Right off the bat, I know I didn’t post yesterday. I really had nothing new to say or contribute to, so I opted to keep my fingers off the keyboard and save you, my faithful readers, from reading the exact same dribble that I had been posting day after day. So, thank you for your understanding, and now I will get back on track and hopefully have something interesting to say today. I doubt it, but hey, I like writing this blog and plan to continue it for a long time and sometimes my life is just really boring, like it is now. That being said…
Teresa and I went and saw Avengers: End Game in IMAX 3D last night. No spoilers here. It was a good movie. It was 3 hours long but didn’t feel like 3 hours. The new theater in Waukee (9 miles away) has the largest IMAX in the world and the seats are set perfectly so you don’t have to swivel your head to see it all. It was incredible. And on Tuesday nights it’s only 12 dollars a ticket for IMAX movies. Let me just say End Game was well worth the price of admission and I look forward to seeing more movies this way.
My cough is better all the sudden. I mean I am still coughing some, but no where near as bad as I was coughing. And it’s a dry sounding cough. I only coughed quietly like 5 times during the movie. And a couple times here at home last night. I don’t know why the drastic change has occurred but I am not going to argue with it. If my cough wants to go back to being a light chronic cough, so be it. I’ve had a light chronic cough since 2015, I can live with that.
My knee hurt real bad last night, with the cold and wet. Makes me think its tendonitis of the knee and I am just going to have to live with it hurting until it decides to stop hurting. I have tendonitis in almost every major and some minor joints, so why not my knee too. It’s painful, I have a slight limp, I’m getting old. I won’t be running any partial marathons or doing Olympic style weight lifting any time soon. So I have to live with some pain for the rest of my life, at least I have a life to have the rest of.
Before the movie last night we went to the new Culver’s in front of the theater. It was good, but it was expensive. I had forgotten just how expensive Culver’s is. And the obviously new cashier had no clue what she was doing. Everything was messed up, but it tasted good, so I am not going to complain too much. They (the employees) were all new, it was day 3 of them being open, so there is a learning curve and we got caught up in their curve. It could have been a lot worse, I, at least, got my chicken, and Teresa got her shrimp. So in the end, it was all good.
Oh Skyrim, how do I love your game. Playing another Orc. Decided I didn’t care about archery. Just doing around killing things with my Warhammer. She is like level 12 now. Going to take her to Solsteim early and get the CHAOS enchant for her weapon while it’s early. Gonna be a tough fight though, the guy who drops the CHAOS enchant also wields a Warhammer and it already has the enchant on it. And that enchant hurts. So hopefully Lydia my follower can soften him up some before I clobber him with my pathetic Fire enchanted Warhammer.
Also, still running my Khajitt assassin. She is running around in the ancient shrouded set from the long dead assassin. Going to have to upgrade armor soon though. The armor just doesn’t keep up with what she can currently make. But I don’t want to give up the abilities the armor gives yet. And the armor is not disenchantable so I can’t make copies of the armor yet because I do not have the enchants. But I will get them and it’ll be all good.
I never did call Financial Aid. I decided to not worry about it until it’s time to worry about it. Closer to the 10th. Yeah, it’s the first. So 9 days away until summer tuition is due. I am just going to hope financial aid has their proverbial crap together and gets my bill paid on time.
Speaking of Financial Aid, I screwed up and accepted entirely too much money for summer. I needed about 2000 and they loaned me over 5000. Well, since 5000 is more than the 2000 I needed, it’s not a bad thing. Just a thing that is gonna throw my paying it back off a little in a few years. Make my payments higher. Oh well, extra money is never a bad thing to have.
So, I got into my 3 classes. Need to check book requirements again. Need my stupid ID so I can order my books. Maybe my ID will be in the mail today, that’d be nice. I can’t do much of anything without my student ID right now.
Anxiety is high but my new, don’t care until it’s time to care attitude is helping that some. I know it’s not a good attitude to have but it’s what I got to do to deal with the anxiety. So, I am gonna roll with it.
