A quick note

(By the way, I'm typing this on my phone and I can only see two lines at a time, so I apologize in advance for any errors. XD)

Okay, so I put this on tumblr already, so some of you already know this- I have no internet at home until further notice. As it's January, it's too damn cold to be walking to the library all the time, and my bus pass for school apparently doesn't work during winter break, so I have to pay for the bus to go somewhere with Wi-Fi. That won't be happening very much, for obvious reasons. I technically have my phone, but I can only ask it to do so much on a 3g network. So. The basic gist of this is that I will only be around sporadically for a while. The December meme is on hold until further notice, though I may poke at it whenever I do go somewhere for internet, but I won't promise anything. If anybody needs me, I'm still poking at tumblr, Facebook, and my email regularly through phone apps. Additionally, I'll sometimes be around on my alternate aim name, which I mainly use for mobile aim because reasons. The name for that one is letsgofive. If that name is on, I'm definitely around.

On the upside, this is a perfect excuse to work on some reading/writing/gaming/watching things I've been meaning to do? :P

31 Day Meme, Day 6

6. Your 5 senses right now
Uh, the same five I always have? This is a dumb question.

As far as non-meme stuff, here we go:
☁ My certificate of residence for school has been acquired. I had to spend more time dealing with my mother than I would've liked in order to accomplish this, but whatever, it's done. Now I can pay my bill for school. The plan is to deal with that tomorrow.

☁ Saw an apartment Saturday. Good location, big room, roommates are not super neat freaks, gay friendly, super cute kitten (who spent most of the time pretending that I was a good climbing tree. Good thing I wore jeans. XD The guy was like, "wow, she really likes you already.") It's at the top of my "I can afford this" range, but I'm not sure I'm going to get much better because rent is freaking ridiculous here. He's still showing the apartment, so we'll see what happens. I'm not going to hold my breath. I'm going to text him tomorrow and see what's going on. In the meantime... I should probably make some more phone calls tomorrow too. Ungh. I want to do that about as much as I want a hole in my head. I fucking hate calling people, and of course most of these are like "phone calls only!" YOU GUYS SUCK.

☁ Need to go to old work and talk to Dave about saving boxes for me. Even if I wasn't planning on moving, I would probably still do this, because I'm at a point where I just feel like I'm moving things back and forth to and from the same places in my room, and getting stuff put away in boxes would at least let me put things away neatly in an orderly way instead of haphazardly thrown everywhere.

TL;DR- Family bullshit )

☁ Oh yeah, and did I mention that classes start again on the 26th and I'm both freaked the hell out about it and can't wait to go back? Need to get sleep back in order. It was better and then it wasn't, sooooo. <_< It's not nowhere near as bad as it was at one point, but still not terribly good.

☁ So basically, long story short, I'm super stressed/anxious about EVERYTHING and trying to keep up with my daily cleaning sessions and mostly failing, so. On the upside, it does look considerably better just from what I did today?

☁ I've also been working on a random fic bit I found in my bunny folder. I... don't even know how this happened. But yay writing?

NaBloPoMo Day 9

-There was no internet at home when I left this morning, so I'm going to do this post now, since I don't know what's going to be happening with that. I'm not sure what's going to happen over the weekend, either. I may have to make a couple of voice posts. Do you think those will count for NaBloPoMo? I mean, it's still posting, right? Just me talking at you nonsensically in voice form instead of written form. XD That's only on LJ though, so I dunno. I may have to update via my cell phone browser, which could get tricky. We'll see, I guess. (Basically, what I'm telling you guys is that if you don't see any posts on DW over the weekend, go check out LJ for voice posts, and I'll backdate posts here to link over later. XD)

-Need to go over and get my second reimbursement check, too, so I can put that in my savings account tomorrow. Saturday's really the only day I can go to the bank, sooooooooo yeah. I'll do that after I'm done with this. ^_^

-Today hasn't been so bad though, with the exception this morning. I woke up at 6:38- which is the EXACT time my bus shows up at the stop. -_- Ugh. So needless to say, I missed Math this morning. I was like, seriously, self? It couldn't have been 6:20? I could've made that! Funny though, how I have perfect attendance in everything BUT this math class. This is the only time I've missed class because I overslept, though. First time, I was just dragging and made it to the stop like two minutes late. Second time, I couldn't find my keys- and of course, without my keys, I'm not getting in the house, so I had to have those. And now today. I guess the good thing with it being Friday is that I can make her office hours on Monday- which is the only weekday I don't have math- and catch up on what I missed. So I won't have to sit there at the next class going, "buh?"

-Uhhhhh what else.... I'm coming up with a big goose egg here. Not a whole lot happening, besides school work, pride alliance stuff (which is mostly just an exercise in frustration, tbh- I can't STAND any of my fellow executive committee members XDDD), and hating Persona 4 with a passion. ...okay, okay, plot stuff is fine, and even social link stuff is fine. It's the dungeons. I'm always dying, and it's just... ugh. I'm not even really under-leveled- I checked. I just don't understand why this game is kicking my ass so badly. Ironically, the bosses are fine, it's the regular shadows that are making me want to throw things. Go figure.

Okay, now that I've had this sitting here for an hour and a half while I'm waiting for my Sociology class (it's still about an hour from now), I should probably go get that check and maybe try and snag a corner in the library so I can write for a while. Maybe. We'll see how that goes. My energy levels are still not quite what they should be, plus it's Friday, so I'm like XP at this point. Okay, okay, going. I'll see you guys in some form or other this weekend. \o

NaBloPoMo Day 7

Still exhausted, but I've somehow managed to make it through the day, so there's that. Wasn't sure I would, at certain points.

Can I just tell you how relieved I am that we managed to dodge the Romney bullet? Seriously, I was getting nervous last night when I went to bed. It's still... it worries me that it was so close, but. On the upside, several states passed gay marriage, and one stopped a ban on gay marriage, so there were definite victories. I believe Washington also just legalized pot, for anyone that's interested. XD

I got on the scale for the first time in a while- never a good sign- I just about cried. I've gained about 25 pounds from my lowest weight, and 15 of that has been since July. *sob* I really, really just need to stop eating or something. Or at the very least, stop eating the massive amount of CRAP I have been lately. Just. Guh.

Speaking of food, though, I forgot to tell you guys that I tried chicken tacos for the first time recently. WHERE HAVE THESE BEEN ALL MY LIFE? Seriously, seriously good. I've never been a big taco fan because when I was a kid, tacos consisted of a hard shell, lettuce, tomato, and cheese. Not bad, but needless to say, it wasn't my favorite thing. But these are awesome. Might have to put a little ranch dressing on it though, just to cool it down a little. It's kind of hot. ^_^;

Aaaaand I just found out that my mother apparently "forgot" to pay the cable bill, so there's no internet at home. I have the rough draft of a research paper due tomorrow. Guess who can't finish her paper? I am so pissed right now there aren't even words. I just. FUCKING REALLY?

I may or may not go to the library later to deal with that- I don't know, it's fucking COLD today- but just in case, I should probably post this now, since I have to leave in a few minutes for the bus. ARGH.

EDIT: Okay, so I guess I have internet for now, but the cable is out, I dunno. There's also an electric bill that may or may not have been paid. I have absolutely no idea what's going on and why bills aren't getting paid, but it needs to STOP. There's no excuse for this. Kelly and I between us pay the rent, plus even when I was working, my mother made more than Kelly and I -combined-. She should have the money. So why isn't stuff getting paid? Apparently she's almost $400 behind on the Time Warner and about $200 behind on the electric, according to Kelly, which means this has been going on for about 2-3 months. What the ever loving hell. I can't even. Furious doesn't even BEGIN to cover it. I have classes that are at least partially online. I can't not have internet. It's now November, I can't not have heat- and the heat is electric. I can't and won't play this game. She needs to grow the hell up and pay her damn bills. GRRRRRRR.

Drama: So my mother just dumped on me that national grid is coming in the morning to do "upgrades" on the light bulbs and faucet fixtures and things in the apartment. So, naturally, I'm expected to clean up her hoarder tendencies in a few hours. RAWR. I fucking hate how this keeps happening. It's not that anything is really terrible, except the dining room area which is just a giant pile of my mother's crap... and hopefully they don't open the fridge, because that's seriously an all day project. It's the stress, it's going to be the lack of sleep (because I don't want to be here when this goes down, so I have to be out of here by 9am- that's after spending who knows how long cleaning up), it's the fact that she's fucking doing this to me AGAIN. And then she's going, "we need to figure out something with the cat." Er... you realize they're going to be in EVERY ROOM, right? And on NO notice? Good luck with that.

I'm so ANGRY and STRESSED. I feel sick.

ETA: Now she's trying to shove all the cat's stuff in my room. She's insistent that they won't go in there. I'm like, what the hell are you even ON? Even if they're only doing the light fixtures that came with the apartment, there is a ceiling light in the god damned closet. She's still insistent. Well, fine. If they go in there, then it's not my problem.

☁ Update: Everything's fine, never even lost power, though the lights at work blinked ominously all night. Could've been a whole lot worse. Looks like the power lines might not hold. LOTS of flooding- seriously, there are RIDICULOUS pictures on facebook right now. Where I am seems relatively alright (I'm right between major flooded areas, I think), considering, though we'll be able to see the damage better tomorrow. Also I do know someone who lost everything, which totally blows, though at least she, her partner, and their animals are fine. That's the important thing.

☁ Also, the general stupidity of people never ceases to amaze me. They didn't want ANYBODY going out unless it was an emergency, because of mass flooding, yeah? (Of course, "work" is an emergency, according to the company. Pffft.) ALL DAY I rang out people for candy. No lie. Candy, toys, random stupid shit. I'm like... REALLY? If I didn't have to be out, I would've been at home with a book. If it was a prescription that you ZOMG HAD TO HAVE TODAY, then yeah, I can see that, but otherwise? Lack of Snickers doesn't really constitute as an emergency.  What the fuck. GO HOME. And then they would complain about how all these roads were closed. *headdesk* Gee, maybe that's a hint that you should GO THE FUCK HOME? We're kinda in a hurricane right now. WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?

☁ I got called old today. ;~; A (note: middle aged, aka old enough to know better) guy said to me, "You've been here a long time. You're a *insert my company name* senior." *wail* I'm 27 years old, you bastard! Though Henry, the other guy that was working tonight, at least waited until the guy left before he started laughing. I think we both went *JAW DROP* at the time when the guy said it. XDDD He's lucky I was in too much shock to say anything in the moment, because I might've hit him or started crying or something equally dramatic. It's like, dude, I know that's not what you MEANT, but that's what it SOUNDED like. Think about what you're saying before you call a 20-something a senior citizen, alright? >_< It's bad enough that society tells you that once a woman hits 30, her life is OVER (that goes double if you're gay). No need to add to that. Kthnxbye.

☁ My mother still doesn't understand the concept that if we are both friends with a person on Facebook, I see said person's feeds just like she does. Like she will read to me all this shit my aunt puts up, word for word, and I'm like... I know. I saw it already. I really didn't need to hear it twice with an extra dose of you making it sound like I don't know anything. It drives me crazy. CUT IT OUT.

☁ Aaaaaaaand there was a house centipede in the tub when I took a shower this afternoon. :(

- Got my hair cut again after putting it off for a few weeks. It's the kind of short I've been trying to get and failing at (seriously, she used clippers on a lot of it XD) My mother's response to the haircut? "Why don't you just shave it off? You might as well at this point." ............................
*growl* Fuck you. Seriously. NOBODY ASKED YOUR GOD DAMN OPINION.

- Scored jeans at LB for 40% off, they're not flare or boot-cut, AND they're a size lower than what I got last time I bought jeans. Woo! I have no idea how I managed that, being that I haven't lost any weight and I'm not working out, so it's not like I've lost fat and gained muscle all of a sudden. Oh well. I'm certainly not going to complain. :D

- Also found volume 12 of Junjou Romantica, which I've been looking for. So! That one's totally caught up. \o/

- Level grinding in FFIII. What makes it suck even more than usual is that I'm kind of stuck where I am right now, due to story events, so I'm basically having to run up and down these stairs ad nauseum. UGH. Hopefully I can stop after one more level up and not get totally slaughtered by the boss.

- Apparently about a month ago, Konami put up a post on their Facebook group "What Konami game franchise would you love to see brought back?" I didn't read all 924 comments, but seriously? I did go 100 comments back, and all but TWO were along the lines of "SUIKODEN VI, DAMMIT!" *dies laughing* You think maybe they got the hint? Someone commented "Looks like Suikoden fans have made their own army now. :D" *dies more*

- Awesome video of Tom Felton on Conan- there was Harry/Draco discussion, and pictures! So funny, and he was so freaking cute when he literally turned PINK when they showed a couple of Harry/Draco photo manips. On the other hand, it did feel a bit strange having fandom acknowledged out of the blue like that, and on such a popular platform. And to think the actors actually read fanfiction and see fanart? Kind of like... er... what? O_o I don't know. It's a little too close to home for comfort. A great clip and interview, but just... made me feel a little like a bug under a microscope lens, if that makes any sense.

Yep, still cleaning like a crazy person. I've barely been on the lappy at all. Hopefully by this time next week, we should be back to normal and I'll actually be able to catch up with everyone. I feel like I'm missing out. D:

Basically, I'm so exhausted and stressed out it's not even funny. )

☁ In other news, Pride was fun. Well. Certain parts were fun. Saturday morning, the 5k, was not so much- it was torrential downpouring. Ugh. Needless to say, by the time I got there, I was totally soaked. Mary and I screwed up by accident and only ended up walking half of the 5k. We got confused. ^_^;;; Which ended up okay, because again, I was wet and unhappy and my left foot hurt like hell from where one of my toes kept rubbing up against the wet socks and shoes. Yeah. The day got better, though, as did the weekend. We missed the parade because Mary takes FOREVER getting ready, but the festival was fun. And we drank SO MUCH the whole weekend, I swear. It was fun, but guh. Won't be doing that a lot, let me tell you. For a lot of reasons. I do hope we start hanging out more, though, because it's kind of ridiculous that we haven't. Apparently it's our own hangups that caused that. She thought that I would think she was way too crazy, and I thought that she would think I was too boring. ^_^;;;

☁ The drinking, though, seriously... I'm glad I almost never do that. I gained FOUR POUNDS over the weekend, no lie. I just about cried on Monday when I saw that. It's coming back down though, not through any effort on my part. Cleaning burns calories. Also, stress does one of two things to me, food-wise. It either makes me eat everything or I don't want to eat anything. This time I seem to be more on the latter end- I just realized that all I've had to eat today is a lean pocket and a few pieces of bread. Whoops. I guess I just feel like I don't have time to eat on top of that, so that doesn't help. It's better when I work- then I'll eat a minimum of twice in the day. All the more reason to be glad for next week when this whole mess is over and everything goes back to normal.

☁ Also, someone from a school I went to for about three months friended me on Facebook. I think I vaguely remember her, but man. Weird.

That being said, my laundry is now done and I should probably make some attempt at sleeping. That hasn't been going terribly well either. I may or may not post again before the inspection. Either way, I'm sure I'll see you guys at some point next week.

Fair warning- I'm probably going to be pretty scarce the next couple of weeks. CLEAN ALL THE THINGS- Cut for FLAIL! )

☁ I totally didn't keep up with the online writing class I'd signed up for, but I saved everything for later and took the final exam (multiple choice on the material- I've always rocked at those :D), since that's due Friday. Got 100% and therefore earned my certificate for it since that's the only thing that counts. Yay. And now I know that online doesn't work for me. ^_^;;; Sad, but at least now there's not a question.

☁ New bras~ I'm actually clearly a little bit over a DDD, but not enough to move up to an F. It's nothing that a little maneuvering can't fix, so I'm not going to worry about it. Buy one get one half, so I got a bluish grey one and a brown one. So at least I have a couple of basic bras that fit. (It's so nice to consider something besides nude and black "basic"!) It's funny, changing back into one of the old ones after trying on the new size really hammered home for me exactly how much it really doesn't fit. It was just all of a sudden "Holy crap, how have I been wearing these all this time?" Also, I actually look more proportional now. I mean, I still have large breasts- obviously- but at least now they match the rest of me better instead of the boobs being pretty much everything you see. If I end up being in this size for a while, I might think about getting one or two more nice ones. We'll see what happens. I'm not spending a ton of money just to change sizes again, you know?

☁ Randomly I'm missing Kingdom Hearts and wanting to play it again. Unfortunately (or fortunately, I can't decide which), my copy is still out on loan. Urgh. I'm also randomly wanting to watch Junjou Romantica again- this is actually doable, since I have it and it's only 24 episodes I think. Probably shouldn't though, I have enough new stuff to watch as it is.

☁ Sadly? This is typical of New York politics- a fucking circus. It's almost as if politicians here aren't happy unless they're making a god damn spectacle of themselves. And people wonder why NY is such a mess? JFC. That being said: yes, he's a jackass, but as long as it doesn't affect his work, I don't see a problem. His personal life is absolutely none of my business. Any indiscretions are between him and his wife, bottom line. (Though seriously, you would think he would've learned from Bill Clinton that it's better to just fess up. Just saying.)

☁ Okay, I need to try to get some sleep- I have a long day of work and then cleaning ahead of me. Oh yeah, and there's going to be some nasty storms too when I'm going into work. Yaaay. Something tells me that the next couple of weeks are going to SUCK.

verloren1983: (Default)
☁ Yes, I'm aware I screwed up the daily meme thing already. Whoops. I will maybe catch up on that later.

☁ Happy Mommy's Day to the moms on the flist. ♥ I will possibly be baking something for my own mother in a bit. Possibly. If I feel like it. XD

☁ I... am apparently not a ninja. Which is kind of a disappointment. Just saying. ^_^;;;

☁ New version of Firefox. UGH. Hate it, hate it, hate it. Also LJLogin doesn't work, and that's a HUGE downside. LJLogin is the only reason I haven't packed up and moved over to Chrome, after all. Well. That and all my bookmarks are in FF. The only good thing I have to say about it is that it's definitely a lot faster.

☁ Just found out yesterday that you can make a website with Google. Holy shit, I'm in love. Keep in mind that my previous website-making experience was with Geocities, which was a gigantic pain in the ass. I can COPY/PASTE in this. I can not even explain to you how big of a deal this is to me. I DON'T HAVE TO RETYPE EVERYTHING. And there are actual FONT CHOICES beyond Times, Arial, and Comic Sans. And there are some really pretty backgrounds. I actually had a hard time choosing. I basically copy/pasted my masterlist for now, so everything links back to LJ, but go check it out if you want.

Cut for rantyness. XD )

☁ And so to not end this on a totally depressing note, I think I'm going to try to make these. Oh, and Mike's (as in, Mike's Hard Lemonade) apparently makes a margarita now. There's the regular lime flavor, raspberry, and peach. I tried the peach and it's pretty yummy. Just. Yanno. FYI. :D

Edit: Tried the muffins- YUCK. I'm not even pawning them off on coworkers, straight into the garbage they go. Too bad.

-Work has been eating me alive, so I haven't really had the energy to write. Last week was HELL- this week seems to be a -little- better, at least, I'm just hoping it continues that way. Last week I ended up putting in overtime. This week the drama is that we're apparently not getting shipments from the outlab that we're supposed to- but that outlab is telling the customers that we have the orders when we don't. And it's not just one day's shipment, this is three different customers with three different orders on three different days. Different WEEKS, even. Isn't that fun, they're starting on the Christmas bullshit early. JOY.

-The holiday card post should be up soon, I'm just... trying to figure out what the hell I'm doing with that. I may have to just give up on creativity this time around and just send cards. :(

-Still haven't sent that message back, still procrastinating. Urgh. It's not like I don't know WHY I'm procrastinating... I'm afraid. Point blank. She's probably lost interest by now, meh.

-I read an article today about how a breast cancer survivor who'd had a mastectomy was forced to show the TSA person her prosthetic. Seriously, TSA? That's DISGUSTING. There's stories of them messing with medical equipment, too. This on top of the new screenings... yeah, suddenly I'm glad I rarely fly. Jeez. If the choice comes down to either getting molested or having an x-ray picture taken of me that shows WAY too much detail for comfort... I honestly don't know what I'd say, aside from "O_O MEEP!" It's absolutely humiliating. And while I've never had a problem with Obama before, I take issue with him going "Yeah, it's necessary, deal with it." When he doesn't have to. He'd probably feel differently if he had to watch his wife or one of his daughters put through that, hmm?

I don't know what the answer is here, but this is definitely going too far. This is humiliating people on the million to one chance that they have a bomb in their underwear or something. We've given up entirely too many freedoms already, this is just... the icing on the cake, really. I shouldn't have to be forced to let a stranger get to third base just to get on a fucking plane. The new system is BEGGING for abuse, and it's already happening and it hasn't even been a full month yet I don't think. There's a line between being reasonably cautious and being unreasonably paranoid, and I don't think there's any question now that they're well over the line. Fear is taking over now. This isn't good.

-My mother has apparently decided that she's not talking to me, which is pretty much the most hysterical thing ever, because it means that she thinks that this show of extreme immaturity is actually some kind of punishment for whatever horrible offense I've supposedly committed this time. She doesn't get that this is what I -want-. I want her to leave me the hell alone. But whatever, I'll take the amusement while she's offering it. Probably won't last long.

-Messed up with SW. Again. Never actually responded to the post like I was supposed to, and then I've been completely and utterly inactive. Meh. I know this is probably going to sound horrible, but with work being what it's been lately, and the holidays coming up so it's going to be all that much worse... I can't really bring myself to care all that much at the moment. I'm too freaking exhausted to care. So it's probably a good thing. Maybe I'll think about it again after the holidays, but as I said before, I also have to consider that this will be twice now that I've left, and apping the same character three times at the SAME GAME is a little ridiculous. :/

-I've been playing a lot of Sims 3 the last couple of days. I had the Sim lifespan set pretty short, and I realized quite unpleasantly that this is nowhere near enough time to do everything I would like to do... and this is just with Sim!Ver, that's not even including the actual, yanno, story kinds of things in my head. So I've set aging off for now. I at least want to get Ver's lifetime aspiration done with- she's an Investigator, and she needs to solve 35 cases. I think I'm on... 21 or 22? Case stuff isn't difficult, it's really just time consuming. A lot of running around. Most of it is kind of dumb, so I honestly don't think I'll be doing that particular career path again. I mean, okay, most jobs have you staring at a building while your Sim is at work, but still. A lot of the cases are like... stolen garden gnomes and stuff, and Ver is a level 9 investigator. Seriously. I WISH I WAS KIDDING. I want to play with the travel things more, too. At least get a level 1 Visa, dammit. XD We'll see, though, I'm not using the money cheat like I normally do (and that's really the only cheat I use, unless I need something specific). Need to move her out of the current house, though, first. The house she's in is more like a closet. XD Aaaaaaaand now that I've bored everyone to tears with Sims crap... I should probably get going, it's after 6am, and there's work later. *sighs forever*

Ooookay, it's been a while since I wrote last. Yes, I'm still alive. I'm just... easily distracted by shiny, as you should all know by now. XDDD

1. It's SPRING! *cheers* It gives me the urge to open windows and do some cleaning, but I most likely won't. Well. Definitely not today, anyway, no time. ^_^;;; Maybe Tuesday?

2. This cold just does not want to go away. GAH. It's not anything major, just a sore throat, but it's annoying and makes me not feel my best. GO AWAY, DAMN YOU!

3. I have yet to start either of the fandom challenges I signed up for. *headdesk* Fail.

4. Suikoden has eaten my brain. More fail. ^_^;;;

5. I think I need to revisit Hikaru no Go canon. My characterizations lately are feeling....  I don't know. Completely not right. Maybe it's just me though, who knows.

6. I thought I had a lot to say, but I'm not thinking of any of it now. Meh. Though my mother just came in here bitching about how I need to do this and that before work, when I really don't have time to deal with one of them. You'd think she'd be able to figure that out, since I have to leave in about... 50 minutes? >_<

In any event, I've got to go get ready for work. Fun stuff!

1. SO not ready to go back to work today. Mentally, physically. Just..... ugh. Still don't feel well, which isn't helping matters any. I'm... really wishing I hadn't let Scott guilt trip me into working Tuesday. I really could've used the extra rest.

2. I'm seriously considering apping Elenor from Suikoden IV as either an Astronomy teacher or Caretaker. A ghost could be fun, but the only spot open is Gryffindor, and she's SO not that. .......someone please talk some sense into me. <_< The whole two of you I think that know Suikoden. XD

3. I have a new computer chair. \o/ And I found out why the old one had gotten so unstable- the metal plate underneath the seat, the one that holds the seat to the bottom? Cracked. Almost all the way. So it's good that I got this now, because I don't know if it would've lasted another week, and whoever was sitting on it at the time (probably me) could've hurt themselves

4. Also got the boxes and customs forms for shipping. Everything fits, yay! Just need bubble wrap. :P Though the bad part is that my mother has been nosing through the boxes and wants to know where I'm shipping and how much it's going to cost. It's none of your god damn business, go away! *flails* Of course I can't SAY that, unfortunately, and it doesn't help when Kelly tells her shit behind my back. -_-

Sometimes? I really want to run away.

1. I have no idea how my mother manages to unplug my ethernet cord from the router so god damn much, but I really wish she'd stop. It's been happening  a ridiculous amount lately. And it has to be something she's doing, because it's on HER end (the router is in her room) and it only happens when she's home and awake. GAH.

2. How the hell do I manage to never get anything done on my days off? *sigh* Fail, Ver, fail. I at least got my xbox in my room and set up, but I still need to finish cleaning out that corner so I can actually sit and play it. I got groceries, and laundry got done. That's all I did constructively the last two days. *headdesk*

3. Finished FLCL. To be honest, the only reason I didn't drop it was because it was only six episodes, so I figured I could at least finish it. Didn't like the art, had no idea what was going on through most of it, and overall it was really a waste of time. But now it's done and so I can move on. ^_^

Maybe Nabari now. I keep saying that and not doing it. Though in my defense, the last time I said it, I tried, but then episode 5 kept crashing my computer. I have a new one now that should be okay. XD

That's for later. Right now I've got to eat and get ready for work. Later~

1. The good news is that I've downloaded ep 18 of Tales of the Abyss. The bad news is that I can't play it. It makes my piece of shit computer crash. *sigh* Guess it's back to streaming, then.

2. I've decided that my new break-at-work project is going to be reading all these books that I've purchased but haven't gotten around to reading. This has three purposes: one, it gets them read; two, it ups the amount of reading I do, and that's definitely a good thing; three, if there's any I really don't like, I can GET RID OF THEM.

So first on the list is The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, which seems entertaining so far. I'm not that far into it, so we'll see. ^_^

3. Nice and optimistic: "Due to budget cuts, the light at the end of the tunnel is being turned off."

4. Finished watching the Prince of Tennis semi-finals. Doubles 1 ended up being disappointing- I wanted to see how that particular pair would make it work, but they cheated. I'll probably start watching the finals soon, I have all but the last episode. Which I can't seem to find subbed at the moment. Frustrating.

5. Internet's been really, really slow. Ugh. It's better today than it was last night though. Still. Might try to reset the router when mom leaves. I think she works this weekend? <_<

6. New uniforms coming at work. Lovely. And I hear that the sizing is fucked up, so basically everybody goes up a size. Because that's TOTALLY what I need. >_<

......and firefox keeps crashing. And mom's fucking with the router and keeps disconnecting me from the internet with no warning. Great. Apparently internet access is going to be spotty for a while. >_<

1. It's just one of those days where you want to curl up in bed and stay there. This... probably doesn't bode well for the rest of my night, since I can't do that. <_<

2. Mom is officially going to be working the evening shift starting tomorrow. *sigh*  Last night was supposed to be her last overnight, but she called in, predictably. Damn, I really don't know how they haven't fired her yet. This shift change thing... well, really sucks all around. I'm going to have to fight her over the bathroom before work since we have to go to work at the same time (though I think she'd be leaving before me, but still). I'm not going to be getting breaks from her really- when I'm home, she's home, except on our days off, which I think are out of sync. The one saving grace about all of this. Plus sometimes the router has issues and needs rebooting. The router is in her bedroom. Normally if it's when she's working I just go in her room and reset it, but if she's home, I'm out of luck until she decides to fix it. And sometimes that'll be a long time. -_-

I... don't know how this is going to work out, guys. I might end up killing her or something. XD

3. Oh, and I did end up signing up for [livejournal.com profile] fifthmus . Shoot me now. XD

I know this is a no brainer really, but for those few of you on my flist who are actually American- GO VOTE!

I had to be up bright and early to do it, since Mom was insisting that we HAD to go right when she got out of work at 7am. Ugh. But it's done and I don't have to worry about it anymore. Now I sit back and wait for the results to come in. Hey... either way we get rid of Bush, and that's a good thing.

Kelly killed me, though. We were just talking, and she's going, "Well, Obama's mother is an illegal alien from Afghanistan!" ................................er, what? She didn't seem to believe me that there was a lot of that shit going around but 99.9% of it wasn't true, including that. She was also convinced that if Obama's elected, he'll get assassinated. Possible, yes, but that's what Biden is there for. And should something happen to him, it's Nancy Pelosi. It's not like there's not a back up plan here. *headdesk* My sister, you guys... sometimes I really wonder about her.

Murphy's Law: As soon as you buy a shiny new box of cold medicine with a strong decongestant, your cold will shift so that you don't need it anymore, only you've used one dose so you can't take it back to the store.

UGH. On the upside, I can breathe. On the downside, I sound like SHIT, because my throat hurts like HELL. Also on the upside, this also means that chances are really good that this is a cold and not a dental issue, though I keep checking that area of my gumline neurotically anyway. XD

I still don't know what I'm going to do about this leave of absence form issue. *sigh* Absolutely no idea. T_T

1. Need to get my sleep schedule back on track- I ended up staying up past 6am with Akichan the other day and I've been messed up ever since. I didn't get to sleep until around 6:30 yesterday. >_< Luckily, because my mom decided that I'd slept too late and HAD to wake me up, I only got about 4 hours of sleep and about a 1 hour nap later. So I should start feeling fairly sleepy soon. Can't be sleeping until 3pm when I've got to work, now can I?

2. I'm SO glad to be going back to work, I can't even tell you. My mother is driving me up the wall. She was completely freaking PSYCHOTIC today. All kinds of fun.

3. Speaking of which, I'm going back a day early. I'm... not really going to get into it, but let's just say Kerry whined at me and he knew damn well I couldn't afford to turn down the extra hours. So I'm officially going back to work on Sunday. Thank fucking god. Can I go back, oh I don't know, now? XDDD Well, I guess it's only four more days that I have off (holy shit, how did that happen? XD). I suppose I'll live until then. Possibly.

*blinks* Huh. I don't know how the hell it's been six days since my last actual entry (the meme doesn't count). I haven't been extraordinarily busy, I just... haven't felt like it, I suppose.

Drama at work. There's always drama, of course, but at the moment it seems to be escalating. Customers sucking more than usual, hookups, people leaving, one of the shift supervisors being an absolute bastard... god, I hate August.

In other news, I apparently did something to my left foot. It started around Saturday or so. Whenever I put weight on the ball of that foot, I get a nice little shooting pain up my leg. It's a bit better now that I've stayed off of it as much as possible the last couple of days, but the pain isn't completely gone. We'll see what happens with that. Mom is trying to convince me that I have a stress fracture in my foot because I'm fat. *twitch* Bitch.

Also, my mom goes back to work on September 9th. Sooner than she was insisting, at least. *breathes*

God. Subrosa. I don't even want to talk about it. *cries*

I should go and get something to eat before this gets too much longer.

Well, SUCK. Last week's check was about 30 dollars short for some ungodly reason, in addition to the fact that the last time I put money on my phone, they charged me for it twice. Bastards. So I've got to go to the bank and make them take the charge off. *sigh* And, you know, I need to look at my check from last week and see why the hell I'm short so much money. Between the two, I lost over 50 bucks- which made KMart decline my bank card yesterday. Now THAT was fun. *sigh again* I'm glad that they don't let me overdraw at this bank, really, because that's just more trouble than it's worth, but at the same time... (*EDIT* I just double checked the bank statement online before printing it out to take it to the bank- the transaction numbers ARE different, so apparently it was MY fuck up, not Virgin's. GAH. Goes to show you how much money I'm sinking into this phone lately. >_<)

In other news, I got a mattress pad on clearance for about $23 yesterday, in the hopes that it'll improve the mattress situation at least a little (since, obviously with everything going on, it's going to be all that much longer before I can get a new mattress)... it's not a miracle cure or anything, which isn't what I was expecting anyway- but it's a bit better. Putting a thin pad between myself and the springs of the mattress = improvement. ^_^ I wish I hadn't had to spend so much money on it, but considering I'm going to end up spending a fortune on the mattress when I can do that, and it'll be a long time before that happens... a solid investment for the time being. ^_^

Issues. Just... issues. The kitchen sink wasn't draining last night, right? So mom's bailing it out so we can put some Drano or something in there, and Kelly and I are right there. Because, seriously, she's not going to be bothered to go dump the bucket in the bathroom on her own, we know this. So we're standing there waiting (I'm on the phone with Akichan, so it's not as boring as it sounds), and she snarls at us, "I DON'T NEED SUPERVISION!" Well, fine. I can take a hint, so I sit down in the living room. Apparently this was a mistake. A little bit later she goes, "Who the fuck are you yapping to? Get the fuck off the phone and help me!!!" Er.... what? *blinks* Not even ten minutes ago you yelled at me for trying to help you. Now you're yelling at me because I did what you said? My god. THEN she's bitching because the water doesn't really seem to be going anywhere, and she announces that she's going to bed. And by the way, I'm supposed to stay up all night and babysit the sink. Um... I DON'T THINK SO. *growls* So I start bailing out the damn sink myself, because I'm not staying up and doing it all night... and as soon as I start doing it, it magically starts going down. Imagine that! *shock* I got the damn thing drained before I went to bed... and the thing that killed me was that mom came out to check my progress or whatever when it wasn't completely drained yet, and then proceeded to wash her hands in the sink, filling it with more water. ................... There are no words.  The sink is apparently full again, so it's clearly not fixed, but I honestly don't give a damn at this point. She'd put half a ton of Drano in the sink before I started working on it, and my head STILL hurts from inhaling all that.

I finally have internet back as of about 10:30 tonight. I don't know what happened originally, but apparently my mother never bothered to plug my ethernet cord back into the router when she was done messing around with things. Ugh. But really, I shouldn't get into the subject of my mother right now, or I just might snap. Let's just say she's completely insane and be done with it, shall we?

So I'm working on catching up on the flist. And watching the two new episodes of Chi that are up. So cute~! <3 Though I guess two good things came out of me having no internet:

1. I found out that AIM works passably well on my phone. Still not great, and the bastards charge me texting rates still on each message, but it's there if/when I need it. Although it's important to note that it sucks battery out of my phone liek woah. Seriously... the phone was dying within 12 hours of having last recharged it, and that was with about two hours of mobile AIM. *sigh*
2. I finally finished Zombie Loan. I can't believe that's where they ended it. Grrrrrrrrr. It's very good and fun though a bit morbid in places. XD Still has the worst opening song ever (that I've heard at least), but the sad part is that it had started to grow on me by the last episode. Gah. XDDD

Work was... hellish. Another subject I'm really not in the mood to get into. Lucky for you guys. ^_^

...internet is being wonky and randomly disconnecting. Or it's AIM, take your pick. Could be either. XD

Wow. Just wow. If you want a WTF moment, go read this- and look at the picture attached while you're at it. If I was one of those kids graduating I probably would've been laughing my ass off.

I also just found out that a church I went to on occasion for activities when I was a kid burned down. They don't know what started the fire. *sigh* Also, a city bus caught fire across from my workplace while I was at work. AT MY STOP. *nervous twitch* Luckily no one was in it apparently... but still. *twitch* Makes me nervous.

1. It kills me. It's 4am and my mother goes, "Get soda out of the car!"


Er, what? Are you fucking nuts? It's 4am! *twitch* GAH.

2. Just found out a little while ago that George Carlin died on Sunday. It's too bad, really, the man was completely brilliant. Incredibly fucked up, but brilliant. I always wanted to see him live, because yeah, he's fucking George Carlin, and that would've been an amazing experience. It's sad to hear that he's gone. Our country needs more people like him. Goodbye, George. You were so funny and so right on, and you'll be missed.

3. I am officially peeling, despite the aloe I've been neurotically putting on my sunburns. Gah. Speaking of which, I went with the "my mom is an evil bitch" story for explaining the burn. It worked. ^_^;;;;;

4. Days off are good, but possibly not so good this time around. Scott's on vacation all this week, so Cheryl the Idiot is running the lab in the mornings while he's gone......... without me there at night to fix all her fuck ups, I'm a little scared as to what I'm going to come back to on Thursday. <_< Probably rightfully so. It amazes me that this woman is old enough to be my mother- and yet she can't figure out something as simple as SPELLING A CUSTOMER'S NAME RIGHT SO THEY CAN PICK UP THEIR FILM. If you're not sure how to spell it, ASK THEM. Honestly, it's not that difficult. >_<  Or like today, when she told me that this one digital order had up and disappeared, and it turned out that she'd already printed it and hadn't noticed. Or leaving me with a roll of film due in ten minutes that hasn't even been through the film processor yet (that in and of itself takes fifteen, plus printing takes anywhere from five to ten more minutes). *twitchtwitch* God, if I don't strangle her by the end of the week it'll be a miracle. It's like... you are twice my age, get your shit together!

Happy Mother's Day to the moms on my flist! <3

I don't know what Mom's doing when she's home, but she needs to stop it, because the ethernet cable for my computer keeps getting loose enough on her end that my internet doesn't work. -_- Which is a pain in the ass, let me tell you. And it's only when she's home, so I know it's something SHE'S doing. Guh.

My prepaid phone was fantastic when I wasn't really using it that much. I'd put $20 on it every three months just to keep it active and I'd be golden. Now, however... it's costing me a lot of freaking money. I don't even want to know how much, quite honestly. I haven't been keeping track. So... after my vacation, I'm probably going to end up getting a monthly plan. I can get 1300 minutes total (which should be plenty, I still don't talk on it THAT much) plus unlimited texting for about $50. It sounds like a lot, at least to me, but I'm positive I'll be saving money that way. Plus I don't need to switch carriers or get a new phone or anything. ^_^

Last night at work can be summed up in two words: complete hell. It was busier than fuck, we had no extra staff even though it was the freaking day before MOTHER'S DAY, people were being bitchy, the digital machines were being pissy, I had to mix chemicals when I never actually got trained on mixing chemicals (so the machine might've been contaminated this morning, who knows), I never got a break AND I got out almost an hour late... plus I got my period yesterday and was having hellish cramps, so was in a lot of pain all day and couldn't leave early. *sigh* And it's probably going to be the same thing all over again tonight minus the cramps. Shoot me?

Those bras I ordered came in. And... wow. The 'cute as I can get in my size' one is cute (<3), and two others I didn't bother trying on because I have that exact type of bra in a different color, but one? Wow. I like... have a waist. Sort of. The only bad part is that it makes my boobs go "Hey, look at ME!" And... you know, at my size, I most definitely don't need to be doing that. XD They garner enough attention without that. XDDD But. You know. WAIST. <3 And that bra will look amazing with this one top I have. It will be the closest I can get to being attractive. Like, ever. XD

I should probably start trying to pack in the next couple of days. Guh. That's probably number 3 in most hated parts about traveling, packing. Two is the actual travel part. One.. is leaving the place you traveled to.

Guh. It's 1:30 1:45 now. I need to get something to eat and hop in the shower. I don't wanna.

1. The good news is that I finished recording One Thing for [profile] ihikago. The bad news is that my throat was severely suffering for it afterward. Although... the recording doesn't sound bad. By the end I think you can tell my throat was hurting, but it certainly doesn't sound as bad as it felt. I suppose that's a good thing. It needs some SERIOUS editing- you guys really don't need to hear the silences between parts, and me repeating lines sometimes three or four times even, and the swearing when I screwed up yet again- but at least the recording part is done. Next and last in line is Ai's fic... which I'm not even going to think about attempting to do now. But see, that one's about as gen as you can get, so I don't feel that weird about recording when someone else is here and awake. The other two, with the smut? Yeah, not so much. At least I can do the editing of those using headphones and so I can finish those up whenever and it doesn't matter. ^_^;;;;;;;;

I was hoping to not have to use the extension I asked for, but, well.......... the fics are due today, and are not done. -_-

Oh! Just because I fail, that doesn't mean that other people do: Aja recorded Syuusuke no Go, and it's here, and brilliant, and oh so cute. My comment may be a little incoherent, actually, but I'm a little afraid to re-read it now. XD In my defense it was 2am? XDDD

2. Guh, Norton's is being a bitch. >_< STOP THAT!

4. Mom is talking about getting a new car again. And how she needs a shitload of money by the end of May. Wha-- I told her my plan was to give her the stimulus money, and you know what I got? "I can't wait that long." ... You know what? I can't afford to give you my tax return money, either. She's like, 'my inspection runs out at the end of May!' That happens to come at a really, really bad time, because my trip is in May. Which I've already asked for the time off for. So... no dice. What kills me is, it sounds like she's planning on getting a NEW car. Um... no? I'm not giving up my trip so you can buy a fucking new car. And she acts like it's her way or the highway, but here's the thing: she can't afford to kick me out. So. What the hell is she going to do to me, exactly? I'll give her the stimulus money when I get it in August but that's it, and I can't afford to do anything else. The only reason she's even getting that is because it's extra. It still kind of pisses me off because, yo, $600 is a lot of money- but it's still extra, and I won't miss it if I don't have it. I can't BELIEVE she's expecting me to give her my income tax refund. I had plans for that money before she even got into her accident. So bite me. I'm... really going to dig my heels in about this one. I don't care about the Stimulus money, she can have that. She's not getting my taxes. Period. This is... going to cause major problems, I know it. It's not going to be pleasant around my house. But I'm not giving in this time. I'm just not. It's not like that time when I was still working at Thatcher's and she would take my entire paycheck (two weeks worth, by the way, as we only got paid every other week there). NOT HAPPENING.

5. It's almost 12:30, I suppose I should get in the shower. Meh. Stef will be here at 1. The good part is, we're going to go pick up the stuff I ordered from Walmart. ^_^ Alright, I guess I'm going. Later!

Fucking son of a bitch.

Well... I was at the store today so I got some. Just now? She was bitching that she asked for the body spray, and she's refusing to take the soap. Which was $7 for two little bottles, by the way. And I can't make her return them because I put it on my bank card. Grrrrr. So now I'm out the money AND I've got to go back to the god damn store to return the fucking things. >_<

Wow. I just priced out a Dell computer- 2GB RAM, 500GB hard drive, DVD Burner, and it has Windows XP on it- $639. I'll have to remember that.

So no go, because I <3 my wireless mouse. Sadly, the next one up, which does have those ports, is 1249 for the basic system and 1779 for what I'd (ideally) want. Gah. Not cool.

I have to go eat... well, something and go to work, so on that note, I'll leave you with this meme stolen from [profile] aiwritingfic  (who else would it be, really? XD): Because we never really know each other as well as we think, in response to this post I'd like you to ask a question. Anything about which you are curious, anything you feel you ought to know about me. Silly, serious, personal, fannish. Ask away. Then, if you want, copy this to your own journal, and see what people don't know about you.

1. Mom is still bitching about the pan I wrecked yesterday. God, just get over it, honestly! It's just a pan! XD She's also bitching about how there's only six dollars on the laundry card. Um... dude. That's three loads of laundry. I understand that I need to put more money on it, but why are you having a fit that I can't do it right this split second? O_o You should NOT have more than three loads of laundry that you HAVE to wash before I get home. Geez.

2. I need to go, because I have to go into work early (since Scott can't manage to ever schedule a doctor's appointment until after he leaves work)... meh. Hopefully a shower will make me feel better, because right now... blah.

3. I really, really need to work on my room. XD At least the area around my desk, because I practically live in this chair. You wouldn't believe how bad my desk is at the moment. XDDD Also, Lane Bryant is having a good sale, so I need to try to get over there tomorrow or Wednesday.

4. Also, um... subrosa_tennis. XD Crap. I'm quite screwed.

5. Eep, almost 20 after. Got to run!

**EDIT** Fucking hell. I already told her I have to go to work early today. She just called me out into the kitchen just to scream at me about the god damn pan. Again. My god... It's. Just. A. PAN. Jesus christ, you have ten thousand of them as it is. Exactly how many pans do you need that you're going to carry on like this about one?! Erm... yeah, okay, REALLY have to go now. XD

The good news is... I now have ink in my printer and Harry Potter. The bad news is... I ended up spending about $110 to do this, and made two trips to Wal-mart and one trip to Target. Ugh. Basically... Stef and I went to Wal-mart to get the movie. I got the ink and two copies of Harry (one for me, one for Kelly's birthday). Spent about 75 bucks. Stef and I went back to my house to watch it... and were majorly pissed to discover that there were no special features. Turns out there are two versions of the damn thing, and we wanted the special edition one that Wal-mart didn't have, because Wal-mart is evil. Well... I'd already opened one, so I couldn't take that one back, but there was still the other. So after watching the movie we went off to Wal-mart for the return (15 bucks back in pocket). Then hopped over to Target because they DID have the good ones, and then spent 50 more bucks for the two DVD's (cuz Kelly would kill me if I gave her the one with no features on it)... urgh. It was just... frustrating. And I have no money until Thursday, which is always wonderful.

Mom and I finally had that "talk" she's been threatening. Of course, she started with her typical "You can't live anywhere for what you give me a month". Yeah, I know. That's why I still live here, remember? Because I can't afford my own damn apartment. Basically, I'm supposed to give her an extra $100 a month. Yeah. You realize I'm giving her almost half of my paycheck now? And she wonders why I can't move out... because after she gets "her" money, and after I buy groceries for fucking three people and a cat (and almost no help from her, thankyouverymuch), I'm pretty much done. And then to add insult to injury, she started on me about getting wireless internet again (she won't let me attach my computer to the modem unless we set it up for the wireless that SHE wants- but I have to pay for all the equipment and shit, which is just screwed up), and when I told her that it's too expensive, she was like "No, it's only about $100." And this is a day after you just squeezed an extra $100 a month out of me that I don't really have to begin with... how dare you! I don't see YOU shelling out the cash to get it done- because it's a lot of fucking money, and you know it, you just like your little fantasy that I have all this money and I DON'T. It's a lot to be just fucking throwing away... BITCH.

(although, on an afterthought... it might be worth it, just to shut her the fuck up... not to mention it would mean that she couldn't bitch about me being on her computer.)

Alright, enough whining... Suikoden IV is calling my name (I'm almost done, yay!)... later!

(Best line of the day: "Holy orgasm, Batman!" ~Stef)

My mother is Satan. That’s all there is to it, really. She came home two hours early for absolutely NO reason (at least that she gave- and yet, if I come home from work before 10:30, when I get out at 10, I get the fucking third degree... figure that one out), and even though I technically had signed off the computer and everything and hadn’t even been in the room for quite some time, I still hadn’t quite gotten around to turning the light back off and closing the door. So I then had to explain WHY I was on the fucking computer, when it was really none of her god damn business to begin with. Well... okay, I lied about why, but it’s not like I’m going to tell her “I needed to play my LORD game and catch up on my Harry/Draco fic, because I’m addicted to that.” Yeah. Whatever. It just pisses me off so much that at 22 years old, I have to explain myself for being on the computer because I’m “not supposed to be on it”. Seriously, how fucked up is that? And then, to add insult to injury, she was being a fucking cunt in general, bitching about the fact that I finished the milk (even though there was a whole other half gallon in the fridge), about how I was just putting laundry in when she came home (again, none of her fucking business- and if she hadn’t come home early, the laundry would’ve been done before she even got here and she never would’ve known... so she can shut the fuck up about that. She’s like, “You had all night to do it!” And I’m going “Well, I’m going to be up anyway, so it doesn’t matter.” This... is the way I do things, and you’re just going to have to deal with it.) So she’s been a fucking bitch ever since she got home, which is just GREAT. I ended up walking out on her, too. When she was in the middle of the milk bitch-fest, I just turned around and went into my room and shut the door on her mid sentence. Because apparently not feeling good and being tired of the bullshit all around is making me grow some balls.

I really need to grab those clothes and go to bed, I’m wiped. Later!

My mother kills me. I was pretty much falling asleep on the couch when she was leaving for work, and she's telling me that she wants me to call her at 3 a.m. to pretty much give her an excuse to leave work four hours early. Fucking A. Keep in mind that this was at 11 p.m., and I'm apparently supposed to stay up for another four hours just because god forbid she actually WORK. Son of a bitch. I should just go to bed, it would serve her right. The only reason why I'm not even really considering that a possibility is because Kelly fell down the stairs the other day at school and it fucked up her back... so she needs to go see the doctor about that. And I know that if I don't call mom, she'll be "too tired" to take Kelly tomorrow, so Kelly would be the one to suffer for it, not mom. The thing that really kills me about that is that her excuse for wanting to leave at three is that she wants to get some sleep before taking Kelly. We both know... she won't sleep, she'll just sit on the fucking computer for three or four hours. Because, you know, staring at a computer screen is the best thing for you when you need to go to bed. *Sigh* Which of course is one reason I'm here, even though I desperately want to be in bed. (I'm also addicted to my updates, what can I say).

I started trying to organize my computer a little bit so that stuff is where it belongs: you know, having ONE folder for pictures instead of four, that kind of thing. And... WOW. My desktop looks loads better, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. I didn't realize how big of a project that was going to be...

This will probably make absolutely no sense tomorrow because I'm just THAT tired. My brain's just like "duh". Okay, now off to do something to keep me entertained for the next hour and fifteen minutes.
