Type A Genius

That’s what my new landlord called me.  That I’m a type A, overachieving genius.  Okay, I added the “genius” part.

If only my landlord can see me now stripped down to my skivvies with my gut hanging out.  An empty Russell Stover box that once contained a chocolate Easter bunny is thrown amongst the debris in my once illustrious bedroom.  Want to see a picture of my bedroom?

In the bottom right hand corner you can see my $800 bio mat that is now part of the garbage heap.

I made a list of everything I need to do today.  A total of 9 items.  But I woke up at 12 and by the time 2PM rolled around I decided I can do everything tomorrow.

I was laying in bed in my purple feet pajamas playing my game when my brother burst in wanting to get drunk tonight.

I haven’t hung out with my bro in at least a decade, so I couldn’t say no.  He’s my bro.  Family first, right?

So I got up, took a shower, and now here I am in my underwear waiting for my hair to dry so I can go out and get hammered.

All those boxes came from Amazon mostly.  Supplies for my new location.  I unboxed everything yesterday and brought it all to Bozrah where it now awaits its next instruction.

I have all the necessities, I just need to go to the good will and consignment shops for decor.  Marshalls sometimes has some good shit.

 

***********************************

It’s now lots of days later.  Loads later.

I just want this new place to be open already.  It’s draining my will to live.

I made the mistake of posting the job too early.  So early that not a lick of anything was set up yet.  All my applicants found jobs elsewhere.

And another thing…..my credit card processing company will only swipe cards through a secured WIFI connection.  I don’t have a secured WIFI connection.  Even after describing my predicament to my landlord, still….it’s a no go.

I have to use Clover for my credit card processor because it’s the only one compatible with Booker.  Clover actually bought out Booker, so yeah…

I’m trying to see if I can use a mini-swiper attached to the cell phone and if that doesn’t work, I’ll see if I can manually punch in the credit card info – which costs more to do just FYI.

It feels like I’ve spent a gargantuan amount of money on this whole thing and all these little details are fraying at my soul.

I did manage to get the whole place set up.  I’ll not need to spend any more money on it.  It’s done.

But I have a relatively new problem.  It’s been a problem since getting back from Spain, Peru and Bolivia.  I can’t seem to curb my eating habits since hanging out with Hana.  I’m eating all my profits.  I spend about $100 on food every 5 days just on take-out.

I’m writing this while waiting for my order to be ready at Cheshire Pizza & Ale.  I ordered a small pizza and zucchini fries.  Then I plan to get back into my pajamas and eat and play my game for the rest of the night.  In the meantime, all my friends are going out – just about every single night – going out and having fun.

I hope I’m just going through a phase because I just want to curl up in a ball until all my shit gets straightened out.  What I mean by shit is, hiring my two independent contractors and the new place is fully operational.  Then I can relax.  I can relax once I repair a little bit of my financial cushion.  And then….oh boy….and then I just might go crazy and celebrate too big, you know?  I always celebrate too big.

Anyway, I gotta pick up my food.  It was nice talking to you.
