I got lost in this big old world

To say I'm not having a good week would really be an understatement.
Family problems, money problems, and work problems all slammed me this week.

I don't handle stress very well.
I've gotten better at it, actually recognizing when I'm stressed and trying to deal with it somehow without taking it out on those around me.
Sometimes I succeed,
but more often than not, I fail.
I lash out at my roommate, the easiest target. 
Her habits that bug me become magnified and I just get super grumpy whenever I'm home.

I am still trying to learn how to handle everything that has been thrown at me, 
so stick with me. 
I know I am almost the least consistent blogger ever,
but I will promise to try harder.

Oddly enough, I hate writing. I don't know what it is, but writing was never fun for me.
I guess somehow, blogging just doesn't feel like writing.
I live in a world of words, where books and letters and poetry communicate feeling beautifully.
Here, I try to channel my world onto a screen, 
trying to bring sense to myself by pushing buttons and making words appear.
Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
Right now,
I feel slightly better just apologizing you, my dear readers.
You stick with me through dry spells, and for that, I thank you.
I know this post is a little all over the place,
but then again,
so is my head.

In short, I am stressed to the nth degree, and classes don't even start until tomorrow.
I've got some ideas for this space,
so don't give up on me yet!

Just a quick hello...

So sorry for falling off the face of the earth, guys.

Life has kinda blown up in my little world.

As I may have mentioned, this term is going to by my final term as an undergrad. 
That is both terrifying and amazing all rolled into one.
But it also means I have to start preparing for real adult life now.
I've been apartment hunting like crazy, trying to find a place close to work that isn't a kajillion dollars.
Who knew small university towns were so expensive??

My life has also blown up on the personal level.
My best friend since seventh grade recently got engaged,
and yours truly is one of the maids of honor.
Oh, and she also makes the seventh wedding to attend next summer.
My life is insane.

So between cramming in a few more full time weeks at work,
planning my best friend's wedding,
and some personal family stuff,
this little space has become neglected.

It may be awhile before I get back to this - my calendar literally has at least one appointment a day for the next three weeks.

I'll pop in and read other blogs,
and maybe I can convince one or two people to throw me a bone and guest post?
We'll have to play it by ear and see what happens!
