I am officially irritated by the fact that I have not been able to write a thing in the past four days. Escpecally due to the fact that the Haiti fic I'm still working on (I know, I know) is JUST getting to a really good part. Another Brother has gotten to a part that I've wanted to get to for the past, uh, year, and In His Shoes is SO CLOSE to being done, but... nothing's coming. I've tried everything that usually works -- writing in some of my growing collection of notebooks, going for long pointless drives on my scooter, taking the dog for a walk, listening to audiobooks. I'm just uninspired.

I'm able to do B.S resume's just fine, so I have something to do with my sudden extraordinary free time. lol.

I've heard nothing from the unemployment office, although it's only been a week since I was fired. (Seems a lot longer when you're waiting, though.) I've heard it takes up to five weeks in my state to start receiving payouts, and that's only IF I'm approved. We'll see. Then I gotta somehow figure out how to get myself approved for going to school at the same time. 

I looked into my transcript from the year or so I went to college (which might be a little bit of an exaggeration, because I hardly ever went, if you know what I mean ) and I have about 36 credits  Out of those, some were for some classes that probably won't be transferable and/or useful, like guitar, weight training in the gym, and this really weird drum-circle class I took. As you can imagine, my GPA blows.

What can I say? I was 17, sick and tired of classrooms, teachers and homework. My parents were divorcing and I was out on my own for the very first time and working two part-time jobs. School felt like a waste of my time and energy and I treated it as such.

But I figure, maybe if I go back and treat it like a full-time job I can get the 30 or so odd credits in a year and get an A.S. Maybe. I know I have a lot more discipline now then I did before. Although I'm not sure how much difference an A.S. would make over a high school diploma in the long run, to be honest. I know it can't hurt, but... yeah.

OR I could just go to http://www.degrees-for-sale.com/ and do the same thing for a lot cheaper. Haha! (Kidding, kidding.)

Now that I've written this out, it makes me realize that I have a lot more stuff running through my head than I realized. Perhaps that's the reason I can't write recently.
