We're in coach, but we sat in the front row of the car for maximum leg space. I have made an attempt to sleep, but it seems that it's not going to happen for me. The sun will be up soon though, so I'll have the flatlands of Illinois to look at.

I love that when you fly, business class is hilariously more expensive than economy, even though the perks are quite limited unless you're doing an overnight flight. I'd never even dream of flying business. But when you take the train, I've found business class across North America and Europe to be priced quite reasonably and usually with substantial perks. Though in Europe the economy service is better than Amtrak's business offering!

Business is for when you've time to kill and lounge access is what you're after.

I had the live stream going yesterday. Girlfriend arrives. Mute it for a bit to show some funny videos.

Turn it up for One Tree Hill. Hug at the end of the song. I get a reaction to my beard running across her neck.

Sexy times commence to Exit and continue through MOTD. I had no interest in muting the laptop as I was busy. Talk about a conflicting scenario.

She was having a nap by the bridge in Beautiful Day.

I suppose if you have certain... "interests", Exit could work.

Not the background music I ideally wanted. But if I hared across the room and slammed the laptop shut I may have missed a rare opportunity.

Nice.

Much in the way of future plans, or soaking in the freedom for now?

I'm taking a gap year to work and then I'm gonna go to grad school to study public policy. Right now I'm playing guitar and just enjoying freedom before I start work as a research assistant with a professor next week.

time to complain.

it's so freaking hot here (103f/39c). the worst part is, summer's only just started so it's gonna get hotter. plus, i've been in much hotter weather before. the issue is, my heat intolerance has gotten just awful. these two medications i'm on (one's to prevent migraines, the other is a sleeping pill) interact with each other and cause that sensitivity. no doctor seems to care, even when i specifically bring up the issue. hell, the last time i visited my doctor, i mentioned a non-medicinal (but still a prescription so it's not something homeopathic) alternative i could try to prevent migraines. but she'd never heard of it so therefore i couldn't take it, i guess. unless i want to go to a specialist...like geez.

it's so bad that when my boyfriend came home for lunch today (i'm off on fridays, he works), i had to ask him to drive me up to the leasing office so i could pick up packages we hadn't been able to go get since we'd both been working all week. just walking to/from the car made me so overheated. i've got the thermostat in here set at 65f/18c and i'm still miserable, even though i'm also sitting underneath a ceiling fan and drinking iced gatorade (thinking maybe i need to replenish my electrolytes). i've also got a terrible migraine, probably because of the heat. maybe because rain's coming.

We had rain this morning which helped a lot, but I'm still staying inside with the air conditioning as much as possible. My skin has gotten so sensitive now that if sweat sits on it, it gets irritated and I get a rash. And since I live in HUMIDITY LAND, sweat doesn't evaporate at all.

Strongly considering getting some of those cooling pads for menopausal women that fit inside the cups of your bra, since my underboob is the first place I get skin irritation. For now I've just been using Goldbond.

My solution when I was playing cricket last summer was an ice vest. Unfortunately I never got around to buying one, but it's the plan next season.

#Firstworldproblem:

Phone alarm goes off. Snooze it. Get up anyway. Quick email/messages check. Consider bringing the phone into the shower to listen to tunes. Decide to charge it instead.

Get in shower, shampoo goes on. Snooze cycle finishes. Have to complete shower with growing rage as the bastard alarm seems to get louder and louder. Consider fashioning a noose out of the shower curtain. Get out and turn off alarm.

Re-evaluate life. The end.

yeah, it rained overnight or something here too and it's cooled down a lot (it's only 79, omg). the good thing though is i'm home alone today as my bf has gone out of town with a bunch of his friends who've driven down from huntsville to go to a doof, so i really have no need to go anywhere until tomorrow when i need to go to work.

my skin's like that, too. if i sweat (and i don't even sweat that much if i get hot), i get really itchy. it's not any better until i can bathe.
