My biscuits are officially slightly less in the fire. I'm moving out. I simply can't afford my rent anymore coupled with crazy ass utilities and such, so I'm breaking my lease and moving in with Jeff (many thanks, Jeff!) for a spell until I can get an apartment with roommates all worked out. With this (pun intended) new lease on life, I can get all my bills caught up and put the new budget that I've been struggling with into full swing (I owe that to Marjorie, she's been a great help in making sure I don't spend my money retardedly. Doesn't always work, but I appreciate it just the same ^_^).
In other news, I cancelled my WoW subscription for the time being. Jeff doesn't have a high-speed connection and I'm not going to transfer mine over and put his house through all that for a month or two. Rest assured that I'll probably be back - assuming the DS doesn't eat up all my time in WoW's place considering that Jeff and Diana and Jason and Hudson and Missy and Nick and (soon) Rob are all equipped for massive Mario Kart-a-thons.
I got to hang out a bit with everyone this weekend and I think the social awkwardness I've felt these past 2 months or so is fading away. Maybe because I've got a little less on my shoulders or maybe because I'm willing it away, or maybe both. Whatever the case, I'm glad its leaving me. I don't even know if anyone's noticed, but I've just been so critical of myself in public siutations and I've been trying to keep a little quieter and listen a little more. Much like my spending, it isn't always a successful endeavor, but I think last Thursday, especially was aprime example of improvement.
That's been a pretty solid theme in my mind, too. Improvement. I really want to improve myself in as many ways as I can. I already have kind of started with all the reading I've been doing. That's been an absolute blast (and a really great way to pass the time at work...). With a self-imposed WoW break, I hope to get back into the console gaming groove and wrap up a Final Fantasy or two. I went a little nuts since getting this cable hook-up. Damn you Comcast!
Anywho, I'm just ranting at this point. I wanted to go more into what's been going on lately, but I think i just did. Didn't come out quite the way I thought it would, but at least its out. Catch you all on the flip side.
Its interesting that my grand blog sweep would begin here. I haven't updated my LJ in a long time. I've got to start somewhere though, and this is as good a place as any...
