Erm, hi. I don't know who still looks at this, but I just did and realized that I have been a very bad girl about updating. By "being a bad girl about it" I mean "not doing it at all." -_-;; Of course, I'm going out on a limb by assuming that anyone has noticed/cared but I really don't have anything better to do right now except take a shower and pack up my apartment so I can be moved out by tomorrow...

Remember when I said I wanted to go to Northern? Well I'm getting my wish in about 2 days and I'm a bit nervous about being shoved into a 3x3 cube with another person and all our stuff but I can get over that...I hope...in any event I know enough people there that I won't have to be in my room for more than it takes to get dressed/sleep if need be, but I don't anticipate any problems. What worries me most is being the designated buyer of alcohol for the entire floor. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that there will be some other 21 year old fool on the floor, but somehow that seems highly unlikely.

I'm also unemployed for the third time this year, but I'm looking at a couple workstudy jobs. I will be making less than I did at Party Shitty if I take one, but it will mean more government money at financial aid time so that's a happy thing.

I just got the Orbital CD I won on ebay and it is kicking my ass. I think I'll put it in my car. Oh yeah, I did get a new alternator last winter -_-;; And will probably get another new one this coming winter...knock on wood or something...well I'm done I guess. I should probably redecorate this cobwebby little corner of the web I call mine own. All in good time. I can't wait to see 2 AM on a weekday again ^_^

I'm asking myself one question right now...what better way is there to end a holiday weekend than with crappy weather, a smokey smelling apartment, piles of undone homework, and a car dead in the Cub Foods' parking lot? I sure can't think of one!

I guess my little electrical glitch is more than I bargained for...considering my radio was acting screwy all night and now the ungrateful bastard, who won't even pretend to start, is lying conquered in a parking lot -_-;; This blows.

Sigh, I guess it only makes sense for something stupid like this to happen right in the middle of a happy time in my life. I should so just buy a great big house and become a hermit. I could work from home and order groceries online, and then get a DDR machine to keep myself entertained..and sleep in my big mattress room when I get tired ^_^ Mmmm mattress....mmmm bed. Mmmmm not even going to think about my bakabakadamedesu car any more tonight because there's absolutely nothing I can do about it at this hour with my resources. Blargh, I really hate being a damsel in distress -_-;;

Blargh, who am I trying to kid? I don't know anything about cars ;_; I went outside to try and troubleshoot and all I got was cold and scared...it's cold and there are wolves after me! My stupid turn signal still works, the headlights are fine, the car starts, so I bet it's something wrong with the brakes or something. Eric said to check the brake fluid, which is easier said than done. I opened the little cappy thing and that's about as far as I got. How can you tell if there's fluid in there or not? It looks like there's some sort of screen or something covering up the little holding tank thing. Mou, what bad timing. This better not be a sign that this winter will be like that one year when my battery died and then I needed a new alternator...or that other year when the door got stuck and my dad disconnected power to my driver's side door and now it's completely useless. Weekly World News did have headlines about this being the worst winter ever, but they say that every year and I'm just looking for a scapegoat since I can't figure out what's really wrong -_-;;

So, now I'm sitting here drinking wild cherry pepsi and eating goldfish when I should be fixing my car, writing a paper, doing laundry, going grocery shopping, finding a dress for the xmas party, going to the bank, and ending world hunger. This is serving to be a pitiful reminder of just how dependent I am on my car for things. But ne, it's not just me it's our whole society! If everyone just rode ponies there would be much less angst in the world.

Mou, just when I thought my car and I had reached a mutual understanding about this whole "winter" thing...it goes and throws a hissy fit on my way home from work :/

I was just driving along minding my own business and trying to turn left when 3 warning lights came on: brake, battery charge, and lights. Not wanting to risk a catastrophic explosion or brake failure I came straight home and parked and tried to think of what could be wrong. Since I'm not a car person by any stretch of the imagination, I had a pretty hard time -_-;; I checked all the lights and they work, except my left turn signal has been blinking really spastically lately which leads me to believe it might have burnt out when I was driving home. And as far as the battery goes, I turned the car off and then started it and it worked without a problem...and the brakes don't feel any weirder than normal so I'm hoping it was the turn signal fizzling out that triggered a stupid chain reaction of warning lights or something. Car trouble is not something I want to deal with right now, especially because it's so frickin cold and I don't have any way to get anywhere if my car is inoperable >.< Oh well, I guess I'll just go look at it again and pretend I have a clue about what I'm supposed to be looking for...

I wonder what more I have to put off in order to be crowned the queen of procrastination...I have a decent amount of homework piling up that I'm pretty much ignoring because it's not technically due until Monday, I have a huge pile of laundry in my closet, some dishes in the sink, and I have to register for next semester's classes....hm. I guess I'm not really in that bad of shape, but it still seems like a lot to do ^^;;

Next semester is looking to be pretty interesting 'round these parts. First, I'm going to be taking 14 hours which if I pull it off will be a record for me -_-;; Second, two of those classes are math/science labs...buuuut it's like math 101 (thug math) and astronomy so it shouldn't be too much of a war hell ride. Then I'm taking Asian and African humanities as well as Ethics, both of which I am eagerly anticipating. Dunno who I've told, but I'm going to be a philosophy major now ^_^ I really want to go to Northern, but they don't offer a bilingual education major which was my original plan. So I'm going to be a viking and deal with it by majoring in philosophy. The subject matter is really interesting and it will give me a chance to channel my Libran need for intellectualization into something productive so I can stop wasting everyone else's time pontificating and analyzing everything to death -_-;; Oh yeah, I've been reading up on astrology a lot lately and it's freaking me out in the best possible way ^.^

Somehow this leads me to the topic of work...I dunno if I'm going to be able to keep my spot at Yo! HFC while taking the classes I need to graduate, which I will be doing at the end of the semester provided I take a summer class and don't drop anything else. Run-on much? Anyhow, I'm hoping that the education and employment gods are in my corner on this one. They've come through for me before, so all I can do is keep my fingers crossed that they'll be consistent. Mmmmm consistency, that's the ichiban thing I'm hoping to gain from school next year. Although, I'm still bummed about not really knowing where I'm going to go on breaks. But ne, that's a whole different bag of worms ^_^ I'll just concentrate on the ones I've got now and hope for the best!
