it's been a shitty couple of weeks here, but i'm managing to survive.
today i will no longer be able to talk to one of my best friends and i'm very depressed over it.
the only good thing that has come out of today was finding out how much i will get returned on my taxes.

and taxes suck. they take so much fucking money out of everything now'a days.

that is all.

punk out

a lot has happened since i updated last. i've been working pretty much full-time (for the most part) at the organic supermarket. it's not a challenge for me, therefore it's boring.

i'm coming back to Michigan for 3 weeks to work at my old job in Royal Oak!! woohoo.
i get to see the old kitchen gang / Jarmo / Brent. fuckin' a!

my roommates notified me earlier last week that they aren't going to be living here anymore. and that there lease was up before i would be returning back to Miami.
so that meant me stressing out and trying to find a place to live in less than a week. fortunately, i found something today!!! i'm so excited.

i'm getting a dog when i get back to Miami! hehe
small chocolate lab named SnakeBite! lol

i'm in a good mood, but i have a headache :-/

i gotta move all my shit tonite/tomaro after work.
I'll be in Michigan Thursday at midnight. I work Thursday 3-close.
