Icebreaker on Friday went surprisingly well - a ton of people showed up, and we managed not to run out of food despite that, so everything went well. The afterparty was a bit more low-key, as half the people who were supposed to come, didn't, so there were only six of us. We got a bit tipsy and sat around playing Rayman for the Wii anyway. It may have worked out for the best, given my lack of furniture >.> I did, however, take the delivery of a table and four chairs last night, and am getting a bed today (king-size!). Hooray from people moving and getting rid of stuff for free!

Managed to cut back on some of my work commitments, too, so zomg, free time again. Now if only I had my memory card... Although I still have Twilight Princess to finish off.

VNV Nation

...was fucking amazing live. Ronan really knows how to include the audience in the show, which more than makes up for the lack of really showy lights or anything. Plus, it was in a night club, which means a smaller crowd, but a lot more intimate (I shook hands with Ronan Harris!), and you can just let loose and dance (which I did). Songs I remember being played, not in order:

Wish they had played more Futureperfect stuff, but they got a bunch of my favs, so I was ecstatic - guess I'll just have to see them live again ;) Ran into a ton of people I knew, which was a bit surprising, but nice - also got a lift home from someone (thanks, Joey!), which saved me cab money...which I used to buy a button-down instead. What can I say, I've been coveting one for a while now. Got a bunch of pictures, too - will post the ones that came out later.

Mayhem and Other Things

Got some of my scheduling worked out - one game ending in a few weeks, and we hired someone new at work, so in a few weeks my schedule will be better. I'm also getting better about actually getting work done on time. This still leaves very little time for blogging, though, as some people may have noticed. Been getting lots of stuff done for the club, though, which is good.

In school news, my vertebrate anatomy lab sucks, my cell bio lab is awesome, and one of my profs has encouraged us to lick toads. Being a biology student is a strange life.

Why Is My Life Crazy?

So, I actually made a schedule of my day this afternoon, and realized I have appalling little free time before eleven o'clock, which is what's been leading to me not sleeping enough. It's definately starting to take it's toll, though, as I can tell my depression is coming back - I've been down for the last two weeks, and I'm started to feel really distanced from most of my friends. It's not their fault I'm so busy, but it's still a little upsetting when everyone goes off to do things without me. I'm going to see what I can do about cutting my schedule down, though.

The crazy landlady drama is also apparently not over, as a scholarship cheque has been mailed to that address, as nobody bothered to double-check with me if that address was still correct. I really, really don't want to deal with her, but it's five hundred dollars, so I have to. I'm also waiting on some packages that haven't showed up here yet - should have been shipped directly here, so I guess they're stuck at the border.

Somehow, despite having internet again, I haven't had time to post at all. Classes aren't bad so far, I may do a run down later. I'm finally starting to feel like I have a home again, instead of the somewhat transitory state I've been living in for the last year. I bought a set of pots and pans yesterday, as well as dishes, food, and two big fluffy pillows, and I'm getting some left over furniture from some of Jon's relatives who are moving. Work is a little crazy right now, as we're understaffed - hopefully they're hiring new people. The end of this week is Clubs Days, so we've been running around like crazy cleaning the office and finishing up the paint job on the lockers. I may post photos later, as I'm really happy with how they've come out. Games are going well, although I don't think I'm playing Ally up enough. I've been kind of of brain dead the last few weeks anyway, though, which isn't helping my performance.

Also, abysmally stupid things I've done in the last week:
1) Slept through my alarm the second week of classes, and wound up missing my first two classes
2) Accidentally mailed a package to myself - I cut out an address label for the reciever to mail it back to me with my stuff in it, along with the reciever's label, and taped the wrong one on. And then got confused when it showed up in the the state I had mailed it in.
3) Skipped a class to pick up my new acne prescription...and then left the bag laying in the club room tonight after game.

Hopefully this stupid streak will end when I sleep more, and learn to say no to things like going out for tea after game, at eleven pm. It was very good tea, but now it's two am D:

Drama Updates

So apparently the stupid isn't coming from my roommate, it's coming from my landlady via my roommate, because she hasn't bothered to contact me. It's escalated, and if it looks like I won't get my security deposit, I'm going to say 'fuck you, I never signed a rental agreement' so I don't have to pay any of the bullshit cleaning charges she seems to be trying to slap on us. I'm sick of all this crap.

Former roommate is going to give me an aneurysm, I think. Seriously, I spent five hours cleaning that kitchen. It will take you _fifteen minutes_ to run a sponge along the inside of the fridge and grab these cobwebs I supposedly missed while wiping down the entire stove, fridge outside, floor, baseboards, and windows, along with all the corners and top edges of the room. Christ. I have more important things to do like, oh, I don't know, go to work? Actually unpack my belongings? I was civil in my e-mail back, but I am this close to a scathing response if she e-mails me back.

Thank god she only has my school e-mail address, and not my cell or my new house address.
