Stuff to dump

« previous entry | next entry »

I was working on a giant entry I think last week, and it just got to be one of those things that grew, and grew, and I didn't feel like I finished my thought so I didn't want to post it. So I am left with making a practical post. I have electronics I want to get rid of that I would rather give to my friends than recycle. I probably have enough stuff to build a few computers. I have two 17 inch monitors. I also have a 21 inch viewsonic GS815 that can handle better than HDTV resolution, and I know it can run 1920x1400 @ 80 hrz, but it has a focus problem that makes fine text painful to read at that resolution so I think it needs a tune up that would cost about $60". If you want anything speak up.

I'm getting depressed about not having left for Houston yet. It makes me feel like a failure when it comes to whats important. I've never moved so far before, with more than I could take on a plane, and I never drove so far, or rented a room for a night, or signed up for cell phone service, or so many other little things. Any one of them by itself I don't think would overwhelm me so much. I don't remember if I mentioned that my car broke down, and the first shop said it was totaled. It was just too much, and I couldn't handle it, and kind of retreated from the world, and I'm just trying to face the world, and get everything done I need to so that I can do this, and get on with really living again.

I could use a few more people telling me that I can do it.

If everything goes according to plan I won't be here for my birthday. Anyone want to have a get together to see me off? I've been so distant to so many people for so long that I wouldn't surprise me if not many people wanted to.

Man I sound really fun. :-/

Dude, don't worry about it, it's normal to feel overwhelmed by moving. When me and Brian moved to and from Virginia for that semester we would have gone fucking batshit INSANE if we didn't have the other to help pack and whatnot. Then on the way back we had to lug a u-haul trailer on his gimpy Saturn, through the snow. Neither of us had ever SEEN a real blizzard before, much less drove in one. Without snow tires. God has a way with fucking with people who move, and you must battle him.

That being said, don't let it get to you and you'll have it done when it's done. Just think, if we got through that, you can get through a normal move with some work. :-)

I think human society is structured very well for screwing around with the parts of our brains that handle stress.

Animals have it easy, because they do one thing at a time. We know about the potential problems we might have to face way ahead of time, and have to plan ahead, too.

But that's ok. We're not so different as we might imagine, humans and animals.

Just take care of one thing at a time, and you'll be okay. If you feel some excess nervous energy, use it to take care of something (large or small), and then another, until you've spent that energy. Then you can let yourself rest.

I think you can definitely do it. Just go for it. Stop second guessing yourself and just go for it!

Um. You can do it. It isn't as hard as it SEEMS.

I moved to Houston a year ago from Illinois... it WAS hard, but not impossible.

Plus, snarble rocks. :)
