Got hit on by a straight male while wearing my Superman boxers. There are advantages to the self-esteem to presenting as a cute femme.

Gods, I want a haircut.

The housing search is going stupidly. What's the sweet spot for finding things available in September, anyway? Last year I was looking mid-July and there was nothing left, but mid-June is way too early?

After almost a year living with a rent-delaying, pot-smoking manchild in what I'll graciously pretend is the full 600 square feet the landlord estimated, I feel like I deserve something nice.

As this will be the first time I will be paying for that particular expense entirely on my own, and I still cannot find one half-decent job that, y'know, pays, "nice" is pretty well not an option.

just once I need to be the person who climbs the fire escape. would i be able to make him happy if I could be brave? or self-reliant? or simply more interesting? I'm the one on the bathroom right now because I'm too nice to leave another's stuff vulnerable while they have an adventure. at least i was invited on this adventure for once! but i couldn't do it. i climbed a couple flights and was generally delinquent, but i cannot entrust my life 5 stories above the street to something held together with its own rust.

had a really great night, though. i just wish i were interesting. he's right; i don't like myself. but he doesn't like himself either, and i hate him sometimes for looking down on me for my insecurity i reveal to him when he reveals much worse self-doubt to me but neither of us believe his life isn't worth it.

From an article about the American "Godzilla" film in 1998: "Filmmakers may be afraid to destroy the World Trade Center out of respect for the people who were hurt in the World Trade Center bombing a few years ago."

Used incorrect gendered title in email to graduation coordinator. Miserable. Misread name as Shawny, by which I know two women, but name is Shawyn and Shawyn doesn't use pronouns, not even gender neutral ones. Which seems unwieldly, but fine. Good. I'll go with whatever anyone wants in regards to gender.

Fucking pissed. Got yelled at for twenty minutes a few years ago for not using formal enough titles. Now I always put a title before someone's name until they invite me not to, and it comes back to bite me in the ass. I do not win things.

I noticed the skin around my mouth is kind of yellow the last few months and chalked it up to it being stupid like its newfound acne; tomorrow I'm getting a bunch of med screenings over a little nothing illness two months ago that could be liver-related of which my stupid skin could be a sign of jaundice. Though presumably not, because my eye area is fine. Still. It probably won't be much of anything, but one way or another, my initial screening was weird and now I'm either wasting time or sick. Perfect.

Not even thinking about classes at this point.

Missing Queer Retro Prom for a film makeup opportunity. Trying to be excited about the cool project, but exhausted by the idea of giving up my weekend and event I'd been looking forward to for, say, more than a week for it.

fun fact: non-acetone nail polish remover will clean the white part of chuck taylors. I wanted mine clean to pose as a hipster for the drag show Saturday night, because their shoes are always annoyingly clean for being "old-school".

A lot of people aren't big on bedrooms in renovated attic spaces. A good portion of that dislike comes from poor building practices that lead to ineffective insulation and HVAC systems.

I really, really like bedrooms in renovated attic spaces. They provide lots of opportunities for things like secret doors and wardrobes that are bigger on the inside.

I'm designing one right now in Sketchup based on a house down the street I really like, and got some detailed photos of when it was up for sale last year. I made a bathroom with a nice built-in wood linen cabinet all along one wall...that opens into the (finished, and insulated) side-attic space, which isn't tall enough for anything other than storage. Sounds fun, and looks normal from the outside, right?

Well now imagine a (removable) facade on the outside so that the linen closet looks like the TARDIS.

Having some allergy problems.

Sneezed so hard I got the hiccups.

Hiccuped so hard I threw up.

Do not want.

This isn't an original idea, but I'd never heard of it before that I can recall:

I wanted to make a perforated line.

I thought I had a pastry tool that looks like a spur and was going to roll that over my paper, but I did not have one.

I do have a sewing machine.

It worked okay.

I futzed with the settings a bit.

Now I have perforated lines that pull off way better than any of the signs already around campus, which are usually complete dicks about coming off.

My friend's roommate wanted posters are now beautiful and brilliant.

I am very pleased with myself.
