    I rearranged my room today.... so first off, my back really hurts from pushing furniture all over the place. wah.

    But also, I hate trying to figure out where to put all the other smaller objects that I never really took into consideration when I decided where all the bigger furniture was going to go. Like my 3 drawer plastic storage cart thing.... it had a perfect little nook that it was tucked in before. And now it's like, crap I don't really have a good spot for that anymore!

    And the outlet situation. Oh, the outlets. Trying to decide where everything needs to be plugged in, where I need power strips, and the anger that follows when I realize I put a piece of furniture in front of an important outlet.

    But it had to be done so that I could see the TV better from my bed!! :rofl1:

    I know what you mean Southpaw!! My sister and I rearranged our room about a week ago and now there's no place for certain things!! Like, our giant beanbag chair is just thrown in front of our dresser cause there's no place for it anymore! And that thing is so big that its hard to move when I need clothes!! Lol!! And honestly our room is huge, but we have so many HUGE things! (IE king sized bed, GIANT 6' bean bag chair, etc).

    My vent is a stupid vent but I can't help the way I feel! I have to work today for the first time in a long time and I'm dreading it! But it's FRIDAY and I'll have the whole weekend off. But I'm still dreading it! It's not even bad, just 5 hours. And I love my job! What's wrong with me?

    Glad I'm not the only one that has rearranging issues. :p

    I can understand not wanting to go back to work lol. I'm not looking forward to going back next week! 11 days off sure seemed like a long time in the beginning... and now it's winding to an end! And then there's the added stress of it being a new job. Eeek.

    Darn dog learned how to open her toy box. So now, 100 times a day, she pulls alllllll her toys out and throws them around the house. 100 times a day, I put all her toys back. I wouldn't really care, but she requires supervision when she has toys because otherwise she rips them to shreds. Which is why they're in a toy box. Ah well, at least it took her 3 years to get to this point lol.

    I love rearranging things. Every few months I get the itch to switch things up because I can't stand it staying the same.

    It only sucks because of the outlet and dimension issues. So then I want to move entire rooms.

    Lol yep I switch my bedroom all the time. I just get sick of it being the same. I'll probably switch it again in the spring, because I don't think I'm gonna want my bed up against the wall when the spiders come out to play :eek:

    My sister and I have been considering asking our parents if we can use the guest room as our bedroom and then having our room as our "bonus room" cause our room is really big but the closet is TEENY (like literally 2-3ft wide) and the way the walls are slanted, there aren't a lot of furniture options. Buuut our guest room is also my mom's "antique room" sooo that may not happen lol!

    My new vent is that I'm only scheduled for 5 hours next week...what?? I was sick with the flu for a week, then off for Christmas, now I worked today, then I work Monday, and I'm off all that week? I need money. I asked for more hours and she said there aren't enough hours available, and that since I worked this week, she gave the hours to people who didn't work this week. Wtf? I worked one day this week. For 5 hours.

    I think I've hit rock bottom. Or I'm very close. I just don't even want to be alive anymore. I don't know what to do with myself.

    And please get home to your mom and dad. You need their support right now and I know they'll help you get through this.

    Once again, I'm unhappy. Don't have a single place to call my home and it sucks. Feel bad when I'm at my apartment, then feel bad when I'm at Mike's because I'm not at my apartment and I'm encroaching on him. I just want to cry.

    I really want to go to the One Direction concert this summer... yes, go ahead and judge me lol.... but it's obviously sold out and the cheapest tickets I can find (and probably crap seats) are still $300+ a pop. :(

    Which I would actually totally pay for one ticket, but my sister said she'll go if I buy her ticket. I can't justify spending $600+. And I don't know anyone that likes them as much as I do who would actually buy their own ticket lol. Darn popular boy bands.

    I know how you feel Southpaw!! Our Justin Bieber tickets were $500 (for both) and we almost didn't get them. And knowing how obsessed I am with Justin Bieber, that's saying a lot. My parents bought them for us and I payed them back when I got my job. I could never thank them enough, the concert is in 20 days and I can't even express how excited I am. Seriouslyy.

    And don't feel bad I like one direction, too!!

    My brother had now lived here for almost 2 weeks. In those two weeks, he has come outside twice - one time to talk to me and when Leo went near his feet, he kicked him away, second time he came outside with his son to get something and ignored Leo. Other then that, he hasn't come outside to see Leo. I just don't understand how some one who owns a dog not come out to pay attention to their **** dog! Poor boy clearly hardly got attention at the house he was living at before. I thought I'd be doing stuff with him but I thought my brother would still want to interact with his dog. It's pathetic.

    Now I have the duty of raising another dog. Now I know Leo is here for life, I truly hope I don't regret wanting him to stay. Now I get another handy down dog, another dog I didn't choose.. Sometimes things are meant to play out like this though. Maybe owning Leo is meant to be. I hope he continues getting on with my two. Though I'm in love with him so I'm happy he's staying. He's a awesome dog.

    Mum told me that she's not letting Mike take Leo when he leaves (which won't be for a long time) simply because he's done nothing with Leo and I'm putting so much work in to him. I officially secretly own him till she tells Mike.

    At least I got my SBT and I still own my other two! I'm happy. I just pray my brother doesn't get another dog for LONG time.

    I hate that I'm confident in my abilities to raise a dog on my own (as in not living at home), until people voice their doubts.
    Their points are valid, but I feel I can do it. It won't be easy, but I'm up for the challenge. Mom, Dad, etc., some support would be nice.

    I feel like tickets to his concert would be like, a million bucks. :p
    Technically I could pay for them.... I just don't know that I want to lol. If my sister loved One Direction it would make more sense but I think she's just offering to go since I have no one else to go with haha.

    Maybe I should just give up and get Taylor Swift tickets instead! Wish I could do both!!

    Will you still like One Direction enough in the summer to feel that dropping $600...or ever $300 was worth it??

    For me, I don't think any concert, not even if Jimi Hendrix came back from the dead, would have me spending anymore than $100 a ticket.
