I did get to sleep in a bit - at this point, any day that I am allowed to sleep through sunrise feels like the most wonderful fucking vacation I've ever had in my entire fucking life - but I slept quite a bit later than I should have, so I missed the chance to catch the bus right outside the apartment (well, almost; the apartment is a three- or four-minute walk from the closest four-lane street, and that's where I go to get on the bus) and go all the way downtown, so I had to take a bus to the transit center and then take another bus downtown. I was honestly worried that I might not make it in time, but I was actually an hour early.
The point is: I'm fucking tired, and I have to wake up even earlier tomorrow. So I wish there were at least three more of me, because I want to
respond to a potentially awesome room-for-rent ad I found on CL
- read Part 4 of tanz_fanatika's House of Divinity (the first three parts have been blowing my mind)
- write, shoot, review, and upload my third Sit-Down Comedy video
- watch the Korra season two finale again so I can
- finally write down some of my thoughts about it, because my body is finally ready to talk about something other than why it was the greatest storygasm I've ever had EVER
- shoot some Ponies, maybe? (True story: This girl I know from Keystone has a five-year-old daughter now, and her daughter has seen some of my Pony pictures on Facebook, and she's started stealing her mom's camera to take pictures of her own toys because she wants to be a "photo grabber" when she grows up because I, Ryan Timothy Bish, have inspired her. So that's pretty cool. So I came back to, ugh, Facebook so I could encourage them both to check out my Pony Tumblr. Which they did. They love it. Yesssssssssss.)
- watch the latest episode of American Horror Story: Coven, preferably with Adam
wash as many dirty dishes as possible
- write any of the vast number of possible posts that have been chasing each other around my head lately, such as Life Lessons I've Learned from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic or 7 Vampires I Actually Like or Girls Who Kick Ass: Why They Matter - Bonnie Bennett or Girls Who Kick Ass: Why They Matter - Rachel & Cassie or Actual Facts About Apples or "Why" Depression Sucks, etc.
- start re-reading my favorite book of all time for the third (possibly fourth) time this year so I can begin taking notes for Girls Who Kick Ass: Why They Matter - Harriet M. Welsch
- et cetera, y'all.
P.S. He was there to ask questions & such at my first interview, but today was the first time I've actually worked with the Kitchen Manager. As we were hanging out and chatting, he brought up the subject of Hemp Fest, and that got us onto the whole legalization "issue," and he specifically asked what I thought of it, so I took a breath and said, "Well, I'm clinically depressed, so the fact that it's legal here is a huge plus for me; that's not gonna happen in Indiana any time soon, or possibly ever." And he was totally cool! He's not quite as fucked in the head as I am, but he's also had struggles with depression, so we were able to bond over our shared distrust of pharmaceuticals.* It was awesome.
*BY THE WAY: Just in case anyone is silly enough to misinterpret this: Personally, I've never taken pills to cope with my depression, and I never want to, ever, because of reasons. But if you take them and they work for you, I sincerely think that's great. It's just not for me for now.
