So, within the past five months I've moved out of my folks place, had a spate of unemployment - wherein I put out upwards of 30-40 different applications (only six interviews and none panned out) - before my usual landscaping/gardening job started up and enrolled in classes at ITT (say what you will, I'm enjoying it).
My boss is starting to generate a lot of new work, so I suspect we'll be working a lot of long hours (7 hour long days, instead of 6) as well as long weeks (she's talking about working on Saturdays in addition to the usual M-F, at least until we get caught up on all the new clients she's getting). My commute to and from work is anywhere from 25 minutes to an hour and a half, depending on how ornery traffic is being. I've been getting up at 7 to be on the road by 8, so I can get to work by 9ish. On non-school days, I'm usually back by 5:15 on short days, and 6 or 6:30 on long days (tonight, it was almost 7).
Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays are when I have my classes. Mon/Wed are evening classes. They both start at 6 and run until 10ish (Mon runs later than Wed). I'm home by 10:30 or 11. Sat starts at 1 and is scheduled to go until 5:45, but usually gets out at 4. Monday and Wednesday, I usually go straight to bed when I get in.
Sunday's been gaming day. Starts at 12:30 or so, and goes until 10ish that night. It's broken up into two sessions: 12-4, 5-10.
Between all of that, I have to find time to do stuff like household chores, homework, yardwork, laundry and whatever else needs to be done (like eating, pooping and showering). I was called into a "staff meeting" by my one roommate, E, and we apparently have scheduled chore days now. Bit of backstory on her: E loves her lists and always being busy to the point of freaking out over how she has so much stuff to get done (all self-imposed stuff). Several years after she had graduated from college, she had been grading herself (as in, letter grades - A, B, C, etc.) on her various things she wanted to accomplish that year. She's a good friend, but she can be really difficult because she's very particular, and she has this way of making people feel like shit if they don't measure up to her expectations. I mention all of this because I don't think I'm going to be able to get in line with her chore schedule since most days I get home from work, I just feel like collapsing in a mindless heap.
I'm thinking I'm going to have to drop gaming and use Sunday as a sort of "Get everything else done" day. I can already see the writing on the wall, in that I don't think I'm going to have the luxury of being able to take an entire day off. It's gonna suck because, in addition to being roomies, I also game with E. It's gonna suck, but I don't honestly think I can get everything else I need to get done at any other time.
Anyway, just needed to vent.
