Well I have to say that I fail at life as I have yet to finish unpacking. I just can’t seem to find the motivation for it. I got the essentials unpacked which really is a step up from before, but I just don’t have it in me to continue. Perhaps, I will drink tonight and see if that will help focus me. I know that is absolutely backward, but I am not exactly what you would consider normal so it may actually help.
In other news my Livejournal is no more. I didn’t delete it, but other then the crossposting from here I will no longer be updating it. It needed to be done and while it was really hard for me, I seem to be okay. A large part of that is due to the fact that I have a new home at DreamWidth. It has the same coding as LJ, but unlike most of the imitation sites out there as the coding is actively being developed and changed. I am actually really excited for what is in store and I think that it will do well. I am still contemplating purchasing a Seed account (similar to a permanent account on LJ) but I’m not sure. I am already in love with the place, but it’s $200/USD and that is a pretty hefty amount. I suppose as the month goes on, I will be forced into making a decision as they are only selling 400 accounts. If you are interested in a DW account, let me know and I will see if I can inqure an invite for you. They are very hard to come by, but I will try to see what I can do.
School as started again and I actually think that I will really enjoy one of the classes I am in. At the very least I know that one of my final projects is something that I think will benefit me in the long run and also happens to be something I am interested in, so that is a plus. My last 2 classes were complete bullshit and I was so glad to have them end. I am hoping that I get more out of the classes I am in now, but we will have to see given that my intelligence tends to get the best of me. Lol.
Well, I am off to take a shot and then hopefully start unpacking. Wish me luck!

My first blog in our new home. It’s a bit weird to think of it in that manner and yet it is absolutely true. All of this seems to be absolutely surreal and I am still not sure what to make of it. We still have a bit of unpacking to do but we did manage to get the absolutely essentials unpacked, like the kitchen and our computer desk and computers up and running. For the most part a lot of the stuff we have left are the smaller items that tend to be the hardest to find places for. I do have to say that I think in terms of unpacking we are doing a lot better this time around then we did in our previous place and I think in large part it has to do with the fact that we won’t be going anywhere for awhile (thank goodness!).
It is refreshing to know that a year from now I won’t have to worry about apartment hunting and moving yet again. I still can’t comprehend it, but I am sure as time goes on and we start to really make the place more homey, it will all sink in. I am still trying to figure out the exact color schemes I want for the several rooms here and while this LJ community is helping with ideas– I still have no idea what I want to do. I wish Robby cared more about the color schemes I have suggested, but he’s not very vocal unless it is something he absolutely does not like. So basically I am at an absolute lost.
Susie and Maren are supposed to come out the second weekend in June so I am hoping they’ll be a little more helpful, but even still I have four rooms that I essentially have to decide on on my own because they will only help paint the larger rooms. It is beyond frustrating and I am hoping my lack of inspiration will suddenly reignite and I will have some idea as to what direction I want to go in concerning the rooms that are my responsibility. I bought a color scheme book that I hope may help, but we’ll see what happens.
Amongst all the chaos of moving Hillary came out to visit and I felt absolutely horrible for the timing. We really didn’t get to do a whole lot because we were in the midst of moving and while we did manage to go to the Fall Out Boy concert (which sucked) and Sedona, I still felt pretty horrendous that we weren’t able to do much else. Not to mention her mom and boyfriend both thought that the reason we asked her to come out was so she could help clean which wasn’t the case at all. Things happened a lot faster than anticipated and the next thing we knew we were buying a house. Regardless I feel terrible and definitely have to make it up to her. I do hope that even with the crap ass moving, she still enjoyed the time we did spend away from the house.
Speaking of Sedona, I had forgotten just how beautiful it was. It had been a year exactly since Robby and I last visited so it was nice to see it again. I took a few pictures, some of which I posted on my Flickr and others that I still have to process. It sucked that we didn’t get to spend as much time as I wanted to out there, but it turns out it was a good thing given that both Hillary and I had MAJOR assignments due for class and things were pretty craptuclar on Hillary‘s end. My intuition sometimes astounds me and it really came through this time. Hopefully the next time she comes to visit we can do a bit more– like actually see the Grand Canyon.
In spite of all the craziness of the move, Hillary‘s visit, and unpacking– I still managed to pull an “A” in both of my classes and now currently have a GPA of 4.0. I’m enormously proud of myself given the anxiousness I had experienced upon the start of my program and my absolute certainty that I would fail miserably. All in all it’s a great feeling and I am pretty confident that I will do fine as my program continues– though I don’t want to get too overconfident and then end up failing miserably, so we will see how things go.
Tomorrow I have a half day from work because it is Good Friday, but we still won’t have much of a weekend. Why you ask? Well, Robby and I have to drive out to San Diego, Friday night so we can pick up our washer/dryer. Unfortunately we will not be spending any time whatsoever out there as we have to return Saturday night in time to drop of the Uhaul trailer we will be renting on Sunday. It will be a pretty crappy weekend and if I trusted Robby to only bring back those specific items I would let him go by himself– but he is a major pack rat and will bring items that he has no use for but has somehow convinced himself otherwise. I am not particularly thrilled about the trip, but sadly it has to be done. :cries:
In regards to my previous post, I have decided that the best course of action at this point is just to take it slowly and see were things go. It is a hard concept for me because I tend to be the type that I need to come to a decision and stick with it, but I realize that perhaps in a case like this things aren’t ever that simple. It’s nice to have someone other than Robby who understands my quirks, jabs, and sarcasm and I suppose time will tell how things will progress in our friendship. Regardless it’s not something I am going to spend too much time worrying about.
Well I am off to eat dinner and then get some sleep. It is going to be a long ass weekend and I have to prepare myself for it. I leave you with some pictures of my computer desk and the newest addition to our family, Benji!
