So yes, I am in fact, NOT dead. I know, I know... I haven't posted anything in ages. Honestly, this whole business of a social life is annoying and intriguing.
I haven't drawn anything in months. I did a sketch last night, but it was awful. I also keep forgetting to bring my pen tablet out with me, so I've made NO progress on anything else. I also haven't written anything. I'm a romance writer at heart, and having a fulfilling (?) love life kills my urge to write and fantasize.
As of recently I'm shocked with myself. I've never been in a position where disclosing my romantic exploits on the internet wouldn't be acceptable, but lo and behold, here I am. I think the most G-rated part of it was being contacted by my ex. And that was a catastrophe and a half. I'm now hoping he never calls again. Haha. I also solidly reaffirmed that open relationships SUCK; monogamy for me all the way.
School is killing me. 15 units is BAD. I'm taking more Japanese, intro to business, computer information systems, and precalculus. Business and precal are easy. I sleep in math and flirt in business class. (Me? Flirting? WTH?!) Japanese is easy enough as well and the people are wonderful, it's just tedious with homework. It's the computer class that kills me. It's all online. I walked in with basic knowledge of Microsoft Office and experience with HTML and CSS, and yet, I'm struggling. There is also some sort of intricate research paper due each week, and nothing is posted ahead of time, so forget working ahead. That means I always get assignments when I'm already in a time crunch, instead of being able to work ahead when I'm free to do so. In fact, I should be coding three HTML pages due tomorrow, but I'm on here instead.
I currently have a bigger social circle than I've EVER had. I'm not sure what to do with it. I also seem to be habitually missing church. Looks like I'm going to hell for that, and a few other things. Jeez, hope I don't die before I have the chance to set myself straight. I tried to get drunk New Years and found out that I have a VERY abnormally high tolerance for alcohol. That means I drank my weight in vodka and nothing happened. At all. Guess who the new designated driver will be?? Haha. I also failed my behind the wheel driver's test yesterday. That was miserable; I cried. But it's okay. I'm coming back for vengeance and will get my licence. Over spring break I had my first experience with a club and sneaking out. That was fun, but failed to impress me. It won't be happening again. Not because I'm so morally superior, but because it was lackluster.
As far as my health, well... The insurance still hasn't come through, even though I'M paying for it. I have no clue what's wrong inside my belly. I get sharp pains once in a while, but not bad enough for me to be hindered. I've been eating better and got a gym membership 2 weeks ago. I already managed to hurt my knee while on the treadmill. (Take it slow, oh fat and out-of-shape Aster.) These changes have actually made a huge difference already. I'm slowly losing some weight and my body just feels better. It also helps my stomach just a bit.
Work is good too. I work quite a few hours, get just enough money to do what I need to. Bought myself a nice new phone, pay bills to my parents now (everything but rent), pay for all my own school and transport and clothing and misc needs. I've worked every holiday but Valentine's. I brought candy baskets in for my coworkers on Easter, and that was fun.
In short, I'm doing okay. Some days are amazing, while others are completely awful. I figure it all evens out in the end to a flat-line. I'm crossing my fingers for summer, hoping that I don't get too bogged down with work and summer classes. I wonder how many summer classes I'm allowed to take? I want to make sure I get to a four year college soon, this junior college business is not for me.
Anyway, hope everyone reading this is doing well. Thanks for watching my page, even though nothing exciting seems to happen. Again, I haven't forgotten my favorite corner of the internet, I just have no time to visit. I know I keep saying this, and it is probably an empty phrase to you, but I mean it. Have a wonderful time of it. Buh-bye!
