Things I need to get together:

  1. Work. Let's face it, my current work situation sucks. I need something better, or maybe just something different. I'm working on that, but most of the things I'm finding state "college degree required", "bilingual a must", or turn out to be dead ends. I've sent 4 emails regarding craigslist ads only to receive those annoying "mailer-dameon" responses. I possibly have an interview for a Barista position next week. We'll see how that goes.
  2. Health. Since moving out of my obese ex-friend/ex-boss' house, I'm no longer subjected to fast food for every meal, pizza at work, alcohol twice a week, and big, extra lard-added home cooked dinners. You'd think the pounds would have melted off, right? Well, they haven't. And in an effort to appease hunger pains, I'm smoking too much. I'm also not drinking enough water because I've decided that bottled water is too expensive/bad for the environment, and my Brita sink attachment doesn't work and I can't afford a Brita pitcher for the fridge. The clear answer to my dilemma is exercise, but I can't afford to join a gym, and after 8 hours a day of standing, my feet and knees protest greatly to a stroll around the block. I'm a step away from venturing into the dangerous world of diet pills. And don't go telling me I'm fine and perfect or whatever. I'm not healthy, I don't look how I want to, and clothes are starting to piss me off.
  3. Debt. I'm making enough money for rent and some bills. Which leaves things like food and gas being put on my charge card. Not good. This problem will hopefully be solved once problem #1 is solved.

Okay, so really I guess that's it. Not too bad in the grand scheme of things, I suppose, but nonetheless things I'm not terribly pleased with at the moment.
