Oi. After… what, four hours of stressin’, I think, I finally have the article assignment finished. It’s not as if I intended to leave it to the last second… no, I wanted to do it this weekend. Unfortunately, this weekend was filled with other things such as German, emo, and making falls which COULD have been put back to a later date, but you know what? I wanted the damn things to be done, so I did it. Back to the topic, though, neither is it that the assignment was particularly difficult… the only problem was that it just started off badly. My first area of research turned up nothing… by which I mean, turned up useless articles which I did not find out were utterly useless until I sat down four hours ago. So I had to start over again with a new topic, with major printer problems (which just fucked me off after having so many Acrobat problems earlier today with the lappy). And on top of all the technical problems was the fact that I am more than likely coming down with the creeping crud that has been going around campus AND home. I’m tired, dizzy, my throat burns, and my head isn’t too nice, either…
So yes, I was (and am) quite a mess. Thank holy lovin’ fuck I can come home and stress and panic and cry and wail and get nice, calm, caring support from the Kevbot. I went from freaking out to the point of nearly flipping into a nervous breakdown to being on the ball (mostly, save for my goldfish-like attention span). Gotta love that. Gotta gotta. Gotta love random flwrs, too. If there was ever a day I needed lillies, today was that very day. It may be by accident that he always hits it when I REALLY need the cheering up… but I’m going to say it’s intuition anyway ;P
But all is done, and I am finally satisfied. I can now devote tomorrow’s break to catching up on Micro. Should also probably see if there’s still a desk position available at the OUTsource… I need to get those four hours in… and desking would do it.
Other news? I got a wicked bitchin’ new monitor… a nice 22″ widescreen dealie. My original plan was to get two 17″s for a dual set-up, but meh. This wound up being cheaper. And it is fantastic! Also fantastic, my ThinkGeek order came in the mail today. I know have CAMP SPOONFORKNIFE. Why the fuck do I need that, you might ask? Cos of tuna, duh. Also nabbed the Ladies’ T-Qualizer, OMG PWNIES, and a SpazzStick. Party!
