Feel free to ignore, I just wanted to change things up a bit.
Little updates: as expected, more ecological damage to both the stream behind the house and the back of my yard thanks to the awful neighbors. Because, when you remove a lot of very large, very gorgeous trees that have been there for more than 75 years (by the clear rings), the land just can't take it. It sinks down, in turn, destroying cable lines and sewage/water pipes that were situated there. So, all of that is not working for us, and the people who have to fix it are probably going to pull the old (now this is shit) tactic of 'splitting the bill between residents'. shit no, i'm not paying for someone else's mistake. even after i asked them NOT to tear out the trees. Oh, and to rub some more salt in that wound, they aren't filling the holes in their yard, the kids haven't played back there once (so whatever argument they were making there seems to have been for them), and they managed to upset both nature loving neighbors by taking away that line of privacy trees. I'm almost afraid to have a surveyor come out and mark out the lines, because my guess is they will short us so the 'kids have more room to play', while I lose my blueberry bushes. They've even refused to cut the grass at a normal hour. They start mowing in the dark (about 8 pm right now) and finish about 15 minutes later on a loud a hell riding lawn mower. I just want my trees back, and it really upsets me that my cathedral forest is gone. And i don't hate the kids, but damn I hate the screaming. I mean, i'm a quiet person by nature who loves animals, so it makes sense that loud, human voices would really get on my nerves (and that pet peeve has no limits in or out of the family). I guess my real issue is that the parents here used the kids as an excuse to cut down the trees, so I just group them all as 'that family'. what's worse, dad is planning to take out another of our last 2 big trees so his stupid maple will 'grow' (it's puny as sin), buttttt - as expected: no pool. No water feature. no water...at all. Well, shit man, why not just tell me you don't want me to have anything i want. I mean, it's not like you aren't trying to pretend i'm some clone of you or anything. Sorry i don't want to drive a rav4 like the neighbor girl- but i hate toyotas! Sorry i don't like tiny bushes you can stamp out in a moment- but i don't.
...i need a real vacation. From my life!
...i need money to buy land. Then i can have my nature. Got some cash saved up, but I'm, looking towards 20-50 acres of undeveloped land where i can have real trees and bushes. And a fence. around the whole humanly accessible area. So no one can just waltz right on in. For fuck sake lottery, throw me a damn bone here. anything would be nice...if i played more often then the >100grand.
Got the trim painted a bit more, and got the leather cut for the coat, so things are going well. Also, I almost have my arrancar Ichigo outfit finished, but i need to sew it together. And lost some weight (clothes are really loose now. Even underarmour is fitting loosely). I just need a pink scarf for Matsumoto and I'm set for the con! managed to get a bit more of the story written. Maybe some people would like to read a few oddball chapters to see if they can stand on their own? Volunteers? If i ever get this thing separated outside of one document, maybe i toss up one chapter on to DA.
Also, people who park in the fire lane are jerks. Your freedom just interfered with my safety, jackass. Thanks for parking in front of my chemical supplier's shop! No, totally not pressurized explosive potential in there- let's just park a car in front of the door EVERY. FRIGGEN. DAY.
Somebody buy me a place with land, please? Or maybe a nice drawing of a freer space without people? I'd be most appreciative.
