A hot mess

That's what my life is. A hot damn mess. My room is messy. Right now there is a dress strewn across my bed that I keep procrastinating taking to the dry cleaners. It has literally never been washed. I know, kinda gross, but whatevz. There is a growing pile of DVDs on the floor that have gradually made their way out of the box they've lived in since I moved home. There are at least two stacks of unopened mail and unread magazines (read: the Alumni Review) that have accumulated since I decided that getting mail is like my least favorite thing ever. I used to like getting mail, because A would send me sweet letters, which a boy has never done for me before. But I guess I fucked that up.

It's not just my room. My head is a mess with all the things I know I have to do before I move. My internship ends in < three weeks, and in that time I have three outstanding stories and a book review to write. These also require transcribing and reading a book, respectively. This is all, of course, on top of my regular daily intern duties. Oh, and what about Xmas shopping? Um, how is it already December? C's birthday is in 7 days! Ah! Oh, and we're officially in recession. Awesome. But, in good news, I am really excited about this blog. It makes me happy to know that people like to read my writing and care enough about my absurd existence to take time to read my ranting, etc. In fact, in the first 24 hours of the blog's existence, at least 61 of you cared! That's how many unique visitors I had. And there were 97 total page loads. Respectable. Here's a Google map of y'all, from launch until about 10:30 last night when my tired ass went to bed:

Why's it so small? Twss.

Sorry, y'all. I tried to make the map bigger but it just ended up looking pixelated, which it kinda still does. Point is that's a respectable spread, so thanks. Especially that guy in the middle of the ocean on the equator. Impressive. Edit: Apparently because of the format of mah blog, I can't display the part of the map that shows the gBalloon on the equator underneath Ghana in the middle of the ocean. This clearly signifies that someone used their iPhone or something to visit my page while clinging to a dingy for dear life. Awesome.

Until next time, majorly yours.

  1. Jesus, I just left you a really long comment and it didn't post. So to shorten it: Read Alumni Review, try to guess which fabulous (not-so-fabulous) stories are mine with no byline. Also, I'm applying for a 6-month internship at your current co, mayhap I'll follow in your footsteps there. OK let's try this again...
