A mixture of insanity and goodness. Mostly goodness. Friday I got out of work early at 4, which was nice and meant I got to go to the library and get three books out, which is happy.
Saturday, we (my Mom and I) went through all the clothes in my closet and dresser and cleaned them out. We got rid of so much stuff it's unbelievable. Most of it's going to Salvation Army. Then my closet and drawers filled back up when I finally unpacked my suitcases.
Got my graduation present yesterday, a shiny new laptop with a nice fast processor and lots of cool stuff, and a carrying case to go with it. Thanks Mom and Dad.
Today, we went shopping in Syracuse at Carousel Mall. This was mostly to replenish some of my wardrobe, in light of the massive amounts of clothes I got rid of. Needed new work clothes, and I got them. 3 pairs of shoes, 2 dresses, 2 skits, 4 tops, a pair of slacks, and a skirt suit. Very nice stuff. Had the most luck at Lane Bryant, as they make clothes meant to fit women shaped like me. Yay for them. The cashier at Penny's forgot to take off those ink security tags, so my Mom is taking the clothes to the one here to get them taken off. Everything else is hanging in my closet.
Saturday night, I think, I went to eredien
's and we watched Camp
, which is fun and I want the soundtrack, because it's about kids at a performing arts camp. Very funny and sweet.
Today, after the clothes, we went to Wegmans, which is always an experience. The one in Syracuse (well, technically it's in DeWitt) is massive, and almost overwhelming, and has so many yummy foods, it's fun.
Then we had a very yummy dinner, consisting of the salmon that we bought at Wegman's and rice.
Then we went to do my GW financial aid forms. This was the not fun part. Couldn't find a required form and went nuts looking for it. Turns out it was on the kitchen table, and my Dad just hasn't picked it up with the pile of forms. Thank God I found it. All my paperwork is done, just waiting for Dad to send in the FAFSA. Fixed myself a snack to calm down, which is probably why so many clothes look horrible on me. Must find and join gym or exercise program of some sort.
Other stressful point- the letter in my admissions packet says I can get a GWU e-mail now. I need it for finacial aid, but the problem is that when I try to get it, it says I'm not eligable. So I think I need to call the ITS guys and fix things. Because I need that new shiny e-mail. And a place to live, but we won't go there today.
Now I'm chilling out, watching The OC for some unknown reason and writing in my journal in my pjs with my brand new computer hooked up to the cable modem. Happiness. Work tomorrow, but we're in theory done or almost done with the crappy part and moving on to other parts. Can't talk about it, but in theory I could be handlig ridiculous quantities of money everyday, though not actual cash. We can't discuss how much comes in because it could skew the amounts that come in. I don't know how much is coming in anyway, b/c I just do what they tell me too.
That's all for now- having to get used to a non-ergonomic keyboard again, don't want to get Carpal Tunnel.
