slow deth
June 15, 2004

Who me? The person that used up the entire box of tissues? Yeah, okay, I admit it. But you can't blame me, really. It's either that or something worse.

Idaho is my scapegoat of choice. Dig how easy it is:

I think I either have a headcold or allergies - I really don't know which. Either way, it's the fault of the place in which I reside. I've been spending hours in bed at night sniffling and sneezing and getting snotty (both ways). I never had any kind of allergy until I moved to Idaho.

I want to go back to school. There are plenty of those out there that would love to have a cupcake-frosting position, but not I. I would get bored too quickly with that. I don't really know what I want to be yet when I grow up - is that sad? I don't have a college degree, let alone any transferable credits. Of course, I don't want to go to a college in Idaho.

The B and I have been engaged for almost 3 years. Why the wait to do the deed? Money. We don't have any money, and while I know that it's easy enough to get married pretty much sans money, we don't want to get married in Idaho. Nor Nevada.

I'm letting this place get to me, obviously. It just seems like every time the hour of leaving gets closer, it is delayed by 6 months or a year. I really really really want to get the heckidy heck out of here, but I'm allowing my excuses to prevent me from doing what I want to do. I just really don't know how to get around this bump in the road, and it's driving me crazy.

PS. My toilet has been leaking for the past 2 weeks, and not only did I find out where the leak was coming from last night, but I fixed it! I so rock the party that rocks the plumbing party. And then I showed that toilet a thing or two...


Don't move to Lawrence. Same allergies, same crappy University. Same inability for the residence to get the heckidy heck out.

"I showed that toilet a thing or two" is a very amusing sentence when you think about it.

dev i didn't go to college until i was 31 and now i'm 50 something and i still go to college. you can do anything you want to but only you can make the changes and never wait for a man in order to make changes. as for the sniffles and snot you may need to move perhaps there is too much mold in your residence.

Hey, get hypoallergenic bedding - mattress and pillow covers. And I have a fake down comforter. It's heavenly!

Hey, I have 2 friends who had no money, so they got married at City Hall and then threw a keg party for their friends. And everyone brought food, so it turned into a potluck. Have you thought about something like that?
