    Just because it is "Forbidden" does not mean it did not get out and run. Happens in my neighborhood, did you stop and check on the dog or just keep going?

    Re: Life

    Don't know why, but I'm having a bout of anxiety and tension for the past couple of days including today. Haven't felt it since my law firm days. I hate it. It causes a tightness in my breathing and my throat and generally makes for an uncomfortable experience.

    I am stressing a bit at work regarding my boss, where he's being blamed for shortcomings by the company owner that were not his fault at all. So tired of bosses leaving, especially when we actually have a really good one finally.

    On the Dog note. I waited until I knew the out come before I said anything. Our Pup Ocean had to go in for emergency surgery the other night. Turned out she had a twisted stomach and that caused toxins to also build up in her system. It was a bit touch and go for a bit, but she is in full recovery and should be coming home tonight. The past few days were a bit on edge for her Mama, hard to come home to a house and not have a Pup come running for butt scratches and a good game of chase outside. But she will come home all fixed up, hopefully tonight but tomorrow at the latest.

    Re: Life

    Been meaning to post an update for awhile but life has had me busy or just pushing it off. Anyways for the past six months I've been working at Wal-Mart up until recently left because I couldn't take upper managements dumb fuckery anymore, also I only took the job because 1. It was easy to get 2. It lined up with my schedule needs for the time but now that I'm free to work in the mornings I'm going for something dayshift, so I left. Going to miss the crew I worked with as they were all pretty cool It was pretty laid back even when we were crunching, for reference I was what is called CAP 2 which is the team that unloads freight, then stocks consumables (Dogfood, non perishable grocery, infants stuff, chemical cleaning stuff, and then pharmacy) but we ended up doing allot of shit besides depending on basically the stores whipping boys. Job wasn't bad it was decent work, only had to deal with customers in the aisles and most of the time ignored them but shit like the backroom getting hotter than hell and it's not even summer, having to work frozen section with no jacket and the freezer in that place is fuck off cold and a giant mess anytime something major even thinks about happening made me quit.

    Besides my grandmother is in the hospital at the moment and we need to move her down here and into assisted living apartments so I need my time free to help with that. In better news I built me a gaming PC which I've been enjoying though. So it's been a bit of a ride but I'm already kind of happy not working until 11 and then waking up at the crack of noon or so and going back to a more normal schedule that shit was fine in the winter but I like taking my morning walks now that the weather has been getting good.

    Walmart is a special kind of hell. You have my deepest sympathies for ever having to work for the bastards. As for your grandmother, hopefully everything will work out better for her.

    Re: Life

    So management at my work let me know yesterday that I have received a 10% raise. I've been on the job for three months and I receive a raise. Just goes to show how far a diligent and tireless work ethic will get you.

    Cool. Had a raise of some % few years ago, but since then, workload had at least doubled and stuck at that amount...

    Dang, need more Gundams...

    It's been a long time......

    Hello to everyone, just poppin in to show i'm not dead...yet.
    Last couple of months have been quite rough to me and my family.
    For those not in the know, my parents took trip to Spain this march as my mom keeps her spring holiday around this time and they like to travel around away from the cold of the north.
    Unfortunately both of them got a lung flu one after the other. My mom received proper medication, my dad did not. By the end of the week, he was filed for ER and ended up being at the hospital for three and a half weeks.
    My mom did her very best at her end, contacting the insurance company, getting them flight home, and going to see my dad as often as was allowed. She was a real trooper.

    Meanwhile I was back home, keeping things tidy, or at least tried. Trying go to school,keep everything in order at home and not to constantly worry about things happening thousands of miles away, started to get to me.
    I literally became sick from stress. I was sick for weeks and felt terrible. After my parents came back home, doctors found out from a brain scan that my dad had received an brain infarct.
    When I heard the news, i hyperventilated like hell. I literally thought at the moment it would be fatal. His sister had received an infarct years ago and died from that. I remembered how dads other sister called to our home and I answered. She told me that her sister was at hospital, and I could hear her crying on the other end. By the end of the day she was gone. No other death in the family had impacted me as badly.

    Luckily it was not fatal. My pops has been making leaps in recovering, even though some damage might remain.
    The road to recovery has not been easy. For weeks after him coming back home, weekly to daily roughs became common.
    My mom was getting seriously tired, having to work long days and having to take care of my dad.
    He was still recovering and didn't always understood what he was doing wrong and responded quite hostile.
    The worst thing was knowing that nothing you said could get to him without making him up set.
    I couldn't ultimately take it. I was gettin tired as well. I couldn't sleep well at night, I cried often, I just had no energy or caring for school. I went in early june to my teacher and curator to discuss about it. So I received three weeks of "sick leave".

    So for a while now, I've felt better, but i still become sad over trivial things and I find it hard to get to sleep.This week end I woke up at 8 o clock in Saturnday morning and went to sleep at 8 pm at Sunday evening. To say I'm spent is an understatement.

    I'm ultimately so grateful to every one whom have helped me get through this phase.

    Longish blog, I know, but I needed to went this thing out some where.
