i do not want to go to work.

Work, work, work. Blah. Well, at least things seem a little less complicated with the whole marriage / australia thing. Unless, of course, immigration people from australia are reading this journal - which is as likely as the statue of liberty making a convincing case for me to stay in the country. no, i mean the actual statue, not a metaphor or something. i really really do not want to go to "work". there is so much writing to be done and i have only done a few paragraphs in the last few weeks, all of it last night. how pathetic. yeah, i'm a 'writer', right. like a photographer who takes one picture a month, right. blah.

I think that being in manhattan has made me more o.c.d. than i was before. but i think that naturally happens when you don't want to go insane drowning in a sea of your own possessions. because when you live in new york, unless you're a character on Friends or are independantly wealthy in some way, you're going to be probably living in a closet. so i quickly started to learn to put things together and organizing and straightening. and straightening and straightening and more straightening. which leads to more of the same.

On a side note, I got the Escaflowne box set yesterday and wow was it worth it. besides getting $50 off the list price i got a neato mecha figure. my first. I don't have much room for mechas in this tiny cramped apartment.

started writing a new go inside article last night. I have been writing for go inside magazine for the last two years now, as of this month. I think this is one of the few times i'm writing it out by hand first. Blah "work" is not being done by me now - should do so prior to getting shown the door to unemployment.....

longest fricking day ever, or so it has felt. i really just want this stupid work day to end soon, and according to some clocks that means forty minutes from now. but today i can't afford to waste time at home. i mean, no screwing around game fun or anything. i have writing to do, i have reading to do, and i have to write maybe one short story to submit for money - somewhere, i will find it in that stupid market book i paid good money for. schmuck that i am always buys market books and then lets them sit on the shelf. i've read a lot of interesting things about people who make zines and it makes me want to make one just because i want to get my writing out that much. maybe i'll self-publish the serial novel on paper just to, yes, just to put my writing out because not writing makes me sick, this job makes me ill when i think about it too much because there's no brain usage whatsoever. stupid filing and envelope stuffing and phone message taking. for this i went to college? it's not just a collection of "family circus" comics.
