the (un)joy of living

Because I am sooooo peeved at life right now, I am going to act out my little form of rebellion right now by posting instead of being productive for the following reasons:
-The house is a pit
-I haven't had 'me' time in what seems like AGES
-The icing (I LOOOOOOVE icing) that we have to use for the decorating class I'm taking tastes sucky, and is full of nasty stuff for you (besides the fact it's horribly nutritional devoid of everything but fat and calories)
-the decorating class takes LOADS more time, energy, planning and MONEY than should be legal, and I kinda figured out that I suck at decorating. So much for my dreams of working at a bakery...
-Homework has been screaming at me for the last month and I can't focus on it to save my life
-My room is now a pit because I just spent the last half-hour turning it upside down, searching for receipts from MONTHS ago (the story of my life...)
-the more time I spend trying to be productive the more crap and lists continue to pile up. I'm suffocating in my own self-created world of lists
-WHY oh WHY does humanity have to do every single freaking thing on a COMPUTER!?!?!?!?! Why can't we do things the simple, old-fashioned way? We are NOT evolving for crying out loud, we should NOT act as if we have to make our lives as efficient as a computer hard drive!!!!!!!!!!
-Fall break seems to be arriving as quickly as cold molasses, but never mind that because I don't have classes on the days of the break!
-Christmas break will n.e.v.e.r. come fast enough
-Can we please not start talking about the holidays already? Or the new year? I need a break, not more stress of festivities piled upon my back!
-I'd really, really, really like to be able to put time on pause and just sit for a while. Just having a week that isn't chock-full of urgency would be a miracle.

Thank you very much for the gripe/dump/peeve session.
Procrastinating Peeved Polly

I really
cannot leave being such a grump pot. Much as I would like to.
 And, as the old song declares
Count your blessings, name them one by one
count your blessings, see what God hath done!
Count your blessings! 

Name them one by one, count your many blessings, see what God hath done.
So here's a blessing or two...although they're gonna be hard to think of!

-Three of my favorite songs have played in the last half-hour
-I couldn't do this before today:

-And it is filled with yummy pudding. Although my decorating skills still suck.
-The weather has been gorgeous this month. Unusual for October.
-I live in a free country
-I live with people who love me 
-The Lord does exceedingly abundantly more than I could ask or think
-Jesus lives inside my heart and is my closest friend
-Jesus is coming back soon! 

Yeah... that kinda puts things in perspective. =)
