He keeps sending me pictures of the empty parks, it's almost like torture for me at this point. Though, he did get to go on Rise of the Resistance, something he hadn't done before. That seems odd to me, because I would assume they would have done ride through for Cast Members. But, he finally got to ride it without the problems that plagued me when I rode it in January of last year.
Anyway... The one thing to make up for the fact that I'm not at Disneyland right now, is that I got two presents (from myself) in the mail today. That made me happy.
Welp, my Kylo has a fun day ahead of him as he attends one of the soft reopenings of Disneyland for Cast Members. I told him to ride Rise of the Resistance and the Haunted Mansion once for me, as they are my favorite rides out of both parks. I'm still jealous. What I would give to be able to go back. But, he said he'll take lots of pictures for me, and record some videos throughout the day. I just really need to get a job with Disney at some point.
Disneyland did a little livestream tonight, just a little something to welcome back the magic for the official reopening on Friday. They lit up Sleeping Beauty's castle. It's been dark for a year, so it was pretty awesome to see it lit up again. I'm still insanely jealous that my Kylo gets to go to the soft reopening for the cast members on Wednesday. But, it did make me want to look into going on my birthday. Unfortunately the reservation system only has tickets available until the end of June, so it looks like I'll have to look into it next month, or even June, to see if I can get a ticket. I know they're only allowing California residents to buy tickets for the foreseeable future, which will be nice. But even so, people get around such things. I just know I need to go back and I need to go back soon, haha. It won't be the same, I know that a lot of things are still going to be closed in the parks, and parades/firework shows are cancelled for now because of the way people pack in to watch those, so it'll be a different Disneyland for quite some time. But, we're one step closer to getting back to normal here.
Well, I suppose taking the first shot as badly as I did was a bit of a blessing in disguise. Outside of being tired and my arm being a little swollen where I got the shot, I haven't had any bad side effects. It's nice.
I got the second Covid vaccine shot today. And while I'm hoping this doesn't hit me as hard as the first one did, I don't have high hopes. I've already got a headache and can't move my left arm without pain. So... Yeah. It'll be another two weeks before I am technically immune. But, at least I got my part done. I'm just that much closer to being able to go out and do things again without worry.
Say what you will about not trusting the vaccines, that's cool. You do what you feel is right. However, given my immune system and how easily I tend to get and stay sick, I feel this is the best course for me. I'd love to see everyone get the shot(s), but I understand the reservations. I just know I needed to do this for me and those close to me.
Brave ..I hope you don't have bad symptoms.
No one could pay me to take them
You should be fine. Most people who have had or have been exposed to the virus get sick on the 1st dose. Those that haven't had it get sick on the second, I was in bed all day for a day after I had gotten mine with body aches and pains. treated it like I had the flu and was better the following day.
I'm so envious. My Kylo was telling me about how he gets to go to the cast preview next Wednesday for the reopening of Disneyland happening next Friday. So jealous! As it stands, with things the way they are and their new reservation system, I doubt I'll be able to go to the park until the autumn at the earliest. It makes me sad. The park has been closed for over a year now, and with Annual Passes being no longer being a thing, I don't know if I can even justify the expense of a day trip to the parks. One ticket, just to visit Disneyland, is around $150, and if you want to go to both parks, it's at least $200, plus parking, plus anything you may buy while in the park(s). With my pass, parking was free, entrance to both parks was free, I just paid for anything I bought while spending the day inside those gates. I really hope they bring something comparable to the table in lieu of the APs. Because I would love to spend whole days there again, from open to close. And, I'm sure I could when cast members are allowed to bring guests in for free again, but that likely won't be a thing for a long while, so my Kylo can't help me on that front. It sucks. But, here's to things returning to some kind of normal again.
I'm getting my second dose of the vaccine on Sunday, so I'll be fully vaccinated two weeks after that. I'll be less hesitant to go out and do things again.
Apparently I missed a call from my doctor regarding those inconclusive test results last week. So, I called her back and left a message. I likely won't hear from her until Monday. Which means plenty of time to stress and be anxious. Getting a call regarding test results is never a great sign.
Nah gurl don't stress about something you can't control. Enjoy your weekend now, then Monday comes, deal with it then. Worrying about "what ifs" or "maybes" leads to alot of unnecessaries. You don't need to DO that to yourself. Trust me, I get scolded all the time for doing just that LOL!
I will never understand why any one person needs 10+ profiles on this site.
Maybe there isn't anyone to talk to anymore. Insta groupies lol
To be a internet gangsta and think they have power i think....
Me neither. I have a handful of profiles that are mostly accounts that were given to me and I don’t get rid of them because of the sentimental value. But I don’t have time to be logging into them. The numbers get wilder than that though. Like more than a couple dozen for some people. And it’s just absolutely insane. The only good thing about it is they are putting money into the site. And then we pay for it in drama.
Points to above... What she said! I have a few myself but they are for purposes all my own and I don't have time to log into them all the time myself. It is great the money goes into the site, but the drama and the insanity.. GEEZE!
Oh man, 15 years here as of the 8th. Damn... Nearly half my life spent with me being a member here. I don't know how to feel about that these days.
Since California is really starting to open up again, and since I'll be fully vaccinated by the end of this month, I've really been looking into tattoo artists in my area. I'm pretty dead set on getting my forearm pieces, my Galactic Empire Cog and Vader's lightsaber on my left arm, and the First Order sigil with Kylo's lightsaber on my right. Nothing extremely fancy, colorless for the most part save for the red blades. I've been stashing away a couple bucks with each paycheck, and with my latest stimulus check, I have more than enough to cover both pieces. It's just finding the right artist who can do good work, I do want the lightsabers to be movie accurate, as I know too many people these days who would know better. I'm hoping I can get both pieces done within the next few months.
I'm trying to declutter my life a bit, get rid of things I no longer use. One major thing I'm looking to sell is my Switch.. It's in pristine condition, so I could probably get a few hundred for it. I haven't actually touched it since the beginning of November, and even though I constantly say I'm going to get back into playing on it, I never do. Handheld just isn't appealing to me, and yeah, I could dock it and have it play on my TV, but that isn't appealing either. Mostly because my Kylo doesn't have one and I don't like playing on my own these days. I've also got a few pairs of Demonia shoes that I'm going to throw up for sale, two pairs I have never actually worn. They've just been sitting in their boxes in my closet, collecting dust.
I've been rearranging my bedroom these last few weeks, going though everything, figuring out what's worth keeping and what I can get rid of. I found the Hedwig plushie and the Harry Potter house bookmarks Matthew gave me for Christmas a few years ago... The stuffed Gir he gave me years and years ago... Made me cry. But, all things I should probably get rid of at this point.
Well, that was something new for my Kylo and I. We very rarely actually talk on the phone, it's usually always via text or we talk for hours and hours in Xbox parties. Phone calls have never really factored into things. But tonight/this morning... It was just so wonderful. He is so good at making me smile. So good at making me feel like I'm the only person in the world who matters to him.
