Cleaning and doing laundry is so relaxing. If I had my own washer/dryer I'd probably do it everyday. There's just something about freshly laundered clothes and warm towels that makes me happy.

Went shopping, bought stuff, had McDonald's. It was a good day.

More of the Home Show today and it was not as exhausting as yesterday. I got the bright idea of wandering around and visiting other exhibitors and got some interest from them and also initiated what may be a good partnership between a couple of house painting companies and ourselves. Still tired but I accomplished something.

Still cold here. I knew it wouldn't be long before I got a passive aggressive email from Dad after I told him he is also included in the "no visiting for the rest of the year" rule. Today it was an article on "why interacting with others is good for our longevity". At this stage I am not sure if he is trying to guilt me into seeing him - since his entire social circle is my impossibly disgusting step family - or if he is trying to say I should socialise more for my own long life - in which case HAHAHAHA why the heck would I want to prolong life on this dirty little planet? I have refrained from replying until I figure it out. But I also don't want to be confused again for ages and maybe I should just ignore and delete it. Deleting it. Problem solvered.

I spent 7 hours doing surveys today and didn't even make enough to purchase a $5 gift card lol. Shame there isn't a survey exchange for study courses. There is only so far you can go with the library, google searches and free udemy. Feel like a spinning top, about to fly off the table. Xander has a poopy butt and I feel so bad for the little fella. He has such a hard life some days. I am going to have to give him a butt bath later which is pure torture for bunnies. :(

I am really surprised how much food I still have in the house, considering I didn't spend much more than $100 bucks on it week before last, the biggest difference from my normal shop was that it is entirely junk food. How can people still be dumb enough in this time to believe that healthy food is the cheapest way to go? What morons. Cheap noodles and chips fill tummies for days.

I bought S2-3 of Metalocalypse, and a long black, goth-y dress. Amazon actually delivered the right stuff to the right address! So, I'm sipping coffee and watching Dethfashion (Special leather lol!) I never get tired of the gratuitous violence in this show. 😅 God, I love dvds.

Suddenly I want tacos.

Spent the day playing and transposing music. I forgot how much I knew... It's been fun rediscovering it.

Gave me enough of a confidence boost to email around seeking scholarships for next year. I've been signed up for mailing lists for ages but all that come through are for year 12 students or phd's, so i gotta find someone to help me find the ones for rural disabled unemployed 34 year olds that cover online study. Hope Im not SOL with that...

I am so sore though. I had this issue with the clarinet when I was a kid. It is over 50 years old and not made for female hands. The position of the thumb rest puts my neck out. I am quite stiff on the keyboard too. Singing is going best of all, surprisingly.

There is a book release tomorrow in the regional centre. I'd like to go but driving my dads fancy jeep the other week absolutely smooshed my spine and the thought of driving horrifies me. It'd be nice to go, I think it is a free lunch.

New phone! Yay! I have been using used phones for a decade now, so it's sooo nice to have a brand new phone, finally!

Also went to the mall today (buying the phone) and got a present for my niece who's name-party (she's not getting baptized) is on Saturday, then spent the rest of the day at my dad's, since it's his birthday today. Exhausted but in a good way :)

So I did my second day of work experience today, which was weirdly good. I was at an aquarium as I want to study Marine biology, I knew I wasn't able to do much due to my age, but I could say that it shows my commitment or whatever.
So I started literally just laminating and cutting things out for the education department, and they were all talking about how it was a shame that I wasn't 18 yet. Then 10 minutes later they asked me if I wanted to go and feed the animals (I said yes obviously), it was so much fun! I got to feed so many different species and then I got a tour around the behind the scenes areas where I was told where many individual animals were rescued from which was interesting, as well as how they feed and assess the health of them. I was then back in the education department dissecting a fish.
I didn't think they would let me go near a tank, they said on the first day I wasn't allowed to do anything with the animals (which I already guessed).

I'm usually terrible with money, which is why I was always broke. But now that I actually have a fair amount of cash, I will NOT waste it on stuff I don't really need. No more spontaneous spending sprees! Which is really difficult, with Amazon haunting me. Somebody who's lazy af, has lots of free time, extra cash, and very little self control should seriously avoid Amazon. Of course, I won't. I need new black clothes, silver bracelets, and shoes. These new clothes won't fade because they'll go to the dry cleaners, NOT the washing machine. It's terrible seeing your black outfits fade, eventually becoming sort of a dark grey. (That really sucks!) There's nothing more beautiful than new, UNFADED, black clothes. It's going to be expensive, but the dry cleaners are a necessary expense.

Right now, I'm eating potato chips with French onion dip and a roast chicken sandwich. Also watching Metalocalypse, since I bought series 2-4. SO AWESOME to hear the uncensored dialogue!!!

This sandwich is amazing. 🐖🐖🐖

Getting back to work after a lenghty abscence has meant discovering a lot things just hasn't been done that could, and should, have easily been done without me... or with a simple phone call to me. I'm not sure whether to feel truly needed, or sad for them, there's been a lot of "And no one thought of just doing this one simple thing???"

At least this explains why I got two bouquets of flowers sent to me while I was gone, and three once I came back!

I really need a salad lol. I have thought about going to the pub, but it is skimpy night and I have no business being there on skimpy night. I'd detract from the view. Looks like it will be a packet of chips for dinner. My body is suffering.

I went to the book thingo today. It was good, the first female priest of the area had written her memoirs. It did not occur to me to purchase the book, but everyone else did so I am sure I can get my hands on a copy. Turned out it was in my town so I could walk there, but I missed lunch. It was cooked by locals and I don't have all the same tummy bugs they have. Eating their home made food rarely ends well for me. The small talk sucks the life out of me. I came home and crashed big time. Still recovering from my birthday weekend I think. That really crushed me. I gotta build up those walls again to survive any social scene.

And people wonder why I never take a vacation.
