god, i'm terrible at DA. i keep disappearing and coming back for a day and then leaving again.
i'm still alive!
school: i have continued to keep a nice grade point average, and i've racked up enough school (local) credits and a high enough career GPA to make Dean's List the last two quarters
the good feels, man. struggling with chem- i had to drop "nursing" chem and took the engineering chem this quarter, with one of my favorite professors; it's going decently. A & P is soul crushing. if i had fifty hours a week to devote to it alone, i would still not have enough time.
living: i have my own apartment, now
it's not in the greatest area of milwaukee, but it's a bit over a mile from school, and it's all mine, baby. i am the only one who poops in my toilet and i can exist in my robe. it is glorious. fun fact: i lived on a hand-me-down pullout couch for six months until i got an actual bed for birthday/xmas present. ah, the joys of being an adult. i love living alone, although i sort of tend to become a recluse and i don't really hang out at school anymore- i usually just go home in between and right after classes. cause food and pajamas and stuff.
relationships: i'm not sure if i said anything about it or made a fuss, but at my friend lisa's graduation party, i happened to meet this crazy drunk guy in a star wars shirt. he liked my batman shirt. i stalked him on fb, and a year and a half later, we're still together XD we have our issues and ups and downs, and living over an hour apart and busy schedules contribute to them, but i think we're pretty fantastic :3
work: still with the same shitty home care agency, although i only work every other weekend, and i basically stick around for my two patients whom i've had for almost the whole time i've been with the agency. i've been sort of looking around for something close to home, but i'm really hoping for non-health care stuff. it's basically my last chance to do outside stuff before i get headlong into nursing. i just wanna work in a chill record shop surrounded by punks and hipsters and hippies ;_____;
health: ugh. i went to the gym tonight for the first time in months. i barely fit into my workout clothes...resolution:
work out at least a few times a week and try to start dropping the 40+ pounds i've gained the last year and a half....
hobbies: i barely do anything anymore :< i derp on the internet and watch netflix while i do chores. resolution:
read more! i barely read for leisure, i always think guiltily about all the stuff i should be reading for school and then i don't do either :/ i finished my first book of 2014 (reread Job: A Comedy of Justice, Heinlein) although i had technically started it over thanksgiving break. i just started Trainspotting (Irvine Welsh) and i'm going to try to get a chapter a day in, although i've already failed that. it's in a scottish brogue and it makes reading it quite slow for me, so it'll probably be closer to a chapter every few days. still better than what i did last year... resolution:
finish some freakin' crafts! i've been working on the same cross-stitch pattern for over a year now, and i'm so close to being done. i have three separate craft boards on pinterest. I NEED TO DO CRAFTS. resolution:
do moar photography. resolution:
write shit. anything. short stories, chaptered things, poetry. anything. i miss creating worlds.
so there we are! older, fatter, busier, and consumed with school. but not doin' too bad. i've had some good times and some bad times, and some dark days, but i'm alive and truckin' and all that jazz. and now i must go clean my bathroom, because therapeutic.
how's the DA world getting along?
