Try to not spend more time thinking about it that would be productive to, alright?

30 minutes until the anniversary of when this all started.

Made a little LP of the shareware episode of Doom 1, using the Brutal Doom mod, done in almost complete silence save for keyboard, coughing and a tiny bit of commentary near the end. It's probably really boring, but imo a fitting memorial. We used to play that bloody game all the time.

Thanks guys.

Christians Against Poverty (CAP) are now involved with my overdraft and almost £800 debt to work. Had a visit from them today and, once they did their preachy thing, were wonderful. Handing control of my current bank account to them and setting up a new account with a different bank. I signed a thing to give CAP permission to negotiate with creditors (employer and bank) on my behalf and I will pay a certain amount of money into my old account every month. They'll also be giving me a few food shops worth £40 each + budgeting classes.

CAP seem to be very well recommended even in the secular world, so yeah. Gets rid of a lot of stress.

Dragonite brings up a good point and I'll ask another; are you on the lease in any shape, way, or form? If so, I dunno how things work in the UK, but you have a ton of rights you can use in the States. I assume Law Professional Treed can probably dig up more than I can (certainly while I'm at work and just finishing my lunch right now, anyways).

Glad that you can move, even if it's a pain to do so again.

I'm actually more concerned about the reasoning. Sure, they are honest about it, but on a emotional level it must sting. Please talk about it if you need to get it out of your system Bog.

forgot to mention that they're invoking the housing act 1988 section 21

edit: okay just done a bit of research myself and i got this:

it is legal i think, as the agreement ends in june. ive not broken any rules and ive paid my rent on time.

I'm very sorry to hear that you're being kicked out of your flat, and it sounds like we could wriggle out of it based on the grounds they've given. Saying they don't want their son living with a guy with psychosis, regardless of their tone and apologies, sounds discriminatory. That is unless, of course, they can prove that you represent a real danger.

But, I do have less time these days than a month ago. I can go digging around in UK housing and rental law, but I'll wait until you've exhausted your other options. This other friend with the £50 cheaper rent sounds better for you anyways. Update us when you've had more time to see your options clearly. Then we'll talk about fixing this.

Don't forget you were gonna check your friend's place too. Check it out before anything else, it might be fine enough that you could not even want the trouble of keeping the old one.

Right sorry to keep you guys hanging. Sometimes the last thing you want to do is write about stuff, you know?

I've found a place to go. 8 other guys, 3 story house with basement. Rent is less and I'll have a bloody huge garden, so a BBQ is planned for my birthday in August. (And hey, if you feel like blowing a few hundred whatevers you'd totally be welcome. :P)

I am so fudge stressed. I plan to move on the 25th, which is next Saturday, or less than 9 days away. I can't motivate myself and my brain is constantly seeking immediate gratification, which isn't helped by the quetiapine. (Wow I hate that drug.)

Oof yeah. I've never sleepwalked (sleptwalked?) in any dangerous capacity but eventually in college I apparently figured out how to walk across a room and turn an alarm off in my sleep, which led to some good times

Ok so yesterday was move day. That makes today "sort my crap out" day. Yesterday was interesting.

I know a guy with connections, so I asked if he could hold of a van for me. He said he'd rock up with "a van and a few other people." I thought he'd meant him and maybe two others. Nope. Surprise! He turned up with about 10 people, half of whom were my friends and the other half I had never met before in my life. I was immediately told to chill and let them do everything, which was nice of them but I misbehaved slightly.

I had people I didn't even know going through my crumpets. Never been so touched my whole life.

I would have done the same thing (misbehave). It always drove me nuts in college when people helped me move in. It super drove me nuts when I was moving out last Monday and my friend insisted on taking my huge filing cabinets down the stairs and into the truck himself. Mostly because he actually did it and I felt like a weak little babyman. Ahnuld would be disappointed.

I dunno, it is a lot better than it used to be. I can actually make a phone call without going crumpets now. It's just the annoying little crumpets things like the number 7 and my name.

Sorry for the camera constantly facing down and the croakiness due to a sore throat, but you get the idea. Horrible filming right there.

Very impressed with the quality considering it's an iPhone 4. Never used it to film anything in the 2 years I've had it.

So far it is. Quite a bit cheaper and a lot less concretey. I loved my old place, but by heck it got lonely and it's nice to have a garden.
