Long time no journal, so obviously it's time for a life update no one cares about! It's been pretty quiet on my corner of the internet. How's everyone doing out there?
I've been very busy. I've had an awful week. I might elaborate later, but it's ongoing, naturally. Gah.
On a less ... something note, I've been writing Mass Effect fanfics. You may have noticed. I'm working on one long one right now, looking for a beta (and brainstorming buddy? maybe?). No luck so far, but I'll keep looking. Also, I have cleared my inbox for the first time in years! I am amazed.
To start off, I was selected for jury duty. The case was for 3 charges of sexual battery against a 9 year old. It was rough to listen to. Halfway through the trial, I started to get a tension headache, probably from how hard I was gritting my teeth. I'll spare you the grisly details, but I was pretty convinced. The other jurors were also convinced. I was the foreperson and so I was the one to sign the charging document. Guilty on all 3 counts. Apparently the judge was convinced as well, as he gave the guy 3 consecutive life sentences, one without the possibility of parole, and registered him as a sexual predator. He showed no emotion whatsoever at being found guilty.
On a lesser degree of annoyance, now that I've completed my degree at UF, I've applied for a second bachelor's degree elsewhere. Unfortunately, all the costs of all this college stuff has drained my money. I'm seriously considering opening commissions because I'm dead broke. To make it worse, my bank account dropped below $100 while I was paying for all my stuff, so the bank charged me a "maintenance fee" for that and further drained my account. When I opened my account at that bank, it was owned by a different company (who got bought out) who didn't have that policy, so they charged me without letting me know I would be charged.
I've also had to get all my documents together for college admission (I've been accepted, but I have to prove I've gotten all my shots and such). Apparently there was a mistake on one of my health forms, so I have to start all that over again and go back to get all my documents signed again. I still haven't been able to set up my advisement appointment, and I'm getting a feeling I'm going to have to drive 2 hours to go to the campus to see them in person (even though I'm taking all my classes online).
