I know I have said this before... but I am
going to be continuing Boy Who Cried Potter
. I have been crazy stressed and have crazy issues lately which is why I haven't been around.
I am going to be moving again
in about a week. I am moving to Kalamazoo to be closer to my sister, who is due to have her baby between the 11th and 25th of December. I'll be living with friends, who I've lived with before. I also would like to go back to school, and the community college near her offers a degree that I am interested in, and all of my credits will transfer, so that's good. They also have a couple of certificate programs that I am excited to go for.
Things on the work front have been stressful. I've been super busy because we always have a lot of changes that need to be made at the end of the year with the Websites/Catalogs/Price Lists. Especially now, with the economy and the scary situation with the Auto Industry here (my company is an auto supplier based in Michigan), many of our product lines have become more expensive.
Living with my parents has been stressing me out. I've mentioned before that my mother is a little bit nutty and I guess since I have moved away my parents stopped sleeping in the same room, and they turned what was my room into an office, so when I moved back... I'm sleeping in the room with the one computer that we all share, that runs like molasses, and that my mom likes to be on late at night. Also, I think I mentioned this before, but my car broke, and I still haven't gotten a new one. My mom has been driving me to work in the mornings and I absolutely fear for my life. She is one of the most horrifying drivers on the road and I consider it a miracle that she hasn't killed anyone yet.
That's another good thing about moving to K-zoo, free public transit for students.
I've recently had a strange sort of falling out with one of my closest friends, which has got me down.
I've been feeling very lonely again, which is nothing new I guess, but I just wish it were easier to meet new people.
I had a lot of stress with my hd_holidays
fic. I was so excited to participate and I had wanted to for the last couple years and it just seems like every possible thing that could have gone wrong, did. I managed to get it in (with some crazy extensions), I just wish I could be more proud of it. The whole thing kind of left me frustrated because of my file issues, and beta issues, and then after re-reading my fic... I'm not even sure I like it. Plus, my person requested humor, and I've been feeling anything but humorous lately.
I don't know. I guess I'm just feeling very blah
about everything lately. Hopefully the move, and living with friends again, and being near my sister and my soon to be nephew will pull me out of this five month long funk.
