And if there’s no tragedy, only trivialities remain.

So I update but I don’t really. I write things in here… but deep things they are not. That must be a good sign I guess? Tho sometimes perhaps I wish I could write deep things. But there are none. Things are good. Still. Not “OMG my life is so incredibly perfect!!!” good, but “Well now, my life is going really rather well” good. And that’s quite good enough.

Work is good. I am busy enough not to be bored, but not so busy I am feeling stressed. I have new things to learn still, but I am not finding it too overwhelming. I like the people. I like pretty much everyone. The ones I liked less have more or less all moved or left. I have my own desk now, which I can organise my own way, and I like the people I am sitting with. I like my hours, and I like my salary.

I will be doing two early shifts a week from now on. That means I finish at 3, how delicious. That’s really still half of the afternoon left you know? Also, as far as money goes I’ve worked out that I’m really not earning that much less than I did at IBM, which is especially remarkable as I’m working a 35hr week instead of 40. Hooray! It also looks like I’ll manage with the money I’m earning, even without tapping into my Lux revenue. That would be neat. All the more to spend on travel and gadgets!!

I am still going ahead with the housesearch however. Oh, I might not even have told you about this yet? I have semi-decided to start looking for shared accomodation. I love my flat, but it’s really quite expensive, and it would be great to have even more money to waste on travel and gadgets. It would also be nice to have a sofa. And, well, I suspect living with others may actually benefit me at this stage. It might end in disaster, but it may be quite fun. And I am currently not too daunted by the idea of moving all my shit, so I should grasp the opportunity.

I am in no rush however, so I’ll make sure I find a nice house with nice people. To this end I have put together a little house-seeking ad (121KB pdf) which I’ll put up on the Amex noticeboard and perhaps some shops around here. I’ll also keep checking said noticeboard, as well as Gumtree and Craigslist, for suitable offers.

My translations are coming along alrightish. I have about 8 days left to do them. I should manage (I can submit them later but then I get less money. God it’s all about money these days innit. I do like the stuff tho. Well, I like what you can buy with it). Also, my mum has now decided early August would be fine after all for NYC because “whatever I don’t spend now you’ll inherit less later, so why should I care.” We still haven’t decided for sure yet tho – apparently it’s up to me again now. (so – help me decide! NYC in August, Paris in September? Or the other way round?)

Something else I haven’t decided yet is Placebo and Lux. They’re back on the festival listing, and Charlie has expressed interest in coming, so it’s becoming an option again. But it would be stressful as I probably can’t get more than one day off, maybe one and a half. What else.. oh yeah, Mika. I hear he’ll be performing at HMV in London next Wednesday, so my Lord and I shall stalk him attend the gig. Curly gayness here I cooooome!!!! 😡 😡 😡

There goes. See, I was gonna talk about deep stuff, about how I feel and things, about progress and self-reflexion, but it ended up being about superficial stuff yet again. Life is good! Entries are boring! 😀

PS Video about Brighton I’ve been talking about. It’s very shaky. And kinda crap. But still somewhat fun.

Perhaps NY is nicer in September…I mean, not so hot!? Unless you don’t mind that. And unless I am wrong about it still being really hot there in August lol. It was on August 1st last year though :p

Yeah it will be very hot in August but my mum loves the heat.

August and September in NY are both quite hot. I’ve been there already in both August and September.

Clarissa said on Apr 18, 2007 at 7:38 pm

Ja I know. I’ve been in Sept and it was hot. But as I said, heat is not a determining factor. 😛

Wow, that ad is detailed *lol* I’ve never seen one like that before.

Clarissa said on Apr 18, 2007 at 8:15 pm

Neither have I. :)) But I wanted to stand out. 😛 Aaand I wanna make sure I find the right people.
Wai printed it out for me today… but I forgot to put it up. 😐

Aaand I just realised that the version I put online isn’t the final one. I added some stuff about wanting a cat, and “I can’t cook but I can fix your PC” lol.
