Ugh. I feel like life cast "Gravehands" on me recently. For those of you who don't play Imperian, imagine that a large number of skeletal arms have thrust up from the ground and are grasping at you, dragging you down. Just like in the seminal "Everything Counts" by Depeche Mode. Anything I write here and now is going to sound all emo, like I've been listening to Counting Crows and the Cure or something (which I do, but that's beside the point). So bear with me, I'll keep it brief. Or at least as brief as I happen to be capable of. Yeah, I know, better get your popcorn...You all know me too well.
Classes and work are putting incredible amounts of stress on me now. If they weren't so time consuming, and in some cases difficult, things might be better. But work especially is heating up again; grinding me down. I've pretty much given up on my Senior Thesis. I don't have the time and energy to devote to it, so I just sort of gave up. I hope I can get an incomplete on it. That'll take some pressure off, just knowing I've got that. I think I finally secured an apartment for the summer (waiting to hear if my application was accepted), but the rent's quite a bit steeper, so while having the thing is a relief, the increased cost is also weighing on me. Hopefully, it'll cost a lot less to keep cool, maybe keep my power bill around fifty bucks. That'd be nice, and could largely defray the extra rent. I will take possession the 3rd of May, and start doing the move in stuff. To my friends: guess which incredibly large bit of recently received furniture I'm going to dragoon you into helping me move in exchange for pizza and booze.
I owe the library some $75 in late fees. Forgetting that I could recheck my books online and just deciding that I'd keep them until I was done with them did not, as it happens, turn out to be a good plan. So I'm falling deeper and deeper into debt. I need my paychecks from work, but there was a bit of a mix up and my hours from spring break won't end up on this paycheck...whenever we get them now, since I hear we're changing what day we get paid on.
Hell, I'm even avoiding my games, that once brought me such joy. Only Oblivion offers me solace now. I have responsibilities in Imperian, that are rapidly catching up to me...why I decided Loenar needed an apartment is now beyond me. I think I can afford one more year's (two weeks) rent and then I'd better find some money, or I'm going to end up in trouble. It's sad when the video games you play stress you out.
On a cheerier note, congrats to Jolynn for finally securing herself a new boytoy. I hope you enjoy him. *grin* Oh, and this doesn't get you out of a visit from me, just so you know.
