Sorry for your loss, Deske.

Joy: I went to Confurgence (Australia's largest furry convention) and it was absolutely awesome! I had a great time!

Sorrow: It ended and I had to come home again.

Joy: I'm definitely going again next year and Telephone is going to be a guest of honour! :D

Sorrow: I have prelim exams this week. I did pretty bad on the one on Monday. I did study, not a lot, but I did. The things on the test however were mostly stuff I didn't really study on. I feel really bad...
Another Sorrow: I didn't realize exam that I had an exam scheduled YESTERDAY. I completely overlooked it and only found out yesterday.
A little Joy: I emailed my professor and he said he'll give me a make-up exam on Monday. I guess that's good.

Sorrow: One of my online friends has been having serious mental issues. I do like him a lot but I worry he might snap and end his life and I feel powerless to help him.
Joy: Other than that, my own life has been at least uneventful and peaceful.

Joy: So I reported to a new unit not too long before Christmas, and so far, I think I've been leaving a REALLY good impression on my superviser.

I've been given a spot in the shop is available to only one person at a time (well, technically two people, but one needs to go to a special school to hold the other spot because they do specialty work, so that spot is kinda hard to just stick someone new in), is actually a fairly sought after position, but is also one that shows a lot of trust in me because I could just as easily hide away half of the day instead of doing work on slow days.

Sorrow: I've been in the hospital for heart problems I've been having for the past few days.
Joy: I'm not in pain anymore and the heart problems are pretty easily treatable.
Sorrow: I have high cholesterol - meaning I'll need to make some lifestyle and dietary adjustments.
Joy: Had a nice breakfast in bed.
Sorrow: I'm sure that breakfast, and everything else, isn't going to be cheap. :?

Just finished watching Moana. Got that feeling again that happens whenever I watch those kind of movies. Pretty nice to be honest. It's kinda like excitement I guess.

Joy: Am really enjoying a little indie game called Night In the Woods.

Sorrow: My mother took a fall earlier today. Appears to only be minor, but left me a little rattled, worried and currently, watching.

Just looked that up. Backed a few Kickstarter indie games that look like they're going to be good. I'm most excited for Heartbound for now but the others ones won't be taking a back burner.

Sorrow: I can't tell if it's allergies or what but my throat hurts, it's impossible to breath through my nose and my eyes itch. Never had allergies before so this is a new level.

Joy: I have a job interview today after-school to be a waiter at an IHOP and I'm excited but nervous. This will potentially be much first job and I really hope I nail this interview.
EDIT: I got the job! But it doesn't open until mid May because it's still under construction.

Sorrow: RIP Chris Cornell (singer from Soundgarden and Audioslave) I wasn't super familiar with his work, but I could always pick out his voice when I heard a song I didn't know, and I love Black Hole Sun

Joy: been on summer break for a week now and it's going pretty good. Definitely needed those extra hours of sleep.
Super joy: as of the 27th I've been a furry for 3 years and discovered Housepets! 3 years ago. Crazy to think how time goes by.

Severe frustration: i was supposed to be working today, but head office apparently thinks the minimum hours per week my origional hiring was conditional upon is irrelevant now that the company is two months from shutting down.

Sorrow: Don't get indigestion often, but from what i'm told it makes your chest hurt. Very rarely does it happen to me, but when i drink pop it happens more often and sometimes makes me feel depressed, which really worries me. Worried it's my heart. Probably going to do a check-up on my vacation just to be safe.

And sorry to hear about the student loans and your frustrations, Buster. Hope they get taken care of soon :(
