Bro got an offer for an internship at the place he went to interview last week. He has another interview (with a different company) today.
The withdrawals at least for now have decreased in their evilness. I still feel very 'blah', but I'm not jumping out of my skin anymore. I'm in the right mood to lie in bed and start working on the pile of books that I have been saving to read since the start of the previous academic year. I read maybe five books since February, including a couple by Matthew Reilly. I think it is amazing that he ever got published since his books are rubbish, but they are the kind of amusing rubbish that people seem to buy. Maybe that's his secret ;-)
Ordered a bunch of pretty Christmas cards today as couldn't find any that didn't look like from five years ago at the local store/post office/bank. I've started to make a list of presents and tallied up a budget, which however relies on either getting back what certian family members owe me or borowing from other family members until I get paid in January. I've probably said it before, but being paid quarterly just sucks.
