this is getting creeeeepy....

whilst bored out of my skull online last week i filled in info for a free horoscope, because they're always good for a laugh. and of course got a nice form-letter back yesterday telling me that i'd reap riches and find my true love and live a happy life full of abundance. and it was amusing to skim and delete.

suddenly today i've been talking to people mentioning that there's paying positions available in one place i've been volunteering time in that i should apply for because i seem to fit the position exactly, i've sent all my banking info for a side-job that probably won't pay too much but will nonetheless be some money, and i just got a call for a tutoring job starting this saturday. grade 10 social studies. pre-confederation canadian history. wheee. but anyways, it's money! and for three times a week, that's not going to be too bad....

on top of all that, i had an essay due last wednesday that i hadn't even properly started, let alone handed in. and 2 years ago when i had the exact same prof i was accused of plagiarism (unfairly, i say!) and handed work in late because of personal messes and had to rely on her goodwill to still accept papers from me. that's the only time i've gotten in such a mess academically, but if both of the two times i've had her as a prof i've asked for leeway, that's not going to look good. (talk about dumb luck..) so needless to say i was a little stressed about asking her for another extension. after speaking to her, she allowed me however long i needed (within reason) to finish the paper, before saying that really, if i wanted to, i could combine the two larger assignments that we have into one large research paper on one subject. so i'll do that instead. which cuts down on one more separate assignment, and means i only have to do a bit more research on one topic, instead of starting from scratch (relatively speaking) on two.

so it seems that things are looking up. all i have to do now is decide if i go to prague or not, and if so, when. but even that's sounding good - i'll definitely have a place to stay now if/when i go, and it will be cheap!

still, though. maybe i should have paid attention to when my "lucky" days were. i think one was march 5th....
