Well Shit

"If you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there." - Lewis Carroll

I checked in with the archaeology job again. Apparently they still haven't finalized things with their clients up north, which means that they still don't know if they can hire additional people for the field season. My contact seemed frustrated by this - but not frustrated at me. She again encouraged me to keep in touch.

But things are too close to the wire. I'll be homeless on the 31st. I can't stay here.

So I've bought my plane ticket to Newfoundland. I'll be heading that way on the 30th.

In theory I know that this hasn't changed my situation at all. I could still get this job and head to Calgary and actually get to use my degree for once. If everything turns out well than this will just be a visit with my brother that I really need.

But it's really hard not to feel discouraged.

Plus, I'm in the midst of packing and moving. It's hard not to feel discouraged at this point. On the one hand: Why do I have so much stuff? On the other hand: All my worldly possessions fit into roughly 17 boxes/bags (including the duffles I'm taking on the plane).

I really need to do my laundry. It's kind of a massive mountain of badness at the moment. And I need clean clothes - for general life reasons - but also because I'm heading off on my Cuba vacation next week! So I need to have cute clean clothes for that. (And I kinda already wore - and haven't since washed - all the cute summery clothes I bought in order to be cute in Cuba.) So there's that. And then I'm moving in the coming week (date still slightly flexible - I think I need to call the landlords and poke a bit) so I don't want to pack up dirty clothes, which will then stay packed for the week while I'm in Cuba. 'Cause that's just gross (like leaving your dirty laundry in a mountain on the floor you ask? - well, you're right, but I always have the best intentions). But on the other hand, in my new place I don't have to pay for laundry - and I totally do here. So here's the question: cheapness? or grossness? Which is more important?

The other factor - which is kinda stupid, I'll admit - is that I'm meeting up with a friend to go and vote at noon. (Yay Democracy!) That's in like forty minutes! I can't start a load and have it done by then! (Yes I can. Our washers take about half an hour.) But I do prefer to marathon my laundry and get it all out of the way at the same time.

What I should be doing right now instead of posting in my journal and otherwise wasting time is sorting the mountain of laundry. That way, when I get back after voting I'll be able to have my marathon session.

But - I Don'wanna! I just want to sit around here and pretend I'm done with my school work (I'm not. There's still a take home exam - but I'm letting that percolate. It's an important step in my process *hair flip*. Honest.) and also pretend that downloading episodes of Castle on my fast campus connection is a good way to prepare myself for moving, instead of you know - packing.

That's right friends. I am just that good. See you on the flip side!
