    I had a really good workout today!! I had upset stomach last week and couldn't work out at all because I was either having constant tummy aches, or would get light headed from having not properly digested my meals, and not eating much.

    Also my spring form pan came in, so now I can make matcha tiramisu for my birthday this weekend ^_^

    Matcha tiramisu... is that HALF as good as it sounds? Because it sounds REALLY good.

    A friend of mine informed me that he has a brewkit that needs a recipe to run through it. I just happen to have a few recipes. We came to an agreement, and made plans for a road trip to the nearest homebrew supply store. I've been wanting to brew my own beer since college, so this is fantastic news!

    I don't know yet, but I hope so. I will definitely post with the results!

    Hooray homebrewing! My dad and I are hoping to give it a shot this winter. Mmmm...

    My friend Push and I have rented an art/creative space that consists of a walled off section of loading dock and a semi trailer.

    This is the space. Our section is the second square of light from the left. We have that, and a semi trailer. I posted about this in the Open Mic a bit ago, but am expanding on it here because, since then, our trailer has arrived.

    This is not a hallway in a survival horror video game. It is the trailer of our art/creative space:

    inside the trailer
    floor plate
    door rolled up

    There are two doors in the side of the trailer, but they are permanently bolted shut.

    this door does not open

    I think it used to be some kind of circus trailer, as evidenced by the ghostly legs that have been left behind.

    In the back here I taped out the footprint of a loveseat I was thinking of putting in here. It actually takes up a lot of room.

    It will probably need to go up against the wall.

    The speakers are in the back there to see how they might be positioned.

    I'd like to turn that back wall into a big whiteboard for planning sessions, and have a roll down movie screen above it.

    I spent the day Sunday giving myself blacklung by sweeping this hulk out without a filter mask. We have interesting plans for it.

    It makes me inordinately happy.

    So. I was dead set on moving, mostly due to a need for crickets, trees, and porch, and secondly due to frustration that I seemed to do an inordinate amount of cleaning up after a rather messy roommate, and ended up feeling frusrated, a bit burnt out and... unappreciated, I guess. I nearly took two different offers of housing, turning them down at the last minute because, while I have some money at the moment, I really couldn't justify the expense given my longterm shoestring monthly budget, and I really do LIKE living with the people I live with, and it seemed stupid to walk away from. I felt terrible for stringing one of the potential houses along, so I attempted to paypal them a portion of the $250 holding deposit they were expecting. By accident, I sent it twice, and it ended up as $200.

    Dammit.

    I did get a nice email from them, and a promise that they'd email me if ever they got another opening in the future, and the owner of the other house I nearly moved to has become facebook friends with me, and also promised to let me know if there's ever another opening in his home, so that's pretty fabulous, actually. I was feeling a bit demoralized, though, and terribly poor.

    Then upon talking to my current roommate, he'd realized that if I moved out he'd probably have to hire a cleaning lady, and so, my rent is now decreased by $200 a month for doing all the cleaning. So my $200 came back to me, and will CONTINUE to do so!

    I might be able to afford a CAR at this point, and I'll be able to just DRIVE myself to nature when I want! Whooo! It all worked out awesomely! I'm hoping things will continue to come together like this.

    @oddbill, that is AWESOME!

    Today I fixed up the Photography page on my site and now it has (wait for it, now) PICTURES on it.

    The crap part today is that I'm sick. But to keep me company I bought Season 1 and 2 of DALLAS. My first time watching the show and am absolutely loving it. Also my mom made me cocoa. <3
