Bahrain – Day 3

WOW. i haven’t written since december.

i figured i’d share it here instead of facebook since this links to facebook anyways… not that they are long updates, but updates nonetheless.

So,

Day 3.

i woke up super early after having some really weird dreams – the one i woke from had Jennifer Aniston in it, and i upset her and it made me cry b/c she was so very mad at me….

yeah… in my defense – i watched a movie with her in it before i went to bed…

pondered going to the gym but talked to my husband instead ❤

normal day at work – it was TACO TUESDAY!!! so i ate more today than i have since i’ve been here… but, then – made up for it by not eating dinner…

i’ve been pounding water, but i have had a headache since right after lunch… it hasn’t gone away… i took a nap when i got back to my room, was woken by stupid people running up and down the halls screaming, now i’m perusing facebook and writing this update… i took some tylenol pm b/c i still have a headache, and will probably go back to bed when i get done here.

the end of the work day was a meet & greet for the new chiefs on base. . . there are two in the command i am working in, PLUS i got to meet the girl who helped me out when i couldn’t get my command to help me!! so that was cool… we won’t get a chance to hang out while i’m here b/c she’s going through the chief thing…

if you don’t know the story – it’s a sordid stressful affair in which a stranger’s help was a life saver… thank goodness for virtual friends!! and facebook is seriously sometimes a game changer!!

let me talk about the climate here for just a minute… since i have more space to do so…

ya know when you open an oven and you’re standing too close to it and you get that blast of heat?? well – the weather is like that – except it doesn’t go away when you move away from it… it’s hot. and super dry. and there have not been any clouds in the sky since i’ve been here… i’m not complaining – i’m just giving you a run down of how it is…

also – their work week is sunday through thursday… which means i have friday & saturday off… i want to do something interesting, but it’s a bit hot out – and well, there’s probably only one person that i can do anything with – so… we have to agree to what that will be…

so – that’s my update for day 3… maybe it is a good thing i am switching to this – i can go more into detail!!

happy day ya’ll 🙂

night shift

so, i started nights.

kind of tonight, but technically last week… i just took leave to accomodate some personal things… so, didn’t actually start it til tonight.

i didn’t take the necessary sleep schedule rearrangements… so i didn’t get much sleep today, but i did sleep last night…, so hopefully i make it all night…

one of the girls did buy me a monster (rehab – green tea) {yummm}

so… i’m sure i will be fine.

i also have a dr appt first thing in the morning FUN…

anyways

i’m ok with being on nights. for the most part.

there are a lot of benefits to it.

1. i get a LOT more gym time!!!

2. i don’t have to deal with a lot of the people that we have to deal with during the day shift

3. no spot checks at night (navy people know what i mean…) {ok, maybe just ETs}

4. a lot more laid back on nights (mainly due to lack of people)

5. more blogs! haha yes, i know you all are SO excited about this!!

 

it’s just in general a bit easier…

and i can do crafts!! 🙂

although, we do have a new policy that prohibits streaming now…

so i can’t listen to music…

booo 😦

and no one can watch movies either…

i know, i know… who complains about not being able to watch movies during work…

 

 

Catfish

there is a show called “Catfish” on MTV currently.

It’s a spinoff from a movie of the same title.  what it is – documentary about the lies people play out online.

i.e. – i’m a hot blonde and i’m interested in you… reality: i’m a black gay dude…

WHY — why — why do people lie???

i mean seriously, what gives…

i understand people have alternate realities…

and i still just don’t understand that…

if you aren’t happy with your life, do something about it.

don’t act like things don’t exist…
cuz they do
and the lies you tell will come back to bite you in the ass.

i really just hate people who lie.

i REALLY do…

it bothers me to no end.

i mean, geez we have an entire reality show based on the lies people tell.

*shake my head*
