post something in your life that sucks, and something that rules.
i'll kick it off:
suck: couldn't sleep at all, due to a chronic pain/adhd/intrusive thoughts triple combo. finally just gave up, chugged some coffee, and took my meds.
rule: there's a bit of a gentle rainstorm drifting in from the west, and just coincidentally my bedroom window faces west (it's not a coincidence, that was a lie; when we were looking at this house i saw the big west-facing window and went MOTHERFUCKIN DIBS FIGHT ME) so i can watch the clouds change. the trees are all leafed out now, and shimmering as the wind picks up, and the sky is a warm gray-white. the birds are roosting because they don't feel like flying in rain, so i can hear them talking to each other on the roof and in the backyard trees. and the wind smells amazing.
Suck: I'm sick and putting together a powerpoint presentation on Rules Concerning the Use of the Comma (zzzzzzz) on a Saturday night. My graphics board is acting up again so I can't play videogames, and I don't have the time to call up the technician this week. I also have tons of papers to grade.
Rule: I have a beautiful, huge 2-bedroom apartment all to myself with my very own library stocked full of nice books and pretty things. I have 3 well-fed, loved cats. I have a brother who I love and who loves me, who is a great friend.
Bad news: I got the day of my friend's going away sushi party wrong and had us drive all the way into the city through Boston traffic for no reason.
Good news: I didn't miss the going away party, it's happening tomorrow and there will be inhuman amounts of homemade sushi.
Suck: My Skyrim keeps crashing, and I'm now 98% certain it's a certain, really awesome mod that's the source. I don't wanna cut that mod out because it's really cool, but my saves keep getting corrupted :(. I'm also way tired and don't have a lot of brainpower for doing anything involved, and Skyrim is my main low-function distraction.
Rule: I have cider.
Bad news: WHERE DO I BEGIN
Good news: Cider, bright pink lipstick, hugs, my mouse is the cutest mousie
Good news: I went for a walk. And I now have an entire opera outfit.
Bad new: The pawfeets hurt.
Bad News: Mom threw a fit and broke some stuff
Good news: I got to make jello shots! Tomorrow is gonna be an awesome party!
Bad News: New contract starting Tuesday (change is EVIL)
Good News: No unpaid time between contracts (no moneys is also EVIL)
Bad News: I just took a shower. I'm mildly 'allergic' to water.
Good News: Mom made my lunch for tomorrow, so I don't have to worry about it before work! Plus, I get 15% off all tea purchases during the summer.
Bad news: I have homework to do and my brain is noping out on me regarding this, and the runny nose/scratchy throat I've been carrying about since 7 months is worsening into sneezing and coughing again
Good news: Ives is gonna visit today I am so psyched
Bad: it's raining, and i have to walk to get groceries because there is absolutely nothing to eat here
good: at least i think i'll be able to sleep during the afternoon? maybe?
Bad news: I've been scared all weekend that next time I go into work they're going to yell at me for a mistake I made/still worried about a mistake I made a few weeks ago.
Good news: I have today off and there's pizza in the fridge!
Bad news: work work work
Good news: money money money
(repeat ad infinitum)
The struggle of life. At least it's payday for you, I take it?
Suck: it turns out my laptop can't handle DA:I. This is very sad.
Rule: as of this week I can do multiple real push-ups for the first time in my life! And my arms look great.
@ZeroEsper I have one job with a regular payday and one freelance-ish thing that gives me work one week and pays the next for the previous week's efforts. Yesterday I got a payment from the second job, and tomorrow I'm getting paid for a commission (commissions are an entirely different beast). And payday is next week, yay.
@wixbloom good for you! I hope you get to do something fun with your pay.
Bad: i have a bugbite under my ring
good: i got to play in the dirt yesterday
haha this is going to be me all summer <3
