Aaahh! Stupid sickness! I've been trying to sleep since 9 p.m., but it's already 5:30 and I'm still awake. I've had a couple of 3-hour blocks of sleep, but I keep waking up because either my right or left nostril is congested. I've already taken more than the recommended dose of sudafed, to no avail. Tomorrow? Is going to be hell because of this. I have to call out sick from work to go see a doctor, but I have school from 4-9:45.

I still have to buy three more books, but have $100 left until Friday. And I still have bills to pay before then. This sucks. I hate being poor. Oh, and homework! I have to do that, too.

Can't wait for Chicago, though. I'm totally craving Dunkin' Donuts and White Castle.

As for things that make me happy: I bought a really cute skirt at Brea Mall during my break today. And I ordered the Arrested Development- and NewsRadio-themed TWoP Now or Never shirts at Glarkware. Good stuff! Though, that explains my depression for having just $100 in my account.

How to tell if I'm prepared to go back to school tomorrow:

Parking permit?


Good. I'm ready.

The official Rent movie site has put up clips of songs from the movie! Cool!

Rosario Dawson sings way better than the original broadway Mimi, and Adam Pascal sounds sexy! I think I *heart* him. Some of the music sound really odd, just because I'm used to the broadway recording. There's some weird background music for Today 4 U.

Stupid meanies didn't include any songs with Idina Menzel, though. Pure evil!

Also, why am I always in a bad mood when I come home from work?

And, I want to move out NOW.

Two more weeks 'til Chicago! Yay!

After that comes the schedule from hell. I'm working six days a week for the rest of September, with only Tuesdays off. And even that doesn't count because I'll be in school all day. I guarantee that by the end of the month, I'd be a ranting, raving, mood-swinging bitch-monster with a taste for human blood. Feed me!

Dammit, I can't get that stupid Little Shop of Horrors song out of my head.

I went to church for the first time in almost forever today because my mom needed a ride. I think I'm being punished by the higher-ups because while walking toward the building from the parking lot, my stomach started to really hurt. It didn't let up until after mass. Maybe it's God's way of telling me I'm a sinful bitch.

Anyway, I was really hoping to get a whiff of that musty, flowers-and-candles church scent, but instead we ended up seated among old people who smelled of ben-gay and cigarettes. It wasn't fun and made zoning-off and daydreaming difficult. How distracting. Next time I go to church, I'm bringing febreze.

This whole computer in the bedroom thing, coupled with a week off with no vacation plans, is working out really well for me. Despite the fact that I'm definitely going to miss what I would've earned had I worked, I have no regrets because I've actually been able to chat with people I never get to chat with otherwise (mostly because of time difference and internet accessibility). Those small little nonsensical convos make me miss Pinas a lot and aid in cementing my post-graduation plans to the ground. I'm excited already!

Miss you, guys! Mwah!

Apparently confidential stuff ahead. Don't read if you're a co-worker. This means you, Don.

I received my first annual performance review something something at work today. It wasn't a very good one. Whereas my 90-day review was so nice and positive and complimentary, this one had paragraphs and paragraphs of "Kristine should...," "Kristine should avoid...," "Kristine had better do this or she will be pushed off Tier 3..."

Whatever. It was nice to actually be called Kristine, though, instead of some silly nickname that's already half-taken by my brother.

My Parents are going to hate me.

You are Agonistic

You're not sure if God exists, and you don't care.
For you, there's no true way to figure out the divine.
You rather focus on what you can control - your own life.
And you tend to resent when others "sell" religion to you.
What's Your Religious Philosophy?
