Mira's Venting

Sep. 1st, 2007 04:26 pm State Fair, WHOO!

Last Thursday (day before yesterday) Karl and I headed out to Pueblo to the Colorado State Fair.

In other news, I'm currently obsessed over Elder Scrolls: Oblivion. I mean seriously obsesses. I want to be playing right now. Karl would be vying for time on the game (installed on my PC as his can't handle the concentrated awesome that is Oblivion) except he's got Metroid Prime Three for his Wii and I promised him that he could cheat on me with Samus.

Aug. 20th, 2007 04:21 pm First Day of Classes

I'm retaking Cell Bio and Genetics... I'm determined to have that bio minor. I may or may not have to retake creative writing which may or may not be a bad thing. I also have a Soc. class (Race, Class, and Gender) and a math class (HA, I'm taking easy math).

Aside from classes, I have work here at the Narrow Gauge Newsstand and it's not exactly thrilling, but I have fun and it's sort of rewarding. At the very least, I like all of my coworkers and they tell me that I trained fast which boosted my ego a good bit.

Karl and his roommate, Joe, have been including me in most if not all of the house goings-on so I'm not feeling nearly as isolated as I did a couple weekends ago.

Ah, livin' the good life.

You might think I'm joking, but I'm not...life is good

Jul. 13th, 2007 04:54 pm Life, as I know it

Posting from job! I'm working at the narrow gauge newsstand and it's dead right now.

All things considered, I'm still in a rut financially. I did end up with the tiny house, but I don't know how I'm going to pay any of my debts, including next months rent.

Karl's cool roommate, Alex, is moving out today and a new kid is coming in. The good news is he gets a bigger room now. The new volunteer'll be stuck in the tiny side room, I know how he feels.

I've been feeling a little bit unloved lately as my friends all fall silent, I got a lecture via email from my best friend, and my mother was being......irksome.....on the phone. I still have Karl, though, so I'm doin' fine.

So, I've been all over town it seems. My most promising housing prospect is an actual house. It's $350/mo with a $300 deposit. City utilities are paid, I would have to cover electricity I think and the internets. I should just barely be able to afford the first month's rent and the deposit. The issue is that the place is unfurnished. Hmm....cardboard furniture is in now, I think.

All the other places I've looked at were.....phenomenally expensive (try $450 a month for tiny, tiny room...seriously, a room) or had some flaw....such as a little old lady for a roommate....(I have nothing against little old ladies, but I sure would be living with somebody who I had nothing in common with)....or being twenty miles out of town.

I also need to fix my car and my computer, but those things are taking a backseat financially. I did, however, invest twenty bucks in reactivating my cell phone.

I called my bank in Illinois and paid my first month's payment on my $3000 loan. I also spent a while on hold as they figured out why my account was overdrawn while I was in Japan, not using it. I got a $25 refund....whoo-hoo? I need a lot more than that. What I need is a steady supply of income.

Jobs are.....elusive..... I've applied for about a half a dozen of them. I'm hoping to get this secretarial/animal caretaker job. It's in Monte Vista, but it practically listed all the skills I listed on my resume. I'll go back to the workforce center tomorrow and probably apply for a couple more.

Other things that I've taken care of....sort of. I stopped by the school and worked out a payment plan for Japanese Travel and Culture II (ie my trip to Japan) which is basically I have until July 15th to get $600 and until August 15th to get the remaining half. I was bounced around for a while with that one, but I also got my pin and registered for Fall Classes....which were mostly filled up, so I didn't get my ideal schedule, but it'll work, I suppose. That and I talked to my family, both my parents, grandparents, brother, and aunt to let them know I'm still breathing. I dropped some hints at being broke.....maybe they'll come through for me again, hopefully.

That's kind of a short novelization of my life roundabout now.....hmmm....sorry for the length those of you who read this.....which number about nil......:P

So now I have to find an apartment as well as a job. Oh well, I figured this place was temporary. I just didn't figure on how temporary. :P

Anyway, I moved all of my things into storage and I'm living out of a couple bags of clothes and toiletries.

Apartment searching was pretty bust. I waited 2 (two) days after the ads were updated in the classifieds before I started calling around. After all, I was helping Karl move into his new house and job hunting came first, I figured. However, after just two days all of the cheaper apartments were pretty filled....bummer.

I'm leaving right now to check out a house outside of town.

Here's a meme that I took a break for.

Jun. 16th, 2007 11:33 pm Home?

Just got back from Japan a couple days ago and now I need to find a job...badly.

First, I have to write a report on my ten day trip. I've made a little headway.....a very little headway. Anyway, I got my pictures developed and at least a couple of them turned out. I shouldn't have a problem writing fifteen pages. Since I owe copies to all the people who gave me financial help I'll be printing off and sending out a lot of copies of this thing so I better make it good....

Money troubles.......that's all I'll say about that other than they're not dire, just troublesome and I need the aforementioned job.

At the moment I'm feeling drained and friendless.

I'm sure things aren't as bad as they seem......I just need to get some shit together......and soon.

Apr. 13th, 2007 06:50 pm OMG, I'm posting a post!

Yeah, for anyone who cares, which I believe that number to be exactly zero, I'm updating my livejournal.

So, nothing much has changed, being that I'm still a college student and I'm still making a mess of my life and hoping that things'll sort out later. I don't know what I'm going to do with this massive student debt, but I know I have to sit and accrue it for now and I'll deal with it later, because if I stop now to think things out I'll end up dropping everything. I try to remain chipper...I'm an optimist after all...but my parents freaking out doesn't help my own freaking out.

Anyway, here's a meme......be happy

I_Should_Weigh_219_lbsCollapse )

and at 5 foot 3, this meme suggests I should be fat and jolly...you know what, bring on the creme puffs

P.S. my phone is broke....and never had I wanted to make so many phone calls
