With the closure of the scrapbooking store, I am also no longer on its design team. Now, I'm just figuring out what to do next.

Part of this repeats this post and this post, but some of it is new.

It's a little long, so I put it under a cut. Not all of you will find the information useful, but you might know someone that will. Please pass on the info you think might help.

I had hoped to have a bunch of things done this week but I do not. Not that any of you have a clue what I'm talking about because I'm trying to keep it all a surprise, but I am bummed so I'm venting anyway. There are several things I had hoped to have done by the end of September but was not able to and have had to keep pushing it back and I will have to push it back again another week because it looks like I will have no time to work on any of it this week. There is simply no way to work it in. Also I am sick and possibly broke my toe. I am having problems with the gal I'm babysitting for, and now babysitting everyday but Wed. I got roped into going to the funeral on Friday and my monitor is still doing that weird thing that I can't even really describe what the problem is but my aunt is going to took at it after the funeral on Friday. Until then I am kind of ignoring it because my computer still works perfectly fine other then that and I am out of ideas of what to do.

If I'm lucky though maybe I can get through all of my boxes and get that done instead. Yes I have been home for 8 months and I am still living out of boxes. That should take some stress off everyone if I can do that.

Honestly though all I really want to do is finish the painting I'm working on and do some scrapbooking.

Since you have been patient and listened to my rant I bring you blogthings I found on my computer when I was going through my files:
more creepy accurate blogthings )

Also remember back in 2007 when I was doing website of the day? Well I never finished them and I found the ones I hadn't done while going through a box. I almost threw them away but since I am in a mood to finish things I decided to inflict them upon you once again until they are gone. Now remember I am working from a list someone else made and I do not necessarily visit the website of the day the day I post it and sometimes the website is no longer up. I will occasionally point out websites I like as I always have but they will be listed else where in the post.

Because I finally got to see the Simpson's Movie and I have been watching the show since the beginning I composed a list of my favorite Simpson's moments, although I have to admit that most of them are from more resent episodes because they are what I could pull out of my memory.

Fall term is long over and done with but it was my last term at school. A lot happened then and I don't actually remember the details too well. But it was important enough and eventful enough that I thought that I should at least try to sum up my last term, under a cut of course.

the end )

Not that I haven't bored you enough with my vague account of fall term but there will be a part two! But not until after breakfast, and maybe a nap.

Jen has been here twice now. The first time was to help clean out the house up the river and go through her old stuff. It was kinda fun and kinda sad. We spent so much time together it was like, even though it was her stuff, that we were throwing away parts of both of our childhoods. It also reminded me that we don’t spend enough time together anymore, not that it is really possible to spend much time together. We have changed so much in the last 4 years. I feel so disconnected. We spent nearly every day together for 18 years and now we only see each other a couple of times a year. We both knew it was going to happen. But it doesn’t make it any less sad. But we always fall into our weird pattern. She brought me my birthday present, which was a pair of beautiful earrings. She also brought me Shakespeare festival chocolates and mints. I shall have to figure out something really good for her birthday…and actually send it to her on time for a change. I also managed to inherit her Garfield books. The second time she came down, she brought the boyfriend, meaning I got meet him…finally. He is a very nice man and I approve, not that it really matters if I approve. Although I would like to think that my opinion still got some weight, but she has been dating him for awhile and he moved to Chicago not long after the visit so its kind of a moot point.
While Jen and I were cleaning out her old toys we decided that my obsession with My Little Ponies as a child may be responsible for my obsession with tattoos now.

I did manage to make it to the beach a few times this summer. That is the whole point of going home right? Most of the time I was there I just ate lunch there and watched the tourists. One time I saw a bunny playing amongst the squirrels but I think I may have already wrote about that. One of the times I was down there about dusk, it is the perfect time to go because the tourists are about gone because it is too cold for them, I got some cool pics I hope to post soon. Another time I went down was in the midst of the tourists. They are interesting to watch. Most of the tourists we get are either hippies or bikers, but in the last few years we have been getting a good number of families too. There was this one cowboy there and from just watching him you could tell that he had never seen the ocean in person before. There were lots of interesting people there but he sticks out in my mind the most. The other person that really sticks out in my mind is this woman that came up to talk to me when I was rinsing my feet at the faucet. The wind was blowing so my hair was flying everywhere and there is this short wall (about to my chest but not quite) in front of the faucet. My hair is also several shades of green and blonde. And she said she had to tell me that as she was walking up, when I was bent down washing my feet that I looked like mermaid emerging from the ocean. That was kind of cool, especially considering all the flack I have been getting. Although she wasn't the first person this summer to say I had mermaid hair.

Hi! I have only had internet since 1pm yesterday and I'm sooo happy, even though it is dial-up. It was such a pain because my mother was behind in payments, then they lost the check, on and on, so after several phone calls they hooked me up even though they couldn't find the check.
Let's see what have I been up to since I have been home...mostly unpacking. First I had to get all of my stuff out of the garage into the living room, then I had to get it from the living room into either my room or the attic. There is only one box still in the living room but I can't get around in my room. Its full of boxes. Each day is a new adventure. I never know what I am going to find whenever I open a box. Also, my mother was using my room for storage while I was away, so some of that stuff is still in here too. I have hooked up my answering machine because my mother's doesn't work right. I have also hooked up my dvd player. Did I mention my mother completely redecorated the house since I was home last? I'm still getting used to it. I have watched seasons 1-3 plus all the bonus material of Viva la Bam. I even found some hidden bonus footage on the bonus dvd for seasons 2&3. I also watched HIM vs Bam. So now my mother is a Bam fan. Its kinda scary. She wants me to write him a letter for her. I should have seen this coming when she had me tape Unholy Union. I have been doing all the cooking. I have started Hairball's Helldone snowman costume. There was a couple of exciting trips to the post office. My mother only checks the mail about once a month when I am not home so the box was packed. My Revolver magazine came (yay Ville poster) and my Spin magazine came (not so exciting). Also my Origins of Abstract Art professor sent me my paper and final. I got Bs on both of them! Yay! The paper is especially exciting because it was supposed to be 6-8 pages and mine was only a little over 3. And I used to be such a good student. My mother has been working 14 hour days lately (big surprise) because she has 3 new employees and the football camp is in town. So I have been nice and not strangled her when she makes mean comments about me. Hell, I even gave her a back rub the other day without complaint. But those boys are leaving Thursday morning and then all bets are off. The turf war over the bathroom has already begun. She thinks she can get away with telling me I can't have any space for my things in the bathroom after she has already promised me a shelf and a drawer. Just wait! I also have been going over my photos in my computer because this weekend (I think) we are having prints made. Today I had a dentist appointment. Apparently I have a new dentist, again. I haven't met him yet though. At least I got the hygienist I like this time. The bad part is though part of one of my teeth broke off when she was cleaning it. Oh well, it was a tiny piece of one of the ones that is cracked from when I got smacked. Its ok. Well, I must got plan for tomorrow is my hostile take over of the bathroom.

From Friday June 15th:
There were PRCRs everywhere! Blue,yellow and pink sheets flying through the air. We don't know when Patty finally lost it but at some point she just laid down and died in the back. We just buried her in PRCRs and kept on going. They just kept coming with papers and keys and phone calls. We racked as fast as we could! We typed till our little fingers bled. They just kept dropping all around me. Everything started to get fuzzy then and the room spun. The keys! The keys!
O.K. that isn't how my last day of work went but it is what my boss and I were saying would happen during close down before hand. Actually close down went quite well. Moving in the summer kids did not go nearly as well but there is always going to be a few snags. And then magically at nine o'clock I was done. I clocked out for the last time at the Area Desk ever and walked away. I was elated.
Then my mood turned sour. I called my room and my mother's cell phone five times to get her to let me in the building so I could go to my room. I even shouted at my open window. Still she never came down to let me in. I imagined all sorts of scenarios, she was in the bathroom, she was in the car, she fell and busted her skull open and is now in need of serious medical attention. So, I called my friend who also lived in the building and was staying over an extra day to come let me in. I felt bad because she was spending time with her family that flew in from Japan but she was the only one that could let me. We get up there and there is my mother scrubbing the carpet.There is glass everywhere and red on her arms so my friend and I automatically assume the worst but she was fine. She just put my very large bottle of pomegranate syrup, that I had bought to bring home so I could have pomegranate Italian sodas at home because you can't buy that flavor of syrup anywhere even remotely near where I live, on the edge of a shelf, that I told her not to put things on, and it fell. Yes, my mother was packing for me and cleaning my room while I was at work. It was her idea. I would have much rather her not show up till Saturday and and me be up all night after work packing by myself. Whenever my mother "helps" me things get lost and broken. Not that I don't love my mother and appreciate that she actually wants to help me. Oh I need to just stop before I say something bad.

Yesterday, I reached another local rite of passage. I bought a joke book from Frog. It is an elaborate ritual that involves squeasing several rubber chickens. But it means that I am now the proud owner of an autographed copy of Illegitamte Son of Frog.
Lately, I have been doing a lot of reflecting. For obvious reasons, I'm graduating. You'd think I'd be happy. It's not so much that I'm only noticig the endings, like Hairball's and my last late night Puckler's run of the year or the goodbye party at work. I also notice that it is a begining, a begining that scares me. As of the 15th I'll offically be unemployed. As of the 16th I'll be offically homeless. As of the 17th I'm offically moving back home because I have no where else to go. Granted I'm happy that at least I have a place to go, but there isn't anything there for me really.
A while back a girl at work said something to me, "I'm really worried about you moving back home." The full meaning of that didn't really sink in until very recently. It is not just that I am increadbly unhappy whenever I go home, or that I have no firends there, or job. Since I lived at home I have, not so much become a different person, but actaully act like myself now. When I go home on breaks I still hide things from people and just don't talk about certain aspects of my life. Its ok though because I come back here and I can more or less be myself again. That isnt to say that I fit in here or that I am happy here either. But it is a different kind of miserable.
Staying here isn't much of an option either. I don't really have any friends here that live here. I'm also not very happy here either. The hope is that I go home and save money and come up with some sort of plan to be somewhere else. Yeah I have no plan.
That is one of the worse parts about graduating. Its not the fact that I have no plan, its that people keep asking me what my plan is. Only my fellow graduates seem to understand that unless you know a person has a plan after graduation, you should never ask them what their plans are. See for me first I have to tell them that even though I am graduating, I am not actaully done with school, I still have to come back for a term in the fall. So I am not done until December. This summer I have to get a job and live at home and do whatever it is my mother requires of me so that she won't charge me rent (as she has threatened to do). Then in December, I will be exactly where I am now. So I have been telling people that I am going home in order to save some money and work on my art, so that I can travel and eventually move to Seattle or San Fransisco. I don't know if it is the truth but that is what I have been telling people.
I find myself wishing I could go back four years. Not that I liked high school. It was pretty much the worst time of my life so far. But at least then I wasn't in this spot now. I had firends, kinda, who where actually physically in the same city. They didn't really have time for me most of the time but hey they were there. I had an old but reasonably healthy dog and a cat who was my universe. Unlike now when I have a dead dog and have to leave Target in a hurry because they have those stupid scrapbooks that are like baby books for pets that you can put their little paws prints on like I wanted to get Ruby when she was a kitten. I was unhappy with my life and where I lived and assumed there where places that live could be different and I could find people like me. Now I actaully know. At least my mother is trying to understand that part. She is willing to work with me on the adjusting from one lifestyle to a new one thing. The only thing she won't budge on so far is getting an internet connection that isn't dial up. Her argument is "but you can use the library's computer for an hour a day." But enough about that. I try to remind myself of all the, for lack of a better term, life changing things that happened in the last four years, the good ones; meeting Hairball, becoming friends with Martini all over again, the HIM concert, going from virtually no computer skills to whatever I am now, the list goes one and on. But this makes it worse. It just adds to the things I wish had never happended bnecause you can't miss what you never had. Back then it seemed as though life was ahead of me. Now it seems as though I am somehow spirallying backwards, like the last four years didn't count. They didn't mean anything, the good or the bad. It was just one big cruel expensive joke. I feel as though small children should be pointing at me going "look mommy she failed at life." and then their mothers shush them saying it's not nice to point, politely nod at me and then drag their little brats away. That ended up being more depressing then I had intended.

Lately I have been fairly reflective and nostalgic. I realized I'm not sure if I ever explained why I started my lj, besides the constant poking and prodding from Tini to get one at the time. I figure since it's over a year old now I might as well.

It has occurred to me that as often as I talk about work, I have never really told you what I actually do.
