A Matter of Convenience

Brandon was supposed to bring his external drive to work last night but forgot, so then he was supposed to bring it in tonight instead, but decided not to because he was "using it". Maybe it's wrong of me to presume, but I would think it fair for him to let me take it home to put the TV series that he asked to be bumped up in priority on to. As is is now, I'll probably see him later this week, but giving him more things downloaded can wait until I have something worthwhile. In the meantime, I'm about halfway through his list of TV series, and George's downloads are pretty much complete, which is surprising progress. Getting him to come over here will still be an issue, but I have about a month and a half to work that out, but that's easier to deal with. If I don't reorganize my room on Thursday, I will tie up last loose ends regarding the things he wants, and Brandon, well, he emailed me on Friday afternoon asking if I would buy a shirt for him online, because he just got accepted to college and wanted to treat himself, so I'll continue downloading things for him until he leaves for that, and then I might finally be able to put that other laptop away again. It is quite stable, but is hot enough right now that I don't want to leave it running through Summer. Not that it's even Spring yet, but if the temperature gets too high it'll overheat, and that wouldn't be good.

Anyway, this entry isn't really going where I wanted it to. With having not written anything for four days, and having been up until 8:30am yesterday, and sleeping until 4:30 in the afternoon, I was hoping for something quite profound and exciting, but instead I'm just writing about the same things as normal, and the most prominent thing on my mind only concerns work tonight. Both Mary and Tom were worrying for most of the night that it would be extremely busy between ~1 and 3am, because of it being St. Patrick's Day, but it wasn't. That end of the night rush was more or less normal, and the night leading up to that was positively uneventful. We were not at all busy, and yet there were four people, instead of three as is normal for weekends. So much fun. The only personally interesting thing that I can remember is Tom telling me that he hadn't been able to get any of the cheesecake pie I made for Manoah, as if he thought I meant for him to be entitled to some. I brought cookies for everybody tonight, but I'll also make things for specific people every now and then, and when I do, that's different. I just wonder if he's going to expect something for his birthday, whenever it is...

At any rate, yes. Short day altogether, and I can't think of the words to describe what it was like waking up at 4:30pm, instead of ~2. I think there was actually a period then where my body wanted me to wake up, as that's when I would normally, but I kept my eyes closed, and eventually fell back asleep, then woke up a couple hours later, and he we are still awake now. It's fun to do that every now and then, but the problem is finding something to keep busy with. Making cookies can only go so far - that kept me busy until ~7:30am yesterday, but might be too similar to what I did previously if I try to do the same next weekend, and if I were to, say, wait until after work on Friday to reorganize my room, I'd probably get about halfway through, then move my bed to an acceptable position and call it a night with no regard for the rest. I can't even hope for it to happen in May, after the furmeet (unlike before, when we were up until ~5am cleaning the party room), as it was special before because it was the first time I'd ever done that, and the second time would obviously not be the first. Bearing that in mind, I still am looking forward to having another long day like that. Maybe I'll even cap it off by going out to get breakfast for whoever's still awake. That would be fun <3

Until then, it's time for bed, as I try to think of things that I will need or might want to do tomorrow. Shower, because I didn't get to that tonight, then finish renaming current downloads for Brandon and George, then maybe clean up my room early so I don't have to do that before going to St. Clair on Monday, and because I don't think I've mentioned it yet, my mark on my second assignment is 13 out of 15, or 87%, same as before. Decent mark once again, but I wonder even more where the two lost points came from. I can think of a couple possibilities, but instead of speculating, I'll just wait a couple days. At worst, being opinionated leads to a decrease in grade, and at best, I didn't do better because I didn't follow the teacher's version of APA format exactly. I can live with it being one or the other for now~
