Yeah. You read right. This is for everything that doesn't have anything to do with Eva.

My FML today is political (see today's breaking UK news), so I can't put it here - FML!

Update:

Since Saturday I've been at my parent's house cleaning up my old junk. Fortunately, everything has gone smoothly with the family. No incidents. It's been live and let live. That sure takes a load off. Now I have to worry about the other proverbial load, though -- actually getting my room cleared out in a timely manner. I've been working my butt off for days here and it still feels like I've accomplished almost nothing. Doesn't help matters of speed, I'm sure, that my back wasn't in great shape to start with, and I managed to mess it up even more, particularly the right shoulder girdle and traps. (Chiropractor appointment on Wednesday can't come soon enough.) But, still, some tangible progress has been made. As long as I keep going and don't let myself get "stuck" on anything, the room will eventually be cleared out.

Returning to the apartment today for a couple days' break. It's been really difficult to sleep here at the parents' place and I feel like shit.

Good on you for gritting your teeth and managing to get somewhere with it, though. Here's hoping it continues to go your way!

What's it doing to you? Wrapping you up like Masamune?

It refuses to be flat. I just discovered that it's not actually rectangular so part of the problem has been I've been trying to get two sides parallel to the wall when one must be crooked no matter what.

I have a similar issue with one of mine upstairs. Solution I nailed it to the floor because the kids refused to fix it.

I had to renew my lease for a year and I've been so depressed. It's been a lifelong dream of mine to move to Japan. I even have this old letter I wrote in second grade where I say my dreams are to move to Japan. Due to family issues I've had to take care of my little sister and our two dogs for over a year now and I'm just so depressed. I feel so trapped, day in and out of my boring office job just to afford supporting all of us. I'll probably have to go back to school and get my Master's so I can get a better job and I worry that I'm never really going to feel happy again. I have to pretend I'm fine with it though since my little sis is still in school and always so anxious all the time. When I'm too obvious about missing Japan or feeling sad she puts it on herself and cries even that she feels awful. I'm thinking of starting an anime club at my local library though so I could at least try to make some friends.
