Next Saturday I'm going to my first-ever concert to see Metallica!

And then 1 month from then I get to go visit my family in the US, good lord how I miss them and my country lol (mostly food, like comfort foods lol) My little sis is coming to visit at the same time too, and we're going to the Carolina Renaissance Festival! I love the RenFest, I went every year while I was living in NC with the exception of 1 year when we waited to the last weekend and it was raining miserably the whole day, and on top of that my mom didn't -want- to go because people smoke openly there, so we went to the movies and mall instead. So yeah, excited to go again, visited last year at RenFest time and went with an old work friend. :)

Also my kitten that I hand-raised from a week old is now over 3 months old, and he's a big healthy bundle of crazy energy, so that's good news too!

Peas out!

Well done, 4br4! Congratz!

Good news, everyone! Dae is finally getting a puppy! Hopefully! We've not seen it yet! I want to see it before I commit to buying it! But it is the first step to fulfilling my lifelong dream!

And also: I am excited about coding again (which probably means there could be some new pixel work involved as well :) )!!

Why else would I spend my lunchbreak on googling for tips and tutorials??

... more good news, which was needed after finding the bathroom flooded this morning, due to the workers on the roof NOT COVERING THE AIR VENT and it RAINING HARD. (Okay, I should take that to the other thread...)

GOOD NEWS: I was lucky enough to be asked if I wanted to take a place in a course due to a last minute cancellation! And I really wanted that! It's an awesome course! And I was going to try and get a place again in the Spring! Because ... we are getting a PUPPY on the day the course starts! Because I wasn't going to get a place, now, was I?

... so. Anyway. They invited me, even though I am sure they could have picked someone in front of my on the list. So. Good news.

so my family is crazy poor right now, mostly because i am unable to work
( just had my fourth oral surgery in three months )
so, we couldn't afford internet and cable this month. it all got turned off.

BUT MY DOWNSTAIRS NEIGHBORS ARE SAINTS
i knocked on their door and asked if they'd mind me using their wireless
and considering that when they moved in i got both of the girls jobs at my work at the time
we're relatively friendly and stuff in a neighborly sort of way
SO THEY SAID YES AND NOW I'M BACK, BABY!

i can't tell you how excited i am
when you're a disabled twenty-two year old
YOU REALLY NEED YOUR INTERNETS

We were supposed to get them done last week but the photographer got into a car accident (she's okay btw).

Good news: I have a job again, yay

Bad news: I broke one of my back teeth and have absolutely nothing to pay for it with. I'm kind of unsure what to do at this point :oops:

Okay maybe good news? I'm not really sure?

A while back, I don't know if anyone remembers me posting about it, but I went on a few dates with a friend from Anime Club when I was in college. It never really went anywhere, and one or two were really awkward because I think I put too much pressure on myself and I scared myself into being terrible and small talk.

Anyway, it all started only a few weeks before graduation, and he got a job in Colorado right after, so I didn't push much to pursue things and we haven't talked in month.

Then sometime last week I was talking to co-workers about relationship stuff, and suddenly the next day I get a text from College Guy asking how I've been since we graduated. We've small talked a bit through texts, mainly about movies. Funnily, we touched on the weather (apparently Colorado gets tornados?), and food places we miss. Neither of us are big horror movie fans, but he went and saw Crimson Peak because Guillermo del Toro, and with his review of it I've decided to go ahead and give it a try myself next week.

He's even admitted that he sucks at remembering texts in general, though xD, so it's kinda been sporadic? I'm trying not to text too much and be too...clingy? You know? There's a part of me, though, that really wants to jump into relationship talk and maybe see if a long distance thing is possible. But another part says to just take it easy and casual for a few months and see how well the texting thing keeps up before talking relationships.

But especially with the timing of his text (right after relationship-talk, remember), I keep wondering if it's a sign that I should try and I'm basically being given a second chance?

GET IT SHIX

Hell yeah second chances happen for a reason. I'd say if you're thinking about it, it never hurts to try. Good luck in your romantic endeavors

@Keke thank you snugglebunny! I hate it though so I'm hoping to find a new better paying job while I'm working this one :oops:

Did you figure out what was going to happen with your broken tooth? :( That sounds so painful. Maybe your dentist's office will take payments???

Oohh gosh yeah I forgot about that, thank you for asking ♥. So, I had completely shattered a quarter of my tooth and they had to take out the filling that had been there and replace the filling, rebuild the side of my tooth and crown it. :oops: They wanted full payment that day, but my credit card is uh... yeah. So my mum paid for it. I have to pay her back along with my bills and I'm still trying to figure that out.
But hey the silver lining is that my tooth is now nice and pain free! haha

Today is Subway's buy-a-sub-and-30oz-drink-get-a-free-sub day! So, if you haven't done it, get one, already! I had a 6oz so that's happy.

I woke up yesterday with a horrible head cold (boo), but today I'm feeling a lot better AND my mom brought me Mucinex which should clear up most of the gunk for me. It's a good thing! I'm sitting up and dolling, which is way more than I could do yesterday.

Today at derby training we were playing A Team Roster vs not roster, I'm still new and play for the B team so this is usually carnage so I take the small victories. The floor was slippy so I practiced my powerslides (slide being key yay) and did that well, I made it passed 2 A team players when I had to jam instead of getting stuck entirely (though ideally I need to make it passed all 4...), and I'm learning to dominate the inside our outside lines because my legs are so damned long! (I'll take any advantage)

I'll say I'm doing pretty ok for not even a year skating. :P

Oh and I drew things and finished my NTD after I struggled with which abstract piece to work with yesterday so party?
