Journal Entry #135

I did it!!! I worked 5 nights last week! It was easy getting to work last Sunday because I had had so many days off prior but, this Sunday (yesterday)… after working all those days, I couldn’t get myself to work again. My body was/IS way too sore right now!

Hmm, last time I wrote was Thursday!! Way too long ago, right? It’s sooo hard to remember all the days.

Let me try though…

I think before I went into work boyfriend and I stopped for a drink together Thursday night. I checked in around midnight and left at a little past 4 AM. It was the best night out of the week for me!

On Friday, boyfriend worked so I had to heat up some leftovers for dinner. I didn’t do much but watch Love Island, I’m sure. I went into work around midnight and stayed until 3 AM. It was an alright night but, not at all good for a Friday.

Saturday night at work, things only got worse. There were less customers than there were on SUNDAY and it was just not good. I left before 2 AM even hit.

Boyfriend did have the day off on Saturday though so, we were able to go out to eat together for dinner. ๐Ÿ™‚

We went back to Satay Thai Bistro & Bar which we’ve only been to once before!

Last time, we got the spring rolls and duck for our appetizers but, this time we chose the Vegan Curry Samosas to replace the duck.

I liked them but, felt they were a bit too wet with grease and boyfriend said they needed more curry flavor to them.

If they’ve got Pad Woon Sen on the menu, you and I both know by now that’s what boyfriend’s ordering! Lol.

They really jipped him on the spice and he ended up eating Thai chili peppers to satisfy his need!!

I ordered a Mongolian dish called Char Kway Teow. It tasted just like the Khmer dish my mom always made called Kuy Teav Cha and man, did the words sound almost the exact same when the waitress repeated the order back?! Are they the exact same dish even pronounced the same way?! I think they are?

After dinner, we made our usual run to Starbucks for our iced shots of espresso. When we got home, I got ready for work but, it was still a bit early when I finished with everything so, we went to Bahama Breeze for a quick fruity drink.

I got the Three Little ‘Ritas! A flight of different flavored margaritas. ๐Ÿ˜‰ There was strawberry, hibiscus, and tamarind. My favorite was the tamarind, then the strawberry. I liked the hibiscus but, it was my least fave so I gave it to boyfriend since he finished his drink so quickly!

He got some rum-filled drink that tasted almost cinnamon-y. He mostly chose it because I wanted the souvenir cup it came with, hahaha. It was good though!

Yesterday, when we woke up, it was already nearly 5 PM! I was thinking of going to work so we quickly made our way to the dispensary and the grocery store. Luckily, I already had the list ready!

wp-1536016223369..jpg

We brought the weed and groceries back home, I took a shower and in there, decided that I was NOT going to be able to work. I was so exhausted– mentally and physically.

Since I wasn’t going to work, boyfriend and I both were like, let’s doooo: SUSHI SUNDAY!

We decided to go back to our old fave spot, Sushi Neko, but, after looking at the menu… we were like BORING… we walked out and went up to I โค Crab.

THEIR DOORS WERE LOCKED! So they must be closing down? Or maybe changing their name like I suggested? IDK. But we were then FUCKED because we didn’t really wanna go anywhere else besides Sushi Neko and we had just walked out of there LOL.

wp-1536016223385..jpg

OH WELL! We walked back in as if nothing happened, heheh. They had a new iPad ordering system so the food came out extremely fast– sometimes even while we were still ordering it!

I spent the remainder of my Sunday night sat in front of the tele watching Love Island.

Today, I woke up at almost 2 PM.

I caught up a little on my Reader but I’m still a day or so behind… because if you’ve been reading this whole entry up until now; you may have realized I’ve got a bit of a new addiction. I’ve got Jennieย to blameย for recommending that Love Island to me but only myself to blame to for letting the addiction become nearly uncontrollable…

I finished reading Words on Bathroom Walls by Julia Walton… aaaand wow, it was good. Look out for my mini review and favorite quotes from that book once I get my thoughts altogether.

I took a shower when I was done reading and then came onto WordPress to type up my favorite quotes. I attempted to write the review, too, but, my brain wasn’t ready so I smoked a joint and then, started typing this instead.

Boyfriend got home in the middle of this entry! Yay! ๐Ÿ™‚ We’re smoking a blunt now and then he will be cooking us dinner. I can’t wait!

I also can’t wait for my mail! I made a few online orders a couple days ago– some things off Amazon Smile and then a few items from the Birchbox store. I’ve already received half of my order from Amazon and I don’t even have Prime!

wp-1536016223438..jpg

It’s a padded fitted sheet that’s going to go over our mattress topper that I also ordered. It hasn’t come yet though so I haven’t opened this. I also got something that would fall under the beauty category so I’ll make a “beauty haul” post of some sort when my Birchbox items get here, too.

I haven’t even tried any of my August sub box makeup yet (besides my Ipsy stuff) and I’ve already purchased more? Yikes… I’m itching for Sept. 17 to get here, too, because my First Aid Beauty face cleanser is going on sale at Ulta. Does anyone know if those 21 days of beauty will be available online and in-store? Or just one or the other?

Tomorrow is the second musical of the Broadway season! I’m going to see On Your Feet! and I’m more than excited. Eeee! Can’t wait to tell you guys all about it. ๐Ÿ˜€

I should go now… I’ve taken up enough of your time, yeah? I wanna watch Love Island but, I need to type up some blog posts and catch up on Big Brother. What will I do?!!!

  1. Great post!i don’t know what it is about your journal entries, but they’re just SO interesting to read, probably because of your super creative career or because of the amazing food you eat.Either way, love this post!

  2. As usual the food looks so good! I bet that was the same dish you knew. And now, Like Emmitchell I am also craving it. I don’t care that it’s not even 6AM, that looks like an awesome breakfast to me.

    Our usual AYCE sushi place has that iPad ordering system and it’s great – it seems to really speed things up. It also seems to avoid something I’ve seen at other AYCE places – they bring out the first orders right away and then come less and less often – likely hoping you’ll realize you’re full and give up.

    1. I think it is the same! ๐Ÿ™‚ I am craving it again now, too! Hahah. The iPad ordering system is just wonderful, I loved it! I have noticed that they either start coming less or purposely forget things you ordered at AYCE places!!

    1. Yes! It’s a reality show on Hulu! Not sure if you would like it lol but maybe! Not sure if it’s on Netflix though. ๐Ÿ˜› & UGH YES, I was exhausted but am going to try for a 4-day week at work this week starting tonight!

    1. That’s very true! I’m a huge tamarind fan but, I guess not enough others are to make it a common flavor! So nice to have met someone else who loves it, too. โค
      Thanks so much for your kind words and for stopping by my blog!!! It means more to me than you know!!

  3. Those are some awesome looking meals. Try to think of going to work as being like going to the gym. I’ve been contemplating a new work out schedule; the article says you can work out seven days a week with their method, but at my age I’m afraid I’ll just pull something. Still, I’m tempted to try it for a month and see what happens.

    1. Going to work IS like going to the gym, that’s why it’s so hard for me to go every night lol. ๐Ÿ˜› My body gets so sore and exhausted. Even when I tried to do this small 15 minute workout daily, I could NOT do it 7 days a week. That’s CRAZY! I am too weak lol.

      Liked by 1 person

          1. Right now most of my workout are at home, rotating yoga, martial arts, and body weight exercises, with one day a week at the gym for the muscles I can’t otherwise hit. And I walk to work every day (45 minutes). I’ve been losing a pound a week for four months. But this article I read on a website I trust has an interesting idea for muscle growth and timing the use of high weight/low reps and low weight/ high reps sessions I really want to try out.

  5. Love Island is addictive!!!!! Sorry not sorry, ha ha. I love that youโ€™re so into it. And Iโ€™ve found myself even more addicted and sorry to mention it to you now, but youโ€™re just going to have to watch Love Island Australia too ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ It was the first year for Aus this year and uhhhh, Iโ€™m hooked! Itโ€™s so so good, so much drama! So yeah, once youโ€™re done with the Uk version you need to check out the Aus edition please ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
    Yay for going to work 5 days last week! You go girl ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ i canโ€™t imagine how worn out you must have been tho on the 6th day, no wonder you decided to have sushi sunday instead!
    Those Margarita drinks look delicious, and i love that souvenir cup. Me and my bestie are a sucker for a souvenir cup, so i probably would have got that drink just for the cup like your boyf did for you! So cute!
    Also Iโ€™m pretty sure those dishes are the same name- they sound verrrry similar. All that food looks so yummy!
    Enjoy On Your Feet! Iโ€™ve not heard of that show- let me know how it is please! Have the BEST time!
    Xx

    1. Hahah I hate that I’m so addicted to it. I’m mad on the days where I don’t have time to fit in watching it! I had no idea if I was watching the UK or Aus version but, I’m mad that it only has 4 seasons on Hulu when the show has been going on for YEARS. I don’t think the Aus version is even on there at at all. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
      Thank youuuu, babe! I was def exhausted and only working 4 days this week (hopefully)!
      Cups are just the best souvenirs because they’re cute yet practical, right?!
      I will def let you know how On Your Feet! was in my next Journal Entry. ๐Ÿ™‚ โค

      1. Itโ€™s both a blessing and a curse! No the Aus version probably isnโ€™t on there yet but once it is oooh you are gonna love it! Yesterdays episode oh my gosh!!! Insane ๐Ÿ˜‚
        Ah yay!! 4 days is brilliant, and hopefully one less day will mean slightly less tiring!
        Yes they are, definitely the best souvenir.
        Ok I look forward to it! Hope it was fab! X

  6. My mouth is wateringgg at those samosas. YUM! Bummer there wasnโ€™t enough of a curry flavor- I hate when samosas basically just taste like fried bread, but the dipping sauce looks tasty at least! Thatโ€™s so interesting about those two dishes too- I bet they are basically the same thing?! Aw love Bahama Breeze!! I used to love that restaurant when I lived in OH. Cannot wait to hear about the show!! Wooohoo! Have fun ๐Ÿ™‚

    Liked by 1 person

    1. I liked the samosas! Boyfriend is just a bit picky and always critical haha. I wonder if the dishes are the same. I guess I will have to ask my ma and see if she knows lol. Bahama Breeze is so fun, right?! They must have some in Cali, too?! I’ve posted about the show just now!! Hope you enjoy reading it!! โค

  7. The food from Thai bistro looks amazing. And the three little Ritaโ€™s Iโ€™d love to try! Iโ€™ve never had a flight of drinks lol. And just today I was craving fruity alcoholic drinks. I hope I get my fix tomorrow.
    And I canโ€™t believe you walked out only to come back in lol. Good that your food came quick though.
    And Iโ€™ll have to find love island too but Iโ€™m afraid Iโ€™ll get hooked haha. I was watching my anime yesterday and slept late hahaha

    1. I am really loving the Thai Bistro. It may be my new fave Thai spot now!! Those little ritas were so cute, I think you would love them. ๐Ÿ™‚ I love flights because I always have such a hard time deciding and I always wanna try everything!
      Love Island is a love reality dating show. Do you like those sort of shows??

        1. You should look up Tapas restaurants!! They have little samplers of everything but sometimes can be a bit spendy. Happy hours are always so worth it though!

          YESS!!! I used to love Flavor of Love hahah!! โค

  8. I hadn’t even thought about how sore you would be with working five days a week, but of course you would be! No wonder you decided not to go back to work, that makes total sense to me. Maybe if you still want to work more, you could just up it to 4 days/week and see how that goes for awhile so your body can adjust lol. ๐Ÿ˜‰
