I started to write this earlier, but I just felt too stressed out to sit down long enough to do it. After a nap and starting the hair dye I feel much more relaxed to do so.
Sarah was over last night/today to relax and hangout, since its our final weekend before college. (Its kinda scary. It gives me warm fuzzy feelings though to think back and realize how many years its been since we first met at elementary school. I'm excited to be starting my 'adult life', but I do feel a little bit of the Peter Pan complex and its unnerving to realize all the responsibilities that will come with it.)
So Eric and I are gonna be doing school shopping this week, and we have to go up early on Monday to get our student ID's and to finish the crap with Admissions. We already brought in the bank statements and his drivers license (since their online system was registering him as a non-resident, which equals a LOT of money in tuition. Even though he's been here for well over a year.) But it should be all clear now when we go in, and to anyone reading this cross your fingers that we get into our wait listed classes. We're right after one another, and I'm 8 in one and 9 in the other (making him 9 and 10) so we should have a high chance.
However...speaking of Monday, I had to setup a vet appointment for Snoopy. :/ He has a lump on his chin, similar to Toby's but a little off in placement. So its giving me a lot of bad memories and making me really worried. The only reason I didn't take him in RIGHTHEHELLNOW (and trust me, I wanted to) is because their exotic vet isn't available until Monday, and I can't afford a $65 exam fee at the other vets. So I really hope it doesn't get any bigger until then, since it'll be around 11:30AM. I'm scared in if its an abscess they can just cut and drain it, but if it is how long can he wait to get it cut before he gets sick? If its a tumor, that means no inner bursting, but what if its cancer? He seems normal and everything, so it doesn't look like he's ready "to go", but its still awful. This couldn't come at a worse time. My financial aid was pushed back like 8 weeks, since it'll take 6-8 weeks to process and possibly another 2 or so to get me my check.
The only upside to that is I'll get all my money at once instead of in two checks, but still, this leaves me with nothing to really afford it. I'm lucky in that I have the money from my chargeback for the dud straightener to cover the exam and hopefully some medicine/testing, but if he needs surgery $100 probably isn't gonna cover everything. I know most people (even my family) are like "Its just a rat", but ugh. He's not "just a rat" to me, none of them are. They're my little family, and Snoopy is my baby of the group. I love them all to pieces, but he's so sweet and cuddly its hard to not have a teensy bit of favoritism, so its just heartbreaking to think about losing him. (Not that any of them getting sick wouldn't be, but you know...)
I have to study up on the Driver's Handbook this weekend so I can hit up the DMV and get my state ID/start on my drivers license on Tuesday or something. I hear it isn't too hard, its just about making the time for it. I'm still pretty nervous about driving though, not necessarily to learn the controls or anything, but I'm seriously terrified about getting in a car accident. While I'm excited about finally being able to help out more, and drive my own car later this year, the risks that go with it weigh kinda heavily on my mind lol. D:
I guess for happier news I got my haircut yesterday. Its around collarbone length now so its about 5" or so docked off, and I'm dyeing it right now. :) I'm still getting used to it, since sometimes I feel weird with shorter hair, but so far everyone seems to like it and as long as I keep the random curls straight it looks good to me too. I should have a totally spotless house again soon too. The living room is already done since I deep cleaned it the other night, and my room I'm going to be doing tonight. Kitchen and bathroom will be tomorrow, then I just gotta lay down the carpet freshener I got and ta-da~ Clean and fresh smelling house. While I love having all my pets, I do not appreciate the smell they can give off/the fur they leave in the carpets. x__x
Anyway, I think I'm gonna wrap this up. I hope everything goes well on Monday, since depending on how much its gonna cost I might have to open up for more commissions. So in the meantime I'm gonna do a speed cleaning of the room, then try and spend a good amount of time drawing and looking online for school stuff tonight.
Hope you all are doing well. :c
Like the title says, this is the status of the artwork I'm working on. I wanted to have something to post publicly so people/commissioners can know what I'm up to. :3

Miscellaneous info for me:
It's still not 100% that I'm gonna be toooo active on here, since I mostly like reading other people's journals when I'm on here instead of writing my own. Gotta get in the habit of writing more about myself I suppose, although stuff I do write is gonna be friends only. :3 I'll keep this public though so people know.
...as long as I was sure I knew exactly what was happening at the places I wasn't going to. I'm the type who'd like to sit home and watch every party that I'm invited to on a monitor in my bedroom."
