I probably should have wrote this a few days ago, but it still seems to be changing more and more.
- That coding job I did for the guy wasn’t actually giving me a run around for paying him. He actually did end up legitimately paying me a couple of days later.
- The site migration/server project I did is now online. There’s 3 sub sites to do, which unfortunately COULD be a bitch since they have more customized themes, but they might end up being very simple. We’re not sure yet.
- As for the job apps I did put in, well one place sounds like they already hired. However, one place is looking to interview sooner than expected since another person got a new job elsewhere. Also, 2 stores I looked at are hiring, and I found out an old school mate of mine is an assistant manager at a bank and has been looking to say hi to me.
- Biggest news of all: Dad is okay! It sounds like his blood pressure medicine somehow reacted with him very awkwardly (maybe in conjunction with other medicine he took). They kept him overnight, but all tests turned up negative for stuff like blood clots. So no strokes, no additional blood clots. He’s still in pain from the 28″ incision, but still nothing more severe.
So yeah, just gotta work out getting a job soon.

So I’ve got a lot of stress lately. I’ve got a project that I just completed whereby the client is apparently giving me the run around for trying to pay me. I also have some other work I want to do that isn’t going anywhere at the moment because the guy doesn’t seem to understand that I can’t do certain things for him YET until I get other equipment first and has yet to give me a list of other things to do.
I also have some small side work I am doing as a favor for some folks that is dealing with some code and server components that can be very frustrating, and it took me nearly a whole day just to get one feature of the site to work.
Also, since I moved I have yet to get a call about any applications I have put in and do not have my own funds to get around town to find said jobs easily. Everything within walking distance is pretty much mom and pop stores.
But the biggest issue just happened about 1 hour ago. My dad had vascular bypass surgery on Tuesday on his leg. A nice long cut along his leg to. He decided to smoke. After about 4 puffs my mom was trying to speak to him and all he could do was mumble for about 2 minutes.
So now he’s back IN the hospital and just arrived minutes ago. I have too much stuff going on and too much stress to want to be in the hospital, so I need to get out of this house for now.
tl;dr: my head is now ready to explode.
