Being sick the last few days has put me in a rather tight spot. The first thing is that I missed two days of work--not great. The thing that really sucks is that the dumbass manager who does the schedule just copied this week's schedule over to next--after my shifts had been given away. So I got screwed. When I wrote to him about it, he snottily informed me he's "trying to be fair to everyone". Bullshit--he's lazy and it's worsening my financial situation. I can try to pick up shifts, but if I'm not successful, well, big fat trouble.

The second is I've missed classes, although not so much it's affecting things. I do have a French exam Monday, but I'm not concerned about that--French is easy. I have a history exam on Thursday, which I'm slightly more worried about. That's the class I've missed the most of, proportionally--because it's only two days a week, and I've had three days I've been sick. But still, I'm not all that worried, history is my thing after all.

Also, my house is a total disaster. I'd made excellent progress on the kitchen and living room, and was even maintaining that progress, until I got sick. Now .... yuck. Mail everywhere, couch cushions scattered across the floor because I kicked them off when I slept on the couch and they got super hairy, laundry piling up (although I'm working on that now).

So I've got all those things to work on. The housework is driving me to distraction, because the clutter just annoys me. And I'm stressed about money, since at this rate by the end of the month I'm going to be scraping for rent again--and I do not want to ask my dad for help again. I have plenty of things to sell on ebay (including my a-ha concert ticket *sniff*), but that's really time-consuming to photograph and measure everything (a lot of it is clothing) and write descriptions. But I need to study, too, so I find myself vacilliating back and forth and not actually doing anything. I should probably stop that.

Of course, it's now almost two in the morning. The logical thing to do, of course, would be to sleep now.
