Hi, all! I just wanted to give you an update on my life and happenings. So, I have a job now.
I'm working for my mom's fiance. I just basically do whatever he needs me to do. And so far it has been cleaning out his barn. Omg it has been disgusting. Basically his son was partying there with his friends for like 2 years straight, when he was in college a few years ago. They totally trashed the basement. One room was almost a foot of beer bottles, and when it was cleared out, omg the smell. THE SMELL. I don't know WHAT they did in that room, but good gawd it smelled nasty. There was definitely a positive side to this though (other than making delicious money), I discovered plenty of treasures in the rest of the basement (and don't worry, I was given permission before taking them for my own). Some of the stuff included an SNES console/games, records, electric guitar, PC software, microphones, speakers, etc. I'm just rambling about this now, but it feels good to be working for money (unlike my co-op last year). It'll definitely help with college in the fall.
I have really unfortunate news. We're going to be losing our home. My mom just can't afford it anymore. It's complicated. It really sucks. I'm not sure when we'll have to leave, but it might be as soon as June (hopefully after my birthday).
This next story I haven't brought up yet, since I decided to just let it go for a while. One of my friends last year had a meltdown during college. As it turns out he was diagnosed with a form of psychosis (I was previously told it was schizophrenia, but that's not the case I guess). He had some brain tissue damaged, and he's on medication now. He kind of blocked me out of his life for about 4 months there, only recently he added me back on facebook, and I hung out with him about a week ago. It was really nice to see him again. I can't blame him for what he did, since he wasn't on his medication, etc. I'm still worried about him though, he's taken up smoking.
One of the few facebook games I play is getting shut down soon. It's called Pet Society. I've invested a lot of time playing it. I'm pretty angry.
Just a more personal topic. A while back I went on my first date ever (I think it was August). And that was when I realized I wanted to be single for now. It's been pretty great for a bit, but now I've been feeling lonely. I started to wonder if I should try looking for a boyfriend again, but then it hit me. Single =/= lonely. You CAN be single and be totally content with your bachelor lifestyle by having companionship in friends, etc. I shouldn't get a boyfriend just to fill that void of loneliness. But my friends haven't been as available as they used to be. So, I guess I just gotta cope for a while until I get a chance to meet new people in college, broaden my horizons, etc. Obviously I'm not going to stay single forever, but I just genuinely want to be right now.
Ciao for now!
