ENGL 1301: Journals

August 1997

4:03 AM. I can’t believe I’m sleepy yet I feel awake. I guess there was just too much going on today. And I didn’t really do that much! I really didn’t feel like doing that editing deal, but I knew I had to. Of course, I wanted to get it done and over with. It wasn’t so hard, anyway. Just added some graphics, cut a shot from there, and voila! It’s done. But my mom didn’t really have to schedule a shoot right after I was done with editing! Man, she really wants to do everything at the same time. Look where it’s got to us. Late for work, and the patient was waiting for her. And whatever was she saying? Get some hot packs, she said, and then she’d mean the infrared! I know she’s busy for a lot of things, but she really needs to think of what she’s saying. Or else I’m the one to get blamed for it! Me, me, me. Oh no, I forgot to tell the other people that there’s practice tomorrow. I really need to stop being the gopher all the time. I always do the hard work! Maybe my sister was right. I think I need to get myself an apartment. That way, I could become responsible for myself and I don’t have to depend on other people. Oh well. I have to get another stable job with good income and maybe that’ll help me. And when will that happen? I dunno. For now, I just have to be content on what I have.

Ach, I smell like a cigar butt! Well, I smell of cigarette smoke, not that I really smoked. The Speeds place really reeks a lot of it. I know I shouldn’t have come because of my colds, but then I was having such a good time! Cheryl was acting weird again. I guess she had a lot on her mind. Hmm, she’s thinking of getting back with Joe, huh? I guess it’s for the best cuz she needs a man! He, he, he. Which reminds me of Dennis. Gosh, he’s leaving us! I’ve only met him through the Internet, yet he’s been a pretty nice guy. I could even say my best buddy in the International Superhighway! I will miss him. I just hope he still keeps in touch with Cheryl and me. That was sweet of him to send that first IM we had. I can’t believe he saved it in a file, though. I thought I was bad in printing some of our discussions, but he really saved them in a disk! Well, what can I do? He’s sweet, though.

I hear my sister and brother-in-law just coming back in. They took their time coming back. It’s scary going to the office in the middle of the night like this. 4:20 AM. Oh no, I have to get up early to get my eyes checked. Gotta go sleep.

But still, even though I was bad at pool, I managed to keep Shanta’ on the edge. Not bad, Leiza. I think you’re improving. Keep practicing. Just hope they won’t card you this time. Ho hum, nightie-night!
