Well, it turns out that I finally made it to 18 years old.

Tommorrow (or today, considering it’s 4AM), I will embark on many fun BDay activities such as…
Renewing my driver’s license
Switching my bank account from minor status

Anyway, that’s the only thing that’s new.

14 June 2006

Well, I guess you could say I’m having one of those days. The kind of days that you wish would never happen, the kind you wish you could slam your head into a brick wall about.

One of those type of days.

I woke up today sick and so dizzy I could barely stand. I dragged myself to work at 8 AM and I worked straight until 5:30 PM, holding back potential stomach sickness along the way. Some guy nearly plowed into my car on the way home. I got pulled over by a cop for avoiding the guy who nearly hit me and speeding into the next lane. At least it wasn’t a ticket.

When I got home, I had a message saying my bank account was frozen temporarily. I called up my bank and asked why — apparently my checking account had went 170 something dollars into the red because of a hold on PayPal (which when I talked to the PayPal representative, they said that was an error on somebody’s part because the bank shouldn’t have been alerted; I’m on hold with my bank as we speak.) I have a few checks that will be bouncing if it’s not resolved, so again, I’m waiting patiently.

My PayPal account was also “frozen” until I pay 193 dollars for a chargeback coming from my PayPal account on something I shouldn’t be having to pay back. The PayPal rep said it takes about 75 to 100 days to resolve a dispute, so no PayPal for me. So, until Friday of next week when I can get a paycheck to cover my bank problem, I have my pocket change, a total of $20 in ones and a five. Still, I’m sure that I can get by. I just won’t eat lunch and I’ll borrow some money until then. Further, I hope I can just get it fixed in a few minutes and this was all just a big misunderstanding on the credit card company and my bank and hopefully the person who gave me the money in April without obligation.

Good news is that a person on eBay who I bought over 100 dollars of stuff from last night said it was okay if I paid him with a money order, meaning I can bypass PayPal and not get bad feedback. Other good news is that I got my DS Lite in ala my fancy new raise I got at work. And, I mean, I’ve graduated from school and I’ll be 18 in a short while. Lots to look forward to.

In conclusion, however, today has been a really bad day. And my bank’s waiting music ain’t making it too much better.

Nice hair, self from the past

One thing that I will miss deeply about Midland is the Great Wall, the best Chinese place ever. For under five dollars, I can get lo mein and soup. I mean, c’mon, what a deal. I really really like that place. Although, I wouldn’t mind a sushi place.

Today we have off. Cinco de Mayo (or a snow day, you pick). I filled out a ton of graduation annoucements; they take some time. I also deposited a check. And that’s everything of note.

Currently, I’m pretty happy. If it’s the Chinese food or the day in general, I’m not sure. Maybe it was the ten hours of sleep. I haven’t had that pleasure in a long time. I feel incredibly tired lately. I think my life is busy, although I assume that it’s not really all that action-packed. Rather, I just look at people who have more hectic lives than I do with a sort of mixed confusion as how they are still standing.

I can’t wait to graduate. That was the point of this post. I want to be done — so badly. Almost there. Just a little longer. My grades are falling, but I’ll manage. Or I don’t actually care. We’ll see.

I just want out.

Well, I figured that it was time to finally change the layout up a little. It’s still a work in progress, but it’s pretty much done. The older pages will be incredibly crippled, but at least they work.

I feel sick. It’s not a normal sick. I wake up at night, sweating. Bad dreams, to say the least. I’m tired, from exhaustion, rather than sleep deprevation. I’m not eating tonight.

April is almost over, and that brings some sense of happiness to me. I want to write a letter in May, expressing how I feel towards Dr. Manning, the single most influential teacher that I had the pleasure of learning from. I want to write a lot more, suddenly. It’s odd that I want to write, but the idea has been in my mind for so long that I almost want to get it out.

Yet, I hesitate, blaming the timing, my real life, my future, and my lack of knowledge. If I do write something, how can it be complete when I myself am not complete? That is a huge discrediting factor that has so far stopped me from writing. But maybe I should risk it.

Strangely, for all my thoughts about the future, I don’t know what to say. I’m mixed, that’s for sure.

In other news, we sold the house. Or very close to it. That should be good, but hell for finals and attending to my work. Right now though, I don’t really think much about that, or I try not to. I’m tired. I just want to sleep.

Really always liked how this turned out

Wow. School’s almost over and I’m almost done with this sort of stuff. It’s really been hard for me to try. I mean, this year I’ve barely tried at all. But now since it’s April, school is over for me. It’s done and through. I’m just waiting for my tickets out of here to get finished printing, so-to-speak.

I launched a clothing company, but who knows how that will go. Hopefully well. Still working out the prices and such, but it’s getting closer and closer to being done.

My mom doesn’t want me working past June 30 — I can’t say I blame her. I probably need some time to chill out and get ready for what I’m going to do. I mean, as much as I need the money for all sorts of things, I don’t know if I can handle another repeat of last year (where I was longing for school to start because I was so busy).

It’s a tricky situation. I guess we’ll just have to see how it goes.
