 Y'all might as well get used to the fact that I only show up here around deadline time.  It's impressive what you can come up with to do when you're busy trying to not do work.

So, I'm on my second freelance assignment.  I can pretty much just keep doing this until I die, it seems - I got excellent feedback for my work, was paid promptly (although waiting for money to clear through oDesk is like waiting for paint to dry), and they handed over a new assignment almost immediately.  Work work work.

However.  I am lazy.  So there you go.

Do I actually get to call myself a freelance writer now?  I was wondering that earlier.  I changed my Facebook profile (you know that makes it official, yo), and it made me feel a bit shiny, but I just don't know if I can go that far yet.  Depending on how long I do this, I will have to claim it for tax reasons - maybe that makes it official?  I dunno.  I'm a dork.

God, shut up Moni, go back to work.

I have recently taken a late-night closing shift here at the library, meaning that I get to be here all alone apart from the librarian until 9pm on Thursday nights.  It's cool, cause, well, I get left alone.  But it sucks when I get hungry.  So I called Meridan and made him bring me Taco Bell.

Meridan: I forgot to tell them no sour cream with the Cheesy Fiesta Potatoes.

Me:  Okay...

Meridan: It's ok, I ate it all off for you.

Me:  You just ate a big blob of sour cream?

Meridan:  Well, there might have been some potatoes with it.

Me:  It's okay.  I don't mind sour cream that much.  But you know I asked for regular Fiesta Potatoes and not Cheesy ones, right?

Meridan:  I forgot that too.  I just assume nowadays that everything you want is cheesy.

To be fair, it's a valid assumption.  But still.  This is why I try not to send him to pick things up for me.

Then, I asked him if he thought I had ADHD, and he told me no, that I was just a hoarder.  All because I tried to get him to go get a recliner that someone left by the dumpster at the apartment complex yesterday.  It might have been nice!  And ours is broken!  Jeez.

I love the sense of satisfaction that comes from having all my bills for the month taken care of by the 15th.  It's so liberating to look at the (albeit small) amount of money left in my account and think, "Hey, this has nowhere else it needs to stretch!"  Especially when there's food in the house.  Not much gas in the car, though.

Things are going well in our neck of the woods.  My apartment is a complete and total pigsty because school and work have sort of overtaken me as well as Meridan.  And that cold I had at the beginning of the quarter really set me back.  I think I'm okay at the moment, though.  Ari will be over this weekend, and I'll try to use him for free labor.

My math conference last weekend was AMAZING.  I don't know why I always portray myself as someone who's bad at math - I'm really not.  I'm not a math genius, but I pick up concepts pretty quickly, and I find most basic math activities to be really fun.  Which is good, because it takes a teacher who really loves math to teach it well. 

I'm seriously so busy, though.  I'm tired all the time.  The classes I'm in, though they're at SPSCC, are NOT entry level or easy classes by far.  My Math for Elementary Ed is extremely work-intensive and mentally exhausting, my Earth science class requires a lot of study and memorization, and my Japanese class... well, all language classes are inherently full of work and memorization.  This one isn't too hard, but still.

Two more quarters for this stupid AA, and then I'm taking the AA and ALL my practically useless Evergreen credits to UW and seeing what they want to take.

Yeah, Meridan and I are thinking Seattle again.  We have some friends moving up there, and I discovered a degree program at UW that I'm really, really interested in.  It's early childhood, but it's psychology and biology based - it's basically all about the science of development.  It's a BA, and it leads right into the MIT program at UW, so I might just be getting my masters degree before I get to the classroom.  We'll see.

Going to try to update more.  When schoolwork isn't punching me in the face, you know.

Paper is practically done, just needs a conclusion. I still have a couple of other assignments, but I'm waiting until 5:45 to start so that the rest of my time goes fast.

GODDAMNIT I just accidentally closed my Firefox window with a million tabs open. Cocksucker!

Anyways.

I'm insanely hungry, so when Meridan called me an hour ago, I begged him to take me to the Voyeur when he gets here. We really don't have the money to spare on it, but I have the biggest craving for an Avocado Melt like you wouldn't believe. And, of course, I'm sitting here reading fucking food blogs. I'm a smarty pants.

It gets so cold in the library at night. Even though the sun is still out (yay for longer days!), it's really freezing in here, and while using a mouse isn't such a big deal, it is hard to type in the cold. But I'm a whiner, so, y'know.

All right. I'm not going to want to deal with this paper when I get home, so I best finish it now.

Forgot my iPod today. Damnation.

All done with work now, and it's study corner yet again. I got so much done yesterday by staying after school until Meridan picked me up at 6, so I figured I'd try again today. It's all English homework today.

I had a draft written for my paper already, but I scrapped it this morning after I realized it really had no point. I tend to free-write my drafts without editing, so they really don't work for final products. What usually happens is that I hit on an idea somewhere around the second page that can work for the whole paper, and that's what happened with this one.

I can't wait to be fucking done with Angels in America. After this paper, I can forget about it. Good play, yes, but I'm sick of it after a month and a half.

Crap, if I can't think of things to write about here, I have to start working. Um. Think.

I got the 25th off work so I can just stay home and pack. This is a very good thing. Meridan has to work, but there's so much I can do on my own. And we've told the power company to turn on our juice on the 27th, so depending on how quickly the two of us can get shit out, we might be able to do it all on the 26th. That's when they're giving us our keys, so that's when it happens.

I ate breakfast and had lunch today at noon, and I'm hungry again now. WTF? It's only 3. I know I can make it longer, but maybe I should just get my paper done and get out of here. Hm. I guess I'll try. Paper time.

Syncing my Gmail calendar to my iPod Touch should NOT be this hard. Yeesh.

I decided to update my calendar since I got my work schedule today - I am in fact not going to be working the same hours as last quarter. Seems that my computer talents are in high demand (HAH), so I'm doing 9am-1pm computer floor support every day.

I don't really mind the schedule change. Meridan is going to switch his schedule to match mine, so he can take me to work, and even though I get done several hours before him, I can either stick around and do homework or take the bus home. The nice part is that if I do bus home, it'll be light out. Yay!

God, I'm so glad it's Wednesday. I have so much to do this week, and I really need Meridan's help. Gotta finish Christmas shopping, buy groceries, hunt down the rest of my schoolbooks, and do a crapload of other things. Sigh.

I'm doing pretty much all my posting from Dreamwidth now.  It's quite nice to be ad-free.  :)

I'll share invite codes as they come, never fear!

Anyways.  Everything gets crossposted, so you won't miss anything.

So, yeah.  The wedding is getting moved back, possibly until next spring.  I'm not yet ready to give up on 2009, though, and weather permitting, I'm seriously considering Halloween.  If we did that, I'd move the reception probably and just have the ceremony at Priest Point, since once it got later it'd probably get relatively cold.  I'm going to go pick up a Farmer's Almanac at the bookstore later and consider this. 

I'm not trying to go gothy gothy pants with the whole thing - I just like Samhain, and fall is nice.  But it's just a thought.  I'm not really too much in the mood to think about the wedding with all the money issues we've been having, so I'm not going to worry about it for now.

I'm at work, and it's fucking 80 degrees here.  AUGH.
