and i don't understand why i sleep all day

a. I always find alphabetical lists are easier to read through than big bunches of unorganized paragraphs. They're at least more easily skimmed, amirite?

b. Have gotten my babysitting job back, which is fortunate, since I haven't got any other jobs at the moment.

c. A. has finally served me notice of eviction, in the kindest, most passive-aggressive way possible, so I will definitely be moving into a place of my own sometime soon, probably! Or else!

d. It really slammed into me tonight how much I miss [livejournal.com profile] gjstruthseeker. For years I had her within arms' reach (or at least within a stone's throw), and now for years she's been halfway around the world, not even a phone call away. I adore the friends I have here, and I know I need to get better at making and keeping new ones, but I miss her so much.

e. Chanukah came so early this year (and I am in such tenuous and sporadic contact with most of the members of my family) that three of my non-Jewish friends were the first to tell me about it. I should probably put that kind of thing on my calendar. HAPPY CHANUKAH, EVERYONE (WHO CELEBRATES IT). I hope you have all seen this. :D

f. Sometimes I download episodes of television from the internet, and then I watch them! And SOMETIMES I then read massive amounts of fanfiction about it, or about other things and/or people!* One day I will again post about these phenomena.

g. Recently I revisited the Enneagram online personality test and it SPOKE to my SOUL.** Between that and internet research wrt Avoidant Personality Disorder, I have gotten a much better sense of my actual current state of mind and being than therapy ever gave me. Not that it's solved anything, but then therapy never did either.


* Most of them I bookmark here, though I'm dreadfully behind.

a. Lists are nice. I like them. I should use them more often.

b. Having a job at all is good. Babysitting can be fun, too!

c. Eviction is not cool. :-( Though it sounds like it might be really great to have your own place, and not be with A.

f. Alas, I don't have time to obsess over tv like I used to. I usually only get as far as reading all I can on Wikipedia about them, and never make it to the fanfic/fanvids/ect. :-(

a. They are particularly good for times when you have a bunch of different things to post about and can't bother to figure out graceful transitions! This happens to me all the time.

b. I don't really mind the babysitting but it doesn't pay enough and it's not even close to what I want to be doing with my life.

c. It's going to be great to have my own place, it's just a matter of . . . getting my own place. >_< And I don't blame A. (my half-brother, for the record) for any of it. We might have some crippling communication problems, but he's been more than generous in everything; he's not a villain here.

f. I'm obsessing over very little TV these days, but I just ran through ALL of Law and Order: UK, so I'm in the market for something again. I think the only things I'm currently following are Community and Psych (and Undercovers, when they choose to air it). And I'm always reading fanfic about SOMETHING, even if it isn't what I'm watching. Right now I'm reading everything in Sherlock (BBC) that I can get my hands on.
