Tired. That's my constant state of being.
I wanted to go see Kingsman: The Golden Circle, so I decided to take my mom out for a nice lunch and a movie. I utterly enjoyed it, just as much as I did the first one. I was afraid I'd fall asleep in the theatre, as I worked this morning, and I do have work again tonight, but I didn't feel a bit tired during the film. It kept me throughly entratained the whole two and something hours that is its runtime. But now, now I am going to crash.
I was talking to my brother on Tuesday about getting my parents new flooring for the house. The puppy is completely trashing the carpet that's all downstairs, so I figured that new flooring for Christmas would be the perfect gift for them. I know it's not going to be cheap, which is why I talked to him about it so soon. I know I'm going to have to save up quite a bit, which means I'm going to have to cancel my Xbox One X order. I can always get that next year. Nothing good is going to be coming out for it soon anyway, so it's not all that important for me to pick it up at its launch. I'd rather do this for my parents. I know my mom has been talking about getting that tile that looks like wood, as opposed to actual wood or laminate. The tile would be nice, and easy to clan. And with the dog, I think it would work best. So, I have to go price it, get an estimate about installation and all that. I'll probably run the idea by my dad, since it wouldn't be that big a deal for him to be surprised like it would for my mom. So, we'll have to see.
Dinner with the family was fantastic. I expected it to only be me, my parents, and my brother and sister-in-law, but I got a lovely little surprise when Kevin and Liz showed up at the restaurant. They brought Lucas! So, I got to spend the night in great company and with the most adorable little boy who ever did exist. I love that kid. So freaking much. He's the brightest star in my sky at the moment. I couldn't be more in love with a child unless it were my own. But, as I don't have any, and that's not likely to change anytime soon, I get to dote and lay all my love on Lucas. It was a great night. Nights I don't get too often anymore, which made being with my family all the more special. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect evening.
sounds like you had fun with your family
Do you just comment on strangers journals stating the obvious? Like it's going to get you something. I wrote an entire entry about how great that night was, so yeah, it's pretty apparent that I had a fun night with my family.
I think cute Samoan guy is just going to always be Cute Samoan Guy. I keep missing him when he comes in, and when I do see him in passing, either I'm too busy to say more than a hello and smile, or he's too busy. And, I just don't have the nerve to say anything when he's surrounded by all the people in his department. I can't get out the simple words, "My name is Nicole." I just can't do it. So, Cute Samoan Guy it is. And maybe it's better this way. I don't plan on staying here for long, and I bet anything he's younger than me.
Destiny 2 is SOOOOOO FREAKING GOOD! oh my God. I played literally all night, power leveling because I work tonight through Monday, and I wanted to get as high as I could so at least one character would be raid ready next week. I'm already at the level cap of 20, and my light is in the 220s, so I don't have that much farther to go. 265 is when you hit the soft cap and need to do end-gamd action I ties such as the raid. So, I feel like my time gaming was productive. It helps that Destiny is easy to fall in to. I am absolutely loving what I've played so far. Though, a few of the level sections do feel like they were stolen right out of a Halo game. But yeah. I feel like I did what I could. Now it's time to get some sleep so I'm awake enough at work tonight.
There's this really cute Samoan guy at my work. He always makes sure to say hello to me when he comes in. I don't know what department he works in, because it sure isn't mine, and I only ever see him when he comes in between 1:30 and 2. But he came in as I was going on my first break today, and we kind of walked together up to the break room. He asked if he weirded me out or something, since I'm not exactly a social butterfly at work. I do try to muster at least a smile and a "good morning" with people. So, I always say hello when he says it to me. But, I guess that comes off as a little weird with most people. I laughed and told him that no, I didn't find him weird or anything. Just that I was a quiet person by nature. I wish we could have talked a little more, but he had to start his shift as we parted ways at the break room. Tomorrow, though, tomorrow I'm going to give him a smile and a hello and maybe ask him a little about himself, just get to talking. He seems really nice. And I could definitely use some friends there. I only really talk to Jessica and Joaquin, who are both in my department and I spend all my work day around.
I love my Galaxy S8 Plus, I really do, however, the one huge drawback I seem to find is that getting a screen protector that fits it properly is insanely difficult. Since buying my phone I've gone through four of them, and it's not really any fault of my own. It's just, with the curved edges of the screen, and my case, most tempered glass screen protectors tend to pop up around the edges, where the adhesive is. It's aggravating, to say the least. And, the ones that don't pop up don't fully cover the entirety of the screen, so there are some pretty big gaps along the edges where my case ends and the protector begins. Especially at the top. I feel that if I'm wasting $30-$50 on a protector, it should cover the whole screen. Is that asking for too much?
