I haven't really had much to post about over the last few months, but now that there's actually quite a bit of stuff happening I feel it's time.
Living with someone new is hard. But I'm getting used to it. (Sharing a computer is hard when you're so used to having it all to yourself.) We're trying to get a house that's a couple of miles down the road now that we've gotten the payout from mom's life insurance. Hopefully it'll come through and by winter we'll be in a toasty new house (and I'll have my compy back.)
I was hoping to go to a tech school here last month, but I missed getting in. So I got kinda depressed and tried looking for a job which never panned out. But I got the news about 15 minutes ago that a spot opened and I can start Monday. Classes are in the afternoon from 12:15 to 3:15.
We did get bad news last night though. My (almost) uncle's sister had a stroke and is in the hospital in Indiana (she was on her way to Michigan.) They left last night at about nine to go and see her. They're planning on being back by Monday for work and everything.
I still miss Mom. I think about her at random times. It's been rough sometimes. I'm so used to her coming home at five and then us cooking together and then talking about random stuff. I wish I had spent more time that was just us.
Lighter side of things... I'm totally and completely addicted to House
. Why did I not watch this sooner?! It's like someone crawled into my brain and made a show just for me. I also saw a bit of the last Supernatural
season. It was pretty good. I wish it was in syndication somewhere so I could catch the earlier seasons. The new Heroes
season looks awesome (though considering season two... just about anything looks awesome.) How I Met Your Mother
is making me super happeh since my ship since the beginning is almost canon! Whoo!
I've been watching a lot of movies lately. The Dark Knight
was awesome, but a part of it just didn't click with me. I felt Iron Man
was the better superhero movie this summer (of course my longstanding love of RDJ could be clouding things there.) Speed Racer
was kind of crap. It was worth it for Rain and Patrick from Coupling
Also I can't stop going to scans_daily
. Like at all. It calls to me.
