today was somewhat a little bit productive

Ok so it's 1:25 in the morning so this is late but not really because I have not slept yet, or I have but just for like two hours; a nap.

I just paid for and finalized my application to Cleveland State. I had it all filled out earlier, but the payment wouldn't go through, but it did now! I have very little time to get everything in order with this. I didn't think that applying would be necessary this semester but apparently it is, and also I need to set up an appointment with a counselor from CSU and actually go on campus to discuss classes that I can take through LCCC that would be transferable, so this is going to be stressy as classes start in like two weeks and I don't know even if the ones that I can take will be not full by then so.

But I applied! And so now I must wait.

Also figured out what probably needs to be fixed w/r/t my laptop thanks to Mr Bill Dr Noise which is that the hard drive is going bad. Going to take it to a place that apparently is good and does free diagnostic-y things to make sure which I wish my mom had told me about earlier but what can you do.

Man, I don't know what else to say. I read a bunch more of House of Leaves, and it is really frustrating. I know a lot of people really like the way it's laid out and all but honestly it's ridiculously distracting. I just want to be able to READ but all the stupid backwards text and footnote footnote footnotes running in tiny columns, sideways, reversely is driving me freaking insane. It took me a good 10 minutes a few pages back to trace the footnotes within footnotes back to their origin to find where I left off in the story and keep reading. Just. Come on. And now I'm reading a bunch of letters and one that is a few pages long is encrypted so that the first letter of each WORD actually spells out the message, and not the words themselves. Which takes a good bit of effort to read; I've resorted to writing them out. I know the section is probably available online somewhere but I did not have access to a computer etc arghgahhhhghhh annoying book.


  1. I've always wanted to read House of Leaves, only because I heard it was amazing but without knowing what it is about. Kind of like Catch-22, I just learned it's a war book. But that sounds AMAZINGly frustrating.

    Congrats on applying to Cleveland State!!!


    And, ahh, House of Leaves. Idk if I wanna ever read that or not. D: Let us know if it was all worth it when you're done?


say a thing say something say it say it right now
