This Is Not A Hotel!

I checked my archives and the last time my mother and sister slept over here was March 29th – two weeks ago.

I am getting tired of this! This is not a freakin’ hotel! They stay here because Mom doesn’t like walking in their neighborhood at night and she finished my hair too late. And whose fault is it that they live in a bad area in the first place?

And, of course, they don’t think it’s a big deal. They’re not the ones having their apartment used as a darn hotel! The year is not even half-over and already, they’ve spent the night more than twice. I still haven’t forgotten the two weeks during my winter break and the month of January. My uncle might not even come back tonight because they’re here and I don’t blame him. It is too cramped!

Not to mention my sister has been hogging my uncle’s netbook since they came here and we only have one plug, so I don’t want to use my laptop.

This night cannot go quick enough! They have no consideration for my needs and space. The reason they move so much is they can’t get along with neighbors. Gee, I wonder why? You can’t cramp three people into a small room and expect no complaining. You just can’t.

This is the last time they’re staying here because this is getting ridiculous. You’d think twenty-two years and two kids later, my mom would figure out how to plan ahead and learn from her mistakes. Obviously not.

Return to the Past

On April 6th, I rejoined one of my favorite websites: neopets.com. I’ve been a fan of the site since I was ten years old, when I first discovered it. Over those nine years, I’ve been through many accounts. I still remember the name of my very first account and it still hasn’t been purged. It’s merely frozen. Not that it really matters because I can’t access it since I’ve completely forgotten the password. Some of my other accounts are frozen and some aren’t. They just sit there with the status of “Last seen: A long, long time ago”. And of course, the designs for the user profiles don’t look right because the coding is outdated due to site updates.

The site has changed a lot since I first signed up for it. For better or worse is variable, but overall, I’m still pleased with the site.

In my own mind, I never actually quit the site. I would simply lose interest, forget to return, remember one day, create a new account because I forgot the password to my old one, play for a few months and it’d repeat. The site is in no way boring. It was more that I really didn’t try to get anything done. This time, however, I’m determined to stay on the site and work because I really don’t want to leave again. I want to be more active in the site, especially regarding their newspaper. Years ago, I had an article published and I’d love to do that again. When I’m able, I also want to use their premium service again. I enjoyed having it.

There’s a variety of things that attract me to this site, despite that it’s a “children’s site” and I really hope to get most, if not all, of the things I want there.
