One more month of this roommate.  One more month of my books being taken out of my room and the apartment without permission, of stains appearing on the carpet and my things, of money being owed to me, and her boyfriend getting all the hot showers he wants at our place. 

Here's to hoping I'll make it.

Mah FridayCollapse )

But at night it's a different world
Go out and find a girl
Come on, come on and dance all night
Despite the heat it'll be alright

And babe, don't you know it's a pity
The days can't be like the nights
In the summer in the city

current mood: relaxed

It is just so satisfying to successfully key out a plant.

I went for a bike ride with my sister today.  I got to see her laugh with the thrill of the downhill :)

10:20 am - In case you were wondering..
How am I?  In two words, feeling great.  Since early March, these have been interesting times.  I've realized several things about myself, including nervous habits and destructive tendencies.  Right now I feel like everything has come into focus, but it wasn't easy getting here.  At one point, I had lost faith in the universe; I didn't understand why I was where I was.  I feel like the whole time, however, I remained honest, and that allowed me to be open.  

Where I am now is good.  I am calm, peaceful, trusting my resources.  I've come closer to a lot of people, and I feel more in tune with my fellow human.  I have some opportunities this summer to learn and ease myself into a professional setting.  I feel more kind, less judging, more successful, happier.  I love my family and I'm learning to love myself.  I am exercising, taking care of myself.  I feel alive!  I think I can feel kindness being reflected back to me.  

I'm interested in what there is to hear. 

I am sorry, in a way, in the way you regret how some events unfold.  It didn't always feel perfect, but the plan is perfect anyway.  Out of bliss came loss, but also growth.  I hope he feels the same. 

I will not be old and wish for this someday.  This is good, but it will be good then, too. 

I love you all.

current mood: peaceful

1:44 pm - Post for the hell of it
It's been a week of moderate work, but realizing how much work is left in the quarter.  I had a doozey of a cell bio test on Wednesday.  I did as well as I could have, I think.  I got it back, and they forgot to grade a question, so I'm going to have to turn it back in for a regrade.  A couple hours after that on the same day, I had a calc exam.  Then due Friday I had a lab report and lab protocol, which both got turned in.  I also got my remote sensing lab turned in, so I'm all caught up! 

It's a nice feeling to be caught up on Friday... The weekend seems to have more opportunity in it! 

I feel pretty good right now.. I'll get to see Daniel at critical mass, then chill out tonight.  If nothing comes up later, I think I'll start learning how to use my digital recorder I got for Christmas... Also, I just might enjoy some beer!  woohoo!

current mood: accomplished

I've been so busy lately.  I feel like my day is already planned from start to finish by the time I wake up, if I've even been to bed at all.

current mood: stressed

RIP cell phone.  I lost it somewhere between work and home yesterday.

Email me your phone number if you think I should have it.

I have a lot of organization to do.  I could make that my goal this year.

I was a mess again last night.  I was so nervous!

I get the feeling my body is giving me payback for the hell I put it through the past several days.  Copious amounts of meat and booze and sparse amounts of exercise.  I'm sorry, chair.

But hey, Thanksgiving! 

current mood: patient

Went to a party
I danced all night
I drank 16 beers
And I started up a fight

But now I am jaded
You're out of luck
I'm rolling down the stairs
Too drunk to fuck

current mood: sore

I saw on the news last night where gun sales are up 400 to 500%.  I feel like this winter is going to be a perfect storm...

Of what we shall see!

He said I could quit school, get a job at Tuckers, then move into the warehouse with him, and we could drink boxed wine and sleep until five every day.  Believe me, it was tempting.

current mood: schooled

4:40 pm - So many posts!
I think John Campbell is great.

That's just a teeny, tiny portion of his stuff, and it might not be very funny to you, but I thought it was funny in context, because I read the story from the beginning.

Also, I'm having trouble concentrating on my projects, which explains the previous sentence.

Man this sucks.

current mood: my cat is cute

12:06 pm - Balancing the books
So I just did a survey on Duke Energy's website, and out of a $60 energy bill (of which I pay half), $29 of that is just spent on hot water. 

I take two showers a week, as a way to conserve water and energy.  (Also, I'm a dirty hippie?)  I feel taking more than that is unnecessary, and I try to only take what I need.  So, I pay roughly $15 a month for about eight showers.  I think that's ridiculous, considering my roommate takes 1-2 showers every day; multiplied by 30 days, she pays only $15 for 30-35 showers a month. 


But I mean, there really isn't a way to bring this up.  And I'm not going to start taking more showers just to even things out. 

I guess my only option is just to eat her potato chips the next time she goes shopping.
