buffalo exchange took a fairly large bite out of my clothing pileup though, so I was able to buy food for myself and the cats. the trip to aquarius was so quick that I just came back, plopped down the bag of cds, and picked up the bags of clothes. back out the door. I think I've walked about three miles already today and I haven't been more than four blocks from my house.
I finally nailed one of the web design gigs! this will be good, but I will have to work quickly to make it worth my while. I am too tired to figure out a contract today but I will work on one overnight and get it to them and then I should get a nice deposit for the work I have already done and that will be quite helpful for a number of things.
I also put up a craigslist ad for home computer support last night and already got one response. I will respond to this person tonight as well. I must figure out how not to give too much advice away for free. I think I know what he needs to do, but he probably needs to be led through the process, and I might as well go to his house and do that with him. I'm not really that eager to start meeting random strangers all the time, but this is a stopgap practice that may or may not continue, depending on how it pans out. I really need a steady gig. constant exposure to new people takes it out of me so quickly that I begin to collapse in a matter of days.
no word from SFAI yet. I am not hopeful.
I'm beat. I don't know if I'll make it out tonight or not. therapy is at 2 so I will be in bed at 3:30 or 4 at the earliest. that means I should try to stay in bed till midnight if I want to have a productive night. one of the more interesting things about my variable bedtime is that it takes me a while to figure out whether I should get up if I wake up in the middle of my "night." whether or not it is light makes no difference. sometimes I can fix it in my head right before I go to sleep that I mustn't get up till x hour, but I still have to look at my watch to determine what time it is. again, light or dark outside don't help me. I can no longer recognize the difference between twilight and dawn.
I find this fascinating myself. maybe you have to be there.
