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.
