I typed this a blank word document last night around 5:30 am after I attempted to clean/rearrange my apartment - "Sometimes I feel like I’m going insane. Or it might be from not having enough sleep. I tried to clean my apartment and it didn’t work out well. The biggest issue is that I feel like there are not enough places for stuff that I own. So stuff gets put on top of stuff, on top of more stuff, under stuff, beside stuff. Etcetera, etcetera. I cleaned a lot and I’m left with a different kind of mess. Even though I own nothing, I feel like I own too much stuff. Maybe I just need more closet space."
Yeah. I was pretty tired and wired at the same time. And moving stuff around in my apartment kicked up a lot of dust, so I was sneezing a lot on top of it. But, it looks a little more organized at the moment. I still wouldn't qualify it as clean, but we're working on it.
Slowly but surely, we'll get there. "Slowly but surely" is usually what I say when people ask me how college is going. I'm working on my degree, slowly but surely.

In other news, to update you on an earlier blog post, my new phone battery came in the mail a few weeks back. That seemed to be the issue, as my blackberry is working wonderfully. Well, as wonderfully as a blackberry works.
I don't know why the battery would suddenly just go from a full charge to like 10 percent in a matter of moments once I started doing anything on my phone. I hadn't downloaded anything new, nor was I doing anything differently.
I talked to a lady at the AT&T store at the Mercer Mall who suggested I wipe all of my downloads off my phone and re-download them. There were two reasons I didn't want to do that - 1) I didn't think that was the problem. 2) I have all of my apps strategically placed on my phone in order of both importance and convenience. It's an odd, OCD-esque placement system and I didn't want to deal with putting everything in its proper place again.
The lady I talked to seemed to be against the idea of ordering a new battery. But, I did that anyway (in addition to ordering a new case), and it did the trick. Everything is fine in that regard.
On a related note, I may flirt with the idea of switching over to an iPhone one of these days...

It was cold for the first time in a long time two nights ago. I guess summer is officially coming to a close and autumn is working its way upon us. Most people I talk to see fall as their favorite season. I'm not a fan. I prefer Spring. I don't like the idea of fall because I know winter is on its way. And while the leaves look nice as different colors, I don't like seeing them die.

Five or six days ago at work, I was talking to a table I was waiting on. It was a middle-aged couple and they hadn't been to Outback very often. They were asking me some general questions about it. The lady then asked how long I had worked there. After I answered, she asked where I worked at before that. I said Pizza Hut. She responded, "I thought you looked familiar." I don't think it will ever end. Click here to see what I'm talking about.

Magazine update: Life keeps getting in the way of making it happen. Plans are still on. I have some ideas in my head. I feel like the next few weeks should be interesting in that regard. I'll update you on this update soon.
