Don't Panic.




It just seems like I needed that. 11,521 and today is the halfway day, meaning I should have 25,000-ish. So I'm out $6 + a tank of gas (what I said I'd buy mom if I didn't get to 15k last night) but I'm surprisingly ok with that. Probably because SOMEONE is giving me $100 to do his homework....? Idk...I asked mom about the morality of the whole thing and she said that I was just doing a job (one that I love, might I add, because it's writing) and it was all on him whether or not he was actually going to turn it in. So, yeah....still really inky-feeling, but she does have a point. I need money, he has money, he's willing to pay me for my talents. The whole thing sucks, but I'm not the one paying people to do my papers for me. I'm the one who needs money. Especially since I'm about to make a Meta order with Sarah. Especially since I want to go to Ren Fest this year. Especially since (though I am still living at home) I pay for my own rent, insurance, gas, and most of my groceries (when he doesn't). Especially since I need that money so I can go to Matsuri next semester.

You see, it goes on and on. Really, all it comes down to is that I'm providing a service that he is paying for (similar to selling a gun I guess...?). It's not on me what he does with that service (hunting, shooting at a range, protection, murder). I have no control over that. I don't like it. But I need money. It's done.


Don't Panic.




I just need to remember that.

...can you tell I've got something on my mind? I'm a bit upset right now because I blew about $27 on an Alice Temperly blouse from from Target. It's beautiful, a lovely creme color....AND COMPLETELY LOLI-ABLE!!! But yeah...I'm upset because now I MAY not be able to buy Extras AND La Vie en Rose...welll, actually....NOTHING could stop me from getting either. Scott Westerfeld is like my god and m'dear li'l Bethy's gonna be in La Vie. So. Case settled.

Plus. Got my tuition reimbursement check from financial aid on Friday. Not gonna say how much it is...but let's just say that I'm very pleased at how much I'll be able to put up into my savings.

BUT. A bit disappointed because right now it looks like I'm going to end up NOT going to Japan next summer. I haven't been able to get in touch with Rai at all and I'm REALLY uneasy with how few details of the trip I know. I'd really just feel more comfortable waiting until I'm more financially stable and have a much, MUCH better grasp of the language to go. After all, Japan's not going anywhere, right? (actually, according to my mom, it'll be gone in a few days or so...conquered by Britain or something along those lines...XD)

AAAAHHHHHHH.............Extras.....

Mes petites! Aujourd'hui c'est vendredi! J'adore vendredi! Merci Dieu pour vendredi!

Aujourd'hui est un bon jour parce-que je vais voir ma petite Sophie après je pars mon université où je travaille. Et, aujourd'hui je recevois mon salaire! Maintenant, je peux acheter le nouveau livre de Scott Westefeld, Extras, et je peux acheter l'édition de La Vie en Rose pour octobre et novembre! Aussi, je vais commencer mon travail à Party City ce lundi!

Je ne peux pas attendre pour ce soir quand je peux voir ma Sophie. Je ne peux pas attendre pour le 2 d'octobre parce-que je peux acheter Extras. Je ne peux pas attendre lire Extras. Je ne peux pas attendre acheter la nouvelle édition de La Vie en Rose. Je ne peux pas attendre!

"My dearies! Today is Friday! I love Friday! Thank you God for Friday!

Today is a good day because I will see Keri after I leave school where I work. And today I got paid! Now, I can buy Scott Westefeld's new book, Extras, and I can buy the Oct/Nov issue of La Vie en Rose! Also, I start at Party City on Monday!

I cannot wait for tonight so I can see Keri. I cannot wait for October 2nd because I can buy Extras. I can't wait to read it. I can't wait to buy La Vie en Rose. I can't wait!"

I GOT A JOB AT PARTY CITYagain...!!!!!

Here's how it happened:

Got home from school today and said, "Mom, let's go to Party City" and she was all "Nooooo...I have no money, I don't want to go anywhere if I can't spend money" (talk about shopping issues.....mebbe she needs a help group?) and I was like "Well neither do I...let's go!" SO....we went.

We walked in, reveled in the Halloween goodness for all of two seconds and then Eddie (one of my old managers) walked up and was like, "Hey Megan...you want a job? Great you start Monday, fill out this paper work."

And thus.....I have another job.

Yeah...yeah...I've still got work-study for about 10 hours a week and yeah, I've still got my 13-hour course load....BUT. Now I can put away all of the money I get from work-study into savings/paying for necessary things (i.e. gas, insurance, asthma medicine, deodorant/shampoo/conditioner, etc.) AND still use ALL of my monies from Party City for lolita, cons, movies, gifts, whatevs. AND I AM GOING TO BE WORKING AT PARTY CITY DURING HALLOWEEN SEASON. That = one free meal everyday I work during October. Mostly because the managers offer it as an incentive to not take off to go and get food so you're back on floor faster....but still. FREE FOOD.

Boo. Yah.

WOOOOO!!!!

Anyways....have you guys got any great Halloween plans yet?

ALSO:

I've been wondering....for those of you who have seen the original Japanese subbed (NOT DUBBED on Cartoon Network crap)Naruto: what is your favorite opening and/or ending theme?

ALSO:

For those of you who like Japanese music: fav band/singer and why?

ALSO:

For those who have watched Star Trek (TOS)....what is your favorite episode? (I don't care about the why really....because it is Star Trek and THAT = AMAZING/POSSIBLE NEW WORLD RELIGION)
