unexpected hiatuses seem to be my new thing.  
i think i'm at the point where i've almost given up hope of being able to update this thing regularly. i'm not ready to abandon livejournal, and you guys--i'm not sure i'm ready yet to leave fandom. i have a couple outstanding fics for exchanges, and after they're in i'll probably take a little hiatus from writing, at least until winter break.

it's only the end of september, and i already feel like i'm behind with just about everything.

but i am loving life. i'm finally feeling as though i'm making major breakthroughs with my piano playing, and it's been encouraging and enlightening. i'm starting to love performance again instead of being afraid of putting myself out there.

i'm putting in as many hours as i can at work, but i'm only making minimum wage so it's a struggle to make rent every month, and eating well has been difficult because i feel like i can only buy foods that will last forever since i pretty much have negative dollars on account of rent. i'm hanging in there, because i know that this is what it's going to be like when i graduate. i really don't mind being poor--it makes the little i can afford that much worth it--but sometimes it really does just suck because it means i can't take my boyfriend out to dinner, or get tickets to a concert i really want to go to. but oh well. it's the little things, anyway.

the exciting bit of news i have is that i am actually getting to go home for thanksgiving this year! i had a meal with my grandparents last year but i was stuck in madison, and thanksgiving has always been one of those holidays where i feel some extra sadness being away from my family.

tell me how you've been doing, guys. because i wish i had more time to be around here, and i care about every single one of you. ♥ ♥ ♥.

hey there, it's good to hear from you too!! i'd rather be poor and happy than the other way around, so it's not all bad :)

all the more reason for you and your boy to get busy in the bedroom ;)
... scratch that. it was a bit harsh. But i'm not deleting it because, you know. i'm amused.
srsly, it's great that you're happy and well despite the negative funds. i swear i won't be happy unless i have decent funds, mainly because i have one of those fathers who doesn't want to pay for anything relating to me at all, so not needing his dosh would be a huge weight off my shoulders. but yeah, thanks for the update. <3

teehee! i didn't think that was harsh in the slightest... it made me chuckle quite a bit, actually :D

i'm sorry about your situation though, bb! ♥ ♥ ♥ but yeah, money definitely makes life more stressful. i hope you aren't struggling *too* much

It is good to hear from you but I am not happy about the money and food thing. :-/

i really love your icon, btw! <3!
