Day 741: The 6th of August

That party went great.

Honestly, it has been a long time since I have been around so many people who are all just really chill and nice. Corwin is a lucky boy to have such a wide group of people come to hang out. Helps that he is adorable.

The thing went off without a hitch though, which is excellent. Corwin was happy for the majority of the time and I got to see a lot of lovely people. The good thing about having a nephew is that he will gloss over any lulls in conversation, making life a great deal easier for me.

So yeah, party on!

Day 739: The 4th of August

Today was the quiet day of recovery after yesterday’s night out.

Not for all of us, though. It has been quite hectic for the family, with the prep for Corwin’s birthday party and all. I am rather glad to be able to hide out and avoid all of that stress, though tomorrow is going to be an ordeal I am sure.

Yes, I shall have to get up tomorrow and go to a wedding. Joy of joys, I am sure. I should be thankful for being invited, but honestly, gatherings of people I barely know does not fill me with joy. Not to mention that the splatfest is on this weekend and there are special items that you can only really get from participating. So in my off-time I shall be attempting to fight for Team Mayo.

Day 738: The 3rd of August

It’s Thursday again, so as you can expect, it was Wetherspoon’s time.

It is honestly the highlight of the week, seeing all of the gang and having a nice meal together. After a drink or two everything just mellows out and flows nicely into the night. It is nice just to feel tired and sleepy at the end of the evening for a change, instead of lying in bed struggling to get to sleep.

There was a pretty small group gathered this evening, by the usual standards. Still, we made the most of the time and had some fun. Ate delicious food and whatnot. That reminds me that I need to pay back someone. Clearly I drank too much to remember at the time.

Day 737: The 2nd of August

Corwin is 1 year old now. Congratulations!

Got to sit down and play a decent amount of Splatoon today. Played the new co-op mode, Salmon Run. It is actually pretty addicting once you get into it. Also finally got to A ranking in all 3 of the ranked gamemodes. S rank, here we come! Assuming I am good enough. I think I will be.

Today was actually pretty cold. It was great in that respect. Nice, cold, rainy and windy. So refreshing compared to all this stale air that has been lurking around. Had a nice lie in bed for a while this morning, with the cat lying on me and not a care in the world. So nice hiding in bed while it is cold outside.

Day 736: The 1st of August

So hot and sweaty today. Not good enough!

At least I had quite a bit of fun. Enjoyed reading my favourite book to Corwin, even if he fell asleep after a few pages. In all fairness, that is why I was reading. Got to get him into books as soon as possible so he can be extra cool.

Since this was one of those days where I didn’t spend much time in my room, I have quite the backlog of stuff to watch online now. I probably shouldn’t spend all night watching it all. Pick the most important stuff and then save the rest for later. Even though it is tempting to just keep going long into the night.

Day 735: The 31st of July

I got a haircut today.

It’s not quite as short as it could be, but I guess it is better than having hair that just covers my entire face at all times. Still, today on the whole has been fairly tiring. I’m especially feeling it tonight, since it is pretty late.

I’m just happy that I won’t be nagged to go out and get a haircut now. Means I have a bit more freedom for myself.

Day 734: The 30th of July

A short day.

Woke up a reasonable time into the afternoon, after a late night last night. Barely made this day worth having, honestly. I didn’t really do much all day either. It was a weird time.

Apparently tomorrow I shall be going for a haircut at long last, which will probably not be fun. At least it will be out of the way and I can stop having people bother me about it. Plus it will cut down on the amount of time it takes for me to get ready. So there’s that.

It does mean that I will have to get up tomorrow though. That sucks.

Day 733: The 29th of July

July is coming to a close. It has been a long month.

It feels like a lot happened over the past month, but in reality it was probably pretty quiet, huh? It has been exhausting nonetheless, with more busyness to come in the near future.

With all the trouble with the house, it has certainly not been the status quo around here, and it looks to stay that way for the considerable future. But I shouldn’t really be up talking about this. I sleep for too long as it is.

Day 732: The 28th of July

Today was the usual recovery day after the previous dose of outside.

I did have to get dressed to let in the man who came to fix our television, but other than that I spent the day in blissful simplicity. Not thinking about anything at all. Quite refreshing, I must say.

If there is something everyone can agree on though, it is that squid popstars are cute as hell. And that’s all I have to say about that.
