Maybe it's because I haven't been working so much lately and definitely sleeping too much but insomnia has hit once again. I think it is partially to do with, tonight, it's just hot in here. I finally had to shut the windows and turn the AC on.
I still have no full time job though not for lack of trying. I wish I'd kept tally because I'm sure the applications are upwards 40+, and I've have 4 interviews: two of them at the museum, one at a temp agency, and one at a legitimate non-pity feeling work place (i.e. they don't feel obligated) Either I just don't have what it takes, people are super slow, or the market around here is THAT bad. So I've decided to pick up more hours at the museum by working in the box office. I think it's best suited for my personality right now.
Pissed off at my mother. Back when I had my root canal, which she took me to, she told me I still had active insurance, that she had talked to the administrating company to make sure of it. Low and behold, there was a problem with it and they have been super nice about the filing. Well I finally broke down and called the administrating company: guess what, she was either just LYING or really had become delusional. Fortunately my COBRA paperwork finally came in last week so we just have to decide how far along we're going to pay for it. It isn't too bad and my next paycheck at the museum will probably cover it.
We're moving. We spent a good chunk of Friday looking at places. I tell you, I've seen the gamit on some of these places. We're leaning towards a nice townhome in Broad Ripple Apartments. It sits right on the Monon, behind the strip mall where Sunflower Market is. We'll probably only have to drive to work or if we're going downtown or something. Excellent. I might see if I can get a carpool going with a friend for the museum, too.
I've started going to a new doctor. I made no bones about it that I highly disliked my previous physician. I asked him to run certain tests (mostly for hypoglycemia, my migrain-like headaches etc) and he pretty much refused. Once I talked to my new doctor, he automatically said he wants an MRI done and to do the hypoglycemia test. I love him. I actually feel like he has my best interests at heart. I had my first (well first that I can remember) blood work done. I'm pretty healthy and normal. Zach decided he wanted to drink, though, the night before, and I gave into peer pressure. So my glucose levels were 'normal' but could be low in normal conditions. He said that although my cholesterol was OK (178), my triglycerides were high (320) but my BDL/LDL ratio was 1, so he wasn't too worried, just to try to watch it. Two things I found could have effected it: the flax seed oil I was taking for my eyes and the alcohol I had drank the night before. He said I might be leaning a little to diabetes, so that's probably why he wants to do the hypoglycemia test. He also said that I am leaning a little to hypothyroidism. Not a huge surprise: depression, have a hard time losing weight, and I get cold easily. But he said that since I'm physically active, it's not a huge worry. Because of the migraines (and that's what we're calling them until otherwise proven), I'm going to get an MRI. See, I have the energy to be more physically active, it's just the headaches get in the way. He's given me a migraine medication sample to try, because really if it feels like a migraine, might as well treat it like one. Also, my grandfather and mother both have a well documented history with them, so it was really just a matter of time.
I got a hair cut on Friday and I'm not terribly happy with it. I think I might just grow it out again and go back to the old style. She did what I asked, it just didn't work. I want something a little younger looking, a little more trendy, but with curly hair...who knows what might work.
I'm still not sleepy but I think I'm about done. I think I'll be putting together a September playlist soon, skipping August entirely. August just wasn't a great month.
