Non-Drug Induced Insanity

Right now, I am in a strange mood. Stranger than usual, that is. I just thought I’d share that, because when I get hyper, I cannot be held responsible for my actions. It’s like being on drugs, only without the drugs. And as we all know (or should know), indictable actions taken while under the influence of alcohol or drugs are excusable under Canadian law. As pathetic as that may seem, I may need to use it some day. I’m hoping that natural chemicals in the brain leading to a hyper state can be counted as a drug.

Anyways, I strangely have no memory of last night. That and the above paragraph should not be taken into consideration together, because this memory loss was not due to alcohol. And if I could remember what I did last night, I would tell you what the memory loss was due to. Ahh, yes. I have now remembered. Last night was primarily spent playing Age of Empires II, a game which I have not played in a long time. It was fun, but still not that exciting – and that’s why I didn’t remember it off the top of my head. Goodness knows that I should have, since I just finished playing it again today. Bah, whatever. I told you I was in a strange mood.

Today, I woke up and got showered and dressed, and then spent the morning baking chocolate chip cookies. A feminine endeavour, I know, but I figured I might as well learn something useful, since I’m the one that normally eats the cookies anyways. Now I can make them, and then scarf them all down right away. It’s a great deal. Anyways, I mixed up all the ingredients that it told me to mix up, and then I plopped them into little blobs on a cookie sheet. Unfortunately, the blobs were a little large, so they ended up being pretty big cookies, but whatever. They also don’t really look right, so I’m not sure if I screwed something up, or if it’s just the recipe, but whatever. I tried one, and it’s edible. I’m also planning on making supper tonight, so I hope that will all go well and I won’t poison my family or anything. The book said it was an easy recipe, though, so hopefully they turn out to be right. It’s just pasta; I can’t screw up pasta, right? Right? Hopefully, anyways…

Part of yesterday afternoon and today were spent looking at university stuff and getting that reaady. I am pleased to announce that I have now sent off my application to five different universities in Ontario, and as soon as I give them their money, they may actually consider me. I still have to look at Christian universities, but they all have their own separate applications and deadlines, so I figured I’d get the major one out of the way and then deal with them afterward. It feels good to get that done, though. Now all I have to do in regard to those universities is wait and see what happens. Boy, the suspense is killing me.

That’s pretty much all I have to say for today. I got my schedule for next week and found out I’m working five days in a row, two of those shifts being on concession (Concession! Concession, people! Jeez…). Of course, a couple of those are also easy-peasy three-hour shifts, but still – there’s no need to schedule me for five days in a row. But whatever. I’ll survive, as I have always done. Barely survived, but still survived. As for tonight, however, I’m going to a New Year’s Eve’s Eve party up in Hamilton at People’s Church. It should be pretty sweet, with bands, games, food, and a whole bunch of other stuff. Unfortunately, it’s also $25, but whatever. I’ve got money to burn – I think, anyway. It should be interesting, at the very least. And with the mood I’m in, anything can happen, and even if the party is horrible, I’ll still find it great if I’m hyper. So whatever. Hi ho, hi ho, it’s off to work I go – if the word “work” can be defined as “going to a really big party and having a blast.” Meh. You say tom-ay-to, I say tom-ah-to.
