A real update!

I've been super busy avoiding anything approaching communication with people, aside from a few comments here and there on journals and blogs of people I know, or want to know, and that includes writing in my journal.

Not sure where my sudden phobia came from, but it happened just the same. One minute I was psyched about something (can't remember what) and the next I just wanted to read and make graphics and not talk to anyone about anything. Then, yesterday, I went out to eat and ended up getting take-out instead because I started feeling nauseaus--and as soon as I got home I was hungry again.

It disappeared just as suddenly as it appeared too. Last night, I went to an ice cream parlor and I was able to eat my bananna split sundae just fine. Then, today, I found myself wanting to update my journal, and here I am, updating.

Maybe it has something to do with recent events.

Last Friday, I read and started to make some wallpapers, but had to turn the computer off because it started storming pretty badly. I stayed up as late as I could, hoping it would leave off storming long enough for me to at least finish my graphics, but it didn't show any signs of slowing soon so I went to bed.

The next morning, Saturday, the living room ceiling fell. It had been cracked for a while, and everyone said it was going to fall, but every time I offered to go get the supplies needed to fix it, the people who were going to be doing the work disappeared.

So, now, we've got this huge gaping hole in our ceiling, the length of the room. And the people who have said they could fix it are gone. Haven't heard from them since they cleaned the mess up Saturday.

Thankfully, nothing was damaged (except the ceiling--and a scrape on my arm from where I got clipped by sheetrock), so no worries about not having a computer or TV.

That night, my mom and I had to go babysit. We stayed the night and into the next day because of all the storms (and I hate driving in the rain). Then, it kept storming, flooding, so we had to stay an extra night. And Monday the sun was shining and everything was cool. I finished my graphics and put them up, and that's about when I started avoiding being online. I'd get on to check my mail, and that's about it.

I seem to have regained my sense of humor through all this though, and find everything that's happened to be absolutely hilarious.

Life isn't all sunshine and roses, so you either let it get you down, pull you under, or you roll with the punches and come out on top at the end.

And yes, I did just mix metaphors :p

    It's been a long time since I've written. A...really long time. In that time I have discovered this love of ellipses, since one of my characters…
