the circus of fireflies

a tent of dreams

So today marks my official one week back at school! Yaaay! And it feels so great to be back! But sadly that means that I will have virtually no social life (not that I ever had one...)

It just hurts having to focus so much during the day.. Like at work I am so used to getting up whenever I want, eat whenever I want, potty, etc... but at school, I gotta absorb and leaaaarn.

That said.. I am having such a hard time with class participation. And all of my professors are like really into responses and keep threatening the class with participation grades! @_@; Which sucks for me, because I don't like answering questions or sharing some dorky personal experience. I much rather just sit back, listen and take notes. But oh well, I must get out of my skin some day I guess? >_O

On a more exciting note, Tim & Eric Awesome Tour is tonight!!! My mom and I are heading out to NYC right after she gets out of work. I am so excited. I love these guys. And if you haven't heard of them, you are missing out on the meaning of life.  Such as this life lesson!

Promotion. Shameless, shameless promotion. (shameless)
Omg it's seriously felt like forever since I worked on a fanlisting! @__@; I cry at night because I have no time to do anything but work.. And my poor fanlistings have gotten hit the most. ::huff:: I got approved for the JRock fanlisting at the end of November, and since the beginning of December it's had a sad temp layout. But I finally got the time to work on it and even complete it today! yayaya! I wanted to promote the fanlisting here and ask that my dear friends join and support the FL, since it's full of JRock love and goodness. I also made sure to spread the JrockRevolution love as well. ;D Ahahahaha.

School starts this week!! I got my shiney new school laptop too. It's a Dell Inspiron 1210 -- Tiny tiny! It's like 12 inches wide and less than 4 freakin pounds!! I am so excited for classes to start though -- Do I sound like a nerd or what?? I'll have five classes on both Tuesdays and Fridays: Marketing, Principles of Management, Microeconomics, College Writing & Research, and Race, Ethnicity & Culture. 8D Nerd!

So I'll still be working my full time job (now part time? 24 hours a week~) -- Monday, Wednesday and Thursday. My fate with Starbucks is yet to be determined.. I wanna quit so bad. I didn't go in on Saturday. /)_(\ I'm gonna get beaten. Oh well.

So life remains crazy as always..  Working about 60 hours a week now.. But 2 out of 3 of my credit cards have been paid off! So now I just have to worry about our last chunky card..   Sadly though, the reason they got paid off is because of my bonus check from my full time job. xD; But at least my Starbucks pay is slowly but surely taking care of the chunky one...

School begins January 22! So I honestly have no idea how I am going to juggle two jobs plus school.. But I know that it'll get done! We'll see.. Starbucks isn't a matter of life and death.. And frankly, the economy is so yucky right now I don't even know how a move this summer back to Cali is going to be possible.. But I have time to figure it out..

On another note.. I lost one of my friends this past week... I learned of her death from my sister. Still definitely not ready to talk about it -- Still too shocked to even really let it soak in.

::Sighs:: As is life... Christmas is in a few days though...

Weee! So who else exercised their American right and voted today?? I did! Got up bright and early and was at the polls by 6:30 with my mom and Jeremy! It was very exciting!! But not as epic as I would've wanted it.. I really wanted those levers! But I should've known better -- I felt like I was in school filling in this little bubbles. >_o

On another odd note, I started my first shift at Starbucks today! I am taking up this part time job to hopefully get rid of this horrid credit card debt before my spring semester starts. (I know.. $2,800 doesn't seem like that much -- But for someone who has to worry about a car payment and rent first and foremost every month, it becomes a headache!)

Luckily this Starbucks is the one I pass on my way to and from my full time job everyday! Yaya! But it's just the fact that I have to juggle my full time job, getting Jeremy to and from work, and the eighteen billion other responsibilities I have on my plate. ::huff:: So my schedule is gonna look like this for a while:

Wake up at 6:30AM, drop Jeremy off at work and get to work by 8:30AM. Get off at 5PM. Pick up Jeremy, drop Jeremy off at home (and get changed), get to Starbucks by 6PM, get off at 10:45, go home, shower, computer (?), coma.

I know I'm crazy. >_< But it's just until school starts.. Just until school starts... ::Keeps repeating to herself::

I have issues...
Ohhh lordy. To say that I am juggling a whole lot right now is a bit of an understatement... Needless to say -- My poor LJ has been feeling the effects! Now I am not the type of person who will neglect things.. But frankly it pisses me off when people who once had me on their friends list "de-friend" me just because I don't seem to update every 2.3 seconds. Sorry, but I honestly have much more to worry about then adhering to your "friend guidelines".

::huff:: Anyway. I am in loooove. There's a new show on Adult Swim called Superjail! and omfg, it's seriously the best thing in the world. The gorgeous art, the insane amount of violence, and then the characters! I think I might be developing a crush on the Warden character too. Omgg. ::Clings to TV:: But this is when I can tell that something is wrong with me. I never think a guy is "cute" or "hot" but then I end up developing a freakin crush on a CARTOON CHARACTER? (If it helps btw, my first crush -ever- was Arnold from Hey Arnold) I need help. xD

Fanlisting world wise.. I am totally freaking out. JRock as a genre was open for applications about two weeks and I applied for it... This is one of my biggest wishlister fanlistings and I cringe every time I look into my inbox... >_< ::Biiiig deep breathes::

Okkei.. Back into my wave of chaos. >Sails away!!
