Journal Entry #205

Finally, January is almost over. I am ready for the month of looooove to start. πŸ˜‰ It’ll be boyfriend and my’s 5th Valentine’s Day together! Not sure what we’ll be doing yet though.

Yesterday, I laid in bed and read some blogs on my Reader and a few chapters of Sweetpea right when I woke up. I didn’t take a shower until a little past 4 PM. I was thinking about going to work but, by the time I should’ve started on my makeup came ’round– I wasn’t feelin’ it… but hey, it’s better if I save my socializing energy for the weekend, I guess.

Boyfriend was playing his video games while I was reading. When I finished showering, he started making dinner. We watched Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce while we ate.

On Monday night, I went back to some of my very earliest posts and either deleted them completely, deleted the photos in them, deleted the featured image for them, or resized all of the photos included in them. Then, I did more of that all of last night and I was able to get my media storage percentage from like 56.8% full to only 43.7%!! I can’t believe how many HUGE photos I used to upload for no reason. Jeez.

After I got tired of cleaning up my mess of a blog, I watched the last two episodes of Girlfriends’ Season 02 before we went into bed. I fell asleep almost right when my head hit the pillow (after we smoked the blunt, of course).

Today, we both woke up at the same time (around 2 PM). I don’t have that many more days with Sweetpea before it’s due back to the eLibrary and someone else already has it on hold so I read quite a bit of it before I took a shower and joined boyfriend in the living room. I’m still only a little over 50% through with the book. I hope I can finish it on time.

When I finally got up for my shower, we were both ready to eat so boyfriend started on dinner right when I hopped in. When I finished, I pulled out my dusty yoga mat and did my YouTube full-body stretches and a quick YouTube workout. It felt wonderful. πŸ˜€ I will def be doing it again tomorrow and then everyday (or every other day) for about a month, maybe two to get myself back into ship-shape.

My sweet boyfriend had my plate in front of me not too long after I conquered my workout. I hadn’t even found anything to watch yet… there are two more seasons of Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce on Netflix but… I JUST now learned that there’s a final Season 05 that doesn’t exist on there… I have to buy it somewhere else or something. WHAT THE HECK!!! I don’t even know if I want to watch the last two seasons that are available anymore now so I chose a movie to watch instead. I think it was called Heartthrob, it has the boy from Atypical in it– genre: dark thriller. We only ate and watched for around 15 min. then, I turned it off. I think I’ll finish it later (I have all intents to but for some reason, it usually never happens).

That’s when I hopped onto here… replied to your lovely comments, wrote a little bit for my post tomorrow, and then started typing this. πŸ™‚

I did forget to mention that I woke up to the best e-mail today. The Smith Center has officially released their Broadway show lineup for the 2019-2020 season and I am so excited to renew my subscription.

I am so happy I didn’t see Wicked or The Spongebob Musical while I was in NY– those were two I was so close to buying tickets for! I have heard only the best things about The Book of Mormon and HELLO! MEAN GIRLS!? AS A MUSICAL?! YES PLEASE!!! I know Anastasia and How The Grinch Stole Christmas will be spectacular, too, but as for the other ones I didn’t mention… that’s what a subscription is for, right? To help you try new things and “expand your horizons.”

Hope you have a wonderful night! ❀ I don’t know what I’m off to do for the rest of mine!

  1. Congrats on 5 years with your boyfriend! I hope you guys do something special for Valentine’s Day!
    Ugh I dread cleaning up my blog. I’ve been trying to resize images, add alt-text to them and generally overhaul any posts that I didn’t like anymore. I’ve been doing this for months, it’s a never ending task!

    1. Thank you, Cleia!! ❀ We still haven't decided what we want to do but, I'm worried it'll just be dinner like usual when it should be a bit more special, y'know?

      Gosh, I wish I had known how to save space on my blog when I first started it. I had cleaned up my first couple months of posts awhile ago but after that, I just couldn't bring myself to do it again LOL it's sooo much work. 😦

      1. I totally get that! If you go out for dinner make sure it’s a super fancy dinner so it still feels special! πŸ˜€
        For our anniversary we usually try to go somewhere fancy (mainly so I can dress up lol). It’s a bit more expensive but worth it for us because we don’t go very often!

        I just finished fixing all of my broken links and naming my photos properly, it took me sooo freaking long. I honestly don’t even know what to do with my spare time now that I’m not grinding away at a backlog of maintenance. Unfortunately it’s necessary 😦

        1. We have done pretty fancy dinners like every Valentine’s Day in the past and we do it often for birthdays & anniversaries, too. I think we might do something more fun to make it different this year but, I still can’t decide because I love the fancy dinners so much lol!!

          I didn’t even go about renaming the photos… just resizing & I am still all the way in the beginning of 2018. I almost started doing more last night but I couldn’t bring myself to so I just exited out of all of it. It’s def necessary but SO boring lol. πŸ˜›


  2. Congrats on five years! That’s a long time. I can’t believe it’s time for Valentines again already. I’ll admit, it’s not my favorite day lol. My husband and I don’t celebrate it, but it’s fun to decorate with the kids. Hope you enjoy it!

    Deleting old posts is something I’ve been thinking about. Hmm…I just can’t bring myself to do it though. πŸ€”

    Enjoy your day, Hunida! ❀

    1. Lol thank you!! 5 years is definitely long but it feels like it has been longer, honestly! Even though you & your husband don’t celebrate, at least you decorate with the kiddos. πŸ™‚ Valentine’s Day colors are the best!

      I didn’t think I’d be able to delete any of my posts either but when I went back to look at some of the older ones, I couldn’t believe I even posted some of them & was so happy to be rid of them LOL.

      Thank you, Mischenko! Hope you enjoy your day or night too!! ❀ πŸ™‚

  3. I recently watched a show on Netflix that I got really into. It’s like a home decoration show, but with a twist and it takes place in Australia so it’s fun to listen to their accents. It’s called Insta Hotel if you’re looking for another fun show to watch; I’d recommend it.

  4. I need to get back into yoga. I know I’ll feel better if I just do it. That’s cool that it’ll be your 5th Valentines with your bf! It’ll be our 7th. Which is crazy, we’re so close to 10 years of being together and I just can’t believe it. It goes by so fast when you’re happy. ☺️

    1. It’s true! I think if you get back into yoga, you’ll feel so much better & actually want to do it everyday! πŸ™‚ Time really does go by so fast when you’re happy!! Congratulations on your 7th Valentine’s Day together!! ❀

  5. I’m so excited that it’s February as well!! January always just seems kind of stark and long lol. Now we have Valentine’s Day to look forward to! We are definitely gonna get sushi lol. Great job on saving storage on your blog!! Mine is already at 11% and it’s starting to stress me out hahaha. Also, well done on your workout! We’ve been doing YouTube workouts everyday and I just love it! Oh and that looks like a fantastic lineup of musicals!!

    1. Ugh I thought I was the only one feeling that way about January lol! It was definitely stark & long, those are the perfect words to describe it but I’m so glad it’s over. πŸ˜€ Oh! I love that you guys will be getting sushi, is there a certain spot you like or are you gonna be trying somewhere new? Thank you! It felt so good to save storage on the blog. 11% is so good!! Do you resize all of your photos before uploading them? YouTube is freakin’ great for at home workouts, right? & doesn’t it? I cannot wait to see all the shows!

      1. I’m so glad January is over also and no you’re definitely not alone! I think January is probably my least favorite month. There’s really nothing great about it lol.
        We always go to our same favorite spot since we know we like it haha! It’s Hiro’s Sushi. Not sure if there is one there in Vegas or if it’s just an Arizona thing, but it’s delicious! I can’t wait.
        Oh thank you! No I haven’t resized any photos yet, but I’m thinking maybe I should start? haha. I’m nervous about the day I start running out of space.
        Yessss love YouTube workouts! It makes everything easy and accessible and I love that so many professionals use it as a platform so you know you’re actually following someone who knows what they’re doing lol. To think people would actually buy workout programs on CD, DVD or VHS a few decades ago for at home workouts. O.O

        1. Yeah January is all stressful because the New Year starts & it feels like you need to have your whole life together… I hate it.

          I totally get why you’d just go to a spot you know you love! Sushi places are really hit & miss so you wouldn’t wanna try a miss type of spot on Valentine’s Day! I’ll have to look up the restaurant though, I don’t think there’s one in Vegas.

          Yes oh my gosh, yes. Start resizing your photos before you run out of space! Are you uploading them straight from your phone to WordPress??

          YouTube really is amazing. I remember my friend in HS bought that big DVD set of Insanity workouts!! Crazy how the times have changed LOL.

          1. Exactly!! That’s definitely why January sucks so much!
            That’s what we were thinking–it would be such a shame to get not so great sushi on Valentine’s Day!
            Ohhh haha yep I’ve been uploading them directly from my phone. How do you resize them? What do you think is a good size?
            Too true, lol! YouTube is just the best and I hope they don’t ever start charging like Netflix/Hulu, but I know I will pay it if they do lol.

            1. Before I upload them to WordPress I put them through this app called Photo & Picture Resizer. I scale them down to 800×600 but they do lose a lot of quality at that size.

              Oh my gosh, that would be a tragedy if YouTube starting charging. I don’t think I’d pay it, to be honest!

                1. There are so many sites & apps for resizing! I’m glad you found one that works for you. πŸ™‚ If I don’t resize my photos they look so much better but THANK YOU, I’m happy you don’t think they’re bad!! ❀

  6. Congratz on your 5 year anniversary! If you’re still looking for ideas, I usually make some strawberry covered with chocolate for my BF. We never plan anything special but perhaps a day in a park or something as we love nature…
    I’m still struggling with keeping the blogging schedule, let alone clean up my blog space :p…

    1. Aw thank you πŸ™‚ our 5th anniversary is actually in November but it’ll be our 5th Valentine’s together! I think we’d make a complete mess of choco-covered strawberries but that does sound like a fun idea lol. πŸ™‚ Thank you for the recommendations! ❀

      Lol I am scared I'll run out of blog space so I have to clean it up! I think I'm going to do some more today. πŸ˜›


    1. I use on my computer and on my phone I use this app called Photo & Picture Resizer. πŸ™‚ Nowadays, I resize the photos on my phone before I even upload them onto my WordPress. Back in the day I just straight uploaded them & those photos were HUGE!

    1. Our anniversary is in November πŸ™‚ it’s just our 5th Valentine’s Day together LOL so not as exciting as your WEDDING ANNIVERSARY!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

      I haven’t deleted that many posts but I have deleted & resized a TON of photos. I went down from like 50% to 30%!!! I can’t bring myself to do more now though. It’s such a boring task lol.

      I know I know!! I am so excited for those. The ticket lady in NY said Spongebob is great!! πŸ˜€
