Day 790: The 24th of September

Feels like a normal life again now.

Getting up in the morning, eating breakfast and experiencing the whole day is something that I haven’t been doing for a long time now.

Let’s keep up the roll.

Day 788: The 22nd of September

Well, I have managed to survive almost 30 hours without sleep now. Hopefully I sleep like a log tonight.

Honestly, I was flagging until the sun rose. Then I got my second wind when I made a hearty breakfast and chilled out downstairs for a while. Now it is evening once again and I feel ever-so-slightly tired.

I actually had considerably more trouble with boredom than I did trying to stay awake. It took a while to get into the swing of things and find something to enjoy while I waited for daybreak. Now I have things to do and it takes my mind off of the strain.

Day 786: The 20th of September

Got up relatively early to see off my parents today, then got washed and dressed to await a delivery.

Ended up waiting a good few hours for the delivery to eventually come in, at which point I could finally relax a little. Made a delicious Bolognese, which I have since devoured and then had a long bath.

Now I am going to lie down and read a book for a change. We shall see how it goes.

Day 784: The 18th of September

My time of having the house to myself is at an end for now.

Apparently I will be left again in the middle of this week though, which is interesting. Can’t say I mind too much, it is always fun to do things at my own pace.

Been playing XCOM 2 some more today, since it is highly addicting. Still save-scumming my way through it, to a greater or lesser extent. I have actually let some people die this time through, but other times I got a bit attached.

Day 783: The 17th of September

Well I just had an hour and a half long bath. It feels good to have the house to myself every now and then.

It has been a cold one today, so I wanted to at least feel warm for a little while. I shall be snuggling up in bed pretty soon for my nightly audio-drama before I sleep. Got two more weeks to chill out before uni restarts, so it is time to make as much of the time as I can. For me, that isn’t much, but still.

Still, it has been a fun few months. Got some serious character growth, I feel. Maybe it doesn’t seem like much for other people, but going out with friends on a regular basis and not worrying incessantly about it is something I couldn’t have done a few years back.

Let’s just hope that things just keep going up for me.

Day 782: The 16th of September

Today was pretty cool.

Got caught in the rain going to meet a friend up in town. We then hung out for most of the afternoon and evening, went up to ‘spoon’s and whatnot. It was pretty chill. I don’t imagine I will be doing much tomorrow though, meaning I will probably try to get up earlier and just do my own thing. We’ll see how that goes.

As it is, I am going to bed a little earlier tonight. It is still way past midnight, but at least it isn’t 5 AM. That is pushing things a little too far.
