shinydinosaur: (up to no good)
..cause I've been frikkin busy. 3 weeks in a row, I'm clocking 25 hours of work a week and 13 credit hours. So every spare moment of my life is taken up. On the plus side, my paycheck tomorrow (before taxes) is $412.

HEY GUESS WHAT. I went to the chiropractor last Monday! I already feel amazing although I need to go ideally 2x a week for 4 months or so - and my schedule barely lets me go 1x a week and that's in-between classes even. Definitely a stretch. Fortunately my new class schedule for second semester means I don't have super long days anymore and all last classes end at 1pm!

That paper I'm supposed to turn in tomorrow about my future career, for that class that told me last week how to write resumes and do job interviews/applications? Yeah, I haven't done it yet. Cause I've been working all the time. Hi, irony. You're looking sharp today.

Last week I used every tiny second to finish my first actual cross-stitch project, which I proudly present here.
Took me 5 months off-and-on, but 2/3rds of it was done by month three. The face was about.. 15-20ish hours to do, just the outline of the hand/flower was about three hours and probably 6-10 to color in, words take about 2-4 to stitch and color... I lost count after that. x_x
Start date: June 6 - End date: September 25ish.

I'm also thinking about doing some cross-stitch gifts for Christmas. Probably sticking with bookmarks and stuff since it's easier, depending on my work schedule during my college break. x___x;

...considering I missed the first two classes, I picked up relatively fast on the movements (it's like choreographed stage fighting at this level, which I'm pretty good at) and I'm really enjoying it.

BTW, Karate is replacing Freshman English cause I PASSED THE EXAM! :DDD


And I'm still fighting what the doctor classified as an upper respiratory infection - like a bad head cold where your head feels like brinks, throat burns, and you use a box of tissues a day.. I've had this since.. a day or two after the hurricane... missed work Tuesday and wound up with a fever, got that managed today and went to classes (was at school 8am-7pm, easily my longest day) but felt really bleh, and I'm working tomorrow. 9am-7pm. Pray it does not go longer than that or I may die. Still have to have some homework done for Friday's history quiz and I don't feel up to it and I don't wanna rush. :/

For anyone wondering about hurricane Irene: I'd *just* finished watching Doctor Who when the power went out - and stayed out for about 4 1/2 days. Those were interesting times. But at least I could distract myself by WTF-ing over the latest episode!

The other thing distracting me lately is http://www.thecapitol.pn/ which looks like the beginnings of an epic ARG for The Hunger Games movie, due in 2012. AAAH HOLY CRAP THE SYMBOL.
Two days ago it was nothing but fuzzy, pixely distortion, then it was a little clearer yesterday, and now it's perfect. There was some Morse code bleeping in the background but it seems to have gone, and the 'Acquiring Signal' in bottom left is usually where the Twitter login is. I'll check it tomorrow and see what's up. ARGs are SUPER SUPER FUN when done right, and I participated in the Dollhouse ARG like.. forever years ago between seasons 1 and 2, via Twitter and game-centric sites and it was an absolute blast. 'Hacking' into Rossum, trying to help this agent out.. I still hear from my fellow CTPs every so often and I look forward to one where I can be even more involved.


Ew, must medicate and sleep. Thankfully my temperature's not creeping up again.

In exactly a week from right now, I'll be at the bus stop for NYC, and leaving in a week plus two hours. <33

Random: I painted my toenails this nice shiny purple b/c it seemed like the best course of action.

well.

Went to bed at midnight but woke up at 5AM... when my alarm's set for 7. :|

My bookbag is like fifty pounds of dead weight with all my textbooks so I'm doing the unthinkable and ditching my messenger bag companion for the drawstring college bag, and just dumping my pencil case and wallet and whatever else I need in there. Haven't even tried stuffing my computer in, but I figure I've only got an hour of free time and classes all around it, so I'll just bring along my sign language book to read errr.. no room for another book, maybe I'll just go to the library or something. Yeah. They have computers there. :)


PS: I was completely my best at work yesterday, being awesome and fixing stuff for customers and getting the computers and receipts system working when one of the other girls totally didn't know how to do it. \o/

FRIDAY
8am - MTH 152
10am - HIS 101
11am - BIO 101
12am - ENG 111

I am going to hate myself later for forcing myself to take math first every day. @__@

Except I could potentially find out today if I don't need to take English. \o/ Which also means I don't have to pay for two more books and at this point I'm happier thinking about less weight on my back rather than not paying for them. Still not sure if I'll be able to carry my computer with me unless I drag along my messenger bag or ditch my two notebooks and copy info to them later on. :/
