Agunn1231's thoughts and life events

Well, this seems like a good place to talk a little bit more about who I am.
My name is Alex, as I said in my introduction post. I have a few interesting hobbies, i am a college student.
So on to the thoughts and daily life...
The past Few months have been interesting, for a while I worked at a local night club doing promotion, but the place went out of business. In July my fish died, in August I built myself a computer, then started yet another semester at a local community college. I am studying business, taking online classes this semester.
I'm having a tough time with my classes but at least I am trying.
Fast forward to today. Today has been a tough day for me. I forgot to eat today because I was busy with school work, almost passed out. Got some food in me, and for the last few hours I have been feeling kinda sad. Not sure why, especially as I have guests over. Kinda being an introvert. Today Hallie, my girlfriend, and I worked on putting up Halloween decorations, there is fake spider webs everywhere, I thibk it looks kinda cool. Last night Hallie and I watched a whole lot of Supernatural, it's a good show, I had never watched it before.
I have some awesome Carnivorous Plants (CP's). The biggest one is flowering, at the worst time too, as it's getting less sunlight. I cannot wait to move, my lease is up in march but I think I'm moving in December. The place I'm at is WAY TOO SMALL FOR 2 PEOPLE FOR THE PRICE I AM PAYING. I pay 800 for 400 square foot studio, I can get a 1 bedroom of 700 square feet for the same price.
So that's my musings for the time being, sorry it's so random, I think very strangely.

Yeah, your rent is a little high - my roommate and I rent a 3 bedroom house with electric included for $800, but we're also in the middle of nowhere.

Would love to see pics of your plants! They sound awesome :)

The only cure for ignorance is education, and bullying or attacking someone is no way to educate them.

Oh, he's beautiful! I wish I could keep plants alive, ha ha. Right now I'm trying desperately to keep a Gerbera Daisy alive, but he doesn't look well :/

It sounds normal. some plants will have issue eating, my sundew was a bit slow to eat. It is hard to tell without seeing the plant. If you want I can PM you some good resources on sundews.
