My therapist suggested I might try journaling again, as a way to just... get stuff out. She meant a private journal, which I will do, but I was thinking about it and figured I might try to use LJ again sometimes, too.

It's weird to type 'my therapist'. I had my second session with her last night, and I like her, but I'm still trying to get a feel for talking with her, and how things are going to go. I've always believed in therapy, in theory, but I've never seriously done therapy myself, so it's... odd feeling.

Other than that, life just keeps trucking along. [ profile] lonelyarcher has officially moved back to NY... I know people up there are very happy to have her back, but I am going to miss her terribly :P [ profile] imthelobster and I are mostly moved now, just have a few more misc boxes to go through and either store, put away, or throw out. I really didn't think we had so much STUFF, but there's been just boxes of crap everywhere. I'm hoping once we have that mess taken care of, things will feel more normal again.

I've been doing pretty well in school since I started going back. I'm taking two classes this semester, and it doesn't seem like a lot, but when you add on working 45 hours a week I get pretty tired sometimes. But it's been good, and I've been keeping up with my homework and stuff pretty well. These are still the easy classes, since I never finished my AA before, but still. I failed easy classes last time around cause I just never went or didn't feel like doing the work, so it's still progress.

Yay, updates?

I had a horrible day at work today. Like, seriously horrible. Apparently? Everything got deleted off of our computers somehow. Everything. So I was trying to rebuild files today, and find what we have on disk, etc. I mean, there's nothing super important that can't be replaced/found again on the comps alone, we're not that dumb, but it's still a royal pain in the ass. So. YAY?
Not to mention the fact that apparently fucking Krystal decided not to clead the breakroom ALL FUCKING WEEKEND, so who got that honor today? Uh huh, yeah. Me. It was disgusting, and it wouldn't have to be if everyone just did their job every night. I do it every time I close, too... and it's not that hard. vndjlnvbkl. WHATEVER.

So I was stressed out and exhausted and close to tears at more than one point today, and I decided to skip out on class. Probably stupid, but... whatever, too late to change it now. And I feel better.

The baby shower on Sunday was... boring. haha. I liked spending the night at my moms, though... haven't done that in a long time, and it was nice, just spending time with her. So, yay. :D

Ummm. yeah. I'm done.
Oh, except to say: [ profile] barbed_whispers you suck. :( Answer your phone sometime. :( (also: GIP. haha.)
athra: (Default)
Three people have turned in their [ profile] yuletide stories already? WTF, mate, WTF.
At least I started mine tonight, I guess.

In other news, I have a paper to write. I am procrastinating. sigh.
athra: ([BJT] eyrien prince)
Time to update? You bet!

I don't really remember what I updated about last time. hmm.

I did end up signing up for [ profile] yuletide, and I'm happy about what I get to write. :D Chances are I'll be cursing myself for this later, but for now it's all sunshine and roses. hahaha.
(If you're my [ profile] yuletide santa and you read this: pretty much everything makes me happy. Het, slash, gen... whatever. Hardcore or G rated... I am seriously easy to please. But if you're writing AB:VH, plz do not be making Edward gay? kthx.)

Umm. I had a really awesome Halloween night, and a really horrible few days at work. (The work load tonight was ridiculously large, and most definitely transferred over into tomorrow, and possibly also Monday morning, which blows so hard I don't even have the words.) I am, however, looking seriously into getting a second job. We'll see.

I finished my take home test for Western Civilization (thank god) which consisted of ten short essays and three longer ones. wtf, why did I put it off? And speaking of putting things off... I still have to do my paper, which is also due tomorrow. o.O wtf.

Some pictures of our Halloween stuff: here )

woot. ::runs off::
athra: ([Tenipuri] Jirou dance)

::deep breaths::



I GOT 100%!!!

Yeah. I'm spazzing JUST A LITTLE.

I celebrated by skipping my late class and going to McDonald's, hahahahaha.
athra: ([H&C] searching)
Today... weird. Just weird. I dunno.

Work was okay, though. Even if I spent a good deal of it on the floor fighting with a stupid disorganized filing cabinet. -_-

I'm pretty sure I completely bombed my Western Civ test. Yay?

But, I got an 87 on my second math test! Not as good as the first one, but not bad, anyway... (I got a 92 on the first one. I'm not sure I ever announced that here?)

I have a new layout! Check it out: [ profile] getaway_machine. I got [ profile] barbed_whispers to make it for me, because she loves me, no matter what she says.

Heroes was good. I guess. I dunno, I'm enjoying it but not LOVING it and I'm waiting for it to 100% capture me. I'm still liking Hiro quite a bit, though.

Much ♥ to [ profile] fluffymaru... just because. :)

And to [ profile] notworthy... you're still one of the best damn writers that I know, girl.

Meh. I don't think I have anything specific to talk about. yay for boring entries.
athra: ([Randy] being awesome)
Quick update before I have to leave the Library for class...

* Going to moms tonight. Will collect Windows Disk. Will reinstall Windows. Will hopefully have computer again.

* Math SUCKS. Okay, seriously. I was up FOREVER last night doing math. And today during lunch break. Am I done? No, of course not. ::stabs things::

* Had the most awesome conversation last night EVER with [ profile] barbed_whispers and [ profile] simplykatie. Everyone should know: onions are poisoned. If you eat them, you'll die within 20 minutes. ::/PSA::

* In light of the most awesome conversation EVER, my phone service decided to turn off today. FUN! Of the not-so-much variety. I think I can still receive calls, so you can try if you need me, but otherwise it's gone until either Friday or Saturday. So hopefully I can get my computer back up tonight, or I will be without any way to communicate to the outside world...

* I finished the Coldfire Trilogy! OMG SO GOOOOOD. SO, SO GOOD. fnjknbklfdbnlk. I want to write about it. I don't have time right now.

* For the record: work sucks. had a HORRIBLE day today, tomorrow is not looking to be much better. What is up with my week??

* What's REALLY funny, is that despite all the bad shit going on this week? I am in a surprisingly good mood. So YAAY for that, at least!

ETA: haha, I just realized that those last two things look so contradictory. BUT THEY ARE BOTH TRUE. okay. ::runs away to freakin' math now::
athra: ([misc] Sakura)
I guess I should do an update, since I haven't in a while.

First things first: much love to Nicole and Casey for throwing me a birthday party. :D I had a lot of fun, even if Trick Shots fails like a failing thing. And thanks to you guys who came, too. :D

School has started again. I've been to two of my four classes so far... I'll go to the other two today. My math professor seems AWESOME, even if it is math. But that should make the class better! Because even if I hate the subject material, I like him, so maybe I won't dread going to class every week. My Western Civ professor is less awesome, which makes me SO MAD at myself, because the prof I had at UCF was so cool, and I fucked that up. ergh. Still... doesn't seem like it'll be bad. Essay tests, which made a lot of people groan, but dude, I LOVE those things. And only one paper, 2000 words, which wtf, is SHORT. I'm not worried. Plus, I LIKE history, even if I generally like it a little more modern than ancient Sumerarians, but whatevs. We'll get into Greek/Roman stuff eventually... although she said we probably won't make it to the Reformation and Renaissance. Oh well.

We'll see how U.S. Government and Religion goes today then, eh?

In other news, work has been... insane. They just downloaded a new timeclock system... and you'd think people were morons, I swear. You push the "START WORK" button to begin your shift. What a concept! I hate them all. If anything, this new timeclock is less complicated than the old one, where you had to push "F10". Whatever, I hate them all.

Although, it DOES suck that no one bothered to give any of Clerical any training, which means that we don't know how to get to any of our reports. FUN. But whatever, I'm on vacation now, so hopefully they'll have it figured out by the time I get back, eh?

Speaking of vacation... OMG DRAGON*CON SOON! I am so excited. Really. I should probably make myself a checklist or something, though, or I'm likely to forget something, which would not be cool. ergh. And it would be really nice to have a CAMERA CORD, so that I could have nothing on my memory card and plenty of room for pics! And so that I could DOWNLOAD THEM when I got home! UGHHHH that is so aggravating, because I STILL haven't found it, and a replacement one from Best Buy is like... $30. wtf?

OH. My tamagotchi (Lilly) had a baby! it was so funny. This other random tamagotchi shows up, and then a screen that says Love? and has me pick yes or no. So, for kicks, I pick yes, right? And then it shows them together with a heart over their heads... AND THEN THE SCREEN GOES BLACK. AND THEN THERE ARE FIREWORKS. omg, they were so having sex! And when the lights came back on? The other tamagotchi was GONE and there was a baby next to Lilly! omg the bastard left her a single mom! rofl. And when she feeds the baby, it kind of looks like she's puking on it. There's still some question as to what the baby will be named. He's a boy... I'm thinking of following in the VMars tradition and going with Wevil. (only one 'e', because it has to be five letters or less.) ahaha, I love this thing.

I know I had other things to update about... bah. This is what I get for not updating every day.

Random: If you hadn't noticed yet, I changed my layout. I think it's very pretty now! I probably won't keep this up for long, though, since it's an eljay default and that kind of bugs me, but at the same time I really like it... so we'll see!
athra: ([Firefly] doesn't comprehend)

Yeah, I'm not happy, because I need to have that availability turned into Melissa by Wednesday at the latest, or she'll be scheduling me into weeks that school will have started by. Seriously. This is so annoying.

In other news... I have no other news. Just working and nonsense. And hating the fact that I have to come to the library for internet. -_- (At least I have some option, though.)

Hell's Kitchen season finale tonight, woo!
athra: ([DoA] Kasumi fight)
It's kind of funny the things that you see that can make you go "WHAT?!" and get you all upset sometimes, isn't it?


Registration still down... but at least they put an ETA on it this time. Monday, 8am... I might make an effort to get to the library before work on Monday, but more likely I'll wait until after work.

I still hate not having the internet in my apartment... and I can't get on AIM Express here for some reason, which SUCKS because there's a couple people I would really like to talk to, grrr.

Also, I am bored out of my MIND. Someone should entertain me, seriously. :/ :/
athra: ([Halo] neat colors)
Okay. So for those of you who haven't heard yet through the grapevine or whatever, I won't have internet until Thursday. Next Thursday. A freakin' week from now. I am not pleased about this, to say the least, but you do what you gotta do, hey?

So I'm at the library right now. I was supposed to be registering for classes at Valencia, but Atlas is still down, the stupid thing, so I figured I would take some time to update real quick.

I've moved into my apartment! I'm happy about that, muchly. I think it looks nice, too. My mom was the best mom ever and took a half-day at work so that I wasn't alone with the movers, which I appreciated so much, since I've never done anything like that before and it was odd. And then Nicole & Casey, being the awesome friends they are, came over when I got out of my orientation and helped me unpack some of my boxes and set a few things up and just hang out and whatever.

I'm going out with my dad, stepmom and grandmother today to pick up some essentials for living... like pots. and a microwave. So I can freaking EAT, because sandwiches are going to get old fast, I am quite certain.

Orientation at Valencia went... boringly. Heh. As mentioned, though, I still haven't been able to register for classes, which is so ridiculous. Ugh. But... whatever. I'll get it done, and at least I'm not behind, because no one can register right now. Which makes me feel better.

So mostly I've just been busy with work, and setting myself up for school, and moving in, and all that jazz. I miss being online, though. :( and omg I haven't talked to [ profile] barbed_whispers in DAYS, I think I might be dying. booo. But I'll have internet again in a week! I keep telling myself that to try and make myself believe it's a short amount of time or something. It's not really working. :/

I'm sure I had more things to update about, but I'm short on time right now and just wanted to get an entry out there so you guys didn't think I'd dropped off the face of the planet or something. And sorry I wasn't really able to read my flist very well... I skimmed, but I skipped a lot. If I missed something important, comment?



HAPPY BIRTHDAY [ profile] intotheheart!


pee ess: I have an awesome new Halo icon, I do, I do.
athra: ([Tenipuri] Atobe Shine On)
I move into my new apartment tomorrow. ::flips out only a little:: They pissed me off today, though, by not letting me pick up my key until tomorrow morning, which I think is absolute bullshit since my move-in date is today, even if the moving company isn't coming until tomorrow. WHATEVER. I just can't wait to be in there and have all the stress from this shit out of my life.

I did get a chance to peek inside and see it for the first time, though, however briefly. It's a little small, but so what, yeah? It's two bedrooms, though, and it's... haha, I don't know. Normal. White walls, beige carpet... I'll take pictures when I get the chance. I think, mostly, I'm just excited to be able to live by myself for a while. (Though, I won't lie -- I can't fucking wait for [ profile] barbed_whispers to move her ass down here already, because that's going to be awesome. Or terrifying. Actually, probably both!)

I have to admit, though, hanging out with Nicole and Casey this whole week has been a helluva lot of fun... although I'm sure they're ready to be rid of me, hahaha.

Anyway. I had my first Monday of my new schedule at work today... went pretty well. I felt bad for Melissa and Molly, who were both having kinda bad days, but I had a nice lunch with Carrie and Brandy and have I mentioned lately how much I actually do like my job, and especially the people I work with? I mean, sometimes I hate my job, and sometimes I wake up and just don't want to go, but I always like the people I'm working with, and that's a huge plus.

Oh! And I have Valencia orientation tomorrow, too! Oh, good lord. ::falls over::

And I just have to add this: [ profile] simplykatie, you are a wonderful person and those people are just assholes who don't deserve your time, okay? I wish I could be there for you today, but you know I'm there in spirit and I'm thinking about you and I ♥ you. I wish you were online more, because I miss talking to you. :( And we need to talk about script! Yesss. Anyway, I hope you feel better because those people are so not worth getting upset over, seriously.

That said, I think I'm done here. :)
athra: ([Firefly] fucking scary hair)
I could have gone a lifetime without the reminder that UCF parking sucks fucking monkey balls.

And being sent around in circles over a simple question? YEAH THAT'S ALWAYS FUN, TOO!

ncjdsfka. I HATE the way they run things there, it's ridiculous.

In other news... [ profile] takarakanashi, if you actually read this, I need to talk to you.
athra: ([Tenipuri] Jirou dance)
...okay, wow. Updating from the actual lj page and not through Semagic is just... weird. I don't like it. heh.


FINALS ARE OVER FOR MEEEE. ::does the dance of HELL YEAH and YAY!::

However, I am exhausted. I was up until four in the fucking morning this morning, finishing [or, uh, starting and finishing, haha] a paper for my Humanities class. Which, thanks to the time-table, probably sucks, but I adamantly refused to reread it today, because that would just have depressed me, so it's turned in and I suppose we'll just see how that goes.

[I could go into a long rant here about how I blame DoC for how long it took me to finish my paper, but I suppose that's obvious so I won't.]

I go into work today at 5, though, and I'm there until 11... and then Narnia at midnight. It's a damn good thing I don't have work or school tomorrow, because I am going to be dead. And Narnia bettwe be an excellent movie, or I may just fall asleep during it. haha. ha. yeah.

In more vague news, isn't it strange how things happen or hit you when you don't expect them to?
Yeah. [[ profile] simplykatie, I need to talk to you. To [ profile] fluffymaru, too, but I can do that tonight maybe? Whatever.]

Anyway. I think I'll go nap for an hour before work.
athra: ([Tsubasa] XD >:[)
I have a five page final paper due on Thursday.

I have half a paragraph written for it. Go me! haha.

Um. Right. Anyone want to kick me into writing this? ::facepalm::

[ profile] barbed_whispers I <3 you and I hate you and I miss you and YOU SUCK for leaving quickly tonight. :(:(

...yeah, my life is boring.
athra: ([Tenipuri] Akaya red eyes)
I am so tired..
I like my new job, and I'm actually even enjoying school a lot this semester, but damn if I don't feel like I haven't slept in ages...

I <3 Halo. For the .01% of you that didn't already know. I finally went and got Halo 2... Jason andI have been playing, it's awesome. I wish [ profile] faeriedeath would play, but she won't... that's okay, though. We've been playing Donkey Kong and Mario and that's pretty hot. [Because that's how we roll, biatch.]

I feel like I don't have a lot of time for a lot of things right now, and that sucks. But I don't know why, since I've been getting stuff done... everything's just busier in my life right now, I guess. Which is kind of nice, but kind of not at the same time. I don't know.
I guess I don't really have anything to say... but I'm happy right now, and I just wanted to make a post saying so, basically. So yay. :)
athra: ([Buffy] Restless)
I'm bored, and in the computer lab, so I'm updating, because I can. So yes, there's really no point to this. Oh well.

I really, really hope that I get back my grade from the Humanities test today. It's been bothering me since we took it two weeks ago, and I just want to know.

I was going to work on Government work today in the lab, but for some reason I can't sign onto my WebCT from here... it's telling me that my password is wrong, but that makes no sense since I sign in just fine from home. I don't know. But it's annoying that I wanted to do school work and I can't.

Another Astronomy test is coming up on Thursday, yet I fail to be worried about that. But that's not exactly a bad thing -- I will study for it, but I think it's going to be fine. woot.

I still haven't heard from Target, and it's getting really annoying, actually. I'm like... if I'm hired like you say I am, then give me my damn job! I could really use a paycheck. I called CheckPoint Services this morning before classes, and they said that they did get my fax and that my paperwork went out to the corporate office on September 30th... and then the corporate office has to actually send it to my store and then I'll get my orientation date. Since the 30th was Friday, that's three days, today makes four... I think, right? Not counting Sunday, since mail doesn't run on Sunday. So if I don't hear from them soon, I'll be calling them tomorrow or Thursday, since I think that's enough time... but it's so aggravating. I've never had this much of an issue actually starting work once I knew I had a job. Argh!

Okay. I'm still bored. Blah. But I can't go home, because if I do I'll never convince myself to drive back here again for class. Dilemma! Sigh.
I'll find something else to waste the rest of my time.
