Booze and Zombies

So, it's exam week and I have nothing to do tomorrow. As such, I am drinking an icy margarita and watching Dawn of the Dead, which always delivers on the lulz.

In the past few weeks I have been feeling lost. I have to move back home this summer after two years of relative independence (that is, living at college). Last summer I was able to fund an apartment but this summer I don't even know if I have a job as of yet.

The main thing on my mind, however, is that I will be living at home. I don't think I can live in my parent's house without going completely insane. I love my parents, they're great people who have always provided for me but living under the same roof as them is an undesirable prospect. Seriously, the only thing I have to look forward to is good food and beer (which I am enormously grateful for, but it doesn't make up for living at home). I guess I need to take everything in stride, but last time I lived with my parents (senior year of HS (I'm a junior in college now) I went completely insane and ran away from home for a month.

Ugh, I'm not sure what to do. I'll be leaving college this Sunday and will be at home until August 2nd (when I head back to school for RA training). I think I need to get a job so that I have a good reason to be out of the house.

I just needed to rant. Thanks to anybody who's listening... or rather, reading.

Feasts and Parents

Can't believe you like beer! Although I will not contest the good food - there's almost nothing better than a good feasting.

And parents can be so rats, but I guess they do quite a lot for us. Lol, I guess they have to put up with us too.

Hehe, I love beer. Good beer, that is. My favorite is Samuel Adams Boston Lager. Delicious :P

It's an acquired taste, really. I hated it when I first tried it but after a while you sort of get used to it and then you start to like it. It's similar to coffee, in that aspect. Not that it tastes like coffee, but in getting used to the taste.

Just know it's temporary and make sure you stay away from their house as much as you can. Definately get a job. But I know what you mean- as soon as you go home, you really go home. You'll only ever be a child in your parents house.

Try and look at it as if you're staying with family rather than living there.

Agh, I know. At school I'm a resident adviser, so I have a level of independence that most college students don't. Essentially, I serve as the "parent" or perhaps, babysitter, of thirty freshmen.
