In your opinion, what is a reasonable amount of time to pack up a 2 bedroom apartment, move everything to the new place, and get the old place cleaned?

Things to consider - you're gone from 730 am to 5 pm Monday, Wednesday - Friday for work. Tuesdays your gone 730 am to 10 pm for work and school. The only help you have is for the furniture.

I'm in the middle of moving out of my old apartment. A month ago, my landlord told me that he had a bigger place opening up in April, but he didn't know when exactly. I got my keys last Wednesday, I couldn't start moving stuff until Thursday.

My old next door neighbor is hounding me because I'm not done yet. (Her mom lives in the building next to my old one and will be taking over my old place.)

I have to empty two closets and clean a bedroom, living room, and kitchen.

When I got my keys I told my landlord I probably wouldn't be done until this coming Saturday, so just over a week to pack, move, and clean. Is that a reasonable amount of time? He told me he didn't care how long it took.

How many times have you moved? I've moved so many times, Ive lost count. This is the first time I've moved out of my hometown. I went from a town with 12,000 people to a town with only 1200 people.

I've decided I'm going to start updating my journal once a day.

Same for my Myspace blog..although I might not update that one so often.

Today I changed my layout and cleared out some old communities. Tomorrow I'll post a Xander update.

Y hullo thar journal!

I haven't updated in months...


In 2008...I graduated from college, bought a car, bought a house, had another kid.

2009 already sucks. Joe has 2 months left before Circuit City closes their doors. It sucks..but we're trying to be positive about it. Instead of getting my computer and our new laminate floors, we're going to stick that cash in the bank. I'm still going to get my new refrigerator, stove, and our privacy fence. We're just going to have my cousin's company come in and clean our carpets.

Joe is going to take this opportunity to go back to school, I think. He needs to decide what he wants to do first, though.

He's also going to be a stay at home dad while he's on unemployment. He could use the break.

I'm also in the market for a new job. We're not sure how much longer the firm is going to last, so I've already started putting in applications elsewhere. I might have to talk to my aunt and see if she's connected anywhere that can get me a job.

So that's it for now...


So Jack hooked me up with this awesome new computer yesterday!

I now have an Acer laptop with 3 gigs of ram, 160 gig hard drive, dvd burner, built in web cam, surround sound, and a bunch of other nifty stuff.

Its quite a bit heavier than my older computer, but oh well.

I gave my Gateway to Joe. He thought he was getting this one, but Jack gave it to me because I'm about to graduate from JALC, so this is my "yay for hard work" present. Hells yeah. I like it alot.

And Joe really doesn't have anything to bitch about. He still got a free computer out of the deal. It isn't like he's ever online anyway. The Acer is so much better for computer games. I haven't played the Sims 2 on it yet, but I'm going to here in the very near future...probably after I get done writing this as a matter of fact.

Adam was jealous. He wanted this computer and he wanted Jack to give Joe the other one (it had just about the same specs as the Gateway). Jack kept the other Acer for himself though. After I get it online and hooked up with anti-virus and anti-spyware and put his games on it, he's going to take it over the road with him.

This one has issues with the battery and the surround sound. Which is no biggie. They thought it didn't have sound at all. I switched the default from the surround sound to normal speaker, and now it works. The battery is screwed up though. If I don't have it plugged in, it randomly shuts off.

So yeah..that's it for now.


So I guess I need to update more often, now that Kate and Shoe have joined the livejournal community.

I have been pretty lax lately...ever since Rejeana got me hooked on MySpace. Now that I think about it, she was also the one that started me on livejournal too. That whore...getting me addicted to shit....

High School Reunion

So..I'm sitting here, watching tv, and a commercial comes on for a show called "High School Reunion". It says that this is an original show, made just for the TV Land network.

Strange thing is, I remember a show exactly like this one, with the same title and everything, that came on the WB a few years ago. At least I'm pretty sure it was the WB.

Does anyone else remember that show?

And also....
I'm going to Chicago for the first time at the beginning of April. I'm not sure what part of Chicago I'll be in (I'm going for a business conference), but is there anything I should see or do while I'm there?

Work Drama!!

TQC, how do you deal with drama at work?

Collapse )

Summary: I'm taking over most of the work for another employee. She's going to view it as me stealing her job..she's going to be super pissed and create a ton of work drama..

So..how do I deal with this? There's no way in hell I can turn the job down. Not for nearly $15 an hour. It isn't my fault she's dropping the ball, but I know she's going to treat me like it is. grr..

And in case you don't care about that..

Winter storm or not, I'm going to a Seether/3 Days Grace/Breaking Benjamin concert on Thursday. Has anyone seen any of these bands live? How was it?
When was the last time you went to a concert? Who did you see?

More fun from the video store...

As I said before, I work at a tiny video store. New rentals are $3 for 1 night except for Saturdays, when they become 2 day rentals. We also have red sticker movies that are $3 a piece for for 1 night or $5 for 3 nights if you rent 3 of them. Then we have yellow sticker and VHS movies for $1 a night..
