HAPPY THANKSGIVING MY AMERICAN BUDDIES~

Everyone else... er, Happy Thursday. WANT SOME TURKEY?

Washington is all messed up guys, someone broke the weather. We got 5 inches of snow the past few days. FIVE INCHES. BEFORE THANKSGIVING. By contrast, last year it didn't even snow once. Definitely an El Niña this year. Still, I'm not complaining! They closed the campus Tuesday and Wednesday, so it's like break was even longer than usual! 

Man, this week has been crazy. I have to read half of a novel, do a presentation on the first few chapters of another novel, write an essay about, oh hey, another novel, and then finish all the paper work and forms for study abroad next year. @w@ And then I still have a few other readings for Japanese History and homework for Japanese class. I should probably hiatus from some things soon.

I'm not too worried about stuff though! Let's stay positive and have a meme!

HERE BE A MEME )

So, since I started working, that's been my life. Working. I complained to my mom about it and she was all WELCOME TO THE WORKING WORLD~ Yeah, things are a little different for her. She drives to work and sits at a desk all day. I commute by bus and stand all day.

All. Day. As in, I'm not allowed to sit unless I'm on break. Not even for a second.

I'm not complaining that I have the job, but just because I have one while other people are looking for work doesn't mean I have to like it and can't complain. Cry me a river, my dad's been unemployed since 2008 and his unemployment checks run out soon. Trust me, I know what it's like for people who can't find jobs in this economy. |:

BUT ANYWAY it's not even the work that bugs me. It's the goddamn commute. It takes me 2 hours to get to South Center by bus. 2 hours to get there, 8 hours of work, 2 hours to get home (which involves waiting around the creepy Kent Station bus terminal until the Covington bus comes, since it only runs hourly)... that leaves me 12 hours of the day to myself. Then it takes me an hour to get ready in the morning and an hour to wind down for bed... that's 10 hours. I need 8 hours of sleep to function.

Do you see where I'm getting at here? 2 hours of free time on days when I work. So far, I've just been taking away from the sleeping part of my day. Doesn't help that I've had insomnia lately too; I'm exhausted and ready to sleep until I lay down. Then I'm alert and wide awake. 

I feel bad. I just started trying to RP again and there goes my free-time. I know I'll be okay at SBG because I still get at least two days off a week and no one should mind if I have to back-tag into forever (right...?) but waiting a week for a tag isn't really something I can get away with at the Elegante. I keep trying to work up the courage to make a drop post...

Aside from the paychecks, the one good thing about working is it makes the summer go by faster. I've started to really dislike summer these past few years and this year's summer has really cemented it; I can't stand not being in college. I miss my home. UW is my home. 3: I have more freedom, more free-time, and there's always food. I actually feel motivated while I'm there. My family's house is like a motivational black hole; good for relaxing, but good luck trying to get anything else done.

As of right now, I am in agony from a headache and a sore body from working, so I'm gonna end this here... yeah.
