Oh dear...

I completely forgot about this thing! It's a good thing I overheard one being talked about in the halls this afternoon. I might never have remembered otherwise. Geeze.. I feel like Colonel Mustang horribly guilty for procrastinating so much. I suppose that with so little going on, however, it's easy to forget about something like this.

Admittedly, even though I'm finally remembering to update, there isn't much to update ON. Oh, I got the fish. I did a lot of checking to make sure it was all right and now Scales sits on top of my dresser. He's only a small goldfish but he still makes the room a little nicer.

I also talked with Lieutenant Havoc a few days ago. It seems that, while he's finally managed to find and keep a girlfriend, she may have tastes that are too expensive for him. I'm afraid I might regret it later, but I've given him a $175 loan. He promised to pay me back so I'll have to hold him to that.

Well, I need to be getting to work. Hopefully I won't be forgetting about this journal anytime soon again..!

I'll be picking up my new glasses tomorrow afternoon. Thankfully, they weren't as expensive as I expected they would be and a week isn't too long to wait. The tape is holding up pretty well.

Ah, it's a good thing the glasses didn't cost too much. I wouldn't have been able to afford drinks earlier tonight if they had been. [Note to self: Stop letting co-workers talk me into going to bars. Come up with more excuses.] I drank water most of the night, personally. I can't handle alcohol very well. I also left fairly early... I hope the others made it home all right.

I suppose there hasn't been much else going on.. Oh, Second Lieutenant Havoc has finally started his own journal. He didn't seem terribly pleased about it but at least he's being productive this way. Now, if he could cut down on all of those cigarettes a bit then he wouldn't be yelled at nearly as much, I don't think. Of course it's not my place to say anything but smoking so much (particularly several packs a day) is definitely a health hazard.

Anyway! I guess I'll try to get some sleep now.

At least I won't have to worry about a hangover in the morning..

Well, yet another week has gone by without too much incident. It's been mostly quiet around work. There was a small situation between First Lieutenant Hawkeye, Colonel Mustang and Black Hayate but it passed over without too much incident.

I fixed two telephones and five radios last week but that isn't very interesting, I suppose. Hehe. It escapes me, though, how I can fix a radio but the best I can do for broken glasses is tape. I'll have to go into town sometime this weekend and see if I can find new frames that'll match the glass. A whole new set of perscription glasses certainly isn't what my budget needs right now.

I considered asking someone to tramsmute them back together for me but they'll hold out all right for the rest of the week. I don't want to bother anyone with such a silly request.

That herbal tea really is better than coffee on nights like this when I can't sleep. Hmm. I don't believe I have any sort of sleeping disorder since this doesn't happen too terribly often but it's enough to be annoying.

On a much more random note: I'm considering getting a fish. As a pet, I mean. We aren't allowed to have dogs or cats in the dorms but I don't think a fish would be much of a problem. It's not as though they make any noise or messes. I'll confirm it with First Lieutenant Hawkeye or Colonel Mustang tomorrow just to be sure.

That's...really all I can think to put in right now so I'll wrap this up, finish my tea and try to get back to bed. Heh. I won't make it through the day if I don't get any sleep. A few hours should keep me from being TOO exhausted, though.

I'm afraid there hasn't been much going on since Alphonse came by and thus I've let myself neglect my journal again. It's horrible how I keep doing that. I really have to stop.

Anyway! I went out to get some things on Wednesday for Alphonse but when I came home he was gone. Admittedly, I was a little worried at first but I found his letter in the kitchen and I have to say that I'm very happy. I know things probably aren't perfect between those two but I'm pleased that they got to talk and work things out. That's what they really needed, to have some time alone and discuss what had happened. I knew they could do it!

Heh, and in much less exciting news, I think I need to check some wiring in the generator at work today. The lights have been acting horribly strange for several days so I'll have to see if it's anything I can fix.

[In reference to this post.]

I know I haven't updated in a while but this situation certainly deserves some focus. I was on my way home and spotted Alphonse. That wasn't terribly surprising on it's own but he sounded so... lost and empty. I wasn't used to that. Admittedly, I haven't known Alphonse that long and I certainly don't know him as well as some of the others, but people in general should never sound that alone. Maybe I'm just a sap or a pushover but I couldn't leave him wandering the streets in that state. Nobody should have to go through something like that by themselves.

So I invited -- well, more like urged -- him upstairs to my dorm and we talked for a while. I was extremely worried about him when we first started talking. Alphonse is a good person and has already been through more than his fair share of suffering. He and Edward both, at that.

I'm not so sure he wanted to come up and talk at first but I'm glad he trusted me enough to open up in the end. I know I can't fix all of his problems and I don't try anything of the sort but it's nice to think I helped at least a little.

I do like my co-workers but I don't spend any time with them away from the office. I associate with people, of course, but Alphonse is the only person I think I can safely assume to be friends with. And, friends or not, I made a promise that I DO intend on keeping, hence the lack of detail to my entry.

I really hope that Alphonse and Edward can sort this out. They need each other and it would be horrible to see them distance themselves over something that seems so small in the face of everything else they've been through and strived for.

[[In reference to this post]]

Well, it took a little longer to make an appointment with the doctor than I'd planned but he did drop by yesterday afternoon after Alphonse had left -- whose visit was a pleasant surprise on its own. Now that I think about it, I believe he's the first person I've ever had over to the dorm for something not work related.

Anyway, it was nice to have company for a while. It took my mind off the aching for a bit and I was able to get to sleep for a few hours fairly well afterwards. I think the soup Alphonse brought with him jump started my appetite, as well. This is a very good thing considering the medicine I was given makes me horribly nauseas if I haven't eaten anything before I take it. But it has been working quite well, so I'll be back in work by Monday morning, I'm sure. I'm actually looking forward to getting back. Plus I'll probably have to check the radios and such again.

I hope dropping by doesn't get Alphonse into any sort of trouble, though. I'd hate for him to be reprimanded on my behalf. I enjoyed having him over; he was very nice to talk to. I've never had anyone that interested in my glasses, either. It was strangely pleasant getting to explain them. I'm still new with this city and this job and such so it's nice to have something I could explain to someone else instead of it being the other way around.

Heh, this is probably my earliest update in the day thanks to my alarm. Well.. not including the one around 3am, that is.

Anyway, I think I'm going to make a call to the doctor and see if he can drop by sometime today. I managed to find that thermometer before I came over here and I don't think 104 is quite a good thing. So, I suppose I'll be taking off again today.

I'll update again later if I can manage after the doctor visits. I think I'm just going to go back to bed right now.

[ mood | sick ]

Ahn, today certainly hasn't been a good day.

I feel horrible for neglecting my duties and taking today off, but I know I couldn't have functioned properly at work. I could barely get out of bed when I woke up, much less get into my uniform and keep an eye on the radios and such today. I've only been out of bed twice since this morning, not including writing this now. I would have preferred to stay in bed but I felt it was best to get this out of the way now.

If it had been any less hindering, I wouldn't have taken a sick day. I can't stand up without feeling dizzy and headachy, though. Every time I move my head decides to throb and even my shirt is irritating my skin. I suppose I should've known something was wrong after feeling so shivery last night but I figured it would pass over with some sleep. Instead, it seems to have spiked into a temperature. I don't really feel like trying to dig out the thermometer at the moment, though, so I'll just hope this clears up by tomorrow.

I'm starting to miss my appetite, as well. I was planning to try and make something to eat here but my cooking skills really aren't the best and I can't find any desire to actually eat. Ah.. my head is starting to hurt again, though, so I think I'll go back to bed. This will all probably be gone in the morning, so I'll try to go into work early to make up for my absence.

Oh dear!

Aaah, it seems I've forgotten a touch about this journal. I'll have to compensate for the absence by updating more often, I think. Especially since these are going to be used on our performance reviews.

Admittedly, there hasn't been anything of much importance going on lately. Work is fine, though I never did get around to asking Colonel Mustang about any place decent to leave the dorm for. Mess hall and work and such aside, of course. I have the radio I took from work figured inside and out, though. I'm working on getting clearer receptions from it now and it seems to be working pretty well.

It's a shame I had work. It was a lovely day today and it rained most of the weekend. I had to check on some equipment this morning to make sure the water didn't cause any problems. Everything was all right, though. Most of the equipment's been adapted to handle rain pretty well.

I visited the library for something other than research manuals several days ago and found a fiction-based book to read in my spare time. I've never done a lot of reading of things like this before but it's actually quite interesting and it certainly gives me something to do.

Aaaah, and the herbal tea is still holding up quite nicely. I should go by and get some more tomorrow since I seem to be running low.

Mmm.. had a surprisingly calm day!

There wasn't too much going on around the office but one of the automobiles was having problems so I got to go work on it. I think I've become attached to the things. They're so much more complex than the radios are! [And I did manage to get a spare to bring home and work with. The wiring structure is fascinating.] I honestly would have liked to mess around with the engine a little more but didn't get a chance to, unfortunately.

There are good points to always being called around to fix things. I'm starting to fear the impression I'm giving my co-workers, though. Heh. Maybe I should go out more often.. Hmm. But where in the world is there to go, anyway?

I'll try and ask Lieutenant Havoc about it tomorrow. I think I'll turn in for tonight, though.

Ah! And thank you again, Alphonse. I picked up some herbal tea this afternoon. It is quite relaxing. I think it'll make a nice substitute for the coffee when I don't have any serious caffeine cravings.

Oh dear... it's late.

Ah, hehe, I fell asleep earlier this afternoon while I was going through a few manuals. I probably shouldn't let myself do that anymore. It's three in the morning now and I have the strangest urge for coffee. Or sushi. I'm not the biggest fan of either, to be honest, but I'm sort of craving them now.

Again, really musn't fall asleep at six pm.

Well, there's nothing to be done about that for now. I'll look into at least getting coffee after I post this. I went in this morning despite it being a Saturday to check out all of the radios as planned. Everything seems to be in order again, so it didn't take long. It's almost a shame there wasn't anything to be fixed. It certainly would have given me something to do and an excuse to fiddle with the state radios a bit.

They're quite a bit more advanced than the public versions. More wires, more functions, better reception, etc. etc. I think I'll look into getting a spare for myself. After all, getting a feel for them and a better understanding for how they work would be beneficial to everyone!

Mm, anyway, it is three o'clock in the morning so I guess I'll find something to eat and try and get back to sleep. I can always pick up where I left off in those manuals if I have trouble doing so!

Well, since it is part of our performance reviews, I suppose now is as good a time as ever to get this journal kicked off, ne? I think the journals are actually a rather good idea. They're a nice place to put down a lot of the things that wouldn't be mentioned in the reviews.

I spent several hours going over the site and getting used to the coding and such. I quite like the way the journal design itself turned out without the paid-account benifits.

Work was all right today yesterday for a Friday, but it is nice to be able to relax some now. Lieutenant Havoc ran out of cigarettes today and disappeared for an hour. I don't think he was really supposed to, but nobody's reprimanded him for it yet, as far as I'm aware. I didn't realize it could take that long to go and get more, though.

There was an unusual amount of static being picked up by one of the radios around noon. It seemed to be on the fritz for a while but it turned out it was only one of the wires that had come loose. I'm going to go in and have a look at all of the radios tomorrow morning, just to be sure they're all okay, too.

I have to admit, though... after taking a peek at a few of the other journals that have already been set up, I'm a bit worried about a comment in Colonel Mustang's. I really don't need a date to be set up for me! Ah.. thank you very much for the thought, though, Colonel!

Ah, I didn't realize it was so late already..! I'm going to turn in for the night now.
