Note to self: get back on budget! I let myself loose in February; I think I have been too relieved to have a steady paycheck, and Katsu was the trigger to let a year of "I can't buy anything that is not absolutely necessary for survival" evaporate. While it's not like I'm spending myself into a black hole of debt, I'm certainly not helping myself out by being less frugal than I could be. I need to focus! I've been in New City nearly a year now, and I would like to move to a less crowded space/one where I can claim the right to be lazy without having anyone correct me. Don't do this. Don't do that. Do it this way. Do it that way. I've realized that having roommates of one's own age is much easier than living with people who know and talk to your parents. The Attic may be cheap, but it's just once removed from living with family.

I definitely need to save up for a new monitor as well. It seems like almost every "old" piece of electronics I own is suffering from one too many bumps over the years. My VCR hasn't worked in the longest time, and since having a VCR is not a necessity in life, I haven't replaced it. My monitor has been doing this flashing shit on the top three inches for ages, but it's gotten significantly worse since I left the thing turned off for two weeks at Christmastime. It used to be that if I turned my computer+monitor on and let it sit for a half-hour to forty-five minutes, the issue would pass and the screen would function normally. But now, effed up is the new norm. While this situation was tolerable before, it's beginning to drive me insane! Thankfully, I am not an epileptic ... Since I am computer-dependent, this is on an entirely different scale than the old Video Cassette Recorder!

I think it is time to sit down and reevaluate my goals and plans.
