Weekly Obsession, October 14, 2014

Not gonna lie, pretty proud of myself for picking up blogging again.

Anyway, it's 11:28am and I'm sitting in my bed with a candle lit typing this to you.  My weekly obsession enables me to do that: the night shift.  For my new job, new people always have to start of with the night shift.  I am actually the worst morning person you'll ever meet, because mornings are the worst.  I work from 4pm-1am most of the week (Sunday I work from 1-10pm) and hit the jackpot with having Friday and Saturday off.  With this schedule I don't wake up until 11am, 12 at the latest, hang around the house by catching up on my shows or go for a walk or go to the grocery store or run some other errands, then get ready and head to work after a great (or not) breakfast.  When I get home, between 1:30 and 2am; I still got some fight left in me so I do something else.  Last night I got home from work and swept and mopped the living room and kitchen, then showered, then watched some Youtube videos.  At 3am, I decided to call it a night and slept soundly.

I've been loving this schedule, the only part is I can't spend time with people after work because everyone's already asleep by the time I get off.  But I still get to spend time with friends on Fridays and Saturdays, and I'd even be willing to grab some coffee during the day on days I work.

Anyway, I'm loving the night shift and wake up feeling grateful that I don't have to wake up and be pried from my comfort so early in the morning and then get thrust into rush hour traffic BOTH WAYS.  Have a great rest of your day, mine has just begun.

Weekly Obsession, October 11, 2014

Whoa!  It has been quite a while, huh?  My last weekly obsession was at the end of August and was about my new job.  Quick update on that job, I'm still doing well and still like(ish) it.  This week's obsession is loooonnnnngggggg overdue, but whatever.

My house!  A few weeks ago I moved into a new place in a different part of town with a new roommate.  My former roommate of just a handful of months made a big move to Colorado, so I had to find a new place and new roomie.

My new digs are great!  It's another duplex with a great kitchen, gorgeous floors, plenty of natural light, and it's in a fantastically quiet-tree filled-neighborhood!

For the most part we're pretty settled into our home, but there have been a few hiccups and some kinks that still need to be ironed out.  Every time I walk into my home or just move from one room to another, I just let out a little sigh because it feels so much like home to me and I am so grateful to be living here.  I basically love this place so much that I always want people to be here. I want it to be a great gathering spot where people play games, eat, and have a good time!
