Of long weekends and illness....
So I'm sick. This seems to be a trend lately and I think all the school stress has annihilated my immune system. This is really craptastic, though, because I have a sore throat, a possible fever, and a nasty pressurized nasal cavity - feels like a sinus infection, only worse. I might have the flu.
I had an interesting weekend though, I suppose. I was able to kick back and relax a fair amount seeing as I got snowed in at my hometown until Monday afternoon. The snowstorm itself was lovely though and that kind of weather always makes me want to curl up with a book and some hot cocoa.
I also got to sit in on an xbox session with my brother and some of his buddies, one of which was quite drunk. I ended up on a mic as well, so I could chit-chat. Monumentally amusing, to say the least. I haven't laughed quite like that in a while now. And there's something quite zen about sitting there watching people shoot each other on Call of Duty.
I picked some new stuff up at Walmart and the dollar store as well, because I was running low on some essential toiletries. I needed new shampoo, body wash, shower puffs, and I found myself craving some form of bubble bath solution.
The trip to Walmart was a bit more interesting. They had some cute shirts on clearance and seeing as I don't really own t-shirts at all, I invested a bit.
I cut the sleeves off the bow crop top because the only size left was S and the sleeves were too tight. So a little improv on something that was only $5.
I needed a new notebook for my creative writing pursuits. This composition notebook with stripes was 97 cents, and the poster sitting next to it is a Joker image from Arkham Asylum:
In less pleasant news, I recently discovered that I owe my university $742 in unpaid tuition costs. I guess my courses were a little pricier this semester. Rawr. So now I'm in the process of trying to snag a job and I applied tonight (after haphazardly tossing my resume back together) at a local thrift/consignment shop. If I don't get a call from them this week then I'll start applying with random jobs on campus. I need to pay this shit off so I can register for next year at some point.
I suppose it couldn't hurt to have a job nowadays anyhow. The money will be nice, that's for sure.
Hey! Maybe I should put a donate button up - if any of you lovely folks have extra funds sitting in your bank account I could certainly use them. ^_^
