I've been put on medication to try and ease the constant pain in my arms which runs the very real risk of causing my stomach and intestines to start bleeding :|

I've had it for 8 years, and it is getting to the point now where it is impacting my life, including stopping me sleep. Risk I'm going to have to take.

In an attempt to be more active in the forums I decided to start here so that I don't have to create a new thread to complain about things.

Last week a car almost hit me and caused me to go over the sidewalk which caused me to get a flat tire. It costed 85 Euros to replace them, since I had to replace both rear ones, but I had a 5 euros discount, which is nice. It still beats three months ago when lightning struck my pc causing the motherboard to fry and having to replace it and the processor and memory, which came to juuuust over 800 euros.

I changed my office at work, I now don't have to stand the smell of the bathroom, but I have to ... be in contact with other people ... which is bad enough as it is, but it also means I can't use the IRC and I have to listen to the same commercial radio all day. Listening "The Monster"  7 times a day everyday is as maddening as it sounds.

My dad was conned into signing something that he shouldn't so we're getting mail every week to pay up about 1200 Euros. He's checking things with the accountant which has some other cases like that to round them up and make a lawsuit, but it's taking forever and best scenario's probably gonna be costly too. Given that he hasn't gotten a straight salary in years, he's starting to fall in a depression again, which during last one he threatened to stab me while holding a pointy stick, among other things.

I think I'm going mad, and not in a funny, cartoonish way.

Am I doing this right?

Well, I made pancakes today, so I have that going for me, which is nice. They actually turned up rather nicely.
If I could have ANYTHING in the world, I would like a sandwich.

The workload of school is already making me depressed. There's just way too much work work from distance ed. I'm going to have to work my way like a crazy person this year. I'm looking forward to Friday though. I have 3 study periods (2.5 hours of free time with some workload to do) tomorrow and I get to go swimming tomorrow afternoon as my school is going to go to the pool for the next 3 weeks as sport.

It's really annoying though. I have all these study periods at school but I can't do my distance education work since I need access to a windows computer. (I'm doing Software Design and development and none of the computers at school work and it needs to be windows to run the programs) I wish I could re-choose my subjects :/ I would of done history instead.

Edit: I don't know how they have managed to do it but they quadrupled the workload for distance. Now I'm really depressed. It looks like I'll be doing this work on the weekend as well.

I successfully downloaded and installed an old version of the ATI Catalyst driver from the command line. That sounds like good news, and indeed it is, until you realise that nobody should ever need to download and install an old graphics driver from the command line. Dammit ATI, driver upgrades are supposed to fix problems, not create new ones. >:(

FurAffinity United's date/location got announced today. Woo, I can go again! (Last year was my first ever convention, this will be my second. I've been hyping it up ever since the last one ended.)


Oh wait, I'm going on vacation with my family during that time. Q.Q   Something as good as a vacation to freaking Spain is now making me sad. (I do not know the exact dates of the vacation but I'm going to just assume it falls on those 3 days of the convention. boo hoo.)

Pharmacist told me to take my new pain meds, two pills, three times a day.
Packet says one pill, three times a day.
:|
I need to phone my doctor tomorrow and find out if I've been taking double what I have been meant to.

I got called into work to work an open to close because three other people called off work even when they live in town and I live over thirty minutes away. We also received a ton of snow and rain last night, so it's pretty much impossible for me to go to work.
Never turn down tea if it's offered. It's impolite and that's how wars start.

I got "written up" last night at work because I forgot to do something in the back stockroom. This was my final warning. The Operations Manager said if I made one more mistake, I'd be fired.  :o  I don't care. The place I work for is crap anyway.  :P

Turns out I can't drop distance education and take up biology. I hate stupid rules... and the people who make stupid rules (For some reason you can do bio then senior science but not the other way around) :/

I have the worst luck sometimes.
