@Wildfire: True. I guess just not go back to sleep.
I meant if I was the worker that issued the alert I would have checked 10 times over before I sent it.


Voltie Posted 5 months ago ( 2023/04/21 17:18:48 )
@Purpsy: These alerts usually include hurricane warnings and watches, sometimes severe thunderstorms and potential tornadoes from the storms (it happens here, but not very often), child abductions, senile & at-risk seniors wandering away from home (or driving), water and watercraft advisories... that kind of thing.

No, the appointment was purely personal. I found some old-school photographic slides of a couple graphite still-life drawings I did waaaay back when and which I no longer have the originals (all I have are these old slides *sigh*). I'm trying to get somebody to scan the slides and then make prints of these drawings...

@Totalanimefan: No... by that point I was wide awake and ticked off, tbh... despite only just having fallen asleep a couple hours previously.

Yeah, you n' me both. But it seems very few people are that detail oriented these days, unfortunately...


Donator — She/her Posted 5 months ago ( 2023/04/21 17:24:43 )

@Wildfire: I also would have been unable to fall back asleep. Once something wakes me up in the morning, I'm awake. It's a curse and a blessing lol
Agreed. I always thought that it was normal, and be being detail oriented was just something everyone did, and then I got into the office workplace lol


Voltie Posted 5 months ago ( 2023/04/21 17:30:26 )
@Totalanimefan: Yeah. For me, it depends on what woke me up and how much sleep I've had... I think. I dunno. My sleep has been weird the last couple of years. But this -with that annoying as hell alarm noise- definitely woke me up. There was no going back to sleep... especially after trying to research wtf it was about. XD

... oh no... it's absolutely amazing what a lot of people let slide. I don't understand how that even happens, tbh...


Donator — She/her Posted 5 months ago ( 2023/04/21 18:39:23 )

@Wildfire: Yes if you are awoken in a panic there is no help for trying to fall back asleep lol
Happened to be when the fire alarm went off twice in my building in 2020. Needed meds lol

Agreed. It's kinda weird to me. Like don't you want your work to look professional ? Like I do make mistakes from time to time, but overall my work is uniform and professional looking.


Donator — She/her Posted 5 months ago ( 2023/04/21 18:40:07 )

Slow day a work so I got a shower in, in the morning and cleaned the kitchen just now. I'm feeling pretty accomplished :)


Voltie Posted 5 months ago ( 2023/04/21 18:59:55 )
@Totalanimefan: ditto... and ditto. And I know not everyone has the same attention span, basic intellect, etc., but there are ways to work with those things (especially these days) and still be thorough and professional... /shrug/ I dunno...

Are you working from home? I don't recall if you've mentioned that or not before. Regardless, I'm glad to hear you're having a pretty good day! :3 <3

I am pulling apart a shelving unit and trying to organize/reorganize/declutter and I'm at the point where my brain is about to burst from trying to make all the necessary decisions on books, supplies, nostalgia/keepsakes, organizing, etc. I have a new box of sell/donate books now and the shelf is cleared (except for the top shelf which now houses books on languages (English, French, Italian, Spanish, Mandarin - "learning" tools/books, as well as literature, dictionaries, thesauri, other references), but it doesn't feel like I've accomplished much, tbh. I wanted more to be in the donate/sell box from this little project, but I think I've already donated or sold all the "easy" options XD Also, I have a lot of Shakespeare... XD


Donator — She/her Posted 5 months ago ( 2023/04/21 19:39:40 )

@Wildfire: Yeah that's true. Some people's eyes just glaze over, but you also gotta make an effort when it's for work.

You need a break where you don't have to think about anything for a little while. That's a lot on your brain. I have 1.5 hours of work left on a Friday and I'm sooo ready for it to be over and for it to be the weekend!


Voltie Posted 5 months ago ( 2023/04/21 21:45:16 )
@Totalanimefan: ... yup... took a break, killed some monsters (video game). I'm kinda ready for the "weekend" to be here too actually, although for me that usually means being busier than usual because other people are now out of work and tend to kidnap me (which is not a bad thing).

Do you have plans for the weekend that you're looking forward to? Or are you just ready for it to be the end of the work day?


Donator — She/her Posted 5 months ago ( 2023/04/21 21:50:22 )

@Wildfire: I made a weekend thread there I talked about it, but TL;DR a new video game, a facial, and organizing my sister's future room here


Voltie Posted 5 months ago ( 2023/04/21 23:30:55 )
@Totalanimefan: it sounds like you have a lot going on ATM! I'll take a look at your weekend thread when I get a chance (I've only been popping in here n' there today, so haven't really looked at the forums overall)


Voltie Posted 5 months ago ( 2023/04/22 13:38:06 )
Good morning!


Donator — She/her Posted 5 months ago ( 2023/04/22 13:48:04 )

@Wildfire: no pressure. I know you are busy irl too.

I'm friendly and will chat with anyone!

Voltie Posted 5 months ago ( 2023/04/22 13:51:47 )
@Totalanimefan: lol - yeah, there's that. I looked at your weekend thread and just chose not to comment right now (but it looks like a good thread)... my current priority is getting myself suitably caffeinated for the day, and the brain hasn't quite figured out it's awake (or supposed to be awake) yet and I'm not sure what I'd post there in my current state XD

Why is your sister coming to live with you? Are you excited?


Voltie Posted 5 months ago ( 2023/04/23 11:37:20 )
............. good morning to whomever pops by!

I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend so far.


Voltie Posted 5 months ago ( 2023/04/23 15:51:12 )

@Wildfire: Ah I see, do you get notified by an alarm on your devices then? Mine is just pure notifications but some places have sirens and such.
Awe well I suppose you can jus reschedule those then hopefully did you get enough sleep now?

My weekend was me consistently napping a lot and staying in bed. I wasn't particularly sick but not too energetic since I kept waking up several times at night because of my itchy throat, which is a lot better now.


Voltie Posted 5 months ago ( 2023/04/23 15:54:45 )

@Totalanimefan: Oh my :o I didn't know those two connected! But then again several days ago I did have a smol ear ache on my left ear while I had a sore throat. But it went away like an hour later.

@Purpsy: Yes, these alerts come across the phone. Well, they don't any more because I turned them off now...

I'm happy to hear that you're recovered and taking the time you need to recover further. :3 Napping and relaxing is a good way to spend the weekend, imo. :3


Voltie Posted 5 months ago ( 2023/04/24 13:50:05 )
