Unhappy!Steph is unhappy.

So, a couple of days ago, I received an email in my inbox from the DE office at UW about one of the courses I'd taken. Telling me they hadn't received any of the three essays required for that course! And would you know it? Those and my other DE course's essays were the only ones for which back copies I had were stored on the home computer that went wonky and wiped. Double idiot that I am, I was the one who decided to be all cute and use the envelopes and labels provided in the course package to send my essays out instead of doing the smart thing like sending them electronically or physically handing them in at the office on campus. I go to school. It'd have been easy enough (you know, once I found the office, which... actually could've taken a while, knowing me).

All of this just goes to show that I'm a very silly, flighty person who is utterly incapable of taking care of herself and being ready in case bad things happen. And bad things always fucking happen. I should know this by now, more than anyone.

Still, wouldn't it kill someone on high to let things go right for once when it comes to academics? Just once? I haven't known that feeling since leaving high school, and for that one brief stint in Sheridan. Really.

On a less gloomy note--I love Vienna Teng. She has that pretty kind of sorta-mellow-but-still-melodic music that I can play softly and will keep me awake and working, but not distracted. Life savior. I really wish I knew where to get more, is all.

Now it's a toss-up whether I pass out or I get something to eat. Or maybe watch Supernatural. That might make me feel better. Nothing works better to stave off unhappiness like hot guys, hot cars, and the thrilling sensation of fear as I look outside my room into the darkness of the living room. I am such a wimp.
