If you had to give up one indulgence for 40 days, what would it be?
Nothing, I don't believe in depriving myself of anything. I think it's silly. Trick is to not over do it...

What is the strangest advice you've ever received from a fortune cookie?
"You will buy more Orange Chicken." From Panda Express. I was pissed. But I am sure the fortune was right because that orange chicken is goood.

James does absolutely nothing around the house. I often want to strangle him. He will only do the dishes if I bug him for a week. You know, long enough for them to start to smell. Him never helping me out makes me hate him sometimes. Drives me crazy. I can't deal with it. I don't know what to do. Nothing I do works. And this is sadly a huge deal to me. Bah!
So very annoyed.

School is going well. I get to draw in class. It's fantastic.
I am going to bed now.

|10:08 pm - Writer's Block: Autumn Begins|
Autumn starts today! How do you personally sense the change in seasons? Is Autumn more of a season in itself, or a transition period?
I love the smell. Fresh rain. And slugs coming out of the grass onto pavement.

Update I guess.
I couldn't find a real job so I decided to post an ad on Craigslist to be a nanny. Couple days later I got an email from a guy names Chris who wanted to meet me. I met his family and two days later I was watching his girl, nola. His wife jill actually went to OSU. And he went to UofO and Stanford Law school. He is now a lawyer and a published author! I only know that because I saw his book on their shelf. They also live in the Pearl District which is old industrial buildings turned into condos and lofts. They have a nice place.
James is a stress case. He isn't setting any meetings with potential clients, and that means no money coming in in the future. So that makes me a stress case. Now he wants me to bug my new employers to see if they want to set up a college fund for Nola. Don't really feel comfortable talking to them about their finances yet... Only known them a week.
Ok I have to eat now.

Ok, so I was going to go to the Art Institute of Portland but I felt really rushed into it and it costs so much money. I was then thinking and realized yesterday that I was already accepted to PSU as a postbac student! Why didn't I think of it before? So I guess I am going to get another undergrad degree, but what is different is that I will actually learn a skill in graphic design. And I am sure that a lot of classes would transfer, right?
I am really excited, and feel really good about it. Plus there is enough money in the trust for me to use it for rent and bills, and I might even get a computer out of it too.
Oh, just found out today that James' boss expects him to be at work 16 hours a day studying for the series 7 so he can take it at the end of the month. That's crazy. He's not even getting paid this month. Bah, i really hate that. I won't see him ever. He will come home and just go to bed.
I am really excited about going back to school. Just had to say that again.

I had an interview on Monday. As usual I was nervous and didn't talk myself up enough. I always end up making myself look like a basket case. I don't know why I do that. Anyway, I haven't heard back from them.
James' work told him that he would get paid a grand this month but they took it back. He's now not getting paid til september. I'm scared.
It has been awesome living with james but this week has been off because he's stressed out about work. I'm not always in the best mood because I sit home alone all day. Especially today for some reason. I was in an emotional mood. Stressed. He kept complaining, "stop being poopy.. Im at work all day and I want to have fun when I come home..." I say, "I can't be happy alll the time". we are then watching tv and he just turns it off. "i don't want to watch tv, that's all we've done this week" well that's all I wanted to do because I had cry eyes and just wanted to veg. So then he decided to just go to bed at 830. I saw him for about two hours today. Now im just sitting around alone, watching more tv and the cat chase a bug that is actually outside the window. Dumbass. I hate money
I think I am going to apply to graphic arts school. Work and take a couple classes and work. Mixing art and a career. Love it.
That's all for now. Laters
