Sorry I've been so sporadic with my posting on here. My depression sometimes tells me why I even bother since hardly anyone reads it, but I know a few of you still do, so I appreciate it.

Health wise things seem to be getting better. I still have a few problem areas, but otherwise I'm doing good overall. Maybe now that we're getting into fall, things will get even better. I do know there are those out there who have it worse than I do, so I guess I'm appreciative for that at least.

Things at work are actually pretty good. I think it's partially because I'm working on changing my overall attitude to try and become a better person. I don't want to be the kind of person who holds onto all of the petty crap and bitterness that happened in the past. It does nothing but hold you back keeping you from moving forward with your life. It won't always be easy, but it's worth it to try.

I also think it helps with the fact that my co-worker that had the most issues with everything is no longer there and not feeding into the situation. I still keep in contact with her and we're still friends and all and I value that friendship, but she's a bit anti-social and misanthropic. So since she's not at work anymore, it helps to stay focused on other stuff and not get dragged down by the little unimportant things.

There's still heavy talk of a buyout, but some of us had a meeting with our supervisor last week and the subject was addressed. It seems for the most part that our department will most likely stay intact. My boss reasons that since we have the more advanced computer system, that it would be foolish to get rid of people who have been using it for awhile and are familiar with it. And since we'll be implementing a new data entry system (which will take a few years to be fully operational) that we'd still be needed. Now, granted this is all guessing, but it still gives me some relief to say the least.

Mom and I are prepping for our vacation in three weeks. I'm so excited! We're going to be in Tennessee and see the fall colors and the beautiful mountains and the crisp air. It's gonna be very hard for me to go back. Especially since more friends of ours moved up there this weekend. I keep hoping and praying that the opportunity will arise for us to make the move up there once and for all. Hopefully...

I finished my reread of Furuba yesterday. I still get the warm fuzzies when I read the last chapter. I have such affection for this series as well as the friends I met through it that it makes me smile every time. I may reread my Ouran series next, even though I'm missing the first ten books. I hope to be able to acquire them at some point in time. Either that or High School Debut, another shoujo series that I find cute and charming. I haven't made up my mind yet.

Well, happy fall everyone! Enjoy the changing of the leaves, the cooler air, pumpkin flavored everything and the coming holidays!

Well, this weekend was kind of busy. For starters, mom and I got our respective hairs cut. She also got a perm. I just stuck with a haircut. I used to have to get perms and I hated it with a burning, blinding passion.

I'd post a picture, but for some reason Semagic is being a bitch and not wanting to upload any pictures. DD:

If you follow my Tumblr account, you can see it on there.

You can see it here for convenience sake.

We then ate lunch afterward at the local brewery and grille. We just had the burgers, no beer. They were pretty good.

Then we got groceries and made a detour through the local park, mostly so mom could eye locations for photoshoots.

The rest of the weekend was pretty uneventful. I did manage to clean my bathroom on Sunday. That's quite an achievement for me, who has to be really motivated to clean. Sad, I know. I rewarded myself with Twinkies later. :DD

I got a new roomie today at work. Yes, another one. She seems to be more permanent though. I got that impression because IT made sure to switch the computer over to her name as well as the phone. She seems pretty nice though. Young, like in her mid twenties. She used to be a Medical Secretary bust she got burned out with it and wanted a change. There was an opening in our department and decided to apply. I think I like her.

I also cleaned out my bottom drawer in anticipation of our department's move in late May/early June. I accumulated a lot of takeout napkins and plastic silverware for some reason. My trash can was full of pretty much nothing but napkins and plastic utensils.

Been reading more of my recently acquired manga over the weekend. Mainlining more Ouran as well. Man, I have a sickness...

So, I've been reading/watching more Ouran High School Host Club. I cannot get enough of this series for some reason. It's so cute and dorky and fun.

And yes, I find Haruhi and Tamaki so freaking adorable! XDDD

The series ended pretty recently and I've read the final chapters a dozen times at least. I cannot get enough. I don't have the collected volumes as of yet (except for two), but I have a stroooong feeling I shall be remedying that eventually. I do admit to liking how the art evolution has changed. I thought the way the jaw lines were drawn in the earlier chapters was a bit odd, but it's gotten better in the later chapters and it's really cute.

And I've seen all of the anime and am rewatching it gradually as often as I can. Since I'm doing it live stream from Netflix I only get the dub (which is pretty decent. They manage to keep the honorifics and the Japanese references intact), so I don't have to worry about trying to read and follow along at the same time. But it's the Netflix plugin so I can't do other things while I watch, so I have to make sure I finish everything else beforehand.

Oh, and I also got myself a Tax ID number, so I shall be setting up my photo gallery at ImageKind in due time! I have to go through all of my pictures and do some adjustments and the like before I can set up anything. So hopefully I can at least make a little bit of extra cash in the meantime.

I shall be sure to post the link and pimp myself out once everything is set up! Watch this spot!!
