Thanks! I’ll check it out :)
How do people go through school with a child and work? I’m struggling so much emotionally. I finally have a car, but it’s a standard and I stall all the time. I’m getting better but yesterday was the first time I got honked at after the light was green for like two seconds.
My job sucks ass. I have 4 different supervisors with two only looking after me and when they’re not there, there’s one who for some reason hates me. She wanted to write me up for missing work because Celia was sick, even though she could easily see I tried to get someone to cover me the day before in our email folder. She sent me on break only to not cover my station so when I came back everything was built up. When she makes the schedule, she puts me on the worst thing always…
And then there’s classes where one is online and the homework is graded extremely unfairly. There’s my accounting class where the homework is extensive, but it helped things finally click for me. So I thought I was ready come test time, but once I saw the test it was all on concepts and things like what would not be readily available information for investors. NOTHING like the homework, which was all debit/credit, balance sheet, etc stuff. My speech class is easy; I have a 95 somehow even though I hate public speaking. I’m not bad at it, just really don’t like it.
I had a dream last night that I had a panic attack and passed out right on the floor at work for a good hour and nobody helped me once I came out of it.
Having Celia is the easy part, it’s just I have homework, laundry, dishes, cooking, cleaning to do when she’s here so I can’t give her all the attention she wants/I wish I could give her.
I wish there were two of me. Or that I could just have a nice job, save up money, have enough for food always, and then just take Celia and travel the world.
Just got a new book, The Ocean at the End of the Lane, and finished it. It was amazingly creepy, not what I expected, but I really liked it.
I need a big book though…one I won’t blow through. I really tried to give Crime and Punishment a shot but I just couldn’t get into it. Book hunt tonight!
Celia calls my new standard a “skanderd” and when we drive in it, “it goes BUMP!” because mama stalls a lot, and “it’s pretty hard to drive”
Less than a week ago our temps fell below freezing, literally. Highs maxed in the 40s and 50s. Now this weekend is supposed to be in the 80s… Our trees have already been turning colors, and summer’s just barging back in. Silly Maine, what the fuuck
constantly torn between “if it’s meant to be, it will be” and “if you want it, go get it”
This post gives me a level of happiness that I’m just not used to.
its back on my dash.
i always think of france when i hear this.
DON’ KNOW WHY
reblogging for the above gif that perfectly encapsulates the song somehow
Meet Zara, my new ‘02 Honda Accord! It’s a standard so if you see this car stalling all over Orono, you know it’s me. Go ahead and honk if you’d like, but just know it will make me panic :)
your initials must be UAG because i want u to STOP
