The Four Right Chords

What do you think of the new layout?



Yesterday was kind of one of those days where nothing you do can be right and everything suddenly backfires and it seems like the whole world is against you. Those don't happen very often, but yesterday was mine for the winter haha. The short version is as follows:

-credit card application vs. debix ID theft protection and lack of PIN
-C on Italian test. I don't get C's.
-honours acceptance (woo!) vs. my already made class schedule with 19 credit hours, and 22+ hrs of honours in addition to the 4 years of school I'm already cramming into 3.
-ticketmaster AND CAA vs. my computer for STOMP! tickets
-final portfolio for creative writing now due this coming monday instead of the monday of finals week, like a normal class.
-apparently taking Bella and Steph with me to Baby B's birthday party on Saturday (B=not yet 12 months old. Bella= almost 11 months. Joyful! Oh, and they do not get along haha)
And this is right after spending 12 hours in the car for an 8 hour trip on Sunday.

But today was much better and things were quite swell today, to be honest. I won at $15 Borders giftcard because my BR percentage was in the top 3 for November. The FRIDGE IS FIXED!!! It's cold and was just semi-restocked with $100 worth of groceries. Sold the camper today for $5,001.50...less than $100 less than the first time. Did actually get the tickets for STOMP! for Friday.

Only crappy thing is this awesome development of a sty in my eyelid. A sty, for those of you who are fortunate enough not to know what is (I hate you, by the way) is just like a blocked pore like a pimple. But, when it's on the inside of your eyelid it doesn't have anywhere to go so it swells your eye--and there is not a damn thing you can do about it but wait for it to leave haha. I had never had one until October, and now I have one again. Not fun. Plus it feels like a bruise. Eyeball+bruise=not exciting.

But, anyway, you should check out New Girl On Post. She's pretty awesome, and has an amazing contest.
