So, I went to a surprise birthday party this weekend, and the birthday girl wasn’t the only one surprised. ::laughs:: Was visiting another friend, who took me along. I had a really good time, talking about traveling, gaming, and life in general. Ant Man was a fun, silly movie, as expected. And tasty food was had all weekend.

Strawberry Pancakes

Still struggling to find a good work/life balance – or really, work balance – I’m still tired all the time. Though, that might just be the heat. Whitehall library is going well, and it’s really good that Sprawl is so flexible, so it’s working out alright. Just still working out the kinks. This weekend is my first Sunday shift, and next week I have a training day on Wednesday, so I’ve got a long run of shifts in a row. But, yay for extra hours. 🙂

Still looking for a new place to live. Given money constraints, it is tricky, which is why I ended up here in the first place. Things have calmed down a bit around here, so that’s good at least. <knock on wood>

Still waiting on a couple on-hold titles, but I’ve made my way through Catching Fire, and I’ve started into Insurgent in the audiobook realm. I also read the first Y The Last Man graphic novel while I was up north this weekend.

Having trouble finding a cheap, big apartment in a safe neighborhood. The one I blogged about last week gave me the creeps driving around it. Most of the ones I found this week have high crime rates. I know it’s a city, but none of the complexes have emailed me back either. Not a good sign.  More looking to be done. Higher standards, lower prices, doesn’t always work out. 😉 Haven’t given up, though. Some say buy a house, it’s cheaper, but we don’t have the employment record or the down payment for that right now, let alone the other fees involved. Some day. 🙂

More interviews for Rich. Keeping fingers and toes all crossed. Still plotting my web take over.

Finished The Ultimate Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy for the second time this week. Nearly done with Orc King. Cat sitting for friends, even the angriest cat gets lonely and snuggles. Made friends with a Taiwanese Mountain Dog and a ginger cat on Monday. Both adorable.

Some doc bills paid off with the refund check. Down to four major ones now, one of which is now below 1K. I’ve got a study appointment next week that I’m getting paid to go to. Thanks to Delve.com. Then I’ll be scheduling a paid interview on a new product after that. Yay, for consumer research studies. I may even manage to buy some new summer clothes at the thrift store with the second check.  Yay thrift. 🙂

Okay, enough rambling for now. See you next week. 🙂
