Yo GD I heard you like hunks so here's Hugh Jackman applauding your new job:



Good job!  :D
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

The other hunk was hotter. ;)

But nevertheless, just this past Christmas I was feeling like life is over, but now I've got a new job and also a date on Sunday! Everything just keeps getting better. Strange!

Ok but don't get bummed out if something goes wrong. Don't fall into the trap of thinking good things happening = happiness forever.

Ehh I'm sure some terrible **** is about to go down eventually. For example, with my new job, I have a huge lack of time to do my school work. I am looking forward to having absolutely no free time.

Honestly I'm really stressed, both about not having enough time study and the contents of the new job. The job entails using software I've never used before. They are aware of this at the job, but still it's stressful.

Also I dated that guy earlier, but decided it wasn't a match made in heaven. But I'm tired of being single, so let's give it another chance. Maybe he has learned better ways to act. I mean, at least he's kinda cute and successful in his life. Better than some other losers who have been into me.

Seriously I have no idea if these new good developments are going to end well at all. But hell, I was just about to run out of savings as the new job came along, so it happened at the perfect time. And I was JUST thinking about "okay, got a job, now needs boyfriend" when I randomly ran into this dude. So yeah. It SEEMS like everything is coming together perfectly, but I am very anxious nonetheless. Only time will tell.

But yeah, at least now it feels like I'm living life instead of just hiding away at home. I mean, hiding away at home has its upsides, but it can also get quite dull. Whereas not hiding away can get quite stressful... it's forever a battle between being bored to death and being stressed to death. But yeah... I'd say things are looking better than at Christmas, when I was basically thinking of killing myself.

Longest time ever spent continuously awake. New record!

I would conservatively estimate 50 hours.

But at this point, even writing this is physically difficult, and I'm probably going to sleep for 20 or so hours if previous experience bears out.

Took an anxiolytic to inhibit the usual symptom of paranoia that, previously, made it hard to keep my eyes closed in bed. It hit me like a bus and I hope I finish this post.

The visual disturbances, perception errors; perceiving some things as people or animals etc unless you can see detail to override the apparently overzealous Where's Waldo brain region. Lots of shadow people (we're on good terms though) and I even waved to one and he waved back. Dark car interiors appear to have seated motionless drivers in the dark, though: not cool.

Oh and the dimensions and location of almost everything (objects, this text, this window, my avatar) are in a constant state of minor flux, like some prank virus to trip someone out.

PS: This would be illegible without autocorrect and a lot of backspace.

Brandon don't die.  And if you see Ambien Walrus, it wasn't me.

I found a previously unknown unopened lager on my floor when I accidentally impaled it on a bat'leth.

Losses were minor and the resource was exploited.

I made burger buns. I have crossed the threshold into baking and it is neato.
They look darker than they are because of the glaze. A few were eggwash but the rest were butter.
Turned out nicely. I am now making a deluxe as **** burger with tomatoes and onions and mushrooms and bacon and **** you. :0

No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.
