I keep meaning to post a status update lately, but I've been downing in Life.

Not Offline Issues. Just.


Thing the First: I have a new job! )

Suffice to say, it's been a really bad week. I'm trying to decompress for the weekend (hence the ranty post), but it's not happening as easily I need it to be. >.<

So. Moving on to happier things.

Thing the Second: I moved! I was finally able to move into a bigger apartment! I HAVE MY OWN ROOM. MY OWN BATHROOM. THINGS THAT ARE MINE AND SPACE THAT IS MINE AND I DO NOT HAVE TO SHARE IT. -Flails forever- My room looks like a storage unit right now because all I have is a bed and a lot of boxes but OMG MY ROOM!!!! \0/ Also a bigger kitchen and living room, and a balcony. Downside is that we have a flight of stairs now, but considering it's now only 10-15 minutes to work AND there's a bus I can take if I need to? NEW APARTMENT IS AWESOME. ♥

Thing the Third: I has new laptop!

Meet Kim: )

Other news ... Uh. I'm attempting NaNo this year, as always. I really don't know how it's going to work out with massive amounts of overtime, but I'm going to give it try. I think having my Kindle this year is actually going to help a lot, because I write on that on my lunch breaks sometimes. My goal is to write what I can during the weekdays, even if it's just a couple hundred words, and then OD on Code Red and ice cream to catch up on the weekends. I think even though NaNo is well, NaNo, and November is The Month of Doom, I really need to make the effort to write more for awhile. I'm a lot less stressed out after I write.

On which note, I am off to attempt to do some writing! Because Writing Therapy. It's important. ♥

Well, that was the shortest-lived disappearance from the net I've ever had.

Everyone, meet Zack! He's my shiny new Toshiba laptop! I've had him for all of nine hours, and I already love him dearly. ♥

Zack's name comes from the fact that on our way home from getting him, Brother was playing Final Fantasy music on his iPhone, and he happens to be black, which made me think of Zack Fair from Final Fantasy VII and Crisis Core (I debated Carlos or Dillon, but neither name felt right for him.) After spending several hours getting to know him and attempting to explore Windows 8 for the first time, I've decided Zack is definitely the right name. Windows 8 is like Windows with ADD, I swear.

But the most important thing is that I am once again with a computer. Which means WRITING! And most importantly, Not Writing!

This has been a bad week.

Potential place to live fell through, which made me a lot sadder than I expected to be. I hadn't realized how much I was looking forward to it - and I wasn't even the one doing the buying.

A friend of mine is about to be laid off. She's got time to try and find something else, but it's still upsetting to hear about. I know how much she loves what she does.

Adam has finally kicked the bucket. I knew it was coming, but it's now official: he blue-screened on me the night before last and has not been able to find his operating system since then. Various stories and other files have all been backed up in multiple places, so I haven't lost anything irreplaceable, thankfully. But Brother took a look at it and determined that for $200 I don't have I could fix him, but at that rate I might as well hold out for another $150 and just get a whole new computer. Not that I can really do *anything* about it until I have some form of income anyway.

Ironically Kim, my MP3 player, died less than a week before Adam did. So my phone is my only source of music for the moment.

Still can't find work. I've been applying everywhere I can think of, and Brother's mom has been suggesting everywhere *she* can think of, but no luck. Just a couple of pre-interview phone calls that nothing came of. Which means I can't do anything about anything until something comes up. >.<

So I've spent today playing Final Fantasy VII for awhile, and now I'm back to Harvest Moon while the PSP charges. Somewhere between killing things and various types of farming, I'm hoping to cheer myself up.
