@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...
@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

@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...

@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
@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!

@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?

@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)

@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?

@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.
