    Good afternoon.

    Mmmm did someone say breakfast? When I read the word breakfast rashers and sausages, eggs beans come to mind. Serving a full irish today, you will get blood pudding too if lucky ;)

    Doctor ordered me to stay in bed today due to recurring migraines, so I will. :)

    This morning, therapy dogs came to my school, and I got to pet them. So cute. The only problem was there were tons of people gathering around them, so they were hard to reach sometimes. I have my psychology club meeting in about 2 hours. I don't know what it will be like or what we'll talk about. Maybe I'll hate it. I hope not. Then I have an evening class tonight. I really don't want to go, but I'm not going to let myself skip.

    I'm also stressed out about rugby. That's tomorrow, and I doubt I'll be ready.

    Making a "grape pie" today. :) It's in the oven now. My sister has made it, so it should turn out like a regular fruit pie...except it really does taste like grapes (like really rich grape jelly). Took ages because you have to squeeze the fruit out of each individual grape - 5 cups worth! Then cook that fruit on the stove, then mix in the skins and sugar and flour. Make the crust and bake. I hope it works...it should be yummy. *tries to lick grape juice from elbow*

    Still depressed about the work situation (being let go after giving my two weeks' notice). I had to scramble to reschedule doctor's appts (insurance ends on the last day of work). Guess I'm doing ok. I scheduled a day trip for next week to the city to keep me busy so I'm not sitting around awaiting for the new job to start. I went to the gym already and lots of time stretching out before me. I don't do well with lots of time on my hands. That's when those bad suicidal thoughts come back but I have been feeling good so maybe they won't be so bad.

    @Acy How was the pie? Did you bring some to share?

    @baywasp How was the club meeting?

    Today was incredibly hard again. I was cleaning the apartment and had to wipe most traces of my grandpa away, except for photos and war memorabilia and the like. Not an easy thing to do. We can't afford a funeral for him, but he can get buried for free, so that is a good thing.
    Also need to look for work soon...me and my mom both. If we don't make any income before next month, we are essentially broke. So it is very stressful right now.

    @Witty_Sarcasm Good luck with the jobsearch. Are there any agencies that can help you?

    It was okay. Not the most exciting. We mostly introduced ourselves and went over administrative stuff. But there were cookies :)
    Still not exactly sure what the club is going to be like on a week-to-week basis though.

    @baywasp clubs are a place to talk and chill sometimes. You can even ask other students if they know about any housing options.

    Hey Witty, I'm just wondering if the VA would help with funeral expenses? May be worth a call and see.

    Pie came out of the oven and is now cool enough to eat. *hands out pie all around* Tastes like grape jelly!

    He can get buried for free in a military cemetery, so that is good.
