It's been how long?? Wow... Misc stuff.
It has been over four days since I've last posted. Wow. I just haven't felt like taking the time to actually write down what I would say. That and I've been fairly busy with other things so I excused myself from writing entries to do those things.

A recent entry by nakednerd that I agree with: Editorial Cartoon. I wouldn't say it in quite those words, but the sentiment is about the same. No and absolutely no. I write what I write. You write what you write. Now leave me alone.

It seems like every other time I go to take a shower, there is at least one hair embedded into the bar of soap.

My speakers have officially gone out. A couple of days ago if I turned them up too much they just went off until I turned it back down. Yesterday and today, though, as soon as I turn them on the green power light immediately goes back out. Yet another thing I need to buy.

I have less than two days to cancel my Netflix account or get the money to pay for it into my bank account. I don't see the money getting into the bank tomorrow so I'm just going to have to cancel it.

In the mail today was a letter from the Tennessee Department of Solutions (a.k.a. Appeals). I'm not eligible for reimbursement because it has been more than thirty days since I paid for the service (and yet in the next three bullet points it says "from the time you realize there was a problem", which was the very day I filed the appeal). Oh well, 250$ I hadn't really expected to get back, but definitely would have been nice to. My sister has advised me to appeal the appeal, which I am now doing. I'm to expect a call back in the next half an hour or some time Monday regarding the issue.

Since college isn't going to finance itself I'm very tempted to skip college this Fall and spend the money on other things. Like an apartment in a larger city. I hear one-bedroom apartments are less than 500$ a month in some places. I think I could swing it for a few months. A roommate would cut that in half, but I don't know that I want to go that route. I just won't get the money to do that until like October (which is why college is very unlikely at this point; no finances to cover the difference between loans and total cost). I'll have to start working on contract leads, too.

LiveJournal finally took the hint and implemented a way to hide the embedded videos completely until clicked on (for those of you who couldn't figure out how to just use a lj-cut, or refused to). I'm a happy camper again.

I must finish getting ready for my physical therapy appointment now. I'll write more about that next time.

For some reason - perhaps because I am so tired and crazed from Clarion - but I have the urge to sit at your feet while you type away at the computer.

Hmm, that's an interesting notion. I would like to think it has something to do with this entry, but something tells me it's just a general feeling you felt the desire to express and the entry happened to be here. :-)

So, what's up? I glanced at one of your recent clarion entries on my Reader's reading list that it is coming to a close soon. You're the one in the red shirt in that group picture if I'm not mistaken, no?

Later. :-)

It's also the post as well. That and I always enjoy our exchanges, even when you yell at me, lol.

Yep, I'm in the red shirt. A forgettable guy.

I couldn't find how to hide the embedded videos. Where do I go to find out about that?

And the cartoon definitely reflects some of what I feel. I've had some problems because of having a mostly open journal, but there is a good side, and I can't just dismiss it.

Thanks. I wasn't able to find Viewing Options without that link. It might be because I use the Dystopia browse option.

WOOOT! Ride It! Geri Halliwell! Unfortunately, that's
the only song I trully found interesting from the album.

Boo for the speakers, I have a set if you'd like, they're
collecting dust here and I've been meaning to give them
to somebody for sometime.

As for the LJ vid tag, I'm interested in that as well,
I'll look in the FAQs later on about that.

And the financial situation, I hadn't looked that far back
into your entries (yet) but what happened to your boyfriend?
Or the current housing situation, is it just independency
your looking for? As for the NY Metro area, I could help with
that as I'm looking for the same as well.

I'll pass, thanks. You would have to pay for shipping and it's really not that important. Wal-mart has speakers for under twenty bucks, and since I may also be getting a wireless router I'll probably just get it at the same time from NewEgg.

Which one? =X

It's independency, and a better location. A big part of the "independency" is the ability to go where I want, and not put up with my sister any more. She drives me up a wall more often than not anymore. And she seems to have this idea I'm driving her up a wall for not doing what she wants.

I would guess the most recent boyfriend.
The one with who you were living with (?)
before you relocated with your fam again.

Yay for independency, NY is full of nothing
but it, and it's all about "Go Where I Want".
However considering (from what I can tell)
that you haven't been in such a hectic metropolitan
such as NY, have you thought of smaller areas
such as DC? I would like an idea of a smaller
scale city vs NY since I too am looking for an out.
