Doctors or no doctors…

Recently, I’ve had the gnawing suspicion that I am suffering from ADD. I am absent-minded, I lose things regularly, I am incapable of spending more than a short amount of time on any one thing at once. When I play videogames, I don’t spend more than an hour at a time before literally having to come off. I read books in a matter of pages, not chapters. When I write, I rarely write more than 500 words in one sitting. I failed at NaNo because I just couldn’t sit and write for 2 hours a day.

I can’t help but wonder whether I should go to the doctor about this. It is interfering with my life, surely, but not in any way which is important. And my doctor… well let’s just say that when I went to him with insomnia his suggestion was to drink hot milk before going to bed. I had to fight to get any help at all.

I don’t want to have to do the same here.

I mean, there might not even be anything wrong with me.

I don’t know what to do.

I have an annoying little habit of collecting figurines. Not the 7″ monstrosities that take up loads of room, no, I mean this:

So many figures

So many figures

That is the top of my computer. It is filled with Crazybones, cat figurines, Pokemon figures, and a Thing from Burger King.

I don’t know where this habit came from. But I know that if I don’t curb it, it will end up as more than the top of my PC. It will take over my desk, then all my shelves, then my entire house. But I do love them so…

What do you collect?

Life, love, and everything.

Few bits of news:

First, I’m back in the job market. Turns out that they didn’t have permanent contracts in January, so they didn’t take anyone on. Slightly pissed about that, because if I’d have known this, I would have started looking for another job a month ago.

Second, my new(ish) PC arrived and I am in love. I’ve missed having a proper PC more than I realised; and having one of my own just takes the cake. All I need to do is get some more RAM and a new graphics card and I’m all set.

Third, I turned 20 at the end of December. How freaky is that, me being out of my teens? It’s just all a bit odd.

Finally, me and the boyfriend just celebrated our third anniversary. Weird, huh? Isn’t anniversary such a scary word? Bleck.

Hope to be posting more from now on, d00ds.

Goddamn Stupid Xmas

I bought a PC and it won’t even be sent until the 5th because they closed for Christmas. I paid on the 20th. What stupid company closes from the 20th December to 5th January?

I had to work 8-6 over Christmas, why can’t they package and post a PC several days before?

I don’t like Christmas that much anyway.

Impulse Buying

Today I got paid, yay! It was about £350, so, obviously, my xmas shopping all but done last month, I went shopping for me.

From work, I bought Digimon World (the original), Pokémon Fire Red, Persona 3 FES, ToCA 3 Touring Cars, Shadow Hearts: Covenant, and, um… a gift for my boyfriend (he sometimes reads this blog so I can’t really say).

Then I bought Dogz and Catz 4 & 5 and 500 index cards and cases from Amazon.

Then I bought a Tamagotchi and a computer (!) from eBay.

And to finish it off, I bought a seedbox, too.

This means I should have about £120 left, discounting the £50 my boyfriend stole borrowed from me.

There’s a twinge of guilt from the impulsiveness of it all.

But not that much.

This sucks

So, not only did I not get the job, but I got one point below the ones which got the job.

Sometimes I think that there’s something out to get me.

What the hell am I going to do now?

Work, non-temporary?

My current job is a temporary christmas job in one of the highest-grossing stores in it’s market in the entire country. When they took on a load of us temps, two of the permanent employees left to go to greener pastures (and pursue musical careers). This means, obviously, that when the temporary contracts end, there will be two permanent positions available as there won’t be anyone to take up the slack.

The interviews for said positions are on Tuesday. I have mine just before my work day begins.

Needless to say, I’m absolutely fucking terrified. Moving out of my parent’s house at the beginning of next year depends on me securing this position, and if I fluff it, that means it’s back to looking for a job at the end of January. It took me 7 months to get this one, and if I have to remain here even 7 months longer I might just go mad.

Panicking won’t do me any good, I know. I’m good at my job, I make customers feel special (even if they’re not buying any-fucking-thing), I get on well with all of the staff. I’ve a good chance of getting it.

It’s just as well mine is the first one, though. If I had to go through the day knowing who I was up against I might just forget about it.

Cross your fingers for me, won’t you?
