Rocketgirl & Starboy: Star Catchers

I did a painting today. I'm setting a goal for myself to do at least one painting a week and I think it's something I can abide by unless I end up running out of ideas.
I barely got a wink of sleep last night due to my brother's snoring again. I think it was around 4 a.m. by the time I finally fell asleep for a good couple of hours, but I had to once again listen to music to drown out the snoring. I'm gonna pick up some ear plugs this weekend so that way next week I won't have to deal with this again... or I will buy my brother some nasal strips.
Work is so-so. I'm nearly done with modeling and have already started unwrapping some stuff for texturing. I hope to get a huge chunk of texturing done next week and possibly finish this stupid thing the following week. We shall see. As soon as I'm done with this thing, I'm quitting. I don't care if I have to get a temporary job working at a grocery store or as a game tester until I find something more permanent, I just need something to hold me over.
Hmmm... what else? Oh, heh, Washington Mutual is going bye bye, or rather it is. I think my mom had a checking account there or deposited the money she won earlier this year there. I hope it's safe. They say that the money will be safe, but I'm kind of worried about it. The economy is going downhill super fast and it makes me wonder if we will end up in another depression. How crappy that would be because I remember stories from my great grandma and how she lived through the Great Depression. It was not a good time at all for all
Americans. And what is this talk I hear about bailing out Wall Street with $700,000,000,000 (which mind you will basically come out of taxpayers' pockets)? Fuck that! Those rich bastards don't need saving, it's the poor and middle class that need to be saved! Here is the problem with this country, we just throw money that we don't have at a problem and hope to God it'll fix itself. I swear, there are idiots in DC that are running this country.
Why is Earth, Wind & Fire's "September" freaking stuck in my head?! Aghhhh!!!
