I am not quite sure what to say accept that I don't feel all too artistic lately, in fact I feel pretty flat. It is a wondrous thing to back to work and school though. Winter Break was killer.
I spent most of it home either in bed or spring cleaning. I am pretty sure I am a hoarder (or at least have hoarding tendency), I threw out several garbage bags of trash and junk, and I took several more to the thrift store just from my little bedroom. I cannot believe how much stuff I have accumulated over the years. I kept a lot of it on the premise that perhaps it would be useful later on. It's gone and the room is clean and uncluttered for the most part but it is still not done.
Also during the break, Mikey got me watching Star Trek. I've been watching the original series and oh my god why I have never watched this show before.
School started on the 20th for me. It feels good to be back. I am taking calculus, professional communications, and a social science seminar about child poverty. All is good so far; professors seem decent and subject matter is not bad at all.
I went back to work on the 20th as well (oh the joys of a campus job). It has been a chaotic first week with students being added and dropped but over all I love my job; I especially love the part where I am not home all the damn day. Although, I am not much of a social person, so all the people are little overwhelming. Oh and I had someone come in today asking if we offered the CATs (they meant SAT's) and another asking where they are at (my college is a tiny one building, one story community college and they had just walked in the door); these people make me feel like a genius somedays.
On the topic of being not so artsy feeling, I just feel flat, dull, and uninspired. Mikey bought me this beautiful DSLR a few months back to get my photography booming and it's just sitting in my closet. I feel absolutely terrible about it. I feel like I have let everyone down with this flatness I am feeling. I have a few unfinished writings sitting on my hard drive as well. For the most part I feel like a failed human being but I suppose I am just stressed.
The devil is stilling suing Mikey for his home and is taking her sweet, sweet time to get back to her lawyer. I feel as though she is just trying to buy her time and live in the house as long as she possibly can. The fact is that her name has never been on the deed, the house was never intended to be hers. Long story short, is that Mike and his dad Father bought the house together, his dad died unexpectedly, and now she is claiming rights to the home. During the winter break she proposed a settlement to sell the house and split the profit 50/50 which Mike and I readily agreed to that, and just last week we found out that she changed her mind on the settlement. It's infuriating to say the least. I think the part makes me the feel the worst is that is at the casino almost daily playing the slots and is just having a giant kegger, while Mike and I are living together in a tiny bedroom with barely enough money to make it through the month.
One last thing. At first I did not mind the changes to the layout that dA made, but now with the official dA app out I absolutely despise everything they have done. dA doesn't feel like home anymore but quite frankly I have no where else to go. No other website has ever been quite like dA so I stay. dA was never meant to be another facebook. I have been checking dA much less now, but I am still log on every here and there.
Well I think I have some chinese take out in the fridge calling my name, so I got to go.
