for a while. And now I’m going to get ready for bed. Interning tomorrow and the moore sr show preview! I am very excited to see my friends and a bit nervous to see Kate. I am very excited to see her work because she is so talented but we haven’t spoken since the fall. It will be good to see Kelly and Becca though.

But now reading and sleep. Goodnight all. 

In some ways, the term “pansexual” came out of biphobia and a need to stipulate that one was not transphobic. If you take the binary view of “bisexual,” then a sexuality specific to an attraction to men and women could be seen as being noninclusive of transgender men and women. On the other hand, transgender men and women want to (and should) be seen as simply men and women, meaning that they would/should be included in that very binary; not including them tends to be much more phobic and noninclusive.

Then there is the thought that the binary view of bisexuality can be seen as phobic of anyone who identifies as genderqueer, or somewhere along the gender and sexuality spectrum, not identifying as male or female, man or woman. But, as I mentioned before, the true definition of “bisexual” is being attracted to those who are the same as me and those who are different from me, encompassing all genders and identities. The often-repeated argument that “bi means two” ignores a simple fact: “Same” and “different” are, indeed, two groups.

Im just going to wear my long black dress again tomorrow. I dont even care. 

Alright I’m just about to get in bed. Today was a long day but not in a bad way.

I woke up at 7 and felt good. I made lunch and breakfast and hung around until I had to leave at 815.Before I left though I got a big surprise seeing a girl I went to moore with on my dash. It was nice to see her face but super surprising because it was reblog from someone on the other side of the world and it had a half million notes. But she’s beautiful and talented so I’m not really that surprised.

I got downtown and was feeling good. There was a little breeze out but it was nice enough for no jacket. I didn’t want to go inside and work but it was alright. I actually had a really good schedule today and got to hang out with my friends a bunch. I did get annoyed with my manager and snapped a little at her, but I did it with a smile so I’m hoping she didn’t notice that I was annoyed.

At lunch she gave me the schedule for the next 2 weeks and I was pretty pissed because she scheduled me for Sunday, even though I asked off literally in march. Not cool. But after some asking around, Kyle agreed to work for me so I can go on my trip! I’m very excited.

While in Pompeii this cute girl told me that she really liked my bangs and I stumbled over my words a bit but we chatted for a few minutes. She was very sweet.

I ended up spending a lot of today talking to this nice guy Sheppard at work. We talked about some stuff while we were both at imax/p1q (respectively), and then we talked for 2 hours while in Pompeii together. it was actually the highlight of my day. Its not that I didn’t like him, he does some things that annoy me,  but I always thought he was a good person. But we talked for 2 solid hours and it was awesome. We complained about work, and past jobs, and families, and I taught him art history things! that was the best part. He let me get excited about the art and the explanations and was excited with me. I showed him my portfolio on my tablet and he was so excited to see my things and hear about them and it just felt really good. Its nice to make a new friend. He also listened to my really bad jokes even if they were terrible. It made the day go by really fast.

Steve, the new guy, came and got us a few minutes early. But I still felt like I was going to miss my train. I put on fast music and speed walked over and just made it with a few minutes to spare. I got home not long ago and made some quesadillas for mom and me and now I’m getting ready to go to bed. I don’t have to be in tomorrow until 11 so I can wake up and have a nice breakfast or whatever. I’m working late again but I am promising myself I’m going to do the stationary bike when I get home.

I feel really good tonight. Like bone tired but in a good way. I hope the good mood doesn’t leave me.

how can u say u are not pretty when u are a cluster of stardust, a walking explosion of nebulas like there are constellations that knot your arteries together, you’re beyond pretty, more like a spectacular sight for all of us

I don’t know if its allergies or stress or what but my head is killing me.  And I just want to curl up and sleep. But it was a good day.

Happy Easter to all of my followers who celebrate it. I had to work 9-5 today, but they let me leave an hour early which was very nice. I woke up before 6 and wore one of my new dresses. I figured even though I’m not going to church or spending time with my family I could still dress up. Someone told me I looked like a painting today so that was nice to hear.

In the morning meeting today Mickey asked if his phone had bothered me. At first I didn’t recognize he was talking to me but then it hit me. On Thursday when I sat at his desk he had voicemails and the light was blinking red so I covered all the flashing lights with sticky notes. Then I forgot to take them off. He said he got a good laugh out of it. Blinking lights have been making me very dizzy lately so I do not like them. It was pretty funny though.

My schedule today was actually really silly and annoying but I had a good time talking to coworkers. Venting and chatting and discussing. It wasn’t so busy to be uncomfortable but it was a little more then a regular day. But not in a bad way.

I was hanging out at the café for a little while and noticed they had tiny boxes of mike and ikes for 25 cents and that couldn’t be right because their candy is $2. So I brought it to the cashier’s attention, in a joking manor. But then she called the manager over and we figured out that the company had sent the wrong thing and they had to pull them. But because I noticed the manager gave me a box. So they were my good deed candies. And then someone gave me a few skittles. So I got some Easter candy after all.

One of the most annoying parts of my day though was people telling me they were sorry I had to work on Easter and I just kept thinking “then why the fuck are you here?” because seriously? If people weren’t in the museum we could all go home, but you’re here idiot. It did peter out by the end of the day so Mario sent me home at 4.

After chatting with Mickey, where I found out 4 of the 6 brains I packaged leaked all over (he thinks that the packages were just broken and it wasn’t my fault. Still feel bad about it.) I left and caught the 430 train. I was on a new train and they have tv screens that play ads, and all of the screens were flashing green and it was giving me a major head ache so I tried not to look.

I got home and ate some left over Easter food and cake and then pizza. And Ive been hanging out and enjoying myself. But I’m very tired and looking forward to sleep. Work until 7 tomorrow but I don’t have to be in until 10 so there’s that. I hope you all had a good day. Goodnight.

I had an awesome day off. And I mean going up against my awful day off last week it was very exciting for me. I slept fairly good but still woke up pretty sore. But I got up at 930 and things were great. I cleaned my fish tank and attempted to clean the bathroom but ran out of cleaning spray so its only like half done. But still: progress!

I had a nice breakfast and watched some tv. I felt really good about things. And I was going to get things done today. I did the next layer of paint on my bike, which I’m very happy with right now, and I pulled my skate board out. I’m trying to regain my center of gravity before I attempt to ride it to the train when we move. I miss riding even if I was never into tricks or anything.  Theres something really nice about just riding though and I miss doing it. I left the house after that to go to the art store.

I looked for copper wire but didn’t have much luck. I couldn’t barely find 50 feet of the stuff. So I ended up with steel and I guess I will paint it? its also not as soft as I would like but it should be strong when its done. I didn’t get a lot of that project done today but its roughed out and I can work on it when I have time. I also picked up some new resin because my old stuff turned brown? I’m still trying to get the old stuff to cure but its not supposed to be brown.

When I got home I collected stuff from the basement to work on and spent a good few hours doing things. I finished 2 more book tree pieces and attempted casting some things in the old resin. I started the wire tree and just some other little things.

After chilling for a while I decided to go out again. I went to the thrift store to try to find more long black dresses or skirts. I didn’t find much at first because for some reason they keep the dresses at impact in 3 different places. Which is stupid. But I found some cool things and silly things to try on. I liked the cherry dress but it made me look like a fire plug. On the other hand the black dress makes me feel amazing. Like a goddess. I also got a sweater dress, a sunflower dress (that I’m probably going to wear tomorrow), a cable knit sweater, and a shirt. I was feeling pretty good after that purchase.

I got home and talked to my dad and made a late lunch. I hung out in bed for a while and then changed all my bedding since its not so cool anymore. Don’t need the extra fuzzy bedding.  I didn’t do much besides putting things away. I was thinking about packing today but I just cant justify it for myself yet. I know I should but I don’t feel like were moving, you know? Like dad says its going to be like end of may or june or july. So like that doesn’t give me any feeling of urgency. But whatever its fine, itll get done.

I had some dinner and helped mom pick some dresses. And I watched the sunset. It was so beautiful tonight. Now though I’m ready to start getting ready to sleep. I had a really good long day off. Even though I would love some more time off I feel really good. Even if allergens are attempting to murder me.

Work all day tomorrow. And aw my dad just handed me an Easter card. Thank you mom and dad.  Sleep well everyone.

We only had 3 hard boiled eggs so I just painted the one. But Im very proud of my cute little egg.

Also Im having a lot of sad feeling about Toby from the office.

Im so mad right now. I spent all day reading a relitivly good fanficion with good direction, and while it was sometimes underwhelming I was enjoying it. But jesus it had the worse ending. Just completely horrible. It was such a joke. They had one of the main character’s dad attack him and then the other BEATS THE DAD TO DEATH WITH A SNOW GLOBE. And then they burn the body in the woods instead of going to the police and then end of story?!! Are you serious!
