As usual, I should be doing something else

I have a list of things to do today, including getting my brother up at 11:30 and walking around the house with my parents so my dad can point out things that need to be worked on while they’re at work, and—you know—my work, too. What’s happened since the last time I made a decent real-life post (sadly, more than a month ago):

1. My sister came out to New York to help me pack all my stuff. We put it into storage.

2. I was able to visit with my cousin, Jenny, and Uncle Doug for a night and the next morning before…

3. I moved out of my apartment in Brooklyn and took the Amtrak train home; I left New York City at 3:55 PM on June 30th and arrived in Los Angeles at 8:15 AM on July 3rd. You do the math.

4. I wrote a whole bunch while I was on the train (I’ll be posting the “train journal” sometime), including this, even though I wasn’t able to post it until after I had internet service again in Los Angeles.

5. I finished Kuroshitsuji (recommended!) and have now officially watched all of House, MD (five seasons). My brother practically force-fed me all of Gurren Lagann as well, so I’ve seen that, too; it was also good, if you liked Eva (by the same guy). I’m currently going through Death Note; next up is Ouran, Chrno Crusade, and Matantei Loki Ragnarok… in no particular order.

6. On July 4th, I celebrated by attending Anime Expo 2009, which was a blast. I wore my yukata and hakama since it’s like the only time I ever get to wear the outfit without feeling out of place. I bought a bunch of yaoi at Expo, of course.

7. I’ll be officially starting my internship with Etruscan Press tomorrow (it will last until late November). I’m still working on my M.A. manuscript, which will be re-presented along with all my MFA stuff for my MFA graduation next January.

8. I still don’t have work. I don’t expect that to change any time soon, in part because there is no work and in part because I’m not looking very hard at the moment. I’m living with my family right now and will deal with… stuff… as it comes along.

I’m tired. I have a lot to do and it seems like never enough time in which to do it.
