Comin' down to it |1:20 AM|
I've spent more time these past two weeks dicking around with financial aid paperwork and phone calls than I have on homework for two of my classes combined.
It's like I missed a class at some point on how to go to college. I also apparently missed a class on how to clean a house, but I suppose both vacuums being broken contributes to that.
Kerry is moving in tomorrow, so the house will no longer feel like an abandoned Antarctic research station. I used to prefer living alone, and I'm sure at some point I will again, but the last couple of weeks have been a bit lonesome. I hear "Moonlight Sonata" in my head a lot while making breakfast.
I started reading one of the pile of game programming books I got for Christmas, and I still don't quite know enough for them to be useful. In response I started reading another C++ book, and am declaring that as part of my homework for this month.

Congress Street LED's |11:19 AM|
A while back, The city of Austin strung long chains of LEDs (I mean, I assume they're LEDs) across Congress street. I can't seem to find any information about who made them, why they put them up, who controls them, etc.
They're pretty, and interesting, I just wish I could find some information about them.

Up late again |4:01 AM|
I am a bit bothered by how there's not a chore I'm avoiding when it comes to "getting better".
To clarify, I'm a terrible procrastinator. Unpleasant phone calls, annoying chores, studying for difficult lab practicals, these are all things I have to fight to accomplish. Treatment for ADHD aside, this is still an aspect of my personality. I still do these things, I still do my jobs, but it's a struggle.
Back to my original point, getting better, emotionally I mean, isn't something I'm avoiding. There's not some task I can "just go do". At least, as far as I can tell.
I have a feeling I've written something similar to this in the past.
Working out, that might help.

Fired |4:08 AM|
(Written a long time after, Jan 4th 2009 specifically)
Found out today I'm being fired. It is hard on morale when you find you job has been posted on Craigslist for 17 days.
I was going to put in my notice the next week anyhow, but it's still a drag.

Alex and Christina |11:59 PM|
Alex and Christina have moved to Ithaca, New York.
There was a lot of hugging, and drinking, and see you laters.
Another pair of front line friends have vanished from Austin. At the going away party, Christina grouped me in with her "First stringers to call for fighting boredom" for which I was flattered.
From Christina's return from France for the purpose of eating at an
all night diner
then one of the best damn parties
I have ever attended
And finally with her and Alex's quieter going away party it has been a blast.
Through her I got to know Alex and Shawn, got closer to Mike B and Sheel, and generally had a better time in Austin. I hope I was able to make her and Alex's time in Austin more interesting.
They'll be missed, and thus my reasons to visit New York increase.
