  1. LB log - 2017 Week 49

    I was directly asked if I wanted to work an extra day this week. Usually they don't bother to do so. It caught me off guard, and I quickly muttered out a "not particularly" in response. It wasn't pressed, but his expression in response was enough to show disappointment. I honestly shouldn't feel as bad about it as I did, and it took a while for me to reconcile with it. I already do give up an average 65 hours of my week for them. That really should be enough.

    I built another ...

    Shopping is basically wrapped up. We're deciding that it's time for her PC to be upgraded, so everything has been slowly rolling in thanks to sales and the like. I'll be looking forward to building a PC again. It's been a while. I did get something for both of them, and it's definitely not something similar to things I've given before and something they'll do together. I hope they like it.

    In anticipation of future time constraints with the holidays coming, a new IIDX coming, and ...

    Now I'm at the point where I consider it necessary to avoid looking at my statistic totals on Instagram, because it actually bothers me to see my follow count fluctuate and decrease from time to time. It shouldn't affect me at all, seeing as how I'm not making posts for the sake of earning popularity and approval of others, such as it is that the entire ultimate purpose of something like Instagram is pretty much purely for the sake of approval of others. Regardless, I already have 2000 pictures ...

  4. LB log - 2017 Week 46

    I painted myself in a corner for writing this week's entry. With little else planned out, I ended up doing basically nothing on my days off instead. Great. Maybe next week I'll actually get back to getting things done. Oh, and avoiding the consumption of coffee on the work days is proving to be the correct choice. Looks like I'll be on 5 Hour Drinks for a while to come.

    Sorry robots, that's all I got for now.

    Songs were pretty lackluster this time. Arcade session was ...

    Happy Armistice Day. I'm pretty sure I had written those exact words as a header for a previous observation.

    What's bugging me this week is my stamina on the job. On the old original long route from so many months ago, I had to undertake specific times of the night and day to ingest certain foods or drinks, as well as shift between radio stations and having windows opened or closed, on top of other things like even pulling over to stop and walk around or just scream at the top of ...

    How about you don't do that anymore, huh? It's not worth it. You were ready to kill it all off just a few days ago, remember? How about you remember that and let it go.

    It was nice to be able to hand out candy again this year. I should have known to stay out just a bit longer until the sun was fully down, but at least I was out there for most of it.

    Going to the arcade that day proved to be a somewhat poor decision yet again. At lesat I've avoided it on other such occasions. ...

    Two days of home song sessions lost due to the visit. For whatever reason, my body decided that it didn't want to sleep on Saturday and be relentlessly itchy until I decided to lay on the floor and directly in front of the box fan. Somehow I managed to get enough sleep to make it through the day with only feeling slightly exhausted and sluggish. Despite limited exposure he still did his best to do things for no other purpose than to aggravate me. I left him alone before and after. I didn't try to ...

    Guess who's back.

    This week's haul. $240 to have the car towed from the arcade to the shop, after it wouldn't start, even with a jump. $120 for a new car battery. This sequence of events put a large damper on the time off for the week. Look forward to next week's haul when I get the final amount on some dentistry work which a family member is scheduled to receive. I also obtained two arcade Tsum straps, because I felt like I could afford wasting that kind of money on something so ...

  9. LB log - 2017 Week 41

    At least this time I've remembered to do the brunt of this work now rather than try to squeeze it in later.

    Her car has returned. They repaired it for less than they had originally estimated, and in the process of doing so they had the car thoroughly cleaned out in preparation for its intended sale. The offer was made for me to pay the repair and retain ownership, and I accepted the offer. It seems like it will be some time before I find a good deal on a car.

    After ...

    Any old time would do.

    It was a long day today and I've had more nagging pains lately, yesterday in the testicles and today in the lower back. Some not-aspirin definitely helped today.

    This week's haul: $900 in car repairs for the lone remaining vehicle in our possession. I don't know why the issue at hand wasn't noticed on the last time I had brought it in, particularly since the last repair was for a drive shaft. Oh well. It does feel better to drive now, at least ...

    No noose is good news. That is unless you're looking for me to write something interesting here. Joke's on you.

    Oh yeah. Apparently the previous entry Week 37 got marked as private somehow. I don't understand why and I think I'd have to fully delete and repost the entry to change it, so I won't, because who cares.

    I've already cut back on my sweeps, but I think I need to go further now. I've had my fun. Today was just another coincidence, and soon they will not be ignored. ...

  12. LB log - 2017 Week 38

    There are many reasons for which I really do wish I would have stayed away and on my own path once I left. Already at this point I've grown to truly appreciate the good health that I have and the free time that I have. Playing Dragon Quest 11 right now is making me realize that unless other things in my life drastically change, I'll never have time for this kind of game ever again in my life. I just have too many other things which I really need to get done to justify the hours that I'm putting ...

    She started school.

    I'm expecting to see an additional $195 later today. I hope it's there. It's bad enough that my materials were rifled through on my days off. I can assume it was to look for the cards which I did accidentally keep, but it's still a little strange for that to have happened and then the shank flathead to be gone.

    An extra day off came and went and I don't have much in the way of anything to show for it other than having more time logged in Dragon Quest ...

    North Korea firing a missile into Japan's air space is an act of war, isn't it? Shouldn't there have been some kind of massive global reaction to this event? I'm just baffled as to how this transpired and the resultant reactions and responses have basically been no different than any other time before.

    Well, in other news of less import.

    I was set to meet a person to purchase a car, but on the morning of the meeting I called it off. The offer was for a car with 160000 ...

    Note to self. Next time you suspect of some kind of traffic incident like that, continue north to the next major intersection and go from there. I did not need to spend 50 minutes at that intersection today.

    With no other obligations pending on the days off, I indulged in playing a video game for a fair amount of time in the previous break. I have 11 hours logged on Dragon Quest 11, and that's with minimal downtime of me walking away to tend to something while letting it idle. I've ...
