I am: Not looking forward to the next few days, but otherwise mostly satisfied.
Well, live has been moving along, which is good. I'm not as stressed out at home anymore even though I'm fairly stressed and annoyed by Dad still. It's pretty much got to do with the fact that the apartment is too small for two people to live in with any amount of real privacy. Even if we can ignore each other fairly well. I have at least managed to talk to him about moving out in the near future. I just need the financial stability to do it. Otherwise, on the apartment, it looks a lot better than it used to. Unfortunately, part of that is because I don't have Sammy's things to take up space. He died a few weeks ago. I keep looking around, especially when I open the door, expecting to see him, but I don't. I mean, I knew a few weeks before that that he wouldn't be around much longer, but it didn't really help much, if at all. But he had a nice long life, too, and he was a bit pampered. I'll see about scanning the photo I have of him as a kitten into the computer and posting it.
I'm also single again. I don't think I'll bother with romance right now, as I'm more concerned about, one, my classes, and two, finding a job. If it happens that I end up in another relationship, then so be it. But I'm not looking. Although I will admit there are cuties at the college.
In other news, I finally got to go to Washington DC last Wednesday. It was really fun, and I admittedly teard up slightly when I caught a glimpse of the White House.I was just so excited, and I felt like a little kid again. I was supposed to have the chance to go to DC in the fifth grade, but 9/11 happened... That pretty much ruined that chance. Anyway, the next chance I get, I'm going back to visit more museums.
Most of my time was spent in the Holocaust Museum. It was simply amazing, if extremely painful. In the end, I thought I was going to cry several times. It was--all the death--even more horrible than learning about it in a classroom. It was also strangely and extremely fascinating. My experience aside, I also bought a book about gays in the Holocaust. It's not an easy read. If it was, I'd already be done with it. I'm only about half done.
Thankfully, I've been able to write things again. I'm now working on a short story of Interlocked Lives for Christmas. It introduces a new character--one that was mentioned in Equality Of Another Kind. But I'll have to go back and explain how he showed up in present day. It also introduces two other characters who have been mentioned from present times.
Also, I've got a working Playstation memory card so I can play Final Fantasy VII and VIII. I'm really happy about that now.
