Having the daylight set so early during this time of the year throws me off pretty badly! I go to work for 7:00 a.m. and then I come back, starting at 4:00 p.m. or later; my body keeps thinking that I need to sleep soon after the sun sets.
It makes it surprisingly hard to want to do anything after work, besides curling up and sleeping in my bed. I haven’t even started my pokemon shield game, which has already been released since last Friday!
On top of the daylight savings time shift, I have so many things stacked up from now until the end of the year. A lot of it has to do with social gatherings, attending events (OOAK 2019 and Pet Expo anyone?), and preparing for more social gatherings! Also, my birthday is coming up in a week or so and it is mandated that I celebrate with my parents.
Not only do I have a lot of planned upcoming events – I’m also planning to get a bird! About 15 years ago, I had a couple budgies and since then, I’ve been wanting to keep a bird again. Last weekend, I went to a store a couple hours away from home to play with the new birds – apparently I was so excited to hold a bird that I ended up staring at it for 5 minutes, all while doing nothing else.
The rest of last weekend was about fixing up my craft room to accommodate a potential bird. Our house is going to get new windows, so hopefully it will be nice and cozy! Everything seems to be coming together for this moment.
I am still weighing in on some options for bird species, but I am leaning towards a small conure; a close second would be getting two lineolated parakeets. I like different things about each of the species, but I am limited to choosing one. The decision is probably going to happen in the next month or more.
Tangent topics aside, I still want to keep crocheting a new piece per week! It’s just really hard to do it at the peak season of social events and with little to no sunlight – I’m hoping I can do a post every week, but probably in some weird intervals. I did plan having a week to myself at the end of this month, so there might be more than one update next week, fingers crossed.
About 5 more working weeks until the end of the year! What sort of plans do you have in store?
