countdown to moving day! 6 days!

Now thats we’re less than a week away from moving to a house, I am really starting to stress out. Especially because I wake up at like, 2pm every day and forget to get things done that I need done. We have yet to start packing but I have gone around and thrown away a lot of stuff that I don’t see myself needing.

Yesterday the Cape Girardeau Roller Girls put on a fund raiser for the Humane Society where they washed dogs at a local dog boutique for $20. Tiki is good and clean right now but she is shedding up a storm because it is just how pugs are.

I am just ready to get the next 7 days over with so that I can be moved and all of the pressure of moving will be gone.

I haven’t felt the motivation to work on my writing and poetry because of the stress.

I am thinking that now that my bar is open until 1 am every night, I might start making drink instructional videos at night when I don’t have guests.

John and I have been doing the couch to 5k thing. We are on week 2. We are about to go running right now I’m just waiting for my phone to charge a little. We go running at 2-4 am so that there is no one else and also so that it isn’t so hot.

I’ll probably be inspired to write again here soon, I just have a serious mental block from stress. Its hard for me to even finish my school work. Luckily one of my online classes has all of the answers for all of the tests online.

I thought I would have more time to write right now but John decided that he wanted to go running RIGHT NOW. So until next time

Wheew

Finals are finally done for the semester, but I have three classes this summer. Thankfully they are all online. I just got off of a shift at work, and I work tomorrow at 11am. Tomorrow is also graduation for the local university so we are going to be busy as eff. It is also the other bartender Jakes last night at Katy O’s, which is going to be sad. I plan on waking up early and going to go get him something nice. He and I have been the only bartenders at Katy O’s since September, so we have gotten to know each other well. he and his girlfriend are pretty much my favorite people. When I start my own bar, I hope that Jake is the co-owner with me. He mentioned that he still wanted to do it last night, but I know that people change. I am in the process of finding another bartender.

John made pizza for me when I got home, which was nice. I’m probably about to smoke a bowl then hit the hay. I’ll have more interesting things to say probably tomorrow, as of right now I am so bushed I don’t feel like writing.

Babadook

Just finished watching Babadook with John. Have I mentioned yet that I am a child when it comes to scary movies? I wanted to watch it because I read reviews, and it was on Netflix. I also know that Horror is Johns favorite genre. It was more of a psychological thriller but I still spent most of the movie with the blanket almost covering my face, with just enough room to peak out of. This is my prefered way of watching scary movies.

Babadook was a very, very good horror film. One of the best I’ve see, honestly. It had a great plot with some serious twists and turns that made me say “what the fuck?” out loud more than once. It is about a woman whose husband was killed on the day her son was born. The son is now six, and has behavioral issues that cause him to be taken out of school for a while. A mysterious childrens book called “The Babadook” appears when the boy asked his mother to read him a bedtime story. Sam is already afraid of monsters, and this becomes even more exagerated as it appears as if the Babadook is real. Sams mother goes crazy over the course of the film, and I was very afraid that she was going to kill her son by the end. I don’t want to give away the ending, but I greatly enjoyed it.

I have been spending most nights going to sleep reading the subreddit /r/nosleep, because I have been interested in creepy stories for a while now. I like the feeling of my heart racing and being able to imagine the fear in my head. I actually don’t like watching scary movies mainly because of the cheap thrills tactic of the jump-scare. The Babadook has very few jump-scares, which I appreciate. There was a lot of suspense, however.

Even scarier than a scary movie, I had to complete my resume today for a big-girl job. Not really, its really just for a class. I also had to complete a cover letter. This semester has been pretty rocky, thanks to that whole “uncle murdering my cousin” thing a few weeks back. I’ll probably make a whole post about that at a later date, I’m still sifting through my emotions on that one.

I work at 12pm tomorrow, I’m supposed to go in specifically to run a banquet dinner and then leave, hopefully nap for an hour (or drink a Red Bull) then go back to work at 3:30 for a fun-filled Tuesday night. ¬†Wednesday I am off but I have to do a big group project for a class in which we are creating a video exemplefying our major and presenting it to the Dean of the department in hopes that our video will be presented in the introductory freshman class at my university. Saturday night I am volunteering at the roller derby match here in town, after which I will probably get drunk. Sunday I will hopefully be able to relax a little, which I know isn’t possible because I have a bunch of assignments due next week. Finals are soon after that and then I guess I’m free until the fall.

Its crazy how fast this year has been going by, it is already May. We are going to be looking for a new place to live shortly, which is stressful. My face is probably going to break out so bad. So it goes.
