A quick note before flinging myself into the bleakness of the world...

Sorry I know the title is off but there is often times where the depression hits around my birthday. I know that it is comming and with my yearly cold at Christmas this is yet another yearly tradition. This year may be worse than normal because winter is being so retarded that there was no excitement about it this year. Also it is another slap to the face that once more I have yet to move out on my own, a small dream of mine since I graduated from High School at the age of 17. It seems as though there has been way too many excuses and too little mind to think about it. Even still there is just a reminder that yet another year has passed and the world has been passing me by once again. But there are times in which I cannot think too long about these things because I am far too busy.

First off I got a vendors table at A Taste of Animethon! So I am using every moment that I can to get off any merchandise that I can. So far i have two boxes full but a friend of mine is competing with me and she has two boxes of stuff herself. With the amount of stuff that we produce we will have to take thirty trips back and forth to bring everything into the room. With this I have become an ebay shopper. It is weird both Kim an dI haven't used e-bay up to last year and had no intention of using any further but I have to say it...When you can ship something from china for free and costs less that you can buy it locally, and I'm meaning a lot less not a few cents, what is wrong with our economy? Not sure. May have to rant about it at another time.

Also there is school. This term we are doing all of our classes based on one survey. We are learning to set up a subdivision from the concept, legislation, survey, reporting of survey and finally staking out of the finalized survey. It has been stupid hard lately because of the three feet of snow everywhere and where some of the property pins are located, the banks are sometimes more than seven feet deep. In other words we take a shovel and dig into the snow while the snow keeps falling and blowing and otherwise making us miserable in a fashion that there is simply not enough clothes to keep you warm and mobile at the same time. Thankfully I bought new shoes and dispite the grommetted holes in their sides I have warm and dry feet. A plus. Meanwhile I was a retard and didn't bring a hat so like an old lady I tied a scarf over my ears. I was thinking about cutting my hair again since it grew retardily fast over the last two months but now I'm not sure.

Meanwhile I am trying my best not to absolutely plow the stupid morons around me. Thankfully one of such said morons is no longer bugging me in school but I think it also comes down that I am now hiding behind the (quite large) guys of my class. Effectivly I have become part of a group of younger men that I'm pretty sure don't know my true age.

On a final note, I have been trying to excercise more but I'm pretty sure that it's not doing too much for anything. I figured once I have one paycheque to myself I am going to buy one of those European giggle machines that all you have to do is stand on it and it wiggles you around and, in theory, you lose fat weight. I'm unsure but a machine that makes you wiggle and move without you exherting yourself is interesting enough to have try. I might also try a challenge that the school is holding but the event is on the other side of campus.

Anyways back out into the snow and blow. Post later! ^^

Okay, I'm sorry about leaving everyone in the dark since the first of November 1.

November - A crazy month...NaNoWriMo had came and I won it again for yet another rewrite of Twin Earth. This year I am going to go with the opportunity to gain a editorial copy of the novel. Yay me!
Also to go with this month was the crunch time for the English reports, speeches and other assignments. And then there is the other classes demanding of my time as well.

December - Finals and Christmas...That's about it. Got one of my wisdom teeth pulled right after finals but it still hasn't healed as of yet...Might've given myself dry socket during the night after but with the meds I'm on I don't feel pain like I did before, but the healing time kinda dictates that I did.

January - New semester, new hassles, new weather. I don't like new semesters. Never had. The one good thing about this semester is that there is only two early days. Bad side: no early days. Period.
Also I am now becoming a vendor for A Taste of Animethon next month. Don't think that this is an easy task. I have been playing email tag since the beginning of the month and just today got kinda got confirmation that I might have a booth. Dumb Asses.
The weather has been retarded. So far this January we have had more than two feet of snow. We have only 16 more cm to go before we break the record in 1976....76?...79? Something like that. We have a backhoe and a fair mount of land but when the snow is just short of hip deep there is only so many places where you can push the snow. In town it's crazy! Snow is overtop of cars and it's sometimes a guesswork to get out of some parking lots. Thankfully my school is on a major route and the snow is cleared with a good speed.

Anyways I have to get back to paying attention to class...
