Wow, I have been off the grid as it were for like a solid week. That's EONS for me. My internet at home was down, my internet here has been choppy, and I'm never on desk anymore at work. I'm having withdrawals.
So my "summer", which was all of like 12 days, was all right. Watched a lot of anime, internetted quite a bit, saw Courtney, spent time fighting/talking/making up with Joel. You know...stuff. It was nice to not have anything to do during the day, though. It's been a looooong time since that has been the case.
Now I'm back in Santa Cruz and very alone. Like, during the year I talk extensively to five people: Nicole and Trevor at work, Tiffany in class, Joel on breaks, and Gillian in the evening. Nicole is in LA, Tiffany has graduated and is off in the world, Joel is on his month long coutnry-wide road trip, and Gillian is in New York and then Ireland until July 5th. I still se Trevor at work, but omg I am so alone. It's both nice and terrifying. I don't mind it so much...until it's like 1 AM and I can't sleep because I hear noises. It's not like Gillian being there would make me much safer were someone to break in, but I dunno. I don't like sleeping in a house alone.
Other than the alone thing, work is INTENSE and I don't think I'm going to like the class I'm taking. Work is like 7 straight hours of shelving and sorting. One snack break, one lunch break. We're not supposed to listen to our headphones (everyone does anyway, but I always feel guilty and nervous). Shit is bananas. My class is "personal narratives" where we watch a movie in class, discuss it, watch a movie out of class, write about it, all the while creating our own personal narrative that we must "perform" at the end of the quarter. Fizzuck.
Good things! I'm wearing Lolita for the first time in weeks! Joel has actually been calling/texting me more than once a day! I've made it past the 100 episode mark in One Piece! My Popuri
from Harvest Moon costume is coming alone nicely! Anime Expo next weekend! I'm going to indulge in sushi tonight! The lack of buses is making me walk more, and thus I'm actually exercising!
I lead an exciting life.
