Stress for Silly Reasons

I just had a minor freak-out in the school library.

I have a presentation on Tuesday about a certain reading.  In typical me-style, I waited until the Thursday before I give it to even locate the reading. Tonight I had a spurt of responsibility, and decided to get it over with.

Except when looking at the library’s online catalogue, I realized the book I need is checked out until October 15th. My presentation is the 6th.

Holy shit.  NOT OKAY.

So then, with no other way to freak out, I requested every copy of the book in the state.

(My school’s library has this nifty, and useful, little thing where you can have books from another university’s library sent to our library.  Then you just check it out like a regular library book.)

After requesting all nine copies from various schools throughout the state, I decided to google the reading.

And found a well-respected academic site, which my professor has mentioned in class, with the full reading on it.

No freak-out necessary.

No requests necessary.

Not even any books were actually necessary.

That Karma thing again…

The other day, while leaving the grocery store, a random guy came up to me and asked for a ride home.

I stupidly gave it to him.

I know this was a very idiotic thing to do, but it was broad daylight and there were people all around, so I figured it would be okay.

I was fine, he didn’t kidnap me or anything.

Later that night, Karma totally paid me back for giving a ride to a stranger with a hip replacement.

I’d been drinking, because I’m usually drinking. (I don’t know if I’ve explained this before, but Best Friend gives me a gold star on the calendar for days I don’t drink. I don’t have that many.)

I ended up at the best frat house on campus, because they play the best dance music. Rock Lobster, please?

Unfortunately, instead of dancing, I was puking off the front porch.

I can usually hold my alcohol exceptionally well, but the free booze/drinking game combination earlier in the evening had really done me in. And all the people I’d come there with weren’t as bad as me, but still in no condition to help another drunk out.

Some wonderful lady I don’t even know and to whom I will always be grateful gave me a ride back to my apartment.

This is why I don’t have a significant other

I was just eating dinner with my brothers, sister, mother, grandmother, and three of my cousins.

My youngest cousin, I think he’s nine, had made a really good cake for dessert. Like, reaaaaaaaaaaaalllllllllllly good. So good I wolfed down one piece and went back for seconds. But that’s not saying much because I don’t have much self-control to begin with.

But this cake was amazing.

As we were eating the cake, my mother told my cousin, “Women like a man who can cook.”

She then immediately turned to me, caught me dropping food out of my mouth as I frequently do, and said, “Men like a woman who can keep her food in her mouth.”

We then went on to have a discussion about why each single person at the table was still single. Nevermind that the median age was 15.

We determined the reason I’m single is because I eat two pieces of cake in the time it takes most people to eat one, and then eat the crumbs I drop off my shirt.

I think there’s more to it, but that’s a little depressing. I hope my single-dom isn’t solely due to my inability to eat neatly. That just seems cruel. I enjoy food to much to make sure it isn’t falling off my fork/out of my mouth while I eat.

Stupid manners.

I caught a pretty bad case of strep throat the other day.

Not realizing just how sick I was, I went to work.  After almost passing out, my manager sent me home.

Where I stayed in bed all day.

And the next, except for a trip to the doctor’s office and the pharmacy.

Today I finally felt well enough to get out of bed.

But all this time spent in bed seems to have addled my brains.

This morning I took a shower and brushed my teeth for the first time in days.

It took me three tries to brush my teeth.  First I walked to the bathroom, then realized I’d forgotten to grab my toothbrush and toothpaste.  I went back and grabbed them, then got to the bathroom only to realize that I’d grabbed my glasses case instead of my tube of toothpaste.  On the third trip back to the bathroom I got it right, and accomplished brushing my teeth with no other problems.

I’ve only been brushing my teeth for twenty or so years, of course it’s understandable that I’d forget the basic steps.

Broken up.

She broke my heart and doesn’t care.
She says she just fell out of love with me.
There’s noone I can talk to about it because the relationship was a secret.
I’m so fucking depressed. I hate her for ever coming into my life.

There’s Already Enough Negativity Out There

I half-wrote a post the other week, but didn’t have the heart to finish it.  It was an angry post.  There had been some stuff go down at my apartment that didn’t make me happy.

I’m happy I decided not to post it.  None of the people involved even know about this blog, so it’s not like they would have found it, but I’m glad I didn’t post it because I didn’t put al lthat anger out into cyberspace.

I’m over it now, so it’s like it never existed.  Sort of.
