Over a month ago, I met up with a girl with the understanding that we would talk, cuddle, watch tv. That kind of thing. Nothing funny, nothing sexual. We met up one weekend in the beginning of April and another time the weekend after that. She spent the night the second time (again, nothing sexual). It was really nice to be able to enjoy someone’s company in that manner. The next weekend she had booked with friends and the weekend after that she was going to C2E2. She said she would be free the third weekend, after C2E2, but that did not materialize. She said she’d be able to meet up the next weekend, this past weekend. That also did not materialize. She actually put this most recent one off, citing projects and lack of funds (not like spending all day watching TV is expensive?), and suggested next Sunday, this upcoming Sunday, just a few days from now.
Anyway. During that conversation, I got a little annoyed. I had thought that she had put off both weekends, and so I.. showed my annoyance. Oops.
I was wrong. I reviewed our conversations and.. I was wrong about what I had thought. So I apologized, saying I had misunderstood our previous conversations.
I waited a few days and said “Yeah, Sunday should be good.”
It’s been several days since that.
In other news, I’ve just breached 13 months working at TSS. My fears of not doing a good enough job have subsided, slightly, and I increasingly feel like a valuable member of the company.
I really need to get back in to biking to work now that the weather is nice, but I am just too tired and lazy in the morning.. I am not getting good sleep, nor am I getting to sleep on time. Small doses (less than 1mg or so) of melatonin are helping on a nightly basis, but it’s still not ideal.
Aubrey is moving back in come mid July or so. She’ll be here for a week starting around Memorial Day and then she’s off to India for a month and a half of job training. After that, roommate time! The lowered financial burden will be welcome, but not nearly as welcome as having her around. Last time she lived here, for about a month and a half starting in mid-July last summer, it was awesome. She’s a great person to live with, probably one of the best roommates I’ve had. I enjoy her company immensely.
Duster, at least, seems to have calmed down on the whole being separated and lonely thing. It only took nearly two years… He still exhibits some behavior he didn’t used to, but they’re endearing and I’ll give him that leeway since he doesn’t have Pinto around.
Nicole and I did a pretty awesome analysis of a dream I had a week or so ago. Or at least, I think it was a week. May have just been Sunday night.. My sense of time is abysmal. Anyway, it made me realize a few things. It was neat. I had one weird-ass dream since then that involved my entire nuclear family, us owning a pizza place, and then us living out Monster Hunter. Nicole couldn’t analyze that one at all.
A few days ago:
Just a minor update to attempt to get back in this habit again.
I was looking in to moderator bots for the subreddit, and I heard great things about AutoModerator. I found the github, but there was no documentation. The author runs instances for many subreddits, and I do not like this idea. I do not want someone uninvolved with our subreddit having mod access to our sub. So I attempted to set the bot up without documentation. I have since found a newer, easier bot to use, but the below is my attempt at figuring it out:
So I’m trying this thing that was recommended to me. Basically I’m supposed to list three things I’m grateful for every night.
So here goes
There’s a bunch of others that come to mind, but if I blow them all tonight then this won’t last very long.
And tonight is kind of a misnomer. This post has been sitting as a draft for a couple weeks now.
That pretty girl on the train home sat next to me today. I didn’t say “hi.” Ugh.
Two pictures today.
