So it seems at the same time a lot has been happening and nothing at all has been happening. My life is still the same. I work, I go to school (although I'm officially in summer now), I live in my mom's basement and I'm single. On the other hand I've been clubbing a lot more, and hanging out with some other friends I didn't used to spend so much time with...although none of my friends are ignored or forgotten. I've learned in the past few weeks that people I barely know but have interacted with at some point believe that I'm actually a really cool guy, and that means a lot to me. I'm back to spending barely any time online anymore. If asked, I could not recall the specifics of everything, nor anything too eventful at all really. However, I know that I've been enjoying myself and the simple, subtle joys of life. Last night I went with Mo, Kris and her boyfriend Kyle to see The Devil Wears Prada. I absolutely loved it. I think movies move me in a way that most other people don't feel. The only time I really have a sense for my own feelings is when I'm watching movies. It's weird. So that movie, as with many others, has really had quite an impact on me. I found out I got an A in Research Methods. I'm enrolled in 7 classes classes for next semester, although I plan on dropping one, maybe two, but we'll see how it works out. I start my honors clinical classes which will be hard as fuck, so I might find myself dropping below a 4.0 this time around. We'll see. I'm officially a .6 Full-Time Equivalent Core Mental Health Worker at Sheppard Pratt. I'm guaranteed at least 3 shifts a week now (to work around school) and can pick up extra shifts as I feel like it. I also get benefits. Core staff pay rate is 11.15/hr for evenings as opposed to the per diem rate of 11.50/hr, but that's no big deal. It's well worth it when you take everything else into consideration. I have to work today though as well as Wednesday. My brother and sister-in-law are up from New Zealand for the month visiting. It seemed they had so many cool things planned and that I would have so much fun with them this summer, but it's not been that way so far. Instead, I've been having fun with all of my friends while they're being dragged all over the county with my mom everyday helping her run errands and doing mundane tasks with her. They did finally set up a camping trip, but it goes from today until thursday. Since I work today and wednesday, I am not able to partake. They've left already. Isn't life a bitch? I expected this to happen though actually. The only way I could actually spend quality time with them is if I went to New Zealand to visit. I've thought long and hard and I think in 6 years time, after I've completed grad school, I might like to live in New Zealand with them for a little while. They have spare bedrooms and often try to convince me now to come live with them. They don't have much regard for higher education as they've both found successes in New Zealand without any. That's a ways away though. I really should focus more on my life now. Not a lot has been happening, but perhaps it's because I hardly pay attention. That's all...
