One More Day.

So it’s one day till my birthday.  Yup, tomorrow.  And to say I’m unhappy about it is an understatement.  I am miserable about it.  I don’t get to be with my family, there’s no party, just going out for dinner, I have to work and I don’t get to see any of my friends. Let me just go on a totally self-indulgent rant here:  This is the one day where I can say, “Hey all you fuckers, it’s my fucking birthday and it’s all about me, so let’s PART-AY!”.

But I can’t do that, even though I should be able to, being my fucking birthday.  But instead, I get to sit at work, maybe eat some cake, then come home to a messy house that I’ll have to clean before I even think about inviting anyone over for the weekend (not that anyone would come).

I hate to sound like such a jerk, but every birthday before this I’ve had a big shindig, and this year, the year I turn old, I get nothing.

Oh well.  There’s always next year.

In other news, Hendrix is fitting in well.  Layla has stopped hissing at him so that’s good, she’s now tolerating him a little more.  Also, my term deposit reached maturity yesterday, and was automatically renewed so I had to spend half an hour on the phone to St George asking them to close my term deposit account, so that should be happening today.  And with the money, I’m going to buy a Dell Inspiron 1525 in Flamingo Pink, so that I have a lappy to do my school work on.

What’s that?  I hear you saying, “But Terri, you don’t go to school!”

Well guess what, bitches – I’m going back.  I need to complete Year 12, it will just look better on my resume.  So I’m doing it part-time, a split full-time course.  So 2 subjects this year, 3 next year, as well as work.  And the laptop is going to be easier because it means I can sprawl out on the loungeroom floor with my books and stuff and have the room to put everything.  I love my desk, and it is kind of big, but because I already have so much shit on it, it’ll be difficult to fit any sort of books or papers on.  Oh, and for those of you who thought I did have a laptop already, you’re right, but it took a shit on me.  I tried reinstalling Windows and from what I can gather from researching on the ‘net, it appears that it’s a bung hard-drive.  So YAY.  But I should be able to order the Dell later today.

Anyway, that’s enough from me, I’m sure you’re bored.  Later!

    Hey,
    Thanks for commenting on my blog.
    Happy Birthday for tomorrow, I know you might think that it will suck but maybe your co-workers might throw you a party!
    Hendrix and Layla sound alot like my two dogs when we first got them, our dog we had before we got the new one was called Daisy and she is alot older than him and has never really been socialized with dogs before and when we got our newest dog named AJ, she did not like him and always tried to bite him.
    Layla will get used to him, I know because my two dogs are the best of friends.
    Congrats on deciding to go back to school, I’ll be going up to year 12 but at the moment I’m hestitant as school is too much but I’m going to try.
    I’ve been thinking about getting a laptop for school too although I don’t know of any cheap ones that would be good for school if you know what I mean.
    Sorry about your current computer/laptop hope you get it fixed, they can be a real pain.

    Bye,
    Kayla

    Happy Birthday ;)

    Anyway, I kinda had the same feeling days before my birthday, but it was because I can’t really party since my relatives just lost everything to a fire. :(

    I am planning to get a laptop, too. Something that I can use for my work.

    Actually I’ve only turned 20 – I changed my age over on my mini-profile in the sidebar since it was my birthday, to be more accurate :)

    I’m sorry about your birthday. I worked on my last birthday. You can always make up for it though, why don’t you try to celebrate it on another day when people will be available? I hope you at least had a decent birthday though. :)

    I’m glad your new cat is fitting in better. She’s really cute. Congrats on your new laptop. New computers are always exciting news. :) It’s great that you’re finishing school. Good for you! :)
