Almost as if he timed it that way, my phone rang as I was stepping out the door this morning to go get my driver's license renewed; it was my dad. So, instead of finally getting my driver's license renewed, I drove over to his house to help him build a simple hutch for his ginormous door desk. I didn't mind, both because it was interesting and because I don't want my dad to do anything to hurt his back. After we did that and moved some of my parent's belongings out of their FEMA trailer, we put together a baby shower gift for Matt and Debbie, then sat around and talked about cooking for a while; since my dad's been out of work while recovering from his second back surgery, he's become quite the gourmand.

I've lost a lot of time I was going to use to finish up my game's character creation system, so I've got to exclusively focus on that tonight. Of course, no one else in this house is willing to lift a spatula to cook anything, so I'll probably have to take some time out to keep us fed. I feel I'm making good progress on my Game Chef entry, although I'm not exactly sure how best to manage my time since this is my first time trying this. I feel confident I'll figure it out and I'm really enjoying working on it! If I stay on schedule, I'll have the character creation system ready for testing by Tuesday night and should be in the process of working out the conflict resolution system. If you're interested in tabletop role playing games and would like to know more about my work in process, go here or feel free to visit the official Game Chef website; the link leads to my contest group and my user name is JackieSixty.

I'm beginning to get extremely upset with our room mate who has moved out for the time being. I feel like he's just dicking us around and avoiding us at this point, although I also know much of that attitude is related to his own mental illness and he is certainly not the only one of us to struggle with mental illness. However, he is treating us unfairly and disrespectfully and the issue must be addressed, because we should not suffer due to his shortsightedness and self pity, especially not when we'd help him if we were given the chance.
I haven't been updating my LJ because my wireless card finally burned out two weeks ago! I've got a new wireless connection now, thankfully. :)

Nothing much happened, although I did discover late in  the third day of my attempt at The Master Cleanser that my stomach is too sensitive for all the lemon juice and cayenne pepper. Honestly, it could have been anything, but all I know is that I spent an hour vomiting and nearly another hour dry heaving in complete misery over the toilet; when I was finally able to safely leave the bathroom all my muscles were sore from the constant, miserable retching. I doubt I'll attempt The Master Cleanser ever again after this experience and I can't recommend it to anyone else after this, either, although I've known people who have done it without experiencing the hell I went through!

One of our room mates is going through a difficult financial period in addition to a very depressive phase, so he's been staying with some other friends and has become completely non-communicative with us. Of course we're very strapped for cash now, but I worry more about our friend and room mate's mental health and about the sort of people with whom he's living right now; I don't know them and I have a feeling that they may not be the best sort of people for him to be around right now, although that in now way means they're bad people. I just really wish he would come home, so we wouldn't have to worry about him, but I know that won't happen until he's worked through whatever demons he's struggling with right now.

I'm gradually coming out of the deep depression I've been in for the last few months, although it briefly became much worse over the last two or three weeks.

We're going to get our taxes done soon so I can hopefully get some government assistance for college.

I'm too poor at the moment to afford food, medication, my next tattoo, and a paid account so the paid account will just have to fall by the wayside for a while, but I think I can live without it. I can't really afford the tattoo either, but I've cut money out of my healthy grocery budget to make it work. If it weren't for all my medical expenses I could actually live off of my disability income, but ce la vie, and anyway... I can deal.

Warning about the cut below: It's all incredibly geeky and only another Exalted player will be able to understand the majority of it, so just take my advice and don't bother reading it! It's really just for me to reference later, anyway.

After paying my rent and my electric bill I have a whopping $27.67 in my bank account! Obviously I need to earn more money, but no one wants to pay a twenty year old what she deserves to make. Maybe I really should become a professional dominatrix, but where would I get the money to set up my dungeon?

Ugh. I completely forgot what else I wanted to write...

I got a speeding ticket last week sometime and the bad news is that my brake tag was expired at the time! The good news is that TheUglyKnight thinks he can have it fixed for me, I certainly hope so, or else I'm going to have to throw myself upon the mercy of the court, because the Gods know I don't have any money to waste on a fucking speeding ticket! I wasn't really going ten miles over the limit, but the asshole motorcycle cop who jumped out of the fog and in front of my car to pull me over (He's really lucky I didn't mow him down in that fog!) claims that I was and I was too surprised and shaken up by nearly running over a pig that I couldn't think clearly enough to go into hysterics and cry my way out of the ticket.

Fuck the pigs.
