It's been so long since I last posted that I almost don't know what to write anymore.
What's been going on with me? The holiday was a whirlwind of good times and bad times. I almost didn't have a Christmas spirit, then found it just to lose it again. We won't even talk about my New Years...let's just say there's been a couple of HUGE changes in my life as a result that I don't feel like I can talk about right now because it's all too fresh and I haven't yet learned to control my emotions regarding it.
Have you ever been so tired it makes you angry that you're as exhausted as you are? Or so sad that the thought of crying hurts? Or have you ever been so happy that people can spot you from a mile away? I've felt all of these things over the past few weeks.
I've been working my ass off at DSW, and for the past couple of days I did a project with one of my previous bosses. The experience was certainly worth it. It reminded me of what I really love to do, which is work on a project that involves high organization and a certain level of independence. It also reminded me of how stressful that kind of employment is. I've had a dull headache for three days and my diet has consisted of pepsi (I'm a Coke drinker myself but when it comes to a caffeine fix I don't discriminate), flamin hots, and brownies. Plus the occassional ramen noodles or ravioli.
For the record, I'm not going back to Dekalb this semester, and if things go the way I want them to in Chicago, I'm never going back. It took being at home for me to realize that I don't like the college town scene. I like to be in the city, where I can work and transportation is easily accessible and there's a Walgreens or McDonald's on every corner and where I can work a decent job and go to school as well and finally get my life back on track from the *ahem* stumble I just took.
OOHHH. And a bit of sadness (for me, at least. It's nothing earth shattering). I have to part with my beloved Tweety coat!!!
Give me a moment so I can compose myself.
That coat has been with me for the past 3 years. It's made it through the harshest of winters, the mildest of falls, and springs, and the forgotten tone of summer. The Tweety became a little trademark for me when I first got the coat and made me easily identifiable to the world. It was a little big, and it spit feathers in my clothes every time I wore it, but it was a good coat nonetheless and it will be missed.
Now I've moved on to a more fitted Southpole coat. Not gonna lie, I really like the gold accents and fur around the hood, and it fits me much better than the Tweety coat. But still.
That's basically all for today...I promise I'll start writing more when I'm not so tired all the time.
