we will rebuild, or die trying.

I retire to my bed for another nights sleep, but alas, I am not sleeping. My late night rituals are starting to get the best of me, and I’ve not posted a personal blog for a while now. I have been having a good few days now, uneventful, but stable. Work came back yesterday and it wasn’t as bad as I had anticipated it to be, though I was still without 2/3 of my last paycheck that has been owed to me since the 24th.

The good news came this morning when I went into work. I walked in and saw another package for me (I have been getting a steady stream for a couple weeks now), it was from Forge Again Records. I open it up, and my “Broken Bones and Bloody Kisses” 12″ LP was inside which got me so excited. I have a growing obsession with vinyl, and have been going about getting all my favourite bands and albums on any vinyl format which they have been released on. I used to do this with AFI (among other bands), but for the last couple of years, I sort of slowed down with it all. I am still waiting on a copy of Brand New’s “Daisy”, and as of 10 minutes ago, I am now waiting for a half black/blue copy of “Make Yourself Sick” (1/300).

Next good thing was my mom walking up to me and telling me she got me a Canada Post uniform parka. This is a big deal to me because I have been trying to get my hands on one for months now (the nature of the job I do does not entitle me to be able to just be given one). They are long and warm, but still aren’t very bulky, so they are perfect for running my mail around in.

Last of my good morning news came when I checked my bank account, I had finally received the money I was waiting for. This one was big. Though, aside from all that things are just what they are I suppose.

Over the past few days I have started to promote my site to try and stir up a little more traffic. This includes adding people to my music myspace (which I converted to one for my blog). While I know that no one really uses Myspace much anymore, I cant think of a free way to go about promoting myself. So here I am, messaging random people and sending mass adds like in the old days. I hope that people will read stuff and like what they see. So far I have been hearing good things, for all that is worth I guess.

Either way, I am now dozing off and losing my attention to Arrested Development. Goodnight internets.
