it’s so dreadful.

It was such an easy answer, I probably should have said yes. But I’m so exhausted these days, and I’ve noticed that when I help others I just end up wearing myself thin. Mimi asked me early this morning if I was up for helping her today, and I couldn’t even wrap my brain around it because some of the crap from last week disappeared for two or three days, and now it’s back – and I’m not even on the last round of it. But I’m trying to have enough energy to get myself ready to go, because I told them (those on my dad’s side of the family) I’d be ready by Friday, and I would be able to head out Saturday. They said they’d be up for meeting me somewhere, and maybe even someone riding in my truck with me whilst I drive. Aunt Charan [thankfully] understood my driving anxiety, and she didn’t go on and on about how it’s a handicap for me (which is extremely refreshing, because it isn’t like I choose to have driving anxiety; it’s superbly embarrassing).

Remember FarmVille? I started playing it again. It’s surprisingly relaxing, and I guess that that is why I was playing it in the first place. I’m also playing FarmTown. The two are quite different from each other. The way I compare them is by saying that FarmVille has 2.0 graphics and animations, and FarmTown is still on 1.0. Unfortunately, Zynga has added so much junk to their games that their games freeze and get all choppy and whatnot too much.

If you’re a Virgin Mobile USA user, don’t open the credit card payment thing – even if by accident – because when you hit that “CANCEL” button, it’s still going to go through. I contacted support about it, and this is the email reply I received:

I don’t understand where the $15.50 credit is supposed to be. I don’t see it anywhere, so… Ugh. I’m always the one to have trouble with my phone and have to deal with support, and I’m tired of it. I really can’t handle/afford to deal with this crap right now.[/spoiler]

Anyway, I haven’t really been eating. There’s not much here besides a peanut butter sandwich – but I can’t eat that without having trouble breathing. I don’t think that’s a good idea, though (to not eat like “normal”), because I’m losing weight again in the way that I did years ago, and that wasn’t good, either. .-. It isn’t that I’m not hungry.

I need to remember to go to town tomorrow and get my updated insurance sheet thing for my truck and then go to the store and pick up some food to eat to get me through a few more days here. I think I’m also not feeling like eating because I’m so … I don’t know what the word is. :L It’s too bad there isn’t a Taco Bell around here. The closest one is in Terrell, on HWY 80. I could really go for some Taco Bell right now. :L

A recent revelation thing I had is that most things that scare others movie-wise doesn’t scare me, but what doesn’t scare others does scare me. One Missed Call – I guess it’s enough to get your adrenaline going, but it’s not enough to scare me. Monster House – how is that scary to even adults? Then again, I love all of the The Ring movies, so… I think it’s because I have a guilty pleasure of being scared, as long as it’s on my own terms.

So… I’ll blog again the next time I feel like it. My stomach just growled, so I’m going to go figure out something to eat.

Let’s hope I get up enough energy to go on with packing! (Packing… It’s such a dreadful word/action for me.)

I’m rewriting my 101 in 1001 project thing. I’m going to start over on it, too, because I never finished writing it to begin with.

Comments on this post

In all honesty, sometimes instead of helping others, you need to help yourself. I know, personally, I tend to always wear myself out by saying yes to everyone, I tire myself out and don’t remember why…. seriously annoying.

You described playing Farmville as relaxing? I should give it a try 🙂

Enjoy the rest of your week!

I used to play Farmville all the time… almost got to level 200 lol (yeah, it was bad)… and then I just go sick of all the new stuff they were adding. It lost its charm… and yeah, as you said, it gets slow a lot.

The Ring movies have never scared me, so I’m right there with you. The first one is one of my favorite horror films.

It was faster when they didn’t have so many animations and things that have animations and all this other mess. …When they didn’t add in all the new stuff.

Now they wanna store stuff on your computer — 5KB to unlimited, and you don’t get to limit it! — for faster loading. I keep saying “no”. Ugh, it’s so annoying, but the game in general is still fun. …Minus all of this weird stuff they’re adding. Ugh.
