Q:DEREK WHERE ARE YOU???
My brain is not working today.
And it’s making me look like I suck at my job. It took me almost 15 seconds to figure out what 190 x 6 is.
My sleep schedule is way off.
I woke up early this morning and couldn’t go back to sleep, so I got up and started my normal routine, which led to me unwittingly leaving for work an hour early. Oops. I went and grabbed an early lunch and have been wasting time listening to podcasts since.
I tried to pay my ticket yesterday, but it didn’t show up on the website. I called and it wasn’t on the automated thing either. I finally talked to a lady who told me it probably won’t show in the system for another week or two. I got it on the 2nd. They are basically just setting people up to forget and get a warrant issued.
Today is my first day back to work after vacation and I came in to see that there are fifteen extras. That means there were fifteen more people scheduled than they are planning on using and will be sending people home. I just got back and I’m tempted to go home.
There are certain aspects of my life I really need to start taking more seriously. I want to buy a house and get back in shape and get a better paying job. All of that can be obtained fairly easily, I just keep putting it all off. I need a push.
I used to love keeping a beard or some form of facial hair, but I seriously have so much grey in it already now that I no longer enjoy it. Not that it matters because I have to shave for my job anyway. I work in an industry full of gambling and drinking where legal prostitution and drugs and only an arms length away and they are still cranky about hair and tattoos. I don’t understand this world.

Some things and suches and whatnots
I can now confidently say that Florida’s humid low 90s is worse than Vegas’ dry high 1-teens.
The new Harry Potter ride opened to an average weekend wait time of 400 minutes. That is not a typo; people were standing in line for over 6 hours.
The weather here is so consistently inconsistent that you can count on never being able to count on it.
I’ve had more bug bites over the past four days than I have in the past four years living in the desert. But my sister has had it so much worse.
Jurassic Park ride tomorrow. You bet your ass I’ll be singing the theme song the entire time. I may even make up lyrics.
I kinda sorta have a date with Ukrainian girl when I get home, if I want it. All I have to do is call. Of course, last time, when that was all I had to do, I didn’t. But this girl is much more my style (aka she reads).
Living in Las Vegas has spoiled me for a lot of things, like parking, food, money management, attractive people, and food. Oh, and last calls.
Speaking of last call, it’s your last chance to get you some Every Flavor Jelly Beans. Message me if you want to be selected at random (sorry, I can only afford to buy for one).
A lot of these sound negative, so I would like to state for the record that I am having an awesome time and love spending it with my family.
There are no wrong decisions in life, remember that. Every choice we make was made in a moment that needed choice. And although we may fork our lives into paths that may not be revisited, rest assured in knowing that the path you took was right for you in that moment. Life is not a game with right and wrong answers; it is not a draw of a card or a roll of the dice with winners and losers. It is a series of steps we must choose that continue a journey that ends with experiences, not victories or failures. So, when the time comes, consider your options and make your decision. But once made, let it be done, and remember that, no matter how important it may seem, it is but one drop in a waterfall that will continue to flow.
Who wants some Bertie Botts Every Flavor Jelly Beans?
Heart this post and I will send a random person a box. You must be willing to give me an address though to send to.
