So I did a bunch of deliveries today and wound up in my hometown where I lived for almost 25 years, (moved there in 1st grade). It was nostalgic and bleak and I honestly felt a little emotional but I kept putting my music louder to drown it out. Anyway one delivery I had a little difficulty with and these two cosplayers in this hotel from a convention felt I was very entitled to a good tip so that really made me feel warm and good inside like a creamy tea. I told them I appreciated that because I went to a million dollar mansion with $60 worth of food I waited an hour for and nothing they were so shocked. They were too nice to be from the LA area, so much rudeness here.

Got my medicine, got my food, got more calls to make (even if they're doctors, I actually enjoy going to the doctor when it's something that I need attending to. Peace of mind.), had avocado sushi and watched the very first episode of MythBusters (JATO Car\Pop Rocks and Soda) and watching the first season of The Simpsons On Demand on my TV.

Got the ball rolling on my appointment set ups.

Nothing better than getting things in order.

I am the type to have a 3-year planner in black emblazoned in white paint scrawled letters the words "GET SHIT DONE".

Trust me on it, I rather have things done and out of the way because it leaves less time to worry.

Got my financial shit together.

I also made sure to buy a gift for my father's days.

I'm feeling much better and for the first time in a long while, I don't feel dread is going to hitch a ride on my sides like I'm a shark and the dread is some remora that's get a free ride, probably at my expenses.

I actually feel much better.

My Dad's taken my brother camping in Scotland until Sunday morning, so today it was just me and my boyfriend but he had work until 6pm. He's had a bad day at work, but I decided to make dinner tonight to cheer him up. I bought some fake wine, wineglasses, white roses and a vase, and had a nice romantic meal with him.

oh and I went to Primark and bought my boyfriend a cool Assassins Creed hoodie, deadpool t-shirt, bought my brother some new shorts and... a bunch of mostly-unneeded clothes for me (although I've got a few pairs of leggings for work and I was in need of a white bra). I haven't had a shopping spree in forever!

I am currently working on finishing a game by completing it 100% and I'm at 54%. Once my characters reach Level 50 (that's as high as it will go), collect the highest level weapons and clothes for each character, I plan on doing a dungeon crawl of an urban island full of strong monsters.

I actually had time to focus my anxiety into the constructive building of a completed game.

My main character is Level 48 of 50 and her traveling companions are in the low 30s, but nothing a little grinding can't fix. Besides, the grinding in one area yields 1300-1900 pieces of gold per fight and there are 4 spots in that area to fight monsters.

Personally, I rarely finish a game 100% complete for the entire game, but I plan to finish that during my time off.

June 5th, 2018
So far, I have this week went for a med check and participated in the democratic system, albeit I stupidly walked home with my mouth open in awe of the summer gardens, results in me choking on airborne pollen.

No matter, I actually had a fine day, got two important things done and have 3 doctor appointments and an intake evaluation interview to best fit me in to do in the rest of this week's time. I even got more of my game completed.

3 appointments done, 3 appointments left.

Tomorrow, I will be on the road for the majority of the day, so I better charge my devices, get my pill case filled and dress appropriately.

I am actually nervous about my interview. I don't know how I'll be able to explain that I belong in an career involving the arts when Hunterdon County isn't home to animation studios, comic book office studios or even an office for video game design. I worry they'll stamp my case closed because of my inflexible being and the lack of studios and offices. Seriously, the arts are the only good points I have going for me and I grew up in an area of the country that was aggressive at holding tests and cutting arts programs because childless taxpayers wouldn't foot the bill for the future of America. I pursued the Arts elsewhere.

The only thing close to college I had was vocational training for three years after I graduated first semester of 12th grade (senior year).

But I really shouldn't be too picky. It's not like I'm demanding to be CEO or CCO without working in the story department as first experience. Granted, I know the storyboard process involves years of writing and re-writing before showing it to the animation and sound departments who spend years animating and vocalizing, performing songs and musical score and tying sound effects into the movie with the help of editorial department, cutting the movie together for a coherent timeline that shows a visual that took years of work as a team.

In fact, a lot of the bonus features involved with behind the scenes in animation has given me basic insight to better understand what goes into animation in terms of work. I even have storyboard diaries I use for my ideas for commercials and films.

I can only hope I don't get turned down at the interview before meeting with Colleen. I give much love to her (Colleen) as she puts up with my insanity once a fortnight (note I didn't use the ambiguous term biweekly. I don't think the state of New Jersey could grant twice a week sessions.).

What made my day is my looking forward to tomorrow, because I don't need to rush out the door for any appointments or legal obligations as an adult.

I got medicine, voted, checked for growths and rashes, interviewed, counseled and fitted for orthotics.

I plan on spending my time tomorrow getting info on The Sims 4 Seasons and playing The Sims 4, Miitopia and whatever comes up as whim for gaming. I need to unwind.

The only thing I must make happen is to call a specialist for an appointment in the next week. This work week is officially over.

The interviewer said I will be working in a couple of weeks at the training facility in the back of the building. So, for 25 days, Monday through Wednesday, I will be working in an assembly line packaging small Priority Mail packages ("If it fits, it ships") or cooking in a cafeteria, preparing water for foods prepared through boiling and other prep work that is otherwise boring.

Either way, it will give me a taste of what my parents do for a living (mom works at a pet supplies warehouse packing goods for shipment and dad works in the kitchen of a barbecue restaurant called Oink and Moo (they also serve chicken) but my father has been getting his hands chewed up from the dish pit, so that is a great concern.)

The performance review after 25 days is cut and dry in my performance and further action to take:

If I pass, they'll continue training until a suitable position opens up in town.

If I fail, they'll allow me to seek employment and prove to them that I can function in the work force without intervention from them.

We've got 3 baby groundhogs. All three of them have white noses.

They must have gotten the nose thing from dad as momma hog doesn't have a white nose. She still gives me the stink eye when I say anything to her.

Received a replacement disc from the Fantasia Anthology. Now my binder of Disney films is becoming more and more complete.

I usually group movies by first release and if a sequel of any sort is involved, it's grouped with the original release. So it's by order of release, then by story order (The Lilo and Stitch metaseries was released out of order, so I fixed it so when watching it, it is in the right story order.) for better continuity.

Aside from explain business and economics and how it would be affected Internet ownership to my mother, which brought me down...

I was actually excited to see a pre order listing for Chojin Sentai Jetman from the Super Sentai Series scheduled for September released. I'm a big Japanese culture fan, traditional, pop and counter. Chojin Sentai Jetman was created before Zyuranger (which became the first Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers season) and there are 14 series before Jetman which make up the Showa era series and a few early Heisei era series.

(Showa = Achieving Peace era, Post WWII Hirohito rule...Heisei = Peace Achieved era, After Hirohito's death midway through 1989, his son Akihito was coronated as the current Emperor. However, his health is on the decline and 60 year old Naruhito is poised for the Imperial throne due to male-only imperial laws of inheritance. I can only imagine the new era's name upon Naruhito's coronation. IMO, Japan should take a cue from England and let the women inherit too. Seriously, in the event Prince George is dethroned, his little sister Charlotte is next and not his baby brother Louis.)

Enough of my abuse of musings on royals and imperials...

It was actually a surprise. I thought they would only do the Super Sentai Series shows that were made into Power Rangers. I commend Shout Factory for suspended disbelief of their releases.

Yay for no longer using toxic oven cleaner.

Since I've had to give up candles due to allergies, I bought some essential oils and two diffusers, one for each end of the house. All except one oil has come in, but I had all the oils I needed for the 'recipe' that I've been wanting to try. The house smells awesome if I do say so myself. I'm a warm scent kind of person, so that is what the recipe below is for.

Warm Fall Bouquet

12 drops Orange Oil
3 drops Cinnamon Cassia Oil
3 drops Clove Oil
2 drops Nutmeg Oil

@Gargoyle Cat

You can get a small, tea light sized container, like a clam shell, find a couple of small, decorative rocks to put into it, along with a coiled piece of jute, or hemp cord under the stones, poking up between them for a wick, get some olive oil, and mix it with whatever scents you want. Nice little do it yourself project.

When I'm out in the "Bush", I do this using freshwater clam shells, stones, and hand made yucca twine, with rendered tallow. A nice light for the Wikiup, or debris hut, or your living room. Just don't knock it over!

Today I got the ball rolling again.

I went to get a request for my specialist (the one concerning my implant) and I got a creamsicle slushy.

I also had left a message for my pill doctor for everything driving me crazy.

With that squared away, I now can rest easy.

Watching YouTube E3 Treehouse videos of Super Smash Brothers Ultimate on the largest screen in the house.

Smart apps for our TV and our TV is kinda old that there's a dark spot that discolored the screen.

Returning to my binge watching of Supernatural. I have stayed loyal since the beginning and it feels very homely. I also made a huge Margarita and it got me so wasted. I began to furiously clean the fridge xD

My little brother who just recently got his driver's license (and loves driving around) took me into town for a few hours earlier. Due to financial issues, I am lucky to be out of the house for even a normal work day (8 hours) leangth in an entire month or more!

He did this last week, too.

The times we do go into town are what I look forward to from day-to-day!
