extended whine remix


Distinctly sorry to have skipped Folsom with my sweetie on Sunday, although given how wiped out I was and how late I got to SJ, I'm not utterly regretful. Just sorry. It is our anniversary (we had a lovely dinner at Fish Market together instead of braving the mobs), and it does only come round once a year.

P-chem homework: evil. Due ~2pm tomorrow. Incomplete, because of 3 problems I just couldn't get a handle on. Appalled at the amount of websearching I've had to do to complete the rest of the set.

Frustrated and mood-swingy seems to describe my day, my week, and quite possibly all the time since I got back from witchcamp. I have been yielding to the temptation of the sugar rush as a distraction from my feelings, and that's precisely the short term fix / long term fuckup that I need to learn to STOP DOING.

Intended to go home tonight. Have not. Frustrated. Staring the predicted financial hole (from taking a week off work to go to witchcamp; the life of the contractor does not include paid vacations) in the face. Unpleasant.

Very tired of long commutes, though I did at least figure out that the reason is that I'm unconsciously waiting for something *else* on my car to fail that I can't afford to fix (it's 13 years old, has 250K miles on it, and is in dire need of new tires, so the question is when, not if.) So now I will drive from Benicia to San Jose so I can drive to Hayward in the morning.

Spent all damned day (that is, upwards of 10 hours) at work trying to install RedHat ES 3 on a Windows box. Have completely failed to either write a bootable floppy or a bootable CD ROM.

Did I mention frustrated?

Current Mood: frustratedfrustrated
Current Music: the sound of the iBook's disk (yes, it's that quiet)

Although I know the temptation is strong to do what Arnold is doing here, hang in there. :) *hug*

Unlike Arnold, I do not find stinky shoes comforting. Just as well -- it'd be hard to find one big enough for my head.

P-chem completely kicked my ass as an undergrad. The only thing I really ever used it for was to not have to take it in grad school.

The departmental secretary (one of the nicest human beings on earth) had similar warnings to deliver. I believe you. Fortunately, I am only sentenced to two quarters instead of the full year.

Just a note...

My undergrad degree is in both chemistry and computer stuff. Feel free to e-mail or call occasionally, if you want to ask a human, instead of a net. I actually liked p-chem... except for thermo, of course.
