Addicted to the fear

I NEVER watch scary movies. EVER. I’m a total wimp at this stuff. I used to get nightmares cuz I would stay up late watching x-files with my dad. I can still picture this freaky alien in my head every time I think about it. I remember sleeping in my parents room for 2 weeks when I watched the Japanese version of The Ring in middle school. MIDDLE SCHOOL!! yeesh. I really avoid scary movies now at all costs. I won’t even watch the previews! However, the bf and I got suckered into watching The Walking Dead, and now we can’t stop. The first night we watched it, I couldn’t sleep. I kept waking up thinking a zombie was gonna eat me, and I made sure to wake the bf up every time so I’d be comforted back to sleep. TOTAL WIMP I tell ya.  Then I started making sure that I watched some kind of comedy after completing two episodes at night. After the second night, this usually helped me fall asleep. I also try to distract myself with my phone during the scary parts, but I know I’m secretly peeking at the screen. We’ve finally made it through both seasons and we’re dying for more!! I still need the comedic relief afterwards to forget about the zombies and such, but I’m soo addicted.

“vacation”

I’ve been on a sort of “vacation” these past three weeks… as in I’ve been working FIVE days a week instead of seven… and I have to say, it’s been amazing! All the college kids came back and wanted to work, and I had friends and family in town, so I had my part time gig take me off the schedule. I was supposed to go back last weekend, but they forgot to put me back on the schedule, and I honestly didn’t care to go back. I didn’t know it was like to have a weekend until now! I slept in on my Saturdays and Sundays, got chores done, went grocery shopping, and caught up on my tv! The only draw back is that my wallet is much smaller than I can handle, so sadly, I must return to my 7 day work week. I’m fumbling with my finances to see if I can pull off having a weekend again, but I don’t see it happening any time soon. I think my time is better spent making money than sitting around the house watching tv… I just have to keep telling myself that! I guess I’ll just start taking days off from my full time gig to make up for it 😛 At least I have some vacation days to spare.
