Why is my watch blank? Hello? God, if you're listening, I'd like to report an anomaly. The reality surrounding my watch appears to have glitched out, and.... what's that? Battery? 

Wait, I need to charge this watch?

So when my watch band broke due to the wear and tear of rubber, I was mortified. I have had that watch for at least 4 years, and almost never have taken it off (not gross, I shower, and ensure water gets under there)... The 5 alarms, chronological and countdown timers, and its ability to keep track of important dates and parties and events has mesmerized my consciousness ever since I learned about each of its features.
(are you kidding? It even has a timer to tell me when to drink water?? Who would even use that?? That's awesome...)

Now, since my sister Ashley (younger older) had once worked at a coffee shop, that became a different coffee shop, and that she doesn't work there anymore, the husband of the owners of that second coffee shop is a watchmaker. He knows people, who know people, who really REALLY like watches. He's finding me a replacement watchband, which is just fantastic. 

BUT! Until he does, I needed a watch for my daily watchy-needs. And as such, I borrowed my dad's watch. ( he has around 3, so it's okay.... for now). I have NO clue what this watch does, but I do know that there's a little satellite dish symbol that says "Receiving" and then the time changes by about a minute or two. I 'think' that means it's receiving from the atomic clock in California, and that my time is accurate. What I dislike about this feature is that I need my watch to be INaccurate but accurate to the school's bell schedule. *sigh* I guess perfect time is okay too....

But that's besides the point. This watch, as I have just found out, is solar powered. As I don't get out that often (go figure) its little battery has been getting more and more drained, until it just died. Now I'm letting it sit in front of the sun.

Other than the matters of my watch, I'm doing well. Sorry for dragging on there, I felt like talking for the first time in........months?
