Heck yeah, here again. This time it's creeping up on 2 am and I guess I could say I can't sleep and everything but the fact of the matter is that I am tired and I do need sleep. Sadly, that's not what I'm doing at the moment obviously. I could probably tell you tons of things at the moment: how my mind is racing, how empty my wallet is, how the wind keeps knocking branches into the house... but I won't. Instead, I'll tell you what's been going on (besides watching and singing along to The Rocky Horror Picture Show):
Out with the old, in with the new
One housemate is leaving for the USA and another one is taking his place. My financial situation is so dire that I couldn't even afford to put a week between the transition so I'm doing it one day. It's probably not the brightest idea I've ever had but it has to do. I'll miss all the Indian food. I'll miss all the farting and the giggles afterward. I'll miss having someone around that I didn't mind being around. The next guy coming seems to be sweet and we hit it off pretty well. He's partnered and I've met his partner. They're a nice couple. It makes me wish that I could have made my last relationship last. I'm not sure how I can keep sane with this going on. I am hoping, however, that this housemate will be a good guy in the long-run. I tend to get along with people quite easily, that is, until they see my bad habits!
Going away party?
Remember that housemate I was talking about? You know, the one who's leaving in about 2 weeks? Yes, he's having a party on Friday and I am responsible for writing his speech. It just hit me that it was actually on FRIDAY and not SATURDAY so I had to get off my rump and get it done! I am the king of procrastination. I really am.
Back to class
A new semester starts next week. I haven't paid my fees due to my pending citizenship change. I get to talk to the people at the university next week and pray to god that it sorts itself out and works in my favor. If it doesn't, I am seriously around 50 kinds of screwed. Really, I will be.
The date is set when I can call myself Australian (or even Aussie)
Yes, I have a date and it's approximately 3 weeks away. I have three weeks to enjoy being a full-time American. Exciting stuff for me. I just don't know what I'm going to do after it's all done. Where will I go then? What will I strive for? Maybe I'll strive for a few changes in my adoptive country.
Software is coming
Software, games, etc... it's all coming. I've been working on a few simple games that I'll release for free. Some will be for Windows. Some will be for Mac. Some (but hopefully a few, at least) will be decent enough to play.
That's it! Wish me luck. I'll need it. BUT first I need some sleep, so good night everyone. (My brain says: "Sorry for not getting commenting done!")
