The "How was your Day" thread

Recommended Posts

I'm just happy it's Saturday. I've been a bit stressed about work, there is so much to do. We got a new employee also, and unfortunately I don't know if me and her get a long. I don't usually feel this way but I feel annoyed about her personality. I don't know her very well, yet, so I won't give a full judgement, but I have pretty good radar for these things...

 

I actually applied for a new job anyways. The current workplace is too far and the new job is pretty much what I really want to do. I hope I get to the interview. 

 

Also I'm applying for this education that I've been planning for a while now. I only have 12 days to work with the assignment that is the only thing needed to be done to apply. It's quite comprehensive but luckily I started similar assignment before but that time I didn't apply (because of the corona and we were moving at the time). 

 

So a lot of things on my plate currently. 😃

My singing partner came over for our first rehearsal today. We're doing the duet version of "Beauty and the Beast (Tale as Old as Time)." For context, I never sang loudly in our choral group last year, because I'm just hardwired to be very shy, and mortified of singing by myself. I'm a little more confident now than I was a year ago. I'm only just starting to read music, so I played my notes out on my keyboard to learn them. He gets to open with the first line, and I follow with the second. So we get to my first measure, and I sing.

Like he couldn't believe what he was hearing. Meanwhile, I thought I was possessed by the ghost of Emmy Destinn. I never realized how good I had gotten by myself, to the point that it actually makes sense I'm taking an intermediate class. Minus the music illiteracy, that's where I am. Ever since I took the plunge this semester and began singing on my own, everyone has said that my voice is beautiful. Enough people (professional singers and MAs in music) have said it that I know they're not just saying it. It's gratifying. It's great when a song you like actually works with your voice. Just gotta invoke the power of Celine and I'll be good to go.

That's awesome, @Sesshomaru! What a wonderful feeling.

 

My day has been... okay, so far. The good news is I finally figured out a better way to take my new medication... Apparently this specific med in this specific dose only comes in 'orally disintegrating tablets' ie you have to hold it on your tongue until it dissolves. It's gross and feels really really icky and tastes weird and I hate it. Oh, and it does *not* dissolve in 'less than 30 seconds' as the information-packet says. My dr said to just swallow it normally if I can't stand the dissolving, but because it's not *meant* to be swallowed it doesn't go down easily at all. But this morning my mom had a suggestion, and it actually worked: Putting a few drops of my favorite breath mint on my tongue before placing the tablet, it actually helps it dissolve faster and masks the weird feeling/taste. Yay!

 

Other than that, I'm procrastinating on hunting down a book that I think is under a huge pile of clothes/junk in my room. A pile of not-easy-to-move junk. But I need to double-check something in the book for a dragon naming scheme I thought of.

I decided to try my hand at 3D modeling, in hopes of making a model for 3D printing. I don't intend on becoming a professional 3D modeler or designer though, I'm just doing it for fun. I already know the basics of modeling. However, I'm just not very good at it yet. My goal is to make something small and simple. I don't have my own printer, but the library near me has 3D printers available to use. I haven't printed anything there before, and the idea of asking for help is more daunting than actually making the 3D model. 😬

Had a relatively good day. Got a few CD's today. 2 from Moonspell one was a replacement for the one I somehow lost, the other new and awesome. And the third was from Theatre of Tragedy, amazing as well. Plus the 2 from Lacuna Coil I got a few weeks ago that I can't get enough of. I can't wait to get some more new music. Still more Lacuna Coil CD's I want, more Moonspell, Samael, and maybe some Rotting Christ as well. After that I'll have to see what else I want to get. 😻 

As well, I have a BPAL addiction I want to indulge.

So uhhhhhh, I have a weird little thing on my mind today...When did we collectively decide that dragon eggs are inexplicably scaly? It's not something I'd do a CinamaSins *DING* over because that's stupid, but I'm just kind of wondering in a casual way.

 

In most adoptable games eggs are expected to look like the adults in some way so that you're not just collecting boring ole realistic eggs so that's excusable for them but why is it so common in other forms of dragon media? That'd be like bird eggs being covered in feathers! I feel like it has to be a reference to something, either folklore or early media, but what? What enigmatic madlad decided that skin coverings belong on eggshells, and why are we continuously listening to them?

My account is almost dead but I have returned!

Nothing interesting happening today. Other than I just randomly changed my username for no reason and probably making my account Daft Punk themed.

Oh, wonderful. Had to partner up in improv with the kid I can't stand (who thinks he's good but is actually just a smart mouth), hardly got any work done in my real job, and the cherry on the cake was walking home, right past my mentally ill druggie neighbors who were whispering things about me under their breath. The really funny thing is that the last tenant in their house was their crazy great-grandma who verbally abused me when I was a kid. You know those people with zero regard for the lives of others, that think their **** doesn't stink, and can't understand that they're the problem? That would be the lovely family next door.

 

At least tomorrow is my singing lesson.

Well, my day has been just peachy! </sarcasm>

 

Little background, my husband is diabetic, with several associated medical issues including anemia and kidney disease. On Tuesday, he had a biopsy done on his kidney trying to see how bad the damage is, etc., to see if he's in a place where meds can still help or if it's time to think dialysis and get on the transplant list. Wednesday he seemed fine, a little sore, a little tired, but nothing unexpected following an invasive procedure. Yesterday, he woke up sick to his stomach (something else which happens regularly thanks to the diabetes) only he didn't just get sick and immediately feel better like usual. Today he woke up feeling worse and asked me to take him to the hospital.

 

He's got pneumonia, plus his red blood count dropped significantly which means he's got a double whammy going on when it comes to oxygenation because not only is he dealing with whatever the pneumonia's doing to his lungs, the anemia has gotten bad enough that his blood just plain can't carry enough oxygen to keep him going properly.

 

And because there's respiratory symptoms happening, they're testing him for Covid - as far as we know he's had no exposure, but I understand they have to check - and that means I can't even visit him in the hospital for at least a couple of days, until his test comes back and is negative.

So sorry this is happening. Hope he doesn't have covid and hope they are able to treat him and it's not too serious. Keep us informed and Let us know how it goes.

Catstaff, I hope your husband doesn't have COVID.  Can they do a blood transfusion?

 

My day has been lousy.  I have chronic fatigue syndrome and I've been extra tired today.  I get so sick of that.

Catstaff.. that's really horrible, I'm sorry to hear that. I genuinely wish the best for your husband.

And Classycal, I hope you feel better soon :(

 

 

 

My day has been alright, nothing too out of the ordinary. I just draw pictures like usual.

Thank you for the good wishes, folks!

 

I just spoke with my husband; he's had a transfusion and is on oxygen and feeling slightly better. The Covid test came back negative so he thinks they'll let me in to see him tomorrow. Still waiting on a whole slew of other test results and still no idea when he'll be released. But at least that's one thing gone right.
