Do not put both your legs on your boyfriend's lap and then lean back in your chair. Learn from my fail.

Ow. I'm gonna have a headache today.

Poem-a-day challenge for April 4, 2015
(Prompt: "write a departure poem." I used an old poem that fits the theme; I don't think I've ever posted it before.)

In the past, some of you have helped me subsidize my good friend glitterophelia's electric bill, and I thank you. Now, her family's home has been sold, and she's been given 18 days to move out. If you can help in any way, please do. Because I just moved myself, and was out of work for four months, my own ability to help this time is very limited. http://www.gofundme.com/qabgbbc

Because it's what I need
ooh

I gave myself until March 1st (hey, that's today!) to decide whether or not to turn in my grad-school applications and pursue my Masters in rehabilitation counseling (basically, counseling adults with disabilities).

I've decided not to do it. At least not this year. Rather than spend next year doing school and work both, racking up more student-loan debt, and changing career paths, I've decided to spend that energy/time/money on actually finishing some writing projects. This week, I'll decide which project(s) I'll be prioritizing, but I already feel happy and relieved, which is one way I can tell it's the right decision for me.

I may start blogging a lot about writing. I will try to be considerate with cut tags. Wish me well.

More garden geeking

I share most things publicly on Google Plus, so I think that you'll be able to see everything if you want to by clicking below:

Photos of the backyard and what's already there, before I put the new plants in. Also, bonus kitty photo.

Video tour of the yard, with narration by me.

And here, have a photo of my counter at work:

Growing stuff
ooh
serenejournal
Dusting off my Growstuff account and getting ready to put things out in the garden. I don't have an especially green thumb, and I know nearly nothing about gardening, but I so want to grow food. And pretty things.

Yes. Food and pretty things. My life story.

Anyway.

At work, I have a pot of paperwhites, a pot of amaryllis, and two mystery pots of stuff. At home, I have an amaryllis that's almost spent. And I love having things growing around me.

Last week, there was a plant sale at work. I bought two salvias, a jade of some sort, and another succulent with spikes. I'll take photos later. Need to take them outside to harden off before I put them in the ground, which gives me a few days to plan where they'll go. I should probably make a diagram.

My seed order came yesterday. I limited myself to one 36-slot seed-starting kit; any more is silly overkill for a starter garden. The backyard is huge, but I need to limit myself to a small space in it at first. I bought seeds for zucchini, fish peppers, cilantro, onions, basil, and a bunch of pretty flowers. In March, my tomato starts will arrive. So that's plenty for now; maybe more than I should've gotten, but I'm sure gardeners know how that is.

Excited!

Wednesday Media Consumption Post
ooh

Reading: Just a murder mystery called Two Graves. There are a bunch of other things I'm ostensibly reading, but literally the only time I'm not too tired to read is during lunch at work.

Listening: I have a musical game I play with myself that I don't think I've talked about here. I"ll put it under a cut to spare your reading listCollapse )

Watching: Hmm. Have I watched anything this week? I don't think so. New job, tired, etc. And James has a new game he's playing, so he'd rather play that than watch TV with me. So yeah, nothing, I think, unless you count (and I guess I should) watching my "videos that make me happy" playlist on YouTube, which I just created and which I'm really enjoying building. Recently added the Neil Patrick Harris opening of the 2013 Tony Awards. When he starts talking about inspiring young theater geeks, I lose it. Every. Time.

Playing: I uninstalled Two Dots and reinstalled it after I won the final level (which is currently 135, I think). Also still playing my other stuff. I really want a new puzzle game for android phones (hint, hint), but with the tired and all, haven't gotten around to it.
