August 23, 2014 Daybook

 
FOR TODAY
 
Outside my window…
It looks like a lovely sunny day!
I am thinking…
I am very excited to have a functioning computer again! iPhones are lovely but just don’t function in the same way that a nice computer can. It’s a bit jury-rigged and kind of ghetto looking but it works just fine for me! In theory I am getting one for my birthday this year. I asked for a desktop but it seemed like a no-go. I tried at least.
I am thankful…
I have had a sudden upswing of energy the past few days. I think it is because I’m getting ready to go to school again. I have to go and be a people again.
In the kitchen…
A bunch of boxes. Part of the sudden energy boost was spent throwing a bunch of crap out, as was absolutely necessary. The living room is actually fit for people! Kind of, anyways. Certainly much better than before.
I am wearing…
Jim-jams!
I am creating…
In addition to bringing up this blog again, I’ve started a blog about books, and am considering a blog about self-destruction.
I am going…
I thought about going to the public market today, but… well I was waiting for the mister to wake up, and that took until noon, and I am still in my jammies and just not sure I am up to being a human being today.
I am wondering…
Can I go to bed yet?
I am reading…
Almost done with the second book in the Ranger’s Apprentice series.
I am hoping…
This damn headache and dry skin goes away. I somehow managed to carve my skin in all sorts of places unintentionally.
I am looking forward to…
Birthday this week. School.
I am learning…
Cooking, a little bit. I’ve made dinner every day this week. There’s a recipe I found for buffalo chicken lasagna that I might make sometime on a weekend.
Around the house…
Cat. Bear. Catboy. Stuffed animals.
I am pondering…
Why is this song on my iTunes?
Also tattoo design. I have one planned for this next month.
A favorite quote for today…
I’ll get my revenge on the world or at least 49 percent of the people in it!
One of my favorite things…
One of the boxes I unpacked had a shit-ton of tea. Score!
A few plans for the rest of the week:
School shopping. Need new clothes, for the love of Hestia. I’ve dropped 14 pant sizes this year. At some point a birthday dinner.
A peek into my day…

Impiety

I will fully confess now the lack of which I have been slacking in my duties regarding worship.

And in another reality I have been doing what I should be as Apollo and Hestia are my primary points of worship.

I quit my old job after one particularly cold day in which my employer demanded I very possibly die so that he can make, at most, $4 that day of business. This past winter was insanely brutal; I would like to cite a night in which it was -30° Fahrenheit, before the wind was factored in. Certainly there have been worse winters here in the past, but these predate my living here.

As my job was at a public market, you can imagine this winter was not very busy. On a busy weekend day, that would account for ~$200 dollars. This particular day in question was a Tuesday, objectively our slowest day, in which we might have, if lucky, had one sale, average sale being $4 dollars. $10 if really hungry.

I am not going to die for four bucks.

Fast forward, I am now working a part-time maid job. 🙂
Also playing den mother to the house I now live in, with the man I am currently in love with.

I am trying to get better at cooking and have prepared dinner for the boys every day this past week, and about half of the breakfasts (normally lunch is work time, so that is normally on them.)

I am hoping to have my altar set up again soon; my Hera statue looks alone on the kitchen chair.

I am all set to go to college again in roughly two weeks’ time. I will be starting to get the prerequisite classes for the nursing program down, and hopefully this time next year I will be working in a hospital, if nothing else as a transporter or anesthesia tech.

So when I am able to fully pray and worship again, I hope they are not angry. I trust the theoi know life occurs. If they want something as penance, they will of course receive. But I do not see them as that immediately vengeful as as much as possible I have not, as far as I know, committed some indelible heresy.

So here I am, attempting to reaffirm myself in my religion. It was very good to me in a time I needed it, and even when I did not.
