Warning: Pointless bitching ahead. Feel free to skip this one.
Not that things have been particularly bad, but they haven’t exactly been faboo lately either. I just seem to be on a bit of a streak of less than great luck with things these days and feel the need to have a short piss & moan session, and put them out to the universe in general as a formal notice of my complaint with the situation.
So without further ado, a general list of things that suck in my world lately:
-Eating practically nothing but two medium pizzas and 2L of Coke over the last weekend. I feel positively toxic.
-Having both potential roommates bail on me. As nice as living alone is, it wasn’t really in the budget for another 6 months or so. Also sucking will be making my old roommate pay her half of the rent for December (her own fault for not giving notice until November 5th – but nothing either of us really expected).
-Burning my left index finger by draining pasta directly onto it.
-The resulting dressing for the burn, since it means my finger can only bend at the knuckle, not at either joint – which makes my primarily data entry job a bit challenging.
-The knee pain I get from not having exercised all week. Upon the advice of many doctors and physiotherapists, I have shitty knees. They aren’t gimpy or weak, I’m just prone to pain akin to knitting needles being shoved under my kneecaps as my muscles condition. I have two choices – sit around and get fat, or exercise through the pain – which eventually goes away. The choice is clear, but it still sucks.
-Reinstalling all my peripherals and programs onto the finally fixed desktop PC. Between the two computers, I’ve now done 3 complete reinstalls in as many months. It’s just tedious and annoying.
-Putting stuff on ebay. Again, tedious and annoying – but necessary to both clean out my closets and garner some extra Christmas cash.
-Not sleeping through the night. This whole waking up for 20 minutes every other hour all night long each and every night without fail thing is getting really old really fast. I don’t think it’s going to quit any time soon, seeing as stress tends to increase at this time of year. However, I’m still in denial that it’s a problem again, and will likely refuse to resort to medication for another 5 weeks or so. Actually – that’s not really true. I’m too busy/lazy to go to the doctor’s again before I have to – which is when I’ll deal with it.
-Realizing that as much as I try to convince myself otherwise, I really do need a haircut/colour this weekend or early next week.
