As previously mentioned, today was a day off work for me--the college has been off on spring break this week, but staff still were expected to be there except for today.  It's been a long week of cleaning and organizing, interspersed with the kind of fatigue that comes of working in an office without an outward-facing window, for longer hours than I'm used to in order to make up for the day off, and with very little of interest actually going on.

Today, though.  Today I did whatever I felt like and nothing I didn't.  I slept in until 9:30 and felt so refreshed and alert afterwards.  There was a nice leisurely cup of coffee and then breakfast (which is the order I prefer when I have my druthers).  The weather was gorgeous, sunny and warm with a little breeze, so I went to the park.  With this week's nest migration on Pokemon Go, there were Teddiursa at that park and I was finally able to get enough to evolve an Ursaring!  Plus I brought my sketchbook and drew some trees, though the wind was making things difficult.

Then it was home for a nice hot relaxing bath, making more progress on reading It, and playing sooo much Torment.  I am liking it even more as I get deeper into it, and I really hope I don't run into any more interesting-looking party members because I like the three I have quite well thank you!  For the TNT peeps:  I totally have Shadow in my party~~  (Seriously, she's a little girl with the ability "God of Hiding".  It makes me happy.)

So all in all, it was an extremely relaxing and batteries-recharging day.  And I still have two more days off in front of me before it's back to work again.

Full day

Here's hoping I can actually get to sleep at a reasonable time tonight, as I seem to have conked out on the couch for a good hour or so in the middle of the Pens/Fliers stadium series game. 

This morning I finished chapter two of my Access course; in the next chapter I start learning about queries.  I've had some ideas about some data at work that is currently being tracked via Excel that might be more useful in database form, but I'll have to think about it and run it by some other people (and probably get a little further into the course, so I can implement it myself). 

Despite the cold and high winds, Husband and I went out this afternoon to hunt Pokemon together.  We were very successful, and I think I added about six new types to my Pokedex today, including the last Gen 2 starter!  I also caught a really good Cyndaquil, which is now my buddy for lack of any better options.  There are just so many Gen 2 mons that don't have any evolutions, which is a little disappointing. 

The other thing we did today was go to see Get Out, which was really, really good.  Based on this movie and Keanu, I think Jordan Peele has a real talent for making movies that are highly entertaining, have moments of great comedy, and are still really emotionally weighty with something important to say.  The other people in the theater definitely seemed to enjoy it as well and applauded when the end credits rolled.  I'm still turning it over in my head even now, which is typically a mark of a good film.  Bottom line: I very much recommend it. 

Marching on

Log progress: 2.5/7 pages typed up.  I have gotten through most of the talkiest parts, so that's heartening.  And the last bit is a gryphon-fight, which should go reasonably smoothly.  Fights tend to expand from notes, but they are pretty easy to work up. 

I did not get any art work done today, but I wanted to, which is a definite improvement.  I didn't get home until almost 4 this afternoon, and what with chores and such, there was just no energy left. 

Okay, I may have spent a bit of energy walking around a nearby park to get the last couple of Magikarp I needed to evolve my Gyarados.  Finally finally finally I have my flying serpent!  And it got a pretty good moveset, too--Bite and Hydro Pump.  Next up, I'm going to walk a bit with Ponyta because I am *this* close to a Rapidash.  I want my awesome fire horse.  : P

Tomorrow is a much shorter day and I will hold myself to getting more work done.
