Wow, it’s been a while, Tumblr! I’ve missed you. To say I’ve been a little overwhelmed lately would be putting it lightly, but I’ve been a little overwhelmed lately. My iPhone crashed last Monday, wiping all my data and generating seismic waves of awful shit that radiated throughout my personal and professional life. Hour and a half long interview for my second freelance gig? Gone. Ability to text people to complain about it? Gone. Ntm I had a ridiculously busy week and work and haven’t even started reconstructing my lost interview yet, and the story is due in six days. Ho-hum. The bright side, I suppose, is that I decided to make my first big purchase since
becoming a wage-slave (jk, Marx) starting my job: an iPhone 4S! I feel simultaneously wracked with guilt about privilege and oppression and working conditions and do I REALLY need such an extravagant device, and also really excited about twice as much space and super high-resolution video and Siri, and at least I got a good deal on it because it was an “upgrade.” I have a backup from four days before the crash, but I haven’t attempted to restore my new phone yet, or even taken it out of the box actually, because I’m afraid the restore won’t work and I’ll lose all my precious texts and notes and basically everything I’ve formed an emotional attachment to over the years and foolishly stored on my phone. But hopefully the restore will work and all will be right with my world again. Here are some pictures of disappointed animals, because this is the internet and transitions aren’t important.
I’ve also been super sick the past week. I don’t know exactly what’s causing it, but I have a hunch. Although Friday night I felt good enough to partake in the kegger/house party my roommate and her friend were throwing for their birthdays. Everybody seemed to have a great time. A police cruiser even came by to tell us to turn down the music, which is obviously a sign of an excellent party. Then I spent most of yesterday sleeping, as is my wont. Basically, I’m feeling behind on everything and pressured from all sides (job, second job, class, family) but things could always be worse.
Okay, as a reward for skimming this far, here’s a picture of some famous awesome people at a random party together. You’re welcome. xoxo
