outcast
Monday. 8.29.11 6:58 pm
It's been a week and two days and I feel like an outcast in my own home. If I walk in to the living room, I don't feel welcome. Which also means that I can't go in to the kitchen.

If I stay in the bedroom, there are complaints that I'm keeping myself locked away. I can't win here.

The awkwardness and tension in this house is so thick that you need a steak knife just to penetrate it.

I feel exactly the same way that I felt in Vegas.

That I don't belong.

I want to move again. Seattle has completely lost it's appeal to me. I don't want to be here anymore.

unrelated to me, some exciting news!
Monday. 8.15.11 10:16 am
Do you guys remember back in December/January me asking for you all to pray for my cousin? Her young son was fighting his battle with childhood cancer, but unfortunately lost. He became an angel on January 6, 2011. My cousin's other son kept saying to her that now that Bryce was an angel, he was going to find the perfect brother/sister to replace him.

Well, my cousin is pregnant! I don't know how far along, but it's such exciting news. He/she will never replace Bryce, but they will certainly fill the void. The piece that's missing. My cousin and her family will always think of this child as the blessing Bryce sent them.

I'm so happy for her and her family. Here's to hoping for an uncomplicated pregnancy!

stressed
Friday. 8.12.11 11:48 pm
Things have been kind of stressful lately. I'm not going to go in to too many details, but I wanted to get some of my frustrations out.

This last paycheck was a day short because I took the day off to do the Torchlight Run a couple weeks ago. It's still enough for me to be able to pay my bills, but I could definitely use the extra cash.

Work is pissing me off half the week because they have an idiot filling in the open shift. He's so incredibly dumb that I don't even know how he was hired on in the first place. The other half, I'm working with people who actually know what the fuck their supposed to be doing and I don't have to babysit the entire 8 hours I'm there.

I just found out this morning that Jacob's mom is moving out here. I was hoping that being away from her would do our relationship some good, but we can't even be away for a year before that gets completely thrown out the window. Now we have yet another obstacle to get through. As if a strain on finances and dealing with school and work wasn't enough.

I've really just got way too much on my mind right now. I wish I could escape it all. But I can't. It's just not that easy.

placeholder

This is a placeholder. I want to take about certain things {people at work, moving, finances, stress} but I don't want to type it all up while I'm at work.

So this is holding the place until I can type it up when I get home.

new! ^-^
Sunday. 8.7.11 3:48 am
This is my first entry with my new laptop. I'm still getting used to the keyboard. It's offset from the one that I'm used to because this one has the number pad as well as the normal QWERTY keys. My Dell didn't.

It's a Sony VAIO. I am absolutely in love with this thing. It's amazingly fast. My old one is just that. Old. I had gotten used to having to wait for everything to load once I turned it on, so I would turn it on when I got home from work, but then I would shower so that my computer would be ready by the time I was done.

I can turn this on and in less than a minute, I am able to access the web without any lag or glitches. Nothing. It's basically instant. I've also gotten used to still dealing with Windows XP. Windows 7 is basically standard on all computers now. My Sony also came with a built in webcam. I have yet to use it, but I like the idea that it's there.

I am just simply loving it.

The next step is to buy a new phone. But I'm not sure when that'll happen. Maybe for my birthday.

Speaking of birthdays, today is my mom's. I wasn't able to get her anything, but she's also moving in a week and a half so I'll just wait until she moves before sending anything out. This way I know that she'll get it. I'll also have money by then.

Oh, I also actually backed up my computer this time so that if anything bad happens to it in the future, I am able to reset it back to it's factory settings. A good thing to have even if it isn't needed for a while.

Anywho, I really have nothing else to write about. I actually had received my laptop on Friday, but I only had about an hour to mess around with it before having to be at work. Then from having been up earlier than I was used to, I went to bed early and slept pretty much through until I had to get up for work. So I've had very little time to actually be on the computer. Tonight is really the first opportunity that I've had to write up the entry that I said I would.

I'm just really excited. I'm broke for a while, but that's okay. It was worth it.

Until next time NuTang. . .

stuff
Monday. 8.1.11 10:58 am
This past Saturday I participated in my first 5K. It was a lot of fun, but it really made me realize that I'm out of shape. I knew it before, but I figured I could have finished in less time. It would have been nice to be able to at least jog a majority of the 3 miles as opposed to walking most of it. Next year I will be better prepared.

I got up earlier than normal today and for whatever reason I was feeling rather motivated. I have my second load of wash in the washer now, I've washed most of the dishes {I ran out of room in the dishwasher and on the drying towel} and I cleaned off some of the mold that was seeping down the wall by our bedroom window. There was a lot more than I was expecting, but since it's at the top of the window, I couldn't really reach it too well so I'll probably ask Jacob to clean the rest when he gets home from school. I seriously have never had to experience mold. I've lived in dry climates for the last 7 years and even before that when I lived in FL, it still got hot enough to dry stuff out. It was still humid, but much hotter than here. Also, the location of our apartment means that the sun never hits it. We get the reflection of the sun coming off the adjacent apartments across the way, but nothing directly.

My next step is to vacuum and take the trash out. I wanted to take a break to get some water and sit for a minute since I've been going for the last 2 hours.

After I'm done cleaning, I'll probably play on the Wii some. Jacob's mom sent out her Wii board since it would get more use here than at her house. It was very nice of her to do, though. The cost for shipping probably wasn't too cheap. We got another free TV. This one is a little smaller than our last, but much nicer. Meaning it actually works. The other one crapped out on us. Oh well. One of the downfalls to getting free stuff. Typically its been used so there might be some glitches.

In more exciting news ... I bought a new laptop! I haven't gotten it yet; I only bought it on Friday and standard shipping is 3-5 business days. So hopefully I'll have it by the end of this week. I'm so excited! I've had this laptop since 2006 and it's seen better days. It doesn't run up to par and the memory {or lack there of} and the amount of stuff I have on this computer doesn't exactly help much. It runs well enough for what I need at the moment. I can access the internet and I can usually play videos on Hulu and YouTube. Sometimes, though, it just doesn't want to stream. The new one I'm getting is a Sony Vaio. Different than the Dell that I'm used to, but it was on sale. And Sony is a good brand. I could get it as early as tomorrow, but I'm not holding my breath. I'm hoping for Wednesday at the earliest, Friday at the latest. And unless something happens between now and then, my next entry will probably be from the new laptop.

The one I have now, I'll be sending to my sister when I can afford the shipping costs.

Anywho, I think that's it in the recent happenings of my life.

Until next time NuTang ...
