During my lunch break, I got my sub. Subtracted: I suspect like three or so of the sauces I'd normally add, since they simply weren't there be it from shortage or deliberate design (i.e., not carrying them at least at that branch anymore). Added: the option to toast veggies with the sub (something they used to do but for the longest time hadn't offered so I'm glad it's back because I like to roast onions), and bacon. (The bacon costs extra but I believe does add a lot.)
I also nailed my graveyard drink. Perfect balance of flavor, just the right level of sweetness and other mixtures of various flavors. It even had ever so slightest the amount of fizz, though if my formula needed any improvement it was in the amount of fizz to add since the bubbly taste was a bit weaker than preferable. That being said, too weak is better than too strong. I have nothing against carbonated beverages. My formula makes heavy usage of them, and I drink coke all the time, not to mention cider.
...But carbonation just has a timing to it, if that makes sense. Certain times feel better to have carbonation than other times, and when I am having my sub, I don't really want it. At least not strongly. I also don't want a sweetness overload. Not too sweet, but not too bland. A little heavy in sugars, but not enough to overwhelm my mouth. And mostly, I was successful in that regard.
The formula I use is filling the very bottom of the cup with half (if that) a dash of ice (enough to interact with the liquid, but not to dilute the flavor/taste of said liquids), about three dashes of lemonade, two dashes of tea, a dash of Sprite, a dash of Root Beer, two dashes of some fruity vitamin water thingy, a dash and a half or so of cherry coke, maybe one or two others similarly in small doses, then extras for the lemonade (most), tea (second-most), and fruity vitamin water thingy (third), with the occasional boost to the cherry coke if I think I need the extra there. Not an exact science, sadly.
Anyway, after that came tae kwon do. The new kids we have you'd never know were new. Last class, it was painfully obvious that the newbies were newbies in many different ways. Some kids were better than others and by the end most had gotten a grasp on the concept, but overall the new kids were not really good listeners and it showed. This class, however, the new kids perform exceptionally. They are doing as well as the class after them, made up of students who have been at this a while and arguably are even more successful at actually progressing.
So it went pretty well there. Up until near the end of the adult class, where my knee suddenly started hurting. This is not a consistent pain, where it is always hurting. This is not a pain where I know what triggers it. It's a pain which isn't around...until suddenly, randomly and inconveniently, it is. I first noticed it when I got the shin injury and attributed it to being from said shin injury, but now I'm pretty sure that's not the case; the pain is from the knee joint itself.
My teacher also noticed what I have long-since dubbed my lazy eye. (Yeah I know that's a real term; I know that my usage of the term has absolutely nothing to do with the real term.) It's when one of my eyes is very, very, very visibly red. I'm pretty sure it's a result of a dry eye, since the eye will be irritated, I will want to keep it closed more often, sluggish, a nuisance, and utterly random. Almost always just one eye, more often the left than the right.
It's not at all an uncommon occurrence coming from me but it still raised my teacher's concern, albeit only to the point of some questions and a suggestion to go drink some water. (Because I forgot to hydrate myself throughout the day for the most part--I meant to, but I just legitimately didn't remember at any point to drink water like I normally would.)
When I came home, I learned that we had a mass-extermination again. This time by turning all the lights in the house off except those in the kitchen, and spraying the hell out of it with bugspray. There's still a few remaining, but it did seem to work. (Concerns have been raised as to the wisdom of this action, but my family seems to believe after talking out the details of the action that this is safe enough to have done.)
Since then I got to hear a number (albeit not all) of my younger sister's stories about her experiences during the Humans vs. Zombies minigames she's participated in. She's actually one of the more competent players around from my understanding and at one point I believe was even scouted to join one of the better teams in existence. (I don't know the details there, like if she accepted or not. I know in her old team she was second-in-command.) She's shared how her team wins a fair number of games or comes close to winning a number of games, so she tends to know what she's doing for the most part.
She also made my dinner tonight: spaghetti. Was delicious.
I'm also on the verge of sickness--I'm not sick right now, I can tell that I'm not because I know when I'm sick and what me being sick is like and this isn't me being sick, but I am in pseudosickness, which has much the same symptoms of sickness and in fact can directly lead TO sickness if not treated. The treatment for pseudosickness is high-quantities of high-quality sleep, meaning all I really need to do is actually go to bed.
Which, in my defense, I had a decent plan for yesterday. I just was negligent in checking a text asking me to work two hours earlier in the day, which pushed me from having "reasonable amount of sleep" into "sleep deprived for three days in a row". I could easily make that four given that I have a meeting tomorrow if I'm not careful about when I go to bed.
Though that said, this...might not go very well.
I was expected to fill out paperwork.
The link they gave me to fill out the paperwork...
...Didn't actually work.
This email was sent some time today, and I was at work all of today, so I didn't get to tell my recruiter this until tonight, meaning that I won't get an answer until tomorrow...if then. Which is obviously an issue. I believe the appointment is at 10:00, but I don't remember for sure; I believe it's in Everett but I don't know for sure and wouldn't be able to confirm any address 100%; I DEFINITELY know that the paperwork will be a pain in the ass.
All for something I may not even go through with.
It's experience. Not the most pleasant of experience, but experience all the same!
