I got my new keyboard, and I love it so much. I love to mess around with the color settings and whatnot. I'm really glad I was able to get it before we had to cut back a ton on spending (though it would be nice to have that money now to buy things for the apartment... buuuuut shiny keyboard!).

My mom and I moved a bunch of things (mostly games and books, no furniture quite yet) to the apartment yesterday. I brought the boxes and cases back so I could fill them back up. Right now I'm working on the bookcase where I put all the books I definitely wanted to take with me, and then I'm going to work on emptying out one of the tall, skinny bookcases in the hallway, so I can take that for my READING NOOK. Which I hope works out as well as I'm imagining it will, because I want one so bad. ;-; My mom is going to let me take my grandma's old rocking chair, I think. :)

The day after I canceled my state health insurance, I finally got mail telling me what my new insurance was... that I had just canceled. They told me I would get something "soon" back in October. And now it's been ten days and I still don't have the cancellation notice showing when my coverage will end. /o\ I assume it's ending any day now. :x

I was kind of like, oh nooooo when we started discussing apartment stuff, cuz we have virtually no furniture of our own, but so far it's worked out. :x Alan's friend is going to give us a futon, which is good cuz we have no couch. A friend of my mom's is giving us a dresser, coffee table, and two end tables. She also had an entertainment center, but our TV is like, one inch too tall to fit in it because of the feet on the bottom :( so that sucks. And we might be getting a second bed from another friend of my mom's, which would be great, too. And a dining table. :D Just have to figure out chairs and lighting stuff.

I don't know how finals went... I know I got a 100% on my final exam in customer service, but not sure how it all averaged in grade-wise. The deadline for the evaluation for that course was the day after the mod ended, and I didn't fill it in in time. T_T And I haven't gotten around to doing my other evaluations yet, but I should think about doing that tomorrow. :x I've been on vacation this week, but back to school on Monday for my Excel course, and then I also have an online course for career counseling or something like that. Really hope I'll be able to find a job fast after I graduate. :( I need to do a ton of studying over the summer for my certifications. I would like to take a course on North Street that one of my professors is teaching, but it'll be expensive, so I'll probably have to ask Mom and Dad for help paying for it. If we weren't moving out, we'd be able to afford to pay for it on our own by the time the class rolls around, but I doubt that'll happen now. :x

Half of my class graduated ;-; I'll miss them, but at least the other half of my class is still going to be taking classes with me next mod, and then we'll all graduate. O_O

I was glad to have this week off school because the Nighthold came out in WoW. :D I've been looking forward to this for a long time. Unfortunately, my hunter's playstyle changed massively in the last week, and I'm not sure I'm a fan. :( I know I must be doing something wrong, but I can't really pin what exactly it is, and my DPS is shit. Also, trying to figure out boss mechanics while also trying to get a hang of my new rotation is terrible. I ended up with three pieces of tier, which I'm excited about, but I also feel awful because my DPS is awful and I kept dying. :( But we cleared normal mode Nighthold and I got my super fancy mount. I'm looking forward to when LFR comes out so I can get some more transmog. :x

And I also finished my Trial of Valor quest on my hunter and got the cool transmog set. :D So that was neat. My druid is pretty close to finishing it, so I'll probably do that over the weekend. Anyway, I really miss the old markmanship hunter playstyle and I hope they bring it back somehow. :( I'm almost debating going back to my old, now-subpar talents for raiding because then at least I don't have to focus so much on my rotation when I need to be looking around me for other things. :( idkkkkk.

Anyway, time to go to bed~ might post tomorrow. I have a short shift at work and a lot of packing to do, though. ;-; Hoping to get some furniture moved this weekend. Dad asked us who was going to help us move, and I was like, uhhhhhh...... you? Like... who else would. But he also hasn't even been to see the apartment or anything so I don't know how involved he'll get in any of that. But Mike said he would help us move and Mom said she would too, so yay.

Hello 2017. :D

Things are going pretty well for me. I'm currently in the last week of this mod for school, studying for finals. I've been trying to catch up on school reading and whatnot that I fell behind on, so reading for fun has basically not been happening, which is sad. :( But I need to do well in school, so oh well. ;-;

My LAST MOD is this upcoming one (!!!!!) so I'm really happy about that. My upcoming courses are a career counseling seminar (I think) that basically helps prepare you for interviews, and then a course on Excel, which is good, because I am hoping to apply for a job tomorrow that requires experience with Excel, and I could use a refresher. :x

In other exciting news, Alan and I will hopefully be moving into our first apartment together very soon! I stopped by the bigger store in the area and talked to one of my old bosses to see about setting up a transfer, and it sounds like that's going to work out, so we will be able to continue to pay our bills once my loans go into repayment in a couple of months. :x The apartment itself I really, really love, so yay, I'm very excited. Hoping to finalize all of that this week. :)

Some things that happened in WoW this week that made me happy... my warrior got her first legendary (just some bracers that heal 1% of my health for every 10 rage I spend, but still, they seem excellent for soloing, at least!) and my hunter got her other best-in-slot legendary, the boots for marksmanship! I'M SOOOOO HAPPY. I screamed when I opened my emissary cache and they popped up. XD I'm really excited about this, especially with Nighthold coming up! The boots also seem like they will have great synergy with marks' set bonuses, so it's all very exciting. xD There's also a new patch coming tomorrow which I'm excited about, though I probably won't have too much time to mess around with it until I'm finished up with finals.

I also did a lot of adulting today, which was kind of awful and exhausting, but I did it. :x I canceled my health insurance through the state since Alan got a new job and I'm now eligible to be put on his insurance. I'll still have that for two more weeks, so I went ahead and refilled both my prescriptions. I'm hoping they won't have trouble with my Zoloft because it's a different pharmacy from normal. I would always get really stressed out calling the other pharmacy every month, so I'm really relieved that after this I will be able to just punch in my prescription number over the phone and won't have to deal with people. :x They're also supposedly getting it in tomorrow instead of in like 3-4 days like would have happened with the other pharmacy, so if that's true, I'll be really happy.

Alan said most prescriptions will cost like $30 or something on his insurance from work which sounds like a lot :( so I'm hoping mine won't cost that much. Guess I'll find out next month. ;-;

I also have to call and activate the credit card that I share with him, but I misplaced my wallet when I took my old insurance card out this morning, so I will have to try to do that before I leave for class tonight. At least that will all be automated and therefore theoretically nothing to stress over. And I also arranged to return a hoodie I ordered from the Blizzard store so I could exchange it for the next size up, so whoooooo, getting stuff done.

In other news~ the puppyfluffs are doing well. I love my dogs. ;-; This morning I left the door to Addie's crate open and she came out on her own!!!!! and then ran in circles on the floor at the end of the bed for like 10 minutes. I put a bed down there and she hopped in and curled up and it was really cute, but then I accidentally startled her and she dashed back to the crate. I need to talk to Mom about help with getting her a bath, but other than that, she's all good right now. :) Maggie and Elly also both recently got haircuts, so they're doing pretty well, too. I need to make sure to make Maggie another appointment for maybe early March, just so her coat doesn't get totally out of control again. My groomer does such an amazing job with both of them and I hope she knows how much I appreciate her. ;-;

Also, not sure if I wrote about this last week... I think it happened after I posted, so probably not. I am a master klutz and spilled a cup of milk all over my keyboard sometime last week, so I made a somewhat impromptu decision and decided that since I needed a new keyboard anyway, why not splurge and get a nice one!!! so I got a mechanical keyboard with RAINBOW LEDS and I'm so freaking excited about it, lol. The keyboard itself is also blue with black keys, so that's really cool. I'm super excited. I liked using my sister's at her house, so now I will have my ownnnnn. Clickity clack clack clack 8) Sadly, I won't be getting it until Thursday :( almost 2 weeks after I ordered it, despite 2-7-day shipping from FedEx. But apparently they decided to send it to the postal service rather than deliver to my house, so I need to wait an extra three days. :( But I'm really excited to get it. Money will be tight if/when we move, so it's nice to be able to splurge a bit, but now we have to work on saving money, haha.

Annnnd I guess that's all for now. I need to get back to reading textbooks and whatnot before class tonight. I was all pumped up about getting everything done before class and then accidentally took a two-hour nap. Life~

I wish this weekend were longer. :( I shouldn't complain, though... I got Friday off, haha.

Yesterday was okay. I ran Shattered Halls and pretty much felt like the best hunter ever. XD Chris died on a Centurion pull and I helped kite the mobs down the hallway with a frost trap, managed to chain trap another mob 4-5 times on one pull without the Beast Lord set bonus (\o/ it didn't even hit me!) annnd managed like 500-something DPS according to Caitlin. XD I got some new gloves, too. Not the ones I was after, but oh well, they were an upgrade and I'm no longer wearing my level 60 quest reward blue.

I also played some Final Fantasy III! I got stuck a LOOONG time ago and decided to start playing Phoenix Wright instead... it was directing me to an empty castle and there was nothing I could do there. I looked at the walkthrough and found that the castle I was being directed to was full of treasure (yay!), but was entirely optional. So I went to the castle, got my loot, and progressed in the story for the first time in forever. XD It's fun, but I still don't really get how classes and stuff work, haha.

I'm gonna go take a shower and try to go to school early so I can work on some stuff for fiction. I hate that class so fucking muchhhhhhhhhhhh, ugh. At least I have a couple of chances to catch the bus and still have some extra time before class, so I'm not too stressed out about time right now. Gonna set the AH to scan in WoW while I'm in the shower, and after my shower, I'll get breakfast and read this story for today. I made like 350g from auctions yesterday, yay! Though 270 of that was from a set of Coilfang Armaments I sold, but that's not the point. Yaaaay.

I watched Shark and Cold Case last night, but I'd seen both episodes before. New CSI: Miami tonight, yay! And I realized I just told Kate I'd go to a heroic two hours before... so I hope it finishes before CSI. XD I need to remember to do my posting for Modernism when I get home, too. That's right at 8 when my heroic starts, so yay.

Okay, gonna go take a shower and get breakfast before class!

QQ post.

Today has been one of those days. D:

I woke up and worked on my math homework... took me forever to get like 8 problems done. Then I sat down to work on my paper and did some guild stuff for DotA, blah blah blah. I probably should have only done paper stuff, but it was a nice break (even if it took longer than I expected). I had been copying stuff out of Notepad and putting it into Word because the formatting was a little wonky and I couldn't figure out how to fix it (it was treating things as if they were double-spaced - the line spacing and whatnot was normal, so I don't really know), but when I copy/pasted things in from Notepad, it looked fine....

(I think you can see where this is going.)

The power went out! :D For like three seconds... but that was all it took to reduce me to a thesis statement and a page or so. :(

So I panicked and cried a little D: and then e-mailed my teacher and told him what had happened (that I had lost the majority of my paper). THENNNN I went to log in to Web CT to get another look at the drama so I could write down quotes and stuff I wanted to use and LOL ACCESS DENIEDDDDDDD so I edited my e-mail to send him a copy of the error and ask if there was anything I could do.


It let me in about 30-45 minutes later... but omg. Not my day.
