|A slew of things to say.
I've kept busy, I guess you could say.
Today was certainly busy.
But the present after the past.
First and foremost, as I've been told some of you have been told already, yes, Jean and I have broken up. It was her decision, but I understand her reasoning and respect it. I'm still frazzled about it, but I suppose that's to be expected. We are still good friends - she being one of my best and most trusted - and I intend to keep it that way.
My great-uncle, my grandma's brother, died the other day. There wasn't much anyone could have done about it; he was ready to go. I can't say I knew, honestly, anything about him, so it hasn't been too bad for me. The rosary was today, and the funeral is tomorrow. I was requested to be the pallbearer, but due to other matters, they found someone else instead. Though I'm not really affected by this, it still adds a lot of stress to my shoulders.
Things are fishy with my job at the FWISD. They aren't sure if they want to re-hire me for next year. Most of the animosity comes from a certain people I will not mention who are a bit too cranky and selfish to take the time and understand others. The decision will be made sometime in the upcoming week. I don't know which way the decision will go - either is possible. I'll let everyone know what happens though.
In other news, I went applying for a new job. Not necessarily to replace the After-School job. The program I'm working with right now ends as of this coming Thursday, and to keep a flow of money in my bank account, I decided it'd be keen to snag myself a summer job. I applied at the Benbrook Library (thanks Amie), and at Plato's Closet. Shockingly, Plato's gave me an interview on the spot! I'm due in for the interview tomorrow before work.
I took pictures for International Take Pictures Of Your Day Day today. I may post them later this week.
I realize I've told five different things to five people, but as I continue to indulge in Death Cab's new album, Narrow Stairs, I'm continuing to find it more amazing than the last listen. It has a different sort of groove and attitude from Transatlanticism and Plans (completely different from earlier albums), but is still good in an odd, novel sort of way. I posted an documentary on Death Cab and the new album on my music blog. You should check that out.
I'm still looking for potential writers for my music blog. If you like to blab about music, do so publicly! It's fun, I promise. Don't get me wrong, the site has quite a number of visitors that seems to read it, and we have a few writers. But the more the merrier! So if you're interested, message me, and I'll tell you more.
Today I tied some disposable cameras around town. One was on a table in between Starbucks and Bed Bath and Bodyworks in the shopping centre on Hulen, near DSW and Marble Slab. The other was in the Tanglewood Playground in Overton Park, across from the elementary school, on a bench by the basketball court. Both cameras were used entirely. I'm really excited to develop them!
I realized that though I may want to take a first semester summer course, I may not be able to. My grandma is going to be having surgery for her eyes (cataracts), and will need help to live and stuff when my mom can't. This will mean I'll be waking up at like, 8:00 in the morning (in my summer, mind you) to go to her house, keep her company, and help her out. Wahhh.
Besides all that, folks, I'm quite STRESSED at the moment. Four and three days ago, I lived by keeping myself busy doing absolutely nothing productive, which I hate to do. The last two days have been lived on a strict schedule and time frame, which I hate to be constricted by even more than doing nothing. There's just a lot going on, and a lot going on in my head. I'm not sure what to think about things, but they seem to be making me drift with the current. So since I feel lost at sea, I suppose I'll let this ocean of business sweep me away to some tropical island off the map - castaway - and see where this sailing adventure has in store for me.
