dopey mcforgettypants

I forgot my phone today.

I have decided to stop bitching about work. So I am tied to a cotton tree - it is not like anyone but myself put me here. I am, despite the effort involved, able to get two people's shit done, and only make a few minor mistakes. Everyone here is happy with me, but not afraid at all to continue to add to and refine the mountain of responsibilities on my plate. It has been a testing period, and I am 2/3 of the way through it almost. They want to see how broad my shoulders are, and how much weight they can pile on before my spine snaps. I have proven my resilliance, but I will be dammned if I am going to break, or consider the load I am bearing as "normal".

House-sitting this weekend, helping rakshaka move into his new place (if he figures out/coordinates transport times/places on Sunday), and probably doing work on Monday, despite the holiday. I found out yesterday, that though we get two president holidays, we get nothin at Easter. Not that I really care - I kinda like having two three-day weekends close together.

In other news, the realty agency maintaining my apartment are total liars. When renewing my lease recently, I reviewed my terms before re-upping. They state clearly that they pay for heat and hot water. I have long suspected that I am paying for my own hot water (since, y'know, there is a hot water heater in my kitchen). I got the electric bill for last month and it was more than 100$ than it usually is. Only thing that chanegd last month? It got fuckin cold, so I turned on the radiators.

Hooray for electric heat. I was basically running three space heaters for a couple weeks there.

I got my first rejection letter from the seminary applications I submitted in December. I should take the GRE. Maybe I'll just go back to school for something else part time, after I've been here a year.

Somethin's gotta give.

back to school, hide from re-al-i-ty...
hehe. it's just the season for going back to school on strength of the unlikely hope that it'll magically make life better afterwards, isn't it? nyu apparently lets you get a JD *and* a phd in philosophy at the SAME TIME, and in exchange they give you $18k a year to live on... SIGN ME UP!! took the LSATS on saturday. GRE next, baby. aaaaaaaaw yeah.


ps. livejournal is obsessed with making sure i'm a human. i think they're on to me.

i'm on the quest

the GRE is cake. don't bother studying. when you sign up they mail you a CD with 3 practice tests and a list of things you need to know - which i'm positive you already do. take the tests, sleep well the night before, and you'll rock out.

roswell's slow on processing applications, but if i hear anything, i'll let you know. and i strongly recommend bitching to your boss. i avoided this tactic for years, thinking that it would make me look bad, and then i realized that it was making me look like a chump. you have to tell them what you want to get what you want. of course, you might be a little new, but the "when you make me do the work of two, you get the quality of half a person" line might make them reconsider...

whatever happens, i know you'll be ok. this is a just a blip on the proverbial radar, as the cheesy sayings go.

thanks for the blip
miss you guys

somethin's definitely gotta give. we need to go for a walk!

Thanks for pimping my move. Right now I'm a bit confused, other than train. I'm going to be driving home a trucks from work on Saterday night, and late at that. I have to go get Danielle, drop her off at the new place then switch up my car.

It's going to be an interesting day, aside from moving, there will be a couch delivery, a dining room set delivery, a bed delivery and cable installation
